idual disasters, has been a desirable thing and has prepared the way for the establishing of right and better relations, based upon the premises which i have laid down. it is of course impossible for me to do more than indicate here the basis of the new education which will prepare the youth of the world for the responsibilities and duties of parenthood. the entire problem is tied up with that of sex, and also with the problem of the state and its control, far more than is generally conceded. those are two problems which are only emerging today into their full significance, and with them i cannot here deal. parenthood is the result, and the ordained result, of the relation of two animal bodies, and i would have you ponder even if ineffectually upon the wider group implications of this stat

appearance is solely the result of accidental and uncontrolled sexual relations, and in no way indicates the planned intention of parents planned because intended to offer experience to incarnating souls, with the conscious intent of offering the opportunity to hasten the "birth into the light" of those particular souls, thus rendering service to the divine plan. 3. the science of eugenics and of sex hygiene and the development of mentally controlled relationships will steadily grow. much that is now taught along these lines is erroneous and wrongly motivated, being based upon fear, expediency and the desire for improved racial attributes and physical perfection. the right form of scientific sex control, leading to those right conditions in which souls may incarnate, cannot be imposed by l

way to be interpreted literally. yet there is a close relation and an analogy between the two which, as time elapses, will become more clear. there can be no new birth, no creation of the "body of light" and no "manifestation of the sons of god" apart from the process of physical incarnation. there can be no fusion of the opposites of soul and personality apart from the physiological processes of sex, and i say this deliberately, for it is in the relation of the sexes that the element of time enters into the experience of the soul, and the understanding of this will come when the doctrine of reincarnation is properly comprehended and taught universally. it is here that sex magic and the inner tantric teachings have gone so woefully astray, and been centralised upon individual development a

govern the relation between the sexes during the coming new age. the first initiation is therefore closely related to this problem. the seventh ray governs the sacral centre and the sublimation of its energy into the throat or into the higher creative centre; this ray is therefore setting in motion a period of tremendous creative activity, both on the material plane through the stimulation of the sex life of all peoples and in the three worlds through the stimulation brought about when soul and form are consciously related. the first major proof that humanity (through the medium of the majority of its advanced people) has undergone the first initiation will be the appearance of a cycle of entirely new creative art. this creative urge will take forms which will express the new incoming ener

hey reigned there was peace on earth, but as soon as the offices of king and priest were divorced and the sexes divided, it is not surprising for the reasons given above that the peaceful reign of melchisedec has been followed by an age of war and strife, such strife as has been experienced during the present dispensation. formerly the unifying factors of a dual office in the ruler and the double sex of his people precluded the clashing of interests which now obtains, and which will continue until another divine ruler shall present himself to embody within in his own person the qualifications of the dual office of king and priest after the order of melchisedec, and until sex generation be abolished. in this connection it is significant that the bible narrative begins in the garden of eden

e mental, moral, and social development of the individual and the nation. by means of data brought forward in these later times relative to the growth of the god-idea, it is observed that an independent chain of evidence has been produced in support of the facts recently set forth bearing upon the development of the two diverging lines of sexual demarcation. in other words, it has been found that sex is the fundamental fact not only in the operations of nature but in the construction of a god. in the evolution of woman it has been shown that the peculiar inheritance of the two sexes, female and male, is the result of the bias given to these separate lines of development during the earliest periods of sex-differentiation; and, as this division of labor was a necessary step in the evolutiona

the earth, at a time when woman's influence was in the ascendancy over that of man, human energy was directed by the altruistic characters which originated in and have been transmitted through the female; but after the decline of woman's power, all human institutions, customs, forms, and habits of thought are seen to reflect the egoistic qualities acquired by the male. nowhere is the influence of sex more plainly manifested than in the formulation of religious conceptions and creeds. with the rise of male power and dominion, and the corresponding repression of the natural female instincts, the principles which originally constituted the god-idea gradually gave place to a deity better suited to the peculiar bias which had been given to the male organism. an anthropomorphic god like that of

