FOREWORD
Greetings! In this book is offered a new religion. All Gods are honored, celebrated and praised as aspects of the One True God, by whatever Name or Names you call God. What is offered below is based on the Qabalistic Tree of Life and the Thelemic Pantheon. It may, however, be adapted and used by anyone of any religious background or preference, the atheist and the agnostic. What is shown is a means to an end, which is Magickal and Spiritual Enlightenment. Every person, no matter who you are, will benefit from reading this book. Simply reading and studying what is offered in this book will, in and of itself, plant holy seeds within the consciousness of the reader, which will take root and grow over time in a healthy way. Whether you perform the ceremonies suggested below, physically or mentally, is another matter. They are recommended. However, simply studying the rituals, the Oaths and the philosophy offered in this book will further your Initiation and assist you in performing and accomplishing the Great Work which you have been placed on this Earth to do. Within the confines of this book is offered a complete System of Initiation. The Work to attain the most exalted states of Initiation is addressed in such a way that, if the student uses what is offered with a sincere, humble and devoted heart, nothing else is needed. All the guidance you need is here. The writer has been charged to assist in the magickal, spiritual and material evolution of mankind by offering a new approach to Initiation which is more “in step” with the present times. The practice of Magick is a noble art and science. It is not “dark” in any way. To the contrary, the Work is of the nature which dispels darkness or ignorance. Too much light is blinding. So we step into the Light in “little” steps. Each step is taken with care and due consideration of the evolving perspective. Nevertheless, a cover to cover reading of this book is encouraged at the inception to get a “big picture”. This will assist in gaining perspective on the Way of Return along the Royal Path of Initiation. Our lives are a great and wondrous magickal and spiritual adventure. Each of us is the main figure in a Great Divine Drama. Life presents opportunity, no matter what your circumstances may be. You are given the opportunity to embrace Truth and Justice in all of your experiences, which requires courage. You wear the Crown of God. This is Truth. You are being guided and moved in all that you do. Initiation involves Becoming aware of your True Nature so you may emulate Divine Being. If you can approach the Work with an open mind and an almost Childe-like innocence and attitude, your Eye may be opened to the wonder of Life and the magickal nature of all your experiences. No matter what has occurred in your life, no matter where you are or what you have done, you have a chance to rise fresh each day, to make a new life for yourself and to influence the lives of those around you. We practice Magick through how we live our lives, and through the symbols we are given, which includes family and friends, business acquaintances and others we encounter in our lives. By being a Source of Light and Love, by being a Source of Truth and Justice, we further our own Initiations and assist others in their Initiation.

This book is given as a tool. May you take the time to use it to change your life and assist in changing the lives of others. May the Blessings of the Most High be upon you and yours. Amen.

INTRODUCTION
The Sanctuary's System of Initiation is based on a series of Oaths of Initiation, some relating to the Sephiroth, and others relating to the Paths, on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. These are discussed in the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation, which tells a story of Initiation (and, for this reason, is best to be read in its entirety). The Guide also provides fairly detailed information on how to structure your work using the Oaths of Initiation. These are designed to be used in tandem with the Ritual of the Stars, which is an evolved (and evolving) form of ritual described in the Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars. The fundamentals of the Sanctuary's System of Initiation are set forth in the following documents: The Guide to the Oaths of Initiation The Oaths of Initiation for the Sephiroth The Oaths of Initiations for the Paths The Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars You are encouraged to begin using the Sanctuary's System of Initiation if it appeals to you. It is the basis of all magickal, mystical and initiatory work through the Sanctuary. Alternatively, may this information assist you on the Royal Path of Initiation no matter what System of Initiation you use. In offering this System of Initiation, we seek to reach and initiate more Children than have thus far been reached by other magickal orders and religious establishments which have previously manifested. We are guided that this can be done by dispensing with some old ways, and bringing in a fresh approach which is more in tune with our times. Our Work is to assist with the magickal, spiritual and material evolution of the human race by providing an approach to Initiation which is healthy, balanced and focused, and usable by all no matter what religious background you may have or come from. You are encouraged to dispel skepticism through direct experience. May the information available in this Book, and our work through the Sanctuary of Thoth, assist you in evolving as a source of Light and Love to others and the entire Universe. And so do we heal the human race and accomplish the Great Work of Thelema here on Earth and throughout the Planes, to the Glory of the Goddess!

] The floor of your Sphere is lifting you up the Tree of Life. which you have learned in your prior work. The first step is to organize the elements within your Sphere according to one of the Pentagram formulae. The Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel is the Sephirotic aspect. Spirit is the “elemental” aspect of the work. This assists in illustrating through imagery an aspect of the work of the Dominis Liminis. and move through them. it is recommended that you look up the Pillars of the Great Tree and down the Pillars of the embodied Little Tree. This is of a general nature on the Spiritual or Macrocosmic Plane. (The Yitziratic Hexagrams are used to work directly with the Sephiroth and Paths on the Yitziratic Tree of Life. The third step is to formulate the Pillars of the Great Tree within your Sphere on an initiated basis at this stage of the work. which is ever one and can never be divided (as indicated in the Ritual of the Crown). and is formulated as described in the Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars. equilibrate and inform the elements. The reason for this is that the Trees are united above the Abyss by the Crown. as the aspirant seeks to attain to the Second Order and the Spiritual Sphere of Tiphareth. [Additional Commentary: Consider also that the Pentagram is a symbol of the manifest Powers of the All-Father. The Pentagram Formulae for the Dominis Liminis will assist you in attaining this at the appropriate stage of the work. Before proceeding to the Ritual.) The goal of the Dominis Liminis is to consciously link the embodied Microcosmic Tree of Life (also referred to as the “Little Tree” in the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation) with the Great Tree. as the aspirant seeks to rise through the Veil of Paroketh. you are invoking the Spiritual aspect of the Macrocosmic Tree of Life (also referred to as the “Great Tree” in the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation) on which your Sphere is being placed during the working. Once the Pillars of the Great Tree have formulated within your Sphere. It is not Sephira specific. Initiation into Spirit must precede this Sephirotic aspect. and that the elements are blind forces through which Divinity moves. 137 . The Dominis Liminis focuses the Eye first on Spirit and then on the initial work to attain the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. which is the abode of the Holy Guardian Angel. Take some time to contemplate this and the floor of your Sphere. Your Sphere of Consciousness is being lifted up the Tree of Life by none other than the Hand of your God. consider also that there is Holy Unity above the Abyss (and relativity below the Abyss). consider that the Sephiroth and Paths on the Tree of Life are Divine. The second step is to Spiritualize the elements within your Sphere. In the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation. When you invoke Spirit. which is to consciously link the source of the Childe’s aspiration to the Macrocosm. Now is the time when all the other Pentagram work comes together to organize the Sphere on an elemental and Sephirotic basis so Spirit may descend in the midst to redeem. This is done by a three-step process. You will attain a Macrocosmic view of things.Pentagram Formulae for the Dominis Liminis The Dominis Liminis works with Spirit and the Spirit Pentagrams (among the other Stars and Symbols given in the Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars and the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation). your perspective of the World and the Universe will change dramatically.

