Liber LXV, Cap. V, v. 19-21
19. Accept the worship of the foolish people, whom thou hatest. The Fire is not defiled by the altars of the Ghebers, nor is the Moon contaminated by the incense of them that adore the Queen of Night.
20. Thou shalt dwell among the people as a precious diamond among cloudy diamonds, and crystals, and pieces of glass. Only the eye of the just merchant shall behold thee, and plunging in his hand shall single thee out and glorify thee before men.
21. But thou shalt heed none of this. Thou shalt be ever the heart, and I the serpent will coil close about thee. My coil shall never relax throughout the æons. Neither change nor sorrow nor unsubstantiality shall have thee; for thou art passed beyond all these.
"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."

19 however people react to your Work, don't be "insulted" by it; each individual & group will be drawn to act in accordance with their Nature, and the essence of it is Love - let each love however he/she is capable of

20 you will be crystallized, intense, visibly similar to all around, but different in quality (of vibration/frequency) not

21 but all of this, though of importance in the practical sense, is the outer, not the essential. The Union of heart & the Serpent is Eternal. Changes bought forth by Initiation are essential to the very being of the soul (individual hum. consc.)
Change, sorrow, unsubstantiality - here as shadow sides of 2, 3 & 1?
"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."
