2Pac Euphanasia PART III: (Mysticism in Tupac’s Lyrics/Videos DECODED)

EXIT 9 Investigations: Series 1 – 2Pac Euphanasia PART III: (Mysticism in Tupac’s Lyrics/Videos Decoded)

We have to label all the symbolism Tupac left behind as a form of mysticism.  Niccolò Machiavelli’sThe Prince” first appeared in 1513 under the Latin title: “De Principatibus (About Principalities)” and gained mainstream traction in 1532 — five years after the death of Machiavelli.  Tupac Shakur entered the state of Makaveli on September 13, 1996 (Friday the 13th), at the age of twenty-five.

Tupac wasn’t only a musician, actor, poet and revolutionary leader; mystic could be attributed to Tupac in the sense of his ability to captivate those around him.  In the song “Bomb First” Tupac raps “Allow me to introduce first: Makaveli the Don. Hysterical, spiritual lyrics like The Holy Qur’an”.  This is the first significant sign of mysticism on the Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory album.

A mystic is described by definition:

involving or characterized by esoteric, otherworldly, or symbolic practices or content, as certain religious ceremonies and art; spiritually significant; ethereal.

There are two different forms you can take.   Left-hand (occultist) and The Right-hand (mystics).

THEPATHS

As examined in our “Tupac: Mystic books he read in prison” Tupac held a stance for the Right-hand path.  A mystic spreads the message of love and evolution of mankind.  Traits of a mystic are ESP (Prophetic visions), knowledge of semantics, having an empathic soul…etc.

Tupac experienced the path to mysticism and established all five levels of initiation.

  • The Awakening

  • Purgation

  • Illumination

  • The Dark Night of The Soul

  • The Union with The Other

The number 7 shows up in Tupac videos and of course his music.  Synchronicity and it’s relationship to numbers have been documented and Anamnesis connects to Tupac’s obsession into reincarnation.

Anamnesis

an·am·ne·sis

ˌanəmˈnēsis/

noun

recollection, in particular.

the remembering of things from a supposed previous existence (often used with reference to Platonic philosophy).

Do you often recall vague instances of energy?  Energy levels are at the highest they’ve been in recollection.  Finding yourself takes time and with the RIGHT STEPS, it’ll be a journey worth traveling.  Below is a story of my connection to synchronization.

2014

“It was fate or synchronization.  I fell into a trance… my writing style changed, personalities clashed.  My first poem written in this stage was DOOR EXIT.

Automatic writing consisted of restless nights & research of obscure documents.  I stumbled across Fernando Pessoa & an article his Heteronym had written.  I felt a belonging to this Heteronym & synchronization meshed.  This formed from the practical method of Astral Time Travel; I classify it under the terminology Time Machine Poetry.

I arrived at the conclusion that Fernando Pessoa had to be a Gemini.  I was correct.  Born on the June of the 13th.  I’m also a Gemini, born on the 19th.  This also relates to my connection to another Gemini… Tupac Shakur.  He has been my main influence since age 13, maintaining a constant force upon my writings & research.”

A few of the number “7” connections to Tupac.

Makaveli the Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.  Tupac was shot on September 7th; and survived on the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and”died” the FRIDAY THE 13th. 

There’s 7 shots at the begining of the song “Bomb First” on the “Makaveli” album.

Tupac’s album “All Eyes on Me” was released on Feb.13, 1996. Tupac “died” on Sept.13, 1996. = 7 months

Tupac officially died at 4:03 PM. = 7

He “died” at the age of 25 years. = 7

There’s the “I Ain’t Mad At Cha” music video that came out after his death and shows him getting killed in a similar fashion that took place in Las Vegas, this was the last time “2Pac” was used in a music video.  The video shows a scene where Tupac gets shot; 7 shots are fired.

Tupac is then put inside an ambulance.  There’s a girl in the background with a Chicago Cubs hoody on, before the scene switches, the actor playing Tupac’s friend moves in front of the girl’s vision, the letters are blurred and now look like LV — the abbreviation for Las Vegas (location of his real death).

LV

And here is Tupac alongside Kadafi. Notice the UNLV (University of Las Vegas) shirt that Pac & Kadafi are wearing, and the Chicago White Sox white.

There’s a light skinned woman in the ambulance, on the sleeve of her shirt it says “Guardian” is this Javana Thomas from the No Grapes Theory?  Is this Tupac’s guardian angel?

IMG_6404

There’s a scene, once the ambulance door closes — five sound effects, along with two “black-out” scenes are featured to make a sequence of seven.  This symbolizes Tupac making the transition from mortal to astral.  We have listed the timestamps of each video still.

