the 82 commandments of alejandro jodorowsky

The Arcane Front | Reyna d’Assia, daughter of the influential spiritual teacher George Gurdjieff, relayed these “commandments”, given to her by her father, to renowned filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky.   From Jodorowsky’s 2008 book “The Spiritual Journey of Alejandro Jodorowsky”:

[Reyna d’Assia]: “Whoever wishes to attain the supreme goal must first change his habits, conquer laziness, and become a morally sound human being. To be strong in the great things, we must also be strong in the small ones.” 
[Jodorowsky]: “How?”

Some of them may seem simple, but they are very difficult to realize. Believing them to be obvious, we fail to see that they are the key to immortal consciousness. Now I shall offer you a dictation of the commandments that my blessed father taught me…”
