(Greek Λαοδικεία, from λαός laos, "a people," δίκη, díkē, "right, just, lawful, upright, innocent")

The highest of the seven churches mentioned in Revelation of St. John. Although several ancient cities held this name, the Biblical reference is related not to the mistranslated "Asia," but to the Hebrew word עשיה "Assiah," which in Kabbalah relates to our body. Laodicea is one of the seven "churches" (Greek ἐκκλησία ekklēsia, "place of assembly"), energetic gathering places, called chakras in Sanskrit.

"When the Kundalini reaches the pineal gland it opens the church of Laodicea. This chakra has 1,000 splendid, sparkling petals. This is the crown that shines like an aura of light upon the head of the Saints. The atom of the Holy Spirit exists in the pineal gland. It is in this church that we attain the white dove of the Holy Spirit; here we fill ourselves with illumination, wisdom and omniscience." —Samael Aun Weor, The Yellow Book

"The Church of Laodicea exists in the pineal gland. During the time of the Hyperboreans, a virgin with the name of Laodicea existed. She was carrying offerings to Delos, or Delphi, of ancient Greece." —Samael Aun Weor, Tarot and Kabbalah

Also:

"The people of Delos wisely said that the Hyperboreans had the beautiful and innocent custom of sending their sacred, divine offerings in the hands of two enchanting and ineffable virgins. The name of one was Hyperoche and the other Laodicea." —Samael Aun Weor, Magic of the Runes

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"We should not mistake the Truth with opinions. Many think that the Truth is this or that, or that the Truth is within this or that book, or within this or that belief or idea, etc. Whosoever wants to experience the Truth should not mistake beliefs, ideas, opinions and theories with that which is the Truth. We must experience the Truth in a direct, practical and real manner; this is only possible in the stillness and silence of the mind, and this is achieved by means of meditation."
