I who am the beauty of the green Earth,
The white moon and the Mystery on the waters,
Call upon your soul to rise and come unto me,
For from me all things proceed and unto me they must return.
Let my worship be in the heart that rejoices,
For all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals.
Let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion,
Reverence and mirth within you.
And you, who seek to know me,
Know that your seeking and yearning will avail you not,
Unless you know the Mystery:
If that which you seek, you find not within yourself,
You will never find it from without,
For behold, I have been with you from the beginning
And am that which is attained at the end of desire.
