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!

Pain and suffering occur at the junction of Briah and Yitzirah. In the course of this Work. However.

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

The God and Childe will Work as one for the appointed time. If you are making the Magickal Signs as described above. Love under Will. As this is occurring during the words of the Invocation.

The Childe truly becomes a Soldier of the Great Work. to assist with the purification and consecration of the Childe to Love and prepare the Childe for the Work to come. The Elemental Weapons of the Childe are to be consecrated again. They exist purely in Spiritual form. Rather. The Childe is equipped with the Knowledge and Conversation of His Holy Guardian Angel and the Might to overcome the obstacles necessary to Walk in the Way of True Will. These are not physical things. the Work is accomplished solely by projection without physical movement. and its symbolism. This is purified and consecrated to the Great Work of the Childe to do True Will.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

We speak first of the Blade. Alchemical Sulphur is slightly below and to the right of the Square of the Five in the South-East. Air in the East. We reveal these Holy Symbols in their most exalted sense in the context of the Thelemic Pantheon. and forms the upper Supernal Plane in Briah. The Elemental Formula of this Plane is Fire 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. This has been referenced in other papers issued by the Sanctuary. This Tree has its inception in the North. Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. The Blade is formed about the Ancient Tree of Life in Kether known as Ygdrasil. though it is the Chalice which precedes the Blade upon High.

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.

If you seek to move rightly. Both the Aires and the Tree of Life in Yesod have Feminine qualities. whose image is of the Six-Fold Star. There is darkness everywhere. By rightly focusing the Eye.

However. The Aires are aspects of the Goddess. and who we serve. and what is attained in the Work. Yet how few take the time to investigate the matter. the Childe is fed by Her in ways which nurture the Childe along the Chosen Way. Love sweetens the animal soul and focuses and concentrates the animal will. whose thoughts and emotions are revealing the Son who is the Holy Guardian Angel and the issue of the Woman. We may look for arrows in the quiver and arm the bow. we are not. The Gods live through you. and in no way want to deny you the pleasures of Earth. in doing so. which is never ending. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Yesod. The lesson is a simple one. It reveals the Woman of Yesod in the most exalted sense. and calls to you to experience the energized ecstatic loving embrace of the Goddess. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7.

The Goddess calls to you now. All is accomplished by Love. Divine Love abides in your Soul. and is not the Goddess Love?! Love is Venus. look outwards. This equilibrium derives from Love. 237 . Love is the focus of the Work. there is the matter of the Great Curse. The Love of God in the Highest abides within you. We believe ourselves to be the Archer shooting the Arrows of our Will. Love the animal within you. which must be overcome and reversed Childe by Childe to redeem all of mankind. as the Childe becomes confounded by sensual desire. When the Eye is not rightly focused. We ascend the Planes and the Aires by rightly focusing the Eye on Love. to evolve as a Lion-Childe. and wash it with Love so it may be tamed and placed in right service. Love washes and restores calm and peace. we feel empty. Love. we regain our Starry heritage. The lesson of Love is to Love. Enough cannot be said about the importance of Love in this World and in the Initiation process. As we speak of the Woman in manifestation. Love. Crowned and Conquering going forth performing God’s Great Work in ever increasing harmony with the forces of the Universe. who is a lower aspect of Nuit but a separate Being who manifests Nuit Supernally. we speak of Babalon the Beautiful. The Will then may be concentrated and directed to its end. When the Eye is rightly focused. It is always with you. to assert the animal will to focus the Eye. repeatedly emphasized in the Sanctuary’s teachings but how few truly keep the Eye focused on the Shekinah – on Supernal Love which may be exalted to that flowing from Nuit’s Chalice. and so the Great Order of the Universe is ever changing in a state of perfect equilibrium. See through the Eye of God. illusion. where we have come from. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Hod. All else follows from there. However. We have forgotten what we are. but an Arrow of True Will is shot only by God’s Hand into and out of Love. Only by right focus of the Eye on Divine Love is redemption possible. We simply choose Love or we do not. She redeems Her wicked Children by turning their Eye to Her. However. We simply need to remember. Love is found within. Turn the Eye inwards and. When we don’t seem to. Will is Mercury. disharmony and confusion prevail. The Eye is on the Woman in the form of the Daughter. we have everything. and Love is the end. Love All as God for All is of God. This Aire encompasses the Spheres numbered 1.The 25th Aire (UTI). When we have Love. Every moment is an opportunity to express the Love which is in you. All may be enjoyed while keeping the Eye rightly focused. Heed Her call. It tempers the Fire of Will. like an Arrow shot by a skilled Archer. This Work is accomplished by Art. and to attain through Love. as Hod and Netzach are balanced and the Water is separated from the Fire. when tempering is appropriate. In this way. It is all so simple and so beautiful. Love. Amen.

