the-cultist:

The Magus or Celestial Intelligencer - a handbook of the occult and ceremonial magic, compiled by English occultist Francis Barrett. Originally published in 1801, The Magus dealt with the subject of natural magic (incl. herbalism, magnetism, numerology), and also served as an advertisement used by Barrett to form a circle of fellow occultists.

Had! The manifestation of Nuit.

The unveiling of the company of heaven.

Every man and every woman is a star.

Every number is infinite; there is no difference.

Help me, o warrior lord of Thebes, in my unveiling before the Children of men!

Be thou Hadit, my secret centre, my heart & my tongue!

Behold! it is revealed by Aiwass the minister of Hoor-paar-kraat.

The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs.

Worship then the Khabs, and behold my light shed over you!

Let my servants be few & secret: they shall rule the many & the known.

These are fools that men adore; both their Gods & their men are fools.

Come forth, o children, under the stars, & take your fill of love!

I am above you and in you. My ecstasy is in yours. My joy is to see your joy.

Above, the gemmèd azure is

  The naked splendour of Nuit;

She bends in ecstasy to kiss

  The secret ardours of Hadit.

The wingèd globe, the starry blue,

  Are mine, O Ankh-af-na-khonsu!

Now ye shall know that the chosen priest & apostle of infinite space is the prince-priest the Beast; and in his woman called the Scarlet Woman is all power given. They shall gather my children into their fold: they shall bring the glory of the stars into the hearts of men.

For he is ever a sun, and she a moon. But to him is the winged secret flame, and to her the stooping starlight.

But ye are not so chosen.

Burn upon their brows, o splendrous serpent!

O azure-lidded woman, bend upon them!

The key of the rituals is in the secret word which I have given unto him.

Excerpt from Liber AL Vel Legis, sub figura CCXX, as delivered by XCIII=418 to DCLXVI - “the Book of the Law”, the central sacred text of Thelema. According to Aleister Crowley, a voice calling itself “Aiwass” dictated the whole of Liber Legis to him over the course of three days in April of 1904. Aiwass was apparently the minister of Harpocrates, or “Horus the Child”.

Crowley described the encounter;

The Voice of Aiwass came apparently from over my left shoulder, from the furthest corner of the room. It seemed to echo itself in my physical heart in a very strange manner, hard to describe. I have noticed a similar phenomenon when I have been waiting for a message fraught with great hope or dread.”
