7 Cosmic Principles of Hermes Trismegistos

04 Feb 2009 on learning

i came across this another spiritual principles from ancient times... and this article summarises it beautifully.

  1. The Principle of Mentalism (MIND)  “THE ALL IS MIND; The Universe is Mental.”
  2. The Principle of Cause and Effect (KARMA) “Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happensaccording to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there aremany planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.”
  3. The Principle of Correspondence (ANALOGY) “As above, so below; as below, so above.”
  4. 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.”
  5. The Principle of Gender “Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.”
  6. The Principle of Vibration “Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.” 
  7. The Principle of Polarity (DUALITY) “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.”
