MEDITATION AND THE MOON

There’s a fair amount of what some would call Magick to my spiritual path. Seeing life as cyclic in some ways means respecting the cycles of seasons. No one needs a calendar to achieve this sort of practice. All they have to do is look up into the night sky and pay attention to the […]

THE BRIDE & BRIDEGROOM

“A person can receive not even one thing unless it has been given to him from heaven. You yourselves are my witnesses that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent ahead of Him.’ He who has the bride is the groom; but the friend of the groom, who stands and […]

THE KINGDOM IS WITHIN

Jesus said, “If your leaders say to you, ‘Look, the Kingdom of Heaven is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the Kingdom of Heaven is inside you and outside you. When you […]

JACOB BOEHME AND THE VIRGIN SOPHIA

“Dear Soul! Here sincerity is required: but sincere and determined will must prosecute this or else it will not be achieved. For, if the Soul wants to gain Christ’s knightly crown from the Virgin Sophia, she (i.e. the Soul) must woo it from her (i.e. the Virgin Sophia) with great Love-desire. She must beg for […]

SEEING OTHERS WITH CLARITY

In my train ride into work this morning there was a homeless man screaming at the top of his lungs. Normally, this sort of behavior would aggravate me beyond belief but something prompted me to listen. I stopped reading for a moment and decided to investigate what was happening with him. As he cursed a […]

LETS TALK ALCHEMY 2- THE HOLY TRINITY

In our last chat together on Salt, Sulfur and Mercury we talked about how alchemists viewed our consciousness. We took a look at our triune natures- mind, body and soul- and briefly mentioned how they connect to the Divine. Today, I’d like to elaborate on the alchemical concept of Divine creation. To the left is […]

IS DUALITY THE GREAT COSMIC LIE

“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.” -Kybalion You guys know I’m a sucker for alchemy, hermetic philosophy, and all things esoteric at […]

EPIGENETICS & GENERATIONAL CURSES

LICK YOUR PUPS: HOW NURTURE AFFECTS NATURE So there’s this wonderful research by Dr. Moshe Szyf and Dr. Michael Meaney that came out of the McGill University a couple of decades ago. They’d noticed that some rat mothers licked their pups after being handled by members of the team while others sort of ignored the […]

MY WORLDVIEW: CONSCIOUSNESS IS THE ALL

VITRIOL & THE PHILOSOPHERS STONE Visit The Interior Of The Earth And Rectify The Hidden Stone. We all know this one. It’s a catchphrase from the alchemy of old making a huge comeback of late. We all know the hidden stone is the fabled philosophers stone capable of transmuting baser metals into pure gold. However, […]

MICROCOSMS AND THE SUBCONSCIOUS

Us? This is where people get tripped up over scriptures. We see the word us and start thinking like human beings again. We stumble over trinitarian doctrines ignoring God as a unity or dive into ancient astronaut theory and completely miss the point. This comes from a literal misunderstanding of what the various names of […]
