Los Sufis quieren compartir, pero tienen que hacerlo con aquellos que puedan beneficiarse de esta compartición y por lo tanto puedan continuar el proceso de compartir con otros que vendrán. Esto requiere que los Sufis usen su energía en “enseñar cómo aprender”, antes de que cualquier tipo de compartición pueda tener lugar. Compartir la pura sensación de importancia, o de ser un humano, o incluso un sirviente de la humanidad, puede hacerlo cualquiera: y es el tipo de compartición hacia la cual la gente siempre está esforzándose. Pero el mínimo deber humano es servir a otros… no es un gran logro. Sentirse importante es un vicio, no una virtud, no obstante lo escondido que esté como participación en algo noble.

Your brain on gratitude: How a neuroscientist used his research to heal from grief

Neuroscientist Glenn Fox has dedicated his life to studying gratitude — how it improves our resilience, lowers stress, and boosts overall health. He’s an expert on the ability of gratitude to help us through tough times.

But on Thanksgiving in 2013, Fox was feeling anything but grateful. That’s because, just a few days before, he’d lost his mother to ovarian cancer.

The day after, going down to Starbucks for coffee and some pastries, “it was like the most intense experience ever. And I just thought, how am I even going to get through this? How am I even going to order?”

Fox was just months away from completing his Ph.D. on the neural bases of gratitude. He knew from his research how therapeutic gratitude can be — and how it could help him in his long journey recovering from grief. What he didn’t know was how to make that happen on a practical level.

“Liderança tóxica” é o principal motivo de pedidos de demissão

Qual é a maior causa de pedidos de demissão numa empresa? Excesso de trabalho? Salário baixo? Não: estudo da consultoria BambooHR constata que 44% dos pesquisados alegam ter pedido demissão por causa do “chefe tóxico”, que lhes tirou a motivação de trabalho por uma série de razões. A maior causa (mencionada por 20% dos entrevistados) é o chefe roubar o crédito pelo trabalho feito pelo subordinado, sem reconhecer seu valor (e 63% condenam esse tipo de “estelionato profissional”).

Mas a lista de causas de pedidos de demissão vai longe: chefia não manifestar confiança ou dar poder; ignorar seu excesso de trabalho; não estabelecer recompensas financeiras por conquistas; contratar ou promover pessoas erradas; não apoiar o subordinado em disputas com clientes; não dar orientações claras; adotar microgerenciamento que não permite autonomia; ressaltar suas fraquezas e não qualidades; e não deixar claras suas expectativas (ufa!).

Meet Abu Zayd al-Balkhi Who Introduced the Concept of Mental Health In Psychology During The 9th Century

Abu Zayd al-Balkhi was a 9th century Muslim polymath, whose writings touched on subjects as varied as geography, medicine, philosophy, theology, politics, poetry, ethics, sociology, grammar, literature and astronomy. Born in 849 CE (235 AH) in the Persian village of Shamisitiyan, within the Balkh (from which he gets his name) province, now a part of modern day Afghanistan, he went on to write more than 60 books and manuscripts. Unfortunately, most of the documents authored by him have been lost over the years, with only a minority of his work reaching us in the modern era. Of the few aspects of his legacy that have reached us, namely his development of the “Balkhi School” of terrestrial mapping, and his work on the Sustenance of the Soul, both show the intellectual prowess of the scholar. Al-Balkhi received his early education from his father and as he grew older, he began studying the scientific and artistic branches of knowledge of the time. In terms of his temperament, he is described as being shy and contemplative.
