Spermo-gnostics and the ordo templi orientis (english ways to make some money)

Aleister crowley maintained that the task of his sexmagical organisation ways to make some money ordo templi orientis (O.T.O.) was "to restore christianity to its real status as a solar–phallic religion." the structure of the O.T.O., like that of freemasonry, is based on a staged series of initiations or degrees. The essence of the order is in its higher degrees; strictly speaking only members of these degrees are considered to ways to make some money be members of the O.T.O. Proper. VII°: adoration of the phallus, both within and without. VIII°: interaction outside the closed vessels of the vagina and the ways to make some money anus. Sexual fluids might be mixed with saliva and then rubbed ways to make some money into the absorbent tissues of the anus and perineum, as well as the external correspondences to the chakras (solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown). They also might be used to anoint the internal anus, then transferred as ‘triune elixir’ (semen, anal elixirs, and saliva) back to the mouth. The fluids may also be anointed on the eyelids and/or the entire cabbalistic middle pillar. IX°: interaction within the vagina involving either menstrual blood or the ways to make some money secretions of a woman when sexually aroused. X °: impregnation and fertilisation of an egg; also the act of creation or succession (for example, the election of the leader, the outer head of the order.). XI°: two–fold — (i) isolation in the anus where there is no interaction at ways to make some money all — (ii) interaction with excrement and small amounts of blood (when small wounds occur through intercourse), mucus and, of course, the mucous membranes that lead directly to the blood supply. Crowley’s own preference was that "I am inclined to believe that the xith degree is ways to make some money better than the ixth degree." ultimately in the O.T.O’s sexual magick everything came down to semen — more recently likened to a computer hard–disk pre–formatted to be loaded with software and used at will. Crowley: "the industrial use of semen will revolutionize human society." his instructional text ‘amrita’ defines the use of semen as counteracting "asthma, bronchitis, neurasthenia, obesity, stricture, some cardiac distress, greying hair, loss of interest in sex." to avoid charges of quackery, the current american O.T.O. Or ‘caliphate’ denies the medicinal use of this ‘elixir of life’, and claims that it "does not practice medicine." for sacramental purposes, this O.T.O. Uses hosts made with honey, meal, and wine–lees called ‘cakes of light’ (which may however contain small quantities of blood or semen: "ashes from burned cakes of light prepared according to crowleys’ liber AL III;23[–25] would be acceptable as an additional ingredient"). (1963–1967 the swiss O.T.O. Used a total of 3,000 hosts obtained by the crowleyites from a genuine catholic ways to make some money convent. The incense–grains had been opportunely supplied by the chief sacristan of ways to make some money st. Gallen cathedral. And the wine for the mass came directly from the ways to make some money bishop.) — according to crowley these cakes should include menstrual fluids, but "in my mass the host is of excrement" — magically speaking, blood and excrement attracting spirits, sperm keeping them alive. He also noted in his diary on may 30, 1923 that "the dalai lama is right to have the faithful eat ways to make some money his excrement." there are many other elements of O.T.O. Doctrines that can prove inimical to its public relations image: the requirement for the crucifixion of a frog in one ways to make some money O.T.O. Initiation ritual, advice given to members that they can consider those without ways to make some money the pale of the order as inferior beings, and blatantly anti–democratic elements in the various O.T.O. Constitutions, antisemitic statements and texts that could be said to interfere ways to make some money with religious freedoms, just to mention a few. Theodor reuss, german founder of these oriental templars in 1906, went further: within the O.T.O. Community the use of money was to be forbidden. Every member over 18 was obliged to labour daily; those refusing to work were to be punished by forced ways to make some money labour. In reuss’s O.T.O. Utopia, each child was brought up by the community, where doctor–priests under parental supervision would teach children from the earliest ways to make some money age on that the sex organs were holy (maybe crowley’s idea that all children from infancy should be accustomed ways to make some money to witnessing every type of sexual act came from this.) those who were not found capable of producing healthy children ways to make some money by a ‘medical board’ were not allowed to breed, while those who produced children despite this decree would be ways to make some money punished by forced labour. These extreme ideas have not survived in modern versions of ways to make some money the O.T.O., if indeed they were ever espoused beyond reuss’s essay. While the O.T.O.’s initiatory system is a sort of bureaucratic club game, it has a religiously associated section under its obedience: the gnostic catholic church. It intends "to restore christianity to its real status as a solar–phallic religion." in 1906, chevalier le clément de st.–marcq had published a booklet about the sacred spermatophagy, called ‘L’eucharistie’. It described what reuss called the ultimate secret of the ways to make some money religious aspect of the O.T.O.: the more sperm you eat, the more the manifestation of the christ takes place within ways to make some money you: no women are necessary for that. The consumption of sexual secretions borders on anthropophagia, the assimilation of selected individuals who possess awe–inspiring powers, in order to neutralise or even to use them. The gnostic aim is to release the human from his ways to make some money stifling entanglement with the physical universe, and to help the pure spirit in its return to ways to make some money its divine potential. One common characteristic of all the spermo–gnostics in the context of most of the many O.T.O.–versions is a reduction of the sexuality unto the male ways to make some money physiology. Orgasm for pure reasons of lust is avoided, unless ejaculation is refrained from, or the intention is directed to drift away from the ways to make some money immanent orgasm and concentrate itself upon wishes that under the ways to make some money circumstances appear worldly in the extreme. Sperm remains the point of focus. In the enthusiastic high of the genetic and gnostic superiority ways to make some money of the male, femaleness vegetates in a bizarre no–mansland of androgynous necessity and almost reprehensible superfluousness. The female logos remains mute. In the O.T.O.’s gnostic mass a host called cake of light contains ways to make some money the logos. Ingredients are sperm, blood and vaginal secrets. This cake of light is made outside the ritual of ways to make some money the gnostic mass. It is given its character in the making. It is consecrated, but not transsubstantiated. The deity in the cake of light is the ‘childe’, properly an aspect of horus (or a sort of homunculus) and not of either osiris or the cognate christ. Transmutation is change of form, in the instance of the pertinent passage in crowley’s mass, by chemical processes of digestion. Transsubstantiation, on the other hand, is change of essential quality without change of form. Transmutation is a physiological process. Transsubstantiation is a non–physical process. Thus, a cake of light is transmuted in the preparation, to afford a character appropriate to the "miracle of the mass": it’s a sexmagical medium of the participant’s will (the ritual itself can be interpreted as a mirror of ways to make some money the perpetual creation of the universe). Similar passages can be found in the VIII° ritual of the O.T.O.: "and, forasmuch as meat and drink are transmuted in us daily ways to make some money into spiritual substance, I believe in the miracle of the mass. […] this is the blood and the body of the logos." consumation of the host is necessary, body contact. Some say, it is not the host that is changed but the ways to make some money consumer of the host. Through contact with saliva, chewing, stomach acid. This is the transformation, the unification of the host with the consumer. The thelemic host changes the consumer – contrary to the roman catholic host. A roman catholic host is said to be transsubstantiated during ways to make some money the RC mass, a change of its invisible essence (for the entering of the real–presence of the christ) without a change in the appearance and chemical qualities of ways to make some money the thing. If a thing such as that was both transmutated and ways to make some money transsubstantiated to the body and blood, it would become actual bleeding meat from the transmutation. — the technical term for the bishopric in the context of ways to make some money the O.T.O. Phenomenon is wandering bishop or episcopi vagantes. This status is not defined by character qualities, not by education or theological position. These bishops are not elected by a canonical church, are not proposed as an ordain by a suffragan and ways to make some money not bound to a historical episcopal see or consecrated by ways to make some money an official bishop according to the canonical procedure. A real bishop is not a successor of a sole ways to make some money apostle because only the synod/college of bishops in toto is heir to the college ways to make some money of the apostles. Therefore: no wandering bishop has a real apostolic succession. There is no holy ghost in wandering–bishop–consecrations. The instrumentum consecrationis is of no apostolic value. Nevertheless, wandering bishops are collectors of papers and diplomas. In this context, reuss tried to make crowley’s ‘gnostic mass’ the "official religion for freemasons" in 1920. But nowhere in the constitution of the O.T.O. Was the office of O.H.O. Connected with leadership of any church. In his introduction to the ‘ecclesiae gnosticae catholicae canon missae’, (zuerich 1955) on page 4 the swiss hermann joseph metzger claimed the

