  A Brief History of the Teaching

General Thelema Posted by <Xnoubis> on Thursday October 12, @04:10PM
from the another-fine-messiah dept.

In the holiday spirit, I offer this story that I first heard in Atlanta back in the Eulis Lodge days.

About 2500 years ago, a teacher was born named Siddharta. He grew up, experienced suffering, became enlightened, taught. Eventually, he died.

God greeted him warmly: “Siddharta, my boy! Wonderful job! Here, come and sit at my right hand.”

About 500 years later, a teacher was born named Yeheshua. He grew up, experienced suffering, became enlightened, taught. Eventually&nbsp– rather suddenly, in fact&nbsp– he died.

God greeted him warmly: “Yeheshua, my boy! Great job! I might have done a few things differently myself, but regardless, come and sit at my left hand.”

Not quite 1900 years later, a teacher was born named Aleister. He grew up, experienced suffering, became enlightened, taught – and had a really interesting time of it. Nonetheless, eventually he died.

God greeted him very warmly: “Aleister, Aleister, my boy! Superb job! Here, come and sit on my lap.”

“HEY!” Aleister said, gesturing with his thumb, “Outta my chair!”


And a Wicked Crowleymas to us all.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Great.

I loved that.

Did you make that up?

Love is the law, love under will.

I was serious about Atlanta. Bill Padgett (sp?) told it to a group of us, must have been around 1986.\\
