The Kybalion: A Cornerstone Of Modern Day Hermeticism

The Kybalion: A Cornerstone Of Modern Day Hermeticism

Occasionally I get asked, “What do you believe?”  It’s a natural question seeing as how the majority of people are not familiar with Hermeticism or the Hermetic lore. I sometimes answer very generally.  That we believe in the innate goodness of humanity, the practice of meditation, and the power of the individual.  But sometimes folks want to go deeper.  That is when I refer them to The Kybalion. The Kybalion was written way back in 1908 presumably by William Walker…

Why I Don’t Believe In Death

Why I Don’t Believe In Death

For many death means the end of a relationship.  For those on a Hermetic Path, it means the beginning of a new one. I get some strange looks when I tell people I do not believe in death.  But, in all honesty I do not.  True, the physical body dies.  But, from my past experiences with friends and family members who have passed, the consciousness that makes up the person lives on.  You just have to be open to experiencing…

My Intermittent Fasting Journey.

My Intermittent Fasting Journey.

Last week I had a wake up call. Nothing serious like a heart attack or stroke…not yet anyway. But just a gentle nudge from nature that I needed to take some serious actions concerning my weight and my health. I was feeling unusually tired last week, and I noticed I was gaining weight again. So, I decided to remove coffee and sugar from my diet hoping that would help me turn the tide. I also decided to get into an…

The Case For ExoTheology.

The Case For ExoTheology.

Many of us who were raised in a religious household were taught one fundamental truth which we thought would never change; that in the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth, and finally He created the human race in His own Image and likeness.  As a child of the 1960’s I never thought to question this account of our origins.  But now, as a student of the 21st century, I have begun to think that this childhood notion of…

Correllian Wicca.

Correllian Wicca.

This week I am going to be focusing on Wicca in general and Correllian Wicca in particular. I first learned of Correllian Wicca about 10 years ago from Rev. Don Lewis-Highcorrell. His is a family line of Wicca which was handed down to him by his mother and grandmother. Family lineages in any esoteric field of study are very strong for the seeker as they are derived not out of theory alone, but come out of a living, growing tradition….

Three Styles of Religious/Spiritual Leadership

Three Styles of Religious/Spiritual Leadership

Over the years I have seen several different styles of leadership within religious and spiritual organizations.  I’ve broken these down into 3 main categories which I will list here, each illustrated by a Tarot card.  Not everybody will fit neatly into these categories as most of us are a mixture of different leadership styles.  However a person will tend to favor one style over another, especially during times of stress in which a person will suddenly “default” to their main…

Tarot Card Interpretation: The Fool.

Tarot Card Interpretation: The Fool.

  The Fool can be seen as the adventurer; the pioneer just setting off on a new venture.  In the minds of most people The Fool indicates folly, which is one possible interpretation.  But The Fool can also represent someone who seems foolish on the surface because they do not fear going against the grain of society.  In this light the Wright Brothers could be considered “fools” because they believed so firmly that they could find a way to fly,…
