I consider to share this with you, and you may do with it as you please. The theological knowledge incorporated here, could be in value of some of you, I guess. This is my personal work on the Great Art, I developed a overall explanation for beginners of the alchemical rebirth process, considered of the conscious, or how some pity imposters call it "The great Work".

Again, do with it as you please.

Six Axis Method

8-2 Inertia “Earth-Air”
9-3 Mobility “Fire-Air”
10-4 Rhythm “Earth-Water”
11-5 Activity “Water-Air”
12-6 Wisdom “Fire-Water”
1-7 Will “Fire-Earth”

Inertia/Realization: "Calcination" (Scorpio overpowers Taurus)

About: The confrontation of the self with its shadow - its deepest pain, and the initial avoidance of that pain through addictions, eventually leading to the healing of the self (and therefore others) through persistent self-acceptance in facing one's 'issues.' Being able to BE, and needing nothing more.
Strength: Potential for tremendous self-sufficiency, and the radiation of peace and love.
Weaknesses: Tendency to look to external supports as indulgences and avoidances. Looking outside to avoid being fully present. Difficulty in surrendering control and in embracing emotion. Lazy or difficult habits that maintain inertia and prolong the inevitable.
Paradoxical Solution: If one can cultivate True Beingness, then one really needs nothing more. Yet that is the first time one can handle the presence of wealth, power, wisdom, food, drink, sex, and relationships without misusing them to attempt to establish an external security. One can fully be present to the world and all of its pleasures only when one does not need them as supports.
Calcination - Psychologically, this is a destruction of the lower ego and our attachment to material possessions.

Mobility/Direction: "Dissolution" (Sagittarius overpowers Gemini)

About: Fun. The flow of creative, artistic and mental abilities coupled with the yearning to experience, know, and express more. The challenge to discipline, commit, and narrow the focus so one can express and experience The Truth / True Creativity.
Strength: A playful, open spirit willing to be open to new possibilities, and enjoy them.
Weaknesses: Lack of focus and maturity; creative potential neglected through scattered forces or lack of confidence in oneself. Over-learning -- the desire to know more preventing a deeper experience; the addiction to the mental realm can prevent actualization. The mind may never calm down enough to assume its proper role as a servant, not master. Play can eclipse responsibility.

Dissolution - can be experienced as "flow," the bliss of being well-used and actively engaged in creative acts without traditional prejudices, personal hang-ups, or established hierarchy getting in the way. The Second stage is the "Journey into Self", as Union with the Higher Self," and is called by Dr. Carl G. Jung "The Process of Individuation." - Individuation is the conscious realization of one’s unique psychological reality, including both strengths and weaknesses which allow the individual to defer the momentary needs of shadow and persona and serve the Self as the regulating center of the psyche.
Paradoxical Solution: The greatest expression of Innocence and Creativity comes from growing up and learning to be a focused, responsible adult. Once this is achieved, one's childlike simplicity and creative nature can be fully realized. The child must grow up, and then it can transcend the adult and return to the awakened child. Discipline and grounded practicality are the soil for the child to be reborn in its true potential.

Rhythym/Foundation: "Separation" (Capricorn overpowers Cancer)

About: The yearning to support one's society through developing relationships and family, as well as material and public roles and service. The ability to change to be effective in working and getting along with others. Emotional and physical/practical support for others.
Strengths: Caring, dedication, sensitivity, contribution to the world.
Weaknesses: Changeability creates a lack of authentic self-expression. Sensitivity creates emotional fortresses, distrust, and fear (separation of true self from others). The emphasis on giving creates a difficulty with receiving. Giving so much can lead one to leave 'strings attached.'
Paradoxical Solution: One's first and most important responsibility is to nurture oneself. By receiving as much as one is willing to give, one becomes whole, and then one's simple loving presence does more than all that one has ever 'done' before.
Separation - In Psychological terms, the process of Separation retrieves the frozen energy released from the breaking down of habits and crystallized thoughts (assumptions, beliefs, and prejudices) and hardened feelings (emotional blockages, neuroses and phobias). This misspent energy is now available to drive our Spiritual Transformation.

Activity/Surrender: "Conjunction" (Aquarius overpowers Leo)

About: The flow of creative and charismatic energy into group situations to lead or inspire others and take groups to new levels. The development of the individual self to be able to contribute to the community.
Strengths: Confidence, uniqueness, genius, and eccentricity. Social Orientation.
Weakness: Self-aggrandizement, ego, and selfishness. Shifting the importance from the good of all to the excessive importance of oneself. One's rigid opinions, ambition, or self-centeredness gets in the way of humble, compassionate service (true leadership).
Paradoxical Solution: The best leader strives to be invisible and unworshipped. By giving for the pure enjoyment of giving, rather than for what benefits one may accrue from giving, one's service remains free from egotism and power-seeking. One must identify oneself as all people, then one will not live to compete, gain, and profit for oneself.
Conjunction - Psychologically, It is empowerment of our true selves, the union of both the feminine and masculine sides of our personalities into a new belief system or an intuitive state of consciousness. The alchemist referred to it as the Lesser Stone, and after it is achieved, the adept is able to clearly discern what needs to be done to achieve lasting enlightenment, which is union with the Overself. Often, synchronicities begin to occur that confirm the alchemist is on the right track.