There will be obstacles and ordeals. Ignorance is abounding among man. equilibrate. We adore Thee in Holy Silence. There is no-thing to give up and every-thing to gain. Your Life is God’s Breath. Use all that you have experienced. personal will or personal action. and assists us in attaining a more Universal perspective. Tread now the Path of Divine Joy. Yet God is here now. Even the darkness teaches through pain and suffering. Invoke often. which are engines of truth and beauty and turn the Eye to God. However. Crushed we are by the weight of this World. When we equilibrate. not on gain but on duty and. The 22nd Aire (LIN). evolve. to Venus and to the Sun. When we invoke. Things must be set right. The Sphere evolves from this process so it may be progressively identified with the Holy One and the Holy None (the Qabalistic Zero). yet an indivisible part of the Whole. You pick which aspect teaches you. evolve. This is the Mystery of the Childe of Nuit most exalted. which involves an absorption and integration of the energies into the Sphere. Initiation involves a stripping away of the layers of the self to arrive at the True Self. The senses are the chains to the physical world. we balance and assimilate. Equilibration opens the Eye to the energies. as the Curse of the Fall of Man has confounded man by his senses. You shine. transcend human sorrow and find True Life in the Love and Light of God. and placing your self in God’s service. we call energies or forces into the Sphere. There comes a time when the path of pleasure ends and the Path of Divine Joy begins. which is your Secret Center. Amen. unique. to the Moon. The work begins with you who you perceive as separate from the rest of the Universe. Is not all of life a lesson in pain and suffering?! Lift off the bonds of darkness. Focus. There is more to this life than the path of pleasure. thereby. Sacrifice them to the Infernal Gods. the duty will be rightly performed glorifying God. Proceed with courage into the dark so that you may find the Light and the Love which manifests IT. But why such Holiness is such an early Aire as TOR?! Are not the Mysteries revealed in the First Order and progressively exalted?! No sooner than we lift ourselves up from Earth do we find ourselves flying. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Hod. so they may be burnt and no more. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. yet before us everywhere is God.only lessons. Who are you? How may you serve God? To what purpose are you fitted to serve the Great White Brotherhood? Strip away notions of personal separateness. to Mercury. Free your self by turning your Eye to God and ask for liberation on the Royal Path of Initiation. We look and there appears to be No-God.The 23rd Aire (TOR). equilibrate. You are called to duty now. We all have our unique course of evolution as a Star. gather your resources and undertake the Holy Work with courage. equilibrated and experienced with each step. The path of pleasure which man treads provides short-term gratification but is unrewarding or unsatisfying over the long-term. Invoke. which is foreshadowed by the Mystery of the Childe of Kether who finds the True Self in Selflessness. as the Childe climbs the Tree of Life seeking the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. equilibrate. transcend the physical and notions of personal separateness and find Unity in God. Nuit embraces that. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. God and the Devil are One. There are no mistakes . but the Light is not your own. Being is found in Not-Being. no soaring in the Womb of the Goddess. We behold God in man. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Hod. Invoke. which veil the Spiritual Being indwelling man. and may enjoy the pleasures of Heaven and Earth in the course of your service. We look from Earth to the Gods in Heaven. Dark may God appear. It is all about the focus of the Eye. evolve. For what abides within is of such pure and perfect beauty that any words would taint.