olume is not only to furnish a brief outline of religious growth, but to show the effect which each of the two forces, female and male, has had on the development of our present god- idea, which investigation serves to accentuate the conclusions arrived at in the evolution of woman relative to the inheritance of each of the two lines of sexual demarcation. e.b.g. contents- chapter introduction i--sex the foundation of the god-idea ii--tree, plant, and fruit worship iii--sun worship--female and male energies in the sun iv--the dual god of the ancients a trinity also v--separation of the female and make elements in the deity vi--civilization of an ancient race vii--concealment of the early doctrines viii--the original god-idea of the israelites ix--the phoenician and hebrew god set or seth x

living matter, could reproduce its kind and assist in maintaining a continuous line of its own species, proved the continuity of all life, or in other words, demonstrated the principle of immortality, through birth, transition, and rebirth. this led them to the doctrine of reincarnation and the crux ansata became the symbol of that belief in immortality. one will see at once that the relation to sex matters was remote and purely incidental, as must be the study of such physical processes in relation to the whole scheme of the continuity of life. the rosicrucians today use the crux ansata as a symbol of immortality and reincarnation exclusively. to them it has no other meaning. in a study of some of the other crosses we see arbitrary changes and additions so as to form unique symbols, and

ishad these recurrent rebirths are likened to the life of a mortal which oscillates periodically between sleep and waking. q. this, i must say, does not seem very clear, and i will tell you why. for the man who awakes, another day commences, but that man is the same in soul and body as he was the day before; whereas at every incarnation a full change takes place not only of the external envelope, sex, and personality, but even of the mental and psychic capacities. the simile does not seem to me quite correct. the man who arises from sleep remembers quite clearly what he has done yesterday, the day before, and even months and years ago. but none of us has the slightest recollection of a preceding life or of any fact or event concerning it i may forget in the morning what i have dreamt durin

etism and forceful personality that characterized the authentic witch were never seen in an evil light. it was only the poor helpless woman or the politically inept man who were swept up and tortured until they confessed to practising witchcraft. the accused, in turn, would helpfully accuse almost anyone they could think of, thus causing large numbers of innocent people to suffer a painful death. sex was a distinct liability in those days. the servant-girl mistress of a well-placed man could easily find herself hunted down by a "virtuous" mob if she proved troublesome to her benefactor. it didn't do to look too appetizing, either. a sexy-looking girl was thought to have charms (which indeed she did, but these were invariably evil charms, and she could not be allowed to display them. on the

ics, familiars, fortune tellers and the spirit world? most of these questions stem from popular misconceptions of witchcraft. real witchcraft can be as sensible as a blue-chip stock investment, and often a lot less complicated. witches aren't creatures of a dark, shadowy world. a modern witch is more likely to be a swinger in mini or mink. to practise witchcraft, you don't have to join your local sex orgy club. there are witches who argue that total abstinence from, sex is better for casting spells. others who practise witchcraft believe an orgy is necessary. they argue that right before the sex act there is special energy in the atmosphere. that may be true, but how long can you sustain that high state of energy? not long. you can concentrate on witchcraft, or painting, medicine or book-k

of the soul simultaneously upon the recipient, the person perceives the received knowledge to be perfect. usually, we are in total accord with our bodies; the body dictates its desires to us, and repays us for our labors by letting us experience pleasure. pleasure, in itself, is spiritual, but in our world it must be connected to some material carrier inner motion and development- 109 (e.g, food, sex, music) to enable us to experience it. even though within ourselves we feel pure pleasure, we are incapable of detaching it completely from its carrier. different people enjoy different things and different types of pleasure carriers. but pleasure, in itself, is spiritual, even though we experience it in our brains as an effect of electrical impulses. theoretically, it is possible to fully sim

ng with the still, through the vegetative, animate, and up to the physical speaking, the human. the speaking degree continues to evolve through interior degrees of still, vegetative, animate, and (spiritual) speaking. the chain of reshimot determines everything, and besides that nothing exists. the reshimot evoke increasingly stronger desires in us, starting with physical-existential desires (for sex, food, and family, through desires for wealth, honor, domination, and ending in a desire for knowledge. scientists work with the highest desires in the human species desires (reshimot) for knowledge and erudition. once we exhaust all the reshimot in the egoistic desire to receive, we are required to commence our correction in order to progress onward. kabbalah begins where our ability to resea

