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 Pentagram teaches that these are presided over by Spirit. whether by using the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation or some other. (2) suffering is inherent in all aggregates (they dissolve) and (3) there is an absence of ego in all aggregates. To begin. The Buddhist’s say. which also involves the awakening of the Chakras. break the “cycle” of reincarnation (so to speak) and recognize the True Nature of your Being.

This is the Nature of the Work encouraged through the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation. By seeing the cause of suffering. the causes of suffering. as attractions or repulsions. Although suffering is a fact of human life. is an issue between you and God. The Sanctuary’s System of Initiation teaches first how to take control of your physical senses. suffering ceases to exist on the Higher Planes. placing desire in proper perspective and tempering our actions according. so the elements of the Childe are consecrated to that Step and prepared for the next Step. 15 . How you attend to the details. This same work is accomplished through the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation. you may bring an end to suffering in your life as you know it. we can bring an end to suffering as merely humans. By attaining to the Higher Planes and exalting your consciousness. Air and Earth. This is through the teachings of the Sanctuary. in the course of Initiation into the Sephiroth and the Paths. 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). Right views arise from realizing that (1) there is an impermanence of all physical and other aggregates (the “animal” is doomed to death). and the way to end suffering by perfect attention and meditation. The teachings of Buddhism may be briefly summarized to assist in recognizing the nature of suffering. May there be an end to suffering for all the Children of Earth. The formula of the Pentagram must be completed at each Step on the Royal Path of Initiation.AN END TO SUFFERING (Insights from Buddhism) Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe Copyright © 2008 Sanctuary of Thoth. suffering appears in two forms. Water. This is done by the “destruction of ignorance” and the “acquisition of right views” in Buddhist terminology. Suffering is caused by desire to move towards things which attract and away from things which repulse.

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

The drawing will assist you in completing the formula of your Sphere for your working. see the Angelic Ring above your head. visualize the Eye in a Triangle upon your brow in the center of your forehead. To help you do this. Use all white spheres at first when embodying the Tree of Life.) Use corresponding colored inks if possible. Assign the elements to the quarters according to the formula employed. which is something to rise through when Rising on the Planes. start in the east. which is formed along the Path of Daleth connecting Chokmah and Binah in the embodied Tree of Life. and move right or left around the circumference of your Sphere according to the formula you are using (given above).

Acknowledge the Steps in your Mind’s Eye and assert your Will to organize your Sphere. Examine your Sphere in your Mind’s Eye.] An alternative visualization would be a Cone of Power emanating from Kether in the embodied Tree of Life and connecting to Chokmah and Binah to form a Conical Hat of Light. illumining your Sphere and its nature. project the elements with your Will to their assigned positions. and reinforcing or reaffirming it during your working by simply looking at it. work and gain experience here on Earth. and do anything else which helps you do what must be done. acknowledge its correspondences. Although there is formula to movement (which will be the subject of future Scrolls). initially pick a direction. To help you connect to this.

Contemplate the direction you are facing and the correspondences to focus the Eye. Then point the right hand forward in the Sign of Benediction. Proceed on. Similarly. yet ever forceful as and when appropriate. which is the focus of your Eye. To project. following the formula you are using.

Take note how a Sign of Projection (also known as the Sign of Horus or the Sign of the Enterer) is given from the center towards each quarter. For those of your familiar with magickal signing. projections may be made or assisted by making the appropriate magickal sign of the element or Sephira in each quarter. and assert your Will to formulate your Sphere in the direction you face. your movement should be poetic and graceful. Whether you use magical tools. bring your right hand in the Sign of Benediction to either your Third Eye or your Heart. in its simplest form. placing the thumb against them. When working with a single element. the sign of each element could made facing the corresponding quarter. which is from the Stele of Revealing and in the Book of the Law.

which you have learned in your prior work. The first step is to organize the elements within your Sphere according to one of the Pentagram formulae. which is the abode of the Holy Guardian Angel. Before proceeding to the Ritual.) 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. Once the Pillars of the Great Tree have formulated within your Sphere. 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. consider also that there is Holy Unity above the Abyss (and relativity below the Abyss). The reason for this is that the Trees are united above the Abyss by the Crown. as the aspirant seeks to attain to the Second Order and the Spiritual Sphere of Tiphareth. Take some time to contemplate this and the floor of your Sphere. When you invoke Spirit. All must be placed in service of Spirit! Let these words ring in your ears at this stage of the Work. (The Yitziratic Hexagrams are used to work directly with the Sephiroth and Paths on the Yitziratic Tree of Life.

