The Confessions Of Aleister Crowley Cover

Book: The Confessions Of Aleister Crowley by Aleister Crowley

The notorious Aleister Crowley: The Beast 666. Magician, Mountaineer, Poet, Author, Gentleman, Entrepreneur, etc. etc. This book, written by the Beast himself, will unmask this Sphinx of a man. He will take you along on the ride of his life, from the boy growing up under religious lunacy to the man proclaiming the Word of his Aeon. I shall let Crowley himself be the guide to his story, urging you thereby to buy this book. Everybody should read this book, whether aspiring to the man or not. Between the lines of his life-story he covers his view on just about every subject, giving his candid, arrogant, yet astutely accurate foliage of human behavior. Only one person that I know of has ever dared to step so completely outside the collective Consciousness (and folly) of the human race and observe it like his own little science-project, and that is the author of this book. And he will share it all with you, while joyfully always being the first to remind you that he is no less of a fool. All throughout, he invites you to relive his adventures of mountaineering, wordly travels, and Magick experimentation using the most exquisite use of language I have ever witnessed. This work is in no way the ramblings of a man hopelessly lost to drugs. If he truly was the Beast 666, then let me bow and give my sympathies unto Him, for the man who wrote this book was as true to himself and others as they come. If being this sincere and unfettered by hypocrisy is diabolic, then I am first in line to join that family! Sure, Crowley had his fix ideas, not all of them uncontroversial, but he always either admitted his prejustice or backed them up with lucid reasoning. Buy this book, read it once -or better, twice- and judge for yourself. For Do what Thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law!

Because his folowers have granted him godlike status while his critics have dismissed him as a crackpot, it's a bit difficult to explain to those who have not heard of A.C. why this book is such a great read. Aleister Crowley(1875-1947) recounts his life and the pride he took in being a genius (he had memorized The Bible before he was seven), a poet, an adventurer, a world renowned mountain climber, a blindfold chess master, a lover, a sorcerer, and The Chosen Prophet of the Ancient Gods of Egypt!

But, above all: an English Gentleman.

Unfortunately his compatriots, like queen Victoria on a celebrated occasion, were not amused. The newspapers depicted him as a satanic, devil worshipping maniac. A charge which was somewhat unfounded and rather ironic since this was the man that satanic devil worshipping maniacs were too scared to mess with. He was a passionate artist with a flair for danger, an extreme of the spiritual and the sensual, a cross between between St. John of the Cross and the Marquis de Sade. Only Rasputin could match him as a true historical figure that seems too improbable to have existed. Neither man would be 'believable', even in lurid work of fictional melodrama. Yet they lived. And A.C. topped Rasputin in possesing (or being possed by) a savagely sarcastic sense of humor which took no prisoners. Say what you will of him but one must grant him a remarkable talent for making enemies everywhere.

W.B. Yeats wanted him expelled from The Golden Dawn (The most influential Rosicrucian/Freemasonic lodge of the 19th century) on the grounds that 'a mystical society should not have to serve as a reform school for juvenile delinquents.' For his part, The Magus informs us that Yeats was full of black, bilious rage, because he, Crowley was by far the greater poet. He once remarked that it was interesting that such a small county as Stratford had given England her two greatest poets, for one must not forget Shakespeare . . .

A.C. founded his own temple of 'life, love, and liberty' after his wife had a vision while visiting a museum in Cairo. The year was 1904 and the gods were ready to annoint an English Gentleman to bear forth their message to humanity and usher in a new era which would replace Christianity, as Christianity had replaced the crumbling faiths of the Roman Empire. Thus 'The Book of the Law' came to be written (or dictated?) Its main tenet was "Do What Thou Wilt.'

Apparently Isis or Horus were fans of the novels of Rabelais, since that was the motto inscribed in his fictional abbey. And, in all likelihood Rabelais probably got it from St. Augustine's maxim: "Love, and do what you will". And if you can name which Greek philosopher thought it up first, treat yourself a trip to Cairo and listen closely to your inner voice. . . It would hardly be surprising to be told that AC was reared in an ultrafundamentalist Christian sect and thus, he rebelled with vengeance.

What is surprising is that the quest for 'The Holy Grail' never left him, even as he climbed the Himalayas, seduced countesses, hobnobbed with Rodin, and made life quite interesting for anyone around him.

A fascinating look at a strange man and his times recounted with humor, sorrow and faith.

Is Crowley Wrong

Is Crowley Wrong Cover Is it possible that he can have made a mistake when writing this passage? Was he always completely sharp of mind with all his faculties in perfect order? Of course not. The man could have made a mistake. He has been known to contradict himself before - why then all the fuss about this passage? Because: Duty is his most open attempt at giving guidelines to all Thelemites, on how they should conduct their lives. Not only is it an attempt at that – it is also being most successfully received as that by the Thelemic community of today. Duty is a very central document in the thelemic literature. Anyone that is attracted by the Thelemic philosophy is likely to get aquainted with it at an early point in his/her search, and, since it is a profound document, serving the reader gems of wisdom by the spoonful, it is more than likely that the passage here called “Duty:C&P”, will be swallowed without second thoughts – especially given the fact that it does not appear until quite late in the read - in part C: Your Duty to Mankind. Crowley lived in the years of 1875e.v – 1947e.v. He was born “old-aeon”, which he often pointed out himself. He was influenced by his times, like everyone else. It is possible to imagine, that Crowley when touching upon topics like juridical thought, crime & punishment, and the founding of the State, was more conditioned by the mentality of British Society, than when he was writing about more direct, personal or spiritual matters elsewhere in the same document. If nobody was there to point out apparent contradictions, it is quite possible that he overlooked them too. One can also speculate (boldly) about the jargon in "Duty:C&P", as somewhat echoing the jargon of British high society, a world in which Crowley wanted to leave a respectable imprint.
