We believe that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us and that we experience this Kingdom in the degree that we become conscious of it.
The Spirit has placed divine intuition within everyone. This divine intuition is the gateway through which the inspiration of the Almighty enters the mind. This is why the Psalms tell us to “lift up our gates.” That is, lift up the intuition and permit the Divine Light to enter.
Intuition is the gateway into this Inner Wisdom. Integration of body-mind knowledge and Inner Wisdom gives us a holistic perspective.
The Intuitive consciousness is the point of touch where man meets God and becomes confluent with the mind of the Infinite. It is the gateway through the last sense limit where all lines are dissolved, and the soul looks beyond the circumscribed
In its popular (limited) definition, Alchemy is an empirical science which concerns itself with the transmutation of base metals into gold. For many the word Alchemy conjures up an image of a crude laboratory where foolhardy pseudo-scientists labor to turn lead into gold so that they may spend their lives living in a state of luxury. However Alchemy’s true definition encompasses the doctrine of the transformation of humanity to a higher stage. The treatises of Alchemy are not only chemical in nature, but also mystical and magical. Certainly many Alchemists left behind a vast amount of information to prove the fact that one version of Alchemy was primarily practical and chemical in nature. On the other hand, the principal interest of many Alchemical philosophers was spiritual. These Alchemists did not look merely for the substance of gold, they sought to give the quality of gold to their own being—to transmute the base metals (gross and impure parts of their own nature) to spiritual gold (wisdom). To them gold, the metal which never tarnishes and cannot be corrupted by Fire or Water, was a symbol of illumination and salvation.

From the mind the dross of Ignorance (Avidyā); and the human is transmuted into the divine by the spiritual alchemy of yoga.
This illumination which permits us to have a true conception of the beautiful scheme of existence is obtained by “drinking,” or absorbing, the “Wine of Life,” which brings about the union of the Sun and Moon, or head and heart, or physical and spiritual being, in the alchemical marriage.
One might even acquire an inner elixir through spiritual illumination and produce an ethereal and immortal body within oneself .
The function of human existence is to strive for illumination. This is the natural development which needs to take place if we are ever to realise our true potential as unlimited spiritual beings.
The objective of the work is designed in such a way as to change us from a dispersed fear-based culture to an interconnected love-based collective, so as to make the largest soul-stride possible at this time of remarkable change.
This harmonious vibration is vast and potent, for it unifies mind, body, and soul. Harmony is benign yet powerful; through it, we achieve a unique fusion of embodiment and spiritual integration. Just as the alchemists of old intended, the embodied divine human is the ”philosopher’s stone.” When we emerge suffused with divine love, we discover the “stone” multiplies to infinity, endlessly repeating as we use breath-light and sound. We become selfless instruments of the divine, moving like thousands of meteors throughout the cosmos.

Get out of your “Ego space” since your Ego is 100% non-intuitive.
The stronger the ego, the less the intuitive information will flow from your Higher Self. So the ego become the tyrant of human mind and through this less intuitive information will expand to the real Higher Self. The ego has not just become the god of this world, it has also become the god of mass consciousness. Ego and mass consciousness is not divine or ihe gold consciousness, but rather the leaden consciounsess.
The ego wants us to create divides and it will find anyway possible to do that, because if we stay divided the ego can live on as a powerful guidance of our lives; our fear becomes our inner guidance system.
The intuition, with its symbols, is a gateway to the inner unconscious, source of our most powerful thoughts and urges.
Earth are still locked in the embrace of the ego.
Thus, the ego-self is intuition’s enemy.
The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner.” It is the ego that deny or rejects intuition and wisdom of the stone. The ego deny humans from knowing their inner true self and spiritual wisdom.
Intuition is what brings us near to God, so the ego´s goal of this world is to keep humans tuned into low vibrational frequencis, then thet are disconnected from being in touch with high vibrational frequenies that vibrates fast enough to be in touch with the divine higher self. Instead it is the ego itself that has become the god of this world and therefore present itself as god.
Alchemy is a powerful and effective system consisting of seven basic stages in which consciousness can be transformed in positive and life-affirming ways. It’s generally thought of as a process that turns lead to gold. Like the alchemists who transformed lead into gold, you will transform your consciousness into gold and divine light.
Transcending the elements in this way psychologically means that we’ve transmuted lead into gold. We have, in other words, fused the four elements, or states of consciousness, and transformed them into a superior state of golden consciousness.
Alchemy of Light is a groundbreaking and unique approach to spiritual life and awakening, which reveals the real power of spiritual consciousness as an agent of global change.
The power of alchemy is as a metaphor for such transformation. “The gold of which [the alchemists] spoke was thus not really gold, but a “golden” state of mind,
It is not so easy to let the familiar world dissolve. But this is how we can open the door to transformation.
The New Man, The Future Man, This alchemical transformation from one conscious state to another consists of steps—concentration–contemplation—meditation, from leaden consciounsess to gold consciousness (transform lead to gold), The New Man will be Master—and not slave. The Superman is one who has gone beyond good and evil (beyond the state of duality),” who has shaken off from his nature and character elements that are human. To be unaffected by the collective mindset and unconscious behavior, the programming that turns people into compliance automatons within the social trance, we must become masters in our own houses. Then we can create the hidden stone within us. The stone that is not a stone but a state of consciousness, the Buddhahood or Christhood. Alchemy and meditation is the central key.
A consciousness opens in our very flesh and marrow that enables us to pierce the veil of things and pass beyond and understand — see and experience — the why and the how and the whither of it all.
The real human greatness, the force that impels man to be like a star. The Power that gives us life is sleeping in our Unconsciousness, but it is the same power that is at this very moment transforming a bud into an open flower.
When the human flower is open, the Super-Conscious is fully felt and all myths and human values are transmuted. But we have to transform ourselves. There is an Alchemy that changes our lives.
This exchange is accomplished through the consciousness of the Christ, the Super Ego who, positioned in the center of the cross, is the agent of the alchemical transformation that takes place between the energies of God and man.
The cross is the center, but it also represents division; it is a counterpart of the mandala symbolizing the division of the world into a polarity of right and left.
The symbol of the cross, which many have long misunderstood, is a symbol that promotes deeper understanding of the end of duality that approaches. The cross shows two opposite energies coming from two different directions. The center, where those energies meet, represents illumination. It is in the center, where opposites meet, that the divine spark begins, for divinity and unity are the same. (It is the clash of opposites that creates the divine spark. We will speak more of this when we speak about the Divine Couple.) The symbol of the cross illustrates how opposites meet in the center and spark illumination. The end of duality is represented by the coming together of polar opposites at the center of the cross.
Ascension needs to be understood as the completion and integration of every astral layer/body within the entire periodic table. This is the same as being energetically mastered within every single type of energy in this world. It should be noted that when awareness is concealed at one particular center gives birth to extraordinary awareness and abilities.
The sixth chakra is often referred to as the “third eye” and is the seat of intuition and consciousness. It is sometimes called the “triple confluence” as the main nadis cross over here.
Another symbol for the meeting of these three nadis is the Christian cross, where ida is balanced with pingala. The left side of the cross is ida, the right side is pingala, and the vertical line is sushumna, which continues upward to sahasrara. The three lines meet in ajna chakra, the egoless state, where you die (are crucified) to your old self.
Stepping beyond death was the attribute of the sixth chakra; mastery of time was the attribute of the seventh. The end of duality is the birth of Oneness. The state of duality is the state of ego, and were the olf ego-self ends, it is the birth of the real divine Higher Self.
The sixth chakra, or third eye, is located in the middle of the fore-head. In the Hindu traditions it is thought to be the third eye of who grants knowledge of perfect truth and nonduality.
The name of this center in Sanskrit is aim, or “unlimited power.” In this chakra we attain the knowledge that we are inseparable from God. You realize that you are an eternal being inhabiting a temporal body. A person with an awakened sixth chakra realizes that the authentic self must shed its exclusive identification with bodily or mental experiences. We transcend body and mind, yet welcome both into the field of our awareness. As we begin to observe the mind, we can step into transpersonal states. We follow the mind with curiosity yet without being absorbed by it. Doubt disappears when you step beyond the mind, and desire and longing cease to be driving forces. One enters the realms of knowledge that can be experienced but not told. It is not that these realms lie outside the domain of words, but rather that experience is all there is.
There the three major nadis (ida, pingala, and sushumna) meet together at a junction that forms a red hexagonal region. In fact, the ida and pingala nadis terminate in the brow center, at the point where they conjoin with sushumna, the central median axis of your subtle body.
The Sanskrit word taraka means “cross over,” “liberate,” or “deliver.” What is being liberated? The goal of all yogic practice is to liberate your soul from the bondage of this relative world—the dualistic field of suffering and ignorance—and to realize the true self.
The work of transmuation and transformation is a process of alchemy and meditation.
“Alchemy is not merely an art or science to teach metallic transmutation, so much as a true and solid science that teaches how to know the center of all things, which in the divine language is called the Spirit of Life.
Contemplation of alchemical diagrams and pictorial symbolism is meant to intrigue and inspire the viewer on many levels—conscious as well as subconscious—and speak directly to the human soul on the true nature of the alchemist’s “gold?’ Alchemy’s true definition encom-passes the transformation of humanity to a higher stage of spiritual purity. While many alchemists worked in the laboratory, the principal interest of many alchemical philosophers was spiritual. These alche-mists did not look merely for the substance of gold; they sought to give the quality of gold to their own being—to transmute the base metals—(the gross and impure parts of their own nature) into spiritual gold (divine wisdom). To them, gold, the metal which never tarnishes and cannot be cor-rupted by fire and water, was a symbol of illumination and salvation. This alchemical gold was the Philosopher’s Stone. Gold represented light incarnate, as well as the sun, purity, and spiritual attainment.
Alchemical theory states that eternal wisdom remains dormant in humanity so long as a mundane state of ignorance and superficiality exists. The objective of alchemy is the uncovering of this inner wisdom, and the removal of veils and obstacles between the mind and its intrinsically pure divine source.
The goal of alchemy is called the Magnum Opus, or the Great Work. It is the purification and evolution of something lesser and coarser, into something greater and more refined—whether in metals, vegetable matter, or in human consciousness. The term prima materia, or “first matter;’ is used to describe the original substance and condition of whatever material the alchemist is trying to change, be it lead or his own soul. Through the alchemical art, this first matter is transformed into the Philosopher’s Stone—the highest most perfect form of matter—it is the first matter elevated to the Godhead. This process is often symbolized by the transformation of lead (the darkest, heaviest, and least valuable of the metals) into pure gold, the most brilliant and valuable of metals.
Although alchemy suggests the pursuit of a formula for condensing gold, true alchemy is the quest for spiritual illumination. We dissolve the mist of illusion — the “cloud of unknowing” — that lies between our conscious mind and our “divine. The veil of ignorance is the veil of the ego thay clouds reality and the divine nature of Man.
The ordinary human consciousness is obstructed, blind, unconscious, a play of illusions (maya). The ordinary human consciousness is also the “leaden consciousness” that is in action in the human daily living. This leaden consciousness can be transmuted and transformed into higher levels of consciousness or the gold consciouness (Buddha or Christ state of Consciousness).
The Agnya Chakra is placed at their crossing point, and controls the pituitary and pineal bodies in the gross. Thus the pituitary controls the ego, and the pineal controls the superego. The pineal which controls the superego is over-developed in animals. In human beings there is balance between the ego and superego, by which both the ego and superego come to the centre on top of the brain near the fontanel bone.
The complete covering of the brain and the calcification of the fontanel bone separates human beings from the All-pervading Divine Power. In this way humans develop their “I-ness” or own identity. When both ego and superego are balanced by the temperate life of devotion of a householder, the Kundalini awakened through Yoga, breaks through the centre of the brain. She takes the attention of the seeker into the All-pervading Power, the Universal Unconscious. His attention moves onto the left or the right side of the system according to the nature of his activity. Any energy that is needed for this activity comes from the Ida or Pingala Nadis, and the Deities which are placed at the centre of the chakras (see Figure) decide the appropriate mode of action. The two parabolae of energy emerge from the two sides on the Pingala and Ida Nadis, one in a clockwise direction, the other in an anti-clockwise direction. The energy needed is transformed by the Deities. They are in contact with the seats of the subtle centers (Peethas) in the brain, and also with the auras of the Spirit that encircle the Divine Spirit (Atma) in the heart.
Until you are able to understand the meaning of the Self, the physical body would remain imperfect and would be unable to verify the truth. But once the physical instrument is connected with truth you are able to verify the Truth.
It is very important to understand that until the animal stage there was no need for animals to solve the problem of life as animals were under the complete command of God. At the human stage, however, as we learn from the story of Adam and Eve, they were given the choice and freedom to solve the problem of life itself. That was how evolution was to go a step further. Without such freedom human beings were not equipped to learn the secrets of Divine Power.
The ultimate in Opposites, the empirical ego and complex and the transcendent totality of the Self are brought together in the third, making the paradox of an apparent duality into a unity. The subject or individual soul who experiences the totality of the Self is both the same yet also different from its source, and it is also the same yet different from the opposites in the ego complexes that have been united. In The Symbolic Life , Jung reiterates that the Self is the central archetype, and equates it with the Deity. He again uses Christ as the epitome of the whole man whose crucifixion represents the process of uniting the opposites. In this reference Christ is “the model for the human answers and his symbol is the cross, the union of the opposites” . The work of seeing and understanding and thereby uniting the opposites in soul is the discovery of the “middle way,” or individuation, which is a conscious journey back to unity. It is a “task left to man, and that is the reason why man is so important to God that he decided to become a man himself’. Without the opposites of the complex experienced in the ego there is no material for transformation.
