nearly all the nurses i work night shift with are scorpios
it doesnt surprise me. it is scorpio to work in the dark and prefer to keep themselves out of the politics and workplace socialising. no one sees their face in the light of day. and they can day nap. enjoy the elements of the night.
the other one is a gemini. shes not a ‘night’ person but geminis are so hyperactive and so full of energy working overnight without sleep isnt a problem
capricorn is cronos chronos keeps track. …chronos is the world’s time clocks, deadlines, watches, calendars, agendas, planners, schedules cancer is kairos kairos is intimacy with the Real. kairos is time at her best. …Spirit’s time. we exist in chronos. we long for kairos #sister signs
“"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.”—(via astrolocherry)
“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?”—Alan Watts (via astrolocherry)
“to be honest i miss you so fucking much. no goodbye could ever be long enough but ours felt especially rushed and short and i shouldve kissed you one more time and held on to you for a second longer but i didnt and now my minds gone numb because i think about it too much and its hurting. It shouldnt be this difficult but being without you fucks me up and im sorry”—i need you (via quelle—fucking—surprise)
It literally hurts me so bad to know I’ve lost you forever. Even with everything you put me through, I believed so strongly in the promises you made for me that I was willing to let go of any judgements I had. I wanted our future so badly and those dreams didnt even hold an ounce of potential for reality. They were obliviant dreams that I got lost in because we all want what is completely out of our reach. I never want to feel this out of touch again. I never want to believe in empty words again. I never want to feel this betrayed again. Please please please universe let me never be this sad over emptiness again.
