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

Recently I have been reading M&MSA.'.A.'.. And without going into too much detail. It seems that by completing the work of the COT Course-One curriculum (or that of any similar or even related system), if actually worked, the individual would have most all of the practical skills and even a large portion of the memorization complete to fairly "easilly" pass through Zealator. Of course considering time constraints and all; not that it seems anything is too "easy" in the A.'.A.'., though it does have a very simple and elegant structure.

I cannot give this any personal credence as I am not even a Probationer, however it just seems that more than just preparatory work is set up in the COT curriculum.

I would like to hear more ideas on this, I am just not sure of the exact question that I am asking right now.

HMMM!?

Health and Happiness to all

Love is the law, love under will.

There would certianly be a lot of the basics laid in - that was part of Phyllis' actual intent. But there would still be a lot of the objective stuff not done. For example, C.O.T. Course I includes memorization of Chapter 1 of Liber Legis. but doesn't include memorization of anything from Liber LXV or Liber VII. There is a great deal in the 1=10 curriculum not included in Course I at all - see http://ordoaa.org/grade1.htm

The bigger difference I see is that, on taking the Oath of Probationer, an internal process is initiated which starts a karma acceleration consistent with the oath and what it means in the context of the life of the individual who took it. That makes the experience quite distinctive IMO.

it just seems that more than just preparatory work is set up in the COT curriculum.

I agree with you on that whole-heartedly.

As I tell our technical support team members at work: Getting the question right is 70% of the job! :)

There is plenty of work to still be done. Lets face it, the COT work is not difficult, esp. if you have two years of college under your belt. What is difficult is the self discipline to get it finished. I don't want to say anything that perhaps I am not supposed to, so I will just say that the necessity for self discipline doesn't stop. From this point on, I suspect it will never stop.
I move far and wide, but I am always is the same state.