Ancient alchemists worked to turn lead into gold, which was to turn heavy and base metal into metallic light. The great psychologist Carl Jung explained this alchemical pro-cess as a metaphor for transforming the dark matter of the unconscious into the pure gold of the integrated self — for turning our own internal darkness into light. The universe reflects an alchemical process of transform-ing matter into consciousness, which we could call the ‘alchemy of light’. From mineral to plant, to animal, human and then to enlightened sage is a progressive evolution of the light of consciousness.
This ability to extract consciousness from matter is the internal alchemy of light. Our lives are part of this churning process, to bring the light out of darkness, to bring our soul out of our bodily density and inertia. Through the inner light of awareness we can discover light, truth and beauty in all things, which is to return the world to God without any loss of diversity. All life is moving towards this alchemical transformation of consciousness. The process of evolution does not end with the human mind as we know it. The mind too must evolve further to its source — which is pure consciousness or pure light transcending all material forms.
We must move beyond our current dualistic thought-based intellect, trapped as it is in likes and dislikes, attractions and repulsions, opinions and prejudices to a greater unitary awareness. This pure light of universal consciousness is what great yogis and mystics have always sought to realize through their meditation practices. The universe is evolving toward enlightenment as its true goal. Our role as a species is to bring the evolutionary process to its decisive phase in which we consciously seek enlightenment, so that the plenary light of pure consciousness can come forth out of the half-light of the mind. This search for enlightenment is our real contribution to the evolutionary movement.
Slowly the path and its practices free us from our negative tendencies and give us access to more and more of our light, more of its consciousness. And as we diligently work upon ourself through our devotions and inner work—as we “polish the mirror of our heart”—so the light within us grows. And this light works its mysterious chemistry, opening life in unexpected ways, revealing more of its magic and wonder. Also, as our light grows, we attract a higher light, a light from the inner world of pure spirit.
This is the mystery of “light upon light” in which “light rises towards light and light comes down upon light.” The light within us and the light from above then work together, growing in strength and purity, helping us on our journey. In fact the journey is the light transforming us, revealing itself within and around us. What we think is our evolution is the evolution of the light of our true nature, expressing itself in our inner and outer life and expanding our consciousness.
There is a great difference between a consciousness that sees with the reflected light of the ego and one that sees with the true light of the Self. The ego exists in a world of distortions and patterns of control that are antithetical to the Self. The light of the Self burns away these distortions, though this is often a painful process—to become free of the many chains that bind us, we have to lose what we have believed most precious.
And so the journey continues, the eternal journey from darkness to light. This journey of the soul takes us Home, where it finally reveals that the light within us is the One Light. There is only one light—the light of the heavens and the earth is the light within our own heart. We are the light of God in the world. The light within our heart is His light. This simple truth of the union mystica finally takes the wayfarer from the prison of the ego into the ever-expanding dimension of our divine nature and its true purpose; and into a direct experience of the oneness of life.
This alchemical transformation from one conscious state to another consists of steps—concentration–contemplation—meditation. These specific layers allows the individual to move from the microcosm to the macrocosm—it moves the individual from the fragmented self to the complete self—it moves the individual from a one dimensional view point to a multidimensional view point—it moves the individual from the conscious mind to the super conscious mind.
“Its goal is nothing less than the total transformation of a seemingly limited physical, mental and emotional person into a fully illumined, thoroughly harmonized and perfected being—from an individual with likes and dislikes, pains and pleasures, successes and failures, to a sage of permanent peace, joy and selfless dedication to the entire creation.”
The yogis believed that this transformation was possible for all beings. They believed that through their fervent dedication to seeking the answers to unlocking the mind and expanding their consciousness, that their teachings would help to illuminate a path for all who seek to experience Oneness.
“The basic premise of Yoga is that our perception of the divine Self is obscured by the disturbances of the mind. If the mind can be made still and pure, the Self will automatically, instantaneously, shine forth.”
“When, through the practice of yoga, the mind ceases its restless movements, and becomes still, the aspirant realizes the Divine Higher Self.” Essentially, meditation is the conduit for creating mental space, to tap into the unknown reservoir that is your being, passing through the wormhole of your consciousness in an effort to allow your highest self —your true Self.
The world is in the throes of a new creation and the pangs of that new birth have made mother Earth restless. It is no longer a far-off ideal that our imagination struggles to visualise^ nor a prophecy that yet remains to be fulfilled. It is Here and Now.
Although we may not know it, the New Man — the divine race of humanity is already among us. Only a thin veil covers it. It marches just behind the line. It waits for an occasion to throw off the veil and place itself in the forefront. We are living in strenuous times inj which age-long institutions are going down and new forces rearing their heads, old habits are being cast off and new impulsions acquired. In every sphere of life, we see the urgent demand for a recasting, a fresh valuation of things.
From the base to the summit, from the economic and political life to the artistic and spiritual, humanity is being shaken to bring out a new expression and articulation. There is the hidden surge of a Power, the secret stress of a Spirit that can no longer suffer to remain in the shade and behind the mask, but wills to come out in the broad day-light and be recognised in its plenary virtues. That Power, that Spirit has been grow-ing and gathering its strength during all the millenniums that humanity has lived through. On the momentous day when man appeared on earth, the Higher Man also took his birth.
Since the hour the Spirit refused to be impri-soned in its animal sheath and came out as man, it approached by that very uplift a greater freedom and a vaster movement. It was the crest of that underground wave which peered over the surface from age to age, from clime to clime through the experiences of poets and prophets and sages—the Head of the Sacrificial Horse galloping towards the Dawn. And now the days of captivity or rather of inner preparation are at an end.
The voice in the wilderness was necessary, for it was a call and a communion in the silence of the soul. To-day the silence seeks utterance. To-day the shell is ripe enough to break and to bring out the mature and full-grown being. The king that was in hiding comes in glory and triumph, in his complete regalia. Another humanity is rising out of the -present human species. The beings of the new order are everywhere and it is they who will soon hold sway over earth, be the head .and front of the terrestrial evolution in the -cycle that is approaching as it was with man in the cycle that is passing away.
What will this new order of being be like ? It will be what man is not, also what man is. It will not be man, because it will overstep the limi-tations and incapacities inherent in man ; .and it will be man by the realisation of those fundamental aspirations and yearnings that have troubled and consoled the deeper strata —the soul—in him throughout the varied experiences of his terrestrial life.
The New Man will be Master—and not slave. He will be master, first, of himself and then of the world. Man as he actually is) is but a slave. He has no personal voice or choice ; the determining soul, in him is sleep-bound and hushed. He is a mere plaything in the hands of nature and circumstances. Therefore it is that Science has become his supreme; for science seeks to teach us the moods of Nature and the methods of propitiating her. Our actual ideal of man is that of the cleverest slave.
But the New Man will have found himself and by and according to his inner will, mould and create his world. He will not be in awe of Nature and in an attitude of perpetual apprehension and hesitation, but will ground himself on a secret harmony and union that will declare him as the lord. We will recognise the New Man by his very gait and manner, by a certain kingly ease and dominion in every shade of his expression.
Not that this sovereign power will have anything to do with aggression or over-bearingness. It will not be a power that feels itself only by creating an eternal opponent—by coming in constant clash with a rival, that seeks to gain victory by subju-gating. It will not be Nietzschean ” will to power,” which is, at best, a supreme Asuric power. It will rather be a Divine Power, for the strength it will exert and the victory it will achieve will not come from the ego—it is the ego which requires an object outside and against to feel and affirm itself—but it will come from a higher personal self which is one with the cosmic soul and therefore with other personal souls. The Asura, in spite of, or rather, because of his aggressive vehemence betrays a lack of the sovereign power that is calm and at ease and self-sufficient. The Devic power does not assert but simply accomplishes; the forces of the world act not as its opponent but as its instrument.
Thus the New Man shall affirm his individual sovereignty and do so to perfection by expressing through it his unity with the cosmic powers, with the infinite godhead. And by being Swarat Self-Master, he will become Samrat, world-master. This mastery will be effected not merely in will, but in mind and heart also. For the New Man will know not by the intellect which is egocentric and therefore limited, not by ratiocination which is an indirect and doubtful process, but by direct vision, an inner communion, a soul revelation.
The new knowledge will be vast and profound and creative, based as it will be upon the reality of things and not upon their shadows. Truth will shine through every experience and every utterance —” a truth shall have its seat on our speech and mind and hearing”, so have the Vedas said. The mind and intellect will not he active and constructive agents but the luminous channel of a self-luminous knowledge.
And the heart too which is now the field of passion and egoism will be cleared of its noise and obscurity ; a serener sky will shed its pure warmth and translucent glow. The knot will be rent asunder—Midyate hridaya granthih—and the vast and mighty streams of another ocean will flow through. We will love not merely those to whom we are akin but God’s crea-tures, one and all ; we will love not with the yearning and hunger of a mortal but with the wide and intense Rasa that lies in the divine identity of souls.
And the new society will be based not upon competition, nor even upon co-operation. It will not be an open conflict, neither will it be a convenient compromise of rival individual interests. It will be the organic expression of the collective soul of humanity, working and achieving through each and every individual soul its most wide winging freedom, manifesting the godhead that is proper to each and every one. It will be an organisation, most delicate and subtle and supple, the members of which will have no need to live upon one another but in and through one another. It will be, if you like, a henotheistic hierarchy in which everyone will be the greatest, since everyone is all and all everyone simultaneously.
The New Humanity will be something in the mould that we give to the gods. It will supply the link that we see missing between gods and men ; it will be the race of embodied gods. Man will attain that thing which has been his first desire and earliest dream, for which he coveted the gods—Im-mortality, amritatwam. The mortalities that cut and divide, limit and bind man make him the sorrowful being he is. These are due to his ignorance and weakness and egoism. These are due to his soul itself.
It is the soul that requires change, a new birth, as Christ demanded. Ours is a little soul that has severed itself from the larger and mightier self that it is. And therefore does it die every moment and even while living is afraid to live and so lives poorly and miser-ably. But the age is now upon us when the god-like soul anointed with its immortal’ royalties is ready to emerge and claim our salutation. The breath and the surge of the new creation cannot be mistaken. The question that comfronts us to-day is no longer whether the New Man, the Super-humanity, will come or if at all, when ; but the question we have to answer is who among us are ready to be its receptacle, its instrument and ’embodiment.
THE CREATIVE SOUL
The difference between living organism and dead matter is that while the former is endowed with, creative activity, the latter has only passive receptivity. Life adds, synthetises, new-creates—gives more than what it receives ; matter only sums up, gathers, reflects, gives just what it receives. Life is living, glad and green through its creative genius. Creation in some form or other must be the core of everything that seeks vitality and growth, vigour and delight. Not only so, but a thing in order to be real must possess a creative function. We consi-der a shadow or an echo unreal precisely because they do not create but merely image or repeat, they do not bring out any-thing new but simply reflect what is given. The whole of existence is real because it is eternally creative. So the problem that concerns man, the riddle that humanity has to solve is how to find out and follow the path of creativity. If we are not to be dead matter nor mere shadowy illusions we must be creative.
Every individual soul, however placed it may be, is by nature creative; every individual being lives to discover and to create. The inmost reality of man is not a passive receptacle, a mere responsive medium but it is a dynamo—a power-station generating and throwing out energy that produces and creates.
Now the centre of this energy, the matrix of creativity is the soul itself, one’s own soul. If you want to create—live, grow and be real—find yourself, be yourself. The simple old wisdom still remains the eternal wisdom. It is because we fall off from our soul that we wander into side-paths, paths that do not belong to our real nature and hence that lead to imitation and repetition, decay and death. This is what happens to what we call common souls. The force of circumstances, the pressure of environment or simply the momentum of custom or habit. compel them to choose the easiest and the readiest way that may lie before them. They do not consult the demand of the inner being but the requirement of the moment. Our bodily needs, our vital hungers and our mental prejudices obsess and obscure the impulsions that thrill the hidden spirit.
We hasten to gratify the immediate and forget the eternal, we clutch at the shadow and let go the substance. We are carried away in the flux and tumult of life. It is a mixed and collective whirl—a Welt-Geist that :moves and governs us. We are helpless.straws drifting in the current. But manhood demands that we stop and pause, pull ourselves out of the Maelstrom and be what we are. We must shape things as we want and not allow things to shape us as they want. Let each take cognisance of the godhead that is within him—for self is God—and in the strength of the soul-divinity create his universe. It does not matter what sort of’ universe he creates, so long as he creates it.
The world has become dull and uniform and mechanical, since everybody endeavours to become not himself, but always somebody else. Imitation is servitude and servitude brings in grief. In one’s own soul lies the very height and profundity of a godhead. Each soul by bringing out the note that is his, makes for the most wondrous symphony. Once a man knows what he is and holds fast to it, refusing to be drawn away by any necessity or temptation, he begins to uncover himself, to do what his inmost nature demands and takes joy in, that is to say, begins to create.
