Aleister Crowley

The book of the law

The Book of the Law or Liber AL vel Legis is the central sacred text of Thelema, written down from dictation mostly by Aleister Crowley. Crowley claimed it was dictated to him by a discarnate entity named Aiwass. However, the three chapters are largely written in the first person by the Thelemic deities Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit.
The book contains three chapters, each of which was alleged to be written down in one hour in 1904, Cairo, Egypt.

    Amazing book, very deep and tricky, read between lines, that who has eyes will see, and that who has ears will hear. Beware of who you might awake into you or besides you

    Love is the law, love under will.
  • Fernando Espinosa Leijahas quoted4 years ago
    I am the Snake that giveth Knowledge & Delight and bright glory, and stir the hearts of men with drunkenness. To worship me take wine and strange drugs whereof I will tell my prophet, & be drunk thereof! They shall not harm ye at all. It is a lie, this folly against self. The exposure of innocence is a lie. Be strong, o man! lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture: fear not that any God shall deny thee for this
