- Producer16/10/2016Parasitic ThoughtsInitially, I intended to write this buzz on cellular times as @Sara Jacobovici urged me to do so. However; during the thinking of the flow of ideas I found myself attracted to other aspects of our lives and I was dragged into writing this buzz...
Comments19/10/2016 #40 Anees ZaidiHarvey Lloyd, trees do respond to trauma in their chemical communication. Sage brush in North America and willow & oak trees in Europe 'warn' their neighbors of insects attacks by emitting pheromones, which raises the production of bitter tannins and other predator-deterrent chemicals in nearby plants. Similar happens with Mopane trees in Africa where the predators are the elephants.
I agree with you Dr. @Ali Anani we may take many lessons from the plants. We need to love them and adapt them.19/10/2016 #39 Anees ZaidiDear brother @Ali Anani, your scholarly writings are always great stimuli for us to learn new things, know more and sail in new waters. During my recent holiday break I had the chance to lay my hand on Richard Mabey's authoritative and very interesting book 'The Cabaret of Plants'. The book is globe-trotting exploration of the relationship between humans and the kingdom plants. The learned author shows how flowers, trees, and plants have been central to human experience. While I still have to cover the book's 400 pages the chapter that attracted me the most is 'Plant Intelligence'. Exploring the history of the sensitive plant 'Mimosa pudica', attempting to find satisfactory explanation as to why the sensitive plant shuts its leaves in a dramatic fashion on being touched, Mabey takes his readers to an interesting experiment done as recent as 2013 by Australian ecologist Monica Gagliano.
Gagliano did 'habituation' experiment on sensitive plants (repeated dropping on plants from a height of six inches every five seconds. Each training session involved sixty drops). While in the beginning of the experiment all the plants shut their leaves in thner. But some started to reopen after only four or five drops in subsequent sessions. Gagliano repeated the experiment, using the same 'trained plant', after one week and then one month. Again they ignored the drop stimulus, suggesting they had 'remembered' what they had learned. Surprisingly, the Bees, in similar experiments, forget what they have learned in forty-eight hours. It is astonishing how a plant, without any organ comparable to brain, could store or process memories.17/10/2016 #36 Ali Anani#35 I am preparing a buzz on plants movement and including some examples that you mentioned in your rich comment @Praveen Raj Gullepalli. I shall also mention some of the work Indian scientists did. The issue of what stimulates plants and how they respond just shows how less we know than some plants. Your lovely comments motivates me to continue with this journey and I am truly grateful to you.17/10/2016 #35 Praveen Raj GullepalliAnother beautiful buzz Dear @Ali Anani I read somewhere that negative thoughts and feelings manifest as disease, and I have been looking for a book that connects emotion and attitude to a specific disease, for long! I had mentioned Dr.Bose's earlier to you Sir...Dr. Jagadish Chandra Bose..."His major contribution in the field of biophysics was the demonstration of the electrical nature of the conduction of various stimuli (e.g., wounds, chemical agents) in plants, which were earlier thought to be of a chemical nature. These claims were later proven experimentally. He was also the first to study the action of microwaves in plant tissues and corresponding changes in the cell membrane potential. He researched the mechanism of the seasonal effect on plants, the effect of chemical inhibitors on plant stimuli and the effect of temperature. From the analysis of the variation of the cell membrane potential of plants under different circumstances, he hypothesised that plants can "feel pain, understand affection etc."16/10/2016 #30 Ali Anani@Deb Helfrich-surely this segment of your comment is a nugget of wisdom "The more we can learn to trust our bodies the better off we may be. Then we can focus on responding to our environment rather than trying to control it". You are very correct. The mentality of control is still prevailing. We need to change that. Trees respond and adapt; we try to control the uncontrollable. We continue to pay a heavy price and still try!16/10/2016 #28 Susan RooksI am sure if we think about it, @Ali Anani, we would recognize the impact of fear and stress on everything we are. Yes, our brains suffer. Yes, our bodies suffer. The whole organism suffers! I hadn't considered including trees in my thinking, but now? Now I have to at least consider that.
Thanks for a most-unexpected buzz!16/10/2016 #27 Deb HelfrichWhat a fantastic buzz and comment section to light up a Sunday morning after a very stormy night. All the trees in my neighborhood are still standing - actually better for the winds that might have toppled them overnight. The dead material has been pruned for the earth, insects, and microscopic warriors to feast upon and the trees now have knowledge of the types of forces they might need to withstand in the future. But am I as resilient as they to the windstorms in my mind?
"I dare say we humans have been short-sighted not only using a reductionist approach to study the human body." This is the current dilemma, we are losing sight of the fact that we are using our conscious minds to comprehend our bodies and they are just not built with the processing capacity - that is why our bodies are run by the subconscious mind - a much more infallible operating system. The more we can learn to trust our bodies the better off we may be. Then we can focus on responding to our environment rather than trying to control it - for in the impetus to exert control, we generate our own fears.16/10/2016 #24 Aurorasa SimaYes, fears - rational and irrational - are like parasites that eat us alive, spread and grow stronger. Fear limits us and makes us act in ways that attract what we are afraid of. Self-fulfilling prophecies.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, allowing us to analyze and eliminate parasitic thoughts that attempt to gain control over our minds. The sulfur example is very revealing.

Wish I would have made more comments to your last posts, but as you already know, I do not use to make comments unless I did not understand firstly, and meditated about the running issue, and it will take some time for me to be capable to understand them, as your posts are lately out of the bounds of my possibilities. Sorry for that.13/10/2016 #78 Ali AnaniClarisse Nigaud
Dr. Anani, your post is appreciated profoundly. Most peoples would go online fishing for ideas, rebuff them and post an article under their names. You show in reverse, appreciate great ideas into a pot of gold! Warm Regards.
This comment was made on G+. I find it very relevant to share here. WE learn and progress by digesting ideas and not by stealing them. I am profoundly grateful to Clarisse as much as I am to everyone of you who helped me move forward. The least I could do is to say thank you and this is the nugget of wisdom that helped me improve.