Regarding crowley’s antidemocratic, racist and misanthropic writings, followers point out: "the reason […] aspects of thelema are omitted [in public discussion] indicates the actual problem with presenting thelema as a religion ways to make some money and attempting to get thelema sanctioned by the government or ways to make some money approved by the public: thelema is ultimately in contrast to and transgressive of normative ways to make some money society. Thelema rejects the morals and values of normative society and ways to make some money acts to transgress and violate these norms. From the inclusion of intoxicants in ritual, to the positive view of sexuality, which frequently is seen as promoting promiscuity, to the pro–authoritarian and nietzschian aspects of thelema, normative society has much to reject in thelema and conversely, thelema encourages its adherents to reject most aspects of normative ways to make some money society.".

"I can’t find this quote in any of his books but ways to make some money besides from having an antiquated view on the place of ways to make some money woman in society, both men and women should refrain from the sexual spasm ways to make some money (to avoid ejaculation is SECONDARY), it’s the orgasm which is to be avoided (the sperm is brute mercury, but what is more important is the subtle mercury = sexual energy and the saturated mercury = kundalini) and both man and women have the possibilities to benefit ways to make some money from this sexual magic. It’s also clear that when a spouse does not want ways to make some money to practice sexual magic and the other does, the one that doesn’t practice DOESN’T benefit at all of his partner who does practice." ***, email dated 18.4.2011.
