Ordo Templi Orientis, The Book of the Law, Crowley, Pike & The Bloody Sacrifice (WWI - III)

The Book of the Law, also known as Liber AL vel Legis, is the text central to philosophical / religious practice called Thelema founded by Aleister Crowley.

Aleister Crowley
Crowley penned the book in three sessions between 12 noon and 1 pm on April 8, 9 and 10, 1904 in Cairo, resulting in three distinct chapters. He reports writing the book by dictation from a voice that seemed to come from over his shoulder and called itself Aiwass (or Aiwaz). He also reports having the impression or picture of a speaker in the corner behind him, looking "transparent as a veil of gauze," but otherwise like a tall, dark man with his eyes veiled (so as not to destroy what he looked upon). At the time, he says, he considered the figure "an 'angel' such as he had often seen in visions, a being purely astral. He was later to change this view substantially.

Crowley also makes it very clear that it was not “automatic writing,” but that the experience was exactly like an actual voice speaking to him. This is evidenced by several errors that the scribe actually had to enquire about. He does admit to the possibility that Aiwass was a manifestation of his own subconscious. But even were this so, he claimed that the message imparted by Aiwass was so beyond human experience or knowledge that it necessitated a praeternatural intelligence that only a higher order of being could possess.

Ordo Templi Orientis
Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) (Order of the Temple of the East, or the Order of Oriental Templars) is an international fraternal and religious organization. For its teachings and principles of organization, it has accepted the Law of Thelema, which is expressed as “Do what thou wilt.” Thelemites believe that this Law was established with the writing of the Book of the Law by Aleister Crowley

O.T.O. a Brief Historical Review (From The Hermetic Library)

Theodor Reuss
Ordo Templi Orientis was founded before 1902 e.v. by Karl Kellner and Theodore Reuss (also known as Merlin) in Germany, with a principal mailing address in Lugano, Switzerland by 1917 e.v. The immediate precursor organization was the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light, a mystical society founded in the mid 19th century, with branches in Europe and North America. Prior to the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light, O.T.O. "traditional" history includes the Weishaupt Illuminati of the late 18th century and the Crusading Order of Knights Templar of the 11th century as precursors. It must be pointed out that many other organizations also claim derivation from the Illuminati and 11th century Templars, without actual evidence. "Traditional" history is a euphemism for "mythology" in Masonic and mystical organizations; and, as such, "traditional" history expresses precursor relationships which are incapable of documentation and may be inaccurate. It is documented that O.T.O. sprang from the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light as the creation of Karl Kellner, a member of that fraternity. The Hermetic Brotherhood of Light continued independently of O.T.O., in its own right, and was still in existence in Oakland, California as late as 1970 e.v.

Carl Kellner
In the first two decades of operation, Ordo Templi Orientis absorbed elements of other fraternal and occult societies into its teachings and structure. Some of these absorbed societies actually granted limited or full authority of operation to O.T.O., while others were either represented by an overlapping membership with O.T.O. or a "right to study" the educational secrets of the absorbed societies. In 1912, a list of such absorbed societies or bodies was published, including: The Gnostic Catholic Church, The Order of the Knights of the Holy Ghost, The Order of the Illuminati, The Order of the Temple, The Order of the Knights of St. John, The Order of the Knights of Malta, The Order of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre, The Hidden Church of the Holy Grail, The Hermetic Brotherhood of Light, The Holy Order of Rose Croix of Heredom, The Order of the Holy Royal Arch of Enoch, The Antient and Primitive Rite of Masonry, The Rite of Memphis, The Rite of Mizraim, The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Maso nry, The Swedenborgian Rite of Masonry, The Order of Martinists and the Order of the Sat Bhai. This list was not considered complete, but included most of those Masonic and knightly organizations that O.T.O. officers considered particularly important in the makeup of O.T.O.

The Book of the Law
Here are a few interesting excerpts

II,21: We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world. Think not, o king, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: verily thou shalt not die, but live. Now let it be understood: If the body of the King dissolve, he shall remain in pure ecstasy for ever. Nuit! Hadit! Ra-Hoor-Khuit! The Sun, Strength & Sight, Light; these are for the servants of the Star & the Snake.

