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!

The Sanctuary’s System of Initiation teaches first how to take control of your physical senses. 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). The Pentagram teaches that these are presided over by Spirit. whether by using the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation or some other. suffering ceases to exist on the Higher Planes. 31/31 31 Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. This same work is accomplished through the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation. We discover the nature of our suffering. The Way is being shown. in simplest terms. placing desire in proper perspective and tempering our actions according. How you attend to the details. in the course of Initiation into the Sephiroth and the Paths. This is through the teachings of the Sanctuary.

When this occurs. the Virgin Daughter Becomes the Mother as explained in other papers issued by the Sanctuary. Use each breath wisely and well. Only you can do your Work. This is done initially using the Yitziratic Hexagram. It is time for man to make further progress in this regard. even the Childe of Kether. Ultimately. You can do it! However. The Childe perceives Heaven on Earth. The Childe has not completed the Return Journey up the Tree of Life. However. 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). as the Virgin Daughter is redeemed and enters Briah. and human suffering is placed in proper perspective and seen for what it is. The Highest of Initiations may be attained by All. Thus does the Vessel attain Perfect Transparency for the Light of Love of the Chalice to Shine through. Let no one say otherwise. and only the Spiritual Being abides and moves. and find purpose and meaning to our lives in all that we do. 16 . In the course of this Work. The “human being” is Silenced. who has ceased Becoming and entered into Being. There are still transformations which must occur. Amen. The Childe must traverse the Path of Daleth to attain to Chokmah. and may you experience Heaven on Earth. which is an aspect of the Work of the Childe of Tiphareth.

When you discover your True Self and your True Will. still must attain unto Nuit in the Ultimate Initiation and enter into Not-Being. you will discover the absence of an ego in all aggregates. This is not to say that the Childe no longer suffers the same pain of aging or injury just like any other human. Perspective from the Higher Plane of Briah is attained. and truly behold the Glory of God.The Sanctuary’s System of Initiation also teaches how to consecrate your self to the Divinity within at each Step along the Royal Way. we behold the Nature of All things (attain “right views”). a ripening and perfecting of Adepthood. Put an end to your suffering. Further. Most established religions have stopped short of what is necessary to bring their devotees to the Supreme realization and True Goal of man. Pain and suffering occur at the junction of Briah and Yitzirah. Every breath is an opportunity. The Sanctuary’s System of Initiation systematically takes you through every step to bring you there. the purpose for it is seen and beheld as necessary in the Great Work. However. which is then redeemed and set upon the Throne of the Great Mother in Binah. without exception. to produce the Virgin Daughter. In the course of this work. all Sorrow is seen as Pure Joy.

However. Look through this Eye with your mind. Coloration and other visualizations will naturally evolve as you progress in your initiation. Although there is formula to movement (which will be the subject of future Scrolls). and place the cardinal points about it. see the Sephiroth in position. visualize the Eye in a Triangle upon your brow in the center of your forehead.Drawing the Ritual. which is the place of the Rising Sun. with the Eye ever present in the center thereof. This will help invoke and/or reinforce the presence of the force. Move around it.)

consider the following. Once you feel you have completed the projection in this direction. can be performed by starting in the center of your Sphere and then turning to each cardinal direction.

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. Spirit is the “elemental” aspect of the work. consider also that there is Holy Unity above the Abyss (and relativity below the Abyss).) The goal of the Dominis Liminis is to consciously link the embodied Microcosmic Tree of Life (also referred to as the “Little Tree” in the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation) with the Great Tree. you are invoking the Spiritual aspect of the Macrocosmic Tree of Life (also referred to as the “Great Tree” in the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation) on which your Sphere is being placed during the working. All must be placed in service of Spirit! Let these words ring in your ears at this stage of the Work.Pentagram Formulae for the Dominis Liminis The Dominis Liminis works with Spirit and the Spirit Pentagrams (among the other Stars and Symbols given in the Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars and the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation).

