In Nomine Babalon, CXIV

CXIV

The brine of the sea is the salt of Her tears

As man has forgotten for two thousand years

That the earth is sacred, his holy matron!

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

Pax Hominibus Bonae Voluntatis by Aleister Crowley in International, Dec 1917.

“I think it will be clear that in order to read the man’s mind, you must put away from you anything like emotion.

“LISTEN again to thine own voice within thee. Is not Hadit the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star? Is not He Life, and the giver of Life? And is not therefore the knowledge of Him the knowledge of Death? For it hath been shown unto thee in many other places how Death and Love be twins.” [via]

Egyptian Magic in Egyptian Magic by Florence Farr.

“This was the highest work of magic, the Spiritual Alchemy or the Transmutation from human Force to Divine Potency. As is said by the great Iamblichus, in section iv., chapter ii., of The Mysteries:

Egyptian Magic in Egyptian Magic by Florence Farr.

“We may now perceive dimly how the Egyptians conceived the seed of the Tree of Life-Eternal to be implanted in the heart of each man or woman born on earth; how it can wither and fade; how it can be cultivated until the man becomes either an Evil Demon or a God.” [via]
