Begone! ye mockers; even though ye laugh in my honour ye shall laugh not long:
then when ye are sad know that I have forsaken you." Liber al vel Legis 2-56
Crowley could not explain this verse. He thought it referred to some future event and he was confused
by the apparent paradox within. How could a star, a part of creation and filled with the light of Hadit, be forsaken by Hadit?
Crowley suggested that the verse might be similar to the Biblical reference to unpardonable sin.
Could the mocking of Hadit, the invisible energy of creation, be comparable to the blasphemy of the Holy Ghost and thus be
unpardonable unto eternal damnation?
I believe the damnation theory is very close to the truth in this case. Like most of the Bible record,
however, it is a twisted concept of reality.
Crowley did not live at a time when the information was available to him to interpret all of the
secrets in the Book of the Law. Nuit warned in Verse 56 of Chapter One: "All words are sacred and all
prophets true; save only that they understand a little; solve the first half of the equation, leave the second unattacked.
But thou hast all in the clear light, and some, though not all, in the dark."
Psychic and remote viewer Aaron C. Donahue only recently discovered that the Earth, in addition
to being a sentient being, also is a soul generator. The planet, as a living being, contains the soul of all mankind. Thus
the planet is truly our Mother Earth. It is from her that we spring, and into her that we return following our brief time
in this third dimensional existence. The soul, or spark of light connecting us to the creator, springs from the Earth. That
is the energy of Hadit.
In spite of our dreams of space exploration and the science fiction concept of colonizing other
planets in the universe, and thus keeping the human race regenerated for thousands if not millions of years, we discover that
our roots are planted deeply in the soil under our feet. If this planet dies, our soul perishes with it.
The blasphemy has been our irresponsible stewardship of the Mother. In pursuit of the false god
of materialism and wealth, we have ravaged our planet, mined its minerals, desecrated its forests, streams, air and soul,
and done all of this without thinking of the consequences.
Now, as the few remaining oxygen generating trees are dying, exotic disease sweeps the land, the
animals become extinct, our food supply runs short, our water supply is too polluted to drink and we choke on the polluted
air, the understanding of Hadit's warning begins to make sense.
The concept of the living Mother Earth is ancient. It is still believed and practiced by the indigenous
tribes in various corners of the world, as it is among those who practice Gnosticism. But the false angelic-driven cults of
the major world religions have taught mockery of truth, and fear of an avenging god. These same systems have brought us materialism
and suppression of all acts of joy and freedom.
Thus Hadit charges the followers of such systems are but "mockers" who have laughed "in my honor."
An old and little-used interpretation of the word honor is the center point of the upper half of a shield of armor. It is
where the crest of the armor bearer is usually placed.
In this subtle way, Hadit identifies himself as an avenging warrior. "Though
ye laugh in my honour ye shall laugh not long," he warns the masses that turn their backs on the truth. "Then
when ye are sad know that I have forsaken you."
Donahue warns that when the planet dies, the soul goes with it. Once this happens, all memory, all
personal identity, all of the information that exists in the collective consciousness of the universe, will be destroyed.
The rag-tag, choking, hunger ravaged remaining members of humanity will cling to what little life
they have left because they know that once they die, the are no more.
This is the deep sadness. They will know they are forsaken. They will at last understand the true
meaning of unpardonable sin. But it will be too late.
