Liber Porta Lucis sub figurâ X

  1. I behold a small dark orb, wheeling in an abyss of infinite space. It is minute among a myriad vast ones, dark amid a myriad bright ones.
  2. I who comprehend in myself all the vast and the minute, all the bright and the dark, have mitigated the brilliance of mine unutterable splendour, sending forth V.V.V.V.V. as a ray of my light, as a messenger unto that small dark orb.
  3. Then V.V.V.V.V. taketh up the word, and sayeth:
  4. Men and women of the Earth, to you am I come from the Ages beyond the Ages, from the Space beyond your vision; and I bring to you these words.
  5. But they heard him not, for they were not ready to receive them.
  6. But certain men heard and understood, and through them shall this Knowledge be made known.
  7. The least therefore of them, the servant of them all, writeth this book.
  8. He writeth for them that are ready. Thus is it known if one be ready, if he be endowed with certain gifts, if he be fitted by birth, or by wealth, or by intelligence, or by some other manifest sign. And the servants of the master by his insight shall judge of these.
  9. This Knowledge is not for all men; few indeed are called, but of these few many are chosen.
  10. This is the nature of the Work.
  11. First, there are many and diverse conditions of life upon this earth. In all of these is some seed of sorrow. Who can escape from sickness and from old age and from death?
  12. We are come to save our fellows from these things. For there is a life intense with knowledge and extreme bliss which is untouched by any of them.
  13. To this life we attain even here and now. The adepts, the servants of V.V.V.V.V., have attained thereunto.
  14. It is impossible to tell you of the splendours of that to which they have attained.
    Little by little, as your eyes grow stronger, will we unveil to you the ineffable glory of the Path of the Adepts, and its nameless goal.
  15. Even as a man ascending a steep mountain is lost to sight of his friends in the valley, so must the adept seem. They shall say: He is lost in the clouds. But he shall rejoice in the sunlight above them, and come to the eternal snows.
  16. Or as a scholar may learn some secret language of the ancients, his friends shall say: «Look! he pretends to read this book. But it is unintelligible—it is nonsense.» Yet he delights in the Odyssey, while they read vain and vulgar things.
  17. We shall bring you to Absolute Truth, Absolute Light, Absolute Bliss.
  18. Many adepts throughout the ages have sought to do this; but their words have been perverted by their successors, and again and again the Veil has fallen upon the Holy of Holies.
  19. To you who yet wander in the Court of the Profane we cannot yet reveal all; but you will easily understand that the religions of the world are but symbols and veils of the Absolute Truth. So also are the philosophies. To the adept, seeing all these things from above, there seems nothing to choose between Buddha and Mohammed, between Atheism and Theism.
  20. The many change and pass; the one remains. Even as wood and coal and iron burn up together in one great flame, if only that furnace be of transcendent heat; so in the alembic of this spiritual alchemy, if only the zelator blow sufficiently upon his furnace all the systems of earth are consumed in the One Knowledge.
  21. Nevertheless, as a fire cannot be started with iron alone, in the beginning one system may be suited for one seeker, another for another.
  22. We therefore who are without the chains of ignorance, look closely into the heart of the seeker and lead him by the path which is best suited to his nature unto the ultimate end of all things, the supreme realization, the Life which abideth in Light, yea, the Life which abideth in Light.

There are some points to consider for those who are not an aspirant for long. What makes it hard for aspirants to persist on this path? One of the major reasons is that we only provide a blueprint with Oaths and tasks surrounded with books related to several practices.

The aspirant should find out for her/ himself how to put all this in their daily work. They also should work out ‘how’ they will operate. We don’t have ‘lessons’ so to speak. The lessons will open up while one is on the path and ding their work. And those lessons are different for each individual. We don’t have the industrial way that all people should do the same ‘lessons’ in order to progress like in old Aeonic schools like the old GD system. No, we should cut our own way through the jungle. Hope to find the easer eggs hidden in our system. If you look for a structure of ‘lessons’ and if you aren not able to think for yourself this path isn’t something for you. Hence see all those books ‘how to’ in Thelema as well! That will not very helpful to think for yourself isn’t it? Beside this, we all know that when people have a certain authority and write about it many tend to follow. Still the written word has lots of power especially when its backed with authority.

As Dion Fortune once said. ‘in occultism is no room for authority’. Take heed of all this carefully. Especially these days with social media etc. Many expose their opinions. And those who shout the hardest and sell the most books seem to have the most authority. But isn’t attainment revealed by what one is? How one does things? How much ego is involved or not? What did the one with authority accomplish? What kind of person is he/she? Actions is what makes us what we are. Words are easy, but words followed by actions claimed says something about the authenticity of the person. Are the words and actions in sync? Or is there a lot of discrepancy?

Thelema is for very many people too ‘hard’ becasue thinking for themselves is hard. And very few people are able to think for themselves. This is also not what we learn at school and in society. What we should do is rigorously get rid of aspects that hold us back from progress and uncover our ‘true nature’ also called “True Will’.

Same is true concerting our Holy Books. You should find out yourself what they mean to you, what they do to you. No one can tell and while you are doing the work, learning your chapter in due time the inner meaning will be revealed to you since something inside you ‘knows’ the meaning. The language is in such a way that it take attention to our subconsciousness and not to our ‘rational’ mind. Like symbols. The Holy Books are written in words and are as symbols. And they can mean very different from others. Thus understanding is for every individual ‘very’ different. As an unique ‘star’ we also will have unique insights that help us along the way. The insights and glimpse will pop up when you do certain work.

The ‘work’ itself will uncover for you wat will work for you. No one else can tell. I know for many that is very hard but magick cannot be taught in ‘lessons’. it’s an organic evolvement of the aspirant in his/her unique way.

Love is the law, love under will.
