It has been near a decade since I first read The Autobiography of a Yogi. I didn’t know it at the time but like many others before me this book would be a book that changed my life. The contents of the book tell the story of a young boy who travels the world in […]
One of our readers recently took the time to write in with a rebuttal to our article Thelema a Destructive Path I found the the information provided to be quite insightful and with permission of the writer I am posting it here for all of you to read.

I’ve been reading articles on excommunicate.net off and on for a couple years now. I find many of them very helpful + enjoyable in various ways, but found one which I think is quite inaccurate and could use some re-thinking, editing, or a commentary from a different perspective. This article, written on 9/6/07 is called “Thelema, a destructive path?” (http://www.excommunicate.net/thelema-a-destructive-path). Here are some of my thoughts on this issue, from the perspective of a Thelemite. I’m sure other Thelemites would have more to say, and I’m certainly no authority on the matter.
One more thing, I hope you, the author, or whomever takes the time to read this, since I did put a lot of thought and time into it. Please don’t interpret any of it as hostile either; no emotion or insult is intended in any of my response.

The Western world is undoubtedly the vanguard of the human race, and, for reasons given in the following pages, it is held by the Rosicrucian that neither Judaism nor “popular Christianity,” but true Esoteric Christianity is to be its world-religion.
Buddha, great, grand and sublime, may be the “light of Asia,” but Christ will yet be acknowledged the “Light of the World.” As the sun outshines the brightest star in the heavens, dispels every vestige of darkness and gives life and light to all beings, so, in a not too distant future, will the true religion of Christ supersede and obliterate all other religions, to the eternal benefit of mankind.
THE NEW GOLDEN DAWN FLYING ROLL II
The Immortal Science of the Sages
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Today, in this technological age of man, Alkhemi is looked upon as mere rubbish of the past, a dark and fanciful cloud upon the sky of history. Yet this is not the case at all; and this I shall endeavor to demonstrate to you through words of practical significance and wisdom, since Alkhemi is in fact the True Science of every wise and practical man who lives upon the face of the earth.
Alkhemi is comparable to the Sun of the Ages, which ever remains perfectly poised in the infinite sky. It is not the fault of the Sun if men cannot see it; it is due to their own lack of vision. Yet the Sun ever shines bright for those who have eyes to see; and in seeing the Sun men become enlightened.