Indeed there may be much difference in the forms that different souls take. But because each is itself, therefore each is grounded upon the iundamental equality of things. All our valuations are in reference to some standard or other set up with a particular end in view, but that is a question of the practical world which in no way takes away from the intrinsic value of the greatness of the soul. So long as the thing is there, the how of it does not matter. Infinite are the ways of manifestation and all of them the very highest and the most sublime, provided they are a manifestation of the soul itself, provided they rise and flow from the same level.
The cosmic soul is true. But that truth is borne out, effectuated only by the truth of the individual soul. When the individual soul becomes itself fully and integrally, by that very fact it becomes also the cosmic soul. The individuals are the channels through which flows the Universal and the Infinite in its multiple emphasis. Each is a particular figure, aspect— a particular angle of vision of All. The vision is entire and the figure perfect if it is not refracted by the lower and denser parts of our being. And for that the individual must first come to itself and shine in its opal clarity and translucency. Not to do what others do, but what your .soul impels you to do. Not to be others but your own self. Not to be anything but the very cosmic and infinite divinity of your soul. Therein lies your highest freedom and perfect delight. And there you are supremely creative. Each soul has a consort—Prakriti, Nature—wbhich it creates out of its own rib. And in this field of infinite creativity the soul lives, moves and has its being.
The Superman is one who has gone beyond good and evil (beyond the state of duality),” who has shaken off from his nature and character elements that are human, all too human ”-—who is the embodiment of life-force in its absolute purity and strength and freedom. This then is the mantra of the new age—Life with Intuition as its guide and not Reason and mechanical efficiency, not Man but Superman.
So if you have to transcend man, you have to transcend egoism also. For a conscious egoism is the very characteristic of man and by increaing yoursense of egoism you do not supersede man but simply aggrandise your humanity. The superman, if he is to be the man “who has surmounted himself””, must embody a poise of being in which all the three find a fusion and harmony—a perfect. synthesis.
Intuition is a sort of sympathy, community of feeling or sensibility with the urge of the life-reality. The difference between the sympathy of Instinct and the sympathy of Intuition being that while the former is an unconscious or semi-conscious power, the latter is illumined and self-cons-cious. Now this view emphasises only the feeling-tone of Intuition, the vital sensibility that attends the direct communion with the life movement. But Intuition is not only purified feeling and sensibility, it is also purified vision and knowledge. It unites us not only with the movement of life, but also opens out to our sight the Truths, the fundamental realities behind that movement.
Matter forms the lowest level of reality. Above it is the elan vital. Above the clan vital there is yet the domain of the Spirit. And the Spirit is a static substance and at the same ‘a dynamic creative power. It is Being (Sat) that realises or expresses itself through certain typal nuclei or nodi of cons-ciousness (chit) in a continuous becoming, in a flow of creative activity (ananda). The dynamism of the vital energy is only a re-fraction or precipitation of the dynamism of the spirit ; and so also static matter is only the substance of the spirit concretised and solidified. It is in an uplift both of matter and vital force to their prototypes—swarupa and swabhava—in the Spirit that lies the real transformation and transfiguration of the) humanity of man.
This is the truth that is trying to dawn upon the new age. Not matter but that which forms the substance of matter, not intellect but a vaster consciousness that informs the intellect, not man as he is, an aberration in the cosmic order, but as he may and shall be the embodiment and fulfilment of that order—this is the secret Intuition -which, as yet dimly envisaged, nevertheless secretly inspires all the human activities of to-day. Only, the truth is being interpreted, ‘as we have said, in terms of vital life. The intellectual and physical man gave us one aspect of the reality, but neither is the vital and psychical man the complete reality.
The one acquisition of this shifting of the view point has been that we are now in touch with the natural and deeper movement of humanity and not as before merely with its artificial scaffolding.
Certainly this does not go far enough into the motive of the change. The cosmic order does not mean mentalised vitalism which is also in its turn a section of the integral reality. It means the order of the spirit, it means the transfiguration of the physical, the vital and the intellectual into the supernal Substance, Powerand Light of that Spirit. The real transcendence of humanity is not the transcendence of one or other of its levels but the total transcendence to an altogether different status and the transmutation of humanity in the mould of that status— of the tranquil vision and delight and dynamism of the Spirit— the incarnation of a god-head.
The Spiritualized Psyche: Reclaiming the Inner World Through the Power of Truth
The philosophical tradition of alchemy, which has been practiced since antiquity, was purported to bestow profound miraculous powers upon its practitioners. These supposedly included knowledge of the fabled “philosopher’s stone,” a magical formula that could transform base metals such as lead into gold or, working as an elixir of life, bestow the gift of immortality on those who unlocked its secrets. Metaphorically this myth hints at the transformation of consciousness—conversion of the ordinary human mind (lead) into a reflection of the Eternal Living Mind (gold). For those embarked on the quest to enlighten their minds, psychological self-knowledge is of paramount importance. A good alchemist must know the substances he is working with, otherwise his experiments could blow up in his face. If you and I want to turn lead into gold, transform mortal human consciousness into higher consciousness (and access its attendant powers), we need to have a very clear and perhaps even new understanding of the human psyche.
Happiness and the Transformation of Negative Emotions
If the true secret of alchemy is the transformation of gross substances into something finer, then in the laboratory of our own consciousness we can practice the art of turning the lead of negative thoughts and emotions into pure gold. How can we entertain negativity and be happy at the same time? It is impossible. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. Our light, not our darkness, frightens us most.
Shocking as it may seem to those enmeshed in cynicism, the key to the art of happiness is knowing how to turn the lock that keeps us addicted to our negative emotions, releasing and transforming the energy it takes to stay trapped in them into a positive force that can feed the soul. Transmuted negative energy has the power to fill us with the enlightened consciousness of pure happiness.
“When people live as part of the mass, nobody can help them; they are so intermingled that you cannot separate one atom from another. On the level of the mass they are all the same. People can only expect to meet with favorable influences when they rise from the mass, not before. Influences affecting the mass are only unfavorable; they are influences that keep it down. There are favorable influences that help individuals to get out, but they can only help men who stand a little above the mass. We can expect help, but only on a certain level; for what would be the value of our efforts if someone could take us by the ears and drag us up? If we become conscious, it is the same as having will on a higher level; and if we can ‘do’, we can isolate ourselves from many of these planetary influences which affect the mass.”
Psychology has the potential to be one of the West’s great contributions to the world mind. Unfortunately it has failed to fulfill its promise because it makes two terrible mistakes: it assumes that we are already conscious, and it takes the unconscious to be a reflection of the conscious “waking” mind. How can this be so if we are actually asleep in our so-called consciousness, as so many great spiritual teachers throughout the ages have stated? True wisdom, which is knowledge of the self, should lead to consistency in human behavior, for without that we shall remain instruments for the unconscious creation of fiwther chaos in the world, rather than being a blessing to ourselves and others. So study of the psyche is not simply a mental exercise or a dry indulgence in seeking information, but a practical solution to understanding ourselves and, by extension, our fellow human beings. This understanding of self and others is a result of knowing why you think and act the way you do.
To be unaffected by the collective mindset and unconscious behavior, the programming that turns people into compliance automatons within the social trance, we must become masters in our own houses. This we do by constantly moving our center of gravity, the focus of our attention, away from the peripheral circles (in our diagram of the psyche) containing weak “i’s,” and starting to inhabit the circles of consciousness closer to the center. This is where the power to master life resides within us. By progressively moving
“Go and proclaim liberty through all the land unto the people thereof!” The “land” is our body-mind organism, which is made of the elements of the Earth. And we seek liberty by freeing our consciousness from the automatism of being ruled by the untold myriads of thought impulses roaming not just in our mind, but in the world mind of which we are a part. It is up to us to say to the forces of delusion within ourselves, and the illusion through which we must operate to have our lives.
The meaning of salvation is the shift and change from lead consciousness into gold consciousness or (Christ Consciousness or Buddha Consciousness). The work of Christ is to draw people into greater God-consciousness, and to experience the salvation hidden within themselves (self-salvation) by mastering psychophysical techniques which lead to definitive enlightenment. Spiritual awakening is a journey that gradually shifts the center of gravity from an ego-based consciousness to a consciousness based on the higher imagination.
The salvation of man lies in the transformation of his mind leading to the vision of eternity as the sole and absolute reality. Salvation is not only about saving one’s soul; it is also about learning how to seek liberty from the illusions of life, a quest that can never be achieved without knowing where one stands in their faith.
What´s is the ordinary mind of man and what is connected to it and what´s controlling it?
⦁ Lead consciousness
⦁ Desire consciousness
⦁ Mass consciousness
⦁ Beta brain waves
⦁ Maya consciouness (the veil of ignorance)
⦁ Fear-based consciousness – low vibrational frequency
To become free from the lower material ego-body-consciousness one need to change, transmute and transform the energy pattern that´s creates bondage to the Matrix and bondage to the veil of ignorance.
ALCHEMY :— This signifies the production, by unperceived processes, of the higher qualities from the lower ; that is, from the baser metals, or lower mental qualifies, the precious metals, or higher mental (silver) and buddhic (gold) qualities, are by transmutation produced. Also, the process of puri-fication by fire, whereby out of earth (lower nature) there is made gold (higher nature).
The lower nature (earth) gives birth to the higher nature (gold). This is the Divine Alchemy in which the black earth of ignorance appears to be transmuted into the gold of Wisdom. ” The transmutation of the normal physical consciousness of man into the divine consciousness was the magnum opus on which the true alchemists were en-gaged, and much that is grotesque imbecility in the directions and recipes they have left behind, if we read it simply as nineteenth-century chemists, becomes beautiful spiritual philosophy in strictest harmony with the laws governing human spiritual evolution, when we put a symbolical construction on the quaintly expressed formulle relating to coctions and distillations and the mercury of the wise, and fiery waters and fermenta.
“The prime object of alchemy was held to be the production of the Philosopher’s Stone ; that perfect and incorrupt substance, or ‘noble Tincture,’ never found upon our imperfect earth in its natural state, which could purge all baser metals of their dross, and turn them to pure gold. The quest of the Stone, in fact, was but one aspect of man’s everlasting quest of perfection, his hunger for the Absolute. . . . Gold, the Crowned King, or Sol, as it is called in the planetary symbolism of the alchemists, was their standard of per-fection, the ‘ Perfect Metal.’
Towards it, as the Christian towards sanctity, their wills were set. It had for them a value not sordid but ideal. . . . Upon the spiritual plane also they held that the Divine Idea is always aiming at Spiritual Cold ‘—divine humanity, the New Man, citizen of the transcendental world,—and ‘ natural man ‘ as we ordi-narily know him, is a lower metal, silver at best, a departure from the plan ‘ ; who yet bears within himself, if we could find it, the spark or seed of absolute perfection, the ‘ tincture ‘ which makes gold.. . The art of the alchemist consists in completing the work of per-fection, bringing forth and making dominant, as it were, the ‘ latent Bold-ness’ which ‘ lies obscure’ in metal or man”.
The Higher Self must be born in the soul in order that its dross may be turned into pure gold. A symbol of the spiritual vision awakened in the soul, which recognises the inner meanings of the sacred scriptures ; for the meanings are already engraven on the secret tables of the heart. ” In the same Kingdom of Christ all things are inward and spiritual ; and the true religion of Christ is written in the soul and spirit of man by the Spirit of God.
“This process of transmutation, this rebuilding of the sell on higher levels will involve the establishment within the field of consciousness, the making central for life,’ of those sub-conscious spiritual perceptions which are the primary material of mystical experience. The end and object of this ‘inward alchemy’ will be the raising of the whole self to the condition in which conscious and permanent union with the Absolute takes place ; and man, ascending to the summit of his manhood, enters into that greater life for which he was made.
Through the purifying and transmuting Spirit the higher qualities healed the Soul by means of the offer-ing up of the desires ; and whatever the higher nature offered up, that was transmuted, and it became a spiritual quality which passed into the evolving Soul. And because the spiritual qualities are transmuted desires therefore they are desirable.
The higher emotions which contend against the desire-mental qualities, arise upon the buddhic plane (or Christ Consciousness) as a result of aspiration from below, and are contiguous to the ” river of life.” They are above the mental qualities, and are co-ordinated by Wisdom.
The Divine Alchemy in which the black earth of ignorance appears to be transmuted into the gold of Wisdom. Humans is made of Earth subtance of ignorance and this may be the leaden consciousness that can be refined, transmuted and transformed into gold consciousness.
For centuries, the holy grail of the alchemists’ pursuit was to forge ‘the stone that is not a stone’. It has been called many things throughout the ages, including the ‘pearl of great price’, the ‘white stone by the river and the ‘sword in the stone’. Although it goes by many names, its sole function has always remained the same. The Philosopher’s Stone is a catalyst, said to transmute invaluable lead into valuable gold.
Over the centuries, the search for the Philosopher’s Stone has consumed the lives of many, counting Sir Isaac Newton, Carl Jung and St. Thomas Aquinas as members of a fraternity that devoted much of their lives studying alchemy. The pursuit is even purported to have taken the life of Newton, whose body contained massive amounts of mercury due to his alchemical pursuits. To understand alchemy and the pursuit of The Stone, you must view it from two perspectives. The first view relates to the world without, while the second, to the world within. The first is the well-known material alchemy. Their quest was to create elemental gold out of base metals, such as lead.
