so just as i'm reading the "rite of the milk of the stars" and thinking snide and non-believing thoughts, there's a crash and the earth shakes...

(i hope the epicentre was somewhere near here, or that could have been quite a biggie; no smoke or brimstone, thankfully, and the power lines have stayed up)

Nice link!

The revelation of the once-secret Hermetic symbols and philosophies that are the foundation of the Golden Dawn's system has long since occurred, yet we still see Lodges swearing their Aspirants to absolute secrecy with mighty oaths of death and destruction, if they dare to reveal to the uninitiated the "secret knowledge" which the uninitiated could buy cheaply at a used book store. We see no reason to follow this defunct and even harmful approach.

About time too...

I wonder what they use to compile the source?

I'm late to the game, but thanks to homunculus for an interesting link. Of course many G.'. D.'. purists would denounce this group's Thelemic overtones, but it's nice to see a group freely acknowledging that much of the arcana has already been unveiled (and readily available on the web to boot).
