The Unique Godliness Of Every Soul
"Every man and every woman is a star.
Every number is infinite; there is no
Liber al vel Legis 1:3-4
When Thomas Jefferson and his friends penned the words to the Declaration of Independence, they
wrote: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable Rights . . . "
These words should still ring true in our hearts even today, as Americans find themselves submitting
to government suppression through "anti-terrorism" legislation designed to "protect" people from themselves. They should guide
us in our decision to let our government declare unprovoked wars against other nations.
Jefferson seemed to have a special understanding in the uniqueness of the human soul as he penned
these words of rebellion and revolution. The author of Liber Legis, better known as The Book of the Law, dictated to Aleister
Crowley about 150 years later by a mysterious figure identified only as Aiwass, shared that understanding.
The image is that we are all stars in an infinite heaven, we are all in motion and doing our perfect
will, yet never in collision. All is working like a smooth, well oiled machine.
Yet as we pass through life, attempting to live with and get along with our fellow man, we know
this is not a true description of the way things are. If we are stars, we find ourselves in constant collision. We fight with
our siblings, with our neighbors, with nearby communities, with adjoining states, and we go to war with other nations.
What is wrong?
We have forgotten our godliness. We have allowed ourselves to be blinded by a social structure that
teaches intolerance for people of other creeds, colors and customs. We are taught to hate those we do not understand. We are
pared off as early as childhood into religious belief systems that use fear to control our thoughts and provoke our actions.
And we have allowed materialism to become the driving force behind our actions.
With blinders like that attached to our heads it is small wonder that we are stars in constant collision.
We exist in a universe of chaos. And it never was supposed to be like this.
Aiwass assures us that "every number is infinite; there is no difference."
Crowley wrote that "Although each star has its own number, each number is equal and supreme. Every
man and every woman is not only a part of God, but the Ultimate God."
He turns to the counter verses in the Second Chapter of the Book of the Law, in which Hadit declares
"In the sphere I am everywhere the centre, and she, the circumference, is nowhere found." Hadit,
the energy, is speaking of Nuit, the space that comprises the Universe.
Thus, Crowley concluded, "The center is everywhere and the circumference nowhere." He wrote
that "the old definition of God takes a new meaning for us. Each one of us is the One God.
"Each man instinctively feels that he is the center of the cosmos, and philosophers have jeered
at his presumption. But it was he that was precisely right. . . Each simple elemental self is supreme. . . for man has veiled
himself too long from his own glory. . ."
Presuming that Aiwass is right, and that we are all part of the godhead. That every man and every
woman is a star of equal brilliance and importance. That the universe we see is uniquely the creation of each individual
star, but part of the whole when all stars are in harmony.
How then do we return to that state of perfect harmony? How can we humans get back to Eden?
For starters, we must dispose of all of the fear-based religious systems that separate us and generate
wars. We also must dispose of all monetary systems.
Giving up the false gods will be a good start.
Driving away the alien energies, the angelic spirits that created the veils, is mandatory.
Until we can do these things, we will continue to be slaves to forces we don't even know