1. Separation Thinking- it is not OR as much as it is AND http://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/separation-thinking
2. Story Attractors- and Slide 15 as an example. Now, the center of the tetrahedron is No Mind. This opens a new thinking on developing the structure of a story. http://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/separation-thinking
Thank you @CityVP Manjit for the inspiration Close08/10/2016 #1 Ali Anani@CityVP Manjit= I discovered one important idea from this buzz. When an author (bee) of a buzz evolves, because of a comment the author of the comment evolves as well. I am truly honored that my simple comment on your previous buzz dear Manjit resulted in this hugely relevant buzz. The movement away from separation thinking of OR to AND opened huge possibilities to reconsider minds and how they may operate.
I look at your pyramids as tetrahedral of new thinking and these two tetrahedrals are fractal because they operate at all scales and spaces. That No Mind is freedom is also greatly linked to vivid imagination where we may imagine things beyond reality. Is this imagination a form of meta-imagination or what I am not sure about, but what I am sure of is the opening of novel ways for us to think.

Comments10/10/2016 #10 AnonymousI have just now read this wonderful article and I must say dear @Sara Jacobovici - it is a beautiful expression of your journey - which I respect and appreciate your sharing with us. The following statement is certainly something quite profound: "to cease to interfere and allow what is to be and what is not, not to be. It is humbling in the sense that “the world can go on without me” and frightening because I stop to look at what I did over the last six days and take account, take responsibility." This is the awareness of a Sage.05/10/2016 #4 Lisa Gallagher@Sara Jacobovici, what a beautifully written article about "I" and how "I becomes We." You wrote: "My “I” is anciently rooted but growing and thriving in my present ground. I don’t need to “let go” of my past in order to be in the present and look forward to the future. “I” exist in a relationship with myself, others and my world. Everything I do comes from and goes into this relationship." This makes so much sense on many levels and I think our past plays a pivotal role in shaping our futures. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful article! PS: I loved Ali @Ali Anani metaphor about Trees.05/10/2016 #1 Deb HelfrichI really enjoyed reading this, @Sara Jacobovici. This time of year really feels new to me and this quote speaks to me as a necessary ritual in any well-lived life:
"I am conscious of Shabbat as a day when I need to cease to interfere and allow what is to be and what is not, not to be."

Comments09/10/2016 #63 AnonymousDear @Sara Jacobovici - here's where I am finding the absolute brilliance in your thinking more deeply on this idea "a duality holding a triad containing the integrated area formed by the internal side of the edge." This "integrated area" is intriguing me and I am so looking forward to more! I am in full agreement with @Ali Anani - "you are hitting a treasure..Great thinking." Indeed!09/10/2016 #62 Ali Anani#61 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- what a great insight "So we are not just discussing being on the edge but whether we are on the internal or external side of the edge". I can't wait to read about your thoughts. My intuition you are hitting a treasure. I was thinking of @CityVP Manjit last buzz on which I commented and I feel this ideas takes us even a step further. Great thinking09/10/2016 #61 Sara JacoboviciDear @Ali Anani and @Irene Hackett. I have not forgotten the encouragement to develop the concept of being on the edge of a triad. I'm working on it and studying the comments from you both. I was working on something focusing on duality and integration and thought of the possibility that the duality of the edge, one side connected to the sides that enclose the triad, the internal side facing the triad and the external side, although connected with other edges, the external side faces away from the containment produced by the triad. Could this external boundary be the edge of integration formed in the contained internal area, or integrated area, where we do not experience the integration? So we are not just discussing being on the edge but whether we are on the internal or external side of the edge; a duality holding a triad containing the integrated area formed by the internal side of the edge. Just updating you both with some of the thoughts going through my mind. I hope I am not travelling too far beyond the original concept. Please let me know.05/10/2016 #59 Anonymous#58 Dear @Sara Jacobovici - what rises to the surface as I think more deeply about what it may mean to live on the edge is to face our fears: to 'free fall' into the deep, expansive spaces we resist in order to feel the intensity of aliveness; in ourselves, in others, in all the universe. Ironic that to live on the edge may mean non-resistance.05/10/2016 #53 Ali Anani#52 "...On the edge in order to live fully and love deeply"- stunning quote from your comment dear @Irene Hackett- Yes, avoiding being on the edge is a recipe for missing many beauties in our lives. Thanks to this 'edge" that brought this super comment from you my dear sister.05/10/2016 #52 AnonymousDear brother @Ali Anani, although I am late in arriving, I am happy to read the lively discussions that have transpired. The 'edge' is an interesting word; it implies risk. To live fully is to risk much. The risk in accepting all that is may be the most peaceful journey. Ideas flow freely as that fall amidst a spacious backdrop. I aspire to stand in peace, and yet on the edge in order to live fully and love deeply.05/10/2016 #50 AnonymousI like to think, it's good to think, but maybe sometimes we overthink and complicate the beauty of simplicity. Maybe the edge is something sensed, maybe learning is also lived, maybe it's good sometimes to get out of our heads and into our hearts because that's the space the edge flows through everything.

