“The substance is always the same, but a new value is given to it, and the new value is the treasure. That is the secret of alchemy for instance.” – Carl Jung, Zarathustra Seminar, Page 653

Not all facts are equal,
To be somewhat pragmatic,
There is always a natural sequel.
By applying conjunction, all answers become automatic.
Elixir of Life in the liquid,
And, the Philosopher’s Stone in the physical,
Some say both ingredients create gold which was historically listed,
Truths over scientific rationale are a true issue.

Debate on the morality of right and wrong,
Material world vs health, wealth and longevity,
The fantasy of the headstrong,
Tools and the nature of reality bonding in positivity.
Directions pointing towards the pressure,
Perspectives with integrity develop curious minds,
It’s not what’s on the surface of the texture,
What we can not begin to understand is what binds.

Pure phenomena of our choice,
Dimensional plains that always simultaneously change,
An ignorant voice,
Not listening to an infinite logical exchange.
The alchemist has a clear idea about his or her own,
Knowing the difference between omens and reality,
When being completely still and all alone,
Language of the world is something you can not just disagree.

This poem was inspired by ‘The Alchemist’ written by Paulo Coelho

“This is why alchemy exists,” the boy said. “So that everyone will search for his treasure, find it, and then want to be better than he was in his former life. Lead will play its role until the world has no further need for lead; and then lead will have to turn itself into gold. That’s what alchemists do. They show that, when we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.” – Paulo Coelho
