The good news for 2013 is that we didn’t die in the doom and gloom at the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21, 2012. We are still here, but how are we here? Are you going to struggle along to just get along? If you want more and better out of life, the natural principles of sustainability show you how. To sustain is to be continuously happy and healthy and successful.
The core “sustain ability” for this life of ongoing fulfillment and aliveness is SYNERGY.
Synergy is the principle of exponential and renewable energy that is rooted in the Greek language as “sun ergos,” or sun energy – “sunergy” into synergy. Our sun keeps going and going because it is synergistic, meaning that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, and when the parts of this fireball go off, they are refueled by and refuel all other combustions – continuously multiplying and regenerating itself.
Like the sun, having our own inner fire, how can we stay fired up and keep going in this world of incessant change, increasing complexity, competition, and speed? Be the sun, synergize yourself! Remember, energy is the bottom line of life – for continued aliveness, and sustainable success in all endeavors from health to money, personal growth to relationships. With energy, anything is possible. The rule of energy is that “energy rules!”
Curiously and synchronistically on an esoteric level, the year 2013 numerologically adds up to the number six, which in the ancient Hebrew Kabalah “tree of life,” is represented by the letter, “Vav” that means connection, the hook that holds everything together and unified. In the venerable tarot “wisdom map of life,”the number six is the VI Lovers archetype card. The Lovers is all about connection, integration, unification, healing, teaming, partnering, cooperating, co-creating, collaborating. In a word, all this means wholeness, which in turn is synergistic.
Living wholistically and synergistically is the key step for living well and living long, for surviving and thriving (sustaining) because it fulfills the holy grail of today, being able to “RE” yourself and all aspects of your life. “Re” means able to reflect, rejuvenate, renew, restart, reinvent, repeat, re, re, re. This is all good in theory, and it’s real, it’s the truth, but how do we apply these principles in our daily life?