The Pentagram Formulae for the Dominis Liminis will assist you in attaining this at the appropriate stage of the work. This is done by a three-step process. Initiation into Spirit must precede this Sephirotic aspect. In the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation. [Additional Commentary: Consider also that the Pentagram is a symbol of the manifest Powers of the All-Father. As a Dominis Liminis.

You will attain a Macrocosmic view of things. as the aspirant seeks to rise through the Veil of Paroketh. which is ever one and can never be divided (as indicated in the Ritual of the Crown). It is not Sephira specific. The Dominis Liminis focuses the Eye first on Spirit and then on the initial work to attain the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. 137 . your perspective of the World and the Universe will change dramatically. The third step is to formulate the Pillars of the Great Tree within your Sphere on an initiated basis at this stage of the work. and that the elements are blind forces through which Divinity moves. it is recommended that you look up the Pillars of the Great Tree and down the Pillars of the embodied Little Tree.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 floor of your Sphere is lifting you up the Tree of Life. Now is the time when all the other Pentagram work comes together to organize the Sphere on an elemental and Sephirotic basis so Spirit may descend in the midst to redeem. The Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel is the Sephirotic aspect. which is to consciously link the source of the Childe’s aspiration to the Macrocosm. consider that the Sephiroth and Paths on the Tree of Life are Divine.

It will be recognized that the process of invocation employs the Formula of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH). The God and Childe will Work as one for the appointed time. prior to performing an Invocation. and praise the Holy Name of the God. 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 Childe will directly interact with the God. see a green light to foster the process. Your Invocation will tend to shape the events which follow. pay close attention to what you receive and experience afterwards. to clearly and succinctly formulate the purpose of the working in a manner which is consistent with the Great Work.The fourth section relates to Earth and the Assiatic Plane. It is also critical to the success of the working that the Eye remain focused on the Great Work to be accomplished until concluded.

The Childe is equipped with the Knowledge and Conversation of His Holy Guardian Angel and the Might to overcome the obstacles necessary to Walk in the Way of True Will. Rites to Purify and Consecrate your Magickal Weapons The approach of the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation is to provide Formulae for Initiation. to assist with the purification and consecration of the Childe to Love and prepare the Childe for the Work to come. to show the Way and tender the true “keys” to the Initiation process. The Childe truly becomes a Soldier of the Great Work. but to this stage of the Work and according to the Elemental Formula of the upper Planes which the Childe has come to experience in the course of the Work. These are not physical things. The Childe of Chesed There are no Magickal Weapons associated with the Work of the Childe of Chesed in the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation.

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

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

188

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

189

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

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

The Law is being established in Chesed by the Word. as the “Scarlet Son”. He is Vau Tetragrammaton. Atu V – The Hierophant. There appears to be a separation from the Supernal Parents. connects Chokmah and Tiphareth. The manifestation of Nuit. This shows the Supernal Father communing with the Son of Tiphareth by way of the Mother. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Daleth. From Her Womb. The One is as adorable as the many. He is a link between the Father and the Mother.

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

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

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

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

198

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

199

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

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

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

The Chalice is the Ancient Symbol of the Triangle with the apex pointed downwards. 206 . The Blade encompasses Ygdrasil. We reveal these Holy Symbols in their most exalted sense in the context of the Thelemic Pantheon. We speak first of the Blade. The Elemental Formula of this Plane is Fire in the North. The Blade is the Ancient Symbol of the Triangle with the apex pointed upwards. though it is the Chalice which precedes the Blade upon High. Water in the West and Earth in the South. It is the Sigil of Water. Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. From the Square of the One.

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.

One form of working is by scrying. Amen. I invoke a Portal to the Path of [name the corresponding Hebrew letter. and assist me in equilibrating the Energies. There are two primary methods of working with a Path. for example “Tau” if working with the Path of Tau].

