“A numerology reading involves a lot of calculations. These calculations can go into many layers of depth with different numbers and combinations of numbers carrying various meanings. Even a basic reading based on your core numbers can be quite revealing. However, in the same manner, that numbers are infinite, someone’s numerology chart can continue to be read from many perspectives as an ongoing project.
“How numerology works is actually quite complicated and usually requires a master numerologist to provide detailed and accurate readings. Though you can easily find your life path number and things like your expression, personality, and soul urge numbers using basic calculations, it is the way that these numbers work together that need to be interpreted properly.
The idea behind numerology is that the cosmos and your life is affected by your birth date, birth name, and many other factors surrounding an individual. In this way, there are great depths that a numerology forecast can provide. Consequently, it can provide often astounding insights about somebody.
It is believed that there are no coincidences in the Universe that your name and birthday affect the journey that you will take and your characteristics, in the same way, that some look at horoscopes or astrology to interpret signs or destinies.”
If you don’t know where you are going, you might end up someplace else.. even though all paths lead home..
For the path forms itself under your very feet, in every Now, with each step that you take or do not take, rejoicing in your unique journey, celebrating you exactly as you are today, bowing to your failures as well as your victories.

You pick yourself up, you dust yourself off, you get back on the path, and you walk on.
You never left the path, if truth be told.
For the path never left… you.
Not all storms came to destroy your life they came to carve the path home...
Don’t make my path your path.. All paths lead home..
The Dark Night of the Soul is a period of utter spiritual desolation, disconnection, and emptiness in which one feels totally separated from the Divine. Those who experience the Dark Night feel completely lost, hopeless, and consumed with melancholy. The Dark Night of the Soul can be likened to severe spiritual depression (it’s a type of spiritual emergency.)
Traditionally, the Dark Night of the Soul refers to the experience of losing touch with God/Creator and being plunged into the abyss of godless emptiness. The modern understanding of having a Dark Night of the Soul, however, is not exclusively a religious one, but can often mean losing all meaning in life, feeling out-of-touch with the Divine, feeling betrayed or forsaken by Life, and having no solid or stable ground to stand on.
The path isn’t a straight line, it can be seen as a spiral. You continually come back to the things you thought you understood and see eeper truths..
Hope For The Journey Ahead
Cairns are simple rock formations, used as landmarks to guide travelers along a path or to mark a sacred place. Cairns are some of the most universal manmade structures, and the practice of making cairns goes back thousands of years. From the Arctic territories of the Inuit to temples in Korea, cairns have been spotted all over the world.
Cairns have evolved as symbols of friendship, safety, and direction. They offer guidance for those wandering life’s path. To stumble upon a cairn is to know that you aren’t alone, that someone has traversed the same terrain you now find yourself on. In this way, cairns remind us to never give up, that the journey is yours to make as long as you keep traveling.
“So what is a soul mate? In my experience, this is what really defines a soul mate:
-Soul mates are your best friends. They’re also your romantic and sexual partners. (You can also have very deep connections with friends, family members and animals – I refer to these as soul friends – but other people also refer to them as soul mates).
-Soul mates are your mirrors. They reflect back to you your own flaws, insecurities, dreams and strengths to help you grow to the fullest. You can rely on them to be honest with you, completely honest, even to the point of not sparing your feelings because they care about you that much.
-Soul mates are your spiritual catalysts. They don’t complete you, but they do help you to become the best version of yourself possible. Why don’t they complete you? Because you are already complete at your core, and throughout the course of your life you are in the process of rediscovering that.
-Soul mates are your confidants and teachers. Sometimes the lessons they teach are intentional, but often the lessons they teach are unintentional and are a by-product of your relationship with them. Because they understand you so deeply, soul mates also make powerful confidants, helping you through tough times and inspiring you to do and be your very best.
-Soul mates feel very “familiar.” This is possibly because you have spent many past lives with them. Something between the two of you just clicks, as though you have been friends and lovers forever.
-Soul mates often know you better than you know yourself. Therefore, they can empathize with you at a core level.
-Soul mates vibrate at the same frequency as you. This is just a fancy way of saying that soul mates not only share your likes, tastes and goals, but they also share your deeper life values, beliefs and dreams. You both “get” each other on a DNA level.
-Soul mates love you unconditionally. You also love them unconditionally. Although it may not be possible for soul mates to always stay together, it is impossible for soul mates to harbor feelings of hatred for each other for long periods of time. Despite what they do, you still love them, and they still love you.
-Soul mates aren’t perfect. They have their annoying flaws, gross habits and strange quirks, but they are still amazing people deep down.
