I have been searching for the past hour and I cant seem to find his work on hermetic principles.

I have recently started my journey in the Hermetic principles and am very lost on how to begin with what seems to be an infinite source of information.

For me Newton was "one" of the greatest mind to have ever lived and I thought maybe reading what he had to say about it all might help me or point me in a direction. I feel there is a thousand doors infront of me and am not sure which one to open first.

Thank you if you can provide me with what I seek.

I posted on this forums since I am confident that those who dwell around here have the information I am looking for.

Does not have to be English, Latin is also ok.

Keynes Manuscript 27 in the Cambridge library is the best place to start. The linked site also has many more Keynes manuscripts that can be viewed.

Thank you, I was hoping a Franc Maçon would show up to guide me the right way.

No problem, that is the manuscript where the well known lapis philosophorum image is taken from.

Honestly the Keynes manuscript is probably the worst place you could start. There’s almost zero point in studying the ancient manuscripts until you’ve attained a degree of mastery and understanding already. If you’re brave and want a true system of initiation into the hermetic sciences, read Initiation Into Hermetics by Fran’s Barron. After you finish that, he has two other books on further knowledge and advanced teachings. However, most people on the internet will simply tell you that his teaching don’t work because they don’t understand them and are unable to make them work for them. You probably will not have much success with only Barron’s books unless you possess an exceptional innate aptitude for the Hermetic sciences. I HIGHLY recommend reading all of H.P. Blavatsky’s books as well. Her books (Isis Unveiled, The Secret Doctrine, and The Voice of the Silence are the three you really need to read, and in that order. The Secret Doctrine is the big one. It IS the true key to completely understanding and penetrating The Hermetic Sciences) are of exceptional quality and content. Yogi Ramacharaka also has two great books that could be of help, Raja Yoga and Advanced Course in Yogi Philosophy and Oriental Occultism. Don’t misunderstand this. The Hermetic Doctrine IS the secret occult teachings that have been taught all over the world since time immemorial. According to H.P. Blavatsky, India is the last country in the world that still has true Adepts still living today who possess the true secret keys and the complete system of knowledge. Freemasonry used to hold the keys, but the ancient initiates who founded it left and took the secrets with them when it became corrupt because they did not want the sacred power and knowledge to be abused. If these books are not enough, the Agatha Pradipika is another excellent book. Swami Vivekananda and Alice A. Bailey also have great books on the subject. You should also check out C.W. Leadbeater and Manly Palmer Hall. Also, if you’re interested in Medieval European Hermetics, Eliphas Levi and Paracelsus are your best bets. Europe never possessed nearly as great of Initiates as the Egyptians, the Chaldeans, and the ancient Yogis and Vedic peoples.

On the other hand, if you get tired of reading mouldy old tomes that do not speak to the modern condition of man and merely reflect the limited understanding and science of the times when they were written, you can find here a complete, mathematical exposition, totally original (never published elsewhere) of the "Ancient Wisdom" or "Perennial Philosophy" that connects with modern concepts. In fact, you can find there evidence for transcendental intelligence, provided you have the intelligence needed to grasp it.

I've been starting to read some hermetics, that and chaos magic are of interest to me right now and are easy to marry into science, Im just getting into Franz Bardon initiation into Hermetics it is easy to read and you can pick it up in free pdf. It comes in two parts, theory/practical with the practical in a step by step guide... I'm on the theory myself.
