Fall from a High Place
written by Ramon Long aka Frater Nshyh
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law
In the past Aeon of the Dying God, the Universe was thought of as being catastrophic in nature. People toiled away in ignorance of their true wills. A pipe dream called Heaven and Hell was invented by the Sorcerer of Nazareth and his disciples. This delusion was meant to act as an opiate to the masses, to keep them passive and malleable. They became easy and willing prey.
In 1904 era vulgari, our holiest Book, entitled Liber AL vel Legis was received. Within this book, the formulae for new systems of Initiation, Magick, Mysticism, Royalty, and Society were revealed in 220 beautiful verses. All problems, all difficulties and ordeals, may be overcome by the right use of the Arcana within The Book of the Law.
And yet, look around you my Brothers and Sisters. Do you not see the pallor of Death hanging on the faces of those dark stars? They do not know Hadit? They are ignorant of the Star within. To them Death is synonymous with stagnation. Slowly, people are awakening to the possibilities of evolution beyond a single incarnation. More and more people are awakening to the Magick of the Aeon. By the proper understanding and application of Death, one learns to Live. With these Initiations comes an unfolding in the consciousness of the Magician as they learn that individual centers of consciousness can be found outside the confines of what we perceive as our physical bodies.
Most people won't reincarnate, at least not in the way they imagine. For these people, their center of consciousness is found within the genitals. As a result, they never realize their god-head. I do not condone self mutilation, as the Christist does. Instead, I recommend self discipline. If you are obsessed with your sexuality, you can never come to the true fulfillment of your lust. By making sexuality sacred, it becomes a means instead of an end in itself. Sex Magick is therefore impossible for those unable to discipline their libido. They cannot understand that virility depends on the quality, not the quantity, of orgasm. Such people are not ready to be trained in esoteric Alchemy and its application on the material plane through the channels of consecrated sexual union.
With the revelations of Liber AL came the disintegration of the occult currents within the temples of the old Aeon. Freemasonry, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Taoism, Judaism, Satanism, and a host of other empty husks are swept away with the Force and Fire of Θελημα. These institutions and crapulous creeds have lost the holy gnosis that once made them great. For Initiates able to comprehend the esoteric doctrines within these symbols, much may still be harvested. We must not become ignorant of history or those that have come before us. However, these Ways can only have relevance and meaning to those that have yet to awaken to the Science of Thelema. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the law, love under will.
Our Order has power and domination over all schools of Magick and Mysticism. These old formulae may be used to balance out certain aspects of the personality, or to resolve guilt complexes still howling in the mind. However, the Thelemite will quickly discard these empty husks as the playthings of Choronzon.
At times I grow weary, and tired. I see multitudes of deluded souls wondering about the face of this earth in ignorance.
As one advances along the path of Initiation, the Ordeals grow more intense as any Magician will tell you! You must be constantly aware, lest your faculties become enchanted by the mechanical currents. All of these discarded formulae offer nothing but Restriction.
Freemasonry, once a great and noble Order, has degenerated into a mere social club for its "initiates." They utilize substitute mysteries, for they have no true esoteric wisdom to communicate to the aspirant. Their rites are based on the outdated formula of self sacrifice.
Christianity is perhaps one of the most venomous and deadliest of adversaries threatening the New Aeon. I have never met a Christist that I have liked. Every single one of them possesses a disgusting aura, vampirized by the Qlipoth of their rotting savior. Anyone possessing the slightest bit of spiritual insight will see the follies of their hypnotism. Christianity has been scientifically proven to induce the disease known as alexythemia. Basically this disease makes it impossible for the afflicted to connect their emotions to their physical body. They are detached and broken. They are Qlipoth embodied in un-living flesh. Such disgusting wretches can be recognized by their continual habit of self destruction.
The Islamic fundamentalists are another terror worth keeping a watchful eye on. Their 'jihad' seeks to destroy everyone that refuses to acknowledge their god 'Allah.' Need I rant on and on about the sick fucks strapping bombs to their chests, and forcing little children to go on suicide missions? In the Middle East many people still live in the dark ages, except now they have automatic weapons.
I am tired of the Buddhists and their disdain for this world. They are almost as bad as the Christist! Existence is not sorrow nor is it suffering. Only those unable to comprehend their stellar nature could find comfort in the eight 'noble truths' of the Buddha. We Thelemites take our will and fill of life and love, for existence is pure joy.
Taoism has degenerated into the cult of the old man. The true Tao cannot be named, yet so many people try to do just that. Fortunately, I was able to find a Master in the Yellow Way and for 10 years I studied under him. Strict were his disciplines, yet the Karate I learned from him will always be a jewel to me. However, he was an exception. Karate and its related disciplines have been reduced to sport with the goal of accumulating trophies. Such is not the way of character development that I was taught.
From the minds of the once enlightened rabbis, we have inherited the Qabala, perhaps one of the greatest systems ever devised. The Jews have lost the Hidden Wisdom. Their tree of life is a burnt and blasted stump rotted through with worms and termites.
Satanism once proved itself to be a worthy vehicle of initiation during the era of the Slave Gods. Its antinomian philosophies gave the Initiate a way to transcend the cultural and spiritual morass of their time. It can still be used to slough off the contaminations of Nazareth, but the formulas of Θελημα are much more effective. Inherit within Satanism/Christianity is an irreconcilable duality. The once powerful name of Satan has become an object of ridicule.
All of these ways have fallen from a high place. They are now the playthings of Choronzon who tries to tempt the Magician by rearranging hallucination after hallucination. True Magick secrets cannot be communicated through dead letters; all that they can do is point you in the right direction. Holy Books are the result of rigorous Work and Discipline; they are not ends in themselves. The mysteries on sale at your local bookstore are not Mysteries at all- they are the cast off husks of a former glory.
Cast them aside, and bathe in the Fires of Θελημα!
Love is the law, love under will
