Neopaganism is based on the ancient
worldwide religion of Mother Nature.
It is unlikely that much of the
original thought structure truly remains of the ancient worldwide religion of
is no set dogma in Neopaganism as each cell of Nature worshipers devises its
own belief systems and rituals.
These rituals will
be largely dependent on environmental conditions of the environment within
which the cult resides and ritual takes place.
Belief systems will be dependent
on the thought process' and mindset of the members of each unique coven, in
turn, dependent on local Goth.
takes a central role in these groups dogma is modeled more closely on easily
identified aspects of Nature.
Neopaganism springs from outside Abrahamic religious
thought and attempts to free
the female psyche from the psychic bonds of Yahweh.
Neopaganism uses magik ritual to change internal perception through recognition
of unseen aspects and patterns within Nature.
Neopaganism has no use for the complex rituals devised by Ordo Templi Orientis of
Theodor Reuss or the Theosophical Society of
Aleister Crowley to be enacted in a temple setting no different than that of
the typical cathedral.
"Our aim is to gain the inner sight, and we do it
the most natural and easy way. 1954
Gerald Gardner releases Witchcraft Today.
Our opponents' aim is ever to prevent
man and woman from loving, thinking that everything that helps or even permits
them to compassion is wicked and vile.
To us it is natural, and if it
aids the Great Work it is good." - Gerald Gardner
DanceNaked all, the
High Priestess leads the
Dance with Magus, both
hands on her waist, standing behind her. Alternate men and women should do the
same, the High Priestess
leading and they following her in the Dance. The
High Priestess at last
leads them into a right-hand spiral. When the center is reached (and this had
better be marked by a stone), she suddenly turns and dances back, kissing each
man as she comes to him. All men and women turn likewise and dance back, each
man kissing each woman and each woman kissing each man. All in time to music,
it is a merry game, but must
be practiced to be done well. It is most excellent to get people to know each
other at big gatherings.
To Gain the
Sight This cometh to different people in diverse ways. 'Tis seldom
it cometh naturally, but it can be induced in many ways. Deep and prolonged
meditation may do or prolonged
fasting. Of old monks and
nuns obtained visions by long vigils, combined with fasting, flagellation till
the blood came, and other mortifications of the flesh, and so undoubtedly had
visions. In the East it is tried with various tortures, at the same time
sitting in cramped postures, which retard the flow of blood, and these
torments, long and continued, give good results. But in the Craft we are taught
an easier way to intensify the
imagination, at the
same time controlling the blood supply, and this may best be done by using the
Limiting and constraining any of the
senses serves to increase the
concentration of another. Shutting the eyes aids the hearing. So the binding of
the initiate's hands increases the mental perception, while the scourge
increaseth the inner vision.
It is important to work naked from the
start, so it becometh as second nature, and no thought of "I have no clothes"
shall ever intrude and take your attention from the work. Also, your skin being
so accustomed to unconfinement, when power is given off the flow is more easy
and regular. Also, when dancing you are free and unconfined. . . . And the
greatest of all, the touch of the body of your beloved thrills your inmost
soul, and so your body gives out its utmost power; and then it is most
important of all that there is not the slightest thing to divert the attention,
for then the mind must seize and mold the power generated, and redirect it to
the desired end with all the force and frenzy of the imagination.
Naked, tie hands behind back, pull up to small
of back, and tie ends in front of throat, leaving a cable-tow to lead by,
hanging down in front. Arms thus form a triangle at back. For the purpose of
ritual it is good that the initiates be bound firmly enough to feel they are
absolutely helpless but without discomfort.
If the aspirant
complains of pain, the bonds must be loosened slightly; always remember the
object is to retard the blood flow enough to induce a
trance state. This
involves slight discomfort, but great discomfort prevents the
trance state. So the
initiate goeth through it proudly, like a princess, knowing it but serves to
increase her glory. But this can only be done by the aid of another
intelligence and in a circle, to prevent the power thus generated being lost.
Circle, which is the Temple of the
Gods, should be truly
cast and purified, that it may be a fit place for the
Gods to enter.
Mark a Circle nine feet across on the floor with chalk. The best way is
to get a string. Tie 2 loops four foot, six inches apart. Put one loop over a
nail or something in the center. Put chalk in the other and run it round. Have
a bowl of water, a table as an
altar and some salt. Trace the Circle on the lines you have marked out,
starting at the East and returning to the East. Always go round the Circle with
your right hand to the altar.
