About Thelema Abbey: An illustrated to Guide the Second Life Temple Complex

Update 29th October 2012

Unfortunately, WordPress decided to remove all the content from this blog, with the exception of this simple “About” page. I assume that this is due to the erotic content of the blog. Thus I will be deleting this blog and hosting the WordPress blog on my own server on http://luciferfilms.tv/wordpress/index.html

Unfortunately I will be AFK (away from the keyboard) for a few days, so I expect that it will not be up and running again for a week or so.

The following text and images are self censored as Word Press would probably just remove the page otherwise.

Love and Light

Thelema Abbey is a virtual reality sim in the world of Second Life.

This is a verbal and pictorial adventure diary. These are the adventures of the human soul and of human love. These are the adventures of the gods and goddeses who live up in Heaven, far above the wars and the sufferings of mortal men.

In the world of the gods and goddess of the virtual world, there is no sickness nor death nor suffering, and Love is the highest and most sacred law, and there are only other gods and goddesses to love; there are no invisible sky gods.

Many are they who break the law and are cast out of heaven. Narrow is the path to heaven, where reside the gods and goddesses of love, and few are they who find it..

Second Life is not a game, just as love is not a game.

When the mind changes, the world will change. Revolutions begin first in the mind. The final and ultimate revolution in the world must be a revolution of love. When love rules the world, earth shall become heaven.

“Love is the law; Love under will.

There is no god but man(and woman)”

Venus Wardark (Lucifer), March 2012

______

Thelema Abbey is spread over 15 levels and is a Temple dedicated to sacred sex; you are free to roam, set your home here, and use the Temple as you will. Thelema Abbey is not a commercial site; nothing is bought or sold in the various levels of the sim; the Temple is open to all adults in SL. The Temple levels have undergone various improvements in March 2012. This is mostly changes to the verious animation sets in all the inner temples, particularly in the Baphomet (BDSM) level (level 9).
___________

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Venus Wardark (a/k/a Babalon). I am sometimes Venus (female) and sometimes Lucifer (male). We are both and SL and RL couple from London, UK. We are the same in both worlds.

My partner (Lucifer) and I do exist in the world of SL voice and Skype video chat; we also frequent numerous discussion groups throughout the Internet; we are a RL Pagan couple; we share avatars (we have 6 AV’s) and any confusion is made clear to those who are voice enabled; having numerous alts (alternative avatars) is simply the way that we play the “game” of SL; however it is no more a game than love in the real world is a game.

________

Thelema, BDSM and Sex Magic.

The purpose of this sim is simply to exist as a Temple of sacred sexuality, for the transformation of the soul through sex magick and the exploration of eroticism.

Members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and shemale community are welcome here, and all forms of erotic exploration are to be encouraged. I would encourage to explore different sexual lifestyles and opposite gender AV’s in SL.

__________

The Thelema Abbey sim also incorporates much of what was once the Venus Temple, which we had to move here to an “adult” zone due to a change of policy by Linden Labs

__________

The 11 Spheres (Spehira).

Thelema Abbey is a “vertical” multi level sim; most of the sim will be “above” and “below” whatever level you are currently on. There are 11 main levels accessible by Teleporter; some of these levels have other vertical sub-levels within them. You cannot see all these levels with your camera controls; they are 100’s and 1000’s of feet up in the sky.

We are currently transforming and improving many levels and themes are constantly chaning, however the levels are based on the 11 areas of the original Thelema Abbey sim which were as follows:

1: Heaven (Kether: Crown): Pillar of Unity (Pluto).
2: Horus Temple. (Chokmah: Wisdom): Pillar of Masculinity (Saturn).
3: Isis Temple: (Binah: Understanding): Pillar of Femininity (Neptune).
4: Set Temple. (Hesed: Mercy / Compassion): Pillar of Masculinity (Jupiter).
5: Queen’s Chamber: (Gebura: Justice / Discipline / Force): Pillar of Femininity (Mars).
6: Middle Chamber: (Tipareth: Heart / Beauty / Love): Pillar of Unity (Sun).
7: King’s Chamber: (Netzach: Victory): Pillar of Masculinity (Venus).
8: Aiwass Temple. (Hod: Splendour): Pillar of Femininity (Mercury).
9: Tower: (Yesod: Foundation): Pillar of Unity (Moon).
10: Twin Pillars: (Malcuth: Kingdom): Pillar of Unity (Earth).
11: Daath (Hidden Knowledge).

The names of these levels change frequently on the Teleporters but the themes are more or less the same.

It is not so much what you to “see” here in the world of virtual reality; the 11 levels in SL and RL are experiences to be passed through.

__________

A New Heaven and a New Earth.

