“Leap clear of all that is corporeal, and make yourself grown to a like expanse with that greatness which is beyond all measure; rise above all time and become eternal; then you will apprehend God. Think that for you too nothing is impossible; deem that you too are immortal, and that you are able to grasp all things in your thought, to know every craft and science; find your home in the haunts of every living creature; make yourself higher than all heights and lower than all depths; bring together in yourself all opposites of quality, heat and cold, dryness and fluidity; think that you are everywhere at once, on land, at sea, in heaven; think that you are not yet begotten, that you are in the womb, that you are young, that you are old, that you have died, that you are in the world beyond the grave; grasp in your thought all of this at once, all times and places, all substances and qualities and magnitudes together; then you can apprehend God.

But if you shut up your soul in your body, and abase yourself, and say “I know nothing, I can do nothing; I am afraid of earth and sea, I cannot mount to heaven; I know not what I was, nor what I shall be,” then what have you to do with God?”

-Hermes Trismegistus, The Corpus Hermeticum

Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

The alchemical process is regarded by modern culture as a prescientific practice intended to transform lead to gold or to “manufacture” the fabled Philosopher’s Stone, the elixir of the infinite. From what I’ve learned it’s more of a transformative process within the practitioner and the infinite is accessible to all of us.

Two nights ago I had a dream I was looking for Seven of Nine from Star Trek: Voyager to ask her questions regarding hidden wisdom. I woke up at 7:09 AM that morning. Today after a phone call, upon hanging up, I noticed the duration of the call was 8:08, and I woke up at 8:08 today.

- Flag of Rebirth - Spring is almost here. In celebration of the waking of the frozen earth I decided to pay homage to our climb up the axial plane and the return of all things green. Out of the woolgathering winter and into thawing soil and sprouting seeds.
