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!

All rights reserved. Although suffering is a fact of human life. that mental training is required to attain right views. The Buddhist’s say. It is also shown by Yoga Science. The teachings of Buddhism may be briefly summarized to assist in recognizing the nature of suffering. This is done by the “destruction of ignorance” and the “acquisition of right views” in Buddhist terminology. To begin. By seeing the cause of suffering. Right views arise from realizing that (1) there is an impermanence of all physical and other aggregates (the “animal” is doomed to death). Suffering is caused by desire to move towards things which attract and away from things which repulse. May there be an end to suffering for all the Children of Earth. Air and Earth. in the course of Initiation into the Sephiroth and the Paths. (2) suffering is inherent in all aggregates (they dissolve) and (3) there is an absence of ego in all aggregates. we can bring an end to suffering as merely humans. 15 . This is the Nature of the Work encouraged through the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation. which also involves the awakening of the Chakras. the causes of suffering. The formula of the Pentagram must be completed at each Step on the Royal Path of Initiation. 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).AN END TO SUFFERING (Insights from Buddhism) Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe Copyright © 2008 Sanctuary of Thoth. How you attend to the details. as attractions or repulsions. By attaining to the Higher Planes and exalting your consciousness. and the way to end suffering by perfect attention and meditation. This is through the teachings of the Sanctuary. This same work is accomplished through the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation. Water. break the “cycle” of reincarnation (so to speak) and recognize the True Nature of your Being. placing desire in proper perspective and tempering our actions according. We discover the nature of our suffering. The Way is being shown. The Pentagram teaches that these are presided over by Spirit. 31/31 31 Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. which correspond with lower expressions of the elements of Fire. suffering ceases to exist on the Higher Planes. in simplest terms. you may bring an end to suffering in your life as you know it. suffering appears in two forms. so the elements of the Childe are consecrated to that Step and prepared for the next Step.

The Childe must traverse the Path of Daleth to attain to Chokmah. However. and only the Spiritual Being abides and moves. When you discover your True Self and your True Will. Thus does the Vessel attain Perfect Transparency for the Light of Love of the Chalice to Shine through. as the Virgin Daughter is redeemed and enters Briah. 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). Further. this realization is not perfectly assimilated at this Stage of Evolution. Only you can do your Work. and find purpose and meaning to our lives in all that we do. a ripening and perfecting of Adepthood. It is never too late. Put an end to your suffering. Every breath is an opportunity. your effort is required. Most established religions have stopped short of what is necessary to bring their devotees to the Supreme realization and True Goal of man. all Sorrow is seen as Pure Joy. the purpose for it is seen and beheld as necessary in the Great Work. You can do it! However. and human suffering is placed in proper perspective and seen for what it is. Amen. However. you will discover the absence of an ego in all aggregates. Take action to heal yourself and allow your-self to be Healed. and truly behold the Glory of God. without exception. In the course of this work. As a result. In the course of this Work. Perspective from the Higher Plane of Briah is attained. There are still transformations which must occur. the Virgin Daughter Becomes the Mother as explained in other papers issued by the Sanctuary. to produce the Virgin Daughter. Ultimately. The Childe has not completed the Return Journey up the Tree of Life. The “human being” is Silenced. you will come to realize the Nature of your True Self and discover your True Will.The Sanctuary’s System of Initiation also teaches how to consecrate your self to the Divinity within at each Step along the Royal Way. When this occurs. 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. The Highest of Initiations may be attained by All. Let no one say otherwise. even the Childe of Kether. and may you experience Heaven on Earth. It is time for man to make further progress in this regard. in effect. Pain and suffering occur at the junction of Briah and Yitzirah. who has ceased Becoming and entered into Being. Reverse the Curse which has been placed upon you arising from the Fall of Man. Even a Childe of Binah is still on the Way of Return. which is then redeemed and set upon the Throne of the Great Mother in Binah. This is done initially using the Yitziratic Hexagram. The Sanctuary’s System of Initiation systematically takes you through every step to bring you there. The Work of the Second Order is. This is not to say that the Childe no longer suffers the same pain of aging or injury just like any other human. 16 . The Childe perceives Heaven on Earth. we behold the Nature of All things (attain “right views”).

Sanctuary of Thoth. The “Traditional” and “Thelemic” formulae or approach to organizing a Pentagram Ritual are discussed below. the Sphere becomes organized from an elemental perspective on an initiated basis. The Childe of Netzach works with the element of Fire and the Elemental Fire Pentagram.

