In our articles, we discussed books Tupac read and decoded his lyrics; we show in this article the influence of the Tibetan Book of the Dead and how mysticism was present in his work.  Reincarnation is another topic that pops up in numerous Tupac songs.  Out of all of Tupac’s quotes “My Only Fear of Death is Coming Back Reincarnated” is used the most in his music and symbolized the most in Tupac’s life.  Reincarnation is a concept that a being’s soul can be reborn into a new realm or physical body.  It’s popular in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism; it can also be found in the works of Plato and Socrates.

The Tibetan Book of the Dead” is what more than likely influenced Tupac’s belief in “Only fear of death is comin’ back reincarnated” as it deals with life-after-death scenario and how we perceive this experience.  The line was first used by Evil Mind Gangstas on their 1993 song “Livin On The Edge” and also featured on the OG recording “Reincarnation” along with Hussein Fatal and other Outlawz members.  The quote gained mainstream status with the release of “Only Fear of Death” on the 1997 album “R U Still Down? (Remember Me)”.  The three Bardo realms of the afterlife are “Bardo of Death,” “Bardo of reality,” and, the “Bardo of rebirth.”

Reincarnation (OG)

My only fear of death is reincarnation
I use my last breath, to reach the whole nation
How can they call me murderer for my spoken words?
This composition be my prophecy I hope it’s heard

Tupac’s original recording of the song “Reincarnation” is not only a prophecy of his death but also a personal testament regarding reincarnation.

 

If My Enemies Love Their Kidz (OG)

My only fear of death, can you hear me, it’s comin’ back
Had enough of this bullshit world so none of that

A mellow instrumental accompanies Tupac’s warning for his enemies.

 

Under Pressure (Thug Life/1994)

Right before I die
I’ll be curseing tha law
Reincarnated bitch even worse than before
My four-four’s givin payback” 

Reincarnation is slightly mentioned on the 1994 album “Thug Life”.

 

Ambitionz Az A Ridah (All Eyez On Me/1996)

My murderous lyrics
Equipped with spirits of the Thugs before me” 

Tupac studied white magic and had an ability to utilized this into his lyrics.  The semantics of Tupac’s lyrics has a force behind it.  Sorcery can be summoned to incorporate souls of another realm.

(A Treatise on White Magic by Alice Bailey)

s-l300

But I’m back reincarnated, incarcerated
At the time I contemplate the way that God made it
Lace ’em with lyrics that’s legendary, musical mercenary

Tupac’s image and self-identity were reincarnated on the album “All Eyez On Me” as he entered the realm of mysticism.  At the time he was incarcerated at Clinton Correctional Facility he found a way to God’s destiny for him.

 

No More Pain (All Eyez On Me/1996)

Spit the secret to war, so cowards fear me
My only fear of death is reincarnation
Heart of a solider with a brain to teach your whole nation

319vaWLjiuL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

The secret to war and astral projection… this song that has roots in mysticism and is a homage to Method’s Man’s “Bring The Pain”.

 

Only Fear of Death (R U Still Down?/1997)

Hahaha, I ain’t scared to die
I ain’t scared to die
To my homies in Heaven: I ain’t scared to die
Do you wanna live forever? Are you scared to die?
Or will you scream when you fry?
I don’t fear death
My only fear of death is coming back, reincarnated

A whole song dedicated to the subject and an insight on Tupac’s mindstate towards the end of his life.

Ballad Of A Dead Soulja (Until The End of Time/2001)

“One day I’ll be the Don; until then, remain strong
My only fear of death is reincarnation
Bustin’ at my adversaries like a mental patient”  

Tupac once again states “My Only Fear of Death is Reincarnation.”

Makaveli The Mystic Part 2: (The War on Tupac & Hip-Hop)

The war on Hip-Hop and Tupac Shakur is nothing new; several theories and FBI connections have been established to prove the Government’s involvement in the disruption of urban America and Hip-Hop music.  Tupac shows a softer side with songs like “Brenda’s Got A Baby” and “Never Call You Bi**h Again.”  Tupac also released an onslaught of material aimed at politicians that he claimed didn’t comprehend the semantics regarding his usage of the word “Bitch” and the difference between Thug Life and living the life of a criminal willingly.

In 1992, Tupac’s album “2Pacalypse Now” was rising on the record charts and causing a stir in Washington DC.  After the shooting and death of a Texas State Trooper by Ronald Ray Howard; Tupac would become the target of a political witch hunt.  Ronald Ray Howard’s defense lawyers claimed that the song “Soulja’s Story” influenced their client’s behavior as Ronald was listening to the song when he was pulled over by the officer.  Vice President Quayle publicly condemned the album and urged Time Warner to remove the record from stores.  Time Warner sold its stake in Interscope Records back to original owners Jimmy Lovine and Ted Field.  Tupac retaliated on his next album.

