The Place Of Thelema

The Place Of Thelema Image
Thelema is an esoteric religion having its basis in the Western Mysteries. The whole religion makes use of that which has gone before, including Hermeticism, Qabalah, Rosicrucianism and, of course, magick.4 It means that the symbols, as given to the mind of the magician, uses the subconscious images as they’ve been trained. Hence it is that so much of the book is couched in Gematria, Qabalah, Tarot and Egyptian symbolism. Without these tools the Book and the religion as a whole make little sense. Like looking at Quantum Math without ever having studied Physics.

It may seem strange that a religion be based on occult concepts but this was also true of the modern manifestations of neo-paganism and Wicca. Crowley thought of Wicca as “Thelema for the masses” and aided Gerald Gardner in his creation of the modern Wicca tradition through his book Witchcraft Today. Both religions are based on the occult principles of the Western Mysteries and it is from them that they gain their symbols, traditions and rituals.
