The Decentralized Self-Conscious Community Our goal is to create one of the biggest decentralized places of self-conscious and self-realized individuals. People ready to support others on their path.

Decentralized means that we don't focus on any particular religion or philosophy. We also don't follow any particular teacher. We are open minded, always seeking the truth through deep research, open dialogue and contemplation. We all thrive to become powerful and independent seekers of the truth.

MySpiritWay Forum is also an inseparable part of the “Become Your Own Guru" online course, but you can use all the functionalities of forum without purchasing it.

Feel free to browse this space and create whatever is best in your heart. All for the sake of self-improvement.-

Kybalion - Hermetic Philosophy
#1
SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS '
There is a saying that this book will find you once you are ready...
One of the deepest books you can possibly find Wink  Still trying to find a practical appliance of this knowledge in my life, so it won't be just another spiritual book. (maybe you will share its practical appliance under this thread?) However, it's great to expand your consciousness about existence... I believe we all should thrive to understand a variety of different philosophies and religions, therefore we are able to grow beyond ignorance.

I encourage you instead of reading 10 "easy" books go for one "difficult". Why do you think this approach is right? What are the pros? What are the cons?


Quote:A central concept in the book is that there are "seven Hermetic principles, upon which the entire Hermetic philosophy is based".[3] These are, as literally quoted from the book:
1. The principle of mentalism
Quote:"The All is Mind; the Universe is Mental."[4]
2. The principle of correspondence
Quote:"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.[5]
3. The principle of vibration
Quote:"Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates."[6]
4. The principle of polarity
Quote:"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."[7]
5. The principle of rhythm
Quote:"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."[8]
6. The principle of cause and effect
Quote:"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."[9]
7. The principle of gender
Quote:"Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principles; gender manifests on all planes."[10]
According to Mitch Horowitz, the philosophical mentalism (the primacy of mind as the active cause of things) described by the Kybalion's first principle was inspired by broadly similar notions in the ancient Greek Hermetica.
