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!

Suffering is caused by desire to move towards things which attract and away from things which repulse. Air and Earth. and other Systems of Initiation which are complete to bring the Childe to the Supreme realization that each one of us is a Spiritual Being living a human life (and not vice versa). This is done by the “destruction of ignorance” and the “acquisition of right views” in Buddhist terminology.

However. the purpose for it is seen and beheld as necessary in the Great Work. and only the Spiritual Being abides and moves. This is done initially using the Yitziratic Hexagram. our Work is to be refined and honed into a Pure and Perfect Vessel for the Spiritual Being inhabiting us to Work without any obstruction. which is an aspect of the Work of the Childe of Tiphareth. you will discover the absence of an ego in all aggregates. Put an end to your suffering. The Childe perceives Heaven on Earth. Amen. Reverse the Curse which has been placed upon you arising from the Fall of Man. This is not to say that the Childe no longer suffers the same pain of aging or injury just like any other human. It is time for man to make further progress in this regard. When you discover your True Self and your True Will. your effort is required. You can do it! However.

Pain and suffering occur at the junction of Briah and Yitzirah. still must attain unto Nuit in the Ultimate Initiation and enter into Not-Being. Only you can do your Work. The Work of the Second Order is. However. we behold the Nature of All things (attain “right views”). and may you experience Heaven on Earth. Ultimately. without exception. As a result. even the Childe of Kether. and the Path of Gimel to attain to Kether (the Paths of Aleph and Beth are always expressive and lead away from Kether – they are not part of the Way of Return in these exalted stages of Initiation).

After the aspirant takes the Oath of the Childe of Tiphareth. you will be assuming the position of the Sun. These formulae are used until the aspirant receives initiation into the four lower Sephiroth and the corresponding elemental formulae. so the Sephiroth are arranged about your Sphere according to the following formula: East South West North Tiphareth Netzach Yesod Hod In the center of your Sphere.

It is said that Magickal Power is granted to the Childe of Geburah. and even a flickering. and the Will of your True Self which is your True Will. which is granted during this stage of evolution. The rest of us must do our best to interpret and act on the guidance we receive. but the Chosen Way is always Righteous. which will be to fight the illusions of personal separateness by cultivating Fire and Sword. The reason for this is that the Angel now performs the Magick through the Childe. through practical experience gained during this period. and then prepare to take the Oath of the Childe of Geburah when you are so guided. As you enter into this phase of work. sometimes somewhat begrudgingly. is expressed only by a Childe of Kether and a Childe of Chokmah. Consider in connection with this the equation of 5 = 6. As alluded to above. and the forces of the Universe. When it is time. This was explained above as the elements of the Childe (the 5) being identified with the Angel (the 6) as the source of all their movement. it is recommended that you prepare a rite of initiation in the context of the Ritual of the Stars. know that True Will is revealed to an aspirant subject to the level of the aspirant’s initiation. This may be intermittent at first. nor should one necessarily stop and ask “why”. flow through. The “6” here references the Angel. The Childe of Geburah will learn. During this rite.

