Discovery of Truth.

Force and Fire is not metaphorical. In Prophetes Veritas Venit.

Sit still; stop thinking; shut up; get out!

Originally four sentences by AC in 8 Lectures On Yoga, but by being free with the stops, transformed into one.

Or in my own  words: Equilibreate the sulking lizard, silence the chattering monkey, keep going up.

Thelema = The discovery of the meaning and motivational purpose behind one's existence.

Where, oh wherever can our late lamented Los "8=3" be?  He used to be invariably summoned to appearance right away by statements such as this!

Making peace with the Will of the universe. 

"Seek me only! Then the joys of my love will redeem ye from all pain."

"There is a splendour in my name hidden and glorious, as the sun of midnight is ever the son."

The World is Thelema and Ennoia.

The conception, delivery and return of Wisdom's acquaintance born from the refinement of Self across the expanse of infinite eternal dissolution.

For any trog who lacks the cultural literacy to get djedi's post:

Though it seems to me that Mr. Tex is mostly expressing anti-Isis sentiments, in terms of aeonics.

This Trog gets confused by multiple, double negatives. What is dj.'. giving up ... no more?

Djedi will not "bump"  (a '70s funk dance involving bumping one's body parts on the corresponding parts of one's partner's body in rhythmic fashion; possible sexual innuendo alert) in the Old Aeon any more. We used to "do the bump" at high school dances in the early '70s.

The original Joe Tex song, "Ain't Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman)", is about how he does not want to "bump" with another "big fat woman", after one "bumped [him] on the floor" at the disco. Thus my remark about aeonics.

DJ.'. is going to NOT get involved in Osirian complexities?

I think that is a fair reading of what is meant.

That's it? Avoidance of anything olden? The Nationalist Chinese did that. They banned acupuncture and martial arts. All that olden stuff got stuffed.

Mao brought it back.

"THE CRY OF THE THIRTIETH OR INMOST AIRE OR ÆTHYR WHICH IS CALLED TEX"

An amusing coincidence.

There comes a time when every initiate must burn his books. All that's out there is what I've already got in here.

That's true enough. But it's only a metaphor. The first time around (for me), it was a community library. It burned down/up. I did not perform ignition. But I guess that counts.

The second time (35 years later), it was my own collection. I sold it on eBay. No fires involved. But I had to count the money, so I guess that one counts, too.

Most importantly their own notebooks! 

 

"Seek me only! Then the joys of my love will redeem ye from all pain."

"There is a splendour in my name hidden and glorious, as the sun of midnight is ever the son."
