Lytton calls him Adonai in ‘Zanoni,’ and I often use this name in the note-books.

Abramelin calls him Holy Guardian Angel. I adopt this:

2. Because since all theories of the universe are absurd it is better to talk in the language of one which is patently absurd, so as to mortify the metaphysical man.

3. Because a child can understand it.

As Adonai guides me to my True Will

And my Angel’s Knowledge and Conversation,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

"O coffee! By the mighty Name of Power do I invoke thee, consecrating thee to the Service of the Magic of Light. Let the pulsations of my heart be strong and regular and slow!

Amen without lie, and Amen, and Amen of Amen."
