In Greek numerology, ninety-three is the value of the word “thelema,” or “will.” This is the word that has been adopted to represent the teachings of Aleister Crowley, as typified by the expression, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.” Although this seems to mean “do whatever you want,” in actuality it means find out what your true will is, your God-oriented purpose in life, and then do only those things that will lead to achieving it. The second part of this philosophy is “Love is the law, love under will.” Also in Greek numerology, 93 is the valuation of the word “Agapé,” selfless love.
People who follow this path, Thelemites, will often greet or part by saying or writing “93” as shorthand to remind them of the central words of their philosophy. The spiritual energy that drives this path is often called the “93 Current.”
