On Behalf of Brother Kelly
and the Newaeon Newsletter
by Soror S.O.
During the past few years
letters have reached this Centre asking, even demanding, "practical" material
to be published in The Newaeon Newsletter. Could they possibly want rituals?
In some cases. But the rituals and the practices have all been given
to us and carefully delineated by the Beast 666 himself. We have
all that is needed. Could anyone hope to do better than he?
Some have also written asking for explanations of those writings of 666.
In other words, in most cases, we are being asked to hand everything over
on a silver platter. This is neither how Our Father the Beast wished
it, nor is it good Thelemic training. The writings of 666 are difficult
to comprehend for two basic reasons: One, it was not an easy task
for one at such a high level to "write down" to us, and Two, Aleister wanted
us to strive towards the understanding of what was written, to study and
to search for the answers, and in the process of research to actually learn
far more than we had set out to learn. Furthermore, through searching
study certain qualities are developed in the student and he/she learns
to stand on his/her own two feet, firmly, as should any true Thelemite.
Brother Kelly willingly
corresponds, freely, with many people, and is more than happy to answer any
questions that he may be able to answer. However, he is dead set against
"parroting" others, repeating the unnecessary, and of making any student of
Thelema totally dependent upon his words. His attitude is Thelemically
As for being "practical":
has not The Newaeon Newsletter often given valuable advice on how Thelema,
the Magical Path and related subjects should be viewed, in the proper perspective,
in order that the proper balance be maintained? Has not the newsletter
revealed some of the mental and spiritual aberrations that can be met along
the Path, through The Sword of Horus and in other places, so that, perhaps,
these imbalances may be recognized and effectively avoided or dealt with?
Surely it is not thought that The Sword is merely a mean man's knife used
jealously to stab others in the back? And what of the messages in
the various poems? What of Liber QVPh? What of the "hidden" messages
of manifestation? Are so many so blind? Can it not be seen
that this publication, how others react to it and how its staff reacts
to others, is an example, a guideline, to Thelemic attitude, one of the
very things many have asked us to teach them?
My message, in behalf of
Brother Kelly and The Newaeon Newsletter, is this: The practical is here--if
you but have the eyes to see and if you are sincere and not a lazy pseudo-student
of Thelema. That which is earned in life is of far more value than
anything which is simply given. Be a Thelemite...not an "occultist".

thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Although Newaeon operations
continue, its publication is still in a Period of Silence and my G.M.R. goes
on....but you have not been forgotten and when Vol. IV of The Newaeon
Newsletter is published and distributed the Encyclicals will go out and
you will be notified. Has Newaeon ever let you down before?! As for the
cowardly and unthelemic things that have lately been said and written about
yours truly, G.M.Kelly, behind my back, as it were, by such as Mr. Motta,
Mr. McMurtry and Ms. McMurtry/Seckler, who did not even have the Thelemic
courtesy to face me with their charges by sending me a copies of them, as
Newaeon has always done, worry not. My attitude is one of extreme
amusement for I am beyond their reach, will long outlive them, and happily
file their lies away as fuel for future fires...what fun we will have when
this G.M.R. is done!
Hope this long Period of
Silence has been as profitable for you as it's been for us...and please
keep in touch! For now...Vale.
Love is the law, love under will.

The Great Magical Retirement referred to above has long ended and The Mt. Nebo
Hermitage is no more, but the printed newsletter yet remains in a Period of Silence.
Of course this web site continues, providing the same and new information and amusement
at no cost to you, while I continue to reorganize a life of over half a