Comments28/09/2016 #26 Ali Anani#25 Dear sister @Irene Hackett- it is a paradox. I am writing about standstill tree while having caught severe cold and then your comment warms me up and runs my water. Yes, we can go beyond our limitations and this is the core message of this buzz. Acceptance of our limitations creates creative thinking and yields to the production of fruity ideas such as yours.28/09/2016 #25 AnonymousDear brother @Ali Anani - first, please take good care of yourself as you are recovery from that cold! Second, know that your buzzes always warms my heart and move me beyond thoughts. It is interesting this idea of movement that is not associated with a phisical shift - I find the key concept to be 'shift'. Something within can shift as we go beyond limiting circumstance, beyond limiting thoughts (refer To @Lisa Gallagher recent triumph) and it is the power of the universe. Nothing less.28/09/2016 #21 Ali Anani#19 The expected quality of comment from @Mohammed Sultan and you never fail to deliver high quality fruity comments. I like so much your attention to "the idea we stick in our customers mind about our fruits(products) can pull them or move them to the store shelves to pick these fruits.This's the " idea pull" on which the concept of our ads is built". Amazing how you summarized my recent buzzes with such depth and interconnections.28/09/2016 #19 Mohammed SultanDear Ali Anani,PhD.Your ideas can take us everywhere and even can change the equilibrium of our minds.Trees don't move but produce fruits that provide us with the energy required to make us move.Some fruits, as well as,ideas are more preferable than others although they are irrigated by the same source ,the same water, and the same source of knowledge.Trees are like organizations can diversify organically either vertically or horizontally,change their leaves and businesses, but also keep their roots intact.The idea we stick in our customers mind about our fruits(products) can pull them or move them to the store shelves to pick these fruits.This's the " idea pull" on which the concept of our ads is built.Whether our advertising ideas are enough to do the job or not,we always go back to our pipelines of ideas to find a new one,and then run with it to the market.Our innovation process also starts with an idea that can move us everywhere and even can change our strategic equilibrium.27/09/2016 #11 debasish majumder'Trees move as well the make a paradigm shift in terms of different soil texture. lovely intriguing post. heat have two different impact on the same body. cold may solidified and hot evaporates. heat is also an intriguing form of energy! however, lovely insightful post as always sir Dr. @Ali Anani, Phd. enjoyed read. thank you very much for sharing the post, wishing you to be more solid in terms of your phenomenal posts enabling us to enrich sir.27/09/2016 #10 Ali Anani#7 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- Because we can propel ourselves across space, we often forget that movement takes place on so many different levels. What could i add? I think we need to collect your wisdom and fill it have A Jar of Wisdom by @Sara Jacobovici. Thank you and I agree fully that movement may be intangible sometimes.27/09/2016 #8 AnonymousThank you @Sara Jacobovici for your relevant and consistent comment, I am fully agree. The brain is converging to the quantum and cognitive limit, both sensorily sensitive in each of the principal quantum modes of interaction and possessing generalized sensory processing capabilities arising from edge of chaotic dynamics and quantum electro-physiology, understood in the perception of its existential dilemma to move on...Maybe ;) #527/09/2016 #7 Sara JacoboviciPart 2/2 You're right @Ali Anani when you advise us to learn from trees when things seem not to be moving. Because we can propel ourselves across space, we often forget that movement takes place on so many different levels. And, as you say, trees have much to teach us. They may not be able to propel themselves across space but there is constant movement in their growth and development and in their dynamic and intricate dance with nature. There is much to learn from how we move in stillness.
Vibrations are the signals of life forms; they are movements and only become sounds when they can be "heard".
Finally, I am always amazed by the fact that the same area of the brain that gives us signals to move our muscles is also the area that allows us to experience emotion and so we use the words "being moved" when describing something that we feel deeply. In this way, movement does not need to take place exclusively on a physical level. But there is no doubt how important emotions are to help us move, react, respond, engage and so on. And no doubt how important a physical movement is to enable us to shift or get out of an emotional stuck place.
Dr. Ali, I wish you a quick recovery. Feel well soon and thank you for the bottom of my heart.

Then I go to the other dimension of people studying effects of people looking at this effect and the words apophenia and pareidolia pop up. http://59ways.blogspot.ca/2012/01/apophenia-and-pareidolia_09.html This too can become way too outside the range of the layman, indeed the more one studies this, the more we begin to identify with the world that @Gerald Hecht and @Deb Helfrich will readily understand, well beyond the mainstream.
What Milos does well in his comments is make a linkage between the creation of social networks and complex adaptive systems, which so far invariably brings me back to the one place where these linkages are studied at depth, which is namely the Sante Fe Institute and even then that Institute provides disclaimers between the work of individual researchers and its purpose. One such work is by Melanie Mitchell, called Complex Systems: Network Systems. http://www.santafe.edu/media/workingpapers/06-10-036.pdf
Even if there is a Seth Godin or Malcolm Gladwell type that can channel the work of researchers into mainstream insights, I recognize that complex adaptive systems explain much but the large body of business thinking is wired differently, so we can learn to see these thing but not get mainstream business folk to see what it is we have learned. That is what I see as "hidden" in fractal power, so I am still grappling with how best to make this invisible visible - otherwise we end up in complex thinking communicated as a specialty. Close24/09/2016 #104 Fatima WilliamsSo coming back reading this buzz is as @Donna-Luisa Eversley mentioned is beauty beyond measure and it's quality is simply profound.
I would love to agree with @Irene Hackett beautiful comment here as she shares my thoughts on this
" You, dear Ali are the "Fractal Power acting on systems (beBee) on organizing movement (of thoughts and ideas) ....so as to maximize their use of available resources." Your inspiration moves us, our thoughts & ideas beautifully colliding and taking new direction and shape - such as cannot be measured, but like a fractal coastline, when one looks close, such inspiration is much bigger than the senses can perceive"
As Milos says " Learning about fractals to me is more like absorbing and shaping of my perceptions "
The beauty of the object is in the hands and eyes of the maker and that beauty reflects that person inner beauty like that of the beautiful snowflake and the Fractals Forever beBee's who have the Fractal Power to organise, enrich and enlightened play a major role in avoiding the crowdedness of ideas.

No matter what million thanks to you dear @DILMA BALBI -Contratos e Gestão15/09/2016 #60 Fatima WilliamsI read this buzz yesterday and today I read the comments and I enjoyed each comment thoroughly.
I love the idea of insulating of our ideas from fear and doubt. Kind of an insurance for our ideas to keep them from being swept away by the wind. When Ideas are spilled we should not let the idea to be swept away rather we insulate it from the fear and doubt created, ensure that it survives to become a stronger idea such as the tempered glass. As the insulation process nurtures the idea and makes it stronger.
If we were told that our ideas are not worthy it's simply because it is unique and noone has tried/heard it before on fear to implement or elaborate on the same.
This often happens in corporate offices where the new is simply looked at as a tsunami and they would rather lose an entire project than implement a worthy new idea. Pushing that new idea up the bucket is like the crab story the only difference is that one crab had the idea and other's feared that idea not releasing it's value if they simply chose not to understand.
" I want to teach you to live the truth, to reveal the light within your own soul - said Swami Vivekanda "
The truth is that it is your idea and that it can reveal light that can be spread within your own soul and to those around us as well.
Similar to what Ali Anani , Sara Jacobovici and CityVP Manjit and many great bees do on beBee.
As the different streams having their sources in different paths which men take through different tendencies; various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee.

