ALCHEMICAL VITRIOL – Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultem Lapide
The Tabula Smaragdina Hermetis – Mercury, Sulphur, Salt and VITRIOL
So, This picture, plain and insignificant in appearance,
Concealeth a great and important thing.
Yea, it containeth a secret of the kind
That is the greatest treasure in the world.
For what on this earth is deemed more excellent
Than to be a Lord who ever reeketh with gold,
And hath also a healthy body,
Fresh and hale all his life long,
Until the predestined time
That cannot be overstepped by any creature.
“This picture”, is the diagram above of the TABULA SMARAGDINA HERMETIS.
It is the globe of the earth centered on the Philosopher Stone Center of the Earth of Kundalini Chakra.
It is very far from plain and insignificant as we have seen from our previous article on the Alchemical Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus. It conceals and contains a great and important secret because mere words cannot describe or explain it.
Only disciplined meditation using the Alchemical formula of VITRIOL which we teach in Energy Enhancement Level one Initiation three – as seen in the diagram, will reveal it.
When we use these guided meditations – described as Alchemical Formulae, as above from VITRIOL and as described in the Emerald Tablet of Energy Enhancement Level One Initiation Two and Four it will indeed be a great treasure more valuable than gold, because it is the Elixir that gives us life until our predestined time.
Image may contain: 1 person, fire, night and text
What is the relationship between the Golden Elixir (Not the metal Gold or Fools Gold but the Alchemical Golden Elixir of the Holy Spirit) and VITRIOL? This is the answer.
All this, as I have stated, clearly
Is contained within this figure.
Three separate shields are to be seen,
And on them are eagle, lion, and free star.
These are the three alchemical principles of Mercury, Sulfur and Salt. Note that they are linked by a chain, that is they are a differentiated unity. Meditate upon this using the Energy Enhancement meditation Initiations.
And painted in their very midst
Artfully stands an imperial globe.
Heaven and Earth in like manner
Are also placed herein intentionally,
The imperial globe is the alchemical symbol for VITRIOL. Heaven and Earth are identified with it, because they are the great polarity of the Above and the Below and this polarity is part of the secret. It is highly significant that we are told they are placed here intentionally. And have you noticed the word “artfully”? Alchemy is called the “Art”. Therefore the imperial globe of VITRIOL is placed here by “art”, that is by deliberate alchemical means. We are being told the obvious. That means there is something we have completely failed to understand. It is part of the secret. Another subject taught in the Energy Enhancement meditation Initiations.
THE ART CARD OF THE THOTH TAROT – VITRIOL GROUNDING AND KUNDALINI SHAKTI
ART IS ALCHEMICAL VITRIOL – The Third Initiation of Level 1 of the Energy Enhancement Course
VITRIOL – Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultem Lapidem – See it Written behind the Female figure in the Card above.
The Art Card challenges us to look inward. The process of integration no longer needs outside influences. You must look within yourself to find the hidden treasure.
The Alchemical Union of Fire and Water formerly above the heads in the “Fool” Card has now moved to the center of the Art Card.
This Art card is giving instructions on how to Integrate. How to take the separated parts of the Selfish Competitive Ego. How to Transmute them. How to Purify them. How to create One-ness out of them.
The connection between fire and water, light and dark, male and female, death and rebirth is an inner process. The integration of opposites is the first step to all-encompassing unity. Opposing forces are combined into a new form of being.
This ART Card is the consummation of the process started on the Marriage of the Emperor and the Empress on the “Lovers” card. – The High Art of Transformation of Transmutation, of Purification. Because it is only the blockages which prevent the completion of the process of The Unity of Enlightenment.
This Card is giving Instructions on how to Remove and Transmute Energy Blockages as a major part of the Process of Transfiguration, of Illumination, the Aim and Purpose of the Energy Enhancement Meditation Course. To Achieve the Purpose of Illumination, of Enlightenment, Energy Enhancement uses Ancient Incredibly Powerful Techniques – VITRIOL is Only One of Them!! – To Reach that End!!
