The expression or destiny for #7:
Thought, analysis, introspection, and seclusiveness are all characteristics of the expression number 7. The hallmark of the number 7 is a good mind, and especially good at searching out and finding the truth. You are so very capable of analyzing, judging and discriminating, that very little ever escapes your observation and deep understanding. You are the type of person that can really get involved in a search for wisdom or hidden truths, often becoming an authority on whatever it is your are focusing on. This can easily be of a technical or scientific nature, or it may be religious or occult, it matters very little, you pursue knowledge with the same sort of vigor. You can make a very fine teacher, or because of a natural inclination toward the spiritual, you may become deeply emerged in religious affairs or even psychic explorations. You tend to operate on a rather different wavelength, and many of your friends may not really know you very well. The positive aspects of the 7 expression are that you can be a true perfectionist in a very positive sense of the word. You are very logical, and usually employ a quite rational approach to most things you do. You can be so rational at times that you almost seem to lack emotion, and when you are faced with an emotional situation, you may have a bit of a problem coping with it. You have excellent capabilities to study and learn really deep and difficult subjects, and to search for hidden fundamentals. At full maturity you are likely to be a very peaceful and poised individual.

If there is an over supply of the number 7 in your makeup, the negative aspects of the number may be apparent. The chief negative of 7 relates to the limited degree of trust that you may have in people. A tendency to be highly introverted can make you a bit on the self-centered side, certainly very much self-contained . Because of this, you are not very adaptable, and you may tend to be overly critical and intolerant. You really like to work alone, at your own pace and in your own way. You neither show or understand emotions very well.

Your Soul Urge number is: 7

A Soul Urge number of 7 means:
With a number 7 Soul Urge you are very fond of reading, and retreating to periods of being alone and away from the disruptions of the outer world. You like to dream and develop you idealistic understandings, to study and analyze, to gain knowledge and wisdom. You may be too laid back and withdrawn to really succeed in the business world, and you will be much more comfortable in circumstances that are tolerant of your reserve, your analytical approach, and your desire to use your mind rather than your physical being.

You are very timid around people that you don’t know very well, so much so at times that casual conversation and social situations can be strained. You tend to repress your emotions to the extend that some people have a good bit of difficult understanding you. You tend to be very selective with friends and you don’t easily adapt to new environments or to new people very quickly.

The negative traits of the 7 include becoming too much the introvert and isolated from others.

Your Inner Dream number is: 1

An Inner Dream number of 1 means:
You dream of being a leader and one who is in charge. You want to be known for your courage, daring, and original ideas. You seek unconquered heights. People may get a first impression that you are very aggressive and sure of yourself.

The Void

A while ago I had a small epiphany about the void as a fundamental creative force. I was thinking about my long term employed status versus some of the entrepreneurial enterprises I am involved in.

The place where I work would probably have to called a small to medium sized business; not huge but not ‘mom and pop’ either, probably about 80 employees in two locations. The business literally started in the owners garage. After a few jobs that didn’t work out and a few joint ventures that fell apart, the owner figured ‘Well, I can’t do any worse than these other guys’ and set out on his own.

Because that business has survived since, I’ve had a steady paycheck and a short commute for several years. My boss had a void to fill, I haven’t.

My martial arts instructor has a similar story. The martial arts school he started out in ended up closing amidst scandal – the certificates even turned out to be fake. He went to extraordinary measures to complete his black belt, and then floated around for a while, eventually coming to a series of teaching positions that got organized under the name his own school. If his original school had been stayed open, I might be training there instead, and the Academy of Hosinsul would never exist.

In the marital arts themselves, the void shows up. If you want to put someone on the ground, you often need to make a place for him to fall. A hole in one’s defenses could be described as a void as well.

Years ago, I did a lot of things to fill the void – programming and game design mainly. Now, my life is rather full, and these interests compete with myriad other pursuits.
