APPENDIX N°. 15
From the book
“The Perfect Way”
 ,by Anna B. Kingsford & Edward Maitland
THE SECRET OF SATAN
 (1)
 AND on the seventh day there went forth from the presence of God a mighty angel full of wrath andconsuming, and God gave unto him the dominion of the outermost sphere.
2.
Eternity brought forth Time; the Boundless gave birth to Limit; Being descended into Generation.
3.
  As lightning I beheld Satan fall from heaven, splendid in strength and fury.
4.
  Among the Gods is none like unto him, into whose hand are committed the kingdoms, the powerand the glory of the worlds;
5.
 Thrones and empires, the dynasties of kings, the fall of nations, the birth of churches, the triumphsof Time.
6.
 They arise and pass, they were and are not; the sea and the dust and the immense mystery of spacedevour them.
7.
The tramp of armies, the voices of joy and of pain, the cry of the new-born babe, the shout of the warrior mortally smitten;
8.
 Marriage, divorce, division, violent deaths, martyrdoms, tyrannous ignorances, the impotence of passionate protest, and the mad longing for oblivion;
9.
 The eyes of the tiger in the jungle, the fang of the snake, the fetor of slaughterhouses, the wail of innocent beasts in pain;
10.
 The innumerable incarnations of Spirit, the strife towards Manhood, the ceaseless pulse andcurrent of Desire; –
11.
These are his who beareth all the Gods on his shoulders; who establisheth the pillars of Necessity and Fate.
12.
 Many names hath God given him, names of mystery, secret and terrible.
13.
 God called him Satan the Adversary, because Matter opposeth Spirit, and Time accuseth even thesaints of the Lord.
14.
  And the Destroyer, for his arm breaketh and grindeth to pieces; wherefore the fear and the dreadof him are upon all flesh.
15.
  And the Avenger, for he is the anger of God; his breath shall burn up all the souls of the wicked.
16.
  And the Sifter, for he straineth all things through his sieve, dividing the husk from the grain;
 
discovering the thought of the heart; proving and purifying the spirit of man.
17.
  And the Deceiver, for he maketh the False appear true and concealeth the Real under the mask of Illusion.
18.
  And the Tempter for he setteth snares before the feet of the elect; he beguileth with vain shows,and seduceth with enchantments.
19.
 Blessed are they who withstand his subtlety; they shall be called the sons of God, and shall enter inat the beautiful gates.
20.
 For Satan is the doorkeeper of the Temple of the King; he standeth in Solomon’s porch; he holdeththe Keys of the Sanctuary;
21.
 That no man may enter therein save the anointed, having the arcanum of Hermes.
22.
 For Satan is the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom.
(Ps. A.V. cxi., D.V. cx. 10; Is. xi. 2, 3. The first and “eldest of the gods” in the order of microcosmic evolution, Saturn(Satan) is the seventh and last in the order of macrocosmic emanation, being the circumference of the kingdom of which Phoebus (wisdom) is the centre.)
23.
 He is the devourer of the unwise and the evil: they shall all be meat and drink to him.
24.
  Whatsoever he devoureth, that shall never more return into being.
25.
 Fear him, for after he hath killed, he hath power to cast into hell.
26.
 But he is the servant of the sons of God, and of the children of light.
27.
 They shall go before him, and he shall follow the steps of the wise.
28.
 Stand in awe of him and sin not; speak his name with trembling; and beseech God daily to deliverthee.
29.
 For Satan is the magistrate of the Justice of God; he beareth the balance and the sword,
30.
 To execute judgment and vengeance upon all who come short of the commandments of God; to weigh their works, to measure their desire, and to number their days.
31.
 For to him are committed Weight and Measure and Number.
32.
  And all things must pass under the rod and through the balance, and be fathomed by thesounding-lead.
33.
 Therefore Satan is the Minister of God, Lord of the seven mansions of Hades, the Angel of themanifest worlds.
34.
  And God hath put a girdle about his loins, and the name of the girdle is Death.
35.
 Threefold are its coils, for threefold is the power of Death, dissolving the body, the ghost, and thesoul.
 
36.
  And that girdle is black within, but where Phoebus strikes it is silver.
37.
 None of the Gods is girt save Satan, for upon him only is the shame of generation.
38.
 He hath lost his virginal estate; uncovering heavenly secrets, he hath entered into bondage.
39.
 He encompasseth with bonds and limits all things which are made; he putteth chains round aboutthe worlds, and determineth their orbits.
40.
 By him are Creation and Appearance; by him Birth and Transformation; the day of Begetting andthe night of Death.
41.
 The glory of Satan is the shadow of the Lord; the throne of Satan is the footstool of Adonai.
42.
 Twain are the armies of God; in heaven the hosts of Michael; in the abyss the legions of Satan.
43.
 These are the Unmanifest and the Manifest; the free and the bound; the virginal and the fallen.
44.
  And both are the ministers of the Father, fulfilling the Word divine.
45.
 The legions of Satan are the Creative Emanations, having the shapes of dragons, of Titans, and of elemental gods;
46.
 Forsaking the Intelligible World, seeking manifestation, renouncing their first estate;
47.
  Which were cast out into chaos, neither was their place found any more in heaven. 
(2)
48.
EVIL is the result of limitation, and Satan is the Lord of Limit.
49.
 He is the Father of Lies, because Matter is the cause of Illusion.
50.
 To understand the secret of the Kingdom of God, and to read the riddle of Maya, this is to haveSatan under foot.
51.
 He only can put Satan under foot who is released by Thought from the bonds of Desire.
52.
 Nature is the allegory of Spirit; all that appeareth to the sense is deceit; to know the Truth, thisalone shall make men free.
53.
 For the kingdom of Satan is the house of Matter; yea his mansion is the sepulchre of Golgotha, wherein on the seventh day the Lord lay sleeping, keeping the Sabbath of the Unmanifest.
54.
 For the day of Satan is the night of Spirit; the manifestation of the worlds of Form is the rest of the worlds informulate.
55.
 Holy and venerable is the Sabbath of God; blessed and sanctified is the name of the Angel of Hades;
56.
  Whom the Anointed shall overcome, rising again from the dead on the first day of the week.
