The Sadness Of Personal Loss
"Sacrifice cattle, little and big: after a child. But not now. Ye shall see that hour, o blessed Beast, and thou the Scarlet Concubine of his desire! Ye shall be sad thereof. Deem not too eagerly to catch the promises; fear not to undergo the curses. Ye, even ye, know not this meaning all." Liber al vel Legis 3:12-16
It is said that every major prophecy is proceeded by the occurrence of a minor event. Alsteir Crowley, who received the Book of the Law in 1904, lost a son two years later. Crowley thought he was the great Beast. Crowley considered this verse a direct reference to his own tragic loss.
The major event is yet to occur.
There is, indeed, great tragedy outlined in these words. The word cattle does not necessarily mean livestock, nor do I believe that is the meaning in this verse. An old English translation for the word is masses of people.
Knowing this gives the verses clearer understanding. The events to come will bring about the sacrifice of masses of people, both little and big. A definition for "sacrifice" is the destruction or surrender of something for the sake of something else. The implication is that millions, if not billions of people must be "sacrificed" so that Eden can be reinstated.
The verse implies that the killing begins "after a child" dies.
"Ye shall see that hour, o blessed Beast, and thou the Scarlet Concubine of his desire!"
The message points to the Beast. Is it he and his "Scarlet Concubine" who produce a child that dies just prior to the "sacrifice" of the masses? Or is it a child known to the Beast?
These will be dark times. "Ye shall be sad thereof."
I have chosen to include Verse 16 with this foreboding message because I think there is a connection. The messenger continues with: "Deem not too eagerly to catch the promises; fear not to undergo the curses." The Beast is instructed to rush not into the fray even though he will be eager. While there are promises of great victory and fulfillment, there also is great trouble and sadness ahead. In spite of this, the Beast must not fear his task.
"Ye, even ye, know not this meaning all."
An interesting verse. Taken literally, it suggests that neither Crowley nor the Beast will fully understand the message contained here. Yet because they know Not, they know the energy of Hadit, which is for them, means "all."
