Notes:

 

 

The Work

 

The essence herein resides in the directional impulse.

A stands for the Actuality, which is the lower.

I stands for the Ideal, which is the higher.

A is manifest. I is willed. 

 

Herein lieth the method of the Alchemy of Light,

by which the entire world may be liberated,

or even of the Alchemy of Darkness,

by which the entire world may be,

and slowly is being, enslaved.

O Children of Earth,

Awaken from your apathetic impotent dreams!

Shake off the chains of cowardice and seize your destiny!
