Listen to the words of the Great Father, who of old was called Pan, Iesu, SunLord, Osiris, Adonis, Zeus, Thor, Cernunnos, Herne, Lugh and by many other names:
My Law is Harmony with all things.
Mine is the secret that opens the gates of life
And mine is the dish of salt of the earth that is the body of Pan
That is the eternal circle of rebirth.
I give the knowledge of life everlasting,
And beyond death I give the promise of regeneration and renewal.
I am the sacrifice, the father of all that might be,
Of the unseen, of soaring imagination and dreams of the soul,
And my protection blankets the earth.
Hear the words of dancing Pan, the music of whose laughter stirs the winds, whose voice calls the seasons:
I who am the Lord of the Hunt and the Power of the Light,
Sun among the clouds and the secret of the flame,
I call upon your bodies to arise and come unto me.
For I am the energy of Life and all beings.
Through me all things must die and with me are reborn.
Let my worship be in the body that sings,
For behold all acts of willing sacrifice are my rituals.
Let there be desire and fear, anger and weakness,
Joy and peace, awe and longing within you.
For these too are part of the mysteries found within yourself;
I am the spark within the soul of every being, the giver of Life.
Yet is the knowledge of me the knowledge of death, the Lord within yourself.
My name is Transcendence for within me, all beginnings have endings
And all endings have beginnings.
