PROGRAM, PRE-PROGRAM, REPROGRAM
The moment of ultimate self-embarrassment is when you die. That is when you wake up. And realize that everything in that universe is upside down and backwards (see Atu XII, Thoth Deck). That everything is on record and you are completely exposed. Your star-spark (soul) has returned to that Great Star that hangs over the City of the Pyramids in the form of a wafer, chip, snow-flake and is decoded by Big Molly the Shredder. Your program (immediate past life) is compared with your pre-program (Will, Fate, karma, the life you were supposed to have lived) and you are judged (weighing the Feather scene in the text of Ani). Your energy will then be Re-Programmed or used for other purposes.
Some of you will recall my color slide lecture comparing Enochian angels to computer circuits and tanma(n)tras. Tanma(n)tras? The force that maintains each item in the universe (see Mookerjee-Khanna THE TANTRIC WAY pg 98-99) you could think of it as a universe of electrical particles held in the “main-frame” of a computer. It also explains why in Kirilian photography the image of an amputated limb is still visible. So far as the Maintainer is concerned, the pattern is still there.
As to how many “Stars” there are in Heaven? Revelations 7:4 and 14:1 say 144,000. Some religions take this seriously. Thelemites do not. Any Yogin knows that 144,000 (divided by) 2 = the 72,000 cranial nerves in your body recording in your eyes (irisology) and ear lobes, and exiting energy through your finger tips and feet – especially the toes (which is why your Yoga instructor tells you to take your socks off – and not to wear pantyhose to class). All that is telling you is that you must connect those 72,000 nerves with the 72,000 psychic channels Your Angel is holding down to you. Check your KABBALAH DENUDATA re that marvelous oily beard of Macropropus. Or, as Aleister Crowley parodies it (paraphrased from memory):
Macropropus has a great beard
O, with what a marvelous oil
It is smeared.
Macroprosopus has nothing on me
I’ve got a beard just as greasy
Being dead is a bummer because, although you may know everything and see everything, living in Eternity as you do, there is nothing you can do about it because you can’t move. You are dead. (which is one reason I did an LBR for Karl Germer when we got to his house at West Point.) This is the world of Change. Where the past can be rewritten (changing Reality).
Or as Omar wrote:
Would but some winged Angel
ere to late
Arrest the yet unfolded
Roll of Fate,
And make the stern Recorder
Enregister, or quite
This is why the Initiate path is so important. It gives you a chance to compare your program with your Pre-Program. That way you can Reprogram yourself ahead of time. Which is why the Tibetans work thru their Bardos, the Egyptians rehearsed the Halls of the Dead (Liber D). One way of remembering this is to repeat the mantrum:
PROGRAM, PRE-PROGRAM, RE-PROGRAM
As you compare your current Life with what you are supposed to be doing and adjust as necessary. This is known as “finding your true Will.”
Next: more technical equations.
I wish to thank Frater Orpheus for making this page possible.
