A council generated proposals that would either pass or not pass. When they were named 22, 24 and 25, they did not pass (blocked). When they wanted a proposal to pass, they renamed it number 23, and it passed easily and quickly.
There are several associations to this that all seem to point in the same direction
- From my time reading I Ching and daoist literature, I remember…
2 = body
3 = mind
2+3 = body and mind together (living from the larger whole)
When body and mind are brought together, everything flows.
- 23 is a prime number. One that is complete in itself, and prime – primary. When I am clear about my priorities, and place emphasis on what is of primary importance, I can more easily make a decision.
- And 23 was a year where I felt everything coming together: relationships, mind/body work (tai chi, chi gong, Tibetan meditation practice), art, studies (psychology at UiO).
Intention + mind/body together = change
