The intent of this pathworking is to turn the caster into an Avatar, the embodiment of the 8 virtues.

These 8 virtues are:

  • Compassion

These Virtues when combined form the Principles of Courage, Love, and Truth.

Courage is the will to struggle, for beliefs and for others , and is formed of the Virtues of Honour, Sacrifice, Spirituality, and Valour.

Love is the empathic bond that unites the self to all others, and is formed of the Virtues of Compassion, Justice, Sacrifice, and Spirituality.

Truth is the objective reality, that which is not false, and is formed of the Virtues of Honesty, Honour, Justice, and Spirituality.

The working:

The working itself should be carried out over an extended time, eg 8 weeks - one week dedicated to each virtue, plus one additional day for the final rite.

Pick one virtue and create the appropriate rune (see above), colour it in its colour. For the remaining week continue meditating upon that virtue and act accordingly. Do this with all the 8 runes.

In the end create the sigil of the codex of ultimate wisdom. Before you start drawing the sigil, open the rite with the word of passage, Veramocor. When drawing the lines chant the mantra of the corresponding virtue along with the statement you will find below. The white outer circle is for Humility, the white inner centre is for Spirituality.
