Is Thelema a religion?

Post by Jastiv »

When I first got interested in Thelema, I thought of it as a religion. I was hoping to replace Christianity with it. Now that I am doing my true will, I don't care. I still use some rituals from Thelema from time to time and I still apply some of the philosophy, but I don't really care about it anymore the same way I once did. I have found better methods for my practice than some old rituals Crowley wrote up. I've also channeled a better tarot deck.

I consider Thelema to be a new model of the world. It contains religion for those that are drawn to religion, but in a different form than the dualistic devotional systems that most of us are familiar with.
A better de3ck than the Thoth? I'd love to see it.

Crowley calls Thelema “the mark of the mind untrained to take its own processes as valid for all men, and its own judgement for absolute truth”.
