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 Nlanifestation
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
