The Seven Hermetic Laws Part III
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.
