As stated in The Inner Temple of Witchcraft by Christopher Penchak. In all things there are certin rules or commanalites that we learn and discover and it is no less with witchcraft. Some of these rules are laid down in what is called the Hermetic Principals of Witchcraft. They are not set in stone but are guidelines for self study and testing but I have seen the truth in each one so far as I have viewed them in my own life. I will introduce them in these posts one at a time so that they can be contemplated apon and thought about.
1st Hetmetic Principal: Principal of Mentalism.
This states that everything in the universe is a creation, not just happenstance or out of nowhere, of God or what ever form you believe in wether it be God, God and Godess or which ever. We did not just poof into exsistence in other words. We, All of us, exist in this sphere with equality and as part of a greater whole, nothing makeing us better then anyone else.
