April 1991 e.v. at Thelema Lodge

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

Announcements from
Lodge Members and Officers


News of the Lodge:

Effective immediately, Thelema Lodge has a new Lodge Master. Brother Jerry Cornelius has ascended to the leadership of the oldest, continuously operating Lodge in O.T.O. Jerry is one of the most experienced Lodge Masters we have in the Order. His Brocken Mountain Lodge lasted for many years in New England and was one of the founding Lodges in the Eastern United States. Hundreds of O.T.O. initiates have benefited from study of his degree papers and from the research archive he has maintained.
Thanks are due to Brother Mordechai for the work he did in pulling the Lodge together after the upsets we had last year. His time as Lodge Master was one of healing and kindness in adversity. With the publication of the last of his cycle of poems, "The Half Lyre", he has stepped down from a job well done. We look forward to the eventual continuation of his article on the Gnostic Mass, begun last issue. Vale and gratitude to Fr. Faustus!

Personal correspondence for the new Lodge Master, as distinct from general correspondence to Thelema lodge, should be addressed to:

J. Edward Cornelius
P.O.Box 11667
Berkeley, CA 94701-2667 USA

or he can be reached at the following phone number:

(415) ... ....
Leave a message if no one is there and he'll get back when he can.

APRIL 1991 e.v.

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

Four score and seven years ago in Cairo on April 8, 9, and 10 a New Law for mankind was announced over the left shoulder of Frater Perdurabo the scribe. On each of these three days he entered the temple and sat down at the stroke of noon to devote himself for exactly an hour to the preternatural pronouncements of Aiwass. (There was no "pagan standard time" at the Equinox of the Gods!) "The voice was of deep timbre, musical and expressive, its tones solemn, voluptuous, tender, fierce . . . . The English was free of either native or foreign accent. (The effect was thus as if the language were 'English-in-itself,' without any background)". Our modern tradition amongst Thelemites locally has been to gather in commemoration of the Aeon with a celebrative reading of the three chapters of Liber AL, each in the evening of the day on which it was originally received. S.F.Bay Area readings this year are set for 8:00--on Monday 8 April at Ancient Ways with Sirius Oasis (call 653-3244); Tuesday 9 April at the Gilman Street Project with Alien Gods Productions (524-8180); and Wednesday 10 April in Horus Temple at Thelema Lodge (654-3580). Please call for confirmation before setting forth to attend. And don't neglect to join the rest of us as we sacrifice an hour o'clock on the previous morning in honor of the Holy Days this year (daylight- saving time gets under way at 2=3 AM Sunday 7 April).

Sunday nights at 8:00 each week the lodge offers a public celebration of the Mass of the Gnostic Catholic Church in Horus Temple. All attending should be communicants in the ritual, but newcomers are especially welcome to join the lodge for mass; please call ahead at 654-3580. For those interested in learning the mass (as set forth in Crowley's Liber XV) an afternoon workshop will be conducted in Horus Temple at 4:18 by Bishop T. Dionysus on Sunday 28 April. As it happens, the mass workshop conjoins our Taurus birthday party this month, so there'll be cake afterwards. Aspiring mass teams are invited to request a date on the Horus Temple schedule; they need to be present (or represented) at the regular monthly lodge meeting.

This spring the Bay Area welcomes a newly operating temple of the Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica; regular monthly masses are being celebrated at Nefertiti Sanctuary in the city of San Francisco on Friday nights, with the next date scheduled for 5 April at 8:00. Call 566-0675 for an invitation.

Initiates of Ordo Templi Orientis are invited to assist at the reception of candidates into their degrees, and join in the feasting after the Minerval ceremony. Initiations at the lodge are planned for Saturday 20 April, but it's important to call ahead to discuss the particular times, degrees, and locations involved. To undergo initiation forty days formal notice is required; inquire of the lodgemaster (or one of his officers) for an application, or write to the Thelema Lodge Initiation Secretary, P.O. Box 2303, Berkeley, CA 94702. Second degree initiates are invited to a workshop on the ceremony of that degree, which we will discuss and rehearse with the lodgemaster on Sunday afternoon 14 April at 4:18. On 21 April, the Sunday following initiations, we'll have an afternoon of lodge clean-up; please support your temple and come help beat the carpets, wash the windows, and banish the demons.