The Womb of the Goddess will respond. It would also be appropriate to make the Sign of Triumph while reading the words of the third section (if you are magickally signing during the Invocation). the Childe appeals to the God for aid in the Holy Work. When speaking the words of this section. The Childe now recognizes the Unity of the God and the Childe within the Sphere of the Childe. The Essence or Prana of the God is now received and concentrated in the Sphere. This is done by projecting the words of the section into the Universe. The first section relates to Fire and the Atziluthic Plane. You and the God are now one. Feel the Essence of the God saturate your Sphere as a blue watery color. see the red fire of your projection emanating out through your Sphere in all directions as a call. It would be appropriate to make the Sign of Projection while reading the words of the first section (though this is unnecessary. Following this paper is a series of Invocations of some of the Gods which are regularly invoked in the Magickal Practices of the Sanctuary. Do this as best you can. The call has been made. as an offering of love and devotion to the Gods. especially as you work with the God.

The God and Childe will Work as one for the appointed time. and especially during the remainder of the Magickal Day on which the Invocation is performed. When it is time for the Childe to regain “normal” consciousness. worship and call upon Them. to clearly and succinctly formulate the purpose of the working in a manner which is consistent with the Great Work. with a reverent. and praise the Holy Name of the God. as Scribe (Brian Goldstein) On behalf of the Sanctuary of Thoth 156 .

The God now materializes in the body of the Childe. Speak and praise the Holy Names of God. As this is occurring during the words of the Invocation. at the conclusion of the Invocation. It would be appropriate to make the Sign of the Blazing Star while reading the words of the fourth section (if the other Magickal Signs described above have been made). Invocations have a transforming effect on a Childe.The fourth section relates to Earth and the Assiatic Plane. Love under Will. the Childe will directly interact with the God. Therefore. In this way. equilibrate and inform the elements of the Childe in a way to further the Great Work. the Childe should give thanks for the experience (regardless of the perceived outcome at the time). If you are making the Magickal Signs as described above. Your Invocation will tend to shape the events which follow. the Spirit of the God will descend in the midst of the Invocation through the Magickal Planes to redeem. With the Eye rightly and intensely focused on the Great Work to be performed. it would be appropriate to stand in the Sign of the Cross for a period of time to affirm the Unity of the Spirit of the God and Childe. It is also critical to the success of the working that the Eye remain focused on the Great Work to be accomplished until concluded.

This is done by placing the elements of the Childe’s Sphere under the Presidency of the Name (YHVH) by formulating the Zodiacal Belt about the Sphere and the four Pillars of the Temple (representing the Father. say “The Sign of Orus”. the Mother. 31/31 31 Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. are described in the paper entitled The Scroll of the Pentagram Formulae for the First Order under the section of the paper entitled “The Pentagram Formula for the Dominis Liminis”.

the Daughter) within the Sphere. The Middle Pillar is established in the Void in the Center of the Sphere, which is the place of Spirit. This being done, the Childe must then consciously connect the movements of these elements (the 5) to the dominion of the Holy Guardian Angel in Tiphareth (the 6). Thus will the Name reformulate as YHShVH and thus will the Childe realize the equation of 5 = 6, which will release the Childe from the Cross of Suffering and allow the Childe to embody or assume the Cross of Gold. Amen.  L – Feet remain in position, raise the right hand so the right arm is extended straight up with the palm open and facing to the left and moved to slightly over the head, the left arm is down and bent at the elbow so the bottom part of the arm is horizontally extended to the left of the body. While doing this, look left and say “The Sign of the Dance of Asi”. V – Feet remain in position, raise both hands over the head so the arms are extended in the shape of a “V” with palms tilted slightly outwards, direct your consciousness behind you while looking forward and say - “The Sign of the Joy of Iacchus.” This is also called the Sign of Triumph commonly used in other rituals of the Sanctuary. X – Feet remain in position, cross both forearms over the chest, left over right (to show the arm corresponding with the Pillar of Mercy on the embodied Little Tree as “active” so to speak and the arm corresponding with the Pillar of Severity on the embodied Little Tree as “passive” so to speak), make fists with the hands, and say “The Sign of the Blazing Star”. Direct your consciousness forward, make the Sign of the Cross again and the Sign of the Blazing Star again while saying “LVX, Lux, the Light of the True Cross”. This completes the making of the LVX Signs. May the Yitziratic Hexagram formed on the Little Tree which you embody shine like the Sun and the Cross of the Elements turn to Gold! Amen. Commentary: Note that, if you are standing in the Center of the Sphere while you make the LVX Signs: o While making the Sign of the Cross, you will be looking east in the place of Aries which is the cardinal sign of Fire on the Zodiacal belt. o While making the Sign of the Dance of Asi, you will be looking to the north in the place of Cancer which is the cardinal sign of Water on the Zodiacal belt. o While make the Sign of the Joy of Iacchus (the Sign of Triumph), your consciousness will be directed to the west in the place of Libra which is the cardinal sign of Air on the Zodiacal belt. o While making the Sign of the Blazing Star, your consciousness will be directed to the south in the place of Capricorn which is the cardinal sign of earth on the Zodiacal belt.

