Thelemic Rosary (Simple Version)

A very simple version to get you started. Expanded versions for various purposes coming at a later date.

Open with the The Oath of the Enchantment
from Liber V vel Reguli.

First three small beads:
1st small bead: Had! The manifestation of Nuit.
2ed small bead: Nu! the hiding of Hadit.
3ed small bead: Abrahadabra; the reward of Ra Hoor Khut.

All Large Beads: Confession and Declaration:
ASAR UN-NEFER, you who are not my body, you who are not my heart, you who are not my mind. Holy art thou, my secret self! Lord of the Gods. Unity uttermost showed!

Through my own fault, in my thoughts and in my deeds, in what I have done and what I have failed to do, I have neglected to know and do my will. I have cast blame on others and other circumstances. I have not accepted responsibility for my own actions and inactions.

Hear me, I invoke you!
I seek to write new values on new tablets!
I seek to fully realize the Aeon of Horus, that I might work my will in the world!
Such are the Words!

Small beads: The Holiest of All Mantras
Unity uttermost showed!
I adore the might of Thy breath,
Supreme and terrible God,
Who makest the gods and death
To tremble before Thee: --
I, I adore thee!

Appear on the throne of Ra!
Open the ways of the Khu!
Lighten the ways of the Ka!
The ways of the Khabs run through
To stir me or still me!
Aum! let it fill me!

Concluding Prayer: from the Preliminary Invocation of the Goetia
Hear Me, And make all Spirits subject unto Me:
So that every Spirit of the Firmament, And of the Ether,
Upon the Earth, And under the Earth,
On dry land, And in the Water,
Of whirling Air, And of rushing Fire,
And every Spell and Scourge of God, may be obedient unto Me!

Close with the The Oath of the Enchantment
from Liber V vel Reguli.

Fundamental Obeisance

Dee's Fundamental Obeisance (Revised and Rewritten)

Eheieh Asher Eheieh,
I invoke and call upon your Divine Power and authority,
and ask you to favor and assist me in all my works, words and actions.

And by your twelve mystical names.
do I entreat and implore your Divine Majesty.

Aid and bear witness to my spiritual endeavor. Send forth your faithful Angelic and Ministering Spirits, where ever they might be and in whatever time I might call, by the authority of your Holy Names. May they come quickly when called, visibly and peacefully before us. Grant me your authority to command your spirits that they will answer to my demands and instructions faithfully and to my satisfaction.

Concept of Divinity

Q: What is the great work?
A: The great work is the end of your life's work and the achievement of union with God.

Now what does this mean exactly? Well I cannot tell you that, BUT I can tell you what it means to me. I am not an atheist, I believe in God or the Divine as I prefer to call it, not he. Not exactly the Christian God but a creator god. A master of the universe, the creator of all. The creator of you and me.

Now I also believe man is God. Not in the sense most people use the term that man is all there is, so man is his own god. And not in the sense that man is a creator like God or equal to God. No.

What I mean is, Man at his deepest core is one with God, the divine. Man is divine.

An analogy:
Consider most Christian religions ideas and concepts about Jesus Christ. They believe he is fully man and fully God at the same time. I believe this is true about all men. And likewise they believe in the concept of the trinity. That God the father, God the son, and God the holy spirit are separate entities, yet the same entity all at the same time. This is what I mean when I say, "Man is God".

As a man we are flesh and blood walking around eating and shitting, but at the same time we are not the same as God, we are in fact a part of him, we are one with God. We are separate and not separate at the same time. The great work is to overcome the illusion of duality and to digest the seemingly impossibility of being a duality and singularity at the same time.

In Thelemic Terms:
Nuit and Hadit are the duality, opposites in the extreme. One the infinite, the other the infinitely small. Just as extreme as the opposites as a flesh and blood man and the all powerful creator of everything. Yet, Ra-Hoor-Khuit is the singularity. Just as we must become and discover our own singularity in order to achieve the great work.

Once again the lession of the New Aeon is we can no longer just worship the divine. Or through worship assume the qualities of the divine or Jesus or Osiris to overcome death. We must realize our own divinity. We must become our own Christ. We must realize and be the anointed one.