LAITMAN M THE KABBALAH EXPERIENCE

n. that is why it is said that we must make great efforts in everything we are told to do, such as studying, circulation, teaching others, etc. but we cannot tell in advance which way salvation will come. desires in our world are independent of the intent. our desire for pleasure does not come from the spiritual light, from the creator, but from a minute light, which takes the form of this world: sex, wealth, power and knowledge. the spiritual desire is to delight in the light, in the creator. if that desire is self-oriented in its intent, it is considered impure and is called a shell. if it is a creator-oriented desire, it is considered pure and is called holiness. therefore, in the beginning, through the influence of proper study and labor, a desire to enjoy spirituality for self develop

f develops, and one begins to want the upper world, the creator, instead of this world. when that desire reaches its peak, we receive a screen, and only then does our desire become a part of malchut (of the world of atzilut. even if we are immersed in impure desires, they are still spiritual because we still want to delight in the spiritual pleasure, the creator, and not earthly pleasures such as sex, wealth or power. t h e k a b b a l a h e x p e r i e n c e 26 c o m p l e t e a d h e s i o n w i t h t h e c r e at o r q: when malchut cleaves to the creator in its final state, does that state last until it is completely nullified within the creator, or does creation remain separated nonetheless? a: it is impossible to explain in words the complete adhesion, which is complete in the unity

correct self from the aim for ourselves to the aim for the creator. corrected aims are hidden because no one can see what is corrected in man. these corrections do not bear any external manifestation, but rather change our personal relationship with the creator. hence, the concealment. we perform the acts that concern morality and customs while under the influence of corporeal pleasures, such as sex, money, control, fame, respect, and education, until we develop the aspiration toward the creator. when that yearning first appears, the technical acts that belong to the ritual and moral part become less important, and we establish a personal contact with the creator. that becomes the most important thing in our lives, and we are then changed from an ordinary person into a kabbalist. however

istic. moreover, we have drifted so much farther from spirituality than they did, that if we did come back to it now, we would have to go that much deeper into the system of creation. t h e s t u d y o f k a b b a l a h 87 t h e g oa l q: why do kabbalists such as the holy ari, rav kook and rav ashlag maintain that it is necessary for any person to study the wisdom of kabbalah, regardless of age, sex, or nationality? a: the reason studying kabbalah is important is that there is a great power in the study of kabbalah that can be of benefit to everyone. when we study kabbalah, even if we do not understand anything we study, but seek only to understand, we awaken within us an influence of the upper light. in one of our lives, we must attain the completion of our souls. if we do not achieve th

look at things as opposite sides of the same coin; we cannot have one without the other. then, evil can also be accepted as good, because it is only in our corrupted vessels (emotions) that we feel evil as dark. if our vessels were corrected (in order to bestow) we would perceive both good (light) and bad (dark) as light. as long as our natural attributes (pride, greed, and desires for power and sex) don t disturb us, as long we are not ashamed of them and don t understand that they are, in fact, the barrier between us and spiritual progress, these attributes will not perform the tasks for which they were created. we will have no choice but to be ashamed of what we have inside, and understand that until a force comes from above that enables us to own our desires, we will not be happy. the