This paper speaks to right use of the Invocations. the Childe appeals to the God for aid in the Holy Work. Of course. 155 . The practice of assuming God forms will get easier over time. Following this paper is a series of Invocations of some of the Gods which are regularly invoked in the Magickal Practices of the Sanctuary. this will be the case. see the red fire of your projection emanating out through your Sphere in all directions as a call. It would be appropriate to make the Sign of Projection while reading the words of the first section (though this is unnecessary. The second section relates to Water and the Briatic Plane.THE INVOCATIONS (The Formula of Invocation) Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe Copyright © 2009 Sanctuary of Thoth. you are encouraged to also prepare your own invocations. This is done by projecting the words of the section into the Universe. It would be appropriate to make the Sign of Silence while reading the words of the second section (if you made the Sign of Projection while reading the first section). When speaking the words of this section. It would now be appropriate to assume the form of the God. especially as you work with the God. The Womb of the Goddess will respond. Do this as best you can. Be assured. You would do well to use these Invocations in your own magickal practices to aid your Work. as an offering of love and devotion to the Gods. The third section relates to Air and the Yitziratic Plane. The first section relates to Fire and the Atziluthic Plane. The Essence or Prana of the God is now received and concentrated in the Sphere. The Childe now recognizes the Unity of the God and the Childe within the Sphere of the Childe. as if the image of the God were superimposed over the Childe. The process of receiving is complete. Feel the Essence of the God saturate your Sphere as a blue watery color. See a yellow light. All rights reserved. Each Invocation is generally organized into four main sections. It would also be appropriate to make the Sign of Triumph while reading the words of the third section (if you are magickally signing during the Invocation). especially in every instance of Invocation). 31/31 31 Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Received by ACh LA. and come to know the God through direct experience. Therefore. the Childe should give thanks for the experience (regardless of the perceived outcome at the time). The God now materializes in the body of the Childe. see a green light to foster the process. With the Eye rightly and intensely focused on the Great Work to be performed. devoted and loving heart. If you are making the Magickal Signs as described above.The fourth section relates to Earth and the Assiatic Plane. and praise the Holy Name of the God. equilibrate and inform the elements of the Childe in a way to further the Great Work. In this way. prior to performing an Invocation. After performing an Invocation and completing the working. When it is time for the Childe to regain “normal” consciousness. the Spirit of the God will descend in the midst of the Invocation through the Magickal Planes to redeem. It is of the utmost importance. It would be appropriate to make the Sign of the Blazing Star while reading the words of the fourth section (if the other Magickal Signs described above have been made). Love is the Law. the Childe will be prompted to give a license to depart or it will simply happen. As this is occurring during the words of the Invocation. pay close attention to what you receive and experience afterwards. at the conclusion of the Invocation. It is also critical to the success of the working that the Eye remain focused on the Great Work to be accomplished until concluded. In all cases. you are encouraged to examine your internal and external experiences during the working and what follows thereafter. The God and Childe will Work as one for the appointed time. and especially during the remainder of the Magickal Day on which the Invocation is performed. with a reverent. which transforms into the Pentagrammaton (YHShVH) as Spirit descends in the midst. to clearly and succinctly formulate the purpose of the working in a manner which is consistent with the Great Work. and be healed thereby. as Scribe (Brian Goldstein) On behalf of the Sanctuary of Thoth 156 . the Childe will directly interact with the God. it would be appropriate to stand in the Sign of the Cross for a period of time to affirm the Unity of the Spirit of the God and Childe. Invocations have a transforming effect on a Childe. A great deal is learned and experienced outside of the Physical Temple. Amen. Your Invocation will tend to shape the events which follow.

The Magickal Signs of the Adepti are described in this paper. looking straight forward. by moving the Childe to the center of the Yitziratic Hexagram which is formulated on the floor of the Childe’s Sphere. This is done by placing the elements of the Childe’s Sphere under the Presidency of the Name (YHVH) by formulating the Zodiacal Belt about the Sphere and the four Pillars of the Temple (representing the Father. the Mother. with the ultimate focus on crossing the Abyss to attain unto the Third Order.THE MAGICKAL SIGNS OF THE ADEPTI (Including those of the Virgin Daughter) Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe Copyright © 2009 Sanctuary of Thoth.

the Daughter) within the Sphere. The Middle Pillar is established in the Void in the Center of the Sphere, which is the place of Spirit. This being done, the Childe must then consciously connect the movements of these elements (the 5) to the dominion of the Holy Guardian Angel in Tiphareth (the 6). Thus will the Name reformulate as YHShVH and thus will the Childe realize the equation of 5 = 6, which will release the Childe from the Cross of Suffering and allow the Childe to embody or assume the Cross of Gold. Amen.  L – Feet remain in position, raise the right hand so the right arm is extended straight up with the palm open and facing to the left and moved to slightly over the head, the left arm is down and bent at the elbow so the bottom part of the arm is horizontally extended to the left of the body. While doing this, look left and say “The Sign of the Dance of Asi”. V – Feet remain in position, raise both hands over the head so the arms are extended in the shape of a “V” with palms tilted slightly outwards, direct your consciousness behind you while looking forward and say - “The Sign of the Joy of Iacchus.” This is also called the Sign of Triumph commonly used in other rituals of the Sanctuary. X – Feet remain in position, cross both forearms over the chest, left over right (to show the arm corresponding with the Pillar of Mercy on the embodied Little Tree as “active” so to speak and the arm corresponding with the Pillar of Severity on the embodied Little Tree as “passive” so to speak), make fists with the hands, and say “The Sign of the Blazing Star”. Direct your consciousness forward, make the Sign of the Cross again and the Sign of the Blazing Star again while saying “LVX, Lux, the Light of the True Cross”. This completes the making of the LVX Signs. May the Yitziratic Hexagram formed on the Little Tree which you embody shine like the Sun and the Cross of the Elements turn to Gold! Amen. Commentary: Note that, if you are standing in the Center of the Sphere while you make the LVX Signs: o While making the Sign of the Cross, you will be looking east in the place of Aries which is the cardinal sign of Fire on the Zodiacal belt. o While making the Sign of the Dance of Asi, you will be looking to the north in the place of Cancer which is the cardinal sign of Water on the Zodiacal belt. o While make the Sign of the Joy of Iacchus (the Sign of Triumph), your consciousness will be directed to the west in the place of Libra which is the cardinal sign of Air on the Zodiacal belt. o While making the Sign of the Blazing Star, your consciousness will be directed to the south in the place of Capricorn which is the cardinal sign of earth on the Zodiacal belt.

o While making the final Sign of the Cross and Sign of the Blazing Star, your consciousness is again being directed to the east, completing the Circle of the Zodiacal Belt as you complete this aspect of your invocation. Go forth now Childe of Tiphareth in the Light and Love of your Holy Guardian Angel. Amen. The Magickal Sign of the Childe of Geburah The Magickal Sign of the Childe of Geburah is Puer – the Boy. The Childe of Geburah has realized the equation of 5 = 6 described above. Adepthood has been attained. The Childe is like a young Majestic King or Queen who now Works in the Knowledge and Conversation of His Holy Guardian Angel. The Work of the Childe of Geburah involves a ripening of Adepthood into a phase of adulthood, as the Childe evolves into a Mighty Warrior of God who does only True Will (from the perspective of Geburah) and nothing else. The Childe is evolving as a Pure Vessel for the Angel. The Childe has consciously connected the movement of the elements of the Childe to the dominion of the Holy Guardian Angel. However, this has not been fully assimilated as of yet in the consciousness of the Childe. The Childe now is to realize the equation of 6 = 5, which shows that the Holy Guardian Angel has complete dominion over the Childe’s thoughts, words and deeds. The Angel moves the Childe. In the process of Initiation into these Mysteries, an occult “death” of sorts occurs, as the Childe realizes human being to be nothing but an extension of the Angel’s Being and the Childe is rid of any qliphotic parts. The Childe’s Eye has been rightly focused. Preliminary Second Order initiations have been attained. The Childe of Geburah now moves from the Lower Astral Plane (represented by the Yitziratic Hexagram which had formulated on the floor of the Childe’s Sphere) to the Upper Astral Plane or Solar Plane (represented by the Heavenly Hexagram which will formulate on the floor of the Childe’s Sphere). The Solar Plane has its own magickal formulae which have been aptly described in other papers issued by the Sanctuary. It is said that Magickal Power is granted to the Childe of Geburah, as the Angel now performs the Holy Magick through the Childe. As the Angel acts through the Childe, the Magick is performed by a simple concentration and direction of the Powers of the Mind. These Mysteries are revealed through the symbolism of the Wand of the Childe of Geburah, which is the Phoenix Wand. They are also revealed by the Sign of Puer, which invokes the Spiritual Energies of Geburah and may be used to direct the Mars Force as appropriate in the Great Work. The Sign may be made mentally or physically with equal success, as follows:  Stand, looking straight forward in the direction appropriate to the invocation or projection, the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot, the right hand is raised with the arm bent at the elbow so the palm is open and facing outwards before the right shoulder with fingers spread apart, the left hand is placed before and against the genitals with the thumb extended straight out horizontal to the body with the remaining fingers curled to the palm. Nothing is said while making this Sign.