Energy Enhancement Student Report 22 March 2017
“In my opinion Energy Enhancement Course is the BEST!! Only 6 weeks into the video course and I can understand life on a whole new level. There are many courses out there to take, but Energy Enhancement is the icing on the cake! You won’t need anything else after you have tasted this!! Not only do you learn very ancient techniques of clearing negative energy blockages, but you are shown step by step on how to solve these “problems” and get rid of them for good!!!
Satchi is one of the most genuine teachers out there. His mastery and skills are at the top. Anytime I have had a problem he has been there to answer my emails. His advice is unsurpassed. Before coming into EE course. I would go from healing modality to healing modality looking for the right fix. Nothing seemed to work! I would feel great for a day or so, then I would slowly sink back into my old patterns. The one thing I am learning from EE is to become a master you must first master yourself! This course will help you to do that! You find something that works and you stick with it! Period!”
Trust your intuition.
Trust your higher self.
Trust your path.
With sincere devotion and time well spent you can have it all.
Anything your soul desires.
Energy Enhancement will show you how to have it all.
And between the hands outstretched towards each other
Are to be seen the symbols of metals.
The hands are another symbol of duality. So now we have: (Above + Below) + (hand + hand). Remember the 4 downward steps of the first process described in the Emerald Tablet? Also significant is the fact that the symbols of the 7 metals are between the polarity of the hands. That is because polarity is the driving mechanism of the whole scheme.
And in the circle surrounding the picture
Seven words are to be found inscribed.
We already know that the 7 words are the anagram of VITRIOL – Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultem Lapidem as it says in the TABULA SMARAGDINA HERMETIS. They are a formula for a guided visualization that takes us to a precise location in the inner landscape, the Chakra below the base chakra, Kundalini Chakra in the center of the Earth which burns up all the pain, the Trauma Formed negative karmic mass for a specific purpose – Grounding the last drops of your VITRIOL or anger in this case. Reading about it will not do it. We must live it in the Energy Enhancement guided Meditation which truly speeds up the process of Illumination.
Therefore I shall now tell
What each meaneth particularly
And then indicate without hesitation
How it is called by name.
Therein is a secret thing of the Wise
In which is to be found great power.
And how to prepare it will also
Be described in the following:
This is a promise to tell us how to transform the Stone of the Philosophers, into the Philosophers’ Stone. They are at opposite ends of a spectrum. But this implies a unity between them and a continuity. So why are they different although connected? What is there to prepare?
The three shields together indicate
Sal, Sulphur, and Mercurium.
The Sal hath been one Corpus that
Is the very last one in the Art.
The Sulphur henceforth is the soul
Without which the body can do nothing.
Mercurius is the spirit of power,
Holding together both body and soul,
Therefore it is called a medium
Since whatever is made without it hath no stability.
For soul and body could not die
Should spirit also be with them.
And soul and spirit could not be
Unless they had a body to dwell in,
And no power had body or spirit
If the soul did not accompany them.
Here are our 3 vehicles of consciousness: Salt is the body; Sulfur is the soul; Mercury is the holy spirit.
We set up the guided meditation using the Holy Trinity. The Holy Trinity in so many religions which originally knew the meditations described by The Holy Trinity, but now all this knowledge has been lost, to be taught in Energy Enhancement the source of all true religion.
Salt is the body; Sulfur is the soul; Mercury is the holy spirit. They are the first part of the antahkarana column of mercury, the Holy Spirit flowing between the two polarities of energy, shakti from the center of the earth – sal, flowing through the Son which is you or Christ sitting on the surface of the earth, and the first chakra above the head, Sulphur the sun/soul.
Of course there are an infinity of chakras above the head ending in God. Our previous article on the Watchtowers describes how the Enochian Keys of Dr Dee purposefully block off the antahkarana at carefully defined chakras usually the Soul, the Monad and the Logos, thus blocking off you from God whilst giving you the appearance of power using a maximum of three chakras above the head.
As we rise through the chakras above the head in Energy Enhancement we contact the infinite energies of God, an Infinity of chakras above the head.
