Seven Fundamental Principles That Could Change Your Life
According to ancient Greek and Egyptian literature, Hermes Trismegistus, legendary father of the occult and ascribed founder of astrology, practiced a divinely inspired form of mental alchemy focused on transforming the mind rather than physical materials. In essence, he pursued a sort of spiritual ascension, a transmutation of the soul leading to a freeing of one's true self. For millennia, though, the foundational precepts of early Hermetic mysticism remained shrouded in secrecy, known only to a select few. The Kybalion, purportedly written by three anonymous initiates of Hermes' teaching, finally parts the obscuring fog and reveals clear and simple pathways to understanding and applying the transformative spiritual knowledge, regardless of one's religious tradition or belief system.
This life-changing treatise outlines seven universal laws upon which the entire Hermetic Philosophy, and possibly even the nature of existence itself, are based. These seven key principles are: mentalism, correspondence, vibration, polarity, rhythm, cause and effect, and gender. With its lucid commentary on aphorisms from original source material, The Kybalion provides modern readers with invaluable insights for achieving personal self-development and living the best life possible. It is also a vital resource for anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of paranormal philosophies, arcane truths, esoteric studies, magic, mysticism, the occult, the supernatural, or the wonders of the universe, or those simply seeking a deeper appreciation for the secret doctrines and powerful wisdom of the ancients.