hat actually stands behind it. that system is applied because the revelation of the ultimate good is possible only through the discovery of the lowness and harm of evil. q: what are the degrees of one s spiritual development? a: a person s spirituality evolves through the (spiritual) degrees of still, vegetative, animate, and speaking. 1. still: the desire for physical pleasures, such as food and sex. 2. vegetative: the desire for money and wealth. 3. animate: the desire for respect and power. pa r t o n e: t h e b e g i n n i n g 53 4. speaking: the desire for science, self-awareness, and learning about the surrounding world. 5. the spiritual: the degree where the desire for spirituality appears. in fact, this is no longer a degree, but a meta-degree, as the object of desire is outside th

ertain degree. man and woman are a union of zeir anpin and malchut of the world of atzilut. its essence and degree create different names and a higher spiritual degree. the male and female states are set in each of the 125 degrees. if that is the case, then how should men and women behave in this world? each should behave according to the possibilities that he/she has been given within a specific sex. although we are egoistic and seek nothing but personal profit, we must be grateful to the creator for having allowed us to see ourselves as we really are, as unpleasant as it may be. we should try to learn to react to things moderately as we observe ourselves from the side. that is, in fact, our entire work to become owners of our situations and to control our emotions. we may sometimes lose

, until we finally reach the last degree, the attainment of eternity, perfection, and wholeness, the ability to view life and death from a new perspective. pa r t t wo: p h a s e s o f s p i r i t ua l e v o l u t i o n 101 c h a p t e r 2. 8 t h e r i g h t wa y t o a dva n c e the society we live in is flooded with the perpetual pursuit of beastly (corporeal) pleasures such as money, glory, and sex. it is impossible to sin in such a state, and it is just as impossible to keep mitzvot. this is simply not spirituality. however, there is hope in that situation, provided we are willing to restrict the use of these desires, or to better phrase it, direct our desires for spirituality. when that happens, we are admitted into the first degree in the spiritual world, where there is a light many t

s a counter to loki fs accusation concerning his humiliation by giantesses while he was a hostage. beyond that, however, the evidence is perhaps equivocal. the name gnjord h can be derived etymologically from that of nerthus, the goddess described by tacitus from around the end of the first century c.e. the etymological equivalence can suggest either that some time during the first millennium the sex of the deity changed, that the deity was hermaph- 242 norse mythology roditic, or, perhaps most likely, that there was once a male-female pair, like frey and freyja, with identical or nearly identical names. as snorri says, njord joined the asir as a hostage (a man exchanged as a pledge of good faith) at the end of the war between the asir and the vanir. he also, according to lokasenna, stanza

ailures in life become the manure in death. the substratum of human cognition is an unknown inherent syllogism creating our formalisms. the field of sentiment goes beyond, to the ideal ultimate. beyond again is the arbitrary-causal-archetypal, the abstract span of conceivability with conation levelled to our ability. the mind divulges by the power of inexorable affections that become a necessity. sex is the only way of procreation, and our hylotheism changes the matrix of our desire. cthese poor likenesses are of slavering fears and poor beliefs. are they the differentiated correlatives we make of ourselves for the great innovation? no, they must come from the sweat of ecstasy. this is your great moment of reality. the living flesh! these selffrightened saints who bleat "all is illusion. o

LUCIFERIAN SORCERY

lectures were on his luciferian cult of masks and egyptian magick in a time when wicca was being formulated. had mr. pace been able to get his material available more, wicca might not have become as unchallenging as it appears today. based off of two manuscripts, necrominon and the book of tahuti, hamara t produced much material on the luciferian gnosis, dealing with the tarot and high ceremonial sex magick with a ritual called ankh-ka. mr. pace was from the 1960 s a priest of set and anubis, and in such a fitting manner, was a mortuary technician. while the triple hermetic circle used by coven nachttoter/the order of phosphorus differs from the original, the foundation is in itself similar if not the same. the triple hermetic circle is presented here anew, that the student makes use this