To scry a Path: 1. 2. and pay close attention to your thoughts and the images which appear on the screen on your mind. 4. it is recommended that you rightly organize your Sphere before commencing the operation (and keep it organized at all times thereafter) to assure the best results. Hold your hand over the Atu (touching it) to “catch” reflections from the Path for as long as you deem appropriate. 230 . Trace the corresponding Pentagram or Hexagram over the Atu. say: 3.

which you traced at the inception of your working. Then return through the doorway which you formulated and projected back to your physical body. but this is unnecessary (though encouraged at least from time to time).

And so we are to open three Aires consecutively to come to an aspect of Godhead. We exist within. We are moved as a point. movement is simple and easy and seems to come from within. and each is part of the One and None (the Qabalistic Zero). open the Gates of Understanding to the Cities of Wisdom. Although each Aire has correspondence to an aspect of the Tree of Life. The Second and 19 th Keys are used in succession to open the 30 Aires. Of these. They are rightly used to herald in 233 . In this way. who is “LA” or Not and whose Being is Not). but first we speak of nature of the First and Second Angelic Keys. 31 of the Gates are opened by rightly making the Calls of the 30 Aires. This is how God expresses Itself through Itself. And so the Point (which is Hadit) is progressively beheld as a Circle (which is Nuit). or so it is said. We begin with the 30 th Aire and end with the First Aire. invoking the Powers of the Male aspects of the Universe. The points are infinite. 31/31 31 Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. and the Mouth of Her Chalice giving Life to Her Beloved Children within. Yet each point is ever part of the Circle. The First Key is a Call of Him. Cast thy Circles thrice about. An account of each Aire is given below. as the Natal Crown is Illumined. There are 48 Gates of Understanding. the Aires extend beyond the Watchtowers of the Universe and encompass or encircle them. and call upon Spirit to Crown the Work of the passing period.AN ACCOUNT OF THE 30 AIRES Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe Copyright © 2009 Sanctuary of Thoth. The Third through 18th Keys are Elemental in Nature. Such is the Womb of Nuit. 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. Such is the embrace of our Lady of the Stars who moves us from without and within. making 31 Keys in total (which is the number of Nuit. rightly used. The Aires are aspects of the Yechidah. All rights reserved. They “unlock” the Crown. and open the Eye to the Work of the coming period. and bring the Childe beyond the Crown to Nuit. The Enochian Angelic Keys. which is the Soul of All.

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

An Aire which encompasses the Spheres numbered 4. but in low aspect.S: As the Aires are aspects of the Goddess. We are dealing with the “top” of the Tree of Life in Malkuth.Initiation. contained in the Malkuth of the Tree of Life in Hod. We now move to the Aire around the Spheres numbered 7. directly to Kether and the First Aire. From this. This continues to be the case up the Trees of Life until we come to the Tree of Life in Kether. We are dealing with the lowest point on the Yitziratic Hexagram. is still an 235 . An Aire encompassing lower Spheres reveals God in lower planes. in turn. journey through the Aires to Godhead. Thus we behold Malkuth as a direct link connecting God and man. We are concerned here with the Tree of Life in Malkuth. We now prepare to leave the Aire about the Kether of Malkuth. As has been explained in other papers of the Sanctuary. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Malkuth. however. The 28th Aire (BAG). which is so important to learn to rightly equilibrate the energies and organize your Sphere. we see the Influence of the Supernals and the Holy Third Order descending into Yitzirah. Consider in this regard that a Return Journey up through the 30 Aires to reach Godhead is one “route of travel”. but up. We are concerned here with the Moon. may effectively serve to move the Sphere through the Planes. Let this cause the Eye to look not down. Our Journey can thus be viewed as one into the Heavens on a progressively more exalted basis. They form the Body of God in which the Male aspects manifest. and move to the Aires about the Tree of Life in Yesod. They form the Planes or Worlds through which God moves from the perspective of each Sephira. to provide insight into the Royal Path and Process of Initiation. From this. For what is shown here is God’s Presence and Power in the First and the Last Trees. Movement in any direction within the Great Circle is possible. Amen. Additional Commentary: As we move through the Aires. The Aires are the Soul of Nature encircling the Male aspects of Creation. God is here manifesting through us. the Sphere must unformulate on the existing plane and reformulate according to the laws of the new plane. its role or function is to unite as described. and move in the opposite direction in the Great Circle. 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. Malkuth will no longer appear as part of any of the Aires which follow in this Return Journey up throu gh the Aires. We are God’s hands on Earth. This is a Great Mystery of Malkuth. As noted in connection with the 30th Aire. This is contained in the Malkuth of the Tree of Life in Yesod. Rather. However. encompassing All. we see that every aspect of the Universe is connected and an expression of that which precedes it. so the Aires may be perceived as the Heavens surrounding the Spiritual (Male) manifestations which they reveal. which is truly God’s Kingdom. This. Reference is also made to the Pentagram Formula for the First Order. the representative of the Second Order to whom the Childe is to initially pray to for initiation is the Childe’s Holy Guardian Angel. and the Moon of Witchcraft. 2 and 3 (as this Aire does) reveals God from an Atziluthic and Briatic perspective. The 27th Aire (ZAA). This Tree is. the Malkuth of this Tree (named Ygdrasil) contains entire Universe below IT. An Aire which encompasses the Spheres numbered 1. P. There is no separation between God and man except in the consciousness of man. This Aire encompasses the Spheres numbered 1. therefore. so the energies may run through harmoniously and the Sphere is prepared for higher initiation. Amen. This is what is addressed in this paper. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Yesod. And so circumambulation. 5 and 6 reveals God from a Yitziratic perspective. either deosil (clockwise) or widdershins (counter-clockwise). We. another “route of travel” would be to commence in the Malkuth of the 30th Aire. And so we see Yitzirah manifesting our Earth.

