Kybalion, what in the world is it, and why has no one ever heard of it? Thousands if not millions of teachings, faith, religion, and even technology originated from centuries or even millenniums ago. The Kybalion happens to be one of those teachings, yet few know of its existence.
The word “impossible” is directly proportional to success. While this might seem a bit far-reaching, it is nevertheless true. If you talk to people who are successful, you will seldom hear the word impossible be bandied about. This is just because their thought processes do not allow for that option to creep into their scheme of things. Again, it not just the word I mean here, it’s the habit of not letting obstacles get in the way.
It is easy to be skeptical about it; I was too earlier. This is because we’ve had a lifetime of self-limiting conditioning that prevents us from reaching out to goals that we think are not within reach.
Breaking Free – The Kybalion
The first question you, the reader, might have is – what is The Kybalion?
A weapon that can break you free from this vicious cycle of self-limiting behavior is ‘The Kybalion’. It is a record of the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus, who practiced Gnosticism (Ancient religious ideas and systems, originating in Jewish-Christian milieux in the first and second century AD.) and regularly wrote to his disciples teaching them about how to use the power of self for a better life.
The existence of Hermes Trismegistus is partly shrouded under myth, but his teachings have helped several people overcome their fears and believe in themselves. People who practice what they read in the Kybalion have broken out of their cocoon and have a life that is much more fulfilling and abundant than they had earlier.
The basis of Hermeticism is the seven ancient principles of mastering the self. These are a different understanding of the world we’ve been living in, and they all focus on a single entity that can improve your life – you.
If you want to understand more about The Kybalion, Wealth Creation Mastermind can help throw light on it.
7 Ancient Principles Of The Kybalion
Dealing with your impossibility is something that you have to take it upon yourself. But not to worry, here you will find how to do just that. These seven principles we are going to explain may help you focus and get where you ought to be. This is not a religion or faith. Only life teaches that will further improve your current understanding.
I) Principle Of Mentalism
“The All is mind; The Universe is Mental.”
The principle of mentalism which Hermeticism is based on. It states that a focused mind is the most powerful device that we can wield. Everything that we think exists in the world such as energy, matter, and life are components of the mind. What should be your takeaway from this should be that the mind is all-encompassing and can alter reality if you firmly believe in it. Thinking positive thoughts can have a significant impact on the challenges you face every day. Visualize that you have overcome the obstacle and reality will follow.
We all have the power to create our own worlds and anything we deem fit. It could even be said that the Universe itself was created from a mental process, or did it just arise spontaneously? All thoughts and ideas that passes or comes to life within our minds, did we not give rise to its existence? Create your own world, the one which you desire and cherish. We are bound by the physical world, but you can be set free. Use your mind, the most powerful weapon in this Universe, and it belongs to us humans.
II) Principle Of Correspondence
“As above, so below; as below, so above. As within, so without; as without, so within.”
The law of correspondence explained. Hermeticism states that there are several planes of existence at any given time. This is manifested in reality as life and being. When you are able to understand this, you can look outward into different planes of existence for answers to your obstacles. There are patterns that exist in your life which you begin to observe in other planes. These can give you valuable insights into your plane of existence.
To put it simply. What we think, fear, love, hate, and the likes all dwell within us. It will make present of itself, externally. Eventually we will start to depict these thoughts or feelings. So an evil person may actually end up manifesting his thoughts. We become what we so think of. Do not forget this principle because it is one of the top principles of The Kybalion!
III) Principle Of Vibration
“Nothing rests; Everything moves; Everything vibrates.”
Vibration is a property that pervades all matter. This is even scientifically proven and at a molecular level, we find that everything has a characteristic vibration that defines it. Vibration is a powerful property in that it can transform from sound (low vibration) to light and even heat (high vibration). Every person has varying frequencies of vibration that you can control. The takeaway from this would be to make sure that you exude positive vibrations which will resonate around you will find obstacles soon disappear.
Music, radions, heat, electricty, water, sound, and everything has vibration. Naked to the human eye but not machines or even some animals. Think higher, think godlike. You can create higher vibration by feeling and thinking about your goals and success. Of course, execution if the key. Eventually that vibration has to go somewhere, why not make it a reality?
IV) Principle Of Polarity
“Everything is dual; Everything has poles; Everything has its pair of opposites;”
This principle states that polarity exists in everything and is considered a different state of the same thing. We can be in different fluxes of feelings at different times – sad or happy, bored or excited. These are just transitions of the same person. When you act on these variations, you might find yourself dealing with the consequences. To get rid of the hurdles in your life, try to center yourself as much as possible. Remember that being calm is more critical to better decision making.