Wisdom/Acceptance: "Fermentation" (Pisces overpower Virgo)

About: The overcoming of guilt, sadness, fear, and self-criticism through the awakening of compassion for oneself and others, leading to effortless selfless service.
Strengths: Humility, growth through crisis, discontent which generates action/surrender, and an orientation towards service and wholeness.
Weaknesses: Neglecting compassion for oneself and not allowing the recognition of one's inherent self-worth. Over-giving or overworking which perpetuates that illusion that there is something wrong with others and oneself (that something needs to be fixed), or preventing one from relaxing and allowing oneself to truly receive love. Being overly consumed with one's problems, sorrow, or growth, perpetuating a cycle of self-absorption.

Paradoxical Solution: One can do nothing truly deep and transformative for others, until one has followed the disciplined path of achieving the deepest transformation within oneself. Self-love opens up the floodgates of compassion. Only then can one's service for others be absolutely graceful, meaningful, and effective.
Fermentation - When the you reach teh essence of your core, comes the introduction of a new life into the Product of Conjunction to completely change its characteristics - that is, to completely raise it to a new level of being.

Will/Unity: "Distillation" (Aires overpower Libra)

About: The use of physical, creative, mental, attractive, and diplomatic power to succeed in one's endeavors. The strength of detachment to preserve individuality and freedom. The balance of independence and relationship. The proper acceptance and release of anger, allowing one to transform anger into energy.
Strength: Being effective in getting what you want (done).
Weaknesses: Ego, selfish orientation (whether obvious or concealed), love tainted with personal agendas, abuse of power or intelligence, manipulation, losing sight of our actual oneness and enforcing separation because of selfish action or the scheming mind, inability to embrace emotion compassionately.
Paradoxical Solution: The only true warrior learns to use their gifts for the good of all, constantly transcending the identification of oneself as an individual separate from others, and coming to identify oneself as the all. A victory for 'me' becomes a victory for all. A victory for 'you' becomes a victory for 'me.'
Distillation - is said to culminate in the Third Eye are of the forehead, at the Level of the pituitary and pineal glands.One becomes far more interested in the greater good of all then merely in his own.

Hi im very interested in this type of work, where did you learn it from? Books? Did you have a teacher who taught you? Do you feel you have mastered all these steps. Thank youa reply to: Argentbenign

Digging into old books mainly, 16th century are decent ones, also, God is the best teacher if you can humble yourself, and I try so. But I am pretty connected with other like-minded people and in a sense we are all teachers to each other. Did I mastered the steps? Maybe to some level, but issues occur from time to time, like old warrior's wounds calling. Its normal I say.

Thank you for the website, i shall try to read through it all. How do you hear god? Is it to do with meditation? Thank youa reply to: Argentbenign

Nope, meditation can bring you different approach, it is like high-tech sunglasses. The problem for speaking with God for any ordinary person is the lack of knowledge where to seek for the "transmission from above". In the past this knowledge was available through having faith in your tribe shaman or society priest, until we slaughtered the shamans and turned the priests to paedophiles. The solution however can be very easy, it is approach of curiosity to detail. Better it can be explained by the meaning of the rune Kano. See it as a torch. A torch in one's hand which if lit could be used to banish the darkness from the corners of the dark room, thus important hidden details and revelations are expected to be observed. In one word: Attention. The attention of a hunter stalking its prey. Your prey is God.

Al-Khem or the Black Land (Egypt) is the root of the word Alchemy and it comes from the Arabs who were so far ahead of the European Christian nations in science and technology that the Crusades would be carried out over b the course of time increasing the knowledge, wealth and power of the Catholic Church and Crusaders especially with the creation of the Temple Knights or Templars who discovered hidden wisdom underneath Solomon's Temple which must mean either a replacement temple or the mount underneath the Dome of the Rock as the Romans tore down the second Temple.

But they called something Solomon's Temple in the history of the Crusades that may have led to the Johannine tradition of the Mandaeans effecting the beliefs of the Templars.

Baphomet=Sophia or Wisdom in (Greek) what's known as Atbash cypher and the goat head represents John's decapitated head and the tradition that Jesus was a false prophet and to blame for the death of the true prophet Yohann the Baptizer, the Prophet par excellence of the Mandaeans. Used as Elijah to make Jesus Messiah Yohann was possibly more beloved than Jesus and had a rival following who never accepted Jesus as the Messiah.

I wonder what else the Mandaeans taught the Templars but they share a Johannine/Yohannite tradition.
