Publisher's Summary

The Emerald Tablet is an ancient Egyptian work written by Hermes Trismegistus that is believed to represent a step-by-step instruction manual for the alchemical process of turning ordinary metals like lead into something much more valuable, like gold. The manual consists of 14 cryptic, symbolic statements that many have tried to decipher over the course of thousands of years. I believe the 14 statements of the Emerald Tablet to be a symbolic guide to a far greater treasure than the conversion of lead into gold. I believe it to be, instead, a symbolic guide to the awakening of the human soul. I believe it to be a guide to the conversion of a base and petty human being into an awakened soul, the likes of which we have seen in the Jesuses and the Buddhas of our world. In the Christian Bible, it is said that Adam fell into a deep sleep. Nowhere in that Bible does it say that he woke back up. The purpose of the Emerald Tablet, I believe, is that very awakening.

Preachy for a guy denouncing religion

I was looking forward to a translation on the emerald tablet, not a denunciation of religion and how "evil" and "devisive" religion is. If I want a lecture on "devisiveness" I'll go to a modern college for free.

Intolerant? Surprised.

The premise of this author (apparently) is that folks are intolerant and divisive. I hear the paragraphs said to be the Emerald Tablets. Text of the tablets do not match the author's switch to something that cannot be cited. BUNK

provocative

This book is a great addition to a truth seekers' library. I look forward to reading the author's 2 other books. This book was interesting and thought provoking. It's another view/ perspective that can lead to the narrow path.

Liking it! Very much!

Up to this book I had no exposure to Elmerald tablet context. Came to it through Jungs biography. Book speaks for itself and it is hard to express the inexpressible. To Matthew, I say thank you! Short, sweet and full of personal discoveries. Merely pointing to what we all already know but are afraid to whiteness.
