Contradictory Forces

Contradictory forces can work together for the same goal. True initiates never see things as this is good and that is evil. This is matter and that is the spirit. They believe in unity and that duality is simply a manifestation of unity. People even mistake God for the devil. Peace will never come as long as we cling to dualism. Thousands of years ago Hermes Trismegistus wrote in his Emerald Tablet: 'That which is below is like to that which is above, and that which is above is like to that which is below, to accomplish the miracles of one thing.'

Hermes Trismegistus concludes the Emerald Tablet with the words: 'For this reason I am called Hermes Trismegistus (Trismegistus means "thrice greatest"), because I hold the Science of the three worlds.' He knew the secret of unity; he knew how to use that single, many-faceted force, and it was thanks to this force that he possessed all powers. This is the same force of which it is said that he who possesses it shall possess the glory of the whole world. If he could possess it, why not us?

Duality is nothing more than an expression of unity. The first and only number is One. One is the only significant number and Two, Three, Four and so on, are simply divisions of One. Two is simply the polarization of One. The magnet is an example. A magnet is polarized but it is not divided. It is one and it remains one. Only One exits.
