Spiritual Enlightenment: The Kybalion Master-Key


All around us life is forever in motion.

Everything happens like clockwork, unfailing, and fittingly.

Like the cogs in a clock everything in the Universe moves rhythmically.

The Kybalion tells you exact why and it was written over 100 years ago.

I read the Kybalion in 2014, when I was shedding old religious beliefs. The book speaks of the ancient Hermetic doctrine that has been the foundation of all Religion.

Hermiticism is older than civilization itself and The Kybalion is an introduction to the core doctrine.

This book changed my spiritual life in ways the bible never could. Everything in the Kybalion is spelled out. The only issue is its the most hyper-dense 97 pages you will find anywhere.

You will need to read it many times to understand it. You have to read the whole book or you will have only a pinhole view.

Read it with an open mind and you will know by instinct that the book is the real deal.

The Secrets of Creation are Obvious


This goes without saying: the answer is right in front of you.

All the Kybalion does is point out the obvious.

All things you take for granted but….

They’re so obvious.

So obvious that they hit you in the face and you have no idea.

What Hermeticism Is…


Info Galactic: Hermeticism, also called Hermetism,[1][2] is a religious, philosophical, and esoteric tradition based primarily upon writings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus (“Thrice Great”).[3] These writings have greatly influenced the Western esoteric tradition and were considered to be of great importance during both the Renaissance[4] and the Reformation.[5] The tradition claims descent from a prisca theologia, a doctrine that affirms the existence of a single, true theology that is present in all religions and that was given by God to man in antiquity.[6][7]

You will notice quickly that the principles of Hermeticism are present everywhere in modern thought, religion and philosophy. Everywhere you look, you will see these ancient principles.

Hermetic Principles (Divine Laws)


  1. The Principle of Mentalism
  2. The Principle of Correspondence
  3. The Principle of Vibration
  4. The Principle of Polarity
  5. The Principle of Rhythm
  6. The Principle of Cause and Effect
  7. The Principle of Gender

I will now briefly explain using the book and my own words what each of these principles mean.




The Universe is entirely mental, everything you see isn’t real…its all a simulation within THE ALL.

THE ALL is everything there is and can be, every world, dimension, universe is contained within.

You cannot contemplate it nor comprehend it, you are only allowed to accept it.

Everything has existence in the mind of THE ALL. THE ALL goes by several other names such as GOD, THE COSMIC, and INFINITE INTELLIGENCE.


When the Ancients were writing about ALCHEMY and MAGIC. They were speaking of a mostly mental transmutation, not necessarily the transmutation of certain metals into gold.

The Philosophers Stone is actually….I digress. I’ll save that for another time.

Everything is mental, everything starts in the mind. This is the Master-Key to becoming the next Buddha. Not kidding here. Just remember that every religious figure were spiritual masters for a reason. They had such mastery of the mental plane they could manifest it on the physical plane.

Unless you are Jesus or close you probably will not turn water into wine but you will be able to see and do things that will seem like magic.

I’ve had dreams that have predicted the future. I recently had one that predicted the future death of a person. Scared the hell out of me!

Keep Mentalism in mind…we will come back to it later.




As above, so below.

As below, so above.

The Universe has three great planes:

  1. The Great Physical Plane
  2. The Great Mental Plane
  3. The Great Spiritual Plane

Each plane has 7 sub-planes. This is where it can get very complicated in a hurry. I recommend you read or at least look at the diagrams of Max Heindl’s Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception.

The planes are, as the Kybalion says, arbitrary. They are divided this way to make it easier for our puny mortal minds to grasp the universe.

Remember that all the planes are of the same spiritual substance and are just different manifestations of spirit.

All the planes bleed into each other and have no clear boundaries; beginning or end. This is why you cannot ever hope to figure everything out with Science alone. There will always be phenomena from the spiritual or mental planes that will affect the physical plane.

Think of all the planes as different degrees of spirit: Arch-Angels being the highest and men being the lowest.

There’s a Fourth Dimension called Vibration. Dimension-V determines the spiritual frequency of any object or being. In order to see the supernatural you need to raise your vibration through meditation, yoga, or DMT.

