Building the Legions of Spirits
Hear Thou me My Mighty Voice
I raise my wand
I establish a bond,
I raise my sword
I am a Lord
I am a Magician that commands the spirit
a robe I wear it, my Oath I bear it,
I raise my cup
I am beyond corrupt
the incense that is mist
as I raise my Disk,
my spirit is balanced,
I am a magician of talents,
In the Sacred Name of Tahuti,
I command the spirits to do their Duty,
Spirits Giant I evoke from the lands,
they arise from the sea, they arise from the sands,
Monster-Spirits unchained and free,
In Name of Tahuti they shall obey me,
I evoke thousands of invisible Monster-Spirits who obey,
whatever I will, be it night or day,
Hear my Voice!
Hear my Voice!
I command the spirits by will and choice,
I am the center of my circle and balanced here,
a magician that is beyond fear,
Come forth from thy Dwelling Place,
for I am a Magician of Holy Grace,
from underground and from the sky,
And abrahadabra I once again cry,
from caves and from forests too,
from starry abode or sky that's blue,
from swamp and lake,
they arise and awake
and from every land,
they come and obey my will,
from under the sea and over the hill,
Hark, they surround me now,
I hear them squeal, I hear them growl,
I am your Master and King,
and now this bell I strike and ring,
gather yourselves in rank and grade,
and know the command by my magick blade,
that I command you to protect and to serve,
with fearless strength and unrivaled nerve,
let the spirits here touch this blade,
let them not vanish, let them not fade,
you will swear an Oath to be obedient to me,
I give you greater purpose to exist and be,
The Law of Θελημα you'll establish on earth,
pay homage to will, protect divine birth,
you will swear to obey my sacred command,
or I'll send you back to a burning land,
For I am a Conqueror of a Royal line,
Magician & exorcist the world is mine,
For I am the Son of the Sun aflame with power,
Hear my commands this magick hour,
In the Name of Ra-Hoor-Khuit who sits upon the Throne of Ra
In the Name of Tahuti awakened in Ba,
I command my Armies of Spirits to do my will,
I feel the energy, I feel the thrill,
In the name of Ra-Hoor-Khuit I raise my Wand,
I command the Spirits, a Holy bond,
I Command Thee,
to send me, riches, love and powers unique,
to find those treasures that I solemnly seek,
go forth to Duty, go forth to be,
as fast as the Wind you shall obey me!
In the Name of Θελημα I am Magician to my fiery core ,
Go forth into the world and delay no more,
License to Command
And now I Command unto thee, all spirits attracted to the magick of this Circle, I send them forth into the world to bring me jewels and gold and riches so that my Kingdom shall be established on earth. This I Command, for I am master of the forces of matter.
This I Command for I am magician & exorcist and I Command this in the Name of the Mighty and Powerful, Ra-Hoor-Khuit who Sits upon the Throne of Ra.
Hear Thou Me, O Spirits that have felt the energy of my Circle, for I am the mighty and terrible one, who hath the power to reach out to heaven or hell, and enforce my Command by the Curses and the Blessings that have been bestowed upon me by my skill with the ancient art. Hear me, and obey, for I command this to be so.
(I have rewritten the original License to Depart from the Goetia, as a consequence of realizing that the magick isn't really being manifested completely by the formula as it is written in its pages. In order to properly build a Hierarchy of Spirits that command the magician, and fulfill the words in the Book of the Law, "the slaves shall serve" one must align these spirits that have been attracted to your magick to something more pragmatic than "letting there be peace be between thee and me". Therefore the "License to Depart" in the Goetia may be too Taoistic for a Thelemite at a certain stage of his magical work, and what is really needed is a "License to Command" as written above.) Yes, try this magick, and I think you will feel much more attuned to the type of magical universe that has to be willed for open pragmatic manifestations.)
Thelemic License to Depart
And now I
thee all spirits that have
been attracted to the energy of this circle, hear thou me,
for I am magician & excorcist and master of the forces of
I command thee, o invisible spirits, depart unto thine
habitations and abodes and let there be peace between thee
and me, and be thou ever ready to come whensoever thou art
invoked and called.
