Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
All O.T.O. members in good standing are invited to join us for fraternity, communion and fun at NOTOCON XII during the weekend of August 2-4, 2019 in the Valley of Cleveland, Ohio.
The brothers, sisters and siblings of Black Sun Lodge in the valley of Cleveland, Ohio, Golden Thread Camp in the valley of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Sword & Serpent Oasis in the valley of Dayton, Ohio welcome you all to join us at The Westin Cleveland Downtown for the twelfth biennial presentation of NOTOCON.
This year our theme is “Fear Not At All,” a partial quote of verse 17 of the third chapter of The Book of the Law. These are some of the most powerful words in our most holy book, and this theme was chosen, in part, because fear is a constant theme in our society. Fear of violence. Fear of economic calamity. Fear of tyranny. Fear of war. Fear of censure. The concept of fear is so intricately weaved into our existence that it dominates the headlines, and tempers how we react to the world - and to other humans - more and more with each passing day. However, fear often prevents us from standing up and fighting the forces of superstition, tyranny and oppression that often prevent others from doing their will with the same freedom. If we are advocates of freedom, we must fight for it, together.
As is succinctly stated in Liber Librae, “Fear is failure, and the forerunner of failure; and courage is the beginning of virtue.” Fear is a natural reaction to danger, both real and imagined. In the face of all of the potential dangers presented to us each day, how do we, as Thelemites, find the courage to connect with the strength we need to fight fear before it leads us to failure? How do we help others to do the same? A productive analysis of these questions is the goal of this conference.
