The Book Of The Law, or Liber Al vel Legis, an occult/creative text by British author Aleister Crowley, was composed in and has been in. The Book of the Law presents an altogether different conception of the nature of The new conception, indicated by the Book of the Law, is of course in no way. The theogony of our Law is entirely scientific: Nuit is Matter, Hadit is Motion, .. This Book of the Law is the Voice of the God's Mother, His Father, and Himself.

The apartment was on the ground floor, and the "temple" was the drawing room. Crowley described the encounter in detail in The Equinox of the Gods , saying that as he sat at his desk in Cairo, the voice of Aiwass came from over his left shoulder in the furthest corner of the room.

This voice is described as passionate and hurried, and was "of deep timbre, musical and expressive, its tones solemn, voluptuous, tender, fierce or aught else as suited the moods of the message.

Not bass—perhaps a rich tenor or baritone.

Crowley also got a "strong impression" of the speaker's general appearance. Aiwass had a body composed of "fine matter," which had a gauze-like transparency. Further, he "seemed to be a tall, dark man in his thirties, well-knit, active and strong, with the face of a savage king, and eyes veiled lest their gaze should destroy what they saw.

The dress was not Arab; it suggested Assyria or Persia, but very vaguely. The writing also recorded Crowley's own thoughts. Rather he said that the experience was exactly like an actual voice speaking to him.

This resulted in a few transcription errors, about which the scribe had to later inquire. Yet in these Books did Aleister Crowley, the master of English both in prose and in verse, partake insofar as he was That.

Compare those Books with The Book of the Law! The style [of the former] is simple and sublime; the imagery is gorgeous and faultless; the rhythm is subtle and intoxicating; the theme is interpreted in faultless symphony. There are no errors of grammar, no infelicities of phrase. Each Book is perfect in its kind. I, daring to snatch credit for these [ Such a theory would further imply that I am, unknown to myself, possessed of all sorts of praeternatural knowledge and power.

Both Freudian and Jungian theory are on the side of such an assumption The book was written. And he became the mouthpiece for the Zeitgeist, accurately expressing the intrinsic nature of our time as no one else has done to date. For one thing, it knocked my Buddhism completely on the head. I was bitterly opposed to the principles of the Book on almost every point of morality.

The third chapter seemed to me gratuitously atrocious. It would be several years before it was found, and the first official publication occurred in The Book of the Law annoyed me; I was still obsessed by the idea that secrecy was necessary to a magical document, that publication would destroy its importance.

I determined, in a mood which I can only describe as a fit of ill temper, to publish The Book of the Law, and then get rid of it for ever. In several cases, stanzas from the Stele of Revealing were inserted within the text.

Chapter 1[ edit ] For example, chapter 1, page 2, line 9 was written as "V. On page 6 of chapter 1, the following is in the original manuscript: And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the unfragmentary non-atomic fact of my universality. This was later changed to: And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the omnipresence of my body. AL I Chapter 3[ edit ] The last chapter contains a few spelling changes, and includes large chunks inserted from Crowley's paraphrase of The Stele of Revealing.

The phrase "Force of Coph Nia", which is found in chapter 3, on page 64 verse 72 , was filled in by Rose Kelly because that place in the manuscript had been left incomplete as not having been properly heard by Crowley during the supposed dictation.

The first chapter is spoken by Nuit, the Egyptian goddess of the night sky, called the Queen of Space. Crowley calls her the "Lady of the Starry Heaven, who is also Matter in its deepest metaphysical sense, who is the infinite in whom all we live and move and have our being.

The Book Of The Law

As such, he is the infinitely condensed point, the center of her infinite circumference. Crowley says of him, "He is eternal energy, the Infinite Motion of Things, the central core of all being. The manifested Universe comes from the marriage of Nuit and Hadit; without this could no thing be. This eternal, this perpetual marriage-feast is then the nature of things themselves; and therefore, everything that exists is a "crystallisation of divine ecstasy", and "He sees the expansion and the development of the soul through joy.

Crowley sums up the speakers of the three chapters thus, "we have Nuit, Space, Hadit, the point of view; these experience congress, and so produce Heru-Ra-Ha , who combines the ideas of Ra-Hoor-Khuit and Hoor-paar-kraat.

