The 7 Hermetic Principles
I. The Principle of Mentalism.
“THE ALL is MIND; The Universe is Mental.”
II. The Principle of Correspondence.
“As above, so below; as below, so above.”
III. The Principle of Vibration.
“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.”
IV. The Principle of Polarity.
“Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.”
V. The Principle of 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.”
VI. The Principle of Cause and Effect.
“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.”
VII. The Principle of Gender.
“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.”
