The Seven Churches of the Revelation - As the Seven Spiritual Centers in the Body

Bible

The following is written as an interpretative rendering of the first chapters of the Revelation. It is based on a belief that the disciple John was not only seeing a message for the whole of humanity, but a message for each individual human. Each character, place, or action in the Revelation is considered to be an emblem of a part of each soul's personal spirit, mind, and body. The "Spirit's" descriptions, criticisms, instructions, and activities are considered to be insights into the functioning, health, and destiny of each of these aspects of our being. Under each title is the spiritual center's number, endocrine gland, and chakra correlate.

THE CHURCH OF EPHESUS

First Center ­ Gonads (ovaries & testes) ­ Root Chakra

The portion of our spiritual selves represented by the Spirit that holds the seven stars and walks among the seven golden lampstands says that this first center's virtue is that it has toiled and persevered and cannot stand evil or false spirituality. Nevertheless, its weakness is that it has left its first love and must therefore remember from where it has fallen, repent, and do the first deeds.

Despite all appearances to the contrary, we are celestial, spiritual beings first. We descended from heaven into matter and into this world. These outer influences have taken hold on us. They possess us. We feel completely terrestrial and physical subjects of this world. This chakra reflects that loss. It must reverse its focus on worldly realities to include spiritual realities, remembering that it originally loved the spiritual things and God, who is a spirit.

In many of the ancient texts, reversing the flow of energy in the body is a major technique for spiritualizing the body. Included in the diagram section of this booklet is a Taoist diagram of a breathing technique in which the mind visualizes energy rising up the back of the body with every inhalation of the breath, uniting with the Great Spirit's breath, and then descending down the front of the body with every exhalation, bathing the body in raised, spiritualized energy. The sexual glands or chakras have the life force of the body "coiled" within them. This needs to be awakened and drawn upward through the body. It needs to be united with our spiritual ideal or our image, concept, or consciousness of God and our godly nature. Then, with this first love restored, the body is bathed in the resurrected spirit and vibration. The body gradually becomes enlivened and spiritualized.

In its final comment to this center, the Spirit promises that if this center spiritualizes itself, then it will be allowed to eat from the Tree of Life again in the Paradise of God. In other words, it will regain its immortality and its companionship with God in Paradise, which was first lost in the Garden in Genesis.

The old teaching that this life is lived to prepare for the next life holds true despite all of the physical world's attempts to confuse, distract, and repudiate it. Physical is important. Our soul has incarnated for a purpose. That purpose is to resolve karma, embrace grace, and resurrect our true self and its companionship with our Creator. As Cayce's readings teach, the goal is to know yourself to be yourself (your true self) and yet one with the Whole (Cayce capitalized this word, indicating its connection with the Divine).


THE CHURCH OF SMYRNA

Second Center ­ Cells of Leydig ­ Naval Chakra

As the Spirit turns its attention to the church of Smyrna, it identifies itself as being the first self and the last self, which was dead and is now alive again. It acknowledges that this center, the navel or lower abdomen chakra, has suffered much tribulation, poverty, and slander from those who say they are true spiritual seekers but are of "the synagogue of Satan."

Cayce identifies the second spiritual center and its connection to the sixth center as the "seat of the soul." The soul's companion is the subconscious mind, according to Cayce. These two abide in the autonomic nervous system of the body and directly affect the endocrine glands and their hormones. Their primary points of contact are the second and sixth chakras. The spirit is aware of the soul's and subconscious mind's poverty and tribulation in a purely physical world and a physically-dominated body, with little or no spiritual nourishment. When we are predominantly in our outer egos and conscious minds, our soul and deeper mind suffer and starve. Despite this, the Spirit says that the soul is rich and it should not fear its trials and imprisonment in the body because at the death of the body the Spirit will give it "the crown of life."

Bitcoin: What Is It, and Is It Right for Your Business?

Bitcoins to Bank Account


OK, so what's Bitcoin?

It's not an actual coin, it's "cryptocurrency," a digital form of payment that is produced ("mined") by lots of people worldwide. It allows peer-to-peer transactions instantly, worldwide, for free or at very low cost.

Bitcoin was invented after decades of research into cryptography by software developer, Satoshi Nakamoto (believed to be a pseudonym), who designed the algorithm and introduced it in 2009. His true identity remains a mystery.

This currency is not backed by a tangible commodity (such as gold or silver); bitcoins are traded online which makes them a commodity in themselves.

Bitcoin is an open-source product, accessible by anyone who is a user. All you need is an email address, Internet access, and money to get started.

Where does it come from?

Bitcoin is mined on a distributed computer network of users running specialized software; the network solves certain mathematical proofs, and searches for a particular data sequence ("block") that produces a particular pattern when the BTC algorithm is applied to it. A match produces a bitcoin. It's complex and time- and energy-consuming.

Only 21 million bitcoins are ever to be mined (about 11 million are currently in circulation). The math problems the network computers solve get progressively more difficult to keep the mining operations and supply in check.

This network also validates all the transactions through cryptography.

How does Bitcoin work?

Internet users transfer digital assets (bits) to each other on a network. There is no online bank; rather, Bitcoin has been described as an Internet-wide distributed ledger. Users buy Bitcoin with cash or by selling a product or service for Bitcoin. Bitcoin wallets store and use this digital currency. Users may sell out of this virtual ledger by trading their Bitcoin to someone else who wants in. Anyone can do this, anywhere in the world.