A revolutionary of his own right, Tupac called out President Bush and Vice President Quayle on the 1993 underground album “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.*.*.S.” on songs such as “Peep Game.”

And Imma throw a change up
Quayle, like you, never brought my name up
Now my homies in the backstreets, the backstreets.

Tupac returned to the subject on a later album and this time included political activist C. Delores Tucker, President Clinton, and Presidental Candidate Bob Dole on his 1996 classic “How Do You Want It” from the “All Eyez On Me” two-disc masterpiece.  Bob Dole took donations from the same company “Time Warner” that was responsible for publishing Tupac’s music but regardless he continued to rage a personal crusade against Hip-Hop as a whole.

C. Delores Tucker, you’s a motherfu*ker
Instead of trying to help a ni**a you destroy a brother
Worse than the others; Bill Clinton, Mr. Bob Dole
You’re too old to understand the way the game’s told
You’re lame so I gotta hit you with the hot facts.

At the end of “Wonder Why They Call You Bitch” (from the same album) Tupac addresses C. Deloris Tucker head-on.  Delores Tucker became a household name from her public demonstrations against urban violence portrayed in rap music.

“Dear Ms. Delores Tucker, keep stressin’ me
Fuc*in’ with a motherfu*kin’ mind
I figured you wanted to know
You know, why we call them ho*s.bit*hes
And maybe this might help you understand”

C. Delores Tucker would later sue Tupac’s estate for “ruining her sex life” with the use of his lyrics.

Street Fame

Delores Tucker, don’t let your kids
Hear a nigga speak on gettin’ money

C. Deloris Tucker talks about Gangsta Rap

Politicians against Gangsta Rap

Tupac lives on throughout his music and the THUG LIFE movement.  His legacy has changed the landscape of hip-hop, politics and social issues forever.

Violent

In every jeep and every car, brothers stomp this
I’m Never Ignorant, Getting Goals Accomplished
The Underground Railroad on an uprise

Where my SOLDIERS?, where my soldiers at
When Bob Dole and Delores Tucker wanna know
Where my soldiers at, GO VOTE!

Makaveli The Mystic Part 1: (Symbolism of Tupac Shakur; Books he read in prison)

The aura that surrounds Tupac Shakur’s life and death grows stronger with each passing year.  New theories and old theories of him faking his death continue to be supported while 2017 marked his induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.  Tupac’s posthumously legacy shows no signs of slowing down.  Although much is known about his public life through videos, interviews, and music; his interest in the occult and the astral realm is a little-known fact of history.

Incarcerated from February 14, 1995, until October 12, 1995, Tupac engulfed himself into a literary retreat of the senses.  A list of the books he read at the Clinton Correctional Facility famously made it’s way around the internet in the early 2000’s.  We’ve researched nine books that led Tupac into the white light and influenced quotes such as “Only fear of death is comin’ back reincarnated” and “Let’s go inside my astral plane.”

BOOKS

index

“Initiation” by Elisabeth Haich was probably one of the first books Tupac read on the occult.  Initiation is a mystical-telling of Haich’s former lives, including her incarnation into the daughter of Pharaoh Athois.  It details how the future is relayed via consciousness as dreams; this is a beginning stage of controlling/altering your fate.  The book will open your eyes into the depths of reincarnation.

index11

Ponder on This” is a compilation of Alice Bailey’s teachings; it acts as an encyclopedia of mystical tools and prepares you for “Initiation,” a spiritual development that you enter upon birth.  Astral Projection is mentioned as a concept that is vital for Initiation; one must learn to see through the fog and illusion, stabilizing their etheric bodies with the vibrations on the plane.

ssss

The Destiny of the Nations” is another piece of Alice Bailey’s work.  World dominions are at an ever-changing realm; this and the fate of each nation relies on energy masses and consciousness of its people.  This book examines the inner-depths of social interaction.

9780853301332.MAIN_160_260_s_c1

Serving Humanity” is Alice Bailey’s concept within “soul contact” and the utilization of the personality on the physical plane of existence.  Telepathy, Illumination, and Control of Speech are a few of the topics covered in the literature.

9780853301165.MAIN_160_260_s_c1

Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle” is the last book of Alice Bailey’s that appears on the list.  The essence of mental energy and communication is the key dynamic to the book.  A “flow” of energy is discussed and correlates with connecting to the overall system of energy fields for the world.

manso

“The Meaning of Masonry”  by W.L. Wilmshurst describes the inner workings of Free Masonry and the symbolism that incorporates the ancient mysteries of Egypt.   The book opens in one passage with this line “The papers here collected are written solely for members of the Masonic Order.”

kab

Gershom Scholem’s book “Kabbalah” is considered one of the blueprints of Jewish mysticism.  The Torah and the hidden symbology within the text are interpreted and projected into a higher understanding of GOD.

sssww

Mysticism” written by Evelyn Underhill acts as an introduction into the manifestation of energy as it pertains to the mystic arts.  This would’ve been the centerpiece for Tupac in regards to magic.

