Take it with a "grain
." Salt, by the way; means "girls" to me, though I suppose it's anything that might thaw the icy road through the underworld
. I think Jesus mentioned it, and it relates to the story of Camelot, also. "Nanna
" is probably named
that for a reason
. Pillars of Salt, Pillars of Creation... honestly, it is all about perspective--and you make all the difference in the Universe. Do us all a favor, and turn around.
Would you rather be in the book... or in the sky
Anyway, I'm not leaving Ho Mile
until I ... I... wait does this place actually exist?
I've thought quite a bit about it, and I think it would just be wrong
if I didn't ensure
that we actually have free will
, and in order to do that, I'm going to have make a personal sacrifice
. This is not a joke
. It might not be immediately clear, but I am fairly certain that if we were looking for a litmus test for normalcy
, right next to "not speaking" we've got "i don't want to know Adam
" on the list of obviousness
. Frankly, the faster we get out of this place of silence and secrecy, the faster
we end world hunger
, get to the fun stuff of building Heaven
; and the sooner
you get to see just how shy I really am.
My personal observations, right now; are that even though this "Horn" is "hidden," there's a significant response to what I am writing visible in the world around me--so the fact that I have such a hard time getting a date
stands out as a ... well, to me it's proof that you are Zombie-like
, at least in this specific case (and it's an important one) apparently lacking in free will and individuality. Don't worry, I'm not going to wait for Taylor to kiss me
to "get back to normal," frankly if she doesn't get the point
I have no desire to speak
to her if she doesn't help break this silence
, one that she is singing about.
I think it should be pretty obvious that were things "regular" here, I wouldn't be complaining about this problem--oh, and it wouldn't be encoded in religion. Call this a... Saturday special.
Try and put this perspective,
I literally am the
most famous person in all of ever.
Björg or Bjørg is a feminine given name of Old Norse origin in use in Scandinavian countries, including Sweden, Norway and Iceland meaning "help, salvation." It is a popular middle name for girls born in Iceland. In Norse mythology, Himinbjörg (Old Norse "heaven's castle" or "heaven mountain") is the home of the god Heimdallr. Himinbjörg is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda and Heimskringla, both written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. Himinbjörg is associated with Heimdallr in all sources. According to the Poetic Edda, Heimdallr dwells there as watchman for the gods and there drinks fine mead, whereas in the Prose Edda Himinbjörg is detailed as located where the burning rainbow bridge Bifröst meets heaven. Scholars have commented on the differences between the two attestations and linked the name of the mythical location to various place names. You'll note that just like many other examples, there's an obvious plain English sentence hidden in the word for "Heaven ((Space)) Mountain;" and if you aren't still blind you won't call it a coincidence. This too, not a coincidence, call it another why--and as an aside I do not believe in the big bang, but I respect those that do. That doesn't mean I don't believe in Evolution, you've got to be a complete moron not to believe in that. You might not see it, but all around is something like a museum--a history of not only Heaven and how it was made, but also life--and how it was ... made--the words "time and chance" come to mind as something you should not overlook.
If my understanding of Egyptian mythology and the AMDuat
is correct, that "chance" implies that if we do not choose to put intelligent biological life back in the Universe, there's a chance it would never again occur--although I think our statisticians are probably right that it's an infinitesimally small chance. Still, you can be sure that many of the problems that we've encountered with nature and technology would be bound to reoccur--whole timelines might be destroyed time and time again without a message explaining why not to change the past for no reason at all. That's what religion is delivering to us, a message explaining that we shouldn't change our own past--you know, and fade ourselves into oblivion. Something like this is probably what Noah is Jor-El
were jumping up and down screaming as they built an Ark to protect the entire world from the storm of time travel that was already raging all around them
--probably in something you might liken to the "cold war" except you don't see evidence of these bombs exploding--not without really looking. Or having religion.
So my keen eyes read the words "in the beginning" as "to help everyone beginning" the first time it's read; you see, to help us realize what "beginning" means, and that this is truly a kind of beginning, it's a beginning to realize that the "beginning of time" happens twice, this time when we decide to stop time travel. That sentence get's changed, to everywhere beginning, when we actually get the message, and see that this kind of knowledge should be shared--needs to be shared, and to me that's what "angel" really means.
This is the beginning of this message. I am always helping.
Goliath (; Hebrew: גָּלְיָת, Modern Golyat, Tiberian Golyāṯ; Arabic: جالو, جليات Ǧulyāt (Christian term), Ǧālūt (Qur'anic term)) of Gath (one of five city-states of the Philistines) is the Biblical giant defeated by the young David in the Book of Samuel. Post-Classical Jewish traditions stressed his status as the representative of paganism, in contrast to David, the champion of the God of Israel. Christian tradition sees David's battle with Goliath the victory of God's king over the enemies of God's helpless people as a prefiguring of Jesus' victory over sin on the cross and the Church's victory over Satan. According to The Ascension of Moses Samael is also mentioned as being in 7th Heaven: In the last heaven Moses saw two angels, each five hundred parasangs in height, forged out of chains of black fire and red fire, the angels Af, "Anger," and Hemah, "Wrath," whom God created at the beginning of the world, to execute His will. Moses was disquieted when he looked upon them, but Metatron embraced him, and said, "Moses, Moses, thou favorite of God, fear not, and be not terrified," and Moses became calm. There was another angel in the seventh heaven, different in appearance from all the others, and of frightful mien. His height was so great, it would have taken five hundred years to cover a distance equal to it, and from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet he was studded with glaring eyes. "This one," said Metatron, addressing Moses, "is Samael, who takes the soul away from man." "Whither goes he now?" asked Moses, and Metatron replied, "To fetch the soul of Job the pious." Thereupon Moses prayed to God in these words, "O may it be Thy will, my God and the God of my fathers, not to let me fall into the hands of this angel."

