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 ’Poems to Numbers’

With my poems to numbers I also would like to illustrate the properties inherent in numbers. Whatever your invigoration number is (day of birth), the invigoration number is your personal strengthener, your individual independence day. If the underlying motives for your decisions and actions are based on these qualities (properties), your life is less scattered and proceeds more in a laser focused manner, while your decisions and actions serve you in your best interest. Also, if you know your destination number (derived from your name), you know better what your destiny has in store for you. For example, if your destination number is NUMBER THREE, your destiny is to become or be tolerant (social), challenge the existing conditions, and add variety to any relationship.

As an example for the possible manifestation of a person’s or entity’s destiny I would like to mention here a country and a well-known person.

The country I like to mention here is the ‘United States of America.’ The reduced double-digit numerical value of this name is number 12, and the single-digit value thereof is number 3 (1+2=3).

The well-known person, whose destiny number is number three, is Bill Gates. The reduced single-digit numerical value of his entire name, William Henry Gates, is number 3.

Their destiny number has in store for them to be tolerant (social), open to other people and their views, and be part of their lives.

And when you consider what the ‘United States of America’ is all about, it perfectly fits for the destiny of this country. And I think it also fits to Bill Gates’ life.

Number, as it were, lies behind the psychic realm as a dynamic ordering principle, the primal element of which Jung called spirit. As an archetype, number becomes not only a psychic factor, but more generally, a world-structuring factor. In other words, numbers point to a background reality in which psyche and matter are no longer distinguishable. To sum up: numbers appear to represent both an attribute of matter and the unconscious foundation of our mental process. For this reason, number forms, according to Jung, that particular element that unites the realms of matter and psyche. It is “real” in a double sense, as an archetypal image and as a qualitative manifestation in the realm of outer-world experience.
