january newsletter

This is going to be a very short newsletter with a very big announcement. Actually, two very big announcements! We have launched the class registration for the class of 2019. The links on the sidebar will take you there, otherwise just visit the store’s curriculum section for the lowdown. Classes begin March 1st, but registration for the 2019 year is open until June 1st

The other big news is the entirety of the full Book of Mirrors in its original HTML form (including our retro cool old splash page) has been uploaded. Visit the forums under Abrahadabra, Book of Mirrors to visit it.

http://abrahadabra.freeforums.net/thread/427/link-book-mirrors

Well, maybe not the ORIGINAL original version. That site is shown in the screenshot below, two years after launch, when we were (very briefly) the Abrahadabra Foundation during the first inception of the splash screen. I’m glad he changed it, TAF is nowhere near as stylin’ as TAI!

Register on the Forums 

Keep in mind, Abrahadabra members, you need a forum account! Many of you have not registered and you will miss out on quite a lot without it. Registrations are handled manually so give it up to 24 hours or just call me at 360-688-1242 to let me know you’re trying to get in and I can take care of it right then and there.

 

La Belle Dame sans Merci
(The Beautiful Woman Without Mercy)
John William Waterhouse
1893

Speke coude he nat, but upon her beautè 
He loked stil, with right a pitous face. 

With that, his heed he tourned at the last 
For to behold the ladies everichon; 
But ever in oon he set his ey stedfast 
On her, the which his thought was most upon. 
And of his eyen the shot I knew anon
Which federed was with right humble requestes.
Than to my-self I sayd, `By god aloon, 
Suche oon was I, or that I saw these gestes.’

Out of the prees he went ful esely 
To make stable his hevy countenaunce; 
And, wit ye wel, he syghed tenderly 
For his sorowes and woful remembraunce. 
Than in him-self he made his ordinaunce, 
And forth-withal com to bringe in the mes;
But, for to juge his most ruful semblaunce, 
God wot, it was a pitous entremes!

After diner, anon they hem avaunced 
To daunce about, these folkes everichoon; 
And forth-withal this hevy lover daunced 
Somtyme with twayn, and somtyme but with oon. 
Unto hem al his chere was after oon,
Now here, now there, as fel by aventure; 
But ever among, he drew to her aloon 
Which he most dredde of living creature. 

Sir Richard Ros, La Belle Dame sans Mercy

#PAS MOI 

At least some French ladies have a very different opinion of much of this “Me Too” stuff that has been rampaging across Hollywood. Seeing a garbage heap of a person like Weinstein get his for cockblocking suitable talent from their rightful place just because they wouldn’t slob all over his knob was satisfying, but many of the accusations are unfair and bordering on libel.

 France has always been a shrugging world weary chain smoking cafe philosopher about something or other for at least a thousand years now, but this one is notable since it touches on some vividly important sexual topics that will define humanity a long time from now – for better or worse. The Atlantic reports on the French #PasMoi anti-movement.

99 very notable French women signed a document that relayed the following:

“Rape is a crime, but trying to seduce someone, even awkwardly, is not. Nor is being gallant a macho aggression.” They continued: “It is the nature of puritanism to borrow, in the name of the supposed collective good, the arguments of the protection of women and of their emancipation to better chain them to their status as eternal victims; poor little things under the control of demonic phallocrats, like in the good old days of witchcraft.”

“We defend the right to seduce, which is indispensable to sexual freedom,” the women continued. “We’re aware enough today to admit that the sex drive is by nature offensive and savage, but we’re also clear-eyed enough not to confuse an awkward pickup with sexual aggression.” The signatories also said they regretted that men had been “punished summarily, forced out of their jobs, for touching a knee, trying to steal a kiss, talking about ‘intimate’ things in a professional dinner or for having sent messages with a sexual connotation to a woman who didn’t reciprocate his affections.”

