The Pilgrimage

Traveling to sacred sites in search of theological confirmation can bring on a great anticipation of expected authenticity. To the spiritual traveler, picture taking is never quite enough. The place must be more than just visited, it must be experienced. An explorer who feels the urge to know a sacred truth more deeply becomes more than just a traveler. By virtue of their longing and commitment to make the journey and by the desire to take in that sacred knowledge, they become a pilgrim. So it was for nineteen O.T.O. pilgrims, by going to Egypt for April 8th, 9th, and 10th of 2004, to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the writing of the The Book of the Law, and our new Aeon. For Brother Vere and myself, we wanted to discover the environment in which Aleister Crowley found himself at that time; to take our sacred Book of the Law and read it in the country of its birth, and to witness for ourselves the Stele of Revealing from which Rose and Aleister drew inspiration.
