And as all things were from One, by the meditation of One, so from this One Thing come all things by adaptation. Its father is the Sun, its mother is the Moon, the wind carried it in its belly, the nurse thereof is the Earth.

Now let the woman be girt with a sword,

She bows down to no man, submits to no lord!

Her strength is her armor, her father the sun,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

The sun’s own flame buring inside Your heart

With the fiery malice of Hades’ black art;

Belching out liquid fire, a tide of crimson!

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

"Defensive pessimism is seen in individuals who see their problems as insurmountable. THey are easily discouraged and indulge in self-pity, resulting in resentment and stifled self-expression. To some degree, Millennialism, Apocalypticism, or obsession with ‘Earth Changes’ or persecution for believing in a non-traditional form of worship fall into this category. (Tiphareth/Sun)"

"According to the best demonstration of the astrologers as we find it summarized in the book of the Constellations of the Stars, these movements are three: one according to which the star moves along its epicycle; a second according to which the epicycle moves together with the whole heaven in concert with that of the Sun; a third according to which that whole heaven moves, following the movement of the starry sphere, from west to east, one degree every one hundred years."

The charioteer in his armor of gold

Drawn without reins by the sphinxes four-fold!

Blazing in glory, the sign of the sun,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

"I come as the Ambassador of the Lord of Lords to avenge the cause of Osiris in this Place. Let the Eye consume its tears. I am the Guide to the House of Him Who dwelleth in His Treasures. I travel on high, I tread upon the Firmament, I raise a flame with the lightning which mine eye hath made, and I fly forward towards the Splendours of the Glorified in the presence of the Sun, who daily giveth Life to every man who walketh about the habitations of the earth."

"The beatitude of the Justified KHOU was by no means purely contemplative. The inscription on the obelisk of Queen Hatshepsu (sometimes spelled Hatshepset) speaks of them as holding converse with the ungenerated souls during the one hundred and twenty years that the latter circle round the Sun. They had the power to take all imaginable forms, or to move hither and thither as they pleased."

My Pilgrimage" by The Cobalt Season [also] from But I Tell You

they follow me
into the back roads
and the sunset comes to tuck me in

and the road becomes my home
if I need one
and the Earth becomes my bed
my light, the Sun”
