Even more than that re Crowley. He was an Adept of the Golden Dawn
Society originally I believe, got real heavy into Tarot and other
divination tools, but took a turn toward the Blacker side of magic-
really heavy duty nasty stuff . At one point he claimed the number 666
as his own. Goodly part of all he wrote is simply massive ego- even
his Tarot book is written in the same kind of style as his Tao
opinion/translation.. I have avoided him for the most part- they vibes
from his stuff are just too unacceptable to me. No matter how brilliant
his mind may have been, the rest is too much. Ozzy is right indeed.

Healing the Earth begins with healing ourselves.
At the center of your being you have the answer;
You know who you are and you know what you want.
The privilege of a lifetime is to be yourself.
