2017 is the Year of the One.
Why? Let me tell you …
The year has stepped over the threshold into newness – from 2016 to 2017. I sit and wonder what it has in store for me, for you, for the world.
2016 seemed to be so full of sadness and fear. It was hard to imagine that much good could possibly have happened. Yet it has! There IS hope – good things HAVE happened.
- The number of children receiving schooling is rising
- There are more women in public office
- Global life expectancy is increasing
- And so is global prosperity
- There are more democratic governments ruling countries
- Global connectedness is exploding thanks to the internet
- There are less wars even though it may not seem so
- Global poverty is on a rapid decline
- Deforestation is decreasing and predicted to be 0 in ten years
- The ozone hole is diminishing and predicted to be gone by 2050
- Use of solar power is growing
- The humpback whale is no longer on the endangered list
- Ocean conservation is improving
People power has made this happen. The people are protesting. The people are voicing their rage against injustice, deceit, manipulation, corruption, greed … The people are demanding change.
We can do it. We ARE doing it.
You and I. One step at a time.
That’s why I think 2017 is The Year of The One.
And just to underline it – if you do the numerology thingy on the numbers, that is exactly what it comes to – one.
Let me show you – 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10; 1 + 0 = 1.
In fact, when I googled 2017 I found that numerologically it is considered to be a Universal 1 Year. I hadn’t investigated this beforehand. I literally only just found it after I’d done the above calculation. Synchronicity?
So what is a Universal 1 year ?
ONE is a number of beginning. 2017 bids us all to start something brand new, something that expresses our uniqueness, that uses our leadership abilities, that opens us to new perspectives. 2017 as a One year is a time to think and act independently. It’s also a year to put our leadership abilities and unique talents to use in the greater world, to practice cooperating without losing individuality…. Number ‘1’ is the number of creation, of God, the great omnipotent spirit of life. The Yang. The number of consciousness, light, Genesis, ego. It is the beginning, from which all the other numbers are created. One can be divided into any number leaving it unaltered and so represents the Spirit which can enter all things without changing. It is immovable because whether multiplied or divided by itself one remains the same. This does not happen with any other number. It is the number of aim, ambition and action.
Numerology is a fascinating, albeit for many, a weird and esoteric ancient pseudoscience dating way back to Pythagorean times. Whatever you think of numerology, the New Year heralds a New Beginning. Let’s make it a good one .
In the midst of darkness
let there be Light
May grief burdened hearts
May those who have suffered tragedy and loss
be protected, comforted and enfolded
in the everlasting arms of Unconditional Love
May the guiding principles for prevailing justice
be Heart-centred and
honour, support and respect
the universal values of peace, freedom, dignity,
responsibility and co-operation
May all nations
and transform the world
into one that is founded on
So be it.
Thank you God.
Wishing each and every one of you a year that is filled with joy, love, peace and happiness.
