True Will and the Inertia of the Universe to Assist

Greetings All,

 

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law

 

   Over the past 10 years I have been attempting to discover more of my True Will, that essential Purpose and Direction in my Life, through Self-Discovery and Self-Knowledge, as well as through the Expression In Liberty of the True Will, or That, that I understand to be my True Will.

 

   Back around 2000 I started feeling a Drawing, an Attraction to the Ordo Templi Orientis, O.T.O. or the Order of Oriental Templars.  I began researching every source I could find, from the U.S. O.T.O. Grand Lodge, to the Writings of Aleister Crowley and others.  I also started corresponding with Official Members of the O.T.O. and that gave more impetus to the drive I had to become Associated with the Body of Initiates known as the O.T.O.

 

   I wrote to many Camps, Oasis' and Lodges trying to determine if I could be Initiated in a Physical Initiation, yet the distance to be traveled to a place for such a Rite was insurmountable to me for many years, since I did not drive because I had no Drivers License, for reason's other than DWI.

 

   I tried for almost 10 years to become an Initiate in the O.T.O. and I almost came to the idea that it would not occur, yet I placed it on the back burner of my beings mind, and after Working Ceremonial Magickal Rituals to bring it about I let it rest.  If it was something that Occured through my Magickal Will, and Intent, it came down to it that since it was beyond my means then, it would have to be the Universal Forces that brought it about.

 

   In June of 2010, I had an online friend contact me about a Local Thelemic Community thaqt had started up in an City not far from me.  I started attending meetings, and the Leader, or Camp Master of that Group, then a Camp In Formation would pick me up at home take me to the meetings, and bring me back to my home.

 

   I respect his dedication.  Then on July 17th the Astrum Inculta Camp was Officially Chartered by the O.T.O., and it appeared that perhaps my Magickal Rituals, and the Work of Many Others in the Area, had brought a change about in the Universe to Have an Official O.T.O. Camp Astrum Inculta not far from where I live.

 

   In November I received my Minerval Initiation into the O.T.O. and it was a fulfilling of the Theorem of Aleister Crowleys written long ago for the occasion that he felt to write it.  That "If a Man Follw His True Will, He Has the Inertia of the Universe To Assist Him".  Sometimes it may be a Journey before the New Experience ever takes place, whatever the Experience is, Whether Magickal or Practical.  Sometimes Years may go by, and we might all but forget the Drive, the Impetus, the Purpose we had placed ourselves on in follwoing our True Wills.  Yet I believe that often if we have Patience, and work every possible ability within ourselves, both Mundane and Magickal, We can cause change to occur in conformity with our Wills.

 

I have placed a photo of me in the Photo Section on my Page, it is of me dressed in Black with a Long Black Dress Coat on.  This is a Time of Beginning.

 

Love is the Law, Love under Will

Greetings WarMouse my Friend,

 

   Thank you for the compliment about the post I had made.  The quote I used from the book "Magick In Theory And Practice," by Aleister Crowley is on page XV and is one of the Theorems he describes about the True Will and Magick.  The complete statment is Theorem (9).  "A man who is doing his True Will has the inertia of the Universe to assist him."

 

   This is a motivating acceptance I have, yet it still takes the Apllication of Following Our True, or Higher Will that is an aspect of our Higher Self.  The various Theorems are quite interesting, and detailed, in the Magickal Apllications, Acts, and the True Will which gives the Impetous and Motion to each.

 

Thanks My Friend for the Enouragment.  May you have a very Happy, and Safe New Year.

 

Respectfully,

Helel (Joseph)

Beautiful post, Helel! I've never read that quote before "If a Man Follw His True Will, He Has the Inertia of the Universe To Assist Him" but I 100% agree. Congratulations :)

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
