Invocation of Horus


The Invocation of Horus

According to the Divine Vision of W. the Seer

To be performed before a window open to the E. or N. without incense. The room filled with jewels, but only diamonds to be worn. A Sword, unconsecrated. 44 pearl beads to be told. Stand. Bright daylight at 12:30 noon. Lock doors. White robes; bare feet. Be very loud. Die ♄.

The Above is W.’s answer to various questions posed by P.


Preliminary

Banish. L.B.R. Pentagram. L.B.R. Hexagram. Flaming Sword. Abrahadabra. Invoke. As before.

These are P.’s ideas for ritual. W. replied, “Omit.”

Use the Sign of Apophis and Typhon.


Confession

Unprepared and uninvoking Thee, I, […], Fra. R.R. et A.C., am here in Thy Presence -for Thou art Everywhere, O Lord Horus! -to confess humbly before Thee my neglect and scorn of Thee.
How shall I humble myself enough before Thee? Thou art the mighty and unconquered Lord of the Universe: I am a spark of Thine unutterable Radiance.
How should I approach Thee? -but Thou art Everywhere.
But Thou hast graciously designed to call me unto Thee, to this Exorcism of Art, that I may be Thy Servant, Thine Adept, O Bright One, O Sun of Glory! Thou whas called me -should I not then hasten to Thy Presence?
With unwashen hands therefore I come unto Thee, and I lament my wandering from Thee -but Thou knowest!
Yea, I have done evil!
If one blasphemed Thee, why should I therefore forsake Thee? But Thou art the Avenger; all is with Thee.
I bow my neck before Thee; and as once Thy Sword was upon it, so am I in Thy hands. Strike if Thou wilt: spare if Thou wilt: but accept me as I am.
My trust is in Thee: shall I be confounded? This Ritual of Art; this Forty and Fourfold Invocation; this Sacrifice of Blood–these I do not comprehend.
It is enough if I obey Thy Decree; did Thy Fiat go forth for my eternal misery, were it not my joy to execute Thy Sentence on myself?
For why? For that All is in Thee and of Thee; it is enough if I burn up in the intolerable glory of Thy presence.
Enough! I turn toward Thy Promise.
Doubtful are the Words: Dark are the Ways; but in Thy Words and Ways is Light. Thus then now as ever, I enter the Path of Darkness, if haply so I may attain the Light. Hail!
