As Above So Below

Hold the symbol to your forehead
Close your eyes
Call the spirit of the symbol
Come to me
Call the symbols of the golden age
One by one
Call the water, fire, air and earth
Come to me
As above, so below
As above, so below
As above, so below
As above, so below
Behold the door appears before you
Walk on through
Observe the doorway now behind you
Look ahead
Call the spirit of the symbol
Come to me
Allow the deity to guide you
Follow me
As above, so below
As above, so below
As above, so below
As above, so below
A web of thought; of tangled vision
Humanity
Tear away the veil before me
Set me free
Tales to picture that you give to me
Memory
Tear away the minds that bind me
Liberty

    Hermes Trismegisto e sua celeste tábua de esmeralda
    Hermes Trismegisto escreveu
com uma ponta de diamante em uma lâmina de esmeralda
    O que está embaixo é como o que está no alto,
e o que está no alto é como o que está embaixo.
    E por essas coisas fazem-se os milagres de uma coisa só. 
E como todas essas coisas são e provêm de um
pela mediação do um, 
assim todas as coisas são nascidas desta única coisa por adaptação.
    O sol é seu pai, a lua é a mãe. 
O vento o trouxe em seu ventre. 
A terra é seu nutriz e receptáculo.
    O Pai de tudo, o Thelemeu do mundo universal está aqui.
O Pai de tudo, o Thelemeu do mundo universal está aqui.
    Sua força ou potência está inteira,
se ela é convertida em terra.
    Tu separarás a terra do fogo e o sutil do espesso,
docemente, com grande desvelo.
Pois Ele ascende da terra e descende do céu
e recebe a força das coisas superiores
e das coisas inferiores.
    Tu terás por esse meio a glória do mundo,
e toda obscuridade fugirá de ti.
e toda obscuridade fugirá de ti.
    É a força de toda força,
pois ela vencerá qualquer coisa sutil 
e penetrará qualquer coisa sólida. 
Assim, o mundo foi criado. 
Disso sairão admiráveis adaptações,
das quais aqui o meio é dado.
    Por isso fui chamado Hermes Trismegistro,
Por isso fui chamado Hermes Trismegistro,
    tendo as três partes da filosofia universal.

    ...from jorge ben's famous a tabua da esmeralda album. he basically put newton's translation to music (he added the thelema reference)...

    1. Tis true without lying, certain & most true.
    2. That which is below is like that which is above & that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracles of one only thing
    3. And as all things have been & arose from one by the mediation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation.
    4. The Sun is its father, the moon its mother, the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth is its nurse.
    5. The father of all perfection in the whole world is here.
    6. Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.
    7. Separate thou the earth from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry.
    8. It ascends from the earth to the heaven & again it descends to the earth & receives the force of things superior & inferior.
    9. By this means you shall have the glory of the whole world
    10. & thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.
    11. Its force is above all force. For it vanquishes every subtle thing & penetrates every solid thing.
    12. So was the world created.
    13. From this are & do come admirable adaptations whereof the means (or process) is here in this. Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world
    14. That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished & ended.
