Comments06/04/2017 #5 Savvy Raj#4 This is one of those moments when writing and sharing stories from our lives bring us a deep sense of connection... with our readers and ourselves in gratitude for the learnings. And there is that sense of magic through words.
This is an old story but to me, but sharing it evokes the same poignant feeling of fond memories of the people that are attached to it. Thank you @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee for your caring to share your thoughts here It is wonderful to know you enjoyed it. I see this as a great personal learning, sharing it here on Bebee. With both you and @Sara Jacobovici. having reflected on my writing skills and concurring. I am indeed truly honoured and motivated by your words to share more05/04/2017 #4 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeNever write a comment post a comment by @Sara Jacobovici because she reads my mind. I concur with Sara and I find that the talent of @Savvy Raj in writing stories is rare. I started to sketch the events and the tension build up and I find this buzz a great example of storytelling. March on Savvy.05/04/2017 #3 Savvy Raj#1 The joy of writing is only surpassed by the acceptance of what you wrote ... Robert Lucas
Thank you dear Sara for your sensing the story with me and caring to share this . It is interactions such as these that leave us touched beyond words in the circle of life and living and propels us to do more. Felt this story needs to be shared. And Thank you for your kind words
and keen observation of my skills in time.Truly an honour coming from a prolific person like you ..05/04/2017 #1 Sara JacoboviciBRAVO @Savvy Raj. Your story is wonderful on so many levels! First, you are a great storyteller. I was able to "follow every step" of emotion and learning. You are also a great teacher because you are a witness to your students' learning and experience. And you also learn from them; this is the most important sign of being a good teacher. You are also a very creative person; through dance, images, poetry, writing and storytelling. Finally, you have all the ingredients to be a successful business person; "Cultivate Patience. Dream selflessly. Positive things are waiting to unfold if only we continue to dream our unique dream and believe in it ! All you need is the strength of intention and the dreams realizes itself , just trust in the process! Do what you do with all your heart ! Like minded people will arrive somehow and help you actualize it !"

Comments03/04/2017 #66 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#65 This comment of yours @Savvy Raj reflects your depth and maturity. I don't want to interrupt the dialogue between you and @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I want to register my appreciation of your comment and to give a promise to read your two buzzes very soon.03/04/2017 #65 Savvy Raj#63 Thank you @ CityVP Manjit for bringing me here and for the kind mention and share of my todays buzz on Subtlety Consciousness Although it has yet to receive some views if it has a purpose as to why I must have created it it certainly it will fulfill it in time! Like through your kind share of it here for instance 😊
@ Ali Anani thank you for inviting me here in your very purposeful buzz as well as for these amazing writers who have shared their heartprints of wisdom and goodwill.It will certainly be a treat to read their comments as much as this 'successful buzz' ! It is certainly a joy to read your insights here.
Well you have essentially captured the manyessential elements towards emergence...And I do beleve that the depth of purpose is one of the paths leading to successful emergence .And success is an interesting journey and not a destination . Success is truly sensed when we find the purpose and in working towards it passionately.
The more you sense the bigger picture ... you lovingly loose yourself in something that is bigger than yourself... the greater your energy and the closer you are to where you want to be ..
Success in such an evolving emergence is within each of us ... waiting for us to make a move towards it.
And perhaps if you find time , you would like to read two of my poems that I sense an interconnect here .One on the Subtlety of Consciousness. and then Emergence. Would be happy to read your reflections to it.03/04/2017 #64 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#63 I am just "listening" now to this wonderful exchange of comments. Revolve and evolve- only one letter (r) makes so much difference. Even letters show a butterfly effect. I hope that @Savvy Raj adds her wisdom to the pile of wisdom that is building up here. Thank you @CityVP 🐝 Manjit and I have no doubt tat @Harvey Lloyd will have something to share us with.03/04/2017 #63 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#58 The world revolves and all life including human life evolves. It is not too challenging a word if we realize that there are parts of our DNA that have no apparent function, they are dormant and doing nothing - and here something is transmitted or transformed and there is new code operating within us.
