Alchemy

"Alchemy is a discipline in which an individual uses the machine to refine different substances, combining and separating and processing them by various means, over a long period of time, through the use of slow heat -- by which is meant the application of inexorable and unwavering attention -- producing a chemical and electrical mutation of the machine which is only a reflection of a much deeper internal mutation of the essential self." -- E.J. Gold, The Human Biological Machine as a Transformational Apparatus

A fascinating subject, one that really captures the mental centrum. When you became interested in alchemy, you probably began by reading a few popularized summaries and anthologies. Perhaps you began poring over musty hardcover books from the rare book room or the remotest stacks of a city library, puzzling out arcane diagrams filled with kabbalistic symbols, astrological references, unheard-of chemistry, and who knows what else. You penetrated Jung and other commentators, figured out that you were studying spiritual/psychological archetypes and transformation of self rather than base metals.

Then you got frustrated. Where do you go from here, with a psychic trunk full of systems, processes, diagrams, symbols and exotic foreign formulas for skinning a cat? Wait -- help is on the way! First, read Chapter 14, "Alchemy," in The Human Biological Machine as a Transformational Apparatus. Then select a trial tape to get started on practical alchemical instructions from the viewpoint of preparing the biological machine for initiation and functioning in The Great Work.

Oneness/The Attention of the Heart

Side A: Oneness: The highest form of creation is "the particle" from which comes all other forms. The failure of the human incarnation to awaken the soul leads to this condition known as "Oneness" or "sludge." The human body is a catalyst for the soul's awakening. Its purpose is to infuse the soul with life by passing it through itself. If nothing "real" is done during the lifetime, the soul reverts back to sludge. This tape clarifies the differences between the body, consciousness, being and soul. (1974). Side B: The Attention of the Heart: This talk, given on September 30, 1985 focuses on the different types of attention and primarily on the attention of the heart. Topics include directing the heart's attention at will just as you would the attention of the mind or body; the idea of putting your heart into everything you do.
