“ONE is the first physical number. As the only absolute number, it is the symbol of divine expression. It is the key to verbal self-expression and the expression of the ego as a microcosm of the divine (the macrocosm). It is the key to our communication skills.
TWO is the first spiritual (feeling) number. It represents the duality of humans and symbolises the gateway to our sensitivities, as well as our need to be part of a pair. It is the number of intuition.
THREE is the first mind (thinking) number. Following the primary verbal (1) and intuitive (2) expressions comes the mental. It is the gateway to the conscious mind and to rational understanding, the focus of left-brain activity, the key to memory. The number 3 is symbolised by the triangle, representing the connection of mind, soul and body.
FOUR is the number at the centre of the physical (doing) plane, the key to orderliness, practicality and organising. It is symbolised by the square, the basis of all practical construction.
FIVE is the centre of the soul (feeling) plane and the very centre of the“total Birth Chart. It is the spiritual number representing love and freedom of expression.
SIX is the centre of the mind (thinking) plane, where it represents creativity, the integration of the left and right lobes of the brain. It also represents the opposite of creativity – destruction. This is “negative” creativity expressed as worry, stress, anxiety and depression.
SEVEN is the symbol of the temple, the human body and its seven chakras or power centres. It is the teaching learning number, the number of practical philosophical experience. Such learning is usually acquired through sacrifice as the means of indelible instruction.
EIGHT is the most active spiritual number, situated at the active end of the soul plane. It is the number of wisdom expressed intuitively through loving action. It brings independence into focus.
NINE is the three-fold number at the action end of the mind plane. As mind in action, it represents ambition (the physical aspect), responsibility (the thinking aspect) and idealism (the spiritual aspect), and so combines the attributes of each of the previous numbers.
ZERO is a symbol rather than a number. The 0 is present in many birth “dates and has an important symbolic significance. Philosophically and mathematically, it represents nothing (as the numerator) and everything (as the denominator), the two infinite ends of the finite, neither of which is physically attainable. Thus, it is a totally mystical symbol, indicative of the degree of spiritual mysticism inherent (but rarely developed) in the individual. Anyone who has one or more zeros in their birth date has an inherent spirituality that they should recognise, for it has the potential to assist them in understanding many of the deeper aspects of life (such as life’s purpose, the power of thought and the process of reincarnation).”

When I read that, I realized, “That’s it.” That’s the central message of all wisdom.
You don’t have to die to go to Heaven. Heaven is on Earth. If you’re fucked up, if shit is floating by you, if poverty and self-hatred are breaking you down—you’re in Hell. Set yourself in Heaven at once.
