“nothing escapes the Principle of CAUSE and EFFECT, but there are “many Planes of Causation” and one may use the LAWS of the HIGHER to overcome the LAWS of the LOWER.
One of my good friends asked why the “Divine” was not more “Democratic in regard to giving some people more “wisdom” and others “no wisdom at all”
Well it seems that the Kybalion Seven Laws, if understood properly, answers that question –
THE HIGHER LAWS ARE MEANT TO DOMINATE THE LOWER LAWS JUST AS THE HIGHER MOUNTAIN PEAKS, DOMINATE THE LOWER MOUNTAIN PEAKS.
WISDOM MUST BE EARNED, IT IS NOT MEANT TO MAKE EVERYONE EQUAL!
THOSE PEOPLE THAT EARN THEIR WISDOM BY DEDICATION TO THE SEVEN PRINCIPLES AS OUTLINED IN THE KYBALION DESERVE THEIR “STATUS”; THOSE WHO “EXPECT WITHOUT EFFORT” ALSO DESERVE WHAT THEY GOT – NOTHING, DESERVEDLY SO!
so what’s needed?
THE COMPREHENSION OF THE HERMETIC TEACHINGS; AND THIS BLOG IS DEDICATED TO RAISING, LIFTING UP THE CONSCIOUSNESS LEVEL OF EVERY SINCERE “ASPIRANT” THAT COMES TO OUR BLOG.
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR IGNORANCE SINCE OUR BLOG IS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE, FREE OF CHARGE!
SINCE EVERYONE “IS ON THEIR OWN PATH” WHICH OF COURSE MEANS, “ABLE” TO “KNOW THE DIFFERENCE” BETWEEN WHAT IS AND WHAT ISNT, WHAT IS THE ‘CHAFF’ AND WHAT IS THE WHEAT, THEN ITS BEHOLDEN ON THEM “TO RAISE THEIR OWN CONSCIOUSNESS (WISDOM) !
WHEN THE ‘STUDENT IS READY’; THE TEACHER APPEARS”
ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT! THERE IS ‘NO FREE LUNCH’ NO FREE RIDE! EVERYONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEMSELVES!
By an understanding of the practice of POLARIZATION , the Hermatists Rise to a HIGHER PLANE of CAUSATION, and thus counter-balance the laws of the Lower Planes of Causation.
By “rising” above the plane “ordinary Causes” they become themselves, in a “degree” CAUSES instead of being merely CAUSED.
By being able to MASTER their “own moods, and feelings,” and by being able to NEUTRALIZE RHYTHM, as we have already explained, they are able to “escape” a great part of the operations of CAUSE, and EFFECT on the ordinary plane.
The masses of people are carried along, obedient to their environment; the WILLS and DESIRES of others STRONGER than themselves; the EFFECTS of INHERITED tendencies; the SUGGESTIONS of those about them; and other outward causes; which tend to move them about on the CHESS-BOARD of LIFE like many MERE PAWNS.
By RISING ABOVE these “influencing “causes” the “advanced Hermetists” seek a HIGHER PLANE of MENTAL ACTION, and by dominating their MOODS, EMOTIONS, IMPULSES and FEELINGS, they “create” for themselves NEW CHARACTERS, QUALITIES and POWERS, by which they OVERCOME their “ordinary environment, and thus become practically players instead of mere PAWNS.
Such people help to play the game of life understandingly, instead of being moved about this way and that way by stronger influences and POWERS and WILLS.
THEY USE THE PRINCIPLE OF CAUSE AND EFFECT, INSTEAD OF BEING USED BY IT>
Of course, even the HIGHEST are subject to the PRINCIPLE as it manifests on the HIGHER PLANES, but on the LOWER PLANES of activity, they are MASTERS instead of SLAVES. AS THE kYBALION says:
THE WISE ONES SERVE ON THE HIGHER, BUT RULE ON THE LOWER.
They OBEY the LAWS coming from ABOVE THEM, but on their own plane, and those below them, they RULE and GIVE ORDERS.
And , yet, in so doing, they form a part of the PRINCIPLE, instead of “opposing it”.
The WISE MAN FALLS IN WITH THE LAW, by understanding “its movements, he operates it instead of BEING ITS BLIND SLAVE.
Just as does the “skilled swimmer” turn this way and that way, going and coming as HE WILL, instead of being as the LOG which is carried here and there—-so is the WISE MAN as compared to the ordinary man—and yet both swimmer and log; wise man and fool, are:
SUBJECT TO LAW – HE WHO UNDERSTANDS THIS IS WELL ON THE ROAD TO MASTERY.
“TRUE HERMETIC TRANSMUTATION IS A MENTAL ART”
In the above axiom, the Hermetists teach that the great work of “influencing one’s environment” is “accomplished” by
THE UNIVERSE BEING WHOLLY MENTAL!
IT MAY BE RULED ONLY BY MENTALITY!
And in this TRUTH is to be FOUND an explanation of all the PHENOMENA and MANIFESTATIONS, of the “various” MENTAL POWERS which are “attracting” so much attention and study in these earlier years of the Twentieth Century.
Back of and under the teachings of the “various cults, and schools, remains ever constant the Principle of the Mental Substance of the Universe.
If the Universe be MENTAL in its SUBSTANTIAL nature, then it follows that MENTAL TRANSMUTATION MUST CHANGE, THE CONDITIONS AND PHENOMENA of the UNIVERSE.
If this be understood then all the so-called “MIRACLES’ and WONDER-WORKINGS” are seen PLAINLY forf what they are.
THE ALL IS MIND; THE UNIVERSE IS MENTAL.
I did my work – now it your turn to do yours
THE FUTURE OF OUR WORLD DEPENDS ON THOSE THAT “KNOW”!!!!
