Try having a look around Thelemapedia. In particular the sections on Thelema, Agape, True Will, and the Holy Guardian Angel.

I was kinda looking for just a tad bit less compressed maybe

In my opinion, Crowley's religious worldview is that each person is fundamentally unique and divine, and should seek to realize this as fully as possible. This is what "Every Man and Every Woman is a Star" means.

"Do What Thou Wilt..." etc. is the "commandment" of Thelema;

"Love is the Law..." etc. is the method of Thelema.

The best statement of Thelemic ethics is given in "Liber OZ" -

This is my favorite on-line biography of Crowley.

A biography is only tangentially related to a "religious worldview" I realize, but there is a lot of good and funny commentary here.

Liber Oz - The Book of the Goat or The Book of Strength!
Drop the Hierophant in the middle and guess who's name pops up?

this is really key.. the hiding is a revealing, every revealing (insight) begins another concealing..

the process of uncovering (magical study, raising via serpent power etc), and also seeing (appreciating) the revealing in concealing (existence unfolding) is the point and the practice (essentially the same as Kabbalah)
