The Charge of the Goddess

I am the beauty of the earth and the white moon amongst the stars, the mystery of the waters, and the desire in the heart of men. I call upon the soul to arise and come unto me. For I am the soul of nature who giveth life to the universe. From me all things return.

Beloved of gods and men whose in most divine self shall be enfolded in raptures of the infinite. Let my worship be in the heart that rejoices, for behold all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. Therefore let be strength and beauty, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.

And thou who thinkest to seek me, know that all thy seeking and thy yearning shall avail thee naught unless that if which thou seekest though find first within yourself, thou will never find it without thee. For behold, I have been with thee from the beginning and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.