The entrance to the New Heaven and New Earth is guarded by an angel with a flaming sword; this angel in real life is not an “avatar” but a psychological barrier to those who cannot abandon the sins of monogamy, exclusive heterosexuality and the tyranny and the slave morality of organised religion.

_________

The Invocation of the Holy Guardian Angel (HGA)

The HGA invocation is a serious undertaking and it is not an academic understanding, but an experience. This really has to be done in real life; the VR (Virtual Reality) sim here is primarly for the exploration of eroticism and for personal interaction, networking, comunication, discussion etc. Articles on the HGA litter the Internet and “Google” provides an adequate means of further research. However one may invoke (personify) many angelic archetypes in Second Life

____________

The Book of Thoth and the Tree of Life.

The best written guidebook to the Tree and the paths between the spheres is Aleister Crowley’s “Book of Thoth;” this is both a written work, and a system to be “used” to guide the will.

The Book of Thoth is a system of divination to be used in conjunction with sex magick, regular shamanic psychoactive useage and necromancy, it is not an academic manuscript which can merely be “learned” or memorised by “reading.”

A summary of the Book of Thoth can be found on:
http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/crowley/libro_thoth.htm#top

This should be taken merely as an introduction to the use of the system. Although authored by Crowley, the above text is different to the comprehensive written work which can be purchased from Amazon or most esoteric bookshops. This should be used in conjunction with the Book of Thoth divination system which is also widely available. See for example: http://www.rahoorkhuit.net/library/thoth/ (Brief summary and online readings).

A brief introduction to BDSM on:

Second Life BDSM:

______________

Monogamy and Polyamory in Tantra and BDSM.

The purpose of a Thelemic Priest or Priestess is not to enslave the body and soul of anyone; it is entirely the opposite; it is to free all slaves. Using individuals as your personal possession is a violation of the Law and the sin of monogamy, which is one of the most prominent sins of restriction. If you wear a collar, and you wish to explore submission, I would suggest that you set yourself as the owner of your collar and set your collar to “open access.” Doing so will open your experience in SL to a wide variety of BDSM RP without becoming anyone’s personal property. I would also suggest that you create both “dominant” and “submissive” avatars so that you may have a more balanced view and understake both experiences. Domination and Submission are perfectly natural erotic roles which are played out though “bondage” and RLV useage in Sl; however “slavery” and exclusive possession of a person’s body and soul is entirely contrary to the the universal desire for erotic freedom.

______________

Polyamory (literally, “many loves / lovers”)

We were designed to live our lives surrounded by love and to have many lovers and many erotic experiences in the world of our billions of brothers and sisters. Monogamy and religious morality as defined by the myriads of laws of the world’s religions which restrict sexual freedom constitute simply what Nietzsche referred to as “slave” morality and are violations of the Law and “sins of restriction.”

The following quotation by Osho adequately unpacks the meanings of the terms “slave morality” and “sins of restriction.”

___________

“Sex is the most powerful instinct in man. The politician and the priest have understood from the very beginning that sex is the most driving energy in man. It has to be curtailed, it has to be cut. If man is allowed total Freedom in sex, then there will be no possibility to dominate him. To make a slave out of him will be impossible.

Have you not seen it being done? When you want a bull to be yoked to a cart, what do you do? You castrate him, you destroy his sex energy. And have you seen the difference between a bull and an ox? What a difference! An ox is a poor phenomenon, a slave. A bull is a beauty; a bull is a glorious pheonomenon, a great splendor. See a bull walking, how he walks like an emperor! And see an ox pulling a cart.

The same has been done to man. The sex instinct has been curtailed, cut, crippled. Man does not exist as the bull now, he exists like the ox, and each man is pulling a thousand and one carts. Look and you will find behind you a thousand and one carts, and you are yoked to them.

Why can’t you yoke a bull? The bull is too powerful. If he sees a cow passing by, he will throw both you and the cart, and he will move to the cow! He will not bother a bit about who you are, and he will not listen. It will be impossible to control the bull. Sex energy is life energy; it is uncontrollable. And the politician and the priest are not interested in you, they are interested in channeling your energy into other directions. So there is a certain Mechanism behind it–it has to be understood.

Sex repression, tabooing sex, is the very foundation of human slavery. Man cannot be free unless sex is free. Man cannot be really free unless his sex energy is allowed natural growth.

These are the five tricks through which man has been turned into a slave, into an ugly phenomenon, a cripple.