to be initiated into the Mysteries. which is the lowest point on the Heavenly Hexagram. Pray to attain the perspective of the initiated Childe of Geburah. it is recommended that you spend five full Solar Cycles focusing the Eye on nothing but initiating into the Great Order of the Universe as a Childe of Geburah. Then. After the conclusion of this five Solar Cycle initiation period. and the effects of performing it. Thus. This will result in a progressive unfolding of your initiation rite. Chesed (the 4) and Geburah (the 5). Mercury corresponds with Chokmah (the 2). the Sun corresponds with Tiphareth (the 6 ). Then. Venus corresponds with Chesed (the 4). Binah (the 3) and Chokmah (the 2). When you have reached this stage. it is comprised of a Red Ascending Triangle and a Blue Descending Triangle. It is recommended that you take the Oath of the Path of Maim at the beginning of your period of initiation and remain subject to this Oath for the first two Solar Cycles. it is recommended that you take the Oath of the Path of Lamed and remain subject to this Oath for the remaining three Solar Cycles during your initiation period. When your Sphere has reformulated on the Solar Plane. the Oath of the Childe of Geburah should be read aloud. The Oath of the Childe of Geburah would also be taken five separate times during your initiation rites. The Planetary correspondences to the Heavenly Hexagram also differ: Jupiter corresponds with Kether (the 1). an Atziluthic) consciousness. It is recommended that you perform your rite of initiation as a Childe of Geburah five times. finally. Mars corresponds with Geburah (the 5).Elohim Gibor (Atziluthic) Kamael (Briatic) Seraphim (Yitziratic) Madim (Assiatic) At the conclusion of the rite. you are encouraged to take the Oath of the Path selected by your Angel. take care to make sure your Sphere is properly organized according to the laws of the Solar Plane (as described in the Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars). signed and sealed as you know how. The Heavenly Hexagram is described in the Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars. and. The points of the Blue Descending Triangle correspond to Tiphareth (the 6). The points of the Red Ascending Triangle correspond to Kether (the 1). and equilibrate the Energies. with the Eye focused on rising and reformulating the Sphere on the Solar Plane according to the formula given in the Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars. the Sphere should unformulate on the Lower Astral Plane. the Moon corresponds with Binah (the 3). to consecrate your being to the True Will from the perspective of Geburah. Take a Eucharist of the Mars energy as you will already know how. When you are done. corresponding to your Oath. This describes the work of the Childe of Geburah which is to develop a Briatic (and. Facing West. once each Solar Cycle during this period. to some extent. as transformations occur. and begin your work on the Solar Plane and the Heavenly Hexagram as a Childe of Geburah. close as appropriate. the Heavenly Hexagram is partly Briatic and partly Yitziratic. This will assist the initiation process. and to be granted Fire and Sword so that you may evolve ever so rightly in the Light. 67 . Proceed as guided by your Angel.

as a Childe of Tiphareth. as described by the equation 5 = 6. once the Childe has resolved to do only True Will. The Yitziratic Hexagrams are not used on the Solar Plane. you also embody the Heavenly Hexagram (from which you project the Star Ruby). and things will ease as the Childe discovers the Power of Love through the Angel. The Flaming Sword is granted and cultivated during this period to assist in this Great Work. Yesod and Malkuth) are NOT represented on the Solar Plane. you embodied the Yitziratic Hexagram (the 6). acknowledges that the Angel is the source of all thoughts. On the Solar Plane. You will also learn how to project the Star Ruby on an initiated basis. In this regard. the Initiate simply focuses the Eye and asserts the Will to direct the Powers of the Mind. This will likely not be an easy period in the Childe’s life. You may prepare a Phoenix Wand if you are so inclined. The work is performed. and compare this to the symbolism of the Lotus Wand. However. Hence. and the Elemental Childe (the 5) and the Angel (the 6) became one. and realizes the work is to keep the Eye properly focused and the Pentagram aright at all times. charged with the Fire of Geburah. it is generally recommended that you always end your workings in the Sign of Silence. As a Childe of Geburah. This assists in absorbing the energies and then disbursing them back into the Universe as appropriate. you will explore and gain experience with the Higher Powers of the Mind. they are left behind.Note how the Sephiroth below Tiphareth (Netzach. and then concluded by simply by focusing the Powers of the Mind to return the Sphere to “normal operating conditions” on the Assiatic/Material Plane. it is recommended that you work with the Stars and Symbols given in the attached Table for Mars. As a Childe of Geburah. (They correspond to the Lower Astral and the Hexagram of that Plane. Learning from the symbolism is what is important. be thou the Phoenix! There is no need to banish on the Solar Plane. As a Childe of Geburah. and permit the Childe to truly realize the equation of 6 = 5. These are symbolized by the Planetary correspondences of the Heavenly Hexagram. The work of the Childe of Geburah will likely involve many great ordeals. 68 . you will now do so from a higher perspective. The reason for this is that the aspirant has now transcended these aspects of “human” being and become something more than “human”. orchestrated by the Angel and the Holy One to rid the Childe of any qliphotic parts.) Note that. Hod. In this regard. the illusions of personal separateness will be absorbed into the Light. However. The Yitziratic Hexagrams are generally used only in work below the Solar Plane (for instance in performing Path workings on the Yitziratic Tree of Life). it is recommended that the Childe of Geburah study the symbolism of the Phoenix Wand. As a Childe of Geburah. but this is not a requirement for advancement. the Initiate grasps the appropriate band of the Phoenix Wand and focuses the Eyes of the Phoenix to make a projection. Therefore. and work to complete the equation of 6 = 5 from this higher perspective. words and deeds.

