Liber LXV, Cap. I, v. 50-52

50. Adonai spake yet again with V.V.V.V.V. and said:
The earth is ripe for vintage; let us eat of her grapes, and be drunken thereon.
51. And V.V.V.V.V. answered and said: O my lord, my dove, my excellent one, how shall this word seem unto the children of men?
52. And He answered him: Not as thou canst see.
It is certain that every letter of this cipher hath some value; but who shall determine the value? For it varieth ever, according to the subtlety of Him that made it.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

Each person has their own relationship with Adonai, and with the text. These relationships are living, unique, just like the people themselves, for the colors are many, but the light is one. No one person can say they understand how everyone else is connected to that light.
The Sun, strength & sight, light.

Master (Biynah) receives the influx from Hak'mah, and understands the necessity of transmitting the Teaching ("ripeness of the earth for vintage" and enjoyment of it, "being drunken thereon"). Will it be accepted, recognized, how shall those for whom it is delivered see it? Each person will understand it individually according to their own nature and current level of development. The subtlety of Him that made it points to the work of Spirit in each soul.

Vintage - the best of it's kind - although three definitions of vintage allude to the concept of time. It seems Adonia is instructing to eat of the grape rather than the wine and be drunken. The time is now of ripeness - the grape itself is full of intoxication , the wine yet to be will be superlative.
The scribe wonders of this, maybe that people cannot see the earth, or the grape or the wine. So how shall it seem?
Adonai says that word has already flowered into fruit. The point of view of the word varies according to Hadits relation to the tongue taste of each.
