I don’t think that anything happens by coincidence. No one is here by accident. Everyone who crosses our path has a message for us. Otherwise they would have taken another path, or left earlier or later. The fact that these people are here means that they are here for some reason.
—  James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy

Disturb not the harmony of fire, ice or lightning, lest these titans wreak destruction upon the world in which they clash. Though the water’s great guardian shall arise to quell the fighting, alone its song will fail, and thus the earth shall turn to ash. O Chosen One, into thine hands bring together all three. Their treasures combined tame the Beast of the Sea.

Astrologers were greatly impressed, and misled, by what they believed to be confirming evidence–so much so that they were quite unimpressed by any unfavorable evidence. Moreover, by making their interpretations and prophecies sufficiently vague they were able to explain away anything that might have been a refutation of the theory had the theory and the prophecies been more precise. In order to escape falsification they destroyed the testability of their theory. It is a typical soothsayer’s trick to predict things so vaguely that the predictions can hardly fail: that they become irrefutable.

You fear me? So you should. All you who are vile. Would you like to know how you will die? The sacred time is near. Beware the blackness of day. Beware the man who brings the jaguar. Behold him reborn from mud and earth. For the one he takes you to will cancel the sky, and scratch out the earth. Scratch you out. And end your world. He’s with us now. Day will be like night. And the man jaguar will lead you to your end.

What I really enjoyed about The Lego Movie, and it’s not just the action and comedy, it was the main message. It is so powerful, and I thought it would be nice to share it here.

So to everyone who has stopped by my tumblr, to offer encouragement, friendship, and even mentorship, thank you. You are the Special, you are capable of amazing things, so don’t give up. :) 


“I want you to get mad!

five shall go west to the goddess in chains
one shall be lost in the land without rain
the bane of olympus show the trail
campers and hunters combined prevail
the titan’s curse must one withstand
and one shall perish by a parent’s hand
