Hermetic Principles

“It is The Law of Three Forces,’ or the Three Pure Ones. The 3 Forces of universal law are: active, passive and mutual or neutral. The Christian doctrine of the Trinity (from Latin trinitas “triad”, from trinus “threefold”) which defines God as three consubstantial persons, expressions, or hypostases: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. The Trinity depicted in Hinduism with Brahma as the creator, Shiva is the destroyer, and Vishnu is the preserver. To the Taoist, it is Yin, Yang, and Tao.

The pentagram or five-pointed star that is a symbol of man with his five limbs and five sensory organs as the upright spiritual human who places spirit above his or her animal body. The seal of Solomon uniting the alchemical heavens and earth in the As Above, So Below holy human matrimony. The circumpunct of the soul in which man must climb the ladder of chaos back to true self or order.” By Moe the Gnostic Warrior
Hermetic Principles:

MENTALISM--The Principle of Mentalism embodies the idea that "All is Mind." Everything that happens has to be a result of a mental state which precedes it. For anything to exist, thoughts had to form first, which then form physical reality or manifestation. "Your thoughts are seeds, plant positive seeds in your mind garden."

CORRESPONDENCE-- The Principle of Correspondence expresses the idea that there is always a correspondence between the laws of phenomena of the various "planes" of being and life. As above, so below; as below, so above. This principle states that there is a harmony which can be made, agreement and correspondence between these planes, delineated as:

VIBRATION--This expounds the idea that motion is manifest in everything in the Universe, that nothing rests, and everything moves, vibrates and circles. This principle explains that the distinction between manifestations of Matter, Energy, Mind, and even Spirit, are the result of only different "vibrations". The higher a person is on the scale, the higher the rate of vibration will be. Here, The All is said to be at an infinite level of vibration, almost to the point of being at rest. There are said to be millions upon millions of varying degrees between the highest level, The All, and the objects of the lowest vibration.

(MENTAL TRANSMUTATION)--To change one's mental state is to change vibration. One may do this by an effort of Will, by means of deliberately "fixing the attention" upon a more desirable state. POLARITY--This embodies the idea that everything is dual, everything has two poles, and everything has its opposite. All manifested things have two sides, two aspects, or two poles. Everything "is" and "isn't" at the same time, all truths are but half truths and every truth is half false, there are two sides to everything, opposites are identical in nature yet different in degree, extremes meet, and all paradoxes may be reconciled.
