Marguerite Porete (died 1 June 1310) was a French mystic and the author of The Mirror of Simple Souls, a work of Christian spirituality dealing with the workings of Divine Love.. She was brunt at the stake for heresy in Paris in 1310 after a lengthy trial, after refusing to remove her book from circulation or recant her views.. The book is cited as one the primary texts of the medieval Heresy of the Free Spirit...UVALL, VUAL, or VOVAL 47th Spirit Uvall, or Vual, or Voval. He is a Duke, Great, Mighty, and Strong; and appeareth in the Form of a Mighty Dromedary at the first, but after a while at the Command of the Exorcist he putteth on Human Shape, and speaketh the Egyptian Tongue, but not perfectly..His Office is to procure the Love of Woman, and to tell Things Past, Present, and to Come. He also procureth Friendship between Friends and Foes.. He was of the Order of Potestates or Powers. He governeth 37 Legions of Norwegian Spirits...

Circles may or may not be physically marked out on the ground, and a variety of elaborate patterns for circle markings can be found in grimoires and magical manuals, often involving angelic and divine names. Such markings, or a simple unadorned circle, may be drawn in chalk or salt, or indicated by other means such as with a cord..The 4 cardinal directions are often prominently marked, such as with 4 candles.. In ceremonial magic traditions the 4 directions are commonly related to the 4 ARCHangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel (or Auriel), or the 4 classical elements, and also have 4 associated names of G.. OTher ceremonial traditions have candles between the quarters, i.e. in the north-east, north-west and so on.. Often, an incantation will be recited stating the purpose and nature of the circle, often repeating an assortment of divine and angelic names..In Scottish folklore, Sunwise or Sunward (clockwise) was considered the “prosperous course”, turning from east to west in the direction of the sun.. The opposite course was known in Scotland as widdershins (Lowland Scots), or tuathal (Scottish Gaelic, lit. northerly), and would have been counterclockwise.. It is perhaps no coincidence that, in the Northern Hemisphere, "sunwise" and "clockwise" run in the same direction. This is probably because of the use of the sun as a timekeeper on sundials etc., whose features were in turn transferred to clock faces themselves..To go counter-clockwise, to go anti-clockwise, or to go lefthandwise, or to walk around an object by always keeping it on the left. i.e. literally, it means to take a course opposite the apparent motion of the sun viewed from the Arctic Circle.. In Robert Lewis Stevenson's tale, "The Song of the Morrow," an old crone on the beach dances "widdershins"..The Bönpo in the Northern Hemisphere traditionally circumambulate (generally) in a counter-clockwise and 'widdershins' direction, that is a direction that runs counter to the apparent movement of the Sun within the sky from the vantage of ground. This runs counter to the prevalent directionality of Buddhism (in general) and orthodox Hinduism. This is in keeping with the aspect and directionality of the 'Sauvastika' (yung-drung), sacred to the Bönpo.. In the Southern Hemisphere, the Bonpo practitioner is required to elect whether the directionality of 'counter-clockwise' (deosil in the Southern Hemisphere) or running-counter to the direction of the Sun (widdershins in the Southern Hemisphere) is the key intention of the tradition.. The resolution to this conundrum is left open to the practitioner, their 'intuitive insight' (Sanskrit: prajna) and their tradition..that literally means ."continuous movement" and is commonly translated as "cyclic existence", "Cycle of Existence", etc.. libre et libertin, sacrifice et hommage;De ma virginité recevez les louanges!Votre empire triomphe sur mon pucelage,Paradis de la boue, empire de la fange!Dieu libre et libertin, sacrifice ET hommage..Satyre se moquant des femmes légitimes..La mort est une blague, et l’amour trop comique...
