The Pythagorean System and You January 10, 2016 – Posted in: Blog, Inspiration – Tags: cartomancy, karma, numerology, philosophy, Pythagoras, Pythagorean System, reincarnation, symbols and symbolism
Pythagoras was the founder of one of the most important school of mysteries, many of which few understand but that can unveil our path in life and the meaning we have to this world beyond our social identity or what we think about it. There are two ways to understand such mysteries, or, more precisely, two perspectives that come from one, which we can name as being conscience. This conscience then confronts itself and reflects itself in the outside, creating a counter-conscience. The counter-conscience is the other or others, them, the material manifestations, the material world, what we need and want, the negative in what we reject, the ego in what we praise and admire, the illusion of what we think and the adventure in how we live. That counter-conscience can, therefore, be known as a dependent conscience, being its opposite the independent conscience. It’s the interaction between both that leads to the higher conscience.
Summing the date of your birth will give you a number. If you reduce the month, day and year, each one to a single number, and then sum the three of them, and, if the number is above 21, sum it again, you’ll get a final number below or equal to 21, and that number represents the karma you were born with. There are 21 types of karma on planet earth and you can find yours by looking at the 21 major arcana in the tarot.
Karma isn’t something negative. Conscience arises from the combination between positive and negative, so your karma is merely your path. The word karma comes from the Sanskrit meaning of action, so this tells us that karma is what you need to do, solve and learn. And obviously, learning implies looking at the mistakes and problems and also correcting them. That is what you do, when reading a book on any topic, when learning to improve yourself in that path and reach a higher conscience of self.
Those that think they can become more spiritual by merely meditating are lunatic and practicing a very dangerous art that can easily lead to madness. You can’t reach a higher conscience of self without facing the other you, your reflection, the outside world, its books and knowledge, its people and experiences, and the emotions that come forth through such feedback.Forcing yourself to meditate with more powerful techniques, without this balance, exposes you to disaster, as that’s not how the nature of the spirit manifests in its full potential. In fact, knowledge can help you achieve much faster results in any meditative exercise and also help you meditate in many new forms that you weren’t aware of, such as when in contact with nature.

You have qualities and problems, and they’re both related to what you need to learn and read. That’s where a bookstore manifests its meaning in your life. Moreover, I truly believe that, if you’re reading this text, it’s because there was a need to read it, inasmuch as I believe that, if you go to the nearest library, you’ll find books that you should be reading. There’s a magnetic field constantly pulling us to our next experiences, and we are often unconscious about it, unconscious that is all around us.
What you accept will transform you while what you reject will force you to endure more pain. When you don’t read that book that is near you, waiting for you, your ignorance will manifest in the outside world, and strengthen its vibrational influence over you. That’s karma but a negative side of it, which emerges from your rejection of the positive side of karma, the independent conscience, the actions that are necessary to improve your life. Improvement is what higher conscience means.
When you become happier, more fulfilled, more successful and more at peace, you are in a higher ground, in a higher level of the mountain of life. But you can’t force the end without walking the path. You can attract resources, opportunities and experiences that will help you, but you still ultimately need to walk the path. You can get an audiobook if you don’t like to read, you can find someone to talk to you about a certain book that you don’t want to read, you can find a resume of the book you don’t want to have, but in the end, you still have to do something to acquire the knowledge, the information that will put you in a higher and broader perspective of yourself. And if you don’t know what that is, then look at your karmic number and you will see it. Each number has a meaning.
What the Pythagorean System shows us, especially through the works of Leonardo Da Vinci, is that ultimate beauty in life and art must follow necessary mathematical combinations. The outside world, what we see, the end result, is merely a visual manifestation of that process. And the interesting thing about it, is that it doesn’t require your belief to manifest itself. Either you like it or not, believe in it or not, your life is constantly reflecting your inner nature, and, the more you show a lack of inner conscience, the more the outer conscience will drag you to powerful dynamic experiences.
For many, this type of adventure and risk-taking is what makes them feel alive, but it’s just one part of life. The other is within. The flower needs the sun but the sun is important because of the flower, both complement themselves and it’s in this relation that beauty manifests.

When the heart beats strongly, there may be fear, excitement or love, and yet, the manifestation is the same, reason why our life experiences can combine these feelings. Fear can stop us from finding love and excitement in life, but also protect us from heartbreak and danger. On the other hand, a strong heartbeat tells us that we are alive, but also that we can die. When we were children, this heartbeat brought excitement with it, as when a relative brought us a gift. Then, as adults, love is the center of our attention, and what we seek the most while feeling in-between excitement and fear. But, finally, as we grow older, fear constantly dominates our perceptions.
The order of the emotions doesn’t have to be as the one described, and isn’t always as linear as it seems as well. The real meaning of life is always behind the emotions. They merely show us the inner self, the independent conscience, that lifelong friend that we barely noticed walking the path with us. He is a wise friend, but we barely hear him. We tend to be so worried at what others think that we become them, not us anymore. And that is the only reason why we believe that this friend is out there, in the one we love, in our best friends, in our life purpose, while the truth is that it was always within, and it’s merely who we are. The fear of loneliness is indeed the fear of self.
