This poem was inspired by the power and sacredness of the number thirteen…
Around the time when I wrote this poem I began to understand how thirteen is not the unlucky number it’s believed to be nowadays. In ancient times, 13 was a number that was revered for its sacredness. It was seen as a magic symbol of transformation, as a number that encapsulated regeneration and great change.
For instance, in ancient Egypt it was believed that there were 12 steps on the ladder to Eternal Life, and the13th step is that of immortality. And in the Lunar Cycle the 13th month represents the end and the beginning: the ending of a cycle, which brings about the beginning. Thirteen means facing the old to start anew.
I know for myself and for many of my brothers and sisters, this year of 2013 has been a year of Death and Rebirth. By walking through the doorway of the number 13, we faced our darkest shadows and a new ground was created. I awoke from slumber, the "I" was reclaimed, and The Family once again reunited, converging back into the One, where there’s love.
You are the 13
"You are the 13"
The construct of Fragmented Reality
Courting between Order and Chaos
Shadows of the same Dawn
Mirroring of Soul desires
Flesh and bones
Dancers in reverence to the movements of the Absolute
Temporarily away from the Garden
But reminded always when walking on Native Soil
Template of the 12
Shaken violently from such long sleep
Downloads overwhelmingly with the acceleration of Galatic Portals opening
The Sacred and the One
You are the 13