Pentagram Formula is learned by the Childe of Earth. you may find that the Traditional formula serves you better in working directly with the elements (or an element). This evolves as higher initiation occurs. as a more modern approach which is “user friendly” by all Children of the Light. You are encouraged to experiment with both formulae. so you may purify and consecrate them to the Great Work.

The Magickal Signs of the First Order. and are a means for Invoking the Holy Guardian Angel in the consciousness of the Childe. by moving the Childe to the center of the Yitziratic Hexagram which is formulated on the floor of the Childe’s Sphere. The Magickal Signs of the Adepti are described in this paper. The Magickal Signs of the Childe of Tiphareth These are the LVX Signs. including those related to the Virgin Daughter.

This is done standing. say “The Sign of Orus”. which assist the Childe of Tiphareth in formulating the Zodiacal belt about the Sphere (with Aries in the east) by revolving the Childe’s consciousness about the Sphere in the order of the Zodiac. which is Tiphareth on the Tree of Life.

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.

The Creative Will and the Creative Imagination unite out of Love to create their Magickal Children and all things in Nature. The Path of Heh. She has born a Childe. These are the Four Glories of Thelema which emanate from the Crown. Her substance is the Salt of all manifestation. She is Love. This all occurs by an Act of Love in the Supernal Realm.

Rather. which is the last Path on the Journey originating in the Supernal Realm. Although the Magician of Atu I (who is also the Mercury of Gemini attributed to Atu VI) continues to perpetuate the Grand Illusion of the Abyss. There is no separation between God and man. This is the sole task of the Childe – to bear the Holy Grail – to receive. which lies between Chesed and Geburah. is shown to be under the presidency of the Name (YHVH). carryout and manifest the Word of God. The Childe’s actions manifest God’s Will. The Fire of the Holy One is expressed. adorations unto Thee! Go forth to the Glory of the Holy Names of God. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Teth. O’ Beautiful Childe. and embodies God’s Hands to work on the lower planes. 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. we see such action on the Path of Zain. We have the Chia of Chokmah. By its position. The Charioteer is God manifesting to carry the Word into the lower planes. The Charioteer wears the Crown of God. We have the Yechidah of the Crown.

When we think of action on the Male Side of the Tree. It is the “Fire 195 . The Microprosopus is a manifestation of God.

Mental offspring are produced and sent forth. which transmits the Word to the Ruach. it flows continuously for Chesed is a manifestation of that which preceded in the Womb of the AllMother. It precedes the Mars Force of Geburah and is informing of the Law established in Chesed. which commenced in the Supernal Realm. Atu XI – Lust (Strength). Babalon the Beautiful nourishes Her Lion-Childe with the Serpent Power. Atu VII is attributed to the Path of Cheth. Each Microcosm is unique but an indivisible part of the Macrocosm. Although there is no given Path on the Tree of Life from Binah to Chesed. Atu VII – The Chariot. which is the Spirit of All and the Male Creative Life Force. The Journey now continues wholly below the Supernal Realm.who is of His Father and Mother. which further defines the nature of the Law of Thelema The current received by Chesed is sent forth to Geburah. this is to be cast out. Atu VI – The Lovers. We have the Neschamah of Binah. These form a basis for all of the Childe’s thoughts. Perhaps. The Ruach and the Nephesch are distinguished from what has preceded in the formulation of the Microcosm. which begins on the Female Side of the Tree and leads from Binah to Tiphareth. this Atu is subject to such varied interpretations depending on the perspective from which it is viewed. Amen. The Yechidah moves. we see a proof of the phrase “Love is the Law. symbolized by the four Pillars of the Chariot.

The Word carries with it the Serpent Power. 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.

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

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

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

198

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

199

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

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

THE FACE OF SPIRIT
(Given in the context of the Thelemic Pantheon)

Copyright © 2008 Sanctuary of Thoth. All rights reserved.

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

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.

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.

If you seek to move rightly. whose image is of the Six-Fold Star.

The 26th Aire (DES). as the perspective from Yesod is exalted. She is in your Soul. Reference is made to Ra-Hoor-Khuit. Amen. The Love and Light of Nuit’s Chalice is the Love and Light of the Crowned Childe. The Wand of God progressively manifests within the vessel of the Childe as the Sphere is organized according to the formula of each Plane. This Aire surrounds the Spheres numbered 4. It is Nuit who is the True Hierophant of this New Aeon. to Heal Her Children. This requires right balance of the Sphere in all directions. By doing so. She formulates and moves Hadit.

