Welcome to the first issue of Ascend Academy.
Brace yourselves, we are about to delve into the mother load of all spiritual concepts. This article reveals the meaning behind the 7 Hermetic Principles of truth, directly from their source, The Kybalion.
I am about to present some very powerful information to you that may stir up a lot of discussion, and possibly opposition. These seven principles are considered to be ABSOLUTE TRUTHS, and many ancient and current hermeticists, mystics, philosophers and so called enlightened beings regard its application to be THE Master key path to understanding the self and it’s relation to all that is.
If you feel within yourself that you are not ready to handle this information, feel free to come back and read when you are. These teachings have been kept secret for thousands of years by the Hermetic tradition, only being passed between master and initiate of countless different occult societies across human history. This was out of fear that this information would be used by those who did not quite understand its significance, or who had selfish intentions and lack of wisdom. In 1912, it was published by an anonymous entity known as the Three Initiates(?) and has since been put into public domain, now widely available online.
I believe that this knowledge should be widespread so that we can begin implementing and spreading its profound wisdom and applications for the ascension of mankind as a whole.
It is clear that the ancient masters did not wish for these principles to be ‘crystallized into creeds by any country or religious sect’. So while viewing this information, HAVE YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE, and consider this to be a pragmatic philosophy for understanding the spiritual reality.
The dense quotations I’ve placed describing these principles are directly from the kybalion.org and I suggest you give that a read after viewing this article if you wish to go even deeper. I will also try to break down what each principle means to us in our day to day lives as well as in relevance to our spiritual practice. I hope this knowledge resonates! (THIS ARTICLE IS QUITE LONG; Taking breaks in between every other principle is recommended!)
