Read this rare - never before published - essay by Charles Stansfeld Jones (aka Frater Achad) who was a devoted student of Thelema, an initiate of the magical order of the A.'. A.'., and one of the pioneer organizers of the Ordo Templi Orientis in British Columbia, Canada. Like his mentor and primary teacher - Aleister Crowley - Jones was a complex personality. Whether you love him or hate him, he unquestionably left a mark on Thelema from his many years of service and his unique contributions.
T Allen Greenfield has studied the letters and other unpublished archival materials of Frater Achad for some 20+ years. He is also in contact with Frater Achad's son - Tony Jones - who graciously consented to the publication of his father's essay. The book also includes 'reveries' from Greenfield, where he artfully weaves together a sort of mythos of many spiritual and magical paths and traditions. The forward by Bishop +Thomas Langley also frames the content of the book in a very helpful manner - encouraging those of divergent spiritual paths to step back for a moment and consider how their own traditions might share a similar source, or, at the very least, have a few things in common.