o While making the final Sign of the Cross and Sign of the Blazing Star, your consciousness is again being directed to the east, completing the Circle of the Zodiacal Belt as you complete this aspect of your invocation. Go forth now Childe of Tiphareth in the Light and Love of your Holy Guardian Angel. Amen. The Magickal Sign of the Childe of Geburah The Magickal Sign of the Childe of Geburah is Puer – the Boy. The Childe of Geburah has realized the equation of 5 = 6 described above. Adepthood has been attained. The Childe is like a young Majestic King or Queen who now Works in the Knowledge and Conversation of His Holy Guardian Angel. The Work of the Childe of Geburah involves a ripening of Adepthood into a phase of adulthood, as the Childe evolves into a Mighty Warrior of God who does only True Will (from the perspective of Geburah) and nothing else. The Childe is evolving as a Pure Vessel for the Angel. The Childe has consciously connected the movement of the elements of the Childe to the dominion of the Holy Guardian Angel. However, this has not been fully assimilated as of yet in the consciousness of the Childe. The Childe now is to realize the equation of 6 = 5, which shows that the Holy Guardian Angel has complete dominion over the Childe’s thoughts, words and deeds. The Angel moves the Childe. In the process of Initiation into these Mysteries, an occult “death” of sorts occurs, as the Childe realizes human being to be nothing but an extension of the Angel’s Being and the Childe is rid of any qliphotic parts. The Childe’s Eye has been rightly focused. Preliminary Second Order initiations have been attained. The Childe of Geburah now moves from the Lower Astral Plane (represented by the Yitziratic Hexagram which had formulated on the floor of the Childe’s Sphere) to the Upper Astral Plane or Solar Plane (represented by the Heavenly Hexagram which will formulate on the floor of the Childe’s Sphere). The Solar Plane has its own magickal formulae which have been aptly described in other papers issued by the Sanctuary. It is said that Magickal Power is granted to the Childe of Geburah, as the Angel now performs the Holy Magick through the Childe. As the Angel acts through the Childe, the Magick is performed by a simple concentration and direction of the Powers of the Mind. These Mysteries are revealed through the symbolism of the Wand of the Childe of Geburah, which is the Phoenix Wand. They are also revealed by the Sign of Puer, which invokes the Spiritual Energies of Geburah and may be used to direct the Mars Force as appropriate in the Great Work. The Sign may be made mentally or physically with equal success, as follows:  Stand, looking straight forward in the direction appropriate to the invocation or projection, the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot, the right hand is raised with the arm bent at the elbow so the palm is open and facing outwards before the right shoulder with fingers spread apart, the left hand is placed before and against the genitals with the thumb extended straight out horizontal to the body with the remaining fingers curled to the palm. Nothing is said while making this Sign.