Crowley wrote about Liber AL in great detail throughout the remainder of his life, apparently attempting to decipher its mysteries. The mysterious 'grid' page of Liber AL's manuscript. Then this line drawn is a key: then this circle squared in its failure is a key also. And Abrahadabra. Thelema implies not merely a new religion, but a new cosmology, a new philosophy, a new ethics. It co-ordinates the disconnected discoveries of science, from physics to psychology, into a coherent and consistent system.

Its scope is so vast that it is impossible even to hint at the universality of its application. On 20 March, Crowley invoked Horus, "with great success".

Between 23 March and 8 April, Crowley had the hieroglyphs on the stele translated. Also, Rose revealed that her "informant" was not Horus himself, but his messenger, Aiwass. Finally, on 7 April, Rose gave Crowley his instructions—for three days he was to enter the "temple" and write down what he heard between noon and 1: Crowley said he wrote The Book of the Law on 8, 9 and 10 April , between the hours of noon and 1: The apartment was on the ground floor, and the "temple" was the drawing room.

Crowley described the encounter in detail in The Equinox of the Gods , saying that as he sat at his desk in Cairo, the voice of Aiwass came from over his left shoulder in the furthest corner of the room. This voice is described as passionate and hurried, and was "of deep timbre, musical and expressive, its tones solemn, voluptuous, tender, fierce or aught else as suited the moods of the message.

Not bass—perhaps a rich tenor or baritone. Crowley also got a "strong impression" of the speaker's general appearance. Aiwass had a body composed of "fine matter," which had a gauze-like transparency.

Further, he "seemed to be a tall, dark man in his thirties, well-knit, active and strong, with the face of a savage king, and eyes veiled lest their gaze should destroy what they saw. The dress was not Arab; it suggested Assyria or Persia, but very vaguely. Despite initially writing that it was an "excellent example of automatic writing ," [9] Crowley later insisted that it was not just automatic writing though the writing included aspects of this, since when Crowley tried to stop writing he was compelled to continue.

The writing also recorded Crowley's own thoughts. Rather he said that the experience was exactly like an actual voice speaking to him. This resulted in a few transcription errors, about which the scribe had to later inquire. Yet in these Books did Aleister Crowley, the master of English both in prose and in verse, partake insofar as he was That.

Compare those Books with The Book of the Law! The style [of the former] is simple and sublime; the imagery is gorgeous and faultless; the rhythm is subtle and intoxicating; the theme is interpreted in faultless symphony. There are no errors of grammar, no infelicities of phrase. Each Book is perfect in its kind. I, daring to snatch credit for these [ He also admits to the possibility that Aiwass may be identified with his own subconscious, although he thought this was unlikely:.

Of course I wrote them, ink on paper, in the material sense; but they are not My words, unless Aiwaz be taken to be no more than my subconscious self, or some part of it: Such a theory would further imply that I am, unknown to myself, possessed of all sorts of praeternatural knowledge and power.

Crowley's former secretary Israel Regardie , on the other hand considered this statement by Crowley to be no real objection to Aiwass being a part of Crowley's unconscious mind, claiming that:. It can safely be said that current psychological theory would agree that any one person is possessed of all sorts of knowledge and power of which he is totally unconscious Both Freudian and Jungian theory are on the side of such an assumption It really makes little difference in the long run whether The Book of the Law was dictated to [Crowley] by a preterhuman intelligence named Aiwass or whether it stemmed from the creative deeps of Aleister Crowley.

The book was written. And he became the mouthpiece for the Zeitgeist, accurately expressing the intrinsic nature of our time as no one else has done to date. Crowley himself was initially opposed to the book and its message. The fact of the matter was that I resented The Book of the Law with my whole soul.

For one thing, it knocked my Buddhism completely on the head. I was bitterly opposed to the principles of the Book on almost every point of morality. The third chapter seemed to me gratuitously atrocious. Shortly after making a few copies for evaluation by close friends, the manuscript was misplaced and forgotten about.

It would be several years before it was found, and the first official publication occurred in The Book of the Law annoyed me; I was still obsessed by the idea that secrecy was necessary to a magical document, that publication would destroy its importance. I determined, in a mood which I can only describe as a fit of ill temper, to publish The Book of the Law , and then get rid of it for ever.

The final version of Liber Legis includes text that did not appear in the original writing, including many small changes to spelling. In several cases, stanzas from the Stele of Revealing were inserted within the text.

