The Deeper Symbolism of Freemasonry from The Meaning of Masonry by Walter Leslie Wilmshurst.

“It is absurd to think that a vast organization like Masonry was ordained merely to teach to grown men of the world the symbolical meaning of a few simple builders’ tools, or to impress upon us such elementary virtues as temperance and justice:—the children in every village school are taught such things; or to enforce such simple principles morals as brotherly love, which every church and every religion teaches; or as relief, which is practised quite as much by non-Masons as by us; or of truth which every infant learns upon its mother’s knee.” [via]

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

“Then I perceived the stars to reflect a single sun—
Not burning suns themselves, in furious regular race,
But mirrors of midnight, lit to remind us of His face.
Thus I beheld the truth: ye are stars that give me light;
But I read you aright and learn I am walking in the night.
Then I turned mine eyes away to the Light that is above you:
The answering splendid Dawn arose, and I did not love you.
I saw the breaking light, and the clouds fled far away:
I was the resurrection of the Golden Star of Day.
And now I live in Him; my heart may trace the years
In drops of virginal blood and springs of virginal tears.” [via]

A Religious Bringing-Up in The Gate of the Sanctuary from The Temple of the Holy Ghost (Collected Works, Vol I) by Aleister Crowley.

“WITH this our ‘Christian’ parents marred our youth:
‘One thing is certain of our origin.
We are born Adam’s bastards into sin,
Servants to Death and Time’s devouring tooth.
God, damning most, had this one thought of ruth
To save some dozens—Us: and by the skin
Of teeth to save us from the devil’s gin—
Repentance! Blood! Prayer! Sackcloth!
This is truth.'” [via]

Lifted

 

Lifted (Mat Zo Remix)” by Tritonal ft. Christina Soto from Lifted

“You
You made my heart move
Don’t ask me how it felt they won’t believe me

But now
The shimmer’s gone somehow
Luster fades and gives way to truth … la la la lifted

Love can’t stay on a higher ground
The fall from grace may not make a sound
Just pull me close never let me down

I want a love that’s lifted

The truth is there in loss that have retraced
But I’m not scared to part ways anymore
What’s the use?
Searching for love when you’re afraid
Doing it all to make sure your heart stays …

Love can’t stay on a higher ground
The fall from grace may not make a sound
Just pull me close never let me down

I want a love that’s lifted”

The hierophant’s words are the prophet’s, forsooth;

His voice in the silence is whispering truth!

With the masks of the cherubs all looking on,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

Black Magic is Not a Myth in Articles by Aleister Crowley.

“The ‘Black Mass’ is a totally different matter.

I could not celebrate it if I wanted to, for I am not a consecrated priest of the Christian Church.

The celebrant must be a priest, for the whole idea of the practice is to profane the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Therefore you must believe in the truth of the cult and the efficacy of its ritual.” [via, also]
