DO WHAT THOU WILT SHALL BE THE WHOLE OF THE LAW.

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 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]
Aleister Crowley gets an oblique name check in an advice column about pubic hair at “The Serenity Prayer of Pubic Hair “. That wasn’t the sex cult I thought Aleister Crowley was talking about …
“Aleister Crowley may not have given the world a lot of useful wisdom, but he was right about one thing: when it comes to pubes, do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”
“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”
