When Lucifer and the trinity began to war with each other, those who did not take sides, worthy, noble angels, had to descend to earth to that stone which is forever incorruptible.I do not know whether God forgave them or damned them in the end:if it was his due he took them back.Since that time the stone has been in the care of those whom God appointed to it and to whom he sent his angel.This, Sir is how matters stand regarding the Grail.

Consciousness What is it for?

“I see Your Bridal Chamber adorned, O my Saviour, and I have no wedding garment, that I may enter therein; O Giver of Light, make radiant the vesture of my soul, and save me”.

When we reflect on the qualities of the Buddha we recite a pali mantra which describes & defines the personality: The mantra in english:One who is the perfect teacher, purified of all defilements, achieving perfect enlightment in the absence of a teacher, fully possesed of skilful means(vijja carana) & perfect conduct. One who has walked the straight path, the knower of worlds, the incomparable trainer of tameable ones, teacher of divas(gods) & men, the fully awakened beyond all ignorance, the skilled & perfect teacher.

 Accessing Spiritual Power …!

At the core of the soul there is pure, spiritual power of peace, love, truth and non-dependent happiness. This power provides us with the inner strength needed to change. But how do we access this power? Meditation is the method – it allows this power to come to the surface of our consciousness and into our minds to color our thoughts, feelings and personality. In much the same way as hot, molten lava flows from the core of the Earth to the surface through a volcano, we can create volcanoes of spiritual power when we meditate. Note, though, that we want to use our power in a positive way: we are not seeking the kind of power that is physical in nature and may cause damage, we are seeking spiritual power.

When we get access to our own personal source of the power of peace, love and happiness, we essentially become free of any dependency on external sources for feelings of the same. When we generate our own feelings of love and self-respect, we stop being dependent on others and our addiction to their acceptance and approval reduces and finally disappears. When we generate our own feelings of contentment and joy within ourselves, we become free from the need for substances, places or physical experiences in order to be happy.

Using this inner power in the right way allows us to uproot or remove completely the old negative habits within our personality. Any unwanted habit can be changed and the scars of all the negative habits, which have developed within the soul over a long period of time, during the journey of birth and rebirth, can be healed in a short time span.

To be balanced is to be successful in relationships…!

To be balanced is to have the ability to do the right thing at the right time. It is the ability to use the head and the heart at the same time. It is the ability to have love and discipline. There is neither too much love nor too much discipline. There is an equal quantity of both.

When there is balance in my every act I am successful in my relationships. Because of this I receive their blessings too. I experience success in all I do and am able to enjoy a life of bliss. I am not caught up with questions about anything but am able to get the solutions in a second.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“When the Lover breathes
Flames spread through the Universe
A single breath shatters this world of illusion
Into the tiniest particles
The world becomes an Ocean
……From beginning to end
And then the Ocean disappears into Rapture
At that moment the sky splits open
An uproar fills the world
And all time, space, and Existence disappear.”

 What Would You Do If You Were Invisible?

In Plato’s Republic, Socrates recounts the legend of the Ring of Gyges. It was a magic ring that granted its wearer the power to become invisible. Through the story of the ring, Socrates asks whether an ordinary person would behave morally knowing that his actions would not be observed by others, and therefore he would have no cause to fear the consequences of his actions?

Socrates’ answer is: If a person truly understood his own self-worth, he would not take advantage of his invisibility to do bad. There would be nothing he could gain that would be worth the loss of his integrity.

1 Cor. 3:16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet—Mahatma Gandhi”

Invitation to the feast of the Holy Grail

Come, let us break the Bread of Life in holy love together. Let us drink of the new wine of joy, the ever young life of our ageless Christ. Let us pass the cup of blessing unto one another. Let us be glad in the gladness of the salvation of God.

O Bread of Heaven, thou art the very sweetness of God to our whole being. O Cup of Blessing, in thee is the great joy of our life. Thee we bless with the hands of the love of our body, our soul & our mind. For thou hast filled our whole nature with the joy of God`s strength.

