  1. Do What Thou Wilt

    Of course there isn't, and initiation into the book wasn't even mentioned by the individual you misquoted. No, it doesn't. No, they don't. Until actualization occurs we're running through trained programming - perhaps with the illusion we're acting out our own will. This reads in a rather adolescent manner, and I'd honestly like to see and engage in deeper exploration.
  2. Do What Thou Wilt

    Interesting, as in this, our timing and conclusions correspond. Although mine was tempered with a further understanding I could really mess myself up with incorrect understanding of what I'd read.
  3. Do What Thou Wilt

    As the book was written in 1904, you are correct. The prophetic aspects are believed to have already come to pass. And no, the individuals you've come gunning for in this thread are not ignorant of this. We're also pointing to a more subtle internal and individual mapping of the process layed out in the book - coupled with the larger external societal structuring it highlights, delineates, and gives name to.

    So, once again The Book of the Law was quoted, and yet any further discussion of it was thwarted and derailed. There's so much subtlety, nuance, and context missing in what's been presented and how it's been presented. And there are soo many different lose strings which could be pulled to unravel what's been woven together.

    Perhaps, as I certainly can't see what you're getting on about. Would you care to explain?
  6. Do What Thou Wilt

    Could somebody translate the above for me..
  7. First I thought to award "points" for using a word I didn't know and had to look up. Then I looked it up, and realized I was good with not knowing. Damn my curiosity.
  8. Do What Thou Wilt

    Yeah, it was the era... I do rather like the imagery of the dropping veils though, to me it's a bit like the painting sacred and profane love...

    And apparently to some she has not yet revealed herself.. so they cling to words they don't understand with (false) claims of understanding - falling to the damnable realms of "Because" with the yoke of erroneous reasoning holding them fast. This is kinda fun.
  10. I was curious how we went from "yay innovative white folks" to technological comparisons with "non war faring people." Seems the goal post has shifted..
  11. Thus echoed the mulititudinous voice of the second Aeon...
  12. Did you really just tell ralis to read history??? He's the only one here I could assuredly say has read more history than myself... "Led the charge in [...] civilization." Yes, by determining "others" were "barbarians," "heathens," or whatever other euphimism enabled them to be viewed as "lesser" and treated accordingly - for "their own good" of course.
  13. Do What Thou Wilt

    "Deliver us from the evil and the good," to me is transcendent - not permissive. If one is still contemplating defilement and ruin then they have not transcended, and the words are no more than empty excuse.
  14. Do What Thou Wilt

    Nungali has pointed out something of importance which manitou also alluded to.. this "law" applies when a certain point in one's spiritual path has been reached. Prior to this point it's still the following of an external law, and a bit of a parody (and in this falls into the second Aeon [patriarchal ruling structure] and hasn't yet reached the third [self-actualized] Aeon) imo.
  15. In the light spectrum white exhibits the wave lengths of "all" color, and black is simply the absence of light. This "group" was created by men/ women giving name (with meaning to themselves) to a hierarchy they created and claimed to speak for, and have connection to. It was simply self elevation imo, and is completely unnecessary, and anathema to some here. Oh my stars!!
