The word thelema itself is Ancient or Koine Greek for will. While Thelema is most often regarded as a religion —a new religious movement and contemporary mystery religion in particular—it is also referred to as a philosophy”religious philosophy”, “spiritual philosophy”, or “religious matrix”. An adherent of Thelema is traditionally referred to as a Thelemiteand all phenomena within the scope of Thelema are termed Thelemic.
The fundamental axiom, tenet, or boilerplate underlying Thelema—known as the “Law of Thelema”—is “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law”. The traditional corresponding phrase is “Love is the law, love under will. In the thelemic worldview or model, each person has a ” True Will ” and insofar as each person acts in accordance with his or her Will the nature of a person’s interactions with the world or universe is a form of “love” or harmony.
This is expressed further by a third metaphor, “every man and every woman is a star,” which portrays the distinct nature of every individual as residing in a non-overlapping point of space and time; collisions between different persons being infrequent if each is aware of—and acting in accordance with—their true purpose in life.
The overall conception is quite similar to Taoist philosophy but with a cosmological underpinning years more recent. Thelema was developed in the early s by Aleister Crowleyan English writer, mystic, and ceremonial magician.
The Thelemic pantheon includes a number of deities, primarily a trio adapted from ancient Egyptian religionwho are xe three speakers of The Book of the Law: NuitHadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. Crowley described these deities as a “literary convenience”. This statement indicates adherents, known as Thelemites, should seek and follow their true paths in life, known as their True Wills.
He also llei ideas from occultismyogaand both Eastern and Western mysticismespecially the Qabalah. Aspects of Thelema and Crowley’s thought in general provided inspiration for the development of Wicca and, to a certain degree, the rise of Modern Paganism as a whole, as well as, chaos magickand Satanism.
Additionally, aspects of Thelema are believed by scholars such as Hugh Urban to have been an influence on the development of Scientology however, other scholars such as J. Gordon Melton deny any such connections. One well-known example is in the ” Lord’s Prayer ” Matthew 6: In the Renaissancea character named “Thelemia” represents will or desire in the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili of the Dominican friar Francesco Colonna.
The protagonist Poliphilo has two allegorical guides, Logistica reason and Thelemia will or desire. When forced to choose, he chooses fulfillment of his sexual will oei logic.
In the midth century, Sir Francis Dashwood inscribed the adage on a doorway of his abbey at Medmenham where it served as the motto of the Hellfire Club. Ashbee in his utopian romance The Building of Thelema There are, in Greek, two words for will, which are used, for example, in New Testament partly synonym: The verb thelo appears very early Homerearly Attic inscriptions and has the meaning of ‘ready’, ‘Decide’ and ‘desire’ Homer, 3,also in the sexual sense.
In Septuaginta the term is used for the will of God himself, the religious desire of the God-fearing, and the royal will of a secular ruler. It is thus used only for the representation of high ethical willingness in the faith, the exercise of authority by the authorities, or the non-human will, but not for more profane striving. Thus, the different meaning of both concepts was lost. In the New Testament in Koine ‘thelema’ is used 62 times, twice in the plural thelemata.
In the same way the term is used in the Apostle Paul and Ignatius of Antioch. For Tolli it follows that the genuine idea of Thema does not contradict the teachings of Jesus Tolli, Eventually he left the monastery to study medicine, and moved to the French lie of Lyon in There he wrote Gargantua and Pantagruela connected series of books. They tell the story of two giants—a father Gargantua and his son Pantagruel and their adventures—written in an amusing, extravagant, and satirical vein.
Most critics today agree that Rabelais wrote from a Christian humanist perspective. In his first book ch. It is a classical utopia presented in order to critique and assess the state of the society of Rabelais’s day, as opposed to a modern utopian text that seeks to create the scenario in practice.
Rabelais believed that men who dde free, well born and bred have honour, which intrinsically leads to virtuous actions.
When constrained, their noble natures turn instead to remove their servitude, because men desire what they are denied. Some modern Thelemites consider Crowley’s work to build upon Rabelais’s summary of the instinctively honourable nature of the Thelemite. Rabelais has been variously credited with the creation of the philosophy  of Thelema, as one of the earliest people to refer to df,  or with thflema “the first Thelemite”.
Ordo Templi Orientis Grand Lodge has stated:.

Saint Rabelais never intended his satirical, fictional device to serve as a practical blueprint for a real human society Aleister Crowley wrote in The Antecedents of Thelema,an incomplete work not published in his day, that Rabelais not only set forth the law of Thelema in a way similar to how Crowley understood it, but predicted and described in code Crowley’s life and the holy text that he claimed to have received, The Book of the Law.
Crowley said the work he had received was deeper, showing in more detail the technique people should practice, and revealing scientific mysteries. He said that Rabelais confines himself to portraying an ideal, rather than addressing questions of political economy and similar subjects, which must be solved in order to realize the Law. Rabelais is included among the Saints of Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica. Sir Francis Dashwood adopted some of the ideas of Rabelais and invoked the same rule in French, when he founded a group called the Monks of Medmenham better known as the Hellfire Club.