Put the salt into the water and go round the circle again, sprinkling it to
purify it. Go round the Circle again censing it.
relaxation and helps to build up the atmosphere which is necessary to
suggestibility. Gum mastic, aromatic rush roots, cinnamon bark, musk, juniper,
sandalwood, and ambergris in combination are all good, but patchouli is best of
all. And if you may have cannabis, 'tis better still.
Everyone in the
circle is then sprinkled and censed. Draw an invoking pentacle in the
Air, starting at the top and
going to the lefthand corner, saying, "I summon, and call thee up, O Ye Mighty
ones of the East, to guard the Circle and witness our rites." Then holding the
point of Athame upwards, do the same to the South, West, and North, and return
to the center, to the south of the
altar. Power is latent in the body and may be drawn out and used in various
ways by the skilled. But unless confined in a circle it will be swiftly
dissipated. Hence the importance of a properly constructed circle.
Power exudes from the body; hence you
should be properly prepared. The slightest dirt spoils everything, which shows
the importance of thorough cleanliness. The attitude of mind has great effect,
so only work with a spirit of reverence. A little wine taken and repeated
during the ceremony, if necessary, helps to produce power. Other strong drinks
or drugs may be used, but it is necessary to be very moderate, for if you are
confused, even slightly, you cannot control the power you evoke. The simplest
way is by dancing and singing monotonous chants, slowly at first and gradually
quickening the tempo until giddiness ensues. The scourge is a far better way,
for it stimulates and
excites both body and soul, yet one easily retains control.
woman should bind her man, hands behind back and cable tow to neck. He should
kneel at the altar, and be
scourged with light,
steady, monotonous, slow strokes (the scourge has eight tails and five
knots in each tail). The scourgings are 3, 7, 9 (thrice three), and 21 (thrice
seven) 40 in all. It is not meet to make offerings [scourgings] of less than
two score to the female deification of Nature, for
here be a mystery. The
fortunate numbers be: 3 and 5. For three added to two (the Perfect Couple) be
five. And three and five be eight; eight and five be thirteen; thirteen and
eight be twenty-one. The Fivefold Kiss is called 5, but there are 8 kisses, for
there be 2 feet and 2 knees and genitals and 2 breasts and the lips. And 5
times 8 be two score. Also, fortunate numbers be 3, 7, 8, and 21, which total
40, or two score. For each man and woman hath ten fingers and ten toes, so each
totals a score. And a perfect couple be two score. So a lesser number would not
be perfect prayer. If more are required make it a perfect number, as four score
or six score. Also there be Eight Elemental Weapons.
When all men are
thus "purified," they purify the women in turn. No one may be in the circle
without being thus purified. A man may only be taught by a woman and a woman by
a man, and that man and man, and woman and woman, should never attempt these
Remember, the Circle,
properly constructed, is ever necessary to prevent the power released from
being dissipated. It is also a barrier against any disturbances of mischievous
forces, for to obtain good results you must be free from all disturbances.
Remember that darkness, points of light gleaming amid the surrounding dark,
incense, and the steady passes by a white arm are not stage effects. They are
the mechanical implements which start the suggestions, which later unlocks the
knowledge that it is
possible to obtain the divine ecstasy, and so attain
true knowledge and
communion with the
divine female deification of Nature. When once you have attained this,
ritual is not needed, as you may attain the state of ecstasy at will, but till
then, or if you having attained this yourself, and wish to bring a companion to
this state of joy, ritual is best.
To make the anointing ointment, take
some glazed pans filled half full with grease or olive oil. Put in one sweet
mint, marjoram in another, ground thyme in a 3rd, and it you may have it,
patchouli, dried leaves pounded. Place pans in hot water bath. Stir and cook
for several hours, then pout into linen bags, and squeeze grease through into
pans again, and fill up with fresh leaves. After doing this several times, the
grease will be highly perfumed. Then mix all together and store in a
well-corked jar. Anoint behind ears, throat, armpits, breasts, and womb. Also,
for all ceremonies where the feet are kissed, they should also be anointed.
