Comments22/06/2017 #26 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsSimplicity and complexity are two sides of a coin and one simply needs to find a balance between the two. Like we do with life and death. With success and failures. Finding a balance between the two calls for understanding and reasoning and self-discovery and new creative paths.
Like you say
"Many paths present itself.
Every path is infinite in possibilities.
The question is are we ready to walk the path?
And how we evolve, walking the path of choice?"
A beautiful enriching buzz. Thank you @Savvy Raj22/06/2017 #18 Savvy Raj#15 First of all I appreciate your gift of assimilating thoughts and often interjecting the much needed practicality of purpose in them @CityVP 🐝 Manjit This is a gift you have honed so well in practice.I value these words, 'Thinking is the gift. Things are merely gifts'.Indeed and often we place our values on mere transactions than the power of transformations. I value your comment deeply not only because you sensed along 'the two moments' in these verses but also for the power of transformation in the thoughts in the verses presented simply in the strength of the interconnects. Thank you for your heartfelt reflections21/06/2017 #15 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI like the way you injected the Power of Three into your poem, which created two moments that added power to your thoughts.
The meaning we choose to perceive,
The connect we choose to establish,
The intention we choose to deduce
The dance of polarity,
The duality of nature,
The death and the birth
In a society that is constantly finding new ways of selling us things we don't need, the value of personal poetry is that it gives us something society badly needs, which is ways of thinking. Ths is the difference between a gift and merely a gift. We celebrate the interruptions more than we treasure the gifts. Thinking is the gift. Things are merely gifts.
For this thinking gift I thank you and so long as beBee continues to develops as a transformational gift rather than as a transactional gift, then the future for us here is a great space for those who prefer transformation rather than just transaction.21/06/2017 #14 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador@Savvy Raj, this is an exquisite piece.

Thank you for your generous words to this post .

So I am honoured to know you both equally enjoyed this piece and must share that I was and am filled with deep gratitude in this endeavour.21/06/2017 #10 Joel Anderson@Savvy Raj The more I read this, the more I just love the message.
"Simplicity dwells in the complexity
And complexity is just tangled simplicity
In an untangled arrangement.
The very arrangement is a fodder for imagination
Simple resides in the complexities.
Complex is just simplicity turned upside down.
A curiousity in exploration
Every path is infinite in possibilities."
Keep making a difference.

(never had so many retweets before, LOL)
You are completely spot on, pointing out that the "roots" are essential.
Sadly enough, we have entered in a spiral of selfishness. Games are "solo" intended, in comparison to the games we used to play. Friendships are virtual.
Old people are not respected anymore, just pushed away of our lives as an old broken toy.
People wrongly understand that in order to keep their safety, not to be harmed, need to put distance to others, not to get involved or committed.
Part of the happiness is as well take the risk of being harmed, trust the others, knowing that they are imperfect too, same as you, and will make errors. So what? Making errors is human, and accepting them is divine.

