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:
