Alchemist's OCCULT Laboratory


ALCHEMY of BEING, an OCCULT (HIDDEN) treasure of ancient WISDOM

It is because of the inherent danger to the mind of those who are NOT yet ready to take giant step in their very own personal evolution, that mystical traditions refuse to give it to the masses, and have refused to give it for thousands of years.

The secrecy was to protect the immature and naïve; you had to be an old soul, or at least forty years of age. Also, to provide maximum attention and care, they would only share the fire mysteries with one individual at a time, per teacher.

The entire Bible and teachings of the Emerald Tablet are NOT for young souls, they simply will not understand it, and will turn away, that's why the Bible should be kept out of the hands of the Common man. He or she will step on it and trample the teachings under foot. "you can't cast PEARLS (wisdom) amongst SWINE (lower minded gross animal souls).

The Bible, the Emerald tablet, the Gita, the Rig veda, the Upanishads, Buddhas teachings etal... are all very highly esoteric teachings, and were never meant for the M-ASSES, crouched between two burdens, the left and right hemispheres of their own brains.

CONJUNCTION is the fourth of the seven operations of alchemy.

Chemically, it is the recombination of the saved elements from Separation into a new substance. In the Arcanum Experiment, Conjunction is symbolized by a nitrate compound known as cubic-saltpeter or potassium nitrate, which the alchemists called Natron or simply Salt.

Blue-colored Natron acid (aqua fortis) was made by mixing potassium nitrate with sulfuric acid and was used to separate silver from gold. The inert residue precipitated from the acid during the reaction like a child being born.

Psychologically, it is empowerment of our true selves, the union of both the masculine and feminine sides of our personalities into a new belief system or an intuitive state of consciousness.

The alchemists referred to it as the Lesser Stone, and after it is achieved, the adept is able to clearly discern what needs to be done to achieve lasting enlightenment, which is union with the Overself. Often, synchronicities begin to occur that confirm the alchemist is on the right track.

Physiologically, Conjunction is using the body’s base energies for personal transformation. Conjunction takes place in the body at the level of the Heart or Copper Chakra.

In Society, it is the growth of crafts and technology to master the environment.

On the Planetary level, Conjunction occurs when primordial life forms are created from the energy of the Sun or lightning.


According to the Emerald Tablet, "The Earth is its nurse." Element: Earth. Color: Green (color of this page). Planet: Venus. Metal: Copper.

“Rosa alchemica” (published in 1896)

As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man and the face of a lion, on the right side; and they had the face of an ox on the left side; the four also had the face of an eagle.

This is the realm of the alchemical mysteries of the Philosopher’s Stone. Spagyric herbal alchemy removes the cost price of your personal vitality extracted by the ferry man, across the river Styxx -the Void.

The whole focus being to replete depletion. You cannot continue the ascension process while depleting your personal vitality. The construction of the red lion, inner, edible, gold magnet, to attract life force is a foundation to attract vitality.

The incubation of the secret life-oils, adding repletion, establishes energy self sufficiency, a transition from dependency to maturity.

We are collecting lost divine sparks and building the holy chariot of Ezekiel’s vision, the Merkarba Vehicle of the four holy animals, a Man, Bull, Eagle and Lion; the celestial chariot (merkavah), representative of the four most majestic creatures and together symbolizing the evolved divine spirit from the tutelage of the Divine Sphinx. " The FOUR quadrants of the Zodiac and the FOUR angels holding the FOUR corners of the Earth.

Personally I do not believe completion of the Philosopher’s Stone is possible without the inspiration of a divine tutor, who arrives when the student is ready, having done the preparatory work. The arrival of the tutor is the initiation into fire itself.

The tutor impresses a concentrated, deep previously unknown to the human mind. A teacher or tutor can be in the form of a book, or a website, and doesn't always have to in the form of a live physical person.

The Book of Enoch describes the first human to finish the soul evolution process and as intercessor for all human kind inspires Christ energy to all the reformers such as Jesus and Buddha and is the highest ranking angel, Metatron, but prefers to be known and goes informally as Hank.

A highest authority, he appears as an eagle or birdman, falcon, hawk, ibis, to all shamanic traditions who place him atop their totemic poles. He is best known to us as Horus, of the Egyptians. I have experienced IT. In traditions, he appears signalling the end of that particular world cycle, and if James Lovelock is correct that is soon, and also the end of initiates’ old selves.

Enochian Magickal system deals with the final stages of the soul’s evolution, the upper circulation, whose motif is the intelligence of the veil of the Abyss (man's lower desire mind).

How well one has built the base of the soul’s pyramidal structure is here tested. Complete rebuilds are not uncommon. The magical seals (chakras) were meant to provide a shield of protection against being overcome by the higher vibrational states, by practice at acclimation with them before a full encounter.


"Built I the Great Pyramid (Light body), patterned after the pyramid of earth force, burning eternally so that it, too, might remain through the ages. In it, I built my knowledge of "Magic-Science" so that it might be here when again I return from Amenti. Aye, while I sleep in the Halls of Amenti, my Soul roaming free will incarnate, dwell among men in this form or another. (Hermes, thrice-born.)"

Flexible consciousness facilitates the easiest transition to the realm of fire. The alchemical Red Lion feeds psyche enabling, edible gold Ormus, to act as a magnet for the higher Shemayim prima material. Many initial breakthroughs into the fire realm are maddening, as traffic exposure to conceptual irregularity is the norm.

The methods employed, in order to overcome this problem, are to retreat into darkness, such as that of a cave, for initiation purposes, to retune the nervous system. The other method employed, beside that of hallucinogens, is via engineered dreams. The cave id Plato's cave, the oracle st Delphi, etc... The cave is the silent meditation in Darkness.

At the point of capturing the subconscious automatic process, via consciously accessing the hypnogogic state, one will become aware that one is being carried along by a natural, ongoing, automatic mechanism as one’s consciousness spirals through an internally caught stargate of a wormhole at Daath.

One’s dreams are as storms of electrons imbued with bio-photon light, and it is conjectured that at a sub-atomic level one can find mini wormholes, whereby, at the level of the dream, one’s introverted consciousness can access such mini wormholes into other realities.

The experience of consciously accessing ones dream’s gives one an insight into the formula of the Tetragrammaton, which in the Hebrew is IHVH, and in translation, Yod, He, Vau, He, being the name of God.

When one gains conscious internal ingress, via the hypnogogic veil, one becomes as the fertilising seed point of the spermatozoic serpent of consciousness, that of the fiery 'Yod' of the energetic emotive charge. It is here that one encounters the Father whom calls out the ‘word’ into the void, so to split the Egg of the dream.

Then one is sucked into the hypnogogic Yoni portal of a wormhole at 'He', whereby one experiences the process of informational associative patterning. It is here that one encounters the Mother principle of the fertilised womb.

The informational streams emanating from a myriad number of alternate realities, existing in a myriad number of parallel universes that flow through the Yoni portal of the internal wormhole, are spun into filtered associations of informational retrieval.

The spun informational streams then become as a vaginal star-barrelled torsion tunnel upon one’s energetic, emotively charged ingress.

The filtering of the informational streams emanating from a myriad number of worlds, both past and future, are filtered through one’s internally imprinted, symbolic interface to an emotively charged dialogue, that one has with one’s self.

The spun informational streams are then cohered and organised around ones emotive charge, into an interference pattern, which is nailed down at 'Vau'. It is here that the Son is at the midst of conditions, crucified upon the cross of four directions, whom squares a circle.

At the greatest point of torsion, one finds the informational streams are nailed down into an informational associative, fractal dream domain of fixative inertia, for one becomes as the ‘strange attractor’ nailed down to ones own fixation.

The ‘interference pattern’, of the fractal dream domain that one finds ones self within, is that of the Implicate Order of the 'mental' dreaming reality of the collective unconscious. The symbolic information that one encounters within the dream is the distillation of encrypted symbol knots of information, the total organising work of many associative minds.

One will find that the symbolic interface of the dream is somewhat akin to a mirrored bowl, for it reflects back one’s own reality, the polarised energetic emotive charge into an associative fractal pattern of symbolic triggers, all growing together from collective effort, in participation, in a single repeating pattern.

In the morning, the conscious mind has new emails of understanding, from the previous night’s collective dreaming labour.

At a certain point, one is then drawn out of the Implicate Order of the dreaming mind, into that of the Explicate Order of 'material' reality, via the hypnopompic yoni portal of a wormhole, at 'He'.

What one will then experience at 'He', upon one’s egress out of the Implicate Order of the dreaming mind, is that of the phenomena of synchronicity, within the Explicate Order of reality.

It is at this point one will encounter the Divine Daughter, your own soul, dancing the seven veils of illusion, reflecting back one’s own self, weaving its garment from access to the original cosmic template, the virgin birth.

One then finds that the trigger symbols of synchronicity, experienced within the Explicate Ordered reality, will correlate with the internally experienced symbols of the prior Implicate Ordered dream.

Synchronicities experienced within Explicate Ordered reality generate an energetic emotive charge of a Yod, within , which again is fed back into the internal portal of the soul’s weaving circulation; one then becomes aware that it is a continuous feedback loop of a serpentine merkhaba of phenomena.

One can look at the Merkhaba vehicle as being two separate triangular pyramids on their sides, facing each other, each being the three-fold fire nature of their circulation’s domain. The alchemical work, practically and psychologically, effects mirroring of one upon the other into weaving a unified field.

A meld of psychological physics unfolds, as your former energy inertia is made to rise and imitate a higher intelligence. At the mid-point of the equilibrium between the 3rd and 4th chakras, one becomes aware of the lightening flash of the serpent of seven seals that one feels as shimmering up and down ones spine constantly, fixing consciousness into a chosen synchronicity mesh of experiential reality.

As conscious competency is gained, to stabilise and ingress into the portal of a wormhole at the Void/Daath, one can consciously unite consciousness into another internal branch of the tree of Life and immortality, an alternate 'mental' reality, allowing the Divine cognition to descend into normal life, manifesting itself from the original template.

The name of the Serpent Deity is the 'word' one unconsciously utters as a Primal Scream, from the soul’s depths, into the void, as one is sucked into the energy-Yoni portal of a wormhole at Daath, into then consciously generating the phenomenon of synchronicity.

As a baby screams at birth, or is considered dead, till it breaths, so the serpent’s life force is something which cannot be artificially forced, but prepared.

It is both the scream of the death of the old self and birth of the new. The intensity of the scream word uttered will determine the level and nature of one’s capacity to hold focus of the new ground, enter into the new reality; a dream domain made concrete only as the symbolic triggers, reflected back at oneself within the Implicate Order of the dream, are understood.

This, in turn, will determine how the unfolding process is geared to your needs, by correlating symbolic expression of the phenomena of synchronicity, of attraction of what one needs, and repulsion of what is expelled, experienced as purification through ascending Shemayim fires within ones Explicate Ordered Reality, whereby one will find one’s own self as the deity sought for.

The Elements- Quintessence and Void 5 Quintessence


Spirit is the seventh dimension, symbolised by the ultimate receptivity of the open arms or lotus/rose flower or horns of the Goddess, as a radar dish attuned to receive the divine. This is the crown chakra opening to cosmic consciousness, as a result of a marriage between all the opposites, from the completion of the great soul work.

The negative ego is annihilated, as the male self is purified from the fiery journey to this destination. The negative male ego is crucified upon the tree of the divine feminine. The Sun has merged with the Moon, Ida and Pingala in the Indian Tradition.

Heaven, Nirvana, Samadhi etc.....

