Liber LXV, Cap. IV, v. 62-63
62. At thy right hand a great lord and a comely; at thy left hand a woman clad in gossamer and gold and having the stars in her hair. Ye shall journey far into a land of pestilence and evil; ye shall encamp in the river of a foolish city forgotten; there shall ye meet with Me.
63. There will I make Mine habitation; as for bridal will I come bedecked and anointed; there shall the Consummation be accomplished.
"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."

Maybe referring to Paths Zayin and He (the Hierophant figure in ATU VI)? Or simply both male & female principle, in their most dignified form, and how they appear in Mal'kooth; they are, respectively, on the right and left side of the Adept - as companions, aids?
The land of pestilence & evil: 6=5 work. It ultimately leads to the Supernals; from these perspective, Angel = Hak'mah, Adept = Biynah, consummation = Daleth.

The overall message of these verses seems to be: there's Work to so & steps to "climb" - Initiation continues; "the end thereof" is the all-consuming union of Will & Love.
"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."
