The purpose of this work is not the enunciation of any special philosophy or doctrine, but rather is to give to the students a statement of the Truth that will serve to reconcile the many bits of occult knowledge that they may have acquired, but which are apparently opposed to each other and which often serve to discourage and disgust the beginner in the study. Our intent is not to erect a new Temple of Knowledge, but rather to place in the hands of the student a master key with which he may open the many inner doors in the Temple of Mystery through the main portals he has already entered.

This book is available in many formats, (mostly free) both audio and epub. Jeff Moon's interpretation is one of the better ones and well worth a look-see.
I was provided a free copy in exchange for a review.
A good listen makes for an amazing day!
The narration was great and the author's intent was captured through this audio masterpiece.
Yes, most definitely!
This review copy audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost."
The greatest works of philosophy I've read.
My favorite portions were the discussions of Effect and Mentalism.
He narrates excellently this great philosophical piece!
This shouldn't be a film but a book that everyone reads at least once in their lives.
The Kybalion supposedly reveals secret knowledge and philosophy passed on through the ages from the Greek god Hermes (or Egyptian god Thoth, if you prefer). It has been secretly passed along until "The Three Initiates" decided to publish it for everyone to see.
It is broken down into seven principles: Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause and Effect, and Gender.
For the most part the book is made up of a whole lot of statements saying how something is ("All is mind", "everything is gendered") with very little evidence or argument to back it up. There is very little in the way of arguing from first principles. Aristotle would be very disappointed.
Despite the claims of being a work of philosophy it isn't. Or it's a very disappointing one at best.
Narration was fine. Clear, and well paced. Easy enough to listen to, and engaging enough to keep my attention.
