Holy Grail & Higher Self

The teaching of the Masters

To get conversant or in permanent tune with our Holy Guardian Angel or Higher Self we need to get our being in perfect energetic balance, removing all the disharmonies, empting the “CUP” to let the pure energy of our Divine Spark to penetrate our Sphere of Sensation (Aura) and manifest itself through us. That’s is the hidden significance of the Holy Grail: Emptiness, space to be filled.

HIGHER SELF INVOCATION

DIVINE GUARDIAN ANGEL, MY HIGHER SELF, INTO YOUR PRESENCE, I SPEAK THESE WORDS.

THERE IS BUT ONE MIND IN THE UNIVERSE THAT IS THE SUPREME LORD OF THE UNIVERSE, AND MY PART OF THAT ONE MIND IS ONE WITH THE ONE MIND OF THE LORD OF THE UNIVERSE, NOW. ALL THOUGHT PROCESSES OF MY MIND ARE OPEN TO, SENSITIVE TO, AND RECEPTIVE TO THE IMPRESS OF WISDOM FROM MY HIGHER SELF. MY MIND IS IMPRESSED WITH CREATIVITY, INSPIRATION, AND GUIDANCE FROM THE DIVINE TRANSCENDENTE PART OF MY HIGHER MIND. MYSTICAL LIGHT OF SELF-TRUTH FROM THE INDWELLING RADIANCE OF MY HIGHER SELF. EVERYDAY, IN EVERY WAY, IN EVERYTHING I DO, THE LIGHT OF MY HIGHER SELF GOES BEFORE ME TO LIGHT MY WAY AND LIFE. FOR THIS REALIZATION OF ONENESS IN MY MIND, I GIVE THANKS... AND SO IT IS!

Hermetic Alchemy & Immortality



After some research and meditations around the subject of Hermetic Alchemy and Immortality, I decided to share those seed thoughts in this post. Keep in touch as this post is under expansion!

Reading some passages from Paul Foster Case's "Hermetic Alchemy" some interesting points come up.

Swami Vivekananda, for instance, tells us about a spiritual school in India called Rasyanas, which are well versed in Hermetic thought, particularly on the "So above, it is below". They believe that we had the power to tap in the infinite source of Light to attain physical immortality while we can complete the Great Work.

Also, in 1879, Dr. William A. P. Martin, a missionary in China, tells us that Alchemy were known and practiced in China at least 300 years BC.

According to Paul Foster Case, Alchemy "is the science of the hidden essence, which is veiled by solar energy." It is an Osirian Art to control the hidden powers and occult forces concealed beneath the physical appearances.

Some points worth to highlight:

1. We exist, we live, in an ocean of spiritual Light and our mind can tap into that unlimited source at will.

2. That creative spiritual Light is concentrated in our Solar body.

3. Hermetic Alchemy is a science related to the Solar Energy and its power of transformation.

4. Our minds have the power to build our bodies at each incarnation on this physical plane, so we have the inner power to rebuild it at will until we can attain enlightment.

5. Preparing our bodies using the spiritual solar energy (using the techniques of Hermetic Alchemy) we can attain immortality, at least until it matters...
  


I would like to open a discussion regarding the concept of an Adept and its required preparation in an esoteric school settings like the Rosicrucian orders, not only AMORC but other Rosicrucian schools or orders as well

Note: This is not a work of fiction but a deep research into the subject supported by many years of study and practices and directed to sincere students of the Rosicrucian Traditions. 

For that purpose I would like to recommend further studies on the Rosicrucian Tradition provided in my eBooks:

The Power of the Magic Circle

 
Continuing my research to gain more insight into the context which Hermeticism developed in the West, I was compelled to read Michael Baigent & Richard Leigh's "The Elixir and the Stone", 1997, page 335. The title is very intriguing and suggestive. The book is a very comprehensive view of influence of the Hermetic thought in the Western culture. However, I stopped in my tracks when I read the following bold statement:

"Metaphorically and often literally, the medieval Renaissance magician would draw a magic circle around himself. From within this protective perimeter, he could then, as he believe, proceed to conjure up, channel and control powers or forces from celestial and infernal sources. Such forces were regarded as potentially dangerous. (...) powers he cannot effectively control - powers which (might) breach his protective circle and destroy him. But even if the magician does retain control over the forces he has invoked, the very circle that affords him protection also imposes on him restriction. He cannot step outside his circle without risking some harm from the what he has loosed. And the magic circle thus becomes a prison, insulating but also isolating the magician from the reality that lies beyond it - a reality in which newly unleashed and potent principles now move unpredictably at large." (pages 335-336)

Worth to mention, that that chapter (The Magical Circle) had only three entries on his bibliographical references on pages 399-400, and not references related to the citation above, so it reflects the author's opinion on the subject.

Do you agree with that?