John WilkesGeorge Dodington and other politicians were members. In the opinion of Lt. Towers, the group derived more from Rabelais than the inscription over the door.
Daniel Willens argued ghelema the group likely practiced Freemasonrybut also suggests Dashwood may have held secret Roman Catholic sacraments. He asks if Wilkes would have recognized a genuine Catholic Mass, even if he saw it himself and even if the underground version followed its public model precisely. Thelema was founded by Aleister Crowley — who was an English occultist and writer. InCrowley claimed to have received The Book of the Law from an entity named Aiwasswhich was to serve as the foundation of the religious and philosophical system he called Thelema.
This small book contains three chapters, each of which he claimed to have written in exactly one hour, beginning at noon, on April 8, April 9, and April 10, Crowley claims that he took dictation from an entity named Aiwasswhom he later identified as his tbelema Holy Theleam Angel. Crowley claimed that “no forger could have prepared so complex a set of numerical and literal puzzles” and that study of the text would dispel all doubts about the method of how the book was obtained.
Yeatsattributing this to “shared insight” and perhaps to the older man’s knowledge of Crowley. Crowley wrote several commentaries on The Book of the Lawthe last of which he wrote in This brief statement called simply ” The Comment ” warns against discussing the book’s contents, and states that all “questions of the Law are to be decided only by appeal to my writings” and is signed Ankh-af-na-khonsu.
According to Crowley, every individual thelemx a True Willto be distinguished from the ordinary wants and desires of the ego. The True Will is essentially one’s “calling” or “purpose” in life. Some later magicians have taken this to include the goal of attaining self-realization by one’s own efforts, without the aid of God or other divine authority. This brings them close to the position that Crowley held just prior to The Thelemite is a mystic. In order for the individual to be able to follow their True Will, the everyday self’s socially-instilled inhibitions may have to be overcome via deconditioning.
Thelema draws its principal gods and goddesses from Ancient Egyptian religion. The highest deity in the cosmology of Thelema is the goddess Nuit. She is the night sky arched over the Earth symbolized in the form of a naked woman. She is conceived as the Great Mother, the ultimate source of all things. Hadit symbolizes manifestation, motion, and time. He is symbolized as a throned man with the head of a hawk who carries a wand.
He is associated with the Sun and the active energies of Thelemic magick. Other deities within the cosmology of Thelema are Hoor-paar-kraat or Harpocratesgod of silence and inner strength, the brother of Ra-Hoor-Khuit,  Babalonthe goddess of all pleasure, known as the Virgin Whore,  and Therionthe beast that Babalon rides, who represents the wild animal within man, a force of nature.
Thelemic magick is fhelema system of physical, mental, and spiritual exercises which practitioners believe are of benefit. He recommended magick as a means for discovering the True Will.
He also discussed sex magick and sexual gnosis in various forms including masturbatoryheterosexualand homosexual practices, and these form part of his suggestions for the work of those in the higher degrees of the Ordo Templi Orientis. The emphasis of Thelemic magick is not directly on material results, and while many Thelemites do practice magick for goals such as wealth or love, it is not required.
Thelemites, both independent ones and those affiliated with an order, can practice a thele,a of performative prayer known as Liber Resh. If the aspirant is unprepared, he will cling to the ego instead, becoming a Black Brother.
Rather than becoming one with God, the Black Brother considers his ego to be god. Crowley taught skeptical examination of all results obtained through meditation or magickat least for the student.
Crowley stated that his work and that of his followers used “the method of science; the aim of religion”,  and that the genuine powers of the magician could thelemx some way be objectively tested. This idea has been taken on d later practitioners of Thelema, chaos magic and magick in general.
They may consider that they are testing hypotheses with llei magical experiment. The difficulty lies in the broadness of their definition of success,  in which they may see as evidence of success things which a non-magician would not define as such, leading to confirmation bias.
Crowley believed he could demonstrate, by his own example, the effectiveness of magick in producing certain subjective experiences that do not ordinarily result from taking hashishenjoying oneself in Paris, or walking through the Sahara desert. Liber AL vel Legis does make clear some standards of individual conduct. The primary of these is “Do what thou wilt” which is presented as the whole of tjelema law, and lwi as a right.
Some interpreters of Thelema believe that this right includes an obligation to allow others to do their own wills without interference,  but Liber AL makes no clear statement on the matter. Crowley himself wrote that there was no need to detail the ethics of Thelema, for everything springs from “Do what thou Wilt”.
Liber Oz enumerates some of the rights of the individual implied by the one overarching right, “Do what thou wilt”. For each person, these include the right to: Duty is described as “A note on the chief rules of practical conduct to be observed by those who accept the Law of Thelema. The Message of the Master Therionthe Law of Thelema is summarized succinctly as “Do what thou wilt—then do nothing else.
It is Nirvana but in a dynamic rather than static form.
The True Will is described tthelema the individual’s orbit, and if they seek to do anything else, they will encounter obstacles, as doing anything other than the will is a hindrance to it. The core of Thelemic thought is “Do what thou wilt”.
