    As a mother I wanted my daughter’s experiences to be better than my own.My mother grew up during the Great Depression. Her father was very strict.

    Wiping Away the Condensation
    Wiping Away the CondensationAs some of you may know, last week I unearthed a post from my drafts folder and brought it back to life. It was a 2-year-old post and it just felt right to give it some love and attention – finally. And today, I find myself there again. Revisiting...

    "I was lost in the intricacy of the maze and I needed to find my way out. I was finally ready to wipe away the condensation from the mirror and face me."

    This post has touched me deeply, @Laura Mikolaitis. I read it on the other site a few times and read it right before bed last night. I find it hard to adequately express how well you have captured the core conundrum I - and I think a lot of the writerly sorts of folks face. As we can become internally lost in the intricacy of what we can do in our minds......

    Our own minds can become labyrinthine places that lock us into an immune system battle where we attack our own best qualities and struggle with how to be simply who we are.

    And yet, the solution is simply awareness - the NOW, the PRESENT:

    "I’m always amazed at how something that seems so trivial can really turn out to be enlightening"

    I am beginning to become comfortable with the jarring thought that the search for meaning is extraneous, but the search for feeling - anything that ratchets our focus into the active experience of being alive - is all that we need to ponder when it comes to feeling the incredible awe of being alive.

    The second we launch into storycreating - the internal, ego-based, judgemental sort. We pop ourselves into a zone of losing touch with the flow of feeling, the zone of sensory wonder, and the blissful practice of being alive. Close

    I truly enjoyed this, Laura. I can relate because there were times in my life where I tolerated things rather than stand my ground. After a while, one becomes too accepting of things that could have been changed for the better. In the meantime, those "things" compound and eat away at one's happiness. There are times when I feel we can't see the forest for the trees. Exceptional post.

    #1 Thank you @Sara Jacobovici for your thoughtful and encouraging comments. Change can be a scary word for some - even me; which is why I enjoy writing about it. Doing so gives it life and purpose and helps me to grow. We should be nurturing change where and when we can. But it starts within us and before we can champion it in the outside, we often need to nurture it on the inside.

    Definitely appreciate the metaphor @Laura Mikolaitis, you used it perfectly! As much as I am passionate about the power of the metaphor, I am passionate about the discussion about change. And Laura, you do it justice when you write:
    "You see, what I failed to realize was that I could change things. Maybe not necessarily the circumstances, but I could certainly alter the manner in which I dealt with them."

    Receiving, slowly through every pore of my being, connecting seamlessly with a swan on the river today, we watch each other, we exchange energy, the river in winter, muddy and brown yet the waves hit the banks as sea in mid-summer and it’s just above 12 C which for winter is just a perfect summer temperature, and the water wave sounds calm the spirits, I receive their message of calm and peace within, birds fly and change spots on the river to fish for food, daydreaming about traveling to Venice with my partner, walking the narrow Venice canals in Spring, driving to the Alps and may be down to the French Coast to Provence to smell the Spring rise up there, to feel and receive the nature within, to eat escargot and drink meticulous white wine from the region Pays d’Oc and bless every day I am on this Earth sharing it all, sharing my love and full appreciation of the momentary bliss of now, all through daydreams by the river Danube in my home city of Belgrade. I received daydreams freely and richly today and I wish you all happy and blissful daydreaming wherever you are. Dunja Rado

    @Terri Barr - I really admire the sense of oneness that pervades your story. Even as you chose to write it in an more objective 3rd-person style, it is clear to see the emotions you went through, that exist in you still as a story, but without the capability to trigger further hurt.

    This is a very profound look into one way to create peace within us for the stories that we find so hard to tell.

    It may take years, counseling, and all sorts of alternate and complimentary work - but when we can narrate our own story, we are so much more likely to be the author of our future.

    I am grateful that you shared this inspiring piece of writing with us on beBee.

    This is so true. When we constantly dwell on things that hurt or angered us, it will keep in a negative frame of mind. But when we choose to think about the more positive things that we want to do or just come our way, it will keep us from going down into a pit that is hard to climb out of.

