Hermetic Philosophy ~ A Brief Intro

Published December 30, 2018 by tindertender

The Substantial Reality: Substance is that which underlies all outward manifestations; the essence; the thing itself. Substantial is actually existing; being real. Reality is true; enduring; valid; fixed; permanent. Under all outward appearances there must always be a Substantial Reality. This is the Law.

Nothing is permanent but Change. Everything is in a constant state of ‘becoming’, or ‘changing’. Nothing endures but change. All of these changing things are outward appearances or manifestations of the underlying power, some Substantial Reality.

Many names have been given this Substantial Reality. Some have called it by the term Diety (many names). Others have called it The Infinite and Eternal Energy, or Matter. The Hermetic name is THE ALL, who’s inner nature is unknowable. THE ALL is Infinite in Time, Eternal.

Something can never become nothing. Everything is THE ALL, yet what is finite and changeable cannot be THE ALL. Per science: Matter is merely interrupted energy, or force … Low vibration, nothing can rise higher than its source.

THE ALL is Infinite Living Mind – as compared to finite life and mind (humans). THE ALL is Infinite Living Mind, the Illumined call it Spirit. What is Spirit? It means “the real essence”. It transcends our understanding.

THE ALL creates the Universe and everything in it mentally, as men do with their own thought forms. There is no subtraction from, or adding to THE ALL. The Universe and all it contains is a mental creation of THE ALL, All = Mind. The Infinite mind of THE ALL is the Womb of the Universe.

Gender does not mean ‘sex’. Sex is merely a material manifestation of gender. Gender means relating to generation, or creation. The idea of a male and female god or creator is a distortion of the ancient teachings. THE ALL is above gender, as it is above every other Law, including those of Time and Space. It is the Law from which Laws proceed, and it is not subject to them. THE ALL is one – the two aspects are merely manifestations in THE ALLs Infinite Mind … the Universe is generated, created and exists.

There are beings with powers and attributes higher than man has ever dreamed of the gods possessing. They were once lower than man, and man will one day be higher than them. This is the Destiny of Man as reported by the Illumined. At the end of the Grand Cycle of Aeons, when THE ALL shall draw back into itself all of its creation, people will go gladly, and they will be able to,know the whole truth of being at one with THE ALL.

Within the Father/Mother mind of THE ALL, mortal children are at home. There is not one who is fatherless, nor motherless in the Universe.

Chance is but a name for Law not recognized. Nothing escapes the Law.

Mind may be transmuted from state to state, degree to degree, condition to condition, pole to pole, vibration to vibration. Transmutation (wisdom) not presumptuous denial (presumption = half truth), is the weapon of the Master. Remember ever the two poles of truth – the Absolute and the Relative. Beware of half truths.

Anything that has a beginning and an end must be, in a sense, unreal and untrue, and the Universe comes under this rule in all schools of thought. It is unsubstantial, non-enduring, a thing of time, space and change.

Truth as Absolute (things as the mind of God knows) and Relative ( things as the highest reason of man understands them).

Transmutation uses Laws against Laws, the higher against the lower, and by the Art of Alchemy transmutes that which is undesirable into that which is worthy, and thus triumph!

Mastery consists not in abnormal dreams, visions and fantastic imagining or living, but in using the higher forces against the lower – escaping the pains of the lower planes by vibrating on the higher. Transmutation, not presumptuous denial, is the weapon of the Master.

While All is in THE ALL, it is equally true that THE ALL is in All.

If I imagine a man paining on canvas, and there is a nude model posing on a sofa, do these visions have a concept of reality separate from my imagining, or of life as pertains to my mental image? Do they see themselves as alive experiencing reality? Do they have a personal Spirit independent of my thought? The Law of Paradox explains that it is true, viewed from the proper viewpoints.

The Spirit of my Creator is inherent within me, and yet I am not He. The half-truth = I am god. Imagine the characters of a book claiming to be the author. THE ALL is in the earthworm, and yet the earthworm is far from being THE ALL.

The beginning of the creative cycle, THE ALL in its aspect of being, projects its Will toward its aspect of becoming and the process of creation begins. It is taught that the process consists of the lowering of Vibration while a very low degree of vibratory energy is reached, at which point the grossest possible form of Matter is manifested. This process is called The Stage of Involution in which THE ALL becomes involved or wrapped-up in its creation.

This process is believed by Hermetists to have a correspondence to the mental process of an artist, writer, or inventor who becomes so wrapped-up (or rapt with) in his mental creation as to almost forget his own existence and who, for the time being, almost lives in his creation.

Attention is really a mental reaching out or extension of mental energy. Should you wish to know more …

Awareness Brings Answers

Published December 27, 2018 by tindertender

Have people become too afraid to be flexible, or not brave enough to show their true selves? This is the energy that creates obstacles, difficulties and drama. There is an abundance of negative energy coming from people pretending to be someone they are not.We see evidence of this truth everywhere we look.

