Pullout couch

Image result for pull out couch

Having family and friends stay over at your home is fun, and that’s why many individuals make it a point to get couch beds (aka sleeper couches and pullout sofas ) and/or futons. These instant beds are really convenient, and you can put almost everywhere around the home.

Sofa beds and futons are especially great if you do not have a formal guest room. Maybe it is possible to repurpose another room. By way of instance, they can be set within an office, living room, or family room where it will mainly be a sofa, but if overnight guests arrive, you will have an immediate bed.

Sizes

Bearing this in mind, have a look at the space you have available, and choose the size required for your convertible sleeper. They are usually advertised as full-size or queen beds, but hardly any are twin size.

Linens

You will want to obtain the ideal size of bed linens to your sofa bed or futon.

When you are searching, notice that the mattress is significantly thinner than a normal mattress. You will need these to understand whether you should groom it using conventional full-size sheet sets, or if it requires special bedding. Because there’s a large and diverse market of sofa beds and futons, some will need normal linens while some need specially-ordered sheets.

Padding

Due to the thinness of sofa bed mattresses, your visitors may feel the framework underneath. This will provide the mattress more cushioning, mitigate the feeling of the framework beneath, and make it a much more comfortable experience for the guest.

Congratulations, and allow the guests arrive!

Is your dog depressed?

Dog, Brown, Sad, Pet

What if recently, you have been noticing your pet sleeps abnormally (more than normal ), eats less, seems sad, and spends all its time moping around the home. All these behaviors are completely opposite to their normal behavior. Undeniably, you might begin to worry! This problem is not dissimilar to that of people.

Now it is your turn to be there for her or him. How can you cheer up your very best friend? What are a few of the techniques you can use?

If your furry friend is depressed, here are 8 approaches to use to cheer up him/her:

  1. Spend considerable time with your pet

Among the very best ways to cheer up pets is by spending more time together, particularly when they’re depressed. Spending quality time together reveals your pet how much you love and cherish them. To transit from the pits to his/her joyful, joyful self, simply provide your pet your service, care, and love.

  1. Indulge your pet in outside activities

In the beginning, the pet will not look enthusiastic. However, because you enjoy each other’s company, you will be amazed by how jovial he will prove to be.

  1. Show your pet you are happy

Did you know dogs and pets are extremely smart when it comes to telling if you are happy, just by taking a look at your face?

  1. Socialize your pet

Is your dog or cat miserable because they lost a companion or relative? If so, then you want to take your pet to the park, or into a daycare centre, where they can socialize with other people. According to research, animals like same-species companionship.

5.

This strategy is much more of a positive reinforcement. It’s important to be aware that you shouldn’t be too sympathetic as this will encourage others to stay depressed so as to enjoy the same attention.

6.

Does your dog or cat have a favorite toy? They will be more cheery if they’re around their favourite toys.

  1. Play Them some music

In precisely the exact same way music soothes and calms human beings, most pet owners acknowledge that audio is also magical to pets. Surprisingly, you’ll have the ability to lift up the disposition of your pet by enjoying her or him some soothing music. Just make certain that the volume is not too significant. The last thing you need is to make matters worse.

If at all possible, bring your whole family with you when stepping outside for a ride. Along with enjoying the family’s business, he or she’ll also enjoy the fresh air.

You have to find ways to cheer them up as soon as possible. The above are some basic ways that you can cheer your pet.

The Cross

Cross, Summit Cross, Christianity

In the Bible, Pontius Pilate (the Roman governor) found no wrongdoing with Jesus. Jesus was then sent to Herod who also found nothing wrong with what he did or preached. In the end, Pilate asked the people,”What will he do with Jesus,” and they replied,”Crucify him! The”him” being referred to is the son of man, or the non-integrated self, further suggesting the fruits of the binding influence of religious ignorance.