Hear thou me, in the Name of Ra-Hoor-Khuit I will make war if I deem it necessary. Hear thou me, in the Name of Nuit, shall I proclaim peace if I deem it to be done.
Hear thou me, o invisible spirits that have wandered to the outskirts of my circle, be thou friendly toward me for I am a Magician who knoweth the same Gods as thee, true worshiper of the Highest is my name!
(This is a License to Depart that I occasionally use, or see my License to Command which is used as preliminary for the development of a Hierarchy of Spirits. Note the difference in the formula, and execution from the License to Command. Note the link to the License to Command at the bottom of this page.)
The Call to the Path of Darkness
Written by David Bersson
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law
In the normal course of the Path, without any particular text to guide the magician, there comes a time in every Magician's life where a crossroads of decision must be made whether or not to adhere to the Path of Darkness or of Light. How subtle, are these spirits of Saturn that they entice you to such shadow perspectives disguised as random number. How careful must the Magician be not to be caught within the snare of their averse, uncivilized hooks. Such a call to the path of darkness is merely the inertia of matter manifested. A kabbalist might explain it as the Path of Tau slowing the process of growth from Malkuth to Yesod. Other systems have identical parables, only with different symbolic explanations.
In our system, we have just that text which will unveil this shrine of basic elements and give us the answers we need to avoid the Path of evil. We have a perfect cure for this dis-ease of spirit that has polluted the path of the unwary. We call this the equilibration of the pairs of opposites, and its sublime, yet simple formula is laid down in our text named Liber Tzaddi.
We of Θελημα meditate carefully on the concept of averse and upright, of Yin and Yang, of black and white, and other opposites to balance them within our being to achieve a sparkling, clean spring water of a perception that retains the balance of clear, objective, pragmatic reality. In short, we have our head in the Heavens and our feet in the hells.
Liber Tzaddi is a most valuable tool, indeed! This genius of a text actually assists the unwary pilgrim in his or her crusade on the Path and prepares his being for the Temple of Nuit as explained in detail in the Book of the Law.
For consider of this, that for every possibility that is manifested in the aggregate of experience we have assimilated shall give us perspective on the next experience we travel toward on the Path. The Hindoos, even with the sickness of their dogma, occasionally hit an insight on the nail and exclaim, "the lengthening of the ligam is one with the yielding of the yoni". Here in the West, we much more cleanly express the insight simply stating, "Had, the manifestation of Nuit". Nuit being infinite possibility and Had being the point event of assimilated experience. Nuit is, as everybody knows, the Egyptian Goddess of the Stars being a much more advanced form of Infinity than "Pan" or "Ain" as the Greeks and the Jews struggled to describe it. It is such a wonder how in our system, symbolism piles upon symbolism, an intricate weave of insights that lead to a multitude of schools of thought, none of them in any apparent contradiction to themselves. Do all roads lead, then, to Boleskine and Cairo, in this sense? No doubt, but some arrive at the door to the Gate as a Hermit, some as Lover and some as a Man of earth. Any of them can be Hierophants or keepers of the secret wands.
We might state that the purpose of the "method of science" in our system is mainly fourfold. First, to bring back all the secrets of magick from the past by careful research and experimentation. Second, to unlock the secrets of the Book of the Law. Third, to carefully avoid superstition to build its terrorist attack on our technique of magick. And fourth, to actually develop techniques in magick that have never existed before.
We of Θελημα are not on an evil path. It is stated in the Book of the Law that the evil ones shall be cast away. In order that the "knowledge goes aright" and we proceed in a business like manner, which we consider proper, we use the method of science to assure ourselves that we do not become lost in some delusionary world of false elite occultism.
Nevertheless, we do not stop with a study of the speed of light. For we are also interested in scientifically creating a formula to understand the speed of darkness. Isn't it time the universities created an academic structure that does not ignore what is under the darkness of the stone?
I say this to all you in your dusty world of intellectual snobbery.
Roll away the stone.
Yes, shall we now study what crawls in view from the darkness?
Love is the law, love under will