What is frightening about tech and synthetic biology is how it is tampering with our inner code and trying to splice into our human code. No wonder some technologists fear that we are creating the end of our own species as we tamper with life.
Accelerated change at the individual level has allowed us to do something here that would have required much time in days of letters - which is deposit thought that is immediate and be able to draw in thoughts at a rate that human beings have never done before - and that must surely be triggering something in the dormant parts of our DNA - because our mind and body is now responding to something new, in ways I assume our DNA is already encoded to expect.
Take @Savvy Raj latest buzz "Subtlety of Consciousness" https://www.bebee.com/producer/@savvy-raj/subtlety-of-consciousness the way it is read is how we have evolved to read it or where our code is in terms of maturity and how we will evolve once new inputs permeate us. The impact of evolution here is personal, it is what evolves within us - and that is why I think revolutions have limited impact and often return us back to what we originally revolted from.03/04/2017 #61 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#60 You walk the talk my friend @Aaron Skogen and therefore your words resonate strongly with me. You live the experience of giving service to others as testifies very well in your last buzz. So, I love your adding "May we sow gratitude, and reap the greatest of all gifts. I sow now the seeds of gratitude to your deeds for the needy and you reap the respect and hearts of all of us.03/04/2017 #60 Aaron Skogen#20 I am humbled that you would so kindly share and reference my buzz @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.
I absolutely love your conclusion here, "Peace in the heart starts by loving for others what you love for yourself." This implies service to others, which I believe is a gateway to living a life of gratitude. May we sow gratitude, and reap the greatest of all gifts.
I am reminded of a quote,
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~ Melody Beattie
Thank you for this wonderful Buzz my friend.03/04/2017 #59 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#58 I am sure @CityVP 🐝 Manjit shall respond to your great comment @Harvey Lloyd. You both raise hugely interesting discussions and I don't want to interrupt the flow.
"Can we put the cat back in the bag"? Would love to hear the answer of Manjit.03/04/2017 #58 Harvey Lloyd#53 "Evolve". This is a very challenging word as it implies the mass change to a society in a direction. Today it would appear that we can reach a state of evolution of serving others only after we have ventured past our own right of passage. This right of passage is defined by our narrative of home, community and education. The real conundrum is when we realize that everyone is seeking this right of passage. The friction begins.
Your comments ring with truth. Our struggle to establish security within our existence comes at a cost, when we take our own we may be removing someone else's.
This would establish that each individual would need to evolve into a greater set of "rules" as @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee has presented here. This is what the 60's were all about, breaking free of these rules. Can we put the cat back in the bag?
This discussion, as with all of Dr. Ali's, are intriguing and deserve some time in the sun. Your thoughts are always illuminating.02/04/2017 #54 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#53 This is a treasure of a comment dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I think this comment reinforces the great comments here by @Harvey Lloyd. Every line of this comment is a wisdom on its own.
I commented an hour ago on a buzz bt our friend @David B. Grinberg in which he highlighted the unfortunate practices of nations spending so much on wars, but so little on healthcare. Instead of bringing brains together we are separating them, if not killing them. This is accordance with your writing Manjit " Once we are at this point of evolution, our humanity beings to form with a new map and new means of translation and peace emerges from that. If war emerges from that, we are still using the old map and yet calling ourselves 21st century".
Your comment truly reflects your writing "What you are exploring here is at the forefront of human evolution in the full meaning of what evolve means". I can easily replace you with Manjit and this is the value of this splendid comment.02/04/2017 #53 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhat you are exploring here is at the forefront of human evolution in the full meaning of what evolve means. This is the domain of the few and not the many because the language of buy-sell see this thinking as a cost rather than a value. The traditional buy and sell is a traditional market and trade routes and tribal culture are a part of that deep history.
I don't assume the word emergence as a form of positive thinking, after all emergence is rooted in the word "emergency". When we move to a more evolved state, we stop relating emergency to view it as a danger, but start seeing emergency as in "emerge". Once we are at this point of evolution, our humanity beings to form with a new map and new means of translation and peace emerges from that. If war emerges from that, we are still using the old map and yet calling ourselves 21st century.
