Eleven is my lucky number, do you know this? I think it may be mom’s as well. Seven is another. 7-11…perhaps I should be the CEO of that, huh?
Supposedly, the number seven is one of the most significant numbers in the Holy Bible (besides the number one, the number seven is used more than all the others in it). In music, there are seven notes in the musical scale. Rolling dice for luck (or gambling), the seven has the highest probability of occurring as an addition. There are seven colors in the rainbow,seven continents, seven stars in the constellation, seven days in a week, seven rows in the periodic table, and of course the Seven Wonders of The World. Seven also represents the year of my birth (’77).
As for eleven, well it’s the master number. Eleven is duality when broken down (1+1=2). You have September 11th (9+1+1 = 11), 11:11 on December 21st, 2012 the Mayan calendar ends (and some people think the world will end), football and soccer are played with 11 players on the field, and in Buddhism there are eleven groups of kindness (a man entered the Way, the two Truths, the three Gates of Delivery, the four Truths of the correct Law, the five faculties, the six Authorities, the seven Members of the Illumination, the eight Members of the Path, the nine Residences of the Being, the ten Forces of the Realized and the eleven Deliverances of the Heart full of love).
More importantly, though, in eleven days we celebrate your remarkably short life. If love could have kept you alive, Jeffrey, you would have lived forever.