The qualities of Salt are multiplicity and action of Kundalini Shakti from Kundalini Chakra – the Chakra in the center of the Earth (Visita Interiora Terrae); the qualities of Sulfur are unity and will of the Soul or the Sun; the qualities of Mercury are duality and wisdom. We must combine all these qualities for effective and successful living. Our 3 vehicles are a differentiated unity. All the parts must function together. Have you noticed the difference in spelling between Mercurium and Mercurius? Like the Stone, they are related but not the same. They point to something that has to be experienced in Energy Enhancement Meditation, not read.
This is the meaning of the Art:
The body giveth form and constancy,
The soul doth dye and tinge it,
The spirit maketh it fluid and penetrateth it.
And therefore the Art cannot be
In one of these three things alone.
Nor can the greatest secret exist alone:
It must have body, soul, and spirit.
The secret of the Art is the combined effect of all 3 vehicles of consciousness. But where is the “I” that drives them? Where is the divine spark? What is the “fourth”?
And now what is the fourth,
From which the three originate,
The same names teach thee
And the sevenfold star in the lower shield.
The Lion likewise by its colour and power
Showeth its nature and its property.
In the Eagle yellow and white are manifest.
We are directed to the 3 and the 7. There are the three vehicles and the seven pointed star. The star is the body. The seven points are the 7 chakras and they are the connection between Sal the Center of the earth and soul – the first chakra above the head. Thus 3 (principles) + 7 (chakras) = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1. The text is telling us that the “fourth” is the ONE, that is, the union of all these chakras using the Holy Spirit to connect them all within the Antahkarana together with the divine spark of God above the Soul.
The separate reference to the eagle and the lion, is pointing to the polarity of the Above and the Below. This polarity is the driving force of the Prana or Kundalini Energy or the Holy Spirit which connects the entire scheme.
Mark my words well, for there is need of care:
The imperial orb doth exhibit
The symbol of this highest good.
Heaven and earth, four elements,
Fire , light, and water, are therein.
The two hands do testify with an oath
The right reason and the true knowledge,
And from what roots are derived
All of the metals and many other things.
We already know that the imperial orb is the same symbol as the Egyptian Ankh and they are the alchemical symbol for VITRIOL. From its inherent nature of Heaven and Earth – The Soul Chakra and the Kundalini Chakra are powered the 7 metals. These are our 7 chakras powered by the two external chakras . Truly, in VITRIOL – Kundalini Chakra is the answer to what powers the body of the Illuminated person into the base chakra. The other polarity of Sulphur or the Soul – connected through an infinity of Chakras to God is what powers the crown chakra
Now there remain only the seven words,
Hear further what they mean:
If thou dost now understand this well
This knowledge shall nevermore fail thee.
Every word standeth for a city
Each of which hath but one gate.
The first signifieth gold, is intentionally yellow.
The second for fair white silver.
The third, Mercurius, is likewise grey.
The fourth for tin, is heaven-blue.
The fifth for iron, is blood-red.
The sixth for copper, is true green.
The seventh for lead, is black as coal.
Let us recall the 7 words of the seven pointed star of the chakras of the body likened to standing for a chakra as in the sacred city of Saint Augustine: Only Kundalini Chakra is a city with one gate. All the other chakras have two gates because they transmit or channel the energy of the chakra above and that energy comes from God.
What is a city? It is an organic whole comprising of physical buildings (like a body), animated by living beings such as people, animals and plants (like a soul) and directed by abstract principles such as laws and government. Each chakra is like a computer processor – it has its own intelligence, its own spirit, but only when each chakra is connected by the energy of the holy spirit, can the parallel processing supercomputer of the integrated illuminated whole stand free!!
And what is the one gate? There is only one way to enter this city, and one way to come out. And this is the meaning of Rectificando – to rectify the energy in Kundalini Chakra in the center of the earth.
As the energy of God, channelled through the Soul and all the chakras of the body, one by one, passes into Kundalini Chakra in the center of the earth, so that energy is rectified, cleaned and burnt to sacred white ash or vibhuti, cleaned of all negativity in the Fission Fires in the center of the earth and reflected back through the body to the fusion fires of the Soul and thence back to God, creating a circular energy flowing back and forth between to two polarities of Heaven and Earth.