There are smartphone apps for conducting mobile Bitcoin transactions and Bitcoin exchanges are populating the Internet.

How is Bitcoin valued?

Bitcoin is not held or controlled by a financial institution; it is completely decentralized. Unlike real-world money it cannot be devalued by governments or banks.

Instead, Bitcoin's value lies simply in its acceptance between users as a form of payment and because its supply is finite. Its global currency values fluctuate according to supply and demand and market speculation; as more people create wallets and hold and spend bitcoins, and more businesses accept it, Bitcoin's value will rise. Banks are now trying to value Bitcoin and some investment websites predict the price of a bitcoin will be several thousand dollars in 2014.

What are its benefits?

There are benefits to consumers and merchants that want to use this payment option.

1. Fast transactions - Bitcoin is transferred instantly over the Internet.

2. No fees/low fees -- Unlike credit cards, Bitcoin can be used for free or very low fees. Without the centralized institution as middle man, there are no authorizations (and fees) required. This improves profit margins sales.

3. Eliminates fraud risk -Only the Bitcoin owner can send payment to the intended recipient, who is the only one who can receive it. The network knows the transfer has occurred and transactions are validated; they cannot be challenged or taken back. This is big for online merchants who are often subject to credit card processors' assessments of whether or not a transaction is fraudulent, or businesses that pay the high price of credit card chargebacks.

4. Data is secure -- As we have seen with recent hacks on national retailers' payment processing systems, the Internet is not always a secure place for private data. With Bitcoin, users do not give up private information.

a. They have two keys - a public key that serves as the bitcoin address and a private key with personal data.

b. Transactions are "signed" digitally by combining the public and private keys; a mathematical function is applied and a certificate is generated proving the user initiated the transaction. Digital signatures are unique to each transaction and cannot be re-used.

c. The merchant/recipient never sees your secret information (name, number, physical address) so it's somewhat anonymous but it is traceable (to the bitcoin address on the public key).

5. Convenient payment system -- Merchants can use Bitcoin entirely as a payment system; they do not have to hold any Bitcoin currency since Bitcoin can be converted to dollars. Consumers or merchants can trade in and out of Bitcoin and other currencies at any time.

Security Camera Installation - Are You Being Safe?

security cameras installation los angeles

One of the biggest fears of any company or business is the nuisance lawsuit. Someone who hopes to collect from the insurance company of the company or business files the nuisance lawsuit. The people filing nuisance lawsuits feel that the company or business won't have any loss since they have insurance. This statement is wrong since it takes time to defend against a nuisance lawsuit. The best defense against a nuisance lawsuit is a comprehensive security camera installation at the place of business.

If a plaintiff states that they fell in a place of business and injured themselves, it is often difficult to prove them wrong if there are no witnesses. Without a witness to state that the plaintiff did not fall, defense against the nuisance lawsuit is difficult if not impossible. The only recourse is for the insurance company to pay the lawsuit or make a settlement payment. A security camera installation in the business can cover the whole business area and provide a recording for the insurance company.

In a factory setting, an employee may be injured on the job. The injury could be the result of neglecting to follow established safety instructions. There is the possibility that no co workers saw the injury happen and can not assist in the defense against the frivolous lawsuit. Through the use of a security camera installation, the company can utilize the footage obtained from a camera observing that area and defend against the lawsuit.

Insurance companies will often settle frivolous lawsuits out of court. They will provide a monetary settlement to the party that claims to be injured if there is no proof that the injury did not happen where they claimed it did. The cost of settling the lawsuit out of court will be apportioned to all of the businesses that utilize that insurance company in the coming years. This cost will be realized in higher premiums for insurance. A camera installation will often cost less than the aggregate sum of the increased insurance premiums.

Hiring a Contractor - Know How One Can Help

RedondoBeach

Before you decide whether to start a major home improvement project on your own, you should consider the tasks that a contractor typically performs. This professional can help from the planning stages to the building phase.

If you are starting a home improvement project, you might be wondering if you could use the help of a contractor. After all, it is nice to have someone on your side that knows what they are doing regarding construction. Before you decide whether to hire one to assist you, consider some of the reasons that many people believe this kind of professional can help during home improvement projects.

One way that contractors tend to assist homeowners is by planning the project. You might have a vision of how you want your kitchen or bathroom remodel to look, but it might not work in the real world. A contractor can let you know whether there is an issue with what you envision. You might be considering chopping down a wall that is greatly needed in your home, or designing a floor plan that is not as great for everyday living as you think. This kind of professional can stop you from making a costly mistake with your house, which is why it is worth spending a little money at the beginning.

You should also know that many projects need to be in line with city codes before being built. If you simply go ahead and construct something that does not adhere to the codes, you may be charged a fine and expected to change it as soon as possible. Hiring a contractor can help you get to know the codes that apply to your project so that you do not have to pay a fine and start all over.

Of course, a contractor is perfect for performing the actual construction, or overseeing a large project that involves a large crew. You may have plenty of ideas regarding how you want your home to look, but you probably do not know how to properly put them into action. Most homeowners need help building and remodeling, whether the task is large or small, and a good professional can help.

Clearly, there are several ways that contractors are known to assist homeowners. You might be tempted to save money upfront by doing it all yourself, but you run the risk of making various costly mistakes. Even if you are good at construction, you do not know all the building codes like most contractors do. Trusting your project to an experienced professional should give you peace of mind and save you money in the long run, finally allowing you to get the results you want.