Thanks, I would welcome your feedback. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/another-f-word-sara-jacobovici?trk=mp-reader-card14/09/2016 #48 Aurorasa Sima#47 Fear changes our brain (I am writing a honey about this currently). When we get hurt, emotionally or physically, it triggers a connection to the primitive part of the brain. If there is a neural pathway to the primitive part of the brain, we will react before we have the chance to think (think about a fly hitting your window when you´re driving on the highway. You WILL blink before you think "it cannot hit me"). You have a very high EQ. But we need to understand that a lot of people do not. Often, they do not have the chance for rational thinking because their brain forces them to an immediate "fight or run" primitive reaction. The triggers are similar situations, not identical. Luckily, that can be trained.14/09/2016 #47 Sara Jacobovici#41 Agreed @Aurorasa Sima, fear is a primal instinct. From my perspective fear can only can hinder our spiritual growth when we have given the fear a different meaning than it had in its original form. In its original form, fear is an important form of communication; it alerts us, it makes us attend to something. When fear stops communicating and becomes "something", that is what hinders our spiritual growth. Yes, primal instincts can influence our ability to think rationally but again, it is up to us to understand the influence and what to make of it. If we allow the primal instinct to be in control, than of course we can't access our rational thinking.
+214/09/2016 #45 Sara Jacobovici#42 Grateful and appreciative @Ali Anani for your generous and kind words.
The question of nature's consciousness is both interesting and important. There is no doubt in my mind that every life form has the means to direct their "behaviours" towards the optimum conditions. From that point of view, choices are being formed. I eagerly look forward to your next discussion, Dr. Ali.
- 14/09/2016It is a great honor that my buzz on Don't Cry on Spilled Ideas
is being circulated on the great and new feature of beBee. Bebee today is in its latest update of the APP has included "Buzz Live" is a tool that allows us to broadcast live from our mobile device and from anywhere (provided you have Internet). We could say that Live Buzz is how to have a tv station itself in the palm of the hand and also free.

Comments13/09/2016 #46 CityVP Manjit#43 A slow processor is a fascinating individual, they teach us patience and humility. I think top of the tree on my stupid category would be narcissists, and they might even be a professor or a philosopher, it all comes down to how we see intelligent action. To be intelligent does not mean knowing stuff, for me, it means being intelligent to existence. When I am stupid to existence, then I am stupid, but unless I have a bad hair day, I generally tend not to be.13/09/2016 #44 Aurorasa Sima#31 Did you have a chance to look at the ppt presentation about the default state? It´s very much related to your wonderful comment @Lisa Gallagher.
We´re lucky that we have the awareness that we have to continue learning. I thought about beauty and women. While they are in their most flawless state they are the most insecure and often even unhappy. Sometimes, only when the beauty changes and lovable flaws start to develop do they start to really embrace and enjoy it.13/09/2016 #43 Aurorasa Sima#42 I love the way you look at it. Yes, a tree can be both, a flower can be both. Do you mean stupid people as in ignorant? I don´t mind people with a slow processor, just the ignorant-stupid type.
What you are saying about evolution (trees will survive us, maggots, lizards ... ) reminded me: Yesterday I briefly read (I´ll have to deepen my knowledge about this research) that they found ... well here is the post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2016/03/30/cornell-study-finds-some-people-may-be-genetically-programmed-to-be-vegetarians/
I did not know that men have to watch their estrogen levels, interesting.
Your comment is great. It´s worth a separate honey.13/09/2016 #42 CityVP ManjitEverything evolves, tree's have evolved in both the time of the dinosaurs and the time of human beings. To understand a male tree and a female tree or a tree that can be both male and female, and a boy flower and a girl flower, is to understand the wonder of nature. The dinosaurs would have been around just long enough to begin digesting flowering trees, but the main tree in their era were conifers and ferns.
Whether the human race has longevity or it too goes the way of the dinosaur, one thing is for sure, tree's predate us and may even survive us. This means that human beings are still evolving. We are not yet evolved enough as a human race to fully embrace the wonder of nature that creates male and female aspects and that is what is important, rather than the way human beings have been conditioned to react to gender through cultural conditioning.
There are plenty of old men who will go to their graves with minds that they will refuse to evolve, stuck in their ways they will be, and some even may not paying attention to their estrogen balance, if it brings fear in their hearts that their bodies contain a female hormone http://www.lifeextension.com/magazine/2010/5/why-estrogen-balance-is-critical-to-aging-men/page-01
Tree's are therefore highly evolved and their evolution can teach us how to survive the ages in a way that dinosaurs could not. There is a bias that I do have, I want to engage intelligent women and men, and avoid stupid men and stupid women. As we evolve, this is the shifting balance which will lead us to renaissance - and tree's are a symbol of that renaissance.13/09/2016 #40 Salma Rodriguez#4 #9 @Sara Jacobovici When I read this: "When it comes to survival, we can't do it alone, we need each other. Nothing wrong with that." I was thinking of something someone said earlier on LI about "growing alone together", which is one of the actively researched topics in social media. Yet, looking through a different prism, I do not feel alone. In contrast to any preconceived notions of exacerbating the problem with solipsism (that of me only knowing that I exist but not being able to know about the existence of other minds or even if existence itself exists), social media has most certainly helped me communicate with people from other countries. This global citizenship and global outreach was never before possible, prior to the advent of the Internet.
Global citizenship exists without regards to social boundaries, our social status, where we grew up or what our background/culture is.
@Francis our role in life has become more clouded, but this can be taken as a challenge and opportunity for many people who figure out the best way to navigate our highly complex web. It is an opportunity to be human again and give to others, without requesting anything in return. This is the best quality of a human being; it is something that I am happy to see becoming important in the 21st century. Philosophers like myself feel empowered in this new Age of Aquarius and today we are what were yesterday's leaders. We lead with passion, love, sympathy for everyone and without interest :-)12/09/2016 #38 Aurorasa Sima#29 Well, my dear Irene, even a broken leg can be a source of growth if you do great things you would otherwise not have done while you heal. I did not expand on "pain" because my argument was that pain is the cause of irrational thinking - not that it is always bad. It´s also not the only source of irrational thinking. Also, people who suffer a lot of emotional pain are often stronger. Others break.12/09/2016 #33 Karen Anne Kramer ~ CNN Women Leaders 2015The greatest gift to me was my tree house. An oak tree which sheltered me from all fear. I had solitude and time to understand how the universe works. Time to write. This tree taught me to be gentle on myself when i made mistakes. It gave the gift of writing. The fruit was acorns for the animals. Something for everyone. To this day I retreat to hear the wind thru the branches. It soothes my soul. I feel loved.12/09/2016 #31 Lisa GallagherI really enjoyed this buzz @Aurorasa Sima. You made a lot of great points like this one- "Trees are not fearful. For they know they can handle most obstacles and when they can´t they´ve already spread seeds to be reborn. " One thing about the human spirit as analogy to spreading seeds is that we can regroup and spread new seeds with hopes that our minds are reborn through positive actions and dialect. These are great conversations to be holding. And, the fact that trees and fruit spend their lifespan without knowing fear or having to be mindful of emotions is something we as humans have to work on daily. I think life is a lesson that is on-going until our time on earth is over. When we stop learning, we stop living.12/09/2016 #29 AnonymousDear @Aurorasa Sima - please don't every 'quickly' feel you must 'quickly' leave a discussion here on beBee, all are welcome and all have a valuable contribution to make. Your boldness is so refreshing and there is much truth and reality in your point of view. There is much to discuss throughout this great buzz, however I shall focus on your following statement: "The gift of rational thinking can be a tough one. The ability of rational thinking is affected by emotions. Especially painful emotions lead to irrational thinking and therefore fear." Is it possible that painful emotions and fear also be viewed as a different sort of "gift"? Powerful, positive change and human transcendence often gets its fuel from pain and fear. I'm not saying pain and fear is like receiving a happy, pretty package with a bow. There is value in painful emotion and a place for healthy fear. Growth. So great dear @Ali Anani to see these great offshoots from your ideas!

