So what do Johnny Carson and the Kybalion have in common? One of my favourite segments on the Tonight Show was “Carmac the Magnificent”. Dressed as a mystic from the East, Johnny had his “hermetically sealed envelopes” in hand, and would divine the answer to the question written in the sealed envelope. He would say the answer and the open the envelope to see the question.
Here’s what Wikipedia says of one of the jokes.
The longest laugh ever recorded was given to “Sis Boom Bah,” which was the answer to “Describe the sound made when a sheep explodes” and resulted in both Carson and McMahon breaking character to laugh as well.
And Wikipedia also gives us a definition for hermetic seal:
A hermetic seal is any type of sealing that makes a given object airtight (excludes the passage of air, oxygen, or other gases).
So let’s get back to The Kybalion. This is also known as Hermetic Philosophy, and there’s the link to hermetic seals. The root word is Hermes, and the original teacher of the philosophy is Hermes Trismegistus.
I don’t know much about it yet, but the first webinar was this morning. This is part of the continuation program from the Master Key Experience, and I am excited to learn more and see how it relates to all we have learned so far. Now I need to do some reading!
What, more reading? I guess that never stops, does it? I read that 33% of high school graduates don’t read any more books for the rest of their lives! Yikes!! 60% of US families have not bought a book last year! And the typical American reads about 4 books a year. I am not an American, but I imagine Canadian statistic are about as sad. I am trying to bring up the average, lol.
