Bride Of Light
Art by Norman E. Masters
Whenever you seek wisdom come together in love and trust and learn of Me, who am Living Wisdom. You who search the mysteries of the Earth, the secrets of Air and Darkness, the mysteries of Blood and Fire, the silence of the uttermost stars: come unto Me, and I shall whisper to you in the depths of midnight.
Approach Me in the sanctity of silence, and as a sign that you are free from fear, you shall bare your breasts unto Me. For fear has no place in My nurturing Mysteries, and that which you seek of me will destroy you if you fear it.
For I am the dolmen arch beyond which stretch the Mysteries of Infinity. I am the Silence before birth and after death. I am the clouded Mirror in which you Scry your own soul. I am mist in the twilight, the vast and starry sky of midnight, shadows on the Moon.
All things come to Me in the end, and yet I am the beginning of All. I meet you at the CrossRoads; I lead you through the darkness; My hand is the hand you will grasp in the passage between the worlds.
To the True Seeker I bring knowledge beyond mortal comprehension. Of you shall I demand the uttermost truth of all that you are; and in return shall I give you all that you may be, all that I am. For My Wisdom is beyond the Ages; and knowledge of My Secrets is power over self, over fear, over death.
I demand of you nothing which you cannot give. For I am the Mother of Mysteries, and inasmuch as you know Me, so shall you learn to know yourself.
