One of the best ways to help others is by encouraging them with a sense of empowerment and courage. Don’t take on their burdens by trying to solve their problems for them, just simply ask yourself which words and actions would help them feel inspired to face their challenges head-on. By empowering others, we also empower ourselves.
For those of you who don’t know, singer Alicia Keys recently decided to start using her music to discuss issues that need discussed. This song from her, entitled ‘We Are Here’, encourages us to come together and start asking the essential question: why are we here?
It’s a definite mind opener, and I recommend it for anyone who hasn’t heard it yet. Enjoy!
If we ever feel too drained to carry on, we can keep in mind that there’s nothing wrong with resting every now and then. We don’t want to rest away all of our time on earth, but we don’t want to drain ourselves by trying too hard or refusing to rest either.
Sometimes, the best way we can be of service to others is to let ourselves rest when we could otherwise continue to work away, because we’ll return to our work refreshed and more able to contribute to our ongoing conscious revolution.
We’ll want to be at our best if we want our work to be pure or potent, and if this means taking some time off every now and then to regain any energy we may have lost, we might as well embrace it.
We can’t do anything pure or potent if we’re too depleted to contribute wholeheartedly, and our contributions will be much more potent when we give them from a loving and refreshed perspective. The next time we want to contribute to our revolution, let’s keep our energy level in mind and either act or rest accordingly.
How do you choose to nurture yourself today?

In December 2013, the German authorities completed a Renewal Assessment Report (RAR) for the re-approval of glyphosate in the European Union. According to the German authorities, there were no risks to health, and it was even suggested that the acceptable daily thresholds for long term exposure (ADI) to which consumers could be exposed might be raised. Now, Testbiotech (The Institute for Independent Impact Assessment in Biotechnology) has published a comprehensive report on the latest determination regarding the risk of the herbicide chemical glyphosate and doesn’t agree with German authorities at all. The German report is being called ‘inconclusive’ and untenable. Continue reading

What if the simple act of doing yoga could heal your diseased heart?
A new study titled, “Effects of Yoga in Patients with Chronic Heart Failure: A Meta-Analysis,” reveals that this ancient practice, ever-increasing in popularity in the West, has profound benefits to those who are suffering from cardiovascular disease.
Previous to this study, the idea that yoga could heal a diseased heart was considered strictly theoretical, which is what motivated a team of Portuguese researchers to put the concept to the test. Continue reading
