Ashes to ashes

It is the initiate, who has been tried by fire and is eager for more

solar consciousness, the bright light of illumination. But the soul

can only grow if it allows itself to receive the grace that is now 

its due. We must respond to the feminine: cool down, absorb,

and reflect in order to dissolve. Reduce to ashes, we dissolve

into tears. Our tears sprinkle on our roasting ashes...dissolving

pain. When there is no more pain, the process is over. We have

survived; we are naked, but connected to our soul. The love of

the universe...has come to our rescue...We are 

empowered, able to dissolve any obstacles.

-Francis Melville "The Book of Alchemy"