His True Nature has now been revealed. who is a Male manifestation that in turn reveals Her. As the Sphere is organized according to the formula of the Plane. The Royal Path of Initiation is before you. You simply need to call to Her for insight and guidance. and moves under Their Power which is Hers. Both the Aires and the Tree of Life in Yesod have Feminine qualities. and Ra-Hoor-Khuit is a Being enthroned in Kether as the Hierophant of this New Aeon. This Aire surrounds the Spheres numbered 4. which is found earlier in this book. It is Nuit who is the True Hierophant of this New Aeon. Reference is made to Ra-Hoor-Khuit. She moves you. The 26th Aire (DES). Nuit cries to Her Children to return to Her! She is the Moon most High and in its lowest aspect. opportunities will arise. (The Wand of Nuit is described in “Additional Commentary” added at the end of the paper entitled “The Sword and The Caduceus”. The formulae of the Magickal Planes are like keys to magickal locks. to Heal Her Children.

Your Duty is to Reverse the Curse. However. once the opportunities are presented. The bonds of the Great Curse of the Fall of Man are easily lifted off. Glory and Worship unto the Lord of Force and Fire. There is darkness everywhere. The Yitziratic aspects of the Moon are highlighted in this Aire. The Arrow is shot straight up the Middle Pillar by the Childe aspiring for redemption. There is an animal within you. By doing so. There are many Beings of many Planes. the center tube of the Wand of Prometheus is hallowed to allow the Fire of Spirit to run cleanly through. This is part of the Great Curse. Additional Commentary: For the reasons given in the Account of the 26 th Aire. who is further revealed in this Aire as an aspect of Nuit. By rightly focusing the Eye. Amen. It is She who is truly revealed in the First Aire as Horus. The Wand of God progressively manifests within the vessel of the Childe as the Sphere is organized according to the formula of each Plane. This requires right balance of the Sphere in all directions.) 236 . the Plane is unlocked which allows the energies of the Plane to run through the Sphere. as the perspective from Yesod is exalted. She is in your Soul. Praise. and its organization. She is always there with and for you. The Wand of Nuit is granted to those who return to Her. The Face of Spirit has been unveiled for the Universe to behold. He is a symbol of this New Aeon. She formulates and moves Hadit. The Great Curse is upon all of mankind. Let every motion strengthen your Sphere. This is the Prayer of the Goddess. and step out of the darkness of ignorance and into the Light of Divine Wisdom found on the Path.

The Grand Illusion of the Abyss which separates God and man is beheld. Liberation is just around the corner. with all of its animal desires. The Holy Mother awaits Her wicked little Children who She nourishes with Light and Love. Geburah is Severity. to see if the Childe has the strength to overcome the animal within and perform the Work. All is One. We are One and come from None. The Childe will eventually be redeemed. We are reminded here that the Childe is a Holy Vessel. Who moves you Childe? Is it not God?!

Fulfill the roles which have been appointed for you by fulfilling your Holy Duties to God. There appears to be that which is above and that which is below. However.
