The Aeon of Horus

The Aeon of Horus

With the writing/receiving of the Book of the Law, Crowley announced the beginning of the age of Horus. A new aeon was proclaimed. But what exactly does this mean for us on a personal level?

First it means the old aeon is past, the Aeon of Osiris, the formula of the slain and resurrected god. We no longer have to follow that path for spiritual redemption and advancement. A new path was forged, one like Hoor-par-kraat we only need to "grow up" and take what is rightfully ours as Horus. In short we must take responsibility for our own growth, we can only rely upon ourselves. Not a guru. Not god/s. Not a group or church.

To be a Thelemite, to follow Thelema, means you must take the responsibility of your own path and growth. Ultimately this is a terrifying leap, because with that responsibility comes the acceptance for all your actions and inactions, as well as the possible consequence and results. You can no longer blame the world for your misfortunes. The devil didn't make you do it. It wasn't that God didn't answer your prayers. Your teacher or group didn't lie to you, you were just too stupid or lazy to discover the truth for yourself. So you lied to yourself. The reason you didn't get that promotion is not because your boss hates you. You yourself didn't make it happen. You let yourself down, not anyone or anything else. Success is your proof as well as the lack of success.
