“Secret of the Golden Flower” is a brilliant chinese alchemical text, and I am going to explain some of the principles mentioned within it. What it calls the Heavenly Heart refers to the pineal gland, or the third eye. This is an electro-magnetic navigator. It is connected to undistorted space-time signalry, which is the 4th dimension. The 3rd dimension is actually the product of space-time distortion; the space-time itself exists, in non-distorted form, in a 4th dimension. The 4th dimension consists of the inter-play of the pure elements of reality, without distortion. 3rd dimensional reality consists entirely of the distortion of these signals by the interplay of electro-magnetic forces between 3-dimensional bodies. In “Secret of the Golden Flower,” a text on Chinese Alchemy, the pineal gland, or third eye, is called the Heavenly Heart. It is further called seed-water, eros.

When space-time creatively expresses itself in 3-dimensional space, a dichotomy is created. One manifestation of this dichotomy is between anima and animus. Animus is the masculine principle, of heaven. Anima is the feminine principle, of earth. The anima is the substrate of form. She is the essence of change itself, and is found within the body.

The pineal gland is related to the eyes. The eyes are like emissaries for the third-eye. The eyes, as pineal emissaries, are designed to specifically tune in to a defined range of electro-magnetic signals. The pineal gland, being in touch with the periodic cycles of the elements, is able to take in information from this limited band-width and sort it according to these patterns, which are found everywhere, at all scales. This ‘Heavenly Heart’ is the dwelling of the animus. The animus lives in the eyes during the day, and is what allows us to see. At night, it is what gives us our dreams.

There is an energy center inside of your stomach about an inch inside. This is sometimes called the tan t’ien, in Zen and other schools. “Secret of the Golden Flower”  calls this thought-earth, the Heavenly Heart of the middle house. This is the house of wu wei, effortless effort, doing without doing. It is the energy-center of intuition. The dwelling place of the anima is in the heart, called ‘the lower heart’ in chinese alchemy. Here is the energy-center of our desire, of our raw passions and emotions. It is here where our bare humanity lies. In your throat is the energy center for self-expression and creativity. This is called spirit-fire, and it is the light, the logos, or the word.

The basic method is circulating light and energy through the pineal gland, through which one gains mastery of the anima, which is the principle of limitation. From Secret of the Golden Flower, “If this method is followed, plenty of seed-water will be present of itself; the spirit-fire will be ignited, and the thought-earth will solidify and crystallize. And thus can the holy fruit mature.”
The meaning is this.
‘Plenty of seed-water will be present of itself”: Through circulating light and energy through the pineal gland, you will naturally be in tune with the patterns of reality. You’ll be in harmony with the Universe.
“The spirit-fire will be ignited”: You will gain touch with the essence of true creativity. Self-expression will flow through you, as if you are a conduit for the energies of the Universe-at-large.
“The thought-earth will solidify and crystallize”: Your very instincts will begin to function according to the patterns of the Universe. Therefore, you will have succeeded in bringing undistorted ‘heavenly’ signals, or elements of 4th-dimensional space-time, into this very physical world.

In my reality, there are bread crumbs everywhere. They lead me to who I am, and who I have become, which is my highest idea of perfection. We all have them, and in all of our cases they lead us to our own conception of the same place. There is a reason that you are attracted to what you are attracted to, and that desirable feelings are stimulated by various things in your world. These are sign posts. They have a lot to teach you, and they are put there to help you remember. I lost the trail for a while, or at least it was reduced to a vague understanding of some general direction that I was heading. Funny how a simple moment of clarity can bring about the remembrance of who you are, and where you are going. It can be difficult to give an articulation that I am completely comfortable with. Am I speaking to myself through reality? Is reality speaking to me through itself? I would say my highest self is my reality, and that he/me/it is always delivering the message through various outlets, highlighting different aspects of it as it is appropriate. I feel like the things in my world are leaving me very specific messages, and when I read things that I have wrote in the past, I feel a sense of awe in seeing clearly that the messenger that reaches out to me in my reality is the same messenger that has written what I have written, and who I ultimately am; “I,” in fact, am the most direct manifestation.

This is related to the concept of relativity. Objects only exist in relation to the subject , which is defined through the point of focus. As we focus, the external reality is formulated in relation to that focus. The more “in tune” we are, the more apparent this becomes. This is because we are more at one with our reality, and therefore realities expression is a more clear and direct representation of you.

We’re just young, misunderstood
Dreamin of a world in which we could
See the change we want to make
Have our words not be fake
As generations past
Whose ideals could never last

My own slice of paradise
Like minds coming together
It’s all I require
The potential I see, in you and me
That’s what I admire

This world, it’s a seed
Unable to sprout, because of greed
Togetherness, ecstatic bliss, rains down from the heavens
Love, our true nature, shines ineffable brightness
The roots are taking hold
Our birth has begun
