5.0 out of 5 stars Seven universal principles - seven laws of nature
A number of other books has been written about these seven principles, using somewhat more modern language, but this book is the classic. This is not just a theory or a philosophy - the principles, being universal, are down-to-earth practical. If you apply them consciously in your life, your life will change.

While in times long gone by, these may have seemed...

3.0 out of 5 stars A strange little book!
I came accross this book accidentally - or it came accross me, with an existing interest in philosophy & non-dualism.

Many of the ideas contained in the book are similar to those found in New Age reading and Eastern philosophy; everything in motion, opposites, vibration, you are not the body. There are also some very great differences,and the book is aimed at...

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money, 17 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Kybalion is new age waffle and not even decent hermeticism.

The book is peppered with quotes and references to 'The Kybalion', but is not that text.

Instead we get a supposed enlightened explication from 'Initiates' which is merely philosophical drivel of the most optimistic kind.

Almost any other purchase or self-help book would serve you better than this, try a true hermetic text, such as the Divine Pymander or something by Wynn Westcott or Thomas Taylor if you are in the mood for the neoplatonic.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun romp through Neoplatonism, 16 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a cute little book and requires only a couple of hours to race through. A psychedelic romp through neo-Platonism. Easy to digest and highly unoriginal. Its clear. concise and didactic in that it repeats the main themes throughout. I liked the way it is written. If anything lets it down it is the requirement for the reader to suspend belief, rather like reading the Da Vinci Code, you have to realise this a fiction, although I would say this is definitely a more beautiful myth, and one worthy of sustaining a certain world view, as it is positive rather than negative like the DVC. It is much, much better than its more recent imitators such as The Secret, and provides a metaphysical underpinning of some sort that the imitators fail to provide in a reasoned order, (despite the three initiates avowals that metaphysics is not their concern, it is a metaphysics). Is it practical for the aspiring neo-Platonist or Hermeticist? No, there are no exercises, formulas, affirmations; although it is obvious that this is where the authors would have taken the book, had they wished to write a lengthy manual of Hermeticism. Thankfully they did not and therefore I enjoyed this book, even if I disagree with its contents profoundly

4.0 out of 5 stars The Kybalion, 4 Feb 2009
This review is from: The Kybalion: A Study of The Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt and Greece (Paperback)
This is a useful book for those who have the time and patience to work with it in a concentrated and serious way. It is clearly presented, and fairly easy to follow, but an unprejudiced background in esoteric knowledge is helpful to take the indications further and turn them into practices useful in daily life. The true seeker will look for other guides to supplement the wisdom contained here.
