"Babalon is suffused like Countess Bathory and vivified in the living blood. She is drunk and brimful on life. How much more this means than the dry cannibalism of the Christian mass."
- Peter Grey, “The Red Goddess”
What is the meaning of Initiation? It is the Path to the realisation of your Self as the sole, the supreme, the absolute of all Truth, Beauty, Purity, Perfection!
My adepts stand upright; their head above the heavens, their feet below the hells.
Yet deeper drives “Do what thou wilt”; subconscious oppositions are evoked to visible appearance. The secret sanctuaries of the soul are cleansed. “Do what thou wilt” purges his every part. He has become One, one only. His Will is consequently released from the interference of internal opposition, and he is a Master of Magick. But for that very reason he is now utterly impotent to achieve anything that is not in absolute accordance with his Original Oath, with his True Will, by virtue whereof he incarnated as a man.
