Alchemy is a misunderstood science on purpose. Those who are attracted to alchemy by base motives are initially, inherently unlikely to understand the goals of the true alchemist. However, those who understand the root purpose of alchemy look beyond the popular fables of transmuting lead into gold, they look more directly into the very heart of the matter; they look within themselves.
Alchemy is the Divine Art; it is an art that unveils the Divinity of each and every person.
All people are always Divine beings; however, their states of conflict within themselves too often hide this truth from themselves.
When a common veil of alchemy that many people may be familiar with is examined we may see that many fools may be lead astray by their own greed, for alchemy is about the inner spiritual transmutation of the alchemist from a condition resembling base lead to a condition more resembling shining gold.
Alchemy is not interested in the material transmutation of any base matter at all.
Once an alchemist has acquired the perfection of themselves that is the true holy grail of each alchemist, the alchemist does indeed evolve powers that place them beyond any ordinary mortal concerns.
It is not these powers that alchemists seek; these special powers are a by-product of each alchemist’s perfection, not their goal.
If power is their goal, then the veils of alchemy will distract those seeking power; such people will become increasingly impotent following the allures of alchemy’s veils until they come to a place within themselves where they acknowledge the paths of their basest desires are all false and the true path they seek exists in their hearts, a path to peace.
So how does alchemy work?
Alchemy works by focusing the alchemist’s awareness on those qualities within themselves that are in conflict.
All people have Divine powers that they use all the time, but conscious volitional control of these powers is limited by any conflicts within themselves.
This is a well understood principle that inspires large social institutions to misinform their populaces in order to repress the emergence of spiritual powers that might ultimately challenge them and challenge their tyrannies over too many people’s lives.
Perhaps all social institutions employ brain-washing techniques of social conditioning to cripple people by teaching them to be in conflict with themselves.
If this were not the case, the natural experiences people have might still cripple them, but because political power is impossible among an enlightened populace all social institutions must learn to stifle enlightenment in order to keep their populaces crippled, in order to maintain their usurped political powers.
People who understand themselves to be eternal Divine beings make very poor slaves.
Consequently, alchemy has been persecuted; the truth of alchemy has been hidden and disguised.
And yet, every person is truly a Divine being, asleep, unaware of their Divinity; every person is already an eternal Divine being, they have always been such, and they will ever be so.
Alchemy teaches this spiritual truth.
Alchemy teaches spiritual and cognitive evolution.
Alchemy teaches enlightenment, alchemy is an enlightenment science.
Alchemy teaches each alchemist the truths about themselves that set them free.
Alchemy is a tool for Divine self-perfection.
Alchemy is a tool that helps perfect Manifestation, another enlightenment science.
All true alchemists are inherently peaceful people, well versed in mediation skills, well versed in teaching peace.
Each alchemist begins their path with this instruction:
From there all else unfolds, always.
Hi John, thank you for commenting here.
We would prefer to keep the topic of this conversation focused on how alchemy can promote spiritual development.
While we applaud geothermal energy production, or any other means of relieving over-dependence upon fossil fuels or other hydrocarbon-burning fuels such as 'gasohol' we do not understand the relevance of your video's contribution to this particular discussion.
We welcome you to make the connection clearer.
