Tolerance


We should always be grateful of every challenge to our egos that may come; it reminds us of the illusion of control we think we have.

 In this form it is but a liberation, and there can be no blame attributed to anybody but ourselves for not upkeeping the Work. And should we forfeit the Work, we also cannot blame anything external, since the scale of our limitations and capacity for Work-load depend upon how adjusted we are to the Work itself. In neither of these instances can there be blame cast upon Nature or Life itself; and also because the nature of our existence is also Nature, and Nature cannot/does not blame us for our limitations.

Stubborn people are in most cases, the greatest blessings because they are so insufferable; to the mutable individual, they can learn a lot about themselves and the world by being subjected to the frustration of dealing with these people (and they are given all the time in the world to, since stubborn people rarely change their minds). 

There is absolutely no obligation to help the fixed be mutable. They are unfit for the Work, and this is all part of Universal Will. Each star is and can only be responsible for himself. Thus, if there be success, he will understand that he, as a star is both One with None and One with Many.

II:21. “We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit; let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world. Think not, o king, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: verily thou shalt not die, but live. Now let it be understood: If the body of the King dissolve, he shall remain in pure ecstasy for ever. Nuit! Hadit! Ra-Hoor-Khuit! The Sun, Strength & Sight, Light; these are for the servants of the Star & the Snake.”