In freemasonry, a tracing board of a black coffin with a pentagram marks the death of the negative male ego, which is its place of death and rebirth to the feminine mysteries, symbolised by the pentagram.

The process begun with the first of the three mothers, in the water element, is now finalised. The number seven is purely female, as its division does not allow it to break down into male numbers. Carlos Castenada said, that 90% of the majority of the ascended evolved universe is female.

The soul’s work of seeking equilibrium of the conflicting temporary, opposite, planetary energies, makes the permanent divine androgyny. The first human to complete the departure cycle into physical matter and return.

Ethiopian and Slavonic books say of Enoch, whose flesh was turned into flame, veins to fire, eyelashes to flashes of lightening, eyeballs to flaming torches, and whom god placed on the throne next to the throne of glory, received after this heavenly transformation, the name of Metatron.

God took me from the race of the flood and carried me on stormy wings of the Shekihiah to the heights of the seventh heaven, Araboth. p67, Gershom Shalom

Stephen King said the road to heaven and hell are the same (fire); all we can do is prepare for it (the flood also). When the student is ready, the teacher comes, who ever this is; the permanent reunion with the Mother Father Godhead.

The basic pattern of the Kabbalistic Sephirot has been passed through four times previously in earth, water, air, fire, each time with different values, but the same template pattern.

The purpose, to learn that the template pattern is the key and law and structure of the whole universe. By knowing this One, you can know the complexity of All.

This is the aim of the psychological journey of discovering the philosopher’s stone. Looking into any detail anywhere, the pattern repeats itself as the template of created evolution. The temple in us is out brain, so that means that the temple up there, is the entire COSMOS.

6 The Infinity of the VOID is the eighth dimensional gateway.

Eighth zodiac sign Scorpio, the world dragon.

8 is the infinity of the void. Eight, and the octagon, represent resurrection and rebirth, and baptism, because Christ rose from the grave 8 days after entry into Jerusalem. Thus, they became symbols of baptism, the spiritual rebirth of a person; and many baptismal fonts are octagonal.

Voids separate all dimensions, but this is a void of voids, where to go beyond means the final end to an individual personality. The individualised universe shares an intimate cosmic, divine presence.

Essence is the core self and the oversoul orb in the ninth dimensional world, but remains outside the ninth gate. Passing beyond this gate into the ninth realm is to relinquish individuality and personality in its totality.

Where the other voids were means of ascension in soul work, this once entered,and you never incarnate into humanity again. It is total absorption back to the original place of departure.

Reconciling Extreme Cosmic Opposites

This shows the effect of ingestion of 8 ounces of magnetic Ormus trap water made from a spring source.

By: tgecks

Notice that before taking Ormus trap water, the ball shape is only vaguely seen. In the right hand purple picture it shows our ball of energy, the Divine Spirit, which is also called the Oversoul/Orb, very clearly located in the crown chakra.

When its energy is repleted, it has the increased capacity to send down a higher vibrational level to aspire towards this energy. Notice in the upper chart the difference between Divine Spirit and Life Spirit. The above colours are from the Divine Spirit, not your soul, the Life Spirit.

Aura photos are not a gauge of the energy of your soul, but are showing the aspirational energy sent out of the Divine Spirit, the Higher Self, Oversoul/Orb, for the human soul to aspire toward.

You are the Life Spirit, a PHOTON, a particle or fragment of light (god), which is a green colour, and can contribute to increase oversoul/orb positive effects.

If your over soul is supported and fed by alchemy, such as in the above picture, then it has the increased capacity to send down the next level of higher vibrational energy, which if you make it habitually yours, by integrating it into the lower life spirit soul/shadow, will raise the primal life force of the energy of your lowest aspect, the human shadow.

This brings up the great gulf between what people aspire to and what they really are.

Basil Valentine’s VITRIOL emblem

The sun and the moon are the opposites in man that have to be united. The sun being the Divine Spirit (yin) which never incarnates and the moon being the Green Life spirit (yang) which is the focus of our great work of purification and raising out of the pit. The chalice is the alchemical 'vas' or vat, symbol for the body. The planetary signs represent different stages of the alchemical process.

The double eagle is Mercury, the lion is Sulfur and the star is Salt, the three ingredients of the process. The left globe with clouds is the microcosmos; the right globe with the stars is the macrocosmos. (Solomon Trismosinus, Aurum vellus, Hamburg, 1708)

In the outer circle is the Latin sentence of vitriolum

Ninth Astral Plane

The shield colours in the above diagram signify the transformation of the human shadow/soul/ primal life force essence. They are seen psychically as fluorescent colours, starting with green, then blue and finally crimson. They correspond to the interaction with the 3 Mothers, Water, Air, and Fire.

Also known as 'Nirvana' or nothingness where the soul is purged of everything ready for the return to God, but in a most unexpected way. Considering, the Emerald Tablet says:

8. It ascends by means of earth into heaven and again it descends into the earth, and retakes the power of the superiors and of the inferiors.

9. Thus, you have the glory of the whole world.

10. Therefore may it drive out of you all obscurity.

It is suggesting, once Heaven has been reached the natural cycle, makes all things to descend again, as Basil Valentine is suggesting we see into the purified Earth to find the secret stone.

The jewels of immortality we are after, are always guarded by a dragon (an old one). Just as in Tolkien’s, The Hobbit, the quest was to enter a dragon’s cave and take that which was the precious, away from the golem (personal shadow, negative ego). This is the same Dragon as is in the book of revelations, it's the lower ego mind, or the first three primal chakra centers, that's the abode of the MONSTER.

I am convinced that western alchemy tradition has been left alone, due to its mystical complexity, from being tampered and distorted by interpretations.

It draws inspiration heavily from the Hebrew collection of mystical commentaries, The Zohar, which is responsible for the tree of life matrix, the Kabbalah, describing the fiery action of the three mothers purifying the Earth element.

Apart from the chemical implications of what the green vitriol is, after reading Daniel Pinchbeck's excellent book on 2012, I was inspired to explain weird green visions I have had in a different light.

What is the genuine green vitriol of the alchemists? We are led more closely to an understanding by trying to understand the meaning of the word 'vitriol'. 'Vitriolum' is a contraction of the initial letters of the following Latin sentence:

Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Inveniens Occultum Lapidem Veram Medicinam. Or in one of the possible translations:

"See in the interior of the purified earth, and you will find the secret stone, the true medicine".

Thus the fluoro-green coloured vitriol was a code name for the original substance of the starting crude prima material of the philosopher's stone, the lost divine sparks, the life force of the human shadow/soul.

What is the genuine green vitriol of the alchemists? Answer, it is you, your shadow.

I have read the above quote for years and misunderstood its real meaning, ‘till very recently experiencing lack of sleep due to cancer pain. One of many pain fever delirium’s with eyes shut, horrible moving fluorine green images set against a black background would constellate merging in and out with ghoulish faces in my mind’s eye of the astral gloom of my being.

“ABHORRENT“, by Brian William Hastings This thing of Darkness I acknowledge as mine. –Prospero, in the TEMPEST.

Only on the firm foundation of unyielding despair can the soul’s habitation hence forth be built. -Bertrand Russel.

Green Death, by Odilon Redon 1905.

According to Carl Jung, green-gold is the colour that alchemists saw as an expression of the life spirit permeating man and matter.

C.G. Jung identified "The Emerald Tablet" with a table made of green stone, which he encountered in the first of a set of his dreams and visions beginning at the end of 1912, and climaxing in his writing the Seven Sermons to the Dead in 1916. Contemporary rendering of Latin text:

1. True, without error, certain and most true

2. That which is above is as that which is below, and that which is below is as that which is above, to perform the miracles of the one thing.

3. And as all things were from [the] one, by [means of] the meditation of [the] one, thus all things of the daughter from [the] one, by [means of] adaptation.

4. Its father is the sun, its mother[,]the moon, the wind carried it in its belly, its nurse is the earth.

5. The father of all the looms of the whole world is here.

6. Its power is integrating if it be turned into earth.

7. Separate the earth from the fire, the fine from the dense, delicately, by [means of/to] the great [together] with capacity.

8. It ascends by [means of] earth into heaven and again it descends into the earth, and retakes the power of the superior[s] and of the inferior[s].

9. Thus[,] you have the glory of the whole world.

10. Therefore may it drive out of you, all obscurity.

11. This is the whole of the strength of the strong force, because it overcomes all fine things, and penetrates all the complete.

12. Thus[,] the world has been created.

13. Hence they were wonderful adaptations, of which this is the manner.

14. Therefore[,] I am Hermes the Thrice Great, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world.

15. What I have said concerning the operation of the Sun has been completed.

The Emerald Tablet, also known as Smaragdine Table, Tabula Smaragdina, or The Secret of Hermes, is an ancient text purporting to reveal the secret of the primordial substance. It claims to be the work of Hermes Trismegistus "Hermes the Thrice-Great", a legendary Egyptian sage or god.

Green Lion: The stem and root of the radical essence of the metals and the soul, and raw crude and unpurified energy of nature and the soul’s human shadow. Symbol of the living life force sought in the First Matter.

The beginning of the work, a fluoro-green energy is seen with eyes shut, in the astral gloom. It is the Shekhina, lifespark trapped in the Earth element, entombed by ghouls and gnomes, reflected off your own personal destructive energy.

It is this which is watched and seen to change colour as the soul transforms. In the tattwa colour cards system, the process starts at its crudest with the flouro-yellow/green of the earth element, and reaches the blue of the air element, making this very bright fluoro-green, which is when enough freedom has been leveraged from the gnome elementals to see your own soul energy, hence the green lion.

Then, the green advances into the red of fire, cancelling each other out into a purple, black void of the quintessence, signaling the soul’s freedom from entombment by the earth elementals, and complete escape from the Earth element and entry into the element of Water, the alchemical symbol of the living lifeforce spark sought in the First Matter.

This image can be used to indicate a beginning of the work on a practical or physical level within the Earth element, both doing practical, creating an elixir or tincture, as well as a mandala for meditation, to begin the process of cleansing the soul or body of the spiritual alchemist, in the Ninth Astral Plane, also known as 'Nirvana' or nothingness, where the soul is purged of everything, ready for the return to God.

The following insight on the earth elementals is from reading Daniel Pinchbeck’s excellent, 2012, The Return of Quetzalcoatl, page 140.

According to Rudolf Steiner,” gnomes and ghouls of the mineral earth element always work beneath the surface of the planet in earth mineral layers and take on a similar role in our dream lives. The gnomes are at work in our psychic soul life in our subconscious depths.

Anyone who gets to the stage of experiencing dreams in full consciousness on falling asleep is well acquainted with the gnomes. Steiner noted, for somebody unprepared, the experience would be an alarming one; at the moment of falling asleep he would behold a host of goblins coming toward him…

The form in which they would appear would be reflections, images of the qualities of the individual concerned, that work as forces of destruction. He would perceive all the destructive forces within him, all that continually destroys.” If we were able to remain conscious of what we dreamed, what we would perceive would be a kind of entombment by gnomes in the astral world.


Behind the more innocent appearing children’s book characters of gnomes hide more sinister forces, which shamanic cultures hold responsible for soul theft. The whole purpose of alchemy and the western mystery tradition comes to a final focus of reclaiming the lost human shadow soul from the Earth elementals.

At the age of 45 I was diagnosed with a terminal cancer, and given 8 years to live.

As I write, I am now in my seventh year. I will spare you from the obvious pain and depressing details, but preserve the lessons I learnt in an orgiastic synchronicity of revelations unto my predicament.

