The Year of 9: 9 and Words [#7]

Last week's blog post was, admittedly, a bit heavy. 

But necessary. 

For it is important to delve into the deepest and most dense parts of ourselves to truly be still.
Only then can we fully overstand the profound significance of numbers in the construction of our Universe. 

Now that a firm foundation has been established wherein we can clearly identify the many ways in which the number 9 takes shape within our lives on a daily basis, this post will explore the significance of nine as it pertains to words, communication and the Word.

We begin, as always, by Grounding.

The 9th letter of the Alphabet

 I, The Perfect Letter

Listen below to a few Words from Dr. K'nife:

In English,
I is how we identify our self.
The beginning of every sentence in which we seek to identify who we truly are.
Of what we do, feel, say, think, see, love, understand,
...ultimately become.

Here are a few Idioms and Proverbs using the number 9:

“I’m floating on cloud nine”

- feeling euphoric or happy.
Feeling Irie.

The phrase came into use in the 1950s when used by the US Weather Bureau to describe the highest cloud, the cumulo-nimbus.

“Nine times out of ten”

- an expression describing a likely probability.

“Going the whole nine yards”

- thought to originate from tailors using nine yards of material to make top quality suits.


“Dressed to the nines”

 - outfitted to the highest degree. 



In other words, 

and languages, the number 9 corresponds to notions of goodness, rightness and fullness.

 In the Hebrew alefbet, 
the ninth letter is tet - ט, which has the numerical value of nine. 
The least common letter in the Torah is a Tet.The first tet - ט that appears in the Torah is in the word tov of Genesis 1:4, normally translated as good, but a better meaning is beneficial.

 In the Bible,

 the number 9 symbolizes divine completeness or conveys the meaning of finality.

In the New Testament, 

namely Galatians 5:22, there are 9 fruits of the Spirit, 

which are Faithfulness, Gentleness, Goodness, Joy, Kindness, Long-suffering (Patience), Love, Peace and Self-control.

Twice in the Book of Acts the "ninth hour" (3 PM) is referred to as the hour of prayer.

Similarly Christ died upon the cross at the 9th hour of the day to make the way of salvation open to everyone.

The ultimate sacrifice for Darkness:
Becoming LIGHT. 

Embodied in the symbolical relevance of  the number 9 we discover yet another tier in our quest to unfold our True Selves:

I in I an I
