    Alchemy essay...

    In essence, there are two ways to become a magician. 1) loving god (faith). 2) proving the truth (service). The synthesis of the two is strictly impossible. You cannot prove your love to God, purely because God is a mystery. Every mystery remembers itself as innocent, and innocence is in fact with it's own God. So, you have a situation in which God is realising that God is righteous. Does that sound familar? Probably no, but it's called epiphany. And, a magician stuck in an epiphany is a parable instead. Christ was not the magician or the alchemist within that thought. Fact is, a parable makes one suffer, where as magic/alchemy delivers one from that. So for now, know that Love has the choice to progress, or to regress. The whole creation, in fact, with it. To think or to feel. Alchemists do the former, and feelings that generate are positive. For the sake of it, feel then think means to joke. Everything happens for a reason, however.

    Progressing your spirituality is all about leading with ego. The ego is thought-feeling - thought first. In the end, if someone who is practicing alchemy will not use their ego, they will be joking instead of that. Ego is only a weapon, a stab in the dark by light of the soul. One really needs a way to tell where to point it. It is inwardly and outwardly "knowledge of destiny". What does your destiny tell your soul and how does that equate to spiritual evolution? In senses such as the eternal name of God, no-one has thought of a reason to believe in others - God being an aspect of self that is great. Faith is a mirror that way, you get what you deserve. To serve and suffice, on the other hand, is to reprove one's own past. Who wanted sex got sex. Simply, it is allowed to be found that "I have been joking." Where you had pain you get bliss, now. Your wants are always buried temporarily in your friends' hearts. So in barest simplicity, your leading-edge ego might either go retro and get some awesome future, or to think ahead to some beautiful lost past. Do you see what I mean, when I say, don't do both at once!

    The last thing on the mind of an alchemist is others, but that is the character trait that makes him patient. Of course, people who don't like others think only of them. Alchemy, on the other hand, is a perfectly organised will. A will needs Light, not a hiding place in the mind of all. We can call that hiding place hell. I would note that everyone has been there that has mastered himself, by the way. The grail is placed in that setup. Now, to progress cleanly into the Light of All That Is requires no such thing as external validation - and that is the point. The moment an alchemist remembers his science he is exalted, and that is what makes him so nice. The scientific question, for the record, is "Who am I?" and that makes the scientific method a case in point. God is not about to be anything other than human. Wild horses...

    Alchemy itself is nothing more than a game. Do you win your truth? You do. And when you catch someone feeling befuddled you wink secretly at them, because you do. The players are all seated. A silent determined choice realises: "I am not a bad species." Who wins so cosmic a game? Anyone who likes to - it's about vulnerability.

    I've always thought that what we call 'spiritual progress' is really progressing the ego to the point where its goals are the same as spirit. In other words, spirit doesn't progress, ego consciousness does. And to me alchemy is the discipline of corrrespondences. We use symbol to tap into a superconscious source.
    Cheers.

    What is the difference between lead and gold? Funny.

    Beyond the great work:
    a) I love it
    b) I want that

    That could be a quest superior (wonder is reasonable) or an inferior demon (beauty is supreme).

    In other words, the taoist philsophy. (Tao is the highest spirit).

    To me, alchemy is actually (about) anything what changes - as long as it is purposeful and conscious: transformation. (Everything in the universe transforms, all the time: from the most gross to most subtle particles, i.e. matter as taught by chemistry, but also energy as taught by ancient alchemy, and consciousness, as taught by ancient sacred sciences, which are purely symbolic). I believe that it is easy to fall into a certain occult or similar system and think in this system only (same is actually about science, which is just another system - based on strict logic, but still it is a model, which of course scientists admit), instead of 'see' the actual reality.

    At the top of all psychological or metaphysical correspondences is God the Witness, who chooses death. Now, alchemy believes that a Black Sun will open the eye of humanity. Do you ever think that He could outshine this creation? Insofar as that He is perfect, He did.

    He or She

    he = why
    she = whoever
    Her = that i love
    She = she who chose

    So you choose with your she's and the girl is the one you can love and the woman is the one you will love permanently. Now, in choosing that a girl be so brave as to show you a woman, you really need boys. Boys need girls, girls need women, and women need boys. You just have to be cunning, to deal with yourself like this... olyris

    In the Greek - and hence western - tradition we find 4 elements.

    The problem is, they desintegrate without a conscious influence (similarly to heaven and earth naturally going in the opposite directions). There is a guiding element needed, so that they worked together. This element is ether and soul (the latter working through the use of the former).

    Here is the short alchemical view on how elements build the world on all important to human beings levels (the order below is not coincidental):

    1st WATER - depth and philosophy (I think this one fits Olyris )

    2nd FIRE - feelings, passion and action

    3rd AIR - communication and movement

    4th EARTH - stability and security

    5th ETHER - integration, conscious work and the guiding principle

    Yes, the guiding principle.

    And what might be in the water but for a stone, a stone cast long ago and long ago I might have found a way to pick it up and throw it away: "I needed relief." From an old Enlightened teacher of mine.
