- Producer18/09/2017How to Surrender Your PainSome people say, control is rooted in fear. I guess it depends on what you are trying to control. Trying to control the religious and sexual preferences of others is certainly a fear based thing to do. We cannot control the habits of other people....
Comments19/09/2017 #22 Lyon Brave#20 @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt It would be weird if we did considering we have almost nothing in common. We don't have the same native language, parents, and we weren't raised in the same country. We are not the same gender or ethnicity. It would be worrisome if we thought alike18/09/2017 #19 Bernard PoulinAmazing how you say things that get me to think about other things both related and not. So the word control as to fear as to controlling others makes me think about thoughts from a few years ago. Your fault!
- A democracy exponentially defined by its rules (control) is decreasingly recognized for its freedoms. - 2014
- Democracies are not strong nor are they progressive because they allow their citizens to think or speak out. They are strong and progressive when their citizens have never once had to wonder or worry about or even ask themselves whether they could or could not. - 2015
- To choose to become a better human being is a process of faith, not of controlling precepts. - 1998
- We are all ultimately free of any and all restraints (controls) - except those we impose upon our “selves”.
Sorry if my mind is not focused on the specifics of surrendering my pain. (Hell, I didn't know I was supposed to have some!) My bad!
Basically, I think you make people think and that was the whole purpose of my last book and so you're a kindred spirit of a younger kind and (as per your last largesse promo of "moi") a damned generous one at that! :) So now I'll go back to painting this complex portrait I am doing and try to make sense of my need for "self-control".18/09/2017 #18 Lyon Brave#17 @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt thank you for clarifying what you meant. You are getting into very abstract philosophical concepts like how do we know a tree really exist? No matter the structure of the universe or what role humans ultimately play in the universe, big or small, humans definitely can control some things. We can control to kill or not. That's a pretty big thing, humans choose. I know I have free will and choice over my actions because I have been hurt by poor choices and uplifted by better ones. I don't feel larger than life. I know I am very small if not insignificant in the big picture. However, I tend to focus on my life and what I can do in it and that makes me very powerful in my journey, because I am almost 100% focused on my own unique human experience. I am a very primal being, even primitive, worried about survival. Honestly, I am not worried about pondering these vague and abstract questions about the meaning of life. My take on spirituality is likely to be one of the most grounded earthy takes there ever was. With that being said, I can't control if it rains, who loves me, who hates me, if a meter destroys the earth, or if idiots make Donald Trump president. I could of spent the next four years super pissed about Donald Trump being elected lol. My point is you go to let things go lol...surrendering is facing reality and not living in a dream18/09/2017 #17 Devesh 🐝 Bhatt#16 "this will slide" as in this will move easily from thought into action.. Clarifying what i meant. It was careless of me.
Quote "honestly a lot of our lives is out of our control".... " surrendering is out to stop suffering"
I presumed that the basis was do not try to control what is out of control or what can never be controlled.
What if "surrender" here means to surrender to the facgt that there is no such thing as "control".
Just a predictable system co existing with countless unpredictable anomalies, including the human will.
What if we are not the system but the anomaly that helps the system transcend. If we oppose the transcendence,we cease to be our natural selves.18/09/2017 #16 Lyon Brave#15 This article never mentions anything being out of control, though it is talking about control and releasing the desire to control. Thus, there is nothing to let slide as there are no thematic errors or contradictions in thought. However, if we are assuming everything is out of control, this would clearly stem from a desire to control life and being uncomfortable with our lock of control instead of learning to flow is a source of stress and anxiety.

That door to the safe place won't close, they can always go back. If there is anything, anything that sparks an interest....just give it a try.24/07/2017 #24 Sue BryanNice post @Barbara Henslee. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. You've touched upon something that has been on my mind: the two innate urges that we all have that seem to be opposite: the urge to grow and expand and Self-Realize, and the urge to contract, stay safe and create reliable patterns. I think we are all dancing in the tension between these two.24/07/2017 #21 Debasish Majumderhistory does not repeat itself@Barbara Henslee. you will never get back to the former state. it is always changing and a new converted constituent which eventually come out from the fetus of history. will you expect former state of feudalism or Kingly state will at all reveal like its former state. always there is a new design of dispensation with new formation, having no relevance with it past state.23/07/2017 #14 Louise SmithThank you @Barbara Henslee for your post which is written with fluidity & a layout that makes this so easy to read and understand.
