My research continues into the realm of practical mysticism. This journey speaks to the Hermetic maxim: As above, so below; as within, so without; as the universe, so the soul, attributed to Hermes Trismegistus ("thrice great", due to having attained knowledge of the physical, mental, and spiritual planes). The Hermetic perspective embraces the messages of Astrology, Alchemy, and Magic used to infuse earthly experience with the higher vibrations of Spirit, Soul, Body; Sun, Moon, Earth-Ascendant. As Rudhyar states, Wholeness is the integrating principle. An excerpt from Hermes' THE EMERALD TABLET (Operation of the Sun) can be found below:
That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing. And just as all things have come from this One Thing, through the meditation of One Mind, so do all created things originate from this One Thing, through transformation.