Now we are beginning to see new ways of exchanging value but in systems that value the traditional ways. It is ancient and historical legacy that fuels the modern marketplace and not evolution of our core humanity. As we evolve in our collective humanity, this value will be seen by us as highly reasoned and the way things are but what is so obvious and good for the future of humanity. This is not what a vast percentage of the world has either learned to see or are still not being taught how to see.
We will eventually get there, but just because we have open forms of networks, does not mean that networks are yet evolved.02/04/2017 #50 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#49 In the draft copy of this buzz I included a corroded image of a bolt holding a ship on water. The bolt was corroded. I opted to remove this part. Now, I wish I didn't. You idea @Harvey Lloyd "We may state a value but as we move from elementary understanding to wisdom we must remove the corrosion through learning". Yes, we may deal with the corroded bolt. We learn as we act.02/04/2017 #49 Harvey Lloyd#48 Values are something that require maintenance. We may state a value but as we move from elementary understanding to wisdom we must remove the corrosion through learning. No anchor of values is fully understood by us as in the flexibility of execution we learn, we evolve.
Yes each encounter with you is one of burning synaptic challenges. I enjoy the interface as we seek wisdom in existence.02/04/2017 #48 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#47 "We cant know the future but we can enter the future with anchored values and a flexible style of executing the present". This is my gem of the day. Somehow you remind me of my experience of insulation materials. The components are the same; the application by spraying, moulding and mixing of ingredients from two containers vary with the construction being insulated, wind (no to blow off sprayed materials), heat, wind speed are variables and dictate what insulation application to employ. Yes, we may have fixed and anchoring values , but their application may differ.
One idea that pops up what id the anchor is corroded? Oh, I feel burning charcoal falling on my head.02/04/2017 #47 Harvey Lloyd#46 An anchor is designed to be inflexible and to stay rigid. The application of the anchor can be flexible or semi-flexible. Values are something that anchor our patterns of behavior in flexible situations. I have seen values that were good but inflexible in application. This is when we get that feeling of tyranny in our group.
We cant know the future but we can enter the future with anchored values and a flexible style of executing the present.02/04/2017 #46 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#45 It was your comment @Harvey Lloyd that was the spark for me to write this buzz. So, as greatly as I appreciate your writing "One of the greatest compliments one could receive is, another can quote what you would do or say in a given situation. @Ali Anani this one swung for the fences and i believe you produced a home run" You share the pride as well.
I am moved by your insight of having positive and negative anchors. Your writing " drift. This presents us with two styles of anchors. One that clearly attaches us to a set of values and doesn't change; Another that allows the drift of these values so we may meet the needs of the moment" is hair-raising. It is fixed rules of genuine advantage that we may anchor positively. Sometimes, we tend to let the values (anchors( drift for one reason or the other. Some people would rather be killed and not compromise on them. We have many examples. May be the idea of semi-fixed enter into play. Like semi-flexible materials. I need to think more on this one. You stretch my mind again with your challenging ideas and nothing pleases probably more than finding myself in tis situation. Here I miss the feedback of our friend @Sara Jacobovici. I long for her input.02/04/2017 #45 Harvey Lloyd"They are the anchors to our development and the emergence of new habits, solid characters and opening of new horizons." "Anchors" is a boring and challenging word in a fast pace society where the need of the moment is stronger than our fundamental "purpose".
I caught a post here on a new technology that would help safe large ships that have lost power. Basically it applied a Sea Anchor, an anchor that is a underwater sail, that keeps the bow of the boat into the wind and slows the drift. This presents us with two styles of anchors. One that clearly attaches us to a set of values and doesn't change; Another that allows the drift of these values so we may meet the needs of the moment. Drifting values, after a few cycles, catches up to us, as the folks in our circles begin to see the values are customized at each setting. This raises questions from the different members of our social group concerning our real motives.
Anchored values can also offer positive or negative results as your post indicates. Good anchored values offer us a fresh start with each situation that our motives can not be explained as service to others. Our motives may not be liked but non the less will be accepted as they are consistent, focused on the success of others and represent a path that all can participate.
