The Fall of the Dice

Don’t make the mistake:

It’s the fall of the dice.

Nothing’s true chaos.

All by a cause

and all die will fall.

A mirage for the eyes.

A trick on the mind.

Nothing will ever happen without coming down the chain.

And no occurring chronology will ever be the same.

Sooner or later you end from where you came.

There is no great.

There is no small.

It is the mind that cause it all.

(Trifling or great.)

The web, it spreads.

The web entwines.

Like family trees

But backwards, exponentially.

With this in mind — do drift upon …

The journey of a grain of sand.

A shared ancient breath, within you lungs.

The speck of dirt which graced your hand.

Erosion and forming of lands.

And every little thing you can.

Observe as it unfolds.

— D.

D. writes that “The Fall of The Dice” was “inspired by the Hermetic Law of Cause and Effect.” You can find D. over at Day of Dissonance and Grace Notes.

In Nomine Babalon added to Received Wisdom

With permission from the author, I’ve added a PDF downloadable of the entire In Nomine Babalon book which you might be interested in checking out. This is the newest addition to the Received Wisdom section of the library where you will find a selection of received holy books or transmissions given to various individuals during magical workings. The book is currently available only in PDF on the site, but I’ll work on adding it in a nice HTML format.