Here is the clue as to how we enter into the center of the earth using Energy Enhancement Vitriol:
The first Chakra is attributed to the Sun. This is the highest heart of the Soul chakra.
The second Chakra is attributed to Mercury. This is the crown chakra.
The third Chakra is attributed to the Moon. This is the brow chakra.
The fourth Chakra is attributed to Venus. This is the throat chakra.
The fifth Chakra is the Heart Chakra of Empathy and Love
The sixth Chakra is attributed to Jupiter This is the navel chakra.
The seventh Chakra . and is attributed to Mars This is the sacral chakra.
The Eighth Chakra is attributed to saturn. This is the base chakra.
The ninth Chakra is Kundalini Chakra – the base of all the other chakras which supplies them all with the reflected energy of God.
There is only one gate for Kundalini Chakra because this is the only way to truly understand what we are being told.
This is the order in which we are to stimulate the chakras:
There is something wrong here. We are told to go from gold to lead, when the whole point of the Art is to transmute lead into gold. Has the author of the text made a mistake? Why has he reversed the order? Could it be that this is a deliberate reversal, to alert us to the fact that the true order (the “one gate” mentioned in the text) is different from that given? Has the truth been jumbled so that “only those with eyes” will see?
Mark what I mean, understand me well:
In these city gates, indeed,
Standeth the whole ground of the Art.
These seven chakras stand on the ground of the Kundalini Chakra in the center of the earth. This is a clear warning that a correct understanding of the doctrine is essential for the Art to be performed successfully.
For no one city alone can effect anything,
The others must also be close at hand.
And as soon as the gates are closed
One cannot enter any city.
No one city/word/metal/chakra alone can achieve anything. All must work together. However if understanding fails, if all gates are closed by energy blockages then the chakras cannot function. “One Blockage and Heaven and earth are set infinitely apart” Zen Master Sosan from the Book, the illuminated mind of Sosan. Thus the secret of Energy Enhancement Level Two – Remove All Energy Blockages!!
And if they had no gates
Not one thing could they accomplish.
If we had no chakras, then we would not even be alive, let alone engaged in the Great Work.
But if these gates are close together
A ray of light appeareth from seven colors.
Shining very brightly together
Their might is incomparable.
When the 7 chakras function correctly, the ray of light that comes from God and the Soul above in a unified way, is very bright and intense. Surely its power is incomparable.
Thou canst not find such wonders on earth,
Wherefore hearken unto further particulars:
Seven letters, and seven words,
Seven cities, and seven gates,
Seven times, and seven metals,
Seven days, and seven ciphers.
Whereby I mean seven herbs
Also seven arts and seven stones.
The repetition of the number 7 serves to emphazise the subtle doctrine of analogy. The Above is like the Below but is not the Below. Seven letters are like seven words; seven times are like seven metals; but the times are not the metals; the ciphers are not the days. Only meditation will lead to true understanding. The point is this. As we progress into higher levels of reality, we are moving into unfamiliar territory. We literally do not know what to expect. However we have a map like the diagram and we navigate by it. A map is not the terrain, it is like the terrain. A map is a symbolic representation, an analogy, of the actual terrain. By following the map we can chart a course in unknown places. By Energy Enhancement Meditation we gain understanding, by guided imagination we make the journey.
Therein stands every lasting art.
Well for him who findeth this.
If this be too hard for thee to understand
Hear me again in a few other particulars:
Truly I reveal to thee
Very clearly and plainly, without hatred or envy,
How it is named with one word
Vitriol, for him who understandeth it.
We do understand vitriol now don’t we? It is the basis for the Art and for the Great Work.
If thou wouldst oft figure out
This Cabbalistic way with all diligence,
Seven and fifty in the cipher
Thou findest figured everywhere.
Let not the Work discourage thee,
Understand me rightly, so shalt thou enjoy it.