Not quite Aleister Crowley, but bold, brave, and more than a little “Thelemic” though we hate the moniker. In the words of the little beast:

“I want none of your faint approval or faint dispraise; I want blasphemy, murder, rape
, revolution, anything, bad or good, but strong.” – Aleister Crowley

And just when you thought it could not get more weird, Margaret Atwood, you know, the author of the massively pro-lesbian pro-woman dystopian horror story The Handmaiden’s Tale?

Christians Re-iterate That They Hate the Tarot with a Passion. Us: “This is Fine.”

A bunch of Christians are freaked out because other Christians are trying to convert people with “Destiny Cards” which “Draw on the Power of Christ” to predict the future. Other Christians are alarmed, because reasons, and tarot cards are bad. We’re just glad we don’t have to live in their heads.

19,000-lb Space Station Plummeting to Earth Soon. Thanks, China. 

The unmanned space lab named Tiangong-1 is expected to crash back down to Earth at some point in March. China reportedly lost control of the lab nearly two years ago, in June of 2016. The Chinese government later released an estimate that predicted Tiangong-1 would come down at some point in late 2017. The vague guess has led experts to conclude that the country’s space agency has lost all ability to direct the crashing station’s course or know where it will land. Very unprofessional.

How America’s National Parks Became Hotbeds of Paranormal Activity

A lot of people are going missing in America’s National Forests, and nobody is tracking them. Vice News reports:

“Arras told her father that she wanted to photograph a nearby lake. It wasn’t terribly far, just over a bluff. He declined to accompany his daughter, 14 at the time, but an elderly man from their group would tag along. At some point, the 77-year-old man grew tired, and sat down to rest. Arras, seemingly determined to reach the water, trekked onward.

Back at the camp, the group’s tour guide remembered noticing her from afar. She was “standing on a rock about 50 yards south of the trail.” According to a summary of her official cold case file, that was the last time anyone saw Arras—or the last time anyone is known to have seen her. She vanished that day, without a trace, leaving only her camera lens behind.”

The OTO Amends its By-Laws

Last year the single most…something…piece of news to come out of the OTO was the declaration that they were going to institute anti-discrimination by-laws. In January their first news was that they had indeed instituted those anti-discrimination by-laws after a period of deliberation. Their second order of business was a declaration that they were officially okay with weed. Because an organization that was radicalized by a flaming bisexual who wrote Diary of a Drug Fiend needs to really make sure no homophobes set up shop in their organization, and that they are on the right side of history now that the weed train has…left the station a long time ago. Right? Keep up the incredible groundbreaking innovation fellas…

True Detective Season 3 is to Explore Ozarks’ Occult Scene

Season 2 was a little bit of  a drag at times, but those of us who were drawn in by the intense, dark and innovative first season which explored a ultra-dark storyline weaving in black witchcraft, druidry, pedophilia and pitting it against the intense Matthew Mcconaughey are always going to be willing to give this HBO series another chance. 
      The writer of the entire show will be making his directorial debut, so we’re hoping that’s a good thing. Den of Geek has an extensive article on the upcoming Season 3.

special considerations and protocols on the use and reproduction of the twinstar

The upcoming curriculum announcement due in a few days will have more information on which mirrors are permitted physical presence on a student’s altar, according to grades (currently we only have one accessible grade that applies to the vast majority of our members, so my Magisters can ignore this. 

First, a surprise. The entirety of the Book of Mirrors has been uploaded in its original form and format in order to keep our new students busy, and to address a few deficiencies in our curriculum. Even more exciting news about a huge new data release can be found in the thread. TAI-members only access. 