All tools must be consecrated by a man and a woman,
both as naked as drawn swords; they must be purified, clean, and properly
prepared. The tool should be kept in as close connection as possible to the
naked body for at least a month. When not in use, all tools and weapons should
be put away in a secret place; and it is good that this should be near your
sleeping place, and that you handle them each night before retiring. Do not
allow anyone to touch or handle any of your tools until they are thoroughly
impregnated with your aura; say, six months or as near as possible.
To avoid discovery, let the working tools be as ordinary things
that any may have in their houses. Let the Pentacles be of wax, so they may be
broken at once. The best substances for making tools are those that have once
had life in them.
Thus wood or ivory is
better for a wand
than metal. Virgin parchment is better than manufactured paper for talismans.
And things which have been made
by hand are good, because there is
life in them.
Priestess shall rule her Coven as representative of the female
deification of Nature,
and the High Priest,
Magus, shall support
her as the representative of Yaweh. With compassion and
worship in their hearts they shall raise power from their bodies to give power
to the gods, as has been taught us of old.
For in this way only
may man have communion with the gods, for the gods cannot help man without the
help of men.
Form a mental image of what is
desired, and force yourself to see
that it is fulfilled, with the fierce belief and knowledge that it can and
will be fulfilled, and that you will
go on willing till you force it to be fulfilled. Remember
magical operations are
useless unless the mind can be brought to the proper attitude, keyed to the
The Five Essentials1. The most important
is "Intention": you must know that
you can and will succeed; it is essential in every operation.
Preparation: you must be properly prepared according to the rules of the Art;
otherwise you will never succeed.
3. The Circle must be properly formed and
4. You all must be properly purified, several times if necessary,
and this purification should be repeated several times during the rite.
You must have properly consecrated tools.
Magus: Listen to the
words of the Great mother, who was of old also called among men, Artemis,
Astarte, Dione, Melusine, Aphrodite, Cerridwen, Diana, Arianrhod, Bride, and by
many other names.
High Priestess: "My Law is Compassion unto all
beings. Keep pure your highest ideals. Strive ever towards it. Let naught
stop you or turn you aside. For mine is the secret which opens upon the door of
youth; and mine is the cup of the Wine of Life: and the Cauldron of Cerridwen,
which is the Holy Grail of
Immortality. I am the
Gracious Goddess who gives the gift of Joy unto the heart of Man. Upon
Earth I give the knowledge of the Spirit Eternal, and beyond death I give peace
and freedom, and reunion with those who have gone before. Nor do I demand aught
in sacrifice, for behold, I am the Mother of all things, and
is poured out upon Earth."
Magus: Hear ye the words
of the Star Goddess,
She in the dust of whose feet are the hosts of Heaven, whose body encircleth
High Priestess: "I who am
the beauty of the green
earth; and the White
Moon amongst the Stars; and the
mystery of the Waters; and
the desire of the heart of man. I call unto thy soul: arise and come unto me.
"For I am the Soul of nature who giveth life to the Universe; 'From me all
things proceed; and unto me, all things must return.' Beloved of the Gods and
men, thine inmost divine self shall be enfolded in the raptures of the
infinite. "Let my worship be within the heart that rejoiceth, for behold: all
acts of compassion and pleasure are my rituals; and therefore let there be
Beauty and Strength, Power and Compassion, Honour and Humility, Mirth and
Reverence within you. "And thou who thinkest to seek me, know that thy seeking
and yearning shall avail thee not unless thou know the mystery, that if that
which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it
without thee, for behold; I have been with thee from the beginning, and I am
that which is attained at the end of desire."
Drawing Down the
High Priestess stands in
front of the altar, assumes
Goddess position (arms crossed).
Magus, kneeling in
front of her, draws pentacle on her body with phallus-head
wand, invokes, "I
invoke and beseech Thee, O mighty Mother of all life and fertility. By seed and
root, by stem and bud, by leaf and flower and fruit, by
do I invoke Thee to descend into the body of thy servant and
High Priestess [name]."
The Moon having been
drawn down, i.e., link established,
Magus and other men
give Fivefold Kiss:
(kissing feet) "Blessed be thy feet, that have
brought thee in these ways";
(kissing knees) "Blessed be thy knees,
that shall kneel at the sacred
(kissing womb) "Blessed be thy womb, without which we would
(kissing breasts) "Blessed be thy breasts, formed in beauty
and in strength";
(kissing lips) "Blessed be thy lips, that shall speak
the sacred names."
Women all bow.
