Comments29/09/2016 #3 Jared 🐝 WieseI love this pic! Made me initially think of all that holds up a golf course, yet most never notice. Perhaps it is a view of what supports all green. Let's notice more! Makes me think of noticing nature one of the best ways to practice the Power of Now: https://www.bebee.com/producer/hive/eckhart-tolle so sharing this there!

Comments08/10/2016 #12 Anonymous#10 #11 Thankfulness is a practice that has two ways of enrichment. The one who receives it, has his self-confidence is increased, and the one who gives it, has double happiness. One, due to making happy someone who has deserved it, and two, because it gives you the feeling you have done the right thing.28/09/2016 #8 Harvey Lloyd@David Navarro Lopez, you caused me to reflect on those intersections of my life where others had great influence over my direction. I had several good teachers in school and my professional life. Unfortunately my younger years were filled with control issues that i have since dealt with, welllllll mostly dealt with. I have had the opportunity to thank some but not i would like too. Thanks for reminding me that where i am required a lot of people who took the time to share their wisdom.28/09/2016 #7 Anonymous#4 A Spanish wrtiter, Baltasar Gracian https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltasar_Graci%C3%A1n ,wrote

An opened heart like yours is able to find another one like Mr.@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. Thanks for sharing such good "vibrations" ..touched me my friend @David Navarro López Close27/09/2016 #5 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeAs I wake up and sleep chaotically I also today, so my glance of this buzz came by randomly. And what a surprise it proved to be.
I still remember my last time I lectured at the University of Petroleum and Minerals that students left me a bilingual message stating "if somebody leaves some people when they could have made him stay with them then shame on those people". I didn't stay, but for more than thirty years this story is still vivid in my memory.
I never took teaching as a full-time job since then. One reason is that teachers build futures, build knowledge, build hope and we deprive them of all. To sir with love is a mild version of what teachers suffer.
Dear @David Navarro López- as much as you saddened me by reviving the tragedy of teachers; equally you filled me with pleasure by looking at me as a teacher. But mind you, you have taught me a lot and that being grateful and thankful are the greatest signs of self-assurance and confidence. You are a teacher with vision, dignity and when we alternate roles of being a teacher and then a student we may build a lasting friendship because we both live the bitter conditions teachers unduly have to go through.
I say I am deeply moved by your buzz dear David and It is far greater to me than just a buzz. It shall keep buzzing the music of love in my heart.

Comments03/08/2016 #14 Robert BellMy dad was a hobby bee keeper so we could get honey while I was growing up, there is one other bee to consider, the drone bee.
A drone is a male bee that is the product of an unfertilized egg. Unlike the female worker bee, drones do not have stingers and do not participate in nectar and pollen gathering. A drone's primary role is to mate with a fertile queen.29/07/2016 #8 Mohammed SultanThree types of course ;creatures of obedience ,directed by the act of God and ruled by nature and a queen setting endeavor in continual motion.Some are traders and others like soldiers ,armed in their stings .Certainly we are not like her majesty the queen ,but may look like lazy yawning drones who can hardly be in reach of the queen.Thanks Margret Aranda ,MD ,PhD for your ultimate creativity.28/07/2016 #7 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#6 I love it!

- 27/07/2016Ladybugs are lovely. Europeans fondly name them 'lady beetles' or 'ladybird beetles.' With over 5,000 species in the world, there is much to be told as they are uncurled for us to swirl in their all being a 'girl.' Or are they? Ahh....
Poetically, there are 'two sides' of the 'ladybug' coin. On the one hand, many varieties are beloved by farmers, as the ladybugs consume aphids, the insects that destroy their crops. Laying literally hundreds of eggs at a time inside the aphid's abode, thee larvae are instantaneously hungry when 'hatched.' Whoah! Look out, aphids!
The 'eewie' ladybugs kill crops and the hearts of farmers, whose sweat turns to fret. Enter, the "Mexican bean" beetle, and the "squash" beetle. Poor farmers on their heels? What do they feel?
"Oh, but I don't have crops. I just have my own garden, and I live in the city, where it doesn't affect me." Oh, challenge be told, if I can be cold, as you must know that you are cold.
Go buy them in a box from your local nursery ~ and that would be in the "Refrigerator" Section. Then, watch your garden grow as you 'let them out' in the dusk, leaving you with untold roses to smell as sweet as musk.
And I won't say that I told you so.

