Alchemists believed that, by applying the universal solvent, any metal could be purified into gold, which was merely the perfect state of all metals. It was thought that even iron, if left to grow in the ground over time, would mature into gold; alchemical practice merely expedited this natural process. Alchemy involved techniques originally developed by craftspeople seeking to create objects of simulated gold, silver, gems, and pearls, as well as by dyers who attempted to counterfeit the rare and valuable Tyrian purple dye. Elements of alchemy also evolved from the demands of medical practice and pharmacology. Alchemy has a second, mystical component. The alchemist sought not only the universal solvent, but the universal panacea or elixir, a miraculous substance that, when applied to the body, had the power to heal or even provide immortality. The elixir allowed for the purification and perfection of the human body, just as the philosopher’s stone affected base metals. Alchemy, then, was a process by which the practitioner sought to uncover divine truths, hidden in nature behind the veil of physical forms.
The uncovering of the occult, the perfection of metal, healing, and immortality were all made possible because of the connections that were believed to exist between the macrocosm, especially the cosmos beyond the moon, and the microcosm, including both the earth and the human body. The alchemist, if pure of spirit and intent, and connected to the greater forces of creation, could rearrange matter and manipulate it into the desired form. Two major challenges are presented in this discussion of alchemy. First, alchemy was not one thing, but many things at the same time; it was never solely theoretical, technical, or spiritual, but was almost always a combination of the three, each in varying amounts. The second challenge is the elusive nature of alchemical practice. Alchemists sought to keep their art a secret, and so wrote treatises in a cryptic style, filled with allusions and veiled secrets Alchemical works were often written under pseudonyms and attributed to gods, goddesses, and heroes of the alchemical world. The authors and dates of manuscripts are not easily discernable; lines of transmission are difficult, if not impossible, to identify. Just as the sources for a single manuscript are multifold, so are the various influences on alchemy as a whole.
Ancient Greek Sources
The roots of alchemical theory can be found in the philosophies of Milesians in the sixth and fifth centuries BCE. From their poleis on the coast of Iona, they pondered the nature of the cosmos. No longer satisfied with mythological explanations for natural phenomena, they developed their own epistemologies. Key to the development of alchemy was the belief in an ultimate substance from which all things are made. Thales believed that the underlying substance of creation was water. Anaximander postulated that a vast nothingness called the “apeiron,” from which emerged a seed, was the source of all creation. Other theories abounded: Anaximenes cast his lot for air, rarified and condensed; Heraclitus of Ephesus, for fire; and Leucippus of Miletus, for tiny particles called atoms. While these philosophers were not alchemists, their theories were essential to the development of alchemical theory. For if there is a single substance from which all matter is made, then copper is in essence the same as gold, with only a different physical appearance.
In the fourth century BCE. Aristotle. like the Milesians. believed in a universal prima materia. Objects in nature were composed of ‘matter.” the underlying substance from which all things are made, and “form”; the qualities impressed upon the matter to create different objects. While the form of objects might change, the matter itself did not. Aristotle postulated that change in matter took place through the shifting balances of the four elements: earth, water, air, and fire. The foundation of the four elements were the four qualities: dry. wet, cold, and hot. The combination of cold and dry yielded earth, cold and wet yielded water, hot and wet yielded air, and hot and dry yielded fire. Aristotelian elemental theory is of the greatest importance for alchemical theory. Not only is all of creation made of the same substance, but the form of matter can be manipulated through processes of combination and dissolution. Belief in an ultimate substance and Aristotelian elemental theory contributed to the understanding of the physical nature of matter. Stoicism, which developed between the fourth and third centuries BCE, explored the spiritual dimension of matter. Stoics argued for the power of pneuma. or breath, in the creation of matter and the generation of all of its physical qualities.
Heavenly pneuma descends to create matter, therefore, within matter is the indwelling nature of the divine. Future Gnostics, Hermeticists, and alchemists would seek to commune with the heavenly pneuma and. through divine revelation, understand the fundamental workings of the physical world. Stoicism introduced the link between the practitioner and the divine. For later alchemists, Stoicism was to provide the foundation for their belief that the state of the practitioner was elemental to the success of the experiment. Only the alchemist who was rightly guided and spiritually pure would be able to manipulate the elements of nature to create noble substances.
The operations of metallic transformations seem to have become ritualised into an expression, primarily symbolic, of death and revivification. But this does not necessarily mean that the adepts of that time no longer concerned themselves at all with practical techniques. If one reads through the texts attributed to Zosimus, one can sec that he thinks the material body of gold is nothing, that the quality of ‘gold’ is independent of the metallic substance which supports this spiritual quality (spiritual because conferred by the action of volatile fugacious vapours), and that this higher spirit is ‘gold ‘, furthermore that when one possesses a material in which this ‘gold quality’ resides (just as one might possess the essential colouring principle of a dye) one thereby has in hand what was later called the philosophers’ stone, and can then ‘tint into gold’, in this way making ‘true gold ‘. It is interesting that there are certain actual definitions of gold in the Hellenistic Corpus, and they confirm all that has been said so far.
They occur in a kind of glossary with which the principal MSS are headed, and they run as follows:
Gold. It is pyrite, cadmia,d and sulphur.
Gold. Fragments and pieces of metals and minerals yellowed and brought to perfection.
Gold is what we call the white, the dry, the yellow, and (materials) tinged golden with an unfading dye.
A few Alchemical and Bible Scriptures symbolism;
If the two do not become one, that is, if the volatile materials do not combine with the non-volatile, there will be nothing of what is expected—unless it is whitened, and the two become three with the white sulphur, which whitens it. Whenever it is yellowed, the three become four—for it is yellowed through the yellow sulphur. But whenever it is made violet—the all becomes one (Crown chakra and unification as One whole)
Taking water of sulphur and a little gum put them in the ash-bath. For thus they say the water is fixed. …Taking one part of our copper, one part of gold, make a flat sheet of the metals melted together and put it on the sulphur suspension and leave for three days and nights, until it is hardened. (For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth) (Symbolic rebirth out of the ashes like the Phoenix Bird)
You will find five parts less one part, clearly because of the [sulphur] evaporating. Likewise in the process of reduction, and in smelting, at the end of its treatment, copper loses a third of its weight.
Copper heated with sulphur and treated with an emulsion of soda and oil and shaken, after receiving this treatment many times, becomes a superior gold, without shadow….
Everyone knows from experience that burning copper before the sulphur does nothing; but if you burn the sulphur (first), then not only does it make the copper shadowless, but it also comes close to gold. … first copper is burned with sulphur, then with the body of magnesia; and you insufflate it until the sulphurous materials escape from it with the shadow. And the copper becomes shadowless. (In chakra text copper is symbolized by the fourth chakra and the third belly-chakra with fire)
THE EARLIEST CHEMICAL MANUSCRIPTS
Though Egypt is generally recognized as the mother country of the chemical and alchemical arts, her monuments and literature have left little of early records to explain them to us. It is through Greek and Roman sources mainly that some of these ideas have been transmitted to In, but the character of the sources is not often such as to enable us to discriminate between the matter derived from Egyptian science and thee confused interpretation or additions of the early Greek alchemists.
At about 290 A.D. the Emperor Diocletian passed a decree compelling the destruction of all works upon alchemical arts and on gold and silver throughout the empire, so that it should not be possible for the makers of gold and silver to amass riches which might enable them to organize revolts against the empire.
This decree resulted in the disappearance of a mass of literature which doubtless would have furnished us with much of interest in the early history of chemical arts and ideas. By a fortunate chance, however, there have been saved to our times two important Egyptian works on chemical processes, the earliest original sources on such subjects (Leyden Papyrus X and the Stockholm Papyrus)
They were discovered at Thebes, and both formed part of a collection of Egyptian papyrus manuscripts written in Greek and collected in the early years of the nineteenth century by Johann d’Anastasy, vice consul of Sweden at Alexandria. The main part of this collection was sold in 1828 by the collector to the Netherlands government and was deposited in the University of Leyden. In 1885, C. Leemans completed the publication of a critical edition of the texts with Latin translation of a number of these manuscripts, and among these was one of the two works above-mentioned. It is known as the Papyrus X of Leyden.
The eminent French chemist and student of the history of early chemistry, Marcelin Berthelot, subjected this work to critical analysis and published a translation into French with extensive notes and commentaries.’ On the basis of philological and paleological evidence, its date is established as written about the end of the third century A. D. It is, however, manifestly a copy of a work previously written, as slight errors evidently due to a copyist are found. That the original is later than the first century A. D. is certain, as there are included in it extracts from the Materia Medica of Dioscorides. The work is a collection of chemical recipes and directions for mak-ing metallic alloys, imitations of gold, silver or electrum, dyeing and other related arts. In 1913 at Upsala, Otto Lagercrantz published the Greek text with critical commentary and with translation into German of a similar Egyptian papyrus, the “Papyrus Graecus Holmiensis.” This work like the Leyden manuscript is a collection of recipes for alloys, metal working, dyeing, imitations of precious stones and similar arts ( text from “The Story Of Early Chemistry”)
the alchemical Papyrus Holmiensis (the Stockholm Papyrus),
From Leyden Papyrus X and the Stockholm Papyrus
The following selections represent the practical or “exoteric” side of alchemical writing with its exclusive concern for the physical and technical processes required to produce an object or substance or to improve that which is “natural” by means of artifice. Thus the recipes illustrate the close connections between early chemistry and metallurgy, dyeing, jewelry making, writing techniques, and various other crafts.
The style is clear, simple, and methodical, vastly different from the highly imagistic allegories of the Dialogue of Cleopatra and the Philosophers and the Visions of Zosimos of Panopolis. If one ignores the persistent uncertainties about substances, measures, and durations of processes, it might be said that here are reasonable examples of technical writing — overlooking, of course, the rather common emphasis on fraud and deception.
