This is a fascinating seminar touching on the ancient mysteries of alchemy -- the search for a way to turn baser elements into gold. Was this search about greed? Was it a metaphor for a spiritual search of turning the baser human nature toward Soul? John-Roger responds to those questions this way, "MSIA is an esoteric mystery school and since it is esoteric, meaning 'inner,' the greater teaching always goes on within." So, today's search is not about greed!
He says, "I'm going to explain the esoteric teaching to you. In the ancient philosophers' manuals, three things were referred to as ingredients for the Philosopher's Stone: sulphur, mercury, and salt. But there had to be a correct combination of these ingredients to bring forward this stone -- this essence. And when these ingredients were correctly balanced, then the wise one was found -- the Philosopher's Stone -- the divine consciousness within each human being. Today, in finding the combination of putting these together, you find your strength." What in the world does this mean?
J-R speaks of today's alchemy. "Now in the moving of the spiritual inner awareness, we start you from where you are." Wherever you are on the scale of transformation, that is your starting point for expanding into the Soul that you are. This seminar will help you place your own personal alchemy in the context of the search through the centuries for the divine consciousness that is already within us.
J-R speaks of the ancient formula of mercury, salt, and sulphur, the search for the Philosopher’s Stone, and the esoteric symbology involved in these actions. And through that shares wisdom about how to discover the God part inside each one of us and coming to a place of knowing it.