188

Commentary: The right hand shows a projection of the Pentagram, which is formed by the presentation of the hand. The Pentagram is a symbol of Geburah and the manifest Powers of the All-Father of Chokmah. The left hand shows a projection of the regenerative power which is the Mars Force from perspective of the Childe’s present Work on the Tree of Life. The Magickal Signs of the Childe of Chesed The Magickal Sign of the Childe of Chesed is Vir – the Man or King. The Childe has evolved from a young Majestic King or Queen as a Childe of Tiphareth, to a Mighty Warrior of God doing only True Will as a Childe of Geburah and now must evolve into a Mighty King or Queen as a Childe of Chesed. This is done by and through attaining the Power to Love and what is known as the Balances. From the perspective of the Childe of Chesed, the Power to Love, which is to Love All in every thought, word and deed, is conferred by Babalon the Beautiful, who is a lower aspect of Nuit. Pray to Babalon for the Power to Love All, and to Silence the Waters to all but Her Desire which is His Will. Love balances Will, so the Fire of Will does not burn. Said another way, Love tempers Will. This is shown most directly by the Feminine Nature of the Paths leading from Chokmah. Chesed emanates the purest expressions of these Spiritual Energies below the Abyss in the form of the Serpent Power (which precedes the Mars Force). The Sign of Vir shows the nature of this expression. It may be made mentally or physically with equal success, as follows;  Stand, looking straight forward in the direction appropriate to the invocation or projection, the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot, both hands are raised to the sides of the head slightly above and before the ears, the thumbs are pointed out and forward bent at the knuckle, and the other four fingers of each hand are curled to the palms. Nothing is said while making this Sign. Commentary: The Sign of Vir may be made to invoke the Spiritual Energies of Chesed and project the Serpent-Power in the Great Work. The Sign itself further shows the Balances, which the Childe of Chesed must attain as noted above. The Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter The Power to Love washes the Childe and makes the Childe pure and chaste. As the Childe of Chesed receives Initiation in the “inner”, the Childe will express the purest Will currents balanced by Love below the Abyss. The Childe sees All as God and, thus, Loves All as God. The Childe still embodies the Little Tree, which distinguishes the Childe as a member of the Second Order. When the Little Tree is refined and honed to Perfection, the Childe will attain to the Holy State of the Virgin Daughter, who is to be redeemed according to the Formula of the Tetragrammaton and set upon the Throne of the Great Mother in Binah. This may be accomplished only when the Childe is of Pure Aspiration. The progression of the Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter is further shown by the Planetary attributions of the Heavenly Hexagram.

189

On the Heavenly Hexagram, Venus is attributed to the Sphere of Chesed and Jupiter moves to its rightful position in the place of the Sphere of Kether. Thus, as the Childe attains to Chesed in the “inner” on the Heavenly Hexagram, the Sign of Puella – the Girl or Virgin Daughter - follows the Sign of Vir. This is the first of the Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter, who aspires unto Binah. As further described in other papers of the Sanctuary, in order to attain to Binah, the Little Tree of the Virgin Daughter must be “broken”, which means the Holy Guardian Angel of the Childe (attributed to the Little Tree as the Son) must be sacrificed by no other than by the Hand of God. This is done by a Ritual performed by the Holy One related to the Mysteries of Atu VI entitled “The Lovers”. The Childe will then temporarily embody the Great Tree, as the Childe stands before the Holy One and the Supernal Mother in Binah and the Supernal Father in Chokmah. Even this Great Tree is then left behind as the Childe’s vessel is emptied and filled with the Essence of the All-Mother. The Childe will then enter the Supernal Triangle as the Great Mother and Work as a Childe of Binah. The second of the Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter, who is in the process of making this Journey, is called the Sign of Babalon, who is attributed to Binah. On the Heavenly Hexagram, the Moon is attributed to Binah. Thus, this Sign shows through symbolism the process of making the Journey first by embodying the Great Tree and then by receiving the Essence of the All-Mother and Becoming wholly the Great Mother. The Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter may be made mentally or physically with equal success, as follows:  The Sign of Puella – Stand, the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot, the right hand covers the left breast with palm open on the body, the left hand covers the genitals with palm open on the body, and the head is tilted down and slightly to the left with an attitude of innocence. The Sign of Babalon – Stand, feet spread wide apart, heels under the shoulders with feet at 45º degree angles, the arms lifted above the head and bent at the elbows with hands arched inward and the palms out, the head is tiled down. This is also known as the Sign of Mulier. When making this Sign, visualize the Little Tree being “broken” and pushed away, and replaced by the Great Tree. The Childe is silent when making these Signs.

May the Virgin Daughter arise from the progression in the Sign of Maters Triumphant. This concludes the Magickal Signs which represent a crossing of the Abyss. To attain unto Binah, a Virgin Daughter must overcome the Abyss. The symbolism of the “Abyss” shows there is a separation between God and man. This is the Grand Illusion. There is no separation between God and man except in the consciousness of man. The Daughter is the Mother. God is man. Once rid of any qliphotic parts, and made pure and chaste, the Holy One will Reverse the Great Curse and cause the Virgin Daughter to undergo these holy transformations to arise newborn to Understanding as a Childe of Binah ever to the Glory of God. Amen.

Compassion and Understanding of God. Atu XVII – The Star. The Father is manifesting through the Mother as the Son. The Male and the Female produce another Male. so also does the Path of Daleth lie between these Pillars. Unity is uttermost showed. The Son is in Holy Communion. connects Chokmah and Tiphareth. The operation of the Path of Daleth was wholly in the Supernal Realm. They have Life as the Chia (the Life Force) runs through their bodies. However. 194 . all things return. She receives. He brings the Word down to Earth. The Path of Heh. and nourish the Children with Liberty and Life. These are the Four Glories of Thelema which emanate from the Crown. Nature is shown through the Circle and the Cross. She is Love. They have the Spirit and Soul of Nature. as is all within Her Womb.is pregnant. She has born a Childe. which connects Chokmah and Binah. She is shown caring for them. which make the Symbol of Venus. They are the Children of the Supernal Mother and the Supernal Father. It descends into the Yitziratic Plane. The Woman is the Love. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Daleth. who is the Man. This is due to the Grand Illusion of the Abyss. They are of Her. Light and Love balance. The Law is being established in Chesed by the Word. The Universe is of Her. who is the Hierophant in this aspect. and manifest them. The Son of Tiphareth is the perfect manifestation of the Childe. From Her Womb. He speaks the Word. The Word is being actively communicated. She is Nature and the Mother. Daleth is the Door. She is an aspect of Babalon the Beautiful. This shows the Supernal Father communing with the Son of Tiphareth by way of the Mother. The Woman is no longer pregnant. The One is as adorable as the many. The Garden is fertile and in bloom. Unto Thee Nuit! Amen. and has the combined Powers of His Parents to do so. He is Vau Tetragrammaton. and the Daughter. which is the Gate of Heaven. as the many is adorable as the One. She is Mother Nature. The Son is shown flush with the Fire of His Father. Love under Will. The Elements are the manifest powers of the All-Father. We adore Thee in all Thy many aspects. Pure and Simple. as the “Scarlet Son”. The Man and the Woman are in Union. Just as the High Priestess sits between the Pillars of Mercy and Severity. The manifestation of Nuit. which connects Chokmah to Chesed. This all occurs by an Act of Love in the Supernal Realm. Amen. tempers and transmits the Fire of His Will. Tiphareth is the abode of the Holy Guardian Angel. and controls the manifestation of all below Tiphareth. The Man expresses the Will and Wisdom of God. The Creative Will and the Creative Imagination unite out of Love to create their Magickal Children and all things in Nature. Love tempers Will. who nourishes as described. The Son is the Redeemer. which is the Goddess. The Woman here is the Venus of Taurus (which is the second Zodiacal Sign of the Fire Tide). The Children have Liberty in the genesis of ideas. there is not. There appears to be a separation from the Supernal Parents. She is an aspect of Nuit. all things are born. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Vau. Her nature is Love.

