At this point in my life, there are few mornings I could get through without a little help from a caffeinated leaf or bean and, believe me, I am grateful for those natural (if a bit, at times, too agitating) sources of energy. I don't like to depend on that external boost, but let's face it: we do what we can and then we use the tools available to us.
That being said, there is another kind of energy--a cleaner energy, so to speak. This is light energy; this is the photosynthesis of the spirit, and we've all felt it. It is transformative, and it feeds itself. All it takes is a little practice, a little quiet, and a little faith that you are, indeed, a divine creature sprung from divine roots.
Tap in, root to rise, and bravely, audaciously, bloom.
