A journey into Alchemy, Consciousness and beyond...

Know Thyself - and thou shall know all the Mysteries of the Gods and of the Universe

Once awakened to how the illusion / or the reality works, via consciousness, it is then that we must begin to operate by the laws that govern all things. We can focus on the negative, the corrupt, the lies, and fight to change the injustices we feel or we can focus on the positive, take personal responsibility for our lives and choose to hold & manifest the mental image of abundance, love, truth, etc.

This does not mean we simply ignore the bad, on the contrary, it means we become pro active in creating the reality, the abundance, the life we choose to live.

The I AM within is that which brings forth all things into the outer world. If we are to doubt, to fear, to live emotionally manipulated then we must not be surprised when things do not go the way we think they should. Within is the source of all power, all truth, all that is.

To focus on those who seek to distract us, by fear, by emotional manipulation, by lies and deceit is to give away your personal power. STOP IT.

Hermetics

1. The Principle of Mentalism
The All is mind; the Universe is mental
This Principle embodies the truth that 'All is Mind.'
It explains that The All (which is the Substantial Reality underlying all the outward manifestations and appearances which we know under the terms of 'The Material Universe'; the 'Phenomena of Life', 'Matter', 'Energy', and, in short, all that is apparent to our material senses) is spirit which in itself is unknowable and undefinable, but which may be considered and thought of as an universal, infinite, living mind.

It also explains that all the phenomenal world or universe is simply a Mental Creation of The All, subject to the Laws of Created Things, and that the universe, as a whole, and in its parts or units, has its existence in the Mind of The All, in which Mind we 'live and move and have our being.'

This Principle, by establishing the Mental Nature of the Universe, easily explains all of the varied mental and psychic phenomena that occupy such a large portion of the public attention, and which, without such explanation, are non-understandable and defy scientific treatment.


2. The Principle of Correspondence
As Above, So Below, As Below, So Above
This Principle embodies the truth that there is always a Correspondence between the laws and phenomena of the various planes of Being and Life. The old Hermetic axiom ran in these words: 'As above, so below, as below, so above.' And the grasping of this Principle gives one the means of solving many a dark paradox, and hidden secret of Nature.

There are planes beyond our knowing, but when we apply the Principle of Correspondence to them we are able to understand much that would otherwise be unknowable to us. This Principle is of universal application and manifestation, on the various planes of the material, mental, and spiritual universe - it is an Universal Law.

The ancient Hermetists considered this Principle as one of the most important mental instruments by which man was able to pry aside the obstacles which hid from view the Unknown. Its use even tore aside the Veil of Isis to the extent that a glimpse of the face of the goddess might be caught. Just as a knowledge of the Principles of Geometry enables man to measure distant suns and their movements, while seated in his observatory, so a knowledge of the Principle of Correspondence enables Man to reason intelligently from the Known to the Unknown. Studying the monad, he understands the archangel.


3. The Principle of Vibration
Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates
This Principle embodies the truth that 'everything is in motion'; 'everything vibrates'; 'nothing is at rest'; facts which Modern Science endorses, and which each new scientific discovery tends to verify. And yet this Hermetic Principle was enunciated thousands of years ago, by the Masters of Ancient Egypt. This Principle explains that the differences between different manifestations of Matter, Energy, Mind, and even Spirit, result largely from varying rates of Vibration.

From The All, which is Pure Spirit, down to the grossest form of Matter, all is in vibration - the higher the vibration, the higher the position in the scale. The vibration of Spirit is at such an infinite rate of intensity and rapidity that it is practically at rest - just as a rapidly moving wheel seems to be motionless. And at the other end of the scale, there are gross forms of matter whose vibrations are so low as to seem at rest. Between these poles, there are millions upon millions of varying degrees of vibration. From corpuscle and electron, atom and molecule, to worlds and universes, everything is in vibratory motion.
This is also true on the planes of energy and force (which are but varying degrees of vibration); and also on the mental planes (whose states depend upon vibrations); and even on to the spiritual planes.


4. The Principle of Polarity
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.
This Principle embodies the truth that everything is dual, everything has two poles, everything has its pair of opposites, all of which were old Hermetic axioms.

It explains the old paradoxes, that have perplexed so many, which have been stated as follows: 'Thesis and antithesis are identical in nature, but different in degree'; 'opposites are the same, differing only in degree'; 'the pairs of opposites may be reconciled'; 'extremes meet'; 'everything is and isn't, at the same time'; 'all truths are but half-truths'; 'every truth is half-false'; 'there are two sides to everything,' etc., etc., etc.

It explains that in everything there are two poles, or opposite aspects, and that 'opposites' are really only the two extremes of the same thing, with many varying degrees between them. To illustrate: Heat and Cold, although 'opposites,' are really the same thing, the differences consisting merely of degrees of the same thing. Look at your thermometer and see if you can discover where 'heat' terminates and 'cold' begins! There is no such thing as 'absolute heat' or 'absolute cold' - the two terms 'heat' and 'cold' simply indicate varying degrees of the same thing, and that 'same thing' which manifests as 'heat' and 'cold' is merely a form, variety, and rate of Vibration. So 'heat' and 'cold' are simply the 'two poles' of that which we call 'Heat' - and the phenomena attendant thereupon are manifestations of the Principle of Polarity.

