The New Alchemy - Alan Watts Alan Watts an essay from This is It and Other Essays on Zen and Spiritual Experience, by Alan Watts, Vintage Books, 1973, copyright Alan Watts 1958, 1960. This essay was written in 1960. Besides the philosopher's stone that would turn base metal into gold, one of the great quests of alchemy in both Europe and Asia was the elixir of immortality. In gullible enthusiasm for this quest, more than one Chinese emperor died of the fabulous concoctions of powdered jade, tea, ginseng, and precious metals prepared by Taoist priests. But just as the work of transforming lead into gold was in many cases a chemical symbolism for a spiritual transformation of man himself, so the immortality to be conferred by the elixir was not always the literally everlasting life but rather the transportation of consciousness into a state beyond time.

The circular affinity suggests the eternal cycle of life death or death and birth that happens to each life born.

The Tao Te Ching Explained In Depth The Tao Te Ching, also known as the Dao De Jing, is an ancient attempt to point us toward our true nature written by the Chinese Sage, Lao Tzu, in 6th century B.C. Dao De Jing is best translated as "the Way and it's Power". The Dao cannot be revealed or explained adequately in words and yet this beautiful poem was made in an attempt to do so. The Dao along with the Zhuangzi, is a fundamental text for both religious and philosophical Daoism. Many Chinese artists, poets, painters, calligraphers and even gardeners have used the writings as a source of inspiration. The text itself is short, containing only around 5,000 Chinese characters within 81 brief chapters or sections.

theomagica - On Crossing the Abyss The experience of Crossing the Abyss is triggered by a liminal rite and results in a series of liminal experiences in our everyday lives. It describes nothing other than the actual process of crossing the Abyss, i.e. the passing over the visionary threshold that lies between creation and divinity - as well as hopefully a safe return of the practitioner into creation. The term is not specific to a particular rite or tradition of magic but describes an underlying pattern of human existence: When we cross from creation to divinity we are stripped bare of all created forms that we hold as part of our own being: our body, our ego, our memories, our mind, etc.
