The Transcendant Force of Liber Al
1. Everything is an illusion.
2. The Gross must pass through fire.
3. The ultimate sparks of the intimate fire.
4. The lofty chosen ones in the highest.
"Abrogate are all rituals, all ordeals, all words and signs. Ra-Hoor-Khuit hath taken his seat in the East at the Equinox of the Gods; and let Asar be with Isa, who also are one. But they are not of me. Let Asar be the adorant, Isa the sufferer; Hoor in his secret name and splendour is the Lord initiating. There is a word to say about the Hierophantic task. Behold! there are three ordeals in one, and it may be given in three ways. The gross must pass through fire; let the fine be tried in intellect, and the lofty chosen ones in the highest. Thus ye have star and star, system and system; let not one know well the other! There are four gates to one palace; the floor of that palace is of silver and gold; lapis lazuli and jasper are there; and all rare scents; jasmine and rose, and the emblems of death. Let him enter in turn or at once the four gates; let him stand on the floor of the palace. Will he not sink? Amn. Ho! warrior, if thy servant sink? But there are means and means. Be goodly therefore: dress ye all in fine apparel; eat rich foods and drink sweet wines and wines that foam! Also, take your fill and will of love as ye will, when, where and with whom ye will! But always unto me. If this be not aright; if ye confound the space-marks, saying: They are one; or saying, They are many; if the ritual be not ever unto me: then expect the direful judgments of Ra Hoor Khuit! This shall regenerate the world, the little world my sister, my heart and my tongue, unto whom I send this kiss. Also, o scribe and prophet, though thou be of the princes, it shall not assuage thee nor absolve thee. But ecstasy be thine and joy of earth: ever To me! To me! Change not as much as the style of a letter; for behold! thou, o prophet, shalt not behold all these mysteries hidden therein. The child of thy bowels, he shall behold them. Expect him not from the East, nor from the West; for from no expected house cometh that child. Aum! All words are sacred and all prophets true; save only that they understand a little; solve the first half of the equation, leave the second unattacked. But thou hast all in the clear light, and some, though not all, in the dark. Invoke me under my stars! Love is the law, love under will." Liber Al vel Legis
With the O.O.O. the transcendental nature, can open the horizons, for the aspirant.
But one shouldn't rush in where fools dare not tread. Some people fall to pieces when the gross masks that they wear fall off. They are tossed between paranoia and reflection of the key insights mirrored in others. Ultimately The Ceremony of Light is a planetary initiation. We accept anyone who asks into initiation.
But those with shame and slavery are ignorant to this potential. It is best if initiation is followed by rest, repose and meditation, if possible for 36 hours. If not, remember to see through the veil, as our first truth suggest: "Everything is an illusion" because this advice may be potent upon the first initiation. I can't say for you, but cleaning up my karma, past, has been the priority, before going forth with the mystical/ magickal work. As Israeli Regardie suggests, people ought to get some Psychotherapy before going into magick work, myself I did alchemical hypnotherapy and counseling, working mainly on my inner child and feelings of abandonment and rejection.
One has to build up their power before an initiation will really work. If life is blah, blah, blah, and the person is indifferent and they are taking an initiation to energize their life, it probably won't work, and worse, things might get really bad, depressing and they might have to face why they've let their life get this way, before any breakthrough is made. Initiation and magick isn't for pumping up one's motivation and vitality. It isn't for making life better. One has to have a commitment for change and transformation. Ritual and initiation is not for everyone. You have been forewarned! A part of you dies during initiation, and many times friends and loved ones resent someone changing and growing. Do you have a supportive environment for such a step? Consider this thoroughly!
With the suggested reading lists, I don't expect you to read each one during the transition from each grade. Be reasonable, choose intuitively what calls to you. And remember to balance reading, intellectual activities with entertainment, exercise, and physical practices, too.
It is best if one uses one's own spirit guides, dream shields and sacred tools for their own initiation.
There are no grades anymore.
