“The key to these Higher worlds is within you.
Open the gate way within you, and surely you will live a true life!”
HERMES TRISMEGISTUS – the image of the highest embodiment of God on Earth. In translation Trismegistus means Thrice Greatest (beginning of the 1st century AD).
Hermes took up the position that behind the diverse of nature’s phenomena lies the Unified Essence, called the Harmony of the Universal Mind. There is a concordance between man and Cosmos, which can be expressed by the formula: “Microcosm is similar to Macrocosm,” it means that man is the key to the Universe. A man, who cleared of power over himself of his lower nature, is able to learn the secrets of the Universe. The idea of limitlessness possibilities of humanity is the whole teaching of Hermes Trismegistus.
Hermeticism became the innermost grain of spirituality and religion of the Egyptians. According to Platon, Hermes discovered numbers, geometry, astronomy, and letters. The knowledge given by Hermes was so innermost that the initiates hid them with a triple veil of secrecy. Hermes is the central Sun of the secret, hidden sciences, whose rays illuminated the countless teachings that arose later.