Consider in this regard. During the course of the work of the Childe of Chesed.There is no set period of time to perform and accomplish the work of the Childe of Geburah. As the work and initiation progresses. and then as the Virgin Daughter. the Sun rises in the east and moves to the zenith of the Sphere (high noon). Amen!!! Oath of the Childe of Chesed If the work of the Childe of Geburah can be described as Magickal in nature. and become a Mighty Warrior in this New Aeon. They show the process. with Love under Will. there generally would be no rite of initiation as a Childe of Chesed. through the Power of Love. As a Childe of Chesed. As a Childe of Tiphareth. which marks the point when the aspirant becomes a Childe of Tiphareth. Puella is the first Magickal Sign of the Babe of the Abyss.the Virgin Daughter. May you Go forth with Fire and Sword to perform and accomplish the Great Work of the Childe of Geburah. And may you further evolve as a Childe of Chesed. The work and initiation continues and the Sun moves from the west to the nadir of the Sphere (symbolized by the Sun at Midnight). Accordingly. the Sun moves from the zenith of the Sphere and sets in the west. which shows the evolution of the Mighty King or Queen. As a result. and Babalon to Silence the Waters to all but Her Desire (which is His Will) and. Jupiter takes its rightful position on the top point of the Heavenly Hexagram and Venus assumes its position at Chesed on the Heavenly Hexagram. Force and Vigor in the work. you evolve as a Mighty Warrior with Fire and Sword by doing only True Will. Vir – the Mighty King. Rather. your work is to evolve as a Mighty King or Queen. Thoth for Wisdom in fulfilling the Word of Ra. the Sun moves from the nadir of the Sphere to the place of the Rising Sun in the East. it is recommended that the Childe of Geburah regularly invoke: RaHoor-Khuit for Strength. as the Mighty King or Queen evolves. Adepthood ripens into perfection through these stages of evolution. for the Power to Love. So much is shown to us every day. However. you would simply take the Oath of the Childe of Chesed when you are guided to do so by your Angel and commence the work. as the Childe is resurrected from occult Death and rises to Divine Life. The Magickal Sign of Vir is traditionally associated with the work of the Childe of Chesed. to produce the Virgin Daughter. the work of the Childe of Chesed can rightly be described as Mystickal in nature. evolves into Puella . which marks the point when the aspirant becomes a Childe of Chesed. and to refine and hone the lower powers and skills. which marks the point when the aspirant becomes a Childe of Geburah. the progression of the Magickal Signs traditionally associated with these aspects of the work. eventually. 69 . You are encouraged to take the Oath of the Childe of Chesed when you are so guided by your Angel. there will be no unfinished business by the time Adepthood comes to an end. you evolve as a Majestic King or Queen by attaining conscious Unity with your Holy Guardian Angel. Thus. As a Childe of Geburah. As you work through the First Order. Any work you did not complete as a Childe of Geburah will be addressed as a Childe of Chesed. If you are so inclined. Consider the Stations of the Sun in connection with this evolutionary process. The work of the Childe of Chesed is to lustrate the lower aspects of the Childe’s own being.

