Art That Will Mess With Your Head and moons that will mess with your head

There will be a string of four "blood moons" in the year 5775, and one of them will shine over the Passover seder. Whenever this happened in the past, enormous events took place in Jewish history.
There will be a string of four "blood moons" in the year 5775, and one of them will shine over the Passover seder. Whenever this happened in the past, enormous events took place in Jewish history.

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come." The verse about the sun turning dark and the moon turning to blood, is at the center of a new, hot, Christian bestseller titled "Four Blood Moons," by Pastor John Hagee. It is based on a discovery by Pastor Mark Biltz, who runs a "Hebrew roots" ministry in Tacoma, Washington: Red Moons. Biltz's website declares: "We do not want to convert Jews to Christianity or Christians to Judaism," which works for me. He based his observation on the verse in Genesis 1:14: "And God said, Let there be lights in the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years." God originally plans to use the heavenly lights as signs, and the prophet Joel foretells that a blood moon would mark the day of the Lord – then it stands to reason that some dramatic stuff should be taking place when a blood moon is up in the sky. The science of the "blood moon" phenomenon is fairly simple. It is created by a partial lunar eclipse. When the Earth's shadow covers the moon completely, we get a total eclipse. A partial lunar eclipse happens wen the Earth's shadow covers the moon only partially. The earth atmosphere bends light around its edge, and scatters out shorter-wavelength light (green through violet), leaving longer-wavelength light (red, orange, and yellow) in the Earth's shadow. This is also why sunsets and sunrises generally appear red. As is the case with most miraculous events that can be explained scientifically, the miracle is not in the natural phenomenon, but rather in its timing. So the Book of Joel describes solar eclipse, followed by a partial lunar eclipse, as precursors of the Day of the Lord. The prophecy in Joel, like most prophecies, is surreal, beautiful, and open to many interpretations. But we can take away from it the notion of a blood moon as a sign, and check out the calendar for the next bunch of partial lunar eclipses. That's what Pastor Biltz did, he looked at NASA's tables for solar and lunar eclipses and found a string of lunar and solar eclipses happening in 2014 and 2015 and then nothing like it for the rest of the 21st century. In 2015 there will be two solar and lunar eclipses two weeks apart (on the new moon and full moon) one in the spring and one in the fall. This could possibly produce four blood moon eclipses in a row, which is definitely something to write home about. OK, now hold on to your seats, please: we've had the Tetrad phenomenon (a string of four moons partially or completely eclipsed,) twice in the last century, both times on the night of the Passover seder: in 5710 (1949-50) and in 5728 (1967-68). The year 5710 came right after the establishment of the State of Israel. The year 5728 came right after the liberation of Jerusalem. The next string of four blood moons is coming Passover seder night, 5775 (2014-15) – a year from this Pesach. Oh, and the last time this event had taken place before the 20th century was in 5654. That's 1493-94 to you and me, one year after the exile from Spain. Now the much better connected Pastor Hagee has picked up Biltz's notions and authored a very popular book about the blood moons and what they mean – of course, the second coming of you know who. No, Virginia, we don't believe in this stuff, we really don't follow anything up in the heavens except our Father in Heaven, but you have to admit, this is pretty curious. It's also interesting to note that those moon strings each appeared only after the miraculous events, like a kind of confirmation on the part of God: I did this. Which means the coming year or so should be very eventful.

Don't Let The Past Weigh You Down

Every person has moments of suffering and unpleasantness in life. If you master the skill of living in the present, you will keep these moments limited to the actual negative experiences. Both before and after a painful experience, you will focus on what actually is at that moment, freeing you from much unnecessary pain in your life.
Very young children have this skill naturally (we all have it when we were younger), and that is why they enjoy life, unless they are presently in pain.
As we grow older, our ability to use our minds and think about the past and future increases. This ability can be utilized in very beneficial ways, but it can also be used in a detrimental way. We can transform our lives into suffering and torture by keeping in mind all our unpleasant experiences of the past.
Forgetting those experiences is the positive aspect of forgetfulness.