High Priestess:" Whenever
ye have need of anything, once in the month, and better it be when the
Moon is full, ye shall assemble
in some secret place and adore the spirit of Me who am
Queen of all Witcheries and Magics. There ye shall assemble, ye who are fain to
learn all sorcery, yet have not won its deepest secrets. To these will I teach
things that are yet unknown. And ye shall
be free from slavery, and as a sign that ye be really free, ye shall be
naked in your rites, both men and women, and ye shall dance, sing, feast, make
music, and compassion, all in my praise. There is a Secret Door that I have
made to establish the way to taste even on Earth the
Elixir of Immortality. Say,
'Let ecstasy be mine, and joy on
Earth even to me, To Me,' For I am
the Gracious Goddess.
I give unimaginable joys on Earth, certainty, not faith, while in life! And
upon death, peace unutterable, rest, and ecstasy, nor do I demand aught in
Magus: "Hear ye the words
of the Star Goddess."
High Priestess: "I
compassion you: I yearn for you: pale or purple, veiled or voluptuous. I who am
all pleasure, and purple and drunkenness of the innermost senses, desire you.
Put on the wings, arouse the coiled splendor within you. Come unto me, for I am
the flame that burns in the heart of every man, and the core of every Star. Let
it be your inmost divine self who art lost in the constant rapture of infinite
joy. Let the rituals be rightly performed with joy and beauty. Remember that
all acts of compassion and pleasure are my rituals.
So let there be
beauty and strength, leaping laughter, force
and fire within you."
Ever remember the promise of
the Gracious Goddess,
"For ecstasy is mine and joy on
Earth" so let there ever be joy in your heart. Greet people with joy, be glad
to see them. If times be hard, think, "It might have been worse. I at least
have known the joys of the Gathering, and I will know them again." Think of the
grandeur, beauty, and poetry of the rites, of the loved ones you meet through
them. If you dwell on this inner joy, your health will be better. You must try
to banish all fear, for it will really touch you. It may hurt your body, but
your soul is beyond it all.
Ever remember, that if you help others it
makes you forget your own woes. And
if another be in
pain, do what you may to distract his attention from it. Do not say "You have no pain!" but if you
may, administer the
drugs which sooth as well as cure. Strive to make them believe they are
getting better. Install joyful thoughts into their inner mind so that it be
always believed. If you give him one of the drugs and then say, "The pain is growing less. Soon it
will be gone," because the pain
goes, the next time you say, "The pain is going," he will
believe you and the pain will
really get less. But
you must ever say so with conviction, and this conviction must come from your
believing it yourself, because you yourself know that if you can fix his mind
so that he believes you, it is true.
Look exactly between their
eyes, looking as if your eyes pierced their heads, opening your eyes as wide as
you may and never blink. This continued gazing oft causes the patient to grow
sleepy. If they show signs of this, say "You are growing sleepy. You will
sleep, you are tired. Sleep. Your eyes grow tired. Sleep." If they close their
eyes, say "Your eyes close, you are tired, you cannot open your eyes." If they
cannot, say "Your arms are tired, you cannot raise them." If they cannot, say
"I am master of your mind. You must ever believe what I tell you. When I look
like this into your eyes you will sleep and be subject to my will," then tell
them they will sleep and wake up refreshed, feeling better. Continue this with
soothing and healing drugs, and try to infuse into them the feeling of
ecstasy that you feel at the
Gathering. They cannot feel it in full, but you can command them to feel what
is in your own mind, and try to concentrate on this
Think joy, think
compassion, try to help others and bring joy into their lives. Children are
naturally easier to influence than grown people. Ever strive to work through
people's existing beliefs. For instance, more than half of the world believe in
amulets. An ordinary stone is not an amulet but if it hath a natural hole in
it, it must be something unusual, so if the patient hath this belief give him
one. But first carry it next your skin for a few days, forcing your will into
it, to cure pain, to feel safe, or against their particular fear, and this
amulet may keep imposing your will when you are absent. The masters of
talismans knew this full well when they say they must be made in a circle, to
avoid distraction, by someone whose mind is on the subject of the work.

8. The Great Rite
(The Great Rite releases enormous power. Power flashes forth from
newly shed blood. The amount of power raised is so great and continuous that
anyone with knowledge can direct and use it; and it is most probable that the
classical and heathen sacrifices were used in the same way. There are whispers
that when the human victim was a willing sacrifice, with his mind directed on
the Great Work and with highly skilled assistants, wonders ensued but of this I
would not speak.)