The parts of the Soul are now to be distinguished. By its position. We have the Chia of Chokmah. who is the Microprosopus. By speaking the Word. When we think of action on the Male Side of the Tree. carryout and manifest the Word of God. and embodies all that preceded. From this. The Ruach and the Nephesch are distinguished from what has preceded in the formulation of the Microcosm. Amen. are reflected into the Microcosm. The Journey now moves into the Yitziratic Realm. Atu VII is attributed to the Path of Cheth. which begins on the Female Side of the Tree and leads from Binah to Tiphareth. whether following Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation down the Tree or contemplating the Atu from the particular perspective attained by an aspirant on the Way of Return up the Tree. which is the Soul of All. This is the sole task of the Childe – to bear the Holy Grail – to receive. Amen. The Journey now continues wholly below the Supernal Realm. adorations unto Thee! Go forth to the Glory of the Holy Names of God. Babalon the Beautiful nourishes Her Lion-Childe with the Serpent Power. it shows the Influence of the Supernals on all motion in the Universe. words and deeds. Atu VII – The Chariot. We have the Neschamah of Binah. Although the Magician of Atu I (who is also the Mercury of Gemini attributed to Atu VI) continues to perpetuate the Grand Illusion of the Abyss. and embodies God’s Hands to work on the lower planes. Here. It is the “Fire 195 . Atu XI – Lust (Strength). This motion. which transmits the Word to the Ruach. which commenced in the Supernal Realm. The process of creation continues. we stay focused on Spirit’s Journey down the Tree. Each Microcosm is unique but an indivisible part of the Macrocosm. Rather. which is the last Path on the Journey originating in the Supernal Realm. The Son has been created. which is the Feminine Soul of Nature. Mental offspring are produced and sent forth. including that of the Chariot. The Charioteer is God manifesting to carry the Word into the lower planes. we see a proof of the phrase “Love is the Law. which lies between Chesed and Geburah. The Charioteer wears the Crown of God. We have the Yechidah of the Crown. the Childe brings the Word into manifestation. Amen. Here. but there is not. Atu VI – The Lovers. Its counterpart on the Male Side of the Tree is the Path of Heh attributed to Atu XVII – The Star. this Atu is subject to such varied interpretations depending on the perspective from which it is viewed. The Microcosm is complete. The Pillars of Mercy and Severity. These form a basis for all of the Childe’s thoughts. Perhaps. some of which are received in the form of silent speech. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Teth. The Yechidah moves. O’ Beautiful Childe. which is the Spirit of All and the Male Creative Life Force. He manifests Them. This Atu is of great importance. Although there is no given Path on the Tree of Life from Binah to Chesed. This is the Charioteer.who is of His Father and Mother. The Microprosopus is a manifestation of God. The Chia is received by the Neschamah. which further defines the nature of the Law of Thelema The current received by Chesed is sent forth to Geburah. we see such action on the Path of Zain. more than others. There appears to be a separation (which is the Grand Illusion of the Abyss). Love under Will”. this is to be cast out. The Fire of the Holy One is expressed. symbolized by the four Pillars of the Chariot. is shown to be under the presidency of the Name (YHVH). there is in the same flash counterbalancing action on the Female Side of the Tree. His transparency allows the Light and Love of His Parents to shine through unobstructed. which bring the Word into manifestation. Pure and Perfect. which was previously encountered on Spirit’s Journey. the current of the Flaming Sword is not broken in its course. It precedes the Mars Force of Geburah and is informing of the Law established in Chesed. The Childe’s actions manifest God’s Will. There is no separation between God and man. it flows continuously for Chesed is a manifestation of that which preceded in the Womb of the AllMother.

it is of higher nature than that expressed by Tiphareth. and the redemption of the human race. Liberty and Life of the Crown.Informing”. which forms a basis of all motion. The Word carries with it the Serpent Power. and so he is moved harmoniously in accord with the Law. and Chesed is the source of the Serpent Power of Atu XI which precedes the Mars Force. Be thou the Hermit! Amen. You know. Amen. The Serpent Power is used by Spirit to move all within the Universe below to manifest the Word. These correspondences speak to the creation and movement of earthly man in Spirit’s Journey. As we have seen. The Fire of Yod Tetragrammaton descends from the Elohim. creates earthly man in His Image. This may appear to manifest as luck. Earthly man is an extension of this. However. the Pentagram is set aright. the Crown is worn and the Word may be spoken. This is another demonstration that Love is the Law. The Hermit is one who has been made aware of his starry heritage. He dispenses with terrestrial matters in accord with God’s Will. To the Initiate (symbolized by the Sworded Sphinx). 196 . This correspondence follows through to the Yitziratic Hexagram. and is a source of Light and Love to others. the Law below the Supernal Realm is established in Chesed (in part by the Word of the Hierophant). However. It is also to be observed that Jupiter is attributed to Chesed. who is the Heavenly Man. Further. which emanates the purest energy below the “Abyss”. And so does the Hermit assist in healing the Womb of the Goddess and reversing the Curse of the Fall of Man. The number 11 signifies magickal power. all motion within the Universe is perfectly in accord with the Law. However. His Sword flames with the Fire of his God. Amen. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Yod and the Zodiacal Sign of Virgo. there is no luck or accidental circumstance. It is said that the Wheel turns both ways. A Holy State of Union always exists. It is also Solar in nature. Motion will then be set in accord with the Law. as we have already seen in the Journey. selection and digestion are all suggested. The Serpent Power is the purest energy expressed below the Supernal Realm. We are reminded by the number of the Atu that Spirit is the basis of all manifestation. Atu X – Fortune (Wheel of Fortune). We are so moved. The Wheel of Fortune exists in the Womb of the Goddess. as shown by this Atu’s attribution to the Zodiacal Sign of Leo. created from God and remaining a part of God. who transmit their Influence to illumine the SixFold Star and move earthly man. The Forces of the Universe are asserted as necessary in the administration of matters throughout the Planes. This Atu is the eleventh of the Atu. Yod is the first letter of the Tetragrammaton. while the Hebrew letter Kaph is a symbol of the Palm or closed Hand of God and the use of power. whereon Venus assumes Jupiter’s former attribution to Chesed. It is said that the Hebrew letter Yod (mentioned in relation to Atu IX) is a symbol of the open Hand of God and potential power. Love. This Atu is a glyph of the assertion of magickal power below the Supernal Realm in the administration of the Law. He is a Chosen Initiate. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Kaph and the Planet Jupiter. And so does the Hermit assist in the Great Work of a new creation. Right nourishment. whose Malkuth contains all worlds below and is the connecting link to the Malkuth of the 30 th Aire). This occurs when the Eye of the Childe is focused on the Love of the Goddess which sets the Pentagram aright within the Childe. It nourishes the Lion-Childe with the Light. It is also the first letter of the words Yechidah (the Soul of All attributed to Kether) and Ygdrasil (the Name of the Ancient Tree in Kether. Adam Qadmon. Jupiter is attributed to Kether on the Heavenly Hexagram. This existence of the Nephesch is acknowledged in these statements. Atu IX – The Hermit. which wields the current of the Flaming Sword. and is turned by the Hand of God. He has been shown how to rightly focus the Eye and set the Pentagram aright. the Macroprosopus produces from Itself the Microprosopus which is a unique yet indivisible part of Itself. When the Eye is rightly focused.

which connects Geburah to Tiphareth. “Deus et homo”. now appearing as the Mars Force. Every breath is a gift. The initiate keeps silence to hear the Word of God. Amen. This action is wholly below the “Abyss”. This energy is transmitted to Tiphareth. Atu XIII – Death. When the Eye is closed to the True Perspective. and all else that derive from these. When we are given proper perspective. This continues through the Work of the Holy Guardian Angel. however. whose Love tempers the Fire of the All-Father. The Serpent-Power (which is the “Fire Informing”) has been expressed and is received by Geburah. Venus is Love. Consider the qualities of Water. this Atu represents the initiation of man. although it may not seem so at times. You are a watery vessel for Spirit. and results in the ultimate fulfillment of the Word in Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation. Every Childe of Earth embodies the Tree of Life. totally and with confidence. The Universe is in a state of perfect equilibrium. You are truly a Star. God is man. Upon High. It is silent and transparent. It also promotes Liberation and Initiation. Spirit descends through the Living Water.] This Atu is attributed to the Path of Nun and the Zodiacal Sign of 197 . The energy expressed here is of such a nature as to cause this to occur. The true perspective generally represents a complete reversal of general human views. The forces of Life and Death undulate and appear in varying aspects in Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation. which are educative and engines for truth and beauty. The Childe’s Eye is then opened to the true perspective and the Childe’s starry heritage. Harmony and Love. She is Nuit in Her aspects as the Empress and the All-Mother. not human beings clamoring for a spiritual life. which is the Sword of Chesed. whose Influence illumines the Six-Fold Star and moves man. Spirit illumines the Childe’s mind with the LVX. Every Childe of Earth wears the Crown and embodies the Six-Rayed Star. Here. Our thoughts are seeds for our words and deeds. which moves all things below. the energy expressed promotes Justice. pain. God moves us. Every waking moment is partaking of the Sacrament. We have seen the Influence from above.Atu VIII – Adjustment (Justice). which is ever guiding. Spirit produces the human vessels to manifest the Word and serve as God’s Hands on the terrestrial (earthly) plane. She is also the High Priestess of the Path of Gimel. This is the Path which leads to true Wisdom. This Atu describes the qualities and function of this energy. We are immortal spiritual beings living a human life. Spirit manifests through our personalities. Atu XII – The Hanged Man. She appears in a lower aspect as the Venus of Libra. This explains why the Hanged Man is suspended upside down. As it is written on the back of every Rosy Cross. Our lives are dependent on God. Balance. and is moved rightly along the Path which leads to True Wisdom. Innate to the Serpent-Power is the quality of a Woman. which is telling of the workings of Spirit in the context of man. perfect peace and happiness. This energy then appears as Solar energy. Action is now taken to manifest the Word according to the Law. The image is of a Yod as a Fiery Ruby Red Jewel descending upon the center of a Crown (formulated as described in the Ritual of the Crown). [Additional Commentary: These last two sentences are True in all respects until the Childe has attained unto Binah. Amen. which also is perfectly balanced on the Tree of Life. The Atu is attributed to Water. that within the Light of the Sun shines the Invisible Light of Kether. peace and happiness. completely. the Light of the One True Life. The Forces of Nature balance each other – Light and Love. we surrender to it – to Divine Providence. including man. Life and Death. In so doing. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Lamed. suffering and dis-ease result. and inspires us. These cause the changes which produce earthly manifestation. The Venus of Libra enforces or administers the Law. We do not move God. who sits in perfect equilibrium. The Law established in Chesed has been communicated. reflecting the Light of the Crown. Following the Journey down the Tree. which is the Royal Path of Initiation and the Way of Return. Progress may then continue along Path of Liberation. There is cause and effect. We are reminded.

