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!

We learn most fully through our own direct experiences. The practitioner engages in workings or experiments to learn and evolve magickally and spiritually. we see a discussion of the magick circle and how it should be organized for particular types of workings or experiments. Consider then the formulae being offered in each case. These must be learned and used to experience the corresponding energies and learn about the corresponding mysteries. through “The Daily Conjurations” that provides instruction of a most exalted nature. The various magickal planes have their own specific laws and formulae. You are a beautiful Star Childe. In the many books on magick handed down throughout the ages. extrapolate it and contemplate how to work with the formulae to attain certain results. To be skeptical is healthy. but is all encompassing. Your Sphere is akin to a Ball of Light which completely surrounds you. You begin by visualizing your Sphere. 31/31 31 Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. The organization proposed is addressing the formulae of the circle. which is always around you. which gives instruction to the newcomer who is beginning the Journey on the Royal Road of Initiation. We see a discussion of magickal formulae beginning in the “Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars”. 20 . This will assist in exalting your consciousness to higher magickal planes. You are encouraged to experiment with the various formulae given in the other papers of the Sanctuary. which is a proxy for your Sphere. It forms your True Magick Circle. Certain formulae must be learned and used by the newcomer to the practice of magick and others are used by the most evolved practitioners. and with the various rituals. Certain basics must be learned by the newcomer to bring right organization to your Sphere. The teachings of the Sanctuary focus on (among many other things) the formulae of your Sphere.

This can stop the flow of Will. as a sign to the Childe of Tiphareth that it is time to proceed on the Royal Path of Initiation to the work of the Childe of Geburah.

It is recommended that you perform your rite of initiation as a Childe of Geburah five times. it is comprised of a Red Ascending Triangle and a Blue Descending Triangle. Mercury corresponds with Chokmah (the 2). It is recommended that you take the Oath of the Path of Maim at the beginning of your period of initiation and remain subject to this Oath for the first two Solar Cycles. the Sun corresponds with Tiphareth (the 6 ). and. close as appropriate.

After the conclusion of this five Solar Cycle initiation period. Then. and the effects of performing it. and equilibrate the Energies. The Planetary correspondences to the Heavenly Hexagram also differ: Jupiter corresponds with Kether (the 1). The Heavenly Hexagram is described in the Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars. as transformations occur. Then. the Heavenly Hexagram is partly Briatic and partly Yitziratic. Mars corresponds with Geburah (the 5). Facing West. with the Eye focused on rising and reformulating the Sphere on the Solar Plane according to the formula given in the Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars.

As a Childe of Geburah. you will now do so from a higher perspective. You may prepare a Phoenix Wand if you are so inclined. Learning from the symbolism is what is important. as a Childe of Tiphareth. The Yitziratic Hexagrams are generally used only in work below the Solar Plane (for instance in performing Path workings on the Yitziratic Tree of Life). However. the illusions of personal separateness will be absorbed into the Light. and compare this to the symbolism of the Lotus Wand. This will likely not be an easy period in the Childe’s life. and the Elemental Childe (the 5) and the Angel (the 6) became one. The Yitziratic Hexagrams are not used on the Solar Plane. 68 . In this regard. Hence. it is recommended that the Childe of Geburah study the symbolism of the Phoenix Wand.

Puella is the first Magickal Sign of the Babe of the Abyss. your work is to evolve as a Mighty King or Queen. Amen!!!

As the work and initiation progresses. 69 . the Sun moves from the zenith of the Sphere and sets in the west. as the Mighty King or Queen evolves. Consider the Stations of the Sun in connection with this evolutionary process.

And may you further evolve as a Childe of Chesed. the Sun rises in the east and moves to the zenith of the Sphere (high noon). Jupiter takes its rightful position on the top point of the Heavenly Hexagram and Venus assumes its position at Chesed on the Heavenly Hexagram. Consider in this regard. through the Power of Love. the work of the Childe of Chesed can rightly be described as Mystickal in nature.

During your work as a Childe of Chesed. 70 . charged with the Fire of Chesed. What is given above will suffice with the guidance of your Angel. the Love of the Supernals will wash the Childe. the Yitziratic aspects of the Childe “fall away” and are left behind.) As the Childe learns to constantly focus the Eye on the Su pernal Holiness which is the Source of All. or periods of break. the Childe is lifted by the Hand of God across the Abyss and into the Womb of the Goddess. These are used to overcome any remaining illusions of personal separateness as Adepthood ripens into perfection and the Virgin Daughter is produced. the Childe of Chesed is to Love All under Will at this stage of evolution in accord with the Childe’s Oath.

(Additional Commentary: Your being. the Virgin Daughter will be produced. is the true Jupiter Talisman being made pure by this Work. The initiation process is continual and spans the entire period of the aspirant’s work as a Childe of Chesed. However. with nothing else around. and spend at least a few Solar Cycles subject to each Oath. it is recommended that you take the Oaths of the Paths of Kaph. In connection with this.

The Air point extends over the right shoulder. then tracing the right hand bar of the Cross and back to the center point (thus forming the Holy Tau of the Supernals). some virgin Olive Oil (which is a symbol of Wisdom and the Holy Spirit) will more than suffice.

