MBG: These Caffeine Alternatives Will Give You A Natural Energy Boost

We all have our morning routines. Part autopilot, part ritual, what we do each morning helps us get ready for what the day brings. For some, it all starts with a staggering zombie walk to make coffee (I include myself in this category). But for others who are seeking an alternative to caffeine to jump-start the morning, there are many natural energy-boosting options.

Daily Good: What Does a Compassionate Workplace Look Like?

Compassion in the workplace may sound foreign, but studies have shown that cultivating compassion at the office can have remarkable outcomes for product design, employee and customer engagement, and accountability. Compassion is at the root of delivering quality service, says Monica Worline, because “Service quality hinges on relationships, and relationships deepen when we listen and hear what’s going on in someone else’s life.

Elephant Journal: Every Day is a Prayer.

I don’t much believe in praying on our knees, hands clasped.
Still, I pray all day.
I grew up with the religious view of prayer, which felt like a pleading request for a temperamental God to step in and deliver what I asked for. It felt a bit like unworthiness waiting to be transmuted.

These next three evenings – September 13 to 15, 2018 – watch for the waxing crescent moon to travel eastward through the zodiac. The moon pairs up with the dazzling planet Jupiter on September 13, and then moves in between Jupiter and the red star Antares on September 14. Finally, on September 15, the moon sweeps to the north of the red star Antares, the heart of the constellation Scorpius the Scorpion

Patheos-Pagan: Wiccan Rede: Harm none, spell won’t be done

Many moons ago, through a strange twist of fate, Phyllis Curott’s Witch Crafting landed on my door mat. I wasn’t particularly excited about reading it but through lack of other reading fodder at the time, I began to read. By the end of the book, I realised ‘witch’ was something that had been missing in my life. Without anyone to turn to on my new path, I began to read but this time with an insatiable appetite. It wasn’t long before I came across the Wiccan Rede:
“An Ye Harm None, Do What Ye Will”

Inner Journey:

FIND PEACE INSIDE

“All spiritual disciplines are done with a view to still the mind. The perfectly still mind is universal spirit.”
— Swami Ramdas

Getting into the habit of meditating, praying and/or resting daily helps us pull back from our preoccupation with the material world. In silence and solitude, we have an opportunity to pay attention to what’s happening inside rather than outside.

When we do this consistently, we learn to relax and to quiet and detach from our mental chatter and our turbulent emotions. As we begin to witness ourselves in personality, we also begin to experience our soul.

“Meditation may require a lifetime to master, but it will have been a lifetime well spent.” If you want to judge your progress, ask yourself these questions: Am I more loving? Is my judgment sounder? Do I have more energy?Can my mind remain calm under provocation? Am I free from the conditioning of anger, fear, and greed? Spiritual awareness reveals itself as eloquently in character development and selfless action as in mystical states.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Awareness

“Every dog has its day, but it’s not every dog that knows when he’s having it.”

-Winifred Gordon, A Book of Days (1910)

Is today your day? Sure it is! Why wouldn’t it be? Expand your awareness to include all the beauty and joy and love and peace and goodness that is in you and through you and all around you. Today and every day is your day – recognize it, and enjoy it!
