THE 8 & 90 RULES OF ART

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

These rules were gleaned from the verses of Liber AL vel Legis. They are presented in a corresponding order with those verses as they appear in the Holy Book that they correspond with. It seems this is the only authority from which such 'rules' should be derived. Note also how they call one to action with proactive suggestions for conduct. In contrast, the 'Ten Commandments' of the old aeon are restrictive.

1.
Take your fill of love.
Love is the fulfillment of the extent of your nature.

2.
Know that the ecstasy of Nuit is within you.
This is Hadit.
