Humans are also capable of taming and domesticating the wild beasts within, but in order to do so they need to develop other qualities, and in this case, to understand the rules of Spiritual Alchemy, how to transform base matter into spiritual ‘gold’.
Continued from ‘The Rules of Spiritual Alchemy’, (three days ago)
‘So be glad: you are all very wealthy since you all have weaknesses. But it is essential that you learn how to handle them and put them to work. People find it normal to use the forces of nature, but if one suggests that they might learn to use the gales, storms, waterfalls and thunderbolts that rage within them they are astonished. And yet nothing is more natural, and once you know the rules of spiritual alchemy you will learn how to transform and use even the poisons in you.
Those who have the courage to do so will study these dangerous chemical substances: jealousy, hatred, fear, sexual energy, etc, and learn to use them. In fact you will bottle them and keep them in your medicine cupboards so as to have them to hand whenever you need them. As you can see, all the preconceived notions in your heads are going to have to change from now on.
Now, of course, you must not throw yourself recklessly into evil and try to swallow great chunks of it. In every human being, even the best, there are always some diabolical tendencies, survivors from a far-distant past, and you have to be very careful not to let them loose all at once, thinking that you want to use them. You have to probe the depths gently and bring up only a few atoms, a few electrons, and be sure to digest them thoroughly.
So don’t go rushing off to confront evil in its lair. It has already happened to some who thought they were very strong but who had neglected to build a strong alliance with good and light, and now the poor creatures are in a pitiful state. All their negative forces have pounced on them to loot and plunder them.’
