To the Serpent

So much celebrated, so much cursed

Serpent of Garden of Eden

Life that goes Forth

With the Knowledge of Good and Evil

Life that multiplies and destroys everything It touches

Life that is: Consciousness

 

That goes forth to-wards Divine

Through the Tree of Life and its Sefirots

Through the Yi Jing transformations

Through Shiva and Shakti’s dance on the floor of Maya

To the trinity of Father / Son / Holy Spirit

To Sat / Chit / Ananda

To Kether / Binah / Chokhmah

To the ascent above the Abyss

 

The Serpent that flows through

Sushuma-to-Sahasrara

Kundalini, Qi, Life Force

I follow Your Wisdom

What is Alchemy?

Secret art of the Land of Khem

Khem is an ancient name for the land of Egypt, and  is one of the two oldest sciences known to the world. The other one is Astrology.

According to an old Rabbi legend, an angel gave Adam the mysteries and secrets ofKabbalah and of Alchemy, promising that when the human race understand these inspired arts, the curse of the forbidden fruit would be removed and man will again enter into the Garden of Eden.

The earthly body of alchemy symbols is chemistry.

The Phoenicians, and Babylonians were familiar with alchemy.  It was the most prized of the secrets of the Atlantean priest-craft, it was practiced  in China, Greece and Rome; and it was the master science of the Egypt.   The most powerful of the alchemical organizations were the Rosicrucians, the Illuminati, and certain Arabian and Syrian sects.


What is Alchemy and Nature

Alchemy is based upon the natural phenomenon of growth.  According to Alchemists through the self-development the consciousness of man can be transformed from base animal desires (represented by the metals) into a pure, golden, and enlightened consciousness; ignorance can, through proper endeavor and training, be transmuted into wisdom; metals can be transformed into gold.


An Alchemist masters the art of perfecting what Nature left imperfect.


Gold is formed in the centre of the earth, when passing through warm and pure places. Gold's atomic number is 79.  It is a chemical element with the symbol AU (or perhaps AU(M)?) the Latin ‘aurum’, meaning ‘shining dawn’ because of its colour.  Gold does not oxidize in air or water and it is one of the least reactive chemical element.  Alchemist would say that it contains no life, that it is dead.  Gold is entirely free from imperfections.  Gold is highly conductive to electricity. 

It is believed that most of the Earth's gold lies at its core, the metal's high density made it sink into the Earth’s centre.  All of the gold found on Earth was deposited later by meteorites that contained Gold.

All the beings contain in their inmost centre a precious grain of the elementary goldThe nature of man reflects the entire universe in miniature.