Your Magick is practiced in all aspects of how you live your life. Harmony and Love and establishing the Law. As we travel through the Aires. Initiation involves coming to know and experience different aspects of the Universe through the Holy 239 .The 21st Aire (ASP). She is the Aires. Is there no greater or more important task than to serve God with a loving and devoted heart?! Cannot you serve your charges best by serving God and evolving as a vessel for the Light and Love of God to shine through?! O’ my God. Is not this a task of the Childe of Chesed?! And is not Venus Love?! The message continues to repeat itself – Love rules the Universe. Balance. Initiates will then derive their own meanings from the accounts in the context of their own initiations. Love All. which are the Waters of Creation. if you allow it to be. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. spiral energies issue forth from Her mouth. friends and even casual acquaintances. the Wheel turns the Angels’ cry!!! They turn at Her Hand. Great power and great beauty is seen in Her. The Sephiroth also have male and female characteristics. May the Light of the Divine Wisdom transform and heal us. and Her Name is Love. She moves the axle which stirs the energies and causes the revolution. Enlighten us through Love. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Netzach. This is seen in all work below. To Love God is a means of serving God. Change is the basis of stability. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. Love nurtures as Venus reappears. Her Essence abides in them. She appears to be manifesting the Daughter in Malkuth. All change is at Her Hand. and IT beams with warmth and Love. As She speaks. Amen. Therefore. we continue to experience the Spirits of God on an ever more exalted basis. which is easily washed and placed in service of God for those who love God. moving what it is to be moved. but they are positive manifestations in the Aires. The animal will is seen only as an extension of God’s will. All of evolution is change. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Netzach. Venus appears as the King’s Daughter. every task you perform. here in the form of human love. The Aires are the Feminine aspects surrounding the Male manifestations of the Sephiroth. fostering Justice. There could be many accounts of each Aire. Human love may thereby be transformed into a form of bhakti or practice of Loving God who is seen in all. Crowned with a Diadem of Stars. and through the symbols you are given – your family. Is She not Nuit as Venus?! Is She not Nuit moving the Childe?! Is She not the Childe?! The Gunas revolve. The Love washes. We behold God upon high nurturing all below with the Holy Water. which revolves. Every thing you do. which is governed by IT. The Childe of Chesed is to evolve into a Mighty King or Queen and then into the Virgin Daughter to continue to evolve in accord with the Formula of the Tetragrammaton. all of which could be accurate. to heighten awareness as to the Nature of the Aires. and assist in the healing of the human race. word and deed must be placed in service. and at the same time She appears as the Holy Guardian Angel. The Wisdom and Love of God will be your guide. She bears the Scepter showing She has the Power of the King. Additional Commentary: There is great difficulty in communicating an account of the Aires for different messages could be communicated based on level of Initiation. The 20th Aire (KHR). She appears all at once as Father. Mother and Son manifesting the Daughter. The Aires contain the Wisdom of the Aeons and are the substance flowing from the Robe of the High Priestess of Atu II and forming the rivers flowing through the Tarot. All of Initiation involves change. every thought. Such is the Mystery of the Childe of Chokmah. and allows the Love and Light of God to shine through you and help all those around you. She abides in All. The Universe responds to Her Word. and we behold them as such. It is the Nature of the Female about the Male which is to be communicated in this paper. I behold Thy Face. You then become a Source of Light and Love to the Universe.

The Angels sing praise. Love is a means of coming to know these aspects as they abide in the Aires. as the lower is washed and evolves into the Higher. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7.Work. but what is paid is of no value and what is gained is God’s Embrace and Love. Glorify God in all that you do. This role may be fulfilled in private/silence or publically. and remember. The First and Second Orders are about evolving the Little Tree which the Childe embodies. to recognize those aspects as part of your Self. There is no need to run away to a monastery up in the mountains to utterly devote your self to God and God’s work. remains a Childe. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. Within the vessel. The Eye is wholly on the Shekinah. Love is purified and exalted. The Childe of Earth evolves into the Virgin Daughter. and then into the Mother and the Father (the Woman and the Man). 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Tiphareth. Yea. pleasurable or reverent task. The Work is not easy. The Power of Love and to Love is shown. We preach of the Healing Power of Love. Comfort and Bliss in Thee. which is Supernal Love. Perform every act to the Glory of your God and. In all cases. to the subject matter of the Work. from this perspective. as the Childe evolves. We sit. It is in the nature of the Work to teach and to Heal. the Childe’s role is to serve as a Redeemer to the Children of Earth. but perform them rightly. the Aires speak to All. they always speak to Love and to Death. The 19th Aire (POP). Amen. So what are we to do? How may we serve Thee and the Great White Brotherhood? Pray. What are we to do with our miserable lives? Are we to patch together brief moments of pleasure and happiness. Eventually. As Initiation progresses beyond Tiphareth. purified by Love. our lives seem almost meaningless. not just those of the Third Order. the Childe’s Star is consumed by the Fire of Hadit. Look up and never down. and perfectly equilibrated. the Glory of God in the Highest may shine. We are also reminded that. Your work at home and elsewhere are your tasks at your monastery. This is the price all must pay to Reverse the Curse. Your bedroom is your cell in your monastery. The Invisible Sun of Kether shines in the Heart of Tiphareth and Illumines All. Not-Being may be attained through Being. the Work becomes more about others and less about the Initiate until the Third Order when the Childe has been Redeemed and now works as part of the Body of God to redeem the rest of mankind. We struggle. Beyond this. The lesson is to direct and concentrate the Ruach (Mind). glory and worship. You have the ability to do that exactly where you are in your lives. This is attained by loving God in all you do from the simplest most miserable little task to the most important. and there are ordeals to be endured before man regains their Starry heritage. Such is always the case. We endure. however. the Sun in the Aires! We are reminded that the Aires concern all levels of Initiation. So does the Son. or is there a higher purpose? In the absence of the latter. As an aspect of the Goddess. The Sun brings Light and Life to man. and the Childe attains to the True Self through Selflessness. and the Glory is 240 . and so do the Mother and Father and the Holy One who moves All of them. The 18th Aire (ZEN). we wait for Thy Word. Although the Aires are Gates of Understanding to be consecutively opened by those of the Third Order to enter the Cities of Wisdom and further Illumine the Natal Crown. There is a cost. The tasks are not always easy or fun. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Netzach. and allow your prayers to be answered. Every one of us is important. We attempt to maintain right balance and move ever so rightly along the Chosen Way. The Sun shines. which is so simple and so little understood for the Love we speak of is Divine Love. We perform our work. sit and wait. love and devotion to the Holy Names of God. but in all cases great activity is required. Man has fallen. in so doing. and every one of us makes a difference. Love and let Love not be degraded or soiled in any way. the Childe on Earth remains a vessel and. Amen. We find Eternal Joy.

