    Perhaps this image will be the most successful (from my point of view). An archetypal expression of the incarnation process. Or the interaction of Spirit and matter. Or the birth/incarnation of SM. I can hardly put it more precisely.
    One can consider the upper part as a present but unmanifested SM. The lower part as embodied/manifested. By means of the central part/gate.

    Please forgive me if I repeat myself. Because this image has already been mentioned earlier in this topic. But now that my eyes are open...I just don't know how to put it into words.

    ...I am eternally grateful to you, friends. Andro, Salazius, the Green Lion and all the others whom I have not mentioned, but who so patiently and carefully guide people like me. All these years...Your words, your works, your participation...it's hard to overestimate. It's priceless!
    This unspeakable thirst for truth and knowledge literally devoured me from the inside. It was something on the verge of madness, obsession and despair...You have given me peace of mind. Against the black abyss that was inside me...Thank you, Andro. Thank you, brothers. I am restrained in my words. But with tears in his eyes.

    The hourglass..
    Every night i lay down and close my eyes this is what I see.
    Well it fluctuates between the inverted triangles with the center zero point and what I can only describe as "the hallway" which becomes an animated vision as if I was travelling down said hallway.

    If I can relax enough and not get hung up on the apparent imagery flashing before my minds eye all starts spinning. (my being)

    I know this is probably not THAT relevant but I was wondering if any of you might have some insight?

    By the way vyacheslav, you seem like a very humble and thoughtful guy and I just wanted to express that posts like this (the one you just made) make the forum a much more inviting place and I am sure helps to let those helpers know they are appreciated on our journeys.

    Beautiful, Thanks

    Just to clarify what I wrote a bit ago, I pulled this from Andro's quoted post "furthermore"

    "This 'Axis'/'Center' is the Field's 'Bleeding Heart', 'Still Point', 'Null Zone' or 'No Man's Land'.
    (a.k.a. 'Zero Point' in some energy research circles - the principles are EXACTLY the same).



    This is the 'Zone' where it is possible for our 'Dream Particle' (a.k.a. 'Spiritus Mundi') to become physically manifest, away from vulgar/'corrupted' influences.

    This 'Zone' is our 'Portal'/'Gateway', acting like a 'Window' in the 'Wall of Matter', our 'Secret Passage'/'Hidden Tunnel', our 'Rabbit Hole' to Wonderland.

    Are you in the 'Zone'?" I think this is what I am experiencing, and learning slowly to work with it in the waking life if this makes sense. I am visiting "wonderland" often at sleep though not always consciously.. sometimes I am though.

    I'm a little embarrassed after the recent emotional messages. But I feel the need to say a few more words.

    Yes, this forum thread contains a lot of hints, but there are no direct hints and specific instructions here. There are many allegories and metaphors here. The principles and archetypes are described in detail here.
    But all this requires creative assimilation. All this needs to be realized.

    It would not be an exaggeration if I say that this is the most important branch of the forum. The very foundations of philosophy are set out here. And this information has no analogues. But I repeat - this information needs to be understood, deeply understood.

    In my case, I was dealing with insights. Twice I had an epiphany. The first time I was just walking around my house, I just remembered. The second time was a painful and very long sleepless night. I read and took notes. But in fact, I had to explore and understand philosophy or reality to its very foundation. And nothing else.

    Knowledge and understanding only come when one pursues the Art on their own. Others can only provide hints to guide the traveller on his/her personal journey. Thus you will rarely ever see the direct instructions written anywhere in alchemical literature. The hints sometimes point you to those works that do provide detailed instructions (often one work will provide detailed instructions or philosophies that guide you to one part of the work while others guide you to other parts of the work). All it takes is a little effort, reading and understanding to follow those hints.

    There are several works that I know of that provide the philosophy and steps for the entire work, but I never trust those works. No true Philoospher would ever reveal all the steps in order, without obfuscation.
