NATURAL LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE / SEVEN HERMETIC PRINCIPLES

(a comparison)

“The Lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of Understanding.”

THE NATURAL LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE

1. The Law of PERPETUAL TRANSMUTATION.

Energy moves into physical form.

2. The Law of RELATIVITY.

Nothing is good or bad, fast or slow, big or small…until you relate it to something.

3. The law of VIBRATION AND ATTRACTION.

Everything in the Universe vibrates…nothing rests. The great secret of Life.

4. The Law of POLARITY.

Everything has an opposite: Good – Bad … Hot – Cold … Up – Down.

5. The Law of RHYTHM.

There is always a Reaction to every Action. Everything moves To and Fro, In and Out, Back and Forward, Good times and Bad times.

6. The Law of CAUSE AND EFFECT.

(Emerson claimed this to be the “Law of Laws“)

Action and Re-action are equal and opposite. Every cause has its effect; every effect, its cause.

There is no such thing as chance. Whatever you send into the Universe comes back.

Positive out, positive back. Negative out, negative back.

7. The Law of GENDER.

Manifest in all things as masculine and feminine. The law that governs creation.

– Natural Laws/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 SEVEN HERMETIC PRINCIPLES (occult philosophy)

  I. The Principle of MENTALISM. (the “All in All”)

THE ALL is MIND; The Universe is Mental.

 II. The Principle of CORRESPONDENCE. (the “Planes of Correspondence“)

As above, so below; as below, so above.

III. The Principle of VIBRATION.

Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.

IV. The Principle of POLARITY.

Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites.

 V. The Principle of RHYTHM.

Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall.

VI. The Principle of CAUSE AND EFFECT.

Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law.

VII. The Principle of GENDER.

Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principles; gender manifests on all planes.

“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 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

“The only thing you can attract to you are those things that are in harmonious vibration with you.”

Bob Proctor

EART-H……H-EART

Less than a thousand years ago, the Church still taught that our world was at the center of the universe. Today, we know that this is not the case, and yet there is something true in that old line of thought. To be frank, it’s not that the earth is the heart of creation – it’s that the heart of creation is here on earth. It’s in the name, it’s always in the name, but not until the First and the Last reveals Himself, that is when the Last once again becomes First shall we see.

EART-H…….H-EART.

Alas, our dilemma it seems will have no solution until the great wrong is made right.

The spiritual war of the eternal return is cosmic in nature as well as within each and every one of us. A battle for our very heart and soul and also for the future of this world. The ‘slaves of Atlantis’ have every intention of destroying this earth, but it need not be so. There is an alternative for those who do not quit. The Creative Spirit, which is the Heroic Spirit, shall prevail, in truth, He already has won. We are only unaware of this because we must still earn our place beyond the spiritual catastrophe.

Our hope is that in this little work that covers 20,000 years we may shed a little light on the dark dilemma that most of us intuitively feel as long back as we can remember. Many succumb and just plain give up because it seems so much easier, but then there are those who do not. The great souls that please God are those who never give up even though they believe that there is no chance of winning. They continue to struggle only because they feel it the right thing to do and it is to them that the hope written of in this work is given.

So, the question is what are we going to do about it? Is one content with being a blind slave looking for the next distraction or an awakening Hero of God? Only our actions in time will tell.

TRUTH, HONOUR & INTEGRITY SHOW 6/10/21

Here’s to another informative podcast from Thomas Williams with this week’s episode of the Truth, Honour, and Integrity Show. There’s some interesting info about Nikola Tesla in this one, which is always a treat. I also really enjoyed his talk of love, relationships, and vibration.

The Main Teachings of New Thought

The following, expressed in many different forms, according to the views of the respective teachers, are the fundamental principles of The New Thought.

1. There is a Supreme Power back of, underlying, and in all things. It is Infinite, Illimitable, Eternal, and Unchangeable. It Is, has always been, and always will be. It is Omnipresent (present everywhere); Omnipotent (all-powerful, possessing all the power that is); and Omniscient (all-knowing, all-seeing, knowing everything, seeing everything). This Supreme Power – Universal Presence – All Mind – may be called MIND, SPIRIT, LAW, THE ABSOLUTE, FIRST CAUSE, NATURE, UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLE, LIFE, or whatever name best suits the taste of the person using the term but call it what you will you mean this Supreme Power – the Centre. GOD is this great Universal Presence, and not the conception of a limited God held by any man. GOD must be illimitable, and all of the Universal must be an emanation of him.

