Summary Exploration 9 - Transfiguration - The alchemical process
What does the word ‘immortality’ truly mean? At the foundation of our wonderful planet – of which we know only a very small part which has been severely impacted by our egocentric way of life – there lies a universal, alchemical formula. This formula was and is expressed by the Universal Thought in the ocean of primordial substance. In this way, through an unfathomably long process, the universal idea is realized and the original consciousness is formed in the primordial substance. This original consciousness is the figure in which the universal Spirit expresses itself. The spirit is the bearer of the light.
Exploration 9 - Transfiguration - The alchemical process
In our last exploration we spoke about transfiguration. This process is the aim of our lives as personalities born of matter. Transfiguration can take place when we enter into the process we call the ‘endura’, in which all the unholy forces in the microcosm are neutralized. This makes possible the renewal of the True Human Being, the original Microcosm.
Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15: ‘Listen, I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. [...] For this perishable nature must put on the imperishable, and this mortal nature must put on immortality. [...] Then the saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.’
