Philosophical Alchemy - an Introduction

Postby Mr Ree » Tue Sep 10, 2013 7:17 pm

The summary of any philosophy or esoteric movement suffers an inevitable loss
of meaning, but we can begin by seeing Hermeticism as a practical method of
gnosis, i.e. direct knowledge of the Divine. The true nature of each of us is
Divine and we can, through a process of purification, learning and initiation,
come to have an actual experience of the One.

A key tenet of Hermeticism is the Unity of the Cosmos and the sympathy and
interconnection of all things. Without this unity we could not accomplish the
mystic union, but it also makes possible the spiritual connection, without which
magic, astrology and alchemy could not function.