Because of the pain, I could not properly sleep for the first two years. Friday and Saturday nights were the worst. In the beginning of one of many fever deliriums with eyes shut, horrible fluorine green images set against a black background would constellate, merging in and out with ghoulish faces in my mind’s eye of the astral pits of my being.

I totally agree that these are only seen as reflections of my own destructive energies, as Daniel correctly states in part 3 of chapter two, Lucifer and Ahriman. I felt I was abandoned inside the intestines of something bigger.

Forced to watch a cosmic play within the astral gloom and being squeezed along by a cosmic peristalsis along with these astral ghouls. For two slow years I had noticed the horrible process was making slow progress. Then a faint background image which I mistook for a frightening shape in my fear and ignorance.

It was appearing now not of the green fluoro colour of the horror faces, but a fire of golden crimson, in symbol of the alchemist’s mercury or the philosopher’s stone. If I focused upon this symbol with all my pathetic strength, which was really weakness, the ghouls would diminish and the intensity of the symbol’s fire would appear to come closer, and a positive, uplifting, illuminating commentary about its meaning would communicate itself as joy to me.

I did not know it then, but it was what the Jews call the Shekhina (there is fire). Something they too only discovered through extreme suffering.

The Zohar says the more a male (yang) soul sins, the further away the Shekhina (Divine Feminine Fire) moves from that soul. My suffering had produced an alchemical calcining of my destructive energies, and the positive progressive direction my yang soul had taken, within the astral gloom, had allowed Her to draw closer.

The jewels of immortality we are after, are always guarded by a dragon (an old one). Just as in Tolkien’s, The Hobbit, the quest was to enter a dragon’s cave and take that which was the precious, away from the golem (personal shadow, negative ego).

The jewels of immortality are the fire of the Shekhina, your own opposite Yin soul, trapped and held captive by the dragon, or the biting Serpent that bit the Israelites, which is the personal destructive energy. The cave is the Earth element and other elementals, negative yin seeking their opposite, your own unbalanced negative yang soul.

Notice that the jhin gnomes and greys never steal hippies and yin yang balanced people. They are only after the negative opposite,which they lack, the male biased yang souls.
Remembering that, I was saved from the astral gloom of ghouls by regaining my yin opposite fire, the Shekhina. This is the true medicine.

On what is eating us all:

The Sick Rose

O rose thou art sick.
The invisible worm
That flies in the night
In the howling storm
Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy,
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.

—William Blake from Songs of Innocence and Experience, P 37

Obscure poems and sayings which meant nothing before were now making real sense.

The culmination of the suffering consciously in the astral gloom process I went through was to become totally nauseated by the extreme bias of my own male yang soul. In the Naked Lunch, Burroughs is playing shooting games and killing his female partner (yin self).

What was suggested by our contemporary William, William Burroughs, in his novel, The Naked Lunch, he tried to generate a sense of a state of total emergency, while you can still act against the etheric and astral parasites.

Giant insects, which he called Martins, are stealing your Orgons (life force). So that you would never notice them doing it, they give you a false emotional mood, which makes you hate silence (the void) and stillness. To counteract the void’s silence and the capacity for self-reflection, this mood always keeps you busy and makes you feel safe in a white kitten fantasy. -William Burroughs Reader p.202- 217

Back to page 140 of Daniel Pinchbeck’s 2012… I have another insight to contribute: The initial stage of the Bardo, in the Tibetan Book of the Dead, IS THE SAME EXPERIENCE as Rudolf Steiner’s jhin and gnomes description of conscious dreaming, as an entombment by gnomes in the astral world.

It is curious to note, that in most mythological history of all cultures, it is always the same dynamic; in the dark earth elementals, the jhin or yin gnomes are only stealing yang, male biased human souls of either sex. If a soul energy is in perfect equilibrium, it is free of the dark yin of the earth elementals.

Sophie Scholl stood up against the Nazi’s for exterminating the protesters, the ill, deformed, and Jews, for the rich contribution “the suffering” could make for better understanding of humanity. My own suffering has yielded riches which only those who have encountered similar suffering would see as riches.

The Pit

The Pit of karmic destruction, for an alchemist, holds an exciting confirmation of the years of struggle and work. The green lion and the green lifespirit reveal a historic starting point for transformation of the personal shadow’s most destructive soul energy. It is identical to the concept of the Buddhist Wheel of Life and Death.

The dead experience the processing by the four elements, in the Bardo of becoming, where they are purified by the fire of the elements, toward the soul’s liberation; and an exact parallel process is described in European alchemy, starting with the fluoro-green lion.

Our soul is reborn in hell, the pit. The virginal birth of our soul is purified in the Earth element, by living in the human body and voluntary, conscious suffering; recognising one’s own destructive energies as the crude green lion, we have the eyes to discover the greatest secrets, purified earth.

This is an actual place, lying lower than the first plane. It is darker, more loathsome than the lowest of the astrals. This is being reborn back in the FIRST Chakra.

This is the place we, on earth, call 'Hell', although it bears no resemblance to the hell depicted in the Bible and taught to us by church leaders and parents. Only the very greatest evil part of each person can find itself there, evil that has practically lost its semblance to humanity; it is a composite etheric shadow form resulting from the lost souls of past incarnations.

Dante’s nine levels of hell are three elements: water, air, fire, working in their destructive modality. Here, the function of the divine fire is reversed from creative construction of immortality, to perform destruction of the energy of the negative ego; transmutation of the crude, raw life force within the Earth.

Nature provides extensive examples of sustainability being facilitated by balance. Each individual self-judges themself, as it is they who’ve chosen to assemble qualities of equilibrium of opposites or imbalance, which perishes of itself.

Divine humour has its joking quality, hide away; Alchemy’s biggest secrets in the pit of hell, the destructive energies of the Earth Element… among the patriarchal ghoulish gnomes.

Where the upper octave is inhabited by peaceful deities, teaching wisdom to the voluntary initiate, who engages the divine fire, as a peak experience of continuously unfolded revelation, the pit contains wrathful deities, earth elementals, charged with the karmic destruction of involuntary individuals’ negative, male-biased ego, by the very same divine fire assembling the immortal body. Where the stages of intensity of the initiating fire are gauged by the elements water, air, fire, so the levels in the pit serve the same initiatory function.

All mystical texts agree that every individual, at some point in their soul’s past evolution, pass through destructive energies of the pit, according to their individual correction required.

The fool’s bridge, in the pit between water and air, is a grace, a last chance of escape, and crossing to the return cycle, which reflects the same opportunity missed in the above octave.

At this point exist the Fundamentalist traditions, perched upon a precipice of final destruction. Here there is no circulation of energies, as in the upper circle, with so little contact and comparison with the upper energies allowing any warning of impending destruction, due to excessive imbalance. The qualities of duality are, at this point, at maximum effect and are self reinforcing to justify a precarious position, whose real predicament is only redeemed by a divine shock.

The destruction of the natural world and the hundreds of issues which bring us closer to annihilation, like a runaway train, are there to facilitate the foundation of the soul. Instead of the mythical dying god phenomenon, we are encountering, in a contemporary way, something more close and intimate; the dying planet. Our soul is being evoked by the display of death before us.

For those who have been holding on to their ignorance and avoiding the cosmic evolutionary purpose, symbolised in the Kabbalah, where the micro man and the cosmic man are one, denial of this relationship increases planetary disequilibrium. Your very neglect effects a star somewhere out there, as the Buddha said, "disturb a flowers pedals, and it will effect the stars."

The soul, during its earthly stay, weaves its garment, which it is destined to wear after death, in the lower Paradise. Only the souls of sinners are naked, or the garment they weave in time and out of time has holes in it. After death, the various parts of the soul have accomplished their mission and return to their original location; but those who have sinned are purified by the fiery stream.

p.248, Gershom Shalom, Major Trends In Jewish Mysticism.

Jesus said: "Let him who seeks, continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All." - The Gospel of Thomas, verse 2

and as long as you do not have the wisdom to die, to become, you will only be a sad guest on this dark earth. - Goethe

The descent into the subconscious is not without dangers. In the psychological sense, it can result, for example, in schizophrenia. In mythology, the hero penetrates the underworld to fight monsters and demons.

The Great Mother appears to him, in the image of a terrible being, wrathful deity, often as the Ruler of Death. For his courage and bravery, the Great Mother, as goddess of fertility, offers him hidden treasure and great knowledge and wisdom.

In alchemy, when working with (symbolic) metals, Lead is used as initial material. The alchemists say that in lead there is a demon, who can cause insanity. Lead, as a metal, is under the rulership of Saturn, god of suffering, melancholy and depression, who causes ailments and devilish visions of ghouls, and your own personal shadow, the green life spirit.

Here, Lead is symbolic of the human shadow, the lower gross mind. Lead, the most impure metal, needs to be transformed into the pure metal, gold. In general, lead means impurity, the impure body, or impure man. The metal lead is the most unbalanced of all metals; its toxicity upon ingestion is its inherent electron shortage, needing a quench from the availability of electrons within the body.

The individual with lead poisoning dies by having all their antioxidants consumed by the lead. The action of the lead seeking to balance its inequilibrium is the same as the initiate seeking its opposite to balance itself. The alchemical process stabilizes lead by feeding it what it lacks.

He who wants to enter the divine realm, first must enter his mother’s body, and die herein. - Paracelsus

Carl Gustav Jung said: " He who looks in the mirror of the water, first sees his own image. He who looks at himself, risks to meet himself. The mirror does not flatter, it shows accurately what is reflected in it, namely that face that we never show the world because we hide it by the persona, the mask of the actor.

This is the first test of courage on the inner path, a test, which is enough to frighten most people, because the encounter with oneself belongs to those unpleasant things, one avoids as long as one can project the negative onto the environment."

"If the man [the soul] had not separated from the woman [the spirit], he would not die with the woman.


12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to THE DIVIDING ASUNDER OF SOUL AND SPIRIT, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The Word of God “divides asunder” or separates the soul and spirit of man because they are two separate and distinct entities. There would be no need to divide them if they were the same. For instance, if you tried to separate water from water, you would find it is impossible. You cannot separate something from itself.

But two distinct entities can be separated. For example, when water and dirt are mixed together in a container, the muddy water is still basically made up of two different elements: water and dirt. If left undisturbed, the mud would settle to the bottom of the container. The mud could be separated from the water, because dirt and water are two separate entities.

The soul is you, it is the fragmented particle called in science a PHOTON, the spirit, is the bodies energy source, it is the battery, it is plugged in via the chakras, and is powered by the 7 Elohim, 7 lords of thime etc....It is ELectromagnetism.

His separation became the beginning of death.
Because of this, Christ came to repair the separation which was from the beginning, and again unite the two, and to give life to those who died as a result of the separation and unite them."
- The Gospel of Philip 70:9-22

The integration of both the soul and the spirit will NOT leave a residue image of the person after their physical body dies, as in a ghost or apparition.

To the Degree We Are Willing to Give Up of Ourselves, to that Degree We Have Life

Watch the movie about the life of jazz musician, singer Ray Charles, to get some idea of what I mean as he battled his inner demons. Some readers may complain that my message is too depressing, constantly asking you to look at your garbage. The reason for this is, the only way to get to heaven, is to go through hell first.

I have already provided a positive framework which is meant to function as a safety net to catch all the pieces, when you fall apart exploring the dark self. Author Janov, in his primal therapy, made the mistake of not providing a positive context, before opening up to your demons. Safety first, when dealing with explosives, is common sense.

