The Buddha said:
This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds
To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance.
A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky,
Rushing by, like a torrent down a steep mountain.


What the caterpillar perceives as the end, to the butterfly is just the beginning.

Numerology & Synchronicy

Today, the 3rd day of the 3rd month of 2013 (2+0+1=3), is the 3rd anniversary of Alan's death. Once again, just as 3 years ago, the 28/02/2013 can be transformed into 333.

  • This year, the day of miracles fell on the 25/02/2013, which can be condensed into 33. 
  • This blog is now 3 years old
  • I'm now on the 3rd year of my BD Teacher Training, which I decided to do 3 days before Alan died. I started 9 (3+3+3) months later, on module 3.
  • Remembering the night Alan was rushed into hospital, there were 3 of us in the waiting room. 
  • During the following 3 weeks I received a lot of help and support from 3 couples (my parents, Simon & Branwen, and Jan & Tim) 
  • On the day of his funeral, Alan's wife, sister and daughter (3 women) sat on the same bench.
  • Three women organised the funeral ceremony - his wife designed the ceremony, Janie officiated the service, and Jan organised the reunion afterwards, where 3 musicians offered to play.
  • Three "Gifts from God" - Jane1 offered music, Jane2 offered a tribute, Jane3 who worked at the funerary agency
  • Jan managed 3 things (keeping people informed of the funeral arrangements, organising the reunion afterwards, and the 7th day prayer/mantra reminders)
  • The service included 3 prayers and 3 chants (one of which was the Chenrezig mantra, which was repeated 21 (2+1=3) times).
  • There were 3 objects inside the coffin (the Heart Sutra, a Buddha image, and a Crunchie bar).
  • I became the subject of 3 women's displaced pain.
  • I was supported by 3 men in 3 different areas (emotional support, probate, and legal advice).
  • 3 of Alan's students decided to leave the Natural Way tai Chi to form their own school
  • Alan's ashes were finally released on the 12/01/2012 (the day he would have celebrated his birthday), and which again can be condensed to 333.
  • Alan and I met on our way to India, where we spent 3 weeks at Drepung Monastery.

This is what I wrote 3 tears ago 
(I meant 3 years ago, but will leave the typo / Freudian slip)

Alan was taken to hospital on the Buddha's Day of Miracles. He died 3 days later, on the 3rd day of the 3rd month, of 2010 (2+0+1+0=3). 
Alan's mother comes from a Catholic background. The number 333 expresses the principal mysteries of the Catholic faith which are: (1) The Unity and the Trinity of God, (2) the incarnation, the passion and death, and the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Symbolism of the number 333: the first divine man, the mystery of the unity of God, the two natures, that of the divine and the human, the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity (the 3 Kayas, in Buddhism?). 
In Numerology, 333 is a sign that Ascended Masters are Around You, working closely with you.

I also noticed that this blog has now 39 published posts (3+9 = 12 and 1+2 = 3). Looking at the clock, I notice that it is exactly 12:33, which can be reduced to 333.

And watching Noctuaries, a moving documentary exploring bereavement through dreams, images and memories, I noticed that grandad is now living in a care home, on room 33.

  1. The number 3 refers to Ascended Masters (great spiritual teachers who once walked upon the Earth, as well as various religions’ deities.)

    3 = the ‘Jesus connection’. When 3’s appear consistently it implies that the Ascended Masters are near you. They have responded to your prayers and wish to help and assist you.

    33 is a Master number and it’s message is that ‘all things are possible’. If you happen to be considering a new venture or major life change, the Master number 33 tells you that if your purpose or reason for change is one of high order and your intentions are of a positive nature, your wishes will come to fruition and the changes will be successful with the help of your angels and the Universal energies.

    With the number sequence 333 repeating, the message is to have faith in humanity. The Ascended Masters are working with you on all levels. They love, guide and protect you – always. When the number 333 repeats in your life you are asked to call upon the Ascended Masters for love, help and companionship. They will give you guidance along your path, and if feeling perplexed or confused as to your purpose, call upon the Ascended Masters to assist. They are waiting for your call.

    The 3333 recurring number sequence indicates that the Ascended Masters and angels are near you at this time, reassuring you of their love, support and companionship. When you notice the 3333 number sequence repeating to you, call upon the Ascended Masters and angels often. They are aware of your position or situation and know the best way to go about things for the highest good. They will help and guide you through your next life phase and wait for you to call upon them.