And ye souls, well beloved, ye little ones of the mediatorial Body of Christ, who still abide by the elements of matter, having need of their service, right heartily we invite unto you unto the feast behind the veil of senses.

For ye will yet come, in the day of your stronger vision, unto the spiritual discerning of the Body of the Lord of Life.

And unto you there will be no more need of the symbols, nor any power of illusion, nor any bonds, either in the psychic or in the material degree of life. For when your own Christ, even the Living Sun of your soul, illumines you, ye will not need the light of moon or candle.

Know this to be your sure inheritance, faithful souls, well beloved of the Holy One. And so to you again the Spirit calls:

Come now unto the feast of the Inner Light. Welcome, welcome are you in the name of the King of Joy. Freely, freely flows the wine. Fully, fully is shed the Divine Substance. Drink, drink & eat abuntantly, souls well beloved of the Mother of Life, the Nourisher, the Comforter of your days.

THE Mystery of the Holy Grail

Wheresoever & whensoever any number of purified souls, incarnate or decarnate, have come together, drawn there by the pure desire to receive & communicate good, being unifyed in the Spirit of Love, & having thus become in the very fact one soul in the will of blessing, there arises spontaneously & is formed out of the manifold elements of their individualised soul-substances a body of divine service. This in the degree of the human, is the mediatorial Body of Christ, the vessel of the service of Love, & it assumes a form that is visible to the spiritual seer who sees beyond the shadows of the phantomal into the inner realities of the degree of Life. It appears as a chalice or cup, symbol of the service of Life in all the degrees of manifestation. Its body is composed of the substance of all souls present, seen & unseen, who are in the will of blessing, & the purity & nobility of its body is that of the souls constituting it, & its efficiency to service is their efficiency. And so its power is to draw unto it both from above & below & to transmute the waters of psyche flowing therein out of the lower into the wine of the new or higher life.

For the pure soul whoever suffers for sins not its own is the cup or vessel for the mediating of the Power of Life, & it fulfills its function according to its individuality. It receives of the Life-stream of the Highest as it is shed & descends into our human degree, for it is worthy & fit for such a use. And in the long process of the transmutation of the nature elements of the soul of blameless suffering whereby it has indeed become the cup of heavenly gold, out of its heart has been pressed the wine of God`s joy for the gladdening of the heart of others, & out of its passional life-blood has been distilled the sweet drink of the children & now its substance is given as the food of the love of the Christ-Mother to the little ones.

Behold, ye who can see, & reverence in such a soul the Lamb of God who suffers for & bears away the sin of the world. Behold in its blameless & willing suffering the perpetual sacrifice of the living Christ. Behold in the transmutation of its elements of veritable transubstantiation of the body of man into the body of God, i.e., of the human soul into the divine soul who has come unto the strength of vicarious suffering.

To the seer the inflow of the power of the Highest into its body often takes the appearance of the descent of the Dove, symbol of the richness in fruit bearing & the principles of life thus being communicated.

For, according to the law of the attraction of affinities, out of the higher is drawn unto it the finer individualized essences or powers of the more fully evolved of the Body of Christ-service who can enter the soul of pure love, generated in this unified body of goodwill & service as into a congenial air.

And their sweet life is shed within this body as within a cup.

And this is the pouring forth of the fine substance of the Christ, even the shedding of His Life.

And it is manifested in the soul as the Great Peace of the Great Joy. For it is in the Christ essence & power, rich in divine fecundity. And only in virtue of it can the soul bear the fruit of blessing, & only in the fruit bearing of Christ can the soul taste of the Great Peace of the Great Joy. For she is delivered of her burden of fruit, & there is Peace. But the fruit-bearing comes before the peace. And the White Dove is the richness of the fruit-bearing Christ who is the Love of God. And once its whiteness has blessed the soul, she is nomore barren. And as it abides in the soul so is her fruit bearing. “For without me ye can do nothing.”

