I have read many of the commentaries written about Robin Williams over the past few days and all of them express what an exemplary human being he was from his comedic talent to his generosity and gracious giving.
I sat down beside him one day here in San Francisco when I was purchasing a pair of running shoes at a shoe shop called “On The Run,” which had been rumored to be where Robin purchased some of his running shoes. I didn’t go there because of that, and that day I just happened to sit down on the little bench facing the checkout counter where Mr. Williams was sitting trying on a pair of shoes, too. Through my peripheral vision, I noticed that the man sitting next to me had a very hairy arm that was adorned with a knitted friendship bracelet. I thought instantly, OMG! This must be Robin Williams. Not wanting to disrupt his privacy, I looked at the clerk behind the checkout counter and mouthed the words, “Is that Robin Williams?” with my eyes likely looking like a deer caught in headlights. The clerk nodded “Yes.” Fortunately, I didn’t inflict myself upon him. I just continued to try on the shoes and then got up and purchased them and left. I have had encounters with other famous people in San Francisco for whom I wasn’t as contained and seemingly nonchalant, but I was pleased that I didn’t become the buffoon that I might have been in Mr. Williams’ presence.
I also had the opportunity of viewing him performing with Sharon Stone at a Glide Memorial Charity Auction for which he and Ms. Stone volunteered themselves for the cause. Mr. Williams, being 5’5″ tall, and Ms. Stone, being 5’10′ tall and in heels, were a rather interesting combo to view. Mr. Williams’ height, however, was the last thing that made an impression once he stepped onto the stage. As usual, his presentation was grand and glorious to watch.
A Numerological Perspective of Mr. Williams
Mr. Williams’ name number was a 4. The name number represents how one presents oneself in their career and in society. The number 4 is a down-to-earth, non-pretentious, forthright mode of expression for which his friends validated in their tributes to him.
His birth “day” number was the 21. The 2 represents his kind, caring, and nurturing nature, coupled with the 1 which represents originality and innovativeness. The 21 reduces to 3 (2+1 = 3) is the number of self-expression, a heighten imagination, and creativity. Mr. Williams certainly typified each of those traits.
His “destiny” number was the 8. The destiny number is the most powerful of all the numbers in a numerological chart and Mr. Williams’ was the quintessential example of what an 8 represents, i.e., the exemplar, Chairman of the Board, the teacher of teachers, the quality operator, and the Class Act. The only drawback for those with the 8 destiny who exhibit such aplomb and exuberance as Mr. Williams was prone to do, is that as high as they might elevate themselves with their grandiosity and aplomb, the harder and farther they fall when their “stage curtain” is pulled. The number 8 destiny is the one number vibration most prone to depression.
On a lighter note, people with 8 destinies are the most gracious and giving of all because the number 8 is the highest and most powerful vibration of the female-oriented numbers (those being the even numbers 2, 4, 6 and 8, in the number set of 1 through 9). This female orientation imbues those with 8 destinies with a high and righteous spirit that is ready to leap to the aid of any animal or human in need like no other number vibration would or, in some cases, could. They are incomparable in their innate quest and spontaneous response to give a helping hand and Mr. Williams certainly conveyed those kinds of soulful and selfless actions. He was truly a tribute to all mankind and it is heartwarming to learn of his legacy.
