Alchemy is one of the thorniest issues of the Hermetic Doctrine: an inexhaustible source of Truth, but also of terrible poisons. Powerful exercise for minds trained to speculation and sophistry and – at the same time – an inspiration source for daring souls willing to face the unknown.
Souls – I underline – not minds. The difference is substantial. Like a key fits only one lock, so the Alchemy Law opens only the souls that have been transformed over the centuries, until they become pliable as wax and hard as steel. Ready souls, as Hermeticism says, human souls, very human, but with an edge over the common souls: the power of love.
It sounds easy, but it’s not so. Love is an over-used word. There are many kinds of love and all originate from sex. However, there is only one Divine Love, that in the body of the Initiate has to become the Light that creates and transforms, heats and cools, solidifies and melts.
