Speak I of ancient Atlantis, speak of the days of the Kingdom of Shadows, speak of the coming of the children of the shadows. Out of the great deep were they called by the wisdom of Earth-man, called for the purpose of gaining great power.
Far in the past before Atlantis existed, men there were who delved into darkness, using dark magic, calling up beings from the great deep below us. Forth come they into this cycle, formless were they, of another vibration, existing unseen by the children of the Earth-men. Only through blood could they form being, only through man could they live in the world.
In ages past were they conquered by the Masters, driven below to the place whence they came. But some there were who remained, hidden in spaces and planes unknown to man. Live they in Atlantis as shadows, but at times they appeared among men. Aye, when the blood was offered, forth they came to dwell among men.
In the form of man moved they amongst us, but only to sight, were they as are men. Serpent-headed when the glamor was lifted, but appearing to man as men among men. Crept they into the councils, taking form that were like unto men. Slaying by their arts the chiefs fo the kingdoms, taking their form and ruling o’er man. Only by magic could they be discovered, only by sound could theri faces be seen. Sought they from the kingdom of shadows, to destroy man and rule in his place.
But know ye, the Masters were mighty in magic, able to life the veil from the face of the serpent, able to send him back to his place. Came they to man and taught him the secret, the Word that only a man can pronounce; swift then they lifted the veil from the serpent and cast him forth from place among men.
Yet, beware, the serpent still liveth in a place that is open, at times, to the world. Unseen they walk among thee in places where the rites have been said; again as time passes onward, shall they take the semblance of men.
Called, may they be, by the master who knows the white or the black, but only the white master may control and bind them while in the flesh.
Seek not the kingdom of shadows, for evil will surely appear, for only the master of brightness shall conquer the shadow of fear.
Know ye, O my brother, that fear is an obstacle great; be mast of all in the brightness, the shadow will soon disappear. Hear ye, and heed my wisdom, the voice of LIGHT is clear, seek the valley of shadow and light only will appear.
