So, Mighty Mother! Pure, Eternal Spouse,
Isis, thou Star, thou Moon, thou Mightiest,
Lead my weak steps to thine Eternal House!
Rest my vain head on thine Eternal Breast!
Arise, arise, arise,
Give passage to mine eyes,
Ye airs, ye veils; ye bucklers of the Snake!
I knew the deepest cells,
Where the foul spirit dwells;
Called to the dead, the drowsed, arise! awake!
Their dark profoundest thought
Was less than She I sought,
It was as nought!
Whose poor abode
Is the mean body, prey to all distemperature?
Yet, mortal, in the Light and Way divine,
Gird on the armour of the Holy One:
Seek out the secret of the inmost shrine,
Strong in the might and spirit of the sun.
These are my passions that my feet must tread;
This is my sword, the fervour of my soul;
This is my Will, the crown upon my head.
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.

All day my lover deigned to murder me,
   Linking his kisses in a chain
About my neck; demon-embroidery!
   Bruises like far-off mountains stain
The valley of my body of ivory!
   Then last came sleep.
I wake, and he is gone; what should I do but weep?
