5.0 out of 5 stars True Philosophical Genius At Work, 6 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: 777 And Other Qabalistic Writings Of Aleister Crowley, Including Gemetria & Sepher Sephiroth (Paperback)
I have been looking for something to explain the way I have felt about life for many, many years now, I have been led down many 'empty' roads and up unil recently I felt truly blinkered by reality and the neccessary means to explain exactly what is happening all around us. I am not a ceremonial magician but reading Crowley's work is such an interesting avenue of thought and makes more sense than anything I have ever read before, he has been called a drug fiend, an antichrist and the wickedest man on earth but I believe he was a seeker of the ultimate truth and anyone who is interested in reading about him should take into consideration that this man went to places where so many others would never fear to tread and he went there with such an amazing in depth knowledge and brought back his findings for anyone and everyone to read - that in itself deserves respect for anyone who dares to tread the path of possible insanity for the goal of obtaining higher knowledge is a true hero - occultism isnt for everyone (yet) but Crowley obviously tried within his lifes work to expose the secrets (which is all occultism is anyway - secret knowledge) of the ancients and release the powers that were for song long held by the few, he obviously does not and cannot hold the key for everyone as true enlightenment is such a personal journey but if anyone is looking then I believe certain parts of Crowley's work are a guide map for the soul - well worth reading anyway even if you arent into this kind of stuff.