Yes, I grew up going to my father's Company Trip with Lockheed aerospace. They rented out the EnTiRe Disneyland for all the employees once a year, and I couldn't sleep the night before. I grew up to learn that lift in my stomach just running past the gates of that great place, dancing with the characters and becoming one myself. Art, music, theatre, universal languages...and upon reading the history of his life, I was even more grateful that I remember seeing him on TV. He was warm, gentle, kind. We all cried the day that he died, and things were never the same again. But Disney's still here, and my children also grew up in remembrance of Grandpa, with the same memories of going once a year. At least. Additions of 🦁The Lion King🦁 theatrical performance stun and awe today. I'm glad his legacy lives on in the twinkle of our eyes.24/07/2016 #13 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#11 Very very sweet. I can smell the fragrances already, and you remind me of a song that Tuckerzone wrote for me when I was really injured in 2009 or so. He somehow caught me right on target, as he put words in his song that "I used to chase the wind, playing Catch Me if You Can."~ I'll shall enjoy writing a piece on that too, now! Hugs!24/07/2016 #12 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe Mary Poppins song "A Spoonful of Sugar" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLkp_Dx6VdI has a lot of amusing musing. It also mentions the honey bee in its lyrics
" ...The honey bee that fetch the nectar
From the flowers to the comb
Never tire of ever buzzing to and fro
Because they take a little nip
From every flower that they sip
And hence (And hence),
They find (They find)
Their task is not a grind..."
An article from the Disney Institute talks about the Power of Storytelling as a leadership trait, the article talks about a group of business people from Spain who spoke little or no English benefited from their visit to Walt Disney
Whether it is laughter being the best medicine or storytelling that moves us towards becoming great communicators, I totally agree that studying Walt Disney's methods and life is in itself, a highly educational experience.24/07/2016 #11 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#8 Dear @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD- your comment reminds me again of the movie "The Spanish Gardener" A sign in a garden read "don't cut the flowers". The wind blew the flowers off and the hero "Dirk Bogarde" looking at the sign and saying "but the wind can't read". So, when you write "I'll just go chase the wind while it blows...."

Comments26/07/2016 #58 Anees Zaidi#57 Dear @Praveen Raj Gullepalli another extremely beautiful and thoughtful composition. Amazing indeed. Many commentators showed interest about this paradise on earth and the ensuing conflict. You have marvellously described in your poem. Thanks for your fabulous contribution.26/07/2016 #57 Praveen Raj GullepalliSpectacular indeed, the land and the tree! Dear @Anees Zaidi, here are my thoughts, inspired by your words! About those that would take, out of selfishness, pride and prejudiced hate, that which is neither's property...the paradise on Earth that Kashmir is...
Take not that which belongs to
another; even if by own decree;
Find your own space under the sun,
and let them all just be!
Share what you need not,
and let the others be fed;
let not a single species on our planet,
go extinct or go dead.
This Earth belongs to no man,
but the wind, the creatures and the tree;
A Human is just a citizen,
meant to be footloose and fancy free!
Stake no claim over territory,
Let the world be without any measurable boundary;
The only things that divide us,
should be the hill, the dale, the glacier or the sea.25/07/2016 #56 Anees ZaidiDear @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD your profound intetest for the buzz, for Kashmir and it's people and your reading each comment with brilliant responses is amazing. The Chinar Tree is overwhelmed with your love and affection. It is preparing itself to speak more on Kashmir valley, it's people, flora and fauna, magnificent landscapes covered with snow and it's sufferings as well. As Chinar speaks language of breeze it needs some time to make it understandable by us. Thanks for sharing and spreading Chinar breeze widely.24/07/2016 #47 Anees Zaidi#46 such a profound comment @Lada 🏡 Prkic. I also wish the trees could speak and tell their sufferings as well at the hands of mankind. Thousand of trees are uprooted every all day around the word endangering even our own existence. As I mentioned in one of my comment below I am thinking on writing my next buzz on these lines. Thanks for your interest and time to read and comment.24/07/2016 #46 Lada 🏡 PrkicI almost missed this post. Like @Sara Jacobovici said with her post title: “So many posts, so little time”.
What a lovely post, @Anees Zaidi, and a powerful message too. You gave a Cinar tree your voice, but just imagine if trees could talk, we would have heard such moving testimonies of the suffering of the nations throughout the history. Like Cinar trees in the Kashmir Valley that witnessed the deadly showings, and Olive trees in the Middle East could tell us tremendous stories about bloody history in this cradle of civilisation.
We would have heard similar stories all over the world, since the history of mankind is a history of conflicts.24/07/2016 #44 Anees Zaidi#43 Dear brother @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I am very much here but holding my head with my both hands. I am crying for paucity of time seeking @Milos Djukic help on fractal and multi fractal time series and this amazing lady our freind @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD has read each comment on my post and has herself commenting upon as well.

