From A Magick Life: A Biography of Aleister Crowley

Although he avoided chapel services in college and remained a fierce critic of established Christianity, be it Anglicanism, Roman Catholicism, or the Plymouth Brethren, Crowley did not give up all thought of religion.

Hi Tonya,

Here's the link to my post:

Here's my Friday 56 entry:

Lose the negative self-talk. I'm referring to that little voice in your head that passes judgment on your every move. Whenever you catch yourself thinking, "I'll never get this report done" or "My house is a filthy wreck," stop yourself and redirect your thinking. Instead, replay the thought with a positive spin: "I will do my absolute best to meet this deadline" and "I love this house for all its wonderful memories." Forcing these thoughts might feel silly, but I promise you: It will help you feel more in control of your life, and it will build your self-respect and self-confidence. And, as we now know, that is integral to achieving your health and weight-loss goals!

"When Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, few people had the poor taste to ask what she had done, or even claimed to do, for the cause of peace."
