Sub Figvra XI

ooo. This is the Book of the Cult of the Infinite Without.

oo. The Aspirant is Hadit. Nuit is the infinite espansionof the Rose; Hadit is the infinite concentration of the Rood  (Instructionof V.V.V.V.V.).

o. First let the Aspirant learn in his heart the First Chapter of THE BOOK OF THE LAW (Instruction of V.V.V.V.V).

1. Worship, i.e. identify thyself with, the Khabs, the secret Light within the Heart. Within this again, unextended,  isHadit.  This is the first practice of the Meditation (ccxx,I:6 and21).

2. Adore and understand the Rim of the Stele of Revealing.

Above, the gemmed azure is
The naked splendor of Nuit;
She bends in ecstasy to kiss
The secret ardours of Hadit

This is the first practice of Intelligence (ccxx, I:14).

3. Avoid any act of choice or discrimination. This isthe first practice of Ethics (ccxx, I:22).

4. Consider the six and fifty that 50/6=0.12.
o the circumference Nuit.
. the center, Hadit.
1 the unity proceeding, Ra-Hoor-Khuit.
2 the world of illusion.
Nuit thus comprehends All in None.
Also 50+6=56=5+6=11, the key to all Rituals.
And 50X6=300, the Spirit of the Child within.
(Note NFic=72, the Shemhamphorash and the Quinaries ofthe Zodiac, etc.)
This is the second practice of Intelligence (ccxx,I:24,25).

5. The Result of this Practice is the Consciousness ofthe Continuity of Existence, the Omnipresence of the Body of Nuit. In otherwords, the Aspirant is conscious only of the Infinte Universe as a singleBeing. This is the first Indication of the Nature of the Result (ccxx,I:26).

6. Meditate upon Nuit as the Continuous One Resolved intoNone and Two as the phases of her being. This is the second practice ofMeditation (ccxx,I:27).

7. Meditate upon the facts of Samadhi on all planes the liberation of heat in chemistry, joy in natural history,  Anandain religion, when two things join to lose themselves  in a third. This is the third practice of Meditation (ccxx, I:28,29,30).

8. Let the Aspirant pay utmost reverence to the Authority of the A.*.A.*. and follow Its instructions,  and let himswear a great Oath of Devotion unto Nuit.
This is the second practice of Ethics (ccxx, I:32).

9. Let the Aspirant beware the slightest exercvise of his will against another being. Thus, lying is a better  posture thansitting or standing, as it opposes less resistance  to gravitation.Yet his first duty is to the force nearest  and most potent; e.g.he may rise to greet a friend.  This is the third practice of Ethics(ccxx, I:41).

10. Let the Aspirant exercise his will without the least consideration for any other being. This direction cannot be  understood,much less accomplished, until the previous  practice has been perfected. This is the fourth practice of Ethics (ccxx, I:42,43,44).

11. Let the Aspirant comprehend that these two practices are identical.  This is the third practice of Intelligence (ccxx,I:45).

12. Let the Aspirant live the Life Beautiful and Pleasant. For this freedom hath he won. But let each act, especially  of love,be devoted wholly to his true mistress,
Nuit.  This is the fifth practice of Ethics (ccxx,I:51,52,61,63).

13. Let the Aspirant yearn toward Nuit under the stars of Night, with a love directed by his Magical Will, not  merely proceedingfrom the heart.  This is the first practice of Magick Art (ccxx, I:57).

14. The Result of this Practice in the subsequent life of the Aspirant is to fill him with unimaginable joys: to  give himcertainty concerning the nature of the phenomenon  called death, togive him peace unalterable, rest, and  ecstasy.  This is thesecond Indication of the Nature of the Result  (ccxx, I:58).

15. Let the Aspirant prepare a perfume of resinous woods and gums, according to his inspiration.  This is the secondpractice of Magick Art (ccxx, I:59).

16. Let the Aspirant prepare a Pantacle, as follows. Inscribe a circle within a Pentagram, upon a ground  square or ofsuch other convenient shape as he may
choose. Let the circle be of scarlet, the Pentagram black,the  ground royal blue studded with golden stars.  Within thecircle, at its centre, shall be painted a sigil
that shall be revealed to the Aspirant by Nuit herself. And this Pentacle shall serve for a Telesmantic Image, or  as an Eidolon,or as a Focus for the mind.  This is the third practice of MagickArt (ccxx, I:60).

17. Let the Aspirant find a lonely place, if possiblea  place in the Desert of Sand, or if not, a place unfrequented, and without objects to disturb the view. Such are moorlands,  fens,the open sea, broad rivers, and open fields.  Also, and especially,the summits of mountains.  There let him invoke the Goddess as hehath Wisdom
and Understanding so to do. But let this Invocation be that of a pure heart, i.e., a heart wholly devoted to Her,  and lethim remember that it is Hadit Himself in the most  secret place thereofthat invoketh. Then let this serpent  Hadit burst into flame. This is the fourth practice of Magick Art (ccxx, I:61).

18. Then shall the Aspirant come a little to lie in Her bosom.  This is the third Indication of the Nature of the Result (ccxx, I:61).

19. Let the Aspirant stand upon the edge of a precipice in act or in imagination. And let him imagine and suffer  the fearof falling.  Next let him imagine with this aid that the Earth is falling, and he with it, or he from it; and considering the
infinity of space, let him excite the fear within himto the  point of ecstasy, so that the most dreadful dream of falling that he hath ever suffered be as nothing in comparison.  Thisis the forth practice of Meditation (Instruction of  V.V.V.V.V.).

20. Thus having understood the nature of this Third Indication, let him in his Magick Rite fall from himself  into Nuit,or expand into Her, as his imagination may  compel him.  Andat that moment, desiring earnestly the Kiss of  Nuit, let him giveone particle of dust, i.e., let Hadit give  himself up utterly toHer.  This is the fifth practice of Magick Art (ccxx, I:61).

21. Then shall he lose all in that hour.  This isthe fourth Indication of the Nature of the Result.  (ccxx, I:61).

22. Let the Aspirant prepare a lovesong of rapture unto the Goddess, or let him be inspired by Her unto this.  This is thesixth practice of Magick Art (ccxx, I:63).

23. Let the Aspirant be clad in a single robe. An "abbai" of scarlet wrought with gold is most suitable.  This is theseventh practice of Magick Art (ccxx, I:61).

24. Let the Aspirant wear a rich head-dress. A crown ofgold adorned with sapphires or diamonds with a royal blue cap of maintenance,or nemmes, is most suitable.  This is the eighth practice of MagickArt (ccxx, I:61).

25. Let the Aspirant wear many jewels such as he may possess. This is the ninth practice of Magick Art (ccxx, I:61).

26. Let the Aspirant prepare an Elixir or libation ashe  may have wit to do. This is the tenth practice of Magick Art (ccxx,I:63).