And while there are many examples of marriages that are wonderful, there i not denying the statistics. A successful marriage requires both people to be in it for the right reasons. Human nature and a greedy system require the change I suggested in my article.18/06/2017 #21 Lance 🐝 ScoularPt2/2 🦋
"In a garden" 🌱🌷🌼🌻🌲
says Chase, "growth has its season. There are Spring and Summer but there are also Fall and Winter 🍃🍁🍂
and then Spring and Sumner again. 🌾🌹🌺
As long as the roots are not severed all is well and all will be well."
Love and marriage also have their seasons.
David, your first list qualities above, from our parents generation (I am 68 and my wife younger 😊) tended to give us the "roots" for the bad season in our garden of LIFE.
My wife Sandie and I have had our "Winters."
Not "Winters of Discontent" but winters of hibernating in preparation for a new Spring.
Aided by 🐝🐝🐝🐝, the outcome is 🍯.
The flavour of the 🍯 changes as our love matures.18/06/2017 #20 Lance 🐝 ScoularPart 1/2
David, I read this earlier to day and then again.
Watched the Jack Nicholson & Hellen Hunt clip.
Read your Catching Butterflies post and this end passage made my mind jump to an interesting book...
..."So better change your strategy, and enhance your “garden”, yourself, your environment, the things you do, how you do them, get rid of the “garbage”, act as if you were used to be surrounded by butterflies,
and they will come pleasantly and willingly to pose in your nose."
And the book is one of my favourite Audible books, Being There by Jerzy Kosinski, Narated by Justin Hoffman.
And the part in the book your Butterfly flew me to was where the President of the United States of America asks the books unlikely hero, Chase the gardener,
"And you Mr Gardener, what do you think about the bad season on the street?"
Chance flustered within, reflects to the only love he has ever had, his garden, reflects, then calmly says.
Pt2...18/06/2017 #17 Anonymous#15 your words of "do what is in the best interests of both persons" makes me think about the other day, when my love told me how could it be I was all the time thinking about how to make her feel better. My response was, that this was my purpose, to make her happy. She asked, what are you doing for yourself to be happy? My answer, I don't know, I am somehow blind to it, this is your purpose, not mine.
To give not expecting a payback, this is love. Out of this, is a trade, if you do expect a payback.
So I see you have a three strands cord:
"Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." (Ecclesiastes 4:12)18/06/2017 #16 Harvey LloydGreat post and i would suspect that as the word love has evolved within media so marriage has evolved. Marriage is a commitment of a shared journey. The grass is always greener on the other side but even that grass will require maintaining at some point. I went to a conference on marriage and the speaker really brought forward the concept of where marriage has failed.
We spend more time designing and purchasing a home or a car than we spend on "building" our marriage. This statement really struck me, mainly because i had never considered that building a marriage was necessary as we loved each other. Even further thought was perplexing, how do you build a marriage? I had nothing.
The next few years i started to understand that building a marriage was going through change and understanding the bridges that needed to be built for the next leg of the journey. Previously i had only seen these bridges as my spouses need to change or she looking at me and expecting me to change. We laugh at it now but it was a challenging time in our life and i am glad that we learned how to build bridges together.
Great post and thoughts.18/06/2017 #15 Vincent Andrew@David Navarro López "we have forgotten that marriage is “us” instead of “I and you”." This is why marriage is so difficult. A couple has to learn to listen to each other and do what is in the best interests of both persons. If a compromise is needed, it has to be done with willingness and not resentfulness. It's about a lifetime of communication. It's about sacrifice and commitment to make it work. In my case, it's about putting God in the centre of our marriage. A very thoughtful buzz. Thanks David.18/06/2017 #12 Anonymous#11 Exactly dear Lisa, "Marriages that work develop love that is not easy to explain"
If one has only experienced the lack of it, can only see what love is not, but not what it really is.
Love changes, due to the fact that each individual changes too, and this make the relationship, change, evolve, and in the best case, to get enhanced.
I saw many times my parents understanding each other just with a glance. Later, I have been able to experience it myself, and it is much more enriching as it seems at first sight. Both enter in a secret place on which no one except them can see clearly what goes on, a safe place on which everything is simple, clear and secure. This secret place can only be built by the complicity, together with forgetting willingly some of our "selfish rights", in order to taste the overwhelming flavour of the honey of having the soul caressed, abandoned to each other.18/06/2017 #11 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWell said @David Navarro López. Marriage is give and take. It's mutual and doesn't come without it's challenges. There are many legitimate reasons not to stay in a marriage, eg: Abuse, cheating, no love or friendship and the list can go on. But, we all face challenges IE: raising children together, work, finances, differing opinions and more- those things can be remedied and with time, we move on and appreciate where we were vs. where we are today. Marriages that work develop love that is not easy to explain. Love changes with time. It becomes a deep and rooted friendship along with respect and understanding of the other that changes the dynamics. Thanks for this.18/06/2017 #9 AnonymousOH, Oh, how could I have missed it?

Las percepciones no son únicas, ya que de otra manera, un mismo estimulo, daría lugar a una misma respuesta... y sin embargo las respuestas a una estimulación similar, pueden ser asombrosamente divergentes... El presente perceptivo se convierte conceptualmente hablando en una construcción de pseudorealidades mentales que nos generan la ilusión de una realidad inexistente y solo percibida por nuestro cerebro.

El uso masivo de móviles, de redes sociales son otros ejemplos de nuestras vidas en paralelo disociadas de nuestro presente y de nuestra realidad...

Your cautionary tale is a great sequel to the Joni Mitchell song - They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot.
Sadly, not too many people heard the warnings then, and while children seem to start off aware of caring for the environment, our society seems rather astute at converting Greenies to conspicuous consumers, more concerned with personal comfort and their own need, rather than see themselves as part of a global community.

This is current state practice for those that can benefit from personal branding, but it isn't future state because long-term viability includes reputation as a 21st Century vision. Personal branding is not a 21st Century vision, but it is a way of turning viable community into a marketing machine.
Right now in Donald Trump - another example of personal brand there is a right-wing backlash. His arrival is now stoking a left-wing backlash against his brand. In a few years this will transform into a left-wing backlash and where I am sitting in 2020 I want to be sitting in a different place because I am there already, I am just waiting for time to catch up, so I can read this one day and how this reads in the long-view of history is beyond personal brand.
We are living in a past that is profitable and this past as profitable is what Clayton Christensen called "The Innovators Dilemma". Disruptive innovation is not personal branding, and Christensen details all those brands that are now yesterday's news because their management teams focused on doing the right thing and by doing what is clearly the right thing that would not get them fired and keep investors happy, they did not see the disruption. Sometimes we go native in a nice listening bubble.
I will be buzzing about a strong personal brand that is one of our students in our college and so I am not against personal branding, but I know this conversation is not relevant five years from now because the backlash against marketers is one that organizations should not be on the wrong side of or in being fully devoted to this one thing, it will ironically brand this branding.

Comments07/06/2017 #12 Vincent 🐝 ManlapazThanks for this post @Jim Murray. Finding the right community and the support extended to you is a testament of privilege and opportunity. It doesn't just promote your brand, but it magnifies and amplifies your voice and influence. I found beBee not just a tool but a complete set of a channel. All of the 10 lists you have cited above is not just a possibilities but a reality.

