Introduction and Library

Hermeticism or the Western Hermetic Tradition is a set of philosophical and religious beliefs or gnosis based primarily upon the Hellenistic Egyptian pseudepigraphical writings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus who is the representation of the conflation of the Egyptian god Thoth with the Greek Hermes.

These beliefs have heavily influenced the Western Esoteric Tradition and were considered to be of great importance during the Renaissance.

This teaching tends to strike at the root of man, at the root of all human endeavours and attendant achievements.It should therefore be basic, though there are allied teachings by different names and modes of communications.

I apologize for the following Parts of my interpretation of the Kyballion. I added them into 'Comments" instead of "Discussion". Then the text got cut off each time. Stupid is the word. Please forgive. Now part 4 is on top and then down the count. If you are interested start at 1 below and read upwards. Oh well maybe reversal is more correct for our purpose.

Kyballion Part 4 Else  you might be manifesting a big mistake! Personal Pride is still the main error off the Path - off the mark. It is called Sin. By definition: SIN is “off the mark of truth!” So do be careful and determine which “self” is PRODUCING MENTAL TRANSMUTATION  VIA VIBRATORY PROJECTION.

*Remember if you don’t know what to do - FORGIVENESS is the giving up and over to the Universe that which you can not absolutely handle intelligently (Intuit on the mark.)


Think  this as absolute:
I AM DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE.

Insight this as right:
I GIVE MYSELF INTO HIS ALMIGHTY HANDS TO DO THROUGH AND FOR ME, WHAT IS BEST FOR ALL AND EVERYONE.     
HERMETIC PHILOSOPHY: “IF THAT WHICH THOU SEEKEST, THOU FINDEST NOT WITHIN THYSELF, THOU WILT NEVER FIND IT WITHOUT THEE.  O MAN, KNOW THYSELF, IN THEE IS HID THE TREASURE OF TREASURES!”

The Secret Of All The Ages. Clearly laid out. YOU are the key to all Knowledge, Wisdom and Power that ever was, will be or is here now! YOU are the Mystery that all have searched for blind to their own identity. Nothing is outside of yourself. The core of the World and all Universes is at the core of your own being. Yes, you have to find yourself. Your SELF. THAT IS THE ONE TRUE SELF OF ALL. No, it doesn’t just happen although it could. Yes, it takes time, election, striving, processing...Grace. Yes, you must speed up your vibratory  beingness..  Take courage and put it into living and becoming more. Go into the unknown, do the impossible or become the person on the other side of the tunnel who can magically do that suddenly. The person who  strived and tried.

So-called Heaven is not above. It is within at the core of your being. It is a doing, a processing toward PERFECTION which is the State Of Being before Creation. The ultimate - toward the State Of Being before any separation out of the ONE . That is  before theFirst Garden of Eden  which is before “skins” (form went on Man), before TheTree Of Life; for it is before form or idea of form would take place. No separation, None! Therefore GOD IN THE HIGHEST,UNTOUCHABLE,UNCHANGEABLE, ALL-NO -THING, ALL POWER, ALL PRESENCE, ALL KNOWING, WISDOM, DYNAMIC EQUILIBRATION, INCORRUPTIBLE, IMMORTAL, DIVINE...in YOU!  In YOU  at CORE!!!

How to get in to this treasure?  The hardest thing that man can try to do, it seems, is to sit down and actually investigate his/her self. To search interiorly in order  to know him/herself. All it takes is the will to sit down and begin the recollection of ones life and times and experiences. Then to meditatively bring the lessons of lifes particularities (and  perhaps their meanings within “purpose”) to Universal Principle. This will take the force that’s draining  out of you and put it right back into the core of your strength (getting whole within). Think of “meditation” as  true communion, knowledge of and conversation with THE HOLY GUARDIAN ANGEL.

That’s applied to you as a person, as a human...What you desire to become is your SELF in potential. This is the way. The way to make a beginning into The Secret  of your True Identity within. KNOW THYSELF. That is The Gift that you can bestow upon your SELF.
MEDITATION IN A QUIET PLACE. THE VOICE OF THE SILENCE - YOUR OWN HIGHER SELF IN COMMUNION WITH YOU. BECOMING  AND RISING ON THE PLANES OF CONSCIOUSNESS. ( THE TREE OF LIFE.) THIS IS A CONSCIOUS ELECTION...”I AM WILLING TO RECEIVE. I AM WILLING TO PROJECT, I AM WILLING TO BE AS I AM.’ (*VERO)

Thus can one raise the vibratory rate. Thus does one ascend to greater heights. Thus, must be remembered that “heights”  are within at the Core of the matter (You.) Until there is no matter but more - much more!
 