And so it is for the Initiate who has entered the King’s Chamber in Tiphareth and become a Young King or Queen. The Holy Work must not be left undone! No-thing is sacrificed if what is done is in accord with the Law. There is no one to cheat but your self. Resolve everything. and a great deal must be dealt with to transcend the karma. This. there is nothing besides a “little pile of dust” which enters the City of the Pyramids in Binah. Amen. karma is transcended. This is how We act. honesty and fair dealing are always required in all aspects of life. As it is said. Look to God’s Face. into the standard of your True Will. The Eye of God is always upon you. This may be the case. 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). The Childe’s Initiation proceeds by serving as a receptacle of the Fire of the All-Father. Treading the Royal Path of Initiation requires courage and determination to do what must be done. all thoughts. what is to be let go is not of man’s will but a matter of Natural Law. for many of us. or not. therefore. who becomes Nemo – the Childe is no longer a man but an embodiment of the Great Mother in Binah and part of the Body of God. Be the Sun. Truth. We get our just rewards. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Tiphareth. if this is so directed in the course of the Work. The Universe responds to the Word of the King spoken in the Voice of the Master. however.ever more exalted as Initiation progresses and we move through the Aires closer to the First. And so the King speaks the Word and brings Justice and Liberation to man. There is Unity in the Supernal Realm and so there is right balance – perfect equilibrium – at all times. and Thy Will be done. However. What then is sacrifice? As we move along the Chosen Way. which is bestowed with the Great Curse. As Nuit says in Liber AL I:58 . Perfect balance. There is direct correspondence with Kether – the Natal Crown shines brightly. when the Little Tree is broken. Nature is just but not necessarily fair. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Tiphareth. We must calculate rightly which is a part of right action. Unfortunately. Perfect balance is required for Initiation. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. There are accounts which must be maintained and balanced. and so is Justice. and so the pile of dust which enters the City of the Pyramids is burnt to a White ASh and placed in an Urn in the Tomb of the All-Father. Sacrifice is perceived as a part of Initiation. The remnants of once was is the “dust” of the Childe. It is. The Fire and Water create perfect balance on the Middle Pillar. It is best that they never get out of balance. we learn this late in life. The 17th Aire (TAN). we must move rightly in accord with the Word. There may be “things” which we must let go along the Way. as the Childe expresses Will and Chia – the Life Force. There is no getting away with anything. once we rise above Yitzirah. words and deeds. Amen. 241 . Justice. Death is followed by Life. There is a sacrifice of the Holy Guardian Angel when the Little Tree is broken and the Childe is set upon the Throne of the Mother. so the Sun may proceed with the Blessings of All above.“nor do I demand aught in sacrifice”. and then the Childe is moved by God’s Will accordingly. All is of God. the Work of an Initiate may at times seem selfish. Amen. proper and Righteous. but there really is no-thing to sacrifice. The animal will directs the Eye. represents an accomplishment of the Great Work of the Angel. Your life is not your life. To man. There is no desire but God’s Desire. However. There is no will besides God’s Will. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. in that the Initiate has a clear course of action which sometimes seems to not take into account the opinions of others. and due penalty when so appropriate. The 16th Aire (LEA). it is God’s life to be lived as God so Wills. Initiation – these are the themes. There is a human choice to direct the Eye to God.