http://abrahadabra.freeforums.net/thread/427/link-book-mirrors

It has come our my attention that some students might be unclear when and how they might safely use the tools that we have lying around here at TAI. The simple answer I have for you all, is when in doubt, ask – and a few of you who will join us in the future will probably need to doubt a little more  than you already do, if you are to avoid being taken for a fool. The extreme trepidation exhibited by a few of you is often well founded, and it’s one of the reasons why I responded to one member’s concerns by posting my own personal journal detailing the possible extremity of what we refer to as ignition. I am also extremely appreciative whenever someone takes the time to follow proper etiquette and asks me for permission to reproduce one or another mirrors. I am often able to grant these requests and there are very few mirrors we have restrictions on, usually based on the advanced nature of the technology inherent in the image. This post will deal with one of those mirrors that requires special consideration – the TwinStar. The TwinStar comes in several dozen different forms. One of them, a very carefully chosen form, is included in analog print form with the first year curriculum and made available to self guided students who wish to work independently (non-curriculum members). 
      We do not grant permission to any member to use the TwinStar above and beyond the meditations available on the site without prior authorization:  either from Abrahadabra itself or from necessity itself, in eons to come where there is no Abrahadabra Institute, or this order is just a distant memory. This is a more recent decision at TAI based on decades of experience.
       We cannot be held responsible for the fallout for failing to attend to this first mandate concerning the mirrors. We warn people all the time that they are not to be treated frivolously but it has become apparent after much completely unnecessary bloodshed and suffering that we have not enunciated this well enough for it to be taken seriously.
      We do occasionally release TwinStar mirrors, but these are always produced with the highest level of ability and precision, and always on the finest giclee process and paper available. A shortage of available prints does not mean one is justified in creating one for oneself. The last open selection in the catalogue raisonne was in December. Certain mirrors, such as the TwinStar and Four Elemental Worlds, or the TwinTrees, were unavailable, even during this special event, due to their special nature. The Four Elemental Worlds and Koshas TwinStar may only be created at the behest of the TwinStar itself, on rare occasions, and it decides who it goes to. 
       Permission to wear the TwinStar, in bronze or 10K gold is granted immediately following successful completion of TAI’s third year testing. After that point you may purchase them at cost in the desired material, once per year. This was mandated by the Magister Ouroboros 729 himself, before his death. 14K and 24K gold are not permitted as a material as that are too soft and would end up becoming distorted over time, which is unacceptable for such a holy image.
      At the time of your death they may be buried with you or given in your will to another suitable party (anyone past year three testing,) or melted down, or returned to the Abrahadabra Institute where they will be kept, with your name on them, forever.
      Occasional other permissions, for more specialized applications or creation of the TwinStar in other formats, in the past, for those with enough etiquette to ask the creator, has been granted very rarely to a few individuals, in order that they might use the TwinStar for one or another purposes agreed upon between us to be mutually beneficial. Even these individuals were warned that their dharma would be accelerated, and they really needed to think carefully about the decision.
      Even I was not permitted to wear the TwinStar until my fifth year under m1thr0s, as he was worried about several issues I might face without proper preparations. It was only after several scheduled observations between the world during multiple entheogenic sessions in various positions on the Tree of Life that was permitted to wear it. I  was not allowed to access high-res, printable files until my second year when it was made clear that I understood the importance of maintaining the physical perfection of the form. Unsurprisingly we hold students to the same standards.
      This brings us to another point. Creating the TwinStar with anything less than digital tools is not recommended, since it’s very hard to control the physical perfection of the image in traditional mediums. It has been done before of course – there are a number of examples of the TwinStar in our archives on drafting paper using pen and ink that are nearly indistinguishable from the “real” thing, that were created by the Magister Ouroboros 729 before digital drafting tools were made available to the public. Even with digital tools, students are advised to be very careful in reconstructing these mirrors on their own. 
      A 3D file of the image of the TwinStar was created by friend of the Institute after extensive back-and-forth dialogue between m1thr0s and one of the friends of TAI. This is the same file that will be used to create your TwinStar pendant upon graduation of the third year of study. It is pixel-perfect and quite a stunning piece of jewelry. For his merit he was awarded one of two framed kaostar-003.ai prints, the Black Akasha Edition, the only two that exist in the world to this day.