We are told bluntly that to figure all this out, we must understand rightly. The right way is kabalistic and the clue is in the numbers 7 & 50. Simple isn’t it? If we look at this literally, we are being told that 57 is key. What does that mean? Let us try this kabalistically:
7 + (5 x 10) = 57
= 5 + 7
= 1 + 2
Quite clearly, this is not ordinary mathematics. This requires a different form of logic and a radical change of perspective. That is precisely what is expected of us. If the diagram is the map, the numbers are the compass:
5 elements (aether, air, fire, water, earth);
10 sefirot on the Tree of Life;
12 signs of the zodiac.
2 polarities of Heaven and Earth, Soul and Kundalini Chakra powered by 1 God
Besides that, note this fully,
There is a water which doth not make wet.
From it the metals are produced,
It is frozen as hard as ice.
A moistened dust a fuller wind doth raise,
Wherein are all qualities.
If thou dost not understand this,
Then I may not name it for thee otherwise.
What is this water that does not wet, from which the metals (chakras) are produced? It is the Dew of the Philosophers. It contains the Salt that acts upon the Sulfur and the Mercury of the Prima Materia. It is the contents of the cup in the diagram. Note that the Sun and the Moon are pouring a liquid into a cup supported by Mercury. This is the Elixir. This is all clear enough isn’t it? Bad luck if it isn’t, because the author of the text will “not name” it for us.
Now I will instruct thee
How it should be prepared.
There are seven ways for this art,
If thou neglectest any of them thou workest in vain.
But thou must, before all things else, know
Thou hast to succeed in purification.
And although this be twofold,
Thou art in need of one alone.
This “water” is prepared in 7 steps. If we ignore any one of them, we shall fail. We must purify first. The secret of purification is in the alchemical koan, solve et coagula, that is;
Solve: dissolve the negativity in the center of the earth to create more of the Holy Spirit.
et: join the chakras together.
Coagula: use the created positive purified energy in the center of the earth to integrate all the chakras by removing their energy blockages and synthezise the purified chakra parts into ONE integrated, unified, enlightened, illuminated, Antahkarana whole.
Negative Energy and Energy Blockages are taken, separated, purified and put back into the “one alone” that we need. This is the “One Only Thing” mentioned in the Emerald Tablet of Hermes. Note well, this is the relationship between the Stone of the Philosophers (Energy blockages) and the Philosophers’ Stone – Kundalini Chakra in the center of the earth.
But what of the “water”? When our 7 chakras are functioning properly, the flow of energy through them looks like water; but it is water that “does not wet” – it is Prana, Kundalini Energy, The Holy Spirit of the One God with 10,000 names.
First we must purify, then we must integrate. Clear enough isn’t it?
The first work is freely done by it
Without any other addition,
Without distilling something in it,
Simply through its putrefication.
From all of its earthliness
Is everything afterwards prepared.
The process is “putrefication”. It is the separation of the vehicles of consciousness, body and soul. Normally, we regard this as physical death. However if we consider it to be an Energy Enhancement integration of all the purified chakras – a projection of consciousness arising from deep meditation and guided visualization, from Kundalini Chakra out through the body into the Soul and thence to God – we get closer to the mark.
This is the Energy Enhancement Guided Meditation.
This is the Guided Meditation of OM!!
This first way hath two paths,
Happy is he who goeth on the right path.
The first extendeth through the strength of fire,
With and in itself, note this well.
The second extendeth further
Until one cometh to treasure and to gain.
This is done by dissolving,
And again by saturating, I inform you:
This must be undertaken first of all,
So comest thou to the end of the fine art.
The “first way” of purification has two paths because the One Only Thing must be separated into two parts. One way is by “fire” and the other way is by “dissolving and saturating”. We must choose the right path. Only Energy Enhancement Meditation will show us the way.
After the whole purification hath been completed
It will be prepared and boiled in the sun
Or in the warm dung of its time,
Which extendeth itself very far
Until it becometh constant and perfect,
And the treasure of the Wise is in it.
Remember, we are dealing with the Dew of the Philosophers. After purification, it is prepared either by boiling in the fusion sun chakra – Sulphur, or in warm dung. Dung? Yes, this is the continual slow heat that comes from the fission fires in the center of the earth, Kundalini Chakra is the Philosophers Stone – a heat that comes from organic substances when they putrefy.