Leyden Papyrus X and the Stockholm Papyrus, which bear the names of the cities in which they are deposited, are written in Greek — probably by the same writer — and date from the end of the third century AD. They are, in the words of Earle R. Caley, the translator, “by far the earliest original historical evidence that we have in our possession concerning the nature and the extent of ancient chemical knowledge” (1149).
Leyden Papyrus X includes 111 recipes, often written in an “abbreviated, incomplete form such as workers, more or less familiar with the nature of the process, would use” (1150).
In contrast to the metallurgical emphasis of the Leyden manuscript, the 154 recipes in the Stockholm Papyrus deal with a variety of other chemical arts, such as making dyes and imitations of precious stones.
The Leiden and Stockholm papyri (2nd century) depict the metallurgical procedures as effectively being linked to magical formulas
An intriguing story comes out of eighteenth-century Sweden, when the Scandinavian kingdom was at the height of her power. In 1705 the Swedish general Paykhull
had been convicted of treason and sentenced to death. In an attempt to avert this punishment, he offered the king, Charles XII, a million crowns of gold annually, saying that he could make it alchemically; he claimed to have received the secret from a Polish officer named Lubinski, who had himself obtained it from a Corinthian priest. Charles accepted the offer, and a preliminary test was arranged under the supervision of a British officer, General Hamilton of the Royal Artillery, as an independent observer. All the materials were prepared with great care, in order to prevent the possibility of fraud, then Paykhull added his elixir and a little lead, and a mass of gold resulted which was coined into 147 ducats. A medal struck at the same time bore the inscription (in Latin as usual): (0.A. von Paykhull cast this gold by chemical art in Stockholm, 1706.”
One has difficulty imagining any alchemical process as being successful. But equally, one has difficulty imagining any king, especially King Charles XII, and a British artillery general, being taken in by a charlatan, especially when the charlatan is on trial for his life, and when Charles XII had potential riches to gain. The Swedish royal courtesans and ministers would have literally hovered over General von Paykhull, scrutinizing his every move.
Queen Christina of Sweden (1626-1689) A lifelong student of alchemy and the Hermetic arts, Christina abdicated in 1654 and travelled to Rome, where she renounced Protestantism and converted to the Roman Church. She spent the majority of her remaining years in Rome, where she, like Lady Anne Conway, presided over an active Hermetic circle. Her interest in alchemy is thought to have increased in later life, from 1667 onwards.
Rosicrucian activity emerged from Charles II’s contacts with Queen Christina of Sweden, a student of the occult sciences. Michel Le Blon, her Amsterdam (Netherlands)-based art consultant, was rumored to be a Rosicrucian and author of a tract for the fraternity.° The queen was probably aware that Swedish Rosicrucian networks were currently functioning in the Baltic region.

By the late 17’h century Paracelsian alchemy had attracted a much broader audience through-out Catholic Europe. One of its most notable enthusiasts was Queen Christina of Sweden (1626-89) who practised alchemy through-out her adult life. The Queen had abdicated from the throne of Sweden on her conversion to Catholicism and between 1655 and her death she resided mainly in Rome. Historian Susanna Akerman has commented that the Queen’s interest in alchemy was located integrally within the Rosicrucian intellectual currents. Johannes Bureus, the royal antiquarian in Stockholm, may have allowed Christina to view his Fame e Scanzia Redux (1616) which was his reply to the Rosicrucian Fama Fraternitatis. According to Akerman, Christina had also been contacted by the alchemist Johannes Franck who interpreted her reign as fulfilling Paracelsus’ prophecy of the return of Elias Artista. In his Colloquium philosophicum cum diis montanis (Upsala. 1651), Franck urged the Queen to find the Philosopher’s Stone. In 1652 Christina was offered a magical kabbalistic text by the engraver Michel Le Blon and he also obtained a copy of Jacob Boehme’s prayer book from Abraham von Franckenberg and translated it into French. 21 In Rome the Queen established herself at the Palazzo Riario (today Palazzo Corsini) on the Janiculum hill from where she exerted a
considerable influence on the spread of alchemical practice. She ordered the construction of a laboratory operated by the alchemist Pietro Antonio Bandiera. Leading names to frequent her academy at the Riario included the physician and esoteric scholar Giuseppe Francesco Borri (1627-95), the alchemist Francesco Maria Santinelli (1627-1697), as well as the mathematician, astronomer, astrologer and engineer Giovanni Domenico Cassini (1625 —1712). Even Athanasius Kircher was present on occasion. One nobleman especially swayed by Christina’s intellectual interests was the Marquis Massimiliano Palombara Pietraforte (1614.80) who attended her court from 1656. In 1655-80 at the Villa Palombara on the Esquiline Hill Palombara was constructing the “Alchemical Door” (“Magic Door,” “Door Hermetic,” or “Gate of Heaven”). This monument is said to commemorate a successful alchemical transmutation performed in Christina’s laboratory at the Palazzo Riario. The doorway is embellished by carved emblems including alchemical insignia and Latin devices, some now lost, which have still not been entirely deciphered. The Queen’s interest in Paracelsian alchemy and theosophy is evidenced by the contents of her library. Susan Akerman has noted the presence of works by Italian followers of the Rosicrucians and there are Rosicrucian references in contemporary Italian poetry associated with Christina’s court. The alchemical contents of the Queen’s library included substantial numbers of works by medieval authors who described practical laboratory work. Akerman lists works by pseudo-Geber, Johannus Scotus, Arnold de Villanova, Ramon Lull, Albertus Magnus, Thomas Aquinas, Bernard Trevisan, George Ripley, George Anrach d’Argentine, Johan Grasshof, as well as a copy of the Rosarium Philosophorum.n This collection of practical, but conceptually archaic, medieval texts may be categorised as a “Catholic alchemical library.”
For, the Queen and her advisers, like other 17th century Italian alchemists, demonstrated a marked interest in pre-Paracelsian alchemy. The presence of the pseudo-Lullian works is typical of such a mind-set. On the other hand, Christina also collected works of the newer chemistry in the Paracelsian corpus, as well as Rosicrucian-influenced treatises. Akerman has noted that the Queen’s library included some two thousand manuscripts of a mystical character.
Many of these were the most recent Hermetic texts including Trithemius’ Steganographia (MS Reg. Lat. 1344) and John Dee’s Maras Hieroglyphica (MS Reg. Lat. 1266). There were also older magical books such as parts of a Picairix (a medieval Arabic book of magic) and a Latin kabbalistic work, SeJer-ha-Raziel (MS Reg. Lat. 1300) which described angel magic. There were several thousand printed items including editions of Paracelsus and his followers such as Johannes Thurneysser.
In 1655 Christina gave a large collection of alchemical manuscripts obtained from Prague to her librarian Isaac Vossius. These had once belonged to Rudolf 11 and are currently lodged at the University of Leiden as “Codices Vossiani Chymici.” Akerman has commented on the list of the Queen’s collection that exists in the Vatican (in MS Vat. Lat. 8171) which has a frontispiece illustrated by a bee and a spider and the words, “Mel ibit tibi fel.”
She recalls a similar emblem of a bee, cobweb and rose at the head of Robert Fludd’s treatise, Summum Bonum (Frankfurt 1629), and the words, “Da Rosa Mel Apibus”.
Descartes as a Rosicrucian; it was written by Nicolaes Wassenar, said to be Jacob Wassenar’s father. This book predated Descartes’ move to the Netherlands by four years. Another individual with Rosicrucian associations was Cornelius van Hooghelande, a physician who was interested in alchemy. Descartes enjoyed a long and close friendship with him after moving to the United Provinces. As with the Wassenars, both van Hooghelande and his father were open in their adherence to Rosicrucian ideas. When Descartes went to Sweden in 1649 to serve at the court of Queen Christina — his last, and fatal, move — he gave his private papers to van Hooghelande for safekeeping.
While the correspondence between Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia (1618-80) and Rene Descartes covers topics spanning the range of philosophical inquiry, still it was not written for the public. Early on in the correspondence, Elisabeth is quite insistent that their exchanges be kept private. In concluding her letter of 6 May 1643, she charges Descartes to refrain from making their exchange public,’ and her letter of 10 October 1646 demonstrates that they considered communicating in code. Yet later on, without Elisabeth’s permission, Descartes, through his envoy Pierre Chanut, sent Queen Christina of Sweden a copy of both sides of their exchange on the sovereign good.
Decartes book “The Treatise on the Passions of the Soul” was written in 1645-1646; before its publication in 1649, it was read in manuscript and commented on by Descartes’ friends, among whom were Princess Elizabeth of the Palatinate and Queen Christina of Sweden. In October 1649 Descartes arrived at the court of Queen Christina in Stockholm, where he had to give daily lessons of philosophy to his royal pupil at five o’clock in the morning; within four months his health failed and he died.
But it was an ill fate that took him to the wintry climate of Sweden, for there he became ill and died February 11, 1650. Philosophy. The 22-year-old Christina perversely made the 53-year- old Descartes rise at 5:00 am (commanded by her) to give her philosophy lessons.
Queen Christina abdicated in 1654 and travelled to Rome
Descartes slowed his writing and instead communicated personally with small groups or individuals who sought his knowledge. One such individual was Queen Christina of Sweden, who in 1649 invited Descartes to be her philosopher-in-residence, and he accepted. Unfortunately, the queen insisted on being tutored at five o’clock (on her demands) each morning, and one day Descartes had to travel to the palace before sunrise during a severe Swedish winter.
After only six months in Sweden, Descartes caught pneumonia and died on February 11, 1650. He was first buried in Sweden in a cemetery for distinguished foreigners, but there is more to this unfortunate story: Sixteen years later, his body was exhumed, as it had been decided by various friends and disciples that it would be more fitting for his bodily remains to rest in France; perhaps they did not respect as seriously as he might have wished, Descartes’s belief in the possibility of a disembodied spirit and the existence of mental processes in the absence of any brain.
