Some quotes will be posted now and then here, based on the Corpus Hermeticum, the teachings of Hermes (Thoth).
The Excellence of the Soul is Understanding;
for the Man who Understands is Conscious,
devoted, and already godlike.Through these lesser Creators that God has spawned forth, which men worship as different gods by different names, God by himself creates all this and all that ever is or was or is to come. And all things partake of God, since this is so, they are God. Therefore in creating all things, he creates himself; and he can never cease to create, for He Himself never ceases to be. As God has no end, so his handiwork has no beginning nor end.
All that is, is Mental, and Everything exist within the Mind of the All - that which Man calls God.
