In The Playground
(In this chapter of The Shining, Jack's crackup/healing begins in earnest as he trims the rabbit shaped hedge near The Overlook Hotel playground. After trimming and joking about giving the Rabbit a haircut, he steps back to appraise his work and while his back is turned, all the hedge animals begin moving toward him.)
Let's talk divorce.
As I look back at my work this past year, it appears that I've been advancing a philosophy at The Sync Whole. This isn't something that I set out to do. While following my flow I'm continually reminded how the NOW speaks to my previous explorations and adds more layers to these models--yet I think the culmination of this work yields wholeness, so I continue. . .
As a reminder, this past March, I looked at a number that I called the "architecture of the universe"--432. I had seen this number highlighted before, yet thought its playfulness hadn't been completely explored. One could view this exercise as a scientific dissection of a whole thing: ⊙, yet the aim was the opposite--to make the parts conscious of their entirety, to make them whole.
By my reckoning, The Whole (⊙) is born of 2 Parents, comprised of 3 Kingdoms, and exists as 4 elementary states of matter. When I say "Whole", it's a loaded word for it's a symbolic pointer, pointing to everything (wholeness), and nothing (an empty hole)--it represents being and nonbeing. It's me and you knowing that we are everything, and it's me knowing that I am you also knowing that what we truly are is emptiness.
The focus of this post will be the 2 Parents. MoM & PoP. Right Brain/Left Brain. Religion/Science intuition/logic. Mystery/History. We are the children of divorce. Our healing requires the illusion of their separateness to fade.
That said, it might be interesting to talk about some of the symbolic pointers that are used at The Sync Whole. Let's say you just stumbled upon that blog, your first impression might be that they are some weirdo Jupiter cult. jUPiter, it turns out, might mean something a little different to all of us.
Keep in mind that all possibilities are valid at The Sync Whole, and obvious associations tend to ring as truth. Thus, the cheerful and friendly quality of "jovial" is ascribed upon Jove/Jupiter.Jupiter |ˈjoōpitər|1 Roman Mythology the chief god of the Roman state religion, originally a sky god associated with thunder and lightning. His wife was Juno. Also called Jove . Greek equivalent Zeus . [ORIGIN: Latin, fromJovis pater, literally ‘Father Jove.’ ]2 Astronomy the largest planet in the solar system, a gas giant that is the fifth in order from the sun and one of the brightest objects in the night sky.

In Roman mythology, Jupiter or Jove was the king of the gods, and the god of sky and thunder. He is the equivalent of Zeus, in the Greek pantheon. He was called Iuppiter (or Diespiter) Optimus Maximus ("Father God the Best and Greatest") As the patron deity of ancient Rome, he ruled over laws and social order.Iuppiter originated as a vocative compound of the Old Latin vocative *Iou and pater ("father") and came to replace the Old Latin nominative case *Ious. Jove is a less common English formation based on Iov-, the stem of oblique cases of the Latin name. Linguistic studies identify the form *Iou-pater as deriving from the Indo-European vocative compound *Dyēu-pəter (nominative: *Dyēus-pətēr meaning "O Father Sky-god").Older forms of the deity's name in Rome were Djeus-pater (“day/sky-father”), then Diéspiter. Djeus is the etymological equivalent of ancient Greece's Zeus and of the Teutonics' Ziu, gen. Ziewes. The Indo-European deity is thus the god from which Zeus and the Indo-Aryan Vedic Dyaus Pita are derived.~Wikipedia: Jupiter
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