Scorpio. The Path of Nun shows the Angel’s direct influence on the will of man. The Zodiacal Sign of Scorpio is ruled by Mars. This shows the Mars current in a lower aspect moving the will of man. Netzach is attributed to Venus in a lower aspect than spoken of above. Further, Scorpio is the fixed sign of Water. We thus see again a tempering of the Will currents by Love. The Curse of the Fall of Man has caused the Children of Earth to forget their starry heritage. They are over-whelmed by desire and physical sense experience. Physical death assists in perpetuating the Grand Illusion that there is a separation of God and man. There is no such separation. God is with you. You are of God. Set the Pentagram aright, and remember. Let the Eye open and be transformed, as the “old man” dies. Amen. Atu XIV – The Art (Temperance). Here we see the Holy Guardian Angel performing His Holy Works, practicing the Art. The Angel mingles and applies the three forms of energy (Alchemical Mercury, Sulphur and Salt) to create or destroy substance as appropriate. The Powers of the All-Father run through the Angel to manifest the Elements of Fire, Water, Air and Earth, which are blind forces Divinely guided. Below Tiphareth, the elements have correspondence to the human senses of sight, taste, smell and touch. All humans are moved in this way. This Atu corresponds to the Path of Samekh, which is perfectly equilibrated on the Tree of Life and connects Tiphareth to Yesod. The Path is attributed to the Zodiacal Sign of Sagittarius, which is ruled by Jupiter. Various correspondences to Jupiter have been noted above. Most simply, we are shown by this attribution the Crown working through the Angel administering the Law. The magickal currents are vibrations. They move as directed in accord with the Law. They have correspondence with different colors and sounds. They combine to create all life and forms that we see. They are at the root of all human consciousness and automatic movement within the human body. The Holy Guardian Angel, who is the Son, is the source of all of our thoughts, words and deeds. [Additional Commentary: The preceding sentence is also True until the Childe has attained unto Binah.] The Angel is always with the Microprosopus, as is God who acts through the Angel. It seems like we act on our own volition. However, we do not. We are always performing Spirit’s work. The Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel comes from realizing your True Self. YHShVH, Yeheshuah. Amen. Atu XV – The Devil. Dispel with all concepts of the Devil. The Devil is the Holy Guardian Angel appearing in a different form to us. The Devil is viewed as our adversary. He represents the forces of nature which seemingly oppose us. However, there is nothing opposing you. Your only opposition is ignorance. The Devil is a symbol of ignorance, and the darkness caused by ignorance. As a result of the Great Curse resulting in the Fall of Man, the Children of Earth have to deal with human desire and the limitations imposed by their physical senses. These create a “ veil” or “mask” of the true workings of Spirit. However, these also can be a source of inspiration to us to apply ourselves to the Great Work. We are shown in this Atu how to set things right. The averse Pentagram is commonly associated with this Atu. This shows the physical senses over the Spirit point of the Pentagram, which is pointing down. This is an indicator that things are not right. The Pentagram must be set aright, with the Spirit point up, showing Spirit presiding over the Elements, which is truly the case as shown above. We are given only one true choice in our human lives, which is to use our lower will to focus our Eye to God. When the Pentagram is averse, the Devil and the demons teach. When the Pentagram is aright, the Holy Guardian Angel sets the course. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Ayin, which connects Tiphareth to Hod. The word “Ayin” means Eye. This Atu sends a message. By using the lower will to rightly focus the Eye and set the Pentagram aright, we may unloose the bonds of ignorance, attain right knowledge and reverse the Great Curse on the Path of Liberation. Amen.

198

Atu XVI – The Tower. Here we see the Mars force in action again, but this time completely below Tiphareth. It is being applied through the lower will to inspire thought. The Mars force promotes Justice and liberation as we have seen. This is always the case, regardless of whether the Holy Guardian Angel of Atu XIV or the Devil of Atu XV teaches. The Mars force encourages the Eye of a Childe to open the true nature of things by “blasting” notions of personal separateness, which is an illusion. This inspires the Childe to rightly focus the Eye to God. It also assists the Childe in setting the Pentagram aright. As noted above, the Childe is given only one real choice, which is to assert the lower will to rightly focus the Eye. You are constantly being guided to do this. As you do this, the “crown” of the false self will be unloosed by the power of the Son, and will fall. The Childe will then begin to attain right knowledge which will change the Childe’s outlook from a materialistic to a Universal perspective. As the tower of the false self is blasted, the Eye is opened to the House of God. Some versions of this Atu depict a man and woman falling from a tower. This is because the Universe as they knew it has been destroyed. They are being placed on the Path of Liberation, which is attained through right knowledge. Darkness prevails until ignorance is dispelled. The bonds of the Great Curse may be lifted if you simply heed the guidance you are receiving, which has its origin in Spirit. We are centers of expression for Spirit. By listening to our Self, and acting accordingly by right use of the lower will, the Eye will open to the House of God and Liberation will come. Amen. Atu IV – The Emperor. Hail unto the Emperor, who rules All. All male figures in the Tarot may be equated to the Man, and all female figures may be equated to the Woman, in their varying aspects. The Male creative energy sets the Law, which is expressed through the Woman. This governs and regulates all aspects of Creation, all circumstances of our lives and all manifestation. Appreciate every day you are given. It is an opportunity to make a difference. Focus the Eye on the Shekinah, which is the Love of the Supernals, and be moved ever so rightly in harmony with the Law. Love is the Law. Love under Will. [Additional Commentary: So it is below the Holy One, but above there is Nuit’s Chalice whose Love is the Source of Will. Love is Truly the Law.] The Emperor represents the Will of God, and one of the three forms of energy known as Alchemical Sulphur, which appears as the Serpent-Power and the Mars Force. This Atu is attributed to the Zodiacal Sign of Aries, which is ruled by Mars. It is also attributed to the Path of Tzaddi which connects Netzach to Yesod. We are thus shown the Mars force moving deeper into the lower planes, causing change in accord with the Law. The Sun is exalted in Aries. We are thus shown the nobility of the Crown tingeing the energy in such a way to always promote the Justice, balance, harmony, Love and liberation spoken of above. All words and numbers are of God. All things are an expression of God. Every aspect of Creation is in service of Spirit in the Great Work. There are no exceptions. Take note of this. Humbly adore God’s creation. Use the opportunity you are being given to serve rightly. Look to your God to move you in your Holy Work. In the process, sing and praise the Holy Names, and glorify God in all that you do. Amen. Atu XVIII – The Moon. The Moon reflects the Light of the Sun. Upon high, we see the Moon of Atu II reflecting the Light of the Invisible Sun of Kether. In this Atu, we see the Moon in a lower aspect reflecting the Light into the lower planes. This Atu is attributed to the Zodiacal Sign of Pisces and the Path of Qoph. Pisces is the mutable sign of Water. This shows communication. It is the last sign of the Zodiac and a Gateway to Divine Life. The Path of Qoph connects Netzach to Malkuth. It is the first Path seen in the Journey directly connecting to Malkuth, which is the abode of Malkah - the Daughter. The word Qoph refers to the back to the head, suggesting the potencies of the cerebellum. It is through the operation of the brain that Spirit communes with the Daughter. Upon being born upon this earth, we are given a body, which is animal in nature. We are also given an animal soul called the

