Three holds the key of all hidden magic, creator he of the Halls of the Dead; sending forth power, shrouding with darkness, binding the souls of the children of men; sending the darkness, binding the soul force; director of negative to the children of men. Lord, he, of Life to the children of men. Light is his body, flame is his countenance; freer of souls to the children of men. Five is the master, the Lord of all magic— Key to The Word that resounds among men. Six is the Lord of Light, the hidden pathway, part of the souls of the children of men. Seven is he who is Lord of the vastness, master of Space and the key of the Times.
Eight is he who orders the progress; weighs and balances the journey of men. Nine is the father, vast he of countenance, forming and changing from out of the formless. Meditate on the symbols I give thee. Keys are they, though hidden from men. Reach ever upward, 0 Soul of the morning. Turn thy thoughts upward to Light and to Life.
Find in the keys of the numbers I bring thee, light on the pathway from life unto life. Seek ye with wisdom. Turn thy thoughts inward. Close not thy mind to the Flower of Light. Place in thy body a thought-formed picture. Think of the numbers that lead thee to Life. Clear is the pathway to he who has wisdom. Open the door to the Kingdom of Light. Pour forth thy flame as a Sun of the morning. Shut out the darkness and live in the day. Take thee, 0 man! As part of thy being, the Seven who are but are not as they seem.
Opened, O man! Have I my wisdom. Follow the path in the way I have led. Freely I give to thee of my wisdom gathered from the time and space of this cycle; mas- ter of mysteries, Sun of the morning, Thoth the teacher of men, is of ALL. Long time ago, I in my childhood, lay 'neath the stars on long-buried Atlantis, dreaming of mysteries far above men. Then in my heart grew there a great longing to conquer the pathway that led to the stars. Year after year, I sought after wisdom, seek- ing new knowledge, following the way, until at last my Soul, in great travail, broke from its bondage and bounded away.
Free was I from the bondage of earth- men. Free from the body, I flashed through the night. Unlocked at last for me was the star-space. Free was I from the bondage of night. Now to the end of space sought I wisdom, far beyond knowledge of finite man. Far into space, my Soul travelled freely into infinity's circle of light. Strange, beyond knowledge, were some of the planets, great and gigantic, beyond dreams of men.
Yet found I Law, in all of its beauty, working through and among them as here among men. Flashed forth my soul through infinity's beauty, far through space I flew with my thoughts. Rested I there on a planet of beauty. Strains of harmony filled all the air. Shapes there were, moving in Order, great and majestic as stars in the night; mounting in har- mony, ordered equilibrium, symbols of the Cosmic, like unto Law. Many the stars I passed in my journey, many the races of men on their worlds; some reaching high as stars of the morning, some falling low in the blackness of night.
Each and all of them struggling upward, gaining the heights and plumbing the depths, moving at times in realms of brightness, living through darkness, gaining the Light. Know, 0 man, that Light is thine heritage. Know that darkness is only a veil. Sealed in thine heart is brightness eternal, waiting the moment of freedom to conquer, waiting to rend the veil of the night.
Some I found who had conquered the ether. Free of space were they while yet they were men. Using the force that is the foundation of ALL things, far in space constructed they a planet, drawn by the force that flows through the ALL; condensing, coalescing the ether into forms that grew as they willed. Outstripping in science, they, all of the races, mighty in wisdom, sons of the stars. Long time I paused, watching their wisdom. Saw them create from out of the ether cities gigantic of rose and gold. Formed forth from the primal element, base of all matter, the ether far flung.
Far in the past, they had conquered the ether, freed themselves from the bondage of toil; formed in their mind only a picture and swiftly created, it grew. Forth then, my soul sped, throughout the Cosmos, seeing ever, new things and old; learning that man is truly space- born, a Sun of the Sun, a child of the stars. Know ye, O man, whatever form ye inhabit, surely it is one with the stars. Thy bod- ies are nothing but planets revolving around their central suns. When ye have gained the light of all wisdom, free shall ye be to shine in the ether— one of the Suns that light outer darkness— one of the space-born grown into Light.