It is because of this inherent danger that mystical traditions refuse to give it to the masses. The secrecy was to protect the immature and naïve; you had to be an old soul, or at least forty years of age. Also, to provide maximum attention and care, they would only share the fire mysteries with one individual at a time, per teacher.

The aborigines stayed years with initiates to get them through safely. It’s about getting down into the core of our problems. Any medical, emotional, financial disturbances we are now experiencing stems from a core issue reflected as a medical, emotional, financial image.

It means going through a door we don’t know exists. It requires digging and pushing through the dark to find that door. It can feel claustrophobic, dark, eerie. But when we find that door - and break it open - on the other side is our personal heaven.

Today, take a risk and open your heart to a trusted friend. Tell them things about yourself you’ve never dared tell anyone before. Make yourself vulnerable and allow the Light to rest on those darkened parts of your consciousness where your door is hiding.

In alchemy, the entrance into the subconscious is represented by the entrance into caves, by reports of travels to the underworld, or strange parts of the world. Another important representation is the king who is taking a bath.

The consciousness is the king, and the bath or bath water is the subconscious.

By bathing, he enters into the subconscious. In alchemical terms he is being permeated by the water (aqua permanens) or quicksilver of his own feminine. Anyone who claims to perform alchemy, yet remains biased toward patriarchal values, lies to themselves.
Another symbol is the ‘coniunctio’ (conjunction) or ‘conceptio’ (conception), which primarily takes place in water, in a spring or a fountain. The queen then represents the feminine water, the subconscious.

Ezekiel digged a hole in a wall in the Bible, this is looking into one's own subconscious content, and it's full of abominations, creepy things and flying things.

Primitive people performed their initiations in darkness or under the ground, like in caves. In Egypt, initiations were performed in the pyramids or in underground crypts of the temples. In Persia it was mostly in caves, with native Indians it is special huts.

The Mythras mysteries were conducted in temples built underground. The initiation itself was symbolized by the penetration of the belly of the Great Mother, or of the body of a sea monster or wild animal.

In Greek mythology, Orpheus descended into the Hades, to look for Eurydice (symbol of his lost soul). The Indian god Krishna descended into the hells to look for his six brothers (the six chakras, Krishna being the crown chakra). There is a legend, that after his death, Jesus descended into the realm of Satan to save the soul of Adam (the pure man).

Going into the subconscious also means to go into the collective consciousness we all share. In Greek mythology there was Tartaros, a name originally used for the entire underworld.

Tartaros is the psychic world deep in man, where all those nasty emotions reside, like the lust for murder and destruction; thirst for blood, fear, hate, revenge; the lust for power, melancholy and so on.

It is not easy to admit to oneself, but they all reside in ourselves. Because we don’t like it, we have cut ourselves off from being aware of this dark realm. We have repressed all our dark emotions into this deep realm of Tartaros. This is the heritage of man, dating from ancient times.

The task of man is to feel and be responsible for all his emotions, not to repress them, but to change and transmute them into higher feelings.

Repression chains man to the very objects of repression, but purification will transmute them to positive elements, bringing him closer to his true essence. So long as we do not take up the Great Work, pain and misery will disturb our lives. We have to face the mythical monsters in the depths of our subconscious and shed light on them.

As they are part of being human, we cannot discard them, but we can control them, master them, learn from them, and transform them into servants of the Divine. The monsters are not monsters by themselves. They are just characteristics of human nature which have become distorted. We can rectify them and make them shine in their original beauty.

This task is not for the would-be initiate. It is only for the brave who dare to face the darkness of the soul. Many will fail in their courage and return home, look back and turn into a pillar of salt.

Thus the pilgrim is not going on an easy path, as the world of pleasure is not his anymore. He has chosen the path of Arete (goddess of Virtue), leading him through many dangers and difficult paths, in solitude and starvation, but eventually he becomes immortal. He who will lose life, will gain it.

Before the rise of modern science, strong distinctions between fact and fantasy, or between religion and science, were not drawn. Thus, there was no "natural science", as we understand it today.

Though inquiry may have dealt with the properties of matter and its manipulation, these properties were presumed to have abstract and spiritual dimensions which are not observable or measurable. So alchemy was science and mysticism in one; and while its factual basis has been surpassed by modern science, its mystical and spiritual aspects remain.

The "Great Work" pursued by alchemists was the production of the Hidden Stone (the pineal gland) and using it to convert themselves to gold or silver.

It was considered that any metal which was not gold or silver, simply contained too much "impurity."

The Dragon

While common man looks to blame other people and blame fate, noble man looks for the fault within himself. - I Ching

In alchemy, the dragon corresponds closely with what Carl Gustav Jung called the Shadow. The Shadow is the name for a collection of characteristics and impulses which could be conscious, but which are denied. At the same time, we recognize and see them in other people.

Some examples of the Shadow are: egotism, laziness, intrigues, unreal fantasies, indifference, or being obsessed by money and possessions.

The Shadow is the inferior being in us, desiring what we do not allow, ourselves, because it is uncivilized, because it is incompatible with society’s rules and with the image of our ideal personality. It is all that what we are ashamed of.

The dragon always resides in caves, and thus in the earth, the underworld, and the subconscious. When the dragon leaves his cave, he devours virgins.

It is our inner emotional dragon destroying our virgin consciousness, as when he appears in the consciousness, expressing negativity like envy, jealousy, hatred, and so forth.

The dragon is never satisfied. He ever wants more treasures, more virgins. This is the seat of desire, and one must wrestle with the angel to overcome.

Is this not a true image of common man? Consciousness and alertness are enchanted by the dragon. The mythological dragon has the power to enchant, to hypnotize with his voice the brave knight who dared to challenge him. The dragon can also impose riddles in which the knight gets lost.

If we want to save the pureness of consciousness (the virgin), then the dragon has to be killed and chained in the bottomless pit of his/her own solar plexus center.

Actually this expression is not quite right. In a few tales where the dragon is conquered and made tame, he is penetrated by a lance with an iron point. Iron is always regarded a special metal, as it is found in meteorites.

As the metal associated with Mars, iron has an active, destructive force. The lance, as a phallic symbol, is the alchemical ‘secret[sacred] fire’. The penetration of ‘the body’ (here the dragon) with a lance is the penetration of physical matter with the alchemical fire.

In the same manner, the Greek god of the Sun, Apollo, penetrated the Python of Delphi, with arrows, and let the Python rot away next to the temple. Since then this place is called Pytho (putrefaction). Putrefaction is the first phase of the great Work.

The dead dragon undergoes a transmutation.

The dead dragon is not an end, but the beginning of the Great Work.

From the dead dragon, vapors and volatile substances arise, often seen in alchemical images. In other terms, the Earth is partly being transformed into Water, it ascends as vapor.

Some sources say, that in the head of the dragon is a stone, a clear reference to the rough stone, or ‘prima mater’ (first matter).

Killing the dragon also refers to a cosmic and personal happening. It is the penetration of the ‘prima mater’, as primal ocean, or primal chaos, the green life-spirit (human shadow), by the secret fire or the divine spirit.

The fiery serpent emanates fire and light into the primal waters. When the dragon (or serpent, as the cat of Ra, the Sun God, cut off the head of the serpent Apophis), is killed, the original chaos ceased and the process of cosmic evolution started.

When this happens the colour of the life-spirit changes to blue, signifying it has been lifted an octave out of the pit of the earth element and across the rainbow bridge (royal arch), into the feminine mysteries of the air element.

In Greek mythology, the hydra of Lerna was also a kind of dragon, with similar symbolism. Hercules killed the hydra in the second of his twelve works.

The hydra of Lerna lived in a swamp, the residence of primal instincts, passions, lusts and desires. This is the meaning of the Exodus story in the bible, to part the sea of reeds within one's own swampy lower nature.

Anyone who gets involved with these emotions gets into a swamp in which he drowns. Therefore, Hercules shot fiery arrows (the alchemical fire), to get her out of her hiding place. First he cut off the hydra’s heads, but they grew back; an energetic approach is not the right way.

Then, his nephew Joales comes to rescue. He starts to singe the cuts with flaming tree trunks, so new heads cannot be formed. It is this systematic, patient, reflective and profound attitude that is required.

On the mythological level, nigredo signifies the difficulties man has to overcome on his journey through the underworld. Nigredo is sometimes called ‘blacker than the blackest black’. Hercules had to accomplish twelve, almost impossible, tasks.

The pilgrim traditionally encounters shadows, monsters and demons. In the ancient mysteries, the candidates had to undergo difficult, sometimes painful and even dangerous initiation tests. In alchemy, one of the symbols of nigredo is the ‘decapitation’, the ‘raven’s head’ (caput corvi).

These symbols refer to the dying of the common man, the dying of his inner chaos and doubt, because he is unable to find the truth in himself. In one of his works, Hercules cleanses the Augias stables. It is the cleansing of all the impurities in oneself.

(Johann Daniel Mylius, Philosophia reformata, Frankfurt, 1622)
A monk in meditation in an earthen crevice, shows that alchemy was in first instance a spiritual practice. The two bird-figures are the soul and spirit

Psychologically, nigredo is a process of directing oneself to find self-knowledge. A problem is given full attention and reduced to its core. This is not done so much in an intellectual way, but rather by feeling the emotions.

By really going into to it, one causes putrefaction, the decomposition of that in which one had been stuck. The confrontation with the inner reality is often painful, and can lead to depression.

But once in the depth of the darkness, with the discovery of the seed of the problem, the seed in the ‘prima mater’, the white light is born (albedo, whiteness, the next phase).

A state of rest arises. Insight into the problem has been gained, it has been worked out emotionally, knowledge arises on how to handle it in a more positive way and build a more pure attitude. Alchemists talked about unraveling ‘the mixture’(man with all his complexities) in order to return to the germ.

"That from which a thing has been made in a natural way, by that same thing it must return to a dissolved state into its own nature. Everything has to be dissolved and reduced into that form from which it arose."

(Anton Joseph Kirchweger, 1728)

‘Matter’ has to be stripped of its superfluities in order to arrive at the center, which contains all the power of ‘the mixture’. The seed is the essence, and contains all essential powers of the body. One is to go to the center of problems, the center of emotion, center of self. Here is the power of transformation.

Saturn is the planet that rules nigredo. Saturn, alchemical symbol is used, like Mercurius, as a symbol of chaos, the prima mater, as rough stone, as the philosopher’s stone. These are all symbols for man at the beginning of the alchemical process. Saturn, with his traditional scythe and hourglass, is the god of death and putrefaction, from which new life will arise.

The scythe is another tool for penetration, as is the lance and the sword. Saturn is the philosopher’s Lead. He is the god that can cause melancholy and devilish visions. ‘Melancholia’ is another term for nigredo. As melancholy can arise when alchemically working on oneself, the alchemists advised the use of music to lift the soul.

Saturn is also a god of fertility. Thus, "our black earth is fertile earth"; an alchemical expression to express the transformation of death into new life, which is also clearly depicted in the thirteenth tarot card.

The putrefaction is a necessary phase to start a new beginning. Life itself is a cycle of death and birth, ever creating new life, giving man the opportunity to work on himself and strive to improve his condition.

The alchemists say that nigredo lasts forty days. Forty days has a symbolic value. Jesus fasted for forty days in the desert. There are forty days of fasting between Easter and Ascension Day. The Israelites wandered for forty days in the desert. Saint Antonius spent forty years in the Sahara desert, being plagued by visions of extreme erotic scenes and devils.

The symbol of the peacock’s tail was chosen because of the many colorful and brilliant ‘eyes’. It is said that originally they were the eyes of the Greek Argus, whose name means ‘he who sees everything’.