    Thanks @🐝 Fatima Williams Fatima for connecting me to Laura's post. I agree with you Laura. I sense you might have an interest in my book, Trust Your Senses - Embodied Wisdom for The Modern Age https://www.amazon.com/dp/0995437203
    As @Deb Helfrich says - it is s book to experience not just read - and it is all about what I call our next step to integrate thinking with sensing the language of our body - a language we have neglected as we have been so focussed on thinking as if it only comes from
    Our mind- brain. I believe the more we develop these capacities we will have another exponential shift in our expanding awareness and potential. I look forward to connecting.

    "Listen to your body" This is as simple and as complex as life gets, @Laura Donnelly. Our wisdom is our body, but as a modern society we have build so many structures and habits that ignore our bodies that we never even take a few seconds to listen to the constant dialogue our bodily sensations are trying to engage us in.

    Great buzz on listening to our body and controlling out thoughts and it's actions. @Laura Donnelly. I am reading a book called Trust your senses by @Deb🐝 Lange Where she talks about listening and trusting our sense. She talks about our inner dialogue and how to create inner freedom. I am halfway through as it's pretty intense and a wonderful book.
    Choice plays a very big Vital factor here ! Do we choose to listen to what our body is saying?

    When a person has access to both the intuitive, creative, and visual right brain, and the analytical, logical, verbal left brain, then the whole brain is working. In other words, there is psychic synergy taking place in our own head. And this tool is best suited to the reality of what life is, because life is not just logicalβ€”it is also emotional.

    "Yes" or "No". Each of these words represent the logical brains conclusive view. One answer inspires the right brain to go to work, the other says why bother.

    For synergy to work we must first deal with "No". http://www.williamury.com/books/getting-past-no/ View more

    For synergy to work we must first deal with "No". http://www.williamury.com/books/getting-past-no/

    Our logical brain is also part of the Limbic system when "No" is the conclusion. Some simple exercises to complete before you state your position:

    1.Do have to say "No" right now"?
    2.Do i Have enough info to say "No"?
    3.If i answer "Yes" now, will i loose my ability to say "No" later?

    Say "Yes" until you cant. Keep the whole brain on line. Close

    Couldn't agree more, life isn't just logical, it is also emotional. I think I'm working on a form of synergy with Therapist, although it's not called Synergy,- training a side of my brain to take in unprocessed traumas etc... in order to process them in a manner that is much healthier.

    The synergy between the right and left brain leads to what's known as fluid intelligence or emotional intelligence which provides the person with focus and fuel required for all business situations where creativity,innovation and analytics are integrated to deliver value.

    #61 You aren't just a mind reader dear @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, but equally a soul reader. Yesterday, I exchanged messages with the beautiful mind @Sara Jacobovici on co-authoring an ebook. I suggested the topic of time as a possibility. I would even suggest here to title it "Curtain of Time". Behind the invisible curtain we have our imaginations, surprises and expectations. May be one day you and I would consider co-authoring an ebook as well. This possibility suggests alsoand so I add behind the curtain of time lies also possibilities. You are a grand soul Lisa.

    #55 For @Cyndi wilkins

    Dear Cyndi, my condolences to you and your family on your recent loss.

    At times like this I find there is solace in those who share a similiar experience, especially a daughter honoring her father. We do that in whatever way is right for us. @🐝 Fatima Williams wrote a personal blog about her father which is worth sharing again

    They say time is medicine ; I now believe it's a myth

    This is a time for sisters to share, and for us to stand back and let two daughters speak in private, for in these conversations there is a knowing and a feeling that goes beyond what anyone can say in their respects and the all the solemn words of comfort.

    #53 Dear @Cyndi wilkins do you know why I like being online?

    I have a big, big family - they are integrated, they are noisy, every weekend there is little difference between a party and the family as they are. In these moments I get to spend time by myself and I am alone with my thoughts - and as soon as I have finished this, I am back into the communal spirit. Family is important to me, but privacy even more so - in that regard I am different to all those around me - they like being together and when the girls who married come home on the weekend - the noise volumes go up.

