The New Hermetics is a powerful spiritual technology of the mind. It is a course of study and practice that teaches the science of illumination and the ability to alter reality. The ancient Egyptian form of Hermetic philosophy was that the mind shapes reality. The New Hermetics extends that philosophy - the universe is a great mind or consciousness, and we are a part of that consciousness; therefore by learning to control the mind, we learn to control our part of the universe. With updated versions of the ancient Rosicrucian brotherhood's 10 levels of initiation, combined with ancient and modern mind-expanding techniques such as visualization and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), The New Hermetics progressively gives initiates power over their minds and world. Practicing these elements simultaneously makes it possible to undergo initiation into the mysteries of consciousness in a fraction of the time it was ever before possible. The course offered in the book lets practitioners master their minds in such a way that they will be able to achieve anything and everything they want in life, spiritually and physically.
The New Hermetics offers 10 levels of instruction to control the mind and control reality: Level 1-The Initiate teaches mastery over behavior and visualization in the Ether.
Level 2-The Zealot bestows mastery over emotions, breathing, and Etheric energy.
Level 3-The Practitioner gives mastery over mind, beliefs, and the ability to project Etheric energy.
Level 4-The Philosopher masters creativity,values, and the ability to direct Etheric energy.
Level 5-The Adept develops relationship with cosmic consciousness.
Level 6-The Advanced Adept offers the power to direct the forces of cosmic consciousness.
Level 7-The Perfect Adept gives wisdom and the ability to share these forces with others.
Level 8-The Master bestows mastery of cosmic consciousness.
Level 9-The Mage gains mastery of universal power.
Level 10-The Ultimate Master obtains mastery over the universal self. The New Hermetics is a powerful course of instruction that can help anyone master themselves to rule their world.

Popular passages

Page 4 - Mind 1. Hermes: The Mind, O Tat, is of God's very essence - (if such a thing as essence of God there be) - and what that is, it and it only knows precisely. The Mind, then, is not separated off from God's essentiality, but is united to it, as light to sun.
Page 4 - I speak not fictitious things but that which is most true and certain. Whatsoever is below is like that which is above, and that which is above is like that which is below, to accomplish the miracles of one thing.
Page xv - Crowley describes this process as ". . . the general doctrine that the climax of the Descent into Matter is the signal for the redintegration^ by Spirit."^ Once the lowest low has been reached, the power is perfect and the process of return is initiated.