188

Commentary: The right hand shows a projection of the Pentagram, which is formed by the presentation of the hand. The Pentagram is a symbol of Geburah and the manifest Powers of the All-Father of Chokmah. The left hand shows a projection of the regenerative power which is the Mars Force from perspective of the Childe’s present Work on the Tree of Life. The Magickal Signs of the Childe of Chesed The Magickal Sign of the Childe of Chesed is Vir – the Man or King. The Childe has evolved from a young Majestic King or Queen as a Childe of Tiphareth, to a Mighty Warrior of God doing only True Will as a Childe of Geburah and now must evolve into a Mighty King or Queen as a Childe of Chesed. This is done by and through attaining the Power to Love and what is known as the Balances. From the perspective of the Childe of Chesed, the Power to Love, which is to Love All in every thought, word and deed, is conferred by Babalon the Beautiful, who is a lower aspect of Nuit. Pray to Babalon for the Power to Love All, and to Silence the Waters to all but Her Desire which is His Will. Love balances Will, so the Fire of Will does not burn. Said another way, Love tempers Will. This is shown most directly by the Feminine Nature of the Paths leading from Chokmah. Chesed emanates the purest expressions of these Spiritual Energies below the Abyss in the form of the Serpent Power (which precedes the Mars Force). The Sign of Vir shows the nature of this expression. It may be made mentally or physically with equal success, as follows;  Stand, looking straight forward in the direction appropriate to the invocation or projection, the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot, both hands are raised to the sides of the head slightly above and before the ears, the thumbs are pointed out and forward bent at the knuckle, and the other four fingers of each hand are curled to the palms. Nothing is said while making this Sign. Commentary: The Sign of Vir may be made to invoke the Spiritual Energies of Chesed and project the Serpent-Power in the Great Work. The Sign itself further shows the Balances, which the Childe of Chesed must attain as noted above. The Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter The Power to Love washes the Childe and makes the Childe pure and chaste. As the Childe of Chesed receives Initiation in the “inner”, the Childe will express the purest Will currents balanced by Love below the Abyss. The Childe sees All as God and, thus, Loves All as God. The Childe still embodies the Little Tree, which distinguishes the Childe as a member of the Second Order. When the Little Tree is refined and honed to Perfection, the Childe will attain to the Holy State of the Virgin Daughter, who is to be redeemed according to the Formula of the Tetragrammaton and set upon the Throne of the Great Mother in Binah. This may be accomplished only when the Childe is of Pure Aspiration. The progression of the Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter is further shown by the Planetary attributions of the Heavenly Hexagram.

189

On the Heavenly Hexagram, Venus is attributed to the Sphere of Chesed and Jupiter moves to its rightful position in the place of the Sphere of Kether. Thus, as the Childe attains to Chesed in the “inner” on the Heavenly Hexagram, the Sign of Puella – the Girl or Virgin Daughter - follows the Sign of Vir. This is the first of the Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter, who aspires unto Binah. As further described in other papers of the Sanctuary, in order to attain to Binah, the Little Tree of the Virgin Daughter must be “broken”, which means the Holy Guardian Angel of the Childe (attributed to the Little Tree as the Son) must be sacrificed by no other than by the Hand of God. This is done by a Ritual performed by the Holy One related to the Mysteries of Atu VI entitled “The Lovers”. The Childe will then temporarily embody the Great Tree, as the Childe stands before the Holy One and the Supernal Mother in Binah and the Supernal Father in Chokmah. Even this Great Tree is then left behind as the Childe’s vessel is emptied and filled with the Essence of the All-Mother. The Childe will then enter the Supernal Triangle as the Great Mother and Work as a Childe of Binah. The second of the Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter, who is in the process of making this Journey, is called the Sign of Babalon, who is attributed to Binah. On the Heavenly Hexagram, the Moon is attributed to Binah. Thus, this Sign shows through symbolism the process of making the Journey first by embodying the Great Tree and then by receiving the Essence of the All-Mother and Becoming wholly the Great Mother. The Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter may be made mentally or physically with equal success, as follows:  The Sign of Puella – Stand, the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot, the right hand covers the left breast with palm open on the body, the left hand covers the genitals with palm open on the body, and the head is tilted down and slightly to the left with an attitude of innocence. The Sign of Babalon – Stand, feet spread wide apart, heels under the shoulders with feet at 45º degree angles, the arms lifted above the head and bent at the elbows with hands arched inward and the palms out, the head is tiled down. This is also known as the Sign of Mulier. When making this Sign, visualize the Little Tree being “broken” and pushed away, and replaced by the Great Tree. The Childe is silent when making these Signs.

May the Virgin Daughter arise from the progression in the Sign of Maters Triumphant. This concludes the Magickal Signs which represent a crossing of the Abyss. To attain unto Binah, a Virgin Daughter must overcome the Abyss. The symbolism of the “Abyss” shows there is a separation between God and man. This is the Grand Illusion. There is no separation between God and man except in the consciousness of man. The Daughter is the Mother. God is man. Once rid of any qliphotic parts, and made pure and chaste, the Holy One will Reverse the Great Curse and cause the Virgin Daughter to undergo these holy transformations to arise newborn to Understanding as a Childe of Binah ever to the Glory of God. Amen.

They are of Her. tempers and transmits the Fire of His Will.

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

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

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

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

198

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

199

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

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

Copyright © 2008 Sanctuary of Thoth. All rights reserved.

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

Water in the West and Earth in the South. The entire Universe below Kether is contained in the Malkuth of Ygdrasil as explained in other papers issued by the Sanctuary.