Now the Christ substance thus poured forth is both the Bread & the Wine. For it is the living or spiritual manner, diffuse, & passing as a fine rain through the soul that is feed thereon. And it is the fine fruit of the true vine, even the wine of God, ever new & sweet to the soul, for it gladdens her with the joy of the undying Strength. And it is the only food to satisfy the human need. For only by a spiritual substance can the spiritual or deathless soul be fed. And sure as the individual souls of this body of service are so nourished so surely are the needy ones incarnate or decarnate who never fail to be drawn into such a service by the Light of the Love generated into the mediatorial body, nourished. And sure as the souls of the mediatorial body drink of the wine of Life so surely do these weary & thristy ones drink of the Cup of Blessing, & to them it is the very wine of salvation. For the chalice being formed of the manifold elements of all souls present is a whole vessel, a unified body of human power, perfect in its channelhood in which the lowliest soul will find a common substance & through which it may therefore come unto the feast. And herein is found the raison d`etre of all such gatherings in fellowship. For our needy brother or sister who sits by us becomes a partaker of the common good, & it is blessed or healed in body or soul according to the power & faith generated in the unified body of service. And this giving & receiving of a good is according to the great social law of the solidarity of the human kind. And its fulfilment is unfailing. For in it works the very Life of the Holy One of mankind.

Now this is the mystery of the Holy Grail.

mysterium coinjunctionis jung

Fragment of Mysterium Coniunctio)

The central point A, the origin and goal, the “Ocean or great sea,” is also called a circulus exiguus very small circle, and a mediator making peace between the enemies or elements, that they may love one another in a meet embrace”. This little inner circle corresponds to the Mercurial Fountain in the Rosarium, which i have described in my “Psychology of the transference”. The text call it “the more spiritual perfect , and nobler mercurius,” the true arcane substance, a “spirits”, and goes on:

For the spirit alone penetrates all things, even the most solid bedies. Thus the catholicity of religion., or of the true Church, consist not in a visible and bodily gathering together of men, but in the invisible, spiritual concord and harmony of those who believe devoutly and truly in the one Jesus Christ. Whoever attaches himself to a particular church outside this King of Kings, who alone is the shephered of the true spiritual church, is a sectarian, a schismatic, and a heretic. For the Kingdom of God cometh not with observation, but is within us, as our Saviour himself says in the seventeen chapter of St. Luke. That the Ecclesia spiritualis is meant is clear from the text: “But you will ask, whre then are those true Christians, who are free from all sectarian contagion?”. They are the “neither in Samaria, but are scattered everywhere through the world, “in Turkey, in Persia, Italy, Gaul, Germant, Poland, Bohemia, Morovia, England, America, and even in the farthest India.” The author continues: “God is spirit and the truth. After these examinations and avowals I leave it to each man to judge who is of the true Church, and who not.”

From this remarkable excursus we learn, first of all that the “centre” unities the four and the seven into one. The unifying agent is the spirit Mercurius, and this singular spirit then causes the author to confess himself a member of the Ecclesia spiritualis, for the spirit is God. This religious background is already apparent in the choice of the term “Pelican” for the circular process, since this bird is a well-known allegory of Christ. The idea of Mercurio is a peacemaker, the mediator between the warrings elements and producer of unity, probably goes back to Ephesians 2: 1 3 ff.:

But now in Christ Jesus you once were far off have been brought near in the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of two, so making peace and might reconcile both to God in one body through the cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an end. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near; for through him we both have access in one spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built upon the fundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you are also built inti it for a dwelling place of God in the spirit. [RSV]

In elucidating the alchemical parallel we should note that the author of the scholia to the “Tractatus aureus Hermetis” prefaces his account of the union of apposites with the following remark:

Finally, there will appear in the work that ardently desired blue or cerulean colour, which does not darken or dull the eyes of the beholder by healing power of its brilliance, as when we see the splendour of the outward sun. Rather does in sharpen and strengthen them, nor does he [Mercurius] slay a man with his glance like the basilisk, but by the shedding of his own blood he calls back those who are near to death, and restores to them unimpaired their former life, like the pelican.

