THE PRINCIPLE 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. You can see this law manifesting in every aspect of life, in the tides of the oceans, in your need for sleep after a day of works, in the creation of a star and its eventual collapse, in the rise and fall of nations, and even in the operation of the omniverse. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. You see it in your breathing; you see it in God’s breath as He breathes creation out and then breathes creation in. You see it in the movement of stars and in the science of astrology as the Earth moves through the signs of Zodiac.
You can also see the law of rhythm operating in human mental states, where the Hermetic practitioner finds its greatest and most useful application. Hermetists cannot annul this principle or cause it to cease operating; however, they have learned to escape its effects upon themselves to a certain degree by applying the mental law of neutralization. The degree to which they are able to do so is determined by their application of this law and their level of initiation. The Hermetist’s understanding the law of polarity polarize him at the point at which he desires to rest and then neutralizes the rhythmic swing of the pendulum which would tend to carry him to the opposite mental and emotional pole. The master does this by using will and detachment to create a state of consciousness that is not swing back and forth like a pendulum. Whereas the masses of humanity live on mental and emotion roller coasters, the ideal is to attain a state of consciousness of divine indifference, even mindedness, equanimity, inner peace, joy, unceasing happiness and bliss.
Lord Krishna explains the very same teaching in the BHAGAVAD-GITA when he says that the goal is to remain evenminded in the face of profit or loss, pleasure or pain, sickness or health, victory or defeat, rejection or praise. There is a point of neutrality or objectivity or divine detachment that is not caught up in the pendulum-swing between polarities. There is a state called God-consciousness in which you don’t have to have a bad day. In the highest application of this principle of neutrality, it is even applied to the physical body, Bilocation is also can be possible – two or more places in same time. This is completely with the physical vehicle, and the physical body is turned into Light. Duality is transcended.
