If it feels good…?

Aleister Crowley was an artist, novelist, and occultist who founded a new religion he called Thelema. He saw himself as a prophet who would guide humanity into an age of self-realization. Even the Beatles were numbered amongst his fans. The guiding rule of his religion was: ‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law’ or, put more simply, ‘If it feels good, do it’. The Sixties took that principle to heart and many people today still do. But is ‘feeling good’ enough of a guiding principle for life? Many of us look back and realise what disasters that philosophy created for us. We need something more permanent and dependable as our guide for life, and there’s none better than that ancient wisdom of the Bible that says of God: ‘Your Word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.’
