Ekstasis' Book of Shadows

Postby MyDarkCelticFlames » Thu Jan 13, 2011 6:15 pm

Well, to start off, I did have a physically book of shadows, but after my mother threatened to burn it, I decided to hide it away and keep one on the computer...

The Witches Creed:

Hear now the words of the witches,
The secrets we hid in the night,
When dark was our destiny’s pathway,
That now we bring forth into light.

Mysterious water and fire
The earth and the wide-ranging air
By hidden quintessence we know them
And will and keep silent and dare.

The birth and rebirth of all nature
The passing of winter and spring
We share with the life universal
Rejoice in the magical ring.

Four times in the year the great Sabbat
Returns, and witches are seen
At Lammas and Candlemas dancing,
On Beltane and All Hallows Eve.

When daytime and nighttime are equal
When the sun is at greatest and least
The four lesser Sabbats are summoned
Again witches gather in feast.

Thirteen silver moons in a year are
Thirteen is the coven’s array
Thirteen times as Esbat make merry
For each golden year and a day

The power passed down through ages
Each time between woman and man
Each century into another
Ere time and the ages began

When drawn is the magical circle
By sword or athame or power
Its compass between the two worlds lie
In Land of the Shadows for that hour.

The world has no right then to know it
And world beyond will tell naught
The oldest of Gods are invoked there
The great work of magic is wrought

For two are the mystical pillars
That stands at the gate of the shrine
And two are the powers of nature
The forms and the forces divine

The dark and the light in succession
The opposites each unto each
Shown forth as a God and a Goddess
Of this did our ancestors teach

By night he’s the wild wind’s rider
The Horned One, the Lord of the shades,
By day he’s the King of the Woodlands
The dweller in Green forest glades.

She is youthful or old as she pleases
She sails the torn clouds in her barque
The bright silver lady of moonlight
The crone who weaves spells in the dark

The master and mistress of magic
They dwell in the deeps of the mind
Immortal and every-renewing
With power to free and to bind

So drink the good wine to the Old Gods
And dance and make love in their praise
‘Til Elphame’s fair land shall receive us
In peace at the end of our days.

And do what you will be the challenge
So be it in Love that harms none
For this is our only commandment
By magic of old, be it done.

If it harms none, do what you will.