Argus was a very strong giant with a hundred eyes, of which, at all times, fifty were open and fifty were sleeping.

He was decapitated by Hermes. Hera, the mother goddess, placed the eyes on the tail of her favorite bird, the peacock.
The phase of the many colors is also symbolized by the rainbow, or the goddess of the rainbow, Iris, messenger of the gods, particularly between Zeus and the mortals.

The peacock’s tail can have two meanings in the Great Work. It can be the collection and totality of all colors in the white light. Remember, the white light refers to the second stage, albedo, or whiteness. In this sense the peacock was seen as a royal bird in ancient times, and it corresponded with the phoenix.

Being deep in nigredo, a white light appears. We have arrived at the second stage of the Great Work: albedo, or whiteness. The alchemist has discovered within himself the source from which his life comes forth. The fountain of life from which the water of life flows forth giving eternal youth.

The source is one: male and female are united. In alchemical images we see a fountain from which two streams of water flow into one basin.

Albedo is the discovery of the hermaphroditic nature of man. In the spiritual sense, each man is a hermaphrodite. We can also see this in the first embryonic phase of the fetus. There is no sex until a certain number of weeks after conception.

When man descended into the physical world, his body entered a world of duality. On the bodily level this is expressed by the sexes. But his spirit is still androgen, it contains duality in unity. Its unity is not bound to space, time nor matter.

Duality is an expression of unity in our physical world… it is temporal and will eventually cease to exist. When male and female are united again one will experience true self. The Conscious and subconscious are fully united.

Albedo happens when the Sun rises at midnight. It is a symbolic expression for the rising of the light at the depth of darkness. It is the birth of Christ in the middle of the winter. In the depth of a psychological crisis, positive change happens.

Albedo is also represented by Aurora, Roman goddess of dawn. Her brother is Helios, Sun. With a play of words, Aurora was connected with Aurea Hora, ‘the hour of gold’.

It is the supreme state of conscious. Pernety (1758): "When the Artist (Alchemist) sees the perfect whiteness, the Philosophers say one is to destroy the books, they’ve become superfluous.”

"The alchemical process is a method for self-knowledge that the soul undergoes far outside its realm of existence.” -Marry Anne Atwood

(L'Aurore, Henri de Linthaut)

Albedo, symbolized by Aurora, dawn, morning star (Venus-Aphrodite), and the Sun rising up from the Philosopher's Sea, has a special place in the Great Work. In ancient times, Lucifer was identified with the planet Venus.

Originally, Lucifer had a very positive meaning. In the Bible we find 2 Petrus 1:19 "till the day arrives and the morning star rises in your hearts".In Revelation 12:16 Christ says: "I am the shining morning star".Here Christ identifies himself with the Lucifer! We find the same in mystic literature.

In ancient times, Lucifer was a positive light being. It was just one man who changed all that, when a certain Hieronymous read a phrase from Jesaja 14:12 (Jesaja, talking to a sinful king of Babylon): "How did you fall from heaven, you morning star, you son of the dawn; how did you fall to earth, conqueror of people".

This is the divine ego, YOU, the light that slammed into that physical poverty you call a body, it's a machine driven by LIGHT.

Hieronymous used this phrase to identify Lucifer with the dragon thrown out of heaven by Michael. By the interpretation of this one man, Lucifer was tuned from a shining light being into the darkest devilish being in the world. Because the light entered into that body, that's the beginning of darkness, ignorance and confusion.

We find Lucifer, in alchemy, associated with impure metals polluted by rough sulfur. It means that the light, being Lucifer in ourselves, is polluted by what the alchemists call ‘superfluities’, ‘dross’, caused by man himself.

Mercury and Lucifer are one and the same. One talks about Mercury when he is pure; it is the white sulphur, the fire in heaven. As ‘spiritus’ he gives life. As ‘spiritus sapiens’ he teaches the alchemist the Great Work. Lucifer is the impure Mercury.

Lucifer is the morning star fallen from (the golden) heaven. He descended into the earth and is now present in all humans. Lucifer is Mercury mixed with impure elements.

He, dissolved ‘in sulfur and salt’, ‘is wrapped with strings’, ‘darkened with black mud’. Keep in mind we are always talking about our consciousness. Lucifer represents our everyday consciousness, all the (psychological and other) complexes have clouding our pure consciousness, Mercury.

The light of Mercury appears as Lucifer, a distortion caused by impurities, giving an impression of what alchemists call ‘red sulfur’. Red sulfur of Lucifer, traditional devil, is actually an illusion. It does not exist by itself, it is only an image, a distorted image of Mercury. We ourselves caused the impurities, the blackness, that veils our true light-being.

Red sulfur is the same as what is called Maya in eastern, Indian philosophies. Maya is the world of illusions, the veil preventing us from seeing and experiencing true reality, where eternal light is. By the impurities of Maya, man has become ignorant. He has forgotten his origin and thinks he is in a world which in actuality is an illusion.

As we mentioned above, Aphrodite/Venus, as the morning star, is the central image of the albedo phase of the Great Work. Aphrodite was born from the foam that arose when the genitals of Uranus (cut of by Chronos, out of hate and jealousy) fell into the sea.

The cutting off of the genitals represents repressed and tormented love. The sea, symbol of the soul, however, will bring forth the love goddess. Liberation will happen when we become conscious again of the contents of the soul.

As Aphrodite is born from the sea, she is the guide through the fearful world of the subconscious (the sea, or the underworld). The alchemist descends into these depths to find the ‘prima mater’, the ‘green lion’.

The color green refers to primal life forces. Venus also has the green color. An important characteristic of Aphrodite is that she helps us in our human shortcomings. She gives ideals and dreams to fulfill. But she also gives frightening images, to make man aware of his lower nature.

"By her beauty Venus attracts the imperfect metals and gives rise to desire, and pushes them to perfection and ripeness." (Basilius Valentinus, 1679) Liberation can only happen by becoming conscious of the lower nature and how we transmute it.

The only devil there ever was is..........

OUR OWN 'FIRST-BORN' LOWER / CARNAL / UNENLIGHTENED MIND! It is only this 'lower' mind (ego / persona) which brings forth pride, selfishness, hatred, greed, envy, lust, etc. etc. The lower animals do not possess such a mind, and thus do not suffer these evils.

(Philosophia reformata, Johann Mylius, Frankfurt, 1622)

The union of the Red King with the White Queen, symbolic of the union of male-female, albedo-rubedo. In other words, having attained albedo (having discovered the divine light in oneself), 'spirit' must be fixed (the descending eagle), resulting in rubedo. The two lions with one head signifies the unified nature attained. Out of its mouth flows the water of life.

Rubedo is the continuation of albedo. That is why they are often seen connected with each other, like the White Queen and Red King. Once the inner light has been discovered, it must be made into the only reality in consciousness. After descent into the subconscious, into darkness, underworld, we find Light, volatile Spirit. Now the volatile Spirit, Quicksilver, has to be fixed, coagulated.

This means that our consciousness, our attention, must completely penetrate the subconscious, soul, everything that lies hidden in ourselves. By doing this we fix (that is, bring it into consciousness) the volatile and make it durable. When everything in ourselves has been purified and the Light appears, we have to fix this Light and make it durable, so it remains always present.

White sulfur, attained during albedo, is also called, "the bodies composed of pure essence of the metals". The metals are the contents of the soul, and now they have been reduced to pure essence. The soul has been penetrated with pure light. The alchemist has to make it permanent.

In the eastern philosophies rubedo corresponds with the formation of the ‘diamond body’, a term fitting, for the pure and permanent Stone of the Philosophers.

When rubedo has been realized, the alchemist has accepted his spiritual inheritance. He has become what he always has been, yet never knew, he was. He has realized his divine essence while still in his physical body. It is the same as what the gnostici called pneuma, the divine spirit in each man, concealed in the deep darkness of the world, to be made conscious again. When rubedo is manifest, man is master of physical and spiritual, of self.

When the unification of all energies of the four aspects of totality has been achieved, a new state of being arises that is no longer subject to changes.

Chinese alchemy calls it the ‘diamond body’, which corresponds with the ‘corpus incorruptibile’ (untouchable body) of the European alchemy. It is also the same as the ‘corpus glorificationis’ (glorified body) of the Christian tradition.

In yogic traditions, rubedo corresponds to unification of spirit in man, called atman, with brahman. Atman is a part of brahman. Brahman is the soul of the All, it is the breath or the energy flowing through you and giving you life and consciousness. Atman is the individual self, brahman is the univerself self.

"As the body used to be slow, rough, impure, dark and destructible, because it lacked power and energy, so rebirth unifies it with the soul and spirit; vivified and volatile, light and penetrating, pure, refined and clear, overflowing with energy, indestructible and full of energy, and it is able to maintain this." (Franciscus Kieser, +/_1600).

"Ascend above any height, descend further than any depth; receive all sensory impressions of the created: water, fire, dryness and wetness. Think that you are present everywhere: in the sea, on earth and in heaven; think that you were never born and that you are still in the embryonic state: young and old, dead, and in the hereafter. Understand everything at the same time: time, place, things: quality and quantity." (Corpus hermeticum, 1460).

The Quintessence Wedding Process

The seven basic types of hybrids are humanoid bodies with the Head of the Deity depicted as:

1. Bird (Falcon, Eagle Hawk, Ibis)
2. Lion (Cat, Lion)
3. Dog (Jackal, Dog)
4. Ram (normally always with horns)
5. Bull (Cow, Bull usually with horns)
6. Serpent (snake, crocodile or lizard)
7. Scarab (beetle)


Each type is also generally associated to one of the seven ruling
planets and seven planetary metals.

Alchemists used all manner of fanciful pictures, beasts and humans in paintings and drawings to communicate. Lions, phoenixes, crowned kings and queens, trees, eagles, ravens or crows, and serpents of all description and colors are shown in these engravings and paintings, but what do they mean.

Since so much of the imagery was drawn from ancient myth and fable, let us look at a few examples of the words or descriptions of the alchemist, for the various elements and processes in the work. What follows is a list of some of the names or terms found in alchemy, and along with the name, the meaning is given:

Aeris: Element of Air

Aqua: Element of Water

Aquila Philosophum: “Eagle of the Philosophers”. This is the Mercury of metals, not the actual mercury or quicksilver.

Basilisk: Symbol of the personal subconsciousness, in its dual nature of crude and crowned, conflicting elemental, nature.

Bat: Androgyny. Dual-natured

Bee: Soul, purity, or rebirth into unity hive consciousness.

Bennu or Phoenix: Symbol of the Philosopher’s Stone
Black Dragon: Death, purification in the astral gloom, decay.

Chaos: The Void. The fourfold division of the First Matter (Prima Mater).

Cloud: Gas or vapor.

Dog: Philosophical Mercury.

Double-Headed Eagle: Masculine and Feminine Mercury[Spirit].

Eagle: Sublimation. Mercury in its most exalted state. Can also be an emblem of knowledge, inspiration, and a sign of the completed Magnum Opus.

Egg: The sealed hermetic vessel wherein the work is completed. Symbol of Creation.

Frog: The First Matter (Prima Mater). The origin of physical matter.

Gold: The goal of the Great Work. Perfection and harmony. Complete balance of the masculine and feminine principals.

Great King: The completion of the Magnum Opus. Attainment.

Green Lion: The stem and root of the radical essence of the metals. Raw and unpurified energy of nature of the personal soul. Symbol of the living life-force sought in the First Matter. The lost divine sparks of the Shekhinah. The beginning of the work.