As an example of what we are talking about here though, at the time of its creation, the original file the 3D artist had made and sent to us alongside the request was imprecise, squashed, not at all the beautiful and elegant TwinStar. It was only due to the fact that he wrote us asking for permission to use m1thr0s’ design in a casting that we were able to tell him he was about to create something that wasn’t the TwinStar at all. This would have been a disaster for him if he had not come to us, as a deformed TwinStar is extremely dangerous, and by his own admission he only had a very small amount of money to put towards the fee for the casting. 
       TAI is not an institution  separate from the TwinStar itself, much as the flag of the United States of America is considered inseparable from the nation itself. Most people can’t seem to understand that, but when did the understanding of people ever really matter when it came to the matter and business of universe? All noticeably imperfect TwinStars must be destroyed. Like the flag, any TwinStars that must be destroyed should be burned in a solemn ritual. The same goes for the Hidden Diamond, Abrahadabra Grid, or any other magickal mirror that we have and use around here. 
      Despite the fact that peoples’ lives were being destroyed over their presumptuousness and easy familiarity with the master, the TwinStar, few people made the connection between their foolish (if unintentional) irreverence and easy familiarity with a hyper intelligent class of beings light years ahead of them in evolution. It’s not like I want people to blow themselves up. I’d much rather be left with a friend or someone who was actually useful to the star agenda. Life goes on and so does the train that is this work. I can’t afford to get off of it for any and every passenger that falls off from their own foolishness. 
       And just on a personal note, aside from all of the real consequences – do whatever you wish at TAI – but do not presume that I take kindly to my husband’s work being treated as a hotel buffet that one may do with as you wish. I thought that I had seen the last of it as we wiped the slate clean from the last round of Abrahadabra Forums – where every remarkably profound essay by the master was followed up on with inane “me too!” posts, excitedly squirting out whatever popped into their heads, rock crystals in the shape of the TwinStar, ugly copycat variant colors of special TwinStar editions m1thr0s and I released (of my Solstice gift no less,) or other mildly interesting garbage.
      The rest of us who understood that it wasn’t all about producing a lot of noise amounting to very little were forced to ignore these inanities for the sake of forum harmony, and we focused on the original conversation as best we could until the anvil hit these morons. I don’t give a damned if this offends anyone. What I have found out over the years is if a person acts like low-class trash, they probably are low-class trash everywhere else in the universe.
      You are not in competition with any of the material here, with m1thr0s 729, or me, or anyone else within The Abrahadabra Institute. The only way you could hope to be in competition with me is if you achieved ignition, and then you would see how fucking stupid that idea is.  Your only hope and wish should be to understand what is going on with the Body of Light and its Mastery. Once that happens, all of those idiotic notions of competition will vanish.
      The goal here is to always work in perfect harmony to the ultimate goal: Perfection itself. While there will be disagreements and fighting due to the lofty nature of the work and its importance to Mankind, there will never be any room for competitions of any kind. 
      Being able to wear the TwinStar, to be allowed access to possess forbidden mirrors only granted to those who won their way through the ordeals of our order, and bear the title, Mutational Alchemist, is a very high honor and achievement.
      The TwinStar is not a trinket, a toy or a pretty design. It is an intelligence of the loftiest order, far and above anything anyone on Earth has yet experienced in their everyday, common grimoires, practices and religions. There is nothing stronger, in this world or the next. Treat it with the respect and tribute that it is due and it will lift you up. Mistreat it, fail to make good on your word, and disparage its messengers and allies and you will be in a world of hurt. It does not, as far as I can tell, differentiate between intentional harm and foolish ignorance – much. “All fools despise.” as the book said. Crowley was not aware of it as far as I can tell and this is unsurprising – he didn’t have the clearance to know about it. We do not fetishize Crowley around these parts.
      The TwinStar is also, as I and Magister 729 have discussed countless times before, a weapon of the highest caliber. The only thing stopping the intelligence it represents from vaporizing you and reclaiming its atoms from you is its own intense desire to help you. It doesn’t have a sense of humor about anyone who dares to fuck around with any of its own servants, which makes it just about the best friend a Magus can make in this universe, and as far as I can tell, and the next. 
      So no, you may not wear the TwinStar. You may not make pictures out of it – whether out of rocks, or pixels or plants or crayon. It doesn’t belong to you, for starters, and you have not earned that right. The few TwinStar images we have released were released at the behest of the TwinStar itself, and they find themselves into the hands of the right people. Nobody will be punished for disobeying this mandate. I will not kick you out of TAI, and I will not make a big deal out of it, although you may find me less than pleased. Our mirrors have a way of policing themselves and they are much more efficient and far reaching than I could ever be, so there is no need to belabor the point beyond this guide. 
       Some of our members, I realize, as I have been contacted by them before, may be living such miserable lives that they would give anything to have a superior intelligence rework their life in order that you might attain some semblance of happiness, or maybe they’re on their deathbed and want the assurance of something better (and longer lasting) than Buddy Jebus Heaven, “I Give Up Plox” Nirvana or whatever else people are peddling from the Afterlife foodtruck these days. For these I can only say: Do What You Will. In these cases one should contact me so that I can fast track you into alignment with the TwinStar. There are ways to do this. It isn’t always pretty, and it’s often nerve wracking, but occasionally, it is the only real solution in certain dire situations…

