In ‘Universal Principles part 1′, I laid the foundation to a small portion of the hermetic wisdom,which consist of ‘Mentalism or Mental Transmutation’ (also described as Mental Alchemy, which refers to the art of changing and transforming one’s own mental states and conditions. The ‘Principle of Vibration’ states that motion is manifest in everything in the universe, nothing rests, and everything moves, vibrates, and circles. The ‘Principle of Polarity’ says that everything has its opposite and all truth is but half truths. The ‘Principle of Rhythm’ embodies the swing backward and forward and then we have,’ Cause & Effect’ or every effect has a spiritual seed that is nourished to sprout a specific effect and it explains that there is a cause for every action, and a spark for every cause. Lastly, ‘Gender’ which manifest in everything and on all planes. ‘Mental Gender’ described as a hermetic concept which relates to the masculine and feminine principles. It does not refer to the physical gender of someone; nor does it suggest that someone of a certain physical gender necessarily has the same mental gender. Ideally, one wants to have a balanced mental gender. The three hermetic religious and philosophical doctrines are ‘The Corpus Hermeticum’, ‘The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus’, and ‘The Perfect Sermon’ and a less known one is ‘Discourse of Isis to Horus’.
The study of these teachings have been encapsulated in the human being for centuries. These principles can be found in a little book that goes by the name of ‘The Kybalion’. A book written in 1908, claiming to be the essence of the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus, published anonymously by a group or person under the pseudonym of ‘The Three Initiates’. The Kybalion first published in 1908 by the Yogi Publication Society and is now in the public domain, and can be found on the web. The book purports to be based upon ancient Hermeticism. The book early on, making the claim that it makes its appearance in one’s life when the time is appropriate and includes variations of material found in the book of proverbs. Freemasonry is on the same tree of brotherhood and is just one custodian of this wisdom. These principles can be unveiled with each initiate at his and or her proper time of advancement. Do not be the one of many, that will put a cap on top of their evolution; as they cut off experiences of divine proportions because they have been told it isn’t possible to transmute base metal into gold.
