Liber LXV, Cap II, v. 55-56
55. Then let the End awake. Long hast thou slept, O great God Terminus! Long ages hast thou waited at the end of the city and the roads thereof.
Awake Thou! wait no more!
56. Nay, Lord! but I am come to Thee. It is I that wait at last.
"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."

A common theme that has come up for me, but also one that is pertinent to all sorts of things in life comes up for me here. There is the idea of striving, awaiting, and then finding that from the beginning that which was sought was always there. As humans we have all the tools needed to chizzle away the imperfections that blind us from our true nature. The moment of realization is here now and all the striving and waiting is necessary to realize that it was always here now. So I'll do my best to keep at it wherever I am in orbit.

The total surrender of ego to the Angel is perceived by the mind as verily a Final experience, an irrevocable & definite End - of everything one was and did before. (The words used indicate Saturn/Biynah symbolism.)

This End is desired - the whole of Adept's being aches for it; but there is nothing more to do to achieve it; having come to this point, it's now time for the Adept to be stilled and simply wait - be an open, receptive Cup for the Spear of Adonai.
