DOING YOUR WILL, by Jack Parsons - An Audio Reading


Who was Jack Parsons?

John “Jack” Whiteside Parsons, was a brilliant pioneer in rocket science, and an equally brilliant magickal practitioner. A member of the OTO – Ordo Templi Orientis, a magickal and religious order led by Aleister Crowley, Jack explored the hidden depths of the aether to exert his Will and bring about his vision to take mankind to the stars. In the process, he became devoted to the goddess BABALON, and sought to incarnate her into flesh through the Babalon Working. He found his true elemental companion in Marjorie Cameron through this working. Jack’s writings show his dedication to Freedom, Will, and liberation from dogma and Patriarchy. He died in 1952, but left a legacy that inspires and enflames the hearts and minds of many today.
