"...offering a perspective on the Law of Thelema is not about pleading, persuading, or getting people to make decisions. Promulgation, exegesis or commentaries, and even one-on-one discussions is all about saying something about the Law of Thelema."

Historical cultural context is important for anything.

This examination does not purport to remove any perceived obligation of the so-called "Short Comment" nor does it relieve any individual from affirming the writings of the Prophet as being preeminent in scriptural interpretation. However, given the implications of the "Short Comment," being able to think for one’s self and understanding good principles of exegesis is the first route to grasping the concepts within the Book of the Law—and, indeed, the rest of the Holy Books.

“There is none that shall be cast down or lifted up: all is ever as it was. Yet there are masked ones my servants; it may be that yonder beggar is a King.” I still believe the paradox of the beggar and the King is one of Thelema’s greatest moral, social, and political lessons.

We will have to see what we can do. So far, nothing has really come across that provides a solid translation plug-in or resource. But, if you know of something that works really well, please let us know!

"I would no more go into a biology class armed only with legal terms than I would approach exegesis merely with the vocabulary of geology. It is important that we understand the field in which we wish to play."

... any interpretative process should endeavor to be as consistent as possible, but we're talking about human beings utilizing human words to relay concepts about the human condition. Consistency isn't exactly a human strong point.

Friday's Follies: Here's a new word for most people: theopneustos. Of course, theos means God or Gods. The pneustos comes from pneó, or to blow, breathed. The term theopneustos is generally translated as "divinely inspired" or "breathed by God." The question of the day is this: does theopneustos apply to the Book of the Law? If so, how? If not, why?

Friday's Follies: If the Law of Thelema is supposed to support the idea of 'scientific illuminism,' then are we to limit any conclusion we make on any subject to only what is scientifically observable?

Introduction
                                   ------- ◇◇◇ -------    

:: Who We Are

HeartFlame Ministries is a Texas Nonprofit Corporation dedicated to the promulgation of the Law of Thelema. To that end, we are organized exclusively for charitable, religious, and educational purposes within the meaning of the Internal Revenue Service Code, Section 501(c)(3), and the Texas Tax Code, Section 11.18, and consist of the following:  
  • Advance the Thelemic religion by promoting and supporting small group ministry and related shared-ministry models in Thelemic organizations and groups through the development of new resources, networking, and training opportunities.

  • Performing educational research on the Thelemic religion to provide educational and theological materials for Thelemites, Thelemic organizations and groups, and the general public. 

  • Provide support, education, and resources for Thelemic professionals and students to better serve our religious community and the general public.

  • Organize charity functions, education, and operating models for public humanitarian works toward local disadvantaged populations as may be determined by observable need and available resources.

                                   ------- ◇◇◇ -------    

:: Our Purpose

Our purpose is to take seriously the dictates of the Book of the Law and to call all people to the Law of Thelema.

We want to be a ministry where:

  1. every individual is passionately, whole-heartedly, recklessly pursuing their will in accordance to the Law of Thelema; and,
  2. the seeking can connect with a life-changing community of Thelemites; and,
  3. anyone who seeks can have access to teaching that transforms lives; and,
  4. authentic people—individuals whose very lives prove the validity and power of the Law of Thelema—are actively discovering, developing and deploying their gifts and resources for the pursuit of the Great Work both individually and communally.
It is our desire to spread our passion for the Law of Thelema inside our greater community and to be able to clearly communicate that passion to others outside our community.
