An appreciation of Hermeticism, as the basis of all paranormal philosophies still studied today, is an absolute must for anyone fascinated by magic, the supernatural, and the wisdom of the ancients.

    Story
    "The All is Mind. The Universe is Mental."

    This is a collection of the 7 fundamental laws of our reality, defines how we are able to use higher laws to cancel lower, set our own emotional polarity, as well as how polarization works in others. I have listened to this audiobook, at length, two score times and I continue to learn from it. This is, without doubt, the main key for those interested in Hermetic wisdom. One will be able to read sacred text with the 'light of ancient Egypt', as it is termed within. This book is the reason I have Audible. Have a fine day!

    "Big bites of ancient (now age?) wisdom to chew on"

    This book covers a lot of territory - consciousness, dimensions, physics, science, nature, natural law (Universe, Earth, Human), behavior, mental abilities, responsibility, integrity, and much more.

    For someone interested in spiritual development, there's food for thought here. Strangely, I wasn't expecting so much that is relevant today in physics and science to be part of ancient teachings. Interesting.

    "horrible narrator"
    Would you listen to The Kybalion again? Why?

    The narrator kept yawning during this book. Whatever he's being paid it's too much! Otherwise a lot of interesting stuff.

    Story
    "Useful but a bit misleading to neophytes"
    Any additional comments?

    This echoes the ancient realizations of the sages from around the globe. To me it feels like a blend of Taoism and Buddhism and I often found myself thinking that one would be better to take up the Buddhist practice instead because it's a much more fleshed out system but I must admit to being partial on this matter. This could serve as a good nudge in a right direction as far as awareness of what the mind is and how it functions and how it is malleable. However, as in much of spirituality, there runs the risk of the new comer being confused and stuck in "seeking" mode, and some naive ones may very well misinterpret what is meant by "all is mind", I assure you, you won't be levitating or bending spoons but you might stumble onto a new perspective which opens the gate that leads to a gateless gate.

    "worth every minute of your you spend listening"

    If you are only going to read 1 book this year, this would be the book to read. Worth every minute spent listen.

    "Interesting stuff"

    If you're interested in occult or mystical teachings then you should find this audiobook really interesting without being as dense and inaccessible to the layman as something by the likes of Crowley which requires a lot of prior study and understanding before you even begin to have an idea of what's being said.
    This is, on the surface, simple enough, but will reward deeper study. I bought the Kindle version on a whim, because it was only 46p and I was enjoying it so added the Audible narration. Listened to it over a couple of days driving around at work and really enjoyed it. Some of the ideas might be dated, but since we're talking about apparent source material that comes from Ancient Egypt I don't think 'dated' is that much of a problem.
    If you fancy a change from audio stories you might enjoy this. I certainly did.

    "How ever old it is; it seems quantum mechanics"

    Quantum mechanics. And also if true and that old; how did they know that. The 1920s is when quantum mechanics became the game changer about ourselves and reality


    What did you like best about this story?

    As above so below


    Have you listened to any of Mitch Horowitz’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    no


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Its quantum mechanics man


    Any additional comments?

    no