The French ambassador to Sweden took charge and first cut off Descartes’s right forefinger as a personal souvenir. It was then found that the special copper coffin provided for transporting the body was too short. So the neck was severed and skull removed to be shipped separately. The coffin returned safely to Paris and Descartes’s headless body was reburied with great pomp. The skull had a more sordid fate: It was stolen by an army cap, tain, passed from one Swedish collector to another, and took 150 years to reach Paris, where it was awkwardly shelved in the Academie des Sciences and has apparently remained there ever since.
When Queen Christina of Sweden pleaded with him a few years later to come to her court, he refused. But the Queen was not put off easily.
Her penchant for surrounding herself with scholars had reached the point where it “began to become the object of scorn, railery and obloquy of Strangers; it was in every bodies mouth that she assembled all the Pedants of Europe to Stockholm, and that it would not be long ere the government of the Realm would be managed by Grammarians.”
And now she wanted the most famous of them all—Descartes—to add to her collection. Enticed by promises and praise, Descartes finally relented —not without misgivings—to go to “the land of rocks and bears” for three months.
In the fall of 1649 he set out for Sweden and on his arrival was received by the Queen “with such a distinction as was observed by the whole Court.” Then for six weeks Christina ignored him—supposedly so that he could leisurely “familiarize himself with the genius of the Country.” Although Descartes had planned to stay only three months, the Queen had other ideas.
She appointed him to her Privy Council—obviously an action with long-range implications—and commended him to “compile a compleat body of all his Philosophy,” also a task that would keep him busy for more than a few months.
Descartes accordingly “began to rummish and ransack his Trunk” of notes and writings, but his papers “were all in pieces scattered up and down,” and he never got to put them in order.
Christina had great plans for her newest and most glittering catch. She planned to give him a house in the most southerly and warmest part of Sweden, present him with a title, and best of all, build an academy and appoint him director. Certainly, with all these inducements, it would be difficult for him to leave.
After his initial six weeks of freedom, Descartes was summoned daily to instruct and converse with the Queen. Unfortunately, the sessions began at five in the morning and were held in a large, cold room—not too pleasant an arrangement for a man who was used to staying in bed until almost noon and who hated the cold. But Descartes was either too timid, too polite, or too awed by royalty to complain.
After two and a half months of the new regime, he fell ill with “Feaver, accompanied with an Inflammation of his Lungs”—probably pneumonia. For a week he lay delirious and close to death, and then, on “the 11th of February at Four a Clock in the Morning, Aged 53 Years, 10 Months, and 11 Days,” he became conscious long enough to speak what are purported to be his last words: ‘My soul, thou bast long been held captive; the hour has come for thee to quit thy prison, to leave the trammels of this body; suffer, then, this separation with joy and courage.”
With that splendid speech, he died. He was buried in Stockholm, where Queen Christina was still going ahead with her grandiose plans for the great philosopher—albeit somewhat altered. She wanted to build him a grand mauso-letun, but the French ambassador dissuaded her. Descartes body was later moved to Paris, where it rested for a while before being moved twice more.
Decartes last words: ‘My soul, thou bast long been held captive; the hour has come for thee to quit thy prison, to leave the trammels of this body; suffer, then, this separation with joy and courage.”
The famous movie trilogy ‘The Matrix’ is based on the idea that all of our reality is generated in a computer system of some sort, and the person who has ultimate control over this computer system has ultimate control over our reality and our perceptions. The Matrix is a computer-generated dream built to keep us under control’. If one can control one’s mind, one can, in a sense, control the totality of reality
In this context, theTrinity is the expression of an ego-driven consciousness (a supercomputer), the evil Demiurge and Archon — a projection of artificial intelligence. The Lord Archon has entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent human beings from remembering that they are divine spirits whose real home is the Cosmic Mind or Gnostic Pleroma. The cosmos he creates is a simulation – virtual reality projection in the simulation of a higher dimensional pattern.
The gnosis involves the revaltion of man´s true divine nature and evoilutionary origin resulting in his liberation (at death) from the enslaving material prison of body and world into the higher astral planes of spirit.
In “Gnostic Symbols of the Self” Jung equates the godhead with the unconscious and differentiated matter with the ego or ego consciousness, but in his brief discussion of the Gnostic Hymn of the Pearl he reverses himself. Matter, here in its raw rather than differentiated state, now symbolises the unconscious and the godhead the ego or ego consciousness. Jung stresses that the Hymn obliges human beings to descend to the material world in order to realize their divine, immaterial nature.
Clearly, the descent refers not, as in “Gnostic Symbols of the Self,” to the birth of the ego out of the unconscious but, on the contrary, to the re-entry of the ego into the unconscious for the purpose of raising it to consciousness. The birth of the ego described in “Gnostic Symbols of the Self” is now presupposed and constitutes the beginning rather than the end of the journey.
Matter now not only already exists rather than emerges but also symbolizes the unconscious rather than the ego, which is now symbolized by the godhead. These new equations only reverse, not solve, the problems the original ones posed. First, the return of the newly independent ego to the unconscious should be for the purpose of raising it to consciousness, but in fact the descent of the savior is for the purpose of extricating the divine sparks ensnared in matter.
The Savior’s role involves creating a cohesive force that can break the stranglehold that the Demiurge and archons have on the human consciousness. To generate that cohesion, the guiding self demonstrates to the members of the inner spiritual communities the possibility of refining their cultures by furthering the liberation of the lowly human being
Gnostics believed that God was perfect and pure, living in a realm of light, separated from matter. … In the process, bits of divinity were trapped inside the material universe. Christ was an aeon who inhabited the human Jesus in order to teach human beings to recognize and liberate the divine spark within them.
Trapped in this world and, in particular, within the body, was the spark of divine light which had originated outside the universe but had fallen into this world and become imprisoned. This is analogous to the spiritual center or Self being kept from consciousness by an ego which refuses to recognize the possibility of an authority greater than itself.
“The Heavenly Aphrodite” having “no part with Matter,” the body (these burning cheeks, this pulsing blood) becomes a “garment,” a “corpse,” a “grave,” a “prison,” a “chain,” a “burden” (because it keeps the spark of life from becoming a flame). It also becomes a dangerous “enemy,” the source of disorder, chaos, war, violence (because it disturbs the divine order). Finally a “veil,” a “shadow,” a “night” (because it obstructs our view of the Heavenly Aphrodite, our perspective on eternity).
All evil is a ccretion” it is something alien to the inmost nature of the soul, which arises in the course of its embodied life.
The powers of the Demiurge create man in order to keep the Divine Light prisoner in his body. These gods exert spiritually magnetic forces which tend to keep the soul from advancing to the higher spheres unless one has access to esoteric knowledge
he was the archon or chief of the lowest order of the spirits or eons of the pleroma: mingling with chaos, he formed in it a corporeal animated world. He created man, but could impart to him only his own weak principle, the psyche, or sensuous soul. therefore the … But the power of evil in the material body prevented the development of that higher element. The demiurge, ignorant of the highest God, could not bring his creatures to the knowledge of the true Godhead
The Archons preventing the spark of light (the divine essence of humans) from returning to the pleroma.
Ego or the false self, the “counterfeit spirit” or mind that causes separation from God, is the primary weapon of the negative power in his deceit of souls
God, the tyrannical and presumptuous archons rule the cosmos like a vast prison, enslaving humankind and preventing at death the return to God of the “pneuma” or “spark” in the human soul, the slumbering portion of the divine substance.
To this purpose all our body regions are permeated by nerve substance which represents the active spiritual principle.
That this is so is due to the presence of a divine spark which slumbers in every human breast and which needs only a breath to fan it … “God lives in you; in movement, in brightness and in sound you may behold the eternal forward motion of the spirit.
There is in the soul of every being created in the image of God, an instinctive craving after a higher life ; an upturning toward that which is spiritual ; an effort of the mind to grasp the invisible, and seek it as a permanent good. In the deep darkness of the night, a volcano burst forth, and on the city, in its slumbers, poured its torrents of fire and death.
The sun is but a spark of fire, A transient meteor in the sky; The soul, immortal as its sire, Shall never die. Our soul is immortal. It derived its being from God. It is born never to die. You are a soul; a something which can think and feel independently of the body, and will exist when the body is dead.
” Man is an immortal being—mortal, as to his body, but immortal in his soul. The soul of man is allied to angels is allied to God. The soul of man is an immortal principle to which consciousness always attaches. The soul of man is an indestructible essence—an emanation from the Deity—a spark of the Divinity. Man is a partaker of the life of the LORD God—a participant in the immortality of God.”
a divine spark or self trapped in matter
Immateriality was divine and wholly good. Matter was irredeemably evil. The cosmic predicament was that pieces, or sparks, of divinity had become trapped in matter. Human souls lay trapped in bodies.
They saw the material world as the product of evil forces, though scattered fragments of the higher spiritual realm had tragically become enmeshed in this dark world. Trapped in matter and subordinate to the powers of destiny, human beings were slaves to powerful cosmic forces, or archons—”rulers”—a subjugation which could be overcome by liberating the inner spark of the divine within the individual believer. This was achieved by learning the mystical practices, spells, and words of power which would allow the initiate to ascend to the highest spiritual realms of light and truth.
To the Greek way of thinking influenced by Plato, all tangible matter is detestable. This realm of substance we inhabit on earth is but a substandard shadow of the perfect realm of pure idea or thought. Humans, then, are divine sparks trapped within prisons of fleshy matter, and death is a liberation. Freed from its captivity in the realm of substance, the mind can fly to its true home in the realm of idea.
