  • Service to Life
    • He was a Messenger to whom Egypt gave the name of Thoth, to whom Greece later gave that of Hermes, Rome that of Mercury. He clothed His message in the symbology of Light. He taught that the Higher Self is one, "the Person in the Sun", and that all Selves are Rays of that "Sun Behing the Sun". The same idea was carried by Hermes to Egypt, but the symbology was that of Light. For He said that the Light dwells in Heaven, and yet finds its home in every Heart of man, that Light in the Heaven above us is identical with Light in the Heart within us, and that when once men have seen the Light in their own Hearts, then they can look abroad and see it everywhere in Heaven and Earth. The message was still the ancient teaching, but in the new form the message spoke of Light, where in the earlier time it had spoken of the Sun. (8)

Hermes Trismegistus
Hermes Mercurius Trismegistus

In writings collectively called the Corpus Hermeticum, Hermes describes himself as "Philosopher, Priest, and King". He wrote "The Emerald Tablet" and taught Pythagoras, among other exploits.

The Emerald Tablet

True it is, without falsehood, certain and most true.

That which is above is like that which is below, and that which is below is like that which is above, to accomplish the miracle of unity. Everything is formed from the contemplation of unity, and all things come about from unity, by means of adaptation.

Thus you shall have the glory of the illumination of all the world, and all obscurity will fly far from you.

This is the power of all strength - it overcomes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid substance.

This was the means of the creation of the world.

In the future wonderful adaptations will be achieved, and this is the way.

I am Hermes the Threefold Sage, so named because I hold the three elements of all wisdom.

And thus ends the revelation of the work of the Sun.

God Mercury

This representation of the Roman God Mercury was sculpted by the Renaissance artist Giambologna in 1580 in Scala, Italy. Son of the God Jupiter and of Maia, daughter of the Titan Atlas, he stands poised on one foot with his right arm raised high in a pointing gesture. As Messenger to the Gods, he was associated with heraldry and commerce. The symbolic caduceus staff is his badge of office signifying Truth.
