|Frater Perdurabo, where have you gone,|
|Hast come a cropper of mystical brawn?|
|Frater Perdurabo, you've wandered afar,|
|Please tell us concerning the mythical star|
|That is of yourself and none other yet|
|Frater Perdurabo, why keep us in fret?|
|Now I say that you are a whole galaxy|
|With names that are numbered by systems of three,|
|But others are yelling that this isn't so,|
|We must add and subtract you with fours, in a row,|
|By dividing and adding and squaring the cube|
|We'll find you are nothing but some Irish rube,|
|Who with powers, dimensions, and shymical hobbs|
|Has taken to raising his korn for the khabs.|
|Some say you are Baphomet; puissant, supreme,|
|That you stand on your head in a dream of a dream;|
|Some say you are Crowley, a man what's a man,|
|Who would if he could and usually can.|
|Some say you are known with five V's in a string|
|Who ordered and templed a most solemn king;|
|Some say you are numbered by six and six six,|
|You would roast the profane on a bonfire of sticks|
|(All this for their own good, we no doubt suppose,|
|Tho a cross the wide land the foul stench a rose);|
|Some say you are Buddha, with bare pate and ghauts,|
|That you sit on a tack and think ponderous thoughts;|
|You say you can levi a tax on the brain|
|Whose constant perusal would rid of all pain;|
|Some say you are Therion, and therefore are free|
|Of adenoids, hay-fever, and such allergy;|
|Some say you are gypsy Ank Af, and construe|
|The scriptures you scribble to be literally true:|
|Nor must we forget on the Russian to count|
|Or how you kahn climb the Himalayan Mount.|
|All these and more others you are known by, it seems,|
|Frater Perdurabo, the spinner of dreams.|
Q. How do I "switch on" my astral body? I am having problems getting out of my physical body. -- originally from UT, but lately repeated.
I. Disbelief barrier -- "I can't do it, therefore I can't do it".
II. Threshold problem -- a visualization trick is needed to "spring you."
III. Misconception -- You may be expecting something that is not essential.
IV. Dual consciousness problem -- consciousness split between the physical and astral bodies in a manner that is not evident to you.
V. Already there problems -- In order to transfer to the astral body, you must first be soundly in the physical body. Otherwise, no clear transfer may be perceivable.
VI. Reflex problem -- This is a tendency to check the astral body with the physical body, a bit like moving the lips while reading.
VII. Multiple Astral working -- It is occasionally difficult for a person to monitor the visualized Astral body from another in use, but not visualized.
VIII. Lust of result.
IX. Weakness of intent.
X. Environmental problem.
XI. Lack of the secret of Luna.
XII. Something else...