Salvation comes by the soul’s escape from the body. Soul and body are essentially opposed. The soul is a spark of the divine trapped by the creator in matter. Self-conscious liberation of this spark unites it with the realm of God Consciousness.
We yearn for an escape from the prison of history. We long for what Eliade called the Eternal Return, a mythical, timeless era outside of time, before history, or after it (there is really no difference). Linear, historical cultures are trapped in history in much the same way that each individual is trapped in the time frame of his or her life. Every life has a beginning and an end; we are pushed along, inexorably, by time from the moment we are born to the moment the plug is pulled and the sheet drawn up.
We are spirit trapped in matter and must find our way out.
The goal with liberate the light – is to free the trapped divine sparks from their encapsulation of matter. This tension between the divine light, the sparks of God, and the grossness of matter is what is causing the corruption of the world.
How does one free the divine sparks? Because if we could free all the sparks, we would restore the original act of creation.
The powers of the Demiurge create man in order to keep the Divine Light prisoner in his body. These gods exert spiritually magnetic forces which tend to keep the soul from advancing to the higher spheres unless one has access to esoteric knowledge
The Gnostics thought that Evil was not so much a negative quality – an absence – as a positive one. They believed that the world that resulted from the emanations of God (which they called aeons) was a purely spiritual world, which they called the Pleroma. The material world – which included the human body – was the creation of a Demiurge, a rival of God. Some of the radiance from God, sparks of the divine, had become trapped in parts of this material world; in a human being the Soul was one of these sparks. If it were to be freed from the trap or prison of the material world and to rejoin the purely spiritual world, it needed a special and esoteric knowledge or gnosis – hence the word given to this philosophy.
Nevertheless, the mysteries of alchemy continued to influence Goethe throughout his life: he gradually came to understand this craft to be an allegorical system, that it was studied by the ancients and medieval scholastics to contemplate the spiritual and physical aspects of the universe. As the years progressed.
Goethe began to use alchemical imagery in his writings, encoding his works in an esoteric allegorical code perceptible only to the attentive initiate. As mentioned in previous chapters of our study, alchemy is generally perceived to be an ancient quest for the knowledge of how to turn base metals into gold and to procure the elixir of immortal life, marvels that could be accomplished with the discovery of the ‘philosopher’s stone’.
These simplistic descriptions are misleading, for alchemy in its original context was more than the search for earthly wealth— it was an all-encompassing philosophy, a ‘Great Science of Knowledge’ that allow man to comprehend his world and the unseen realm of the Divine. Alchemical traditions first originated from the classic pagan and Gnostic ideologies of the creation of the universe. Aristotle taught that the cosmos was formed by a ‘Prime Mover’ who arranged the four elements into their respective order, all bound together with a mystical fifth element, the quintessence. Gnostic doctrines (2 to Pcentury AD) were derived from the gradual inclusion of Egyptian, Persian, Greek and other oriental precepts, thus a more complicated belief system in the duality of spirit and matter emerged. The ancient Gnostics acknowledged the existence of a great immortal spirit-entity or deity who is unreachable and incomprehensible.
A series of lesser ‘gods’ generated and proceeded from this Being by ’emanation’. In certain Gnostic myths, the last of these lesser divinities was Sophia, or Wisdom, but she desired to attain full knowledge of the First Absolute Being, and with this illicit desire, she corrupted the process of emanation, begetting the evil spirit-entity called the demiurge. The world of corporal matter, including the human race, was then created by the demiurge. who reigned with legions of archons (rulers) in the planetary spheres.
The physical world was often considered ‘evil’ and corrupt by the Gnostics for it was ruled by rebellious archons, while the upper sphere, remained the kingdom of the good entities. The uppermost sphere of Saturn was believed to form a boundary between the lower physical world and the higher spiritual realm.
However, the Supreme Being did not desire the eternal destruction of the human race, and thus sent into the physical world divine ‘sparks’ fragmented from Itself that all became confined in matter: a form of the ‘quintessence’ or ‘divine spirit’ in Creation—an internal cosmic map leading man back to that union with the Supreme Deity. Thus, according to Gnostic ideas, humans were a combination of both worlds, a body and soul formed from physical matter, while simultaneously possessing a third spiritual element called the manna, or ‘divine spark’ that displayed the divine origins of man.
Humans remained trapped in the physical world unless they received divine knowledge of their true nature through mysterious messages imparted to a chosen few, whose sacred duty it was to transmit this knowledge, or gnosis. to their brethren. However, knowledge of the physical universe and how it worked was also essential if mankind could hope to overcome this ‘trap’ of corporeal matter ruled by the evil archons, not only to obtain spiritual salvation, but also to attain a certain degree of peace and harmony while on earth. A considerable measure of Gnostic cosmology was adapted from the teachings of Heraclitus of Ephesus (540-475? BC), a Stoic philosopher who believed the physical realm also operated according to the laws of life and death.
It was born in the element of fire, and progressed through the various elements until it would suffer ‘death’ by fire, but as it dies, it leaves a ‘seed’ from which the cosmos is reborn. To initiate this growth, a universal ‘male’ and ‘female’ element was required to form a cosmic union, i.e. the ‘divine’ with the ‘physical’, an idea that would be included into the craft of alchemy.
Thus, the regeneration of the universe was an eternal series of cyclical ages that proceeded and returned through the divine clement of fire. The Gnostics symbolised this eternal circle with the ourobouros, a snake or a dragon biting its tail to form a ring, which became an important image in the ‘science’ of alchemy.” As time progressed, many writings recording the various processes in attaining gnosis were compiled, and eventually attributed to the legendary Hennes Trismcgistus. One of the most famous and comprehensive of these texts concerning alchemy is the Emerald Tablet, which mystically explains how to obtain this knowledge to unlock the secrets of the ‘quintessence—the key to understanding the union between heaven and earth:
This is the truth, the whole and incontestable truth,
Without one word of falsehood.
That which is above is the same which is below.
And that which is below is also that which is above.
These are the miracles consummated in the One.
And, how all things are derived from the One, through your mediation, Also, all that is created by the image of this One Thing through adaptation.
The Sun is your father; your mother the Moon.
The wind transports it into your belly, and the Earth nourishes it.
It begets all the marvels of the Universe. Your power will be complete when you return to the Earth.
Separate Earth from Fire, the subtle from the vulgar, Gently and with great ingenuity, Ascend from the Earth to the Heavens and return to the Earth.
Combining the superior powers with the inferior. In this manner you will achieve the glory of the Universe, And all obscurity will flee from you.
This is the power of all powers, For this goes beyond all subtle things, And penetrates all solid things.
In this way the world was created.
And in this way turns to new works.
And so this is the process. For this I am called Thrice Greatest Hermes
For I am the master of the three principles of Universal Wisdom.
This concludes what I have to say Of the work of the Sun.'”
At first, this tablet would appear to ask the initiate to seek and acquire secret magic powers, for example, to learn how to ascend to Heaven, and other similar impossible feats. However, the text is not that fantastic in application: Hermes advises the alchemical philosopher to discover how to ‘adapt’ the elements of the earth to build models of the universal forces to observe the cosmos, and extract the quintessence. By observing the celestial forces at work on earth, a philosopher comes to an understanding of the ‘One’ or Supreme Deity and how the created can reunite with the Creator. The key to divine union and harmony would be the discovery of a ‘bridge’ between the two realms symbolised by the extraction of the quintessence, that the corrupt matter of earth could transform with
this divine clement and be ‘reborn’ in a state of perfection—in other words, alchemy was an elaborate visible parable for spiritual contemplation. Let us examine this concept further.'” When it is stated “what is above is also below”, it was understood by alchemists that the heavenly kingdom was mirrored on earth and represented by the planets, metals, plants, life forms, and so forth. Recreating the cosmic forces by artificial means and applying them to these various substances, one could observe the process of transformation from corruption to perfection. Thus alchemists identified or invented various procedures to isolate and observe the circle of life at work in the physical realm, which are usually seven in number, presumably to symbolise the seven planetary steps of the geocentric Macrocosmos ascending to that realm of the spiritual kingdom. These may differ in order depending on the perception of the philosopher:
1) Calcination. Process of burning the materials to white ash, considered a procedure of purification, symbolises the secret fire that destroys all corruption. Represented by the planet Saturn.
2) Dissolution: The ashes, usually calcinated plant material ‘sal sails’, is dissolved; part of the symbolic process of “dissolving” the corrupt body and “solidifying” the spirit, i.e. separating the “Garth” from “Fire” according to Hermes. Represented by the planet Jupiter.
3) Separation: The process of separating the ‘male’ and ‘female’ elements as they are not in harmony. Part of removing the “subtle from the vulgar”. Represented by the planet Mars.
4) Coniugation: The “marriage” of materials, for example the ‘male’ (Sun) element of sulphur combined with the ‘female’ (Moon) element of mercury, to produce the ‘child’= salt. This trinitarian process was used in gold alchemy.
5) Fermentation: Symbolises the putrefaction of death. Represented by the planet Venus.
6) Distillation: An invention of the alchemists to liberate volatile essences, the vertical spiral tubing represented purification of the spirit and soul as they ascend to heaven and return to earth. Represented by the planet Mercury.
7) Solidification: Solidifying the materials and collecting it in the alembic once distilled. “Dissolve and solidify”—the ‘Philosopher’s Stone’ is perfected.
In theory, the ‘Philosopher’s Stone’, or the extracted quintessence, was a corporeal allegory for a foundation or corner stone, in turn symbolising the attainment of wisdom—this is the reward Hermes Trismegistus pronounced, the dispersal of the darkness of ignorance: “And all obscurity will flee from you. This is the power of all powers
The White and Red Stone in Alchemy
YOUR DNA CONTAINS A MESSAGE
Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
Symbolically, alchemy represents our attempts to refine or improve ourselves Individually and collectively.
Proverbs 15:24, The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.
