INTRODUCTION 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 understand them. 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 rituals. 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 representation. 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. Gerald del Campo January 1st, 1992 e.v., Ashland, OR. Sun in Capricorn, Moon in Sagittarius
