Comments02/12/2016 #89 Anonymous#88 Yes @Franci Eugenia Hoffman, LePichon touches the core of a truth we may be afraid to admit or not yet ready to accept when he says human beings "are not adults in full possession of their means" and our fragility is at the "heart of humanity". You are right to say our understanding of these truths will help us to understand ourselves and others. I appreciate your feedback and the support in sharing.02/12/2016 #88 Franci Eugenia Hoffman“Human people are not adults in full possession of their means.” is a powerful statement in a quiet way. "The fragility is the essence of men and women, and it is at the heart of humanity. And once you realize that, you accept your own fragility." is important to heed because once we come to terms with ourselves, we can understand suffering within others and ourselves.02/12/2016 #87 Anonymous#85 Yes @Sarah Elkins, LePichon is truly an "'exceptional human being". Quite relevant & insightful that you recognize AI as a phenomenon that could make us realize the value in all that it means to be human. I love that insight! Thanks so much for this idea contribution and for your positive feedback.02/12/2016 #85 Sarah ElkinsWeak. Fragile. Vulnerable. Those words used to be criticism and insults. But now, as we humans start to consider what makes us human in relation to the very real, very near potential of AI, the values in those words are changing. I recognized the name, Le Pichon, from studying plate tectonics with our sons during Earth science classes in school. I had no idea what else made him such an exceptional human being. Thank you, @Irene Hackett, for bringing this story to beBee.25/10/2016 #75 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#74 Nature is telling us...through the birds...the bees...the trees...the fractals...the forms...etc...of the interdependence that is essential for both survival and evolution. Any development outside the frameworks of interdependence could only be called one thing - Cancer.25/10/2016 #73 Anonymous#71 Yes, that is an interesting title, especially for a young adult book! Fear is an important & necessary emotion - it prepares us, strengthens us in confronting danger. Issues can develop when we are imagining danger where there is no real threat before us, but the thought that there is!24/10/2016 #72 Harvey Lloyd#67 @Irene Hackett These styled discussions always make me think of musical chairs. Everyone is focused on the music and the empty chair that is closest to them. Our society, through systems, have initiated and nearly perfected, the game of musical chairs. We focus on the media or social alignment, music and our ability to seek success and joy, the chair.
Neither of these goals are bad, it's the game. I don't play within that circus. I don't require the music or reflection of media to find my peace and joy. I will have to say, a lounge chair and a umbrella drink is required to watch the game from a distance:)
"Oneness" i don't believe is the same as interdependence. This may be splitting hairs, but interdependence requires me to understand your journey and how we might benefit from each other. Oneness means that i need to not only share the journey but also belief systems. In this you and i can't be one. This journey of oneness is reserved for our spouses. I can share a portion of others journeys and each can benefit for the time.
Our answer for interdependence is a homogenized viewpoint that i feel is ground zero for some of our cultural issues. We are requesting oneness in our belief systems when this is next to impossible. We have all refined our systems from our perspectives and the journey has showed us wisdom. In this we are each unique, not one. We can all share a portion of a journey over time but we can't all live in a journey that has been homogenized.

