    “ A GREATER OUTLOOK ”  FOR THE NEW YEAR: SOME NEWLY-UNEARTHED REMARKS OF MARY ANNE ATWOOD.  EXCAVATED & EDITED FROM THE BROWN UNIVERSITY ARCHIVES, WITH NOTES, BY RUSSELL R. YODER +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The doctrine of those who lay claim to a far-higher Source of knowledge are regenerated at the present day for the “ ripening up ”  of conditions towards another “ fulfillment ”  under the Providential order, in which we believe and trust. Any part   of such insight may, in the fullness, be another creative  “ advent ”  which comes about by inter-spheric association, and by forerunning accomplishment within   the Universal Church. I can justly note that our M ystics now do not “ripen” anything   while we trust in partial revelations; which are only accessory to the “ Universal ”  which is everywhere implied –  without “ which ”   –   “ whom ”   –  there is no sufficient help or guarantee of   the further Promise implied. I certainly have no wish to urge  my   beliefs –  they are necessarily crude   ore: Life is too short for the accomplishment of the Aim of the Hermetic Art, which is Life and Art, i.e. the creative   Art of Interpreting holy   Lives! Such is the Promise of Hermetic and all Christian Philosophy: it is also the aim of Eastern Metaphysics. “All is in  Mercury that the Wise Men seek” –  the Tune *   of the Alchemists (so much irrationally abused by old pretenders working in the dregs only, the fallen elements): their   Universal   Subject, viz.   the Cosmic, which contains the Whole   of Nature’s Antecedents in a rudimentary form. This   is the Nature that has to be taken in hand by the Man who is purified and directed to the Divine Law by cooperation with It. Many   profound thinkers, experienced in the fullness * Jacob Boehme’s Tone or “Schall” : otherwise, Mercurio.  of Regeneration, have been thorough Christians in the fullest meaning of the term. Yet little or nothing is known at present of that dear old associative    “ Method of Celebration ”  of the Mystics in the Early Church. (Neither will those who have one of   insight toward these Celebrations be in a hurry for a vulgar revival as substitute for them.)** For what else   can our Philosopher’ s Stone be but crystalized Man, transmuted and transmuting, an immortal concrete Extreme,   not Alpha only but the Omega; having passed through the total ordeal of manifest creation?*** And as respects Philosopher’s Gold   –   why need one conclude that there is nothing whatsoever   in the Light that may be so evolved   through a Life divinely-organized? Only upon this   , as a galvanic basis, shall proceed such a “ Heaven ”  as in the Book of Revelation. –  Respectfully submitted, M.A. Atwood **One compelling window on these “celebrations” is opened for us by the Welsh author, Arthur Machen, in his grail essays about the secret “ Orthodoxy ”  of the earliest Celtic churches. ***Al-Kirmani notes that mankind through its collective history and quest for ethical perfection, recreates the Universe, making up a unified perfect form at the end of time, a ‘Second Extreme’ mirroring Creation’s ‘First Extreme’.