Thus, the statement”Crucify him” is not about crucifying a physical person, but instead about crucifying the duality nature inherent in the human psyche (generationally). It represents the causal separation from God in the individual level. In addition,”Crucify him!” Means integrating duality, or the lower nature with the greater. Prior to integration, this life energetic governs life. Hence the term Roman governor represents the dialogue patterns of air-conditioning. Is also referring to crucify the son of man, the emotional attachment to this residual conditioning, as well as the fruits of the material world, and to uninterrupted mental activity. Son of man is symbolic for evolution from the material world of delusion, and into soul re-Membering, or divine consciousness! Thus, when our Herod nature, the ruler of this decrease self, is crucified, we come upon Son of God standing, or the Light of the purified soul.

Consider: it was the Roman soldiers who nailed Jesus to the cross. Roman soldiers symbolize being compelled to sin prior to integration, which is only the experiential degree of separation. In denying such, ascension out of duality is thwarted, thus prolonging suffering. The nailing of hands and feet symbolize the inability of the divine expression of this mind-body, or the inability of the mind to comprehend true spirituality. The Crown of Thorns symbolize victory over both of these limitations, and the eyebrow Blood represents the flow of Christ-consciousness.

What’s’the Cross’ and take it up and follow Me?

It was included in order to show what wrongdoing is”.

The cross itself (as different from the crucifixion) signifies the vertical and horizontal planes of existence. The flat plane represents duality or biblical wrongdoing, while the vertical plane represents divine will and stability. It’s this life in duality that we will need to concentrate attention on. We will need to constantly reflect. This is the spiritual homework assignment we all must be engaged in. When we do so, we embark upon the vertical plane, our highest spiritual nature.

The opposite of love is duality that’s rooted in fear and which represents the perishable as opposed to imperishable love or absolute existence. It exist to teach us vital lessons so that we may experience soul growth. We evolve so that we may consciously recognize individual wrongdoing, and thereby take up our cross and align our soul into the vertical path of life. Duality is the medium by which the human soul needs to wake.

In practical terms, it is the psychological media of the enslaved lower human nature that is taken up – rendered harmless to spiritual development. To put it differently, sub-conscious action is neutralized through conscious expansion. Prior to soul-freeing, the conscious mind was left powerless about the intensity of negative thought patterns.

To create sub-conscious integration more conceptually grasping, think about a volcano erupting into the skies; in human terms, it’s the upheaval of underwater emotional thought patterns into conscious awareness. When deep-rooted mind-sets get thrown upwards for conscious reflection, they eventually become integrated. This is the way the mind returns to fullness height; the soul freed into knowing its true unbounded nature. When vertical and horizontal become ONE, as divine consciousness, then you have the lamb lying down together with the wolf.

Gal 3:23 states:

“Before the time for religion come, the legislation (binding influence of lower nature) kept us all locked up as prisoners until the coming faith shall be shown”. This means that prior to transcendental consciousness, the law is unyielding.

Additionally, Col 2:14-15:”he cancelled the unfavourable listing of our debts with its binding rules, and did away with it entirely by nailing it to the Cross (by understanding duality thus do we transcend it). And from that cross (duality) freed himself from the power of the spiritual rulers and authorities” (freed from the binding legislation, from the hostage-taking nature of the subconscious jurisdiction, perpetrator of individual and global sin). This scripture is telling us: bring the interior Vertical light to rid the flat darkness or soul wracking.

We may remember also, once the biblical tombstone was rolled back, the apostles reported the tomb (the mind / body) empty, empty of sub-conscious nature, meaning the mind-body lively was purified into Ascension consciousness.

The disciples are emblematic of inner-body mechanisms called the 12 cranial nerves. These cranial nerves are responsible for every human activity, to include religious development. Thus the disciples are workers serving the body-soul energetic into coming upon the inner Christ, thereby enabling God-consciousness realization. With the cranial nerves getting purified, consciousness is empowered in perceiving spiritually, experience transcendentally. Thus, awakening these Manna-distributing stations are vital for soul nourishment and overall development of spiritual and physical well-being.

And while the physical body is a creation of the universal life-force, the soul’s Core Flame is not. An aspect of eternal God, the soul’s Essence enters the body. The soul, therefore, being the conduit of God-nature experiencing, and having entered the body, awaits awakening into spiritual nature by means of conscious contact with the universal life-force or kundalini located at the bottom of the spine. It is this conscious contact – in the coccyx area of the spinal column – which ignites the kundalini, resulting in awakening of the soul’s higher spiritual dimensions in the brain.

