THE MEANING BEHIND MY LOGO
The UNCOMMON COACH logo in a spiral is based on the shape of a nautilus shell and is a powerful metaphor for spiritual evolution.
From the moment we are born and begin to crawl, we continuously discover, learn, and outgrow our previous thoughts and views of the world. To learn and grow requires us to think in a new or different way, essentially, to think “outside the box”.
Like the nautilus, once we’ve expanded our minds beyond the old box, we simply find ourselves in a new, bigger box, in which we continue to learn and grow.
We also find that once we have mentally moved into this new box, we can never go back to the smaller ones – they simply no longer fit us.
The nautilus can never stay in the same chamber because it continues to get bigger; it must build ever larger and larger chambers until the end of its life. And the spiral suggests that it can grow forever – there is never a design for a final chamber.
Similarly, we also must never stop growing, learning, and expanding, to stay in the same place would lead to a kind of spiritual death.
The spiral of the nautilus is not just any spiral. Measuring it reveals that it conforms to the shape of the Golden Ratio spiral, known as a “sacred geometry”.
It is considered sacred because it can be found in a wide variety of things in nature, such as the shape of our galaxy, of hurricanes, in the arrangements of sunflower seeds in the flower, in cauliflower, and pine cones.
It is also sacred because it is based on the Golden Ratio, which is one of life’s great mysteries because it can be found in all living things.
What is the Golden Ratio?
The Golden Ratio is based on the Fibonacci series, which is a series of numbers where the first two numbers add up to the succeeding number, like this: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, etc.
You can arrive at the Golden Ratio by dividing each number by the one before it and the further you go along the progression of numbers, the closer you get to the Golden Ratio number, which is 1.61803398…
Plato called this number “the key for the universe physics” and mysteriously, studies have shown that when this ratio is incorporated into artwork and architecture, humans seem to find it more beautiful and elegant.
That the ratio is found in all living things implies that it is part of a “blueprint” of the universe, something that underlies the foundation of all living things and which serves to connect them to each other and to a greater whole.