Mercurius is conceived as “spiritual blood,” on the analogy of the blood of Christ. In Ephesians those who are separated ”are brought near in the blood of Christ.” He makes the two one and has broken down the dividing wall “ in his flesh.” Caro (flesh) is a synonym for the prima materia and hence for Mercurius. The “one” is a “new man.” He reconciles the two”in one body,”an idea which is figuratively represented in alchemy as the two-headed hermaohrodite. The two have one spirit, in alchemy they have one soul. Further the lapis is frecuently compared to Christ as the lapis angularis (cornerstone). As we know , the temple built upon the fundation of the saint inspired in the Shephered of Hermas a vision of the great building into which human beings, streaming from the four quarters, inserted themself as living stones, melting into it “without seam.” The Church is built upon the rock that gave Peter his name (Matthew 16:18).

In addition, we learn from the scholia that the circle and the Hermetic vessel are one and the same, with the ressult that the mandala, which we find so often in the drawings of our patients, corresponds to the vessel of transformation. Consequently, the ussual quaternary structure of the mandala would coincide with the alchemists quaternario of opposites. Lastly, there is the interesting statement that an Ecclesia spiritualis above all creeds and owing allegiance solely to Christ, the Anthropos, is the real aim of the alchemists´ endeavours. Whereas teh treatise of Hermes is, comparatively speaking, very old, and in place of the Christian Anthropos mytery contains a peculiar paraphase of it, or rather, its antique parallel, the scholia cannot be dated earlier than the beginning of the seventeenth century. The author seems to have been a Paraceltist ohysician. Mercurius corresponds to the Holy Ghost as well as to the Anthropos; he is as Gerhard Dorn says, “the true hermaphroditic Adam and Microcosm”:

Our Mercurius is therefore that same [Microcosm], who contains within him the perfections, virtues, and powers of Sol [in the dual sence of sun and gold], and who goes through the streets [vicios] and houses all the planets, and in his regenerations has obtained the power of Above and Bellow, wherefore he is to be likened to their marriage, as is evident from the white and the red that are conjoined in him. The sages have affirmed in their wisdom that all creatures are to be brought to one united substance.

Accordingly Mercurius, in the crude form of the prima materia, is in very Truth the Original Man disseminated through the physical world, and in his sublimated form he is that reconstituted totality. Altogether, he is very like the redeemer of the Basilidiands, who mounts upward through the planetary spheres, conquering them or robbing them of their power. The remark that he contains the powers pf Sol reminds us of the above-mentioned passage in Abu´l-Qasim, where Hermes says that he unites the sun and the planets and causes them to be within him as a crown. This may be the origin of the designation of the lapis as the “crown of victory”. The “power of Above and Bellow”refers to that ancient authority the “Tabula smaragdina,” which is of Alexandrian origin. Beside this, our text contains allusions to the Song of Songs: “through the streets and houses of the planets” recalls Songs 3:2: “I will… go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth.” The “White and Red” of Mercurius refers to 5:10: “My beloved is white and ruddy.” He is likened to the “matrimonium” or coniunctio; that is to say ha is this marriage on account of his androgynous form.

CHRIST, A SYMBOL OF THE SELF”
(Fragment of Mysterium Coniunctio)

The dechristianization of our world, the Luciferian development of science and Technology, and the frightfull material and moral destruction left behind By the second World War have been compared more than once with the eschatological events foretold in the New Testament. These, as we know, are concerned with the coming of the Antichrist: “This is a Antichrist, who denieth the Father and the Son.”, “Every spirits that dissolveth Jesus… is Antichrist…of whom you have heard that he cometh. “ The Apocalypse is full of expectations of terribles things that will take place at the end of time, before the marriage of the Lamb. This shows plainly that the anima christiana has a sure knowledge not only of the existence of an adversary but also of his future usurpation of power.

