    "There's sunshine in the heart of me,
    My blood sings in the breeze;
    The mountains are a part of me,
    I'm fellow to the trees."
    ~Robert W. Service (1874–1958), "A Rolling Stone," 1912.

    #6 @David B. Grinberg "worker bees show admirable teamwork in building their hives" versus, the prevailing "me, me'me" shadow side of human nature presenting itself in much social media. - great observation David. I am feeling increasingly enriched using nature metaphors, it is a constant reminder that we are nature. That has inspired me to remember the great work of Janine Benyus and Biomimicry - I will write a post! Thanks David.

    Kudos for a very buzz-worthy read @Deb Lange. In addition to the fundamental beauty of nature exemplified by bees, I would also point out that bees are hard workers (worker bees) and show admirable teamwork and selfless fortitude in building their hives.
    Thus, in a social media environment that is too often self-focused with a "me, me, me" feel, it's great to be part of a social platform that prides itself on more profound and praiseworthy principles. The buzz is growing louder!

    I love the movie and I love the message. As well as the idea of sacred economics. One can argue that it´s easily possible to leave money society and live autarkic somewhere where it´s allowed or if we can afford to buy our own land.

    Thank you for sharing this video and it´s important message.

    Charles Eisenstein accepts gifts in form of PayPal payments and credit card payments on his website. One-time or recurring. It´s not as easy as it seems.

    Interesting video @Chas Wyatt, finally had a chance to watch. It does have a lot of conspiracy theories, I remember watching a few about the Rothschilds before. But the message that's conveyed about those who have too much power and our planet is spot on. Thanks for sharing!

    Pinch of salt. Far fetched conspiracy theories suggesting a global domination agenda instigated by the Rockefellers, Carnegies and Rothschilds. That said, I do agree with some of the prognosis. The Fed has too much power/we need to get off a centralised grid/own our own water etc.

    Interesting video Chas. I watched about an hour of it last night before I had to close my eyes. This is such an important message and one we should all heed. We have one planet, just one on which we can survive, for now. Why some don't get that is beyond me.

    Forever young, indeed, @Pascal Derrien. I always say that age is just a number anyway. I often yearn to go back to the good 'ole days of yore. My best times in that age range occurred during my college days. However, I still keep in touch with a friend from my hometown with whom I grew up and went to high school. If I only knew back then what I know now...he said, waxing nostalgic.

    Oh dear, I only got to FNAC in the summers of 1989 and 90, @Pascal Derrien - But I was part of the hip hop crowd. There would always be some folks at the the base of the Tour Montparnasse with boom boxes and I'd drop by in the evenings with my Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Big Daddy Kane and Eric B and Rakim cassette tapes. Now I am lost in nostalgia....

    Man, this is just awesome @Pascal Derrien. There are so many parts and pieces to this that, as I read it, I know we lived a similar youth in ways. Different, sure, I was in rural farm country, you were in an urban center, yet, this resonates. The small band of individuals, the late nights, pooling cash for a twelve box, the music. We grew up at the same time, listened to the same music, had similar hair styles :-), yet at the time, there was an ocean between us. The world has gotten smaller since then. I suspect, had we been in the same area, we may have met much earlier in life. I still run into members of the small crew I hung with back in the day, and to your point, we pick-up right where we left-off, even though, sometimes, we left-off over 20 years ago. We pool a little cash, grab a beer, and share some stories. Forever young indeed, after all age is only a number! I love the post my friend, well done and thanks for the memories! Rock on Brother!

    Youth isn't wasted on the young, as long as you can remember it. I recently attended my 40th high school reunion and it was if time had stood still, except for our physical appearances. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Loved your story here @Pascal Derrien. "No matter what was your background all our dreams, frustrations and appetite for life would converge to his railway station every Saturday." Sometimes I long to meet all my school friends of years ago. Some I've found on FB. Many not. Some easier to meet, others not so. I suppose we all have our lives to live, families to take care of and jobs to look after. Reading this also reminds me that inside all of us, there is a young boy/young girl who just wants to have a bit of fun, make connections and have a good day out. Thanks for posting this.

    @Pascal Derrien - such a cool story! I appreciate this look into your 'youth' as it brings rise to thoughts of my own 'carefree', fun and high spirited days! After years of being the responsible adult, I'm working my way back to those 'high spirited' days - perhaps in an even more conscious way - because like you, I am realizing "that no matter how many years have passed we are forever young" - and age is just a number!

