The sixth Hermetic Principle states, “ever cause has an effect, and every effect has its cause”. How does a Gray Mystic interpret the principle of cause and effect? Read more »

Should We Trust our Instincts?

I’ts not good enough to just trust our instincts, as they can be laced with our emotional attachments that are the result from past traumas and limiting patterns of relating. We must trust our process, and our ability to discern the truth through asking the correct questions at the right time. While our emotional attachments can deceive us, our feelings can act as messengers that point us to the truth […] Read more »

Master Yoda vs Dark Yoda

It is the task of the Gray mystic to seek out and confront the dark shadows within themselves, face to face, rather than suppressing them, avoiding them, or denying their existence. Our shadows hold much wisdom in their messages to us, and grant us power, if we will but listen to their voice and shine the light of conscious awareness upon them. A suppressed shadow will always come back to […] Read more »

What is a Grey Jedi?

One thing that many people miss when trying to understand the variations of Jedi is that they are looking at it as a completely fabricated story, and not realizing that they are all a metaphor for ancient and modern mysticism. Looking at their roots within Alchemical Hermeticism, along with Hermes/Thoth and the land of Khem, is therefore important. For example, the Hermeticist Sir Isaac Newton coined the term “the Force” […] Read more »

Thoth is known as the father of Alchemy and of the Egyptian Mystery Schools, […] Read more »

The Trivium’s Evil Twin: Hegel’s Dialectic

As you may already know from other articles we’ve written, the Trivium is a method of critical thinking based in asking questions in a specific cyclical order.  It comprises the first three of the liberal arts of “grammar, logic, and rhetoric”, where liberal stands for “free man“; historically, the liberal arts where not allowed to be taught to slaves, but only to the “free man”.  The Trivium’s order of asking […] Read more »

Light, Dark, Gray, & Hermetic Magic

Star Wars has been a clear metaphor for the tension and battle between the forces of light and those of darkness, where they are the modern fictional versions of the light magicians and the dark sorcerers who both yield the creative forces of nature.  Hidden in the battle between the light and dark sides of this perpetual struggle, has been a small but powerful group of gray/neutral magicians who consciously hold both the light […] Read more »
