Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Imagine a world where all are taught full responsibility for

themselves. No opportunities are witheld; perfect freedom of

personal expression is given. All moral and ethical codes of

conduct are up to the individual. The only role of society is to

enable this freedom of the self through teaching self-respect and

recognizing the worth and value of every individual by not

adopting moral values or religious ethics which infringe on the

right of every individual to express themselves according to

their own unique natures. The sole responsibility for every

individual is to be themselves and enjoy a life in a land of

individual freedom and responsibility.

Let us further consider this land of freedom, where the

government exists solely to serve the people, to assist them to

participate in their society because they are taught that they

make a difference, that the greatest contribution that every man

and every woman has to make is their own individual and unique

expression. The people are ruled only by a Law of Liberty, a

perfect Law which upholds the rights of every individual,

inflicting judgement on no one except those who obstruct others

from expressing their own right of self-expression.

In this land of liberty all men and women are released from the

iron grips of religious dogma, from the crutches and clutches of

man-made morals and laws, and all are allowed to create or adopt

their own morals and laws according to their own unique natures.

Allowed to shine, as individual stars, every man and every woman

is set into motion by their own unique and individual Wills; they

are allowed, in the spirit of freedom, to find and pursue their

own orbits or paths in life, and like heavenly bodies maintain

harmony and balance with all other individuals rotating around

the Great Central Sun.

What person is better to decide what is right or wrong for you

than yourself? Who knows what your motivations, your needs and

desires are, better than yourself? Thus the True Law for every

man and every woman should consist of a perfect code of freedom,

of allowing them to find their own paths and pursue them. The

aim of any society should be to instruct individuals of their own

worth and value, and to furnish them with the necessary tools to

use to express their own personal talents so that they may

experience joy, and health, and wealth, and wisdom according to

the unique formulae of their own true natures.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the

law, love under will. What better Law can there be than this for

a free society of men and women? But can this perfect Law work

in our society, a society which is supposedly based on the grand

principle of freedom. If the Law of Thelema was the law of the

land today, I think that the major offenders of society would not

be gangs, drug users, rapists and other recognized criminal

offenders. Instead, it would be the fundamentalists, the Oliver

Norths of our government, those who persist in an abominable

endeavor to rule others with their own limited perceptions of

right and wrong, who judge and punish and even declare war on

those who disagree with their limited notions.

Happy people are individuals with high self-esteem, who know what

they want out of life, who know that they answer to no one but

themselves, free of guilt and shame, and who are devoted to

nothing else but the fulfillment of their Will. Critics of the

Law of Thelema, that is,"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of

the Law," seldom quote the second part of this Law of Liberty,

that is, "Love is the law, love under will." This is most dire,

for Love is the key to finding one's true connection with oneself

and the world. Will based on love does not consist of blind

attachments to selfish gratifications! On the contrary, Will

based on Love is a spiritual principle, a principle of loving

yourself and others in perfect freedom and joy. Do What Thou

Wilt also means not to attempt to tell another what their Will

is, most importantly to respect every individual's right to

decide what is right for them.

The Law of Thelema, that is, Do What Thou Wilt, is the Law of

Liberty. It is a simple code of conduct which allows for every

man and every woman to be the god that they are, to flame forth

as mighty stars on their own unique and essential orbits, without

conflict in any form, for the fulfillment of their own universal

destinies. By the application of the Law of Thelema to our lives

we have the right to live by our own laws and to live in the way

that we will to do. In Thelemic religion, we are no more the

weak slaves of a false sheep god and his false commandments; we

now realize that we are true gods in essence, that we have no god

to answer to but to the god that we are, and that we must be

responsible for ourselves, adopting those laws and morals which

are only necessary and suitable to our own growth and evolution,

based on the sublime knowledge of our own true natures. It is

time to free oursleves from slavery, to know and to accept who we

really are, and to act on that perfect knowledge alone. A land

that is governed by the Law of Thelema is a land of perfect

liberty, a veritable paradise of gods who realize and do their

True Wills, without conflict in any form, being free from the

false notions and laws of the Old Aeon of Osiris. The New Golden

Dawn of Liberty has come! Freedom is now the One Law of Life;

every man and every woman must now be free, in the Spirit of the

Times, to realize themselves and to create or adopt their own

laws, as they see fit for themselves. For as the Book of the Law

says, "Every man and every woman is a star." Let us all

therefore arise in the Light of the New Golden Dawn; and let us

rejoice with infinite delight in the New Law of Liberty which is

Do What Thou Wilt; and finally let us revel in the marvelous

world of stars where all is Light and Life and Love and Liberty!

Love is the law, love under will.
