Sacred Heart & internal alchemy

A Radiant beauty, always represented with Fire, Light, Blood, and a Cross in the Heart Cavity of the Christ.
Blood is the "Philosopher Stone", or Light coagulated into a corporeal body. The bleeding mean that, from the Heart, the body receive a new Light, a new blood into it's veins, or nadi.
This is the Rubedo.

Isn't it the Philosopher Stone ?
Of course we find the symbol of the antimony/earth here, with the cross on the top of the Earth, saying that the Quintessencia is Present.
Earth/Heart, the H is only at a different place.

The Cave of the Heart is the same thing than the Cave where the little Baby Jesus of Nazareth came to existence. This place is crowned by a Star. The Star is said to be the Venus Light, showing the Morning Sun. Traditionnaly, Love is a Venusian quality, and liked to Heart. The Chakra related to Love is the Anahata Chakra, just above the Hrit Padma, the Sacred Heart. So, the symbolism is true and effective for Yoga too. The Star, the Cave, the Christ/Atman are all present in good order.

We can also look at the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, that locate Tiphereth, or "Beauty", as Solar quality, just at the Heart Place. This interior state is the state of Christ. Continuing on the same pilar, is Daat, and Kether. Daat is a transcendance of polarity, and Kether is the total Transfiguration/Ascension into Light, with the Uncoagulation of the Body of Light.

Joy to the World , the Lord is come!

Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.
Joy to the World, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found.
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

Naturally the Heart is linked to Love. Preparing room to the Heaven King, is preparing our core center, our Heart to receive Light and Life.

Anatomia Auri, the last drawing. Perfectly executed, really nice. It was a special order for one of my best friend, (Hi Basil !).