The promise of great riches to the alchemist who accomplished this feat lured many into field. However, their quest proved ultimately futile. We now understand that only nuclear reactions within stars or particle accelerators can produce the energy required to transmute elements. However, the science of alchemy does not end there The second is esoteric or divine alchemy. The esoteric alchemist’s aim was to transmute the kw metals of ignorance into the gold of awareness.
The objective was to transmute leaden consciousness into golden consciousness. It was to transmute bondage into freedom and poverty into prosperity through a direct rapport with the Higher Self. It was to dissociate from the lower self, the Ego, and associate with the Higher Self, or Spirit. The esoteric alchemists called this shift in identification The Great Work’. It is this life transforming shift in identification that was the real gold that the esoteric alchemists sought.
The Philosopher’s Stone – the latter was said to be the catalyst for the transmutation of lead to gold. In alchemical writings, this was often viewed as a metaphor for the transmutation of the self from the crude ego-bound person to the awakened spiritual human. So. where is the knowledge that allows us to reclaim our capacities of clairvoyance, healing and rejuvenation? It is in our cells, our “genetic memory banIcs.”This resonates with the old alchemical assertions that the lipid” is inherent within the lead; and that the processes of transmutation will “free” the gold within the lead.
Another correspondence to the alchemical transmutation of lead into gold concerns the human aura. Changing the leaden” gray habit-enslaved person into the ‘golden’ radiant spiritual human being. Spiritual treasure has always been viewed as a kind of inner gold; and spiritual alchemy’s goal has always been the transmutation of the self.
The word “enlightenment; another of the promised gifts of the Philosopher’s Stone, means “to be filled with Light; and this is the primary purpose and function of Azeztulite—to bring the Nameless Light—the saura agni. the Sun in darkness of the Hindu rishis—into full expression in the world through us.
Then the transmutation of our personal “lead” into spiritual gold” can begin. The process of cellular reattunement —the repatterning of the liquid crystal structure of our own organism—can proceed. in part, on a subconscious level. simply by our exposing ourselves to the Nameless Light and being open to its influence.
Planet Earth has been conditioned to a certain frequencies of light. It block cellularly these light waves through thought-form shields and contracting emotional patterns [ fear]. The cellular consciousnesses are therefore unable to properly learn and expand, resulting in a state of ignorance. Azeztulite carries energies and frequencies of Light that help release the shields and blocks [habits], healing ignorance and aiding in cellular rejuvenation and expansion.” We can participate in overcoming the old patterns of ignorance by witnessing and actively releasing our ‘contracting emotional patterns” (e.g., fear and judgment). We can learn to release fear and its ilk by going to our heart, dwelling there, finding the truth within and living from that truth.
Spiritual Alchemy – Transmuting Our Inner Matrix
Alchemy can be defined as any magical power or process of transmuting a common substance, usually of little value, into a substance of great value.’ Early alchemists are best remembered for their attempts to transmute lead into gold. Over the centuries, the concept of alchemy has grown from its foundation in metallurgy to encompass psychological and spiritual transmutation. Dr. Carl Jung’s work, for example, focused on the alchemical transmutation of shadow into light, or the transformation of leaden aspects of the self into enlightened, golden aspects of the self. And modern spiritual traditions invoke the power of alchemy in the transmutation of the self from a singular inward-turning consciousness to one that is awakened, dynamic, and open to the subtle energies around us.
Traditions of energy healing—that is, activating, supporting, or unblocking the body’s own subtle energy fields to facilitate healing and well-being—can be seen as a form of spiritual alchemy. In restoring a balanced flow of energy through the body, energy healing brings us back into alignment with universal energies, or the Source from which all form and energy emanate. Thus aligned, our consciousness opens; our inner matrix meshes with the world around us, and we are drawn to the path toward our highest self. If we intend to undertake the spiritual alchemy of our own inner matrix, we must begin by exploring what that matrix is made of. That conversation begins with the concept of vibration.
There is no political alchemy by which you can get golden conduct out of leaden instincts. (Spencer 1969: 669–70). For individuals, then, the path of progress is always open; steep and difficult, especially at first. There will never be a crowd gathered round this gate; “few there be that find it.
The alchemical steps which lead to the making of gold were processes in their own bodies and built up and vitalized organs. This body of gold was to be transmuted out of the ordinary body, which is like lead. The symbols of transmutation: Both the body and the psyche can be transmuted, or refined and perfected, by means of a regenerative transformation which is psycho-spiritual alchemy.
Alchemy— The science of alchemy is the philosopher’s stone, the key to the mystery of life. Mystical” refers to revelations of supra-rational character concerning the origin, activity and destiny of the soul.
Those who have read something about alchemy will know that the fabled Philosopher’s Stone (believed to be capable of prolonging life indefinitely and transmuting lead to gold) was said to appear in three stages. The initial dark phase (nigredo) signified unenlightened matter, and could refer to most of the Earth’s dormant rocks, which are spiritually asleep. The second or white phase (albedo), signified a state of spiritually awakened matter, capable of attuning to spiritual Light and awakening the alchemist to his or her higher destiny.The third and final phase of the development of the Philosopher’s Stone is the red phase (rubedo), in which the Stone has fully developed all of its powers. In its red phase, the Philosopher’s Stone is believed to supply the alchemist with power over his or her own longevity, and the ability to heal others and transmute matter from one state to another.
Man’s inner self hides various latent and active abilities which expand his being, his consciousness, beyond the physical. It has also been pointed out that the familiar reference of turning base metal into gold is a metaphor referring to the psychological transmutation of turning the leaden aspects of our mind into the golden strands of consciousness.
The art of alchemy is shrouded in mystery and intrigue. In a historical sense, the chemical reactions and mathematics explored by early alchemists gave rise to the modern science of chemistry. But even amidst the birth of a hard science, alchemy followed a spiritual directive. Today the notion of alchemy has mostly been reduced to the search for the philosopher’s stone. It has been veiled as a romanticized treasure hunt, one that possibly yields unimaginable wealth and eternal life. The true work of the alchemist, however, isn’t oriented around the physical world; it is a spiritual journey that uplifts and refines the heart.
Literature has favored a technical approach to alchemy. Obscure tomes are littered with arcane symbols and complex rites and formulas depicting the Great Work of the alchemists. However, alchemy could also be seen as an art so simple that it could be written on an emerald. Alchemy is not a process to be explored with reason alone, for it is the process of reuniting our heart with the divine mind. Thus, the master alchemist is our own heart. Listening to our heart and actively working to remember its union with Source are the only tasks we need to perfect.
When we stay engaged in spiritual practice, our life begins to change. These shifts may be small at first—almost imperceptible—but will grow exponentially with diligence. The outcome of healing the heart center is a return to Source, the source of all love, and this change is so radical that it empowers the heart to transfigure our entire life to become congruent with this spiritual perspective. As ego dissolves, the conventional separation between heart and mind yields to a state of perfect heart-mind unity, and, similarly, other tokens of duality or conflict in the material world are reworked into the truth of unity.
The process of raising consciousness beyond the limits of duality and into oneness is a lesson in alchemy. Historically, alchemy focused on the processes by which we might transform base metals into precious metals, such as lead into gold. Although many historical alchemists pursued the literal transmutation of one substance into another, the core principles of alchemy reflect spiritual transfiguration, with physical changes being a secondary manifestation of the inner changes taking place. In healing the heart center, we are brought to the cusp of this evolutionary process. Once we arrive at this plateau, we must make a concerted effort to rise to the next level in growth. This is where we stop identifying with the world of the material plane altogether and find our awareness moved into the realm of the unseen. Even the word spirit denotes an invisible essence, something that is just out of reach or comprehension in the physical world. The heart recognizes this quality, and embracing it yields dynamic change in our life.
Spirit is the basis for inspiration. It is literally the act of being filled by spirit, and it applies equally as well to the breath as it does to creative pursuits. In both instances we empty ourselves in order to receive the blessings of life itself. Medieval texts describe “spirits” as vapors or energy fields originating from the heart, not unlike how the heart center, or Anahata, of ayurvedic tradition is closely linked to the air element and to the breath. Whichever view you choose, the heart orchestrates our existence, as it is at the center of our physical and nonphysical anatomy.
The very hollowness of our physical heart reminds us to become empty as the alchemical crucible. By focusing on a spiritually oriented paradigm of the heart, we start to lose our attachment to the mundane, dualistic world. The leaden consciousness of the slumbering mind is transmuted into its golden, luminous state of perfection: the heart-mind that identifies with its own holiness. In this awakening, we cultivate a direct, continuous relationship with Creator, and through this relationship, unconditional love transforms everything that it touches in our lives.
The stones that support the process of heart-centered alchemy have uplifting, opening, and evolutionary energy. These crystals are often described as “high-frequency” stones, for they have tangible effects that border on becoming overwhelming, especially when we are not quite ready for them. Use them with respect and a modicum of caution, as it is easy to overload the energy field when being introduced to these alchemical gemstones. These Stones for Alchemy of the Heart accelerate our spiritual growth. They clarify and strengthen our connection to Source and speed up our processes of manifestation, growth, and healing. As they broadcast their energies into our aura, these gems fine-tune and elevate the consciousness of the heart, assisting it in broadening and strengthening its influence. When the heart is fully awakened, it can be harnessed to transmute any aspect of our existence into its highest potential. Thus, the pinnacle of healing the heart can be considered the noblest form of alchemy.
The individual frustrations and social tragedies of our time are leading men of conscience and goodwill to search for some alembic that will transmute our leaden instincts into golden conduct.
For alchemy truly was a profound marriage of science and spirituality. Its actual aim was for the alchemist to transmute from a state of “leaden” earthly awareness to one of “golden” spiritual perfection. And its core philosophy is that an underlying and all-pervasive energy or consciousness connects everyone with everything, all with all, mind with body, and biology with psychology.
Within the individual, it is coming into true wholeness. In an interior alchemy, our leaden, fragmented self is transmuted into gold, its true nature and highest expression. Whether we then are immortal, as the alchemists predicted, is a mystery beyond knowing.

Transmutation of the human identity into lasting awareness of the Self cannot take place unless it is preceded by a process of individuation.
The true alchemical trnasformation is the true gold of conscious realization of the Self, redeemed from the leaden matter of its unconscious existence – a emergent evolution, an alchemical vessel that takes our leaden thoughts and turns them into gold- a flame burning and purifying the ignoble leaden condition until it reaches the sublime golden state
The ordinary state of the body and ego is the slumbering state of leaden consciousness, so civilisation has been kept in this state of mind for eons, thosuends of years, generation after generation by the controllers of this planet.
The slumbering state of the veil of ignorance may be the leaden consciounsess that´s keeping humankind trapped and imprisoned within matter, and prevents the spark of life to become enlighten. “This resonates with the old alchemical assertions that the lipid” is inherent within the lead; and that the processes of transmutation will “free” the gold within the lead.
Man’s inner self hides various latent and active abilities which expand his being, his consciousness, beyond the physical. An alchemical process can occur whereby the leaden ego is transmuted into the gold of the Self.

Blessings is said to set in motion a series of neurobio-logical shifts within the brain of the recipient by which previously dormant functions of the frontal lobes are activated; this eventually results in a new enlightened perception of reality.
We cannot activate the future circuits of our CNS/RNA-DNA systems until we start developing a new language for it Meditation activates the inner Language of Light. Consciounsess is Light, and Light is Spiritual Intelligence. Meditation is like building a spiritual bridge were spiritual energy or electricity can flow through the system. Meditation activates the lamp and electricty and activates dormant light codes of higher level of consciousness. Meditation activates this spiritual alechemy and meditation it the experience that will make the lamp to shine brigher and brigher. It has taken thousends of years of conditioning to downgrading gold consciousness to the lead consciousness, and it will take some time re-connect, re-program to re-store this inner temple.
Language of Light and DNA Light Codes Activation
Each of us holds light codes in our energetic body that are connected with our DNA, these light codes are pre-set to activate higher consciousness at different stages of one’s life. Everyone’s are different; you can speed up the activation with Light Language, meditation, light body activation, and with assistance from inner guides, and one also activates these light codes during the travel to your home star during mediation.
On your journey toward self-realization, you start out as an apprentice Alchemist. Eventually, you will acknowledge the urges and impulses that compel you to seek knowledge that will empower your transformation.
To accelerate the process of attaining the ‘golden consciousness’ that unlocks the full might of your Inner Power, requires the presence of a catalyst. The most powerful catalyst in the metaphysical Universe is the Philosopher’s Stone. The Stone will accelerate your growth exponentially and grant you access to true power.
According to medieval alchemists, the key to activating The Philosophers Stone is with a substance they called Vitriol. The word Vitriol derives from the Latin word vitreus, meaning glass, referring to the glassy appearance of the sulphate salts. For example, blue vitriol is copper sulphate and green vitriol is iron sulphate. Vitriol was so important to the alchemists because it is extremely corrosive. In fact, it can dissolve every metal it encounters, except for the one that they were seeking — Gold. Gold is the only metal that can resist the corrosive action of Vitriol!
Pay particular attention to the wording on the outside of the emblem, which says Visita Interiora Terrce Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapideni. Upon closer inspection, you will notice that it is also an acronym spelling V.I.T.R.I.O.L. This then is the secret formula to producing the esoteric alchemists Vitriol. So what does it mean?
