In Thelema there is the concept of your “True Will”. When it is said, “Do what thou wilt,” it is not, as some believe, an injunction to do whatever you like. It’s a command to discover your True Will, and then to carry it out in the world. Your True Will is what you’re here […]
Are you stressed? I’m guessing you probably have some stress in some part of your life, as almost everyone does.
