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