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

Look intensely at the Atu. with the corresponding Hebrew letter in the center thereof. of the Path. 2. 230 . There are two primary methods of working with a Path. As you do so. I call upon the Lords of the Path to Initiate me into the Mysteries. (These are given in detail in the “Table of Stars and Symbols” attached as an appendix to the “Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars” and the “Guide to the Oaths of Initiation”. To scry a Path: 1. I invoke a Portal to the Path of [name the corresponding Hebrew letter. and pay close attention to your thoughts and the images which appear on the screen on your mind. Hold your hand over the Atu (touching it) to “catch” reflections from the Path for as long as you deem appropriate. 4. In either case. and assist me in equilibrating the Energies. say: 3.) As you perform Step 2. This may be done mentally with equal success to a full physical ceremonial operation.

Allow your mind to be calm and free but concentrated on the work. you will directly experience the Path as opposed to “catching reflections” from it. 5. Take note of their correspondences.

A full ceremonial working invoking corresponding energies and Names (or even working in an appropriate God Form) will especially assist in this type of operation. Make note in your magickal journal of your experiences on the Path. with the goal of ascending up the Path from its starting point in one Sephira to its ending point at the Sephira at the other end of the Path. Then return through the doorway which you formulated and projected back to your physical body. By doing so. Then close your eyes and imagine yourself as moving through the door with it remaining completely and wholly intact behind you. Call again to the Lords of the Path for aid on the work. and other insights. Envision the Atu as appearing before you as a door. Another form of working is by entering the Path rather than simply scrying it. and otherwise explore and contemplate your experience to gain insight into the Work.

Yet each point is ever part of the Circle. This is how God expresses Itself through Itself. but first we speak of nature of the First and Second Angelic Keys. and open the Eye to the Work of the coming period. The Second and 19 th Keys are used in succession to open the 30 Aires. We are moved as a point. They “unlock” the Crown. The Enochian Angelic Keys. the Aires extend beyond the Watchtowers of the Universe and encompass or encircle them. making 31 Keys in total (which is the number of Nuit. They are rightly used to herald in 233 . Although each Aire has correspondence to an aspect of the Tree of Life. We begin with the 30 th Aire and end with the First Aire. who is “LA” or Not and whose Being is Not). and bring the Childe beyond the Crown to Nuit. Cast thy Circles thrice about. Such is the embrace of our Lady of the Stars who moves us from without and within. Such is the Womb of Nuit. 31 of the Gates are opened by rightly making the Calls of the 30 Aires. The points are infinite. In this way. All rights reserved. as the Natal Crown is Illumined. rightly used. And so the Point (which is Hadit) is progressively beheld as a Circle (which is Nuit). and call upon Spirit to Crown the Work of the passing period. There are 48 Gates of Understanding. We exist within. open the Gates of Understanding to the Cities of Wisdom. The First Key is a Call of Him. and each is part of the One and None (the Qabalistic Zero). An account of each Aire is given below.

The other 17 Gates are opened by making right use of the Calls of the First and Third through 18 th of the Angelic Keys. The Aires are aspects of the Yechidah. And so we are to open three Aires consecutively to come to an aspect of Godhead.

