Venerable One, She who watches over my flock and fields, and makes my way smooth across seas, I thank you for your protection, love and wisdom. May you always watch over me and mine. May we always remain devoted unto you, aspect of the one Creator, in whom feminine power and masculine strength are distilled in equal measure. Defend us from the Workers in Darkness, the wily wizards who have absconded with 1/3 of the Way. These passing emperors shall rule but a day in your timescape, sacred Goddess. Let us be triumphant in petty battles and wider wars, all. Let Ares not desert us in our hour of need, nor Zeus fail to bend the winds and tempests to our needs.
Where there is dark working, so shall there be light. Little is it understood, "As above, so below," for the seeker after power is swift to cast aside remembrance of the eternal truth --- light and dark are divided for a reason. That which creates will uplift. That which conceals or otherwise destroys will bring down. They who have sold themselves to the likes of LAM were undone in the first moment. Ours is the eternal order. From origin to eternity we will walk and work in the name of the One Creator and for all the One Creator's aspects to bring forth hope, and liberation, and justice.
It is said, "Do as thou wilt," but rarely is it finished, "with expectation of reaction." To be sure, one may do anything. But one must not forget that the energies of creation are not unbound. To every action is a matching reaction. Do evil, and evil will come back to you. Even the lowest witch understands this. There are stage magicians with a better understanding of the secret language than is seen in the mightiest of those world-ruling charlatans with their secret rites.
Let us be a light in the shadow. Let us be a beacon in the dark. Let our working wield power, mighty Creator. Let us never fail you.