In this way. All else follows from there. When we don’t seem to. to evolve as a Lion-Childe. We simply need to remember. The Aires are aspects of the Goddess. All may be enjoyed while keeping the Eye rightly focused. Every moment is an opportunity to express the Love which is in you. there is the matter of the Great Curse. Love the animal within you. Love is the beginning. This Aire encompasses the Spheres numbered 1. Love sweetens the animal soul and focuses and concentrates the animal will. Love is the focus of the Work. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Hod. the Childe is fed by Her in ways which nurture the Childe along the Chosen Way. where we have come from. as the Childe becomes confounded by sensual desire. It reveals the Woman of Yesod in the most exalted sense. and who we serve. The Gods live through you. She appears upon High and upon low. and Love is the end. who is a lower aspect of Nuit but a separate Being who manifests Nuit Supernally. Amen. All is accomplished by Love. and in no way want to deny you the pleasures of Earth. like an Arrow shot by a skilled Archer. We ascend the Planes and the Aires by rightly focusing the Eye on Love. It is all so simple and so beautiful. Yet how few take the time to investigate the matter. It is always with you. we have everything. and seek the Royal Path of Initiation. It tempers the Fire of Will. The lesson of Love is to Love. We have forgotten what we are. Crowned and Conquering going forth performing God’s Great Work in ever increasing harmony with the forces of the Universe. when tempering is appropriate. and calls to you to experience the energized ecstatic loving embrace of the Goddess. This equilibrium derives from Love. 237 . The Eye is on the Woman in the form of the Daughter. Divine Love abides in your Soul. Love. Heed Her call. However. It is the fundamental force driving everything. which is never ending. 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. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Yesod. The Love of God in the Highest abides within you. and something we all seem to know. When the Eye is rightly focused. and is not the Goddess Love?! Love is Venus. Let Love and Will balance throughout the Planes. which must be overcome and reversed Childe by Childe to redeem all of mankind. As we speak of the Woman in manifestation. as Hod and Netzach are balanced and the Water is separated from the Fire. When the Eye is not rightly focused. Love. The lesson is a simple one. whose thoughts and emotions are revealing the Son who is the Holy Guardian Angel and the issue of the Woman. and so the Great Order of the Universe is ever changing in a state of perfect equilibrium. Love is found within. We may look for arrows in the quiver and arm the bow. She redeems Her wicked Children by turning their Eye to Her. However. and to attain through Love.The 25th Aire (UTI). This Work is accomplished by Art. disharmony and confusion prevail. Only by right focus of the Eye on Divine Love is redemption possible. Initiation is the theme. We believe ourselves to be the Archer shooting the Arrows of our Will. in doing so. See through the Eye of God. When we have Love. illusion. Love All as God for All is of God. We simply choose Love or we do not. Will is Mercury. The Will then may be concentrated and directed to its end. look outwards. we speak of Babalon the Beautiful. Love washes and restores calm and peace. and what is attained in the Work. and is attained in Initiation by Loving. we are not. However. This is the sole choice of the Childe. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. Amen The 24th Aire (NIA). we regain our Starry heritage. Enough cannot be said about the importance of Love in this World and in the Initiation process. The Goddess calls to you now. to assert the animal will to focus the Eye.

