Perform the Great Work
This is the third course in the Twenty-One Brotherhood of Light Course series by C. C. Zain on the Hermetic Sciences, Astrology, Alchemy, Tarot, Kabbalah and the Occult.
Progress depends upon successful adaptation to environment. Mental Alchemy enables one to adapt successfully to both inner plane and outer plane influences. And as all physical life is limited, Spiritual Alchemy is the Great Work which embraces the development of a vehicle that ensures self-conscious immortality into the regions beyond the tomb.
In this course, the author thoroughly explains the purpose of, and methods used in, spiritual alchemy and how it relates to evolution of consciousness and the experiences and events of everyday life. The ancient alchemist sought transmutation and immortality. For the soul to be immortal it must build for itself an imperishable spiritual body in which it can function after the dissolution of both the physical and astral forms.
Topics include spiritual transmutation, how the metals of alchemy relate to events in the life and their astrological associations, the Reverberatory Furnace, the First Matter, the Philosopher’s Stone, the Elixir Vitae, the Great Work and developing higher consciousness. The alchemical metals of lead, tin, iron, copper, mercury, silver, and gold are described symbols of the many and varied life experiences the soul must undergo in order to build a spiritual body.
This course, together with Course 1, Laws of Occultism, and Course 2, Astrological Signatures, are designed to provide the student with the foundation necessary to delve deeper into occult, esoteric and Kabbalistic studies.
Study questions are included.
