“Know that the Phoenix is the soul of the Iliaster (that is, the first chaos of the matter of all things). It is also the Iliastic soul in man. ~ Liber Azoth, S. V., Practica Lineae Vitae.
Beautiful, glorious and sacrificing self for renewal, you build a pyre and set yourself ablaze. For the sake of self. Red bird of fire you come forth through your ashes a new bird shedding the old self which no longer is needful. You embrace your new strength and fly to the heights of the sky to the city of the sun and give the ashes unto the altar of the sun god for your immortality. Embrace yourself for you are a child of the sun and will live eternal through birth, death, and renewal! The Spirit never dies!
