Présentation de l'éditeur

Before there was The Secret, there was The Kybalion. The entire framework for The Law of Attraction is detailed in depth. One of the Three Initiates is said to have been William Walker Atkinson, whose 1906 book Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World, can be credited as the basis for the teachings of The Secret's Law of Attraction. This edition contains the following appendices: History of the Kybalion (an original essay); The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trigmegistus (background to some of the concepts of the Kybalion).

Biographie de l'auteur

The most common theory is that The Kybalion was authored by William Walker Atkinson, either alone or with others, such as Paul Foster Case and Elias Gewurz. Atkinson was known to use many pseudonyms, and to self-publish his works. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

HASH(0x925d490c) étoiles sur 5 A key book in understanding Hermetic Philosophy 29 août 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The Kybalion, originally published in 1912, is a short volume (223 pages, 7.5" x 5" hardcover) that presents, with commentary, the basic Hermetic principles. The author(s) of the book are anonymous.
Chapter 1 provides background on Hermetic philosophy, and describes the overall purpose of this book: "In the early days, there was a compilation of certain Basic Hermetic Doctrines, passed on from teacher to student, which was known as 'THE KYBALION,' the exact significance and meaning of the term having been lost for several centuries. This teaching, however, is known to many to whom it has descended, from mouth to ear, throughout the centuries. Its precepts have never been written down, nor printed, as far as we know. It was merely a collection of maxims, axioms, and precepts, which were non-understandable to outsiders, but which were readily understood by students, after the axioms, maxims, and precepts had been explained and exemplified by the Hermetic Initiates to their Neophytes ... We herein give you many of the maxims, axioms and precepts of THE KYBALION, accompanied by explanations and illustrations which we deem likely to render the teachings more easily comprehended by the modern student, particularly as the original text is purposely veiled in obscure terms." (Note: as is common in many books of this era, the author(s) make extensive use of what today would be considered non-standard capitalization and punctuation.)
The Hermetic principles, familiar to any who have done basic readings in western esoteric philosophy, are outlined and then examined in depth. (For those not familiar with them, the principles include such ideas as "As above, so below; as below, so above," "opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree," "nothing rests, everything moves," "the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left," "every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized," "the universe is mental, held in the mind of The All," and "the Laws governing the nature of the universe can be used to transmute the undesireable into what is worthy.")
Quotations taken from the source material ("The Kybalion") are given, and then explained very clearly.
The chapters are as follows: 1. Hermetic Philosophy 2. Seven Hermetic Principles 3. Mental Transmutation 4. The All 5. The Mental Universe 6. The Divine Parodox 7. "The All" in All 8. Planes of Correspondence 9. Vibration 10. Polarity 11. Rhythm 12. Causation 13. Gender 14. Mental Gender 15. Hermetic Axioms.
Whether or not you agree with Hermeticism, this book and/or the material from the original "Kybalion" served as important source material for many of the key Hermetic writers of the 20th and late 19th centuries. This book should be included in the library of anyone seriously interested in western esoteric philosophy.

HASH(0x925d4d5c) étoiles sur 5 Seven Universal Principles - Seven Laws of Nature 27 octobre 2004
Par Laura De Giorgio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A number of other books has been written about these seven principles, using somewhat more modern language, but this book is the classic. This is not just a theory or a philosophy - the principles, being universal, are down-to-earth practical. If you apply them consciously in your life, your life will change.

While in times long gone by, these may have seemed to be only arbitrary spiritual principles, they are in accord with the view of quantum physics. Kybalion states that universe is mind-like in nature; quantum physics states that the universe is composed out of intelligent energy. The rest of the book describes how to manifest anything with one's thoughts - the process of manifestation, and it reminds me of the book "Dimensional Structure of Consciousness" by Samuel Avery.

The most important part of this book - other than pointing out these principles is that they are UNIVERSAL - they allways work, they express throughout nature and if you use them and apply the consciously, you can create whatever you can possibly desire in your life. You will know then that there is a law and that it works with mathematical precision, and that you can ALWAYS count on it.

The moment you grasp this truth, you will never ever again wish or hope for something to happen, you will know that you have the power to create it and you will be certain of it. And when you use this principles consciously and experience the truth of them - no one in the entire world will ever be able to talk you out of fulfilling your heart's desires. Even if the entire world doubts and laughs at you, you will not care because you'll KNOW that you CAN. You will have the "key".

HASH(0x925d4d8c) étoiles sur 5 Concise summary of timeless spiritual principles 25 août 2002
Par Lleu Christopher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Along with the Tao Teh Ching, this little book first published by the Yogi Publication Society in 1912, is one of the most complete and concise spiritual texts ever written. Many critics have criticized the Kybalion's lack of "authenticity." The teachings are allegedly taken from an ancient Egpytian teacher or demi-god named Hermes Trismegistus. Scholars, on the other hand, mainly believe that the Hermetic movement was really born in the Greek era. None of this in any way detracts from the value of this work. The true Hermes has always been a trickster god who blurs the distinction between history and mythology, so if you want real knowledge it's far preferable to leave the dry scholarship to the scholars and focus on the principles. Another criticism posed by those who don't understand such matters is that the material contained in the Kybalion is really from other traditions, such as Far Eastern. The true understanding of Hermetic philosophy is that truth is truth and it all comes from the same basic source. It follows from this that beliefs from one part of the world will be duplicated elsewhere. Debates concerning origins are very important in the fields of history, anthropology and archeology. To those on a quest for spiritual knowledge they are meaningless. I won't go through the list of seven principles contained in the Kybalion, but the primary ideas are quite simple, yet at the same time paradoxical. The universe is ultimately One, but that oneness manifests itself in duality. This is identical in essence to the Chinese idea that the Tao expresses itself through Yin and Yang. This duality creates a world where things are always moving from one extreme to the other, or Polarity as the Kybalion describes it. Perhaps the most important principle to keep in mind is that all opposites are really one. Apply this rather abstract notion to worldly matters such as politics and war and you will see the wisdom of it. This is a book worth reading many times.

