Herren von Schwartze Stein

"Our Order of Warriors aspires to pass from the visible light of the Golden Sun which is the Shadow of the Light of the Black Sun, to that indescribable state, that Non-Existence of the Ray of Green Light, where Our Exalted Guides Dwell. And from there return Hand in Hand with Our BELOVED."

- Miguel Serrano

"A man who has married this Serpent has a strange, other-worldly appearance. His face has the repose of one who has taken pleasure in being poisoned, and he reflects the calmness of death. He appears to be immersed in dreamy waters, where he swims with the fish of God. His eyes, though closed, emanate an indescribable joy, and there is the shadow of a smile on his lips; for it has been his privilege to descend to the dark roots of pleasure and to be able to return to a spiritual union. In the palace that rest on the top of the Tree of Paradise he has met someone for whom he has been waiting for a long time, and the joy of this encounter has made tears stream down his cheeks. The fruit formed from these tears are at once liquid and icelike, and when they fall they make a noise like that of tinkling bells."
-Miguel Serrano "The Serpent of Paradise"


A Memorable Fancy
 Once I saw a Devil in a flame of fire, who arose before an Angel that sat on a cloud and the Devil utter'd these words:
"The worship of God is: Honouring his gifts in other men, each according to his genius, and loving the greatest men best: those who envy or calumniate great men hate God; for there is no other God."
The Angel hearing this became almost blue; but mastering himself he grew yellow & at last white, pink, & smiling, and then replied:
"Thou Idolater! is not God One? & is not he visible in Jesus Christ? and has not Jesus Christ given his sanction to the law of the ten commandments? and are not all other men fools, sinners, & nothings?"
The Devil answer'd: "Bray a fool in a morter with wheat, yet not shall his folly be beaten out of him; if Jesus Christ is the greatest man, you ought to love him in the greatest degree; now hear how he has given his sanction to the law of ten commandments: did he not mock at the sabbath and so mock the 'sabbath's God'? murder those who were murdered because of him? turn away the law from the woman taken in adultery? steal the labor of others to support him? bear false witness when he omitted making a defence before Pilate? covet when he prayed for his disciples, and when he bid them shake off the dust of their feet against those who refused to lodge them? I tell you, no virtues can exist without breaking these ten commandments . Jesus was virtue, and acted from impulse, not from rules."
When he had so spoken, I beheld the Angel, who stretched out his arms , embracing the flames of fire , & he was consumed and arose as Elijah.
NOTE: This Angel, who has now become a Devil, is my particular friend; we often read the bible in its infernal and diabolical sense, which the world shall have if they behave well.
I have also the Bible of Hell, which the world shall have whether they will or not.
One Law for the Lion & Ox is Opression.
-William Blake "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell"