The same Principle manifests in the case of 'Light and Darkness,' which are the same thing, the difference consisting of varying degrees between the two poles of the phenomena. Where does 'darkness' leave off, and 'light' begin? What is the difference between 'Large and Small'? Between 'Hard and Soft'? Between 'Black and White'? Between 'Sharp and Dull'? Between 'Noise and Quiet'? Between 'High and Low'? Between 'Positive and Negative'?

The Principle of Polarity explains these paradoxes, and no other Principle can supersede it. The same Principle operates on the Mental Plane. Let us take a radical and extreme example - that of 'Love and Hate,' two mental states apparently totally different. And yet there are degrees of Hate and degrees of Love, and a middle point in which we use the terms 'Like or Dislike,' which shade into each other so gradually that sometimes we are at a loss to know whether we 'like' or 'dislike' or 'neither.' And all are simply degrees of the same thing, as you will see if you will but think a moment.

And, more than this (and considered of more importance by the Hermetists), it is possible to change the vibrations of Hate to the vibrations of Love, in one's own mind, and in the minds of others. Many of you, who read these lines, have had personal experiences of the involuntary rapid transition from Love to Hate, and the reverse, in your own case and that of others. And you will therefore realize the possibility of this being accomplished by the use of the Will, by means of the Hermetic formulas. 'Good and Evil' are but the poles of the same thing, and the Hermetist understands the art of transmuting Evil into Good, by means of an application of the Principle of Polarity.

In short, the 'Art of Polarization' becomes a phase of 'Mental Alchemy' known and practiced by the ancient and modern Hermetic Masters. An understanding of the Principle will enable one to change his own Polarity, as well as that of others, if he will devote the time and study necessary to master the art.


5. The Principle of Rythem
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
This Principle embodies the truth that in everything there is manifested a measured motion, to and fro; a flow and inflow; a swing backward and forward; a pendulum-like movement; a tide-like ebb and flow; a high-tide and low-tide; between the two poles which exist in accordance with the Principle of Polarity described a moment ago.

There is always an action and a reaction; an advance and a retreat; a rising and a sinking. This is in the affairs of the Universe, suns, worlds, men, animals, mind, energy, and matter. This law is manifest in the creation and destruction of worlds; in the rise and fall of nations; in the life of all things; and finally in the mental states of Man (and it is with this latter that the Hermetists find the understanding of the Principle most important).

The Hermetists have grasped this Principle, finding its universal application, and have also discovered certain means to overcome its effects in themselves by the use of the appropriate formulas and methods. They apply the Mental Law of Neutralization. They cannot annul the Principle, or cause it to cease its operation, but they have learned how to escape its effects upon themselves to a certain degree depending upon the Mastery of the Principle. They have learned how to use it, instead of being used by it.

In this and similar methods, consist the Art of the Hermetists. The Master of Hermetics polarizes himself at the point at which he desires to rest, and then neutralizes the Rhythmic swing of the pendulum which would tend to carry him to the other pole.
All individuals who have attained any degree of Self-Mastery do this to a certain degree, more or less unconsciously, but the Master does this consciously, and by the use of his Will, and attains a degree of Poise and Mental Firmness almost impossible of belief on the part of the masses who are swung backward and forward like a pendulum.
This Principle and that of Polarity have been closely studied by the Hermetists, and the methods of counteracting, neutralizing, and using them form an important part of the Hermetic Mental Alchemy.


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.
This Principle embodies the fact that there is a Cause for every Effect; an Effect from every Cause. It explains that: 'Everything Happens according to Law'; that nothing ever 'merely happens'; that there is no such thing as Chance; that while there are various planes of Cause and Effect, the higher dominating the lower planes, still nothing ever entirely escapes the Law.

The Hermetists understand the art and methods of rising above the ordinary plane of Cause and Effect, to a certain degree, and by mentally rising to a higher plane they become Causers instead of Effects. The masses of people are carried along, obedient to environment; the wills and desires of others stronger than themselves; heredity; suggestion; and other outward causes moving them about like pawns on the Chessboard of Life.

But the Masters, rising to the plane above, dominate their moods, characters, qualities, and powers, as well as the environment surrounding them, and become Movers instead of pawns. They help to play the game of life, instead of being played and moved about by other wills and environment. They use the Principle instead of being its tools. The Masters obey the Causation of the higher planes, but they help to rule on their own plane. In this statement there is condensed a wealth of Hermetic knowledge - let him read who can.


7. The Principle of Gender
Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.
This Principle embodies the truth that there is gender manifested in everything - the Masculine and Feminine Principles ever at work. This is true not only of the Physical Plane, but of the Mental and even the Spiritual Planes.