Comments29/11/2016 #5 Renée Cormier 🐝#4 #2 On a personal note, I work out five days a week and I go to the gym as early as I can. For me, the key to being able to commit to regular exercise is to get my gym clothes on before I eat my breakfast and don't get into email or writing or anything else before I work out. It may seem like too much for people to work out 5 days a week, but I know that if I commit to 3 days, I will get lazy and not go at all. I can't have too many days off in a row. I have to treat it like it is part of my regular work day. The other thing I do is challenge my muscles. When I first started, just being in the gym was a challenge, so I only did what I could do consistently. Now that I am into it, I challenge myself and because I do that, I can see changes in my shape and muscles. That in itself motivates me to keep going and not lose anything I've worked so hard for. In the old days, I used to work out 3 days a week, and I never really saw results. Now that I go more often, I see the difference. I also have a back up plan in case there is a snow storm or a commitment that interferes with my regular gym time. I have exercises that I can do at home so that there is no excuse ever.
My experience is that people make time for things that are important to them. That is where adjusting your values comes in. I value my work out time because it keeps me sane (I work alone a lot and need to get out). Working out also keeps me fit, makes me feel good and keeps me healthy. All great reasons to choose to be fit. When I think of the alternative, I know I would hate every day of my life watching my belly get fatter, never seeing people, feeling lethargic and eventually losing my good health. Who wants that?29/11/2016 #3 Paul Kearley 🐝#1 ah yes my old friend status quo. The glue that keeps us in the sameness canoe. I did a keynote last week on "the ART of Intentional living, and the premise was simply this: The reward has to weigh more than the effort... Therin lies the problem with commitment... the end does not, in their opinion match what they have to do or give up. Thank you so much for commenting for @Renée Cormier 🐝.28/11/2016 #2 Sarah Elkins"On my birthday in two months." Oh dear. Like people who wait until January 1 to start working out, or people who wait until Valentine's Day to share their love, people who make future dates to start something not only avoid starting, they avoid the guilty feelings of not following through. It's sad. Good reminder, @Paul Kearley 🐝.28/11/2016 #1 Renée Cormier 🐝Good timing, Paul. I just posted a blog on the battle between change and sameness. Your friend needs to adjust her personal values and philosophy and be religious about her commitment if she wants to change her fitness level at all. I'm sure you know that, though. :)

Comments28/11/2016 #5 Mohammed Sultan@John Whitehead.Thanks for sharing your great experience.The scenario of working relationship in Saudi Arabia is going to change from employee basis relationship to sharing information.The traditional hierarchical relationship which is based on -What can I do for you to help yo do your job? will change to
a relationship based on- who in the organization depends on me and for what information? leadership model ,then, will change from being people-oriented to being interest- oriented.The organization in Saudi Arabia is an organization of specialists from different perspectives and backgrounds connected together with a "common interest".The leadership challenge facing this sort of an information- based organization will be in promoting people to top- management levels rather than developing rewards and recognition only .On the other hand,Young Sauidis will not be satisfied to be dictated by any leadership model accepted by expatriates or dictated by order and control or forced to play on the conservatives playground on which recognition and rewards are decided based on their position on a specialist ladder rather than a real corporate ladder.For any leader embracing change in Saudi Arabia ,he must be ready for a dislocation in the workplace that may force them to alter everything including their double-ladders.28/11/2016 #4 Bekka PrideauxA timely reminder that if you don't understand the foundational principle of treating others how you want to be treated it is very hard to build any further leadership capability. I think this will help me with a client I am currently working with and coaching - thank you28/11/2016 #3 Mohammed A. JawadThanks for this insightful post.
It's worth mentioning that there are countless leadership traits that can be listed, but of all, I presume that excellent character ranks on the top. Without right behavior, what's the use of authority, credentials, expertise or intellect?28/11/2016 #2 Donna-Luisa Eversley@John Whitehead ...leaders have the privilege of guiding others and hopefully they will inspire followers. You ate correct, it's more about the people who follow when it comes to the subject of training leaders. I think this is not given sufficient emphasis when helping leaders.

