Thread: One Matter - One Vessel - One Fire

    And it is this Highest Light which is in closest resonance/proximity with the most 'lowly', 'vile', 'rejected' and 'despised' things. Again, see the Ouroboros model.

    Another thing to remember is that those vile things are but gateways for the Higher Light to enter this realm. They are not 'Our Mercurial Matter' per se, but are indeed highly desirous for it.

    A nice quote from the movie 'I ♥ Huckabees': "No Manure - No Magic"
    Okay, thanks for the correction.

    And thank YOU for sometimes pointing out the lack of semantic clarity in some of my posts. I assure you it is unintentional.

    Hi Teo,

    I'm glad you are open to other avenues.

    Urine, as many other matters and secretions, can be prepared to serve as a support for fixing our Living Mercurial Fire (which is actually Our 'One Matter').

    Maybe this is the appropriate place to mention that Human secretions are a bit special (compared to Animal secretions) for the simple reason that they are a sort of 'spiritual interregnum', since the human form is double-animated: First by the Individual (Human) Soul/Higher Self using the body as an incarnational vehicle, and second by the Nature/Earth Spirit animating the physical body itself. More Desire for the Fire, maybe...

    Hey, no problem! It's what I do. I'm also a grammar & spelling nazi. Probably suffer from OCD.

    In my humble oppinion, the matter is the vessel and the vessel contains the fire. So the matter its the vessel and the fire. If theres only one matter, there should only be one vessel with one fire.

    The matter contains something, so it's a vessel. It is called the Vessel of the Nature (do not mess with Vessel of the Art), and contains a Fire, the Secret Fire; some weird substance that has the power to calcinate. But this Fire isn't a common fire, it is philosophical, and isn't a fire at all, it is a Water (a Dry Water), called "fire" because it calcinates.

    This '1/1/1' approach may be interpreted in more ways than one.

    Still, in most cases, there is a need for an external vessel to contain the matter and for an external heat to 'fuel' the process, at least at some stages of the work..

    We have two areas in these forums, one for Spiritual and the other Practical. You might be preaching to the wrong crowd posting here
    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    I'm sorry, but I'm talking about practical alchemy, in a laboratory, with borosilicate flasks, a bunsen burner and such. I'm also talking only about what I've experienced myself. I do not see anything Spiritual here.

    Then I misunderstood what you wrote.

    I believe Asta is referring to a practical (laboratory) aspect. But please, Asta, correct me if I'm wrong.

    I also think that what Asta wrote, may pertain equally to both 'crowds'

    Oops, I just saw the issue has already been addressed

    Just for a quick memory refresh, I will re-quote myself from this very thread, something I wrote here more than a year ago, in February 2010:

    The Vessel by itself will be the Magnet for the Mercurial Fire, which will form/condense/collect/become corporified by itself in your Vessel and it will go through the stages/cycles without any interference on your part.

    It will, however, take quite some time