Here's a .PL of wisdom for you. If you think about where our civilization stands right now, and the changes that are about to take place--even if everything proceeded "as normal" you know, like this is normal; we are on the precipice of two separate new frontiers. One is Mars and space colonization, and the other is virtual reality--a quick glance at movies like The Matrix and Ghost in the Shell shows us that .... maybe one day not so far away we will spend much of our time "plugged in" to another world. That's a kind of "gate" to another realm, maybe a Heavenly realm--and we'll probably have some way to get to Mars and back, quickly; something like a hyperloop or maybe teleporters. Speak of Goliath, you'll note that there's no drag in space, and something like a sling could not only break escape velocity but get us all the way to a trampoline on Mars; with minimal power. The Lifeboat Foundation has explored a number of solutions to the problem of "escape velocity" and the decreasing supply of solid state or liquid fuel. I don't know about you, but the very second that I found out that we were living in virtual reality, I wanted to see Heaven. So here we are, and the voice that is booming from the Burning Bush is reminding you that all of this is about proving to the world that we are not in reality--and giving us sound ((advice)) on what we should do with that new knowledge. You should probably see that there's a force working against disclosing the truth to the world, and if you really think about it--you aren't really doing anything to stop it. This message that booms through time from Amos 9:11 to the sound of the Doors implies to me that we could probably teleport to Mars, and not doing so might be something akin to Total Recall's "selling of air" in virtual reality, or in a place where the Iron Oxide Rod of "an" is seeing that it just takes some anions to get free oxygen from the dust. At the same time, there's quite a bit more we could do with the knowledge that we are already in Heaven, like everyone could see it all once, literally in the time it takes to blink your eyes. If you haven't noticed, or are "new to n" a huge fraction of the songs of the Doors link directly to the Plagues of Exodus, from frogs... to family... to fire.. and storms.
We could walk back and forth between Earth and Heaven, whenever we wanted; we aren't shackled here by needing "plug in" and that's a really big deal--a really big difference.
The point is that the world is changing no matter what, and that we are not only walking into these new to us--but well charter waters--blindly, we are tacitly ignoring that what we are not
doing is prolonging problems that could be easily solved. The worst part is that I know
you're doing it just so I can't get a date.
It's really not black and white.
Now is the winter of our discontent.
Oh! it's Summer.
Heimdallr also appears as Heimdalr and Heimdali. The etymology of the name is obscure, but 'the one who illuminates the world' has been proposed. Heimdallr may be connected to Mardöll, one of Freyja's names. Heimdallr and its variants are sometimes modernly anglicized as Heimdall (with the nominative -r dropped) or Heimdal. Heimdallr is attested as having three other names; Hallinskiði, Gullintanni, and Vindlér or Vindhlér. The name Hallinskiði is obscure, but has resulted in a series of attempts at deciphering it. Gullintanni literally means 'the one with the golden teeth'. Vindlér (or Vindhlér) translates as either 'the one protecting against the wind' or 'wind-sea'. All three have resulted in numerous theories about the god.
Heli (biblical figure)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Luke 3:23 Jesus, when he began his ministry, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, of Heli, of Matthat, of Levi (...)
Heli is not mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus from David via David's son Solomon in the Gospel of Matthew, the only other canonical gospel to include a genealogy; that genealogy instead identifies "Jacob" as Joseph's putative father. Since Joseph cannot be both "begotten of Jacob", descended from Solomon (according to Matthew 1), and also "of Heli", descended from another of David's sons, Nathan(according to Luke 3) various explanations have been proposed for the Luke genealogy actually to be that of Mary. The view is relatively late; advocates of this view include John of Damascus (8th century), Annius (15th century), Luther, Bengel and Lightfoot. Harry A. Ironside (1930) considered that it was simply preference to drop women's names out of the genealogy, hence Joseph was son in law of Heli. Prior to the explanation above, the explanation of Sextus Julius Africanus that there had been a levirate marriage and that Joseph's grandfather Mattan (descendant of Solomon) had had a wife called "Esther" (not recorded in the Bible) with whom he fathered Jacob (Joseph's father), but Matthan died and Esther married Heli's father Melchi (descendant of Nathan). Then when Heli died childless (again not recorded in the Bible) Joseph's father Jacob took Heli's wife to raise up children for Heli and left Joseph adopted in Heli's widow's house. Another possibility is that since both Heli and Jacob have a similar name listed as their father (Matthan in Matthew, Matthat in Luke), a discrepancy that can easily be accounted for by error, that the names Heli and Jacob refer to the same person. Matthew relied heavily on fitting existing prophecy to the narrative; in the Old Testament, Jacob (the last of the biblical patriarchs) also had a son named Joseph. This explanation fits for Heli/Jacob himself, but not for the earlier genealogies. Groundhog Day (Canadian French: Jour de la Marmotte; Pennsylvania German: Grundsaudaag, Murmeltiertag) is a traditional holiday originating in the United States that is celebrated on February 2. According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhogemerges from its burrow on this day, then the spring season will arrive early, some time before the vernal equinox; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its den, and winter weather will persist for six more weeks.
