Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. In this short and powerful book you will find infinite depth and wisdom. Nothing more true has ever been written. The pattern of the universe is laid forth in 65 pages. If you are to only read one book your whole life, this is most definately it. I have read it over a dozen times and follow the Law laid therein for the balance of the universe is at stake. My life is dedicated to Thelema and I cannot imagine myself without it. Love is the law, love under will.

This is an inspired text and foundational to the system of Thelema. People who call it Satanic merely expose their own ignorance. Freedom, liberation, illumination and love are all available to those who take this book into their heart. I highly recommend you read it and form your own opinion.

Everything that glitters..... From what I?ve read of AC it seemes like he was fairly certain of a couple of things. The first being that this book was his most significant or seminal work. The second being that he was 666, and not just any devil or demon but the official biblical Beast. So if AC is 666, then would it not be unreasonable to suspect that this book is perhaps not the blueprint for heaven on earth or man?s ascension to the higher realms that a lot of these reviews seem to be making it out to be? AC and this book might be inspiration for a lot of great musicians and Hollywood, but if it was also the inspiration for people like Hitler and Manson (not to say Manson wasn?t a victim of bad PR) then it would seem a fair question. I?m not not talking about petty morals here. I?m talking about where the 20th century is ending up. Granted a lot of the book is just a restatement of Old Testament bloodlust, and the rule of the strong has always pretty much been the law. Still what little promise there was of a great society or some kind of real equality was pretty much finished off by the hedonistic, ethic-less corporate culture that reached its full stature in this century. What the CIA did abroad the PR industry and Hollywood did at home and abroad. I don?t think I am misreading this book. Joyously stomping out your enemies, cooking them and eating them, it?s all in there. And the author does take credit for a couple of the high points of this century. ?I am the warlord of the ?40s and the ?80s cower before me and are abased?. The ?40s speak for themselves and the ?80s really did seem to ring the moral death knell for Western civilization and I don?t just mean the freeBASE cocaine and bad music. I?m talking Reaganomics and a corporate readjustment that began and foreshadowed the phenomenal upward concentration of wealth and power. Now as the nitwit brings us ever closer to WW III and global ecological disaster it becomes clearer where the Gipper was actually steering things in that glorious decade. Not that the book seems anymore prescient or whacked out than the Bible, the Torah or Dianetics, and its not that I don?t have sympathy for the guy. I pretty much agree with his views on the major religions, and if I?d been raised Plymouth brethren as was he I might think I was the devil too. But I still have to question is the bloodlust just an unhappy childhood or something worse?

Crowley worked decades to interpet the meaning of the law, but much is still hidden and unjustly feared. Remember that Crowley is one of the first victims of mass-media tabloid sensation.

I feel that every individual has the right to read and review 'The Book of The Law' for themselves. 'The Book of The Law' has answered all of the questions I've ever had concerning the Holy Mysteries of Life and beyond. In my own opinion, 'The Book of The Law' is a true work of enlightenment which has guided me to strive for conversation and union with my Holy Gaurdian Angel of Love. There is nothing that I've ever found that is more comforting and peaceful than realizing that my Holy Gaurdian Angel exists and has waited for me to recognize him. Thank you for letting me share my feelings.

Interesting how all the Satanist literature is all about ancient Egyptian deities
