Thelemic magick is a system of physical, mental, and spiritual exercises which practitioners believe are of benefit. Crowley defined magick as “the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will”

The System of Thelema begins with The Book of the Law, which bears the official name Liber AL vel Legis…This small book contains three chapters, each of which he wrote in exactly one hour, beginning at noon, on April 8, April 9, and April 10, 1904. ALeister Crowley states that he took dictation from an entity named Aiwass, whom he later identified as his own Holy Guardian Angel.

Every individual has a True Will, to be distinguished from the ordinary wants and desires of the ego. The True Will is essentially one’s “calling” or “purpose” in life”

One may compare or understand one's True Will; in pure form is nothing other than Divine Will. Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law, which does NOT mean fulfilling everyday desires, but to acting in response to that calling.

“Thelema draws its principal gods and goddesses from Ancient Egyptian religion.”

(1) Highest deity – Goddess Nuit (night sky arched over the Earth symbolized in the form of a naked woman)

(2) Second deity – God Hadit (Hadit symbolizes manifestation, motion, and time. He is also described in Liber AL vel Legis as “the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star’)

(3) Third Deity – Ra-Hoor-Khuit (or Horus) (symbolized as a throned man with the head of a hawk who carries a wand. He is associated with the Sun and the active energies of Thelemic magick)

There will be another discussion on the deities of Thelema and how Thelemites may view them.

One goal in the study of Thelema within the magical Order of the A∴A∴ is for the magician to obtain the knowledge and conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel; conscious communication with their own personal daimon, thus gaining knowledge of their True Will. The chief task for one who has achieved this goes by the name of “crossing the abyss”; completely relinquishing the ego.”

Duty is described as “A note on the chief rules of practical conduct to be observed by those who accept the Law of Thelema.”…There are 4 sections:

  • Your Duty to Self: describes the self as the center of the universe, with a call to learn about one’s inner nature. Admonishes the reader to develop every faculty in a balanced way, establish one’s autonomy, and to devote oneself to the service of one’s own True Will.
  • Your Duty to Others: An admonishment to eliminate the illusion of separateness between oneself and all others, to fight when necessary, to avoid interfering with the Wills of others, to enlighten others when needed, and to worship the divine nature of all other beings.
  • Your Duty to Mankind: States that the Law of Thelema should be the sole basis of conduct. That the laws of the land should have the aim of securing the greatest liberty for all individuals. Crime is described as being a violation of one’s True Will.
  • Your Duty to All Other Beings and Things: States that the Law of Thelema should be applied to all problems and used to decide every ethical question. It is a violation of the Law of Thelema to use any animal or object for a purpose for which it is unfit, or to ruin things so that they are useless for their purpose. Natural resources can be used by man, but this should not be done wantonly, or the breach of the law will be avenged. For instance, deforestation can cause soil erosion.”
