consecrate a talisman of the Eagle Kerub of Jupiter that it may be powerful
to heal the sick, to alleviate pain, to give health and strength.  And I
swear, in the presence of the Eternal Gods, that, as liveth the Lord of the
Universe and my own Higher Soul, I will so create a dweller for this
talisman that it shall be irresistible to heal the sick, to alleviate pain,
to give health and strength: to the welfare of mankind and the glory of

   Hail unto Thee, Lord of Mercy!  Hail, I say, unto Thee, the Father of
the Gods!
   O Thou, whose golden plumes stream up the sky in floods of light divine!
   Thou, whose head is as a sapphire, or the vault of the unchanging sky!
   Thou, whose heart is pitiful; where the Rose Dawn shines out amid the
   Thou, unchanging and unchangeable;
   Whom the Eagle follows; whom the Serpent doth embrace;
   O Thou that standest on the Scorpion!

   Thou, the All-Father, Thou whose plumes of power rise up to touch the
Throne of the Concealed!
   Mighty!  Merciful!  Magnificent!
   Thee, Thee, Thee, Thee, I invoke!
   Behold!  Thou hast lifted up Thy Voice and the hills were shaken!  Yea,
Thou didst cry aloud and the everlasting hills did bow!  They fled away;
they were not!  And Thine Awful Sea rolled in upon the Abyss!
   For Thou didst look upon my face and say: Thou art my Son, this day have
I begotten Thee!
   Yea, O my Father, Thou hast spoken unto me and said: "Sit thou on my
right hand!" {191}
   But I have covered my face.  I have hidden myself.  I have knelt before
Thee in the Glory of Thy face!
   Arise, Lord God, arise and shine!  I am To-Day and I am Yesterday!  I am
the Brother of the Golden Dawn!
   In the Chariot of Life is my seat, and my horses course upon the
firmament of Nu!

Thy Feet!

him; or the Son of Man that Thou visitest him!  Thou hast made him a little

   Keep it in purity and strength!
   Let the dew of heaven descend upon it in the night season!
   Let this sacred perfume be burnt before it in the heat of day!
   At frequent times do this; and especially after thou has employed it in
a work of love.
   And if thou dose treat it ill, if thou dost use it unworthily, if thou
dost expose it to the gaze of the profane, then let its spirit return unto
the God that give it, and let its power be assumed by its evil and averse
antithesis to become a dreadful vampire, ever to prey upon thee, that the
Vengeance of the Gods may drink its fill.
   But, and if thou does well and faithfully, ye shall be unto each other
as a support and a blessing, and the Blessing of God the Vast One shall be

   Fra: P. constructed many other talismans besides this, a Flashing Tablet
of the Eagle Kerub of Jupiter for the purpose {197} of curing a certain
Lady I____, mother of Soror Q.F.D.F., of a serious illness.  Extraordinary
were its results.  For having carefully celebrated the ritual he instructed
Soror Q.F.D.R. to feed the talisman with incense, and water it with dew.
This she neglected to do, the result being that when she placed the
talisman on her sick mother, this venerable old lady was seized with a
violent series of fits, and nearly died.  Q.F.D.R., however, reconsecrated
the talisman, the result being that the Lady I____ speedily recovered the
whole of her former strength, and survived to the ripe old age of ninety-
   With a similar talisman, too hurriedly prepared, he cured the pain in
the leg of a certain friend of his; but forgetting to close the circle he
found himself afflicted, exactly twenty-four hours later, by a similar
pain,but in the opposite leg to the one in which his friend had suffered.
   On very much the same lines as the foregoing, P. invoked into manifest
appearance in the early autumn of 1899 the mighty but fallen spirit Buer,
to compel his obedience unto the restoring of the health of Frater I.A.;
and many other workings were also accomplished about this period.  More
important than any such dealings with the Paths is his progress in the
Middle Pillar.  In this connection we shall include Frater I.A.'s ritual
for "The Magical Invocation of the Higher Genius."
