3 Definitions of True Will in Thelema

3 Definitions of True Will in Thelema

by IAO131 Although there are many disagreements, virtually all Thelemites recognize the centrality of True Will to the system of Thelema. Doing your Will is the "whole of the Law", there is "no law beyond" it, and you have "no right but to do" it. What is "it"? What exactly is

Waiting for the New Aeon is Like Waiting for the Next Coming of Christ

Waiting for the New Aeon is Like Waiting for the Next Coming of Christ

by Whiskey Stevens I have been a practicing Thelemite for 11 months now as February was the month I first met my mentor and began taking an academic track. Each time I have begun to waiver on my journey I receive dreams, sometimes they are reoccurring with the same dream happening

A Woman of Color in Thelema

A Woman of Color in Thelema

by Kelly N. AKA Keanu Tease Not guilty. I’m not shocked.  I’m upset.  I’m crying.  But I’m not shocked.  This trial was a joke from start to finish.  Murder is legal in the United States apparently, but only if you have the correct skin tone.  It’s over 400 years of systemic oppression

AL and LA: Thelema and the Death of God

AL and LA: Thelema and the Death of God

By Nic Laccetti Why was the Book of the Law renamed Liber AL vel Legis from Liber L vel Legis? More importantly, what is the meaning for us today of the interplay between AL and LA, “God” and “nothing,” as the key to the Thelemic holy book? It’s my contention that

What is Consensus Thelema?

Consensus Thelema

by Entelecheia Consensus Thelema is hard to define. It is nebulous by nature. But it also tends to disguise itself as its opposite: lack of consensus, radical individualism, creative self-expression, iconoclasm, and an uncompromising advocacy of non-conformity. It’s like a force field that permeates the Thelemic community. It’s conspicuous when you

If Aleister Crowley wants to be Priestess, he should write his own ritual

If Aleister Crowley wants to be Priestess, he should write his own ritual

by Soror Puella Dux This article is referring to OTO's decision to limit the Gnostic Mass roles to certain genders (Priest must be male, Priestess must be female), a gender essentialist position which also relegates non-binary individuals to the Deacon Sacerdote position. And yes, this article is satire. Thelema is all about

The Multiplicity of Thelemas

The Multiplicity of Thelemas

by Vincent St. Clare I’ve been accused a few times of trying to turn Thelema into something it’s not, of attempting to somehow create for myself a type of Thelema that fits my own version of how this philosophy and spiritual path should operate. While I’ll concede that I’ve come to

Aleister Crowley Cancelled? The Farce of “Post-Thelema”

Aleister Crowley Cancelled? The Farce of "Post-Thelema"

by Brother Sol-Om-On A "Post-Thelema Manifesto" has been making the rounds lately in Thelemic social media circles. Some seem to be treating this as some kind of significant document, saying something new and exciting. I should state, first of all, that I welcome any new texts, articles, or "Manifestos" out of

Capitalism, Magick and the Law of Thelema

Capitalism, Magick and the Law of Thelema

by Anonymous Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. The Law of Thelema and Thelemic values stand diametrically opposed to Capitalism.   Therefore, it also stands against all forces and tributaries that nourish and support Capitalism, whose deliberate fabrication, orchestration and execution saw to its inception and see to

Thelema as a Path of Erotic Liberation

Thelema as a Path of Erotic Liberation

by Entelecheia Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. This article represents an attempt to interpret Thelema as a coherent path of spiritual liberation. This reconstruction resolves two problems of Thelema interpretation, what I have called the Coherence Problem and the Liberation Problem. I also believe it is
