Aleister Crowley’s influence on Raul Seixas and Paulo Coelho appears to be a major topic in “Beginning, Middle and End”, a Brazilian documentary by Walter Carvalho

Aleister Crowley’s influence on Raul Seixas and Paulo Coelho appears to be a major topic in “Beginning, Middle and End”, a Brazilian documentary by Walter Carvalho due to release in March, according to “Crowley, Seixas e Coelho expostos“, an article from back at the beginning of January.

“Montanhista, enxadrista, poeta, crítico social, mago ocultista e dedicado pesquisador da ‘magia sexual’ e do efeito místico das drogas. Essas são algumas das qualificações do britânico Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). Rotulado pela imprensa sensacionalista de sua época como ‘o homem mais perverso do mundo’, Crowley resistiu à morte e ao tempo e chega a 2012 intacto em sua aura de mistério e controvérsia.

O mago é um dos assuntos de maior destaque no filme ‘O início, o fim e o meio’, documentário de Walter Carvalho sobre Raul Seixas que estreia em março. Junto ao parceiro Paulo Coelho, Raul fundou a sua famosa Sociedade Alternativa baseado nas ideias de Crowley (em especial no ‘Faze o que tu queres, pois é tudo da lei’, ensinamento tirado do ‘Livro da Lei’).” [via]

 


“Aleister Crowley é montanhista, enxadrista, poeta, crítico social, mago e dedicado pesquisador da ‘magia sexual’ e do efeito místico das drogas no corpo” [via]
(“Aleister Crowley is mountaineer, chess player, poet, social critic, magician and dedicated researcher of ‘sexual magic’ and the mystical effect of drugs on the body”)

 

My naive attempt at a translation, with the help of Google’s translation robot:

Mountaineer, chess player, poet, social critic, occult magician and dedicated researcher of the ‘sexual magic’ and the mystical effect of drugs. These are some of the qualifications of the British Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). Labeled by the tabloid press of his day as ‘the wickedest man in the world,’ Crowley survived death and the times and reaches 2012 intact with his aura of mystery and controversy.

The magician is one of the most prominent issues in the movie ‘Beginning, Middle and End’, a documentary by Walter Carvalho about Raul Seixas which debuts in March. Along with partner Paulo Coelho, Raul founded his famous Alternative Society based on the ideas of Crowley (in particular ‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law’ taken from the ‘Book of the Law’).” [via]

Magick

 

Magick” by Klaxons from Myths Of The Near Future

“Magick, without tears
Magick, without tears
Magick, without tears
The magick-al veneer

The way to mother goose
The way to suck an egg
The way to golden dawn
The way to Koh Phangan

The glitter on the snow
the place to always go
Do what you will
Do what you will”

 

See Magick Without Tears, Book 4’s interlude on nursery rhymes, The Book of Lies chapter 69, the Golden Dawn Library Project, The Diary of a Drug Fiend (via Amazon), and, of course, The Book of the Law [also]

New Old Taboo post links to Liber II while discussing how to interpret “Do What Thou Wilt”

New Old Taboo post at Liber II Do What Thou Wilt links to Liber II, The Message of The Master Therion while discussing how to interpret “Do What Thou Wilt”.

In spite of some fevered responses, the Old Taboo post does indeed discuss “Do What Thou Wilt” without an obligatory “shall be the whole of the Law” added at the end or followed by “Love is the law, love under will”. Take a gander at paragraph two at the source.

But, these also may be of additional interest for those having an artificial allergy attack:

“Hoor hath a secret fourfold name: it is Do What Thou Wilt.” — T Polyphilus, Service Celebrating the Feast for the Supreme Ritual

See also AL III,49.

“There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt.” — AL III,60

Here’s a google search for occurrences at hermetic.com of the words “do what thou wilt”.

That search further demonstrates use of those four words other than just the way they appear as an excerpt from AL I,40 including in several other libri.

And, indeed, the phrase “Love is the law, love under will” appears elsewhere at AL I,57.

As a beginning to looking into “the word of the Law” try a site search on word of the Law and AL I,39.