    And then there is these times when I get to be alone with my thoughts to let them flow. I get to be with my family as I grow. What can there possibly be anything in life greater than that.

    Do you know what I like about Sara?
    She has similiar inclinations - and I know that, I know that for sure - not here at beBee but out there back in Israel.

    I know it in the story of Ida

    I know it in the story of Joseph

    Those two blogs stand shoulder above anything else she has written because she has touched upon the two most important people in the world. A mother. A father.

    It is not her intellect or her ability to recognize the human spirit - it is who she loves more than anything in the world.
    That kind of heart - rest assured. I know it. I honour it. The same is true of @Ali Anani - and these hearts are what I call greatness.

    11/02/2017 #53 Cyndi wilkins
    What an honor you have bestowed upon such a deserving "Force to be reckoned with" @CityVP 🐝 Manjit... "Appreciation"....I made a comment on a recent post and noticed that Sara had made a comment immediately following mine making mention of what an honor it was to be following the comments of two other heavy hitters on LI...I was not one that she mentioned initially, but when she noticed that I had chimed in just before her, she immediately came back in and apologized for the oversight...Who does that? "Depth to cognitive capability"... OKAY...This woman sets my brain afire!...."Sara is in flow when she enters conversations.".... Not only is she in the flow, she commands that you be too...It took me a good twelve hours of restful sleep to answer to one of her recent inquiries...@Sara Jacobovici and @Ali Anani stand alone in their own right...They are two incredible powerhouses on this platform...Personally, I would love to see them pair with other authors who could greatly benefit from their guidance...Not that they do not compliment each other...But the energy generated by their combined circuitry might blow a fuse around here;-)

Fatima [ @🐝 Fatima Williams ] drew attention to his buzz some weeks ago as she recollected it and on the day I wrote it, it was considerably special and that is the quality of the finest wine also - it gets better with age - which you mention in your comment "Time reveals".

    Time reveals and acts like a time source to make certain issues cleare or as a magnet to spotify certain behaviors. This is what I feel now having read this buzz again. The main clarification that I became aware of is your writing dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit "The second of those qualities is depth to cognitive capability. It is the kind that Ali Anani is constantly recognizing and when he is interacting with her, the exchanges elevate and the conversation becomes that much more enriched". It is not that you mentioned my name (and this is honorable) as much as it is the credibility of this statement. Now, dear @Sara Jacobovici have an amazing synchronicity and we have been inspirational to each other.

    @Donna-Luisa Eversley thank you for the shout out and drawing me to @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven's post. Preston, thank you for sharing your words and insight with us. We are bound to take indirect paths in our life time; and while it may seem like a wrong path it could be leading you to another intersection where the direct path will present itself. Life is full of lessons. Some are easier to interpret than others and yet some leave us stupefied - searching for the answers and the why.

    You raise an excellent point about choices vs. circumstance. We make choices, and more often than not those choices are what lead us through the chapters of our lives. Yes, we can find ourselves in circumstances but our choices will be the guiding force in helping to see us through - or not see us through - depending on the course we take.

    I wish you well on your journey.

    Thanks for tagging me @Donna-Luisa Eversley. I gave up on people I made time for and *tried* to keep a friendship going. Life teaches us so much. As we grow older or mature faster (many do), we realize fairly quick who not only has our backs but our best interest in mind. And your right, we've all been down the wrong path and surely, we will be again. It's being able to recognize and admit we have in order to keep going with our head held high.

    #4 I like your view. It reminds me of the story of Joseph. God was the Director of his life. The circumstances of his life took his into slavery, then into prison, and later into the Pharaoh's house. Joseph rose to the top, but it took a while to happen. Joseph was 17 years old when he was sold into slavery (Genesis 37:2). He was 30 when Pharaoh promoted him (Genesis 41:46), and had been in prison for two years before that (Genesis 41:1). So he was in Potiphar’s house for 11 years. It took 11 years for the full measure of God’s blessing to be accomplished in Joseph’s life. In the end the God's Directed him to save Egypt.
    Yet, we all still have our choice to listen to the Director.