Translated, it simply says ‘Visit the interior of the earth and, by purifying it, you will find the hidden stone’. The interior of the earth is a metaphor for consciousness or awareness. So, to forge the stone, you purify your awareness to the point that mind is transcended entirely. That is, to enter the state of ‘no-mind’, also known as ‘cessation’.
Hence, the Philosophers Stone is not a thing, not a stone, but the state of mind that transcends mind and its polarity altogether. It is to abide in the domain of First Cause, of Pure Awareness itself. During these brief windows of cessation, you achieve the integration of the part with the whole, the local with the non-local, the finite with the infinite. The contemplative traditions refer to this state of being as Cosmic or Unity Consciousness. You experience the brilliant radiance of your own true nature, Pure Awareness itself. Like Vitriol, Pure Awareness dissolves everything in its presence, except for true gold. As a result of repeated exposure to the Stone, you take the individual (part), infuse it with the Universal (whole), and take both back to your everyday life. It results in the ultimate realization of your essential whole/part nature. To produce the Stone is to unite with your wholeness and to open a window to the causal domain of the metaphysical Universe.
Amrith in ancient sanskrit refersing the secretion of the pineal gland. following the yogic metaphor, even as a tiny drop of this nectar may, under proper conditions, influence all the glands and chakras and confer enlightenment. Spiritual alchemy has been used to describe spiritual practices from Ancient Egypt, and elsewhere which lead to transformation and realization in which all apparent opposites—masculine and feminine, heaven and earth, divine and human, the whole and the part, the visible and the invisible; body, heart, mind and spirit-are reconciled, integrated and made whole. The underlying principles of the universal human concept are the same as those that guide the evolution and development of the universe and life itself.
The core alchemical maxim as above, reveals what we learn about the atom teaches us about the solar system, and what we see in natural processes around us reveals the pattern of our own inner development. Edgar Cayce explained in reading (137-181) that every physical being is composed of atomic force, and each atom is a universe in itself, with a mind of its own, under the supervision and influence of the body’s mental faculties. The process of spiritual transformation is a part of the Great Work which is at the same time a spiritual realization. This fact is very often overlooked in alchemical studies claiming alchemy to be wholly a spiritual discipline (Sadhana). In order to obtain the Elixir man has first to triumph over obstacles which culminate in the production of the Philosopher’s Stone which has the property of transforming base metal into gold.
The best authority on spiritual alchemy is our inner guidance and our awareness that when we meet our master, God is the force listening. As soon we see the master, we will steer ourselves toward inner peace, put our light on the map that shows our unfolding path, and attract God’s grace by allowing our inner self to reflect Divine Peace. The journey to inner peace takes time, patience, persistence and faith. After we have gone within and transformed our lead to gold, we will naturally attain the real peace just by direct and constant awareness of God.
The Foundation of mysticism teaches symbolically the fundamental unity of all substances and their inherent faculty of transformation. To the alchemist, the faculty of transformation has a universal meaning. This miraculous power of transformation went far beyond the Philosopher’s Stone, which is supposed to fulfil all wishes or the Elixir of Lift which guaranteed an unlimited prolongation of earthy life. He who experiences this transformation has no more desires, and the prolongation of earthy life has no more importance-for him who already lives in the deathless. That Elexir gained is gained by the way of miraculous powers loses in the moment of attainment all interest for the seeker, because he has grown beyond the worldly aims which made the attainment of powers desirable. In this case, the means sanctify it into a higher aim.
Without a living Master spiritual alchemy wanes, as a lamp goes out when the oil is exhausted. The real Master always teaches man that God is within him, and he always shows his devotees the exact way to God realization and helps them to Self-realization. For this very important reason a living Master is always essential.
Man is steeped in illusion. and he cannot free himself from this illusion. He forgets his origin and he does not understand the Universal Absolute. However, if this situation did not exist, there is no reason why the overself should come as an Avatar (God man) at all. What exists as a reality is only one, but what we see is manifold. What is real is the supreme-Light. This Supreme-Light is the splendour of the Self. That has been called the Light of Oneness. This light of oneness is the Light of the Sell which is the embodiment of Bliss. You can only experience the embodiment of Bliss and it is not possible to exhibit it in any other manner. You are the image of the Supreme Self; the image that is reflected in the body that is part of Nature. It is to discover in and through this agitated world the Peace that is your birth-right and utilize that peace of the illumination of the heart, which will reveal the splendour of the Self which you really are. The devotee must so act so that the heart of the guru melts at his devotion. Only that will cleanse the mind of evil and vice. If man develops devotion and steady faith, he will achieve the glory of Self-Realization.
The Divine alchemy transmutes human clay into something noble and indestructible, that makes from a base substance a precious spiritual distillation. Love is the path, the love of the person for his creator, the individual for the Divine, the man for God. Only in this way does inner alchemy of Divine love transmute the entire existence into a Divine fire with a Divine purpose. Whereas chemistry deals with scientifically variable phenomena, the alchemy constitutes the hidden ESSENCE of all religions. Alchemy teaches the latent forms of things (TRUE ESSENCE) according to their truth and not according to their appearance. If consciousness is transmuted from an ordinary (lead like) level to a subtle (gold-like) level of perception, the TRUE ESSENCE, can be realized as the highest love.
True alchemists have actively sought the universal Medicine, which, ultimately sublimated, becomes the Elixir of Life, the Fountain of Youth and the key to Immortality in a spiritual and a physical sense. This Elexir rejuvenate the human body into an incorruptible “BODY OF LIGHT”. The Adept (he who hasattained the Gift of God) would then be crowned with the triple crown of Enlightenment, Omniscience, Omnipotence, and the joy of Divine Eternal Love. But the very few among the few have succeeded in reaching the ultimate goal. The gold-making is relatively of little consequence comparable to the super-power obtained by the great sufis, which are important by-products of high spiritual attainment.
Through the gift of prophecy that through certain techniques of ecstasy reached by long exercises of meditation, the soul of man acquires some of God’s power. It is on that assumption that Alchemical Activity and Transformation are based. Anyone who does with repetition experimental prayers, meditations of Devotion and Love; changes his own personality and acquires divine power by which he will succeed in producing Alchemical Transformation. God is the highest and greatest that no body can conquer. Divine Love has a great inner value. This inner value is the greatest treasure, it is loving to everybody and hostile to no one. Change Yourself, the heavenly wisdom says, from a dead Philosophical Stone into living Philosophical Stone.
Within one’s Self but not from his ego, is everything which he needs and which he wrongly seeks outside. The light which we must find within us belongs to God who has put it into us. So the truth is not to be looked for in our ego but in God which dwells within us. There is no God except God and in Him is the whole of existence.
By finding the inner truth within ourselves, all doubts get slowly dissolved. In the alchemical sense, the melting of our false egos and putting them into an inner melting pot, out of which comes the one inner truth. We have to begin with ourselves.
The soul in its chaotic, unregenerate state is lead.
The Philosopher’s Stone is the Divine Name, in contact with which the soul in lead is transmuted into gold which is its true nature. This true nature is revealed unveiled, and realized by the practice of dhikr. The alchemical work thus symbolized spiritual realization. The essential work is a transformation of that which is base into that which is noble.
Finding the “hidden stone” and the soul journey; 1. Meditation is the experience, 2. Alchemy is the tool for transformation, 3. Sel-realization is the consciousness/awareness to choise. Liberation is the goal, 5. Mind programming is the fueling ingredience/the spiritual food
Humans have two consciounsness, so there may therefore also be two alchemist of the human thinking system. One negative ego mind alchemist that programs the mind with fear and negativity, and the other alchemist is the Divine alchemist of Consciounsess. If the inner Divine trying to enlightens and uplift the mind, so does Satan darkening the mind by dumbing down the masses to keep them in the state of ignorance or keep them in ordinary “lead consciouness” and prevent it to be transformed from lead to gold consciouness or Christ Consciouness.
The ego has become the God of this world, and it may be Chemtrails is a result of this ego-outer-external alchemy to gain control over humanity.
Satan and God as two alchemist who can create its own alchemical formula to gain power of mind
By retrieving the sparks of light trapped in our bodies and uniting them with the light of consciousness freed from egotistical control, we create a brilliant beacon to the universe.
When we experience the world in an ordinary state of consciousness, it is radically extemal to us
Then from within, a power works on the outer to make it a conscious instrument so that finally the inner and the outer get fused into one another and become one!
We can learn the art of transmutation, that process philosophers and alchemists dreamed of long ago by means of which we might turn the lead of ordinary consciousness into the gold of self-realization. Transmutation of the human identity into lasting awareness of the Self cannot take place unless it is preceded by a process of individuation.
Hermeticism could have to do with transmuling the “lead” of ordinary experience into the “gold” of consciousness.
The first three levels of consciousness are considered to be ordinary states of consciounsess , and the fourth one is said to be a nonordinary state of consciousness.
The fourth state of consciousness is the nonordinary state of nondualiv or turiya. Upanishad defines turiya as: The fourth state is not that which is conscious of the subjective, nor that which is conscious of the objective, nor that which is conscious of both, nor that which is simple consciousness, nor that which is all-sentient mass, nor that which is all darkness. It is unseen, transcendent, the sole essence of the consciousness of self, the completion of the world. Turiya is said both to permeate and to transcend the three states of ordinary consciousness. The subject of the first three states of consciousness is the ego, while the subject of turiya is the higher Self.
From a alchemical understanding the three first levels of consciounsess may also represents the three first physical chakras that needs to be transformed. From a chakra perspective the fourth heart chakra is the Christ Consciousness, so the fourth state of consciousness is the transformed fourth chakra or Christ Consciousness. Then we have turned the lead of ordinary consciousness into the gold of self-realization or Christ Consciousness.
Meditation is a two-way process. It is a lifting of the conciousness upward and then a holding of it there to receive that which comes down from a higher level. The mind and the heart must be absolutely stilled. Only when so stilled can an know his true purpose and destiny. Only when so stilled can his consciousness perceive the higher.
Meditation is not an exercise. It is an experience.
With all the faculties, inner and outer, under control and mastered, the consciousness is made to rise higher and higher, until it experiences.
The guided meditation involves visualizing the progression of dying from the “outer dissolution” of the senses and elements of the body to the “inner dissolution” of consciousness, culminating in the arising of the clear light or ground luminosity of pure awareness. What would ordinarily be considered the moment.
“Bardo,” as noted, means in-between state. So whenever we’re in between two states, no matter what the scale, we’re in a bardo state. These two states could be living and dying or being awake and being asleep, but they could also be the just-past moment of thought and the moment about to come. Thus “bardo” includes the gap between the cessation of one moment of thought and the arising of the next moment.
Every process, transformation, transmutation is in the middle of change, and this includes self-realization.
The purpose with meditation is the progressive expansion of human consciousness and awareness.
The veil of ignorance and alchemy
Piercing the veil of ignorance is a process of meditation and alchemy
The veil of ignorance represent darkness and negativity and this veil is what creates separation between minds and consciousness, or separation between inner and outer consciousness
Through meditation and alchemy one start an spiritual light transformation process
Alchemy is the alchemical-spiritual process that activates the light within us.
Meditation is a two-way process. It is a lifting of the conciousness upward and then a holding of it there to receive that which comes down from a higher level.
Meditation activates an alchemical and spiritual transformation and changing the lower outer/ego awareness (darknes of mind), into inner higher self light consciousness.
There is a time to adore the rose and there is a time to probe its secrets. If you would become the rose, if you would unfold the petals of your own Christ consciousness, you must be willing to pursue the alchemy and the geometry of creation. Without the freedom to create, there is no freedom. The way of freedom is to find the path that leads directly from the place of the soul in the seat-of-the-soul chakra to the place of the Christ in the heart chakra.
When one remove the veil of ignorance from the eyes, one will behold that which many have sought and few found.
The veil of your understanding, who are wrapped in the darkness of ignorance
Alchemy and Christ Consciousness
One can´t reach Christ Consciouness without alchemy and meditation
Meditation activates transformation, and transformation is alchemy, and alchemy removes and purifies, and transmutes lead into gold.
Meditation and alchemy enlightens and strenghtens the inner lamp-Christ Consciounsess.
The letter is the Philosopher’s Stone which is the elixir to Immortality. It is symbolized as a substance that can turn lead to gold. The lead symbolizes man’s basic dense self. The Philosopher’s Stone is the knowledge to transform the basic self to awaken to Christhood. Gold symbolizes the Christhood of being Awake.
The guided meditation involves visualizing the progression of dying from the “outer dissolution” of the senses and elements of the body to the “inner dissolution” of consciousness, culminating in the arising of the clear light or ground luminosity of pure awareness. What would ordinarily be considered the moment.
The Philosopher’s Stone is an allegory used as a legendary alchemical substance that is used to transform base metals into gold. It was sometimes believed to be an elixir of life. useful for rejuvenation and possibly for achieving immortality. This was a sought out goal in western alchemy. In spiritual alchemy the philosopher’s stone would bring enlightenment. Alchemy was the very early step into understanding chemistry. The main difference between the two is that chemistry is motivated by science whereas alchemy was motivated by the belief in the supernatural. In other words chemists believe that there is a reproducible and rational explanation for why things happen. whereas alchemists tended to believe that there were certain magical or charmed things that would get the job done for them. Alchemist did chemistry; they just had a different view of it.
