Post #14- Energy flow and its role in our life.

Energy  flow   is  taken  as  the  3rd  factor  to  work  on  to  solve  our  problems. So  question  arises, what  is  energy?Is energy flow important!!?? Because we dont even see it in most cases.---But Science  shows  everything  is  made  up  of  energy. Even vaccum  is  not  empty. But  it  is filled  with  energy. Einstein said  matter  is  an  illusion. Energy  is the  building   block of matter. The  same  energy  that  composes  your  flesh   is the  same  one  that  composes  the  makings  of  an  ant  or the  trees  outside. We  are  all  made  up  of  same  stuff.Even our thoughts are a form of energy.It  is  constantly  flowing, changing  form  all  the time, permeating  everything. Everything  in  this  universe  is made  up  of  energy. It  is  just  present  in  different  forms  or  shapes. If  we  analyse  subatomic  level, scientists  have shown  us  through  quantum  physics  that  everything  at  this  level  is  pure  energy. Energy  adds  up  with  matter  to give  us  physical  world. Hence  humans  are  pure energy. Everything   in  this  universe  is  made  up  of  energy  including  ourselves. From  spiritual  point  of  view, we  are  deathless  souls  with  a physical  body- a  particle  of  the divine. So  what  we  do  all  our  life  is using  energy  and transform  to  another  form  in  whatever  thing  we  do. If  we  just  give  a  plain  look, we  are  mostly  dealing  with matter  or  physical  things. But all  that  is  energy  basically. Energy exists in different forms like Physical energy, Cosmic energy, Spiritual energy etc.We give importance to some energy flow methods like Vaastu, Feng Shui, Reiki, Tai Chi, Meditation etc in various aspects of life. These methods straighten the energy flow which is disrupted due to some reasons and give a positive change in our body,surroundings and life.Prayers are a form of energy.As the size of physical things in the case goes bigger,influence of the energy flow in the result becomes obvious.One can easily attain result without giving importance to energy flow by just giving importance to plain workable conditions of physical and non-physical things related to the problem.Physical and non-physical things are still workable without straightening energy flow related to it. But results will not be optimum without positive energy flow and also negative energy will prevail in problem solver's life,which is never good. Positive energy flow also helps to bring consistency because it brings in fresh mind and positive approach.We are part of the energy flow of the universe and because of that connection we should consider its effects that can affect our life.

Post #13- Importance of triangular design in building structures.

Uniqueness of Triangle shape is not just in 2D planes.It is a shape which provides immense strength,stability and also helps in reducing cost in 3D structures while building big structures.Triangle structures helps builders to reduce cost and provide strength to the whole structure.Let us look at the 2 factors,cost and strength.

1.      Cost – Use less material while still ensuring that the structure is strong and stable. since the triangle obviously has only 3 sides, it requires little material to make a support, thus minimizing the costs.

2.      Strength/Stability – Triangle structure not only support its own weight, but also withstand as much external force as it can. Because the triangle does not easily deform and is able to balance the stretching and compressive forces inside the structure.    

Overall, a triangle is the simplest geometric figure that will not change shape when the lengths of the sides are fixed. In comparison,both the angles and the lengths of a four-sided figure must be fixed for it to retain its shape.
There are good examples in which the triangular structure or the 3 way structure is used to build big buildings       because of these 2 factors.One of such example is Burj Khalifa in Dubai.In  addition  to  its  aesthetic                     and  functional  advantages,the  spiraling  “Y”  shaped plan was  utilized  to  shape the  structural  core  of  Burj  Khalifa. This  design  helps to reduce the  wind  forces  on  the  tower, as  well as  to  keep    the  structure  simple  and  foster constructability.To support  the  unprecedented  height  of  the building,  the engineers  developed  a  new  structural system  called  the  buttressed  core, which  consists  of  a  hexagonal  core  reinforced  by  three buttresses  that  form  the  ‘Y'  shape.  This  structural  system  enables the  building  to   support itself  laterally and  keeps   it   from  twisting. The  Y-shaped floor  plan  maximizes  views  of  the Arabian Gulf.

Another example  which  shows  high  stability  of   triangle  is  the  swing. The  structure  on  which  the  swing  is  built  is  usually  triangle  in  shape.Because it provides stability and can uphold the shake  and  movement  of   the  swing.

Post #12- Number 3 and its cultural references

Number 3 has many cultural references.Different cultures across the world identify 3 as a strong and influential number.Given below are number 3's different cultural usages and its importance in their belief.

Africa Ashanti  : the moon goddess is three people, two black, and one white.

