When the object of your desires is a Cancer, flattery and frills won’t do the trick; in fact, these promise only to turn her off. Cancer women seek nothing less than true sincerity in love. A secure, dependable connection with a trustworthy partner is a requirement for this deeply emotional, sensitive and intuitive woman, so dishonest or unfaithful types need not apply.
The Cancer woman does want to be swept off her feet, but doing so can be tricky; one false move and you could send the sign of the Crab back into her self-protective shell. But show her that you’re family-oriented, a hard worker, and someone who will strive to provide for her physical and emotional needs, and she will open her heart to you, slowly but surely.
Great dates with the Crab include a picnic, a wedding or family reunion, or a tearjerker film that will tug at her heartstrings.
“I’m dead” she said.
“Dead?” asked her honey?
“What do you mean?”
“I am slain at last
in the icy grip of
your death hand glare,
and solo icicle silences!”
She fairly dripped martyr blood
from every precisely chosen word
weighted just so and
freighted with layers…
“Ah” her honey replied, nodding.
They peddled on in silence
each one a universe of laughter
inside the heart they share.
There is a man I know of…very intelligent. Studies lots of things, but most particularly studies things that can be used as tools to dismantle the faulty thinking or lack of thinking by people who are professed christians but likely are unable to articulate their faith and what it really means to them.
From the heights to the depths and the breadth of what he can conceive of in his mind, he sits, comfortable and relaxed, a man’splainin’ fool. He can fight off any attack…he can account for anything encountered…
…inside the sphere he grants and allows.
But there is an outside. And of this place no mind can conceive, and of the Being that inhabits this place that is no place, well…it is gonna be such a shock when we are given eyes to see, and faces to be seen…
It’s a good thing They are benevolent!
I am mindful of The Last Battle and the dwarves inside that dark shed who do not and cannot know of “an outside”.
Hey…I have glimmers only, but really I have NO IDEA what that outside is because the glimmers I have are by definition intelligible to me and thus derivative of my own interior experience.
But it’s there…and the stick fighting approach to encountering Them on That Day will be comically irrelevant.
“To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.”
The Pharisee has understood this corollary:
“To appear perfect, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.”
The Pharisee thinks holiness is a matter of doing…do these certain things…avoid doing these other things, and you will be holy.
But holiness is not something you do. It is something you are, something imputed to you as a gift that you become…and once you have become that, you are that regardless of doing…just like your child is always your child whether they do certain things or don’t do certain things.
If you find yourself assessing your standing with God on the basis of what you have done, or refrained from doing?
Then you are living out the Pharisee’s corollary.
