Seek ever therefore in thy Work of the Promulgation of the Law to discover in each Man his own true Nature, that he may in due Season accomplish it not only for himself, but for all who are bound unto him.

Learn first that as the Thought of the Mind standeth before the Soul and hindereth its Manifestation in consciousness, so also the gross physical Will is the Creator of the Dreams of common Men, and as in Meditation thou doest destroy every Thought by mating it with its Opposite, so must thou cleanse thyself by a full and perfect Satisfaction of that bodily will in the Way of Chastity and Holiness which has been revealed unto thee in thy Initiation.

,iber Dearborn rated it liked it Oct 04, For me, the best book by Crowley ever. Thus in the Union of Similars, as of Halogens with each other, is no strong Passion of explosive Force, libee the Love between two Persons of the like Character and Taste is placid and without Transmutation to higher Planes.

So therefore every Marriage dissolveth a more material, and createth a less material Complex; and this is our Way of Live, rising ever from Ecstasy to Ecstasy. For we are born into a World which is in Bondage to Ideals; to them we are perforce fitted, even as the Enemies to the Bed of Procrustes.

Maxime Daher rated it really liked it Jun 16, Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Rick rated it it was amazing Sep 25, For the Work is to reduce all other conceptions to these of Number, because thus thou wilt lay bare the very Structure of thy Alsph, whose rule is Necessity rather than Prejudice.
