THE LIGHT OF NUMBERS - 10
AFTER DISSOLVING THE KARMIC BURDEN, THE SOUL GAINS NEW POTENTIAL FOR A NUMBER OF POSSIBILITIES TO ACQUIRE HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS. THE POSSIBILITY TO CHOOSE
The utterly extraordinary and highest single-digit number, the 9, is followed by something new and different - the two-digit 10. The two-digitness of the number 10 refers to the completeness of the preceding developmental journeys of the single-digit numbers, because the 10 already represents something new, and at the same time, it rounds off the preceding numbers.
The decimal numeric system does not exist merely by chance. We have 10 ﬁngers on our hands. Through the number 10 we then literally grasp our every-day life. The number 10 contains both 1 and 0, so it clearly refers to the principles of rebirth (1) and immense potential (0). Therefore, if we manage to acquire the number 9 developmental cycle, we will top it off with the number 10.
What then does the number 10 try to tell us? Our Cosmic Story of Creation starts with the 0. But the zero in the number 10 is different. It is no longer independent. Unlike the individual zero, this ﬁnishing, number 10 zero carries complementary information, which refers to the principle of new intentions. It tells us that it has acquired speciﬁ c experience and completed its development.
Many spiritual texts by great spiritual leaders and masters speak of embracing the earthly developmental cycle. If we manage to master it all, then we will earn ourselves the right to choose the further direction of our development.
And indeed, in our Numerical Cosmic Story of Creation, upon ﬁ nishing the number 9 principles, we can enter entirely new dimensions. A new potential opens before us. But before entering into the world of new dimensions, we make free choices through the number 1 principles. We choose our new journey of life. The number 1 shifted before the 0 symbolises the principles of choice and the speciﬁ cation of some new intention. The 1 and 0 individually basically symbolise some well-deserved, new number 1 in newly available possibilities.
This is beautifully documented and described in one of the oldest preserved historical Hermetic texts, called:
"A secret dialogue of Hermes Trismegistus on the mountain to his son Tat"
"ON REBIRTH AND THE PROMISE TO BE SILENT"
"You know now, my son, the manner of rebirth. With the arrival of the ten, spiritual birth is complete and it drives out the twelve, and by this birth we have become divine. Whoever, then, by God's mercy attains a divine birth, is freed from the bodily senses and is made whole by these powers. He knows himself and rejoices.
"... The ten, my son, gives birth to souls. Life and light are united there where the number of the Unit has been born of the Spirit. The Unit therefore according to reason has the Decade and the Decade the Unit."
THE NUMERICAL STORY OF CREATION:
0. AT THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING THERE WAS UNMANIFESTED POTENTIAL OF THE ABSOLUTE
1. A SPECIFIC AND UNIFORM PURPOSE HAS EMERGED FROM THE UNMANIFESTED POTENTIAL OF THE ABSOLUTE.
2. THE PURPOSE GAVE RISE TO THE 'PLAYING FIELD' WHERE THE 'GAME' WILL 'TAKE PLACE'. IT BROUGHT FORTH THE PRINCIPLES OF DUALITY.
PERFECT CONDITIONS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIVING BEINGS BASED ON THE
PRINCIPLE OF 'THE THIRD ONE IS ABOVE THE TWO' WERE CREATED. DUALITY
PERCEIVED FROM THE THIRD POSITION, THE INTERCONNECTING POSITION OF
DISTANCE AND IMPARTIALITY. DEVELOPMENT, ACTION, BALANCING.
4. CONSCIOUS BEINGS TRY TO BECOME ACCUSTOMED TO DIFFERENT SPHERES OF EXISTENCE IN A CYCLICAL PATTERN.
PROCESS OF EXPLORING SUBSTANTIAL AND INSUBSTANTIAL REALMS IS
NEVER-ENDING, OPEN AND LARGELY INDIVIDUAL. EVERY HUMAN IS A UNIQUE,
CREATIVE BEING. A HUMAN BEING IS COMPRISED OF THE DIVINE SPARK AND
HUMAN BEINGS LEARN THROUGH RESIDING IN MATTER ON THE PLANET EARTH. THIS
CREATES THE NECESSITY OF LEARNING THE MATTER PRINCIPLES AND
SUBSEQUENTLY LEARNING FROM THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR ACTIONS.
MASTERING THE PRINCIPLES TAUGHT BY EARTH REQUIRES IMPLEMENTING
PROCESSES OF PRECISE AND CONSCIOUS GOAL SETTING DURING DESCENT INTO THE
SPHERES OF MATTER. INTENTIONAL ENTRY INTO AN UNFAMILIAR ENVIRONMENT.
8. LIFE, THAT'S A CYCLICAL RESTORATION. DEATH AND REBIRTH ARE THE EQUIVALENT OF EACH OTHER. LIFE TEACHES US ABOUT TRANSFORMATIONS, ABOUT INTERCONNECTING DIFFERENT WORLDS IN UNISON. REALISING THE PATHS OF DEVELOPMENT AND TRANSFORMATION. REALISING THE PERFECTION OF BOTH SPHERES.
9. SPIRITUAL GROWTH OF HUMAN BEINGS TAKES PLACE THROUGH CONNECTION TO THE INTANGIBLE SPIRITUAL SPHERE AND THROUGH THE SPIRITUAL REALISATION OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR ACTIONS. BY REACHING THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF COGNITION WITHIN THE NUMBER 9 SPHERE, THE SOUL GAINS THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENTER INTO THE NUMBER 10 SPHERE.
10. AFTER THE COMPLETION OF THE NUMBER 9 DEVELOPMENT, AN INSIGHT INTO YOURSELF TAKES PLACE. THIS ALLOWS CHOICE AND CRYSTALLISATION OF NEW INTENTIONS IN NEW DIMENSIONS AND NEW POSSIBILITIES IN LIFE. THE NUMBER 10 IS A NEW AND MORE EXPERIENCED IMPULSE WITHIN UNLIMITED POTENTIAL