She is a TBI Survivor and has worked hard since her accident to meet her dreams. You helped me in that journey, and in so doing also made me look like a rockstar. She said she had never heard of him.

    So great to hear of lasting friendships made on here @Gary Sharpe. I'm not sure if I follow Angus or Massimo, I need to find them. I love the friendships I've made too and honestly if I end up doing some type of business I feel much more comfortable knowing the person or persons first when it comes to online communications. I'm an extrovert so maybe that's why I enjoy meeting new people and if something transpires thats secondary for me. As for @Deb Helfrich, she is a bright light and had it not been for her, I would not have met so many wonderful people- yourself included! I am so happy for you both. You two are proof that real love is possible even from a distance, a long one at that!

    Gary, your use of "resonating" in the above got me thinking back to my uni days - sound waves and musical instruments, etc. According to the Physics Classroom ( http://www.physicsclassroom.com/class/sound/Lesson-5/Resonance ) 'Resonance' is defined as "when one object, vibrating at the same natural frequency of a second object, forces that second object into vibrational motion". I postulate then, that if we think of ourselves as objects (for purposes of this argument only) it follows that, when two people stimulate each other, a special effect is achieved, resulting in meaningful sounds being emanated. Hence, physics predicts that people who are sympathetic towards each other, stimulate each other, resulting in spontaneity. Who'd have thought it?
    I enjoyed reading your post, Gary, and (if you'll excuse the dad joke) I got a great 'buzz' out of it. 🐝 🐝 🐝

    #156 Good question, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian.

    Two ideas...

    1) It is really the principal of private vs. public conversations that I was protecting. It's not just secrets that are best kept private. It's also applicable where you just want to speak frankly (franchement, pun intended) without an audience. An example of the way that I sometimes contact people privately (and like a few people have done so for me) with proofreading and editing suggestions. That's no great secret, but it's nobody else's business whether or not I want to offer suggestions, or whether someone else wants to receive them.

    2) Some people assume that speaking or writing in multiple languages is a way of showing off, so I hesitate to do so. Especially with French, which has it's own reputation for exceptionalism. Now when I use my broken Spanish, on the other hand, doesn't feel like showing off, because I speak Spanish so poorly!

    #152 LOL, I live in Québec and your written French is better than mine, @Charles David Upchurch. Of course, Larousse said our French is but a dialect. Websters said the same about our English.

    Languages are alive. They evolve, they grow. I seem to remember reading somewhere that the King of England, when he first saw Westminster (I think), called it "Pompous, superficial, and artificial." Those words used to be compliments. Even today, things are in flux. It's good to be "The Shit." It's bad to be "shit."

    Hospitality is not just a custom, it is a living-breathing organism there. I know that every country boasts of it’s warm welcome for guests, but in beBee, the guest is “God-sent” and is treated as such. Hospitality is extended to strangers, it is boundless and it is unconditional.#141

    Extremely interesting article about Bees, agriculture, their history and this- I never heard about Apitherapy until this article, "in the first months of 2013, it was discovered that, when combined with a nanoparticle solution so as to not harm healthy cells as well, melittin kills the HIV virus and circulates through the body without causing any harm. Because the HIV virus is smaller than normal human cells, the particle solution lets venom pass over healthy cells and only target viruses. " That's awesome!

    Just as awkward as running to one's ride from the train station and suddenly find a startled stranger looking at you. "Wrong car! Sorry" is all I can say, but it is still like invading someone else's space. As a stranger I would jump to Purnima's table any day of the year - for the one thing we sure know how to do, is have a mighty laugh. Those that laugh together don't have to eat together.

    The Universe: So Many Questions Without Answers
    The Universe: So Many Questions Without AnswersI have been doing a lot of thinking lately. Say what... she thinks?! Ok, all kidding aside, my brain is stuck on a few things after losing mom in January. I am not a religious person but I am a spiritual person.  The way my mom passed has me...

    #25 Hi @ptharso castro, we all have our own belief system and there is nothing wrong with that- I think we can all learn from others even if their belief system is different than ours. I enjoyed your slideshow and I would suggest that others click on your link if they are evolutionists, a lot of great/interesting info there. Thanks for your comment!