You simply need to take the walk. Amen. The Grand Illusion of the Abyss which separates God and man is beheld. The Holy Mother awaits Her wicked little Children who She nourishes with Light and Love. the Angel is God descending to work with you. The 13th Aire (ZIM). However. While we behold the Sword of Chesed extending into Assiah. Work is required to overcome the Grand Illusion. Unswerving devotion to the Work is emphasized as the Eye always remains on the Work as these exalted states of consciousness are attained. Then it is simply a matter of doing – abiding by the Holy Oaths. but cast out – there is no separation. We are One and come from None. 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. but it is not. Liberation is just around the corner. Amen. action is required of man to do this. The former has simply forgotten ITS Name. through which the Fire and Will of God will run though untainted. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Geburah. Geburah reflects the Element of Fire on the Tree of Life. The Childe’s body then evolves as a Pure Vessel. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Geburah. The Holy Guardian Angel appears to stand between God and man as a Guard to those who may “cross the Abyss”. Yea. Through the Childe’s Work. all emphasizing the need to equilibrate the Supernal Energies as they flow through the Childe. There are multiple aspects of this Aire. 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. It all seems so hard.The 15th Aire (OXO). We behold Babalon manifesting that which is below Her and Her Womb in which all change below occurs. We behold the God of Change – the God of All motion in the Universe. As Chesed is Mercy. The language of the Holy Oaths is simple enough. All is One. as Chokmah expresses IT. express IT. Water and Fire are balanced in the Air. man and God are One. there really is no above or below. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. There appears to be that which is above and that which is below. The Little Tree appears to create distance between man and God. 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. Initiation is a simple process once the basic tenets are grasped. with all of its animal desires. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. Each Oath is consistent with all your other obligations to mankind. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Geburah. The experience of the adventure is heightened by the interposition of the animal soul in the Childe. to see if the Childe has the strength to overcome the animal within and perform the Work. You just need to clean-up to get to the Pure Center. Do what must be done! This is the Law of Thelema – Do True Will. the Little Tree is imposed upon man (which is nothing other than a reflection of the Great Tree) to be overcome. Geburah is Severity. A Childe of Geburah takes the Oath to do only True Will. The Childe of Chokmah expresses that Will in all the Childe does. So take them! Fulfill the roles which have been appointed for you by fulfilling your Holy Duties to God. There will be ordeals. However. Your voices carry great power if only you can learn to speak Truth. The Childe will eventually be redeemed. In casting down such as in the Great Fall of Man. We are reminded here that the Childe is a Holy Vessel. and nothing else. There is no 242 . We see here another Spirit of God in a purer Aire. the Childe may Reverse the Great Curse and reclaim His Starry heritage. but how few actually take action to further their own redemption. we also behold a coming together on the Return Journey through the Aires. You are NEMO with dirt on your clothes. The 14th Aire (UTA). but you must endure with courage to the Glory of God. The Childe will Return by action or by physical death. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. We behold God in our own motion – our thoughts. No one is really harmed by the Great Curse as there really is no one other than God. words and deeds.

We are all equal under God. all unfolds. Any such operation would be carefully guided by the Angel so only those Aires most appropriate to complete the alchemical operation are experienced in proper sequence and at the right times. be communicated to all the Children of Earth. as the Childe works with the Female from the inception of the Initiation Process. You see God’s purpose which gives meaning. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. As magickal and spiritual evolution progresses. the Sword (or Wand) Flames and the Word is spoken in the Voice of the Master.difference between us upon High. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Chesed. our appointed roles to fulfill. The meanings of events. See yourself in your Holy Form. an infinite number of subjects may be addressed. the foreshadowing of the future. The Spoken Word carries Great Divine Power when the Crown is worn. Life is also about the Great Work . By serving as a Source of Light and Love to our charges. The 12th Aire (LOE). As we see through All. We all have our gardens to tend to. The Word establishes the Law. the Male aspects show the Female aspects. wearing the Natal Crown as a Mighty King or Queen of God. It is the perspective of the Aire which “flavors” the response. God and man are One. to rid your consciousness of the Yitziratic aspects that cause you to perceive a separation between God and man. though the Male and not so much the Female appears to be the subject of the experiments. support and Love your Brothers and Sisters. This would vary from Childe to Childe based on the Childe’s starry make-up. the Daughter evolves and Becomes the Virgin Daughter. In so doing. which is the initial subject of Initiation. Hence. There is division below the Supernal Planes and Unity above Yitzirah. it is said the Aires contain the Knowledge of the Aeons and form the Robe of the High Priestess. When the Sword flames with the Fire of God. And so the Word flows into manifestation through our thoughts. so that you may be moved ever so rightly along the Chosen Way. Purity comes from doing only True Will and Loving All as God. Therefore. Allow the Love and Light of God to continually purify and consecrate you to the Great Work. Work for God. That Little Tree which you embody simply has to be shed. The quality of the Aires can. Within each Aire. Similarly. who then is prepared to be set upon the Throne of the Great Mother. The Aires are also used to deepen the perspective of the Childe of Nuit. the power to see and dispose of things according to God’s Will evolves. and is communicated down the Tree and though the Planes. We practice Magick through how we lead our lives. and may the Blessings and Power of God be with you. the Power to Act is something which evolves in those utterly devoted to God’s Work and the Great White Brotherhood. We are all the Sons and Daughters of Nuit and Hadit. Live and Love! Life is about the experience – learn from all you have to draw upon. Let the Power of Discrimination be sharpened so you see through God’s Eye. Man is One. We all have our Work and our various roles 243 . and vice versa. that is in accord with the Law and spoken by God (at times through the Childe) carries with it the Power of God. but our Work and life circumstances differ. Amen. Everyone’s efforts are important. Exalt your being. we fulfill our Holy Duties and promote Universal harmony. Therefore. Most Exalted. however. the Childe may speak in the Voice of the Master in furtherance of the Great Work. who is Not. nurture. And so Vir evolves into Puella. Additional Commentary: The Aires are now seen as an entirely separate Initiatory System into the Female of the Universe that complements the Initiation Process of a Member of the Holy Third Order into the Male-Spiritual aspects of the Universe. for only right speech which is furtherance of the Great Work. The Eye opens by God’s Hand. and especially your charges. words and deeds. speak rightly. The Aires may also be used to affect a magickal/mystickal alchemy within a Childe who is an Adept before they are used to open 30 of the 48 Gates of Understanding.the work of man is secondary and is only important once placed in the context of the Great Work. all as God.

