Thelema – A world view
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
A sincere ‚Hello‘ to all!
„The word of the Law is Θελημα.“ – AL I:39
Θελημα = Thelema = Will = 93 = αγάπη = Love
Anyone who has the ‚Liber Oz | LXXVII‘ has read understands and accepts for itself needs no further explanation.
And yet it can be easily misunderstood. To live according to the law, you do not necessarily belong to a Thelemic Order. Let’s put it this way: For some, it can simplify the work of the ‚Great Work‘, for others it may well also be an obstacle to one’s own path. Therefore, no one can say whether this way ‚in this life‘ is right, wrong, or good for you. The best (I know) method is to thoroughly deal with this issue and then make a decision for themselves. It may be THE choice for your own life. And so every other decision taken, this can cause the way also.
How lives a Thelemite? Or rather, how could he live? In the beginning: ‚Do what thou wilt‘ does not mean: ‚Do as you please! It must be understood first, you want to understand the basic concept of Thelema / and / The ‚Liber Oz‘. Therefore is the first (open) secret of Magick:
The vernacular saying: ‚On your own eye one is blind‘. It is more likely, to see the mistakes of other people and maybe to criticise them. Until to a certain degree of this is true. Until one has recognized that it should go about exploring his own strengths and weaknesses.
Your strengths are your base. And now it is a matter to change your own weaknesses into strengths. If you are someone who is afraid to speak to several people, then look for ways to do just that, etc, etc.
A Thelemite should educate themselves as a priority, guide and direct (learn). It can therefore never be to educate other people and to mold them in his own image, because:
‚Every man and every woman is a star.‘ – AL I:3
„So self-control is not the enemy of freedom, but what makes it possible.“
(From: ‚The Heart of the Master‘, by Khaled Khan)
„Who calls us Thelemites will do no wrong, if he look but close into the word.“ – AL I:40
„Remember all ye that existence is pure joy; that all the sorrows are but as shadows; they pass & are done; but there is that which remains.“ – Al II:9
It’s no secret. Fraternal band is forged by his own work and doing.
Love is the law, love under will.