HASH(0x925de0a8) étoiles sur 5 Ancient Universal Wisdom, Or Early 20th Century "New Age" Fluff? 22 février 2012
Par Ken Korczak - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
If you're wondering what the word "Kybalion" really means, it's likely a term cobbled together by the writer, or writers, of this book. It's probably an amalgamation of the word Kabbalah, the ancient school of Hebrew mysticism, and Cybele, the Greek mother goddess.

So this is suggestive that the information is a mixture of wisdom that has come down through the centuries from more than one tradition. That's fitting, as the authors say this information is timeless and universal, and remains fundamentally unchanged no matter what culture or historical period it is filtered through.

The authors also claim that this knowledge was given to the rest of humanity by one man,the ancient Egyptian, HERMES TRISMEGISTUS. Was he a real person? No one really knows, but it's doubtful. At best, most scholars will say he is a "legendary" figure,or perhaps a name which represents a composite of real people who may have existed. The name Hermes Trismegistus is probably derived by combining the name of the Greek god Hermes with the Egyptian god Thoth. Trismegistus itself means "Thrice Knowledgeable." For millennia, Hermes Trismegistus has been associated with what is known as "hermetic knowledge" or the tradition of HERMETICISM.

But now let's get back to who wrote THE KYBALION. We know it was published in 1912. The authors are only identified as "The Three Initiates." No one knows for absolute sure who the author or authors were, but I would hazard that there is some 95% certainty that it was mostly the work of one man: WILLIAM ATKINSON. He may have had help from a couple of other guys, Paul Case and Elias Gurwurz. (Thus the Three Initiates).

But the primary thrust behind The Kybalion is almost certainly Atkinson. He was a shadowy and mercurial man who is known to have authored at least 100 books similar to this one. He was also an attorney and businessman who seemed to have an unending supply of ambition and energy, not only to produce a huge body of esoteric literature, but also work robustly at a successful legal career. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1862 and died in 1932.

Atkinson and his fellows were the New Agers of their day. They were at the vanguard of something called NEW THOUGHT - which is comparable to what New Age folks are talking about today - and mostly it's a lot of the same stuff. This is the kind of information that has been around for centuries, and probably thousands of years, and it keeps re-emerging and getting recycled time again in a new package in every century and culture.

So does this mean that the information in The Kybalion represents genuine ancient wisdom that is universal, undying and something which we should take seriously? Can it have real application in our daily lives? Is it something we should pay attention to and strive to adopt as part of our own philosophies today? Or is is merely a cheapy pulp document -- one of dozens churned out by by an early 20th Century rascal who had a reputation as an "occultist?"

There's no easy answer to these questions. In a general, my own view is that the information presented in The Kybalion is not necessarily false or useless - or even mere superstition - but at the same time, it does not hurt to approach it all with a certain level of healthy pragmatism, and to ask ourselves: "Okay, so what can I really do with this information, if anything?"

For example, one of the primary tenets of the wisdom of Hermes Trismegistus is that the universe we exist within is a "thought form," or as they put it, "The Principle of Mentalism ... The All Is Mind... The Universe Is Mental."

That would be counter to the most common, scientific mainstream belief today which holds that the universe should be considered fundamentally material -- composed of solid matter -- and that "mental thoughts" are something less definite. Our mental thoughts are only ideas formed or are a reflection of all that solid material stuff out there.

True, even some of today's most hardened scientists might come down somewhere in between pure materialism and a pure "Thought Universe" conception -- especially since the advent of quantum mechanics, which has shown that Isaac Newton's world of classical physics - the billiard ball universe - is not quite as solid, hard or "dead" as we once may have thought it was.

But, anyway, what can we do with this principle today - the idea that we live in a universe that is fundamentally a "mental construct" of some kind?

Well, the implications are many. This idea of mental constructs has generated thousands of New Age books, or greater or lesser quality. Take the recent mega-bestseller "The Secret," for example. This book suggests that anyone can have anything he or she wants - including fabulous wealth - if they only realize that everything is ultimately mental, and that we can shape our own reality with our thoughts.

No doubts, tens of thousands of people who read The Secret gave it their best shot - they tried to visualize and conjure up stacks of cash for themselves, maybe a Cadillac or a new Porsche, or a nice new home - only to find out that these material objects don't seem to materialize quite as readily as the theory suggests they should.

The point is, even if we accept the idea that the universe is "Mental" or just one big thought form - it clearly is not as easy as it seems to act on that knowledge in a way that will improve our lives, or change our lives, at least in terms of material wealth.

This doesn't mean that the idea of purely Mental Universe is worthless - it might even be true! - it just that, what can do we do with that knowledge, and how can it help us, or can it help us change our world for the better? These are questions that are not easy to answer.

So the bottom line is, you can look upon the information in The Kybalion in a variety of different ways. The case can easily be made this document is yet another clever New Age hack job put together by a shadowy figure like William Atkinson as a great way to make money in publishing - or you can make the case that this is truly timeless, universal wisdom that certainly has been reiterated for thousands of years.

The very fact that this kind of information has stood the test of time should not be taken lightly -- it suggests something about the universal mythologies human beings cling to, century after century. (And I use the term mythology loosely). That makes it important.

However: The actual application of this ancient wisdom in a way that can make a real difference in your life is not something that is easily done, even if you understand it intellectually.