Just because they are opposite doesn’t mean they are. For instance, man and women are both human. Hot and cold are both temperatures. Pain and happiness are both emotions and so on. It doesn’t necessarily mean an opposite exist. What is the polar opposite of a drawing? With that being said, you’ll want to lean toward the polarity that benefits or helps you. Don’t side with poverty and negativity, rather practice positivity and work hard and you will achieve anything you so desire.
V) Principle Of Rhythm
“Everything flows, out and in; Everything has its tides; All things rise and fall;”
The transition between the different states of polarity is called rhythm. Nothing ever exists in one state through time, there is always pushing or pulling, rising or falling, backward or forwards, to everything. We should take heart in the fact that nothing ever is set in stone, good or bad – both don’t last long.
Most things in life work on cycles. Humans live to about 77 years. There are 365 days in a year. There are 60 seconds in a minute. The sun rises from the east and sets in the west. Most of us live the same lives over and over. This is what the principle of rhythm is. Rhythm is good. When music flows, it sounds pleasant. When the weather is not to hot or cold and blows just the right amount of wind, then it is wonderful.
With that said, most humans do not live a harmonic life. We do the same thing over and over without maturity or self-improvement. Create your rhythm in a way that makes every day worth waking up to. Change the beat if things aren’t going the way you planned or even shut it off. You create your own music and rhythm, one which gives you purpose and joy to live.
VI) The Principle Of Cause And Effect
“Every cause has its effect; Every effect has its cause; Everything happens according to law;”
This law states that every action in the universe has an equal and opposite reaction. This principle states that there is no element of chance in anything we do or what happens to us. Everything is a sum of what actions were taken by us through our lives. This principle describes that you need to be action taker rather than just waiting for things to happen to you. You need to meet challenges head-on and find solutions to it rather than putting it away. Things that you put away have an unpleasant habit of blindsiding you when you least expect.
Although luck and accidents are every day life occurrences, they are not enough to factor into our success and failure. Everything you do is based on your own fault and choosing. You are poor because you are lazy and unmotivated. You have a beautiful wife because you choose to and put in the required time and effort. 99% of everything that has happened, is happening, or will happened is entirely affect by your own choices. Therefore, success is an option and so is failure.
Life itself is a cause and effect. You punch a rock, you hurt your hands. You cuss at your mother, she hits you with the belt. You sleep all day, eventually you’ll become weak and fragile. The stronger and healthier your actions are, then the effect will be as well. Look at yourself, how great or low are/were your caused? Now look at their effects. Do they manifest themselves or not?
VII) Principle Of Gender
“Gender is in everything; Everything has its masculine and feminine principles; Gender manifests on all planes.”
The property of gender exists in the mental plane as well and doesn’t just mean the differences in physical aspects of living things. This is the principle of gender. There is male and female, and it has their own unique energy which affects things around them differently. Masculine energy is dominant and progressive. The cons of excess masculine energy are being reckless and self-destructive. Properties of feminine energy are protection, nourishment, and mindfulness. While excess feminine energy can bring about anxiety and excess introspection. You need to balance out both energies in your mind to derive the most benefit.
Everything is yin or yang. Some can comprise of both. A male may exhibit female qualities and thoughts. A small animal may show power and stability. If you know yourself, then that is all that matter. Both yin and yang are good, depending on the situation. Everything must be balance, in life and this universe. Balance is the key to stability and eternity. A prime example is the Universe itself, 14+ billion years of evidence.
In no way are we telling you to follow one faith or whatnot. Everything we provide is for self-help and education. It is your job to take the knowledge and better yourself. Faith, religion, and the words of men can be dangerous, however, it can be a great lesson to improve thyself. It is what you choose to do that maketh who you are. You have no one to blame for your success or failures but yourself.
Through the years, life will throw several problems at you and a lot of times you’ll just to be tempted to declare getting through them “impossible” and either give up or seek help. But believe me when I tell you that things that were thought impossible are all around us. Things that are heavier than air flying? Airplanes. Instantaneous communication across thousands of miles away in your pocket? Mobile phones. Devices that can compute trillions of calculations per second? Computers. As a race, we are eliminating impossibilities every day. There is nothing that you can’t do if you put your mind to it.
