Thinking in threes

Contemplating threes lately.

Quote: There are three kinds of people in the world: those who can't stand Picasso, those who can't stand Raphael, and those who've never heard of either of them.

i like it! i have also been doing threes, so i googled the meaning of the number & here's what i found..

Three symbolizes manifestation into the physical

The third dimension - we do things in threes so they will manifest in our physical realm.

Its roots stem from the meaning of multiplicity. Creative power; growth.

Three is a moving forward of energy, overcoming duality, expression, manifestation and synthesis. Three is the first number to which the meaning "all" was given. It is The Triad, being the number of the whole as it contains the beginning, a middle and an end.

The power of three is universal and is the tripartide nature of the world as heaven, earth, and waters. It is human as body, soul and spirit. Notice the distinction that soul and spirit are not the same. They are not. Three is birth, life, death. It is the beginning, middle and end. Three is a complete cycle unto itself. It is past, present, future.
Three is the heavenly number, representing soul.

i found it kind of interesting- hope you do too.
