    How Do You Turn Up I walk into the room and I see them straight away - arms folded, slouched in their chair, looking out the window and if I'm really observant periodically rolling their eyes as if they have been sent to the Siberia of management development programs....

    #1 Like it @Brian McKenzie it seems very easy for authority to keep going along packaging turds in sparkly wrappers and selling them to the masses who seem to have the necessary funds to keep purchasing their crap. Only the few have the courage to find their truth and be prepared to invest in it to make progress.

    I could put a turd in a sparkly wrapper and sell the hell out of - I can't give away the truth for free. (yes, I have actually sold bags of straw, compost and manure - to faithful niche group, repeatedly)

    This is what life should not be without - connecting with others and developing meaningful relationships.

    I fully agree. We feel happy after a nice meeting. Those facial expressions are REAL. After spending time connecting this is the result. Happiness and a sense of fulfilment that we get when we spend time connecting ! Hopefully beBee is offering present and future relationships. I made a lot of friends here and I am willing to meet , discuss .... to enjoy life !

    Great buzz!! I think that we're losing our humanity. It is so sad, for example, to see how people in the bus back home don't even look at each other anymore. Some of them even push themselves without looking and they don't mind just because they're playing candy crush or looking at their phone.

    Great aspirations, Mark. Perhaps we should stop thinking of ourselves as participants in the 'human race' which ultimately nobody can win? ✖️ Why not share the 'human space'? ✔️
