Seven Principles of the Kybalion
- Mentalism: All is Mind
- We are of One Whole and All is possible
- Correspondence: As Above So Below
- There is correspondence between the laws of phenomena of the various “planes” of being and life.
- There is harmony, agreement and correspondence between the Physical, Mental and Spiritual Planes.
- Vibration: Everything is Vibrating
- Motion is manifest in everything in the Universe, that nothing rests, and everything moves, vibrates, and circles.
- You can change vibration through Intent, Will and Focus.
- Polarity: Everything is Dual, Everything has Two Extremes, and Everything has an Opposite.
- All manifested things have two sides, two aspects, or two poles.
- Everything “is” and “isn’t” at the same time, all truths are but half truths and every truth is half false, there are two sides to everything, opposites are identical in nature, yet different in degree, extremes meet, and all paradoxes may be reconciled.
- Rhythm: Everything has Rhythm
- Everything there is manifested a measured motion, a to and fro, a flow and inflow, a swing backward and forward, a pendulum-like movement.
- There is rhythm between every pair of opposites, or poles, and is closely related to the Principle of Polarity.
- Cause and Effect: Nothing is by Chance and Everything is subject to the Law of Compensation
- There is a cause for every effect, and an effect for every cause.
- There is no such thing as chance, that chance is merely a term indicating that the causes not recognized or perceived possibly because of the complexity of the contributing variables.
- Gender: Positive-Negative, Masculine-Feminine
- Gender aspect is necessary for generating, creating or manifestation and manifests itself on all planes.
- Mastering or balancing of gender polarities within manifests as creative energies, balance and harmony.
“The possession of Knowledge, unless accompanied by a manifestation and expression in Action, is like the hoarding of precious metals–a vain and foolish thing. Knowledge, like Wealth, is intended for Use. The Law of Use is Universal, and he who violates it suffers by reason of his conflict with natural forces.“ –The Kybalion
“To change your mood or mental state–change your vibration.” –The Kybalion
“To destroy an undesirable rate of mental vibration, put into operation the Principle of Polarity and concentrate upon tile opposite pole to that which you desire to suppress. Kill out the undesirable by changing its polarity.” –The Kybalion
“Mind (as well as metals and elements) may be transmuted from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition; pole to pole; vibration to vibration.”–The Kybalion“Rhythm may be neutralized by an application of the Art of Polarization.” –The Kybalion
“Nothing escapes the Principle of Cause and Effect, but there are many Planes of Causation, and one may use the laws of the higher to overcome the laws of the lower.“ –The Kybalion
“The wise ones serve on the higher, but rule on the lower. They obey the laws coming from above them, but en their own plane, and those below them, they rule and give orders. And, yet, in so doing, they form a part of the Principle, instead of opposing it. The wise man falls in with the Law, and by understanding its movements he operates it instead of being its blind slave. Just as does the skilled swimmer turn this way and that way, going and coming as he will, instead of being as the log which is carried here and there–so is the wise man as compared to the ordinary man–and yet both swimmer and log; wise man and fool, are subject to Law. He who understands this is well on the road to Mastery.“ –The Kybalion
“True Hermetic Transmutation is a Mental Art.” –The Kybalion
“THE ALL is MIND; The Universe is Mental.” –The Kybalion.
“THE LIPS OF WISDOM ARE CLOSED, EXCEPT TO THE EARS OF UNDERSTANDING”
HERMES TRISMEGISTUS KNOWN BY THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AS “THE GREAT GREAT” AND “MASTER OF MASTERS”
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 “scribe of the gods,” who dwelt in old Egypt in the days when the present race of men was in its infancy.
THE HERMETIC PHILOSOPHY.
“The lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of Understanding.” –The Kybalion
“Where fall the footsteps of the Master, the ears of those ready for his Teaching open wide.” –The Kybalion
“When the ears of the student are ready to hear, then cometh the lips to fill them with Wisdom.” –The Kybalion
THE SEVEN HERMETIC PRINCIPLES.
“The Principles of Truth are Seven; he who knows these, understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose touch all the Doors of the Temple fly open.” –The Kybalion
“THE ALL is MIND; The Universe is Mental.” –The Kybalion
“As above, so below; as below, so above.” –The Kybalion
“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.” –The Kybalion
“Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half‐truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.” –The Kybalion
“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.” –The Kybalion
“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.” –The Kybalion
“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.” –The Kybalion
“Mind (as well as metals and elements) may be transmuted, from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition; pole to pole; vibration to vibration. True Hermetic Transmutation is a Mental Art.” –The Kybalion
“The Universe is Mental” –The Kybalion
“Under, and back of, the Universe of Time, Space and Change, is ever to be found The Substantial Reality–the Fundamental Truth.” –The Kybalion
“THAT which is the Fundamental Truth–the Substantial Reality–is beyond true naming, but the Wise Men call it THE ALL. “ –The Kybalion
“In its Essence, THE ALL is UNKNOWABLE.”–The Kybalion
“But, the report of Reason must be hospitably received, and treated with respect.” –The Kybalion
THE MENTAL UNIVERSE.
“The Universe is Mental–held in the Mind of THE ALL.” –The Kybalion
“THE ALL creates in its Infinite Mind countless Universes, which exist for aeons of Time–and yet, to THE ALL, the creation, development, decline and death of a million Universes is as the time of the twinkling of an eye.” –The Kybalion
“The Infinite Mind ‐of THE ALL is the womb of Universes.” –The Kybalion
“Within the Father‐Mother Mind, mortal children are at home.” –The Kybalion
“There is not one who is Fatherless, nor Motherless in the Universe” –The Kybalion
THE DIVINE PARADOX.
“The half‐wise, recognizing the comparative unreality of the Universe, imagine that they may defy its Laws–such are vain and presumptuous fools, and they are broken against the rocks and torn asunder by the elements by reason of their folly. The truly wise, knowing the nature of the Universe, use Law against laws; the higher against the lower; and by the Art of Alchemy transmute that which is undesirable into that which is worthy, and thus triumph. Mastery consists not in abnormal dreams, visions and fantastic imaginings or living, but in using the higher forces against the lower–escaping the pains of the lower planes by vibrating on the higher. Transmutation, not presumptuous denial, is the weapon of the Master.” –The Kybalion
“THE ALL” IN ALL.
“While All is in THE ALL, it is equally true that THE ALL is in All. To him who truly understands this truth hath come great knowledge.” –The Kybalion
THE PLANES OF CORRESPONDENCE.
“As above, so below; as below, so above” –The Kybalion
“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.” –The Kybalion
“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half‐truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.“ –The Kybalion
“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.” –The Kybalion
“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.” –The Kybalion
“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on planes.” –The Kybalion