Why- my reader will ask –do I discourse here upon Christ abd his adversary, the Antichrist? Our discourse necessarily brings us to Christ, because he is the still living myth of our culture. He is our culture hero, who regardless of his historical existence, embodies the myth of the divine Primordial Man, the mystic Adam. It is he who occupies the centre of the Christian mandala, who is the Lord of the Tetramorph, i.e., the four symbols of the evanngelists, which are like the four columns of his great throne. He is in us and we in him. His Kingdom is the pearl of great price, the treasure buried in the field, the grain of mustard seed which will become a great tree, and the heavenly city. As Christ is in us, so also is his heavenly kingdom.

These few. Familiar reference should be sufficient to make the psycologhical position of the Christ symbol quite clear. Christ exemplifies the archetype of the self. He represent a totality of a divine or heavenly kind, a glorified man, a Son of God sinemacula peccati, unspotted by sin. As Adam secundus he corresponds to the first Adam before the fall, when the latter was still a pure image of God, of which Tertullian (d.222) says: “And This therefore is to be considerer as the image of God in man, that the human spirits has the same motions and sences as God has, Thought not in the same way as God has them. “Origen (185-254) is very much more explicit. The imago Dei imprinted on the soul, not on the body, is an image, “for my soul is not directly the image of God, but is made after the likeness of the former image.

THE PARADOXA”

1.THE ARCANE SUBTANCE AND THE POINT.

The tremendous role which the opposites and their union play in alchemy helps us to understand why the alchemists were so fond of paradoxes. In order to attain this union, they tried not only to visualize the opposites together but to express them in the same breath. Characteristically, the paradoxes cluster most thickly round the arcane substance, which was belived to contain the opposites in uncombined form as the prima materia, and amalgamate them as the lapis Philosophorum. Thus the lapis is called on the one hand base, cheap, immature, volatile, and on the other hand precious, perfect, and solid; or the prima materia is base and noble, or precious and parvi momenti (of little moment). The materia is visible to all eyes, the whole world sees it, touches it, and yet no one knows it. “This stone therefore is no stone,” says the Turba, “that thing is cheap and costly, dark, hidden, and known to everyone, having one name and many names.” The stone is “thousand-named” like the gods of the mystery religions, the arcane subtance is “One and All” . In the treatise of Komarios, where “the philosopher Komarios teaches the Philosophy to Cleopatra,” it is said: “He showed with his hand the unity of the whole.” Pelagios asks: “Why speak ye of the manifold matter? The subtance of the natural things is one, and of one nature that which conquers all.”

Further paradoxes: “I am black of the white and the red of the white and the yellow of the red”; or “The principle of the art is the raven, who flies without wings in the blackness of night and in the brightness of day.” The stone is “cold and moist in its manifest part, and in its hidden parts is hot and dry.” “In lead is the dead life,” or “Burn in water and wash in fire.” The “Allegoriae sapientum” speak of two figures, one of which is “white and lacking a shadow, the other red and lacking the redness.” A quotation from “Socrates” runs: “Seek the coldness of the moon and ye shall find the heat of the sun.” The opus is said to be “a running without running, moving without motion.” “Make mercury with mercury.” The philosophical tree has its root in the air (this is probably a reference to the tree of Sefiroth). That paradox and ambivalence are the keynotes of the whole work is shown by The Chymical Wedding. Over the main portal of the castle two words are written: “Congratulor, Condoleo.”

