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:

  1. More on how to become Immortal... can physical immortality be gained in human form... how dominating kundalini shakti and practicing celibacy human beings finally reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... became immortal... gained omniscience for all practical purposes!

    Who becomes immortal? One who after intense meditation is able to live longer compared to a normal human being or one, who does not have to manifest a body again and again and rests in peace in kingdom of god (termed Baikuntha in Hinduism)... not kingdom of heaven! Negating karma forever is reaching stage of immortality in human form!

  2. Hi ... I know it has nothing to do with the blog's post but I'm a member of AMORC, about to start my 1st degree and I was thinking about joining the TMO too... what do you learn there?... I'm interested in Kabbalah and someone told me that TMO is a great source for Kabbalah... What would be your advice..? what can I find within' the TMO?

  3. Care Frater,

    Your comments are welcome anyway. I would like to say - as a guidance - that I have done the TMO and there you will find only the very basics of Kabbalah, like the Hebrew letters and some references to the sacred texts. That's all. If you want to go deeper better to also seek membership of one of the Golden Dawn orders, wich I suggested is the one I have afiliated myself: HOGD - http://www.golden-dawn.com/eu/displaycontent.aspx?pageid=244-qabalah-collection

  4. is the golden dawn better than amorc? for magic learning.

  5. Is golden dawn better than amorc for learning magic,alchemy etc.
    I once saw an alchemy set for sale in amorc, do they still have it,can you still get it.

  6. Also sorry about the delay on publishing your post (s). For a long time I was unable to access the posts waiting for my approval. Now everything is working fine.

    In Profound Peace & L.V.X.

  7. I want to say that is ridiculous compare AMORC and GD. There are two differents paths. I do prefiere AMORC less superstittion.

  8. Thanks C Her, for the feedback. As you may noticed I have removed the reference to the HOGD from the post, as it belongs to past reflections that changed a long since then (2010). Please refer to more recent discussions on the AMORC in this blog: http://rutilusdiluculo-cmills.blogspot.com.au/2014/06/my-blog-index-of-posts-from-2009-until.html
