This is the spiritual ancient alchemy symbol for the right eye of the soul,
by which it looks to the eternal. This symbol allows focus on higher,
finer spiritual vibrations. It also ascertains the infinite nature of our soul,
and our capability to tap into the infinite universe.
Alchemy is the art of liberating parts of the Cosmos
from temporal existence and achieving perfection which,
for metals is gold, and for man, longevity, then immortality
and, finally, redemption.
Material perfection was sought through the action
of a preparation (Philosopher’s Stone for metals;
Elixir of Life for humans), while spiritual ennoblement
resulted from some form of inner revelation or other enlightenment.