High Priestess govern
her Coven with justice and compassion, with the help of the advice of the
elders, always heeding the advice of the messenger of the gods, if he cometh.
She will heed all complaints of brothers, and strive to settle all differences
among them, but it must be recognized that there be people who will ever strive
to force others to do as they will. If there be any disputes or quarrels among
the brethren, the High
Priestess shall straight convene the Elders and enquire into the matter,
and they shall hear both sides, first alone, then together, and they shall
decide justly, not favoring the one side or the other, ever recognizing that
there be people who can never agree to work under others, but at the same time
there be some people who cannot rule justly.
Ever remember, ye are the
Hidden Children of the Gods. So never do anything to disgrace them. Never
boast. Never threaten. Never say you would wish ill to anyone. If you or any
not in the Circle speak of the Craft, say, "Speak not to me of such. It
frightens me. 'Tis evil luck to speak of it."
If you would keep a Book
let it be in your own hand of write. Let brothers and sisters copy what they
will, but never let the Book out of your hands, and never keep the writings of
another, for if it be found in their hand, they well may be taken and enjoined.
If your Book be found 'tis clear proof against you alone. If taken keep all
thoughts of the Craft from your mind. Say you had bad dreams; a devil caused
you to write it without your knowledge. Think to yourself, "I know nothing. I
remember nothing. I have forgotten everything." Drive this into your mind. If
the torture be too great to bear, say, "I will confess. I cannot bear this
torture. What do you want me to say? Tell me and I will say it." If they try to
make you speak of the Sisterhood, DO NOT, but if they try to make you speak of
impossibilities, such as flying through the air, consorting with the Christian
Devil, or sacrificing children, or eating men's flesh, to obtain relief from
torture, say, "I had an evil dream. I was not myself. I was crazed." If you are
condemned, fear not. The Sisterhood is powerful. They may help you to escape,
if you stand steadfast, but if you betray them, there is no hope for you, in
this life, or in that which is to come. Be sure, if steadfast when you go to
the pyre, you will feel naught. If the worst comes, and you go to the pyre,
wait till the flames and smoke spring up, bend your head over, and breath in
with long breaths. You will choke and die swiftly, and wake in the arms of the
Goddess. You go but to
Death and what lies beyond, the ecstasy of the
if it be safe, may the Covens meet, in some safe place, for the Great
Gathering. And while there, none shall say whence they come, or give their true
names, to the end that, if any are tortured, in their agony, they can not tell
if they know not. If any break
these laws, even under torture, the Curse of the Goddess shall be upon them, so
they are never reborn on Earth.
And may they remain where they
belong, in the Hell of the Christians.
In the past when we had
power, we could use our Craft against any who ill-treated any of the
Sisterhood, but in these evil times, we may not do so, for our enemies have
devised a burning pit of everlasting fire, into which they say their God
casteth all the people who worship him, except the very few who are released by
their priests' spells and
Masses, and this be chiefly by giving money and rich gifts to receive his
favor, for the Christian God is ever in need of Money.
None shall use
the Craft in any way to do ill to any, howevermuch they have injured us. As
long we obey the Law,
"Harm None" many believe we
exist not. The Law shall still continue
to help us in our plight. No one,
however great an injury or injustice they receive, may use the Craft to do ill
or harm any. But they may, after great consultations with all, use the
Craft to prevent or restrain Christians from harming us and others, but only to
let or constrain them and never to punish, to this end.
to the Law, never accept
Money for the use of the
Craft. It is Christian
priests and sorcerers who accept money selling pardons to let men escape from
You may use the Craft for your own advantage, or for
the advantage of the Craft, only if
you be sure you harm none. Let the Coven debate the matter at length. Only
if all are satisfied that none may
be harmed may the Craft be used. If it is not possible to achieve your ends
one way without harming any,
perchance the aim may be achieved by acting in a different way,
so as to harm none.

website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its
author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside
personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from
reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate
cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on
the human race. Religious
intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices,
religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site
marks the founding of the religion aptly named The Truth of the Way of Life - a
rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no
leap of faith, accepts no
tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones
violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is
already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control
the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world
economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the
elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems.
Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point
of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined precipitously
over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and
more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general
through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been
preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological
operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
