PERFECT BALANCE – Clean Energy Conservation Initiatives Week October 15, 2012
Star of David
The Star of David, known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David (Hebrew ×žÖ¸×’Öµ×Ÿ ×“Ö¸Ö¼×•Ö´×“; Biblical Hebrew MÄá¸¡Ä“n DÄwÄ«á¸, Tiberian [mÉ”ËˆÉ£en dÉ”ËˆviÃ°], Modern Hebrew [maËˆÉ¡en daËˆvid], Ashkenazi Hebrew and Yiddish Mogein Dovid [ËˆmÉ”É¡eÉªn ËˆdÉ”vid] or Mogen Dovid) is a generally recognized symbol of Jewish identity and Judaism. Its shape is that of a hexagram, the compound of two equilateral triangles. The hexagram has been in use as a symbol of Judaism since the 17th century, with precedents in the 14th to 16th centuries in Central Europe, where the Shield of David was partly used in conjunction with the Seal of Solomon (the hexagram) on Jewish flags. Its use probably derives from medieval (11th to 13th century) Jewish protective amulets (segulot).
The term “Shield of David” is also used in the Siddur (Jewish prayer book) as a title of the God of Israel.
Wellness, this is not as muchÂ ofÂ a post about religion and philosophy as it is about making effective use of resources that have already been provided andÂ are stillÂ effective in helping to better the quality of life for those who effectively apply the technologies that have existedÂ since the days of old.
In this particular case, what we see in the header imageÂ is simply two perfectlyÂ balanced blueÂ triangles, shapes and colorsÂ that like all shapes and colors,Â can be applied to the life experience of any human being who can perceive them and gain insight from their meanings,Â and since the focus for this week is Clean Energy Conservation, those who are responsible for managing the worlds economies and resources such as banks and hospitalsÂ in particular, know full and well that the solutions for mattersÂ that involveÂ giving and receiving are dependent on striking a perfect balance.
In closing, my belief is that the balance like all things, begins with focus, and it just soÂ happens to be the middle of the week (month – October 15)Â along with the fact that the colors of the image above perfectly matches the color scheme of this online publication along with the day time skies and oceans of this planetÂ with precision and perfect timing.
