Indra’s Net. Alchemy and Chaos Theory as Models for Transformation.

In this clear, engaging book, Robin Robertson draws parallels between alchemy and chaos theory and shows how to apply them to our inner development. He is not proposing they replace traditional spiritual paths, but rather that they reflect deep structures in the psyche that any inner journey awakens.

The model they provide necessarily underlies all paths of spiritual transformation and describes a framework for the stages through which any seeker goes. No matter what your particular calling, these insights enrich understanding of the transformative process, whether outside in the world, or within your life.

Product Description

(Wheaton, IL: Quest Books, 2009, 182pp.)

The most important lessonbut one that’s seldom adequately learned

is that, like sub-atomic particles, everything with life exists

within a field of forcein which all affect and are affected

by each one of the others; and that we, the individuals,

and all other individuals like a blade of grass, whale or bacterium;

The most important lesson but one that’s seldom adequately learned

is that; like sub-atomic particles,

everything with life exists

within a field of forcein which all affect and are affected

are not self-existent; but the products

of this unceasing reciprocity.

              Adam Curle “The First Lesson”

There is a spiritual alchemy; by means of which adversity; resulting from attitudes and actions motivated by fear; ignorance and selfishness can be transformed by the deliberate exertion of energies; and the enactment of deeds motivated by knowledge and love.  This process of transformation of the imperfections of existence into a higher state of being; is the theme of Robin Robertson’s useful book.
