Does anyone know much about Thelemic practices, Aleister Crowley's teachings, and the Higher Guardian Angel?

In this book by Alan Chapman is this quote:
https://thebaptistshead.files.wordp...epsebook.pdf
quote:
You might be wondering why, if you can achieve the Great Work or enlightenment through other much simpler, less poetic systems of attainment, such as vipassana or Zen, you might want to consider attempting the Great Work the magical way. The answer is simple: the Holy Guardian Angel is the fastest, most efficient means of metaphysical development I have ever come across. Working with the angel means progress is no longer a question of conscious deliberation, and the angel is in the position
of knowing your self better than you do. Who better then than the angel in providing instruction?


That certainly sounds quite appealing, does it not? And yet, Crowley was an ego centric man. Can this "HGA" be bad for your soul? Can it be a demon in disguise? In order to evoke the HGA requires complete surrender to him... that puts me off a bit.

The claim of what the HGA is, is that he's your guardian angel that's been with your during your entire life. He is your true self. If that's the case, then there's nothing to fear, is there?

I've just listened a radio interview of a Finnish Marko Meretvuori(has social media), who has studied and practised Crowley's method for 15 years. When he was asked is HGA the Higher I, True Will, or what, he said that HGA is something that everyone has to find out them self, that it is something that can't be put in to words/consepts, and that is why also Crowleys explanations about it changed over time.