To embrace our strengths, we do not need to hate our opposites, we need to rise above this way of thinking.

Do not be afraid to open up, we are about to pass through a gateway that will bring personal change. This rite of passage is close.

What’s the most loving choice?

Who is the Witness?

Published December 26, 2018 by tindertender

Someone speaks of a witness. I ask, “Who is the Witness?”

“Don’t worry about it”, he says.

There is a female who thinks there is a giant trap and asks, “Has anyone helped this person?”

A male calls me a slut. I ask him, “What do you consider yourself to be? You are an invader, a spy and a traitor … and I am your witness.”

As horrible as circumstances currently are in various places of the world, it is not difficult to be a witness. Observation is one of the easiest things to do, yet many are overwhelmed with outside influences to notice, taking everything personally, getting so entangled they cannot see clearly.

There is a consistent phrase being stated, “She’s stronger than I thought she was.” And I say, “I hope you are not in a position of power for obviously you do not know the art of leadership. You ought to look at every situation/person as though they are strong enough … simple, basic rules that you seem unaware of. But maybe you just got lazy.”

I ask, “What would you like, a chrysalis or a spiders silken thread casing? I do not see you being interested in transformation, so it might have to be the webbed casing.”

If it can be imagined, it will be. They’re all a bunch of ‘no names’, I wonder why? Secrecy, or perhaps they were never given names. One speaks up and says, “Gracie told me all about you.” Aaaahhh, finally, a name spoken, and no, I do not know a Gracie (except for my brothers new puppy).

This is a predominately male group who believes me to be dangerous. One of them is looking forward to the end of the sounds of constant crying.

When I was younger, at a tender age, alcohol was introduced to me. It is incredible how something that tastes so nasty can actually become a habit. I experienced over time a hidden manipulation which produced constant betrayal, despair and anger. These substances make the unseens job much easier, for it breaks down our will and our desire to fight that which intends to cause ruination of life.

There was a time daily living and events were puppeted without me having a conscious understanding. When I broke through the veil (which nearly killed me) I began to see what was actually going on. I could hear them working their plans, they hooked my mind in the attempt to control my actions.

Fortunately, there has been one who has loved me from beyond since the beginning. He sent to me those who assisted in the dissolving of the ‘hooks’ and stood by me as I built strength to overcome the invasive presence. Yes, they are still here, working diligently for the end they desire. And yes, I am their witness.

The odd thing is that although I’ve always been empathic, my senses are more so these days. People do not have to say a word, their energies tell the story far better than mere words could ever portray.

I’ve been in the practice of discerning energies, what is mine, what is being broadcast into my space. I have not been in the practice of searching others energies … only when they are placed in my space. I knew in the past how this felt, although I did not understand what it was … fully. I still do not understand it fully, but this journey I will continue to share with those who wish to read of it.

There will come a time when these skills will be needed, fine tuning is a must. The work is difficult, for transforming negativity is not an easy task, although with practice, it has gotten much easier.

As the energies of the planet shift, so shall the energies of the human, and they will become more conscious and aware of them. They will begin to see what the affects of their past actions and behaviors have had, and are having, on the world in which they live. At this point, there will be a clear choice to continue doing that which causes chaos and harm, or alter actions and words to build a brighter future.

This in no way means to allow others to stampede or break barriers. It means to stand ground for what is righteous and good … there are rules which must be respected, these rules will be enforced. My hope is that those who are hurting will realize that suffering people create suffering, hurt people hurt other people. When they understand this, they will be better able to view their actions and break the cycle, becoming part of the solution rather than adding to the problems we’ve been facing.

It is my belief we are in the end times. The battle is intensifying and while we would rather not be disrupted in our life, we will be … like it or not. It is better to be aware, to firm ourselves up, and prepare for this battle.

When Worlds Collide

Published December 21, 2018 by tindertender

The virus is surrounded by antibodies, it is attacked and usually eliminated. Sometimes, the virus enters, fights back, and wins.

Who is attacking who?

It seems the virus comes in and disrupts the entire organic life system, but it’s just a virus, being a virus.

In the spiritual realms, my previous notion was that the human does something which opens their energetic field, making them susceptible to outside attack. But what if … the human energetic field opens up and the person then enters another realm, or realms. Those that dwell there take note, and check out the new life form. When they realize this new life form isn’t a good fit for their environment, they do what they can to expel the newcomer. It looks like an attack, when in actuality, it is an act of preservation.

Again I ask, Who is attacking who?

Who has entered another planetary level, perhaps mistakenly, and experienced this energetic, spiritual upheaval?

All this time I thought it was people who were under attack, when it looks as though it could be they who disrupted the balance they once had … through substance use, through deep, and severe levels of meditation … whatever was used to open the mind.

