Practicing what I Preach

I have devoted a lot of time to getting this blog matrix to the point it has reached, where all the current blogs have been introduced. (it took awhile to get to the last few as I felt I had to introduce some ideas that are used in the introductions and early posts of these later blog. ) To this end I have done less of my daily Personal Alchemy practice then is my preference. As I have repeatedly said and will continue to say through out the posts on this blog matrix, I feel Personal Alchemy to be the foundation for Systems and Global Alchemy and that an on going daily practice of Personal Alchemy is essential and the more the better. So, on this day that celebrates the day the Buddha began to teach the system of Personal Alchemy that came to be called Buddhism, I am putting more fully into practice that which I preach and devoting more time each day to my Personal Alchemy Practice.

Intro to Alchemical Wealth Building Blog

Posted on the Alchemical Wealth Building Blog

The Phrase “Alchemical Wealth Building” can be parsed in two ways-‘Alchemical Wealth’ building as in the building of “Alchemical Wealth” and Alchemical ‘Wealth Building’ approaching building wealth in an Alchemical fashion. At first glance these might seem like different things however it is not possible to be an alchemical ‘wealth builder’ without first and foremost being an ‘Alchemical Wealth’ builder.

Alchemical Wealth is the treasures no thief can steal and no moths can eat. It is what you get from authentic inner alchemy- inner transformation. Wisdom, compassion, unconditional happiness, unconditional bliss, true freedom- these are examples of Alchemical Wealth.

One cannot even begin to build external wealth in an alchemical fashion until one at least intellectually understands that no kind of external wealth (be it money and that which it buys, relationships, achievements, “power”, recognition or even health) can actually be a source of true happiness. To the degree that ones aim at building wealth is based on the mistaken belief…(read more)

This is akin …(read more)

Intro to Transformational Technology Blog

Posted on the Transformational Technology Blog

The first major wave of technological development massively increased our physical power, range and capacity. We learned to leverage our physical strength to be more powerful in battle, travel farther faster, move heavier things, grow more food travel over bodies of water and host of other extension of physical prowess. While this wave continued to expand our physical power, the second wave of development increased our conceptual power. At first this wave expanded more slowly, first with writing, then many centuries later, printing. But in the middle of the last century technology to leverage our conceptual power began to evolve at exponential rates and has now surpassed our physical leveraging power even though it aids us in evolving physical leveraging technology even faster. There is third wave of technological evolution that is has been steadily growing and is on the verge of exponential growth: technology to accelerate our spiritual evolution and personal transformation. The first two wave increased our ability to effect our outer world; this third wave increases our ability to inner world. Einstein observed our technological growth had surpassed our moral/spiritual growth. This third wave that is rapidly gaining momentum will help address that imbalance.

These new technologies play a key role in… (read more)

Reality Hacking Alchemies

This is posted on the Visionary Heart Alchemy Blog

It is commonly understood in many spiritual circles that we create our own reality. Depending on your view, this could be understood literally as creating the actual events of you life, but it can now be said to be scientific fact that we at least create our experience of reality, which is tantamount to creating reality itself. The mechanisms that form our experience of reality include our beliefs, habitual styles of selective perception, meaning and emotion attribution criteria, values, rules, and cultural conditioning. These can be called programs. These programs…(read more)

The Goal of Visionary Heart Alchemy

This is posted on the Visionary Heart Alchemy Blog

The goal of Visionary Heart Alchemy is the goal of all spiritual alchemy. The central goal of alchemy is the transformation of lead (or some other ‘lesser’ metal) into gold. It is widely known in spiritually literate circles that this is a metaphor (which, by the way, appears in both western and eastern historical traditions of alchemy). But why the need for the metaphor, why not just say it plainly. There are several reasons for this. First and foremost is that their really is no way to plainly say …(read more)

Beliefs as Skillful Means

Beliefs as Skillful Means

This is posted on the Visionary Heart Alchemy Blog

When the nature of relative truth is understood it is easy to recognize the how beliefs function (or often dysfunction) as skillful means. What also must be understood is that they are often integral functional components of transformational systems that are required for practitioners of the systems at particular developmental stages. That is to say practitioners at particular developmental stages, who are trying to use the system, must internalize these integral functional components if the system is to function the way it was meant to.

This has several implications. First some of what people call techniques from a system may not work,  work the same way or create…(read more)
