Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

“Also one V.V.V.V.V. arose, an exalted adept of the rank of Master of the Temple (or this much He disclosed to the Exempt Adepts) and His utterance is enshrined in the Sacred Writings.”–Liber LXI, v. 29

The Frater Superior of O.T.O. wrote that The Holy Books of Thelema “have a way of unfolding within the reader, of not only retaining, but increasing their relevance. . . Written, as they were, on the most exalted planes of existence . . . and can awaken, as if by sympathetic resonance, promptings toward similar experiences in the receptive reader.” They are classed by the A.’.A.’. in Class A, which “consists of books of which may be changed not so much as the style of a letter: that is, they represent the utterance of an Adept entirely beyond the criticism of even the Visible Head of the Organization.”

While those who discuss the contents of the first among the Holy Books, Liber AL, are “to be shunned by all, as centres of pestilence,” the same injunction does not hold for the other Holy Books. Please join us as we continue our discussion of Liber LXV, the Book of the Heart Girt with the Serpent, which Crowley described as “an account of the relations of the Aspirant with his Holy Guardian Angel.” In future classes we plan to discuss the other Holy Books, including, Liber VII, Liber Trigrammaton, Liber Tau, Liber A’ash, and Liber Tzaddi, to name a few. We will announce which book or books we will be discussing before each meeting.

Come join us on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at Scarlet Woman Lodge. “And they that read the book and debated thereon passed into the desolate land of Barren Words. And they that sealed up the book into their blood were the chosen of Adonai, and the Thought of Adonai was a Word and a Deed; and they abode in the Land that the far-off travellers call Naught.”–LXV, v. 59

Love is the law, love under will.
