Those, who surrounded Crowley...
I know, that my question may seem a little bit silly and strange, but this question came to my brain last night and I decided to ask about it here. Well... we all know that lots of people surrounded Crowley in his life and I just wanted to ask everyone about the following thing...whom of those, who surrounded Crowley do u respect the most and why? Who's ur favourite personage from the Life Story of AC? Mary
Interesting question. No doubt with my answer: Lord Tredegar by a long way. Too little has been published about this extraordinary poet, aristocrat and occultist but my research has left me absolutely gobsmacked by the man declared by Crowley to be 'Adept of Adepts' and by certain European occult circles as "The High Priest of the Black Mass'.
When all the information on Evan Tredegar is eventually published I feel certain that his name will become quite a prominent one in occult circles.
Then again I am biased. 😉
Hi Maria, 😀
For me it would have to be Alan Bennett. He was instrumental in Crowley's spiritual development and from what I can gather Crowley always held him in high regard.
A true brother and a special man indeed, always few and far between. 😉
It should be pretty obvious but...
The young chela and the aged guru-and even as Crowley was making notes in his diary that essentially said the young KG was a bore (and then sending him off on another errand), I can only imagine the unearthly fires blazing quietly in the furnace of his mind. The seeds planted from their time together and AC's training of Grant in Magick would later spring into a vast and alien garden-land of color, possibility and vision that I think AC would have been slack-jawed to behold.
But really, there is a LOT to admire around so many who crossed paths with the Beast. Regardie, Neuburg, Leah Hirsig...all stars whose orbit may been viewed in retrospect as shadowed by AC yet Universes unto themselves, in which AC played his part as they embraced the totality of a human life striving for the Highest.