Higher realm to the right, lower realm to the left. I stand in a higher realm than those to the left, yet I am in a lower realm than those to the right. I ask myself, why would anyone want to step down into the lower realms? Is it a coerced, subconscious action? Or …

Is my body here at center with one foot in the lower and one foot in the higher? There is obvious connection to both. Is it ‘left and right’, or is it ‘above and below’?

Male and female to the left never move to the right. Males to the right never move to the left. The boy child moves between the two.

The Key ~ the key which they to the left seem to be looking for … there is none. The ‘lock’ that holds them in place is the same ‘lock’ that hold humanity in their respective positions. It is the energies they carry. When people change their mind, their conscious creation shifts and they find that their circumstances change.

“The Key” is simple, yet most will never do it, that which is necessary. There is no one to blame but the self. Responsibility must be claimed, only then is a shift possible.

It seems these others do not know who I am, which means they must not have access to the akashic record. So … is the akashic record real? Does the akashic record hold mention of the past only? Or is there a presence of the future as well?

How does one help create change from the inside of something? Once there, it seems the closeness of it makes it difficult to see what must be done. What is this alteration needing accomplished, and how to do it … from here. Just like that ‘virus’ and that ‘cell’ battling it out.

Who is invading who? It could be all of it. It could be none of it. It could be some of it. It’s a mystery. Spontaneously created, shifting constantly. Every moment a new scenario arrives and concludes, sparking new paths not known in existence before. Just like the neurons of the brain.

Who is this one who “lets socialism help”? What kind of wheels does he have turning? “Curiosity killed the cat, go to sleep Leo”, (which I soon did). I ask myself why I need to figure this out, why can’t I just say, “I release the need to figure this out and will just let it ‘be’.

The more I look into it, I find that ‘everything’ takes me in a circle … every thought, every scenario. It could have been done on purpose, it could have been by chance. There are NO solid constants, everything is in flux, fluidity in motion.

I have wandered, I have wondered. I have staggered, I have stuttered. Is it still possible for you to understand me?

Like A Phoenix

Like a phoenix,
be willing to burn up in the ashes of the little
self so the true Self can fly free.
Consider how many lifetimes it’s taken you to
become tired of this drama you’ve projected and
see that others may not be ready to give it up yet.
Understand that at one time,
you were not who you are today.
Extend the mercy of that understanding to others.
Know that while your love is growing others are
becoming mired more deeply in fear and hate.
Be compassionate. Rather than growing,

it’s more accurate to say that we are removing
everything that has been hiding our natural glory.
Change/growth means constantly becoming
more in tune with your true Self;
polishing the diamond that you already
are so your sparkle can be seen.

Love Story

Published December 16, 2018 by tindertender

There once was a woman who loved a man, and he loved her also … both of their hearts intertwined.

The woman was desired by a wealthy man, she new her ‘family’ relied upon her willingly allowing this man to ‘possess’ her, otherwise he made it clear he would ruin them.

One wishing to love her mightily, the other swore to ‘make her famous’ and have a comfortable life.

The wealthy man vowed to have the other man killed should she decide to be with him, so in order to save his life, she had to make him believe she did not love him, and actually preferred the wealthy man. Of course, he did not understand this and became angry.

In the end, she made it clear to the young lover and to all others that her love for him was still quite strong, and she chose love over possessions … having them, and being one.

Unfortunately, she died, and the young man was broken hearted … but knowing she loved him, and he she … rather than being an angry, bitter man.

Love ~ it is the most wonderful thing this world has to offer us, even if only for a short time. It would be wise to build upon the base offered, growing love, rather than swimming in sadness and anger that arises at the loss of it.

Love ~ it often morphs into friendship … which is better than becoming enemies.

May each and every one of you reading this remember what drew you into love, and that which nurtured it. Should it be torn from you, may you release anger or sadness, and work on building love once more … love of self, of others, and yes … even those who have decided they no longer wish to be part of your life.

What Is Your Breaking Point?

Published December 9, 2018 by tindertender

What is your breaking point?

What have you done when you’ve arrived there?

My breaking point came a few times in this life. The last one actually nearly cost my physical life, it surely did cause a ‘rebirth’ in my spiritual life, and a complete shift in the way I think and live.

Strength is born out of these times, when the world seems to crash down on our heads. It isn’t uncommon for a person to fall, then swim in the affects of previous actions. It can seem like drowning, dying, or make us wish we would, and sometimes that is exactly what happens.

For those times a person is able to crawl out of that deep well into the light of day once more they will find that a portion of them is left behind. That portion of them which caused the fall in the first place is shed, and newness is birthed to fill the space left from its removal.

Falling enough times, or falling so deep, and then the fight that ensues to come back to light, is indeed a rebirth … you may not even recognize yourself. You may find that many others will tell you, “This isn’t the you I remember.” Embrace it … especially if the layers of pain, which perpetuated pain I this world, are left behind.

Be bold in the creation of a new you … society no longer dictates who you will be … YOU do. This is your story now.