Tupac then enters heaven and encounters 15 different ‘angels’.

2PACSSS

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 (Shakur backwards), 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.  Tupac had mystical influences in his music.

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.  There’s an additional knock at the very end of the video. 

The same scene can be viewed in the “Hit ‘Em Up” video.

Inserted into the Hit Em Up production is a crow that makes itself known; crows symbolize magic and manipulation.  They often appear as omens for someone who will soon meet death.

Tupac died on Friday the 13th.  EDI is wearing a jersey with the number 13 on it.  13 is a superstitious number.

IMG_6410

Below are screenshots from Tupac’s music video “How Do You Want It?”  This scene is the last part of the music video that depicts Tupac wearing the green Nike basketball jersey he was also wearing on the night of the Las Vegas shooting.  He stares at the two women to the left side of him and quickly moves his head to the right side before it fades into the next scene.  This scene is familiar to the shoot-out setup in Las Vegas.

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

Composure

To be a soldier, must maintain composure at ease.”

Composure is not only a quality fit for men of noble status; upon the walks of creation, we all have this quality.  Militarized actions are presented within a mixture of composure and strategic feats committed under the attention of one’s self. 

In the book “A Sociology of the Absurd,” qualities of composure and how it relates to Machiavelli is mentioned.

IMG_6097

Now these money hungry bitc*** getting suspicious. Started plottin and plannin on schemes, to come and trick us”

One must maintain composure and have the knowledge to counteract his/her enemies who have obtained the same weaponry, strategic texts, and support systems.  Machiavellianism is fueled on deception.

All Eyez On Me (All Eyez On Me/1996)

COINTELPRO

The feds is watchin, ni**az plottin to get me. Will I survive, will I die? Let’s picture the possibility”

 The F.B.I.’S COINTELPRO program is responsible for the downfall of the BLA and has been connected to Tupac Shakur’s career over the yearsCOINTELPRO specifically targets pro-black political entities and receives various forms of intelligence based on “illegal” activities related to their platform; this has been the case of Mutulu Shakur, stepfather of Tupac and supporter of a “Republic of New Afrika.”  Click here to listen to the “Dare to Struggle” mixtape that Dr. Mutulu organized for the awareness of COINTELPRO.  Surveillance became a constant mainstay in Tupac’s life.  COINTELPRO contributed to the spread of false black narratives and propaganda campaigns to discredit prominent black leaders.

Mysticism

Initiated as an Outlaw, studying rulesNow Papa ain’t around, so I gotta recall or come to grips with bein’ written on my enemy’s walls.”

Religious and spiritual texts fuel Tupac’s entrance into Makaveli.  The line “written on my enemy’s walls” is a connection to King Belshazzar and Daniel.  During wartime, a mysterious writing appears on a wall of the royal palace.  King Belshazzar assembles all enchanters, astrologers… etc.  None can decipher the writing.  Daniel is brought to the King, and eventually, the writing is revealed:

“God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.

  The Writing on the Wall

 King Belshazzar gave a great banquet for a thousand of his nobles and drank wine with them. 2 While Belshazzar was drinking his wine, he gave orders to bring in the gold and silver goblets that Nebuchadnezzar his father[a] had taken from the temple in Jerusalem, so that the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines might drink from them. 3 So they brought in the gold goblets that had been taken from the temple of God in Jerusalem, and the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines drank from them. 4 As they drank the wine, they praised the gods of gold and silver, of bronze, iron, wood and stone.

5 Suddenly the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall, near the lampstand in the royal palace. The king watched the hand as it wrote. 6 His face turned pale, and he was so frightened that his legs became weak and his knees were knocking.

7 The king summoned the enchanters, astrologers and diviners. Then he said to these wise men of Babylon, “Whoever reads this writing and tells me what it means will be clothed in purple and have a gold chain placed around his neck, and he will be made the third highest ruler in the kingdom.”

8 Then all the king’s wise men came in, but they could not read the writing or tell the king what it meant. 9 So King Belshazzar became even more terrified, and his face grew paler. His nobles were baffled.

But you, Belshazzar, his son, have not humbled yourself, though you knew all this. 23 Instead, you have set yourself up against the Lord of heaven. You had the goblets from his temple brought to you, and you and your nobles, your wives and your concubines drank wine from them. You praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or understand. But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways. 24 Therefore he sent the hand that wrote the inscription.

25 “This is the inscription that was written:

“mene, mene, tekel, parsin”

26 “Here is what these words mean:

Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.

27 Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.