This also applies with spiritual alchemy which is really biochemistry. We are still learning about the human body. Spiritual alchemy or Inner alchemy such as the practices of meditation and yoga for example were once considered magical practices. Today it is known by science how meditation and yoga benefits us. It is based on biochemistry. The ancients knew in order to become spiritual required proper diet, exercise and meditation. They may have not understood the science behind it. Our body chemistry has to do with how we feel our personality our whole well-being. Biochemistry directly affects our psychological well-being.

There is a time to adore the rose and there is a time to probe its secrets. If you would become the rose, if you would unfold the petals of your own Christ consciousness, you must be willing to pursue the alchemy and the geometry of creation. Without the freedom to create, there is no freedom. The way of freedom is to find the path that leads directly from the place of the soul in the seat-of-the-soul chakra to the place of the Christ in the heart chakra.
The human ego fears the moment of choosing, the moment of reckoning when the soul will rise up, fired by the flaming fountain of the purity of the Divine Mother, to proclaim its liberation from the claptrap of the noisemakers with their perpetual distractions luring the soul from the direct route to the center of being.
There is a time to adore the rose and there is a time to probe its secrets. If you would become the rose, if you would unfold the petals of your own Christ consciousness, you must be willing to pursue the alchemy and the geometry of creation. Without the freedom to create, there is no freedom.
The way of freedom is to find the path that leads directly from the place of the soul in the seat-of-the-soul chakra to the place of the Christ in the heart chakra. Let the consciousness of a planet and a people rise! Let them be elevated by the power of the resurrection of the Christed one to the hidden chamber of the heart, where the Christ Self of each one is the true teacher and mentor.
Through the Divine Spark within him, which is really his real Self, man is connected with the Infinite. So long as man has doubts and fears or disbeliefs, this special power is not available. As soon as man realizes the truth of his relationship to the Infinite, he passes from weakness to power. Union with God is established by neutralizing the restless thought- and desire-waves of the consciousness.
The spirit of God wants to come out of the earth symbol. So Spirit becomes the gems and the stones, and then it becomes the trees and plant life. The roots represent the inner condensed rays projecting out of the universal rays of cosmic energy. The branches represent the condensed outer rays emanating from the inner rays. In the animal and human nervous system the condensed rays of the nervous system become apparently free from cosmic energy. Man’s outer nervous system was created out of the soul’s desire to free itself from the bondage of the cells, and to be released in Omnipresence. The outer nervous system of man keeps the soul busy with the limitations of matter. The superman with-draws all rays from the nervous system and floats them through the spine and lets them out through the medulla oblongata into the infinite sphere of Light.
The body is heavy, a bond, a chain, a prison for the soul; the soul is the true man, which tends to free itself from the body in order to achieve its true nature.
The state of the Soul! Go beyond the subconscious and conscious minds and go to the Super-conscious, where the Electricity of God flows into the Spine through the Medulla Oblongata; and diffuses into the spine, limbs, organs, tissue and brain. Do not in any way be a slave to the senses! Meditation is a practice in the Presence of God!
You become what you contemplate, and by dwelling on the attributes, qualities and potencies of the Infinite within you, you are no longer in the world, or mass mind. You are then in tune with the Infinite, and you are living at higher levels of consciousness, enabling you to find peace in this changing world.
As man realizes his Oneness with Creative Mind, he is released from the bondage of false thinking. Man has to realize his inner nature, that is, his spirituality which reveals oneness with the ultimate.
It is only when man realizes his oneness with the Infinite and believes that Omnipotent Power is at his disposal, that the Spiritual Power within becomes available. So long as man has doubts and fears or disbeliefs, this special power is not available. It is his, but his state of heart and mind prevents him from either realizing the presence of the Power or making use of it. Before the machinery of a workshop can run it must be connected up with the engine room. In the same way, man, before he can live the new life, must become one with the Infinite Life and Power.
Through the Divine Spark within him, which is really his real Self, man is connected with the Infinite. Divine Life and Power are his, if he realizes that they are his. So long as he is ignorant of his oneness with the Divine Source of all life, he is incapable of appropriating the This Power, then, is Divinity’s, yet it is also man’s, but it is not revealed to him until he is fit to be entrusted with it. It is only when man realizes his oneness with his Divine Source that he becomes filled with Its power.
Our higher self s capable of aligning with Source.Man is not separate from his Divine Source and never has been. He is, in reality, one with the Infinite. The separation which he feels and experiences is mental, and is due to his blindness and unbelief. Man can never be separated from Spirit, for he himself is Spirit. He is an integral part of one complete whole. He lives and moves and has his being in Divinity (Universal, Omnipresent Spirit), and Divinity (Spirit) dwells in him.
The majority of people are unaware of this intimate relationship with the Divine, and, because they are unaware, or because they refuse to believe it, they are, in one sense, separated from the inner life of Divinity. Yet this separation is only in their thoughts and beliefs, and not in reality.
Man is not separated and never can be, yet so long as he believes that he is separate and alone, he will be as weak and helpless as though he actually were. As soon as man realizes the truth of his relationship to the Infinite, he passes from weakness to power, from death unto life. One moment he is in the desert, afar off, weak, separate, and alone; the next, he realizes that he is nothing less than a son of Divinity, with all a son’s privileges and powers. He realizes, in a flash, that he is one with his Divine Source, and that he can never be separated. He awakens also to the fact that all the Power of the Infinite is his to draw upon; that he can never really fail, that he is marching on to victory.
It will thus be seen how great is the power of man’s thought. While thought is not the power of the Spirit, it is the power by which man either connects himself up with the Infinite Power, opening himself to the Divine Inflow, or cuts himself off and separates himself from his Spiritual Source. Thus, in a sense, man is what he thinks he is. If he thinks he is separate from Divinity and cut off from His Power, then it is as though this were really the case, and he is just actually existed apart from Divinity.
If he believes and thinks that he is a mere material being, then he lives the limited life of a material being, and is never able to rise above it. But if, on the contrary, he thinks and believes that he is a spiritual being, then he finds that he possesses all the powers of a spiritual being. The powers within you are infinite and by having faith in themselves humans can be connected with the Infinite Source .It depends each individual to harmonize body, mind and spirit to reach the state of higher consciousness the body, mind and spirit connects him to the Sacred Flame, thus making him potentially a Divinity in the making.
We’ve been programmed by current culture and media to believe that we can’t thrive without constant distraction of cell phones, computer games, social media, and the latest music. These build up the illusion that there isn’t anything significant going on within us if all this barrage of input ceased—which is very far from the truth. The glories of Divine potentials exist at a subtle level of consciousness. These are as powerful as the roaring ocean when we develop our skills of opening to them. They will most likely remain hidden to those who tune their consciousness mainly to the mass mind and the latest popular fads. The sacred treasures of higher potentials reveal themselves freely to those who approach with quiet respect, clarity, purity, and patience. There is a conduit of powerful energy that opens up from one’s crown center at the top of the head and gradually accesses up toward the higher Spiritual levels of consciousness which come down to meet it. This is one’s connection to higher realities. It is one’s lifeline to expressing brilliance and profound capacities. This pathway to God Consciousness is a superhighway that cuts right through the chatter of the mass mind and limited thinking and self-doubt. It is a direct access route to the powers of one’s Higher Self and God.
As you ascend spiritually, you will automatically avoid the negative experiences of the mass mind.
The Almighty has implanted genius within the soul of everyone and what we need to do is to unearth that inner genius and cause it to shine forth. We will never do this while we look to others for guidance. “To thine own self repair, wait thou within the silence dim, and thou shalt find Him there.”
All the power and intelligence of the Universe is already within, waiting to be utilized. The Divine Spark must be fanned into a blaze of the living Fire of your own divinity.
Self-reliance is the word to dwell on. Listen to your own voice; it will speak in terms that are unmistakable. Trust in your own self more than in all else. All great men have learned to do this. Every person, within his own soul, is in direct communication with the Infinite Understanding. When we depend on other peo-ple we are simply taking their light and trying to light our path with it. When we depend on ourselves we are depending on that inner voice that is God, speaking in and through man.
We are not limited by actual boundaries, but by false ideas about life and by a failure to recognize that we are dealing with the In-finite.
Limitation is an experience of the race, but it is not the fault of God, it is the fault of man’s perception. And to prove that this is so, let any man break the bonds of this false sense of life and he at once begins to express less and less limitation. It is a matter of the growth of the inner idea.
Arjuna is to become aware of himself as existing only in God and as acting only by the power within him, his workings only an instrumentality of the divine action, his egoistic consciousness only a veil and to his ignorance a misrepresentation of the real being within him which is an immortal spark and portion of the supreme Godhead.
In Gnosticism, again, man contains the divine spark, the inner seed of heavenly light imprisoned in the darkness of the material world and the physical body, a spark which can escape from its prison to be reunited with its source in the godhead.
Union with God is established by neutralizing the restless thought- and desire-waves of the consciousness. Then realization that we are an eternal, indestructible soul will give us strength to solve the problems of life.
The devotee must know how to calm the senses, i.e., take consciousness away from them, and how to withdraw the life force from the sensory-motor nerves, which are the conductors of disturbing sensations. Thus he will know how to enter the eternal life, the ever conscious, ever existing, ever new bliss cf the soul. The life force in the nerves keeps the soul entangled with messages of sensations from the eyes, ears, hands, and so forth; but when the life force is plucked from the eyes and cut off from the hands, and from all conscious-ness of the body, the soul’s attention becomes freed from the distracting messages of the senses. Then the soul becomes cognizant of its divine nature. Only then is a state of complete concentration reached.
FOUR STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS
The first state of consciousness is marked by complete identification of the self and its well-being with the struggle for and acquirement of material and physical satisfactions. Such a person does not try to understand the pow-er behind his brain, without which no gainful or pleasurable activity can be carried on.
The second state is reached when a person, by occasional concentration on higher things, tries once in a while to get away from his preoccupation with the sensory world.
The third state is reached by deeper concentration; the yogi arrives at a middle point wherein he enjoys glimpses of inner Bliss; his spiritual and mater-ial tendencies are now evenly matched, as a result of steady effort at concen-tration and of proper schooling in the habits of silent concentration.
The fourth state comes when the consciousness becomes completely identi-fied with the only good or God, and the yogi goes beyond the oppositional states of good and evil. Awakening in God, the yogi finds that the dual states of good and evil have vanished, just as sorrowful or joyous dream experiences of dis-ease and health, bereavement and fulfillment vanish upon one’s awakening from sleep.
According to ancient Hindu scripts, consciousness evolves in each individual from physical plane to vital plane to mental plane. If one could rise above the mental plane they can reach the plane of creative intelligence (budhi) and then that of bliss (ananda).
The fourth state – non-dual or thoughtless state. The fourth state is described as a state in which thoughts cease and mind is still. There will be a feeling of great happiness or bliss (Ananda) and there will be no external or internal impulses reaching from peripheral sensory systems. In yoga sutra describes the fourth state as the one in which “the individual is firmly established in his original state. In all other states, the individual identifies himself with his mind and thoughts”. That is, in fourth state, an individual eliminates the limitations by his body, senses, mind, thought and reaches a thoughtless and infinite state of pure awareness.
The ego is the outer wrapping and includes our body and how we present in the world. It includes our mind and how we are conditioned to think. The ego holds our will to survive. From its experience, it has preferences of likes and dislikes. The ego is conscious of our personality and how we identify ourselves in relationship to others on the Earth. The ego acknowledges itself. The ego understands it is separate from other people. It understands it will die and one day no longer exist as it does right now. The ego is tied to temporary experience, consciousness is not. When we push beyond the awareness of one’s ego, one expands in infinite consciousness. One becomes available to the concept: if I am not my body and I am not my personality, then who am I? One’s spark of light merges into higher states of expanded consciousness. One opens doors. We exist in this world, but can also take refuge in higher frequencies during meditation where the body and the mind cannot go. In these higher expressions of our consciousness, we can restore, balance and renew.
Consciousness is not prana, although consciousness moves within pranic (energy) flow. It is awareness and can move across multi-dimensions. It is without body, shape or form. Consciousness uses thought and intention to navigate.
The Yoga of Knowledge usually does not deal with chakras at all. It goes directly to the pure Self which resides in the heart; not the heart center of the astral body but the spiritual heart on the right side of the body, which is behind the causal body and our point of contact with the universal consciousness transcending all the bodies.
The fourth chakra is affectionately known as the heart chakra and it is considered to be one of the most important energy. This chakra is associated with intuition and the ability to access the ageless wisdom or bank of knowledge in the depths of universal consciousness. During the waking state one cultivates the ability to dissolve the energies into the central channel and bring them to the heart chakra . This gives rise to the four emptiness experiences , the fourth of which is the clear light consciousness. The Christ Consciousness is located at the fourth chakra.
God does not always appear before us just because we have meditated deeply for several years, or for whatever we consider a proper length of time. If there is some flaw in their love, even saints who have meditated for incarnations may be chastened by God’s failure to appear. But to those who make no demand, who just keep on striving, saying, “Lord, I will wait for you, no matter how long it takes,” He will come. The greatest factor for success with God is to have that resolute desire. “Out of one thousand, one seeks Me; and out of one thousand that seek Me, one knows Me”
If you sincerely follow this path of the Masters, Self-Realization Fellow-ship will take you to your highest Goal, the Cosmic Beloved–God!
