Liber LXV, Cap. III, v. 3-4
3. Then the word of Adonai came unto me by the mouth of the Magister mine, saying: O heart that art girt about with the coils of the old serpent, lift up thyself unto the mountain of initiation!
4. But I remembered. Yea, Than, yea, Theli, yea, Lilith! these three were about me from of old. For they are 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 word Adonai, the presence/expression of the HGA, comes by the the mouth of the Magister, his. Confusing a bit to me on reading. The point of view of the scribe, Adept, Master comes into play here I think. A demonstration of divine inspiration hitting the world of Assiah (action) via the path downwards from the other 3 worlds: Atziluth to Briah to Yetzirah to Assiah.

Hierarchy is an interesting thing and necessary I think - every thing has its place so to speak. It's simultaneously true, I think, that every "thing" is every other "thing" at the same time. However, for the sake of convenience and according to the limitations of our consciousness and our mortality we do have lines of delineation that occur naturally. The child needs a certain message, the teenager another, the young adult yet another. Otherwise comprehension would go by the wayside.

The initiate (or man?) is compelled to reach further and higher - more within - on the path of Initiation.

There's a call/pull from Neshamah "upward", to continue the motion of initiation. But the attention of the Adept is brought (by memory) to Nephesh, its long-time presence and the power it has had over the psyche.
"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."
