The Laws of Hermetics

1 - The Law of Mentalism: God, or The All is Mind, The Universe is mental and is continuously created and maintained by the Creative Genius.
2 - The Law of Correspondence: As above, so below; as below, so above. Likewise, our outer world is a reflection of our inner world – as within, so without.
3 - The Law of Vibration: Nothing rests, everything is in a constant state of motion, everything vibrates.
4 - The Law 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.
5 - The Law 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.
6 - The Law of Cause & 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.
7 - The Law of Gender: Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.