Just as the stars in time lose their 15 brilliance, light passing from them into the great source, so, O man, thy soul passes on- ward, leaving behind the darkness of night. Formed forth ye, from the primal ether, filled with the brilliance that flows from the source, bound by the ether coalesced around, yet ever it flames until at last it is free.
Lift up your flame from out of the darkness, fly from they night and ye shall be free. Travelled I through the space-time, knowing my soul at last was set free, knowing that now might I pursue wisdom. Until at last, I passed to a plane, hidden from knowl- edge, known not to wisdom, extension beyond all that we know. Now, O man, when I had this knowing, happy my soul grew, for now I was free. Listen, ye space- born, list to my wisdom: know ye not that ye, too, will be free. List ye again, 0 man, to my wisdom, that hearing, ye too, might live and be free. Not of the earth are ye— earthy, but child of the I nfinite Cosmic Light.
Now, to ye, I give knowledge, freedom to walk in the path I have trod, showing ye truly how by my striving, I trod the path that leads to the stars. Hark ye, 0 man, and know of thy bondage, know how to free thyself from the toils. Out of the darkness shall ye rise upward, one with the Light and one with the stars.
Fol- low ye ever the path of wisdom. Only by this can ye rise from below. Know ye, 0 man, that all space is ordered. Order and balance are the Law of the Cosmos. Follow and ye shall be One with the ALL. He who would follow the pathway of wisdom, open must be to the Flower of Life, extending his consciousness out of the darkness, flowing through time and space in the ALL.
Deep in the silence, first ye must linger until at last ye are free from desire, free from the longing to speak in the silence. Conquer by silence, the bondage of words. Abstaining from eating until ye have conquered desire for food, that is bondage of soul. Then lie ye down in the darkness. Close ye your eyes from the rays of the Light. Center thy soul-force in the place of thine consciousness, shaking it free from the bonds of the night.
Place in thy mind-place the image thou desireth. Picture the place thou desireth to see. Vibrate back and forth with thy power. Loosen the soul from out of its night. Fiercely must thou shake with all of thy power until at last thy soul shall be free. Mighty beyond words is the flame of the Cosmic, hanging in planes, unknown to man; mighty and balanced, moving in Order, music of harmonies, far beyond man. Speaking with music, singing with color, flame from the beginning of Eternity's ALL.
Spark of the flame art thou, 0 my children, burning with color and living with music. List to the voice and thou shalt be free. Knew ye not man, that out of the darkness, Light shall flame forth, a symbol of ALL. Pray ye this prayer for attaining of wisdom.
Atlantis and the Atlanteans (The Emerald Tablets and Other Texts)
Pray for the coming of Light to the ALL. Lift up my fire from out of the darkness, magnet of fire that is One with the ALL. Child of the Light, turn not away. Draw me in power to melt in thy furnace; One with all things and all things in One, fire of the life- strain and One with the Brain. Ever through space ye may seek wisdom, bound not by fetters forged in flesh. Onward and upward into the morning, free flash, 0 Soul, to the realms of Light. Move thou in Order, move thou in Harmony, freely shalt move with the Children of Light. Seek ye and know ye, my Key of Wisdom. Thus, 0 man, ye shall surely be free.
Aeon on aeon thou existed in beauty, a shining through the darkness of night. Mighty in power, ruling the earth-born, Lord of the Earth in Atlantis' day. Master, He, from a cycle beyond us, living in bodies as one among men. Not as the earth-born, He from beyond us, Sun of a cycle, advanced beyond men. Know ye, 0 man, that Horlet the Master, was never one with the children of men. Far in the past time when Atlantis first grew as a power, appeared there one with the Key of Wisdom, showing the way of Light to all.