2. Humanity is unfolding in consciousness, and many have now reached that stage of spiritual consciousness whereby they become conscious of the existence and immanence of God, and thus know rather than entertain a belief based upon the authority, real or assumed, of other men. This God-consciousness to which humanity is rapidly tending is the result of our unfoldment, development, and evolution for ages, and, when fully possessed by us, will completely revolutionize our present conceptions of life, our ethics, customs, conditions, and economics.

3. GOD is not a being afar off from us, full of wrath and punishment, but he is right here with us; all around us; even in us; understanding us from the beginning; realizing our limitations; full of love; and patiently seeing the gradual growth and unfoldment which brings us into a clearer understanding of him.

4. As to the reason of GODS plan and laws, The New Thought does not pretend to have the knowledge, holding that this cannot be known by Man in his present stage of development, although by reason and intuition he is beginning to understand that all is Good, and to see evidence of a loving, good, perfect, just and wise plan, in all the experiences of life. And having that Intelligent Faith which comes of the God-consciousness, it rests content, saying “GOD IS – and all is well.”

5. All is One –  all the Universe, high and low, developed and undeveloped, manifest and unmanifest, is One- all is an emanation of GOD. Everything in the universe is in touch with every other thing, and all is in connection with the Centre – GOD. Every atom is a part of a mighty whole, and nothing can happen to any atom without a corresponding effect upon every other part of the whole. The sense of separateness is an illusion of the undeveloped consciousness, but an illusion necessary in certain stages for the working out of the plan. When we have so far progressed in spiritual growth and unfoldment that certain heretofore dormant faculties awaken to consciousness, or rather when our consciousness has so far developed that it takes cognizance of certain faculties the existence of which has heretofore been unknown to us, we become conscious of the Oneness of All, and our relation to all that is. It is not merely a matter of intellectual conception, it is the growth of a new consciousness. The person who passes this simply knows; the person who has it not deems the idea allied to insanity. This Cosmic Knowing comes to many as an illumination; to others, it is a matter of gradual and slow development.

6. We are Spiritual beings; our Soul is Immortal New Thought teachers differ in their theories as to just how and where he will live in the future. However, when we obtain that wonderful assurance of immortality from our awakened spiritual faculties, we see no need of worrying about the “how” and “where”. We know that we are and will be. We have within us such an abiding sense of existence, and deathlessness, that all of humanity’s speculations seem like idle theories to us- useful in their place, of course, but of no vital importance to us. We know there are limits to the possible manifestations of life – we know that “infinity plus infinity” would not begin to express the possibilities before us, and we fret not. We learn to live in the NOW, for we know that we are in Eternity right now, just as much as we ever will be, and we proceed to Live. We are concerned with Life, not with Death, and we Live. We have confidence in GOD and in the Divine Plan and are content. We know that if our entire solar system, and every other system the suns of which are visible to us, were dissolved into their original elements, we would still exist, and would be still in the Universe. We know that the Universes large, and that we are a part of it – that we cannot be left out or banished from the Universe – that we are important atoms, and that our destruction would disarrange and destroy the whole. We know that while the Universe lasts – we last. That if we are destroyed the Universe is destroyed. We know that GOD had use for us or we would not be here, and we know that God makes no mistakes –  changes not his mind – and destroys no soul that he has expressed. We say: we are Sons of GOD; what we shall be doth not yet appear; but come what will we are still Sons of GOD; what our future may be, concerns us not – it is not our business – we will place our hands in that of the Father and say, “Lead Thou us on”.

7. Since we are immortal, Life can be seen only as being on an ascending scale, rising from lower to higher, and then on to higher and higher and higher. In the Universe there are beings much lower than us in the spiritual scale, and there are others much more advanced, much more highly developed than us, and we are progressing along a Path until someday we will be where they are; and others now much lower will someday be where we are now and so on.

8. There is a spiritual evolution going on in Humanity – we are growing, developing, and unfolding in spiritual attainment. Our minds are developing and causing us to unfold new faculties which will lead us to higher paths of attainment. The Higher Reason is beginning to make itself manifest. Humanity is nearing the plane of Cosmic Knowing.

9. “Thoughts are things” – every thought we think goes forth, carrying with it force which affects others to a greater or less extent, depending upon the forces behind our thought, and the mental attitude of the other persons. Like attracts like in the world of thought – we attract to ourselves thoughts in harmony with our own – people in harmony with our thoughts – even things are influenced by thought in varying degrees.