important memberships ruling: ex-freemasons no longer permitted to join TAI

Effective immediately, ex-freemasons are no longer permitted entrance into TAI. There will be no changes or allowances to this rule, with the exception of the individuals with us already. As well as this, anyone who withheld this information from us is fine, as long as you applied for membership prior to 1/11/2018.

 

I hope everyone enjoyed a fun Samhain or at least an uneventful one. I love this time of year and believe it or not, New Mexico does have four distinct seasons, as one can see from the leaves in the garden pic below taken from the patio our half acre lot in downtown Gallup.

      I’d like to welcome our new members this past month and remind them that if they have any questions or need assistance they should e-mail me at abrahadabrainstitute@gmail.com or visit us on our public Discord chat. Remember that I need to know your username in Discord in order to greenlight you into the private members-only area. Any random person can idle invisible indefinitely in the public area until we ban them, which is why I ban usernames which seem to have run out of things to talk about.  If your name is NOT green (or blue for moderators) in Discord, you cannot see the private chatrooms and should not expect your conversation in the general chatroom (Apadana) to be private. The Discord chat is full of interesting chats, photos of TAI including our equipment and people, so it’s well worth a visit.

Also a huge thank you from all of us to En Ma Kai who has been fortifying our chatroom with some major upgrades, including a superintelligent robot and some additional security measures. He understands The Abrahadabra Institute and what we are all about. While we are small, officially, we already have attracted some amazing minds to the little pocket of reality we have carved out here and I expect that to grow even more.

The Da’ath Hack 

I was forced to re-release the Da’ath Hack article by m1thr0s, slated for inclusion in the important Abrahadabra: The Anatomy of the Body of Light 7-volume series, due to the fact that some members have no experience with any kind of banishing technique. So, might as well start them on the best, most up to date banishing method ever devised.

The Sexes: via Bigrammaton to Tetragrammaton

The Abrahadabra Institute’s take on gender studies and gender issues is definately way out there, but mathematically and logically tight in its arguments. Turns out the progressives are right about many things, but not all. 
     People have been asking me about the real gender sexes and bigrammaton for a little while now, and while all of the data is already right there in the bigrams, both ternary and binary, that will allow astute scholars to figure (at least some of) it all out; it seems I can never write enough words to assist in the task of unveiling what all of these charts and mirrors actually mean.

Japanese Demon Festival Terrifies Kids

After watching the video below, you might ask how this is not child abuse, but how else are future therapists going to earn a living? Kidding aside, the festival started after a mysterious “demonic” mask washed up out of the ocean. The demon is called “Paantu,” etymologically similar in structure to the Chung Kuo creation god “P’an Ku” who also has a devilish appearance as a dwarfish figure with two horns. Curiously, the Coast Salish tribes in the Pacific Northwest have similar tales corresponding to sacred masks which they are still in possession of to this day. They are sometimes referred to as the “masks that came from the ocean” as they were discovered on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest. Japanese culture and Salish culture share a lot of similarities and although no DNA research has been done it’s theorized that American Indians immigrated from Asia. Only hair from virgins is permitted to be used on the Salish masks. In 1994 I was asked by our family friend, the daughter of the chief of the Tulalip tribe to donate my long hair after deciding to go with a pixie haircut, to a mask that needed to have its hair replaced. The dance in which the masks emerge every spring is called the “Black Paint Dance” which is eerily similar to the appearance of these Japanese demons which are painted black…see the link to the Dangerous Minds article below.