Showed he to all men the path of attainment, way of the Light that flows among men. Mastering darkness, leading the Man-Soul, upward to heights that were One with the Light. Divided the Kingdoms, He into sections. Ten were they, ruled by children of men. Upon another, built He a Temple, built but not by the children of men. Out of the Ether called He its substance, moulded and formed by the power of Ytolan into the forms He built with His mind.
Atlantis and the Atlanteans : (the emerald tablets and other texts)
Mile upon mile it covered the island, space upon space it grew in its might. Black, yet not black, but dark like the space-time, deep in its heart the Essence of Light. Swiftly the Temple grew into being, moulded an shaped by the Word of the Dweller, called from the formless into a form.
Builded He then, within it, great chambers, filled them from forms called forth from the Ether, filled them with wisdom called forth by His mind. Formless was He within his Temple, yet was He formed in the image of man. Dwell- ing among them yet not of them, strange and far different was He from the children of men. Chose He then from among the people, Three who became his gateway. Chose He the Three from the Highest to become his links with Atlantis.
Messengers they, who car- ried his councel, to the kings of the children of men. Brought He forth others and taught them wisdom; teachers, they, to the children of men. Placed He them on the island of Undal to stand as teachers of Light to men. Each of those who were thus chosen, taught must he be for years five and ten.
Only thus could he have understanding to being Light to the children of men. Thus there came into being the Temple, a dwelling place for the Master of man. I, Thoth, have ever sought wisdom, searching in darkness and searching in Light. Long in my youth I traveled the pathway, seeking ever new knowledge to gain. Until af- ter much striving, one of the Three, to me brought the Light. Brought He to me the commands of the Dweller, called me from darkness into the Light. Brought He me, before the Dweller, deep in the Temple before the great Fire.
There on the great throne, beheld I, the Dweller, clothed with the Light and flashing 18 with fire. Down I knelt before that great wisdom, feeling the Light flowing through me in waves. Heard I then the voice of the Dweller: "0 darkness, come into the Light. Long have ye sought the pathway to the Light. Each soul on earth that loosens its fetters shall soon be made free from the bondage of night. Forth from the darkness have ye arisen, closer approached the Light of your goal. Here ye shall dwell as one of my children, keeper of records gathered by wisdom, instrument thou of the Light from beyond.
Ready be thou made to do what is needed, perserver of wisdom though the ages of darkness that shall come fast on the children of men. Live thee here and drink of all wisdom. Se- crets and mysteries unto thee shall unveil. Give thou of thy Light that I may be free. Aye, when o'er Atlantis the ocean waves roll, holding the Light, though hidden in darkness, ready to come when e'er thou shalt call.
Go thee now and learn greater wis- dom. Followed I then the path to the star planes, followed I then the pathway to Light. Deep into Earth's heart I followed the pathway, learning the secrets, below as above; learning the pathway to the Halls of Amenti; learning the Law that balances the world. To earth's hidden chambers pierced I by my wisdom, deep through the Earth's crust, into the pathway, hidden for ages from the children of men.
Unveiled before me, ever more wisdom until I reached a new knowledge: found that all is part of an ALL, great and yet greater than all that we know. Searched I Infinity's heart through the ages. Deep and yet deeper, more mysteries I found. Now, as I look back through the ages, know I that wisdom is boundless, ever grown greater throughout the ages, One with Infinity's greater than all. Light there was in ancient Atlantis. Yes, darkness, too, was hidden in all. Fell from the Light into the darkness, some who had risen to heights among men. Proud they be- came because of their knowledge, proud were they of their place among men.
Deep delved they into the forbidden, opened the gateway that led to below.
The Emerald Tablets of Thoth
Sought they to gain ever more knowledge but seeking to bring it up from below. He who descends below must have balance, else he is bound by lack of our Light. Opened, they then, by their knowledge, pathways forbidden to man. Saw He the Atlanteans, by their magic, opening the gateway that would bring to Earth a great woe.
