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!

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

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

Now is the time when all the other Pentagram work comes together to organize the Sphere on an elemental and Sephirotic basis so Spirit may descend in the midst to redeem. (The Yitziratic Hexagrams are used to work directly with the Sephiroth and Paths on the Yitziratic Tree of Life.

Rites to Purify and Consecrate your Magickal Weapons The approach of the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation is to provide Formulae for Initiation. They exist purely in Spiritual form.

The Magickal Signs of the Childe of Tiphareth These are the LVX Signs. Commentary: This Cross is initially the Cross of the Elements or the Cross of Suffering. the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot. The Magickal Signs of the Adepti are described in this paper. 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.

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.

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. She is shown caring for them. and has the combined Powers of His Parents to do so. which connects Chokmah and Binah.

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

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

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

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.

200

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

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

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

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.

It reveals the Woman of Yesod in the most exalted sense.

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. The 19th Aire (POP). We sit. the Childe’s Star is consumed by the Fire of Hadit. we wait for Thy Word. and allow your prayers to be answered. the Glory of God in the Highest may shine. The Angels sing praise. the Childe’s role is to serve as a Redeemer to the Children of Earth. love and devotion to the Holy Names of God. Amen. but what is paid is of no value and what is gained is God’s Embrace and Love. or is there a higher purpose? In the absence of the latter. as the Childe evolves. 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 First and Second Orders are about evolving the Little Tree which the Childe embodies. The lesson is to direct and concentrate the Ruach (Mind). from this perspective. So what are we to do? How may we serve Thee and the Great White Brotherhood? Pray. The Power of Love and to Love is shown. and every one of us makes a difference. We are also reminded that. they always speak to Love and to Death. The 18th Aire (ZEN). Your bedroom is your cell in your monastery.

All is of God. and so is Justice. However. There is direct correspondence with Kether – the Natal Crown shines brightly. therefore. It is. And so it is for the Initiate who has entered the King’s Chamber in Tiphareth and become a Young King or Queen. There is no getting away with anything. which is bestowed with the Great Curse. 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. karma is transcended. Justice. There is no will besides God’s Will. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Tiphareth. Death is followed by Life. Sacrifice is perceived as a part of Initiation.

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

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

The Eye opens by God’s Hand. to rid your consciousness of the Yitziratic aspects that cause you to perceive a separation between God and man. Purity comes from doing only True Will and Loving All as God. The Word establishes the Law. Work for God. Therefore. 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. Hence. The Aires are also used to deepen the perspective of the Childe of Nuit. Let the Power of Discrimination be sharpened so you see through God’s Eye. and is communicated down the Tree and though the Planes. Everyone’s efforts are important. By serving as a Source of Light and Love to our charges. Live and Love! Life is about the experience – learn from all you have to draw upon. 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. be communicated to all the Children of Earth. God and man are One. Most Exalted. all unfolds. Amen. 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. as the Childe works with the Female from the inception of the Initiation Process. who then is prepared to be set upon the Throne of the Great Mother. We are all the Sons and Daughters of Nuit and Hadit. The Spoken Word carries Great Divine Power when the Crown is worn. however. That Little Tree which you embody simply has to be shed. words and deeds. and may the Blessings and Power of God be with you. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. Therefore. support and Love your Brothers and Sisters. The quality of the Aires can. it is said the Aires contain the Knowledge of the Aeons and form the Robe of the High Priestess.

It is the perspective of the Aire which “flavors” the response. wearing the Natal Crown as a Mighty King or Queen of God. that is in accord with the Law and spoken by God (at times through the Childe) carries with it the Power of God. the Male aspects show the Female aspects. Within each Aire. As we see through All. an infinite number of subjects may be addressed. And so Vir evolves into Puella.the work of man is secondary and is only important once placed in the context of the Great Work. nurture. but our Work and life circumstances differ. We practice Magick through how we lead our lives. the foreshadowing of the future. so that you may be moved ever so rightly along the Chosen Way. the Childe may speak in the Voice of the Master in furtherance of the Great Work.

