Internal Sports™ is the framework for developing the internal qualities the “spiritual athlete” needs to become more aware, focused and successful - both materially and spiritually.
The gym or training field for a professional athlete is equivalent to everyday life for the Hermeticist. Each challenge/workout is a way for the athlete to get stronger; with practice the athlete will improve and attain the goals he or she sets for him/herself.
Facing lifeʼs challenges through the Hermetic work is done through discipline and observation. It can be agreed that a professional football player does not simply wake up one morning with the skills necessary to become a world-class athlete. Dedication to ones crafts is imperative for success. This is no different for the Hermetic student.
We invite you to discover and evaluate in what ways the development of these qualities (below) could help you increase
your spirituality, health, love of life and material manifestation through practice and resolve.
If you decide to put any, or all these, internal workouts to practice, the effects you feel will be your own earned reward and a
great source of motivation to continue.
Human Impeccability: acting in accordance with the highest standards of ones own ability… responding to the challenges of life in order to reach humanities highest level of development.
In order to grow ones must maintain a continuous positive attitude; of overcoming obstacles, of breaking internal barriers, of rising above difficulties and mediocrity, of broadening the horizon and of ones ability to do things.
A positive attitude helps us face problems without losing sight of the opportunities they may offer.
Optimism and pessimism are opposing views which condition expectation and life experience positively, or negatively.
Discipline keeps our goals alive.
The Discipline Internal Sport is about the personal decision and commitment to achieve a certain goal.
Willpower is key to the understanding of self mastery.
Itʼs easy to do the things you like or want to do. Whatʼs not so easy is to do things you donʼt like, or want to do, even though you know you must do them. Will power is using your energy to to do that which you find inconvenient or difficult, in order to achieve desired results.
If we want to achieve extraordinary things, our ordinary energy will not suffice.
The creation and conservation of energy are of utmost importance for a healthy and successful life.
All of us are subject to the laws of Nature. One of Nature’s laws – the Law of Entropy - states that everything in life has a “natural” tendency towards disorder.
Disorder can be created easily; it is the path of everything probable; it is what happens when you “let things go.” On the other hand, order cannot be created by itself, one has to create it with purpose, effort, and consciousness.
There are many things we might admire in other people, but perhaps the best thing we could say about someone is that they “keep their word.”
When we keep our word, we respect ourselves. This act also attracts admiration from others.
The word “honorable” in this context therefore means to honor one’s word and one’s own commitments.