Tuesday April 16th, A special night of occult oriented trash video collages of anti-satanic propaganda as spread across the air waves into our TV's by such misguided folk as Geraldo, Salley Jessie Raphael, Current Affair, CNN News, John Ankerberg and many, many more. Come see, watch in horror, laugh and make rude remarks and jeer. Guaranteed to make you go away talking ... Popcorn not supplied. Starts promptly at 8:00 PM, so don't be late. Donations requested to help the lodge. Call the Lodge for location.

The Tarot series with Bill Heidrick meets once in April at 8:00 in the temple on Wednesday 17 April, the fifth of ten classes. Bill's celebrated and long-running slide lectures, with sample Tarot readings, display decks, and substantial hand-outs of original interpretative material are a mainstay of the lodge's continuing efforts as a thelemic study center.
The newly-established Magick in Theory and Practice Study Circle will gather with Marlene the following Wednesday evening, 24 April, at 8:00. This group is for all levels of experience and is intended to facilitate individual exploration into practical approaches to Magick. The text by Crowley will be used as a basis for discussion.
The Magick Theater offers the latest in ancient fare; this month we'll be reading The Bacchae of Euripides (circa anno 406, aeon before last), arranged as a communion rite in an outstanding modern African translation. "A Dramatic Ritual . . . . is a celebration of the Adventures of the God whom it is intended to invoke. The Bacchae of Euripides is a perfect example of this.
Magick Without Tears. Reading begins at 7:30 in Horus Temple on Tuesday 30 April; texts provided for readers and auditors.

Lodge meeting for calendar, business, and palaver is Monday evening 29 April at 8:00. Those able to take an active role in the affairs of the lodge are urged to attend and coordinate their efforts.
The Lodge of Perfection meets privately on Thursday evening 18 April.
Thelema Lodge hosts a Ladies' T on Monday afternoon 15 April from 5:30 to 7:30. Thelemic women invited to share tea and secrets.

Jerry's Logorrhea: You might be asking yourself, "What is Jerry's Logorrhea and why should I attend?" (or is it contagious?) Those are good questions. To understand, it might be best to look at the term logorrhea which is used primarily in psychology. When the word is broken down we know logo means the word and the term roai in Greek implies flowing forth. Thus some dictionaries define logorrhea as "excessive and incoherent talking." In some ways this often summons up the talks which I, as a babbling Cancer with Scorpio Moon have planned for the future. Still want to attend? If there is any doubt you might want to talk to those survivors who sat through my lectures in the past, or attempted to listen to my ramblings while sipping beer in my living room. A few who shall remain nameless have often pointed their fingers at me, shaking their heads, exclaiming, "My God you've got logorrhea!". I'm not sure if it was meant in a positive way, but I sort of like the word and thus came to birth "Jerry's Logorrhea" classes. I can only say these fireside chats will not be dull, and in fact you might actually learn something! As with all my classes popcorn is not being supplied. Also, show up early as this neurotic Cancer has this weird tendency to start classes on time. (How absurd, you might say!)
The topics of these talks will most likely be decided a few days before the scheduled date of each logorrhea. You can call in advance if you'd like to know the basic subject matter, but often even I may not know what idle chatter will strew forth till I open my mouth.
April 26th, May 11th and 24th. Call The Lodge for location and time.

Looking to May, Sol goes fifteen degrees Taurus on Sunday 5 May for Beltane, which we'll probably observe with Tyl Ulenspiegl and Lucifer the King of Spring in the afternoon before mass. Find the advance May calendar (in this issue) for projected class dates and regular events.

Love is the law. love under will.


from the Grady Project:

Saturn

Your eyes are as wise as the world
Your lips are a mockery
Of paint, your hair is curled
With the shape of the pottery
Of ancient Thrace, your face
I have seen when convolutes
Of meteor dust have swirled
Between the flowing roots
Of Yggdrasill, I know
The thoughts you have dreamed and lost,
For I am he whose foe
Is king of the giants, Frost.