Comments14/06/2017 #58 Jeanette JOY FisherWhat is BeBee Express?
I'm going to do this post test on BeBee, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter links to blog, and my Instagram accounts and let you know how it turns out.
I always thought BeBee was a hookup site. I believe most social media marketers just don't understand how BeBee works. Perhaps I can save the $49 monthly Linkedin charge.
Love, JOY!13/06/2017 #56 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsHi @Charlene Norman
Welcome to beBeeland. 🐝🐝🐝🤗🤗🤗🐝🐝
Its going to be about 2 years with beBee and the journey is amazing. For me beBee is about people not about likes, relevants etc its about engagement and what one took away from the discussion which will be remembered for a very very long time.
I just read Jim's post and headed over to connect with you. This is exactly the way we get meet authentic and passionate individuals and there always something to learn from such engagements. Keep buzzing 🐝🐝🐝🐝👍10/06/2017 #54 Sweta ParmarFeeling so touched n honoured. Thank you for giving so much of love n respect ! I m glad ! M proud of being part of this platform ! Right now m not publishing or buzzing as i m in europe n working on my upcoming 'novel' too but very soon will be back. Thank you so much @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador. Regards!🙏🏻🌺 #4809/06/2017 #52 Javier 🐝 beBeeI love this comment from @Todd Jones !
I have never met any of my connections on this platform personally, yet I feel somehow personally connected to many. Weird, right? I guess it is a testament to the power of engagement through authenticity. Their excellent work has allowed beBee to develop a culture that is the best in social media.
Hopefully we will keep this culture. I am personally removing wasps accounts.08/06/2017 #49 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorAnd just to satisfy everyone loving beBee, a post or an update gets 50-200 views on LinkedIn, 1200 to 4000 views on beBee in less than a day or three. It is normal, LI = algorithmic restrictions vs beBee = Affinity propagation..two complete opposite philosophies. LinkedIn is for the Elite, while beBee is for everyone. You must start differentiating cleary between Oligarchy and demoscracy. Morpheus give you the choice, take the blue pill or take the red pill....LOL.08/06/2017 #48 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorBe(bee) Yourselves on the platform, because everyone else is taken. Be Authentic like @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood (live shows on FaceBook), be inspirational like @John White, MBA be dedicated like @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín participate in transcontinental debates and write stories/poems like @Sweta Parmar, @Tausif Mundrawala . @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt,08/06/2017 #47 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorDoes anyone remember a great browser in the start-up years,,, NETSCAPE, in the same years as Caramail, Yahoo...etc...
What happened to Netscape? While some people do not adapt, some are envisioning the transition, understand the lifecycle of the industry and then decide to sell at the right moment to the agreed price and move on to the next step or stage.
I think it is okay if LinkedIn slowly sinks, we all learned the rope of b2b social media thanks to Jeff Weiner, good, now it is time to move on, get more real with our destinies and affinities. More on the fields, less in front of a screen, but still though mobile equipped with our smart devices and favorites effective apps. great opportunity to build new ventures with like-minded like David B. Grinberg. Susan 🐝 Botello, Aleen 🐝 Zakka, Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBA or 🐝 Fatima G. Williams. Affinity propagation isn't new as a science, but beBee has the opportunity to grow and prosper on a different business model if it does fall into the hands of the Wall Street Owners the usual shareholders of the mogul's companies. It is all up to the creators to decnd give them space and inspiration to do so.
Do not hate LinkedIn, be thankful for it, we learned to qualify prospects in firms hierarchy and understand the ways of social selling and publish stories.08/06/2017 #46 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador@Paul "Pablo" Croubalian Thanks for inviting me into the conversation...I decided to join beBee a trimester ago, searching on the internet a sane alternative to the getting worse and worse LinkedIn platform, made for recruiters and not recruited, made for the minorities of 10K employees globalized multi-nationals , Then i found a track on twitter starting to follow @John White, MBA and its articles, then finding intersting stuff with @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian and @Juan Imaz as well as @Javier 🐝 beBee. When I understood that all the team had dive deep into what i was looking for in social media : Affinity propagation , i verified with my team that the App was using the algorithm. That is when and why i joined beBee, because, beBee was finally it! The right moment. the right people, and the right concept, unbiased.08/06/2017 #44 Jamil Ahmed@Charlene Norman you just said my words. This is excellent. I am using LinkedIn more then 3 years and have 1350+ connection. Just like you I rarely received 80 or 90 views for articles, where majority of the people I know personally.
But at beeBee they really make a difference. I found beBee is very facinating to me. Specially when I got a VIP at the right side of my name it feels awesome.08/06/2017 #40 Wayne YoshidaWelcome to beBee @Charlene Norman -- As others have said, this is the amazing part of The bebee Experience. And I agree with a lot of folks, don't abandon LinkedIn, supplement all social networks and include beBee. Looks like you are already being a great beBee Ambassador!
And way to go, @Jim Murray for your recruiting efforts in getting Charlene over here!