Immense again, are your ideas! But even more immense is the love I see for our dear friend @Ali Anani. May I make it known that you and I have something in common dear friend, which is our great affinity for this wonderful man who is giving us more than he can imagine with his poetic verse and loving support of our participating in his thought process! My favorite line in this grand post dear @David Navarro López is "But no doubt about it, one day a small mass with high speed “bubble” will appear, and its kinetic energy will put in motion a bigger potential mass of ideas which were “latent” ever since". No doubt it is dear @Ali Anani that is our 'kinetic energy'!

What do you think about?09/09/2016 #10 Ali AnaniI live a new paradox that I doubt I have ever lived before. My friends I feel inflated like a bubble with your great appreciation and praise. I am writing about bubbles and yet feel unable to write about my own bubble. Dear @David Navarro López- as I have just responded to one of your comments on my last buzz in which one word of three letters (key) has opened my mind to a new thinking about trees in so many different directions such as in storytelling. Your kindness, genuine friendship and sharp mind alerted me to ideas that were in front of my eyes and yet were blurred. I now believe LOVE is to influence others without intending to. Believe me I failed few times to respond or comment because I couldn't match and still unable to reach your level of appreciation for others.
With LOVE I say thank you dears @David Navarro López, @Sara Jacobovici, @DILMA BALBI -Contratos e Gestão and @Aaron Skogen.09/09/2016 #9 Anonymous#4 Each human being has the capacity to produce constructive and destructive bubbles. I have never seen @Ali Anani showing a negative one, or a bad response, and I swear to God that with some comments of "undesirable commenters" done to Ali's posts I would have reacted badly.
But he never did. Furthermore, he answered in the most polite way trying to find an "honorable" way out for the "bully". A great lesson.
To your words "How we can mange to minimize the destructive ones and support the constructive ones are age old dilemmas." I am responding at Ali's post, as the present post is just an extension of the original one.