-Soul mates aren’t always immediately recognizable. Love at first sight isn’t a myth, but it also isn’t the only way you can discover who your soul mate is. Often soul mates appear in various “disguises” in our lives.
-Soul mates don’t always stay with you for a lifetime. This is an extremely harmful myth that I’d love to squash once and for all! Soul mates don’t always stay until the end, but this is not a bad thing. We like to think that our lovers will be there forever because it is a comforting and sentimental thought. But sometimes life has different plans for us. Unfortunately the destruction of this ideal has wrought untold amounts of misery in people’s lives that I have witnessed firsthand. Sometimes soul mates are there for only a season, and sometimes they are there for a lifetime. But whatever the case, enjoy the ride.
-There is the possibility to find multiple soul mates – although most people only tend to find one person who they are deeply compatible with. I personally have never had more than one soul mate/twin flame, so I can’t speak from experience. But I have known other people who have claimed to have had multiple profound relationships.”
“George Ivanovich Gurdjieff (January 13, 1866–1877? – October 29, 1949), also commonly referred to as Georges Ivanovich Gurdjieff and G. I. Gurdjieff, was an influential spiritual teacher of the early to mid 20th century who taught that most humans live their lives in a state of hypnotic “waking sleep”, but that it is possible to transcend to a higher state of consciousness and achieve full human potential. Gurdjieff developed a method for doing so, calling his discipline “The Work” (connoting “work on oneself”) or “the Method”. According to his principles and instructions, Gurdjieff’s method for awakening one’s consciousness is different from that of the fakir, monk or yogi, so his discipline is also called (originally) the “Fourth Way”. At one point, he described his teaching as being “esoteric Christianity.””
“If you have ever studied the ideas of George Gurdjieff you most likely have come upon the strange expression of “feeding the moon.” It represents a sophisticated grasp of universal cosmic law, so understanding what this phrase means can offer important new insights for spiritual evolution and the regeneration of contemporary human beings. It is also my belief that the visionary discoveries of scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg can offer important clues toward helping us in deciphering this unusual phrase.
I have written three books. The purpose of each of my books is to unify knowledge. My first book, Sermon From The Compost Pile, unifies theology and spiritual growth with organic and sustainable gardening techniques.
My second book, Proving God, offers unique approaches towards unifying the newest theories of science with the newest revelations in theology.
My third book, Swedenborg & Gurdjieff: The Missing Links, attempts to unify the unique ideas of both Emanuel Swedenborg and George Gurdjieff, especially when it comes to the important topic of personal spiritual transformation.
So, without writing an entire book, let me try to explain what “feeding the moon” means within the limited space of this short blog post. It will not be easy.
Both men put forth the idea that God’s life-giving and creative forces (influx) descend from a non-material heavenly realm into the external and lower corporeal bodily senses of all humans. Unfortunately, when humankind has the focus of their attention only on outward and external things—rather than the inner growth of spirit—human life reverses its true cosmic responsibility and feeds a reality that stands outside of us, much like the moon operates outside the earth.
“Feeding the moon” represents something about our abnormal and inverted behavior. The moon symbolizes knowledge that we accumulate for promoting selfish and worldly ends. This activity keeps knowledge from feeding our inner spirits, and instead, feeds our external, corporeal/sensual personality. This outer personality, which is learned from our adapting to the external world, merely manipulates memory-data and mechanizes our actions in order to put up a false front.
“Feeding the moon” symbolizes feeding this false front and memory manipulation.
Swedenborg described memory knowledge as being similar to food in the stomach. Physical food does not become a part of one’s bodily fabric until it has been metabolized and enters the bloodstream. So food in the stomach represents aliment/sustenance that is still outside of us. Similarly, knowledge in the memory represents data that is still outside of us because it has not metabolized properly until it sustains and supports the soul—that is, feeds the deeper life of spiritual and angelic love. (Technically, Swedenborg would state that this perversion of memory data starves one’s spiritual “remains,” but that is another topic.)
When we turn away from God’s teachings of mutual love and humility our perception of reality becomes upside-down and our focus has its attention on outer, worldly things (that are outside of us) rather than inner, spiritual things.
Gurdjieff used the moon to illustrate this perverted predicament (this is where the term “lunatic” comes from). Even Swedenborg suggested that the moon symbolized a belief system (faith/knowledge) without love because it merely reflected the sun’s light and lacked the sun’s heat and was, therefore, not the real source of these two cosmic qualities, which further symbolize both the higher spiritual influences of enlightenment and love’s warmth—which come from the God of heaven.
Don’t feed the moon!”