Fast fled His soul then, back to His body. Up He arose from His Agwanti. Called He the Three mighty messengers. Gave the commands that shattered the world. Deep 'neath Earth's crust to the Halls of Amenti, swiftly descended the Dweller. Called He then on the powers of the Seven Lords wielded; changed the Earth's balance.
Down sank Atlantis beneath the dark waves. Shattered the gateway that had been opened; shattered the doorway that led down below. All of the islands were shattered except Unal, and part of the island of the sons of the Dweller. Preserved He them to be the teachers, Lights on the path for those to come after, Lights for the lesser children of man. Take all your records. Take all your magic. Go thou forth preserving the records until in time Light grows among men. Light shalt thou be all through the ages, hidden yet found by enlightened men.
Over all Earth, give WE ye power, free thou to give or take it away. Gather thou now the sons of Atlantis. Take them and flee to the people of the rock caves. Fly to the land of the Children of Khem. Into the spaceship I brought all my records, brought the records of sunken Atlantis. Gathered I all of my powers, instruments many of mighty magic. Up then we rose on wings of the morning. High we arose above the Temple, leaving behind the three and Dweller, deep in the Halls 'neath the Temple. Down 'neath the waves sank the great Temple, closing the pathway to the Lords of the Cycles. Yet ever to him who has knowing, open shall be the path to Amenti.
Fast fled we then on the wings of the morning, fled to the land of the children of Khem. There by my power, I conquered and ruled them. Raised I to Light, the children of Khem. Deep 'neath the rocks, I buried my spaceship, waiting the time when man might be free. Over the spaceship, erected a marker in the form of a lion yet like unto man. There 'neath the image rests yet my spaceship, forth to be brought when need shall arise.
Know ye, O man, that far in the future invaders shall come from out of the deep. Then awake, ye who have wisdom. Bring forth my ship and conquer with ease. Deep 'neath the image lies my secret. Search and find in the pyramid I built. Each to the other is the Keystone; each the gateway that leads into Life.
Follow the Key I leave behind me. Seek and the doorway to Life shall be thine. Seek thou in my pyramid, deep in the passage that ends in a wall. Use thou the Key of the Seven, and open to thee the pathway will fall. Now unto thee I have given my wisdom. Now unto thee I have given my way. Follow the pathway. Solve thou my secrets. Unto thee I have shown the way.
Hark to the knowledge of powers forgotten. Long, long ago in the days of the first man, warfare began between darkness and light. Men, then as now, were filled with both darkness and light; and while in some darkness held sway, in others light filled the soul.
Aye, age old is this warfare, the eternal struggle between darkness and light. Fiercely is it fought all through the ages, using strange powers hidden to man. Adepts have there been filled with the blackness, struggling always against the light; but others there are who, filled with brightness, have ever conquered the darkness of night.
Where e'er ye may be in all ages and planes, surely ye shall know of the battle with night. Long ages ago, the Suns of the Morning, descending, found the world filled with night. There in that past time began the struggle, the age old battle of darkness and Light. Many in that time were so filled with darkness that only feebly flamed the light from the night. Some there were, masters of darkness, who sought to fill all with their darkness; sought to draw others into their night. Fiercely withstood they, the masters of bright- ness; fiercely fought they from the darkness of night. Sought they ever to tighten the fetters, the chains that bind man to the darkness of night.
Used they always the dark magic, brought into man by the power of darkness; magic that enshrouded man's soul with darkness. Banded together in as order, Brothers of Darkness, they through the ages, antago- nists they to the children of men. Walked they always secret and hidden, found yet not found by the children of men. Forever they walked and worked in darkness, hiding from the light in the darkness of night. Silently, secretly, use they their power, enslaving and binding the souls of men. Unseen they come and unseen they go.
