Praying Man(tis)

November 2008

Prayer-as-supplication has at its root the concept that the one praying is separate from Deity. To the magician this concept is anathema. A primary Hermetic Axiom is that Deity is immanent — The All in ALL. In [the highest levels of practice], the magician incorporates the four Divine qualities into their own self awareness. This is a process of raising the magician’s own awareness to the level of Deity, not one of drawing the Deific awareness down.
