The sure foundation corner stone the Lord God laid in Zion that the builders of governments have refused to build upon is the Philosophers’ Stone (Isaiah 28:16). Zion refers to the Spiritual Center of human personality, the Point Within where man makes direct contact with the One Reality. The Third Eye is known as the Philosophers’ Stone. It is the organ of true spiritual vision for man to perceive perfect union with his Divine Source. In ordinary people this organ is in an unfinished condition. The making of the Philosophers’ Stone is a free will mental process by which Spirit is incorporated with cells of the body and made one with it by degrees that lead to Spiritual Illumination.
The physical plane is a spiritual fact. Our bodies are composed of atoms of whirling light. We are not limited to having consciousness only on the physical plane. The Spiritual Center is the heart of our being where the inner and the outer consciousness are in perfect fusion and perfect Oneness. Every time the heart changes the future is going to change. There are no structures that cannot be superseded and rearranged by love. That is why it is so important to know love is our unity with God, not the elements of sensuality peaking and struggling to sustain the last of mankind’s efforts to think of the self as master who can control Planet Earth by one’s own one-sided power.
Everyone’s personal life is directly guided by the invisible Intelligence that influences human consciousness. The thought that one is under momentary guidance does not enter the mind spontaneously. Like mathematics, knowledge is required. The idea that one’s personal activities are expressions of universal forces must be known and practiced over and over again before the Inner Teacher awakens the light that is the Life Force itself in all mankind. The light shines in the invisible Substance of Dark Energy that makes up most of the universe. It is man’s responsibility to make himself receptive to the Invisible Intelligence that we call God through the cultivation of purity, humility and love. Love is our unity with God. Each life is given a mission to fulfill in the long journey each must take to unfold upward in consciousness to a higher being. Patience will be sorely tried again, again and again.
Lack of new straight-knowledge is almost beyond belief. Everyone is absolutely dependent on God at every moment. We can do nothing without God and it is time to know it. And the more each person does know it, the more power comes to him to manifest God’s Love for His Creation. What we give out in our thoughts is returned to us in our image! That is Law. Hate and antagonism must be forgiven because they are the natural fruit of ignorance. Seeds of love will offset seeds of fear, and hate, and greed, and selfishness. We must go forward unafraid. The world is not only waiting to hear, the world must hear the new straight-knowledge that will revolutionize the way we think.
Shortly after I met Phil Stone, the words Philosophers’ Stone came to me in a meditation. The legends of the Philosopher’ Stone, which would turn base metal into gold, are allegories relating to Hermetic Philosophy. The Stone is the union of Father and Son. This is what is known in Alchemy as the Philosophers’ Stone. Hermetic teaching have influenced every religion and we are In a time when we shall begin to reconcile the many bits of knowledge that oppose the truth. The Philosophers’ Stone is the Hermetic symbol for a transmuted and perfected state of human personality. The transformed personality, the true Stone of the wise, is grasped by the mind alone by undergoing the inner transmutation to disintegrate one’s own personality. Self-denial does not mean depriving oneself of something one enjoys. It means total repudiation of one’s ignorant interpretation of one’s self.
Desire of Mind is the sole source of Universal energy. Desire comes from God and each one of us is a center of expression growing through our life experience and learning to fulfill our desires in accordance with the divine pattern that is unfolding ‘precept upon precept, line upon line, here a little and there a little’ – Isaiah 28:10.
The pineal gland in the upper central part of the brain is the stone which man must confect to attain perfection. It is the organ that is said to require art in order to complete its function. It is the organ of true spiritual vision for mankind to perceive perfect union our his Divine Source. This inner eye is an organ of sight as well as a point of view and judgment. It is an undeveloped bud. It is the heart or the innermost part and the essential or most vital part of human personality and intellect that shall be regenerated.