It takes time and patience. This is an analogy for a particular kind of Energy Enhancement Meditation we learn in Energy Enhancement Level 3 – The Cleaning of Karma, the removal of deep energy blockages – requiring patient self-examination. Note the doctrine of analogy again and also note that to examine ourselves requires us to delve into that part of our being that is filthy and stinks. Do you still want to proceed? The treasure of the Wise is in the dung heap. This is the fuel for your enlightenment as you purify the negativity.
The other ways are very subtle
And many mighty one fail therein,
For here is the purpose of the distillation
And the sublimation of the Wise Men.
The separation of the four elements
Is also called by the Wise Men
Air, water, and rectified fire.
The earth on the ground hath mislead many,
Having been deemed a worthless thing,
Although all the power lieth in it.
Distillation is the evaporation and subsequent condensation of the Dew. This purifies and concentrates its volatile essence. Remember that the Emerald Tablet tells us to “separate the subtle from the gross”. Sublimation is the analogous (that word again) process as applied to solids. In this case it is a reference to the Prima Materia. The Tablet also tells us to “separate the earth from the fire”. Hence the special mention above of “rectified fire” and the “earth….deemed worthless…..although all the power lies in it”. The distilled Dew is the sublimated Prima Materia – it is the crystallisation of the purified chakras into one integrated whole which is unchangeably pure and good..
Some know not how to separate it
From their Cortibus, therefore they fail.
It was cast behind the door,
But the Wise Man taketh it up again,
Purifieth it snow-white and clear:
This is the ground, I say in truth.
But if thou dost wish to separate it,
Note that it is of no little importance,
For if they are not prepared
Then you are in error, that I swear.
What is the Dew purified “snow-white and clear”? The Pranic Kundalini energy flows from the 7 purified chakras combine into one white and clear light.
Therefore thou must also have some vinegar
Which is revealed to the Wise Men,
Wherewith thou wilt effect the separation,
So that nothing earthly remaineth in it any more,
Till body and soul have to be separated,
Otherwise called fire and earth
And after they are thus purified,
Alchemical vinegar is the “water that kills and vivifies”. It transmutes the vehicle of consciousness the body, into the vehicle of consciousness the spirit. This involves the separation and transmutation of the negative energy, the Trauma Formed negative Karmic mass, the Energy Blockages from out of the body and soul, as vehicles of consciousness.
Note that purification is associated with separation of the negativity and the burning up of the negativity in the Kundalini Chakra in the center of the earth at first and these an intensification of the fusion energy from God through the third eye in Patanjali Samyama to purify even deeper blockages.
Remember also that the Emerald Tablet associates the process of separation (Earth from Fire/ subtle from gross) “with great judgement and skill”, with the Samyama of Raja Yoga.
And thereupon followeth the mixture, observe!
And so it cometh to a wondrous strength,
The finished figures with the unfinished.
And if the fire be likewise rightly controlled,
It will be entirely perfect
In much less time than a year.
The three pointing hands are showing us something crucial. What was separated, is now mixed and strong. Right control of the fire is the analogy (yes, that word again) for disciplined meditation. There are 12 months in a year, but if we do this right, it will take “much less time than a year”. If we use numbers as an analogy for a compass, we are being pointed in a significant direction. There are 12 signs of the zodiac. What is numerically less than 12 but still alchemically significant? How about the 7 planets? They are the 7 chakras Above the head, analogous to our 7 chakras Below.
Now thou hast the entire way in its length
On which are not more than two paths.
From these one soon wandereth and goeth astray,
Else it all standeth clear and plain.
The one is the water of the Wise Men,
Which is the Mercurius alone.
The other is called a vinegar,
And it is known only to a very few.
And this vinegar doth circle
Away from the philosophical iron.
Now everything is “clear and plain”. Of the two paths, one is the water of the Wise, the Dew, and the other is the vinegar. The Dew is linked to the principle of Mercury, which is the analogy for the vehicle of consciousness, the spirit.
