This article was based in the “great work” (Alchemical work) of Mark Passio(1)
Law means an existing condition which is binding (it means it has an effect) and immutable and Natural means having a basis in nature. Nature is a word coming from NETER (Egyptian) which means spirit. Natural law was not made by mankind.
People believe that the spiritual domain is separated of the physical domain. This is a mistake based on brain imbalance. The spiritual domain is not other than the physical domain, none is more important than the other.
Natural means spirit. It is present. Natural law is a body of Universal Spiritual laws which act as the governing dynamics of Consciousness. We are all part of nature, even if we live in a big city.
“Man is part of nature.” As K. Lyall Watson says in “The Tide of Life”: “Each of us is a mobile museum. The fluids that enclose our bodies are a perfect copy of the ancient sea, where we enjoyed our independence, after our release from the clay. The concentration of sodium, potassium, and chloride in our blood, the cobalt, magnesium, and zinc in our tissues, are all the same as when they first prevailed in the original Ocean. We still carry this ocean within us, bound forever as a living fossil. And within each little inland sea the same old struggle is going on, as it was three billion years ago. Competitions, alliances, total wars are constantly taking place between the factions of organic compositions, and only those possessing greater physical strength or intelligence, the most persistent chemical cohesion, survive”(2)
“Watson conceived of the biological unconscious as a hidden web that interlinks all living beings. According to this theory, every organism, from the most rudimentary to the most complex, is a fragment of this vast, interconnected network. This invisible force dictates their behavior and evolution, steering the tide of life in a predetermined direction. His idea bears similarities with Rupert Sheldrake’s concept of Morphic-Resonance, which suggests that natural systems inherit a collective memory from all previous things of their kind.” (3)
The Kybalion and the Emerald Tablet
Hermetism is the equivalent of Natural Law; is a philosophical and religious system based on the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus (a Hellenistic conflation of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth). These teachings are contained in the various writings attributed to Hermes (the Hermetica), which were produced over a period spanning many centuries (c. 300 BCE – 1200 CE) and may be very different in content and scope.(4)
It has seven basic principles:
1-The principle of mentalism
The all is mind. The universal is mental- thoughts lead to the manifestation of things and events. Thoughts create our state of existence and the quality of our experience here on earth. Therefore, be responsible for everything you create by being responsible for everything that you think. The creator of “Anthroposophy”, Rudolf Steiner and Medium Edgar Cayce also stated that “thoughts are things”. Be careful with what you think.
2- The principle of correspondence or “as Above, So below”
That which is above is the Macrocosm and that which is below is the Microcosm. The universe is holographic; it is self-similar across all scales. Like the atoms and the planets. The universe is fractal in nature. You keep seeing the same pattern, like the Fibonacci sequence.
“In mathematics, the Fibonacci sequence is a sequence in which each number is the sum of the two preceding ones. Numbers that are part of the Fibonacci sequence are known as Fibonacci numbers, commonly denoted Fn” (6)
3 – The principle of vibration
Nothing rests; everything moves, everything vibrates. – The Kybalion
At the most fundamental level, the universe and everything which comprises it, is pure vibratory energy manifesting itself in different ways. The Universe has no solidity, as such. Matter is merely energy in a state of vibration and Quantum Physics can prove it.
Death is an illusion. There is nothing in nature which is in a complete rest.
4- The principle of Polarity
Everything is dual. Everything has poles (Mesmer proved it). Everything has its pairs of opposites. Opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree. Extremes meet and blend into each other. All paradoxes may be, at some level, reconciled; (male-female, Hot and cold, light and dark, Good and bad, knowledge and ignorance, white and black, yang and yang).
At the fundamental level they are the same thing. Cold is the absence of hot, etc… At the unified field level, everything is consciousness, however at our level, there are differences in consciousness, there are things that we need to separate and rectify, because it does matter. In the physical domain, we need to have our feet on the ground.
5 – 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
The book of Lyall Watson, “Life Tide”, explains the consequences of this law. “Life tide” introduces a different perspective: that evolution is not entirely random, but rather orchestrated by this unseen force. This could provide a fresh context for interpreting certain evolutionary leaps, such as the emergence of consciousness in humans, that can’t be fully explained through natural selection alone.”(7)
6 – 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.
There is free will but it acts within the parameters of Natural Law. Karma finds itself in this law. The effect does not happen, always, immediately, there is a time lag or gap, between the cause and effect. That is why it is difficult to recognize it.
Mark Passio explains that Karmic consequence is more complicated than all of that. What it’s happening nowadays is: we are all experiencing, in the aggregate; the wrongs that the human species is conducting on a daily basis which we do not attempt to rectify and stop. Through our inaction, Karma is being accrued. Karma can be accrued from inaction as well.
7 – The principle of Gender
Gender is in everything. Everything has its masculine and feminine aspects/principles. Gender manifests on all planes of existence. – Kybalion
Gender manifests in all planes of existence. The mental gender is the state of co-existence between the feminine and masculine aspects of the mind. It is in the feminine side of brain that Animal Communication is exerted.
It is important for the student of holistic medicine, Meddiumship, Remote Viewing and any spiritual subject to understand and respect Natural law; and not only students, but basically everyone. The world is in this mess because humans do not pay attention to Natural Law, brought to us by the Hermes Trismegistus.
Thank you to Mark Passio for his fantastic work in the world of Occultism and Alchemy- the great work. Keep sharing the truth
