The number 3 seems to be an important number that is associated with "creation" and "divinity". Another number associated with divinity/heaven is
the number 7. For some reason these two numbers are - in ALMOST all cultures ancient and present - seen as GOOD numbers. According to the bible 3 is
the number of creation, when something is said 3 times, it happens or confirmed. In Ancient Egyptian/Greek Hermeticism "Hermes Trismegistus" is
called "thrice (3 times) great".
In The Legend of Zelda, the Triforce is governed by the Three Spirits of Creation which are "Wisdom" , "Power", and "Courage". When you think
about it, it makes sense.
Power would be Life/Spirit/Force/Essence.
Wisdom would be Balance/Love.
Courage would be Action/Movement.
In Christianity, the Triforce (Three Powers as One) would be God which is the creator or life essence, The Holy Spirit which is the Love/Balance or
Giver of Wisdom, and The Son which had the courage to stay connected to Power (God/Creator) and Wisdom (Holy Spirit).
In Hinduism, The Triforce (Three Powers as One) would be Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu.
Brahma is the Creator, the Life-Giver (Power - Life/Creation).
Vishnu is the Maintainer (Wisdom - Balance/Love)
Shiva is The Transformer (Courage - Action)
God (Power - Life)
Man - (Courage - Action)
Soul - (Wisdom - Love/Balance)
Body (Courage - Action/Movement)
Spirit (Power - Life force, essence)
Mind (Wisdom - Peace/Love/Balance)
Red (Power), Blue (Wisdom), Yellow/Green (Courage) - The three primary colors.
To me, it seems that COURAGE is the most important because without COURAGE you will not use the power nor would you apply the wisdom. It takes courage
to know when to apply and actually use the power.
