Through this we may see the first will-to-meaning in the struggle between the secret gravity of our end being ahead and behind us, and our constant attempt to create a beginning, an eternally present moment, right now.
It is at first apparent that everything is dying, the undoing, the negation, resonates throughout everything, a Cerberus that barks in warning: ‘do not enter, no one ever returns.’
Yet, in passing through the gates he guards, one is immediately overwhelmed by how alive everything is,
standing in contrast to the pessimistic cry that had set a pall upon the world; all living beings, screaming together ‘I am!’ defiantly against the coming of the dawn. Should we choose life, accept it fully as it is without
doctoring, we must join in to this chorus with all of our strength, become a part of the song rather than an individual standing outside, merely listening in rapt attention.
For those who would cling to a static solution, whether it be a canon, manifesto, or the words of an orator or messiah, I would recommend they take Crowley’s words to heart: ‘O ye who dwell in the dark night of
the soul, beware most of all the herald of the dawn!’"