The making of the Philosophers’ Stone is a mental process by which Spirit is incorporated with the body and made One with it by degrees that lead to spiritual illumination by doing The Great Work to develop the pineal gland and awaken the Third Eye. The Third Eye gains strength to open as we grow through stages to maturity by unfolding the folded pattern.
In Chinese alchemic yoga this Third Eye is called the Golden Flower. In Western Hermetic Science it is the Stone. In Qabalah the Stone is Father and Son conjoined. To make the gold you must have it. This idea also refers to Jesus’ saying “To him that hath more shall be given.” In religion, the gold of the philosophers is the absolute and supreme reason. In philosophy it is Truth. The physical plane is a spiritual fact. The devil is God misunderstood by man. The devil is the self-conscious self. Evil is due to wrong perception and interpretation of that which is perceived.
Danger can occur when a person hears “voices” before the Inner Sensorium begins to become active by doing The Great Work it takes to purify thought patterns that lead to false judgments and wrong actions. The “voices” are often distorted in the process of maturing to unity with the One Self. There is a way to distinguish between “voices” and the Voice. “Voices” often flatter. They promise great things – wealth, power, knowledge, prominence, etc. The Voice never flatters and never would it ask to bring harm to anyone. It instructs concerning some law of nature that is involved so that we may see for ourselves what we ought to do to strengthen the weakness within ourselves that caused the wrong interpretation.
Gemetria – a system of relationships, developed by the Western Adepts for the purpose of communicating concepts and ideas to their students that could not really be put into the ordinary language – is in disrespect because it has been abused. By perverting it, one may make any writing whatever yield any meaning one wishes to extract from it. It is time for man himself to begin to transmute negative energy with new straight-knowledge for understanding to perfect the state of human personality. Discretion and discrimination give us keys to the true importance of many passages in the Old Testament. The Great Work for humankind is the integration of invisible spiritual energy into visible physical forms. The dangers of wrong thoughts will die out as the power of right takes its place – The Builders of the Adytum.
The unfolding of physical man to spiritual man always comes through cosmic messengers who have been illumined with higher knowledge. A study of the assent of man will reveal that each upward step has been caused by the advent of a cosmic messenger who periodically appears among men with new knowledge that has been revealed to him for the purpose of soul growth to maturity.
The greatest thing that can happen to any man in all the world is the illumination into the God-Light of Cosmic Consciousness. Dr. Walter Russell had a lifetime of illumining experiences. His “flashes” of cosmic experiences began at seven years of age and continued until he had forty-three of them up to 1921. The last one continued for thirty-nine days.
God was his teacher. His education was cosmically acquired because he knew God in him. If one REALLY knows God in one instead of abstractly believing it without KNOWING it, KNOWLEDGE can be cosmically acquired. No books or universities had the knowledge given to Walter Russell. He was not bound by the traditions of past errors of thinking that most students accept as truths when they read the works of “authorities” and listen to older teachers to whom they attribute great knowledge. Walter Russell is the greatest scientist of our time. He was given his Doctor of Science in 1941.
Dr. Russell and his wife, Lao, were both Illuminates. They both fully knew that God had a purpose for their lives to manifest Him by a life of demonstrating the power of man who knew God in him and worked knowingly with Him.
We are all being cosmically educated to the extent we desire to be thus educated. The trouble is that mankind has not yet become sufficiently aware of his oneness with God. He is not willing to believe that he can actually commune with God as Self and Self. He thinks of God as outside of himself, so superior to himself and so outside of himself that he believes direct contact is impossible.
See Chapter 50 – The Philosophers’ Stone for the danger I faced when I did not have Higher Knowing to understand that I was in the process of dying to my personality self and beginning to awaken my Inner Self and neither did he. What he was picking up was correct. His understanding was wrong. He was hearing “voices”, not the VOICE. Danger can occur when a person hears “voices” before the Inner Sensorium begins to become active by doing The Great Work it takes to purify thought patterns that lead to false judgments and wrong actions.
