There are a lot of organizations that declare adherence to Thelema. Due to the character of the philosophy/faith/ideology/___, interpretations of the corpus are wide-ranging. Does Thelema want consolidation of interpretation? In that case, who decides? The most important group (OTO)? The one most concordant with Crowley’s teachings (which is that?) The one most aligned with the spirit of the New Aeon? Is it a bunch determination? Is a Thelemite merely somebody who calls him/herself one? (Observe that in BotL it’s written: “Who calls us Thelemites will do no unsuitable…” — by no means does it say WE name OURSELVES Thelemites)
Crowley writes in Soldier & Hunchback:
>I’m not so silly as to assume that my doctrine can ever acquire the ear of the world. I anticipate that ten centuries therefore the “nominal Crowleians” can be as pestilent and quite a few a physique because the “nominal Christians” are to-day; for (at current) I’ve been capable of devise no mechanism for excluding them. Somewhat, maybe, ought to I search to seek out them a distinct segment within the shrine, simply as Hinduism supplies alike for these able to the Upanishads and people whose intelligence hardly reaches to the Tantras. In brief, one should abandon the fact of faith for a sham, in order that the faith could also be common sufficient for these few who’re able to its actuality to nestle to its breast, and nurse their nature on its starry milk. However we anticipate!
Who’re the “nominal Crowleians”? What does it actually imply to be a Thelemite?

I not too long ago was given a replica of Nema’s Maat Magick and am actually resonating with lots of it. Having learn by the Principle part, and doing a little bit of analysis on its place in Thelemic historical past, I’ve a primary understanding of it and am searching for people experiences from working inside the present.
Does anybody follow strictly inside the Maatian present, or is it generally labored as a double present alongside Horus? Are there any chaos magicians right here that make the most of the Maat present, and in that case to what extent? I come from background in GD/Aurum Solis, in addition to some indigenous shamanic traditions, and was questioning how this work will truthful alongside that sort of background. Additionally, is there a subreddit Maat Magick?
I intend on doing the practices to seek out this all out for myself, however I all the time take pleasure in listening to others’ experiences. Thanks!