Who am I ? Self-realization
" I’m good at things I’d never thought of before.
I don't have to continue things that I’m not very good at or enjoy.
I can explore something else & learn by mistakes.
I can look at my family traits to help me discover and change myself. " (paraphrased)
Above these are the kernel of personal change. It's important to work on the inside and the outside. Both Nature & Nurture
I use these ideas everyday to help my clients move on with their lives after tragedy and trauma or to get a new job.
"Live and work with the possibility, maybe even the reality, that you are constantly being “interviewed.” "
maybe ok for some people, for those with mental health issues esp related to anxiety,
I wouldn't use this concept.
Instead I would encourage them to do the best they can as much as they can without overdoing it.
I love this concept
"Remember that self-discovery is a journey, not a destination."
So often process is sacrificed for $ and speed which often hurts and alienates people.
"I hope you are on "A journey worth taking."
- Producer16/07/2017Branches of WisdomMy exchange of comments lately with the thoughtful Tricia Mitchell led to the writing of this buzz. Tricia wrote "Dearest @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you are too kind. I have greater breadth than depth, where my knowledge is concerned...
Comments31/07/2017 #52 Tricia Mitchell#7 Thank you dearest @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I appreciate your mention of our conversation and that it formed the basis of your buzz. There are a couple of strands now running through my mind. In terms of branches of wisdom, and your buzz where you invited people to enhance your model (I believe there was reference to venn diagrams, it may have been represented as a continuum; I cannot find your buzz right now, I thought it was this, https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/i-love-you-what-does-it-mean but now I'm not sure).... I'm currently pivoting (yet again), which leads me to question whether we start out as saplings, grow roots, branch out and diversify, only to then, with our breadth of knowledge and wisdom, converge on and simplify all that is? In my personal experience, I'm now being shown the 1 thing that will set people free and it is to be my key message. The vehicle and the message do not reflect my journey, but were all nutrients necessary for my growth. It's so deceptively simple that anybody without the knowledge I acquired, but who was wise enough to feel the truth that has been known through the ages, could impart it to others.
Is it about knowledge or wisdom? Knowledge can enable us to be wise or act as tyrants, depending on how we use it. An uneducated man can be the wisest soul that most educated men seek counsel from. A knowledgeable man can masquerade as a fool, though in wishing to be compassionate in my communications, that seems unkind. Maybe we can liken it to the Riddle of the Sphinx? "What walks on four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, three legs in the evening, and no legs at night?" We start off simple - become complex - then refine & simplify our knowledge as nourishment for others?31/07/2017 #50 Tricia Mitchell#47 thank you dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I apologise for the tardiness in my response. Ovid's Metamorphoses springs to mind. It's been an interesting time & continues to be so. The irony about being consistent in our communication with living bodies is not lost on me.
As I am being more purposeful in my communications, if I am led by the Divine to address it in a buzz somehow, I will do. I thank you for the suggestion, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee22/07/2017 #48 Yogesh SukalThank you @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee for appreciating my comment. Continuing to the point of turning information to knowledge and knowledge into wisdom.what if information we have is not enough. does this lmiting our wisdom.
One of philosophy group, someone posted "when nothing is sure everything is possible".
I guess most wisest approach to keep mind curious and open.
hence the some of few examples in academics trying some laws from one field to another field and it works.