The Second Key is a Call of Her. The Second and 19 th Keys open the Womb of Nuit beyond the Male aspects of the Universe. i. We now proceed into the Womb of Nuit. We will be traveling up each Tree of Life in each Sphere. until we reach the Tree of Life in Kether. which contains the entire Universe below IT. However. We recall here a Great Mystery of the 30th Aire. This Key may be used alone to invoke the Powers of the Lower Mother. just as the 30 th Aire has correspondence with First Order matters. We are reminded that we are still working with the Tree of Life in Malkuth. These energies are nearing their final form. which is a tool to be used to experience and equilibrate the Male energies expressed in this Aire and manifesting below. All of what has been said above since the inception of this paper relates to the Mystery of the 30th Aire. which are positive manifestations and. named Ygdrasil. The lower astral plane is at issue. The Aspiration of the Soul moves the animal within the Childe. The Female manifests the Male. And so we see the connection of the First and the Last Trees of Life. how the First encompasses the Last (completing the Circle in Kether). 9 and 10 on that Tree. and the Male expressions reveal the Female. We are undertaking another form of the Return Journey. This Aire is attributed to the Tree of Life in Malkuth. This is the Soul beyond the Neschamah. Alternatively. The Sephiroth and Paths are positive or Male expressions or emanations of Divinity. The Aires are Female in Nature. We are now addressing the lowest manifestation of the animal soul or Nephesch. This Aire encompasses the Spheres numbered 4. invoking the Female aspects of the Universe.. This is so through every aspect of the Universe. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Malkuth. and how we are all part of the Body of God. God is so revealed in the First and the Last.e. this Malkuth is also contained in the Malkuth of Ygdrasil. The Higher encompasses and moves the lower. all under One God – ARARITA. and the Elements are blind forces through which Divinity expresses Itself. and are made heavy as they go forth into the material plane below. 8. The Aires provide the female aspects or Body in which the Male manifests and expresses. Reference is made to the Yitziratic Hexagram. Male in Nature. which is the 19 th Key (varied as appropriate by inserting the Name of the Aire at the proper point in the Call). Only by Art is the Childe evolved and transformed to behold these Holy Mysteries. In our Sanctuary’s System of 234 . and encompasses the Spheres numbered 7. It feeds on desire and sensual pleasures and is the animal king of the human body. which must be tamed and placed in service of Spirit to Reverse the Great Curse. which is still dark as we have not yet moved in the present journey to the Tree of Life in Yesod. therefore. and the last three Aires (ZOM. Amen. The 29th Aire (RII). and only by God’s Will are they revealed.the Solar Tides (generally just before the Tide change) and the Solar Cycles (generally just before the Sun and Moon conjoin in a Sign at the time of the New Moon). The 30th Aire (TEX). the Key is used before making the Call of the 30 Aires. which was formed by the Great Curse that caused the Fall of Man. The Life force is communicated through this Aire to the last Aire where it manifests. the last on the 10 th and final Tree. The Malkuth contained in the 30 th Aire is the final Malkuth. This Aire concerns the Initiation of the Childe of Malkuth. This is the Great Order of the Universe as shown by the arrangement of the Aires and the Sephiroth. It is the Soul of those Spheres. the Female and the Male. the Yechidah Itself. The Nephesch is formulated upon High and manifests in Malkuth. which concerns Earthly matters. It has correspondence with Second Order matters. Amen. by focusing the Childe’s Eye upon God (by whatever name you call God). The influence of the Second Order descends upon the Childe moving the Childe to rise above the physical plane. ARN and LIL) which are attributed to that Tree.

An Aire which encompasses the Spheres numbered 1. therefore. This Aire encompasses the Spheres numbered 1. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Malkuth. contained in the Malkuth of the Tree of Life in Hod. and the Moon of Witchcraft. is still an 235 .S: As the Aires are aspects of the Goddess. This is a Great Mystery of Malkuth. The 27th Aire (ZAA). encompassing All. There is no separation between God and man except in the consciousness of man. We now prepare to leave the Aire about the Kether of Malkuth. in turn. God is here manifesting through us. the Sphere must unformulate on the existing plane and reformulate according to the laws of the new plane. but up. We are concerned here with the Moon. They form the Planes or Worlds through which God moves from the perspective of each Sephira. which is so important to learn to rightly equilibrate the energies and organize your Sphere. From this. so the energies may run through harmoniously and the Sphere is prepared for higher initiation. And so we see Yitzirah manifesting our Earth. This Tree is. but in low aspect. An Aire encompassing lower Spheres reveals God in lower planes. we see the Influence of the Supernals and the Holy Third Order descending into Yitzirah. We are concerned here with the Tree of Life in Malkuth. right focus of the Eye on the Love of God and your Angel will assist in setting the Pentagram aright within the Childe’s Sphere. Amen. to provide insight into the Royal Path and Process of Initiation. We are dealing with the “top” of the Tree of Life in Malkuth. We.