199

Nephesch in Qabalistic terminology. The animal in all of us must be trained to reverse the Curse of the Fall of Man. This is done by taming desire and training the physical senses. This is taught by the Royal Art & Science of Magick, and the Yoga Sciences. It begins by using the lower will to rightly focus the Eye on the Love of the Supernals. Right knowledge then comes to set the Pentagram aright. Even the lower Moon illumines the Path of Liberation, which is shown on the Atu. There is darkness if the Eye is not rightly focused. Anubis, which is lower aspect of Thoth, guides through this darkness. Dispel ignorance. Focus the Eye on Love. You are being shown the Way. In so doing, you assist the Light of the Son to rise in the hearts of man. Amen. Atu XIX – The Sun. Hail Heru-Ra-Ha, our Lord the Sun! Hail unto the Lord of Light, Love, Liberty and Life! Blessed be Thy Holy Names unto the Age of Ages. Here we see the Son and the Daughter playing together under the Light of the Sun. Their Life is His Life. When a Childe issues forth from the Supernals as the Microprosopus, the Childe is given a starry matrix. The Childe initially embodies a Tree of Life similar to the Supernal Parents but on a Microcosmic basis. This has been referred to in other writings issued by the Sanctuary as the “Little Tree”. The Childe also wears a Natal Crown as described in the Ritual of the Crown. The Crown is ever One, and cannot be divided. The White and Black Pillars of the Little Tree represent the Son and the Daughter. They are ever in perfect Union within the Childe, and move under the authority of their Supernal Parents, as shown by the Crown upon the Childe’s head and the Middle Pillar of the Little Tree. The countenance of the Childe, which manifests as the Childe’s personality, is an expression of Spirit, as is all life and all manifestation here on earth. These gifts are given as tools for Spirit to guide its Children to perform the Holy Work, to reverse the Curse of the Fall of Man, to “break” the Little Tree, which results in a temporary embodiment of the Great Tree and then even this is “broken” as the Childe becomes the Mother and wholly embodies Her Essence. Once this occurs, the Childe becomes Compassion, Love and Understanding, and works as a Compassionate Witness with no desire. And so may the Great Curse be lifted, and you may truly enter Eden in the Womb of the Great Mother. Amen. Atu XX – The Aeon (Judgement). Let the trumpets sound, and the Word of the Lord of the Aeon be heard! Arise Children of Earth in the Knowledge and Conversation of Thee. May the Breath of the Holy One fill you with Life. The Holy Spirit manifests through you, and the Holy Fire moves thee. It is time for change. Hear thou the Word. It is as soft as a whisper and yet louder than a lion’s roar. Be transformed. Be rightly moved in the Holy Work. You have been shown how to do this. The choice is a simple one. Rightly focus the Eye. Allow it to open to Spirit and the workings of Spirit through all that you see. The Holy Spirit and Will of God runs through you. There is no time to waste. Every moment is an opportunity. Use each one wisely and well. Our magick is practiced through the symbols we are given, and how we live our lives. Our work is transforming. As we evolve as sources of Light and Love, those around us are so evolved and transformed. This is how the Great Work is accomplished. This is how a new race of men and woman are created to perform God’s work here on earth. Each one of us makes a difference. The Blessings of the Most High confer greater gifts than any other thing we which may acquire here on Earth. They bestow true peace and Eternal Joy. Every one of us is equipped to perform and accomplish this Work. There are no exceptions. This is why we are here, to perform this Work. It is our Holy Duty to do so. No other responsibility compares. Your life circumstance, no matter what it may be, has been arranged to foster this. Look to your God to be moved rightly along the Royal Path, and be awakened to Life on the higher planes. Amen.

Atu XXI – The Universe. Hail unto the Daughter, who Dances with Heru-Ra-Ha. We see in this Atu the completion of the formula of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH). The Dancer is the Fool, who has completed Its Journey into Manifestation. Just as all male figures in the Tarot may be equated with the Man, and all female figures may be equated to the Woman, all figures in the Tarot may be equated as expressions of Spirit in Its Journey. The first is the last. The Daughter is the Mother, but She is also the Son and Father. She is a Crowned Childe of Earth, a Magickal Childe. She dances showing a celebration of Life throughout all planes. Every moment is an opportunity to express the Light and Love of the Crown. Appreciate every moment. Use each one wisely to express Love under Will according to your magickal formula. In so doing, you will find Wisdom in Understanding, and enter the Holy Cities of God. This Atu is attributed to both Saturn and Earth. It is a culmination of all the other Atu. Forms are defined and made heavy as they manifest here on Earth. These forms must, however, change and return to their original Essence in all due time. We thus see in this Atu the revolution of the formula of the Tetragrammaton, and the ultimate redemption of the Daughter. This will eventually occur. However, you are given a great opportunity in this life-time to evolve as a Childe of God and come to know the Crown through direct experience. As you do so, your Eye will be opened to the nature of your Great Work and how best to perform and accomplish it. Glorify God in all that you do. Use what you have been given, and may your Eye open unto your God, who is your True Self and the Soul of the Universe. Amen. Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation shows that All is of God, including all movement and manifestation in the Universe. There are no exceptions. All serve God. The Way of Return involves the Childe of Earth coming to realize the Divinity that resides within, which causes a transformation of the Childe to be something more than human. May this story of Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation assist you in the Way of Return. Unto Thee Nuit! Ateh Gibor Le’Olam Adonai. Amen!!! Love is the Law, Love under Will.

THE FACE OF SPIRIT
(Given in the context of the Thelemic Pantheon)
Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe
Copyright © 2008 Sanctuary of Thoth. All rights reserved.

Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. We speak of the Holy Trinity, most exalted. This is the Face of Spirit. This is given in the context of the Thelemic Pantheon, as declared in the Book of the Law. Our Lady of the Stars, Nuit, is the circumference of the Great Circle of the Universe. Hadit, who is the Secret Center of All, appears within Her. There is She and He. There are no others besides Them. All are aspects of Them. Nuit and Hadit formulate the first Sephira Kether of the Ancient Holy Tree in Kether named Ygdrasil. Her symbol is the Circle. His symbol is the point. They are in Union. Nuit manifests Hadit, and Hadit manifests Nuit. Their symbols combined form the Sigil of the Sun. This is the Invisible Sun of Kether, which is the Source of All. It is also our Sun. There is Love. There is Light. There is Nuit. There is Hadit. All come from Them. Nuit and Hadit have manifested a Childe. This is the Crowned and Conquering Childe. This is Ra-Hoor-Khuit, in His Active Form. This is Hoor-Pa-Kraat, in His Passive Form. This is Heru-RaHa. This is the God who Sitteth upon the Throne in Kether in this New Aeon. This is the Crown. Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit form the Holy Trinity of the Thelemic Pantheon, most exalted. Nuit and Hadit move Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The Holy Trinity, most exalted, move all below. They manifest the Father, the Mother, the Son and the Daughter. They are the Holy Spirit. They move and form All. The Holy Trinity, most exalted, manifests the Ancient Holy Tree in Kether. This Tree, whose Name is Ygdrasil, is of Them. The Malkuth of Ygdrasil contains all Worlds below. Each of the Sephira below contains a Tree of Life. The Tree of Life in the last Sephira Malkuth manifests the Physical Plane, which in Qabalistic terms is called Assiah. The Malkuth of the Tree of Life in Malkuth (which is the Malkuth of the 30th Aire) is contained in the Malkuth of Ygdrasil. Thus, the First Tree contains the Last Tree, and the Circle of the Universe is completed within the Womb of Nuit. The Holy Trinity manifests the Universe. The Holy Trinity manifests Malkuth. The Holy Trinity manifests Earth, and all within Earth. The Holy Trinity is the Soul of All.

Alchemical Sulphur is slightly below and to the right of the Square of the Five in the South-East. Thus. This Tree has its inception in the North. Water in the West and Earth in the South.

The Blade is the Ancient Symbol of the Triangle with the apex pointed upwards. and Alchemical Salt is slightly below and to the left of the Square of the Four.

