Assist me to erect the ancient altar,
at which ye yore blows tomorrow; gone but among us all, worshiped;
The great altar of all things.
For in times of old, woman was the altar.
Thus was the altar made and placed,
the sacred place was the point
within the center of the circle.
Fever and heat
As we have of old been taught that the point within the
center is the origin of ALL things.
Therefore should we adore it;
therefore whom we worship we also invoke.
O Circle of Stars,
Whereof Pan is but the younger and elder brother,
Marvel beyond imagination, soul of infinite space,
Before whom time is ashamed,
the mind bewildered, and the understanding dark,
Not unto thee may we attain unless thine image be love.
Therefore by seed and root, and stem and bud,
and leaf and flower and fruit do we invoke thee?
O Queen of Space, O Jewel of Light,
Continuous Once of the heavens;
Let it be ever thus
that men speak not of thee as One, but as None;
and let them not speak of thee as ALL,
Since thou art continuous. as we all
For hour art the point within the Circle, which we adore;
the point of life, without which we would not be.
And in this way truly are erected the holy twin pillars,
in beauty and in strength were they erected
to the wonder and glory of all men and beast
Altar of mysteries manifold,
the sacred circle’s secret point
thus do I sign thee as of old
with kisses of my lips anoint. Raven
Open for me the secret way,
the pathway of intelligence,
beyond the gates of night and day,
beyond the bounds of time and sense.
behold the mystery alight,
the five true points of fellowship,
here where the Lance and Grail unite
and feet, and knees, and breast, and lip.
