best. tumblr recommend. ever. I adore your appreciation of the ethnic human aesthetic.
Its really magnificent isnt it!
Why the fuck do you always write so much??
There is a lot to write about.
The Kabala, Hermes’ Emerald Tablet, the chinese Secret of the Golden flower, writings of Egyptian, Mayan and Brahmin priests. They all write of a similar method of “Internal Alchemy”.
It consists of nourishing the lower elements of the body to create a fire, this energy then rises to the head then falls back down only halfway to the heart. At that point you are said to be immortal. People who have done this feat in Mayan and Egpytian art are often shown with serpents on their forheads or on their crowns. Showing that the serpent has risen, the serpent being the energy at the base of the spine.
In the chinese Secret of the Golden Flower by Lu Dongbin this process is said to go in stages. The first part is practiced daily for an entire year only to begin. Whether it is symbolic of some kind of natural process, a physical fact for the process of immortality or some secret reserved only for initiates to truly understand I do not know. Though all of these cultures seperated by distance and time practicing the same method must mean that it has some great importance and use or that at some time there was a larger civilization connecting these smaller cultures.
These symbols in EVERY instance are always mirrored by the sun the moon and stars. Both Lu Dongbin and Hermes call the base of the spine the moon, the head the sun and the heart is the earth, the left eye the moon, the right eye the sun and the third invisible eye the earth. All other cultures say similar if not identical descriptions. The mayans even give a map of the stars in reflection to the human body.
One can wonder if this is an ancient universal religion, or some method we have long forgotten but I would suggest all to read every cultures methods for “Immortality” and attempt to practice it because I can barely understand though it seems important.
