What does it mean to be happy?
Even though so many of us bandy words with ease, our feelings often get buried without expression, then we doubt that happiness is for us. Is it possible to be responsible and stand in the light of happy? The very word tastes like froth in the mouth and yet paralyzes us in fear. Happy beckons and we settle for being just okay some of the time, because that is all we deserve. Why is it easier to believe we are worthy of unhappiness, sucked into the pressure of not measuring up, while resenting renting that space? Society says happiness is an illusion, a crock at an impossible end of the rainbow.
Does that mean happy is only for a fortunate few?
I believe there is a highway to happy, and anyone can walk that road. It will probably take work, since that dreary boxed in state of unhappy didn't just happen. It took time and lots of energy, and no doubt is still draining your resources. If you are willing to accept a different kind of responsibility, not the one you have been force fed since birth about keeping everyone else happy. That is the crock that won't color a rainbow plus the comfort of owning that life sucks. Responding to your needs and nature means honoring who you are as a creative force, that vibrant voice that expands your personality, and requires a terrifying leap of faith. Are you willing to jump without a safety net?
The answer lies within the word Happy.
I am talking about the power of numbers. Every word has a vibration and a meaning, relating to a specific equation and root number. Take the word — Happy — using the Pythagorean system of numerology — where every letter follows the alphabet, so A=1, B=2, and so on, happy adds up to 30. Not only is 30 a number that vibrates to sprinkling happiness everywhere it goes, its root number is 3, which is in the emotional triad, which means it runs on feelings. Being happy requires you to know your feelings and express your inner creativity and let the emotional cat out of the bag. Three is the number of the child, birth and self expression. Imagine arriving at work, and your boss says don your apron we are going to make a mess, splatter paint, find your groove and birth your joy. That is the energy of three: joyful and electrifying.

The 30 need to be expressed manifests in either positive or not so positive ways, and here we have one third - 1/3 struggling to cope at work. Once more the three is at play, reminding us that because there is no play people struggle, to be heard, know who they are, or to feel anything that won't get them into trouble. That struggle shuts them down at work and at home.
The 30 with it's need for self expression repressed. Which translates into anger; when you can't say what you need to, anger bubbles to the surface. Since our society fears anger, most of us bottle it all inside us, and that leads to repression and depression.
The very word de-pression is about lack of expression. Pushing down or denying the voice, living in silence. Many of us live in a cesspool of hidden rage, poisoning our bodies, minds and hearts so we can fit in and be accepted. Suppressing the flow of spontaneous self, because it could make us a fool of us. Silence of the soul is death in life, and a familiar to at least a third of us. So happy at 30/3 asks us to find and master a creative form of self expression, including surrounding ourselves with beauty and inspiration so we can explore and express happiness. The “0” provides divine protection, which means if you jump a bridge will appear.
