The Secret of the Golden Flower
The ancient science of alchemy still influences the contemporary spiritual theories, and stays shaping the spiritual philosophies of our time.
The whirlpool of its magic at one point became madness for the alchemists who tried to decipher its secret language of symbols and signs, and for the ones who managed to just bath in the beauty of its images, it stayed full of blessings. The desire to knock on the door that promises eternal life and eternal youth returns through centuries to haunt the alchemists with their quest to know the lapis philosophorum, the philosopher's stone - the legendary alchemical substancecapable of turning base metals into gold.
Chinese Alchemy, Secret of Golden Flower - Merge of Male and Female Energy
It is the merge of male and female that fascinates us so much, it is the White Queen and the Black King that unite to give a birth to a child that is perfect and immortal. It is Taoist Yin and Yang that when circling in perfect harmony create balance and harmony within a Human Being, on Earth and in Universe.
It is Male that is our Collective Consciousness, that is Sun, Reason, Science, Law & Order.
It is Feminine that is symbolised by Moon, or Earth, that is the Ocean of our Collective Sub-Conscious, it is our Dream Consciousness, our shadow existence, trance, dragon and the snake, siren and medusa, that is Life that creates and destroys itself.