Comments08/09/2016 #17 Franci Eugenia HoffmanI read about the author, Simone de Beauvoir, which brings some extra meaning to the quote. IMO, the quote is about her life and how she wants it to be. It may not be known how she will get there but even if impossible, she will conquer. Here is a link to her philosophy. http://www.philosophytalk.org/community/blog/laura-maguire/2015/04/simone-de-beauvoir
I love this last paragraph: "If we’re going to talk about “radical freedom” at all, then it should be in the context of the real-life choices we are presented with in our lived experiences. It can’t be an abstract choice to be free. This was one of Beauvoir’s biggest insights. "
Thank you @Ali Anani for tagging me and thank you for sharing @Sara Jacobovici07/09/2016 #14 Aaron Skogen#13 Oh @Deb Helfrich, while it may be nice to see the three little bubbles blinking (like they do on my iphone), I am afraid some may be waiting an awful long time. Sometimes, as I read some of these deeper posts, I feel as though I have only scratched the surface of exploration. Frankly I often feel of inferior intellect, as I read, re-read, read and ponder. . . There have been times where its a day or two before posting a comment and sometimes, I just click the "like" button, as I have no words. . . (and I refuse to simply say "nice post"). Hopefully the comments suffice :-).07/09/2016 #13 Deb Helfrich#11 If only there was some way to indicate that we are contemplating these deep buzzes, right, @Aaron Skogen?
I would really like it if there was a similar functionality sort of like how you can see that someone else is typing in a chat window, so that the writers of these great buzzes could see all the time I spend reading and thinking prior to getting around to saying something....07/09/2016 #11 Aaron SkogenThere is indeed and what a great quote @Sara Jacobovici. While I know I miss many exchanges and posts here, when I do catch and read them, I enjoy your and @Ali Anani's work. I often find myself lost in contemplation, reading and re-reading to ensure I am grasping the concepts. Yet, this is the very reason I love the thought provoking content you, Dr. Ali and many others write, as the triumph is found in the quest of understanding.07/09/2016 #10 mohammed khalafWe live in an age of innovation, when creativity is of increasing value. Not only is creativity important for artists and writers, Some say that dreams are one place to find inspiration for creativity. According to research, people who are creative and imaginative are more likely to have vivid dreams at night and to remember them when they wake up06/09/2016 #7 Deb HelfrichAnd there is philosophy in both poetry and science. I also feel this very visceral identification with a vast view. The frisson of the satisfaction of merely being an observer and yet the pull to feel integrated withe the water or trees or mountains on the horizon.
I believe this conundrum speaks to the universal force that sparks life, we can recognize it within and without, but it takes being calm contemplating to notice it simultaneously.06/09/2016 #4 AnonymousOh @Sara Jacobovici, a more perfect quote could not have been found - as I feel sometimes this is exactly what our dear friend @Ali Anani must be doing as he "contemplates" the topics he writes about; he becomes the water, the bubbles, the sand, the triads! It is wonderful you acknowledge the inspiration he has given you to "learn, think and "write" - what joy! And may I also say: Dear Dr. Ali, the work of your mind and heart expressed with words, fire my senses up to where I find myself thinking in new ways, learning in new ways, and now writing and engaging in new ways - you are a gift! Thank you both for adding this poetry to my life! I am blessed!06/09/2016 #1 Ali AnaniDear @Sara Jacobovici- what a great way to start my day! ALl I can say is that knowing you is a triumph. Now with your such poetic quote I wonder what dear @Irene Hackett would say! I feel like saying "tell me what you quote and I tell who you are". Dear Sara, your quotes are incredibly beautiful, relevant and full of meaning. I am honored to be mentioned in this buzz, which I shared proudly. If you "labor" to produce such beauty dear Sara then I hope you keep laboring. Rarely I tag others, but this time I want to tag @Franci Eugenia Hoffman, David @David Navarro López and surely @Irene Hackett to enjoy this buzz. Dear @Anees Zaidi is apparently on holiday. Thank you Sara again for you mesmerized me with your kind words. I am truly honored.

I am in a position where I'm 50 years old, and I need to change careers. Sounds crazy I know. I'm driving a truck in the oil and gas industry. I always made pretty good money doing it. Now that Alberta is under an anti oil government, and our country is run by a complete moron, also against oil and gas, my career is pretty much doomed. I'm still working now, and on days off I'm building web pages from scratch. I'm trying to do something I'm good at. But I'm not formally educated in it. But I found your article very informative and relevant.30/08/2016 #40 AnonymousThank you @Dean Owen for your thoughts on this, again I appreciate the honesty. Surely being a "good parent" & a "loving husband" is a purpose that produces depth of character and provides riches that run quite "deep". And it takes a lifetime to pursue! I always enjoy hearing from you-your insights are a treat!30/08/2016 #38 Dean OwenYou got me thinking @Irene Hackett! I suspect many people just fall into a career and do not discover their purpose until very late in their lives. Perhaps our purpose doesn't have to be so deep. Perhaps our purpose can just be to be a good parent, a loving husband. Some people are born to cure cancer, feed the poor, but there is nothing wrong with making people happy. For some people happiness is elusive, and finding happiness themselves can be a meaningful purpose. Ahhh, thinking to much now. I'll just be me if OK with y'all.29/08/2016 #37 AnonymousI really appreciate the honesty in your reply @@Phillip Hubbell and I am struck by your claim "whatever I do has never been who I am". Perhaps purpose is more about who you are while you are doing it. Just a thought. I thank you for your great feedback @Phillip Hubbell.29/08/2016 #34 Phillip HubbellInterestingly, to me anyway, I have never linked what I did for a living to my life’s purpose. I have always sought work to merely pay for things needed…so my work has been diverse. I do wrestle with the existential meanings of life, but not from the standpoint of what I do for work. The purpose to me has turned out to be about how I have engaged those whom I have encountered along the way. How I have looked at the world around me and any influence I have had on my family, my wife, my kids and grandkids. In the work, it has been important to do it well, but the reasons for doing it well were mercenary. What I do has never been who I am. Thanks for posting this....made me stop and think.29/08/2016 #29 Mamen DelgadoMy dear @Irene Hackett, when I saw yesterday your Producer and read the title, I felt a shiver down my spine. My personal answer is yes, YES!!
And now that I got the necessary quite time to read your article about your experience, another shiver came to me.

Thank you for such sweet feedback which in turn leaves me smiling! You are very wise to ask yourself the right questions - it is important to keep the 'end' in mind or the 'outcome' in mind when making decisions, for sure. I stand beside you and I'm sure friend @Jim Cody does too when you say the "crux" of our purpose is: "To make a difference and to light up people's lives" ! To edify - to lift others up - to BEE love in action, is the outcome in my purpose to serve. Be blessed dear @Fatima Williams!29/08/2016 #23 AnonymousThank you @Lisa Gallagher. I can't say I always carefully thought through each decision in life, however I have am blessed to have a strong sense of purpose that guides me. So kind of you to say that I've made a positive impact on you here on beBee; that truly warms my heart and the feelings are mutual my friend!29/08/2016 #21 Fatima WilliamsFirst off I love the picture you posted. You look amazing @Irene Hackett and that's quite an adventurous journey and all the positivity that pours out through your words is like honey to my ears , I tend to smile while reading your buzzes.
To get our life's purpose from our jobs is a blessing and not many can achieve that. Are you thriving? Are you happy? Are you content ? and I can go on. It's when we ask ourselves these question's we realize our life's purpose. This happens as you said - as a life long pursuit in different ways through our career , relationships and friendships. Some of us find it sooner , some later and some times our life's purpose changes altogether down the line, but the crux of it remains the same - To make a difference and to light up people's lives !
As Ali Anani said " Your purpose of helping others is a grand one and we all celebrate it here with you on beBee as you are making a difference"
You go girl and stay awesome always :)29/08/2016 #20 Lisa Gallagher@Irene Hackett, thank you for sharing your life story about decision making, your goals, introspect and finding what it is that truly makes you happy.

