HennaThere is no greater mistake

than to have the power to know Atum

and not to use it.

Simply wishing and hoping to know him

is a road that leads straight to Goodness.

It is an easy road to travel.

Everywhere Atum will come to meet you.

Look and he appears-

at times and places when you least expect.

While you are awake or asleep.

When you travel by water or land.

By night or by day.

Whilst you are speaking or silent.

This is because

Atum is All.

Hermetica, attributed to Thoth