The paradoxical qualities of Mercurius have already been discused in a separate study. As Mercurius is the principal name for the arcane substance, he deserves mention here as the paradox par excellence. What is said of him is obviously true of the lapis, which is merely another synonym for the “thousand-named” arcane substance. As the “Tractatus aureus de Lapide” says: “Our matter has as many names as there are things in the world.” The arcane substance is also synonymous with the Monad and the Son of Man mentioned in Hippolytus:

Monoïmos… Thinks that there is some such Man os whom the poet speak os Oceanus, when he says: Oceanus, origin of gods and origin of men. Putting this into others words, he says that the Man is all, the sourse of the universe, unbegotten, incorruptible, everlasting; and that there is a Son of the aforesaid Man, who is begotten and capable of suffering, and whose birth is outside time, neither willed nor predetermined… This Man is a single Monad, uncompounded and invisible, yet compounded and divisible; loving and at peace with all things yet warring with all things and at war with itself in all things; unlike and like itself, as it were a musical harmony containing all things; … Showing forth all hings and giving birth to all things. It is its own mother, its own father, the two immortal names. The emblem of the whole man, says Monoïmos, is the jot or tittle. This one tittle is the uncompounded, simple, unmixed Monad, having its composition from nothing whatsoever, yet composed of many forms of many parts. That single, undivided jot is the many-faced, thousand-eyed and thousand-named jot of the iota. This is the emblem of that perfect and invisible Man…The Son of the Man is the one iota, the one jot following from on high, full and filling all things, containing in himself everything that is in the Man, the Father of the Son of the Man.

The alchemists seem to have visualized their lapis or prima materia in a similar manner. At any rate they were able to cap the paradoxes of Monoïmos. Thus they said of Mercurius: “This spirit is generates from the substances of the sea and calls himself moist, dry, and fiery,” in close agreement with the invocation to Hermes in the magic papyrus entitled “The Secret Inscription,” where Hermes is addressed as a “damp-fiery-cold spirit”.

The mystery of smallest written sign, the point, is also known to alchemy. The point is the symbol of a mysterious creative centre in nature. The author of the “Novum lumen” admonishes his reader:

But you dear reader, you will have above all to consider the point in nature… and you need nothing else, but take care lest you seek that point in the vulgar metals, where it is not. For these metals, the common gold more especially, are dead. But our metals are alive, they have a spirit, and they are the ones you must take. For know that fire is the life of the metals.

The point is identical with the prima materia of the metals, which is a “fatty water” (aqua pinguis), the latter being a product of the moist and the hot.

