The Road to finding the Alchemist within yourself is an Uneven Path with no road signs. Your undivided attention is Required; for when you find this Alchemist, your self-healing begins as you turn yourself to Gold!
What is the “Alchemist Within”?
The Alchemist Within is more than that little voice in your head, beyond your mind, beyond human form, beyond your conscious awareness; it is the awareness of being aware. The true “being” behind all that is in the world of form.
Finding the Alchemist Within means becoming aware of your true self. Not as a human living a lifetime, but rather a consciousness, a light being experiencing a human existence.
Finding the Alchemist Within means traveling outside the boundaries of what is considered normal, to the realm of pure potentiality, and accepting that anything and everything is possible.
How do I find the Alchemist within me?
Finding the Alchemist Within is to walk in the ways of the Alchemist. Alchemists, Sages, Wizards, and Shamans are all beings of nature. They accept what is, without judgment, without attachment, and without pre-determined notions of outcome.
To Find the Alchemist Within is a Journey into yourself.
This Journey has many paths to take – many decisions to make, many ways to possibly forsake. This Journey is not an easy one. It is not a straight line.
Nor is it as easy as, say, taking steps to climb stairs or a ladder.
Nothing is crystal-clear.
Every step of the way challenges you to let go of what you believe, forget how you perceive, and redefine what it is to achieve. You must unlearn much of what you have been taught. Return to innocence. Look at everything in the world as brand new, as if never seeing it before.
Forget what you think you know and trust your gut instincts, intuition, and spirit guided thought.
Release what is not yours. Foster empathetic disassociation and detachment to those things you cannot change.
Have confidence in the fact that less is more. Let go of the world of form and ego.
Accept responsibility for yourself and allow all that is to be as it is. Believe and trust in yourself as the creator of your happiness, health, well-being, and destiny. In essence, turn yourself to GOLD!
Our mission in this lifetime is to experience the emotions, passions, and beauty of living, and to discover our dharma, or purpose, in life. To walk with the Tao Te Ching. To see clearly and live life fully. To learn the lessons of karma, the universal law of cause and effect, gain the wisdom from conquests and consequences, and share the knowledge with those we love… as well as those who cross our paths whom we can learn from and/or teach.