On the Spiritual Plane reside the Gods, Demi-Gods, Archangels,

And the men and women that achieved enlightenment: The Masters and The Adepts. Think Comte St. Germain and Francis Bacon.

If all this seems too crazy for you, remember the biblical stories in the Old Testament and you will see the Law of Correspondence in action there.




“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.” ~The Kybalion

The Law of Vibration is really the Law of Motion everything moves.

Everything moves in a circle…electrons, atoms, planets, Suns.

Everything moves and everything follows this pattern.

Objects such as electrons, move so fast that it appears they are at rest when its just the opposite. On another note when a wheel turns you may not here a sound but when it spins at high enough RPM’s it will make a low growl of a sound.

This is wear the “Sacred Sounds” such as OM come from. When you saw OOOMMMMMMMM out loud it brings the mind to a peaceful state. This is because it raises your vibration.

Music is powerful because music RAISES YOUR VIBRATION. The right kind music is extremely powerful for this reason.

The spectrum this law covers is everything from lowly men, to electricity, to dark matter, to Archangels.

At every point you will notice that we are speaking of the same substance, only at different vibrations.

Consider the title “Think and Grow Rich”, this is a sort of mental manifestation. You are using the vibrations from your thoughts to manifest your reality. You do this everyday unconsciously, Napoleon Hill teaches you to do it consciously so that you can manifest prosperity in your life.

This is called “Mental Transmutation”…see that? We circled right back to Mentalism. Remember that the Universe is MENTAL.


Much more can be said about this extremely powerful law but I will leave you with this…

“He who understands the Principle of Vibration, has grasped the scepter of Power” ~Unknown Hermetic Writer



“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same…all paradoxes may be reconciled.” – The Kyballion

Good and Evil, Light and Dark, Red and Blue, Black and White

All are different degrees of the exact same thing. The VIBRATION is different.

Polarity is simply the recognition that you have a Positive Pole and a Negative Pole. The Universe tends to favor the positive pole slightly and so it has a higher vibration, consider these:

Courage and Fear

Happiness and Sadness

Heat and Cold

Love and Hate

Angels and Demons

The former is positive, the latter is negative.

At any point Love can be transmuted into Hate and hate into love but you cannot change Hate into fear. You can only transmute two poles along the same line.

There are infinite lines like the ones I listed. You can perform this Mental Transmutation by experience of the extremes.

To illustrate an example, Mystery School students were often put in brutal situations where they were helpless and thought death was imminent.

Once they accepted death, they overcame the fear of death and no longer were controlled by it. They achieved a self-mastery very few have by having the Polarity of their mental states FORCIBLY changed.

Now maybe you don’t want to go that far but think about it: when you experience  harrowing and brutal situations in life where you felt fear, you come out strong because your poles shifted.

Your point of reference the Pole has been shifted and you found out how to shift your Mindset (or Polarity).

You can also shift Mental Polarity by following the book Gorilla Mindset.

Knowledge of Polarity is the key to solving many of life’s seeming paradoxes and mysteries. It’s what makes Transmutation, of any sort, possible.




Everything that happens can be equated to pendulum swings.

When you have one you must lack the other. When you are happy you must swing back to sadness. When it’s hot eventually it has to be cold.

This doesn’t mean swinging into extremes necessarily but every action must have an equal and opposite reaction.

When you drive fast you have less control than if you drive slow. You give up some control to go fast. This is immutable.

Essentially, this is swinging between the positive and negative poles that we just discussed. THE ALL achieves balance by maintaining Rhythm between the Poles.


You can however, side-step the effects of the negative swings by raising the vibrations of your consciousness. This is called the Law of Neutralization. 

The Masters side-step the effects of the negative swings by raising their consciousness. Raising the Ego so that the negative swing doesn’t drag them down. Its like avoiding a sword fight because you have wings and can fly while your aggressor is land-locked.

You will always experience a positive followed by a negative, the key is to neutralize the negative so that the mind only “sees” the positive.

That is perhaps the one True Key to Self-Mastery.

There is also a Law of Compensation or what people usually refer to as “Karma”. You must always pay the price. To gain you must give.

To do wrong to a man is to pay a similar price later on. If you get away with murder in this life, you suffer in the next.