So in my opinion branching out with curiosity and with open to all possibilities while branching out towards wisdom.18/07/2017 #45 Tricia Mitchell#25 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you mentioned if the trees could talk I know of people who purport to communicate with animals. I know what I am able to do in the non-physical realms, so I looked for a tree communicator. I don't know who authentic this man is or isn't, but I have heard of others who claim they are able to understand what trees are communicating. Here's a short clip of Jim Conroy talking about helping trees to be healthy, internally, then supporting them to be in synch - in groups, based on community and categorisation, then "balances the ecosystem" Never heard of him before until I searched online this evening https://youtu.be/UElnvKgOovY (under 4 minute video)18/07/2017 #43 Tricia Mitchell#36 love your comment, Jean Serio, so many people prefer to remain in their comfort zone, enduring the discomfort of the familiar, than taking risks. Growing up (depending on which era you belong to), we are told to go for the 'safe bet' not to risk everything that we have worked for. To be grateful for what we have accomplished (even if it has made us miserable in the process). I have met accountants, who joined the family business, because their parents were accountants. They didn't question whether if what they wanted to do was at variance with what was expected of them. Then, sometimes, they wake up one day in their 40s and question whose life they're living, as it's certainly not one of their choosing... Then begins the search to uncover who they truly are and their desires, when they're not looking to seek approval from their parents.18/07/2017 #42 Tricia Mitchell#38 Indeed dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee one of my buzzes in the making is of a woman who is preparing for exams. She is worried that she will not pass the assessment. Reaching out for assistance in a social media group, everyone suggested strategies. As I l tend to go against the grain, I asked her a veiled question: "Supposing you didn't have test anxiety?" What I meant was, "What is the benefit of this fear you've created?" Instantly, she got the awareness: fear of failure and money constriction. The tuition had cost a lot and she couldn't afford to fail. Yet, rather than choosing to change her belief pattern, she chose strategies (which work, but on a clean slate are far more effective). So, yes, fear does have a function - protection, including protecting us from failure, if we exhibit perfectionist traits. It's amazing how false assumptions can restrict our lives and choices.17/07/2017 #39 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#37 surely you are a born poet dear @Tausif Mundrawala. Yes we make false assumptions. It is onlt recently that science found the intricate relatioship between trees and fungi. Who knows if there is a hidden relationship between weeds and trees. Love the clarity with which you express yourself.17/07/2017 #37 Tausif MundrawalaSometimes we think that a weed like branch which had grown without our permission should be axed as soon as possible. But we may not know that the weed like branch would flourish one day and would become the rising star in the entire body of a tree. Getting rid of branches won't help because we may channelize our energy in trimming and manicuring it to look it's best. We don't know the fact that the most uncertain shapes and sizes of branches would make it an artist's delight when we see through through the lens of one. In the difficult time of grief which I am going through right now have allowed me to channelize my energy into more reading and reflecting on certain subjects and topics. Let these branches flourish to it's best level and allow it to bear fruits in future. Am glad that you shared this with us and am thankful for all your support, Sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee17/07/2017 #36 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAThank you Ali Anani for another thought-provoking post. This particular post reminds me that often people don't branch out because they feel comfortable in the position they're currently in. Perhaps this is not the best position for them, nor will it provide them the salary or benefits required to better support their family; nor stimulate passion or a sincere feeling of accomplishment. In short they generally fear 'branching out'.
An interesting article in Psychology Today, by Mary C. Lamia PhD - 'Why You Should Fear Failure' - Dr. Lamia states it succinctly - "Many of the professionally successful people I’ve studied—both procrastinators and non-procrastinators alike—tend to fear failure. Some of them worry that a fear of failure might jeopardize their careers, especially those who tend to procrastinate as well." Here's a link to the full article - http://bit.ly/2uv5ppI

- 14/12/2016Just left a review of this fabulous book by a great bee, @Deb Lange and mentioned the fact that we met on beBee!!!
Here is the most interesting fact about Deb Lange's book. It is helping me so much, that I want to spend all my available time playing, and walking, and sensing the world around me – I keep popping away from my keyboard when I sit down to write a review.
I recently had the good fortune to meet Deb on a new social media site – beBee. We live in such a magical time. You can synchronistically bump into an author on the other side of the world, a few months before her book is published, strike up a few conversations, and then when the book is available – it is the exact guide that you need to help you help yourself through a period of immense transition.
This is truly a MUST EXPERIENCE book as read is too one-dimensional to describe the full impact of learning about embodied wisdom. Deb Lange is a marvelous guide through the rites of passage that will allow us to operate with a full body intelligence.
I really recommend that anyone looking to understand their sensory-based body wisdom get a copy of this book - the words and illustrations partner to create a sense of feeling what one is reading.

Most especially in how I have been able to have so many conversations with @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee - there is something very powerful to the concept of "Bringing the Book Alive"
I am in my element alone with a book, but there is further magic & lots of breakthroughs when we can have a series of conversations after reading the book.

I loved this "that place where the one who 'sees' that which is not - arises from a much deeper level of awareness that may be far more 'real' than what the mind calls reality". I shall put it in this way: our brains are limited by reality; our imagination aren't limited because they see beyond reality. With imagination we see what doesn't exist and then our brains try to turn imaginations into reality.25/08/2016 #60 Sara JacoboviciI regret posting my comment before I had the opportunity to read all the comments from your readers @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.