Lily: The Shekhinah, The female principal.

Lion: Subtle heat and effect of the Fire element upon the soul, sulfurous action.

Luna: The planetary name of Silver. Can also refer to a mixture of antimony and iron. Sometimes the feminine principal.

Orb: The World, Divine Unity, Spirit.

Raven or Crow: Initiation through blackness.

Red Lion: Sulfur (solar energy) combined with Mercury (will). The force of nature under control. It is the same as the Green Lion, but mixed with gold.

The above is only a partial list of some terms and in many cases the colorful names applied. So from the list above, a picture of a Black Frog would refer to decayed or putrefied First Matter.

If there was a symbol or sigil of the planet Jupiter and the alchemical symbol for Elemental Fire this may indicate that the operation to begin the putrification of the First Matter (Prima Mater) would start on the day and hour of Jupiter (Thursday at sunrise), and that the elemental nature sought is one relating to Elemental Fire. This is just one interpretation of an operation. It is because of these multiple meanings of the symbols used in alchemy that there is such difficulty in understanding them.

One of the most used symbols in alchemical art was the rose. The rose is a symbol of completion, attainment, and perfection. It can also be an emblem of regeneration. Juan Eduardo Cirlot gives the rose the following meanings:

The single rose is in essence a symbol of completion, of consummate achievement and perfection. Hence, accruing to it are all those ideas associated with these qualities: the mystic Centre, the Heart, the garden of Eros, the paradise of Dante, the beloved, the emblem of Venus and so forth.

More precise symbolic meanings are derived from the colour and number of its petals. The relationship of the white rose to the red is in accordance with the relationship between the two colours as defined in alchemy. The blue rose is symbolic of the impossible.

The golden rose is a symbol of absolute achievement. When the rose is round in shape, it corresponds in significance to the mandala. The seven-petalled rose alludes to the septenary pattern (that is, the seven Directions of Space, the seven days of the week, the seven planets, the seven degrees of perfection). It is in this sense that it appears in emblem DCCXXIII, of the Ars Symbolica, of Bosch, and in the Summum Bonum of Robert Fludd. The eight-petalled rose symbolizes regeneration.

The Rose of 22 Petals

The Horn and crescent Moon Symbol on top of the symbol Mercury, is like a radar dish connecting the individual with cosmic consciousness. It is the same meaning as the Buddhist Lotus flower and Hermetic Rose flower.

The rosy-cross diagram was created by the members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, to provide (among some of the reasons) a simpler and more beautiful method of constructing their sigils.

The three inner petals contain the three “mother letters” of the active elements: Air, Fire, and Water.
The seven middle petals contain the letters of the seven planets.
The 12 outer petals contain the letters of the Zodiac

The rose is frequently used for drawing sigils in the air with a magickal weapon, during ritual, but it may be used for the construction of any generalized sigil.

Talmud - Mas. Sanhedrin 92a - R. Shesheth said: Whoever teaches the Torah in this world will be privileged to teach it in the next, as it is written, And he that watereth shall water again too

For this is the way of wisdom to acquire ideas one after another until, in the end, there emerges one complete concept for which all of the prefaces were necessary.

From Da'ath Tevunoth (The Knowing Heart)
Rabbi Moshe Chayim Luzzatto

The waters of life

Rejecting the lower, egoic worldview for the higher, transcendent worldview amounts to having the faith that enables and permits you to walk on water without sinking. This is a Cruciform worldmodel one now holds; one has been shaped by the Holy Spirit into the form and likeness of the deity (Christ, Jesus, godman, god, God, immortal).

One has had the child self burned away in the flames of purgatory, and is now sinless enough to enter Heaven and walk in righteousness in the kingdom of God, performing miracles like walking on water, being a "believer in Christ" and having strong "faith in Jesus".

These ideas have direct equivalents in other religions. I have a shrine-picture of Kwan Yin holding a krater (small ceremonial cup) of the drink of the gods, riding a dragon on the raging sea.

The raging sea is the emotional nature that wells up in us all from time to time, when we allow the moon god to come into our wholly temple.

The storms are within.

The stroms arise because of Tubalcain

Who is Tubal and Tubalcain in the bible?

He is none other than the stubborn brutish lower left carnal mind.


tu'-bal (tubhal, tubhal; Septuagint Thobel, Codex Alexandrinus in Ezek 39:1, Thober): As the text stands, Tubal and Meshech are always coupled, except in Isa 66:19 (Massoretic Text) and Ps 120:5. In the former passage Tubal is yoked with Javan; in the latter Meshech occurs in 120:5 and Kedar in 120:6.

In Gen 10:2 parallel, they are sons of Japheth. In Ezekiel (27:13) the two are mentioned as exporters of slaves and copper, as a warlike people of antiquity (32:26), in the army of Gog (38:2 ff; 39:1).

It's the slave mind on the alchemist metal Copper

You are, right always, living at the time of revelation, Apocalypse, and the fulfillment of prophecy. Let there be no doubt. You stand at the edge of the Abyss. What are those shadows that crowd around you? They are the unintegrated aspects of your own psyche, projected into material form.

The word "Apocalypse" means "uncovering" – and in these last clock ticks of this world age, all must be revealed, uncovered, so that all can be known.

You must prepare the vehicle for your higher self. Use it preciously.

"Reality," as you currently experience it, is something like a waking dream. It is a projection, or let us say an interface, disguising deeper and more intensified levels of being and knowing. For those who are ready and willing, the doors to those other levels stand open.

Those who have expended their lives in the pursuit of egocentric and material gains – without courage or originality, without fighting for human freedom or the preservation of the planetary environment – will also receive the rewards that they deserve.

The materiality of your universe is a solid-state illusion. What is this universe? It is a poem that writes itself. It is a song that sings itself into being. This universe has no origin and no end.

I resonate, at the same time, with the essence of Islam. Islam means submission, surrender, to the will of God – a more polite way of saying this is "Go with the flow." But either formulation is correct. Whatever you do, in fact, resist as you think you might, you are always submitting to God’s will. So why not give the process your joyful assent?

I am in complete harmony, as well, with the Tibetan tradition of Dzogchen. Ultimately, there are no entities – there is neither being, nor nonbeing. From the perspective of nondual awareness, samsara is nirvana. The Apocalypse, the Kali Yuga, the Golden Age – these are all states of mind.

Hell is a state of mind. When you eliminate fear and attachment, when you self-liberate, you attain the Golden Age.

This universe spontaneously self-organizes into higher levels of consciousness and wisdom. Underlying all are great cosmic entities or vibrational fields, alternately at play or at rest.

Not satisfied with mere enlightenment, the god-form Quetzalcoatl still seeks to puzzle out the workings of these deeper forces – hence the reason for his return to our realm. He and his kind have been granted this world for their continued exploration – made with loving reverence – of the many layers of galactic intelligence, cosmic illusion, daemonic beauty, and telluric transformation. All are invited to participate with them.

The current transition is, simultaneously, a return to origin. The original matrix of this new world reality is the ecstatic limitlessness of your own being. This world – any world – is the ground for a certain level of being. What manifests outward from the ground of being is freedom in time, and freedom from time.

My "doctrine" is not transcendent, but immanent. It is not "somewhere out there." It is here and now. The task of human existence is to transform the Earth, to reconcile spirit and matter in this realm. We go deeper into the physical to reach the infinite. As there are no conceivable limits to this task, God, in His greatness, has granted us a project that is without limit and without end.

Thinking is a part of reality. Thought generates new potentials and possibilities of manifestation. Thought changes the nature of reality. Thought changes the nature of time. As a philosopher, I naturally deify the goddess principle. I venerate Sophia, deity of wisdom, who clothes God’s thoughts in material form, and worship Shakti, the electric current of sexual energy that powers the universe.

Those who prefer to reject all of this out of hand are welcome to do so. In the Qabalah, the virtue one seeks to establish on the "Earth Plane" is discrimination. It is up to the individual to find his way through the ideas presented here – of course he is entirely free to ignore them altogether.

But be forewarned: The End of Time approaches. The return of Quetzalcoatl, Buddha, Jesus, kali, Zeus and all saviours foreshadows the imminent closing of the cycle and the completion of the Great Work.

Now is the time to be in your meditations (great Work), this is the hour, to become the Alchamest.


All Ideas that are Created in our Solar System originate in the Sun, which is the Center of the morphogenic field of Ideation for our Solar System. This is why the evolvement of Man from the Idea of Mankind in the Sun out through the Seven Spheres of Creation and into the world of form, and then His return back through the Spheres into the Sun, is called Solar Evolution.

Understanding the Idea of Creation and the Identity of God, discussed in the previous chapter, sets the stage for the "Coming of Man" through Solar Evolution. In the evolution of Nature, the growth rings are produced and the cycles continued according to the seasons of the species.

With Mankind, the growth rings are indicated by years and the embodiment is completed when the null point has been reached. This is why everything in Nature and everyone in Mankind seem to "live" through the allotted life-span and then "die." But, in-stead of "living" and "dying," they are repeating the expression and voidance phases of the cycle of Creation.

"God is the light of the heavens and the earth; the likeness of His Light is as a niche wherein is a lamp (the lamp in a glass, the glass as it were a glittering star) kindled from a Blessed Tree, an olive that is neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil well nigh would shine, even if no fire touched it.

Light upon Light." Quran 24:35, "The Verse of Light"

Some dreams of today still have this "planting/eating" and "house building" symbolism. So, it seems, part of the message about the change is that people will learn to go by their own authority, rather than follow others. I do think this process started many years ago and will continue. The Word Wide Web will probably make it go faster.

A Templar-related story illustrates the point. It is said that you are born a camel. You get down on your knees, and a load is placed upon you (conditioned beliefs of childhood).

When you grow up and leave home, you become a lion who goes into the desert. Eventually, the lion runs into a dragon who has "Thou Shalt" written on each of his scales (confronting the conditioned beliefs). The lion slays the dragon and transforms into a baby. At that point, you have overcome the conditioned beliefs and are operating from your own heart's center.

It is also said, "The heavier the load, the stronger the lion." In one of the sayings in the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas, Jesus says (something like): "Lucky is he who eats the lion, for the lion becomes human. But, cursed is he who the lion eats, for the lion still becomes human." The "Pollen Path" articles tell the story of how dreams and coincidences led me to the theory that humanity has been on a path through the chakras, and that the 3 1/2 midpoint is the key.

The harlot is related to the lower three chakras, especially the third.

She is seated upon many waters, which are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues (Rev. 17:15). This may represent an energy that pervades everything in the difficult time cycle. The harlot is very similar in meaning to Kali.

See: Tamasisk - Anger - Fury The beast and harlot are related to ten horns (see Rev. 17:16). The third chakra is symbolized by a lotus flower with ten petals. See: Humanity On The Pollen Path

The leap to the fourth - Heart chakra seems to be suggested by the twelve stars on the crown of The Woman With Child of Rev. 12:1, and by The New Jerusalem (Rev. 21), which has twelve gates, angels, gemstones, and pearls.

The Heart chakra is symbolized by a lotus flower with 12 petals. Dreams of being in or under the water, or underground, seem to suggest the unconscious, the collective unconscious, the dream realm, or the spirit realm. In Jung's system water is related to emotions.

The Hopi creation myth of Spider Grandmother seems to have the same meaning, expressed a bit differently. The depiction on my Pollen Path page shows that there are three chambers underground, with a tunnel up to the surface and daylight. The myth tells how the creator put insects into the first chamber and told them to find out the meaning of life.