*Can you find that COMPREHENSIBLE? THEN YOU HAVE BEGUN...*

Part 3.Vibration

You are the Temple, the Laboratory, the Servant, the Neophyte, the Adept becoming Master ...You are those designations, those things are you...all is in the Mind Of God and God is in you. And all at once. There is time, place and cause. There is ultimately no time, place or cause and it is all right!  Wherever you are, keep the transcendental cause  in mind. Go one step at a time. Don’t be put off by set backs or perceived failure. Go forth  one step at a time into the unknown doing what you meditate out as RIGHT . You will never give up. You may return if perchance you think you do. With the GRACE OF GOD (by any name) you will arrive and BECOME YOUR TRUE SELF!   
    ***Note***    The higher you go, the greater the length of your shadow which will try to pull you down. Hard as it can seem, this exercise would be to strengthen you if you are weak in any areas to be tested  along  this Path of Return. Ultimately, all being one in reunion, the Shadow  is blended to middle column where that Great Force becomes available for your purpose. This side of your own nature must benefit from your endeavors to rise on the  planes.            
Transmutation/Salvation/Ascension/Return/   Union/ Ultimate Consciousness...all rewards of your successful journey.  No separation  means that  all must be inclusive but Mildness is the other name for  the Mercury Middle Pillar. ONENESS IS ALL INCLUSIVE  AND NO CONCEPTS CAN EVER BE THE SAME IN THIS STATE OF BEINGNESS.
*Sort of like the Fallen Angel being allowed to return to the Hand of God.

Meditation is a communion with the “spiritual power within your soul.”
Meditation develops spiritual awareness. It takes time, willing effort and can and should be done without any stressful exertion. The rewards are great, life is improved, the quality of who you are is remarkable. Yes, you must elect, become aware of your mission of the self for the Self of all. Yes you must attenuate and strive to go this Pathway. Yes, you must change to become fully alive and know it. Yes, there is always more to go and yes, when you get there everything which now matters won’t!  Still there is an imperative in the blood and once you have this imperative you go for it or somehow despair and depression take over. Gloom? The reason? Once you start to reach for this rainbow over the horizon, you know too much to stop. Too much to be joyful without the great richness of THE QUEST.


VIBRATION  -   MENTALISM  - THOUGHTFULNESS

“...we have within ourselves, the power and the material to transmute into whatsoever may be desired, if we attain the spiritual sight that reveals it.”

    Trust the Universe to know what you require in order to come along the pathway to process “self” into “SELF!” When one becomes truly Wise,  integrated Wisdom flows from you into the Universe causing RIGHT materializations when and if they are truly Universally desirable.
   
As you will be walking in balance through centered years of Wisdom, the communion  that you walk in takes care of the details.

Just as in healing, it is fine to visualize what is to be healed and know the body physical but just the focus on the pain or disease along with a “suggestion” of what is to be healed will do. The CORPOREAL INTELLIGENCE OF THE BODY certainly knows more just what is needed and what to do.



We are Magical. The Universe is trustworthy and will support you in your strivings. Trust is the key word. Faith the passport over the threshold.

You may make a magical plan for the Purpose of improvement in this world. However,
Spiritual Sight is necessary to make decisions (take actions or non-actions) before anything else..

Else  you might be manifesting a big mistake! Personal Pride is still the main error off the Path - off the mark. It is called Sin. By definition: SIN is “off the mark of truth!” So do

VIBRATION  - IT’S MEANING  TO YOUR LIFE         
    Heavy metal, slowed down to creeping, sprawling, crawling...
Light as Air uplifted I fly above the mountain tops...
No match to recognize except that both are me, myself in lowest order and fullest                                                                                             potential.
Well, not ultimate potential for surely you can keen that there is more beyond the known.

    Beyond the wild blue yonder there is a domain of SPIRIT which is ABSOLUTELY   ALL AND MORE THAN YOU CAN DREAM OF and it is not in any form that myth or fairy tale has proclaimed.
It is unformed CHAOS! An INTELLIGENCE OF WILL!  A LIVING BEING/MIND UNIMAGINABLE IN ITS INFINITE WISDOM, KNOWING, UNDERSTANDING, COMPREHENSION, INTRICACY, DEPTH.  NONE OF THESE TERMS WITHIN YOUR PRESENT UNDERSTANDING.
The VIBRATION RATE OF SPIRIT IN THE ABSOLUTE IS AN ULTIMATE  BEYOND CALCULATION OR THE EXISTENCE OF THOSE WHO WOULD      BE OF A MIND TO MEASURE!
   
For those coming along the speedway of faster vibrations, more and more magic is taking place as Nature foundations the transcendental man.   Mentalism need not be conscious effort  as experiences occur to awaken your recognition of WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT THAT MEANS! You do become aware! That is part of a GRACE that is bestowed upon the special “Islands” of Gods children on Earth.
Please do remember that meaningful, purposeful work  is transcendental  and being speeded up to faster vibrations does not come from frantic activity or busy work to show that you are doing something before you die. That concept alone is destructive. The two concepts (busy work/mortal death)  are killers in the blood.  There are  two concepts of Death...Mortal death and The Path of Ascendance into Immortality/Spirit. One with One in consciousness***
       
That Path of Ascendance is the taking on of speeding up the vibrations of your life. This is the application of vibration from human  to trans-human life as you know it before becoming closer to that vision of PERFECTION that each man holds in his heart and mind whether he/she knows it or not for  THE MEMORY OF PERFECTION IS THERE AND  IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE GREAT ONE POINTED DESIRE TO RETURN TO SOURCE/GOD BY ANY NAME/THE ALL/SPIRIT/HOME.