All below proceeds from the Holy Square of the One, which is the Crown. Yet the Crown is formulated and moved by the Chalice, which is the True Holy Grail. Even the Cup of Babalon the Beautiful is a lower aspect of the Chalice. The Holy Grail is hereby revealed. Nuit and Hadit formulate the Chalice. The lower apex of the Chalice formulates Kether, and the Crowned Childe sitting on the Throne in Kether. Thus we see the lower apex of the Chalice intersecting with the upper apex of the Blade, and all proceeding from the Chalice. The Chalice is the source of the Crown, and all below. The Crown is One, and cannot be divided. The Chalice Illumines your Natal Crown. As explained in another paper received and issued by the Sanctuary on this Holy Day (see “The Unveiling of Nuit – The Star Goddess”), Nuit formulates and moves even Hadit (the Male aspect of the Universe), as well as Ra-Hoor-Khuit. Thus we behold the Chalice as the Womb of Nuit, from which all Life and Light flow from Her Love. All are aspects of Nuit. There is No-Thing in the Universe which is not of and from Her. Her Soul is the Yechidah, which is in all that was, is and is to come. The 30 Aires (or Aethyrs) show but aspects of Her Soul. Behold Nuit, our Beloved Lady of the Stars, in Her Infinite Holiness and the Secret of the Holy Grail. Behold the Mystery of the First Aire, called LIL. May the Goddess be Known to the Children of Earth. You are encouraged to read “Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation”, “The Face of Spirit”, “The Unveiling of Nuit – The Star Goddess” (all of which are papers issued by the Sanctuary) and this paper in the order here given, and may your Eye be opened to the Love and Beauty of our Lady of Stars.

THE ARROW
(Most Holy, Showing the Way)
Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe
Copyright © 2008 Sanctuary of Thoth. All rights reserved.

31/31 31 Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. We now speak of the Arrow. On the Way of Return, while the Childe is Becoming, the Arrow points up. This shows the right focus of the Eye, which is so important on the Royal Path of Initiation. We are reminded that, when the Eye is rightly focused on Divine Love, the Angels teacheth. However, when the Eye is focused down on animal desires, the demons teacheth. This is a Mystery related to the Paths of Samech and Ayin, corresponding with Atus XIV and XV of the Tarot, or the Book of Thoth. The Angel of Atu XIV is also the Devil of Atu XV, but in another form. You determine who teaches you. This is the sole choice you are given in your holy life. The animal will (attributed to the Sephira Netzach) directs the Eye. Once the animal will has been cleansed and purified, and consecrated to the Great Work, it is placed wholly in Service of Spirit to at all times to serve as a holy king in charge of your animal body. This is the work of the First Order through the Work of the Childe of Netzach. Once the animal within (which includes the body, the automatic consciousness, thought/emotion and the lower will) has been tamed and placed in Service of Spirit, the work is to link these animal attributes to their Source. This is the portal work of the Dominis Liminis. The Work of the Second Order then begins. The Arrow must be perfectly balanced and “shot” into the Heart of Tiphareth to come to know your True Self (which is the Source of your True Will). Once your Eye is opened to your True Self, True Will is revealed. You then must learn to do only True Will (which seems to be “struggle” at first) and wash All with Love, which balances Will and purifies the Childe for the work to come. This is the Work of the Second Order. The Childe must be made pure and perfect for the Work to come. All lower aspects of the Childe must be further purified and consecrated wholly to the Great Work. At this stage of Becoming, the Childe still embodies the Little Tree. This is a distinguishing feature of an Adept versus a Member of the Holy Third Order. Even a Childe of Chesed embodies the Little Tree. To cross the Great Abyss, this Little Tree must be broken by the Hand of God. As indicated in other papers of the Sanctuary, the Great Abyss, which separates man and God, is but an Illusion. It is the Grand Illusion created by the Fall of Man. The serpent of desire must be completely tamed, and Cerberus (the Hell Hound, who before this stage of evolution may be perceived as a foe) must be placed in right Service of the Childe, so All is seen as Divine and Holy, even Desire. There is No-One, No-Thing which is not in Service of God. Behold the Glory of God.

208

As the Childe’s Eye is opened to these Holy Mysteries and the Childe is washed by Love, the Little Tree is “broken” and the Childe temporarily embodies only the Great Tree. The Childe is then beheld as part of the Body of God. This was always the case. However, the Childe is now different, as the Childe no longer embodies the Little Tree. A transformation now occurs as evolution progresses. The Childe’s vessel is emptied and filled with the Prana or Essence of the Great Mother in Binah, which is Babalon the Beautiful in the context of the Thelemic Pantheon. When this occurs, even the Great Tree is dissolved, and the Childe Truly Becomes wholly of the Mother, Pure and Perfect, without any “taint” of that which is below Binah. This admits to the Supernal Planes, and to certain Aires (or Aethyrs). We are now moved to step aside from the present discussion to review the importance of the right use of the Aires. They are used on the Way of Return to annihilate the remaining aspects of the self of the Childe in Being. These remaining aspects are Binah and Chokmah so the Childe may attain unto Kether and enter into Being. The Aires show aspects of the Yechidah, which is the Soul of All. In the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation, the Childe of Geburah is guided to begin working with the 30 Aires. It is suggested that this is best done using the versions in The Enochian Magick of Dr. John Dee by Geoffrey James. These versions are the least corrupted, and the corresponding English translations (which tell are story) are most true to form. There are three Aires attributed to each Sephira. The 30 th, 29th and 28th Aires are attributed to Malkuth, and so on up the Tree. The 9 th, 8th and 7th Aires are attributed to Binah. As the Childe comes to receive True Will from these exalted Planes, the 48 Gates of Understanding are opened, one at a time, to the Cities of Wisdom. The 48 Gates are opened by rightly working with the Angelic Keys. Of the 48 Gates, 18 are opened by right use of the First Angelic Key which precedes the Calls of Keys 2 through 18. These correspond to the Crown, the Solar Tides and the Solar Cycles (as shown by their Elemental attributions). The other 30 Gates are opened by right use of the Second Angelic Key which precedes the Call of the 19 th Key, which is the Call of the 30 Aires. These admit to aspects of the Yechidah. Wisdom is found in Understanding. The Fire of Chokmah runs through the Childe of Binah. This “burns” the Childe of Binah, who evolves as the True Scarlet Woman, until the “dust” of the Childe which entered the City of the Pyramids is burnt to a White ASh. (In Hebrew “ASh” means fire.) As evolution progresses, there is another transference of Prana. The Woman Becomes the Man, attributed to Chokmah. The vessel of the Childe is filled with His Essence, replacing Hers. The Childe then Becomes a Holy King. The “dust” of the Childe is placed in an Urn in the Tomb of the All-Father. This is accomplished, in part, by the Work of the 6 th, 5th and 4th Aires. In the course of this Work, the Arrow is beheld in the 5 th Aire as pointing down, but this is not fully realized as of yet by the Childe of Chokmah. The Urn is now beheld as an evolution of the Cup of Babalon and a lower aspect of the Chalice, spoken of in other papers of the Sanctuary. The Light and Love of the Chalice cleanse and purify the last remaining aspects of the self of the Childe, until these aspects are completely annihilated and set aside in the Tomb. In experiencing this Mystery, there is True Death of the self. As Becoming ceases in Being, the Star of the Childe, which has been the source of all prior incarnations, is consumed by the Fire of Hadit, in the Invisible Sun of Kether. The Childe comes to Know His Star as none other than Kether. The Sigil of Aemeth, which is the Seal of the God of Truth,

209

burns brightly in the Core of the Childe. The Being of the Childe is beheld to be that of God, and the last Oath of the Childe of Kether is rightly taken. There is more. Although the Childe has entered into Being, Initiation has not come to an end. There is one more Step to take, which is to realize even the Source of Kether, and how IT is formulated and moved. This is discussed in another paper issued by the Sanctuary entitled “The Blade & The Chalice”. The Chalice is the True Source of All. The Light and Love of the Chalice formulate all positive or Male aspects of the Universe to show the Female aspects. She is the Circle, and He is the ubiquitous center of All. In the context of the Thelemic Pantheon, She is Nuit, He is Hadit, and their Union produces Ra-Hoor-Khuit, the Crowned and Conquering Childe and Lord of this New Aeon, who is enthroned in Kether. Even the Chalice is formulated by Nuit. All Light, all Love, all Life flow from Her and formulate in Her Womb. Nuit is Not, or “LA” in Hebrew. Thus, Initiation comes to an end in Not-Being. There is No-God, No-One, No-Thing which is not an Aspect of Nuit. True Initiation is attained in Not-Being. There is No Oath for this final Step, as there is no positive manifestation of the Step ever being taken. A Childe of Nuit manifests Her, and No-One else. We are all Her Children. We are the Children of Nuit. The First is the Last, as shown by the numeric equations associated with the Work of the Childe of Earth (0=0) and the Work of the Childe of Nuit (also 0=0). After Becoming, we enter into Being, and after Being we enter into Not-Being. The Arrow truly points down when beheld from Above, as the Chalice is always open and the Light and Love of the Chalice flow through nurturing us with Life. This shows through symbolism how She gives Herself to Children. We are Her Holy Living Creatures. The Arrow must point up, perfectly, before it may Truly be beheld as pointing down. By rightly focusing the Eye, performing your Great Work, and giving your self to Her, the Great Initiation may be attained, and Initiation may come to an end. As Nuit gives Her-Self to Her Children, so does a Childe of Nuit who attains unto Her continually manifest Her in performing Her Work, which is to redeem Her Children and Heal Her Womb, ever Glorying Her Holy Name. Praise, Glory and Worship, Love and Devotion unto Thee Nuit. Amen. Love is the Law, Love under Will.