They are helped by Spider Grandmother to the next level, where they become animals. She helps again in the next cycle, and the animals become humans in the third chamber. Finally, she comes again, along with birds, and the people climb up through the tunnel to the surface. She then teaches us how "to weave."

In the Nordic myth of the Yggdrasil World Tree, the Norns of Fate weave at one of the underground roots. Notice that the final climb in the Hopi myth was at the 3 1/2 point.

In terms of the chakra levels of consciousness, the first three were underground, again suggesting the unconscious. Other material, including Biblical verses, indicate that we are co-creators of the reality. Humanity en masse seems to be the demiurge co-creator, symbolized by the swastika.

This is related to the four smiths (or carpenters) who cast down the four horns in Zechariah 1:18-21 - And I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, four horns! And I said to the angel who talked with me, "What are these?" And he answered me, "These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem."

Then the Lord showed me four smiths. And I said, "What are these coming to do?" He answered, "These are the horns which scattered Judah, so that no man raised his head; and these have come to terrify them, to cast down the horns of the nations who lifted up their horns against the land of Judah to scatter it."

The Babylonian demiurge hero, Marduke, chased down the Storm Bird Zu (anger-fury), who had stolen the tablets with the fates of men. He caught the bird and retrieved the tablets. Putting this all together now - it seems that in the time cycle, mankind is co-creating from the unconscious, symbolized by the water or underground. Many dreams and myths show a descent into the underground and a return.

Our fates have been stolen, so-to-speak. Returning to the surface or recovering the tablets with the fates of men, indicate that the kings of the earth will become conscious co-creators.

This will happen when we pass the 3 1/2 point and reach the Heart chakra. The kings will recover their crowns, royal power, and kingdoms. They will learn how "to weave" their own "fate."

The inspired film, "The Lion King," presented these ideas with an Egyptian theme. The Father Lion is Osiris, who is killed by his brother Scar/Typhon Set. The young Lion is Horus, who sees his Father in the stars, i.e., Orion. The Shaman-Baboon is Thoth.

Another related dream-coincidence idea is that the seven days of creation are not yet completed . . . we are not "Man" yet. See: The Pleiades And The Seventh Ray On The Seventh Day And, therefore we have not yet received free will.


Genesis49: 8 - 10 - Judah, your brothers will praise you, your hand will be on the neck of your enemies; your father's sons will bow down to you. 9: You are a lion's cub, 1O Judah; you return from the prey, my son.

Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness - who dares to rouse him? 10: The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until he come to whom it belongs, and the obedience of the nations is his.

Job 4:10 The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, and the teeth of the young lions, are broken. 4:11 The old lion perisheth for lack of prey, and the stout lion's whelps are scattered abroad. 4:12 Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof. 4:13 In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men,

Daniel 7:1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, [and] told the sum of the matters. 7:2 Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.

7:3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. 7:4 The four was like a lion and had eagle's wings; I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it. 7:5

And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and [it had] three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.

7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it [was] diverse from all the beasts that [were] before it; and it had ten horns.

Proverbs 22:13 The sluggard says, "There is a lion outside!" or, "I will be murdered in the streets!"

Proverbs 26:13 The sluggard says, "There is a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets!"

Proverbs 28:15 Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked man ruling over a helpless people.

Joel 1:3 - 10 - "Tell your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation. (4) That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpillar eaten.

(5) Awake ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine because of the 'new wine' for it is cut off from your mouth. (6) For a nation is come up upon my land, strong and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. (7) He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.

Ezekiel 41:19 So that the face of a man [was] toward the palm tree on the one side, and the face of a young lion toward the palm tree on the other side: [it was] made through all the house round about.

Isaiah 65: 25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

Thomas 5:7 - Jesus said: "Lucky is the lion that the human will eat, so that the lion becomes human 8: - And foul is the human that the lion will eat, and the lion still will become human
Proverbs 28:15 Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked man ruling over a helpless people.

Where does God dwell? God dwells in Zion. God dwells in the heavens.


When the light (GOD) particle is divided, electricity is formed. Electricity is the force that propels the one Universal Energy of Desire. The two pairs of opposite conditions are always equal in electrical potential and are always unbalanced in equilibrium.

If they were balanced, there would be no Motion. This is what causes Motion in matter - the perpetual(stadige) exchange of electrical potential at the null point - expression and voidance, action and reaction

Matter is divided Light in Motion. All bodies are divided Light in Motion. The energy of Desire drives the unbalanced opposite conditions to seek balance and rest - the expression phase of the cycle seeks balance at the null zone in the fulcrum point - the voidance (tomme)half of the cycle finds rest in the zero Motion of the inert gases that bound all light waves.

When the Idea of Mankind is projected from the Stillness of Ideation into the Motion of light waves, each individual is given a White Fire Body having the form of a perfect circle of Light.(som Martinus kaller evighetslegemet?). Thought always expresses in the light waves as circles.

With the division of the White Fire Form into two opposite conditions, each half of this Light Body manifested as an individualized "I AM Presence" in the Heart of the Great Central Sun.

The Central Sun is the Universal Center for our Galaxy. Those individuals who chose to divide the original White Fire Body, composed of the Whole Circle, are twin rays. One part of the compliment manifests the masculine nature of Deity', -guddommem- while the other, the Feminine aspect.

Because the Idea of Mankind is projected into the light wave in the image of God, the individual is endowed (skjenket) with all of the Personality' aspects of Creation. He is a simulation of the Creator in Motion.

His mind is an extension of Universal Mind in action. Universal Mind KNOWS in Motion only what Mankind experiences. This is the purpose of individualization - to experience in Motion what God images in Stillness.

After the choice has been made to remain an individual and to continue through the seven spheres of Cosmic development, each entity is given an electronic keynote and a name. The keynote is a vernier symbol or seal embedded in the Permanent Atom of each individual and is registered in the Akashic Records of the Great Clock as the Cosmic Identity of that Personality'.

This is how the soul establishes, records and maintains each individual's Causal Body, characteristics and master cedes as he ventures (våger) through the seven spheres of Creation, and tetrahedron. Also, if he chooses to embody on the physical plane, the Soul uses the individual's keynote to direct the design and structure of the physical body and to record the action and reaction of his Creative cycles.

Theory of creation of the universe: A 9th century Hindu scripture, The Mahapurana by Jinasena claims that the world is uncreated, as time itself is, without beginning and end.

May there be peace in the sky, may there be peace in mid region, may there be peace on earth, may there be peace in the waters, may the medicinal plants be peaceful, may the forest be peaceful, may there be peace in gods, may Brahma be peaceful, may all the creation be peaceful, may there be peace and peace only, may such peace come to us.

But my name is chord, play a chord, strike a chord, all of life is dynamic never still, except for Center, the center is where you are at anyone time, you must be moving, but at the ame time be still. Wisdom of the gods.

Puff the Magic Dragon

A new interpretation by Swami Dharmananda and the authors thought they were writing about loss of the innocence of childhood. Childhood is not completely innocent. True innocence is the death of tyranny – tyranny of the mind and ego.

Puff, the magic dragon, lived by the sea

And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honalee.

Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff

And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff, oh

Puff is the primordial life energy, Shakti, manifesting through an individual cosmos called a human being. It is therefore called the Mother Kundalini Shakti. Jesus said except ye become as little children ye shall in no wise enter the kingdom of heaven.

Honalee is this kingdom of heaven of which he spoke. The sea is the ocean of consciousness from which both the mud of the material world and the delights of Honalee have been churned. Autumn mists are the....

Let's start with spring. In the spring or beginning of the expansion of consciousness dense forests of desires, passions, fears, and attachments obscure one's path.

Summer is hot with the sun of pride: pride in learning, pride in accomplishments, pride in respectability and wealth. Come autumn only the mists of beauty, joy, and subtle ideas separate the dragon from the ocean of consciousness.

The dragon lives in the constellation of human consciousness. Were she to dive into the sea itself the rascal would take the individual soul with her, drowning individual consciousness in the sea of mirth.

Little Jackie Paper is the individual human consciousness that Puff makes for a playmate. The next line has two points. The most important is that it makes no difference what Little Jackie Paper gives to Puff; what matters is the simple devotion with which he gives it.

It is done in playfulness. The fun is not ruined by hoary thoughts of being of service or other dark clouds of ego. In the other meaning the string is the path Puff follows from his cave up to the autumn mists. In tantra yoga it is called the sushumna. Along the path are seals or knots that prevent Puff from going up to the autumn mists to play by the infinite sea of mirth.

In those who have not become as little children these seals prevent Puff from using the path so he has to stay in his cave in the earth. As long as Puff stays in his cave in the earth Little Jackie Paper remains in material consciousness. When Little Jackie Paper surrenders the seals to Puff, she melts them with her breath of fire and passes on toward the sea.

When she does Little Jackie Paper rides on her tail and is raised with her to higher states of consciousness, heaven, or Honalee. ( Honalee is a contraction or abbreviated form of Pihanakalani. PiHANAkaLanI.

Pihanakalani is Hawaiian for "where heaven meets earth." Honalee is thus the place where heaven can be known while yet on earth.) The other fancy stuff is the different states of consciousness that Jackie Paper surrenders to Puff. In tantra yoga these are identified with different wheels or chakras along the string-like sushumna pathway.

Puff, the magic dragon, lived by the sea

And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honalee.

Puff, the magic dragon, lived by the sea

And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honalee.

Together they would travel on boat with billowed sail

Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff's gigantic tail

Noble kings and princes would bow whenever they came

Pirate ships would lower their flags when Puff roared out his name, oh

Noble kings, princes, and pirates were some of the fancy stuff given to Puff. The bowing of kings and princes signifies his surrendering the thirst for power.

On the path to Honalee the desire for power is associated with a wheel, a center of consciousness, or solar system far from the autumn mists by the sea.

If Jackie Paper did not surrender the desire for power he would have to stay in that chakra where the ego is course enough to enjoy the idea of power. In the state of mirth or Honalee one couldn't care less about power.

In the mirth of Honalee it is not possible to enjoy power. Who will have power over whom? How can mirth have power over mirth? All is the mirth of divine play. Even the idea of power cannot enter Honalee.

Pirate ships ply many chakras or solar systems along the pathway of Puff, the Primordial Dragon Kundalini. In some they pirate ships of material possessions.

In others they seek out ships laden with pleasure. They may seek out the wealth of worldly learning. Whatever realm of the Dance of Nature they enter they seek out Her wares to call their own. Puff's name of course is the mighty, oceanic roar of OM, which alone has the power to lower the pirate flag of ego.


A dragon lives forever, but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant's rings make way for other toys.
One gray night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.

The dragon of primordial energy, which alone has the power to fill the sails of consciousness that blow us on to the eternal sea, lives forever. But the humility and receptivity to surrender the seals of wax and ride his tail aloft is not always present. Often it is the toys brought by the pirate ship if ego that catch the fancy of Little Jackie Paper.

His head was bent in sorrow; green scales fell like rain
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane.
Without his lifelong friend, Puff could not be brave
So, Puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave, oh

Then Puff, rejected, must return to his cave in the earth chakra. The green scales of elevated tates of consciousness fall like rain as he descends to his cave beneath the earth. The cherry lane of sushumna remains dark. Puff will not venture from his cave without his humble playmate, Little Jackie Paper.

According to an 8th century BCE legend, Prometheus tricked Zeus by stuffing beef into the belly of an Ox and wrapping the bull horns in “glistening fat” to trick him into taking the inedible horns from an offering.

