…let us recognize that the word “altar” signifies a sacred place of change. Here all change is wrought by God’s law. God is law; His law does not exist without love….(yet) it has been possible for man to separate the law from love. Thus the more mechanical aspects of alchemy, called magic, have been employed down through the centuries by those who have used their knowledge of God’s laws for selfish ends. This was demonstrated at the court of Pharaoh when Aaron, a true alchemist of the Spirit, was challenged by the magicians who cast down their rods that also became serpents….
With an awareness of the law, faith in its impersonal operation and a determined intent that once the formula has been developed the desired manifestation must be released into form, we shall proceed with the business of creating change. -Saint Germain: Pearls of Wisdom 13:1 -scientist Roger Bacon by Gordon Ross, 1941-Portia by John William Wright, 1846