To complete His work he has sent his Messenger with the spirit or science of the truth.
Remember the words of Master Jesus who said, “Be ye faithful unto Death and I will give thee a Crown of Life”
All you are doing, in truth, is getting your consciousness in harmony with your God consciousness! And mystical theology confirmed the vision of truth revealed by nature and alchemy: The true Knowledge is God.
The truth is linked to your DNA light codes. In each one of you, your DNA is coded to respond to truth. In that way, the truth will set you free. The DNA within your cells contains a message to yourself; it is the blueprint, the code to help you remember your greatness. When we agreed to this experience, we agreed to put a safety net in place. This is the peace you discover when you find the truth held within your soul. It is the peace that indicates you have safely arrived. It is my peace within your being. It is peace that flows throughout your being as you come into the realisation that you have found what you were searching for. When you land on the safety net of peace, you know your search is over.
Any time you feel the pain of separation or the lack of peace, look within and find me within yourself, remembering then who you are.
The cycle of lives only exists for you until you choose to release yourself from that guise of separateness and return back to your omniscient self. That is the reason you chose your lifespan—to pass the tasks you set yourself, knowing that you could take one or more lifetimes to do this. After passing the set tasks, you would move up a level, so to speak, and be faced with a new challenge, a new task.
Your purpose is to rediscover yourself and reveal yourself in your divinity and alchemy is the Divine gift from God to realize this. This world has earlier unplugged ten of humans 12 DNA strands from this Divine truth.
You are the New Jerusalem, the evolved psyche in Oneness with Universal Life. Within the city is the Garden of Eden where the Tree of Life stands.
Revelations 21:6 says; the water of life is the knowledge pouring within us from Universal Life itself. It is clear as crystal symbolizes that clarity we receive about life from the Source which is the essence from where all things originate. It pours from the pineal which is the Lamb and the Universal Life is the light that fills the body giving us wisdom.
Genesis 2:10 says; And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
This verse corresponds to the description of the brain. In the arachnoid layer and the pia matter flows a river of cerebrospinal fluid that bathes the brain and provides a soft fluid protective cushion. The cerebrospinal fluid originates from the walls of an interconnected cave located deep within the brain. The chambers of this cave, the ventricles are four in number. These ventricles are the four heads mentioned in genesis 2:10
The Garden of Eden is the right hemisphere of the brain; it is the 90% we don’t use. The left side of the brain is the 10%. The 10 % on left side is your portion; the 90% on the right is God’s. In order to get to the right, you have to tithe, give the 10% of you mind, not your wallet. In the macrocosm the10% is the material world, 90% is the Quintessence which scientist has named dark matter. Dark matter is the essence that permeates everything. It is life force, Universal Life, in the mythology of Star Wars it is the Force. This is what we tap into in the right hemisphere of the brain.
Three Realms of Manifestation
The final, seventh rubric of the Emerald Tablet identifies its author, the revealer of the Emerald Formula, and is known as the Trinity Rubric: Therefore am I called Thrice Greatest Hermes, having all three parts of the wisdom of the Whole Universe. Herein have I completely explained the Operation of the Sun. What makes Hermes thrice greatest? Through his enlightenment, Hennes has conquered all three levels of reality; the Spiritual World of the subtle mind and imagination, the Mental World of our personality and influences of our hidden souls, and the Physical World of gross matter, our human bodies, as well as the Stone, which is the ultimate spiritual embodiment. These levels are represented esoterically as the Sun, Moon, and Earth. In alchemical terms they are higher states of consciousness called Sulfur, Mercury, and Salt. The entity named Hermes Trismegistus has also experienced three incarnations. He first appeared as Thoth, whom the Egyptians worshipped as the God of Thought and who preserved the knowledge of ultimate truth through the great, cleansing Flood, so that the worthy still might have a chance at transformation. Next, he appeared as Akhenaten, the pharaoh who worshipped the Aten, the One Thing, and sought to live in accordance with the providence of the One Mind. Thirdly, he came to us as Balinas, the misfit youth whose rediscovery of the tablet transformed his life, and whose tireless work in Alexandria made it possible for the contents of the miraculous document to be transmitted to our own era.
These incarnations of Hermes correspond to the three great cosmic emanations. First was the original act of Thought, the creation of the universe, the grand union of Fire and Water accomplished by the action of the One Mind on the One Thing. Second was the Birth of Light within matter, the rise of spirit and creation of consciousness to accomplish the evolution of soul. Finally came the Virgin Birth from the union of spirit and soul within man, which represents the second creation, man purified and reborn on a higher level. This reunion of spirit and soul is the Christ consciousness that was demonstrated not only in the life of Jesus, but in the life of Balinas and others as well, and which any person can obtain having been shown the way—what Hermes called the Pattern. The all-encompassing Pattern of Hermes is nothing less than the perfection of the cosmic soul. That this process is evolutionary is evidenced by nature herself, just as we can witness its Pattern in our own lives. The alchemical process for achieving the perfection of nature is what is referred to in the last line of the last rubric of the Emerald Tablet. The “Operation of Sun” is a way to describe God in the most objective way: the conversion of energy into matter. The self-sufficient sun, feeding off itself through all eternity, is a symbol of the same process going on within our own souls if we only tap into it. The hidden Sun of our deepest being is also like a nuclear reaction that drives our physical and spiritual transformation.
VITRIOL . the Visita represents a start of a journey or spiritual transformation to find the Lapidem (meaning the Stone). In three days it passed through the process of Black, White, Red
VITRIOL means; “Visit the innermost parts of the earth; by setting things right, you will find the hidden Stone.”
“For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish for three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth for three days”
For at the end of the alchemical process, we arrive back where we started from, only now empowered and embodied in an eternal Stone that represents an incorruptible higher consciousness. There is one last message hidden in the Azoth drawing. All the Latin words contained in the outer ring that connects the rays of transformation spell out a summary of what has taken place: Visita: Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occutum Lapidem. This means “Visit the innermost parts of the earth; by setting things right, you will find the hidden Stone.” The first letter of these seven Latin words spells out the Hermetic word VITRIOL. Vitriol is the first of the arcana, which are secret chemicals in a laboratory experiment that summarizes the entire process of transformation. Acidic Vitriol is the fiery liquid energy that drives physical transmutation and becomes the brain ambrosia or hormone that brings on the materialization of spirit in man. By recognizing and working with the forces of alchemy, anyone can not only tap into hidden sources of creative power but fundamentally transform themselves and their life situations.
Red (= sun) and white (= moon) are the alchemical colours
Red stone is the gold and the white stone the silver
Scriptures in Revelation mention the; White Stone
The hidden manna in Revelation 2:17
In alchemy, a tree with moons denotes the lunar opus (the Lesser Work) and the tree with suns the solar opus (the Great Work)
The Three Principles being enclosed in the vessel, or Athanor, which is man himself, and subjected to a gentle fire—the Incendium Amoris—the process of the Great Work, the mystic transmutation of natural into spiritual man (the living stone), can begin. This work, like the ingredients which compose it, has “three numbers”: and the first matter, in the course of its transmutation, assumes three successive colours: the Black, the White, and the Red. These three colours are clearly analogous to the three traditional stages of the Mystic Way: Purgation, Illumination, Union.
The First Magisterium, the Lunar Stone is created. It represents gaining control over the body, so that every fiber and tissue can be completely relaxed. The Second Magisterium, the Solar Stone, is achieved when the mind is controlled through willpower, so that fear and ego do not interfere. The Third Magisterium is the union of the Lunar and Solar Stones with the cosmic presence to create the Stellar Stone or Astral Body. Seen another way, the Conjunction is the union of the Lunar Stone with the Solar Stone, the Marriage of the King and Queen, to create the Lesser Stone in which we become centered and gain control over mind and body. Coagulation, then, is the union of the Lesser Stone with the powers of the Above to create the Greater Stone of the Golden or Astral Body. Having achieved that Greater Stone, you have broken free of genetic, environmental, and even astrological restraints to your being and are free to express the bliss of your true Presence—the Stone. At this stage, you are born into the Universe and have arrived at a new plateau, the Greater Mysteries of the ancients. This is true atonement (at-one-ment) with the mind of God.
The Eucharistic Bread signifies the super-substantial sustenance, and the Wine is arch-natural life. It is for this reason that the Alchemical Stone at the red has a higher tingeing and transmuting power than the Stone at the white. The first matters of the alchemical work, to make use of another language of subterfuge, are Sulphur, Mercury and Salt; but these are the elements of the Philosophers and not those of the ordinary kind. In other words, common Sulphur and Mercury correspond to the Bread and Wine before consecration, and the philosophical elements are those which have been transubstantiated by the power of the secret words. That which is produced is called Panis Vivus et Vitalis and Vinum Mirabile . instead of the daily meat and drink by which we ask to be sustained in the Lord’s Prayer. The Salt is that which is called the formula of consecration; it is that which salts and transmutes the natural earth. When Chris( said: “If the Salt lose its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? “this can be understood of the super-excellent and extra-valid consecration; the removal of the Graal signifies that of a certain arch-natural salting, yet the salt of sufficing grace remains, like that of nature, and in its way also it communicates. Christ further said: “You are the salt of the earth”–and this is the true priesthood.
