Jacob Böehme. Theosophische Werke. 1890.
Mystic vision from J. Böehme’s Theosophische Werke. It shows a sinful world of creation, surrounded by the Serpent of Eternity, the Uroboros, and characterized by the four elements and the sins corresponding to them; the whole circle relates to the centre, the weeping eye of God, i.e. the point where salvation, symbolized by the dove of the Holy Ghost, may be achieved through compassion and love.

"Uhh you have an interest in gore so obviously you can’t complain about animals being tortured" This anon is ridiculous.
humans are incredible creatures capable of amazing feats such as a lack of logic
lol are you kidding me?? i’m not even crying, it doesn’t affect me whatsoever irl aside from thinking how fxcking stupid humans are. i’m not going to lose sleep over it and in fact once i reblogged it with my personal commentary i haven’t even given it so much as a passing thought because aside from making it known that the dog is literally frightened beyond belief there’s nothing whatsoever i could do. so yeah while i don’t have empathy for animals or people thankfully it doesn’t mean i’m going to sit here and let you morons be willfully ignorant.
lol this dog is extremely stressed out and its pretty obvious to tell if you even so much as understood remotely about canine mannerisms im glad 4k people on tumblr think this is hilarious and cute