The God and Childe will Work as one for the appointed time. the Childe will directly interact with the God. prior to performing an Invocation. and come to know the God through direct experience. Therefore. Love is the Law. It is of the utmost importance. Speak and praise the Holy Names of God. the Childe will be prompted to give a license to depart or it will simply happen. Love under Will. it would be appropriate to stand in the Sign of the Cross for a period of time to affirm the Unity of the Spirit of the God and Childe. you are encouraged to examine your internal and external experiences during the working and what follows thereafter. pay close attention to what you receive and experience afterwards. with a reverent.

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.

Unto Thee Nuit! Amen. He is Vau Tetragrammaton. Her nature is Love. and nourish the Children with Liberty and Life.

including that of the Chariot. this is to be cast out. which begins on the Female Side of the Tree and leads from Binah to Tiphareth. Its counterpart on the Male Side of the Tree is the Path of Heh attributed to Atu XVII – The Star. which is the Spirit of All and the Male Creative Life Force. Although there is no given Path on the Tree of Life from Binah to Chesed. which is the last Path on the Journey originating in the Supernal Realm. Perhaps. These form a basis for all of the Childe’s thoughts.who is of His Father and Mother. Amen. 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. The Microprosopus is a manifestation of God. Each Microcosm is unique but an indivisible part of the Macrocosm. which is the Soul of All. Atu VII – The Chariot. it shows the Influence of the Supernals on all motion in the Universe. The Charioteer wears the Crown of God. there is in the same flash counterbalancing action on the Female Side of the Tree. It is the “Fire 195 . we see such action on the Path of Zain. which is the Feminine Soul of Nature. 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. This is the Charioteer. The Pillars of Mercy and Severity. Atu VII is attributed to the Path of Cheth. There appears to be a separation (which is the Grand Illusion of the Abyss). It precedes the Mars Force of Geburah and is informing of the Law established in Chesed. We have the Chia of Chokmah. The Fire of the Holy One is expressed. symbolized by the four Pillars of the Chariot. which bring the Word into manifestation. The process of creation continues. The Charioteer is God manifesting to carry the Word into the lower planes. which transmits the Word to the Ruach.

When we think of action on the Male Side of the Tree. The Son has been created. We have the Neschamah of Binah. some of which are received in the form of silent speech. This motion. This Atu is of great importance. Amen. Love under Will”. This is the sole task of the Childe – to bear the Holy Grail – to receive. His transparency allows the Light and Love of His Parents to shine through unobstructed. words and deeds. the current of the Flaming Sword is not broken in its course. which was previously encountered on Spirit’s Journey. The Chia is received by the Neschamah. By speaking the Word. Mental offspring are produced and sent forth. Here. we stay focused on Spirit’s Journey down the Tree. The Microcosm is complete. The Ruach and the Nephesch are distinguished from what has preceded in the formulation of the Microcosm. Atu VI – The Lovers. it flows continuously for Chesed is a manifestation of that which preceded in the Womb of the AllMother. adorations unto Thee! Go forth to the Glory of the Holy Names of God. Babalon the Beautiful nourishes Her Lion-Childe with the Serpent Power. and embodies God’s Hands to work on the lower planes. Here. The parts of the Soul are now to be distinguished. The Journey now moves into the Yitziratic Realm. The Childe’s actions manifest God’s Will. which commenced in the Supernal Realm. and embodies all that preceded. but there is not. By its position. Rather. Amen. which lies between Chesed and Geburah. are reflected into the Microcosm. more than others. The Yechidah moves. The Journey now continues wholly below the Supernal Realm. is shown to be under the presidency of the Name (YHVH). we see a proof of the phrase “Love is the Law. O’ Beautiful Childe.

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

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

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. Received by Frater AHBH AL, as Scribe (Brian Goldstein) On behalf of the Sanctuary of Thoth Completed Die Luna, Sol in Scorpio, Luna in Libra Anno IVxvi in the New Aeon of Horus.

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

We speak first of the Blade. all below is seen looking down the Tau. though it is the Chalice which precedes the Blade upon High. The Blade is formed about the Ancient Tree of Life in Kether known as Ygdrasil. This Tree has its inception in the North. Alchemical Sulphur is slightly below and to the right of the Square of the Five in the South-East. is shaped in the form of a Tau and is shown below: NORTH 1 2 3 6 9 4 8 10 7 5 SOUTH The Three Forms of Energy are arranged about the Tau so that Alchemical Mercury is above the Square of the Holy One in the North. The Blade is the Ancient Symbol of the Triangle with the apex pointed upwards. The Blade encompasses Ygdrasil. The Chalice is the Ancient Symbol of the Triangle with the apex pointed downwards. The entire Universe below Kether is contained in the Malkuth of Ygdrasil as explained in other papers issued by the Sanctuary.

