The Seven Guiding Principles

I haven't ran across what the guiding principles are in the writings on the website so what are they?

Can you tell me more about the 7 Guiding Principals given by Babalon?

We have only mentioned two of them in detail in the writings up to now. Chapter 8 of Book II of the Magickal Philosophy of Templum Babalonis has been written and completely describes them all, but has not been published online yet. This is due to the fact that there are a few unanswered questions about a number of items which must be answered before we publish. The vast majority of the material we receive in communications like this remains unpublished, and probably always will so. It is for the Initiates of proper degrees to read, after they have already discovered such things for themselves through their magickal working. This then is one of the proofs beyond a doubt of the efficacy of the Ophidian system, when it takes place. We are not certain at all how much we should publish concerning the Angels which oversee the Seven Guiding Principles, and that is one of the sticking points we are trying to work out. That is the long and the short of it. Many people have asked about them. Some are quite simple and elegant, others are mind-bendingly complex. All I can say at this time is that we hope to have them available very soon as they are very important to the Ophidian Cosmology.