e triumphant dna world: the generation of diversity and complexity describing the evolution of life after the appearance of the first eukaryotes would easily fill an entire book, and several fine books on the subject have been published. therefore, we restrict ourselves to a very brief account of what happened between 2 billion years ago and the present and focus particularly on the appearance of sex. it can be said that the invention of sexual reproduction by eukaryotic cells was an extremely important milestone in evolution. one basic question about sex is what does it actually achieve? the answer is simple: when two organisms engage in sexual reproduction, their mixed genomes end up in their progenies. in other words, an organism resulting from sexual reproduction, such as a human being

eproduce sexually while others reproduce asexually, that is, without the intervention of male fleas. researchers have shown that asexual reproduction leads to an accumulation of deleterious mutations, reinforcing the idea that the blending of two different genomes (one from the father and one from the mother) is advantageous from an evolutionary viewpoint. nonetheless, the origin and evolution of sex remain fundamental and difficult problems in biology. it seems that the first multicellular eukaryotic organisms appeared about 650 million years ago, that is, almost 1.4 billion years after the appearance of 160 evolution and religious creation myths the first eukaryotes. these may have been wormlike and jellyfish-like creatures, although their physical shape is debated because these creature

MACNULTY W KIRK KABBALAH AND FREEMASONRY

t was ostensibly bi-gradal until the end of the seventeenth century. two rites were observed but only one actual initiation was recognized. the first rite entailed ritual copulation with a representative of the god. the magister "brought in" female recruits. the lady brought in male recruits. this is the historical basis for the claim that a candidate must be initiated by a person of the opposite sex. the magister passed the "power" to women. the lady passed it to men. this sexual induction at the entrance rite was mandatory."10 it seems to me entirely reasonable to think that masons, seeking to rebut accusations of witchcraft, had excluded women from their proceedings simply to be able to say "look, see! we cannot possibly be involved in that; because we allow no women at our proceedings;

theus. this balance of angel, demon, and man is the perfect way of ensuring free-will, all while keeping man neck-deep in a spiritual game. if a tutelary demon, or guardian demon, were to gain undue control over the wills of the individual, the results would be a decline in moral character, physical, and mental health. this being, which drives us by selfishness, greed, and base ambitions (such as sex and power) is also responsible for many of the acts of our lives we call achievements. pragmatism is the true way of our guardian demons. people who are under strong demonic influence are mean, distant, selfish, and disloyal; they are strangers to charity, because in he back of their mind is always the voice saying what s in it for me. these individuals will also exhibit many self-destructive

expressed the contrary idea. there commenced the fatal knowledge of good and evil. everything double, false, opposed to the single and sole reality, was expressed by the binary number. it expressed also that state of contrariety in which nature exists, where everything is double; night and day, light and darkness, cold and heat, wet and dry, health and sickness, error and truth, one and the other sex, etc. hence the romans dedicated the second month in the year to pluto, the god of hell, and the second day of that month to the _man s_ of the dead. the number _one, with the chinese, signified unity, harmony, order, the good principle, or god _two, disorder, duplicity, falsehood. that people, in the earliest ages, based their whole philosophical system on the two primary figures or lines, on

but distinct sexes were in some sort assigned to them, and characteristics analogous to the mode in which they concur in universal generation. the doctrine of ocellus was the general doctrine everywhere, it naturally occurring to all to make the same distinction. the egyptians did so, in selecting those animals in which they recognized these emblematic qualities, in order to symbolize the double sex of the universe. their god kneph, out of whose mouth issued the orphic egg, whence the author of the clementine recognitions makes a hermaphroditic figure to emerge, uniting in itself the two principles whereof heaven and the earth are forms, and which enter into the organization of all beings which the heavens and the earth engender by their concourse, furnishes another emblem of the double p

