The symbol that depicts the Philosopher’s Stone may just hold the answer to all of our questions. The fact that this simple symbol can contain such elaborate truth is quite astounding, but very real indeed.
The symbol consists of a large circle with a triangle inside it with the points of the triangle touching the circle on three different points. Within the triangle is a square that is flanked with a circle. The large circle represents the heavens or the universe. The triangle within that circle is representative of the ether or spirit world. It is the collective consciousness of everyone and everything. It is in balance with the universe. The square is representative of the earth and included within, it’s four corners represent the four elements. Within that square lies the answer that the symbol is leading us to. The arrangement of the shapes of the symbol naturally draw your eye into the center of the image. This is the point within the circle. As we have discussed in earlier blogs, the point within the circle is one of the most powerful symbols in the history of mankind. It represents the individual or the center. This is the balance point for everything and represents the answer. As we can see, the symbol is not only a mathematical depiction of the whole, but is a symbol of balance between all of the energies and planes of existence. The focus of the symbol is it’s center and that is us. We must strive to capture the balance between all of the energies in our lives. Finding this balance within is the seekers quest. As we look to free ourselves from the bondage of our mental prisons, we must look for this center of balance. It is the point of all love. The center within all of us is the key to finding peace. Not only peace with our selves, but peace for everyone.