***The state of vibration of the operator is causal.
***The higher you go, the more you must know  this well until it is part of you...

Be careful what you desire, pray, think - for all your thoughts and dreams  and unrecognized curses may come true and back at you! It takes awareness and some self training and recognition but put your force behind the highest, noble Universal ideals  and vibrate your new Higher Self into an infinity of fulfillment - Wholeness!
VIBRATION
    “New Worlds are created and old worlds pass away.”  We speed up our vibrations and we change. We are different persons than we were before. Different person, different view/perspective, different actions, different reactions - thus different results called worlds!  Change your view, that changes you, your world, the quality of life itself.This way or that way, it keeps on going.
   
The higher you go, the more you perceive and know. The more causal you become,  the faster things happen to and around you. Liken yourself to a catalyst. You vibrate. Your world vibrates around you exactly corresponding to who you are. You  literally have a diamond in the brain (the pineal gland). This  develops as you do.

    You are the Temple, the Laboratory, the Servant, the Neophyte, the Adept becoming Master ...You are those designations, those things are you...all is in the Mind Of God and God is in you. And all at once. There is time, place and cause. There is ultimately no time, place or cause and it is all right!  Wherever you are, keep the transcendental cause  in mind. Go one step at a time. Don’t be

What Kyballion means to me.

VIBRATION -  “If that which thou seekest, thou findest not within thyself, thou wilt never find it without thee.”    (Hermetic Philosophy)

    Speed is what you need. Yes, to go up the ladder of metals to the mountain top one has to quicken. That’s do more, take on tasks,  take responsibility, go through the impossible, be brave, courageous and true to yourself and attenuate toward becoming more and more and the most that you are able to be. You speed up and your vibration speeds up. Faster than the speed of light. Faster than a speeding bullet. Eventually the human eye can not see you  but the trans-human being that you become can both see and hear more than most are able to know is even there.
   
Yes,  there is growth in “some direction, dimension or amplification.” Eventually we change that word “some” to “all” directions, dimensions and amplifications.

Don’t say “no, I can’t, I won’t”. Go for the biggest scenario of your life. Work your way up doing what you know is right in your heart. Take so-called failures as a lesson or a turn in direction. Improve on it or take another path but still keep on going and doing what your heart tells you is you next step toward greatness and fulfillment in the REAL VALUES OF THE UNIVERSE.
   
GO THROUGH THE IMPOSSIBLE FOR THERE IS NONE SUCH THING. Giant steps or step by step- take the time to improve yourself. Be creative. Be all things to all people. Be brother to all people for they are that to you and more so. Play all roles if only on the stage or in your imagination. Be not fearful  for this is the way to go. This is speed in the human experience. This is you bringing up the rate of your vibration in the coming of a larger IDENTITY. As you become more  able,  you speed up the process of metamorphosis   which is the  transmuting of lead to gold and/or the caterpillar to the butterfly, the human to the trans-man to the winged one. The adept to the golden master to the now  INCOMPREHENSIBLE, but not impossible for WHO you can become to know!
   


Becoming  and Believing is magic and magical coincidences take place, pour forth -   but not all perceive what is occurring. Yet, these happen all the time to change the “picture” of the jig saw puzzle that is life. Magical coincidences happen more in speeded up lives. High vibrations can change the being and all that is connected/corresponded to that being who is speeding up. Where  did that saying come from? When you want something done, give it to a busy person. High vibrations!
Now do not believe that quiet meditative work sitting in your chair at a desk (ex-cathedra) is not the most subtle form of speed. No miracles or magical coincidences  that are of Universal value in your processing will happen without this work included. That is unless you need a big lesson! I would rather  learn at the “table” than be hit in life by one of these. However, as the values of the Universe are often in reverse of earth values, some of these lessons may not be apparent to the one receiving it.

The secret of all the mysteries is that YOU  are the subject of all the lessons. Whatever is explained or declared in statement of Law is about and is YOU. Read it correctly and come aware of your lesson toward Wisdom and the Knowledge of ALL THERE IS. THIS IS AN INVALUABLE CLUE AND AID TOWARDS BECOMING SPEED ITSELF.
The only thing that does not die is DEATH ITSELF. Become the life, death, sex, serpent force itself by speeding up to a vibration fast enough to join and become one with  the FORCE. Yes, you are the laboratory with the potential to speed up the return to HOME. To be HOME. “My Father and I are One.”
