A fraction of nothing, just beyond your sight, kept from all of you.
Time to open your eyes.
I turn 25, February 23rd. I’ve never read something so timely, so perfectly poigniantly relevant. Thank you mysterious kin-soul. ❤
I turn 25 next month, and it has me thinking. Thinking about where I’ve been, where I am, where I’m going. I’ve made progress, passed through rough seas and rougher shores. I’ve healed old wounds and set to work on others. Even if it flickers, the light shines, and I can feel the next stage of the journey looming on the horizon….

Hold fast now
This is only the opening act
The stage was set
We were cast in parts
Scripts the narrative within
Scores the aethers resonant
Scenes in every moment
We see our being
Crescendo into realization
Every time I hear it
The Seven Hermetic Principles from The Kyballion
I. THE PRINCIPLE OF MENTALISM.
“THE ALL is MIND; The Universe is Mental.” – The Kybalion.
II. THE PRINCIPLE OF CORRESPONDENCE.
“As above, so below; as below, so above.” – The Kybalion
III. THE PRINCIPLE OF VIBRATION.
“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.” – The Kybalion.
IV. THE PRINCIPLE OF POLARITY.
“Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.” – The Kybalion.
V. THE PRINCIPLE OF RHYTHM.
“Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in
everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.” – The Kybalion.
VI. THE PRINCIPLE OF CAUSE AND EFFECT.
“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but
a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.” – The Kybalion.
VII. THE PRINCIPLE OF GENDER.
“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.” – The Kybalion.
When my reality makes giant strides forward, this has usually been the catalyst. What is this life…?!
“Perhaps the greatest faculty our minds possess is the ability to cope with pain. Classic thinking teaches us the four doors of the mind, which everyone moves through according to their need.
First is the door of sleep. Sleep offers us a retreat from the world and all its pain. Sleep marks passing time, giving us distance from the things that have hurt us…This is the mind’s way of protecting itself from pain by stepping through the first door.
Second is the door of forgetting. Some wounds are too deep to heal, or too deep to heal quickly. In addition, many memories are simply painful, and there is no healing to be done. The saying ‘time heals all wounds’ is false. Time heals most wounds. The rest are hidden behind this door.
Third is the door of madness. There are times when the mind is dealt such a blow it hides itself in insanity. While this may not seem beneficial, it is. There are times when reality is nothing but pain, and to escape that pain the mind must leave reality behind.
Last is the door of death. The final resort. Nothing can hurt us after we are dead, or so we have been told.”