If a surgical procedure is performed to free her of the pain of squeezing out of the cocoon, her lungs will not be squeezed of their water, and her resulting spongy wet lungs will cause her to die from suffocation.

What a grand teacher you are, to have a student inspired to excel in front of your eyes. Telepathy..yes, I believe in that. Pheromones, twin women having babies at precisely the same time...all these things are in the Great Mystery and Rhyme of life. #3 Ahh! "The Chinar Smile" indeed!

Close20/07/2016 #14 Anees Zaidi#9 Dear brother @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee the good thing about a 'broken heart' is it has the natural healing capability. It just needs some 'quite time' to absorb the 'attack' and recover the 'wound'. As it is said 'The time heals all wounds'. However, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy differs “It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.” Can we recover the wound through 'forgiveness'? Forgiveness gives 'inner peace'. Can we amend our 'grievance story' to a 'learning story' through 'forgiveness'? I am happy you liked 'The Window of My Truth'. Many thanks for opening it on many fields.20/07/2016 #12 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDStunningly beautiful in both solstice and harmony, the past and the present.

Comments17/07/2016 #12 Chas ✌️ Wyatt" To students and lovers of books, the word library possesses a charm which scarcely any other can claim; and there are few associations so pleasant as those excited by it. To them it means a place where one may withdraw from the hurry and bustle of every-day life, from the cares of commerce and the strife of politics, and hold communion with the saints and heroes of the past; a place where the good and true men of bygone ages, being dead, yet speak, and reprove the vanity and littleness of our lives, where they may excite us to noble deeds, may cheer and console us in defeat, may teach us magnanimity in victory.... There we may listen to "the fairy tales of science," or to the voices of the poets singing their undying songs.
Every man should have a library. The works of the grandest masters of literature may now be procured at prices that place them within the reach almost of the very poorest, and we may all put Parnassian singing birds into our chambers to cheer us with the sweetness of their songs." ~William E.A. Axon, October 1867.17/07/2016 #9 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAThank you @Sara Jacobovici for re-posting @CityVP 🐝 Manjit's comment re libraries. Over the years, when I've been transferred and found myself in unique and different cities, I have gone - first - to the library to get a library card. Personally, I feel I'm connecting with the authors contained within it since I'm surrounded by them. Plus I'm gathering inspiration - something we don't usually receive from sites like Wikipedia; altho that's a fabulous way to allow others to share valuable information. Also, very important, I am freely educating myself; discovering information, facts and history I would not have been exposed to or discovered in college or throughout my life. I can only imagine the invaluable information I'd discover in National Library of Israel, in Jerusalem. No doubt I could spend days there!16/07/2016 #8 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#7 Dear Deb, the times when I feel most connected is ironically with lurkers.