Anyone who receives this message with an open heart shall not go away unfulfilled. His heart shall become a wonderful cup of realization that will gradually expand to receive the ocean of Infinity, the power of the eternal Spirit.
A wish implies a helpless desire of the mind. A desire is a stronger wish; it is often followed by fitful efforts to manifest itself into action. An intention or a determination, is a definite, strong desire expressed very forcefully once or twice through action for the accomplishment of a certain purpose. Such a determination, however strong, is often discouraged after one or perhaps sever-al unsuccessful efforts. But a volition consists of a series of continuous, undiscourageable, unceasing determinations and acts revolving around a desire, until it becomes dynamic enough to produce the much-craved result. “Will and act until victory” is the slogan of all volitive activity. No matter how impossible of accomplishment his goal may seem, the man of volition never stops repeating conscious acts of determination to achieve it, as long as he lives.
WILL POWER GOVERNS THE UNIVERSE
Does not will power govern evolution? Coercion or compusion never brings about growth. It is freedom that accelerates evolution. Too much dependence upon what is external or objective throttles the possibility of progress and nips in the bud the potent factors of evolution. Progress presupposes the existence of the power of growth from within; and that a subject will evolve by adjusting itself to its environment, or by adapting its environment to itself. Unless he trains his will by application of scientific techniques such as Self-Realization Fellowship offers, man’s power of volition atrophies.
A WILL–A WAY
A strong will, by its own dynamic force, creates a way for fulfillment of its intention. By its very strength, the will sets into motion certain vibrations in the atmosphere; and nature, with its laws of order, system, and efficiency, thereupon responds by creating favorable circumstances. Will derives its greatest strength from an honest purpose, lofty motives, and a noble solicitude for doing good to the world at large. A strong will is never stifled; it always finds a way.
GOD’S WILL AND YOUR WILL
God did not make us inert automatons, but instruments of His will, endowed with free choice to use that power as we please. God’s will is not guided by whim or temptation. His will is guided by wisdom.
DIVINE WILL HAS NO BOUNDARIES
The only savior of man is a constantly progressive dynamic will. Human will, however powerful, is still limited by the circumference of the body and the boundaries of the physical universe. Man’s will can initiate successful activities in the body, or on earth, or in finding out the mysteries of distant stars. But divine will has no boundaries; it works in all bodies, in all things. God said: “Let there be light,” and there was light. God’s will is working in everything. When by deep meditation and by wisdom-guided, unflinching, never discouraged determination we can successfully keep our volition revolving around all our noble desires, then our will becomes one with divine will.
Man’s will ordinarily works within the boundaries of his own little circle of family, environment, world conditions, destiny, and prenatal and postnatal cause-and-effect governed actions. But divine dynamic volition can change destiny, wake the dead, move mountains into the sea, and divert the course of planets.
Many seekers fail to find Truth because they lose themselves in the forest of theology, moving from one thicket of theory to another until they feel utterly bewildered. Prove that you are a true seeker by determining now, from the very beginning, that you will give careful, practical attention to the techniques and principles you have judiciously selected; and that with the help of your chosen teacher, or guru, you will keep on learning and practicing until you are able to see the results in yourself.
The guru’s help is important, for while you may find true religious principles expressed in good books, you can never realize their full meaning until you see them manifested in the life of an enlightened teacher. Such a guru can help you when you are attuned to him, even though you are not in his presence. Now you are just starting on your journey toward the goal of Self-realization. Persevere; and when you feel a growing satisfaction, an ever increasing peace, wisdom, and assurance from within, you will begin to realize that the best religion consists in your continuously progressing perception of your constantly growing inner happiness, felt in meditation.
Meditation is the science of reuniting the soul with Spirit. The soul, descending from God into flesh, manifests its consciousness and life force through seven chakras, or centers of light, in man’s cerebrospinal axis. (These are the “seven stars” and “seven churches” spoken of by St. John in the little-understood book of Revelation in the Bible.) Encased in the bodily prison, the soul consciousness and life force become identified with the physical vehicle and its mortal limitations. Scientific med-itation awakens the soul consciousness in the seven cerebrospinal centers. In a state of divine recollectedness, the soul intuitively realizes its immortal nature and origin. -The various- progressive states of soul awakening are accompanied by an ever increasing accession of inner peace and joy. In the most exalted states, soul and Spirit become reunited in ecstatic, blissful communion, or samadhi.
By meditation, then, we connect the little joy of the soul with the vast joy of the Spirit. Meditation should not be confused with ordinary concentration. Concentration consists in freeing the attention from distractions and in focus-ing it on any thought in which one may be interested. Meditation is that special form of concentration in which the attention has been liberated from rest-lessness and is focused on God. Meditation is concentration used to know God.
Whether you see the light of the spiritual eye or not, however, you should continue to concentrate at the Christ Consciousness center between the eye-brows, praying deeply to God and His great saints. In the language of your heart invoke their presence and their blessings.
Divine consciousness is omnipresent. In order to attune one’s consciousness to it, it is necessary first to expand the mind by meditation on some aspect of God’s infinite nature. Visualization is not realization; but visualization is an effective aid in deepening one’s concentration, which is essential for the deep meditation that yields realization.
Through daily practice of the foregoing instructions, you can prepare yourself for the practice of the basic techniques of concentration and meditation that are given in later Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons. These scientific techniques will enable you to dive ever more deeply in the great ocean of God’s presence. We all exist at this very moment in that ocean of Spirit; but only by steadfast, devoted, scientific meditation may we conscious ly perceive that we are individualized soul waves on the vast ocean of God’s bliss.
The meditation period should last at least thirty minutes in the morning and thirty minutes at night. The longer you sit, enjoying the state of meditative calm, the faster you will progress spiritually. Carry into your daily activities the calmness you feel in meditation; that calmness will help you to bring harmony and happiness into every department of your life.
GOD, THE ORIGINAL SOURCE OF ENERGY
The medulla oblongata is the original point of intake of the life force as it comes from God. The medulla oblongata is called the “mouth of God” because that is where God ”breathes” life force into man. Do not confuse this with the Bible passage that reads:
“God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life: and mu became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7).
An explanation of the foregoing verse is given in the Lessons on Genesis. a all the body parts only the medulla oblongata cannot be operated upon by the surgeon. Why? Because it is the center of all the centers of life in the brain and spine. It is the one center through which the life force enters the body. The heart, brain, and cervical, dorsal, lumbar, sacral. and coceygcal centers of the spine are minor centers. acting merely as distributors of that life force they receive through the medulla oblongata.
HOW TO RECHARGE THE BODY WITH ENERGY
Science has proved that everything is being constantly recharged by cosmic energy. The human body is surrounded by a halo of conscious cosmic energy. medulla oblongata is the antenna of the bodily receiving station that receives the radiographed cosmic energy from Cosmic Consciousness through the bodily radio operator — will. Just as nut can use the invisible vibratory waves of radio to control fur distant ships on the sea, so God, through vibrations of Ills intelligent cosmic energy, supplies our bodies with life force without any visible connection.
God created the original cosmic vibration or energy which, once started, became perpetual: and by wireless will power ve can draw upon It and bring It into the body through the medulla oblongata. This cosmic energy, the same energy out of which we and everything else In the universe were created, surrounds and permeates all creation, all the time. It enters the body through the *mouth of God” (medulla oblongata) and Is the Invisible “word” that sustains all life.
We can learn to live more and more by that eternal supply of cosmic energy which is always all about us, and thus ever available to us for recharging the body with vitality. One may use the knowledge gained from these instructions to make the body fit in every way. A body that is free from disease and weakness presents less resistance to the meditation methods and practices by which Self-realization is attained, and by which the human consciousness, as well as the body, is raised to the fatigueless state.
Self-realization may be and sometimes is attained even by people who are struggling with sick and otherwise imperfect bodies; but it cannot be attained unless one can concentrate and meditate uninter- ruptedly upon God. Since it is difficult to concentrate and meditate while the aches and pains of the body continually have the attention of the mind, the path to Self-realization is made moth easier if the imperfections of the body are eliminated and if the operation of its functions are so harmoniously arranged that the mind need not at any time be interrupted in meditation because of the demands of the physical body.
By constantly holding the peaceful aftereffects of meditation in mind; by believing in eternal life instead of the illusory changes ve behold in this life; and by feeling the ocean of immortal Bliss (God) underlying the changeable waves of experiences of past lives, and the waves of perceptions of childhood, youth, and age in this life, we can bring about not only the perpetually youthful consciousness of the soul, but also maintain youthfulness of body, if so desired. When the body is found to be, not isolated from Spirit, but a number of rising and falling waves of vibrating currents in the ocean of Cosmic Consciousness, we may implant in the body the perpetually rejuvenating power of Spirit.
Self-realization is the knowing in body, mind, and soul –that we are one with the omnipresence of God; that we do not have to pray that it come to us, that we are not merely near it at all times, but that God’s omnipresence is our omnipresence; that we are just as much a part of Him now as we ever will be. All vwe have to do is improve our knowing.
Self-realization means knowledge of one’s own soul and of its oneness with the Father.
So long as it dwells on the material plane, human consciousness cannot encompass the universal Christ Consciousness no matter how desirous it may be of doing so. By practice of the scientific concentration and meditation techniques taught in the Self- Realization.
The sincere student can increase and refine the receptivity of his consciousness so that he may ultimately perceive the Christ Consciousness universally present in every atom of creation. St. John referred to this expansion of the human consciousness to receive the divine when he declared of Christ:
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (St. John 1:12).
Thus, according to the Bible, all men may discover their actual oneness with Christ Consciousness. By intuitive Self-realization, or knowledge of his own soul, man becomes aware of his oneness with the Christ Consciousness. Those who attain the highest Self-realization know without any doubt that they are “the sons of God.”
PHYSICAL BODY A BUNDLE OF MOTIONS
The physical body is a bundle of motions, a combination of cells composed of moving molecules. which in turn are made up of whirling atoms. composed of protons. electrons. neutrons, positrons. and mesons. whirling in the relative-ly immense space within each atom. These minute, semi-intelligent forms are manifestations of sparks of thought from the Infinite Intelligence. God.
Underlying the chemical motion in cells are dancing waves of molecular motion. beneath which surge waves of atomic motion. Below the atomic layer are waves of electronic and protonic motion, hiding in turn bright waves cf danc-ing sparks, the vital forces. Underlying these expressions 4 life energy are waves of sensation. and deeper still are waves of thought. feeling. and will force. Hidden at the very bottom of all these waves of varied motions of life is the ego.
Ego is soul in the delusive state of being identified with the physical body.
Although the body appears to be a solid mass of limited proportions, occupy-ing but a small area of space, the cells that compose the body are manifestations of a vast ocean of molecular waves. The molecular waves of the body arc mani-festations 4 the still greater ocean of atomic waves. Atomic waves are mani-festations of the immense ocean of electrons, protons and other atomic particles. The waves of protons, electrons. etc.. are manifestations of vaster oceans of vital force. The vital force (or life energy) is a manifestation of the measure-less powers of all forms of subconsciousness, superconsciousness. Christ Con-sciousness, and Cosmic Consciousness.
As a manifestation of chemical motion the body appears small, but since these chemical motions of the bodily cells are actually condensed waves of Cos-mic Consciousness. the body is potentially vast and omnipresent. Tissue is the general name for all the different cellular groupings of which body organs are composed. The same invisible force that makes tissues of some cells so arranges other cells as to form hard bones.wonderfully worked into a skeletal frame around which flesh can cling:and others form the bloodstream.
It is strange that the body has to be kept alive by external forces of food, chemicals, and sunshine, instead of simply being flooded with vitality from the inner source of Cosmic Consciousness. But the body, being a mass of cellular motion, cannot live without motion; its cells have to be kept stirred with life by external food forces, and kept dancing with vitality derived from the internal Source.
POWER OF WILL
Concentration on the muscles, as in the practice of mechanical physical exercises, tends to make one think of himself as a physical being only. Self-Realization Fellowship instructions teach the science of concentrating on the inner life energy and will power and thus awakening one’s consciousness of his subtle spiritual nature. Strength comes from within: not from the musciles. Life is sustained from the powers within: it does not depend solely upon food or exercise.
Self-Realization Fellowship instructions teach one to spiritualize the body–to perceive it as a reflection of Spirit and to think of oneself as the divine life energy that sustains the body, rather than as a mere physical vehicle consisting of bones and muscles of a certain-volurrre-and weight. Yuu wilt-bre own how energy can be made to permeate the body by tension, and how it can be withdrawn from the body by relaxation.
Life energy is expended in all processes of thought, feeling, and physical activity. Self-Realization Fellowship techniques, when practiced correctly, replenish the energy by tapping its source, the medulla oblongata; life energy can be continually supplied to the body from this source by stimulating the medul-la oblongata center with conscious will. The power of will bridges the gulf between the life energy in the body and the Cosmic Energy surrounding it. By keeping in touch with the Cosmic Source of life energy it is possible to work with-out fatigue.
All our limbs and muscles are moved by the exercise of will and life energy. The flow of life energy into the sensory nerves is caused by divine will and our own will together; the flow of life energy into the motor nerves is caused by our own will.