    #3 @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure. The Secret to saving yourself years of time, is to learn from someone else's failures by Reading. But you are absolutely right.

    @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven your comment here is one that I've told myself and others many times ."I was were I was from the sum of the "best choices" that I had made up to that point." When we look back its always after the fact. When finally one makes a decision whatever the outcome, accepting we made the best choice as we knew, is important. I've listened to many people complain about 'if they had known better they would have'. In my opinion, the after analysis is okay in moving forward and learning, but not for berating oneself! Good post. Thanks for sharing :-)

    #12 Thanks for the tips, Wayne. The problem with the filter is that I am using an iPhone. When the photographic world went digital, I never replaced my Olympus SLR, which had done yeoman service when I was a yachting magazine editor because it could be programmed to automatically bracket all my shots and so made up for my lack of skill and knowledge. As to the shooting angle, it gets to be a compromise between eliminating the glare and reflections versus the distortion induced due to perspective. I could probably, if I asked, get help from my wife who is a fine arts graduate with a major in photography, but .... well, you know how that goes. :-)

    How I Discovered beBee and Why I loved It Since
    How I Discovered beBee and Why I loved It SinceI first discovered beBee because I was researching about homemade recipes for beeswax-based creams, balms and salves. My geekiness transcends beyond SEO, Content Marketing and IT-related stuff. The bipolarity of my life exists in the virtual...

    Pat, Good solid post and advice. I would add only to not make assumptions about people, but wait for them to reveal themselves in their interactions. I know quite a few with advanced degrees who would not waste their energies criticizing the way you write, but who will concentrate on the ideas and opinions you express. Not that they will always agree with you, but they will always read and respond with care. I know they are there because I count quite a few of them among my online friends. Cheers!

    I'm not sure what your moniker The 'Banged' Asian means. But just reading this post I can feel in your writing that you are a very nice person. A real human being, as I like to say. I don;t know who would take issue with your writing, but these people are generally described by me and some of my closest friend here in very unflattering terms. Keep up the good work, Pat. Writing is the best writing teacher.

    I enjoyed this, @Pat 🐝 Bagano. Genuine and straightforward. I love beBee's idea of brand building and authenticity. I feel being an ambassador is promoting a positive attitude about something you believe in. The reward is fulfillment.

    #9 Hi Sandra. Yeah, beeswax led me to beBee. Im a DIY chick. You should try beeswax anti aging cream. @Javier 🐝 beBee should start marketing beeswax too! Alright, my rather weird mind mind is on autopilot. Serendipity, yes!

    #7 Hey Paul "Pablo" Croubalian! I remember you were the one who introduced me to the bees! I didnt change my hair, just changed my profile picture to a more recent one. Thank you! So much for your support. I truly appreciate it.

    Pat, nice buzz. I come from a content marketing background too. I find it hilarious - in a good way - that you were actually researching beeswax! Serendipity perhaps? x

    Nice buzz, Pat. I like your points about the benefits of beBee. Remember, it's not always about quantity, but quality. I'm sharing this on several hives. Keep buzzing!

    "My first experience in beBee was being questioned for citations in the articles?" Don't bother answering. We are nearly 12 million people here. There are bound to be some poop-heads.

    Don't sweat it. If they get abusive, report them. There are some that are polite in public but nasty in private. I can't speak for Javier and Juan, but I don't think we need to tolerate that BS.

    Disagreement is fine and a natural extension of discussion. Abuse isn't.

    You can please some of the people some of the time but never all of the people all of the time. Don't even try.

    On another note, your English is fine to me.

    On yet another note. . . Did you change your hair?

    @Pat 🐝 Bagano I enjoy being part of your audience. Keep writing. I look forward to reading others content. One reason is it gives me Ideas to write about. The other is content sharing is a great marketing technique that is a "win win" for both parties.
