Dear Bro. Paul,
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
You have made a truly excellent point and I thank you for your
wisdom. Nonetheless, I think there is still something here to
1. Crowley was indeed the Prophet, but was he the Prophet for all
time, or just for his time?
2. I agree that it was Crowley's intention that the rituals should
remain private. But again, is that relevant for today?
3. How long did Crowley intend for the rituals to remain private?
Should they be released now, or ten years from now? Or should they
be kept private for say, a thousand years?
These are questions that each Thelemite will have to answer for
himself. Perhaps like Bro. MacHaren suggested, we each have to
follow our own Will.
Love is the law, love under will.
Thanks and Blessings,

to the AA as I know it. they are like cookie filling or transmission
fluid for very particular aspects of instruction, and typically fulfill
their operating function within societal contexts. outside these contexts
one might be instructed without texts of any kind, devising them oneself
as one proceeds to receive instruction from the Secret Chiefs (or
whatever you'd prefer to call them).
