Encoded within your body, teaches Caroline Myss, is an energy system linking you directly to the world's great spiritual traditions. Through it, you have direct access to the divine energy that seamlessly connects all life. On Anatomy of the Spirit, Myss offers a stunning picture of the human body's hidden energetic structures, while revealing its precise spiritual code and relationship to the sacred energy of creation.
In her most personal book to date, beloved teacher and best-selling author Caroline Myss draws on her own practice to help us regain our fluency in the language of prayer and renew our connection to the sacred. Intimate Conversations with the Divine offers 100 of Myss' personal prayers as a resource and inspiration to start a prayer practice of your own. Each prayer illustrates a different type of grace that feeds the human soul, from awakening, endurance, and healing, to silence, surrender, and trust.
To connect with the ultimate creative power that shapes and directs our lives, teaches Caroline Myss, we first need to learn its sacred medium of communication - what she calls "holy language". Whether through prayer, ritual, or inspired texts, holy language is our conduit to grace and the mystical domain. In these original audio sessions, Myss brings us a new chapter in her life's work: how holy language awakens the full emergence of who we truly are and empowers us to transform ourselves, individually and collectively, in the material, energetic, and spiritual dimensions.
Why are we here? According to Caroline Myss, there is no question more important in our lives than this one. Now you have a "compass" to help you find your sacred purpose on earth, with this revolutionary spiritual tool developed by best selling author Myss.
Myss believes that our personal mission is part of a greater 'sacred contract' that we agree to enter into before we are born. Based on her internationally acclaimed workshop of the same name, SACRED CONTRACTS will help you to uncover your sacred contract to develop better physical and emotional health, and a clear sense of purpose.
Today, John Edwards called for repairing the sacred contract with our veterans and military community. In recognition of their bravery and sacrifice, Edwards believes we must guarantee quality health care for service men and women and every generation of veterans, provide families with the support necessary to withstand the strain of separations, and ensure returning troops have access to the education and opportunities to succeed in civilian life. Central to the sacred contract is a solemn pledge to every man and woman who risks their life for our country that we will take care of them as they take care of us.
The final cornerstone of the sacred contract with our military and veterans community is ensuring that returning troops have access to the educational and economic opportunities to succeed in civilian life. Our armed forces and the way they are used have changed, and our policies must adapt. The original GI Bill put 13 million returning American service members through college after World War II and helped build the middle class. Today, our armed forces are smaller, but the need for higher education to succeed in civilian life is even greater. College graduates can expect to earn $1 million more over their lifetimes than high school graduates, and their children are almost twice as likely to attend college themselves.

Yet the argument that benefit cuts would break a near-sacred contract is no longer valid now that full benefits are no longer prepaid. Benefit cuts are built into current law and, in effect, written into the contract with workers.
In the meeting, Secretary Jewell and Minister Taubira discussed their shared commitment to helping tribes repatriate their sacred cultural objects that, under tribal customary law, are owned by the tribe as a whole and cannot be legally sold by individuals. The Secretary and Minister agreed to explore pathways that might provide greater protections for U.S. tribes seeking to repatriate their cultural property.
In the meetings, Secretary Jewell also emphasized the unique legal and political relationship between the federal government and federally recognized tribes in the United States. Federally recognized tribes have their own governments within the U.S. political system, with the power to make contracts, own property, regulate their territory, to sue and be sued in court, and to appear in proceedings of administrative bodies, the same as any other sovereign nation.
New York Assemblyman Clyde Vanel, however, wants state officials to consider going full force with blockchain for everything from shoring up voting technology to introducing smart contracts.
"We figured, if it's good enough to secure your high-value assets, like bitcoin, it's good enough for elections," Vanel tells StateTech. "We have to use the up-to-date technology to be able to protect this most sacred institution."
States and services still need to allow and embrace blockchain to unlock its potential. To enable this, the third bill seeks to amend legislation, allowing "signatures, records and contracts secured through blockchain technology to be considered in an electronic form and to be an electronic record and signature."
This would also make smart contracts possible, which rely on the bitcoin framework and cut out the need for a trust or legal framework to ensure all parties are adhering to the terms of the contract as well as prevent transaction fraud without the need for a third party, according to Bitcoin Magazine. This could usher in a sea change in how states approach IT procurement contracts. 041b061a72
