The Seven Hermetic Laws Part 4
I would like to thank those who have taken the time to read and commit on this series of dialogs that highlight the wisdom of the ancient Egyptian sage Tehuti also known by the Greeks as Hermes. The seven Hermetic Principles of Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Gender, Rhythm and Causation are considered to be the foundation for the writings and philosophy of Hermes and the wisdom that allowed ancient Egypt to excel in the areas of science and architecture.
There is now evidence to show how this ancient Egyptian philosophy has also directly or indirectly influenced the development of the human race; and will continue to be a major factor in the next human evolution in this new Age of Awareness.
“The sixth Hermetic principle of Rhythm explains the universal cycle of all things. All things rise and fall “solar systems, suns, planets, races of humanity and civilizations are all subject to the Law of Rhythm” writes Wayne B. Chandler in has book “Ancient Future: The Teachings and Prophetic Wisdom of the Seven Hermetic Laws of Ancient Egypt”. You are now reading about a way of thinking that dates back more than 5000 years because the frequency of the universe is moving back to the cycle of awareness.
The seventh and last Hermetic principle of Causation explains the universal truth that nothing happens by chance. All things happen for a reason there is no such thing as a coincidence. What goes around comes around is an ancient Egyptian philosophy that we still use today; now you know where it comes from. In keeping with this thinking reading this dialog is for a purpose and is not by chance or coincidence.
I will post all four parts of this dialog on my blog at www.theartofwarogers.com I would also suggest picking up the Chandler book” Ancient Future”. Understanding and learning how to use the Seven Hermetic Laws of Ancient Egypt will improve your ability to develop a higher level of consciousness in this new age of awareness. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org you can also call me at 646 329-6727 to learn more about this subject or to make an appointment to visit or Harlem Taoist wellness center.
Remember all things happen for a reason and there is a reason that you are now reading this dialog but knowledge without action will not create change. We must learn to change the way we think, we must deprogram ourselves if we want to improve the quality of life for ourselves and those who are close to use. The Seven Hermetic Laws provides ancient knowledge and guidance necessary to productively address our future.

The Seven Hermetic Laws Part 3
The Hermetic Philosophy did not originate in Greece. It is now a known fact that Tehuti an ancient Egyptian sage who the Greeks called Hermes wrote what is considered by many the worlds’ oldest doctrines. The burning of the Great Egyptian Library of Alexandria was after Greek scholars studied much of the information housed in it. Wayne B. Chandler states in his book “Ancient Future: The Teachings and Prophetic of the Seven Hermetic Laws of Ancient Egypt” that a few of Tehuti’s volumes of work were saved and buried in a secret place in the desert by initiates of Egyptian secret societies.
The Seven Hermetic Laws are believed to be the foundation of Tehuti’s work. The third Hermetic Principle Vibration states that all things are in motion. Modern science has proven this ancient theory but the ancient Hermetic also considered the different frequencies of vibration the higher the frequency the more advanced the life form. Tehuti’s writings considered all aspects of thought; such as emotion, will and desire to be forms of vibration. I often write about the power of thought manifestation a concept that is no longer a secret.
The forth Hermetic Principle Polarity states that everything has its pair of opposites, everything is dual; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree. This ancient Egyptian concept was the foundation of the Taoist yin/yang philosophy which is the foundation of the I- Ching the famous Book of Change.
The principle of polarity can also be found in the writings of the ancient Ife societies of West Africa. The yin/yang or positive/negative principle of polarity found in the sixty-four binary triplet hexagrams of the I-Ching correspond directly with sixty-four binary triplet figures called DNA codons discovered by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953. This discovery is considered the pathway to understand the key to life.
I have a few articles about the I Ching and how this ancient book has influenced and will continue to influence human evolution; on my blog at www.theartofwarogers.com. The fact that this book can now be traced to the writings of an ancient Egyptian(The Hermetic Principle of Polarity) thousands of years ago; is fascinating.
The Principle of Gender is the fifth Hermitic axiom which embodies the concept that all things are masculine and feminine. The Taoist yin/yang symbol is an example of this concept each part contains an aspect of the other. We often view gender as being a way to determine sex but the ancient Hermitic view of gender was as one thing with different degrees or poles. A thermometer is good example of this concept, at one end it measures the cold, the other end measures heat, temperature is one thing that only differs in degrees. There is a feminine part in every male and a masculine part in every female.
In the last part of this dialog I will write about the sixth Hermitic principle of Rhythem and the seventh principle of Causation and why it is so important that the masses become aware of the Seven Hermitic Principles and how to use them as a guide to elevate to a higher frequency of consciousness in this new age of awareness.

The Seven Hermetic Laws
In part one of this four part series, the spiritual number seven was disused it was by design that the ancient Egyptian sage Tehuti (also known by the Greeks as Hermes) created seven axioms that formed the base of the Hermetic Philosophy written thousands of years ago, a philosophy that comprised the scientific, spiritual, and moral fabric in ancient empires to include; China, India, Egypt and Southern Arabia. Taoism is one of the few philosophies that have maintained some visible relationship to the ancient writings of Tehuti/Hermes.
