The beauty and wisdom of alchemy transforming a soul into its highest potential. Egyptian creation myths refer to a serpent and a primordial egg, which contained a bird of light. Within the Nordic cultures we find Yggdrasil, the tree provides a magical spring-water of knowledge. In Chinese mythology a Taoist story tells us of a peach magical tree that produces a peach every three thousand years. The one who eats the fruit becomes immortal. At the base of the Tree of Life is a dragon, and at the top is a phoenix. Enjoy my poetic spiritual exploration into alchemy, meditation, Tao, Tantra, magic and mysticism and create your own journey.

Wow! What a Full Moon that was! Once in 50-60 years it shines so bright over our waters. What a magic filled event was to soak in its light and beauty. We all know that the Moon has a profound influence upon us. Many say that the highest energy occurs at the Full Moon. The peak of peaks it was during this year’s Bright Moon.
Have you had a chance to meditate, absorb its beauty and its energy? Have you had a chance to pay your respect?
Have you ever wondered why do we get so exited around this time of the year, dress into skeletons and run around streets in a search of red lanterns and hollow pumpkins, screaming seeing dead men walking, witches laughing, demons trembling and the sick bleeding.
The dead, the sick, the ghosts symbolically exit their graves and enter the world of living in the shape of masks walking aimless through the streets. All the cultures at all ages gave their due respect to death, to ancestors, or are scared of the consequences if they do not.
Both early Buddhists and the Indians burn the bodies of their dead so that the soul does not linger around the body for too long. After death, preparing the dead for the funeral fire, the Lamas (monks) chant for hours to help the soul leave the body. It is believed that for the first 4 days the dead person is not even aware that he or she is dead. During the ‘departure’, the person sees and feels all that they have ever done during their life time. It is believed that a spiritual practitioner will have no fear nor regrets at the time of death and will die in a state of peace.
