THE LIGHT OF NUMBERS - 12
PERFECTION OF THE CREATION. IMPECCABLE INTERCONNECTEDNESS OF ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE AND THE UNIVERSE
The number 11 showed us that, in higher spheres of existence, the status of consciousness and its speciﬁc intentions play a direct role in forming our own living environment. The reality is formed by the state of consciousness and that itself is reciprocally formed by the perception of reality. This may sound a bit fantastic or Divine to people.
In the number 11 principles, beings become direct and conscious creators. Are or will humans ever be capable of doing that? The answer is 'yes'. We all carry the Divine Spark of God within us. And the 11 heads directly towards the Divine 12. This 'disruption' of harmony of the creative number 11 actually leads to the number 12 principles - Divine harmony. The number 12 has always been a symbol of Divinity, perfection and completeness of the Divine cycles.
In one year, the moon goes through all its phases 12 times. That is why we divide the year into 12 months. Already in ancient times, based on the existence of these 12 months, the path in the sky in which the sun moves through a year was divided into 12 regions. These 12 regions were named after the constellations they contain. That is how the ZODIAC of 12 signs was created, representing one of the strongest symbolic systems. The 12 signs of the zodiac connect people's destinies and the planet Earth with the forces of the perfect and Divine Universe. The compactness of the 12 months in one year deﬁ nes a compact time cycle in which the Earth changes its position towards the Sun. It also connects the compact range of human destinies with the surrounding Universe. The number 12 in the zodiac refers to the Cosmic forces and Cosmic principles. These are the principles of the Cosmos, completeness, compactness, meaningfulness ... perfection.
The number 12 has always been symbolically linked to Divine perfection. For example, in the New Testament, Jesus has exactly 12 apostles. Gnosis was based on the existence of 12 aeons - Divine eras that were also viewed as beings. In Zarathustra's teaching, the number 12 symbolises the eternity of the world. The 12 Israeli tribes thus represent the completeness of the 'People of God'. The Babylonians saw the number 12 as Divine, because it controlled everything on Earth and in the Cosmos. It was a symbol of the Cosmos to them. The mystic, Rudolf Steiner, discovered and described to the world 12 organs of perception (the Gates of the Soul), with which all humans are equipped. Using these Divine Cosmic tools, humans can touch and explore the essence of the world so that they can return again to the Cosmos.
11 + 1 = 12. If, in the number 11 principles, reality is directly formed by the state of consciousness and that itself is reciprocally formed by the perception of reality, then the number 12 principles contain something in addition to that. If this mysterious developmental stage of 'something in addition to' is reached by a being who once stood at the very beginning of exploration, then surely the significant Divine principle has been accomplished. What happened is that, from a Divine 'child', a conscious and independent being has gradually developed who is a guarantee of affectionate wisdom and creativity.
12 × 12 = 144. If there is an interaction between two actions, purposes, forces, etc. and these two entities arise from the number 12 principles, then the resulting situation is a live connection between the spiritual and physical spheres. The intentions manifest themselves in matter and matter mirrors itself in the insubstantial. Let us have huge respect for the number 12 principles of the perfection of the Creation.
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
11. THROUGH SELF-REALISATION, WE PROMOTE OUR OWN CREATIVE PRINCIPLES. THE PERCEPTION AND INTENTIONS OF THE CONSCIOUS MIND MERGE WITH THE PRINCIPLES OF DIRECT FORMATION OF THE LIVING ENVIRONMENT.
12. WE CONNECT TO THE PERFECTION OF COMPACT COSMIC FORCES. REALISATION TAKES PLACE.
