Liber LXV, Cap II, v. 35-36
35. Where is now the Master? cry the little crazy boys.
He is dead! He is shamed! He is wedded! and their mockery shall ring round the world.
36. But the Master shall have had his reward.
The laughter of the mockers shall be a ripple in the hair of the Beloved One.
"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."

The little crazy boys - "common sense"? minds of people around, or even the disciples of the Adept?
The outer expressions (what is visible to others) of this experience of Unity, provoke mockery among people. For the Master, each phenomena is perceived as an aspect (and by itself beautiful) of this intimate, sacred relationship.

Also, they're referred to as "boys" - masculine ego-expressions, and not mature ones at that!
