All of the theological teachings regarding the Life after Death – heavens and hells – contain some truth, but none contain all the truth.

Before the beginning there was nothing—no earth, no heavens, no stars, no sky: only the mist world, formless and shapeless, and the fire world, always burning.

Neil Gaiman, Norse Mythology

In Nomine Babalon, XCII


My head in the heavens, my feet below hell;

Your love flowing through me, I’m under your spell!

Your magickal energy flows on and on,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

The Lesbian Hell in The Gate of the Sanctuary from The Temple of the Holy Ghost (Collected Works, Vol I) by Aleister Crowley.

“One far above the heavens crowned alone,
Immitigable, intangible, a maid,
Incomprehensible, divine, unknown,
Who loves your love, and to high God hath said:
‘To me these songs are made!’
So in a little from the silent Hell
Rises a spectre, disanointed now,
Who bears a cup of poison terrible,
The seal of God upon his blasted brow,
To whom His angels bow.” [via]
