THE SIXTH POINT

ON MYSTEBY.   WHAT IT is.

1.  Mystery is nothing else than the magical will,
which still lies caught in desire.    It may fashion
itself in the mirror of wisdom how it will.    And as
it fashions itself in the tincture, so it is fixed and
formed in Magic, and brought into a being.

2.  For   Mysterium   magnum   is    nothing    else
than the hiddenness of the Deity, together with
the Being of all beings, from which one mysterium
proceeds  after  another,  and  each  mysterium  is
the mirror and model of the other.   And it is the
great wonder of eternity, wherein all is included,
and from eternity has been seen in the mirror
of wisdom.    And nothing comes to pass that has
not from eternity been known in the  mirror of
wisdom.

3.  But you must understand this according to
the properties of the mirror, according to all the
forms of Nature, viz. according to light and dark-
ness, according to comprehensibility and incom-
prehensibility,   according  to  love  and  wrath,  or
according to fire and light, as has been set forth
elsewhere.

4.  The Magician has power in this Mystery to
act according to his will, and can do what he
pleases.