It is also recommended that you prepare a Jupiter Talisman when you are guided to do so. The work of the Childe of Chesed may take years or even lifetimes to accomplish. This will assist the initiation process. These are used to overcome any remaining illusions of personal separateness as Adepthood ripens into perfection and the Virgin Daughter is produced. 70 . however. You also learn to project the Star Sapphire on an initiated basis. it is recommended that you take the Oaths of the Paths of Kaph. During your work as a Childe of Chesed. and the Childe becomes a Childe of Binah. the Childe will realize the equation of 7 = 4 and the Unity of All. (Connect the Circle to this Cross. The initiation process commences upon taking the Oath of the Childe of Chesed and continues every day until the work is accomplished. charged with the Fire of Chesed. What is given above will suffice with the guidance of your Angel. the Virgin Daughter will be produced. however. and Adepthood will end as the Childe rises to become a part of the Body of God. Other papers issued by the Sanctuary and included in this book address the Holy Work which follows. In connection with this. Yod and Teth. the Love of the Supernals will wash the Childe. Your Angel will. and that the Power of Love is granted to the Childe of Chesed. you work with the Stars and Symbols given in the attached Table for “Jupiter”. This is accomplished through the Power of Love and involves the attainment of the Power of Love. Nothing more needs to be said about the Great Work of the Childe of Chesed at this time. which also gives the image of the Cross. As a Childe of Chesed. with nothing else around. which will serve as a constant aid and symbol of your devotion to this stage of the Work. the Childe of Chesed is to Love All under Will at this stage of evolution in accord with the Childe’s Oath. the Yitziratic aspects of the Childe “fall away” and are left behind. guide as to these matters. The image is of the Adept standing pure and chaste all alone before the Supernal Parents and the Crown. the Childe is lifted by the Hand of God across the Abyss and into the Womb of the Goddess. and spend at least a few Solar Cycles subject to each Oath. recall the image given above of the Adept standing pure and chaste before the Supernal Parents and the Crown. However.) It is said that Fire and Sword are granted to the Childe of Geburah. Thus.As lustration progresses. you do so from the higher perspective described above. (Additional Commentary: Your being. When the Childe no longer identifies with the lower aspects of the Childe’s own being. The Sphere thus unformulates on the Heavenly Hexagram and reformulates in the Supernal Triangle. the Balances will be attained. One of the last aspects of human being which the Childe of Chesed will transcend is human love for Divine Love.) As the Childe learns to constantly focus the Eye on the Su pernal Holiness which is the Source of All. is the true Jupiter Talisman being made pure by this Work. or periods of break. There is no period of initiation per se. The initiation process is continual and spans the entire period of the aspirant’s work as a Childe of Chesed.

The Pentagram Formulae for the Dominis Liminis will assist you in attaining this at the appropriate stage of the work. 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. [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). which you have learned in your prior work.) 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. Initiation into Spirit must precede this Sephirotic aspect. which is the abode of the Holy Guardian Angel. As a Dominis Liminis. The second step is to Spiritualize the elements within your Sphere. equilibrate and inform the elements. which is to consciously link the source of the Childe’s aspiration to the Macrocosm. 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. The Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel is the Sephirotic aspect. it is recommended that you look up the Pillars of the Great Tree and down the Pillars of the embodied Little Tree. You will attain a Macrocosmic view of things.] The floor of your Sphere is lifting you up the Tree of Life. Spirit is the “elemental” aspect of the work. This assists in illustrating through imagery an aspect of the work of the Dominis Liminis. 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. This is of a general nature on the Spiritual or Macrocosmic Plane. It is not Sephira specific. and move through them.

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

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

Rites to Purify and Consecrate your Magickal Weapons The approach of the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation is to provide Formulae for Initiation. The Childe truly becomes a Soldier of the Great Work.

This is done by placing the elements of the Childe’s Sphere under the Presidency of the Name (YHVH) by formulating the Zodiacal Belt about the Sphere and the four Pillars of the Temple (representing the Father.THE MAGICKAL SIGNS OF THE ADEPTI (Including those of the Virgin Daughter) Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe Copyright © 2009 Sanctuary of Thoth.

