To know, to dare, to will and to be silent. The four powers of the Sphinx within Hermetics, which were written by Eliphas Levi, and found their way into modern Witchcraft and Wicca (as so much Hermetic material has), are often well known but often less understood. We can surmise that “to know” is to be learned and to gain knowledge, “to dare” is to go forth and do with courage, “to will” is to utilize one’s True Will to create change (magic), and “to be silent” is to not speak of one’s workings. Each of these “powers” could be an article or even a book but for this blog I would like to focus on silence.