Failure - as we've often seen with inventors and writers, for example - can often push our imagination into overdrive (once we've accepted that failure). Causing us to think as they say 'outside the box'; and consider options, ideas and plans we otherwise would never have considered.

It is a great way of putting it. Life is a constant swing between two opposites. Waves?
The place I like the most defines me. Is there a best place? Not for the universe and chaos.
It is up to us to decide. We are free. Absolute freedom means absolute freedom to fail or succeed.

An idea crossed my mind: when we swing between cycles like pendulums the numbers that help are complex numbers with the real and imaginary components. May be it is the same with imagination and knowledge.27/08/2016 #68 Peter van DoornYou are a very special person @ @Ali Anani
I can only say that I found out that finding a balance between opposites makes me happy and whole.
Maybe that is what our universe is all about? The sum of all negative and positive is the integer zero?
But somehow trying to find balance feels more like 1+1=3. And imbalance feels like 1=0.
Knowledge and imagination, left and right (brain). You need both I think.27/08/2016 #66 AnonymousYes, dear brother @Ali Anani! You perfectly summed-up my comment, yet with far more eloquence - "our brains are limited by reality; our imagination aren't limited because they see beyond reality."

It is so true that you are prolific and forgive me for having not consumed all of your brilliant buzzes as yet, but I will in time( giggles).A time capsule/e-book with all the buzzes really ?? I'll be the first to get my hands on them.
I want to Thank God dear Mr Ali Anani for giving you the heart of sharing, sharing your ideas with us. And then for allowing us to have known you , for there are a very few like you here on earth who are so equanimous and gracious to share a little piece of themselves to the world.
Ideas are like a grain of wheat, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. For with an idea another one and another one are born, similar to that of your buzzes. Like the grains on the sands of time that are tossed into different beautiful patterns. If we keep our ideas in our head and do not bury them into the sand , they will not get the chance of being tested with the wind like you said,they must get battered and tested and finally blown to the formation of a unique pattern created by time & nature itself that which is now beyond oons.
Congratulations on this mighty 100th Buzz 🏅🏅👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🏅🏅23/08/2016 #80 Ali Anani#79 @Harvey Lloyd- I bow my head in respect of your comment. It is extremely valuable. Your writing "Time evolves us, but the principals of life stay the same". This is a wonderful statement. I fully agree with you that a buzz or comment in the right time and when we are on the edge of a state a nudge-a mere nudge- may send us into unknown paths. I feel the nudge of your comment right now23/08/2016 #79 Harvey LloydI have enjoyed the few posts I have read and see that you seek deeper meaning within your posts. A post is just in time supply management. The difference, you are uncertain as to where the supply is needed. I can discuss with you philosophically your thoughts and how they may awaken my own or possibly I am at the edge of forming a perspective and your post will nudge me a little right or left. Sometimes that nudge is subconscious and I may not even know you nudged until three days later. Wisdom is a timeless need. Time evolves us, but the principals of life stay the same. Thank you for yours and congrats on your 100th buzz.23/08/2016 #77 Ali Anani#76 Thank you @Pascal Derrien for being honest. I appreciate your comment and hidden amazement that an old man runs so fast. But it is the reason why I am writing frequently as I am not sure for how long I shall be living or able to write. It is also for this reason that I am compiling my buzzes into e-books, which interested readers can download free.23/08/2016 #76 Pascal DerrienYou are so prolific that I have some difficulty to keep up :-) I probably read one in ten not sure if you have considered maximizing the impact by reducing the cadence ? I am sure I miss 60% of your good food for thought gems and I would guess I am not the only one Have a great 100th day.23/08/2016 #72 Tausif MundrawalaAll the buzzes ,of yours, which I read up till now has resonated well with me. You have always went to the core of the subject be it : ideas, honey bees, sand grains, and nectar. Life became more philosophical in its truest sense, by reading your posts. An excellent way to bring forth this hundredth buzz.23/08/2016 #68 Anees ZaidiDear brother @Ali Anani it is good that it 'laughs' on us not 'cries' on us. The laughter begets laughter and laughter brings joy and happiness. What better joy and happiness we may feel than to see the tree we implant growing. My best wishes to all your great endeavors.

Comments23/08/2016 #17 Sara Jacobovici#13 The beauty of it all @Savvy Raj is that each time we dip into the universal consciousness, we come up with a slight variation of the original self. And for me, there is no other means better than art to experience this process. Thanks for the information about your art work. Well done!!23/08/2016 #13 Savvy Raj#4 First of thank you for your kind words of appreciation to both the post and the picture. dear Sara Jacobovici To answer your query...The artwork is a fractal art generated digitally , thank you for sharing your reflections on it . It is rightly said as you lose the self in art you find the self. Then again what is the self that gets found .... simply an awakening to the infinity in the subtlety of the universal consciousness that is . And yes I thank Ali @Ali Anani for the kind mention of this post as well .22/08/2016 #11 Savvy Raj#3 Your words ....'