I not only sense them but sometimes I get a glimpse of them. Yesterday a woman from Venezuela https://www.bebee.com/bee/annick-betancourt-0bFkgc who was not following anyone but had one follower checked out my profile, that simple act can evoke a curiosity in me. It was enough for me to determine that she is starting her career life out in municipal and urban/architect areas and she works in the Capital District of Caracas. This leads me to see a tourist view https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCky7_3nK0E while mindful that Venezuela has deep economic problems outlined by a couple of other bees.. Then there is someone who I follow called Javier Benitez Toyos and I marvel at his paintings https://www.bebee.com/bee/javier-benitez-toyos?t=posts while he makes his living as a customer service representative, and I see humility in that man but even more as talent. Both Annick and Javier are quiet people getting on with their business, and for a brief moment we are ships that pass each other on the ocean. There is a beauty in that which I cannot describe but I do appreciate. Close16/07/2016 #7 Deb Lange#2 I agree with you @CityVP Manjit - so much information, inundated with blasts. Sometimes I feel like not blasting out my thoughts. I love it when I share them and they do connect with someone and we end up having a conversation online across the world. This is exciting, stimulating and takes my thinking deeper. I am ok if I share something and it does not settle anywhere. It is the same in conversation. Sometimes we say things and people feel connected and a conversation continues. Sometimes we say something and there is no connection and the conversation goes nowhere. I sense BeBee is a place where thoughts are read and comments are made to pursue thinking in many directions. Learning to fly with our imaginations and stay grounded in our physical reality is more to do with being and sensing, than just occupying space, as you say.15/07/2016 #2 CityVP 🐝 ManjitFirst of all thank you Sara the picture from the Daily Mail encapsulates this totally. What I would like to dedicate this page to is the institution of the public library and my hope is that people on BeBee recognize that meatspace of public libraries is the Internet where we see people and this is not an institution which is redundant because of the virtual space, but preceded the virtual space. Where I live the municipal government has provided us with a rich network of libraries, but across the world libraries are facing greater challenges. The appeal from New York is just an example https://www.nypl.org/support
From an Isreal point of view - I found a rich article about "Libraries and Librarianship in Israel" written by Snunith Shoham and while few people are going to read a 51 page PDF it contains enough value simply by browsing through to reveal the complexity, history and value of libraries in all the forms they take. http://www.ifla.org/files/assets/hq/publications/ifla-journal/archive/jour2603.pdf Her LinkedIn page is at https://il.linkedin.com/in/snunith-shoham-4063a138 When we view this in a larger dimension I call this viewing the greater ecology.
This same greater ecology is what I am trying to get my college club members to see but it is not a natural shift, people are so inundated with existing flows of information that they are occupied by it - and in this I view the word OCCUPATION. We cannot occupy ourselves if we want to see life in those spaces i.e. the classic difference between making a living and making a life. Now we can easily transpose this and say we can do both, but as the quote in the following article says, there is a great difference between DOINGNESS and BEINGNESS and if BeBee is the latter then what a great step forward that will be. I pray that it bee. http://www.lifehack.org/articles/work/why-you-should-making-life-instead-making-living-2.html
- 13/06/2016My Fitness for Life- I believe some buzzes we write truly reflect who we are and how we think and act. What are the steering values in our lives? They act as the true profiles of our authentic identity. The linked post, which I wrote few months ago, introduces my reality to the beBee community.Fitness for Lifewww.linkedin.com The hundreds of passionate messages I received from my colleagues on LinkedIn congratulating me on the occasion of my birthday (today) prompted me to thank them all in a post. I hope every one of...
Comments13/06/2016 #14 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#11 Dear @Anees Zaidi- a comment so subliming is the biggest reward I may dream of. I strongly believe if we care for people they shall care for me one day. Hidden experiences are of no use; sharing them might help one person to solve a problem. Information and turning it into knowledge is a photosynthesis conversion. It needs light to happen. If I share I do for I have nothing to hide. To the contrary, reading a great comment like yours is the proof I am on the right path.13/06/2016 #11 Anees Zaidi@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee what a great 'soul' you are. I can see 'Ali Anani' in person in this post with his outstanding wisdom that illuminates path for others, his tender heart that always beats for others and his caring mind that always thinks for others. Dr. Ali, let others to use your 'private road' to reach their 'home' is an act of humility, generosity and kindness of the greatest order. Climbing a mountain peak, putting one hand on the anchor, extending the other hand to support other climbers in their journey and maintaining the balance - I see you doing this on daily basis. Rarely people do this and you are that rare 'gem' doing this in perfect harmony. May Almighty keep you in good health and give you a long life.13/06/2016 #1 Lisa 🐝 GallagherI remember this post @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and I wrote: "A refreshing read Ali Anani, PhD, so great that your fitness ( what a perfect term) is to 'fertilize' others. Helping others to learn and grow with the wisdom you have to share!" I also believe if we keep an open mind to what surrounds us, we can choose to continue to be part of that environment or jog off to find one that is more conducive. Even if that means just changing our routine and going for a drive with my camera. I never know where I may end up and the photos I will bring back with me!