The Magickal Signs of the Adepti are described in this paper. by moving the Childe to the center of the Yitziratic Hexagram which is formulated on the floor of the Childe’s Sphere. This is done standing. They are most typically made in the Center of the Sphere after performing a Yitziratic Hexagram Ritual of the Sun (traditional or unicursal hexagrams may be used in a ritual of this nature) while facing east. 31/31 31 Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. and are a means for Invoking the Holy Guardian Angel in the consciousness of the Childe. the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot.

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.

This all occurs by an Act of Love in the Supernal Realm. and so the Word is heard. The Elements are the manifest powers of the All-Father. The Woman is no longer pregnant. Love tempers Will. The Son is the Redeemer. Her nature is Love. They have the Spirit and Soul of Nature.is pregnant. They have Life as the Chia (the Life Force) runs through their bodies. The Woman is the Love. The Son appears as the first Magickal Childe of the Man and the Woman. Nature is shown through the Circle and the Cross. and controls the manifestation of all below Tiphareth. The Universe is of Her. which is the Gate of Heaven. The Children have Liberty in the genesis of ideas.

we see a proof of the phrase “Love is the Law. We have the Chia of Chokmah. carryout and manifest the Word of God. Its counterpart on the Male Side of the Tree is the Path of Heh attributed to Atu XVII – The Star. Amen. Although there is no given Path on the Tree of Life from Binah to Chesed. which is the Feminine Soul of Nature. This is the sole task of the Childe – to bear the Holy Grail – to receive. When we think of action on the Male Side of the Tree. the Childe brings the Word into manifestation. who is the Microprosopus. He manifests Them. Here. which is the Spirit of All and the Male Creative Life Force.

The parts of the Soul are now to be distinguished. this is to be cast out. The Son has been created. we see such action on the Path of Zain. This Atu is of great importance. which begins on the Female Side of the Tree and leads from Binah to Tiphareth. O’ Beautiful Childe. Amen. which further defines the nature of the Law of Thelema The current received by Chesed is sent forth to Geburah. which commenced in the Supernal Realm. There is no separation between God and man. which is the Soul of All. but there is not. The Journey now continues wholly below the Supernal Realm. which is the last Path on the Journey originating in the Supernal Realm. This is the Charioteer. The Fire of the Holy One is expressed. 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. The Chia is received by the Neschamah. It precedes the Mars Force of Geburah and is informing of the Law established in Chesed. Pure and Perfect. Atu VII is attributed to the Path of Cheth. which lies between Chesed and Geburah. We have the Yechidah of the Crown.

The Childe’s actions manifest God’s Will. it flows continuously for Chesed is a manifestation of that which preceded in the Womb of the AllMother. Babalon the Beautiful nourishes Her Lion-Childe with the Serpent Power. this Atu is subject to such varied interpretations depending on the perspective from which it is viewed. there is in the same flash counterbalancing action on the Female Side of the Tree. we stay focused on Spirit’s Journey down the Tree. Rather. Love under Will”. Each Microcosm is unique but an indivisible part of the Macrocosm. The process of creation continues. The Microcosm is complete. words and deeds. it shows the Influence of the Supernals on all motion in the Universe. It is the “Fire 195 . The Journey now moves into the Yitziratic Realm. which bring the Word into manifestation.who is of His Father and Mother. symbolized by the four Pillars of the Chariot.

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. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Yod and the Zodiacal Sign of Virgo. His Sword flames with the Fire of his God. 196 . It is also Solar in nature. and Chesed is the source of the Serpent Power of Atu XI which precedes the Mars Force. Right nourishment. He dispenses with terrestrial matters in accord with God’s Will. and is a source of Light and Love to others. Earthly man is an extension of this. However. He is a Chosen Initiate. And so does the Hermit assist in healing the Womb of the Goddess and reversing the Curse of the Fall of Man. who is the Heavenly Man. Jupiter is attributed to Kether on the Heavenly Hexagram. created from God and remaining a part of God. which wields the current of the Flaming Sword. while the Hebrew letter Kaph is a symbol of the Palm or closed Hand of God and the use of power. Amen. creates earthly man in His Image. Atu X – Fortune (Wheel of Fortune). We are reminded by the number of the Atu that Spirit is the basis of all manifestation. and the redemption of the human race. Further. To the Initiate (symbolized by the Sworded Sphinx). These correspondences speak to the creation and movement of earthly man in Spirit’s Journey. the Pentagram is set aright. This occurs when the Eye of the Childe is focused on the Love of the Goddess which sets the Pentagram aright within the Childe. as we have already seen in the Journey. A Holy State of Union always exists. Yod is the first letter of the Tetragrammaton. The Fire of Yod Tetragrammaton descends from the Elohim. Amen. Love. the Law below the Supernal Realm is established in Chesed (in part by the Word of the Hierophant). The number 11 signifies magickal power.