There is more to this life than the path of pleasure. When we equilibrate. Proceed with courage into the dark so that you may find the Light and the Love which manifests IT. This is the Mystery of the Childe of Nuit most exalted. to Mercury. which is your Secret Center. we balance and assimilate. 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. Ignorance is abounding among man. no soaring in the Womb of the Goddess. yet an indivisible part of the Whole. We adore Thee in Holy Silence. Your Light is God’s Light. however. For what abides within is of such pure and perfect beauty that any words would taint. However. and assists us in attaining a more Universal perspective. Use all that you have experienced. God and the Devil are One. not on gain but on duty and. as the Childe climbs the Tree of Life seeking the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. Is not all of life a lesson in pain and suffering?! Lift off the bonds of darkness. personal will or personal action. thereby. Equilibration opens the Eye to the energies. 238 . We look and there appears to be No-God. which is foreshadowed by the Mystery of the Childe of Kether who finds the True Self in Selflessness. You are a Star. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. we call energies or forces into the Sphere. Things must be set right. Tread now the Path of Divine Joy. which are engines of truth and beauty and turn the Eye to God. Amen. unique. evolve. to Venus and to the Sun. There comes a time when the path of pleasure ends and the Path of Divine Joy begins. the duty will be rightly performed glorifying God. Initiation involves a stripping away of the layers of the self to arrive at the True Self. and ignorance is the darkness which veils the Light and Her Holiness. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Hod.The 23rd Aire (TOR). and may enjoy the pleasures of Heaven and Earth in the course of your service. Your Life is God’s Breath. which veil the Spiritual Being indwelling man. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. equilibrate. gather your resources and undertake the Holy Work with courage. The Sphere evolves from this process so it may be progressively identified with the Holy One and the Holy None (the Qabalistic Zero). We behold God in man. There are no mistakes . equilibrate. evolve. Invoke. evolve. You shine. Dark may God appear. There is no-thing to give up and every-thing to gain. The senses are the chains to the physical world. Even the darkness teaches through pain and suffering. which involves an absorption and integration of the energies into the Sphere. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Hod. We all have our unique course of evolution as a Star. Crushed we are by the weight of this World. Invoke often. equilibrated and experienced with each step. When we invoke. equilibrate. and placing your self in God’s service. The 22nd Aire (LIN). Amen. It is all about the focus of the Eye. as the Curse of the Fall of Man has confounded man by his senses. but the Light is not your own. Invoke. There will be obstacles and ordeals. Free your self by turning your Eye to God and ask for liberation on the Royal Path of Initiation. Being is found in Not-Being. 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. yet before us everywhere is God. Yet God is here now. We look from Earth to the Gods in Heaven. The path of pleasure which man treads provides short-term gratification but is unrewarding or unsatisfying over the long-term. transcend the physical and notions of personal separateness and find Unity in God. You are called to duty now. You pick which aspect teaches you. Are not the lessons always the same?! Invoke. to the Moon. Nuit embraces that. Focus.only lessons. Sacrifice them to the Infernal Gods. The work begins with you who you perceive as separate from the rest of the Universe. transcend human sorrow and find True Life in the Love and Light of God. so they may be burnt and no more.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

we must “clean-up” before God allows us to Return to Eden. Evolution requires the Scarlet Woman to be produced before the Childe may be transformed into a Magus. Amen. but may be expedited by Understanding the process. and She will respond. manifesting Him and IT. This has been disclosed in the writings of the Sanctuary. However. She continually gives of Herself to Her Children which are of Her. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Binah. God lives through you. It is said that too much Light is blinding. Amen. Amen. as to the nature of the Work and how best to perform and accomplish the Work. albeit necessary at first. Any magickal powers or skill that you may exhibit or experience are of God. How beautiful is She who is every-where and No-Where?! She is many veiled and ever-present. It is in Her Nature to respond. The Daughter is the Mother. between God and man in the consciousness of man. as well as the Childe. God formulates and moves the Angel. just as the Abyss is the Grand Illusion. The Holy Guardian Angel is seen merely a link. God is communing directly with you every moment of your life. All illusion must be cast out to Return to the Womb of the Mother. whose consciousness has been exalted to the Briatic Realm. The Childe of Binah now sees clearly into the Planes below. Love is the answer and the key. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. therefore. Work nobly out of service and duty. Let Her Power to Love Silence the Waters to all but Her Desire. and be Healed thereby. The focus is on the relations of Briah and Yitzirah. the prior Work assists in organizing the Childe’s Sphere according to the Formulae of the Planes and cleaning it up. without desire. The Eucharist of Blood (DM) is of great importance in the practice of Magick. As the Childe of Binah receives the Fire of the All-Father and moves along the Path of Daleth. This is True. Drink thereof to Divine Love and Life. Love unites Wisdom with Understanding. Ask for the Eye to be opened unto the Formulae. sees these Yitziratic experiences as necessary to the evolution of man in relation to the Great Curse. By serving with Love and Understanding. The process of “baking” takes some time. and tempers Will. Project rightly in furtherance of the Great Work. Hail unto the Goddess. A Childe of Binah. There is no Sorrow. the Childe. no pain. and witnesses these phenomena with Compassion and Understanding. She is the hallowed tube of the Wand which the Fire runs through. With Love. However. However. The Little Tree is a reflection of the Great Tree within the Sphere of the Childe and. However. Your blood is Her blood. The 7th Aire (DEO). especially until purity has been attained and exemption is granted from most ceremony. God moves through all of us. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Binah. She awaits thee.Daughter in Malkuth. To do so would entail disaster. The 8th Aire (ZID). no suffering in the Supernal Realm. It is said that the Childe of Binah experiences the Vision of Sorrow. regardless of prior Work. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. the Truth is simple. partaking of the Fire. which is His Will. It is said that any Childe may take the Oath of the Childe of Binah. Endure with courage as a Compassionate Witness. Their blood is One. The Childe of Binah Understands. evolution rightly proceeds. Wisdom is found in Understanding. and are engines of truth and beauty just as any other guidance we receive from God. 246 . so the Childe’s consciousness may be progressively exalted to cast out all illusion. It may seem fantastic at first that a Childe may commune directly with God. There is Magickal Formulae to be fulfilled in connection with each Oath for a Sephira. the Angel is God descending the Planes. It is He who projects. You have no magickal powers or skill. we have every-thing which is No-Thing. but you cannot desire Her. and the Vessel may be made Pure and Perfect for God to indwell. Becomes the Scarlet Woman. an illusion of sorts. who is Love. Pain and suffering occur at the junction of Briah and Yitzirah. and the Role of the Holy Guardian Angel in relation to mankind.