In some respects, it completes the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation, when taken in context of the other papers issued to date (referring here to the date this paper was received and completed). Further, it should be noted that, although Initiation comes to an end for a Childe of Nuit who has entered into Not-Being, the Eye is continually opened unto Her Glory in Infinite Ways, as She is Infinity and Her Wisdom is Boundless. ACh LA. Amen. (2) This paper is also supplemented by the paper entitled “The Sword & The Caduceus (The Evolution of the Childe)”.

The Sword is akin to the Arrow. As has been explained in the paper issued by the Sanctuary entitled “The Arrow (Most Holy. The Flaming Sword is a Symbol of Adepthood.

There is no separation between man and God. except in the consciousness of man. All below Binah manifests from the Supernals. the current of the Flaming Sword flows naturally from Binah to Chesed and down the rest of the Tree of Life.” This is the Prayer of the Childe to enflame the Sword. to behold the Planes and the Beings corresponding to those Planes. This detail would appear to support the Illusion of the Abyss. The Flaming Sword is a symbol of Divine Presence. is developed. an Adept embodies the Little Tree. this Little Tree is “broken”.

The Sun shines. as the Childe evolves. You have the ability to do that exactly where you are in your lives. We perform our work.

There may be “things” which we must let go along the Way. Amen. Justice. Unfortunately. words and deeds. but there really is no-thing to sacrifice.

It is best that they never get out of balance. for many of us. To man. The Childe’s Initiation proceeds by serving as a receptacle of the Fire of the All-Father. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Tiphareth. What then is sacrifice? As we move along the Chosen Way. and then the Childe is moved by God’s Will accordingly. However. however. All is of God. However. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Tiphareth. Perfect balance is required for Initiation. As it is said. as the Childe expresses Will and Chia – the Life Force. and generally results in a further Illumination of the Angel’s Crown and an elevation of the Angel to a Higher Being (who may be appointed thereafter to further work with the new Childe of Binah but as counsel or a Secret Chief). into the standard of your True Will. we learn this late in life. we must move rightly in accord with the Word. There is no getting away with anything.ever more exalted as Initiation progresses and we move through the Aires closer to the First. Truth.“nor do I demand aught in sacrifice”.

but cast out – there is no separation. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Geburah. as Chokmah expresses IT. The Childe will eventually be redeemed. through which the Fire and Will of God will run though untainted. Amen. to see if the Childe has the strength to overcome the animal within and perform the Work. The experience of the adventure is heightened by the interposition of the animal soul in the Childe. we also behold a coming together on the Return Journey through the Aires. A Childe of Geburah takes the Oath to do only True Will. Who moves you Childe? Is it not God?! We turn our Eye unto Thee but it is Thee who so moves the Eye when the animal Childe has been placed in service of Thee. there really is no above or below. We are reminded here that the Childe is a Holy Vessel. The Little Tree appears to create distance between man and God. and nothing else. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. but how few actually take action to further their own redemption. Do what must be done! This is the Law of Thelema – Do True Will. with all of its animal desires. There appears to be that which is above and that which is below. Unswerving devotion to the Work is emphasized as the Eye always remains on the Work as these exalted states of consciousness are attained. All is One. The Holy Guardian Angel appears to stand between God and man as a Guard to those who may “cross the Abyss”.The 15th Aire (OXO).

This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. the Little Tree is imposed upon man (which is nothing other than a reflection of the Great Tree) to be overcome. The language of the Holy Oaths is simple enough. The former has simply forgotten ITS Name. No one is really harmed by the Great Curse as there really is no one other than God. As Chesed is Mercy. You just need to clean-up to get to the Pure Center. You are NEMO with dirt on your clothes. The Childe of Chokmah expresses that Will in all the Childe does. We behold the God of Change – the God of All motion in the Universe. We behold Babalon manifesting that which is below Her and Her Womb in which all change below occurs. We see God acting through the evolving Childe who becomes a more exalted and transparent vessel for the Light and Love of God to shine through. No man or NEMO is initiated as a Childe of Binah only when the Little Tree is gone and the embodied Starry structure is recognized to be none other than God’s. However. We see here another Spirit of God in a purer Aire. There is no 242 . While we behold the Sword of Chesed extending into Assiah. So take them!

Your voices carry great power if only you can learn to speak Truth. We behold God in our own motion – our thoughts. but it is not. Water and Fire are balanced in the Air. Liberation is just around the corner. Through the Childe’s Work. Each Oath is consistent with all your other obligations to mankind. the Childe may Reverse the Great Curse and reclaim His Starry heritage. We are One and come from None. It all seems so hard. all emphasizing the need to equilibrate the Supernal Energies as they flow through the Childe. There will be ordeals. Geburah reflects the Element of Fire on the Tree of Life. Geburah is Severity. In casting down such as in the Great Fall of Man. The 14th Aire (UTA). the Angel is God descending to work with you. Amen. words and deeds.

The Grand Illusion that there is a separation of man and God must be cast out. but a shedding of any remaining human aspects to allow the necessary transformations to occur and the Childe to be exalted and rise in the Sign of Mater Triumphant. The Ceremony shown on Atu VI entitled the Lovers now occurs. Every expression of your being is God expressing Itself through you. It is our sole function to do so. As a reflection. Let us consider then that the Little Tree is a reflection of the Great Tree. which is to serve as a Holy Vessel for God and to perform God’s Work. The Virgin Daughter is being prepared. There is no separation. and the Signs of the Work have changed to be that of the Babe of the Abyss. There is only “dust” of the Childe at this point in the Work. We are the Blood and Life of God here on Earth. Call to the Holy Angels and the Secret Chiefs for aid. The NOX formula saves. which must be broken before the Childe may first embody the Great Tree. leaping into the Arms of the Great Mother in Binah.

The Childe is now part of the Body of God. The Sphere must be perfectly organized and evolved on all Planes below before such exalted transformations may occur. Crossing the Abyss is not difficult for no effort is then required of the Childe. The Childe’s vessel is filled with the Prana of the Great Mother in Binah. These Children sit on the banks of the City of the Pyramids desiring Initiation and speaking of their great magickal accomplishments. we see how the Supernal Father precedes the Supernal Mother. The 9th Aire (ZIP). Binah manifests Chesed. all by the Hand of the Holy One. You perform no-thing of your self. No man is Initiated into Binah. Return to Her. The Great Curse contains within it a Promise for Redemption. but are never Initiated into Binah (meaning the Aires and corresponding Spiritual Spheres thereof). 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Binah.

The work is accomplished in advance. and so Understanding evolves. which directly receives and transmits God’s Will as a Compassionate Witness to God’s Work. and so the Initiate of Binah is called NEMO (meaning “no man”). All below the Supernal Realm is left behind. She has Become the Mother. and the Garden of Eden. The Children of Earth must be redeemed. the Great Tree is left below and the Childe enters in the Essence of the Mother. Love God in all that you do and offer every thought.

The right attitude towards the Work furthers accomplishment and Initiation. With the Eye wholly focused on the Shekinah. and so Binah has always been there waiting to receive the Childe. From this. The Childe no longer embodies any Tree. Be humble. By this. which is the Heavenly Eden. Glory to the Redeemed 245 .

This has been disclosed in the writings of the Sanctuary. 246 . God moves through all of us. especially until purity has been attained and exemption is granted from most ceremony. and the Vessel may be made Pure and Perfect for God to indwell.
