Anyone know if there is an app for
Orienting ones self towards the Spiritual
East? Or how people here go about it?

Well I remember seeing something on Lashtal a couple years ago where such a gizmo was offered.  If you "Search" hard enough you might find it - or someone might be thoughtful enough to provide it for you again.  There was also a thread where I addressed where there was anything to back up why (apart from in Reguli) "Spiritual East" should be "the force emanating from Boleskine", what the nature of this force would be (e.g. maybe whether solar or terrestrial or something else), and where one would then turn to if one was at Boleskine (House) itself, but not surprisingly these questions were unfortunately never answered.  Would you happen to know, Francis?  And --- assuming that you do, that is --- why do you "believe" this to be so, yourself?

Yours without a compass,
Norma N Joy Conquest

Thanks for getting back to me, it is appreciated.
I'm currently reading ABRAHADABRA by Rodney Orpheus and on page 21 he talks about Boleskine being the Magical East."From Boleskine radiates a very important magical current."
"Think of it as a spring in the Earth from which the Thelemic current flows."
"It is the Thelemic Kiblah, the spiritual center of our work".

I’m currently reading ABRAHADABRA by Rodney Orpheus and on page 21 he talks about Boleskine being the Magical East.”From Boleskine radiates a very important magical current.”
“Think of it as a spring in the Earth from which the Thelemic current flows.”
“It is the Thelemic Kiblah, the spiritual center of our work”.

Hmm... "think of it".  Yes, I've thought of it!  But that doesn't mean to say go on to take it on board as gospel, the unadulterated truth. We are being asked to accept this unorthodox view of "Spiritual East" and adopt it into our (daily) practices on nothing more than a few sentences in Liber Reguli, Chapter 23 (wooo!) of Magick Without Tears (where A.C. says: "Remember that your 'East', your Kiblah, is Boleskine House..."), and a diary entry for October 9, 1916  (“O.T.O. Lodges, Profess-Houses etc. should always be oriented to Boleskine”), which is a rather tall order, even if it happens to be the case.  As it is, there is nowhere else in the entire Thelemic canon where Crowley explores the matter further or goes into it at greater depth.

The matter has been discussed on Lashtal before, for example at (here's hoping the links work!):
https://www.lashtal.com/forums/topic/Evening Workshop: Liber V vel Reguli @ Treadwell’s )
and https://www.lashtal.com/forums/topic/Is the Kiblah of Boleskine still relevant to Thelema?
but nothing conclusive has arisen from it and not much further information made available. But regardless of that, I'm glad you managed to get the links for what you wanted Francis --- Result!

N Joy