Think, Noah’s Ark (human human mind) and the two of everything taken to it – symbolism of duality content. By entering the body/mind meditationally, the mind eventually transcends its restriction and false identity, becomes attracted to Truth, soul-consciousness and unbounded awareness.

Gal 3-25 puts it:”Now that the time for religion (transcendental consciousness) is here (direct experience), the Law is no longer in charge of us”. Again, by inputting meditationally to the body / duality, the mind gets to experience transcendentally, gets to know what neutralizes the legislation, knowing which, similar to Noah’s Ark, the brain comes upon Mount or Unity consciousness, maximum degree of human development.

Jesus puts it John 2:19:”I will knock this temple down (duality nature) and rebuild it in three days” – 3 representing Unity, and days, period of transforming consciousness.

Similar to faith-consciousness, attaining Unity is not an exercise of memory referencing and intellectualizing of scriptures only. Similarly, when a gap in our thought cycle seems, Unity becomes experiential. By regularly expanding the thought-gap, expanding stillness and silence tolerance in the mind, the Sun or Unity consciousness becomes ever-present bliss-consciousness.

As duality nature and sub-conscious content conspire at forming human consciousness – what preserves lower human nature – thus, unwittingly, through spiritual ignorance, do we create the very conditions for the purpose of transmuting such consciously.

Jesus carrying the cross public streets, with soldiers whipping and driving him on, symbolizes the choice-less lively, before spiritual awakening, of sub-conscious content in our daily life. Jesus dropped 3-times – 3 symbolizing Divinity – meaning, we have each fallen from Divinity by way of this inherited duality / lower nature. But, then, this is exactly why we came to planet earth: to consciously transcend such, thereby knowing Higher states of consciousness.

Reality of Existence

The truth of our existence is two-fold: we’re both relative and absolute simultaneously. But in the early stages of spiritual development, individual consciousness is aware only from the relative-duality, and non-aware in Absolute-Unity status. This is because, at nervous system level, a medium of experiencing higher consciousness hasn’t been set up – the biblical veil hasn’t been rented.

In other words, prior to Self-realization the human nervous system functions in mono or duality consciousness only; the nervous system is reflecting only what is set-up, reflecting only what has been cultured into it. Thus, for the nervous system to have any experience, there must be a corresponding experience in place, a reflective dynamic capable of knowing simultaneous consciousnesses. In this circumstance, to experience Unity or transcendental nature, the nervous system has to be cultured into withstanding such. We cannot arrive at higher states of consciousness by an act of will or imposed belief systems. In achieving higher states of consciousness, a practical means of inner culturing is required; a process that involves natural harmonization of left-side and right-side brain. This complete brain encountering enables the understanding and retention of both eternal unity and relative duality consciousness simultaneously.

Alternating between transcendental silence in meditation and worldly action after meditation, over time transforms the nervous system / brain whereby simultaneous-knowing capacity of absolute and comparative / duality is preserved – human life staying permanently under Higher Self guidance while still at the relative world. In arriving at simultaneous consciousness capacity, thus eternal status is validated. When both elements of our presence co-exist as a Whole, making the kingdom of heaven within a conscious reality: experiential beyond dogma, doctrine and belief systems.

Total Potentiality

Each soul in character is a hieroglyph of Eternal Spirit, of the Kingdom of Heaven. The understanding of these Essence is through the physical body, specifically, the intellect. In bringing the wisdom to convergence, to point consciousness between the eyebrows in meditation, the intellect, emotions, senses and will, each become Essence aligned, cosmically shooting, made Resolute. Such is when set-up in the brain / nervous system allows for Total Potentiality or Infinite Intelligence become conscious reality, becomes established brain-nervous system consciousness – Awareness rooted eternally in Divine Essence, in Vertical Will.

Such is what makes understanding the following scripture so absolutely vital: John 12:32″and I, (human intellect, emotion, senses and will) if I be lifted up from this earth (ascension from duality, lower world, lifted from normal human consciousness) shall draw all men (manifestations of balanced emotions and soul-centered decision making) unto me” (unto Divine Consciousness).