“He will do even greater things than these”
The final excerpt from this central section is headed “A philosophicall worke” (pp. 478-84), and is again extracted from Coclson’s Philosophia Hamra° (1668). It details sonic of the key beliefs which underlie the ehymical opus, and, in particular, the Paracelsian concept of the Ina prima – the three principles present in all matter, namely Salt. Sulphur. and Mercury. or. as they are called in this work. “philosophical Niter,” “subtile Salt,” and “fixed Salt”:
The earth contains in it the seeds of all things and their operations. It is the center foundation and Mother of all things. Therein are great secrets: and the first begotten heavenly spirit of Nature is secretly shut up and hidden therein; Also in the center thereof I yes hidden a virgin Earth consisting in the 3 principles. If thou knowest how to separate them out of it and to joync them againc philosophically thou shalt have the greatest treasure. (p. 478)
The excerpt moves on to instruct the reader in the best method to separate these principles from earth, the prima materia, or “first matter” from which the chymieal opus proceeds. We arc advised to take a portion of fresh earth, “which is sufficiently impregnated with the beams of the Sun and Moone and other stars” (p. 478). and to “divide it into eaquall pans measured” (p. 479). The three principles are then extracted by subjecting the prima niateria to simple processes of “boylcing, filtrating. evaporating, congealing” (p. 479). recipes for each of which are then given. The final outcome of this work is the Philosopher’s Stone itself.
ALCHEMY AND SUPERNATURAL LIFE
The gift of Alchemy is the gift of supernatural life and that the Stone is Christ—that is to say, Christ the Spirit. ” This is the noble precious Stone—Lapis Philosophorum—the Philosopher’s Stone, which the Magi do find, which tinctureth Nature and generateth a new Son in the old.” It is at once manifest and hidden : it is hidden in this world and yet may be had everywhere. ” And this Stone is Christ, the Son of the Living God, Which discovereth Itself in all those that seek and find it.” The apostles ” went about with this Stone, in power and doing miracles “, but it has been persecuted always by the schools of the worldly wise. It is offered by God and bestowed on man ; it is to be had by those who desire it ; and the power of the whole Deity lies therein.’
Whether it can be accommodated or not to the subject-matter of alchemical symbolism and its literature, we cannot affirm that there is anything remote or unlikely in an attempt to understand the Stone of Philosophy in the sense of that Stone which is Christ : on the contrary, it is the institution of an analogy which is a little of the obvious order, since it is written at large in Scripture.
That Blessed Stone which is the desire of the eyes in Alchemy could do no otherwise than recall the ” Living Stone “, the head in chief of the corner, elect and precious, the Spiritual Rock.* And because according to the alchemists the matter of their Stone is common and mean of price, while the Stone itself is Lapis Exillis as Bohme plainly describes it, ” a very dark disesteemed Stone, of a grey colour,” it is inevitable that it should be compared in the mind—whether versed or not in the labyrinth of the Hermetic subject—with that Stone rejected of the builders, which is a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offence.’ But as Christ is also the Stone of Salvation,’ so is the Philosophical Stone that in which ” lieth the highest tincture “.
If the Stone of Alchemy is Christ, it is to be understood spiritually.
The Stone of which there is no end to the virtue and glory. He who hath it and knoweth it, if he seek, he may find all things whatsoever [which] are in heaven and in earth. It is the Stone which is rejected of the builders and is the Chief Corner Stone. Upon whatsoever it falleth it grindeth it to powder and kindleth a fire therein. All universities seek it but find it not by their seeking sometimes it is found by one that seeketh it rightly. But others [that seek it in self and for their own gain] despise it and cast it away ; and so it remaineth hidden.
Psalm 105:41 says; He opened the rock, and water gushed out; it flowed like a river in the desert.
For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ.
Christ was the Rock out of which the waters flowed
In three days it passed through the process of Black, White, Red
For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish for three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth for three days
Foundation Stone – Living Stone
Superconsciousness Humans or Computers
Rev 21:1 says; “there was no more sea”. The sea symbolize the collective unconscious (water), and when all chakras is cleansed and polarities is united in oneness or Divine Superconsciousness there is no more sea. This is same process in alchemy when making lead to gold and find the “Philosopher´s Stone)
Book of Revelation: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away”.
Book of Revelation 21:4 also says; And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away (This is the transformation process rebirth Phoenix Bird from a physical being to spiritual man (or a living stone).
To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God” (Revelation 2:4–5, 7).
To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it (The Philosopher´s Stone and The Eternal Stone)
“The Kingdom of Heaven is within you” (The Superconsciousness state of Divine Mind is within you)
These Bible verses is related to this text
Superconscious Finally, if the collective unconscious is the water, the superconscious is the air above the iceberg. This is the “God mind” or the higher mind in nonreligious terms. This is the part of the human mind posited to be directly linked to a higher intelligence that, depending on one’s beliefs, exists within us, is external to us, or both.
The superconscious transcends human consciousness and is our field of all possibility and potentiality. Some call it the quantum field, where nothing and everything exists at the same time as both wave and particle until we, the observers, serve to collapse the wave function and measure or fix reality into position. Until then, all is in a state of superposition.
The superconscious is the superpositioned mind. Where the other levels of consciousness are closely tied into our physical nature, the superconscious goes beyond physicality. An interesting analogy for all of this comes from today’s obsession with technology. Imagine your own personal computer. That is your conscious, active mind. Your computer is linked to others all over the globe via the global “network” that allows you to converse with folks in other countries in real time and access almost instantaneously anything you want or need. That is the superconscious mind. Your computer runs on selected programs you chose to have installed with time and may have forgotten you did. That is the subconscious mind. Below all of this is the amassed collective of all of the information on all computers all over the world past, present, and future. That is the collective unconscious.
The “higher mind” may or may not exist outside of the body/brain as a consciousness that interacts with our brains. This is the domain of universal consciousness, which we are all able to tap into for information we need. This mind knows nothing of linear time or the limitations of space, and is often described as “infinite mind.” Here, we find the highest levels of knowledge, creativity, spiritual awareness, oneness, wholeness, and connectedness with the All.
Like the Bible’s Kingdom of Heaven, it is in and through us and all around us. But we don’t have to believe in a religious God to experience this open awareness and destruction of ego and separation.
Where the collective unconscious is the deepest part of us, connected to the unconscious minds of everyone else that get their power from symbols and past programming, the superconscious is the highest part of us, connected to all the conscious minds as well as the mind of what created us: Source, God, Kingdom of Heaven, The Zero Point Field. It is a pure field or “grid” of potentiality from which we co-create our manifest reality.
Some psychologists and scholars claim the superconscious and collective unconscious are the same, but in fact they are quite the opposite of each other. The superconscious knows all and allows us to access it by becoming one with a creative source or force. The collective unconscious is the land of hidden symbolic information of humanity through time, yet continuing to drive our behaviors and personalities below the radar and behind the scenes.
Superconsciousness is God Mind. It is transcendent and divine. The collective unconscious is Humanity Mind. It is instinctual and primal. Both are critical to our understanding of who we are. As powerful and superior as this level of mind may be. we rarely use it. when we do, we are inspired, acting on what we sense is our higher selves or our creative source energy moving through us, speaking to us.
Our conscious mind will often keep us distracted from the whisperings of the superconscious, and our subconscious and collective unconscious might even serve as gatekeepers that refuse to let us into the gates of heaven, so to speak. Acting to keep us afraid, in our comfort zones, safe, and curled into a little ball of habit, pattern, and self-sabotage, the other levels of mind will stop at nothing to keep us from experiencing more of the connection with the superconsciousness we seek in order to align ourselves to our purpose here on Earth.
We can use many tools to reach the superconscious and soak up that inspiration and energy, but we first must deal with the deeper parts of ourselves that resist this because we might change—and change is scary. So whereas the superconscious may be the most desirable level of mind to experience, it is still the rock-bottom level of mind that is driving us away from that experience. That rock-bottom level is the collective unconscious, where we dance the dance of life immersed in universal beliefs, symbols, and ideas that may or may not be our own, may or may not serve us, and may or may not be in our best interest.
Having a visual understanding of how the mind is structured and what each level is responsible for is helpful in realizing what makes us who we are as individuals and as a species. But it doesn’t go far enough to show us why we are who we are, and how we can make changes to ourselves and our lives that more fully reflect the truth and authenticity of the person we know somewhere deep within we can be. To do that, we have to step back from speaking the language of the conscious mind, which is focused on words, unexamined beliefs, thoughts, goals, and plans, and begin speaking the language of the collective unconscious.
Think of it this way: if a diver wants to get the object on the ocean floor, he/she has to go all the way to the bottom. Unless it floats, it is stuck there in the sand and sediment to be pulled out and examined up in the light of day. To dive that deep, though, we have to learn to speak in symbols, and the most powerful of these are the archetypes. These mysterious and enigmatic symbols run our lives from their domain, or kingdom, and yet most of us have never even met or acknowledged them. Until now.
The end goal was the transformation of the archetype that represented the totality of the psyche is: the self. SELF: This is the idealized, unified whole of our psyche that balances the shadow and the self, the anima and the animus. This is the real person actualized and was, to Jung, the ultimate goal of a human being and the greatest state of personal and spiritual achievement. The self is the unity of the personality as a whole, an entirety.
Consciousness works trhough the brain, but doesn´t reguire a brain to exist. It was, indeed, consciousness that produced the brain. Superconsciousness takes humans awareness outside the brain
Consciousness existed before the appearance of matter—before the appearance even of time and space. In this con-text, Pure Consciousness is not really even omnipresent: It simply is. It was vibrations of that consciousness that produced energy, and then, through grosser vibrations of energy, produced matter. Without these movements of consciousness, time and space wouldn’t exist.
The Human Potential
Only in humankind does consciousness reveal its potential for abandoning its material identity altogether. The fact that human beings seem to possess a capacity for increasing their awareness indefinitely suggests that they may even have the potential to continue that expansion to infinity. Rational thought suggests, and the experience of great mystics—the “scientists” of the spiritual world—confirms, that human beings, with their more highly refined nervous system, have the potential to transcend ego-awareness altogether, and attain cosmic consiousness.
