Matthias Roth on SEL 13

In issue Number 16, Spring 1997, Matthias Roth wrote of his experience of Safety Energy Lock 13:

Opposite ten on the bust line, there is 13.

“Heaven” it is called, or spirit. It is the appetite of soul for something new.

What got you into Heaven is your twelve. “Thy will be done”, you said, and got attuned to the direction of the voice within. “Thy will be done”, you said, and became a surfer on the ocean of life, following the waves smoothly. “Thy will be done” – as you gave up control, the creative powers of thirteen began to unfold within you – an appetite to look beyond duality, no separation. Fertility arises when separation yields to union for a least a moment. 13, made up of 1 for unity and 3 for trinity, leads back to unity through the power of 3. In 1, 2, 3, the “cosmic waltz” melts seeming opposites together into one again. And then it’s “Heaven, I’m in Heaven…” Oh, he must have known about thirteen, heavenly Fred (Astaire)!

The Heaven of imagination: the image that I have of me, my body, my life or of the world can all change. And that will change the form and world that I experience. Such power of transformation and renewing lies in 13. One step further, once renewing has become a habit, 13 turns into my fountain of youth and creativity is second nature. As “love thine enemies”, 13 brings the understanding that inside and outside are the same. Has it occurred to you that there is only one 13 flow, combining right and left? No separation! “Enemies” – be they labels, things or people – are neither good nor bad. They are simply mirrors, they are not separate from me and they stay until I realize, change MYSELF, and I become immune.

At any time, what is not mine will go away. An ancient proverb says, “If you desire to know what your thoughts were yesterday, look at your body today. If you want to know what your body will be tomorrow, look at your thoughts today.” 13 is thought and spirit and changes form.

13 is growth and development and changes life. 13 is CREATOR’S NUMBER, boundless in its applications. It is an appetite for boundlessness. It is Middle Finger.

Thank you, Matthias.
