To my brother from another mother.
And country...hell, continent even.
Ooooh okay...to my brother from the same planet!
Dear fellow earthling!
Happy birthday, to you ..ánd me, 'cause beside the planet, we also share our day of birth, November first.
A date that I love, 1-11....or as you say 11-1
I have heard you mention that this is special to you too. The ones.
We are the ones (that will make you feel better) and now the year also has this one...2021.
November 1st is all saints day (well duh) or all-Hallow day, which was the christian way to nullify the much more nature- spirit- and soul-related Samhain or Día de los Muertos.
As Hallow Day is meant to commemorate the Christian martyrs, the original Celtic Samhain
- forever the heretic, you can't contain me - was for welcoming the harvest and the dark season. Because back then we knew, that both light and dark are equal parts of our being, and it is what makes up the fabric of the whole.
At the exact point in time where the sweetest light retracts and the velvety caress of the dark melts itself around you -
we celebrate the day that the veil between earth and the spiritworld are at its thinnest...exactly the meaning of Día de los Muertos; the day of the dead.
The one day that the dead may visit their embodied loved ones.
Its the one day where love truly conquers all!
And precisely at that time, we chose to become embodied souls on earth Anthony...
No wonder we keep an eye on the shadow's smile...it truly is part of our design.
One one ones's design.
So, here we are traversing the realms, the lit and lightless alike.
To triumph and crash and burn and rise
'I turn to you, I turn into
And then we turn it again'
Always spinning into control.
Do you know that Pythagoreans did not consider one a number at all? Because the word 'number' points at plurality...and one is single.
('all alone not by myself', you said, maybe that's just the fabric of who we are)
"However, they considered it to be the source of all numbers because adding many 1s together can create any other (positive whole) number"
The source of all, and the positive whole...
I'll take that.
"One is the first odd number, the first triangular, square, pentagonal and hexagonal number, and the first tetrahedral, cube and Fibonacci number"
Why? Dunno. The why has always been my problem with anything mathematical or algebrarian, the lack of why's.
It used to drive my teachers (and dad, sorry dad) insane...my asking why. 'Just because' , they would yell at me, 'it is'.
Never trusted math.
And its calling me odd?
And, 'The Number 1 represents the Sun....such persons are creative, strongly individual, inventive and positive. And they are stubborn and determined with their approach toward others'
Aah, nów we're talking! (ignoring the stubborn)
The sun, that's cool, because my middle name is Astrid, which comes from the Greek asteri: star.
(while my first name, Inge comes from angel, tadaa)
And Anthony means 'the priceless one' (damn thats good!) while the Greek 'anthos' means flower.
So...the shining angel and the priceless flower representing the sun. Rock on.
Odd my ass!
So ...lets randomly check a numerology site:
"in numerology, 1 is linked to forward motion. 1 symbolizes a pioneering spirit, independent nature, and innate leadership capabilities. On a bad day, 1 can be ....." huh...no uh uh buzz off!! I don't do bad days now..its my friggin' birthday!!
(it said 'bossy'...pfftss)
So the 111 is an angel number (see, saints and angels galore) ..
"This angel number indicates that your dreams are being manifested. You’re attracting abundance and prosperity into your life. The angels are contacting you to offer support and help on your journey. Angel number 111 has its own symbolic meaning and vibration, which will help you feel closer to your guardian angel"
- Long (long long long) time ago I was at this workshop where a lady introduced me to my guardian spirit...he was a busy little Mexican shaman dude. I'm pretty sure he don't speak a whole lotta' Dutch! Abundance and prosperity?!?
Nah...just kidding, I have absolutely everything I need, so that is a lot of abundance and prosperity.
I do have a dream that I want to manifest. So, universe...how 'bout it...let's make it so!
I am manifesting a long (long long long) walk on a beach conversing with this priceless flower called Anthony Kiedis and have his permission to write about it.
* Genie wink *
"The number 111 contains two significant numbers in numerology: one and eleven. The number one represents independence and motivation. It also signifies new beginnings and the ability to let go and move forward towards success. Eleven is powerful and indicates your ongoing or impending discovery of your soul's mission and life purpose. Combined, the numbers are doubly significant, harkening spiritual awakening and inspiration."
Yeah, bring that on!!
Quite frankly I dó see ones and elevens a whole lot. And lately its increasing...almost every glance at the clock shows me perfect numbers...or at the cash register! Right?
And without any sane reason this makes me happy.
It's like the universe winking at me...you know?
Today, on my birthday I decided and chose to just bathe in that wink as much as possible throughout the day.
I hope you day was as winked at as mine brother.
Let's just always
The seeker, the dweller
for ever the story teller
may everly weller
and love always grow
yes I know sometimes my inner teen takes over...so what...ist my birthday!!!!
