Never would I have thought I would start
writing at 73 years of age. I have thoroughly enjoyed my voyage into the written spirituality of poetry and am thankful for the opportunity.  In my six years here I have met many new and wonderful persons. Having them accept me as a friend has been a moving experience.


Mathematics of Success

Blog Posted:1/21/2013 7:36:00 PM




































We use knowledge, hardwork and attitude to get ahead in life. But how much do they really contribute percentage wise?

Assuming the alphabet letters to all equal the numbers 1-26 ie: a=1, b=2, c=3 etc., then if you consider the words knowledge, hard work and attitude, substituting the letters with corresponding numbers of 1-26 it would look like this.

knowledge=11+14+15+23+!2+5+4+7+5=96 per cent

hardwork = 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11=98 per cent

attitude = 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5=100 per cent

So it looks as though attitude can take us to full output and maximum

accomplishment. However if we also consider the love of God

using the same code, it seems as though He can take us

beyond our limits.

 Love of God=12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4=101 per cent

    Chas, I love numbers this is great, and with the number nine everything you multiply it by the answer adds up to nine ...2x9=18=1+8=9

    And any number added to 9, breaks back down into its core: 6+9=15=1+5=6

    well, all I know is that numbers are very important in our lives. (since I am a big fan of numerology) and they all "add up!!"

    Doobie, wot a strange thing not to believe in. I mean, numbers are here in this blog, right before your eyes. Reality is numbers(binary sequences and patterns of particles/wave-lengths)and dimension. Numbers and dimension is wot reality is essentially comprised of.
