I posted on a topic this morning, where I said I wouldn't break a oath this oath was to myself, I once practiced hermetics, as I said in my Introductory post. I had done extensive research into every aspect of it. I started when I was 17, I was drowned in it, I forced myself to develop the discipline, to keep at it. My main focus at the time was to only look for powers, and the rules of failure for this that were rumored on the net in many forums were just, myths. I am not posting this to say I am or was advanced, because in a world of duality, there really is no definite truth. I am posting this to show my research, between Hermetics and The Bible.
Now I will start with the bible.
The bible has to be the single most controversial topic there is, but there is definitely and element of high esoteric knowledge contained within it. The book of Genesis for instance, is a good starting place. A lot of people actually believe it was written first, it wasn't. The book of revelations was. Genesis is more so of a allegorical story. It was held by the kabbalists of that time, it is a story that is describing the creation of the material world on a atomic level where Adam is atom, and his rib is just an orbit or a proton or electron, (6 electron, 6 proton, 6 neutron( mark of the beast)). The garden is also allegorical where the SIN we fail into is actually SINE a physics term or formula used to describe time. When you work with this formula, you begin to see a wave length that resembles what? A serpent. Now I am posting a few of these representations, to lead to how maybe the bible is more then you thought before, and to show that there is some element of inner cultivation in it where if you followed it you can recieve enlightenment, through it also. The secret to it lay with the 12 tribes though. these tribes are in fact cranial nerves. The 12 tribes of israel (Isis, Ra, El ( the mother (holy spirit, Father, Son)) are the things we need to cultivate, or work towards developing better. And how do we do this? With Christ or the light and what is the light we see and experience everyday? THE SUN. You see the place where Hermetics, The Bible, and Toaism were developed was Egypt (Kemet). And they were well knowledgeable about the Glandular body, or Endocrine System. This system when exposed to light did certain things, I won't go into detail in right now, but it was the predecessor to Hermetics. This is what I will cover as far as The Bible right Now, any questions please ask.
Now we will look at Hermetics.
The thing is with Hermetics also, it was written in alot of code lol, I won't cover as much here, because this subject is not as controversial, but I will point to a practice within the Emerald Tablets, that is the basis of all Taoist practices, the MCO.
This tablet describes completely, that if you master the Microcosm, you can master the things around you.
The tablets, can be used with the understanding of the symbolism with any path of inner development, but I am posting this only to give you a second look at the things that are so over looked and under rated.
Oh and this is just a little bit of My Stories (Mysteries)