Man in his ignorance calls Them from below. Power have they gained from the dark- ness around them to call other dwellers from out of their plane in ways that are dark and unseen by man. Into man's mind-space reach the Dark Brothers. Around it, they close the veil of their night. There through its lifetime that soul dwells in bondage, bound by the fetters of the Veil of the night.

Mighty are they in the forbidden knowledge, forbidden because it is one with the night. Hark ye, 0 man, and list to my warning: be ye free from the bondage of night. Sur- render not your soul to the Brothers of Darkness. Keep thy face ever turned toward the Light. Know ye not, 0 man, that your sorrow only has come through the Veil of the night? Aye, man, heed ye my warning: strive ever upward, turn your soul toward the Light. For well know they that those who have traveled far towards the Sun on their pathway of Light have great and yet greater power to bind with darkness the children of Light.
List ye, 0 man, to he who comes to you. But weigh in the balance if his words be of Light. For many there are who walk in Dark Brightness and yet are not the children of Light. Easy it is to follow their pathway, easy to follow the path that they lead. But yes, O man, heed ye my warning: Light comes only to him who strives. Hard is the pathway that leads to the Wisdom, hard is the pathway that leads to the Light.
Many shall ye find, the stones in your pathway; many the mountains to climb toward the Light. Yet know ye, 0 man, to him that o'ercometh, free will he be of the pathway of Light. Fol- low ye not the Dark Brothers ever. Always be ye a child of the Light. For know ye, 0 man, in the end Light must conquer and darkness and night be banished from Light. Listen, 0 man, and heed ye this wisdom; even as darkness, so is the Light. When darkness is banished and all Veils are rendered, out there shall flash from the darkness, the Light.
Even as exist among men the Dark Brothers, so there exists the Brothers of Light. Antagonists they of the Brothers of Darkness, seeking to free men from the night. Powers have they, mighty and potent. Knowing the Law, the planets obey. Work they ever in harmony and order, freeing the man-soul from its bondage of night. Secret and hidden, walk they also. Known not are they to the children of men. Yet know that ever they walk with thee, showing the Way to the children of men. Ever have They fought the Dark Brothers, conquered and conquering time without end.
Yet always Light shall in the end be master, driving away the darkness of night. Aye, man, know ye this knowing: always beside thee walk the Children of Light. Masters they of the Sun power, ever unseen yet the guardians of men. Open to all is their pathway, open to he who will walk in the Light. Suns are they and Lords of the morning, Children of Light to shine among men. Like man are they and yet are unlike. Never divided were they in the past. One have they been in Oneness eternal, throughout all space since the beginning of time. Up did they come in Oneness with the All One, up from the first-space, formed and unformed.
Given to man have they secrets that shall guard and protect him from all harm. He who would travel the path of a master, free must he be from the bondage of night. Con- quer must he the formless and shapeless; conquer must he the phantom of fear. Know- ing, must he gain of all the secrets, travel the pathway that leads through the darkness, yet ever before him keep the light of his goal. Obstacles great shall he meet in the path- way, yet press on to the Light of the Sun. Hear ye, O man, the Sun is the symbol of the Light that shines at the end of thy 22 road.
Now to thee give I the secrets: how to meet the dark power, meet and conquer the fear from the night. Only by knowing can ye conquer; only by knowing can ye have Light. Now I give unto thee the knowledge, known to the Masters; the knowing that con- quers all the dark fears. Use this, the wisdom I give thee. Master thou shalt be of the Brothers of Night. When unto thee there comes a feeling, drawing thee nearer to the dark gate, exam- ine thine heart and find if the feeling thou hast has come from within.
If thou shalt find the darkness thine own thoughts, banish them forth from place in thy mind. Send through thy body a wave of vibration, irregular first and regular second, repeating time after time until free. Start the Wave Force in thy Brain Center. Direct it in waves from thine head to thy foot. But if thou findest thine heart is not darkened, be sure that a force is directed to thee.
