The Seven Principles of Hermes

Hermes Trismegistus The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Translation of Original Arabic Book

4 Polarity 

“Everything is dual; everything has poles;  everything has its pair of opposites;  opposites are  identical in nature, but different indegree;  extremes  meet; all truths are but half truths.”

2 Correspondence

“As above so below;  as below so above;  as within so without;  as without so within.”

6 Cause and Effect

“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause;  everything happens according to the law;  chance is but the name for a law not recognized;  there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the law.”

7 Gender

“Gender is in everything;  everything has its masculine and feminine principles;  gender manifests  on all planes.”    










5 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.”

1 Mentalism  

“Everything is mental;  the Universe is a mental creation of the All.”

“The act of observing alters the reality being observed.”  (Heisenberg Principle)

3 Vibration

“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.”