Amen. and move in the opposite direction in the Great Circle. And so circumambulation. Additional Commentary: As we move through the Aires. and move to the Aires about the Tree of Life in Yesod. Let this cause the Eye to look not down. Reference is also made to the Pentagram Formula for the First Order. The 28th Aire (BAG). the representative of the Second Order to whom the Childe is to initially pray to for initiation is the Childe’s Holy Guardian Angel. This continues to be the case up the Trees of Life until we come to the Tree of Life in Kether.Initiation. We are dealing with the lowest point on the Yitziratic Hexagram. 5 and 6 reveals God from a Yitziratic perspective. From this. Thus we behold Malkuth as a direct link connecting God and man. The Aires are the Soul of Nature encircling the Male aspects of Creation. They form the Body of God in which the Male aspects manifest. We are God’s hands on Earth. P. so the Aires may be perceived as the Heavens surrounding the Spiritual (Male) manifestations which they reveal. For what is shown here is God’s Presence and Power in the First and the Last Trees. As has been explained in other papers of the Sanctuary. Rather. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Yesod. Our Journey can thus be viewed as one into the Heavens on a progressively more exalted basis. This. the Malkuth of this Tree (named Ygdrasil) contains entire Universe below IT. An Aire which encompasses the Spheres numbered 4. We now move to the Aire around the Spheres numbered 7. This is what is addressed in this paper. journey through the Aires to Godhead. Malkuth will no longer appear as part of any of the Aires which follow in this Return Journey up throu gh the Aires. directly to Kether and the First Aire. This is contained in the Malkuth of the Tree of Life in Yesod. Consider in this regard that a Return Journey up through the 30 Aires to reach Godhead is one “route of travel”. which is truly God’s Kingdom. its role or function is to unite as described. another “route of travel” would be to commence in the Malkuth of the 30th Aire. Movement in any direction within the Great Circle is possible. However. either deosil (clockwise) or widdershins (counter-clockwise). we see that every aspect of the Universe is connected and an expression of that which precedes it.

By rightly focusing the Eye. The Eye is directed upwards to the Mouth of God which speaks of the Covenant to redeem those who lift themselves up to rise above the physical and place the senses and desires in right perspective.) 236 .

The Royal Path of Initiation is before you. This Aire surrounds the Spheres numbered 4. who is further revealed in this Aire as an aspect of Nuit. She is always there with and for you. The Arrow is shot straight up the Middle Pillar by the Childe aspiring for redemption. The lessons here relate both to those of the Paths of Qoph and Ayin. (The Wand of Nuit is described in “Additional Commentary” added at the end of the paper entitled “The Sword and The Caduceus”. as the perspective from Yesod is exalted. The Wand of God progressively manifests within the vessel of the Childe as the Sphere is organized according to the formula of each Plane. Appeal to Her through your heart. There are many Beings of many Planes. as will be shown. who manifests Her and the Son. By doing so. Let every motion strengthen your Sphere. There is an animal within you. opportunities will arise.

The Gods live through you. The Eye is on the Woman in the form of the Daughter. When we have Love. The Will then may be concentrated and directed to its end.

Love sweetens the animal soul and focuses and concentrates the animal will.The 25th Aire (UTI). and is not the Goddess Love?! Love is Venus. Enough cannot be said about the importance of Love in this World and in the Initiation process. Divine Love abides in your Soul.

This is the Mystery of the Childe of Nuit most exalted. We behold God in man. Initiation involves a stripping away of the layers of the self to arrive at the True Self. When we equilibrate. which is foreshadowed by the Mystery of the Childe of Kether who finds the True Self in Selflessness. The path of pleasure which man treads provides short-term gratification but is unrewarding or unsatisfying over the long-term. to Venus and to the Sun. and assists us in attaining a more Universal perspective. But why such Holiness is such an early Aire as TOR?! Are not the Mysteries revealed in the First Order and progressively exalted?! No sooner than we lift ourselves up from Earth do we find ourselves flying. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. Amen. Invoke. as the Childe climbs the Tree of Life seeking the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. to Mercury.

There will be obstacles and ordeals. transcend the physical and notions of personal separateness and find Unity in God. we call energies or forces into the Sphere. we balance and assimilate. which are engines of truth and beauty and turn the Eye to God. equilibrated and experienced with each step. Crushed we are by the weight of this World. The 22nd Aire (LIN). The senses are the chains to the physical world. The work begins with you who you perceive as separate from the rest of the Universe. equilibrate. Being is found in Not-Being. Things must be set right. no soaring in the Womb of the Goddess. Is not all of life a lesson in pain and suffering?! Lift off the bonds of darkness. to the Moon. which involves an absorption and integration of the energies into the Sphere. We look from Earth to the Gods in Heaven. yet before us everywhere is God. the duty will be rightly performed glorifying God. as the Curse of the Fall of Man has confounded man by his senses. and placing your self in God’s service.

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

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

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

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

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

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