Only by knowing can thou overcome it. Only by wisdom can thou hope to be free. Knowledge brings wisdom and wisdom is power. Attain and ye shall have power o'er all. Seek ye first a place bound with darkness. Place ye a circle around about thee. Stand erect in the midst of the circle. Use thou this formula, and thou shalt be free. Raise thou thine hands to the dark space above thee. Close thou thine eyes and draw in the Light.
Call to the Spirit of Light through the Space- Time, using these words and thou shalt be free: "Fill thou my body with Spirit of Light. Come from the Flower that shines through the darkness. Come from the Halls where the Seven Lords rule. By their names I call them to aid me, free me and save me from the darkness of night: Untanas, Quertas, Chietal, and Goyana, Huer- tal, Semveta— Ardal. By their names I implore thee, free me from darkness and fill me with Light. See ye not that the names have the power to free by vibration the fetters that bind?
Use them at need to free thou thine brother so the he, too, may come forth from the night. Thou, O man, art thy brother's helper. Let him not lie in the bondage of night. Now unto thee, give I my magic. Take it and dwell on the pathway of Light. Light unto thee, Life unto thee, Sun may thou be on the cycle above. Open thy mind-space and drink of my wisdom. Dark is the pathway of Life that ye travel.
Many the pitfalls that lie in thy way. Seek ye ever to gain greater wisdom. Attain and it shall be light on thy way. Open thy Soul, O man, to the Cosmic and let it flow in as one with thy Soul. Light is eternal and darkness is fleeting. Seek ye ever, 0 man, for the Light. Know ye that ever as Light fills thy being, darkness for thee shall soon disappear. Open thy soul to the Brothers of Brightness. Let them enter and fill thee with Light. Lift up thine eyes to the Light of the Cosmos.
Keep thou ever thy face to the goal. Only by gaining the light of all wisdom, art thou one with the Infinite goal. Seek ye ever the Oneness eternal. Seek ye ever the Light of the goal. Light is infinite and Light is finite, separate only by darkness in man. Seek ye to rend the Veil of the Darkness. Bring thou together the Light into One. Hear ye, O man, list to my Voice singing the song of Light and of Life. Throughout all space, Light is prevalent, encompassing ALL with its banners of flame.
Seek ye forever in the Veil of the Darkness, somewhere ye shall surely find Light. Hidden and buried, lost to man's knowledge, deep in the finite the Infinite exists. In all space, there is only One wisdom. Though seeming divided, it is One in the One. Everything created is based upon Order: Law rules the space where the Infinite dwells. Forth from equilibrium came the great cycles, moving in harmony toward Infin- ity's end. Know ye, 0 man, that far in the space-time, Infinity itself shall pass into change. Know that through time thou may pursue wisdom and find ever more light on the way.
Aye, thou shalt find that ever receding, thy goal shall elude thee from day unto day. Mighty, They in their aspects of power; mighty, They in the wisdom unveiled. Led by the Dweller, first did I see them. But afterwards free was I of their presence, free to enter their conclave at will. Oft did I journey down the dark pathway unto the Hall where the Light ever glows. Learned I of the Masters of cycles, wisdom brought from the cycles above us, knowl- edge brought from Infinity's All. Many the questions I asked of the Lords of the cycles. Great was the wisdom they gave unto me.
Now unto thee I give of this wisdom, drawn from the flame of I nfinity's fire.
Deep in the Dark Halls sit the Seven, units of consciousness from cycles above. Mani- fest They in this cycle as guide of man to the knowledge of All. Seven are they, mighty in power, speaking these words through me to men. Time after time, stood I before them listening to words that came not with sound. Once said They unto me: "0 man, wouldst thou gain wisdom? Seek for it in the heart 24 of the flame.
