Kybalion Quotes: The Seven Hermetic Principles

Last Updated on September 28, 2021

Are you looking for good ideas for you daily meditations? Look no further as these quotes from “The Kybalion” by Three Initiates AKA William Walker Atkinson have plenty to get you on your way. Recently I spent a week meditating on each of the seven hermetic principles in the book. It was well worth my time.

The seven principles complemented my studies of the tarot. Which I doubt is an accident.

The book, out of copyright, is also readily available for download online or purchase at your favorite book seller.

I will do a more thorough introduction to this new version of the Druid Magick blog in the next post. I wanted to get a few Kybalion quotes out to readers as I see plenty of people coming here looking for them.


“The Principles of Truth are Seven; he who knows these, understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose touch all the Doors of the Temple fly open.”–The Kybalion.

The Principle of Mentalism

“THE ALL IS MIND; The Universe is Mental.”–The Kybalion.

The Principle of Correspondence

“As above, so below; as below, so above.”–The Kybalion.

The Principle of Vibration

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

The Principle of Polarity

“Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.”–The Kybalion.

The Principle of Rhythm

“Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”–The Kybalion.

The Principle of Cause and Effect

“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.”–The Kybalion.

The Principle of Gender

“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.”–The Kybalion.
