Cairo. 1904. Aleister Crowley, the Great Beast, the Beast 666, claimed that some intelligence from the spirit realm wrote The Book of the Law through him. Crowley regarded it as THE book of his magical philosophy.


On page 164, The Book of the Law 3:23, 24 we meet some loathsome saying. “For perfume mix meal & honey & thick leavings of red wine: then oil of Abramelin and olive oil, and afterward soften & smooth down with rich fresh blood. The best blood is of the moon, monthly: then the fresh blood of a child, or dripping from the host of heaven: then of enemies; then of the priest or of the worshippers: last of some beast, no matter what”.
There is nothing symbolic in this as you can see from the violent contrasts in it. Honey and blood. Menstrual blood and animal blood. Nor does the commentary try to make this out to be symbolic. Blood sacrifice is approved.
It is commonsense that occult claims that orgasms can substitute as power sources for sacrifices are either smokescreens or wishful thinking. It is as unnatural as saying that milk is the only food you need. And the fact remains that they are still admitting that sacrifice works! Sacrifice then would be better than orgasm for sacrifice is taking a life and is highly charged emotionally and in every sense. It's a big deal unlike an orgasm!
Verse 46 asserts, “I am the warrior Lord of the Forties: the Eighties cower before me, & are abased. I will bring you victory and joy: I will be at your arms in battle & ye shall delight to slay”.
Verse 46 seems to be a prophecy of the Second World War until you remember that the Lord would be doing the fighting himself in the world so it is ambiguous. Every decade had some big wars that served to drive many nations into the course that Crowley would want them to take.
The Eighties have not bent the knee to Crowley’s hypocritical and moralising and yet amoral deity and he has not become to the world what Jesus Christ has become to the Vatican.
The last line we have quoted in the verse says that Crowley’s disciples will conquer by bloodshed. An utterly failed prophecy.
Pages 176 and 177 promise that if women are emancipated and allowed to be sexually free then the “crime of abortion”, sex-related shame, blackmail, jealousy, domestic misery and prostitution will tend to disappear. There will always be things like jealousy to lead to these things. The book maintains that the spread of sexual disease will be checked for if sex is accepted as decent people will not be afraid to hide and ignore anything they catch by it. But you can be ashamed of sex and still take care of yourself.

Crowley wrote regarding The Book of the Law, “The study of this Book is forbidden. It is wise to destroy this copy after the first reading. Whosever disregards this does so at his own risk and peril. These are most dire. Those who discuss the contents of this Book are to be shunned by all, as centuries of pestilence” (page 284).
The only bad consequences of reading The Book of the Law which is full of obscure poetic mumbo-jumbo and has nothing profound in it will be disgusted at it and disgusted oneself for wasting time on it.
The commentary is unworthy of a favourable estimate as well. It was written to dupe and make converts for the wily Crowley. And it is amenable to use lies and slanders and half-truths to achieve this. “The English Bible sanctions the polygamy and concubinage of Abraham, Solomon and others, the incest of Lot, the wholesale rape of captured virgins, as well as the promiscuity of the first Christians, the prostitution of temple servants, men and women, the relations of Johannes with his master, and the putting of wandering Prophets to stud, as well as the celibacy of such people as Paul” (page 180). The only things the Bible sanctions from this list are polygamy and celibacy and then monogamous marriage. Never does it say that Johannes, John, had a gay affair with Jesus Christ. It is well known that the accusations in the quote are mostly lies. Crowley and the editors of the commentary were liars for if they had made mistakes they would have removed them.
Isn’t it obvious by now that the real author of The Book of the Law was Aleister Crowley himself and not the spirit he allegedly channel in Cairo, in 1904? A spirit didn’t write it but who gives a damn?

APPENDIX: Occultists have been known to sacrifice animals. Many groups practice this and lie about it. Most occultists say that sex magic is a good replacement for sacrifice. The occult that orgasm can substitute in magical ritual for an animal sacrifice is ludicrous. An animal fighting for its life is giving into the strongest instinct of all which is survival not sex. Sex energy cannot compare to that. And surely the fact that they are still saying animal sacrifice is effective should raise serious alarm bells? They cannot be serious so we can blame occultism as a whole for animal sacrifice even if they disapprove.
