The Novice is just beginning to be aware
of consciousness, relationship, and their body.
The fuel of alchemical transformation is desire.
Felt, embodied, sexual desire.
If you can't feel your desire, you can't do the practice.
Novice's practice surrendered meditation
An embodied meditation practice
To remove the layer of ego preventing the release of desire into the body
A Disciple has devoted themselves to the work.
Once desire has been released into the body.
We add more and more and more and more of it.
So that the soul and body are purified
Long held emotions are released.
And the fuel of desire is refined
into powerful devotion
This results in an engagement
A precursor to mystical union.
A monk's is practice is integrity.
Integrity is required for mystical union.
One cannot try and change love.
One must accept love as it is.
and only change Self.
By learning our boundaries.
An expression of what we will not do.
We allow Her to do as she will.
And gain integrity with our Self.
The beautiful thing about marriage.
Is that it's just about love and joy.
Thus lovers have no practices.
There are conflicts of course.
Yet those conflicts are resolved
When both Self and Her
are devoted to each other
And in integrity
The Alchemical Marriage
of Self and Her can occur.
To be in Union with Her
is to see as She sees.
And she only sees the Truth.
This is quite unfortunate for our ego.
As our Hearts begin to guide our lives.
Our souls run up against our old thoughts and belief systems.
Which upon contact with Her
Transmuting the Self into Spirit.
This is known as the Dark Night of the Soul.
We are boundless
And do anything.
Transmuting our Form into Spirit.
We recognize our true limitlessness.
Through the full recognition of our shared consciousness.
We come to accept Her Power.
And become Sacred Creators
We continue to practice each rank
As we encounter an aspect of our Self
That is not love or Truth.
Sacred Creation is thus the practice of Transmuting the Consciousness of the World.
