""Professor: "You are a Christian aren’t you son?" Student "Yes sir." "So you believe in God?" "Absolutely sir." "Is God good"? "Sure." "Is God all powerful?" "Yes."
“My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to heal others who are ill. But God didn’t. How is this God good then?… You can’t answer, can you? Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good?” “Yes.” “Is satan good?” “No.” “Where does satan come from?” “From God.” “Yes.” “Evil is everywhere isn’t it? And God did make everything. Correct?” “Yes.” “So who created evil? … Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All those terrible things exist in the world, don’t they” “Yes sir.” “So who created them?… Science says you have five senses. Senses you have to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me son, have you ever seen God?” “No sir.” “Have you ever felt you God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?” “No sir, I’m afraid I haven’t.” “Yet you still believe in Him?” “Yes.” “According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol,Science says your God doesn’t exist. What do you say to that son?” “Nothing. I only have my faith.” “Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.”

Professor, is there such a thing as heat? “Yes.” And is there such a thing as cold? “Yes.” “No, sir. There isn’t…. Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further than that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it. … What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?” “What is night if there isn’t darkness?” “You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and it’s called darkness, isn’t it? In reality,darkness isn’t. If it is, well you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you? So what is the point you are making, young man? Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed. Flawed? Can you explain how? Sir you are working on the premise on duality. You argue there is life and there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey? If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes of course I do. Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir? … Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavour. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher? Is there anyone in this class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain? Is there anyone who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it ?No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?” “I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.” “That is it sir…Exactly! The link between man and God is faith. This is all that keeps things alive and moving."

"If a Christian or a person in a Christian culture announces that he has discovered that he is God, we put him in the loony bin because it is unfashionable to burn people for heresy anymore. However, in India if you announce that you are the Lord God, they say, ‘Well, of course! How nice that you found out,’ because everybody is. Why then does a great problem arise? Why does it appear that we are not? Why do we think? Why do we have the sensory impression that this whole universe consists of a vast multiplicity of different things, and we do not see it all as one?"

not every leo is bombastic and dramatically theatrical, though every leo radiates an aura of dignity, an ornament of royalty, a steady, regal glow. if there is no heart, leos will struggle through the motions - they are mostly unable to generate enthusiasm for tasks that fail to inflame their feelings

modern astrology associates scorpio with the scorpion, but the ancients portrayed scorpio as the transcendent eagle who ascends above the material plane (taurus). from the ashes of their own destruction they light a fire that sets their wings alight

because leos are born with sunshine in their veins, their natural reflex is to inspire, nourish and illuminate company. they like to impress with ornate furnishings and typically love red and velvet. leos have an incredible memory for faces and rarely forget a social encounter or conversation

Star Spotting

♈ Aries: Superficial intensity. Youthful projection. May seem controlled but are easily moved. Impatient. Arians are idealistic and positive, and they believe they can do just about anything.
♉ Taurus: You hear their voice before you see them. Graceful movements. Full lips and cheeks - body parts that are supposed to be soft are normally very full and soft
♊ Gemini: You hear their laughter. Endless wordplay. Always appear younger then age, youthful radiance. Nervousness. Teaching you something. Distractable and communicative
♋ Cancer: The voice of a nurturer. Large eyes. The eyes tend to be watery and full of emotion even if the Cancer tries to hide it. May show hints of sadness.
♌ Leo: Warmth, generosity, drama. Even if extroversion is not always present right below the surface you will sense a steady inner glow of spirit.
♍ Virgo: Immaculately well dressed and presented. Alertness, humility and exact precision.the evolved Virgo-types often are great "personalities", but theirs is a very aware, calculated sort of individuality.
♎ Libra: Even if the body is thin, the revealing dimples and curved features define a Libran. Kindness, easy to get along with from first meeting them, They can be very talkative but also quite reservedly graceful, and seldom harsh.
♏ Scorpio: Their eyes - intensity, density, power and magnetism. They will seem to go on for miles. Scorpionic appearance that hints of forbidden and desirable things.
♐ Sagittarius: A warm glow. Laughter. An enthusiastic personality bursting to share wisdom and information. Maybe bohemian and untidy but always attractive in a frank, youthful and optimistic manner
♑ Capricorn: A pure heart underneath a reserved nature. Meticulously presented. Direct. Capricorns are surrounded by an air of effectivity and competence. An invisible crown, a natural regal expression
♒ Aquarius: Very hard to pin down. Eccentricity. Presents tangible yet highly creative ideas. They have a somewhat cool, flowy buzzing vibration, but at a low frequency. Very beautiful eyes and clear skin.
♓ Pisces: Mystery, elusiveness, sensitivity, sympathy. Can adapt into any form necessary. Deep, nurturing voices. Eyes that glow for miles inside. Warmth. Understanding. In spite of being quite shy, Pisceans tend to stare a lot.

In a sense the ascending sign is like the first impression we give. astrologers have noted that the ascending sign is the “mask” we wear but that has a negative undertone, as if this is something purposely done. it is more how the world perceives you, and your reflex responses to your environment

astrolocherry:

All the Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, are sleepy in some respect, exhausted, fluid overloaded and breathing underwater. This is saturation, drenching in celestial liquid, the nourishment of god and the sea of collective soul seasons. And really they are romantic in the sense they need an anchor to steady their rocking dreamboat to sleep. The rising and falling of a chest beside them is a Water sign lullaby, and they turn their torrential emotions into ravishing artwork, poetry and melody. Water individuals have a leaky etheric body, and unconsciously soak up any frequency in circulation. They frequently withdraw into solitude and sleep for days in sheer exhaustion. The rush, flux, noise and suffering of the world creeps under their skin and floods their bodies with an inexplicable heaviness.

gemini’s reputation for ‘moodiness’ can be broken down when we understand their core temperament. gemini doesn’t experience swinging emotional states (water signs) but more swinging personality states. each ‘personality’ has a unique mood and temperament. some are a bundle of nerves, and some are light and breezy

"Six core energies are symbolized by the Zodiac. However, because the human mind (ruled by Gemini) has a tendency to “polarize” (divide and separate into opposites), we experience these energies as 12 separate Zodiac signs, and thus we have the polarities. In the future, when human consciousness is evolved, it is said that the 12 signs will merge into six, and we will experience them as one energy pole – for example, Gemini-Sagittarius.*"
