Colm Holland’s 40 Days of Alchemy Meditations at home.

DAY 6 - The Language of The World - (The Universal Language)

Meditation 6

If you recall, in Meditation 4 we discovered the true nature of The Soul of the World, which is a living being and we are an integral part of that. In Meditation 5 we found that our purpose is to find our purpose and with the help of The Soul of World you can engage in The Great Work to transform your life. This the life of an alchemist.

Today I have some very exciting news! To help us in our commitment to produce The Philosopher’s Stone, the Soul of The World will speak to us to guide us and direct us. In The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, this is called The Language of The World or The Universal Language.

Can you imagine for a moment, that in a visible universe that is 93 billion light years in diameter, with trillions of planets and stars, and a world wide population 7.8 billion people, The Soul of The World has the desire capacity to assist you and me.

We really do matter because we play a very important role as individuals according to Paulo Coelho:

“The Soul of the World is nourished by people's happiness. And also by unhappiness, envy, and jealousy. To realize one's Personal Destiny is a person's only real obligation. All things are one.” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

That is to say: when you are living a positive life and are fulfilled with a life full of passion, you are enriching The Soul of The World; but when you fall into negativity and give up following your destiny, then The Soul of The World is diminished.

That explains why The Soul of The World not only wants to encourage us every inch of the way through our life, the very desire to follow our dreams comes from there too. Your passion to transform and create The Philosopher’s Stone comes from The Soul of The World.

How does The Soul of The World speak to us? Is it a booming voice from the sky? Is it in cryptic messages in books? Actually no! The ancient alchemists discovered that the Language of The World is written in Luck and Coincidence or what are sometimes called Omens: chance events that occur just when we need them.

I have written at length on the subject of Luck and Coincidence as guides along our alchemical path here: If you join the group you will see how numerous events of coincidence have encouraged me and others along our alchemical journey.

The fact is that you could be missing out on a whole dimension of life simply because your ears are closed to the Language of The World - but it’s never too late to ask for guidance. Love is ready and waiting to give us the ears to hear and the eyes see beyond ourselves and receive all the help we need to create our Philosopher’s Stone.

Here is our mantra for today:

‘Today I have the courage to follow the Language of The World.’

And remember, to encourage you throughout these exercises I have asked Love to give you everything you need to be the Alchemist in your world.
