The Secret of the Golden Flower was an ancient teaching passed down orally for centuries until it was recorded in the 8th century by a member of the Religion of Light. The Golden Flower is the light and the Elixir of Life. All changes of spiritual consciousness depend upon the heart.
Sophia is the Greek word representing the personification of Wisdom. Sophia is also the light of the first power of the Tree of Life – the perfect invisible virgin spirit. Around her neck is a pendent of 12 spheres, and above her crown are the symbols of mercury and the sun. She carries with her the verse, “visit the interior of the earth, in rectifying, discover the hidden stone.” This stone is the philosopher’s stone, also known as the Elixir of Life.
