O.T.O. Pandemic Response

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

I’m glad to see our local body masters and officers keeping themselves well-informed, and taking responsible and prudent actions in response to the current COVID-19 outbreak.

Information on best practices is now being widely circulated. As the outbreak progresses, the advice will inevitably evolve; so everyone please do your best to stay up-to-date. I would like to specifically ask that you refrain from traveling, for the time being, to local bodies outside your local Valley, to help flatten the curve.

As I’ve already mentioned elsewhere, this is going to be a challenging time for our local bodies, financially, due to event cancellations. I’d like to suggest that local bodies consider continuing a regular schedule of meetings and classes via video conferencing. In addition to helping maintain revenue, doing so will help keep the community involved, and, hopefully, elevate members’ spirits.

Finally, for those of you who are self-isolating, I’d like to humbly suggest that this is a great opportunity to explore aspects of magical practice for which you have not previously had sufficient time.

Love is the law, love under will.

  1. The Mormons have a very advantageous world-view when it comes to natural disasters and supply chain disruptions.

    My LDS friend, bishop of his local body, tells me they’re encouraged to keep 3 months of food and water at their homes. I guess it comes with the territory of being an apolyptic end times cult.

    James Wasserman has expressed similar survivalist : prepper sentiments in some of his works from the 90s and 00s.

    Being a numerically fringe movement, it’s much more important that we be prepared and practice healthy lifestyle habits than other, more widespread sects.

    If 100 Evangelicals or 100 Jehovah Witnesses perished from an outbreak, it would put much less of a dent in their numbers then if 100 OTO Thelemites succumbed.

    Stay safe everyone, and heed the advice given in OP.