Liberty and Life of the Crown. You know. It nourishes the Lion-Childe with the Light. It is said that the Wheel turns both ways. This existence of the Nephesch is acknowledged in these statements. This is another demonstration that Love is the Law. Atu IX – The Hermit. However. and is turned by the Hand of God.Informing”. As we have seen. This Atu is the eleventh of the Atu. 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. The Word carries with it the Serpent Power. there is no luck or accidental circumstance. The Forces of the Universe are asserted as necessary in the administration of matters throughout the Planes. and so he is moved harmoniously in accord with the Law. Motion will then be set in accord with the Law. And so does the Hermit assist in the Great Work of a new creation. the Crown is worn and the Word may be spoken. who transmit their Influence to illumine the SixFold Star and move earthly man. whose Malkuth contains all worlds below and is the connecting link to the Malkuth of the 30 th Aire). This correspondence follows through to the Yitziratic Hexagram. The Wheel of Fortune exists in the Womb of the Goddess. The Hermit is one who has been made aware of his starry heritage. The Serpent Power is used by Spirit to move all within the Universe below to manifest the Word. The Serpent Power is the purest energy expressed below the Supernal Realm. as shown by this Atu’s attribution to the Zodiacal Sign of Leo. which forms a basis of all motion. selection and digestion are all suggested. He has been shown how to rightly focus the Eye and set the Pentagram aright. It is also to be observed that Jupiter is attributed to Chesed. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Kaph and the Planet Jupiter. This Atu is a glyph of the assertion of magickal power below the Supernal Realm in the administration of the Law. This may appear to manifest as luck. the Macroprosopus produces from Itself the Microprosopus which is a unique yet indivisible part of Itself. it is of higher nature than that expressed by Tiphareth. all motion within the Universe is perfectly in accord with the Law. We are so moved.

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

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.

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

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

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

208

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

209

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

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

As the Sphere is organized according to the formula of the Plane. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Yesod. which is found earlier in this book. His True Nature has now been revealed. You simply need to focus the Eye to see it. Appeal to Her through your heart. The Wand of God progressively manifests within the vessel of the Childe as the Sphere is organized according to the formula of each Plane. The Love of the Goddess surrounds you. The voices scream that the Childe only has to rightly focus the Eye to behold first the Light and then the Holy Darkness which is veiled by the Light. once the opportunities are presented. (The Wand of Nuit is described in “Additional Commentary” added at the end of the paper entitled “The Sword and The Caduceus”. If you seek to move rightly. which turns the Eye down. It is She who is truly revealed in the First Aire as Horus. first as applied to you and then to assist others in doing so. Ra-Hoor-Khuit is produced in Their Union.

Enough cannot be said about the importance of Love in this World and in the Initiation process. look outwards. Love is found within. we have everything.

