5th Principle

5) Everything has its own vibration. When you were born, you had already a song of your own, your expression of the Song of Love. It is the same for all life. Each has its own expression. Even so with plants, trees, rocks, clouds, water, earth; All Life.

You have your own song, sing it! This is why most often we see a personality coming out even in the tiniest baby. This little person is already very much carrying a tune of their own. We do not make them each individuals, they already are. What we do is add the various grace notes and new phrases to their repertoire so that, if we have done our job correctly, they may sing their own song more fully.

A parent does not give a child their personality, they have that already when born. However, a parent can influence very much how that personality interfaces with the society into which that child is born. Your child is the gift of the many generations both houses of mother and father combined with the love and care given by this set of parents. That makes child rearing an ever present challenge, since, as any good parent knows, no two children are alike. You simply can’t go by a previously given set of instructions.

However, if you think of your child as having their own music when they come to you, and think of your job as truly listening to hear their song, then help them tune it and fine tune it, the rewards for both child and parent will be immense. When we learn to have that kind of respect for each other, let alone the other life forms in the Universe, we may just begin to mature into the kind of enlightened beings that are capable of creating harmony and balance!

Three

Is three a magical number, or a divine number, and is there a difference? You do know that the Trinity does not have exclusive dominion over the number three as to the amount of persons or concepts involved in a particular set of beliefs, right? And you also know that the others cannot be chided for copying Christianity as they existed before Paul and Constantine decided that Moshe must have got it wrong when he quoted G-d as having said he would never come in human form? OK, I just wanted to know we were on the same page.

Three has represented so many wonderful things all along the many spiritual journeys man has set his heart and feet upon. There are the three treasures and the three jewels, these are in Taoism and Buddhism respectively, and signify the discipline, guidance of the Buddha and fellowship in Buddhism, and Charity, frugality and humility in Taoism. Click on the number above and you will see that there are so many ways that three has shown up that one could almost wear a triad symbol into any spiritual gathering anywhere and be accepted as one of the fellowship. I like this little jade mobius strip that isn’t really anybody’s but celebrates the number 3 as well as anything available.

The concept of the several being parts of the one was already in Judaism when Constantine played his hand, showing up in Jewish mysticism as the Sefirot, not three in one, but an entire tree of individuals who all held within themselves the reflection of the whole. Aspects of God they are called, yet each aspect has it’s own personality and is therefore not considered an “it”.

The Wiccans recognize the power of three and the law of returns with their teachings. If you put it out into the universe, it will return to you threefold, hmmm, where did i hear that teaching before? The big difference is that for them it is Maiden, Mother and Crone, not Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

What really makes that number of all numbers so dang special? I have a theory, it’s probably only worth a couple of cents, even in today’s inflated market, but, hey, what the heck . . . . .I think it has to do with the triad made within music of the sound of a chord. When three harmonious notes are played together the chord that results is both stronger and more beautiful than one note alone.

I Googled musical chords, and there was my mobius in the form of chords. I am simply going to have to get one to wear! The link for that picture takes you to an article entitled Goedel, Escher and Chopin, but there’s a book out there entitled Goedel, Escher and Bach, a fun read if you enjoy word play and love allowing the mind to wander through several layers of meaning. Oh, and another triad.

I have not even begun to explore all the places there are triads to explore, from the Parthenon, to Egypt, to Hinduism, it’s all there. Lots and lots of threes. Remember, three harmonious notes make a chord.