28 Peres: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.”

Living by the Nile while the water flow
I’m contemplating plots wondering where the thought’ll go
Brothas getting shot, coming back resurrected”

The energy of the Nile is a power source for the spirit. It’s a gateway to another life/reincarnation.  A resurrection of the soul.

My family tree consists of drug dealers, thugs and killers
Strugglin’, known to hustle screaming, “Fuck they feelings!”
I got advice from my father, all he told me was this
Nigga, get off your ass if you plan to be rich!
There’s ten rules to the game, but I’ll share with you two
Know niggas gon’ hate you for whatever you do
Now, rule one: get your cash on, M.O.B.”

(The Clandestine Revolution)

Tupac grew up around Black Panthers and leaders of the Black Liberation Army which acted as an underground branch of the Black Panthers.  The BLA on May 7, 1973, performed a prison break and retrieved political prisoner and fellow Black Panther, Assata Shakur.  Assata was serving a life sentence for the murder of two New Jersey police officers.  The officers stopped her and two other suspects for a broken brake light on their vehicle, a gunfight ensued.  She was also wanted on bank robbery, assault, and other charges.  She fled to Cuba where she was granted political asylum by President Castro.  Her exact whereabouts in the reclusive country are unknown and political conversations are gearing up for Cuba regarding her extradition.

Kadafi’s father is Sekou Odinga — an expert in clandestine operations, military tactics, and versed in revolutionary philosophy.  Twelve years underground were utilized to position and expand the BLA and various factions.  He was finally caught in 1981 and recently released in 2014.

Ain’t Hard 2 Find & Ni**az Done Changed (All Eyez On Me/1996 & Seasoned Veteran/1996)

Prophecy

Ain’t Hard 2 Find:

I heard a rumor that I died, murdered in cold blood dramatized. Pictures of me in my final states, you know Mama cried. But that was fiction, some coward got the story twisted.

Ni**az Done Changed“:

I been shot and murdered, can’t tell you how it happened word for word.”

Both songs feature Oakland rapper Richie Rich.  The lyrics are a forewarning of sorts; ESP and the ability to forecast your destiny through mysticism is well-known in history.  Edgar Cayce, Rasputin, and Joan of Arc all had mystical qualities that were adapted to their time period.  Tupac initiated a mission to record music at such an intense rate that previously unreleased tracks continue to see the light-of-day.  His prophetic lyrics detail the mystical influences in his music during his Death Row recordings 1995-1996.

 

They Don’t Give A Fu** About Us (Better Dayz/2002)

Illuminati”

“Some say they expect Illuminati take my body to sleep
Niggas at the party with they shotties just as rowdy as me”

  Although Tupac publicly stated he didn’t believe in the Illuminati; many of his fans consider this statement to have subliminal traits of another message being told.  In an homage to Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us,” Tupac approached the subject matter head-on with “Some say they expect Illuminati take my body to sleep” and obscure lines such as “Before I flee computer chips”.   Who killed Tupac?  The “No Grape Theory” provides a look into the BLA.

November 2, 1974[1]
Hempstead, Long Island, New York City, New York, U.S.
Died June 20, 2017 (aged 42)
Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.

Tupac Shakur (Reincarnation: 2Pac’s only fear of death)

In our articles, we discussed books and lyrics Tupac wrote and read and how the influence of the Tibetan Book of the Dead and mysticism was present within 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 within 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 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 “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.”

Sokushinbutsu: Mummies Alive

Sokushinbutsu: a ritualistic realm performed by Buddhist monks who are immersed and devoted to Asceticism.  The devotee enters a state of mummification while alive through the use a unique diet that consists of pine needles, seeds and tea made from the sap of the urushi tree; the urushi tree produces a poisonous sap (arsenic) that is implanted into a liquid-state.  The organs of the Monk shrinks over time (3-10 years), towards the end, they would isolate themselves, either in a temple or cave for meditation and passageway into enlightenment.

(urushi tree)

h-074

The origins of Sokushinbutsu can be traced back to Kūkai, a Japanese Buddhist monk who died at the age of 62.  He helped to establish an esoteric form of Buddhism known as Shingon in Japan.  Kūkai had been in the service of Emperor Ninmyō; before his death, Kūkai suddenly retreated from his daily rituals and stopped the intake of food and water – after his demise, he was entombed at Mount Kōya.  Legend claims that his tomb was opened and Kūkai’s body was in a state of Samadhi (meditative consciousness) and his hair/nails had grown immensely.  The act of Sokushinbutsu was banned by the Japanese Government in the 19th century but Rouge sects still practice it throughout the world.

The practice has influenced countless other Monks.

