Hear ye the words of the Star Goddess

I who am the beauty of the green earth,
and the white moon among the
and the mystery of the waters, call unto thy soul:
Arise, and
come unto me.
For I am the soul of nature,
who gives life to the
From Me all things proceed,
and unto Me all things must
and before My face, beloved of gods and of men,
let thine
innermost divine self be enfolded in the rapture of the infinite.
My worship be within the heart that rejoices;
for behold, all acts of love
and pleasure are My rituals.
And therefore let there be beauty and
power and compassion,
honor and humility,
mirth and reverence
within you.
And thou who thinkest to seek Me,
know that thy seeking and
shall avail thee not unless thou knowest the Mystery:
that if
that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee,
thou wilt never find
it without.
For behold,
I have been with thee from the beginning;
and I
am that which is attained
at the end of desire.
