Hear ye the words of the Star Goddess
The dust of whose feet are the hosts of the heaven
She whose body encircles the Universe:
I am the beauty of the green earth
And the white moon among the stars
And the mystery of the waters
And the desire of human hearts.
Call unto your soul,
Arise and come unto me
For I am the soul of nature
Who gives life to the Universe
From me all things proceed
And unto me all things must return.
Before my face, beloved of all
Let your divine innermost self be enfolded
In the rapture of the infinite.
Let my worship be in the heart that rejoices
For behold, all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals
And therefore let there be beauty and strength
Power and compassion, honor and pride
Mirth and reverence among you.
And you who think to seek for me
Know your seeking and yearning shall avail you not
Unless you know the Mystery:
That if that which you seek you find not within you,
You will never find it without.
For behold, I have been with you from the beginning
And I am that which is attained
At the end of desire.
