Twenty One

Properties of the number 21

Symbol of the person centered on the object and either on himself.

Number of the perfection by excellence, 3 x 7, according to the Bible.

Symbol representing the unknown superiors or the great spiritual Masters of the humanity.

This number "contains the ratios of the principle of individuality 1 with the cosmic differentiation 20", according to R. Allendy. These ratios would constitute an act of organization - 2 + 1 = 3: "Thus the principle of individuality, placed between the world of the spirit and that the matter, realizes in itself the meeting of both." Represent the harmony of the creation.

Number representing the union of Trinity, whose result of their common action makes emerge the creation.

For Claude of Saint-Martin, "the number 21 is the number of destruction or rather of universal termination, because, as 2 is separated from 1, it is necessary that it has a means of to unite there if it wants it. This number shows at the same time the command of the production of things and their end, as well in the spiritual one as in the corporal one."

The "21, the highest possible number of 3 in the corporal, is in relation with the spiritual and shows the quality of the renewal", according to Eckartshausen.

Number representing the maturity and the responsibility for an individual. It expresses also the notion of chief.

It is the numbered representation of God and the Temple, and for this reason it is considered by the esoteric texts as a divine number or sacred.

‎21 associations include coming of age, as a young adult in the larger world, the 21st Century, the card game 21 and the game point in basketball. 3 * 7 has a triple seven effect, like winning the jackpot. In marriage, two and baby makes one. For myself, using 2 + 1 = 3, I am given two perspectives, light and darkness for example, and I come to third way that excludes neither polarity but chooses the enlightenment, blissful illumination, as my truth of being. 21 is the highest level we reach as embodied individual human beings, the World (tarot) symbolic of culmination and paradise regained. The 6th Realm of consciousness completed: 1+2+3+4+5+6=21
