The Sacred Constitution has remained virtually unchanged in regard to rituals and ceremonies. Other parts have been changed and revised to meet the needs of the society in the changing and evolving modern world. It has also been updated to fit current standards of English spelling and grammar.

 

PREAMBLE

 

We, the members of Chi Xi Psi, Secret and Eternal Society, in the belief that the only road to survival lies in secrecy and standing apart from the perversion of the outer society, do stand to represent the freedom of the human soul, opposing any encroachment of convention upon the lives of free individuals, and supporting the cause of all rightful martyrs, in the name of Joining, in the name of the Strange and Unknown, and in the name of Spirit.

 

 

ARTICLE ONE NAME

 

The name of this Soiety is Chi Xi Psi, taken from the first letters of the words Khümeia, Xenos, and Psükhe, the things for which we stand. The individual houses of the society will have two-letter names of Psi followed by another letter from the Greek alphabet. If the situation arises in which all the letters have been used, then they will be recycled and names will be repeated. All houses will use the name of their village, town, parish, shire, or city as a tag for identification, therefore, repeating names will not cause any sort of conflict or confusion.

 

 

ARTICLE TWO PURPOSE

 

The purpose of this society is to give all members the rights they truly deserve. We, Chi Xi Psi, believe that conventional society is perverted and we can only be free if we stand apart from it. We, Chi Xi Psi, are a secret society dedicated to the support of martyrs to all causes, and dedicated to the survival of our own secret customs and traditions.

 

 

ARTICLE THREE POLICIES

 

Section One

All contents of this constitution are secret, restricted to members of the society only. They may not be shown to anyone else. All rites, rituals, and ceremonies, are also secret, and so are all chants and pledges.

 

Section Two

All rituals, ceremonies, and rites herein are to be performed the way they are written, and any alteration is prohibited. These ceremonies are restricted to participation by society members only.

 

Section Three

Although we are all living in one country or another, we believe the laws of all countries are undemocratic, and therefore we will not subject ourselves to them, but only to our own. When a member breaks a law of any given country, but not a law of Chi Xi Psi, we will protect the member and protect the member's rights of freedom, secrecy, privacy, and survival. If, however, the member is caught by the law, and we are unable to do anything more, then the member will be declared a martyr, and the member's deeds will be recorded with honour.

After two hours, the innitiate will be removed from the water. The sacred Robes will be removed and dried while the innitiate walks two thousand paces wearing nothing. Then the robes will be returned, and the innitiate will be given an ounce of dust and an ounce of salt to eat. Then they will all return to the house, and the innitiate will be given a kiss on the tailbone by the educator. Then the innitiate will be required to disrobe, and receive ten lashes to the back with the sacred whip and ten strikes to the rear with the sacred paddle. Then the innitiate will be painted with wine with the sacred brush, every part of the anatomy.

Khumeia i gyd khumeia.

Cyfrinach xenos cadw.

Psükhe rhad byw.

Fare thee well on thy journey

To the land beyond.

May the dog be your guide,

May the cat be at your side.

May the raven give you protection,

May the halibut aid your resurrection.