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. We see the Supernal Triad taking the Childe through the Abyss and into Binah. the more God will evolve that being and reveal the Holy Mysteries. The Supernal Mother manifests Chesed in Her Womb. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. the Abyss is the Grand Illusion that must be cast out. It is our sole function to do so. and the Holy Guardian Angel (which 244 . The Virgin Daughter is being prepared. as she still embodies the Little Tree. Move rightly through them as part of your Great Work. The Ceremony shown on Atu VI entitled the Lovers now occurs. even the Great Tree falls. The Childe is no longer “human” strictly speaking but a Divine vessel. the Childe must dispense with this illusion. You and God are ever One. to the Glory of God. However. A Jupiter Talisman is prepared during the course of the Work of the Childe of Chesed to purify and consecrate the Childe (which is the true focus of the preparation of the Talisman) as Pure and Perfect. As it has been said. As a reflection. Amen. Additional Commentary. What precedes thought is the Intuition of the Neschamah. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Chesed. There is the matter of the Little Tree. The Balances have been attained. We are the Blood and Life of God here on Earth. The Childe now stands at its edge. We all bear the Holy Grail. The Little Tree is broken. Let us consider then that the Little Tree is a reflection of the Great Tree. Consider the ordeals man has experienced over time in service of God. There may seem to be.the Ruach purified to such a degree that it is now being perceived to be the Ruach Elohim. we truly only have one real purpose in this life. The Yitziratic aspects of the Childe have now been “buffed” . This is learned when initially working with the Path of Qoph. the Childe realizing all being to be wholly Divine.to fulfill. The human ego is seen as purely Divine expression. But let us remember that the Abyss is the Grand Illusion which separates man and God. the Tree has been purified by Love and consecrated by Will. However. To “cross the Abyss”. the Childe leaps with Love. up or down. which must be broken before the Childe may first embody the Great Tree. the leap does not necessitate a fall. The 10th Aire (ZAX). which is to serve as a Holy Vessel for God and to perform God’s Work. Thus. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Chesed. Every expression of your being is God expressing Itself through you. The Grand Illusion that there is a separation of man and God must be cast out. However. Hence is it said that the answer precedes the question. Ordeals are opportunities. Call to the Holy Angels and the Secret Chiefs for aid. Use them as such. There is a separation of God and man only in the consciousness of man. There is no personal will or action. as the Childe’s vessel is drained and is filled with the Essence of the Great Mother. Then. the only choice is how to focus the Eye. The more you devote your being to God. Some Children may be more evolved than others. Pure and Perfect. She is still the Daughter. who shall make the Childe part of Her Holy Essence. There is no you. The Mighty King or Queen has evolved into a Perfect Childe. And is not the initial source of all illusion the Moon. The Eye must be rightly focused to avoid distraction and illusion. The Childe has been made Chaste. There is no separation. for what formulates the question in the mind of the Childe already has the answer to communicate. Amen. The next Aire shall take the Childe deep into the Abyss. The 11th Aire (IKH). However. You embody God and so they will respond to you. and the Signs of the Work have changed to be that of the Babe of the Abyss. Serve God and God shall serve you. The NOX formula saves. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. it creates an illusion of separateness. there are no exceptions. ever with the Eye to God to guide. There is only “dust” of the Childe at this point in the Work. leaping into the Arms of the Great Mother in Binah.

