A Ballad of Choosing in White Stains by Aleister Crowley.

“Christ came to me, alone and sorrowful,
And offered me a cross, saying to me,
‘I have great joys to give most bountiful.
Carry this through the world, and when the sea
Of death is past, then is prepared for thee
A house of many mansions.’ My desire
Hid not from me the vileness of his plea:—
‘Thou has a guerdon, is it not for hire?'” [via]

All Creatures

All Creatures” is a track added by Ophwurld in the Hermetic Library audio pool.


“Suddenly a great stillness arises within you, an unfathomable sense of peace; and within that peace is great joy; and within that joy there’s love.”

“All things, bright and beautiful; All creatures, great and small; All things, wise and wonderful”


The Hermetic Library audio pool is an auditory scavenger hunt for sounds and music of a living Western Esoteric Tradition.

Music and performance can be a form of ritual and magick. Works and artists have long been inspired by the ideas of Western Esotericism and Mysticism. This group is to help create a space for sharing, music and other audio, and connecting with artists who feel drawn to these topics and ideas, or, especially, incorporate and manifest ritual and magick in their works.
