The Threefold Pathway Of Fire
With The Threefold Pathway of Fire Raphael offers an answer to the authentic sense of quest of many, a path that may lead to the unveiling of our own real and intrinsic nature, which is Completeness-Beatitude. The book is divided into three sections corresponding to the three sadhana (ways) of the Pathway of Fire: Alchemy, Love of Beauty, Traditional Metaphysics.
In the first part, Raphael treats the four means necessary to accomplish the Opus according to the alchemic symbolism. Then, he penetrates the ascesis of the divine Eros as it is embodied in the philosophy of Plato and Plotinus. Finally, he introduces the way of Traditional Metaphysics or "colorless Fire", that which the Advaita Vedanta calls Asparsa (non-support), the way that takes one to cross the abyss between the discursive mind and pure Intellect (Nous).
These three "ways" to realization do not exclude each other but often intersect and integrate in a harmony whose vibrations depend on one's approach to the Opus, on one's energy potential, on one's... Fire.
In the second part of the book, Raphael re-visits the three paths and does it in sutra (verset) form presenting these three ways through a synthesis that radiates his consciential experience.
The Pathway of Fire is not a new teaching nor a syncretism of doctrines, but the universal "Way" to the realization of our own Essence.