The greater the exertion of the will, the greater the flow of life energy into a particular body part.
All true scriptures have a threefold meaning, because they are intended to benefit mankind on the three planes of human existence: the material, the mental, and the spiritual. The scriptures are indeed divine wells whose wisdom-waters man may draw to quench his threefold thirst for material, mental, and spiritual fulfillment.
Physical well-being is not necessarily a prerequisite for spiritual perfection. It is desirable, however, because it is more difficult to make the effort to achieve spiritual perfection when physical inharmonies are present. The aspiring devotee who is not well physically may become discouraged, because it is not easy to concentrate or to meditate uninterruptedly upon God when bodily aches and pains are clamoring for attention.
A body that is relaxed and calm conduces to mental peace, which is neces-sary for meditation, the spiritual art of communing with God. Therefore one of the first steps in a balanced program of spiritual development is relaxation of the mind and body–that is, the calming of the activities of the heart, lungs, cir-culatory system; and of the restless movements of the muscles stimulated by nerve impulses from the brain. By reducing the amount of energy expended in restless (and often unproductive) muscular and mental activity, relaxation frees energy to be used for the highest and most constructive purpose: concentration on the Divine Indweller.
God is infinite omnipresence. He is present equally in wisdom-sparkling diamond souls and in charcoal mentalities dark with ignorance. It is because God has given men independence to choose between error and truth that some people keep their minds transparent with the purity of knowledge and love, while others keep their mental houses dark with dogma and inharmony. God has endowed man with His own power of liberty: we may shut God out, or through meditation, logic, and right actions in the struggle of life, receive Him.
That some people know less about God than others is not due to God’s limiting the flow of His power through man, but to man´s not allowing the Lord’s light to pass through him. People who are stricken with the disease of ignorance–the cosmic delusion of separateness from God–may be healed by contacting the Christ Consciousness (the Son or Intelligence of the Father present in every atom of creation) by scientific meditation, devotion, and faith.
Mental relaxation should signify complete mental rest. One may achieve this by practicing going to sleep at will. Relax the body and think of the drowsiness you usually feel just before you fall asleep. Then try actually to reproduce that state. Use imagination, not will, to do this. Most people do not relax even while they sleep. Their minds are restless; hence they dream. Therefore conscious mental relaxation is better than relaxation that is the byproduct of passive physical relaxation, or sleep. In conscious mental relaxation one can either dream or keep dreams off his mental moving picture screen, as he chooses.
No matter how busy we are, we should not forget now and then to free our minds c ompletely from worries and all duties. They should simply be dismissed from the mind. We were not made for them; they were made by us. We should not allow them to torture us. When beset by overwhelming mental trials or worries one should try to fall asleep. If he can do that, he will find upon awakening that the mental tension has been relieved, and that the worry has loosened its grip. We need to remind ourselves at such times that even if we died, the earth would continue to follow its orbit, and business would be carried on as usual; so why worry? When we take ourselves too seriously, death comes along to mock us and remind us of the brevity of material life and its duties.
Mental relaxation consists in the ability to free the attention at will from nagging worries over past and present difficulties; from constant consciousness of duty, dread of accidents, and other haunting fears; from greed, passion, evil or disturbing thoughts and attachments. Mastery in mental relaxation comes with faithful practice in freeing the mind of all thoughts at will and then keeping the attention fixed on the peace and contentment within. One can then divert the attention from worry to peace through meditation.
Hence, the devotee who aspires to develop uniformly and steadily in spirituality should always calm the mind with the practice of concentration, keep the breath quiet by proper breathing exercises, preserve the vital essence by self- control, avoid templation by mixing only with good company, and keep the body quiet and not in perpetual motion and restlessness.
Everyone needs to let go of his worries and enter into absolute silence every morning and night. At such times one should first try to remain for one minute at a time without thinking negatively, fixing the mind on the peace within, especially if worried. Then try to remain for several minutes with a quiet mind. Following that, think of some happy incident; dwell on it and visualize it; mentally go through some pleasant experience over and over again until you have forgotten your worries entirely.
Just as there are degrees of physical relaxation, so there are degrees of mental and metaphysical relaxation. The term “metaphysical” is used here to indicate those states which go beyond the physical and mental realms.
Metaphysical or super-relaxation consists in freeing the human consciousness entirely from its identification with the physical body, money, possessions, name, fame, family, country, the world, and the human race and its habits. Metaphysical relaxation means disengaging your attention by degrees from con-sciousness, subconsciousness, the semisuperconscious state felt after meditation, and Christ Consciousness; and in identifying yourself completely with Cos-mic Consciousness.
Metaphysical relaxation therefore consists in releasing consciousness from the delusion of duality and truly resting the mind by keeping it identified with one’s own real nature: unity with Spirit. Man has hypnotized himself into thinking that he-is a human being, -whereas-in reality he is one-with God.
Resurrect your soul from dreams of frailties. Resurrect your soul in eter-nal wisdom. What is the method? It includes many things: relaxation, self-control, right diet, fortitude, an undaunted attitude of mind, regular meditation with practice of scientific concentration and meditation principles. You may fail at first, but do not acknowledge defeat. To acknowledge defeat is greater defeat. You have unlimited power; you must cultivate that great power.
Meditation is the greatest way of resurrecting your soul from the bondage of the body and from all your trials. Meditate at the feet of the Infinite. Learn to saturate yourself with Him. Your trials may be heavy, may be great, but the greatest enemy of yourself is yourself. You are immortal; your trials are mor-tal. They are changeable; you are unchangeable. You can unleash infinite power: and shatter your finite trials. Resurrect yourself from weakness, ignorance, consciousness of disease, and above all, from the clutches of undesirable habits that beset your life.
The soul’s nature is Bliss, a lasting inner state of ever new, ever changing joy that eternally bestows Bliss that does not fade. One who has been made blissful by this joy of the soul, finds that the Bliss endures, even when he is passing through trials of physical suffering or death. Desirelessness is not a negation of joy, but the finding of fulfillment of all desires in the all-satisfying joy of God.
You must attain self-control in order to regain the eternal heritage of all-fulfillment lying within your soul. First, by meditation, give your soul the opportunity to manifest Bliss, and then, constantly living in this state, do your duty to your body and mind and the world. You need not give up your ambitions and become negative; on the contrary, let the everlasting joy, which is your real nature, help yoll to realize all your noble ambitions. Enjoy noble experiences with the joy of God. Perform real duties with divine joy.
You are immortal and are endowed with eternal joy. Never forget this durimg your play with changeable mortal life; This world is but a-stage on which you play your parts under the direction of the Divine Stage Manager. Play them well, whether they are tragic or comic, always remembering that your real nature is eternal Bliss, and nothing else. The one thing that will never leave you, once you transcend all unstable mental states, is the joy of your soul.
God is that Supreme Intelligence which governs everything!
Some people do not realize that there is a difference between force and intelligence. Electricity is a force, but unless we put it into a lamp, it cannot give a light that can be used. Intelligence puts it into the lamp. All the forces of nature cannot satisfactorily work by themselves without the guidance of intelligence. The Cosmic Factory of Intelligence works in a coordinated way. Steam has power to make things move and fire converts water into steam. These are only two of nature’s forces, but they, of themselves, in their unharnessed natural state, do not accomplish anything importantly use-ful; but when harnessed by intelligence, and directed rightly, they can be made of great service to mankind. The earth and the whole universe seem-ingly have been placed on a routine so that human life is made possible. This cosmic schedule, “The rhythm of the spheres,” is the product of Divine Intelligence.
Spiritual teaching is a comprehensive system –a method to bring the individual into complete and balanced harmony with the great plan of the universe. There are many forces at work seeking to destroy this balance, to produce disease, fear, poverty, failure, and unhappi ness. These forces attack the individual to upset his physical, mental, and spiritual balance. The great secret of mastering these forces was known for ages by the great Hindu saints, and it enabled them to live far beyond the usual term of life in perfect youthfulness of body and mind, and in perfect spiritual harmony.
Secret fear creates tension and anxiety, and brings ultimate collapse. We must have faith in our ability, and hope in the triumph of a righteous cause. If we do not possess these qualities, we must create them in our own minds through concentration. This can be accomplished by determined and long -continued practice. Fortunately, we can start practicing any time and any place, concentrating upon developing those good qualities in which we are defective. HF we are lacking in will power, let us concentrate upon that, and through conscious effort we shall be able to create strong will power in ourselves. HF we want to relieve ourselves of fear, we should meditate upon courage, and in due time we shall be freed from the bondage of fear. Through concentration and meditation we make ourselves powerful.
Man’s attachment to matter keeps the soul confined to the body prison and prevents it from finding freedom in God–in the realm of eternal Bliss. The ego attempts to satisfy through mate-rial channels the soul’s constant, insatiable longing for God. Far from accomplishing its objective, ego-driven sense gratification only increases man’s misery. The soul’s hunger can never be appeased by indulging the senses. When man realizes this and masters his ego–that is, when he achieves self-control–life becomes glorified by God-Bliss while he is still in the flesh. Then instead of being enslaved by material desires and apptites, his attention is transferred to the heart of Omnipresence.
The fall of consciousness and our regression in awareness took place, a veil of darkness was constructed within our collective consciousness that acted to conceal the knowledge and power of the Universe from us for a time. This veil, known as the Abyss or bottomless pit (names given to it at a time when there was obviously much fear as to what was happening, is an amazing construction that reflects completely our needs to evolve and learn responsibility. The Abyss is an illusionary barrier of darkness between our Earthly consciousness of physical mortality, personality and ego, and our spiritual consciousness of the Universe and its infinite energy resources. It acts to separate the two so that our Earthly consciousness can pass through the real experience it needs to learn responsibility.
We are kept within its boundaries to experience, expose and eventually exorcise the potentially destructive elements of our nature, while the Universe outside is left relatively undisturbed by these destabilising experiences. Individually and thus collectively we each must Face and pass through the Abyss to reunite our complete nature, and to gain the awareness of our eternal spiritual nature and the Universe this may come to serve. The darkness of the Abyss reflects back to each of us the weaknesses and fears of our own egos. It is an illusory barrier that we compose by the fears we project, and on the other side lies our spiritual awareness that works to compel us forward and through (`cailing’ us forward).
In the lowest pit of reality, where seekers cannot see the light, it is possible for them to think they will be stuck there forever. They can lose all hope and feel helpless. There may be times when there does not seem to be any possible solutions to their psychic and spiritual setbacks. Since the seekers cannot see the light at the end of the dark tunnel, they search for it in the darkness because they are not in the right place to begin with. In the end, they do not find the hope and confidence they have lost. When this happens, immediately defy the feeling of despair so it does not grow. Replace it with confidence, knowing that you will get out of the darkness. Know that you will succeed against all things. Trust and love. This confidence and positive energy will raise your and raise you out of the pit you fell into.
When you are ready to receive wisdom and break free from the ignorance of the ego, you have to let go of your ego for it stops you (the ego is veil). It hindering you because it is part of you so you are hindering yourself. Once you let go of this ego and think of yourself as equal with all other human beings here upon this Earth-plane, then you will rise into the Light. Then the wisdom will flood through you on whatever you need this wisdom on for you are more than this physical being. Ego and mass consciousness is not equal to divine higher self. It doesn´t mean the higher self is better than ego or mass consciousness, fear and faith aren´t same, darkness and light is not equal powers, pride and grace are not equal ideals.
When inner vibrations raises fear can no longer live in the body.
Fear (the voice of your self-preserving animal nature and rational mind) imagines all the horrors that may lie in that darkness and begs you to turn back to the places and way of life that you know, using any means to justify fear. The evolutionary and soul’s need to know truth and purpose, and to discover our real identity and nature, that compels us on and will not allow us to rest (the calling of your spiritual nature and awareness), tells you that the darkness is just an illusion and that there is a way through in front of you. If you choose to trust this voice, as opposed to that of fear, you will be able to walk forward and cross to the other side, to reach the answers that await and realise your true potential. This is the real step of faith that acts to transform our primary instincts, and I can share from experience, that once you take those wholehearted steps into the unknown, to lay your life on the line, then the darkness dissolves completely and the truth is revealed.
What is the single thing mostly preventing us from discovering the truth and how can we overcome it? Not as close as you would like to be and not as far off as you might imagine. Collective fear is the only thing preventing the veils from being lifted completely. Humans do not fear darkness; they fear a light too bright for their unaccustomed eyes. They shield themselves and avert their eyes to prevent the truth from being told. Humans have become overly comfortable, complacent and agreeable to a reality they have outgrown. It is time to listen to the words heard within so that humans can create a reality based on that rather than responding to the endless external stimuli that greet them daily. The distance between human to God is not outside, it’s the layers of belief systems, social programming, all fear orientated issues, that envelope us hiding our light within.
As they give up their social programs, not only they set examples that its totally safe to shed these boundaries for better future but they as collective trigger humans to see for themselves that these do not serve them any purpose. A slow awakening is taking place, in all humans, when their consciousness is getting clear in the collective burning, of these Twin Flames who are spread over the whole world. When these Twin flames tranmutate, their pain to love they create Love and Light and as they become in sync with balancing of their masculine feminine energies in them their power becomes more potent. So they serve as a big prism of light scattered in different parts of world.
