15. Take care of yourself.
In all your dimensions, take care of yourself. Body, soul/emotions, mind and spirituality. One cannot approach the understanding of the Stone with a low vibration.
Be healthy, in body, mind, soul. Develop Presence to the Now. Keep cool. Enjoy life. Do what you have to do. Don't bypass your life for the Stone.
Everything interfere on everything, everytime. Cultivate positivity in all the areas of your life.
So, stay tuned to what's going on around you, be "aware" (merci Jean Claude VanDamme lol).
16. Stick to the good authors.
Denys Zachaire, Jean D'Espagnet, Nicolas Flamel, Limojon de St Didier, Roger Bacon, Paracelsus, Cosmopolite, Bernard de la Marche Trévisan, Michael Maier, Lambsprink, Raymond Lulle, Arnaud de Villeneuve, Trismosin ... etc etc!
17. Get the Principles before the recipe !
Plenty of recipes everywhere. But the laws, principles, they are the basics. If you have them all, you have the short cut, you don't loose time money, and energy. Knowledge is power, and shortcut too !
18. Keep it simple !
Please, keep it simple ! How many times we have Alchemists getting lost in the most complicated labyrinth ever ... and they made it ! All by themselves !
