THE FIRST "ONES"
Today is one of those days that you can't forget its number: 1/11/11. There will be another ONE day this year: 11/1/11.
Each year has at least one day that is numerically memorable: 10/10/10, 9/9/99, and so on.
Numbers have such a significant place in our society, it's hard to get away from them, If you have a vehicle, you have a license plate number. After you are born, you get a Social Security number. Later you get an address number, a phone number, and a driver's license number.
Stop and think of all the times you run into numbers: dates on a calendar are numbers; look at the numbers on your watch; and be sure to count to ten slowly before you get upset. As you drive, you see the mile marker numbers go up or down as you go east or west, north or south. There are numbers on every exit ramp on local or state routes.
Numbers are a numerologist's playground. For example, eleven is a Master Number in Astrology and Numerology; it possesses the qualities of intuition, patience, honesty, sensitivity, and spirituality. The sun spot cycle repeats about every 11 years. Eleven, in the 12 Step Program, is a step of meditation and courage. A rocket must travel at over 11km per second to escape the earth's gravity. World War I ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. The television shows Cheers and MASH both ran for 11 seasons and both had 11 main characters.
So since today is the day of elevens, I wish you all would be honest, patient, and sensitive to others, to all those you are angry with, to all those who are hurting for one reason or another, and for the recent events which have shown an general anger building which has no place in our civilized society. Happy Eleven.