Subconsciousness lies, as the word implies, below the level of conscious awareness. Its physical seat in the body is the lower brain and the spine. The more our energy and awareness are uplifted in the spine and projected forward through the brain toward the frontal lobe, the higher our level of awareness will be. Concentrate in the frontal lobe of the brain, at a point midway between the eyebrows. The spine is the tunnel through which consciousness ascends to enlightenment. It begins from the dimmest awareness at the base of the spine, and ends at the seat seat of superconsciousness between the eyebrows (third eye).
The “Self,” so conceived, is the sacred and secret power behind our other “selves” and, in fine, the channel of God within us. “The Kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:21)
In concluding, let us not always be blinded by reason, since intellect is below intuition, and often it fails. But let us not think that intuition, the power of the higher mind, is only for a few gifted persons. Every one of us possesses this, though only a few show the marked development of the higher mind. Devotion, love, purity, an urge to help our fellow men, and selflessness are all the signs of incoming rays of our higher mind in our evolution. The science of Yoga brings this message to every one of us, irrespective of our religion, caste, or nationality, that in man there is an immortal soul wherein lie all knowledge, all wealth, all joy, and peace; and also a practical way to achieve, in a short time, “the kingdom of heaven within us.” To summarize, the mind of man functions on three levels:
The subconscious, instinctive, or automatic mind. It controls the involuntary functions of the body; it is the seat of lower emotions and animal instinct, and it also carries on the auto-matic functions of our daily activities. Conscious mind or intellect. Intellect can control and guide the subconscious and is the basic requisite for the ego or “I” consciousness. Reasoning is the function of the intellect. Superconscious mind, or higher mind. The function of this mind, which is above intellect, is to achieve intuition and higher consciousness. Beyond these three levels of the mind is the pure consciousness known as spirit, soul, or self, which is formless, timeless, changeless, and infinite in its nature. Compared to the conscious mind, the lower self is superconscious. The Crown chakra and the Pineal gland is connected to the subconsciousness mind. A balanced flow of energy in this chakra may result in the ability to access both the subconscious and super- conscious minds. The superconsciousness is the bridge between your Divine Mind and your point of consciousness – the superconsciousness is the bridge to reaility. The superconscious mind, or Higher Self. The conscious mind, or middle self. The unconscious mind, or lower self. The superconscious mind is an aspect of Universal Consciousness and the Monad, it is the “inspirational body.” The Soul, the Christ Overself, and the Higher Self are aspects of the superconscious mind. The conscious mind is the middle self. It is the self-reflective analytical mind, or ego. The conscious mind has less information processing abilities than either the superconscious mind or the unconscious mind. The subconscious mind is an aspect of the middle self. The subconscious mind should not be confused with the unconscious mind, which is known to exist at a much deeper level. The lower self is the unconscious mind. It should be understood, however, that the lower self is anything but unconscious. Compared to the conscious mind, the lower self is superconscious, as it automatically processes a great deal of energy and information. The first three chakras constitute the spiritual consciousness of the lower self: Will, manifestation, and the connection to primal, creative life force Kundalini. What psychologists refer to as the subconscious mind is the intermedi-ary level between the conscious and unconscious minds. The super conscious mind is the higher level of personal consciousness with access to the universal of collective unconscious. It is where the ‘gods’ or powerful archetypes and spirit guides can be found. First, there is the superconscious mind. Our superconscious mind is located in our cell in the divine brain on the spiritual plane. Our superconscious mind is still directly connected to the Cosmic Consciousness, but we, our conscious self on the material plane, are separated from direct access to this superconscious mind due to the superconscious mind being on the higher planes and our lower, conscious mind being bound to the material plane. So the subconscious mind was brought into being to step down the high vibrations of the superconscious mind. The subconscious mind is a bridge between the superconscious mind and our conscious self, our conscious mind. It is through the subconscious mind, which steps down the full power of the superconscious mind, that we receive communication from our higher self. The subconscious mind then communicates with our conscious mind and conversely, the subconscious mind is the communications link between us, our conscious self, and the superconscious mind. This stepping down process is necessary or we wouldn’t be able to receive messages from our higher self that would be understandable. The subconscious mind has two functions. It is the controller of the automatic functions of the body and it is the connecting link between the conscious mind and the superconscious mind. The superconscious mind initiates ‘intuition’, or those impulses that impel us through life. The superconscious mind is constantly giving us impulses directing us to move out of our fallen state, the prison we are bound to on the material plane. The superconscious mind constantly sends impulses to our subconscious mind for us to move in certain desired channels and directions in life. Earth is symbolized by the soul. Since the subconscious mind works through symbols, it is important to cultivate the ability to interpret these symbols to decipher their meaning. The Philosopher’s Stone, and the secret of all secrets, and the gift of God. But it is difficult to discover the gift that is the philosopher’s stone and that exists in each one of us. The difficult part is uncovering the gift of the Philosopher’s Stone, which exists in each of us. It is sought by many and found be a few. It is beheld from afar and found near, fort it exist in every thing, in every place, and at all times. “Consciousness as the Substance of the Universe” ‘THE SUBSTANCE OF THE UNIVERSE IS CONSCIOUSNESS. NOT MATTER. MATTER DOES NOT EXIST. IT IS ONLY A PERCEPTION. IT IS AN ILLUSION. ONLY ENERGY EXISTS. ENERGY VIBRATING AT DIFFERENT FREQUENCIES. CONSCIOUSNESS IS ENERGY. EVERYTHING YOU THINK EXISTS DOESN’T AND EVERYTHING YOU THINK DOESN’T EXIST, IS ALL THAT DOES. THE ONLY THING THAT EXISTS IS CONSCIOUSNESS. EVERYTHING IS CONSCIOUSNESS. YOU ARE CONSCIOUSNESS. You ARE EVERYTHING THAT IS. THERE IS NOTHING THAT YOU AREN’T. You HAVE NO IDEA HOW VAST YOU ARE BECAUSE YOU’VE SO LONG ACCEPTED THAT YOU ARE SMALL THAT THERE IS NO ABILITY IN YOUR MIND TO REALIZE HOW BIG YOU ARE. YOU ARE THE POTENTIAL OF EVERYTHING. YOU ARE ONLY LIMITED BY THE BELIEFS YOU’VE ACCEPTED TO BE SO.” Look up into a clear night sky and it appears infinite. It is you. And you are vaster than what you can even perceive. Through human self-reflection, the universal force that is consciousness also self reflects to some degree. This is so because there are no real boundaries between human beings and Nature, other than those we impose. Humanity is an extension of nature and natural laws. This is why we are a medium for That Which Creates and Understands in the Universe. As a part of this creative Cosmos, we too create, self-reflect and come to know the Creator Within This is why one of the very best ways to know God, is through the knowing of self. Our daily reality is not only a matter of connection with God or Universal Consciousness. We are in fact actually composed of the same essence as that which is called God. In essence, we are as cells in the infinite body of Godt There are no ultimate boundaries in the cosmos The universe is actually composed of the very same underlying substance in all places peoples, and times. We are all ‘made of God, or in other words, Consciousness. Within our being is the essence of universal Intent. That Intent prompts us to grow, to increase our know/edge and become ever more than before. This is the impulse of evolution in all living beings. As a result of evolutionary impulses, we have at our command both the intelligence to accurately perceive the laws of Nature, as well as the potential wisdom to apply them effectively. We may, if we so choose, realize our Divine and Natural identity. Humanity may stride forth into a self-enlightened era, one that recognizes Nature and Consciousness as self. Through such understanding we may fashion an enlightened world
The Void is said to be the immaterial, pictorial sensibility of the prima materia, liberating the world’s soul from within the rite’s space-time and its unfolding. Seek the kingdom within you, and in doing so, “all these things will be added unto you”
In other words, the universal subconscious mind is the fabric of the universe, it is “prima materia” (or prime matter), which is an eternal process of becoming; the mental stuff from which everything springs. In Jung’s interpretation, the prima materia is some form of psychic energy, which contains the two opposites, the sun and moon or the conscious and the subconscious.
The pineal gland contains the cycle of two opposites . the day cycle and night cycle
Pineal Gland and the production of CLOCK-CYCLE
We call the pineal gland our aging clock because it is the body’s timekeeper. We age because our pineal function declines over time, and as it does it produces less melatonin. This reduction in melatonin signals to the rest of the body that it is time for it to age. But if we reset our aging clock by taking melatonin, we can reverse those signals and stave off the downward spiral. Is this merely some vague and nonspecific promise of renewal?
Research indicates that melatonin supplementation can forestall the very real and very destructive effects of aging, including weakened immune function, cancer, sleep disorders, and heart disease. The promise of melatonin may at first strike you as miraculous but there is nothing magical or mysterious about it. Melatonin works by restoring the function of the pineal gland, and thus it restores the balance to our body that we need to maintain the health we naturally enjoy in youth. The pineal gland is the “regulator” of the glands in our body that produce the hormones that run all our essential bodily systems.
Are we just our Physical Bodies which we inhabit, or are we Supernatural Beings having a Physical Experience here on earth? What if we were far more then what we have been told and commanded to believe? Imagine if we discovered that we were Devine beings with extraordinary powers and capabilities of immeasurable, unlimited, infinite potential. How would this new found information change your life?
Let’ s continue with this theme of imagining and say we discovered that our personal thoughts really do influence this seemingly physical world that we are experiencing. This would be a powerful skill and ability to possess and harness, allowing us to create and shape our realities. What if the ideas of “Space and Time were nothing more than conjured up concepts developed to control humanity in order to limit our infinite Wisdom and Power? These are just a few questions that have perplexed all of humanity from the beginning of our “Conscious Awakening” .
We have grown accustomed to depending solely upon our five sense organs which seem to work well enough in this three dimensional reality, but compelling evidence is indicating that we are experiencing a holographic reality. Our understanding beyond this seemingly physical solid realm may not be as solid as we have been taught to believe, and so the concept of “Matter is brought into question and physics tells us that “Matter” does not exist.
Physics tells us that the atom particle has only a small amount of “Mass” and “Solidity “and is predominately empty space. “Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.”
