Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. ~ In this podcast, we focus on the topics of Thelema, Aleister Crowley, and Ordo Templi Orientis while also touching upon the subjects of magick, yoga, and initiation. The podcast includes lectures, music, interviews, discussions, and readings of the Holy Books of Thelema and other important texts written by Aleister Crowley. Our mission is to spread awareness of the Law of Thelema, the writings of Aleister Crowley, and Ordo Templi Orientis. Speech in the Silence is also a creative outlet for Thelemites, and we encourage listener feedback and participation. ~ The Law of Thelema is revealed in Liber AL vel Legis, also known as The Book of the Law. This Law can be summarized in three verses from the Book: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." ~ "Love is the law, love under will." ~ "There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt." ~ Practitioners of Thelema are called Thelemites. Thelemites work towards the discovery and accomplishment of their True Will, the innermost nature of the individual. ~ The Law of Thelema grants us ultimate personal freedom, but also demands that we each use that freedom to do our True Will and nothing else. As it is written in The Book of the Law: "... thou hast no right but to do thy will. Do that, and no other shall say nay." ~ Respecting the divine and solar nature of every human being means that Thelemites mind their own business and do not interfere in the wills of others -- except in cases of tyranny and oppression. As the Book of the Law says "Every man and every woman is a star." ~ Aleister Crowley expands on this idea in his Extenuation: "Every Star has its own Nature, which is 'Right' for it. We are not to be missionaries, with ideal standards of dress and morals, and such hard ideas. We are to do what we Will, and leave others to do what they Will. We are infinitely tolerant, save of intolerance." ~ Aleister Crowley, also called The Master Therion and The Great Beast 666, is the Prophet of the Law of Thelema. In 1904 e.v., Crowley received the Book of the Law in a revelation while on honeymoon with his wife, Rose, in Cairo, Egypt. The reception of this Book trumpeted the beginning of the New Aeon of the Crowned and Conquering Child, where we can observe the decay of the idea of sin; the growth of innocence, self-confidence, and amorality; the increasing prevalence of bisexuality and androgyny; the childlike confidence in technological and cultural progress; and the acceptance of the individual as the fundamental unit of society. ~ Love is the law, love under will.
