Learning From The Ancients: The 7 Hermetic Principles

The 7 Hermetic Principles are a group of simple condensed natural laws that work as a road map for self-liberation. Written by Hermes Trismegistus, a character whose existence blurs the lines between real and mythical.  

“Master of all arts and sciences, perfect in all crafts, Ruler of the Three Worlds, Scribe of the Gods, and Keeper of the Books of Life, Thoth Hermes Trismegistus — the Three Times Greatest, the “First Intelligencer” — was regarded by the ancient Egyptians as the embodiment of the Universal Mind. While in all probability there actually existed a great sage and educator by the name of Hermes, it is impossible to extricate the historical man from the mass of legendary accounts which attempt to identify him with the Cosmic Principle of Thought.” Manly P. Hall — The Secret Teachings of All Ages