those who do not will experience the Fire of God in the form of pain and suffering until the Eye turns. We are all pure vessels. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. who moves 247 . this struggle is but illusion. Within each Childe of Earth is a Perfect Childe waiting to be released. The Pentagram represents the manifest powers of the All-Father. They will do what it takes to make change. This is all a matter of perspective. The dust. as the Magus (still of Briah) receives from Kether and then expresses. Every Ordeal is an opportunity. Love tempers Will as it is expressed. to further cause you to pray for relief. For what exists beyond this World is of far greater beauty than any thing on Earth – Perfect Peace and Bliss. She is the Grand Hierophant. Your Star is unique. Love is the Law. The Universe is then gradually reduced down to the Holy Trinity of Nuit. We look to God for Initiation. this tempering does not weaken. We do no-thing in and of ourselves. The Holy Tau of Ygdrasil formulates within the Blade. This is a promise of God to those who turn their Eye to God to be redeemed. it is Nuit above who moves All. Love is the sole Ruling Principle. The Fire is sent down this Tau moving all below in accord with the Word. War. Consider all of your life events in an Initiatory context. We seemingly struggle with giving “ourselves” to God. What will it take to turn your Eye to God? The Angels are militant in this New Aeon. We first behold God through ITS various aspects. Great Wisdom is conveyed in this Aire for it shows correct perspective. which expresses the Will and is the basis for the Law. Nuit’s Chalice touches the Square of the Holy One at the Apex of the Blade. it is an indivisible part of the Whole. to reclaim our Starry heritage and to Reverse the Great Curse which caused the Fall of Man. We are moved by God in all ways. Love is under Will only below Kether. The Urn holds. Amen. renouncing selfish works and surrendering the rewards of our work to God. Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit as the Face of Spirit. which itself is the Sigil of Fire. Additional Commentary: The Fire of God also causes the Ordeals of Initiation. We see here the Supernal Father moving the Childe along the Chosen Way. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Chokmah. She formulates and moves Him. and even the Urn disappears as the Childe ceases Becoming and enters into Being. the Will and the Glory of God. Move when you hear the Word and as God Wills. However. eventually partakes of its Nature. Nevertheless. thus showing the entire Universe below. having been submitted to the Fire of the All-Father. Within Her manifests the Fire. It is said that the little pile of dust (representing the remnants of a Childe’s being) which entered the City of Pyramids upon being admitted as a Childe of Binah is burnt to a White “ASh” (Hebrew for fire) and placed in an Urn in the Tomb of the All-Father when the Childe is admitted as a Childe of Chokmah.

However. but strengthens the Hand of God which is felt as the Strength of Spirit.The 6th Aire (MAZ). where only Nuit and Hadit exist. disaster and catastrophe are all tools serving God.

Thoth appears in both expressions. However. There are no mistakes. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Chokmah. The Sign is of Silence. The 4th Aire (PAZ). For this Aire shows further evolution of the Childe. just as the Childe is a vessel. to maintain perfect equilibrium. and Life after Death as the Childe has reached the final stages of Becoming. The hallowed tube of the Wand must be clear of all obstruction for the Fire to be perfectly expressed. This includes Heru-Ra-Ha. at the Apex of the Blade which meets the Apex of Nuit’s Chalice. The vessel of the Childe is filled with the Prana of the All-Father. A. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. and Truth in Being. as the current once expressed must be balanced by Love. and They formulate and manifest Their many aspects below.G. Your Being is in God. However. The Childe of Chokmah expresses God’s Will. For the Initiate. We now speak of the Tomb of the All-Father and the end of Becoming. you have no Star. Change equals stability. There is nothing to forgive. all of which are Their Children. In Being. We all embody Adam Qadmon (the Supernal Man). we seek God.