ountry the mysterious forms under which the science of nature was veiled, and carried into greece the symbolic egg, with its division into two parts or causes figured by the hermaphroditic being that issued from it, and whereof heaven and earth are composed. the brahmins of india expressed the same cosmogonic idea by a statue, representative of the universe, uniting in itself both sexes. the male sex offered an image of the sun, centre of the active principle, and the female sex that of the moon, at the sphere whereof, proceeding downward, the passive portion of nature begins. the lingam, unto the present day revered in the indian temples, being but the conjunction of the organs of generation of the two sexes, was an emblem of the same. the hindus have ever had the greatest veneration for

told "god created the man; male and female created he _them" and the writer, symbolizing the divine by the human, then tells us that the woman, at first contained in the man, was taken from his side. so minerva, goddess of wisdom, was born, a woman and in armor, of the brain of jove; isis was the sister before she was the wife of osiris, and within brahm, the source of all, the very god, without sex or name, was developed maya, the mother of all that is. the word is the first and only-begotten of the father; and the awe with which the highest mysteries were regarded has imposed silence in respect to the nature of the holy spirit. the word is light, and the life of humanity. it is for the adepts to understand the meaning of the symbols. return now, with us, to the degrees of the blue mason

which surrounds the wicked. when the magnetic atmosphere of two persons is so equilibrated that the attractive faculty of one draws the expansive faculty of the other, a tendency is produced which is termed sympathy; then imagination, calling up to it all the rays or reflections analogous to that which it experiences, makes a poem of the desires which captivate will, and if the persons differ in sex, it occasions in them, or more commonly in the weaker of the two, a complete intoxication of the astral light, which is termed passion par excellence, or love. love is one of the great instruments of magical power, but it is categorically forbidden to the magus, at least as an intoxication or passion. woe to the samson of the kabalah if he permit himself to be put asleep by delilah! the hercul

ty. in order to achieve the above, the demoniac entities try to instill the following delusions in the human mind: sexual fidelity for life is the ideal union between a man and a woman. in order to enhance this lie, the demons try to uphold social attitudes that restrict sexual activity in any human couple. according to them, not only "infidelity" is a sin, but also the only lawful purpose of the sex act is procreation. this, of course, is the equivalent of maintaining that love can only exist on the physical plane, and that human beings are incapable of relating to each other on other planes of existence. but in reality, it is not normal (in the statistic sense) for men and women to keep up monogamous sexual activity during years and years. studies on this subject show that, between partn

ul or unconscious of a man has a feminine bias which we refer to the anima, while that of a woman has a masculine bias, the animus. this latter is defined as a constantly changing figure, its energies in a state of continuous fluctuation. the animus is not a persistent unvarying figure as is the anima. the typical woman finds her conscious feeling expression centered in one person of the opposite sex; she is monogamous externally. but, internally her unconscious is apparently polygamous "for the name of her animus might be 'legion' he represents the logos principle,lz the masculine reason of her unconscious nature" on the tree of life, this animus principle is equivalent to chiah, the will; this word also means life, animal life. this principle is the first creative vehicle of the es, as i

of the heart, our digestion and respiration. all the promptings of desire and the urges of passion that spring unbidden within us, have their seat in nephesh. this is the underworld of the psyche through which we get comparatively close to nature, to the elemental side of life. it is the undermind in which function the primary instincts of selfpreservation and reproduction. it is the seat of the sex instinct itself. the jungian concept of the unconscious might be the appropriate term for this side of life, as is held by the freudian school, whereas the much abused word superconscious would be distinctly descriptive of the supernal sephiroth of the yechidah, chiah, and neshamahl6 corresponding to the jungian unconscious. the tenth sephirah is that of the physical brain and the active physi

f a woman's subconscious. both are "soul images" whch usually manifest themselves in anthropomorphic form as "fantasy lovers" in dream and imagination. animus and anima have a direct relationshp with the persona or mask-if the persona is emotional, the soul image is rational, and vice versa. they are two of the most important archetypes, often influencing how we respond to members of the opposite sex. people often search out, and are attracted to, someone who symbolizes the attributes of their own psyche. every man carries within him the eternal image of woman, not the image of this or that particular woman, but a definitive feminine image. this image is findamentally unconscious, an hereditary factor of primordial origin engraved in the living organic system of the man, an imprint or "arc