All below proceeds from the Holy Square of the One, which is the Crown. Yet the Crown is formulated and moved by the Chalice, which is the True Holy Grail. Even the Cup of Babalon the Beautiful is a lower aspect of the Chalice. The Holy Grail is hereby revealed. Nuit and Hadit formulate the Chalice. The lower apex of the Chalice formulates Kether, and the Crowned Childe sitting on the Throne in Kether. Thus we see the lower apex of the Chalice intersecting with the upper apex of the Blade, and all proceeding from the Chalice. The Chalice is the source of the Crown, and all below. The Crown is One, and cannot be divided. The Chalice Illumines your Natal Crown. As explained in another paper received and issued by the Sanctuary on this Holy Day (see “The Unveiling of Nuit – The Star Goddess”), Nuit formulates and moves even Hadit (the Male aspect of the Universe), as well as Ra-Hoor-Khuit. Thus we behold the Chalice as the Womb of Nuit, from which all Life and Light flow from Her Love. All are aspects of Nuit. There is No-Thing in the Universe which is not of and from Her. Her Soul is the Yechidah, which is in all that was, is and is to come. The 30 Aires (or Aethyrs) show but aspects of Her Soul.

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

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

208

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

209

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

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

May the Light of the Divine Wisdom transform and heal us. Therefore. The Love washes. Love nurtures as Venus reappears. we continue to experience the Spirits of God on an ever more exalted basis. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. She is the Aires. As She speaks. moving what it is to be moved. There could be many accounts of each Aire.

Harmony and Love and establishing the Law. which revolves. Additional Commentary: There is great difficulty in communicating an account of the Aires for different messages could be communicated based on level of Initiation.

The Sephiroth also have male and female characteristics. Is She not Nuit as Venus?! Is She not Nuit moving the Childe?! Is She not the Childe?! The Gunas revolve. The Aires are the Feminine aspects surrounding the Male manifestations of the Sephiroth. Is there no greater or more important task than to serve God with a loving and devoted heart?! Cannot you serve your charges best by serving God and evolving as a vessel for the Light and Love of God to shine through?! O’ my God. This is seen in all work below. Human love may thereby be transformed into a form of bhakti or practice of Loving God who is seen in all. We behold God upon high nurturing all below with the Holy Water. Enlighten us through Love.

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

therefore. all thoughts. and due penalty when so appropriate. It is. There is a human choice to direct the Eye to God. There are accounts which must be maintained and balanced.ever more exalted as Initiation progresses and we move through the Aires closer to the First. We get our just rewards. Perfect balance is required for Initiation. Resolve everything. Unfortunately. The Childe’s Initiation proceeds by serving as a receptacle of the Fire of the All-Father. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. which is bestowed with the Great Curse. karma is transcended. The remnants of once was is the “dust” of the Childe. the Work of an Initiate may at times seem selfish. This may be the case. Be the Sun. Look to God’s Face. 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 direct correspondence with Kether – the Natal Crown shines brightly. As it is said. for many of us. and a great deal must be dealt with to transcend the karma. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Tiphareth. The animal will directs the Eye. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Tiphareth. as the Childe expresses Will and Chia – the Life Force. To man. represents an accomplishment of the Great Work of the Angel. There is Unity in the Supernal Realm and so there is right balance – perfect equilibrium – at all times. Sacrifice is perceived as a part of Initiation. and then the Childe is moved by God’s Will accordingly. What then is sacrifice? As we move along the Chosen Way. 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 Thy Will be done. into the standard of your True Will. There is no one to cheat but your self. There is no will besides God’s Will. 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. when the Little Tree is broken. Death is followed by Life. if this is so directed in the course of the Work. There is no getting away with anything. 241 . what is to be let go is not of man’s will but a matter of Natural Law. once we rise above Yitzirah. There is a sacrifice of the Holy Guardian Angel when the Little Tree is broken and the Childe is set upon the Throne of the Mother. Perfect balance. however. Your life is not your life. As Nuit says in Liber AL I:58 . This. And so it is for the Initiate who has entered the King’s Chamber in Tiphareth and become a Young King or Queen. All is of God. we learn this late in life. honesty and fair dealing are always required in all aspects of life. Truth. Amen. There may be “things” which we must let go along the Way. The Fire and Water create perfect balance on the Middle Pillar. Amen. 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). Initiation – these are the themes. The Universe responds to the Word of the King spoken in the Voice of the Master. The Eye of God is always upon you. Nature is just but not necessarily fair. There is no desire but God’s Desire. However. The 16th Aire (LEA). Justice. so the Sun may proceed with the Blessings of All above. The Holy Work must not be left undone! No-thing is sacrificed if what is done is in accord with the Law. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. Treading the Royal Path of Initiation requires courage and determination to do what must be done. And so the King speaks the Word and brings Justice and Liberation to man. but there really is no-thing to sacrifice. This is how We act. We must calculate rightly which is a part of right action. Amen.“nor do I demand aught in sacrifice”. However. The 17th Aire (TAN). and so is Justice. proper and Righteous. words and deeds. in that the Initiate has a clear course of action which sometimes seems to not take into account the opinions of others. It is best that they never get out of balance. or not. it is God’s life to be lived as God so Wills.

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

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

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