Arabian, Pre-Islamic  : the Manant is a threefold goddess representing the 3 Holy Virgins, Al-Itab, Al-Uzza, and Al-Manat. They are depicted as aniconic stelae, stones or pillars, or as pillars surmounted by doves.

Buddhist  : tradition the theme of 3 is represented by, The Tri-ratna, The Three Precious Jewels, and the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.

Chinese : Sanctity; the auspicious number; the first odd, yang number....The moon toad, or bird, is three-legged.

Celtic : Bridgit is threefold; there are the Three Blessed Ladies and innumerable Triads, often a threefold aspect of the same divinity.

Christianity : Three represents the Trinity, the soul, the union of body and soul in human in the church. There were three gifts of the Magi to Christ as God-King-Sacrifice; three figures of transformation, temptations, denials by Peter (one of the 12 Apostles--- 12=3 (1+2=3). There were 3 crosses at Calvary, He died on The Hills, there were 3 days to the death process for Christ, and there were 3 appearances after his death. There were 3 Marys, and there are 3 qualities or theological virtutes being Faith, Hope, Love or more commonly known as Charity. The number 3 gives to the meaning the embracing Godhead - Father, Mother, Son/Daughter.

Egyptian : Hermetic tradition.Thoth is the Thrice great, :Trismegistus'. The Supreme Power.

The opening line of the Emerald Tablets of Thoth,The Atlantean

Table 11 
Three is the mystery, come from the great one,
Hear, and light on thee will dawn.
In the primeval dwell three unities,
Other than these none can exist.
These are the equilibrium, source of creation,
One God, One Truth, One Point of Freedom.
Three come forth from the three of the balance,
All Life, all Good, all Power.
Three are the qualities of God in his light-home
Infinite Power, Infinite Wisdom, Infinite Love.
Three are the circles (or states) of Existence:
The Circle of Light where dwells nothing but God,
and only God can traverse it,
The Circle of Chaos where all things by nature arise from Death,
The Circle of Awareness where all things spring from Life.
All things animate are of three states of existence,
Chaos or death, liberty in humanity, and felicity of Heaven.
There is an ancient wisdom that's says; 'Messages or events that come in three's are worth noticing. 'Whenever anything is mentioned three times it is a witness to us that these things are of utmost importance.
Three symbolizes manifestation into the physical. It is the triangle - pyramid shape in the vesica pisces - see image below.
The TV Show 'Charmed' deals the 'Power of Three Sister Witches', known as the Charmed Ones. Their job is to vanquish evil forces in their many forms and sometimes non-forms.

The above symbol, called a Triquetra (tri-KET a Latin word meaning 'three cornered') appears on The Book Of ancient book of spells that assists these 'Charmed Ones' in dealing with the evil forces they are continually encountering. In some episodes so called evil and good must work together to bring balance to a situation. They cancel each other out in the end - poof - gone - disappeared!
A powerful confirmation occurred as we walked back along the trail, unexpectedly encountering a huge grandmother tortoise seemingly waiting beside the trail to greet us. That's when I knew I was to share about the 'Power of Three' for those who may feel inspired to consciously work with this powerful element of sacred geometry.
'Power of Three' has to do with Alchemy. The Egyptian god Thoth or the Greek Hermes Trismegistus (Thrice Blessed or Thrice Great) are the progenitors of the Emerald Tablets describing the mysteries of Alchemy. The alchemy of three is demonstrated by its power of multiplicity. For example, in understanding the numbers - One gave rise to Two (1+1=2) and Two gave Rise to Three (2+1=3) and Three gave rise to all numbers (3+1=4, 3+2=5, 3+3=6, 3+4=7, 3+5=8 3+6=9). Thus in addition to being a number of good fortune, Three is also the number of multiplicity and alchemy among other things.
Many believe the Triquetrais an ancient symbol of the female trinity, because it is composed of three interlaced yonic Vesica Pisces (a.k.a. PiscisSLatin for "Vessel of the Fish") and is the most basic and important construction in Sacred Geometry, which is the architecture of the universe.
A Vesica is formed when the circumference of two identical circles each pass through the center of the other in effect creating a portal. 'The Triquetra' represents the 'Power of Three' or the threefold nature of existence i.e. body, mind and spirit; life, death and rebirth; past, present and future; beginning, middle and end; Sun, Moon and Earth; and the threefold co-creative process described as thought, word, and deed.

