[from http://home.earthlink.net/~charlesreese/HJPlainText/GovernmentOfMembership.txt ] Subject: Government of Membership in Hawk & Jackal Hawk & Jackal is entirely self-defined. It is a Thelemic Order formed on p rinciples given in the Holy Books of Thelema. Hawk & Jackal is an Inner Order not an Outer Order. Membership status is changeable at Will, and at the sole discretion of the member. No lists of members, other than patrons, are maintained though there are b odies in various places with regular activities. Noone has the right to admit or expel anyone, not even I Ebony Anpu the Fo under. A physical body is not necessary to be a member. A Being's rights are con tained in the following statements from Liber AL vel Legis: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law". It is also further defined by the sta tement "Thou has no right but to do thy Will, do that and no other shall s ay nay", and elucidated by other statements in that most Holy book. There are no dues or fees. However it is strongly suggested that someone wishing to be Initiated by one or another of the bodies of Hawk & Jackal be considerate of the time and effort needed to provide a place, and provi de the materials needed, to comply with your request for formal Initiation . I would strongly suggest a financial donation to those that will have go ne to considerable effort on your behalf. If you wish me to spend more time working on Hawk & Jackal material and le ss time working to support myself doing other things to provide for my bas ic necessities, you may avail yourself of the expedient of hiring me to wo rk for you in the production of materials. A $20 per month donation gives you the right to request that I do one hour of work specifically complying with your requests. In that regard I will keep a copy of your certificate on file and provide you with my home phone number and process your reques ts ahead of requests by those that are not my patrons. Should you fail to meet your payment I will remove your certificate from the file and comply with your requests as I would any other member that is not a patron. Sign this certificate and return it for my signature if you wish, after which I will return it to you and keep a copy on file. Either party may terminate the agreement at any time. Failure to be a patron does not effect your me mbership in Hawk & Jackal. No donations will be returned. It is not necessary to be a member to initiate a member or attend any even t. But as in any social interaction a person does not have a "right" to en ter any other person's house, or any place they have rented especially for some Hawk & Jackal event. With new moon Initiations and Esbats, since they involve sexual activity, the parties that are working that rite may control entry into the inner te mple. As it is said in Liber AL vel Legis "take your will and fill of love , when where and with whom ye will." Access to all material is open and none is held secret, you may share with whom you Will. Hierarchy is personal and obvious, Men of Earth are devoted and state that devotion, and Lovers are Lovers in the context of ritual, Hermits are masters of a Temple, no other party may define a grade for another, they may however control access to their own Temples as they Will.
