“Alcohol” comes from the Arabic “al-kuhl,” which means “BODY EATING SPIRIT,” and this actually serves as the origin for the English word “ghoul.” According to Middle Eastern folklore, a ghoul is an evil demon believed to eat human bodies.
“Alembic” and “alcohol” are both metaphors for aqua vitae, or “life water,” and “spirit” refers to a distilled liquid, which came from Middle Eastern alchemy.
According to health writer and enthusiast Jason Christoff:
“In alchemy, alcohol is used to extract the soul essence of an entity. Hence its’ use in extracting essences for essential oils, and the sterilization of medical instruments. By consuming alcohol into the body, it in effect extracts the very essence of the soul, allowing the body to be more susceptible to neighboring entities most of which are of low frequencies. (Why do you think we call certain alcoholic beverages “SPIRITS”)? That is why people who consume excessive amounts of alcohol often black out, not remembering what happened. This happens when the good soul (we were sent here with) leaves because the living conditions are too polluted and too traumatic to tolerate. The good soul jettisons the body, staying connected on a tether, and a dark entity takes the body for a joy ride around the block, often in a hedonistic and self serving illogical rampage. Our bodies are cars for spirits. If one spirit leaves, another can take the car for a ride. Essentially when someone goes dark after drinking alcohol or polluting themselves in many other ways, their body often becomes possessed by another entity.

“We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.” ~ Alan Watts
Plantom girl I once was
Before trauma decimated
My finely crafted mind
Enlightenment focus inclined
Oozing whips to the heart
Behind a glass
Pressing hands against the window
Which separates us
I can see you
But you cannot see me
Breathing on the translucent
To paint my mark in condensation
Talking to you, to this self, in conversation
Bound in a cast
The movie of life everlast
Ego fractals split
Infinite knots and fragments
I cannot cry for you
For I am concealed in a comatose pharmacological state
Where inner emotions and the past cannot relate
Is it too late
Closing the cosmic gate
Into soul fate
I fell for the bait
Phantom girl I once was.
It is more difficult to contend with oneself than with the world. ~ Kurdish Proverb

Jyoti is a Sanskrit word that means “divine light,” “radiance,” and “brightness.” It is often used as a proper first name, a root word, and as part of compound words for important Hindu practices or concepts.
Within a yoga practice, yogis may wish to connect with jyoti of a particular deity or Cosmic Consciousness through a meditation, asana and/or pranayama practice.
If you understand, things are just as they are; if you do not understand, things are just as they are. ~ Zen Proverb