    #24 Hi @Javier beBee, you're so correct, we do only have one life and you reminded me of a very good point- Do what makes you happy and respect others. Respecting others and even doing things to make others happy makes me feel very happy. Another great lesson my mom taught us, unconditional love. I'm very proud to say I grew up in a family that stressed the importance of caring about others as much as we care for ourselves. Thanks so much for your comment!

    #23 Hi @Ken Boddie, We truly were blessed as a family to be with my mom and each other when she passed. We are blessed that my mom spent a lifetime making sure that we were able to resolve our differences with each other and never go to bed angry. We do have a lot to be thankful for and forever grateful for. I love the poem you posted by Mary Frye, just beautiful- thank you!!

    All still do not understand why we are here. I believe that Consciousness is a tiny part of the Universe. But I do not believe in supernatural. We're just part of the evolution of life and nothing else! I wrote this text for understand my ideas. http://pt.slideshare.net/ptharso/the-origin-of-the-universe-and-the-essential-consciousness

    Nice words @Lisa Gallagher. Enjoy life as it comes. Enjoy your family. Enjoy every moment. It is so sad when somebody we love goes out from this world !! We suffer because we are use to their presence. I think only thing we can do is just caring our families and people we love, and just enjoy every second of our lifes. We have only one life ( known one ) and do what you make you happy respecting the other lifes ! Have a great Sunday !

    You have obviously touched a lot of people @Lisa Gallagher with this beautifully written post, which raises more questions than answers. I can't provide you with solutions or any remedy for your troubled thoughts, but I suggest that you might want to take comfort in the fact that your family all had a chance to make their peace with your mum, and that she went quietly with you all beside her. That is much more than many of us will have when our time comes. I will, however, leave you with this touching poem by Mary Frye.
    "Do not stand at my grave and weep;
    I am not there. I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there, I did not die." 🕊

    Life is about sharing and is based on this concept to be worthy. Sharing changes in form. It goes from mother-baby form: one giving to one taking to become both give and take. Somebody continue to live in the form (habit) of taking, but not sharing. @Lisa Gallagher- I love this post

    I like your sense of humor and the reflection of it in your writing @Paul Walters. Certainly I don't think that likes matter anymore, if they even mattered in the first place. Now people go around giving likes just bye looking at the profile picture and since it's a person they like, they click like and don't even notice what the person shared. The change of emoticons on FB may change a little bit this last problem, but still... it doesn't erases it.

    Are we getting captivated with more ‘likes’ and living with idle fancies and getting dragged in annoying lifestyles? Oftentimes, the drift of social media and users’ attitudes are so typical that it seems users are living to their hallucinations and whimsical narrations in a virtual world.

    Verily, social media is the fulcrum in building relationships in today’s world! Though, it's easy to use 'social media' for diverse purposes, but, when it is used in a wrong manner, then the outcome may be sheer 'social mayhem', and with the clutter effect of unplanned activities and postings, it's just waste of time.

    Getting hooked up on the social media has to be appropriate, inspiring, meaningful and productive. Without these ingredients, making sheer exposures through vain content and impressive pictures is waste of time and energy. :)

    @Paul Walters, you are a hard man, indeed, no doubt emotionally stunted by uncontrolled intellectual development. A definite handicap in this age of social media. However, your words pass beyond the pale, when you denigrate the "banal picture[s] of their pet sleeping in a bucket." For such denigration is just plain mean, not to mention that when it comes to indications of evolutionary level on social media, the photos to which you refer stand as the Enlightenment does to the works of Piltdown Man. (Waiting to see how many recognize the irony of this last remark.) Nevertheless, a good piece, with both an undercurrent of insight and one of humor. Cheers!

    I believe your experiences have taught you well because you own them. Your article reflects you're in control - "I believe I can master it as I have mastered many skills in my life." You will be noticed because you are noticed now, as a good writer. Good luck in your journey. and as @Kevin Pashuk stated "Work will come to the diligent".

    I feel like I'm eavesdropping on your self reflections @Phillip Hubbell. I fully agree that one gets pigeonholed into a category... "Hey the projector doesn't work! Call Kevin!" even though you have many other facets. I see you as a writer who does other things rather than someone who does things and writes on the side. I'm an avid photographer and musician, but I would starve if that's all I do. You sound very self aware. Keep pressing on my friend. Work will come to the diligent.

    Very interesting @Phillip Hubbell. Your writing kept me engaged till I finished it. Most of the time we are not identified with our real self. We are know with the cap we wear. Our cap becomes our identity. This is a tragic story in interpersonal relationship.
