In this video you will practically see how to become Alchemists of your everyday life and how you can make the best use of journaling for your spiritual journey.
“Every day you look into a mirror to observe your face and body, because you want to look your best before others. Is it not even more important to look daily into the inner mirror of introspection, to insure the proper visage of that which is behind the superficial appearance? All outer attractiveness derives from the divinity of the indwelling soul. As you do this, you will note many faults; you will also note many virtues. All of these you should record in a spiritual diary. By making a habit of noting these over a period of months and years, you will see the progress you are making as well as the errors you keep repeating — the things to which you need to give more attention. This diary will be a guide; it will be the voice of your inner Guru”. (inspired by Master Yogananda)
True Alchemy does not consist in the spectacular transmutation of base metals into gold, but in the spiritual transmutation of man’s own matter. If a tree, for instance, is capable of transforming the raw mineral nutrients it draws from the soil into the sugar-sap which enables it to produce flowers and fruits, why should man not do likewise? Why should we not be capable of transforming the raw juices of our instincts and passions so that they produce a rich harvest of flowers and fruit, in the form of vitality in our physical bodies, love and joy in our hearts and understanding and wisdom in our minds? (O.M. Aivanhov)