Wouldst thou gain knowledge of power? Seek ye it in the heart of the flame. Wouldst be one with the heart of the flame? Seek then within thine own hidden flame. Giving knowledge of operation, learning of Law, the order of ALL. Spoke to me again, the Seven, saying: "From far beyond time are We come, 0 man. Traveled We from beyond the Space-Time, aye, from the place of Infinity's end. When ye and all of thy brethren were formless, formed forth were We from the order of ALL. Not as men are We though once We, too, were as men.
Out of the Great Void were We formed forth in order and by Law. For know ye that that which is formed truly is form- less, having form only to thine eyes. Know ye that these are the number of cycles that We descend from unto man. Each hav- ing here a duty to fulfill; each having here a force to control. Yet are We, One, with the Soul of our cycle. Yet are We, too, seeking a goal. Far beyond man's conception, Infinity extends into a greater than All. Time and space are moving in circles.
Know ye their law, and ye, too, shall be free. Aye, free shall ye be to move through the cycles— pass the guardians that dwell at the door. For know ye, O man, that far in the future, life and death shall be one with the All. Each so perfected by balancing the other that neither exists in the Oneness of All.
In men of this cycle, the life force is rampant, but life in its growth becomes one with the All. Here, I manifest in this your cycle, but yet am I there in your future of time. Yet to me, time exists not, for in my world time exists not, for formless are We. Life have We not but yet have existence, fuller and greater and freer than thee. Man is a flame bound to a mountain, but We in our cycle shall ever be free. Know ye, O man, that when ye have progressed into the cycles that lengthen above, life itself will pass to the darkness and only the essence of Soul shall remain.
Not as yet have ye touched on the Great. Far out in space where Light reigns supreme, came I into the Light. Formed was I also but not as ye are. Body of Light was my formless form formed. Seek ye to find the path through the barriers. Travel the road that leads to the Light. Not impos- sible is it to grow to a consciousness above. For when Two have become One and One has become the All, know ye the barrier has lifted, and ye are made free of the road.
Grow thou from form to the formless. Free may thou be of the road. Now lift I my thought to the All-Thing. List ye and hear when it calls. Enter thou so that I may be free. Make me One with the All-Soul, shining from the blackness of night. Free let me be of all space-time, free from the Veil of the night. I, a child of the Light, command: Free from the darkness to be. Know I the bonds of the darkness must shatter and fall before light. Now give I this wisdom. Free may ye be, O man, living in light and in brightness.
Turn not thy face from the Light. Thy soul dwells in realms of brightness. Ye are a child of the Light. Turn thy thoughts inward not outward. Find thou the Light-Soul within. Know that thou are the Master. All else is brought from within. Grow thou to realms of brightness. Hold thou thy thought on the Light. Know thou are one with the Cosmos, a flame and a Child of the Light. Now to thee give I warning: Let not thy thought turn away. Know that the brightness flows through thy body for aye.
Turn not to the Dark- Brightness that comes from the Brothers of Black. But keep thine eyes ever lifted, thy soul in tune with the Light. Take ye this wisdom and heed it. List to my Voice and obey. Follow the pathway to brightness, and thou shalt be One with the way. Unto thee have I given of Light. Hear ye now and receive my wisdom brought from space planes above and beyond. Not as man am I for free have I become of dimensions and planes.
In each, take I on a new body. In each, I change in my form. Know I now that the formless is all there is of form. Great is the wisdom of the Seven. Mighty are they from beyond. Manifest They through their power, filled by force from beyond. Here ye these words of wisdom. Hear ye and make them thine own. Find in them the formless. Find ye the key to beyond.
Mystery is but hidden knowledge. Know and ye shall unveil. Find the deep buried wisdom and be master of darkness and Light. Deep are the mysteries around thee, hidden the secrets of Old. Search through the Keys of my Wisdom. Surely shall ye find the way. The gateway to power is secret, but he who attains shall receive. Look to the Light! O my brother. Open and ye shall receive. Press on through the valley of darkness. Overcome the dweller of the night. Keep ever thine eyes to the Light-Plane, and thou shalt be One with the Light.
