Copying is slavery, you have to reach the spirit.

~ Zen Proverb


All living souls welcome whatever they are ready to cope with; all else they ignore, or pronounce to be monstrous and wrong, or deny to be possible.

~ George Santayana, philosopher (1863-1952)


You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking, so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

~ Marianne Williamson, spiritual activist, lecturer, and author (1952-)









Reflections ’Energetic Fields – Number Eight’

On May 8, 1886, the syrup for the popular soda drink Coca-Cola was created. Over the years, this beverage has become the best-known soft drink in the world. The creation of this drink happened on a day whose numerical invigoration number was eight. The name, Coca-Cola, given to the product actually manifests the properties of number eight by its name (C=3, O=15/6, C=3, A=1, C=3, O=15/6, L=12/3, A=1 and 3+6+3+1+3+6+3+1=26 and 2+6=8) and through the supporting structure of its eight letters. So here we have amplified the number 8 in many ways: the characteristics of number eight "repetition, strength and transfiguration that lead to responsibility and power" are the subtle influential factors of this manifestation.

In 2013, I wrote a poem that goes with this drink without mentioning its name. But I had this drink in mind when I wrote this poem. It refers to the numbers 8, 4-4, double letters and different characters.

Represented by same language

Distinguishable by different characters

I am the force of a double

My characters duplicate my strength

I have been imitated
But none has broken my record

The 2016 presidential election is quite interesting because the front runners of the democratic candidates share the invigoration number eight. Hillary Clinton’s invigoration number, derived from the day when she was born, is number 26 and the single-digit numerical value thereof is number eight (2+6=8). Bernie Sanders’ invigoration number is simply the number eight. The day on which he was born, is the 8th September. There is a nuanced difference within the invigorational energy field of Hillary and Bernie. Both, the single-digit number eight and the double-digit number 26 embody strength and power, but the energy of number eight is of a much more forceful and transfigurative energy than the energy of number 26. The energy of the number 26 is more of an unwavering energy that cannot easily be dislodged because this number keeps a firm grip on its position. However in the presence of an energy field of the number eight, a transfigurative change takes place.

Considering what I wrote under number eight on my website, “The metallic element iron (Fe) with the atomic number 26 [single-digit numerical equivalent of number eight (2+6=8)] is on 8th position in row 4 of the periodic table. Iron is a vital constituent of plant and animal life, and is the key component of haemoglobin. The planet's core exists of iron. To fuse iron nuclei, or to split them apart takes either way energy. All other elements can be either fused or split apart while only the fusion or fission process requires energy. It is a unique property for this element and attests to the symbolism of number 8 for that of strength. In the presence of water or air moisture oxygen forms iron oxides molecules with iron commonly known as rust. Here we can see the unique property of strength and transfiguration working together to form a new compound.” Hillary will be strengthened by holding tight on to the status-quo, while Bernie will be more strengthened through measures contributing to transfigurative changes in society.

Not only words but also the dates of events are important. Today’s date is the memorial day for the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, which occurred on February 1, 2003. Another disaster, more than ten years ago happened to the space shuttle Challenger on January 28, 1986. Considering that both dates have the single-digit numerical value of number eight [2+1+2003=2006 (2+6=8) and 1+28+1986=2015 (2+1+5=8)], I’m asking myself whether these two events signal some other serious issues than only some structural and technical problems with these shuttles. Likewise, the number eight shows up in the acronym for the name of the government agency, NASA (single-digit numerical equivalent: N=14/5, A=1, S=19/1, A=1 and 5+1+1+1=8), and in the time between the two events. 17 years lie between the two events and the single-digit value of number seventeen is eight (1+7=8). The inherent values of number eight are repetition, strength, and transfiguration leading to responsibility and power.