Johon Dee (1527-1607) speculates as follow: “It is not unreasonable to suppose, that by the four straight lines which run in opposite directions from a single, individual point, the mystery of the four elements is indicated.” According to him, the quaternity consists of four straight lines meeting in a right angle. “Things and beings have their first origin in the point and the monad.” The centre of nature is “the point originated by God,” the “sun-point” in the egg. This, a commentary on the Turba says, is the “germ of the egg in the yolk.” Out of this little point, says Dorn in his “Physica Genesis,” the wisdom of God made with the creative Word the “huge machine” of the world. The consilium coniugii” remarks that the point is the chick (pullus). Mylius adds that this is the bird of Hermes, or the spirit Mercurius. The same author places the soul in the “midpoint of the heart” together with the spirit, which he compares with the angel who was “infused with the soul at this point” (i.e., in the womb). Paracelsus says that the “anima iliastri” dwells in the fire in the heart. It is “incapable of suffering” whereas the “anima cagastris” is capable of suffering and is located in the water of the perocardium. Just as earth corresponds to the triangle and water to the line, so fire corresponds to the point. Democritus stresses that fire consists of fiery globules.” Light, too, has this point is on the one hand the world´s centre, “the salt-point in the midst of the great fabric of the whole world,” as Khunrath calls it (salt = Sapientia). Yet it is “not only the bond but also the destroyer of all destructible things.” Hence this “world-egg is the ancient Saturn, the … most secret lead of the sages,” and the “ambisexual Philosophic Man of the Philosophers, the Catholick Androgyne of the Sophists,” the Rebis, etc. The most perfect form is round, because it is modelled on the point. The sun is round and so is fire, since it is composed of the “fiery globules” of Democritus. God fashioned the sphere of light round himself. “God is an intelligible sphere whose centre is everywhere and whose circunference is nowhere.” The point symbolizes light and fire, also the Godhead in so far as light is an “image of God”or an “exemplar of the Deity.” This spherical light modelled on the point is also the shining or illuminating body” that dwells in the heart of man. The light of nature is the “radical moisture” (humidum radicale) which as “balsam,” works from the heart, like the sun in the macrocosm and, we must conclude, like God in the “supracelestial world.” Thus does Steeb describe the “second God” in man. The same author derives the gold from the dew or supracelestial balsam sinking into the earth. Here he is probably referring to the older formulations of Maier, where the sun generates the gold in the earth. Hence the gold, as Maier says, obtains a “simplicity” approaching that of the circle (symbol of eternity) and the invisible point. The gold has a circular form.” This is the line which runs back upon itself, like the smake that with its head bites its own tail, wherein that supreme and eternal painter and potter, God, may rightly be discerned.” The gold is a “twice-bisected circle,” i.e., one divided into four quadrants and therefore a quaternity, a division made by nature “that contraries may be bound together by contraries.” It can therefore, he says, be compared to the “sacred city,” Jerusalem (cf. Revelation 21:1 off). It is “a golden castle engirt with a triple wall,” “a visible image of eternity.” Though gold be mute so far as sound or voice is concerned, yet by virtue of it essence it proclaims and everywhere bears witness to God.” And just a God is “one in essence,” so the gold is “one homogeneous substance.” For Dorn the unity of God, the “unarius,” is the “centre of the ternarius,” the latter corresponding to the circle drawn round the centre. The point as the centre of the quaternario of the elements is the place where Mercurius “digest and perfects.”
THE PARADOXA”

1.THE ARCANE SUBTANCE AND THE POINT.

The tremendous role which the opposites and their union play in alchemy helps us to understand why the alchemists were so fond of paradoxes. In order to attain this union, they tried not only to visualize the opposites together but to express them in the same breath. Characteristically, the paradoxes cluster most thickly round the arcane substance, which was belived to contain the opposites in uncombined form as the prima materia, and amalgamate them as the lapis Philosophorum. Thus the lapis is called on the one hand base, cheap, immature, volatile, and on the other hand precious, perfect, and solid; or the prima materia is base and noble, or precious and parvi momenti (of little moment). The materia is visible to all eyes, the whole world sees it, touches it, and yet no one knows it. “This stone therefore is no stone,” says the Turba, “that thing is cheap and costly, dark, hidden, and known to everyone, having one name and many names.” The stone is “thousand-named” like the gods of the mystery religions, the arcane subtance is “One and All” . In the treatise of Komarios, where “the philosopher Komarios teaches the Philosophy to Cleopatra,” it is said: “He showed with his hand the unity of the whole.” Pelagios asks: “Why speak ye of the manifold matter? The subtance of the natural things is one, and of one nature that which conquers all.”

Further paradoxes: “I am black of the white and the red of the white and the yellow of the red”; or “The principle of the art is the raven, who flies without wings in the blackness of night and in the brightness of day.” The stone is “cold and moist in its manifest part, and in its hidden parts is hot and dry.” “In lead is the dead life,” or “Burn in water and wash in fire.” The “Allegoriae sapientum” speak of two figures, one of which is “white and lacking a shadow, the other red and lacking the redness.” A quotation from “Socrates” runs: “Seek the coldness of the moon and ye shall find the heat of the sun.” The opus is said to be “a running without running, moving without motion.” “Make mercury with mercury.” The philosophical tree has its root in the air (this is probably a reference to the tree of Sefiroth).