This pissed Zeus off and he hid fire from humans, but Prometheus stole it back and returned it to the humans.

In a later revision (700 BCE), Zeus stole “the means of life” from man and said, “you would easily do work enough in a day to supply you for a full year even without working; soon would you put away your rudder over the smoke, and the fields worked by ox and sturdy mule would run to waste.”

He also created Pandora (the first mortal woman) to punish man. She carried a jar with her which contained “evils, harsh pain and troublesome diseases which give men death”.

So, Zeus, angry with man disobeying him by the prodding of the trickster, punished man by causing man to toil in dry fields, and sent him disease and death.

Zeus also gave the trickster eternal punishment.

This sounds awfully familiar doesn't it?

CHI, the life force, another name.

Anima (Latin) Air, wind, breath; secondarily life, soul, spirit, mind. A distinction, not generally observed, has been made between anima and animus, where animus is very close to the mentality or manas of theosophical terminology and anima is equivalent to the theosophic usage of prana.

Because equivalent to prana, it exists on seven planes, from the atman to the physical; and consequently there is an anima for every class of celestial being, anima not being limited only to human beings, beasts, and other beings having bodies of material substance.

From anima came "animal," a being with a living personal soul. The vegetable and mineral kingdoms do not have it; but the earth has, and the earth was called an animal in consequence.

There was in classical times a distinction between three souls of the defunct: anima (pure spirit) went to the heaven world, while manes went to the nether regions, and umbra hovered on earth (IU 1:37).

Anima is spoken of as pure spirit because the essence of prana is indeed spirit, as it is derivative directly form the atma-buddhic monad, although colored on the lower planes by its intimate connection with the personal ego or manes.

Dragons and Serpents

Basic meaning : Unconscious fears that are repressed and need to be acknowledged
Symbolism in Dreams

The Jung/Freud Approach


(1) Is the dragon guarding a treasure, or a cave which might contain treasure? If so, the cave represents your unconscious, the treasure represents yourself, the dragon that stands between you and your true self represents the fearsomeness of the unconscious, for one who is still afraid of what may be lurking there. This is a repression of the unconscious contents

(2) For Jung, the first stage of the individuation process is the conscious ego's heroic struggle {the hero/heroine journey of mythology} to lift itself out of the original all-encompassing unconsciousness and to establish control of unconscious forces. This finds symbolic representation in the legendary dragon-slayer, St George (St George = the ego; the dragon = the unconscious).

(3) The dragon may represent the devouring aspect of (your relationship with) your mother. 'Slaying the dragon' may therefore mean putting an end to whatever in your attachment to your mother is detrimental to the process of finding your own psychic individuality.

Once the individual has achieved liberation from the 'dragon', the feminine side of the man's psyche and the masculine side of the woman's psyche will no longer appear in threatening form, but as an indispensable companion and guide in further stages of self-development.

(4) A dragon may represent the generative power of (Mother) Nature; the unconscious, felt as womb pregnant with new possibilities of life.

(5) A winged dragon may symbolize some kind of transcendence, some passing from 'lower' to 'higher' level of personal maturity.

(6) A dragon may be a symbol for your sexuality, particularly if it - your sexuality - frightens you. Is your fear irrational; or does sexuality threaten to rule your life? In either case, don't kill the 'dragon'; if necessary tame it.

(In China, 'chi' is good, life-giving energy and the channels it runs along are called 'dragon-lines', which are said to follow underground water and underground magnetic fields).

From Oxygen Dream Dictionary


Animal instincts to be conquered, hence the battles of Saint George and Saint Michael with "the dragon." The dragon fight is related to the archetypal themes of search/quest, the hero/heroine, and, in more modern terms, separating ourselves from the collective values of our parents/ancestors.

The dragon can symbolize a guardian or guarding quality; something that needs to be guarded/protected in your life/psyche. As a devouring creature, it may represent negative aspects of the mother archetype.

It shares much of the same symbolism as the snake, and both can symbolize the developing Self, In many cultures/legends, the dragon symbolizes wisdom and strength. Because of its hidden knowledge, the dragon often possesses supernatural/magical powers {myth}.

Pagan/Wiccan Interpretation of Dragon {Positive} A symbol of wisdom due to long lives and potent magick Dragon charms can bring power Visions or dreams of dragons can symbolize a person in power Dreaming of flying on the back of a dragon symbolizes the beginning of a new spiritual insight

Joseph's Dragon Dream in Revelations {Negative}

In Revelation 12, the major opponent of the church is also exposed. He is the terrifying red dragon with seven heads, ten horns and seven crowns on his head. Revelation clearly identifies the dragon or monster. He is "that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray" (12:9, with 20:2).

Satan's earthly proxy — the beast from the sea — also has seven heads and ten horns, and he is scarlet in color as well (13:1; 17:3). Satan's character is mirrored in his earthly representatives. The dragon personifies evil. Since ancient mythology had many references to dragons, John's audience would have understood that the dragon of Revelation 13 represented a cosmic enemy.

Exactly what the dragon's seven heads represent is not immediately clear. However, given John's use of seven as a numerical symbol of completeness, perhaps this suggests the universal nature of Satan's power and that he completely embodies within himself all evil.

The dragon also has seven diadems or royal crowns on his heads. They could represent Satan's spurious claim against Christ. As the Lord of Lords, it is to Jesus that all crowns of authority belong. He is the one who will be crowned with many diadems (19:12, 16).

We are told the dragon had "swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to earth" (12:4). This fraction is used several times in Revelation. Perhaps we should interpret it as meaning a significant minority.

Dragon Traditions of Myth in East & West

From Dragonorama

Dragons have a deeply rooted connotation in Western culture associating them with evil, whereas in Eastern stories they can also be kind and are considered very wise

The Western Dragon Tradition

Western dragons aren't necessarily evil - but they often are. At the very least they tend to be solitary and bad-tempered.

The typical Western dragon - or Wyrm - is a large, scaly creature resembling a dinosaur or a large lizard. It usually has wings and can fly, often it will breathe fire.

Western dragons tend to live in caves in mountains or hidden away in the forests. They often guard a stash of gold. Western dragons are often used to symbolise greed.

Note: Caves symbolize the unconscious. In dreams a dragon in a cave would often symbolize unconscious fears, or a need to confront {and slay} unconscious fears.

Dragons vary as much as people do. Although many Western dragons are brutal, ignorant creatures who kill and eat humans others are ancient, wise creatures more akin to those found in the East.

The Oriental Dragon Tradition

Whereas Western dragons are usually found in mountains or forests, Oriental dragons are more likely to be found in the sea. Many oriental dragons resemble water snakes.

Oriental dragons rarely breath fire, instead if a mortal annoys one then it is likely to result in great floods.

Note: When confronting the unconscious there is often a reluctance by the conscious mind to accept what is there. Often the conscious ego will throw annoying barriers so one will continue to repress or ignore unconscious contents.

The traditional Western dragon is often seen as a brutish creature to be feared. Oriental dragons tended to be wise and benevolent - as long as they were given the respect they deserved. Their chief flaw was their vanity and if insulted could cause dreadful natural disasters.

Oriental dragons fly to and from heaven in clouds but do not usually have wings. Some sources say that they gain wings after living for a thousand years.

Famous Dragons, Serpents  Wryms


The dragon Abraxas originated in Persian mythology however the name has been taken up elsewhere. As such descriptions of Abraxas vary considerably.

Abraxas is usually described as having either a man or a serpent's body with the head of a cockerel (sometimes two such heads). He has two dragon's feet and carries a whip in his human hands.

The name and image of Abraxas were of other esoteric teachings. Some identified Abraxas with a supreme deity.

There is much numerological interest in the name Abraxas. The number of letters - seven - is considered important by some. There is also interest in the fact that the letters of the name can be made to sum to 365 in some systems. Abraxas is thus considered the Lord of the 365 Virtues, one of which represents each day of the year.

Some people have sugested that the name "Abraxas" could itself be derived from "Abracadaba".

The name is considered to have great power and is inscribed on stone talismans called Abraxas Stones.

The individual path is a psychological journey

The triplicity of Neo-Cortex, Mid-Brain and the Cerebellum reflects the triplicity of many aspects of philosophy and religion; also the trinity of EGO, SuperEGo, and ID Freud's psychology.

Meshec, Shedrach and Abednego, the Physical, the Intellectual and the emotional.

Salvation is to be regarded as that spiritual state associated with Enlightenment, or degrees leading up to it, as in the case of man. The key for those wishing to hasten this process of upliftment and freedom is very simple.

It is difficult although simple, and yet attempts should be made as there is nothing accomplished without its beginning. When an individual achieves that which is Enlightenment, there is some perception of Truth and inner knowledge of The Oneness from which All derives.

This becomes a small step to Universal freedom. Another light has been lit, illuminating that which is The Group Soul compounding the whole of humanity. Asked how this individual transmutation can be hastened, my feeling of ignorance and inadequacy forbids any specific answer.

The age-old exhortation of The Masters of Yoga and past Avatars, who have tried to educate us in this matter from remotest antiquity, has to suffice: “Know Thy Self.”

The methods are various, and are basically founded in the metaphysics of Yoga as means for developing the ability to meditate, thereby subjugating that which is our personality and basic self-interest to become united with the higher level of consciousness which lies in potential within us all.

From this, you will perceive the idea of self-sacrifice and concern for others in unselfish service. This is Karma Yoga, the most powerful Yoga in these days. If you read The Twelve Blessings, it becomes apparent that Salvation is a theme central to it, and it is a tribute to those who sacrifice their Salvation on our behalf.

Worship is Actually Meditation

There isn't any EGO tistical all powerful God that needs petty humans groveling at it's feet, you will in the way.

Great store is held in the minds of religious teachers of the importance of worship. Whether it is the worship of a Hindu Deity or the One God, it is of doubtful value in terms of getting enlightenment. In my opinion, IT does not want your worship. What IT can be perceived as wanting, if you like, is some effort to show Love in action towards fellow men and to Nature, that act begins in meditation, one must first remove the log in his own eye, before he can remove the log in anothers.

The recognition of The Supreme Deity is also better achieved by Gratitude for Life and experience. There is only one prayer you need and it is, “Thy Will Be Done,” and feel it when you say it. There is a universal and never-ending Blessing in the Love which is pouring through all manifestation.

Our problem is not having accepted fully this tremendous power. We have closed off our minds by the strictures of the written word, and by being concerned with accumulating symbols of wealth.

When you send thoughts of thankfulness and love to Logos of the Sun, and repeat this every time you awake to another day, you are worshipping in the most effective way.

When there is effort to realise your essential Oneness with IT, you are exciting the activity of your Soul, and herein lies the virtue and merit of Yogic practice. Singing hymns, and mouthing prayers in Church every Sunday, may make you feel good in church and forms a worthy social exercise, but do not register with the God's above and below..

God, or the concept of a”god”, is an invention because Mankind suffers (therefore spirituality) and because unexplained phenomena often require an immediate explanation. Your argument suffers from the logical fallacy of “post hoc, ergo propter hoc”, or “after this, therefore because of this”; or, stated in another way, “naturlistic (”secular”) materialism can’t explain everything, therefore there must be a god”. Therefore that god must be an Islamic god too, because the Qur’an might have made reference to such a thing.

You must stop believing in the power of a self-fulfilling prophecy, i.e., if I believe something to be true hard enough,and if I can find even a scrap of anecdotal “evidence” from the sriptures (or wherever), it will come true.

We create gods (religion) because we die.
we create philosophy because we’re born.
We create science because we live.