Life is an endless cycle of Death and Rebirth. Mother Nature will receive her recompense forever and always.





“It is all Cause and Effect you see” ~The Merovingian




Everywhere you look you see the consequence of the Law of Cause and Effect. The Grand Canyon was once a tiny stream, a village becomes a city.

A seed, cradled by the earth, becomes a mighty tree and returns to the earth again.

Everywhere you see the Law of Cause and Effect in action.

The Law means that there can be no such thing as Chance, chance would mean there is no rhyme, reason or meaning behind an event.

If you have read this far then you know this is entirely false.

The dirt on the ground in Nowhere, Illinois was once part of a building erected in the name of Julius Caesar in Rome 2000 years ago.

Your life up to this point has been a chain of events. Every event had a moment that carried you to this point. Nothing is happening by accident. Nothing.

Events do not create events; events are linked to each other. One follows another in swift succession. This is why small habits like waking up to work-out or writing everyday will have a massive impact over-time.

People make the mistake of thinking that life happens to them but thats a farce. They made life happen to them through their willful ignorance and passivity.

The Masters can use the Laws to bend reality to their will.

There is much more to this Law but alas, you must read the Kybalion and find the answer in motion.



The creation of all things is the result of Gender.

Gender is simply: procreation, creation, affinity, magnetism, and attraction.

Everywhere you see these and like phenomena the Law of Gender is in action. Certain chemicals have an affinity for other chemicals, certain people work well together, man and woman have child.

Male = Positive / Female = Cathode

Why cathode? Why not just say Negative? Because negative has lowly conations. There’s nothing negative about it just “opposite”

Male and Female are opposite energies that are extremely powerful if you can harness them. Which leads me to…



I said the Universe was mental didn’t I?

You have an Objective Mind and a Subjective Mind.

I and Me.

Masculine and Feminine.

The “I” is, to put it simply, is your WILL.

The “Me” is what others can see and is either the manifestation of your will or the will of others.

Recognition of these two dual minds is what separates the real men and women from the sheep.

Of course the Kybalion goes into great detail, its a lot to swallow.

You will need to read the book to fill in the details.




The Kybalion is the Master-Key to understanding not only the Religion and the Occult but life itself.

Once you read it, you will see the Hermetic Principles in every area of life without fail.

The book is only 97 pages but its a hyper-dense 97 pages.

It took me 3 years to understand it. There are many secrets I now understand because of the Kybalion that I haven’t written about here.

Revealing them wouldn’t make a lot of sense, you will gain far more value in just reading the book yourself and reading other works. Once you read this and other books you will start to form powerful and irrefutable connections about life and the divine.

The Kybalion is the Master-Key; the gateway into a true understanding of what we call God’s Creation.

Whether you believe in one God, no God, or many is irrelevant.

Everything I just said here is immutable and verifiable.

Why don’t you go see for yourself?

You can only find the answer in motion.

Embrace the Causation and events soon to follow.


Marcus Harris

P.S. Gorilla Mindset and New World Ronin are great books because they both follow the Divine Laws and show you how to manifest your own reality. The Kybalion describes the laws these two books apply in great detail.

    Amazing article-you were able to sum up very esoteric concepts nicely…as “layman” as possible.
    Having gravitated towards the philosophy and mysticism of the East, it’s easy to see the parallels–the underlying principles that serve as the eternal foundation. Having a glimpse of these, it’s easy to see that modern “culture” has been constructed in such a way as to keep people completely blind to this knowledge.
    The only thing that has kind of kept me from further study into Western Occultism are concepts like the various 7 planes you mentioned and the depiction of the Tree of Life…concepts that, to me, seemed slightly too scrupulous and complicated. But I’m going to check out the Kybalion.
    Thanks for the great work.

      No problem Chris, it takes time to assimilate all the concepts I just described. I mentioned it took 3 years for me to grasp the principles and I’m thinking it will take a few more years of study, I’m also a Freemason and Rosicrucian. In the future I will go over some books to read if you want to pursue the study of Western Esotericism further. For now, the Kyballion and Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception will keep you busy for quite a while. Hell, I haven’t even finished Cosmo-Conception myself yet, I learned a ton just from the illustrations.
