Godspeed, Bill Heidrick
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
My old friend and mentor William Emmet Heidrick has died. You’ll be seeing a lot of people posting their memories of Bill. I’m going to leave it to others to attempt to list all of his contributions, and I wish them luck. It’s impossible to overstate the magnitude of his service to the development of the modern O.T.O. and the world community of Thelemites, not just in his Treasury and administrative roles, but also as a scholar and archivist, and as a senior member who was always willing to engage in friendly correspondence with…basically anyone. O.T.O. would be a very different organization without his influence, and I honestly doubt that I’d be a member of it. He was one of the nicest, funniest, and most idealistic (and stubborn) people I have ever met.
Thank you for all you gave us, Bill. I’ll miss you. May you be granted the accomplishment of your True Will.
Love is the Law, love under will.