For example, chapter 1, page 2, line 9 was written as "V. And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the unfragmentary non-atomic fact of my universality. Write this in whiter words But go forth on. And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the omnipresence of my body.

Again in chapter 1, on page 19, Crowley writes, Lost 1 phrase The shape of my star is—. Later, it was Rose who filled in the lost phrase:.

The last chapter contains a few spelling changes, and includes large chunks inserted from Crowley's paraphrase of The Stele of Revealing. The phrase "Force of Coph Nia", which is found in chapter 3, on page 64 verse 72 , was filled in by Rose Kelly because that place in the manuscript had been left incomplete as not having been properly heard by Crowley during the supposed dictation.

Although the "messenger" of Liber AL was Aiwass, each chapter is presented as an expression of one of three god-forms: Nuit , Hadit , and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The first chapter is spoken by Nuit, the Egyptian goddess of the night sky, called the Queen of Space.

Crowley calls her the "Lady of the Starry Heaven, who is also Matter in its deepest metaphysical sense, who is the infinite in whom all we live and move and have our being. The second chapter is spoken by Hadit, who refers to himself as the "complement of Nu," i. As such, he is the infinitely condensed point, the center of her infinite circumference. Crowley says of him, "He is eternal energy, the Infinite Motion of Things, the central core of all being.

The manifested Universe comes from the marriage of Nuit and Hadit; without this could no thing be. This eternal, this perpetual marriage-feast is then the nature of things themselves; and therefore, everything that exists is a "crystallisation of divine ecstasy", and "He sees the expansion and the development of the soul through joy.

Crowley sums up the speakers of the three chapters thus, "we have Nuit, Space, Hadit, the point of view; these experience congress, and so produce Heru-Ra-Ha , who combines the ideas of Ra-Hoor-Khuit and Hoor-paar-kraat. Thanks in large part to The Comment , interpretation of the often cryptic text is generally considered by Thelemites a matter for the individual reader.

Crowley wrote about Liber AL in great detail throughout the remainder of his life, apparently attempting to decipher its mysteries. The emancipation of mankind from all limitations whatsoever is one of the main precepts of the Book.

Aiwass, uttering the word Thelema with all its implications , destroys completely the formula of the Dying God. Thelema implies not merely a new religion, but a new cosmology, a new philosophy, a new ethics.

It co-ordinates the disconnected discoveries of science, from physics to psychology, into a coherent and consistent system. Its scope is so vast that it is impossible even to hint at the universality of its application. The child is not merely a symbol of growth, but of complete moral independence and innocence. We may then expect the New Aeon to release mankind from its pretence of altruism, its obsession of fear and its consciousness of sin.

It will possess no consciousness of the purpose of its own existence. It will not be possible to persuade it that it should submit to incomprehensible standards; it will suffer from spasms of transitory passion; it will be absurdly sensitive to pain and suffer from meaningless terror; it will be utterly conscienceless, cruel, helpless, affectionate and ambitious, without knowing why; it will be incapable of reason, yet at the same time intuitively aware of truth.

I might go on indefinitely to enumerate the stigmata of child psychology, but the reader can do it equally for himself, and every idea that comes to him as characteristic of children will strike him as applicable to the events of history since , from the Great War to Prohibition.

And if he possess any capacity for understanding the language of symbolism, he will be staggered by the adequacy and accuracy of the summary of the spirit of the New Aeon given in The Book of the Law. The general method that Crowley used to interpret the obscurities of Liber AL was the Qabalah , especially its numerological method of gematria.

Burn to me perfumes! Wear to me jewels! Drink to me, for I love you! I am the blue-lidded daughter of Sunset; I am the naked brilliance of the voluptuous night-sky. I, Hadit, am the complement of Nu, my bride. I am not extended, and Khabs is the name of my House. In the sphere I am everywhere the centre, as she, the circumference, is nowhere found. Let the evil ones be cast away; let the good ones be purged by the prophet! Then shall this Knowledge go aright. I am the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star.

I am Life, and the giver of Life, yet therefore is the knowledge of me the knowledge of death. I am the Magician and the Exorcist. I am the axle of the wheel, and the cube in the circle.

Who worshipped Heru-pa-kraath have worshipped me; ill, for I am the worshipper. Now let there be a veiling of this shrine: For I am perfect, being Not; and my number is nine by the fools; but with the just I am eight, and one in eight: Which is vital, for I am none indeed.