On the Physical Plane, the Principle manifests as 'sex', on the higher planes it takes higher forms, but the Principle is ever the same. No creation, physical, mental or spiritual, is possible without this Principle. An understanding of its laws will throw light on many a subject that has perplexed the minds of men. The Principle of Gender works ever in the direction of generation, regeneration, and creation. Everything, and every person, contains the two Elements or Principles, or this great Principle, within it, him or her. Every Male thing has the Female Element also; every Female contains also the Male Principle.

If you would understand the philosophy of Mental and Spiritual Creation, Generation, and Re-generation, you must understand and study this Hermetic Principle. It contains the solution of many mysteries of Life. We caution you that this Principle has no reference to the many base, pernicious and degrading lustful theories, teachings and practices, which are taught under fanciful titles, and which are a prostitution of the great natural principle of Gender. Such base revivals of the ancient infamous forms of Phallicism tend to ruin mind, body and soul, and the Hermetic Philosophy has ever sounded the warning note against these degraded teachings which tend toward lust, licentiousness, and perversion of Nature's principles. If you seek such teachings, you must go elsewhere for them - Hermeticism contains nothing for you along these lines. To the pure, all things are pure; to the base, all things are base.

After a 2 hour conversation with a friend in Vegas on Hermetics, Consciousness, Politics and Business it is refreshing to talk to like minded people who GET IT.

We can bitch and moan about how corrupt the world is, and so forth but to truly change it takes innovation, thought, not "outside the box" but completely shattering the box. This matrix we find ourselves in is just that and we can choose to be slaves or to think for ourselves. We can choose to take control 110% of our destiny or let it be decided for us.

There is no "saving" or "changing" the current toxic corrupt system. It is beyond that point, those who refuse to see the coming collapse, or better yet, the Paradigm Shift remain willfully ignorant, choose to deny the signs all around them. But as long as we must play by the rules of the current illusion then play we must... and play by the rules of integrity, honesty and innovation we will, laying waste to greed and so forth. Cause and effect, Karma, Sow and Reap, whatever you want to call it...

Here is the opening from my short book / treatsie on the topics above.. from earlier in 2009- by far the best piece I have put up to date

I consciously choose to think for myself, to practice personal responsibility, to control my own destiny instead of having it decided for me. I AM the force behind my own life, behind my decisions. I choose to shatter the status quo, to create my own reality, to respect my fellow human beings, to become who I AM meant to be.

I AM not a slave, I AM free, ONE. I choose beauty, compassion, love, truth, Liberty above all else. I choose to live my life by true virtues and to use my intuition and common sense. I choose to rise above the land of make believe, to not be just one of the Herd. I choose to dream, to be, to live unbound by the chains that want to keep me confined and conformed to illusions. I simply AM and will always be, pure thought, creativity...

Where do we go from here?


It pains me to say it, but the "Patriot" or Liberty Movement in this country is not making much progress. This is not to say that many millions have not woken up, or partially awakened the last 2 years, but the mainstream branches of the so called movement, i.e. The Tea Party (of which I was a part of early on) and the 9/12 project and others are completely controlled, owned, hijacked...

Early on before the days of protests and events began you could see it happening, taking form. Glenn Beck shed a few tears over on Fox news, Newt and others in the GOP and on the "Right" began interjecting themselves into the movement, claiming the spot light and manipulating the emotions and anger toward Government, Corruption and Taxation for personal gain, while they rallied millions of Republicans, Conservatives and some on the fence into a new movement, all the while acting like it was Obama himself who was responsible for the problems in this country, using the left vs right (divide and conquer) tactics to new levels of effectiveness. While those on the left spun and mocked it. Playing the usual hand.

Those of us who have been doing this for years, no matter who is Puppet in Chief (R or D) know what I am talking about.

Meanwhile the so called movements on the left began to disappear when Bush left office, the Anti War movement suddenly, for the majority became silent. Those against the Patriot Act and other corrupt practices began to fall in line with the status quo since the new Puppet in town was in charge, even though he is continuing and even expanding the programs his voters were so against under the last Puppet... OH The Irony

There is no need to go in depth on this all, since those who truly are awakened fully grasp what is happening.

Those who are half awake had better learn to see through the illusions keeping them from understanding what is truly being done. Stop blaming the Puppet tasked with be the public face like he actually does anything of importance. He is merely a figure head, doing exactly has he is told by those who run the show.

And for those who are still living fully in the land of make believe, those who still are caught up in the left vs right illusion of choice, believing the Government, Bankers, "Experts" and Main stream Media moguls are telling them the truth, well there isnt much to say to you...

By now you either get it, or you dont. And if you are not pissed off, you are not paying attention or thinking for yourself.

So where do we go from here...?

Prepare for the coming storm, and do it fast. Food, water, ammo, get your house in order, physically, mentally, spiritually.

20 years from now NO ONE will be able to say they didnt see it coming
