Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Magick may be described as a system of communication, a language
used exclusively between the conscious (the logical mind), and
the subconscious (the thinking mind). During dialogue, the
Magician's objective is to use his or her logical mind and
convince the thinking mind into revealing a method by which to
directly access the Super Conscious, the Higher mind...often
called; God, Christ Consciousness, Godhead, The Higher Self, etc.
We will refer to it as THE HOLY GUARDIAN ANGEL.
Every 2,000 years or so we enter into a New Age. At this time,
the subconscious changes, and so does the language to which it
responds. Once this shift has occurred, the Magician must make
the necessary adjustments if he wants to keep the dialogue open.
Should you fall into the rut called "Tradition" (as many
Magicians do) you will no longer be able to effect those subtle
forces which you are trying to stimulate because you will not
In 1904 we entered such an Age. The Angel Aiwas announced that
Horus, the hawk-headed god, had taken his seat at the throne of
the Gods. The Aeon of The Child was upon us. As with most
children, it is natural for the rebellious attitude towards the
old ways, and the insistence on creating new ways of doing
things. The New Aeon brought with it a new Law; "Do what thou
wilt shall be the whole of the Law" and "Love is the law, love
under will". This unprecedented Law demands the utmost
discipline. It suggests that we all have a purpose, a Will; and
that we have a responsibility to follow that Will, live in
harmony with the rest of the Universe, and be who we truly are.
By virtue of this Law, not only are we freed, but it is
emphasized that we protect our originality. The Magical formula
for the New Aeon must be structured in such a way that it can be
distinguished from the old formulae, yet it must be capable of
overwhelming tolerance in order to allow great diversity.
The purpose of this book is to help you to discover the new
language by which to communicate to your Self, it will help you
to further understand the books already on your shelves, and most
importantly; it will give you a foundation on which to create
your own, unique methods. Methods that will work better than
anything learned from any book; because you created them for
yourself. Although one will find ritual and instruction in this
book, it is presented solely for the purpose of presenting the
reader with some effective procedures. It is my hope that you
will familiarize yourself with the mechanics involved in
Ceremonial Magick, thereby becoming fit to design your own
Originally, I wrote this book for my three children, and for that
reason you will find that I have written it in the "second
person"; I hope this informality does not offend anyone. The
purpose of this little work is not to show great literary skill,
but rather to shed light on a difficult subject further made
obscure by authors looking for scholarly recognition. This
limited volume does not contain "all that there is". No one
could boast about having written such a book. You should simply
view this as a primer.
The only thing that I ask from the reader, is that they keep a
diary. This will serve you by creating a "book of spells", a
reference that you can review to charter your progress along the
Path. It will also serve those that come after you by providing
them with insight to an otherwise unknown approach. No matter
how swiftly you have progressed if you have left nothing to the
next generation of Magicians, then your contribution to the
Great Work will have been limited to its evolutionary
The Path is a great road to travel, it has been frequented by
many great names: Aleister Crowley, MacGregor-Mathers, Dion
Fortune, Helena Patrovna Blavatsky, Eliphas Levy, to name but a
few. You will see their footprints along the way. It is my hope
that this volume will encourage you to find your own bearing, so
that you may open up a road not previously charted.
Love is the law, love under will.
