Not what might be but what will be because man envisions, invokes and equates with universal Law….
The primary deterrents to precipitation should be recognized as (1) inharmony in the feeling world, (2) a sense of loneliness or abandonment, and (3) a sense of smallness or insecurity and doubt.…let us recognize that the word ”altar” signifies a sacred place of change. Here all change is wrought by God’s Law. His Law does not exist without love….The mechanical aspects of the Law are often combined with trickery to produce phenomena which in the eyes of God are meaningless. Once a man has attained the position of a true spiritual adept he has developed the powers of love and wisdom within the framework of universal Law. He is innocent of harm to any and his alchemical feats reflect his selflessness. …
So now as we face the altar, the place consecrated to the science of wondrous change, we must recognize the two courses before us. The first is to choose a course of action based on the highest knowledge made known to us. We decide what we wish to change, we decide why it needs to change. This gives motive power to our alchemical experiment….the second course of action is to be aware that right change can be produced without conscious knowledge of what that change out to be. We simply invoke from God the purity of His divine plan for right change. -Saint Germain: Pearls of Wisdom 13:10
