The change of the year is noted by the introduction of the number 10 and, in combination with the century, we find the total number 2+0+1+0 = 3.
Key themes of 3: action, manifestation, positive mind, affirmation, heat, the fire of joy or anger, resourceful, playful, hope when there is no hope, smile when there is no reason, unjustified enthusiasm, equality or victim, success or failure, respect and right value.
The background presence of number 10 means that all these themes can be experienced in their extremes. The 10 will illuminate the best and the worst of these themes over the year. It is a year of “all for one and one for all,” however, the excellence begins as a mere potential to be realized only in the actions of each and every one.
The presence of the 2 [from 2000] will continue to bring out the duality and challenge us to find the creative polarity.
It is a great year to distinguish and clarify the No and the Yes in our life on a daily basis. By doing this we will be well placed to train the instrument of the Positive Mind to serve the awareness of the Neutral Mind rather than the subconscious tendencies of the Negative Mind.
For example, 3 is the planet Jupiter. The planet of joy and expansion. Of course, it is also the encounter with the blocks we meet when we try to expand. Or it can be the tendency to over expand, which leads us to fall over ourselves. Either way, there is a sense in which the most hidden truths will be brought to the surface and made visible.
Spontaneous combustion is a phenomenon that can refer to mad outbursts of riots and war, as well as sudden releases of joy or hysteria. It can also refer to unpredictable moments of freedom from of old patterns of behavior based on inequality.
Leading to sudden moments of recognition of everyone as being just like ourselves. Such moments could be invited by establishing the will to listen to each other in a big way.
It is not so easy as saying that the total number of 2010 = 3, therefore, the year will be lucky, positive, year of action and joy. There is a journey to make to reach the best of number 3 and it is not an easy one. Yogi Bhajan referred to that journey as Obey, Serve, Love, Excel.
To obey is like following the call of the river to reach the ocean. Even when the power of the flow gets deeper and wider and is not so easy to stay with.
To serve is to hold to our commitment no matter what circumstances we cross. No matter how strong the storm of fear or how great the doubt.
To love is to deliver your whole and true self, letting the heart go through the pain of stretching wider to reach the discovery that there is nothing the Light of God within cannot hold and deal with.
To Excel is to let that Light shine through into every single act you do.
This process trains us on a cellular level to disinvest in self-deception, or in the let down of self. It will also serve the cellular training for success. It means that emotions are neither repressed nor naively expressed. Rather they are held and directed into effective action.
The journey to the 3 is also described in the Karam Kriya saying “Chaos Spontaneously Initiates Order.” To find the true and natural order requires that we hold the power of the chaos in a state of prayer. Alternatively, we may enjoy or suffer from the reverse effect; “Excess Order Initiating Spontaneous Chaos.”
So it may not be a year for being in control but it is a year to take intuitively guided and intelligent action. A result of Training the Positive Mind.
This means to ask for help. To remember, and lean on, the Greater Unit of Self, as represented by the number 10. [The whole that is more than the sum of the parts]. The 10 is what always keeps us company, even when alone. Listening to the Greater Unit of Self, and thereby keeping a sense of the divine at your side. This shall provide the impulse for all your accomplishments of 2010.
It is a year that the big picture reveals itself. It is not a year for hesitation but for excellence in action.
Key Sutra: “When the time is on you, act and the pressure shall be off.” (Yogi Bhajan, Aquarian Sutras)