The Tibetan Book of the Dead” is what more than likely influenced Tupac’s belief in “Only fear of death is comin’ back reincarnated” as it deals with life-after-death scenario and how we perceive this experience.  The line was first used by Evil Mind Gangstas on their 1993 song “Livin On The Edge” and also featured on the OG recording “Reincarnation” along with Hussein Fatal and other Outlawz members.  The quote gained mainstream status with the release of “Only Fear of Death” on the 1997 album “R U Still Down? (Remember Me)”.  The three Bardo realms of the afterlife are “Bardo of Death,” “Bardo of reality,” and, the “Bardo of rebirth.”  

Symbolism

The majority of the books listed are written by New Age writer Alice Bailey and were transmitted to her by the Tibetan Ascended Master Djwal Khul.  This is significant for many reasons.  Bailey’s work correlates along the line of the white magic (right-hand) path; most of her teachings deal with the evolution of karma and the final mastering of the astral plane.  To master or achieve a “higher” realm you need to have an understanding of the “lower” realms and when to embrace it and when to look beyond the vibrations that you’ll encounter. 

Alice Bailey’s teachings are on Theosophy (mystical and occult texts) and embrace a path to enlightenment.  As you can see from the list of books Tupac read, he had no literature on Aleister Crowley and the new age religion “Thelema.”  Thelema is based on “The Book of the Law,” the law is “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.  Love is the law, love under will.”  This focuses more on the individual spiritual path and the use of magick in different forms.

Spirituality captures the imagination of not only your inner-self but the self that surrounds you.  There exists techniques that many consider controversial or even witchcraft… the left-handed path & the right-handed path depending on usage.  Two examples of this would be Madame Blavatsky’s “The Secret Doctrine” as it holds a right-hand atmosphere to the readers.  The opposite of this would be Aleister Crowley’s “The Book of the Law” which deals with the aspect of the left-hand.  In reality, how you perform the white or black magic and for what use determines the Good or Evil concept.

The Right-Hand Path deals with concepts of the body, spirit & mind.  Karma is also present.  This would be associated with ‘finding yourself’ through meditation and white light.

The Left-Hand Path dives into the use of Satanic imagery, sex magic & other taboo methods of rituals.  Many musicians and artists have adapted to this path as it symbolizes and showcases the use of magic (in the open).

According to Alice Bailey: The White Magician has the motivation that will benefit the group he surrounds himself with/has contact with.  The Black Magician works alone, and if he works within a group, his/her purpose is shrouded with a selfish ego.  The White Magician works for the balance of the universe.  The Black Magician works for no one and represents no unity.  The Left-hand path will always assume supreme power on the physical and astral realms; this is because Black Magicians crave exposure within their rituals of magick.  The Right-hand path evolves, it does not believe in using magick for ‘selfish’ reasons as induced by the Left.

Papa Legba is a spirit in Haitian Vodou whose job is to act as a “channel” between the living and the dead.  In folklore, he’s presented as an old man with a cane.  Updated versions depict him as young and energetic.  The cane represents the connection to the fertility of the earth.  To salute Papa Legba, a follower will present three knocks to ask him to open the door of the unknown.  The colors he wears are red and black or white and black.  In Tupac’s music video “Made Ni**az” Papa Legba makes multiple appearances.  Below is a scene that symbolizes Papa Legba.

Red/White and Black are presented on his jacket.  Three knocks close the ceremony of the music video.

 

 

 

The same footage can be seen in the “Hit ‘Em Up” music video.

 

Also, the “I Wonder if Heaven Got A Ghetto” video was specifically designed by the director Lionel C. Martin to leave the door open to theories revolving around if Tupac was still alive.  Tupac arrives at RUKAHS, New Mexico on a helicopter where nuns take care of him.  There’s a scene where Tupac gets on a bus, and along the ride, different musicians and revolutionaries get on such as…  Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, Huey Newton, Martin Luther King, but who is the mysterious guy in the very back?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This looks identical to the mystic Grigori Rasputin.  He is widely known for the various assassination attempts on his life, most of these attempts all took place in a period of one night in December of 1916.  He was poisoned, shot, beaten, strangled and survived each encounter but finally, his conspirators tied him in a rug and tossed him into an icy river.  Rasputin broke out of the bondage and attempted to swim until he succumbed to the cold.

If you look hard enough, mysticism is a foundation of Tupac’s work.   And Tupac wasn’t the only Outlaw to make a song about astral projection.