Vinegar is the water that kills and vivifies and is said to move away from the philosophical iron.
This is the Psychic Sexual Connection, cords of energy, the ties which bind, which needs to be Mastered in the Energy Enhancement Level Four – Mastery of Relationships.
This metal is the analogy for the sacral chakra and is therefore linked to sexual fluids. We can understand why such fluids “vivify”, but why do they “kill”? They kill the process of Illumination because sex is connected with selfish desire, “If there had been two things like sex, I never would have become Enlightened” – Gurdjieff.
It is Lord Aes whom it maketh glad.
Therefore they have combined so closely
Many hundred forms and names are given
After each hath chosen it.
One way springeth from the true source,
A few have worked on it for a whole year.
But many through their art and craft
Have shortened so long a space of time.
And quickly is the preparation set free
As Alchemy doth point out.
The preparation is set free by Art. All of this implies that we are responsible to perform the Great Work. No one else will do it for us. Note well, the Great Work is analogous to what Christians call Salvation.
The preparation alone
Maketh this stone great and glorious.
Although there is but one matter
It lacketh nothing else.
But when it is clarified
Its name hath misled many.
However, I have revealed enough to thee
In many ways, forms, and fashions.
There are many names; I say
Let not thyself be misled from the true way.
The preparation which up to now has been concerned with the water of the Wise and the vinegar of the Philosophers, is suddenly related to a “stone great and glorious”. Is this the Stone of the Philosophers or the Philosophers’ Stone? Since it now lacks nothing and has been clarified, we can infer that it is the Stone of the Philosophers or an Energy Blockage which has been purified. It is called many things but we must not be misled by them.
In their scriptures the Elders write
That it is a draught, a great poison.
Others call it a snake, a monster,
Which is not costly anywhere.
It is common to all men
Throughout the world, to rich and also to poor.
It is the property of the metals
Through which they conquer victoriously.
Now the Stone of the Philosophers or an Energy Blockage is called a “great poison” and a “snake or monster”.
All of us have it for little cost and through it, the metals (7 chakras) “conquer victoriously”.
The poison of the snake leads to victory. That is perfectly clear isn’t it?
Is this the kundalini serpent coiled in the base chakra that can poison us if the Stealer on the doorstep – a major Energy Blockage of the Base Chakra is wrongly released, or lead to victory if rightly prepared?
The same is a perfection
And setteth a golden crown upon it.
Now the practice is completed
For him who understandeth it and knoweth the matter.
The “golden crown” is a good description of the Crown chakra in its proper functioning. When that occurs, we have true understanding and knowledge because we then function at a much higher level of consciousness through our rectified vehicles of consciousness.
Only two things more are to be chosen
Which thou wilt find by now
If thou dost follow the right way
And attend carefully to thy work.
The composition is the one
Which the Wise Men kept secret.
If you know the composition, remain silent.
The nature of the fire also hath hidden craft;
Therefore its order is another.
With that, one should, not deal too much
Or else all execution is lost.
One cannot be too subtle with it.
If you know the nature of the fire, remain silent, “lest swine turn and rend thee” – Jesus Christ on the Pearls before Swine.
As the hen hatcheth out the chick
So also shall it be in the beginning,
And time itself will prove it.
For just as the fire is regulated
Will this treasure itself be produced.
Be industrious, constant, peaceful, and pious,
And also ask God for His help:
If thou dost obtain that, then always remember
The poor and their needs.
As it says in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.. “Meditate for a long time, constantly and with Enthusiasm”
En theos isasm – the energy of the alignment with the energies of God..
We must act with the patience and care of a mother hen, to regulate the fire, so as to produce the treasure. All clear now? By the way, our own efforts are not enough. Ask God for help and remember those in need.
As for the Poor in Spirit of the Beatitudes of Jesus – those who have removed their Energy Blockages, “They will see God”
Solve et Coagula – SEC
Ramana Maharshi became enlightened at the age of sixteen, – he Saw God!! Thereafter people brought him all the ancient texts to explain them. Never having seen the texts before he explained them, “From his own experience” This is the methodology of Energy Enhancement Satchidanand
