My personal symbol for the philosopher’s stone.  The middle symbol is made up of 7 individual characters representing the 7 planets which symbolize the 7 steps towards making the stone.  Upward triangle is yin, water.  Downward triangle is yang, fire. These three make up the trinity of soul/mind, spirit/god within, body that which mediates between the two.  The circles one gold, the other silver are of male and female states of God. One became two and from that all creation sprang forth… #art #artwork #symbol #alchemy #drawing

"The Truth" - the girls body is a distraction much like the material world.  As above, so below is why the arms and legs mirror each other.  The seven major chakras are present.  However, I have found in alchemy it speaks of the same philosophy so the corresponding alchemaic symbols are on each one as well as using the alchemy color code..

The Subconscious World Inhabited by Self Looking Through the Knothole of Consciousness     - goes with Atlas poem.
Ball point pen on parchment 6” x 6”.  The subconscious world can be considered the dream world, which is real. It is the connection between what we experience consciously and what sense experience with intuition unconsciously.  The dream self is your soul not the person you are now but the sum total of multiple incarnations The fish is the metaphor for my soul.

Atlas…

Who is Atlas? If not a metaphor for our soul

He is the contents that make up or bowl

Empty at birth, but a burden to hold

And even more so as we slowly grow old

Atlas is like a fish swimming in space

Ever watching without leaving a trace

We are oblivious to his constant support

But to him it is that we truly report

He s the three principles that make up life

And the duality that gives us all strife

We are the four elements and he is the fifth

But sadly today he has become all just a myth

The Birth of Thought

The birth of thought is a curious affair
To which the god of science is hardly aware
Because he only looks to that machine called a brain
Much like dismissing the cloud and accepting the rain

A thought is very close to a fox’s tail
The only thing seen as it runs down a trail
It’s what grows outside of space and time
Like a gleaming white grub growing in grime…
