Much like the religions Crowley stole from, and built his pseudo-
religion upon, many of his theories are presently falling apart at
the seams. The concept of The Vision & The Voice is dependent on the
belief that Hebrew language is a divine manifestation that bears
absolute truth within its words. The general belief within qabalistic
circles is the letters of the Hebrew alphabet are the letters of
creation, and that when spoken aloud for the first time by Yahweh,
the Universe was created. Paleographical research shows the Hebrew
alphabet evolved from proto-scripts that were inpired by
Egyptian hieroglyphics, and quite possibly invented by the Egyptian
priests. Weighing the available data makes it difficult to believe
there is any truth to Crowley's theory that Abrahadabra breaks down
into a sub-group of Hebrew words that impart mystical truth.
Like many others, you obviously sense a spark of truth in some of
the writings of Crowley, and I'm not trying to discourage your
thelemic studies. The challenge is not in standing in line to kiss
the Beastly-buttocks, but in wading through the Herd (watch your
step!) with the intention of uncovering the deceptions and delusions
circulating among its members in an effort to unveil the truth.

Can only speak from own personal experience. Performing one's True Will is the bottom line. A mind that is concerned with success is just as bound and tied up as a mind that is concerned with failure....bottom line, perform one's True Will and be not concerned with the end result. Being indifferent and unattached to results helps one perform actions. To many times the mind becomes warped with thoughts like "will this really work" or "what will others think"....The issue is not the end result----the issue is performing one's True Will. Unless one acts on True Will, you might as well be sitting in the Abyss.