As we can see, prior to spiritual awakening, we are each as spiritually dead, in need of’lift up’ – oblivious of our inherent complete status. Due to this spiritual death, human internal Christ or Higher Self remains temporarily out of Commission, buried by accumulations of non-neutralized lower-self energy routines. Thus the buried Christ referred to in scripture isn’t referring to a historical person, but to our own Christ within awaiting Resurrection to our consciousness.

So, finally, let us establish exactly what”take up thy cross” IS NOT. It’s two beams of wood on our shoulder or on anyone else’s shoulder. Nor is it all about enduring some life-situation heroically in order to please God. Not at all. And although perhaps conditioned by literal Bible interpretation into thinking this way, this scripture is not remotely about either of these two examples.

To Conclude,

But you must wait in the City (meditate, transformation of human consciousness) until the power from above (Divine Light) comes down upon you (our soul awakening)” Luke 24-49

Wasting time on social media

Man, Face, Head, Circle, Structure

When I was walking past a few stores a number of weeks ago, I saw that there were plenty of people on their Smartphone’s. As it was not busy, these people were busy using their Smartphone’s.

This didn’t come to mind because I thought that these people should be reading books, though.

It came to mind because I thought they would get far more out of reading books than they would by using their device. Rather than scrolling through different social media sites, they would be able to expand their mind with new information.

Now, there is always the chance that these people were reading an eBook on their apparatus or that they were sending important messages. I have no method of proving that these people were using different social media sites.

A Frequent Occurrence

However, even though these people were using their time in a productive fashion, it does not mean that they will always use their time this way. Furthermore, there are undoubtedly a great deal of people who do spend a whole lot of their time using these sites.

When I used to spend a fair amount of time using different social networking sites in the past, time just seemed to fly by.

Meaningless Messages

This was a time when I would send messages to people I actually saw in the actual world and to people I hadn’t seen in years. So, while a fair amount of dopamine was released in my own, not much else happened.

I came to find that I could use my time better, which induced me to gradually cut down the amount of time I typically spent on those websites. Writing, reading and spending time with people in the real world become far more important.

If you can realize that you are spending a good amount of time on social media every day, and you need this to change, there are loads of other things that you could do with your time. There are a myriad of books that you can read, if reading is your thing; if it is not, you could try a new hobby.

In the short term, it might not seem as though what you’re doing isn’t having much of an influence on your life, but as time passes, you may see just how much you have learned by spending less time on social networking. Additionally, some of the time that you spent on social media will now go towards your goals, making it easier for you to achieve them.

Conclusion

The modem day world is so full of distractions that it can be easy to get lost in what is going on’out there’ and to forget about what’s happening internally. Tuning into what things is hard with so many distractions and, once we have completed this, it requires a concerted effort to not be drawn off course from the bright lights that are all around us.

Grand-Children the Great Joy They Are Supposed to Be

Grand-Kids, Grand-Children, Girl, Boy
Grandparents all over the world are finding they are being thrust to parenting jobs, which leaves them drained and some unable to deal. The situation is driven by the need of parents to get ahead and they’re pushed by financial burdens and needs into a situation in which their children have to be cared for outside of the home. This involves child-minding by other people and it usually falls into the seniors in order to save money.
The world has changed considerably in the days when women were home makers. Now it’s recognized that they have to do their but to bring in income and share the burden of home ownership and other things they require.
Many are older and some infirm and only taking a kid in is a burden. In recent discussions with grandmothers who have this situation one, who’s over 60, has to take care of some 12 grandchildren during school vacations an at other times 6 of these. She listed the burden of cost as there’s no financial compensation for what she does. Meals, snacks, and even clothes are paid for from her pension.
While a trip to the lake where there are amazing facilities for walking and spending play time the number of grandparents pushing young children in strollers or kicking balls around together around the oval is telling. This was particularly noticeable during the recent school holidays.
There is no solution to this problem because the focus of everybody seems to be on making money rather than caring for children.
