Emerald Tablet - Part Four
The Path of the Healing Dragon (http://PathoftheHealingDragon.com)is
an alchemical healing path using the Divine energy, called Dragon
energy, to help us heal ourselves. We do that by addressing the
emotional issues in our life. Some people call this Dragon Reiki. But
the technique is not Reiki. True, Reiki and Dragon Energy are both
Divine healing energy. Gnostic News recommends the Path of the Healing

Line four is often translated as "The Sun is it's father and the Moon
its mother." At least, that's the way Issac Newton, Georgio Beato,
Juliet Ashley, Rhodonn Starrus and Betty Reeves put it. Kriegsmann and
Fulcanelli agree. Jabir ibn Hayyan and Madame Blavatsky say: "Its
father is the Sun and its mother the Moon." Same thing.
It's unanimous. Most esoteric writers agree on the translation of this
line. They also agree in their commentaries that the Sun represents
the World of Fire and the Moon represents the World of Water. The
World of Fire is masculine and the World of Water is feminine. The
Worlds of Fire and Water are its parents. The child of the Worlds of
Fire and Water is the World of Earth.
Line four can be written as "The World of Earth's father is the World
of Fire and its mother the World of Water." It can also be written as
the Element of Earth's father is the Element of Fire and its mother

our personal Fire.
The Moon is a symbol for our Soul which resides in the World of Water.
The Soul is the Element of Water personified. Our Soul is the root of
all our feelings, our accepting, forgiving and loving. Our Soul is our
The Child of Water and Fire, the Sun and the Moon, is the Earth on
three levels: 1) the World of Earth, 2) the Element of Earth and 3)
our personalities. According to psychology our personality is
expressed through several Personas. Each Persona is created by us to
meet a specific need like parent, child, teacher, student, employer,
employee, friend, foe, provider, client, participant or spectator.
So we have three levels of looking at the Sun, Moon and Earth: 1) The
Worlds of Fire, Water and Earth, 2) the Elements of Fire, Water and
Earth, and 3) Ego, Soul and Persona. All three levels are important in
the study of the Emerald Tablet, the study of Spiritual Alchemy.