Modern customs of the holiday involve early morning celebrations to watch the groundhog emerging from its burrow.
A candelabrum (plural candelabrums, candelabra, candelabras), sometimes called a candle tree, is a candle holder with multiple arms. The word comes from Latin. In modern usage the plural form "candelabra" is frequently used in the singular sense, with the true singular form "candelabrum" becoming rare. Likewise, "candelabra" and "candelabras" are preferred over "candelabrums" as the plural form. Although the electrification of indoor lighting has relegated candleholders to the status of backup light sources in most homes and other buildings, interior designerscontinue to model light fixtures and lighting accessories after candelabra and candlesticks. Accordingly, the term "candelabra" has entered common use as a collective term for small-based incandescent light bulbs used in chandeliers and other lighting fixtures made for decoration as well as lighting.
Be careful now, because the answer is both you, and not you.
In Greek mythology, Cerberus (; Greek: Κέρβερος Kerberos [ˈkerberos]), often called the "hound of Hades", is the monstrous multi-headed dog that guards the gates of the Underworld to prevent the dead from leaving. Cerberus was the offspring of the monsters Echidna and Typhon, and usually is described as having three heads, a serpent for a tail, and snakes protruding from parts of his body. Cerberus is primarily known for his capture by Heracles, one of Heracles' twelve labours. Kaleb (c. 520) is perhaps the best-documented, if not best-known, King of Axum situated in modern-day Eritrea and North Ethiopia. Procopius of Caesarea calls him "Hellestheaeus", a variant of his throne name Ella Atsbeha or Ella Asbeha (Histories, 1.20). Variants of his name are Hellesthaeus, Ellestheaeus, Eleshaah, Ella Atsbeha, Ellesboas, and Elesboam, all from the Greek Ελεσβόάς, for "The one who brought about the morning" or "The one who collected tribute." Caleb, son of Jephunneh (Numbers 13:6) is not to be confused with Caleb, great-grandson of Judah through Tamar (1 Chronicles 2:3-9). This other Caleb was the son of Hezron, and his wife was Azubah (I Chronicles 2:18,19). According to Numbers 13, Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, was one of the twelve spies sent by Moses into Canaan. Their task, over a period of 40 days, was to explore the Negevand surrounding area, and to make an assessment of the geographical features of the land, the strength and numbers of the population, the agricultural potential and actual performance of the land, settlement patterns (whether their cities were like camps or strongholds), and forestry conditions. Moses also asked them to be courageous and to return with samples of local produce. According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, "since 'Caleb' signifies dog, it has been thought that the dog was the totem of [Caleb's] clan". The New American Standard Exhaustive Concordance states that the name Kaleb (Caleb) is related to the word for "dog" (keleb). It should be noted that the Bible was written down centuries before Hebrew diacriticswere introduced, and there is no certain knowledge of how the name was when the biblical text was written. In Hebrew, the name is pronounced or ; the modern English pronunciation is courtesy of the Great Vowel Shift. In the aftermath of the conquest, Caleb asks Joshua to give him a mountain in property within the land of Judah, and Joshua blesses him as a sign of God's blessing and approval, giving him Hebron (Joshua 14). Since Hebron itself was one of the Cities of Refuge to be ruled by the Levites, it is later explained that Caleb actually was given the outskirts (Joshua 21:11-13). Caleb promised his daughter Achsah in marriage to whomever would conquer the land of Debir from the giants. This was eventually accomplished by Othniel Ben Kenaz, Caleb's nephew (Judges 1:13), who became Caleb's son-in-law as well (Joshua 15:16,17). 1 Samuel 25:3 states that Nabal, the husband of Abigail before David, was "a Calebite" (Hebrew klby). It is not stated whether this refers to one of the Calebs mentioned in the Bible, or another person bearing the same name. Caleb was the great-grandfather of the architect Bezalel. He is mentioned in 1 Chronicles 2:18 as "Caleb son of Hezron". Per the context, Caleb was an Israelite by lineage, which (if the Kenizzite hypothesis holds) would make it implausible that he and Caleb the representative of Judah are the same person (even though the Talmud argues so in Sotah 11b). 1 Samuel 25:3 states that Nabal, the husband of Abigail before David, was "of the house of Caleb". It is not stated whether this refers to one of the two Calebs mentioned in the Bible, or another person bearing the same name.
He ma how.