The Empress and the King are not of me; for there is a further secret. Hear me, ye people of sighing! These are dead, these fellows; they feel not. We are not for the poor and sad: Is a God to live in a dog? They shall rejoice, our chosen: Beauty and strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor, force and fire, are of us. We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: Think not, o king, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: Now let it be understood: If the body of the King dissolve, he shall remain in pure ecstasy for ever.

They shall not harm ye at all. It is a lie, this folly against self. The exposure of innocence is a lie. Be strong, o man! Now think not to find them in the forest or on the mountain; but in beds of purple, caressed by magnificent beasts of women with large limbs, and fire and light in their eyes, and masses of flaming hair about them; there shall ye find them. Ye shall see them at rule, at victorious armies, at all the joy; and there shall be in them a joy a million times greater than this.

Beware lest any force another, King against King! Love one another with burning hearts; on the low men trample in the fierce lust of your pride, in the day of your wrath. I am the secret Serpent coiled about to spring: If I lift up my head, I and my Nuit are one. If I droop down mine head, and shoot forth venom, then is rapture of the earth, and I and the earth are one. There is great danger in me; for who doth not understand these runes shall make a great miss.

He shall fall down into the pit called Because, and there he shall perish with the dogs of Reason. A feast for fire and a feast for water; a feast for life and a greater feast for death!

There is the dissolution, and eternal ecstasy in the kisses of Nu. Pity not the fallen!

I never knew them. I am not for them. I console not: I am not of the slaves that perish. This is of the 4: Blue am I and gold in the light of my bride: There is a veil: Tear down that lying spectre of the centuries: Fear not, o prophet, when these words are said, thou shalt not be sorry.

Thou art emphatically my chosen; and blessed are the eyes that thou shalt look upon with gladness. But I will hide thee in a mask of sorrow: Nor shall they who cry aloud their folly that thou meanest nought avail; thou shall reveal it: They are not of me.

The stops as thou wilt; the letters? He that is righteous shall be righteous still; he that is filthy shall be filthy still.

Therefore the kings of the earth shall be Kings for ever: There is none that shall be cast down or lifted up: Yet there are masked ones my servants: A King may choose his garment as he will: Beware therefore!

Love all, lest perchance is a King concealed! Say you so? If he be a King, thou canst not hurt him. There is a light before thine eyes, o prophet, a light undesired, most desirable. I am uplifted in thine heart; and the kisses of the stars rain hard upon thy body. Now rejoice! Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our agelong love. We are one; we are none. Bear up in thy rapture; fall not in swoon of the excellent kisses!

Wisdom says: Then canst thou bear more joy. Be not animal; refine thy rapture! If thou drink, drink by the eight and ninety rules of art: Strive ever to more! Death is forbidden, o man, unto thee. The length of thy longing shall be the strength of its glory. What meaneth this, o prophet?

Thou knowest not; nor shalt thou know ever. There cometh one to follow thee: But remember, o chosen one, to be me; to follow the love of Nu in the star-lit heaven; to look forth upon men, to tell them this glad word. Lift up thyself! Lift up thyself, o my prophet, thy stature shall surpass the stars. They shall worship thy name, foursquare, mystic, wonderful, the number of the man; and the name of thy house There is division hither homeward; there is a word not known.

Spelling is defunct; all is not aught. Raise the spell of Ra-Hoor-Khuit! Now let it be first understood that I am a god of War and of Vengeance. I shall deal hardly with them. Upon them! It shall not fade, but miraculous colour shall come back to it day after day. Close it in locked glass for a proof to the world. This shall be your only proof. I forbid argument. That is enough. I will make easy to you the abstruction from the ill-ordered house in the Victorious City.

Thou shalt thyself convey it with worship, o prophet, though thou likest it not. Ra-Hoor-Khu is with thee.

Let the woman be girt with a sword before me: Trample down the Heathen; be upon them, o warrior, I will give you of their flesh to eat! Deem not too eagerly to catch the promises; fear not to undergo the curses. Ye, even ye, know not this meaning all. Fear not at all; fear neither men nor Fates, nor gods, nor anything. Money fear not, nor laughter of the folk folly, nor any other power in heaven or upon the earth or under the earth.

Nu is your refuge as Hadit your light; and I am the strength, force, vigour, of your arms.My ecstasy is in yours.