Crowley on Disk --- update:

With the completion of primary entry of Equinox I, #'s 1-10, it's time to give an update on the Crowley computer text project. Between 14 and 15 megabytes of the works of Aleister Crowley are currently on 5 1/4 inch IBM PC diskettes. Most of this material is still unproofed and in XYWrite word processor format. Many of the texts are available in ASCII, and more are being converted as proofreading proceeds. The Equinox is available in ASCII now for #'s. 1-6. All "Class A" works are available. The other texts include Confessions, Magick in Theory and Practice, Magick Without Tears, Liber Aleph, The Gospel According to St. Bernard Shaw and many more. At least one Master's Degree Thesis has made use of these files, and persons having IBM PC 5 1/4 diskette compatibility may wish to write to the GTG for a print-out listing available titles. Many of these texts wind up on the BBS modem accessible services affiliated with the Order.

For a list of available Crowley texts in computer format and instructions for ordering, please write to

This is a non-profit service of Grand Lodge O.T.O. for research purposes only, subject to time available delays.

{Note to Web edition: These texts are no longer available on diskette, but they may be obtained via email attachment or from various Websites.}


TREASURY TALKS

OK, ok! I know it's been a long time but here is another Treasury Report. This report covers December 1990 to February 1991e.v.
An explanation of the categories below may prove illuminating. The first MASSES is rather self-explanatory, the monies out usually go for candles as the Mass teams still supply their own wine and roses. MEETINGS also include classes-- basically any calendar event that is not a Mass or Initiation. The DONATIONS category is for monies given to the Lodge apart from the other categories [thank you!] and also includes any benefits or FUNdraisers that occured. INITIATIONS was the most difficult to categorize. The monies earned in fees and spent in supplies is shown on that row. Below it is [*] this indicates monies recieved in fees that are for initiation in a different month than when the monies were entered in the Lodge Treasury.

If anybody out there has ANY ideas on how to raise monies let me know! Simply drop a postcard to 536 41st St., Oakland, CA 94609.

SHEMAHAMPHORASH

From Magical Correspondences, © Bill Heidrick, a work in progress

The following 72 angelic names are a great and ancient mystery of ceremonial Magick and the Qabalah. They constitute the "Schemahamphorasch", the great divided name of God. The 72 names are derived from three consecutive verses in the Hebrew text of Exodus. These verses consist of exactly 72 letters each. The first of these verses, Exodus XIV, 19, is written right to left in the normal fashion of writing Hebrew. The second of these verses, Exodus XIV, 20, is then written beneath the first backwards, from left to right. Beneath these two is written the third verse, Exodus XIV, 21, in the normal order again, from right to left. This gives a list of 72 columns of letters with three letters in each column. To each of these three- letter columns two additional letters are appended. These additional letters are Aleph-Lamed, Aleph-Lamed, or Yod-Heh, Yod-Hay; El or Yah, two names of God. There are other ways to form the Schemahamphorasch and other lists of names drawn upon for this practice. The method is mentioned in several sources including Semiphoras and Schemhamporas, a 17th century work reprinted and available widely in a quite odd anthology called The Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses. These names are also to be found in Barrett's The Magus, I. Regardie's The Golden Dawn, Crowley's Liber 777, and Kircher's Oedipus Aegyptiacus. The angelic names are used in the Golden Dawn and Crowley's system for attribution to the Lesser Trumps of Tarot. The lists in 777 and Regardie's The Golden Dawn contain errors, as do most sources. Every effort has been made to avoid errors here, but it is a simple matter for anyone to check these names with the aid of a copy of the Masoretic Text of the Torah.
The process whereby the names "El" and "Yah" are selected to complete these names is not generally known. It is possible that "EL" is used to indicate Male and "Yah" to indicate Female bias in the names, but there are other plausible reasons for picking one ending over the other.
The names are attributed to the five-degree divisions of the Zodiac starting with the first division of Leo and continuing around the Zodiac in much the same fashion as do the Decans.

Web Edition Corrective Notes:
a. This year's total was too high by 179 in the printed edition, through an error

in adding Yugoslavia twice. The correct count at February 1991 e.v.
was 1,577, as now adjusted above.
b. This total has now been corrected. Yugoslavia was added twice, giving an
incorrect count of 581 in the original printed edition, when the
correct count was 402.
