The Seven Lords

Harken O man, and listen to my Voice. Open your mind-space and drink of my wisdom. Dark is the pathway of LIFE you travel. Many pitfalls lie in the way. Seek ever then, to gain greater wisdom. Attain and it shall be light upon the way. Open Your SOUL, O Man, to the Cosmic and let it flow in as one with your SOUL. Light is eternal and darkness is fleeting. Seek ever O Human, for the LIGHT! Always know that as Light fills your being, darkness WILL soon disappear! Open your Soul to the BROTHERS OF BRIGHTNESS. Let them enter and fill you with LIGHT. Lift up your eyes to the LIGHT of the Cosmos and keep your face pointed forever, towards the goal! Only in gaining the light of all Wisdom, are we One with the Infinite Goal. Seek forever the eternal Oneness; seek forever the Light Of The Goal! Light is infinite and light is finite, separated only by the darkness in man. Seek to rend the veil of darkness, bring the Light together in One. Hear O Human and listen to My Voice, singing the song of Light and of Life. Throughout all space, Light is prevalent, encompassing ALL with its banners of flames. Seek forever in the veil of the darkness, somewhere shall you surely find Light. Hidden and buried, lost to man's knowledge; deep in the finite, the Infinite exists. Lost, but continuing on and flowing through all things; living in ALL is the INFINITE BRAIN.

In all space, there is only ONE wisdom. Though seeming divided, it is ONE in the ONE! All that exists comes forth from the LIGHT, and the LIGHT comes forth from the ALL. Everything created is based upon ORDER: LAW rules the space where the INFINITE dwells. Out from equilibrium came the great cycles, moving in harmony toward Infinity's end. Know ye, O man, that far in the space-time, INFINITY itself shall pass from change. Hear and listen to the Voice of Wisdom: Know that ALL is of ALL evermore. Know that through time you may pursue wisdom and find ever more light on the way. You will find, that while ever receding, the goal evading you, will compel you from day to day.

Long time ago, in the HALLS OF AMENTI, I, Thoth, stood before the LORDS of the cycles. Mighty, THEY in their aspects of power; mighty, THEY in the wisdom unveiled. Led by the Dweller, first did I see them. But afterwards free was I of their presence, free to enter their conclave at will. Oft did I journey down the dark pathway unto the HALL where the LIGHT ever glows. Learned I of the Masters of cycles, wisdom brought from the cycles above. Manifest THEY in this cycle, as guides of man to the knowledge of ALL. Seven are they, mighty in power, speaking these words through me to men. Time after time, stood I before them listening to words that came not with sound. Once said THEY unto me:

"O man, wouldst thou gain wisdom? Seek for it in the heart of the flame. Wouldst thou gain knowledge of power? Seek it in the heart of the flame. Wouldst be one with the very heart of the flame? Seek it then, within thine own hidden flame." 

Many the times spoke THEY to me, teaching me wisdom not of the world; showing me ever new paths to brightness; teaching me wisdom brought from above. Giving knowledge of operation, learning of LAW, the order of ALL. Spoke to me again, the Seven, saying:

"From far beyond time are WE come, O man, Traveled WE from beyond SPACE-TIME, aye, from the place of Infinity's end. When ye and all of thy brethren were formless, formed forth were WE from the order of ALL. Not as men are WE, though once WE too, were as men. Out of the Great Void were WE formed forth in order by LAW. For know ye, that which is formed truly is formless, having form only to thine eyes, while in front of you."

And again, unto me spoke the Seven, saying:

"Child of the LIGHT, O THOTH, art thou free to travel the bright path upward until at last ALL ONES become ONE. Forth were WE formed after our order: THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT--NINE. Know ye that these are the numbers of cycles that WE descend from unto man. Each having here a duty to fulfill; each having here a force to control. Yet are we ONE with the SOUL of our cycle. Yet are WE, too, seeking a goal. Far beyond man's conception, Infinity extends into a greater than ALL. There, in a time that is yet not a time, we shall ALL become one with One greater than ALL. Time and space are moving in circles. Know their law, and you too, shall be free. Aye, free shall you be to move through the cycles-- and pass the guardians that dwell at the door."

Then to me spoke HE of NINE saying:

"Aeons and aeons have I existed, knowing not LIFE and tasting not death. For know ye O man, that far in the future, life and death shall be one with the ALL. Each so perfected by balancing the other that neither perpetuates itself in the Oneness of ALL. In men of this cycle, the life force is rampant, but life in its growth becomes one with them ALL. Here, I manifest in this your cycle, but yet am I there in your future of time. Yet to me, time exists not, for in my world time is linear; formless are WE. Life have WE not, but yet have we existence, fuller, greater and freer than yours. For man is a flame bound to a mountain, but WE in our cycle shall ever be free. Know ye, O man, that when ye have progressed into the cycle that lengthens above, life itself will pass to the darkness and only the essence of Soul shall remain."

Then to me spoke the LORD of the EIGHT saying:

"All that you know is but part of little. Not as yet have you touched upon the Great. Far out in space where are LIGHT beings supreme, came I into the LIGHT. Formed was I also but not as ye are. Body Of Light was my formless form formed. Know I not LIFE and know I not DEATH, yet master am I of all that exists. Seek ye to find the path through the barriers. Travel the road that leads to the LIGHT." Spoke again to me the NINE saying: "Seek ye to find the path to beyond. Not impossible is it to grow to a consciousness above. For when TWO have become ONE and ONE has become the ALL, know ye the barrier has lifted, and ye are made free of the road. Grow thou from form to the Formless. Free may thou be of the road."

Thus, through ages I listened, learning the way to the ALL. Now Lift I my thoughts to the ALL-THING. List ye and hear when it calls. O LIGHT, all pervading, One with ALL and ALL with ONE, flow thou to me through the channel. Enter thou so that I may be free. Make me One with the ALL-SOUL, shining from the blackness of night. Free let me be of all space-time, free from the Veil of the night. I, a child of LIGHT, command: Free from the darkness to be! Formless am I to the Light-Soul, formless yet shining with light. Know I the bonds of the darkness must shatter and fall before light. Now give I this wisdom. Free may ye be, O man, living in light and in brightness. Turn not they face from the Light. Thy soul dwells in realms of brightness. Ye are a child of the Light.

Turn thy thoughts inward not outward. Find thou the Light-Soul within. Know that thou art the MASTER. All else is brought from within. Grow thou to realms of brightness. Hold thou thy thought on the Light. Know thou art one with the Cosmos, a flame and a Child of the Light. Now to thee give I warning: Let not the thought turn away. Know that the brightness flows through thy body for aye. Turn not to the DARK-BROTHERS that come from the BROTHERS OF BLACK. But keep thine eyes ever lifted, thy soul in tune with the Light. Take ye this wisdom and heed it. List to my Voice and obey. Follow the pathway to brightness, and YOU shall be ONE with the Way.
