Why are you so afraid of the number 13?
I think it is very curious that our culture, may be all cultures are stuck on the number 12. Now I know why we like that number in the metaphysical community. Cause there were 12 disciples, 12 stones, 12 tribes and 12 fruits on the Tree of Life. Metaphysically, and don’t tell no one, 12 is the number of spiritual faculties, of charkas that are part of our energy being. These spiritual centers need to be activated and engaged on a daily basis. Do you do it? That is why the idea of the Julian Calendar really puzzles me! Why did they do it, if they didn’t believe in the Essene mystical tradition? They could have more easily taken 13 months with 28 days each; 4 weeks and 7 days and had one day left over to party! Then we wouldn’t have to remember that saying 30 days has September… what the rest of it, and we could’ve laid out those holiday dates way different.