Until resent times only historians and scholars were aware of the seven Hermetic Principles which have greatly influenced life as we know it today and will continue to influence human development in the future. Wayne B. Chandler gives a wonderful and easy to understand history of the time of Tehuti/Hermes and his writings in “Ancient Future: The Teaching and Prophetic Wisdom of the Seven Hermetic Laws of Ancient Egypt. I agree with Chandler when he states that “it is time for the masses to have knowledge of the great power that we all have a power that has be kept secret for centuries”.
The following is a brief description of the seven Hermetic Laws:
The Principle of Mentalism: God is energy it is in everything and everything is in it humans were created in the image of God we are energy. Hermetic considered the All as the spiritual concept of God, the All was here at the being and will be here at the end. The human mind is the connection to the All. Like the All humans have the ability to create though the power of the mind. According to Chandler this has been the world’s best-kept-secret.
The Principle of Correspondence: The ancient Hermetic philosophy considered that all within the universe emanated from the same source and this source the All instilled its formula in every aspect of creation. “As above, so below; as below, so above.’ This axiom reflects the relationship between the macrocosmic and the microcosmic reality. Science today still cannot explain how ancient cultures understood our stellar system without the use of telescopes. We now understand that the human body works like the universe if you truly understand how the human body works, you can understand how our universe works that both work in the same way; as below so above. The symbol that represents this axiom is what is now known as the Star of David, but this six pointed star was present in India and Egypt more than 2,000 years ago long before it became a Jewish symbol.
In part three of this four part dialog I will write about third the Hermetic Principle of Vibration and the forth Hermetic Principle of Polarity. These two ancient Egyptian writings of Tehuti/Hermes serve as the foundation for Taoism as well as recent discoveries in Quantum Physics.
If you visit my blog at www.theartofwarogers.com you will see that most of my dialogs have a relationship to the writings of ancient an Egyptian. Perhaps this is why many will be introduced to the Seven Hermitic Laws at this time; a time of a universal frequency change. All things happen in cycles or as Chandler puts’ it “Ancient Future”.
The Seven Hermetic Laws
The early Egyptian writings of Tehuti also known to ancient Greeks and contemporary scholars as Thoth or Hermes have served as a foundation for human development for well over five thousand years. Wayne B. Chandler’s writes in his wonderful book “Ancient Future: The Teachings and Prophetic Wisdom of the Seven Hermetic Laws of Ancient Egypt” that the laws found in the Hermetic philosophy comprised the scientific, spiritual and moral fabric of the great ancient civilizations to include Egypt, China, India, Kush, and Southern Arab
The fact that there are seven Hermetic laws or principles in the ancient Egyptian writings gives insight to the wisdom of the ancient Egyptian author; seven is a spiritual number. Wayne Chandler explains it this way, ”The great Hermetic principles or laws that have been left to us are seven in number. Seven is not an arbitrary figure, but a powerful and extremely significant symbol of divine or universal cohesiveness that permeates the core of our very existence.
The following is a simple of what Chandler means:
1. There are seven days in a week and fifty-two weeks in a year (5 +2=7)
2. There are Seven Cardinal Colors in the solar spectrum-violet indigo, blue, green, yellow , orange and red all other colors are derived from the seven.
3. There are Seven Key Notes in the musical scale
4. There are Seven Continents
5. There are Seven seas
6. There are Seven Holes that lead into the human body-ears, nostrils, mouth, anus, and vaginal or penile orifices. The human brain, heart, eye, and ear are each divided into Seven Parts.
7. There are Seven Virtues- faith, hope, charity, strength, prudence, and justice. There Seven Deadly Sins-pride, avarice, luxury, wrath, idleness, gluttony and envy.
My good friend Lloyd Strayhorn one of the top numerologist in America during an interview on my Urbanology radio show give me more interesting facts about the number seven. Lloyd explained that Bishop Desmond Tutu was born on October 7th, Elijah Muhammad founder of the Nation of Islam was born on October 7th and died on February 25th (2+5=7), Billy Graham was born on November 7th, Mary Baker Eddy founder of Christian Science was born on July 16 (1+6=7), Charles Taze Russel founder of Jehovah’s Witnesses was born on February 16th the first Watch Tower was published July(7th month) 1879 and Jesus Christ was born on December 25th
Chandler states that “it is not by chance so many components of human life are connected to expressions of seven. The ancients held that seven was the most spiritually inclined of all the numbers, therefore it is befitting that there are seven Harmetic Laws.
Next week in part two of this dialog I will explain how the seven ancient Egyptian Hermetic Principles of Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Gender, Rhythm, and Cause and Effect are the key to the next stage of human evolution. It has been said that they who know and understand the seven Hermetic laws of Ancient Egypt will obtain the wisdom of Heaven and Earth, this knowledge should no longer be kept secret from the masses.
