The Alchemy of Awareness has two basic goals. One is the acquisition of practical
wisdom. The other is achieving a state of equilibrium. The drive at each level of
awareness, while absolutely necessary, is inevitably a source of suffering. Suffering is a
state of disequilibrium or turmoil. Do alleviate the turmoil caused by a particular drive it
is necessary to bring that drive into awareness. However, in the act of doing so a new
drive is activated which, in turn, is the source of a new form of suffering. And so it goes
as we ascend through the levels of awareness. Only when all of the unconscious drives
have been illuminated in the light of awareness can we truly be free of suffering. The
state of being that is without suffering is equilibrium. In other words, equilibrium is the
absence of suffering which may be achieved through the alchemy of awareness.
