Apr 21, Jann rated it it was amazing Shelves: metaphysics , spiritual , favorites. This is NOT a book on magic as in the description from goodreads. It explains the "science" of spirit or "All-That-Is". It resonated with me, and from it my interest in hermetic philosophy was ignited. View all 3 comments. This stands as one of the most important books I've read about the nature of reality and the supersensible universe.
As with any work intending to teach through words something that is larger and exponentially more complex than language will always require careful study. And though this book is not long by page standards, it requires careful, slow study if one is to get the maximum weight of the material. If you are unable to let go of the question of whether there is more to the universe than me This stands as one of the most important books I've read about the nature of reality and the supersensible universe.
If you are unable to let go of the question of whether there is more to the universe than meets the eye, this should be on your reading list. If the idea of supersensible realms of experience do not drive you, or you think the idea of anything that cannot be seen with the objective eye is absurd, save yourself time and don't bother with this. For me, this may stand as the most important piece of instruction I've received, even though I feel like I understood most of the ideas before.
This work neatly organized and illustrated the differences between seemingly similar phenomena like vibration and rhythm, polarity and correspondence, etc. I'd give it 7 stars if I could.

What I learned from this book is that people think I am crazy if I try to talk about this stuff with them hahaha.

This book is a waste of time. It says too much and doesn't really say anything that you cannot find already in pop culture. My guess is that if your approach in reading it is to discover how to develop magical and telekinetic powers, you are only fooling yourself truth be told, this is one of those books that led me to where i am today: an atheist, though not a bitter one, than Kuddos to the people who aim to give away "secrets", hidden from the layman for centuries, without really giving them!
My guess is that if your approach in reading it is to discover how to develop magical and telekinetic powers, you are only fooling yourself truth be told, this is one of those books that led me to where i am today: an atheist, though not a bitter one, thank you very much.
If your approach is purely scholarly in the occult, then you'll probably end up giving this book two stars instead of one, as I just did. It has nothing of value, and is way too close to the Law of Attraction-The Secret bullshit. In any case, it's all bollocks! Finally, I'm appalled at how many people gave 5 stars to this piece of codswallop! If this is a micro of a bigger representation of the world, then there are too many people out there who do not really know how to live their lives; and need bogus authors that cannot even dignify to print their real names on a book to teach them how to live them.
On the other hand, I find it ludicrous that so many people are drawn to this emtpy literature. I mean, Paulo Coehlo is one of the most prolific and best-paids authors! And his books, while crappy, have been read by millions and can be found and the book section of almost any multinational drugstore. One of my professors compared this phenomenon to the advent of light literature, or its American sister, "lite lit".
Do the experiment. Ask people if they read. If they say "yes", aske them what they read. If the start with "The Alchemist", "The Secret", "The DaVinci Code", "Kybalion", or for that matter, the Bible, you already know these people are book illiterate sophists that haven't really had a taste or the chance to try true literature.
Serious literature is not meant to give you any answers. It's meant to raise you even more questions. It's meant to make you think. It doesn't offer you solutions. It gives you more problems to solve. It challenges you. View all 16 comments. This book was written in the early 20th century and while it argues the validity of its teachings on the basis of a misinterpreted view of the antiquity of Hermes Trismegistus's writings, it is still interesting and applicable philosophically.

He was incorrectly viewed as the father of alchemy, mathematics and other disciplines, and so there was a let down when it was proven his writings took place at a much, much later time. These authors are presenting a concise introduction to the core principles of Hermeticism, and it serves as a nice introduction to Hermetic philosophy. Their writing style can be a bit juevenille at times, with many of broad-sweeping statements on an idea's importance and bursting into emphatic usage of all CAPS and frequently ending sentences with exclamation points!
Also, there are a few too many statements made to the tune of "what modern science has failed to understand" or "as modern scientists have come to understand", that are so horribly vague that it makes the book sound a bit unscholarly.
I greatly appreciated the concise, accessible manner in which Hermeticism was discussed in this work. I felt I learned a lot that I'll be able to retain for the future and that owes more to their ability to teach than to my interest in the subject.
However, they needed to stay off the court where the big boys ie, scientists play. They don't belong there, and it makes them sound like charlatans when they try to argue the scientific superiority of Hermeticism with pockets empty of solid examples. Besides, their writing has merit and philosophical value without trying to elevate themselves to a place where they can make broad-sweeping statements that place science in the backseat of a scholar's search for knowledge. This book changed my entire spiritual view of the universe and strengthened my faith in God, but in new ways.
It also helped me understand with greater efficacy the teachings of Jesus Christ. Though the Christ is not mentioned in this text, is was a useful tool in improving my understanding about how he worked the miracles, and the universal laws that govern even God.

The principals here are open-ended enough that they may help those from virtually any faith gain greater understanding for the workings of the universe and how they apply to creation. The Kybalion is known as "the master key" for a reason.
These are the aphorisms set forth my Hermes Trismegistus, known also as Thoth. I have studied this book over and over, and each time, I get it at a deeper level. In all seriousness, if you only read and study one occult text in your entire life, this should be the one.