So how is it that we exist as matter? Albert Einstein alluded to this answer. We, the people of this beautiful planet, are really beings made of energy, but we exist at the 3rd dimension because our atoms have a specific frequency which makes us able to exist in this very 3rd dimension. This specific frequency is stable enough for all our lifetime. Using this information, if we are indeed capable of accelerating and decelerating the frequencies to make us able to exist in the 3rd dimension, then naturally, we can use this in order to travel inter-dimensionally throughout the infinite multiverse…and here lies the key to the true evolution of the human being race. Once we learn, or progress far enough, to accelerate and decelerate the vibrating frequencies of our atoms, then, in theory, we will be able to exist in the 5th dimension and in parallel universes of this wonderful multiverse.
The inner consciousness itself, thus affecting the forms consciousness expresses itself within (the creation of the physical matter, emotional states, thought patterns, and temporal experiences). This light expresses the radiation in patterns and forms specific to the rules and structures (root assumptions) of the local system (cellular, individual, en masse, physical universe, or nonphysical space), while being inherently capable to express their pattern of frequency in an infinitude of ways. These rules and structures are plastic and capable of evolution. They stay in place to maintain a continuity of structure and rage of accepted experiences.
Any change is a total change and the paradigm of experiences moves in totally new spheres of directions. The light within us is as wide and deep as we are capable to perceive. Put another way, our light in not governed by the same physical laws of time and space and is capable of reaching outward in continuous expanding ways in distances and achieve unimaginable levels of illumination. Perception is relative to our ability to focus the direction of the light. We perceive where our focus of attention gazes, while not negating the other directions our radiance emits to.
What becomes available from allowing this inner light to shine brightly from within us? This light within allows us to embody our true nature we have become. That which represents our expansion will continuously seeks expression from this state of being. It orchestrates all things that is representative of our furthest most platform of becoming. Stations and stations of new insights and experiences become available. Our focus discriminates our direction we move in but it doesn’ t matter because we are within our light in any choice we choose. Our ability to thrive becomes more pointed as we actively practice tuning in to specific spaces. The light is a state of being capable of being carried and activated from situation to situation. It becomes a manifested goal and achievement like any physical creation. Yet this is the well of life and the tree of knowledge of sorts. The light we activate illuminates all things in our gaze. Our attention need only turn in a direction to begin to pierce through any surface to discover new intoxicating level of experience, exploration or insight. As we tune into our vortex, we allow our broader perspective to express itself in fuller and deeper ways. Our experiences then begin to more adequately express the nature of our becoming. More and more of our escrow reveals itself from the less inhibited space.
The universe will delight in orchestrating all of the fabulous rendezvous that make up the total experience of our true nature expressing itself. Contrasts expansion is active and alive within us. The key that unlocks the manifestational door can only be activated through practicing our true nature’ s opinion through emotional terms. These characteristics and properties of the physical universe offers some assurance. I know in unmistakable terms that it is done. So I can take those goals off of the table as ulterior motives. I can erase them from my list and carry their essence in my heart. They are active and their existence has been established. Bring that established set point forward is a function of my ability to carry their tone and tune into their vibrational reality. The contrast only becomes an indicating feedback for my proximity to the treasure chest.
We are vibratory light, manifested from the pure thought of the One. Light is the first creational tool. It is needed to shine on the screen of the non-vibratory construct. As we project our light through awareness onto this screen it reflects it back as creation. This non-vibratory informational construct that gives us our reality, is the earth matrix. Our higher selves are made up of the real light, not the reflection we see in our holographic world. They exist within our deep subconscious mind. The reality we experience is projected from our higher light, within to without.
Our divine light is made out of particles of the creator. Through the energy of the One they start to rotate, through this action they emit light and vibrations which creates sound and color that is associated with these properties. The rotation also creates a magnetic field.
These divine particles of light are made manifest from the mind of the One, therefore they are intelligent.
All intelligence has awareness as one cannot exist without the other, thus they are vibratory thought.
In order for the game of creation to operate these particles of light need to interact with a form of intelligence, to learn and evolve. This is the reason for creation, without it there would be no purpose.
A construct of intelligence in the form of non-vibratory information is used as the learning tool.
Since it does not vibrate it does not emit light and is therefore dark. This is where the two forces of light and dark originate from.
The human characters we animate through our divine light are a part of this non-vibratory informational construct called the earth matrix.
The ego is the awareness of an individual separated human; it sees everything through this perspective.
This is where the conflict that is played out between the higher self and the ego is created, or what is often called good and evil. It is the awareness of unity and the unawareness of it.
In this game of creation the two forms interact. The vibratory light is the non-physical and the non-vibratory reflects the illusion of the physical as the light is reflected off the screen of the non-vibratory.
The vibratory thought energy vibrates the non-vibratory and animates it as it starts to vibrate.
The rule in creation is, the higher the vibration the more light that is refracted and will dominate its impression on what refracts less light and vibration and have more influence over it.
The vibratory particles of light through the action of their rotation create energy through their motion. The energy and motion generate emotion or e-motion.
The emotions of joy, ecstasy and happiness are of higher vibrations and generate more energy. The emotions of fear, greed and hatred are of low vibrations and energy.
As the higher selves plug into the earth matrix they activate the thought program of the human being and interact with creation through it. The human being operates between these two opposite poles of light and dark. If the human vibrates at a low vibratory rate the earth matrix will have more ability to influence its desires onto it. If the human being can increase its rate of vibrations it can impose more of its desires into its creation. Through synchronizing your vibratory rate with that of your higher self, beautiful and better worlds will open up for you.
It is about taking the whole of this physical universe and moving it back up the Ladder of Creation (or Tree of Life) to return it to the rarified and super conscious dimensional levels that exist just beyond our normal work-a-day consciousness.
The “One Soul” he often refers to when trying to explain his gift, is part of everything in the universe, unlimited by time and space. … The superconscious is linked to the consciousness of the One Soul, the source of all Wisdom coming from God.
The primitive man, connected to the world of plants and animals, has evolved to the point where he, his consciousness, is capable of “taking” the divine element. However, the current stage is not his final, finished state. We are creatures still inhabiting physical bodies, which are subject to destruction. Only when mankind has reached its “winged” (spiritually speaking) form, can it rejoin the One Soul. The “I” with its subjective forms of perception (which can be conquered through clairvoyance) will disappear forever. Thus all people are brethren, striving for the evolution of the soul toward the divine.
You’re made up of Consciousness, which is what we called “INFINITY”.
You have a mind (and EGO is the center), and a body, which are your tools for accessing different forms of reality.
The mind and the body have many levels and many dimensions.
So, you the “CONSCIOUSNESS”, “INFINITY”, has a mind and a body which have many levels and dimensions. The average human being is only aware of two dimensions. The human dimension (physical world) and the dream dimension (spiritual world).
You’re not aware that the “Living Mankind”, “Living Earth”, “The Living Sun”, “The Living Universe” and “The Living Cosmos” are also your bodies!!! (Your larger bodies)
And their minds are also your higher minds: The Super-conscious minds.
Why are you not aware of this? Because your Consciousness is limited by your human mind!
Your human thoughts, mind and body are blocking your awareness of these other higher parts and dimensions of you.
To become aware of the higher dimensions of your being, (your higher self, other parts, beyond your humanity) you must go beyond your human mind and body.
When you go beyond your human body and mind, you’ll go beyond space and time, beyond past and future, and you’ll become INFINITY, an IMMORTAL (You become born again)
God is a symbol that represents Consciousness or INFINITY.
Human DNA Holds Consciousness
Consciousness, the essence of the self which thinks and feels, regardless of whether or not we are incarnate in a physical body, resides within the DNA of the human body. This means that we have to change our DNA in order to shift consciousness, and it also means that when we change our consciousness, we change our DNA_ From the old world view scientific perspective, the idea of being able to change our DNA is considered impossible. Too many of us have been brought up with the understanding that we inherit our DNA from our parents and are stuck with those aspects of being human.
We cannot discount the facts of our existing bodies, but we can begin to change our thinking to accept that we can — and do — change our physical bodies on a day to day basis. Because change happens cell by cell, we often don’ t notice it until sufficient cells within a specific organ of our bodies have changed. This creates a very noticeable effect. Nothing in the human body is static and every single one of our cells is renewing themself, or dying, all the time. The author and endocrinologist, Deepak Chopra, popularized this notion of mind body medicine in his book ‘Ageless Body, Timeless Mind’ and ‘Quantum Healing’ , among others.
It is so much more beneficial for us to change the patterns of our cellular behaviour consciously, rather than let the cells continue to respond to the influences of our subconscious minds, or our unconscious, minds, as well as the myriad of influences from the environment and people around us. Changing cellular patterns amounts to reprogramming the cells. As they respond to the vibrations of our new, consciously created, habits of thought and emotion —especially high frequency ones such as love, peace, tolerance and compassion —they themselves harmonically resonate with these created vibrations. This amounts to the development of new habits of cellular behaviour. And thus we evolve, by choice.
In support of DNA changes, we can easily utilize high frequency outside sources of information to raise our resonance. With these high frequency vibrations coursing throughout our bodies, we naturally supply the necessary information to our cells that enable them to change the way they do things. Cells readily respond to anything of a higher frequency nature than themselves, because all living organisms will be drawn towards anything of a higher order.
If a raised resonance vibration is maintained within, or repeated often enough, it becomes the new order within. This higher level of cellular functioning naturally creates a better quality of life, overall.
The consequence of reprogramming our cells is that we will increase our awareness of what is already out there. In this way we trust the process of life more easily, we go with the flow of life more easily and we create what we want more easily. This all amounts to the collapse of resistance and the acceptance of our creative abilities. Life becomes happier and easier, and health, joy, abundance and love flows from this.