10. “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he,” and we may change, and often do change, our entire character, and nature by a change of thoughts, an adjustment of mental attitude. Fear thought and Worry and all the rest of the foulbrood of negative thoughts attract thoughts, people, things, from the outside, and pull us down to the level of our thought-pictures. On the contrary, we may, by right thinking, raise ourselves from the mire, and surround ourselves with people and things corresponding to our thoughts. Thoughts take form in action.

11. The Mind is positive to the Body, and we may become sick or well-diseased or free from disease, according to our thoughts and mental attitude.

12.The Mind contains latent forces, lying dormant, awaiting the day of their unfoldment, which may be developed and trained and used in a wondrous way. We are in our infancy regarding the proper use of his mental powers.

This is only a little bit of the Truth. Every other man or woman has his or her bit, so that this portion is merely as a grain of sand on the seashore.

The Science of Being Well

The basic truths of the Science of Being Well

There is a Thinking Substance from which all things are made and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe. It is the life of All.

The thought of a form in this Substance causes the form; the thought of a motion produces the motion. In relation to humanity, the thoughts of this Substance are always of perfect functioning and perfect health.

A person is a thinking center, capable of original thought; and his thought has power over his own functioning. By thinking imperfect thoughts, he has caused imperfect and perverted functioning; and by performing the voluntary functions of life in a perverted manner, he has assisted in causing disease.    

If a person will think only thoughts of perfect health, all the Power of Life will be exerted to assist him. But this healthy functioning will not continue unless a person performs the external, or voluntary, functions of living in a healthy manner.

A Summary of The Science of Being Well

Health is perfectly natural functioning, normal living. There is a Principle of Life in the universe; it is the Living Substance, from which all things are made. This Living Substance permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe. In its invisible state, it is in and through all forms, and yet all forms are made of it.

To illustrate: Suppose that a very fine and highly diffusible aqueous vapor should permeate and penetrate a block of ice. The ice is formed from living water and is living water in form, while the vapor is also living water, unformed, permeating a form made from itself. This illustration will explain how Living Substance permeates all forms made from it. All life comes from It. It is all the life there is.

The Universal Substance is a thinking substance and takes the form of its thought. The thought of a form, held by it, creates the form; and the thought of a motion causes the motion. It cannot help thinking, and so is forever creating. And it must move on toward a fuller and more complete expression of itself. This means toward more complete life and more perfect functioning – and that means toward perfect health. The power of the living substance must always be exerted toward perfect health. It is a force in all things making for perfect functioning.

All things are permeated by a power that makes for health. A human being can relate himself to this power and ally himself with it. He can also separate himself from it in his thoughts.

A human being is a form of this Living Substance and has within him a Principle of Health. This Principle of Health, when in full constructive activity, causes all the involuntary functions of the human body to be perfectly performed.

A human being is a thinking substance, permeating a visible body, and the processes of his body are controlled by his thought.

When a person thinks only thoughts of perfect health, the internal processes of his body will be those of perfect health. A person’s first step toward perfect health must be to form a conception of himself perfectly healthy and as doing all things in the way and manner of a perfectly healthy person. Having formed this conception, he must relate himself to it in all his thoughts and sever all thought relations with disease and weakness. If he does this and thinks his thoughts of health with positive FAITH, a person will cause the Principle of Health within him to become constructively active and to heal all his diseases. He can receive additional power from the universal Principle of Life by faith, and he can acquire faith by looking to this Principal of Life with reverent gratitude for the health it gives him. If a person will consciously accept the health which is being continually given to him by the Living Substance, and if will be duly grateful for it, he will develop faith.

A person cannot think only thoughts of perfect health unless he performs the voluntary functions of life in a perfectly healthy manner. These voluntary functions are eating, drinking, breathing, and sleeping. If a person thinks only thoughts of health, has faith in health, and eats, drinks, breathes, and sleeps in a perfectly healthy way, he must have perfect health.

Health is the result of thinking and acting in a Certain Way, and if a sick person begins to think and act in this Way, the Principle of Health within him will come into constructive activity and heal all his diseases. This Principle of Health is the same in all and is related to the Life Principle of the universe. It is able to heal every disease and will come into activity whenever a person thinks and acts in accordance with the Science of Being Well. Therefore, every person can attain perfect health.

On Competitions

The contest lasts for moments

Though the training’s taken years


It wasn’t the winning alone that

Was worth the work and the tears


The applause will be forgotten

The prize will be misplaced

But the long hard hours of practice

Will never be a waste


For in trying to win

You build a skill

You learn that winning

Depends on will


You never grow by how much you win

You only grow by how much you put in

So, any new challenge

You’ve just begun

Put forth your best

And you’ve already won
