"medieval chemistry; the supposed science of transmutation of base metals into silver or gold" (involving also the quest for the universal solvent, quintessence, etc.)
Mental Alchemy can be seen as a deeper exploration of oneself (introspection) as a means to re-member or reintegrate back to wholeness where we dance with life again.
Mental Alchemy is especially useful during life transitions and in moments where we are in liminal space. Liminal space is the tension that exists where a choice must be made between two opposites:
-Continue to hold on to the OLD (thoughts, behaviors, beliefs) and return to what you know to be true and real
-Lean into the discomfort of uncertainty and choose the NEW (thoughts, beliefs, behaviors)
The byproduct of the Blue Pill can be seen in the wisdom of the words, “To do the same thing over and over and expect different results is the definition of insanity.”
The byproduct of the Red Pill, I believe C.G. Jung encapsulated it well. “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” - C.G. Jung in a Letter to Fanny Bowdich (October 22, 1916)
“I must let go of who I am in order to become who I might be.” - Lao Tzu
Ergo, the purpose and passion of the Mental Alchemist.
Mental alchemy is a form of accepting the Red Pill. It is to transmute, transform, and transcend moments of crisis or periods of stuckness where extreme emotional tension exists. In this liminal space, one can experience extended periods of emotional purgatory, where a person is not truly living, but merely existing.