From: Liber AL vel Legis - Chapter II

III,7: I will give you a war-engine.

III,8: With it ye shall smite the peoples; and none shall stand before you.

III,12: Sacrifice cattle, little and big: after a child.

III,18: Mercy let be off: damn them who pity! Kill and torture; spare not; be upon them!

From: Liber AL vel Legis - Chapter III

Comment: We'll this is nice! This reminds me of the entire concept (of what is known) of the Cremation of Care ritual at Bohemian Grove. The art of not feeling guilty about the atrocities you have exercised upon the "fools" and cattle otherwise known as the human family.

Are these the "laws" our (mis)leaders follow? Some of them are known to be satanists. Just listen to what Henry Kissinger said “Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” ...And I guess the rest of us are just "useless eaters".

Ok, psychopaths run the world, nothing new there! Our "leaders" and the administrators promote lies to cover-up staged events like 9-11 and London 7-7 to scare people into submission so they will accept a New World Order fascist state without any protest.

Bloodletting is a major part of this (as I will explore further below). Wars or aka. "theater wars" are ritualistic, dark occult practices where military men (and now women) fight, bleed and die in outfits and uniforms that are awash in (occult) symbolism. The reason for this is that energy or power can be drawn from this. For whatever reason (whether you believe in this or not) those who manage these events continue to do so today... so someting must be working for them!

Compassion is the Vice of Kings
The OTO members learn and practice the principles of Thelema*, as expressed in the Book of the Law. This was explained by the OTO's David Bottrill in the formal complaint against us. He wrote that these principles are taught through a graded series of degrees, or initiations, and are understood through practical engagement with these mysteries in the initiate's own life. But the OTO members don't just practice these principles. Right from the first degrees of the O.T.O. initiates swear to defend the principles of the Book of the Law.

More insight into this dangerous organisation, (whose members form a network including some top names in politics, media and business) was provided in an email to us from a rival faction.

This OTO member wanted to correct us for calling the OTO "Satanists". He thought he should tell us,

"As for being Satanists we deny this. We make any Satanism look like a two year old crying baby, relatively speaking. We sincerely believe the world must be bathed in blood before the Law of Thelema is generally accepted. See Magick in Theory and Practice and the chapter on the Bloody Sacrifice for further details." (search the page for "bloody sacrifice" or "bathed in blood")

What this says is that, according to the OTO Dogma, the Initiation of a New Aeon (The Age of Horus) requires that the whole Planet must be bathed in blood. The "Great War" must be fought before man is ready to accept the Law of Thelema.

Albert Pike and Three World Wars

Albert Pike
As do most occultists, Albert Pike had a "spirit guide," who dispensed "Divine Wisdom" and enlightened him regarding how to achieve the New World Order. A spirit guide is a being who meets someone who has given themselves over to the practice of the occult; however, people who are practitioners of the New Age Religion do not view this as a bad thing. In fact, they would strongly argue that they are filled with happiness and joy by interacting with their spirit guides.

One message that Albert Pike received from his spirit guide, and which in reality we know to be a demonic vision, he described in a letter that he wrote to Mazzini, dated August 15, 1871. This letter graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order, and we can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place. This is not because the devil has powers of prophecy, but because his agents have undertaken to manipulate political events to closely follow his designs.

"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."

Comment: You need to think about this. Is it a good thing that political (mis)leaders, media whores and other contemporary "role models" base their decision making, policies, statements and actions on these philosophical principles? This has nohing to do with philosophical freedom or whether they are freemasons, members of the Illuminati or the O.T.O.

I don't use the term "occultists" with a standard christian view or background. I don't consider channeled information, communication or contact with spirits necessary as and evil or demonic thing. I consider it an interesting phenomena, but that doesn't mean that I believe that all information coming fron "beyond" is ultimate truth that needs to be implemented at all costs either. Humanity are being played like fools on all levels here... It's time to wake up! I feel that on a higher level, Gods plan if you will, these things are part of a learning process... so I say that's it's time to learn the game and get smart!

Our blood is being drawn and those who gain there "power/energy" from this are getting stronger by the minute. It's time to stop all the stupid, secret, hidden, occult, ritualistic behaviour and wake up!
