Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

James A. Eshelman has been a writer and a teacher of occult and metaphysical subjects for over 25 years, originally in the field of astrology and then magick, mysticism, Qabalah, tarot occult psychology, and related Hermetic subjects as well. He was admitted to the A.'.A.'. as a Probationer in 1979, an to full initiation as a Neophyte in 1981. He is the author of the acclaimed book The Mystical & Magical System of the A.'.A.'. among other titles.

Mr. Eshelman is presently the Prolocutor of the the Temple of Thelema, which he co-founded in 1987 with Anna-Kria King and Phyllis Seckler. He is a former Grand Chief of the Fraternitas L.V.X. Occulta (Fraternity of the Hidden Light).

The A.'.A.'. is the one true and invisible Order which has operated under various names and guises throughout history to guide the spiritual evolution of humanity. The goals of the A.'.A.'. are those which have motivated spiritual exploration and religious inquiry throughout human history. Its methods are those of science; its aims are those of religion.

It is the Arcanum Arcanorum, and the Holy of Holies wherein the Sacred Ark rests inviolate. Every legitimate magical order, mystery school, religion, or other agency disseminating some portion of Wisdom or Light is or has been but an Outer Vehicle of this Inner Fellowship of Light. "All words are sacred and all prophets true; save only that they understand a little..." (Liber Legis, I:56).

This is the highest and purest meaning of A.'.A.'..

More commonly, however, we use the name A.'.A.'. to mean not only this Invisible and Eternal Order, but a particular outer structure, or terrestrial incarnation of the Interior School, which came into being, beginning in 1906 C.E., at the hands of two Adepts named Aleister Crowley and George Cecil Jones. This Order survives today through various authentic lineages which can be traced back to these two Adepts.

The Mystical & Magical System of The A.'.A.'. is available on Amazon at: http://goo.gl/CjMVs

Love is the law, love under will.