s of the same coin, one cannot be without the other. we must take reality for what it is. then the evil can also be accepted as good, because it is only in our corrupted vessels (emotions) that we feel it as dark. if our vessels were corrected (in order to bestow) we would perceive both good (light) and bad (dark) as light. as long as our natural attributes (pride, greed and desires for power and sex) don t disturb us, as long we are not ashamed of them and don t understand that they are in fact the barrier between us and the spiritual progress, these attributes will not perform the task for which they were created. there is no choice but to be ashamed of what we have inside and understand that until a force comes from above that enables us to be owners of our own desires we will not be ha

ood that actually stands behind it. that system is applied because the revelation of the ultimate good is possible only through the discovery of the lowness and harm of the evil. q: what are the degrees of one s spiritual development? a: a person s spirituality evolves the (spiritual) degrees of still, vegetative, animate and speaking. 1. still: the desire for physical pleasures, such as food and sex. 2. vegetative: the desire for money and wealth. 3. animate: the desire for respect and power. 4. speaking: the desire for science, self-awareness and to learn about the surrounding world. 37 of 273 5. the spiritual: that is the degree where the desire for spirituality appears. in fact, this is no longer a degree, but a super degree, because the object of the desire is outside this world. q: h

TRUE HISTORY OF WITCHCRAFT

against cheeks. both men were believers in fleshly fulfillment, not only as an end in itself but, as in the tantric yoga of the east, as a means of spiritual attainment. a certain prudishness has crept into the practices of postgardnarian wiccans, especially in america since the 1960s, along with a certain feminist revisionism. this has succeeded to a considerable extent in converting a libertine sex cult into a rather staid neopuritanism. the original gardnarian current is still well enough known and widely enough in vogue (in britain and ireland especially) that one can venture to assert that what gardnerian wicca is all about is the same thing crowley was attempting with a more narrow, more intellectual constituency in the magickal orders under his direct influence. these orders had flo

d, something far less real than either gardner or crowley could have wanted or foreseen. wherever they came from, the rites and practices which came from or through gerald gardner were strong, and tapped into that archetypal reality, that level of consciousness beneath the mask of polite society and conventional wisdom which is the function of true magick. at a popular level, this was the tantric sex magick of the west. whether this primordial access has been lost to us will depend on the awareness, the awakening or lack thereof among practitioners of the near to middle-near future. carried to its end gardnerian practices, like crowley's magick, are not merely exotic; they are, in the truest sense, subversive. practices that work are of value, whether they are two years old or two thousand

ditions of tantra- a highly esoteric body of teachings and that center, in part, around the use of sexual energy as a source of spiritual power- which had long been criticized by european orientalist scholars and christian missionaries as the very worst and most perverse confusion of sexuality and religion.v in fact, for most american readers today, tantra is typically associated with crowley-ian sex magick. one need now only browse the shelves of any barnes and noble bookstore or surf the endlessly proliferating web-sites on the internet to discover the secrets of tantra, sex magick and tarot, practice tantra without tears or even engage in wicca for lovers. as his early biographer, john symonds, remarks "his greatest merit was to make the bridge between tantrism and the western esoteric

century through the work of crowley and his later disciples. crowley, i will argue, is not only a fascinating figure worthy of attention by scholars of religion, but he is also of profound importance for the understanding of modern western spirituality and culture as a whole. this importance is at least threefold. first, with his radical rejection of victorian morality and his central emphasis on sex as the supreme magical power, crowley is a remarkable reflection of his era and of the sexual attitudes of late and post-victorian england.viii second, with his study of hinduism and buddhism, he was also a key figure in the transmission of indian religious traditions to the west, including the controversial traditions of indian tantra. but as i hope to show, although crowley did know a fair a
