Simple Math: One With God

I was lying in bed this morning, not able to fall back asleep even though it was still dark outside.  For no obvious reason, I started thinking about adding the numbers 1 through  10 and figuring out what the answer was.
 At first I tried to add 1+2+3+4, etc. and gave up as hopeless.  I couldn't remember where I left off to add the next number.

Then I remembered my high school remedial math class and a short cut they offered to figure it out.

1       2     3     4     5
 9       8     7        10
                                                                 10     10   10   10  15   =  55

Cool huh?  Then my mind started wandering towards numerology and I was thinking, hmmmm...
5  + 5 = 10 and using the 10 and bringing it to its lowest single digit number, figured  1 + 0 = 1.  The number one is seen as the God figure, the beginning, the creation.

No big revelation but my mind continued to wander...  In  the astrology and numerlogy classes I took eons ago, my teacher explained that man is a five-figured symbol, a head, two arms and two legs, like a star.  Five is the number of challenge and sacrifice, which is, I suppose, the reason that we are put on this earth.

So, Who's presence was announced by the greatest and brightest star of all?  Jesus.  Could He also be a 5, the one who would be the most challenged and have to make the greatest sacrifice? 

And what happens when we allow Him in our lives and follow Him.  Do our energies vibrate and become a 10 and hence, one with God?  Didn't He say in John 14:20, "In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you..."