The first is:
Keep man as weak as possible if you want to dominate him. If the priest wants to dominate you or the politician wants to dominate you, you have to be kept as weak as possible. And the best way to keep a man weak is not to give love total freedom. Love is nourishment…”

“…Second:
Keep man as ignorant and deluded as possible so that he can easily be deceived…”

“…The third secret:
Keep man as frightened as possible. And the sure way is not to allow him love, because love destroys fear–’love casteth out fear.’ When you are not in love you become more interested in security, in safety. When you are in love you are more interested in adventure, in exploration….”

“…The Fourth:
Keep man as miserable as possible–because a miserable man is confused, a miserable man has no self-worth, a miserable man is self-condemnatory, a miserable man feels that he must have done something wrong. A miserable man has no grounding–you can push him from here and there, he can be turned into driftwood very easily. And a miserable man is always ready to be commanded, to be ordered, to be disciplined, because he knows ’On my own I am simply miserable. Maybe someody else can discipline my life.’ He is a ready victim.”

“And the fifth:
Keep men as alienated from each other as possible, so that they cannot band together for some purpose of which the priest and the politician may not approve. Keep people separate from each other. Don’t allow them too much intimacy. When people are separate, lonely, alienated from each other, they cannot band together. And there are a thousand and one tricks to keep them apart.

For example, if you are holding the hand of a man–you are a man and you are holding the hand of a man and walking down the road, singing–you will feel guilty because people will start looking at you. Are you gay, homosexual or something? Two men are not allowed to be happy together. They are condemned as homosexuals. Fear arises. If your friend comes and takes your hand in his hand, you look around: ’Is somebody looking or not?’ And you are just in a hurry to drop the hand…”

-Osho

“On the Threshold of the Gods
The night sky beckons with familiarity
Yet is speaks with a voice of old
In a tone that is but forgotten

This is an age of darkness
Not the darkness of the Mother
But the darkness of despair
The time has come to reawaken

Harken, O Spirits
For it is Me who calls
Come forth to my waiting
My arms are extended, to welcome you home

It is I, whose voice has been forgotten
Who calls you forth
For I love you, I love you
Come, I am waiting

And with my hands upon your face
I shall kiss your forehead
And you will remember
The glory that we shared

For it is I, the one who loves you
The one whom you have longed for
Who comes into your dreams
And leaves you wakened–hungry

I call to thee, my servants
To those who dare to come to me
I beckon to your fire
I lust for your desire

To those who can remember
The days we shared together
Before it was torn asunder
By those who came to conquer

I have been long in waiting
For those who longed to remember
But never dared to see
For fear of retribution

For they have buried me in their shadows
The shadows of their cross and star
They stole from me my power
They stole from you my pride

Murderous, they strike at me still
In the heart of every woman
And the soul of every man
The time is now at hand

Join with me, my children
Feel me open your heart
It is time to be free again
It is time to be realized”

A brief introduction to Tantra can be found by copying and pasting the links below into your browser:

Simply stated, Tantra is a philosophy which considers sexual union to be the most sacred act.

Erotic intimacy between lovers is extended to hours and even days; it is not simply about penetrative sex, but about prolonged erotic intimacy and the union of human Souls.

12th Aethyr (Crowley):

__________

“This is the Mystery of Babylon, the Mother of Abominations, and this is the mystery of her adulteries, for she hath yielded up herself to everything that liveth, and hath become a partaker in its mystery. And because she hath made her self the servant of each, therefore is she become the mistress of all. Not as yet canst thou comprehend her glory.
Beautiful art thou, O Babylon, and desirable, for thou hast given thyself to everything that liveth, and thy weakness hath subdued their strength. For in that union thou didst understand. Therefore art thou called Understanding, O Babylon, Lady of the Night! ”

Blasphemy:

“Only by taking on the persona of Christ can the magus (or magician) use the [power of Christ] with maximum effect in commanding [the elements].This is a poorly understood secret of magic, but absolutely vital: the magician in him or herself is a fallible human being, and can perform no more than the works of a human, but when he or she takes on the identity of a god, the magician is rendered to perform the works of a god. ”
The Tetragrammaton by Donald Tyson

_______________

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

“Thou hast no right but to do thy will. Do that, and no
other shall say nay.”

“Every man and every woman is a star.”

There is no god but man.

1. Man has the right to live by his own law—to live in the way that he wills to do:to work as he will:to play as he will:to rest as he will:to die when and how he will.
2. Man has the right to eat what he will:to drink what he will:to dwell where he will:to move as he will on the face of the earth.
3. Man has the right to think what he will:to speak what he will:to write what he will:to draw, paint, carve, etch, mould, build as he will:to dress as he will.
4. Man has the right to love as he will:—”take your fill and will of love as ye will,when, where, and with whom ye will.”
5. Man has the right to kill those who would thwart these rights.

“Love is the law, love under will.”