However. whose thoughts and emotions are revealing the Son who is the Holy Guardian Angel and the issue of the Woman. and is not the Goddess Love?! Love is Venus. and in no way want to deny you the pleasures of Earth. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Hod. 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. Heed Her call. The lesson is a simple one. We may look for arrows in the quiver and arm the bow. See through the Eye of God. there is the matter of the Great Curse. Love. We have forgotten what we are. This is the sole choice of the Childe. We simply choose Love or we do not. The Eye is on the Woman in the form of the Daughter. as the Childe becomes confounded by sensual desire. However. However. When we have Love. illusion. and Love is the end. Divine Love abides in your Soul. The Love of God in the Highest abides within you. We ascend the Planes and the Aires by rightly focusing the Eye on Love. and to attain through Love. When we don’t seem to. Love is the focus of the Work. The lesson of Love is to Love. who is a lower aspect of Nuit but a separate Being who manifests Nuit Supernally. Love. but an Arrow of True Will is shot only by God’s Hand into and out of Love. and wash it with Love so it may be tamed and placed in right service. which must be overcome and reversed Childe by Childe to redeem all of mankind. This Work is accomplished by Art. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Yesod. It is the fundamental force driving everything. Let Love and Will balance throughout the Planes. to evolve as a Lion-Childe. Love. Amen The 24th Aire (NIA). The Will then may be concentrated and directed to its end. Love is the beginning. which is never ending. Love the animal within you. as Hod and Netzach are balanced and the Water is separated from the Fire. All is accomplished by Love. Love washes and restores calm and peace. This Aire encompasses the Spheres numbered 1. where we have come from. Love All as God for All is of God. and so the Great Order of the Universe is ever changing in a state of perfect equilibrium. and who we serve. When the Eye is rightly focused. Initiation is the theme. disharmony and confusion prevail. All may be enjoyed while keeping the Eye rightly focused. like an Arrow shot by a skilled Archer. Crowned and Conquering going forth performing God’s Great Work in ever increasing harmony with the forces of the Universe. It reveals the Woman of Yesod in the most exalted sense. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. This equilibrium derives from Love. Yet how few take the time to investigate the matter. Amen. we regain our Starry heritage. It tempers the Fire of Will. The Aires are aspects of the Goddess. and calls to you to experience the energized ecstatic loving embrace of the Goddess. When the Eye is not rightly focused. As we speak of the Woman in manifestation. She appears upon High and upon low. when tempering is appropriate. the Childe is fed by Her in ways which nurture the Childe along the Chosen Way. and seek the Royal Path of Initiation. The Gods live through you. We believe ourselves to be the Archer shooting the Arrows of our Will. we speak of Babalon the Beautiful. to assert the animal will to focus the Eye. we are not. She redeems Her wicked Children by turning their Eye to Her. It is always with you.

Even the darkness teaches through pain and suffering. Equilibration opens the Eye to the energies. no soaring in the Womb of the Goddess. 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. transcend human sorrow and find True Life in the Love and Light of God. Sacrifice them to the Infernal Gods. However. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. which veil the Spiritual Being indwelling man. The Sphere evolves from this process so it may be progressively identified with the Holy One and the Holy None (the Qabalistic Zero). There is more to this life than the path of pleasure. thereby. Amen. equilibrated and experienced with each step. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. When we invoke. Free your self by turning your Eye to God and ask for liberation on the Royal Path of Initiation. however. Amen. You pick which aspect teaches you. For what abides within is of such pure and perfect beauty that any words would taint. There is no-thing to give up and every-thing to gain. We behold God in man. not on gain but on duty and. It is all about the focus of the Eye. Ignorance is abounding among man. yet an indivisible part of the Whole. Yet God is here now. There comes a time when the path of pleasure ends and the Path of Divine Joy begins. We look from Earth to the Gods in Heaven. personal will or personal action. and assists us in attaining a more Universal perspective. we call energies or forces into the Sphere. Proceed with courage into the dark so that you may find the Light and the Love which manifests IT. Initiation involves a stripping away of the layers of the self to arrive at the True Self. 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. The work begins with you who you perceive as separate from the rest of the Universe. You are called to duty now. and may enjoy the pleasures of Heaven and Earth in the course of your service.The 23rd Aire (TOR). to Venus and to the Sun. When we equilibrate. The 22nd Aire (LIN). the duty will be rightly performed glorifying God. equilibrate. The senses are the chains to the physical world. gather your resources and undertake the Holy Work with courage. so they may be burnt and no more. Nuit embraces that.

