So many times, I have written about the holy mystical number of 613 (the number of commandments in the Torah) and variations/transpositions on these numbers (316, 163, etc.).
My wife and I continue to see 613 all the time and everywhere!
Prices, receipts, license plates, accounts balances, stock price changes, lottery winnings, bar codes, time of day, wait times, schedules, number of email, rows in a spreadsheet, road numbers, social media views, etc. etc. etc.
– I have questioned myself over and over whether I am seeing it because I am sensitized to it or simply even looking for it at this point.
The answer is a definite no!
Here’s a recent example, of the change in the stock price for Teva Pharmaceuticals (above)–it’s exactly -.0613!
But this isn’t a one time event or a fluke.
As we all know stock prices fluctuate every moment on the marketplace. Yet, when I check at completely different and random times, it is up or down by a variation of 613!
Other times, I’ll check multiple stocks… and they will simultaneously be moving or priced at variations again of 613–at the exact same moment, I repeat, different stocks priced at the exact same moment.
Here’s another non-financial example:
I did a post a few weeks ago on the critical importance of emergency preparedness.
Look at how many views it got on LinkedIn…exactly 163!
This happens everywhere and all the time!
Here’s a third example:
A license plate.
Here’s a fourth example:
Can you see the code on the package…613!
A fifth example:
A tracking code on a shipment.
A sixth example:
A bar code on a bottle of Life Water.
A seventh example:
A label on some spinach!
An eighth example:
A construction site.
An ninth example:
A public solicitation for the Department of Energy.
A tenth example:
The winning pot for Powerball.
Hey, I am not superstitious and I am not OCD–seriously.
But this happens all the time.
I cannot help but think that G-d is sending us an important message.
From a personal level, my wife and I have both tried to take the messages seriously and to continue to improve our lives–albeit we know, we are far from perfect human beings.
However, we also feel compelled to share this message more broadly.
There is a lot going on in the world, and could this mean something bigger and more consequential to a lot more people?
Please, please, please, G-d have mercy on your children…we are but flesh and blood…and we desire to do good.
