Hermes Trismegistus — The Emerald Tablet

I say here only truth and nothing else!

That which is below is similar to that which is above. And that which is above is similar to that which is below. One has to know this in order to gain the cognition of the marvelous Primordial One!*

Everything material came into existence by the intent of the Primordial One. All material objects became manifest through densification of the energy by the Primordial One.

The Sun* is the Father of the manifested world; the “lunar”* is its mother. The Holy Spirit “brings up” developing souls; the Earth nurtures them. The Father of all the development in the entire universe is present always and everywhere.

His Power is the Supreme Power! It is supreme to everything else! And It is manifested on the Earth — in Its Omnipotence!

Thus you should divide: the earthly — and the Fiery*, the coarse — and the subtle! Act, at that, with great caution, awe, and understanding!

Become the Subtlest Fire — and cognize the Heavenly! Thus you achieve the Mergence. Then come back to the Earth — and you will perceive the Subtlest and will have power to transform effectively the imperfect.

This will mean that you have achieved the glory of Mergence with the Primordial One and rid yourself of the darkness of ignorance.

The Power of the Primordial One is present beneath everything: beneath both the subtlest and the coarse — and controls them. It is in this way that the Creation exists. And thanks to this marvelous connectedness of Everything the development goes on.

This is why My name is Hermes Thriceborn: for I act in all three planes of existence* and possess the wisdom of the entire universe!

Thus I have said everything I wanted to say about the doing of the Sun.