God and the Devil are One. yet before us everywhere is God. which is your Secret Center. Focus. evolve. Your Life is God’s Breath. Are not the lessons always the same?! Invoke. You shine. The path of pleasure which man treads provides short-term gratification but is unrewarding or unsatisfying over the long-term. We adore Thee in Holy Silence. equilibrate. and placing your self in God’s service. We all have our unique course of evolution as a Star. Tread now the Path of Divine Joy. Your Light is God’s Light. equilibrate. This is the Mystery of the Childe of Nuit most exalted. Invoke. Invoke. There will be obstacles and ordeals. Being is found in Not-Being. transcend the physical and notions of personal separateness and find Unity in God. as the Childe climbs the Tree of Life seeking the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. Dark may God appear. We look and there appears to be No-God. we balance and assimilate. evolve. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Hod. and ignorance is the darkness which veils the Light and Her Holiness. as the Curse of the Fall of Man has confounded man by his senses.only lessons. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Hod. which is foreshadowed by the Mystery of the Childe of Kether who finds the True Self in Selflessness. unique. which involves an absorption and integration of the energies into the Sphere. Is not all of life a lesson in pain and suffering?! Lift off the bonds of darkness. but the Light is not your own. to the Moon. Crushed we are by the weight of this World.

The 20th Aire (KHR). Crowned with a Diadem of Stars. which are the Waters of Creation. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Netzach. 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. and we behold them as such. every thought. As we travel through the Aires. This is seen in all work below. She moves the axle which stirs the energies and causes the revolution. All of evolution is change. She is the Aires. here in the form of human love. 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. Is She not Nuit as Venus?! Is She not Nuit moving the Childe?! Is She not the Childe?! The Gunas revolve. We behold God upon high nurturing all below with the Holy Water. and at the same time She appears as the Holy Guardian Angel. Change is the basis of stability. The Love washes. Her Essence abides in them. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Netzach. Love nurtures as Venus reappears.The 21st Aire (ASP). Additional Commentary: There is great difficulty in communicating an account of the Aires for different messages could be communicated based on level of Initiation. word and deed must be placed in service. Love All. the Wheel turns the Angels’ cry!!! They turn at Her Hand. Balance. She abides in All. Great power and great beauty is seen in Her. friends and even casual acquaintances. Amen. All change is at Her Hand. Initiation involves coming to know and experience different aspects of the Universe through the Holy 239 . Your Magick is practiced in all aspects of how you live your life. if you allow it to be. The animal will is seen only as an extension of God’s will. Such is the Mystery of the Childe of Chokmah. The Universe responds to Her Word. 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. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. Therefore. Every thing you do. It is the Nature of the Female about the Male which is to be communicated in this paper. and through the symbols you are given – your family. which is governed by IT. every task you perform. There could be many accounts of each Aire. Initiates will then derive their own meanings from the accounts in the context of their own initiations. You then become a Source of Light and Love to the Universe. but they are positive manifestations in the Aires. I behold Thy Face. all of which could be accurate. Venus appears as the King’s Daughter. As She speaks. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. To Love God is a means of serving God. to heighten awareness as to the Nature of the Aires. 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. Human love may thereby be transformed into a form of bhakti or practice of Loving God who is seen in all. She bears the Scepter showing She has the Power of the King. The Sephiroth also have male and female characteristics. The Wisdom and Love of God will be your guide. fostering Justice. She appears all at once as Father. Enlighten us through Love. All of Initiation involves change. which revolves. Harmony and Love and establishing the Law. and allows the Love and Light of God to shine through you and help all those around you. She appears to be manifesting the Daughter in Malkuth. 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. spiral energies issue forth from Her mouth. Mother and Son manifesting the Daughter. and assist in the healing of the human race. moving what it is to be moved. May the Light of the Divine Wisdom transform and heal us. and Her Name is Love. and IT beams with warmth and Love. The Aires are the Feminine aspects surrounding the Male manifestations of the Sephiroth.

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

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

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

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

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