0. In the name of the Lord of Initiation, Amen.
1. I fly and I alight as an hawk: of mother-of-emeraldare my mighty-sweeping wings.
2. I swoop down upon the black earth; and it gladdensinto green at my coming.
3. Children of Earth! rejoice! rejoice exceedingly; foryour salvation is at hand.
4. The end of sorrow is come; I will ravish you awayinto mine unutterable joy.
5. I will kiss you, and bring you to the bridal: I willspread a feast before you in the house of happiness.
6. I am not come to rebuke you, or to enslave you.
7. I bid you not turn from your voluptuous ways, fromyour idleness, from your follies.
8. But I bring you joy to your pleasure, peace to yourlanguor, wisdom to your folly.
9. All that ye do is right, if so be that ye enjoy it.
10. I am come against sorrow, against weariness, againstthem that seek to enslave you.
11. I pour you lustral wine, that giveth you delightboth at the sunset and the dawn.
12. Come with me, and I will give you all that is desirableupon the earth.
13. Because I give you that of which Earth and its joysare but as shadows.
14. They flee away, but my joy abideth even unto theend.
15. I have hidden myself beneath a mask: I am a blackand terrible God.
16. With courage conquering fear shall ye approach me:ye shall lay down your heads upon mine altar, expecting the sweep of thesword.
17. But the first kiss of love shall be radiant on yourlips; and all my darkness and terror shall turn to light and joy.
18. Only those who fear shall fail. ;th;Those who havebent their backs to the yoke of slavery until they can no longer standupright;them will I despise.
19. But you who have defied the law; you who have conqueredby subtlety or force; you will I take unto me, even I will take you untome.
20. I ask you to sacrifice nothing at mine altar; I amthe God who giveth all.
21. Light, Life, Love; Force, Fantasy, Fire; these doI bring you: mine hands are full of these.
22. There is joy in the setting-out; there is joy inthe journey; there is joy in the goal.
23. Only if ye are sorrowful, or weary, or angry, ordiscomforted; then ye may know that ye have lost the golden thread, thethread wherewith I guide you to the heart of the groves of Eleusis.
24. My disciples are proud and beautiful; they are strongand swift; they rule their way like mighty conquerors.
25. The weak, the timid, the imperfect, the cowardly,the poor, the tearful --- these are mine enemies, and I am come to destroythem.
26. This also is compassion: an end to the sickness ofearth. A rootingout of the weeds: a watering of the flowers.
27. O my children, ye are more beautiful than the flowers:ye must not fade in your season.
28. I love you; I would sprinkle you with the divinedew of immortality.
29. This immortality is no vain hope beyond the grave:I offer you the certain consciousness of bliss.
30. I offer it at once, on earth; before an hour hathstruck upon the bell, ye shall be with Me in the Abodes that are beyondDecay.
31. Also I give you power earthly and joy earthly; wealth,and health, and length of days. Adoration and love shall cling to yourfeet, and twine around your heart.
32. Only your mouths shall drink of a delicious wine--- the wine of Iacchus; they shall reach ever to the heavenly kiss ofthe Beautiful God.
33. I reveal unto you a great mystery. Ye stand betweenthe abyss of height and the abyss of depth.
34. In either awaits you a Companion; and that Companionis Yourself.
35. Ye can have no other Companion.
36. Many have arisen, being wise. They have said [Seekout the glittering Image in the place ever golden, and unite yourselveswith It.]
37. Many have arisen, being foolish. They have said,[Stoop down unto the darkly splendid world, and be
wedded to that Blind Creature of the Slime.]
38. I who am beyond Wisdom and Folly, arise and say untoyou: achieve both weddings! Unite yourselves with both!
39. Beware, beware, I say, lest ye seek after the oneand lose the other!
40. My adepts stand upright; their head above the heavens,their feet below the hells.
41. But since one is naturally attracted to the Angel,another to the Demon, let the first strengthen the lower link, the lastattach more firmly to the higher.
42. Thus shall equilibrium become perfect. I will aidmy disciples; as fast as they acquire this balanced power and joy so fasterwill I push them.
43. They shall in their turn speak from this InvisibleThrone; their words shall illumine the worlds.
44. They shall be masters of majesty and might; theyshall be beautiful and joyous; they shall be clothed with victory and splendour;they shall stand upon the firm foundation; the kingdom shall be theirs;yea, the kingdom shall be theirs. In the name of the Lord of Initiation.Amen.
