Quote:                                                                            
"Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument. To perform this difficult office it is sometimes necessary for him to sacrifice happiness and everything that makes life worth living for the ordinary human being." ~Carl Jung

Blood moon rising...see what I did there :p total lunar eclipse @ 2:00 PDT
http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2015-april-4

"Apocalyptic" (as referred to by "Blood Moon 'Theorists'", Mark Blitz & John Hagee) has such a dramatically linear & finite tone to it. Perhaps this these spectacular & rare events would be better suited to symbolize » light hidden beneath the darkness of "absolutes".

http://mobile.wnd.com/2015/04/mystic-rabbi-issues-ominous-warning-on-eve-of-blood-moon/

Enjoy the event!
...question everything.

"Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true."
~ Buddha [paraphrased]