Thank you @Ali Anani am truly grateful to learn from you and your keen insights as well as for finding the bridge of interconnects iin some of the posts and thoughts. Close22/08/2016 #9 AnonymousThis is an incredibly rich post dear @Savvy Raj - I enjoy such stirring of thought! Our friend @Sara Jacobovici described your wonderful writing style best in that "Your words are a verbal reflection/expression of your art work." I am most fascinated by your statement "Likewise every life exists on a physical plane as well as in a metaphysical plane and perhaps amongst many other dimensions yet unknown ,where the interconnects run deeper than we can fathom." It is here where I am imagining our 'being' as something we cannot yet describe. We are learning about the body and mind as energy and vibration and consciousness, and yet maybe there is a phenomenon far beyond our understanding of the Universe that awaits our development! This is exciting subject matter for which I thank you in bringing it here for discussion and exploration.21/08/2016 #4 Sara JacoboviciDear @Savvy Raj. Your words are a verbal reflection/expression of your art work. I literally experienced the words move through the pattern, from inside out. I want to thank @Ali Anani for bringing your Buzz to my attention. Dr. Ali is right, I do find what you write intriguing: "So while the inner and outer self can be completely at odds with each other yet they feed each other and are perhaps evolving as they learn from one another". For me, this reflects the dynamic struggle from which growth occurs; it is the process of integrating those elements which are at odds with each other that enable learning and growth. Another line that intrigues me, and it is the first time I see it expressed in this way, is; "our outer personna that is projected in this world". I am more used to seeing and hearing how our inner persona is projected, while our outer persona is a designed facade. Interesting to think of the outer as able to project. Do you mind describing what media or materials you used for your art work? Thank you Savvy for a mesmerizing work; both non-verbal and verbal.21/08/2016 #3 Anees ZaidiAn intriguing post @Savvy Raj. Thanks for sharing your powerful thoughts. Your another strong statement that has led me to think deeply: "Although life in every living being can seem an extremely individualistic in effort and approach and may seem justified as unique to its being, life thrives in the connectedness." Dear Brother @Ali Anani if I would dare to mix this buzz with that of yours fabulous and amazing buzz 'The Honeycomb of Idea' I would say 'Destiny would not laugh at me but destiny would enable me to "learn lessons, acquire new abilities, develop our consciousness and help others". Confluence of two great minds delves me deeper into my own self and is 'altering (and elevating) states of (my) awareness'.
- Producer18/08/2016Chinar Talks - The Story of a Squirrel Bitten Guava FruitImage Source: GoogleThis story was born with a 'bite' by Fatima Williams on Ali Anani's buzz 'Is Social Media Waste of Time?' Fatima commented:"Social media is my like the guava tree that I once had in my backyard. Not every fruit is sweet but they...
Comments19/08/2016 #24 Lisa Gallagher@Anees Zaidi, thank you for tagging me. First let me state I find the name , Fatima beautiful. I liked the similarities you drew to your own daughter, Fatima as well. Such a positive buzz and all of you that have commented make the world a better place, including my corner of the world. Loved the squirrel video. I promise not to bite or nip. Feeling bitey drai b s us of our positive energy and I need all the reserves I can get. Sometimes we just need reminders like your buzz to stay centered and ignore negativity we will never be able to control. The light always draws me back!19/08/2016 #22 AnonymousAw, this buzz is simply gushing with sweetness @Anees Zaidi! Yes, it may have been that Fatima shares the same name as your daughter that introduced that first 'spark' of admiration but when comments from Fatima such as "One of my passion's in life is to light up the world around me, I try to do it at home, work , while meeting strangers on the metro or the bus. This I believe is a gift by God and we should put it to use to its full potential." - clearly this is the "Columbus Force" that keeps us all "flowing on the current" of her squirrel bitten fruit! Thank you @Fatima Williams for tagging me - it is such a pleasure to witness the mutual admiration the two of you have for one another - beBee seems to bring out the best in us Bees!!18/08/2016 #20 Anees Zaidi#19 Dear @Praveen Raj Gullepalli we all have by and large similar childhood memories. Yes we have covered a long journey with sweet and sour memories. I consider childhood as best part of our long journey. The Tree, The Fruit and Me is a good triad. Build up a structure on it.18/08/2016 #19 Praveen Raj GullepalliThe Tree. The Fruit. And Me. Is this another triad that I see @Anees Zaidi? :) What one calls Affinity, is it similar to the field generated by Electricity? Yes, i remember a guava tree, young and growing free up against the sidewall of the hall facing the backyard in 1973...On holiday summer afternoons I used to climb up to the roof with my fearless younger brother, using it and be real scared of climbing down later, but somehow managed the scary descent every time! The fruit was easy picking, sometime bird bitten and I also chewed the budding shoots with a bite of tamarind to add that mouthwatering tang to it! From the tree of our childhood we played on, footloose and fancy free to the Tree of Affinity has been a long way indeed! :) Thanks for reminding me of that old Guava tree!18/08/2016 #17 Anees Zaidi#15 Dear @Sara Jacobovici thank you for your lovely bite. It was a 'spark' from @Ali Anani I just blew the wind:)) You are absolutely right. Those are the shared memories of childhood that convert the fights into friendly fights and make the bonding of lover stronger and deeper. We always enrich ourself with your knowledge and wisdom. Thanks for your lovely contribution.18/08/2016 #16 CityVP Manjit#6 Dear Fatima, to me it is bits, bites and bytes - all elements of our new technological extension. There are two bookends in this digital which comprise of taste and waste - both of which are a natural part of life and not a statement of judgement. In the middle is where the guava should be - as nutrition. How we individually transform through that nutrition is ours to discover. Before we end up needing a digital doctor, let's see if we know our fitness.
When it comes to squirrels, the squirrel became a symbol of my rebellion once upon a time against a very egotistical manager. I had plenty of fun with this symbol but ultimately it is best that story goes no further, lest it now serves to embarrass that manager. I now have an affectionate view of the squirrel as personal symbol of rebellion. Having rebelled using the symbol of the squirrel, now anyone mentions a squirrel, yes it does trigger that memory, but such is its personal symbolic significance, that is how far the squirrel goes, for in my life journey, now there can no other squirrel, I must remain faithful here to my own squirrel :-)18/08/2016 #15 Sara JacoboviciThank you @Anees Zaidi for the tag to your wonderful Buzz. I know it sounds cliche but I can't help and say "what a small world"! I am moved by the connections you describe between @Fatima Williams and your daughter, as well as your shared comments and memories. Thank you for finding a way of putting it all in writing. Thank you @Ali Anani for bringing the paradox to my attention. I think that it is the visceral experience of climbing the trees and grabbing for the sweetest fruits, that created the bond, the shared memory; an intense shared experience brought the siblings to the point of bonding, not necessarily the "fighting".
