LXX

I reel from Your wine, my face becomes ashen;

Abiding alone, its name is compassion.

Curse the black brothers and their delusion!

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

The Law of Righteousness. By Ananda Maitriya. (Allan Bennett)

“Because you have so augmented the evil your nature, because you have increased its Hatred and its Self-delusion, you have damaged yourself far more than all the violence of pain or death could hurt your victim, for there is no greater suffering than Ignorance, and it is the Ignorance of byegone lives which is the chiefest cause of whatsoever suffering we now endure.” [via]

“It is the darkest hour in all the evolution of a man, this realisation that the Self that he has striven to perfect and work for is no more than a delusion;-but it is also the darkest hour which goes before the dawn;-for soon that darkness passes, giving way to the light of a deeper and surer Wisdom”