The Children of Earth must be redeemed. but are never Initiated into Binah (meaning the Aires and corresponding Spiritual Spheres thereof). The focus of the Eye changes. From this. the Great Tree is left below and the Childe enters in the Essence of the Mother. word and deed in service of God. Every person on Earth may reclaim their Starry heritage by taking action to do so. She is admitted unto the Supernal Realm. The Mother cares for Her Children. Additional Commentary: The Malkuth of the Tree of Life in Binah contains the Tree of Life in Chesed. All below the Supernal Realm is left behind. Her Holy Duties now change. The Childe who began the Return Journey in Assiah has been redeemed and is brought into the Palace of the King’s Daughter. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. Rather. No man is Initiated into Binah. And so the Virgin Daughter is redeemed and set upon the Throne of the Mother. which is the Heavenly Eden. The Great Curse contains within it a Promise for Redemption. the Nature of the Work is to tend to the Childe’s garden. and so Understanding evolves.seemingly stood between the Mother and the Daughter) is sacrificed. and so Binah has always been there waiting to receive the Childe. Although the Childe’s Initiation remains an issue. and so the Initiate of Binah is called NEMO (meaning “no man”). We are reminded here that the Tree of Life in Binah is contained in the Malkuth of the Tree of Life in Chokmah. The work is accomplished in advance. Binah manifests Chesed. Be humble. bless and protect your Work in furtherance of this Holy Goal. which directly receives and transmits God’s Will as a Compassionate Witness to God’s Work. The 9th Aire (ZIP). Perform the Holy Work simply out of duty and desiring nothing in return. God’s Hand is seen in every-thing. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Binah. You cross only by God’s Hand. we see again how the Childe rises from Tree to Tree. It is said that some are taken across the Abyss and enter the Malkuth of the Tree of Life in Binah. The Childe no longer embodies any Tree. we change all of mankind. This is how God works on the Earth. Crossing the Abyss is not difficult for no effort is then required of the Childe. She has Become the Mother. Amen. which is fulfilled in this Aire. temporarily embodies the Great Tree. There now stands No-thing between the Childe and the Mother. and the Garden of Eden. The Childe is now part of the Body of God. By practicing Magick through the symbols we are given. With the Eye wholly focused on the Shekinah. The Work of the Redeemed Childe is to redeem others. The Supernal Triangle is perceived on the lower Briatic Plane (apex in the West). As the Childe rises up through the Supernal Triangle into the Supernal Realm. The Childe’s vessel is filled with the Prana of the Great Mother in Binah. Love God in all that you do and offer every thought. She also responds to the Father. women and children in this world. Glory to the Redeemed 245 . They are symbols of all the other men. the Childe is lifted up by God to the Gates of the Supernal Realm. In the form of a Childe. Yet He is Known only through Her. and thereby Becomes the Mother. All the forces of the Universe will empower. She is to receive from above and transmit to that which is below. all by the Hand of the Holy One. it is your True Self which Acts. The Childe. Let this not be you. You perform no-thing of your self. no longer “human” strictly speaking. She experiences Heaven on Earth and Understands. The Sphere must be perfectly organized and evolved on all Planes below before such exalted transformations may occur. whose Powers manifest through Her. to those charges which have been brought to the Childe for care and development. and She manifests the Redeemed Childe. 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. Return to Her. By this. The right attitude towards the Work furthers accomplishment and Initiation.

as well as the Childe. The process of “baking” takes some time. Any magickal powers or skill that you may exhibit or experience are of God. However. She is the hallowed tube of the Wand which the Fire runs through. God formulates and moves the Angel. we have every-thing which is No-Thing. 246 . the Truth is simple. She continually gives of Herself to Her Children which are of Her. whose consciousness has been exalted to the Briatic Realm. Ask for the Eye to be opened unto the Formulae. Work nobly out of service and duty. As the Childe of Binah receives the Fire of the All-Father and moves along the Path of Daleth. and the Vessel may be made Pure and Perfect for God to indwell. no suffering in the Supernal Realm. There is Magickal Formulae to be fulfilled in connection with each Oath for a Sephira. but may be expedited by Understanding the process. the Childe. the prior Work assists in organizing the Childe’s Sphere according to the Formulae of the Planes and cleaning it up. but you cannot desire Her. Wisdom is found in Understanding. Becomes the Scarlet Woman. Evolution requires the Scarlet Woman to be produced before the Childe may be transformed into a Magus. The Holy Guardian Angel is seen merely a link. albeit necessary at first. It is He who projects. Let Her Power to Love Silence the Waters to all but Her Desire. The 7th Aire (DEO). 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Binah. and tempers Will. partaking of the Fire. as to the nature of the Work and how best to perform and accomplish the Work. It is said that any Childe may take the Oath of the Childe of Binah. With Love. This has been disclosed in the writings of the Sanctuary. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Binah. Love is the answer and the key. regardless of prior Work. It may seem fantastic at first that a Childe may commune directly with God. we must “clean-up” before God allows us to Return to Eden. so the Childe’s consciousness may be progressively exalted to cast out all illusion. and She will respond. which is His Will. There is no Sorrow. The 8th Aire (ZID). To do so would entail disaster. between God and man in the consciousness of man. especially until purity has been attained and exemption is granted from most ceremony.

