Hi - and thanx! - to all who've contributed to this discussion!
I was "away" at the weekend and have only just logged on again to rejoin the debate (please ingore my "on-line" status at times as I seldom "log
off", as it were!)
There's some intersting points emerging from the discussion I think. When I "posed" the question I was well aware that "those that *are*
practicising Alchemy" would be highly unlikely to say, in an open forum, that they were doing so: I belive that alchemy *is* as much a spiritual
joureny as a meta-physical one, and, by extension, such practicioners would be "doing it" rather than "talking about heir progess" (No disrepect
intended, but I hope you know what I mean by this??) That's why I treid to put in a codicle about "Did you know of anyone" rather than assume such
a practictioner would respond directly.
I know that there would be no "quick fixes" with Alchemy but that revelations would only come through much work and meditation and discovery. The
Universe (whatever that is) wouldn't give up it's secrets to the first person to ask I'm sure!!
So, thanx again for taking part in this discussion - for myself, I'll search for "modern day" Alchemists as suggested and see what leads there are
to be had. Now, where's my retort ....
