UPDATE XI: New LOGOS! Entry and LOGOS! Entries to Date

I’ve decided that new LOGOS! entries, posts on my blog LOGOS! (naturally), which have almost completely been reblogs or external references (transcripts of those references or re-published material) to essays I’ve written, will now appear here in or alongside updates.

Most recently, I recorded a video and uploaded it to YouTube: this video features me reading an essay (“There’s Nothing Special About Meditation“) I’d written and had published in Thelemic Union , as well as re-published in LOGOS!. The essay is entitled “There’s Nothing Special About Meditation,” the re-published essay (as LOGOS! entry) is entitled “LOGOS IV: ‘There’s Nothing Special About Meditation’ (Article Repost),” and the most recent LOGOS! entry (the one in question, and the post featuring the video I mentioned) is titled “LOGOS XII: « “There’s Nothing Special About Meditation” » (Essay-to-Video).” The actual video itself is titled “« “There’s Nothing Special About Meditation” » (2020; essay-to-video) ||| Zen, zazen, Thelema.”

Here’s the video embedded for easier viewing:

In addition to updating this site with new LOGOS! entries, I’d also like to keep a rolling tab on the previous entries on that blog as well, featuring a list of links to them with each LOGOS!-related update. So, below you will find a list of all the posts in LOGOS! so far, from newest to oldest (2021-2018):

UPDATE X: “The Multiplicity of Thelemas”

This (“The Multiplicity of Thelemas“), published by Thelemic Union, is a recent essay by yours truly.

It covers the notion that Thelema as a system may potentially be as diverse as the number of people who practice or uphold it.

It also flies against needless dogmatism in general.

Enjoy.

UPDATE IX: “Anarchist, Thelemite, Odd Fellow…”

I just had an essay of mine (“Anarchist, Thelemite, Odd Fellow…”) published in the Odd Fellows blog Heart in Hand, courtesy of the wonderful Ainslie Heilich. This essay will also soon be featured on my blog LOGOS!.

The article goes over my person struggle coming to grips with my experience being simultaneously an anarchist, Thelemite, and Odd Fellow.

Please enjoy.

UPDATE VI: “Learning the Joy of Existence in Thelema”

I am happy to report that Thelemic Union has published my essay “Learning the Joy of Existence” (site founder and manager IAO131 renamed it “Learning the Joy of Existence in Thelema,” presumably to make it appear more relevant) on their site.

This essay covers the notion that existence is inherently joyous from a Thelemic perspective, and how to view it as such by engaging in the trances that Crowley discusses in his short book Little Essays Toward Truth.

Feel free to check it out.
