Thinking on Crowley
When speaking on Aleister Crowley with a friend Mentioned the Flowing thoughts on his work and Him as a man . as we all have our high points and we All have some weakness , Intelligent Men are often Arrogant to a flaw .
I do believe much of his work was vilified by the Victorian Christian press of the Turn of the 20th century .
And he did not so much help himself with his public image. He left a huge body of work. Add experimented with things others only dream of. But it was his ability to not separate ego from will That forever hobbled much of his experiments. And even clouded his perception of the results. And when reading his body of work You should never take it as face value fact. You should look at it is research notes to expand upon. And thank you for his poem and the image. It is 1 of my favorites as well Him and his youth and strength and vinegar. And not tired desperate and fat old man that he had become in his twilight years. Living out the caricature of public opinion that he had became. A sort of turn crank watch monkey dance That he put on whatever there was a crowd.
It was all symbolic of course . and in the symbolism the gateway of the omniverse is Seen .
What Crowley was fighting to understand Is that the Core of everything is the galactic powers of creation .This is not a random universe of Chaos, if it was not even the first atom would ever of formed . What we see are patterns of Highly evolved Creation effects , When one thing dissolves , it dose not pass from existence it is just becoming its next Form of creation . By using Drugs he was momentarily able to Forgo his Ego without the meditation and disciplined to do it with his mind . For on some lever His religious Victorian Upbringing kept telling him it was not possible . In his sexual rituals he was able to see to he universe internal constructs like shadows on the wall .Wile in a drugged exhausted state of Copulation , Where his Ego would momentarily fail and his mind would link in the act of creation , Intercourse . He failed to understand that these Galactic constructs are forever merged with emotion. Like a symbolic metaphor , It is not just the story it is the Full range of emotions they set in motion when you think of one are listening to the story for the first time . The early language were written in Hieroglyphs , Theses do not have a one word English equivalent , as each one was a metaphor a story and a moral with emotions . no one would see the Hieroglyphs for Isis and say the Goddess name as it was a familiarity that they dared not cross . as common men could never be on a first name basis with the gods . However she was the Great mother , the mother protector , The teacher , the healer . But most of all She was a metaphor for all these things . and when you see her Hieroglyph you did not think Isis but the Entire range of emotions she invoked . When studying Magick never try to Find the English , German, or Latin Equivalent for the Word as their is not one Learn the Metaphors and the full range of Emotions that the story metaphor set in your mind . For Magick is more emotion than ritual, Ritual is just a dance to Focus the thoughts , However With meditation and full understanding of emotions aspects you will see beyond the ritual , beyond the self , Where Love is the most powerful Emotion in magic , it is the full understanding of Creative force . and Do what thou wilt Is the whole of the Law.
Love is the Law, Love under Will.
Love and compassion must be the Foundation of Will.
No. "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Love is the law, love under will."