Actual Vikings think Racist pseudo-Vikings are Morons

When it comes to Odin and Thor, there isn’t much more that can lend your opinion authority than actually living in Reykjavik and speaking a language that isn’t English. The Atlantic (yes, The Atlantic) reports on Hilmar Hilmarson, a high priest of the old Nordic faith popularly called “Asatru” and qualifies as such an authority. He finds the America Asatru racists obnoxious and “horrifying.” We can’t remember a time when the nonsensical mish-mash of old Norse mythology in America was ever not full of racist idiots and nerdy doughboys who can’t research their way out of a paper bag. Iceland is preparing to revive a temple to Odin June 2018, so let’s hope their ideology will influence ugly Americans to align more closely with ancient beliefs, at least.

Shamanism

Cricket tournament competitor Dinesh Chandimal of Sri Lanka claims that Shamanism helped him beat Pakistan this week. 

Elle reports, Paris Jackson, a rising star on the fashion modelling circuit, claims she is a Shaman in training who is going to help save the Great Barrier Reef.  That’s nice dear. Meanwhile, outside of la-la land, scientists have concluded there’s only one way to save the Great Barrier Reef, and it doesn’t include flying all over the world in a fuel-guzzling jet to model clothes.

http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/03/there-s-only-one-way-save-great-barrier-reef-scientists-conclude

Another set of scientists have devised a life-support system for the reef, which will buy it some time while we get the technology we need to replace carbon emission systems.

https://www.cnet.com/news/help-mother-nature-save-the-great-barrier-reef/

Environmentalism is a major focus for Shamanism but the real solution to this entire mess is for humanity to attain to its natural inheritance as stars. Once we get into space every other sacrifice nature has made will be worth it – both in her eyes and in our future, as our survival ensures that these natural wonders can be replaced with sufficient genetic technology. The obsession with the peculiarities and intricacies of micro-managing nature is disturbing, to say the least, when man has completely let its inheritance as the embodiment of consciousness stars completely fall to the wayside. I know there are dark times to come and no one, literally no one – not even enough to justify me or The Abrahadabra Institute continuing its work –  is looking in the direction of the way out. So the future is grim and it’s likely going to just get grimmer until humans wake up to what they are. The O.T.O. has failed, the Golden Dawn has failed, and the only bright light in this world at the moment is science and technology itself. Even that is under attack by ignorant and stupid neo-luddites who could end up exacerbating the situation so dangerously that we could be facing permanent extinction. 
       The Earth knows exactly what she is doing, and why, and humans are at the heart of everything she desires for her future.

Israeli Company Finds a Way to Tackle Plastic Problem in World’s Oceans

So, who still doesn’t think advanced technology and laissez-faire capitalism beats neo-ludditism when it comes to enviromental solutions? Last I checked, even the hippest urban hipster hippy uses plastic products on their Kombucha beverage, much of which still isn’t easily recyclable. Until now.

Just from personal experience girls – never trust anyone who coats you with the whole “goddess” flattery. It never ends well. A pedophile in Spain uses fake e-mails and her gullibility to gain access to her 12 year old daughter who he then repeatedly raped in a weird tale explained by Euro Weekly News. Pending the trial he faces 11 years and the mother has lost custody. Amazingly, this time it had nothing to do with Thelema or the Illuminates of Thanateros.

November is the month dedicated to men’s health, nicknamed Movember (men’s November.) Anyone with fathers, brothers, husbands, boyfriends and sons can find an easy excuse to celebrate the symbol of Movember by growing a mustache or sporting mustache swag, the official symbol of Movember and the Movember Foundation.
       20% of all proceeds this month from The Abrahadabra Institute store (including memberships) will go directly to the Movember foundation! Visit their informative website for insights into how you can become aware of and help eliminate common yet preventable suffering, illness and death facing our boys and men. Often, this can be done by just reaching out to loved ones in your life already. 
      The heavy expectations placed on either of the sexes in our society are not limited to hurting women, they hurt men too, which is why feminism was always about relieving the burden of both sexes. Feminists, have no fear…Movember is one of the few men’s charity groups out there that isn’t connected with the Men’s “Rights” Movement – even if they have tried to claim it in the past. It also doesn’t attack the problems facing the male gender from the dangerous and false pretense that advocating for the human rights of one group somehow takes away the human rights of another group (also known as insanity.) The rigid expectations of men to be stereotypical providers, muscular strongmen and constant heroes in every situation has lead to an unhealthy and unsustainable situation that affects everyone.
       A lot of the time men themselves have been so deeply ingrained with wrongheaded and unhealthy concepts of what is expected of them it can lead to all kinds of unnecessary stress, without them ever becoming aware of what it is that is causing the pain. 
      Homo sapiens sapiens is a complex animal and that the sexes are not cut and dried –  and we can prove it with math and geometry as discussed in the gender article a few weeks back. We can’t force ourselves to be something that we are not – it just leads to a whole lot of unhappy, suicidal and sick monkeys. Achieving Completion and Perfection will require a lot of adjustments to our problematic species, and if that means abandoning these stale concepts of masculinity – so be it.
“You have such a kind heart. Such a true spirit. You are so wise and so full of knowledge. If only you would let others see all these wonders in you. I know these things because I know you the best out of anyone. I truly love you and I know your true love for me also. You may be able to fool others with your strong front, but you cannot fool me.”
Mandodari, wife of Ravana, the Ramayana


 “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!”

Liber al vel Legis: Nuit, speaking to a masculine counterpart

Trans-tigridian snake god symbol, Ningishzidda, by m1thr0s 729

 

“Hero, …… beloved of holy An, …… born in the shining great mountains, lord …… with sparkling eyes, with the attractiveness of a young man, great hero, the king’s right arm on the battlefield, Lord Ninĝišzida, your praise is sweet. They praise you in song. Hero, as you wander on the earth, Ninĝišzida, beloved of An, through you the early flood occurs, and Enki rejoices at you. Through you fine grains are in the fields, and …… rejoices at you. …… head held high, Lord Ninĝišzida. You ……, Lord Ninĝišzida. You extend ……, and you stretch out your claws. Lord Ninĝišzida, your praise is sweet, …….”

– ETCSL translation : t.4.19.3 A hymn to Ninĝišzida (Ninĝišzida C), Oxford

Nu! the hiding of Hadit. Come! all ye, and learn the secret that hath not yet been revealed. I, Hadit, am the complement of Nu, my bride. I am not extended, and Khabs is the name of my House. In the sphere I am everywhere the centre, as she, the circumference, is nowhere found.  Yet she shall be known & I never.

 – “Had” The consort of Nuit (Kemetic Nwt or Nut)

Upon a time while my mind was meditating on the things that are, my thought was raised to a great height, while the physical senses of my body were held back—just as are the senses of men who are heavy with sleep after a large meal, or from fatigue of body.

I thought I heard a Being more than vast—in size beyond all bounds—called out my name and say: “What wouldst thou hear and see, and what hast thou in mind to learn and know?”

“And I said: “Who art thou?”

He answered: “I am Shepherd of Men, Mind of all-Masterhood; I know what thou desirest and I am with thee everywhere.”

And I replied: “I long to learn the things that are, and comprehend their nature, and know God. This (I said) is what I desire to hear.”

He answered me: “Hold in thy mind all thou wouldst know, and I will teach thee.”

And with these words His aspect changed; and straightway, in the twinkling of an eye, all things were opened to me. And I saw a limitless Vision: all things turned into Light—sweet, joyous Light. And I became transported as I gazed….”
