As a first principle of Thelemic Philosophy, "Love Under Will" is both rich, and philosophically deep in its meanings. With multiple levels of interpretation, this phrase is one of our core "Memetic Anchors" which drives Thelemic culture.
People with little experience or knowledge of this phrase are often very curious about the relationship of Love and Will in terms of people's own intimate dynamics. In our own relationships we often interact with individuals who want to know how this translates into the relational interactivity of Intimate Love.
I am curious how other people who claim themselves as Thelemites have found this philosophy to fit, or guide their own experience of intimate love andcaring in all facets of human relationships.
This seems to me to be the the most important, ways other individuals come to know and experience the fruits of Thelema in their lives.
Like all religious texts, The Book of the Law offers numerous possibilities for interpretation. Thelema speaks to the idiosyncrasies of the individual. Yet, in one's own relationships when theory meets the dynamic ground of praxis, these ideas must bear fruit in some form.
The key question: how does "Love Under Will" translate into friendships, relations with family members, and intimate lovers?
For all of the metaphysical and theological complexity, how does philosphical rubber meet the road in the daily application of this philosophy to those whom you care about?
