Open discussion of Thelema, magic, and other “occult” topics serves as both learning and teaching. That being said, thank you for keeping these guidelines in mind and enjoy teaching and learning with us!
it would probably be most appropriate that the first topic posted under the category of Gnosticism should focus on something iconic like Thunder The Perfect Mind or Valentian theology but as I’m not an appropriate person, I’ll start with this:
Before I jumped into Thelema with both balls, I adhered to a wild syncretic form of Luciferian Gnosticism that was frequently interrupted, to my chagrin and no thanks to my Wife, by Christian Gnosticism. Many related books found their way to our shelves. One set in particular had the most perplexing effects upon us.
I’m curious if anyone here has read the Books of Azrael and what your impressions might be.

A most amazing expression of real magick happens when an ascetic becomes a libertine, or a libertine becomes an ascetic ...so long as the sublime arrow’s prick within the heart of hearts is true. It is only the threshold of change that remains fixed.
I have not read that book, but now I am curious. Just don’t expect a lightning fast review. I have a huge pile of “must read” at the moment, although I will say my pile looks boring compared to this recommendation. 🙂
