„But let no one imagine that those in authority will urge probationers to work hard.
Those who are incapable of hard work may indeed be pushed along, but the moment that the pressure is removed they will fall back, and it is not the purpose of the A. A. to do anything else than to make its students independent and free.
Full instruction has been placed within the reach of everybody; let them see to it that they make full use of that instruction.“

Можеме да ги откриваме скриените митологеми во книжевните дела, да ги објаснуваме, колку што можеме, митските симболи; на крајот, сепак, ќе остане вртоглавата бездна на последното прашање што останува без одговор или чии одговори страотно се умножуваат, не дозволувајќи ни да ги стигнеме и ние сфаќаме дека она што не привлекува и не вовлекува во таа игра е всушност недостасливоста на конечната разврска на значењата.
А еден од најмногу толкуваните и најмногу анализираните митови митот за Едип покажува јасно како поминуваат оние што сметаат дека имаат одговор за сите прашања.

It is a necessity of incarnation that, bellow the Abyss, polarity is established between this and that, good and bad, truth and falsehood. Otherwise, the ego could not function and we would be engulfed in chaos; the mind, unable to create distinction for the purpose of organization, would disintegrate. Thus, it is said that below the Abyss, Reason is Lord.

„Each soul is potentially divine.
The goal is to manifest this divinity by controlling nature, external and internal.
Do this either by work, or worship, or psychic control, or philosophy – by one, or more, or all of these – and be free. This is the whole of religion. Doctrines, or dogmas, or rituals, or books, or temples, or forms, are but secondary details.“

„Liberty stirs once more in the womb of Time.
Evolution makes its changes by anti-Socialistic ways. The “abnormal” man who foresees the trend of the times and adapts circumstance intelligently, is laughed at, persecuted, often destroyed by the herd; but he and his heirs, when the crisis comes, are survivors.
Above us today hangs a danger never yet paralleled in history. We suppress the individual in more and more ways. We think in terms of the herd. War no longer kills soldiers; it kills all indiscriminately. Every new measure of the most democratic and autocratic govenments is Communistic in essence. It is always restriction. We are all treated as imbecile children. Dora, the Shops Act, the Motoring Laws, Sunday suffocation, the Censorship— they won’t trust us to cross the roads at will.
Fascism is like Communism, and dishonest into the bargain. The dictators suppress all art, literature, theatre, music, news, that does not meet their requirements; yet the world only moves by the light of genius. The herd will be destroyed in mass.
The establishment of the Law of Thelema is the only way to preserve individual liberty and to assure the future of the race.“

„In the Hermetic account of creation in the first treatise of the Corpus, called the Pimander, Camillo had read of how the demiurge fashioned ‘the Seven Governors who envelop with their circles the sensible world’. He quotes this passage, in Ficino’s Latin, stating that he is quoting ‘Mercurio Trismegisto nel Pimandro’, and adding this remark:
And in truth since the divinity produced out of itself these seven
measures, it is a sign that they were always implicitly contained
within the abyss of the divinity.
The Seven Governors of the Hermetic Pimander are thus behind those seven measures upon which Camillo founds his Theatre and which have their continuation into the Sephiroth, into the abyss of the divinity. The seven are more than planets in the astrological sense; they are divine astral beings.
After the Seven Governors have been created and set in motion there comes in the Pimander the account of the creation of man, which differs radically from the account in Genesis.
For the Hermetic man is created in the image of God in the sense that he is given the divine creative power. When he saw the newly created Seven Governors, the Man wished also to produce a work and ‘permission to do this was given him by the Father’.
Having thus entered into the demiurgic sphere in which he had full power… the Governors fell in love with him, and each gave to him a part in their own rule.“

„On the Path of the Wise there is probably no danger more deadly, no poison more pernicious, no seduction more subtle than Spiritual Pride; it strikes, being solar, at the very heart of the Aspirant; more, it is an inflation and exacerbation of the Ego, so that its victim runs the peril of straying into a Black Lodge, and finding himself at home there.”

The Torah, as the Kabbalists conceived it, is consequently not separate from the divine essence, not created in the strict sense of the word; rather, it is something that represents the secret life of God, which the Kabbalistic emanation theory was an attempt to describe. In other words, the secret life of God is projected into the Torah; its order is the order of the Creation.
This most secret aspect of the Torah, or one might say, the Torah
in its occult form, is sometimes referred to in the Kabbalistic literature of the thirteenth century as torah kedumah, the primordial Torah, and is sometimes identified with God’s hokhmah (sophia)…

Добредојде ти, Жено, те поздравуваме како Ѕвезда!
Добредојде на лумпување и веселба!
Добредојде во борба и на гозба!
Добредојде на бдеење и победа!
Добредојде во страст и громогласна смеа!
Добредојде на трпеза и в кревет!
Добредојде на тажење и смрт!
Ние телемитите сме оние кои вистински ја сакаат и почитуваат Жената, кои ја сметаат подеднакво безгрешна и бесрамна како што сме и ние самите; а оние кои што велат дека ја презираме, се оние кои бегаат од замавот на нашите сабји со кои ги раскинуваме зарѓаните окови од нејзините нозе!
