In recent times, many have opted to wear a thick rubber band on the arm and snap it as an alternative punishment. A bracelet that gives the wearer a sharp electric shock! Behold the Yoke upon the neck of the Oxen! Is it not thereby that the Field shall be ploughed?

Post reblogged from Thelema - with 5 notes. Every time that you slip up and do so you will give yourself a cut upon the forearm. Everytime you do so you will promptly give yourself a cut upon the forearm. I chose this one. For the Ox Mind - You will place a ring upon your finger.
While the ring is on you will maintain a completely different alternate persona. If you are a conservative, meat eating, gun rights activist then while wearing your ring you will become a social libertarian, vegan, strict gun control person and so forth. Everytime while under your persona you slip and think as your other self you will you guessed it suffer the punishment. This seems downright barbaric and weird to most people and I can completely understand that. A friend of mine recommended a rubber band around the wrist which you would snap instead, and if that works for you then do it.
I however wanted the whole deal so I went with the knife approach using my leg rather then the forearm due to my professional life. First, a rubber band may not be a suitable substitute. The pain of cutting oneself with a razor is minimal, but it leaves a lasting mark, a tally of your failures.
Also, the placement of the cuts upon the forearm is important because it makes the marks visible. Each time you see the marks you will be reminded and others that know you are practicing Jugorum will also see. It is the record of the failures and the visibility of that record that is the larger part of the cutting practice.
If one wants to avoid the self-injury portion of Jugorum, a permanent marker may be more effective than a rubber-band. The second point was an argument for using the razor.
Because sometimes a ritual will call for cutting and blood, a side benefit of the practice of Jugorum for some may be to learn not to fear blood-letting. It may prepare one mentally for other ritual work.
For my own part, I choose not to use the razor because of my own history with self-harm, among other reasons. If someone had no history of self-harm, then I might recommend the razor so as to break that taboo, but otherwise I would recommend a marker. Tagged: thelema response trigger warning.

So, I have a question about Liber Jugorum. I'm interested in the disciplines it recommends, but I'm skeptical about the actual technique. Namely, I've never been a big fan of cutting myself with a razor. Regardie advises a similiar discipline in I think it's "The Middle Pillar," but there's a footnote by the editor indicating that he later recanted and recommended a less severe form of self-castigation. I'm stuck in China right now and have no access to my books.