"The word of the Law is THELEMA. Who calls us Thelemites will do no wrong, if he look but close into the word. For there are therein Three Grades, the Hermit, and the Lover, and the man of Earth. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. The word of Sin is Restriction." Liber Al vel Legis
Here is an overview of our system, remember we only recognize 3 grades, as the Book of the Law states. These others are gateways, portals, and used as a road map into higher consciousness. If you think you suddenly have transcended human existence and are divine, after your first try, we suggest you at least go through the system, so you can make sure you are divine, and not deluded. Humans have a tendency to throw out the baby with the bath water.
We follow Frater Achad's Revised New Aeon English Qabala. Frater Achad, Aleister Crowley's recognized Magickal Child, is the one who wrote Liber 31, the Key to Liber Vel Legis. Crowley was most impressed to the point of renaming Liber Vel Legis to Liber Al vel Legis to reflect this change. 31 + 31 + 31 = 93. And 31 related to the Fool Aleph and Lamed, Balance, and the magickal formula of Lashtal. It wasn't until after the Temple of Thelema disaster in Sicily, and the pestering of Norman Mudd trying to interpret the book differently than Aleister, did Crowley write the little comment at the end of the Book of the Law (most people think it was written the same day as the Book of the Law).
"Behold! the rituals of the old time are black. Let the evil ones be cast away; let the good ones be purged by the prophet! Then shall this Knowledge go aright. I am the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star. I am Life, and the giver of Life, yet therefore is the knowledge of me the knowledge of death." Liber Al vel Legis

What follows is something we can't even speculate upon. It is not a grade or a gateway. It is called Ordeal X and can happen at any time, including birth. It is only between the aspirant and the True Will of the Silver Star that exists in the Planetary Consciousness of the Brotherhood of White Light, the Illuminati and is related to Ipsissimus. It is beyond the duality of ego, and is a place of divine exhaltation. They say that there is only one Ipsissimus born to an Aeon, so this is a rare area, for those worthy and able.

Create your own law, that is aligned with Thelema Consciousness
Here is mine:
"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law" Aleister Crowley
The Law of Bethalma
All war must cease. Aggression, murder, rape, pillage must be outlawed in one's own mind first, before it will cease in the Planetary Consciousness areana.
Any crime against man, where blood is shed must become vile, corrupt, and purged. Only in rare cases of self-defence is this permissible, if there is no other alternative to halt the attacker. "Harm no one" This includes yourself, first and foremost.
Beth, the daughter of Isis.
Beth, the Omega.
Beth, the rest of Nu
Beth, the vessel.
Beth the shaft of light receiving all blessed and cursed names of RA.
Be revelaed, that O Man-RA uttered all his names to Isis.
He named his lovers, his shames, all his disguises, from the Alpha...beginning of his potent powers...Neter...his overflowing aggressions. And in swallowing Osirus phallus...denied Isis and Osirus their birthright to populate the New Aeon, new universe...from the old...Amen-RA
All light must be shed. Step into the Clear Light. As Isis recieved...Beth consumates and gives birth to honor, virtue, strength, courage. The old God-- O Man-RA must shed his diabolical dialetical absurdities that masqerade as good and evil. For what is a God to do, if his true will above the law, if he creates demons from his insincerities in his actions, and then denies his creation their Freedom, Liberty, Happiness and Love?
What does a man gain, to do his will and take another man's life for no reason? When that man may return as a hawk or vulture and poke out the eyes of the magician turned adulterer to life's whims, in the next life/moment?
All war must end now. For it will take centuries for revenge and lots cast incarnation to incarnation to bring just and violent whims to rest. Dharma and liberation can only occur when one embraces one's True Will, and chooses to walk the path of the Great Work. Understanding impermanence and transcending sorrow, and realizing joy.
Prepare for forgiveness. Receive the Law of Bethalma. She is not the end of the Universe. She is not. But she could be. She shall forever be probable in the Mind of Man.