Above all do this with humility. Ever saw a photo of Allan Gray? A famous advocate being in the news daily coaches a primary school rugby team and helps in the church on Sundays. The late Anton Rupert lived in an ugly house without a garage. Spent hours just talking to his employees.02/12/2016 #23 Campbell PriceInteresting post Gert. The four that I know of all needed to leave South Africa to achieve global success. How often do they go back? For Ivan, I suspect he would see his identity more in relation to the cultural stereotype you describe, with the wife can now buy herself a handbag comment. Oscar Pistorius could be explored as an example of a fallen hero. He is also a discussion point for the biggest problem in an otherwise great country. Which I refer to in my first post/ story on beBee.28/11/2016 #20 Gert Scholtz@Stephane Fenner 🐝 Thanks for reading and stopping by Stephane. If I may belabour the SA theme, but it my be of interest to you that the tennis hero Roger Federer's mother was South African. More than that, she was once a pupil at school of my mother, who was a teacher. Small world!28/11/2016 #18 Stephane Fenner 🐝The word hero depends on one's interpretation. I personally prefer saying I have inspiring characters. This choice comes from the fact that my interpretation of a hero could sound like someone unreal... Elon Musk and others are definitely inspiring.
Thank you @Gert Scholtz for starting a very interesting debate!28/11/2016 #17 Donna-Luisa EversleyI still have heroes... Maybe we need to have them because they gives us hope, some incredible resilence to inspire, and look to. My baddest superhero is Jesus... Because I believe and he delivers.
Whatever ones choice , it's great having heroes. Thanks @Gert Scholtz your examples are great.27/11/2016 #14 CityVP ManjitThe book I have in my home is special because it is alive every time I open it. I purchased it at Oliver Tambo Airport on the way back home and it is The Long Walk To Freedom. Yes, Nelson Mandela may not be alive now, but that book serves as a living reminder that the heroic does not have to be a human being, but the light of that human being that still remains with us. It is not just what the book is about, but also where I purchased it from - an airport named after another of South Africa's great heroes.27/11/2016 #13 Emilia M. LudovinoWonderful reading for a Sunday morning, dear @Gert Scholtz. You're right in being proud of your SA heroes as they stand for a great role model, not only for the South African youth but, also for the youth of other African countries. Spiderman was my hero ... don't even know I survived without injuries to my Spiderman obsession, as I was always jumping walls, trees, rooftops. Thanks for this time traveling moment :). Have a beautiful sunday!26/11/2016 #4 Aurorasa SimaThank you for sharing that list. Maybe I´m missing a gene or something. I don´t think I have heroes. Or ever had. I was especially happy to find Charlize Theron on your list. When someone is as beautiful as she, some have trouble seeing the inner values. I too think she´s great.
I love to be able to learn about your values from looking at the traits of the people who made it to your list.

Comments25/11/2016 #9 Alexandra GalvizWhat a great post! Loved the part on respect the pain. I think that sometimes you need to sit with it for a bit in order to be comfortable to walk through it and really get it off our chest. If not we risk, as you say going into denial or just brushing it off. Thanks for your insights!25/11/2016 #5 Emilia M. Ludovino#3 Thank you @Robert Cormack for taking your time to read it and share your insights with us. I wholehearted agree with you that the biggest problem of people that are stuck in a martyr state is NOT letting go pain. Maybe they don't know how to do it, or are afraid of asking for help or they just choose to cling in that martyr state because they don't know better. Have a blessed day!25/11/2016 #3 Robert CormackAs we grow older (and experience a vast multitude of happiness, pain and sorrow) we're always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Call it "gun shy," but we're always wondering when happiness will end and the shit storm will start. It's one thing to embrace pain, but it's another to never let go. Psychiatrists call this the "martyr state" and people can live their whole lives like this. They find a comfort level "waiting for the other shoe to drop." What separates us from other animals (for good or bad) is we can understand pain. We can do something about it. That's part of our evolution. I think our biggest problem is NOT letting go of pain. It creates long periods of distress (and also wars, by the way). At some point, we have to leave the "martyr state." That's really what separates us from other animals.

Enjoy the meditation many have said it has aided in making great leaps in personal realization and self discovery. I myself have been using this particular one for several years after studying many other forms.24/11/2016 #10 Emily Forget (Newbee!)#4 Hi Jared! Thanks for your comment! I am too curious about this Miracle Morning, it sounds wonderful. You should most definitely try to use the App more... at least daily I would suggest, even for 5-10 minutes to start.. I know it sounds like a lot, but you will most likely start to enjoy it so it becomes a pleasure. Like going in and out of a Jacuzzi on a cold day.... soooooooo amazzzzzing. I find that now, I get the urge to meditate more than once a day, but time and daily duties restricts me. In a perfect world, I suppose! ;-)24/11/2016 #6 Emily Forget (Newbee!)#2 Hey Max! Those are awesome mantras, love it! When you say "I use this meditation", do you mean the Calm App specifically? Allowing space for everything that comes up during meditation is so important. Pema Chodron once said, "Sticking with uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic - this is the spiritual path." Thank you for commenting!!! :-)24/11/2016 #2 Max CarterI use this meditation and have given it to thousands I have worked with.
Say "I let got of everything"
Repeat these words until your body takes over the breathing and then tel yourself.
"I go into the void of my mind to learn what I need to know right now."
This creates a calm space for you to be shown things that will aid you in dealing with life better and in less stressful ways getting the guidance form within.
