“Awake from dream, the truth is known: awake from waking. The truth is: The Unknown”
“Dreams are imperfections of sleep; even so is consciousness the imperfection of waking.
Dreams are impurities in the circulation of the blood; even so it’s consciousness a disorder of life.

Awake from dream, the truth is known: awake from waking. The truth is: The Unknown”
“The more necessary anything appears to my mind, the most certain it is that I only assert a limitation.”
“This is the Night wherein I’m lost, the Love through which I am no longer”
“Keep on acquiring a taste for what is naturally repugnant; this is an unfailing source of pleasure.”
“For when all is equilibrated, when all is beheld from without all, there is joy, joy, joy that is
but one facet of a diamond, every other facet whereof is more joyful than joy itself.”
“In the wind of the mind arises the turbulence called I.
It breaks; down shower the barren thoughts.
All life is choked.
This desert is the abyss wherein the Universe.
The Stars are but thistles in that waste.
Yet this desert is but one spot accursed in a world of bliss”
“doubt is a good servant but a bad master; a perfect mistress, but a nagging wife.”
“Early to bed and early to rise Makes a man healthy and wealthy and wise: But late to watch
and early to pray Brings him across The Abyss, they say.”
“Thoughts are false.”
Aleister Crowley, The Book of Lies, 1913
