Tearing Down The Veil Of Secrecy
"The unveiling of the company of heaven."
An examination of the second line in Chapter One of the Book of the Law opens an entirely new
avenue of study and reflection.
The first line in the book introduces the female and male components of creation, Nuit and Hadit.
In the implication of sexual union to bring about creation, it is natural that the second line should be a revealing, or "unveiling"
of the work of this creation.
We are thus introduced to "the company of heaven."
In attempting to explain the work in his book, The Law Is For All, Crowley perceived the "company
of heaven" as mankind "and its unveiling is the assertion of the independent godhead of every man and every woman."
But is it more than that? Was Aiwass, the mystery author of the book who dictated the words to Crowley
in Cairo, Egypt, really explaining a magickal tearing of a veil that has separated and blinded humans from the spiritual world
for thousands of years? Suppose that the "company of heaven" is a revealing of all living creatures, not only
on the Earth, but above and below?
Since Crowley penned this amazing book there has been a reoccurring phenomenon, namely the sighting
of unidentified lights and craft in the sky, that has made humans keenly aware of the possibility they are not alone.
As years passed, the sightings intensified and there are now stories of human abductions, cattle
mutilations, crop circles and appearances of impossible creatures. The stories have created a cult-like following of people
who believe aliens are at least circling our world.
Yet another phenomenon has been occurring as more and more people are separating themselves from
the restrictive and blinding confines of archaic world religious systems and exploring alternative spiritual pathways. An
offshoot of this has been the discovery by many that it is possible for the spirit to leave the human body and explore that
which lies beyond the veil.
What is being discovered is that there is life of all forms surrounding us. Some of these life forms
are friendly, some indifferent, and yet others appear to be working against the human experiment in this three-dimensional
Crowley as well as occultists like S. L. MacGregor Mathers,
Johann Wier and Collin de Plancy managed to raise, identify and even draw images of key demonic figures that have been known
as the 72 Spirits of the Goetia. These powerful entities, many of whom have actually been worshipped by humans in ancient
times, are said to command legions of spirit forces.
During a period when we were examining all 72 of these spirits, we had the distinct feeling, especially when examining the records, that this veil is indeed being torn asunder.
Slowly but surely, some humans are "awakening" to an awareness of what they are. And as our eyes
are opened, the link we have with the alien beings that created us has been getting more and more visible.
This, then, is my personal version of verse two. It has been a century since Crowley wrote the words.
The "unveiling of the company of heaven" is slowly being realized.