(Itigilov)

Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov (75) was a Buryat Buddhist lama (Tibetan Buddhism) who revitalized Buddhism in Russia, building a temple in St. Petersburg and becoming one of the last Monks to sustain power within Russia’s “imperial mission.”  In 1926, he began meditation rituals, conducted the “death chant” and prepared himself for enlightenment.  Itigilov left behind writings that instructed for him to be buried in a ‘sitting’ lotus position; he insisted on the exhumation of his body after a period of set-years.  Itiglov was exhumed in 1955 and 1973; both occurrences presented no signs of decomposition.  In 2002, Itiglov’s remains were transported to the Ivolginsky Datsan and ended up being tested.  In 2013, Vladimir Putin made an appearance with Itigilov and other Monks of the Datsan.

(Tenzin)

Mummy lama1

Sangha Tenzin is a mummy located in 1975 when an earthquake struck the region of Northern India.  A tomb was discovered and the body of Sangha Tenzin, preserved with skin, hair and clothes in-tact was deemed a holy-find.  He allegedly asked the townspeople to perform a ritualistic mummification on him during an outbreak of scorpion attacks; his body reached enlightenment and the scorpions disappeared.  He is displayed in Himachal Pradesh, India.

(Honmyōka)

Honmyokai

Honmyōkai was a Samurai/Monk who dedicated 20 years to the process of Sokushinbutsu; he stated “I have decided to become a living Buddha.  If people of future ages are devoted, I will grant them whatever request they may have.”  Honmyōkai was buried alive in an underground chamber by his disciples on May 8, 1681.

(Shonin)

Shinnyokai-Shonin-Dainichibo-Temple

Shinnyokai Shonin was a farmer who unintentionally killed a samurai after a disagreement; while walking home from a day of farming, Shonin accidentally bumped into a Samurai, spilling maneuver onto the Samurai’s armor.  The Samurai had the right to retaliate and did so with a strike of his sword; Shonin kept the Samurai at bay with the use of his walking-shaft and eventually penetrated a weak spot on the Samurai’s armor, killing him.  Fearing imminent death, Shonin escaped to Dainichi Temple and became a devotee of the high priest there.  A local spring near the temple contains near-fatal concentrations of arsenic, this has been utilized as a hot-spot for most cases of Sokushinbutsu.  At age 96, Shonin entered a pine coffin and was buried alive.

Khanda Yoga (The practice of removing your limbs)

We all know about people walking on hot coals barefooted or sideshow performers swallowing swords but what about cutting off your legs and arms, all while sustaining no physical damage?  The ability to remove your body parts physically from this realm and remain unharmed seems far-fetched, but this practice known as Khanda Yoga has a dark and mystical history. 

Sai Baba of Shirdi, an Indian mystic, and Saint in Hinduism/Islam mastered many miracles during his lifetime.  Sai Baba had the power of Dhouti Yoga and invented his own form that included the removal of his intestines and body parts for ‘internal cleansing”.  He would hang his intestines to dry on a nearby tree while he removed the rest of his body in a similar fashion.  Sai Baba was also a guru of Khanda Yoga and was seen completing the act by devotees and common men.  The practice involves meditation upon corpses of fire; the Yogi demonstrates mind-over-body and relinquishes himself to the actual image of GOD.  This is a ‘form’ of personality energy that can manifest into a rebirth; therefore loss of limbs and death are no concern. 

The Yogi starts off by cutting off his legs and then his arms with a sword, he then tosses them onto the fire.  Half a day passes before the rebirth takes place and his limbs rejoin his body.  Depending on the knowledge of the Yogi, one can complete the ultimate Khanda by cutting off the head as well.  To free one’s self from their body, the Yogi fears not death but embraces the physical body as God’s light.  Self-identity or control of the Kundalini Shakti is crucial to the process.

It’s not exactly known if Sai Baba was Muslim or Hindu, but both religions praise his miracles and believe him to be a holy avatar.  For many years, Sai Baba lived in solitary and spoke in puzzling tounges, he would roam the nearby forests to meditate and forge for food; his strange ways attracted followers who helped forge the Sai Baba’s movement and beliefs.  He performed acts of multilocation (being two places at once), transvection (levitation), spiritual healing, and telepathy (mind reading).  Sai Baba devoted himself to Godly scriptures, the path of God (Bhakti Yoga), the path of Knowledge (Jnana Yoga) and Path of Action (Karma Yoga). 

For his work within the mystic realm, Sai Baba is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.

Tupac Shakur (Mystic symbolism in 2Pac’s music; mystical 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.”

“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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

“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.”

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.

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.
