Toward a Higher Fidelity -
A Burning Bush/Tree of Life finds the fire and bush dancing together without either partner being consumed or extinguished.
Within the flaming bush is a 3-petalled flower with the Hebrew letters cHet, Yud, Alef - a 3-lettered form resonant with “Life.” They stand for the Hebrew words cHupa, YecHida & Umanut: "Marriage Canopy," "Unicity" (the most developed aspect of soul) & "Craftsmanship" (from the same root as emet - “truth”, emuna - “absolute trust” & amen -
“it is so”).
The tree root contains the words ha'mishalishim b’shalosh - "the One who triplicates in 3's." The cup holds the word kiddushin - the Aramaic feminine plural word meaning "marriage." The palmate form above contains the letter Shin, a fire letter formed by 3 flames and resonates to the numeric value of 300 in gematria. Perhaps it refers to what David Whyte, in his book The Three Marriages calls “the marriage of marriages” - a still higher octave of integrated human potential reached when one has unified, without compromise, the full expression of each of the three aspects of personal, holy unfoldment.
