The Lilith Lie
From what I have gathered, many of you think of the WoS as an evil temptress consort to the nobody.
Does this remind you of anyone else...?
I cannot help but remember that God felt the same way about Lilith, and cast her out.
She was despised, and is often considered the consort of Lucifer.
The thing is, the Anomally is Lucifer himself.
Redemption is the theme of the new aeon, the word that has been forgotten and lost and which crowley failed to declare.
If lucifer struggles to be redeemed to the zeitgeist, Lilith struggles even moreso because she has been shunned, forgotten, and discarded.
Her secrets are so great, so deep, so unfathomally vast that consciousness cannot bear to even look upon her shadow.
@the cry of the third aethyr
There is a mocking voice: Thou art become immortal. Thou wouldst look upon the face of the Magician and thou hast not beheld him because of his Magick veils.
(Don't torture me!)
Thus are all they fallen into the power of Lilith, who have dared to look upon his face.
The shew-stone is all black and corrupt. O filth! filth! filth!
And this is her great blasphemy: that she hath taken the name of the First Aethyr24, and bound it on her brow, and added thereunto the shameless yod and the tau for the sign of the Cross.
She it is that squatteth upon the Crucifix, for the nastiness of her pleasure. So that they that worship Christ suck up her filth upon their tongues, and therefore their breaths stink25.
I was saved from that Horror by a black shining Triangle, with apex upwards26, that came upon the face of the sun.
And now the shew-stone is all clear and beautiful again.
The pure pale gold of a fair maiden's hair, and the green of her girdle, and the deep soft blue of her eyes.
Note. --- In this the gold is Kether, the blue is Chokmah, the green is Binah.
Thus she appeareth in the Aethyr, adorned with flowers and gems. It seems that she hath incarnated herself upon earth, and that she will appear manifest in a certain office in the Temple.
I have seen some picture like her face; I cannot think what picture. It is a piquant face, with smiling eyes and lips; the ears are small and pink, the complexion is fair, but not transparent; not as fair as one would expect from the hair and eyes. It is rather an impudent face, rather small, very pretty; the nose very slightly less than straight, well- proportioned, rather large nostrils. Full of vitality, the whole thing. Now very tall, rather slim and graceful; a good dancer.
There is another girl behind her, with sparkling eyes, mischievous, a smile showing beautiful white teeth; an ideal Spanish girl, but fair. Very vivacious. Only her head is visible, and now it is veiled by a black sun, casting forth dull rays of black and gold.