God moves through all of us. God lives through you. evolution rightly proceeds. However. The focus is on the relations of Briah and Yitzirah. The Daughter is the Mother. Hail unto the Goddess. just as the Abyss is the Grand Illusion. You have no magickal powers or skill. and are engines of truth and beauty just as any other guidance we receive from God. the Angel is God descending the Planes. It is said that too much Light is blinding. Pain and suffering occur at the junction of Briah and Yitzirah. The Eucharist of Blood (DM) is of great importance in the practice of Magick. an illusion of sorts. without desire. The Childe of Binah now sees clearly into the Planes below. sees these Yitziratic experiences as necessary to the evolution of man in relation to the Great Curse. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. However. and the Role of the Holy Guardian Angel in relation to mankind. A Childe of Binah. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. However. Their blood is One. Your blood is Her blood. Amen.Daughter in Malkuth. The Little Tree is a reflection of the Great Tree within the Sphere of the Childe and.

Consider all of your life events in an Initiatory context. having been submitted to the Fire of the All-Father. It is True that our Starry structures are shown by our Natal Crowns. The Universe is then gradually reduced down to the Holy Trinity of Nuit. where only Nuit and Hadit exist. However. Love tempers Will as it is expressed. However. This is the Law of Thelema. Nuit’s Chalice touches the Square of the Holy One at the Apex of the Blade. to further cause you to pray for relief. In all due course. She formulates and moves Him.

Love is the Law. the Will and the Glory of God. The Symbol of Alchemical Sulphur appears showing one of the three markers delineating the Blade. We seemingly struggle with giving “ourselves” to God. The Urn holds. Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit as the Face of Spirit. They will do what it takes to make change. Many who are innocent get caught in the cross-fire. We are moved by God in all ways. to be redeemed from the pain and suffering of this World. However. The only Law is to do God’s Will. We first behold God through ITS various aspects. It is said that the little pile of dust (representing the remnants of a Childe’s being) which entered the City of Pyramids upon being admitted as a Childe of Binah is burnt to a White “ASh” (Hebrew for fire) and placed in an Urn in the Tomb of the All-Father when the Childe is admitted as a Childe of Chokmah. it is an indivisible part of the Whole. What will it take to turn your Eye to God? The Angels are militant in this New Aeon. Additional Commentary: The Fire of God also causes the Ordeals of Initiation. who moves you through your Spirit and senses. which itself is the Sigil of Fire. this tempering does not weaken.

Within Her manifests the Fire. renouncing selfish works and surrendering the rewards of our work to God. Amen. The Fire is sent down this Tau moving all below in accord with the Word. and behold God’s Wisdom unfold. this struggle is but illusion. We do no-thing in and of ourselves. Love is the sole Ruling Principle. War. This is all a matter of perspective. For what exists beyond this World is of far greater beauty than any thing on Earth – Perfect Peace and Bliss. Move when you hear the Word and as God Wills. but strengthens the Hand of God which is felt as the Strength of Spirit. those who do not will experience the Fire of God in the form of pain and suffering until the Eye turns.

To the contrary. It is true that a Childe on the Royal Road of Initiation will be required to face and conquer demons. You then evolve as a Holy Soldier of sorts tarrying to perform the Great Work appointed. 251 . These stigmatisms relating to Magick have been created in the past to further certain cultural mores and institutional goals. The Childe must have courage and determination to overcome the demons. you must ask questions. Although every Childe of Earth is born wearing the Natal Crown. your Initiation will not end. imposes great responsibility. whether in this life or one past.WEARING THE CROWN (The Purpose of your Life) Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe Copyright © 2009 Sanctuary of Thoth. so they may be spiritualized and placed in service of the Childe’s Work. requires the Childe to swear Oaths of fealty to the Crown.

Be he damned for a dog!” 7 The structure of the Ritual is posted to the Sanctuary’s website and may be found in the paper entitled “A Ritual to Celebrate the Festival of the Equinox”. Verse 31.

He shall fall down into the pit called Because. marking the beginning of Anno IVxvi (104) of the New Aeon of Horus.

Verse 20 (III:20) referencing “the fall of Because”. However. all “Reason” is itself subject to contradiction. Therefore. This raises issues about hearing the Word and knowing your Will. When one knows the Word.e. and the expression of the Will of your True Self (i. and not just symbolically. one acts instinctively on the Word. and relativity below the Abyss. “Why” poses a question. As Reason occurs below the Abyss. This is not to say that the Book of the Law is opposed to reason. 258 . As indicated in the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation. This is actually. There is Unity above the Abyss. The outcome is “Reason”. This is in the nature of Reason. meaning do Thy Will (i. and Divine Power. is inherently imperfect compared to Truth. “Knowledge” is the Childe of Chokmah and Binah. So what is the message from this text. the curse upon “Because” in Verses 28 and 29. your True Will). This provides insight into Verse 27 and the others quoted. and the exclamatory statements in Verse 33.
