74. There is a Secret in the name
of PASADENA, hidden and foamy,
just as the sun at midnight
seldom gives you a good tan.

I'd really like to better understand the reasoning for everyone being so vague about the contents of the book and/or it's takeaways.
Aleister Apparently I'm a very lucky person, because I have yet to read it! Until this thread I did not know that you were only supposed to read it once, not study it, throw it away, and not talk about it. That is so cool that it's as good as lentils and rice. On the other hand, I love the 'Book of Lies', a very nice post-Victorian era trip to somewhere on each page, well coded, and a "HowTo:Hide great descriptions of bodies of information in plain sight". Like a good movie viewed a few times instead of once.
23. For perfume mix meal & honey & thick leavings of red wine: then oil of Abramelin and olive oil, and afterward soften & smooth down with rich fresh blood.
24. The best blood is of the moon, monthly: then the fresh blood of a child, or dropping from the host of heaven: then of enemies; then of the priest or of the worshippers: last of some beast, no matter what.
25. This burn: of this make cakes & eat unto me. This hath also another use; let it be laid before me, and kept thick with perfumes of your orison: it shall become full of beetles as it were and creeping things sacred unto me.
26. These slay, naming your enemies; & they shall fall before you.
49. I am in a secret fourfold word, the blasphemy against all gods of men.
50. Curse them! Curse them! Curse them!
51. With my Hawk's head I peck at the eyes of Jesus as he hangs upon the cross.
52. I flap my wings in the face of Mohammed & blind him.
53. With my claws I tear out the flesh of the Indian and the Buddhist, Mongol and Din.
54. Bahlasti! Ompehda! I spit on your crapulous creeds.
55. Let Mary inviolate be torn upon wheels: for her sake let all chaste women be utterly despised among you!

I'll read it at some point, that's what I meant, it's something to look forward to. Like popcorn. If you should only read it once then maybe it's better to come to it with background and experiences. But yes, I'll read it, not just yet though. I have to put in many more hours of guitar practice before that (and by practice I mean making noises with the strings). Anyway, good discussions, I'll bounce out of this thread now and herd cats.
