“Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.” Joseph Addison
Good things come in threes
Three turtle doves, glowing deer
From sun, moon, and sky
Eyes lift up … eternity
Three Magi bear gifts
Three is a divine and lucky number. If you believe in the blessings and meaning of threes, then you probably consider it a magical number that holds enormous power and yet brings harmony and good fortune to all. When I think of Three, the Holy Trinity and the triangular shape of the Ancient Egyptian pyramids come to mind.
It is significant in another way; it reminds us of the three stages of life; birth, growth and death. There is something about three that creates a sense of the balancing of energies. Whether we consider the seat of power in government, or the Holy Trinity, the vibration of the number three is considered one of spiritual balance.
“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” Confucius
Irish love for Threes
A lucky three leaf Shamrock
Precious gifts unfold…
Balance found in threes
From power seat to clover
A fellow blogger friend shared that Three is the magic number for Ireland and that it is reflected in the Shamrock. The Irish and many others believe in the sacredness and good that comes in threes. In a previous post; The Power Of Threes, I had shared how three is considered a powerful and sacred number in numerology. If we look at the US Federal Government, it is made up of three important branches: the legislative, executive and judicial arms. Each branch plays a critical role in maintaining peace, balance and harmony. We can imagine the balance of heaven and earth; the sky above, life forms in the middle, and the earth that sustains us. What comes to mind when you think of threes?
