Musings of a Thelemite
Alchemy Press, 2003 M03 22 - 164 pages
Although there are a few books on Thelema in print, they are mostly by Crowley himself. Some have said it is time for a contemporary to write on Thelema. To those, Da'Neos has answered. For him, the story did not end in 1947, and he represents the forefront of the new Thelemic movement. Da'Neos is that first brave soul who dares write where others keep silent. He is anything but timid or apologetic. Although he looks at Thelema in light of the 21st century, he stays true to the original ideas of Crowley . Da'Neos writes about how he came to write this book, in spiritual terms. He describes how he came to dedicate himself to a spiritual life, and the various systems of belief that he examined and lived through before coming to Thelema. It is a story of becoming, including the ramifications for holding certain ideas. He is the first Thelemic author to fully write about the Three Aeons, a subject that has been left in pitiful shape for many years. Da'Neos examines the current of spiritual development that has advanced through history, and how this spiritual current has been materialized through exoteric belief systems. Da'Neos describes what "conversation with the Holy Guardian Angel" is truly like. Even Crowley himself only hints at it. He describes, in a gripping narrative, of how he came to find his True Self, and the results of that finding. This is only a small sampling of the many areas Da'Neos covers. He goes on to write in detail on Thelemic ritual, the entire development of the Kabbala, examinations of the true force behind Christianity, and much more.