Man is in process of changing to forms that are not of this world. Grows he in time to the formless, a plane on the cycle above. Know ye, ye must become formless before ye are one with the Light. List ye, 0 man, to my voice, telling of the pathways to Light, showing the way of attainment when ye shall be One with the Light. Search ye the mysteries of Earth's heart. Learn of the Law that exists, holding the stars in their balance by the force of the primordial mist. Seek ye the flame of the Earth's Life. Bathe in the glare of its flame. Fol- low the three-cornered pathway until thou, too, art a flame.
Speak thou in words without voice to those who dwell down below. Enter the blue- litten Temple and bathe in the fire of all life. Know, 0 man, thou art complex, a being of earth and of fire. Let thy flame shine out brightly. Be thou only the fire. Wisdom is hidden in darkness.
When lit by the flame of the Soul, find thou the wis- dom and be Light-Born, a Sun of the Light without form. Seek thee ever more wisdom. Find it in the heart of the flame. Know that only by striving can Light pour into thy brain. Now have I spoken with wisdom. Tear open the Veils of the darkness. Shine a Light on the Way. Speak I of Ancient Atlantis, speak of the days of the Kingdom of Shadows, speak of the coming of the children of shadows.
Out of the great deep were they called by the wisdom of earth-men, called for the purpose of gaining great power. Far in the past before Atlantis existed, men there were who delved into darkness, using dark magic, calling up beings from the great deep below us. Forth came they into this cycle. Formless were they of another vibration, existing unseen by the children of earth-men.
Only through blood could they have formed being. Only through man could they live in the world. But some there were who remained, hidden in spaces and planes unknown to man. Lived they in Atlantis as shadows, but at times they appeared among men. Aye, when the blood was offered, forth came they to dwell among men. In the form of man moved they amongst us, but only to sight where they as are men. Serpent- headed when the glamour was lifted but appearing to man as men among men. Crept they into the Councils, taking forms that were like unto men. Slaying by their arts the chiefs of the kingdoms, taking their form and ruling o'er man.
Only by magic could they be discovered. Only by sound could their faces be seen. Sought they from the kingdom of shadows to destroy man and rule in his place. But, know ye, the Masters were mighty in magic, able to lift the Veil from the face of the serpent, able to send him back to his place. Came they to man and taught him the secret, the Word that only a man can pronounce. Swift then they lifted the Veil from the serpent and cast him forth from place among men. Yet, beware, the serpent still liveth in a place that is open at times to the world.
Un- seen they walk among thee in places where the rites have been said. Again as time passes onward shall they take the semblance of men. Called may they be by the master who knows the white or the black, but only the white master may control and bind them while in the flesh.

Seek not the kingdom of shadows, for evil will surely appear. For only the master of brightness shall conquer the shadow of fear. Know ye, O my brother, that fear is an obstacle great.

List ye, O man, to the depth of my wisdom.
Speak I of knowledge hidden from man. Far have I been on my journey though Space-Time, even to the end of the space of this cycle. Found I there the great barrier, holding man from leaving this cycle. Aye, glimpsed the Hounds of the Barrier, laying in wait for he who would pass them. They adopted bloody sacrifices — and this resulted in numerous incarnations of hellish beings among people. This led to quick degradation of incarnated people in Atlantis. When the destruction of Atlantis happened two islands submerged into the ocean one after another according to the Divine Will , Thoth-the-Atlantean moved to Egypt Khem with a group of other Divine Atlanteans.
Thanks to this, the higher spiritual knowledge of Atlantis was brought to Egypt and to other countries. In the Egyptian mythology, Thoth is worshipped as a God of wisdom and writing, as a patron of sciences, scribes, holy scriptures, as a creator of the calendar. According to Plato, He revealed to the Egyptians counting, geometry, astronomy, and writing.
