7 January (Hadit) Liber CCXX, 2:73-74

Postby Jim Eshelman » Sat Jan 07, 2012 2:32 pm

(v. 139) 73. Ah! Ah! Death! Death! thou shalt long for death. Death is forbidden, o man, unto thee.
(v. 140) 74. The length of thy longing shall be the strength of its glory. He that lives long & desires death much is ever the King among the Kings.

The sexual metaphor continues, as a model of how to live life. The prolongation of ever increasing pleasure, the resistance or deferral of orgasm in the constantly ascending spiral of intensity, is not only the key to true sexual fulfillment, it is also the attitude and method put forth for the living of every area of life. It is also a technique of the highest magick known to me (and no, I do not specifically or necessarily mean tantric techniques, although they may be subsumed within the bigger scheme).

Liber A’ash then becomes an instruction in the living of life.

The ego displacement and intensity of “Ah” is obvious. This is a word composed of letters and sounds of pure breath, spiritus. It is virtually an unconscious effort to “give up the ghost (geist, gust).” Only the smallness (mediocrity) of a person foreshortens his or her ability to persist through ever-ascending waves of ecstasy, light, and reality. Therefore have we been counseled to be strong, to exceed by delicacy, to develop subtlety, to strive ever to more, and to exceed the limits of our present parameters. Thus fortified, life becomes an ever expanding bed of worshipful delight.

“The length of thy longing shall be the strength of its glory. ” Aye, amen, and again amen.

Digression: Amen is itself a formula of this Task: Aleph = the illimitable source of Life; Mem = the ecstatic surrender to its Reality; Nun = the invocation of death=ecstasy in its transformation and transmutation. Amen!

The final sentence of v. 140 is the natural result for one who lives life in this way. (PS - 140 is the value of MLKYM, “kings,” which is also the name of the Angelic Choir of Tiphereth.)

“Death is forbidden, ” ultimately, because there is no such thing as death - not of the star, only of its vehicles and veils. In full consciousness, life proceeds on beyond horizon and horizon....

ANALYTIC NOTE: Having passed through these last ten verses, it seems unmistakably clear that they are the Nun decade of this Book. These "decades" flow best from Aleph to Tav, not the reverse as I once thought. We will next enter unto ten others, attributable in theory to Samekh; and if we need any confirmation of this theory, we have but to look ahead to the sixth verse of its series, that corresponding to Tiphereth, and read: “Abrahadabra; the reward of Ra Hoor Khut.”
