{PHOTOBLAST} Do What Thou Wilt . . . [ 11.15.13 / Vintage Photographic Inspiration]

EOF Photoblast- Do What Thou Wilt - The Truth is in the Dirt on the Ground (1940s Snapshot)

+ “Do What Thou Wilt”+

Famous lines spoken by this century’s supreme occultist and libertarian muse, Aleister Crowley. It expresses the very nature of living which is to indulge in one’s senses, and even become one with one’s vices to create a total engagement with oneself that is far apart from self criticism, judgement, or nagging conflict.

It’s a pervasively positive outlook on life, really; one that begs you to be free. The most unique thing you can be, really, is yourself, and no God or society should hold that against you. It’s your right.

It is a philosophy embraced by millions around the world, and a magic realist way of living that has influenced countless art forms in the last century; most especially music, with Crowley being a inspiration to The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, and countless numbers of heavy metal rock groups.

It’s a doctrine as old as time itself, really, and with the re-release of Crowley’s Original Wax Recordings by Mr. Suit we felt it to be the perfect inspiration for a little vintage photographic inspiration- {PHOTOBLAST}, as we like to call it here, at The Eye of Faith.

After all, it’s been a long while since we’ve featured one of our timeless collages of vintage musings on the site, and just thought- you know what, you guys are worth it!!

So, please, whatever you do- ENJOY!

And, always remember

“Do What Thou Wilt”,

whatever you do.

    Crowley does know how to make a statement that everyone can adopt. The only thing is when one is raising children, you cannot self-indulge so much without hurting the ones you love the most. Then a wedge forms and that utopian ‘freedom’ to say and do whatever you want, no longer applies. Then precious memories stop, and an empty void stands, to remind you about the consequences of every word spoken.

      Yes, it is always good to take in consideration those you love most if you don’t intend to harm one’s feelings.