You see God’s purpose which gives meaning. Similarly. speak rightly. our appointed roles to fulfill. Man is One. which is the initial subject of Initiation. for only right speech which is furtherance of the Great Work. and especially your charges. though the Male and not so much the Female appears to be the subject of the experiments. In so doing. and vice versa. The meanings of events. There is division below the Supernal Planes and Unity above Yitzirah. See yourself in your Holy Form.

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

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.

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

It may seem fantastic at first that a Childe may commune directly with God. The Holy Guardian Angel is seen merely a link. God moves through all of us. we have every-thing which is No-Thing. but you cannot desire Her. which is His Will. the Angel is God descending the Planes. However. God formulates and moves the Angel. Your blood is Her blood. It is said that the Childe of Binah experiences the Vision of Sorrow. The focus is on the relations of Briah and Yitzirah. There is Magickal Formulae to be fulfilled in connection with each Oath for a Sephira. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. as to the nature of the Work and how best to perform and accomplish the Work. and witnesses these phenomena with Compassion and Understanding. Ask for the Eye to be opened unto the Formulae. It is said that any Childe may take the Oath of the Childe of Binah. evolution rightly proceeds. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Binah. The Childe of Binah Understands. By serving with Love and Understanding. therefore. 246 . Love unites Wisdom with Understanding. The process of “baking” takes some time. God is communing directly with you every moment of your life. the prior Work assists in organizing the Childe’s Sphere according to the Formulae of the Planes and cleaning it up. manifesting Him and IT. It is said that too much Light is blinding. Love is the answer and the key. especially until purity has been attained and exemption is granted from most ceremony. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Binah. Wisdom is found in Understanding. partaking of the Fire. Hail unto the Goddess. no pain. Any magickal powers or skill that you may exhibit or experience are of God. However. The Eucharist of Blood (DM) is of great importance in the practice of Magick. It is He who projects. without desire.Daughter in Malkuth. and are engines of truth and beauty just as any other guidance we receive from God. no suffering in the Supernal Realm. To do so would entail disaster. Pain and suffering occur at the junction of Briah and Yitzirah. She awaits thee. regardless of prior Work. just as the Abyss is the Grand Illusion. and tempers Will. As the Childe of Binah receives the Fire of the All-Father and moves along the Path of Daleth. God lives through you. Drink thereof to Divine Love and Life. we must “clean-up” before God allows us to Return to Eden. A Childe of Binah. Project rightly in furtherance of the Great Work. She continually gives of Herself to Her Children which are of Her. but may be expedited by Understanding the process. There is no Sorrow. With Love. and She will respond. Amen.

Becomes the Scarlet Woman. as well as the Childe. and be Healed thereby. The Daughter is the Mother. Their blood is One. an illusion of sorts. sees these Yitziratic experiences as necessary to the evolution of man in relation to the Great Curse. Evolution requires the Scarlet Woman to be produced before the Childe may be transformed into a Magus. This is True. This has been disclosed in the writings of the Sanctuary. Let Her Power to Love Silence the Waters to all but Her Desire. The 8th Aire (ZID). and the Vessel may be made Pure and Perfect for God to indwell. Amen. It is in Her Nature to respond. so the Childe’s consciousness may be progressively exalted to cast out all illusion. who is Love. All illusion must be cast out to Return to the Womb of the Mother. the Truth is simple. However. The Childe of Binah now sees clearly into the Planes below. She is the hallowed tube of the Wand which the Fire runs through. You have no magickal powers or skill. However. How beautiful is She who is every-where and No-Where?! She is many veiled and ever-present. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. The 7th Aire (DEO). whose consciousness has been exalted to the Briatic Realm.

Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit as the Face of Spirit. In all due course. the Will and the Glory of God. We are all pure vessels. Amen. The dust. which is the Point of Rising unto the Atziluthic Plane. She is the Grand Hierophant. eventually partakes of its Nature. Love is under Will only below Kether. For what exists beyond this World is of far greater beauty than any thing on Earth – Perfect Peace and Bliss. We first behold God through ITS various aspects. This is further shown by the Paths leading from Chokmah (Vau. it is an indivisible part of the Whole. Your Star is unique. this struggle is but illusion. This is all a matter of perspective. As a result. 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. Nuit’s Chalice touches the Square of the Holy One at the Apex of the Blade. We see here the Supernal Father moving the Childe along the Chosen Way. Love is the sole Ruling Principle. and behold God’s Wisdom unfold. disaster and catastrophe are all tools serving God. She formulates and moves Him. it is Nuit above who moves All. as the Magus (still of Briah) receives from Kether and then expresses. This is a promise of God to those who turn their Eye to God to be redeemed. Many who are innocent get caught in the cross-fire. Within Her manifests the Fire. The Eye is opened by God to the Childe’s degree of Initiation. They will do what it takes to make change. However. War. We seemingly struggle with giving “ourselves” to God. We look to God for Initiation. which expresses the Will and is the basis for the Law. where only Nuit and Hadit exist. who moves you through your Spirit and senses. and even the Urn disappears as the Childe ceases Becoming and enters into Being. and proceed ever to the Glory of God. The Universe is then gradually reduced down to the Holy Trinity of Nuit. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. to further cause you to pray for relief. those who do not will experience the Fire of God in the form of pain and suffering until the Eye turns. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. which itself is the Sigil of Fire. who moves 247 . We are moved by God in all ways. the Fire consumes all remnants. but strengthens the Hand of God which is felt as the Strength of Spirit. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Chokmah.The 6th Aire (MAZ). some more evolved than others. Nevertheless. The Urn holds. Within each Childe of Earth is a Perfect Childe waiting to be released. Love tempers Will as it is expressed. This is the Law of Thelema. We do no-thing in and of ourselves. Consider all of your life events in an Initiatory context. Additional Commentary: The Fire of God also causes the Ordeals of Initiation. Upon High. The only Law is to do God’s Will. The Fire is sent down this Tau moving all below in accord with the Word. to be redeemed from the pain and suffering of this World. The Holy Tau of Ygdrasil formulates within the Blade. Move when you hear the Word and as God Wills. However. It is True that our Starry structures are shown by our Natal Crowns. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Chokmah. The Symbol of Alchemical Sulphur appears showing one of the three markers delineating the Blade. Every Ordeal is an opportunity. The Pentagram represents the manifest powers of the All-Father. which further purify the Initiate for progress. renouncing selfish works and surrendering the rewards of our work to God. All are chosen to be redeemed. Great Wisdom is conveyed in this Aire for it shows correct perspective. Heh and Daleth). to reclaim our Starry heritage and to Reverse the Great Curse which caused the Fall of Man. this tempering does not weaken. However. thus showing the entire Universe below.

The dust of the Childe has been burnt to a White ASh and placed in an Urn in the Tomb. Further. There is No-thing but Nuit and Hadit in Atziluth. There is falsehood in Becoming. You wear the Crown of God. which is called the Holy Ygdrasil. The ASh is the Fire of the All-Father. The Childe receives from Atziluth. Even the Childe of Chokmah is of Briah.

Change equals stability. Your Being is in God. as Becoming has ended in Being. We now speak of the Tomb of the All-Father and the end of Becoming. Thoth appears in both expressions. There are no mistakes. and what was seen as the Childe’s Star in Chokmah is now perceived to be that of Hadit as a Male manifestation. The hallowed tube of the Wand must be clear of all obstruction for the Fire to be perfectly expressed.A.Hadit. and Truth in Being. There is end and beginning. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Chokmah. we seek God. As evolution proceeds.G. However. There is no-thing to fear. just as the Childe is a vessel. you have no Star. you are subject to the Great Curse.
