An Introduction to the Aeon of Horus... In 1904, a new law and formula for living was given to the human race by the Primary Trinity of Ancient Egypt: Nuit Hadit Ra-Hoor-Khuit
The Book of the Law Delivered to Aleister Crowley on April 8, 9 & 10, 1904 by a praeterhuman intelligence calling himself Aiwass. It heralds the return of the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt to their reign of mankind after centuries of darkness. It proclaims a new ruler of Earth, Ra Hoor Khuit, Lord of the Sun and a new formula, the Law of Thelema: Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.
The Summons from Our Lady of the Stars, Nuit... Now you shall know that the chosen priest and apostle of infinite space is the prince- priest, the Beast… Obey my prophet! Follow out the ordeals of my knowledge! Seek me only! Then the joys of my love will redeem ye from all pain. This is so: I swear it from the vault of my body…
The Task from Her Lord and Consort, the Omnipresent Hadit. Behold! The rituals of the old time are black. Let the evil ones be cast away; let the good ones be purged by the prophet! Then shall this knowledge go aright. I am the flame that burns in every heart of man and in the core of every star. I am Life, and the giver of Life… I am the Snake that giveth Knowledge & Delight and bright glory, and stir the hearts of men with drunkenness. To worship me take wine & strange drugs whereof I will tell my prophet and be drunk thereof! They shall not harm ye at all… But remember, o chosen one, to be me; to follow the love of Nu in the star-lit heaven; to look forth upon men, to tell them this glad word.
Their First Child, The Lord of the Sun, Ra-Hoor-Khuit Beware! Hold! Raise the spell of Ra-Hoor- Khuit!…I am a god of War and of Vengeance Worship me with fire and blood…with swords and spears…Let the woman be girt with a sword before me… Fear not at all…Nu is your refuge as Hadit your light; and I am the strength, force, vigour of your arms. Unity uttermost showed! I adore the might of Thy breath, Supreme and terrible God, Who makest the gods and death To tremble before Thee:- I, I adore thee!
The law of Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. Love is the law, love under will. There is no law beyond Do What Thou Wilt.
Magick: An Introduction The Art and Science of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will. A beginners guide to the Occult Sciences and the Law of Thelema. From the teachings of Aleister Crowley
Aleister Crowley - The Magician Adorned in his crown & magickal robe and armed with~ Wand, Cup, Sword, Disk and Lamp Stele, Bell, Book and Holy Oil… Prepared to undertake THE GREAT WORK
The Weapons of the Magician The Disk The Disk, symbolic of the elemental force of Earth, is the magicians foundation. It is his Nourishment and his earthly life. He inscribes a symbol of the All on the Disk, to show his Universe… All phenomena are sacraments of the Disk
The Weapons of the Magician The Sword The sword, symbolizing the force of Air, is the magicians human will, his intellect and his power to think and analyze himself and his existence. It is used externally on the physical plane to divide conquer his enemies. It is used on the astral plane to subject the spirits to the Will of the magician. Only the simple can withstand the sword.
The Weapons of the Magician The Cup The Cup is for the force of Water and is a glyph for the magicians understanding of his environment, it is his link with the Unseen. Understanding is like unto Quicksilver, it cannot be grasped, only contained passively in a vessel. The cup does not contain infinite volume; its contents must be spilled over to others.
The Weapons of the Magician The Wand The wand is the weapon of the Divine Will; the highest active weapon of the magician. It is a replica of his highest aspiration: to surrender to and to unite with the beloved. The will must be trained and fortified by the Holy Oath. With the wand does the magician become like unto a god, with all the attendant powers and responsibilities.
The Weapons of the Magician The Lamp The lamp is the weapon of Spirit, that which creates, controls and harmonizes the four primary weapons. It burns without wick or oil, being fed by the Aethyr. It maintains the balance of Tetragrammaton, the four-part essence of existence. Eternal, unconfined, unextended, without cause and without effect, the Holy Lamp mysteriously burns.
The Weapons of the Magician The Temple represents the external Universe and the Magician must take is as he finds it: indoors or outdoors, simple or elaborate, it must enhance the Magicians sense of rightness. The Circle is the symbol of the external aura of the Magician; within is his home, without are the hostile forces which would destroy him.
The Weapons of the Magician The Altar is the solid fixed basis of the Magicians work. Upon it are placed his weapons, above it hangs the lamp. It must conform to his nature and to the nature of the universe. The Robe is generally of either black or white and is that which conceals and protects the magician.
The Weapons of the Magician The Book of Spells or conjurations is the record of every thought, word and deed of the magician. The Bell summons and alarms and sounds at the elevation of the Host, it calls the Universe to attend to the Holy Will of the magician. The Crown is a band of jeweled gold; a serpent-entwined glyph of the kundalini. It represents the attainment of the Magicians work.
Nuit Hadit Ra-Hoor-Khuit The Sun, Strength and Sight, Light; these are for the Servants of the Star & the Snake.
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.
