The Emerald Tablet




The Emerald Tablet



Introductory Rubic
In truth, without deceit, certain, and most veritable.

Orientation Rubic
The Doctrine of Correspondences


That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above,
and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below,
to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing.
And just as all things have come from this One Thing,
through the meditation of One Mind,
so do all created things originate from this One Thing,
through transformation.

Rubicís Cube
The Divine Pymander and the Mind of the Sovereignty Ė The One Thing


Is father is the Sun; its mother the Moon.
The wind carries it in its belly; its nurse is the Earth
It is the origin of All, the consecration of the Universe;
its inherent Strength is perfected, if it is turned into Earth.

The Pyramid Rubic
The Power of the True Imagination


Separate the Earth from Fire,
the Subtle from the Gross,
gently and with great Ingenuity.
It rises from the Earth to heaven
and descends again to Earth,
thereby combining within Itself
the powers of both the Above and the Below.

The Rubic of the Stone

Thus will you obtain the Glory of the Whole Universe.
All Obscurity will be clear to you.
This is the greatest Force of all powers,
because it overcomes every Subtle thing and penetrates ever Solid thing.

The Pattern Rubic

In this way was the Universe created.
From this comes many wondrous Applications, because this is the Pattern.

The Trinity Rubic

Therefore, I am called Thrice Greatest Hermes,
having all three parts of the wisdom of the Whole Universe.
Herein have I completely explained the operation of the Sun.

The Emerald Tablet Simplified



Introductory Rubic

Truly, without hype, religious exploitation,
or commercial consideration, you can experience Higher Truths.

Orientation Rubic
The Doctrine of Correspondences


You are as much a part of the Material as you are of the Mental;
and you are as much a part of the Mental as you are of the Material,
in order to accomplish the miracles of Light.
And just as all things come from the Light,
through the Concentration of Consciousness,
so do all created things originate from Light,
through the transformation of Thought.

Rubicís Cube
The Divine Pymander and the Mind of the Sovereignty Ė The One Thing


Its father is Energy; its mother Matter;
the Spectrum carries it in its belly;
its nurse is the Earth.
It is the origin of All, the consecration of the Universe.
Its inherent strength is perfected, if it is materialized.

The Pyramid Rubic
The Power of the True Imagination


Separate Matter from Imagination, the Subtle from the Gross,
gently, in deepest Meditation.
The Light rises from the earth to Heaven,
and returns again to the earth,
thereby containing within itself the powers of
both the Mental and the Material.

The Rubic of the Stone

Thus will you obtain the Light of the Whole Universe.
All Darkness will be illuminated to you.
This is the greatest Force of all powers,
because it overcomes every Mental thing
and penetrates every Material thing.

The Pattern Rubic

In this way was the Universe created.
From this comes many wondrous Manifestations, because this is the Formula.

The Trinity Rubic

Therefore, this deals with all three parts of reality
and shows the underlying relationship between Energy, Matter, and Light.
Herein is completely explained the Fountain of Consciousness.

to track where you are in your transformation.

0 = never true
1 = rarely true
2 = sometimes true
3 = often true
4 = usually true,
5 = always true.
Try to be as objective and honest as possible in your responses.

1. If someone cuts me off or drives too slow while Iím driving, I curse at them or try to get even.
2. The harder I try to accomplish something, the more obstacles get in my way.
3. During my free time, I have a hard time finding something to do.
4. When I first meet people, I judge them by how good-looking or well-dressed they are.

To score yourself, add up the numbers for statements 1 through 10, then add up the numbers for 11 through 21. Subtract the total for statements 1 through 10 from the total for numbers 11 through 21; this is your score. Any negative scores should be interpreted as a score of 0.

Meaning of Your Score on the Personal Alchemy Quiz



0 to 7 Points: You are, likely, still in the Calcinations phase of your personal alchemy and need to take definitive steps toward breaking free of your materialistic viewpoint. Try to find the time to attend lectures by spiritual leaders, read their books, or begin a private program of meditation.

8 to 15 Points: You are in Dissolution and should make a concerted effort to recognize the spiritual influences in your life. These forces are surfacing, and you should prepare yourself.

26 to 22 Points: You have finally entered the Separation phase and should be taking an honest look at yourself and the things that you want to cont on later in your life.

23 to 30 Points: You have reached a Conjunction of the opposing forces of your personality. At this time of renewed confidence, you should seek those activities that reinforce your peace of mind. It is an excellent time for a nature retreat or deep meditative session.

31 to 40 Points: You are beginning Fermentation and could be experiencing both mental and physical depression. Be patient and try to feel the full intensity of your thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations, since they are offering you a true escape from the mundane world in which you feel yourself trapped. Higher scores in this range indicate that you are undergoing a period of true inspiration during which you should try to keep as grounded as possible. Keep a journal of your thoughts and dreams no matter how strange or irrelevant they may seem.

41 to 48 Points: You could be experiencing Distillation. This is a true break with the world, so it is important to stay oriented during this disconcerting process by identifying a ďpresenceĒ within you that is always centered.

49 to 55 Points: You are in a stage of Coagulation in which wordly concerns are retreating and hidden spiritual forces are taking on a new reality. Respect the new freedom and perspective you have achieved at this plateau, for in all likelihood, a new round in your personal alchemy is about to begin.
