Sacred Order A∴A∴
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law

A∴A∴ is the one truly holy and invisible Order which has operated under various names and guises throughout history to guide the spiritual evolution of humanity. The goals of the A.'.A.'. have inspired spiritual exploration and inquiry throughout human history. Its methods are those of science and empirical knowledge; its aims are those of religion (meaning permanent spiritual or transpersonal attainments) - all for the betterment of all sentient beings.

Every known magical order, mystery school, religion, or other structure sharing portions of Wisdom or Light is or has been but an Outer Vehicle of this Inner Fellowship of Light. Highly realized individuals, Masters of Wisdom and completely liberated souls, are guiding this Inner and Secret Fellowship.

Demystification of the A.'.A.'.

In the present writing, however, the label A.'.A.'. is used in reference to not that Eternal Order, but to outer structure of the Order which started in 1906 e.v. by two Adepts: Aleister Crowley and George Cecil Jones.

This outer structure of the Order survives today through several groups.

While there is only one true Eternal A∴A∴ Order, there is no "preferred" or "the correct" and "one true" link to the Order. How could there be?

There are sincere seekers, serious adepts and dedicated aspirants working their way up along the guidelines of this external Order in all of the groups listed below. If I single out one (i.e. mine) as the only true one, I indirectly deny all the others.

True seekers are therefore invited to not confuse the Sempiternal A∴A∴ Order with the impermanent structures and groups listed below.

Temporal A∴A∴ Order as installed by Crowley and Jones is only a system or a structure which can and indeed does contribute to development of a sincere aspirant, but it is still only a system, much like systems that predate it by thousands of years (i.e. Advaita Vedanta, Sri Vidya Tantra, Theravada and Vajrayana, to name a few).

No one can grant you the link to the Eternal A∴A∴ Order, no matter what, for true inspiration only comes from within. Only you and you alone can do that through realizing and actualizing your inner potential.

"Any organization, group, or person claiming a connection to the A.'.A.'. can only connect you to the external and temporal A.'.A.'. Connecting with the sempiternal A.'.A.'. is a process of self initiation and no one in this plane can give that to you. Any group claiming to be the A.'.A.'., regardless of how legitimate and how effective it is, can only provide you with the training and resources of the external, temporal A.'.A.'. Initiation is an internal process between you and the true A.'.A.'.."
- Ricardo F.

Putting politics and childish rivalry among the major players aside, and keeping the above words in mind, true seekers are therefore invited to research the groups that are offering training and support along the lines of the Master Therion's A∴A∴ Order (links are in random order, new pages open up):

In addition to the links above, the web site run by like-minded Fraters, Astrum Argenteum, is a collaborative effort in service to the A∴ A∴ – their goal is to provide resources and historical information in regard to the One Order. Visit the web site here >> (a new page opens up)

Having shared all of the notions above, I do not comment on the validity of the groups nor do I accept any students. Good luck!
