The Theory of Everything which all scientists of the world are looking for has already been existing in ancient times. It is found in what is known as Divine Science.
It exist as the Seven Hermetic Principles of Hermes Trismegistus (Trice Greatest). The seven principles explain the nature of all reality in the most perfect, complete and concise statements.
The Seven Hermetic Principles and the Hermetic Philosophy are now contained in the Kybalion written by Three Initiates.
The Kybalion is the master key that unlocks all the doors of the Temple of Knowledge. It is the Light of Understanding that illuminates all the pathways of knowledge.
It is the highest Source Knowledge above all other source knowledge. It is the ultimate core of all cores. It contains The Principles of all principles.
THE SEVEN HERMETIC PRINCIPLES
The principles of truth are seven; the seven hermetic principles, upon which the entire Hermetic philosophy is based, are as follows:
1. The Principle of mentalism: “The All is mind, the Universe is mental.”
2. The Principle of correspondence: “As above, so below; as below, so above.”
3. The principle of vibration: “Nothing rests, everything moves; everything vibrates.”
4. The principal of polarity: “Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are all the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.”
5. The principle of rhythm: “Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”
6. The principle of cause and effect: “Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according to law; chance is but a name for law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the law.”
7. The principal of Gender: “Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principle; Gender manifests on all planes.”
There is no portion of the occult teachings possessed by the world which have been so closely guarded as the fragments of the Hermetic Teachings which have come down to us over the tens of centuries which have elapsed since the lifetime of its great founder, Hermes Trismegistus.
The term occult simply means hidden or concealed. The reason why it is hidden or not easily revealed is because it is the most powerful kind of knowledge in the universe. The lips of wisdom are closed except to the ears of understanding. A prudent man conceals knowledge. It is revealed only to those who are ready for such power.
The principles of the occult are usually hidden from view in plain sight. They are there for everyone to notice and realize in the workings of nature, life and the universe.
But most people having eyes yet unseeing and having ears yet unhearing. They perceive not, neither do they understand because they do not have clarity of discernment.
Secret Knowledge is the most powerful kind of knowledge. It is about knowing how things work and understanding what’s going on.
Knowledge is power. In order to rob the Children of Light of power, the Devil takes the most powerful knowledge of the universe and associates himself with it. He causes the Church to shun such knowledge as Satanic so that people will abstain from it. In doing so, he keeps the world in as much ignorance and powerlessness as possible.
The Bible says that the Angel of Light Lucifer was full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. But because of his belief that he can be God, he wanted to exalt his throne above the stars of God, upon the mount of the congregation, to the sides of the north and to become like the Most High. (Ezekiel 28:11-19) Therefore Jesus cast him out of heaven and he and a third of heaven’s angels who joined him made their dwelling place on the Earth.
Lucifer wants to make himself known as the God of the Universe, even higher than the God of Christianity. Because he was full of wisdom and perfect in beauty, he had complete knowledge of the workings of the entire universe and was the most powerful heavenly being. The name Lucifer means Bringing Light.
Lucifer uses universal knowledge in any of his work so as to present an abundance of truth and light to people. Universal knowledge is received by people from God through direct inspiration. But Lucifer’s great deception is organizing it in the most subtle and ingenious ways to lure mankind away from the true God of Christianity.
The Devil’s only real weapon is the weapon of Deceit. By deceiving good as evil and evil as good, he weakens his enemies minds towards opposing him. You are never too far away from error. It’s only a few degrees away from the truth. You are never too far away from the truth either. It is only a few degrees back.
Rat poison is 99 percent wheat and 1 percent poison. He that has ears to hear let him hear. The occult is in every area of human science, arts, religion, philosophy and business. There is no escape from it. Truth is mixed with error in every place. It is only stupidity to shun truth just because there is error. This is one of the main causes of ignorance. We are called to be a light in the darkness, for what good is there with light among light?
Only the truly wise see through such things and know how to discern without the perceptive filters imposed by other lesser minds. The opposite is true, those that see through will become wise. The Devil loses when we know the Truth. Clarity is victory, obscurity is defeat.
The Devil plays the game of mixing truth and error knowing that one out of four situations can happen. Three which are in his favor and only one in yours. Because it is the nature of the subconscious mind to make associations, he knows that the first two situations that could occur would be:
1. You would think that they are both true.
2. You would think that they are both false.
To exercise discernment which is an aspect of the conscious mind, is to differentiated between what’s real and what’s not. The next two situations that could occur would be:
3. You would believe the lie as the truth and the truth as the lie.
4. You would discern what is truly true and what is truly false.
The final option is the one where the Devil is outgamed. To be able to discern correctly requires true wisdom.
The time has come when Children of Light should become wise as serpents, by embracing the truths that were kept hidden away from them and use their God given powers to overcome the Forces of Darkness. Good will always overcome Evil on the mental plane.
The tendency of the universe is upwards and towards good. This is true only with the True Light in control (Jesus), but the reverse is true with the Other Light (Lucifer). All it takes is Awareness. You are unstoppable when you use ultimate power for righteous intention.
The Bible says that Lucifer abides not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a truth, he is merely using what belongs to Jesus. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own. For he is a liar and the father of lies. Lucifer is no longer really an Angel of Light but a Prince of Darkness.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Universal Knowledge is good because it is originally from God, although Lucifer has it too. The heart of the prudent gets knowledge. A man of knowledge increases power.
But believing in Jesus Christ as God and your savior from your sin through his death on the cross and resurrection on the third day is the key to eternal life. This is the true saving knowledge that Lucifer doesn’t want you to embrace. What good does it profit you to gain the whole world but lose your own soul?