Vesica Pisces - Oval opening of the penis
The creation process as described in the Vedas is unfolding, maintaining, and concluding as in birth, life and death. There are innumerable trinities and triads throughout myth and religious traditions, such as the triple goddess; maiden, mother, crone. One example in Greek mythology is Kore, Demeter, Hecate. The Christian trinity is Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Vedic trinities include Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva with their consorts Saraswati, Lakshmi and Kali to name just a few.
I have often referred to triple planetary and celestial alignments as a Triune Council. This month we have several Triune Councils including the important Venus retrograde in Scorpio that will join up with Mercury and the Moon. Scorpio is the archetypal sign of the powerful Sorceress Witch (the crone aspect also linked with Kali, Hecate, Pele, the Cretan Snake Goddess, Cerridwen and all the goddesses linked with death and rebirth).
Her job is to align with divine will for the purpose of commanding life force energy so powerfully that she is fully the mistress of magic and manifestation generating ecstatic life experiences through the Shamanic Process of death and rebirth. It is worth noting all the Triune Councils that occur regularly 'Above and Below' as they energize the 'Power of Three.'
When we are seeking direct experience of these energies we can then work with them more consciously. If you feel inspired by and connected to the 'Power of Three' it may be worthwhile to experiment with gathering in groups of three with a common intent and then invoke the Power of Three and notice what happens. This just may be one simple key to planetary transformation utilizing the Power of Three to catalyze the alchemy of our world into the fully embodied, living experience of Heaven on Earth.

Greco-Roman: Fate, the Moirai, who are three-in-one as Moira; Hecate is three-fold; the Erinyes are three-in-one as Erinys, as are the Gorgons as Medusa. There are three charities, graces. There are 3 sirens, Horae, Hesperides, Graiai. Cerberus is a triple-headed and Scylla has a 3 bitch tail. The Chimera has a three part body. Three, four and their sum, seven are sacred to Aphrodite/Venus as queen of the three worlds and four elements. Orphic symbols has the triad of Being, Life, Intelligence.

Hebrew three is symbolized by Limitless Light; sanctifying intelligence. In the Kaballah three represents understanding and the trinity of male, female and uniting intelligence.

Hindu : The Trimurti, the triple power of creation, destruction, preservation, of unfolding, maintaining and concluding. There are various trinities of gods. The moon chariot has three wheels.

Japanese : The Three Treasures are, Mirror, Sword and Jewel--that being Truth, Courage and Compassion.

Maori : the Great Spirit, the Divine Creator, is a trinity of sun, moon earth, the god of nature, of past, present, and future. It is mind, character, physique symbolized by three raised fingers.

Mexican: the Trinity is represented by three crosses, one large, two smaller.

Scandinavia : Fate as the Three Norns, Mani, Nyi and Nithi, who denote the full, new, and waning moon.

Teutonic mythology : the moon is Fate, and Holda, the lunar goddess, is trine with her two daughters. Thor is sometimes depicted with three heads and the triskele is a symbol of Odin/Woden. Three is the number of good fortune. In Carthage, the Great Goddess, as lunar, is represented by three aniconic pillars.

Slavic : The moon god is triple-headed.

Taoist : The Great Triad is Heaven-Man (Human)-Earth. Three is the strong number in Taoist symbolism because it is the center point of equilibrium.

Post #11- Number 3 and its various relations with our lives

3 is a number which has meaning of  stability.We have many examples in our own lives that emphasize the importance of number 3.Cited below are the connection of 3 and its relations with our lives.

The third dimension - we do things in threes so they will manifest in our physical realm.
It's roots stem from the meaning of multiplicity. Creative power; growth. Three is a moving forward of energy, overcoming duality, expression, manifestation and synthesis. Three is the first number to which the meaning "all" was given. It is The Triad, being the number of the whole as it contains the beginning, a middle and an end.
The power of three is universal and is the tripartide nature of the world as heaven, earth, and waters. It is human as body, soul and spirit. Notice the distinction that soul and spirit are not the same. They are not. Three is birth, life, death. It is the beginning, middle and end. Three is a complete cycle unto itself. It is past, present, future.
The symbol of three is the triangle. Three interwoven circles or triangles can represent the indissoluble unity of the three persons of the trinity. Others symbols using three are: trident, fleur-de-lis, trefoil, trisula, thunderbolt, and trigrams.
The astral or emotional body stays connected to the physically body for three days after death. There is scientific evidence that the brain, even when all other systems are failing takes three days to register complete shutdown.
There are 3 phases to the moon. Lunar animals are often depcited as 3 legged.
Three is the heavenly number, representing soul, as four represents body. Together the two equal seven (3+4=7 ) and form the sacred hebdomad. The 3x4=12 representing the signs of the Zodiac and months of the year.
Pythagorean three means completion.

There are three wishes, genies have three wishes, three leprecons, three prince or princesses, three witches, three weird sisters among others.