One of the greatest compliments one could receive is, another can quote what you would do or say in a given situation. @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee this one swung for the fences and i believe you produced a home run.

You are so blessed to go on this journey and having read about your trip a virtual experience I can only tell that I cannot wait to experience this myself. Stay blessed always.16/01/2017 #23 Aaron Skogen#21 That is a great story Paul! Good on you for getting down there! I remember working for a large food company after the Hurricane. A colleague and I came into work on a Saturday, hopped on forklifts, picked and and loaded out a few semi trailers full of donated food destined for the stadium in New Orleans. While we weren't boots on the ground there, it was wonderful to play a small role in aiding our neighbors to the south.
As far as this gift goes, I wholeheartedly agree! Thank you so much!13/01/2017 #21 Paul 🐝 Kearley@Aaron Skogen , you are going to fall in love with the people and the mission. It will challenge you and it will break your heart. Right after Hurricane Katrina I was on a mission trip to help the people of the southern US in the wake of the Hurricane. In the week I spent in Bayou la Battre, Alabama we did everything from working in a food kitchen to digging and helping people make sense of the destruction on their property and their lives. We were councillors, carpenters, caretakers and construction workers. We barely slept a wink in 7 days, and we were as energized on the last day as we were on the first day. And the people were amazingly awesome.
You have been given a gift that is priceless.13/01/2017 #20 Kevin PashukWhat an opportunity Aaron! Fascinating how your obstacles to go were removed. I am also a 'non-winner' (I got the prize for the most 'honest' golfer) so I truly appreciate the magnitude of your Heads and Tails win.

I'm excited (and admittedly a little nervous) to see where the path leads.

Thanks my friend!12/01/2017 #8 Pascal Derriengenerous souls :-) I have been to places far and wide and witnessed much misery sometimes I could help sometimes not.

I love how you used the ancient Greek terminology to describe my writing. That alone took me back to my college days and gave me pause to think about how I structure the next installment.
You know, that is part of where this leads (even though I haven't quite figured out how to get there. . .). Despite the apparent hardship, no where in the world have I witnessed so much joy and love, than I did there. It begs the question, what are we missing. . .20/03/2017 #26 Laura Mikolaitis@Aaron Skogen, you are a kind, gentle and caring human being with such a big heart. This experience has truly made an impact on you as is evidenced by your ability to share such a compelling experience and story with us here. I cannot imagine what it must be like to live in those conditions, but your ability to convey ethos, pathos, and logos in your writing helps me to understand better. Your experience is a reminder to me that little things matter just as much as the big things. It is also a reminder that faith, hope, and love prevail - even when we doubt that they do. The world works in mysterious ways and we are led to and down paths that we may question at every turn, but there is a reason. Thank you for sharing this second installment of your experience and for giving me reason to take pause.20/03/2017 #24 Aaron Skogen#19 That was exactly the sort of mixed emotions I was hoping to elicit @Shelley Brown. I am so happy you enjoyed it. If you ever want to get involved I know a group that would happily accept you :-). While most of the team I went with was from the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, we had one person from New York.

I apologize for being late getting back here. Nevertheless, I think my reply to you here would be similar to my reply to Todd. It certainly changes ones perspective!20/03/2017 #22 Aaron Skogen#17 @Todd Jones, I am so happy to know you found it relevant and that it helps put our "First World Problems" into perspective. I'm certain Haiti did more for me than I did for it. That's the nature of it though, I think. I'm reminded of this quote as I read your comment; "Nobody can discover the world for somebody else. Only when we discover it for ourselves does it become common ground and a common bond and we cease to be alone.” – Wendell Berry
Thanks again for the kind words and your thoughtful comment Todd.18/03/2017 #17 Todd JonesHi Aaron. From time to time, I try to stop and consider the trivial nature of my own problems. Articles like this are a great reminder that my challenges are really little more than inconveniences born of prosperity, and absolutely pale in comparison to what you have described above.
So goes life in America. We now spend so much time squabbling and bickering and fighting over the trifling details of politics and philosophy, that we have lost sight of matters that are truly important, and long with it, have largely abandoned our willingness to help our fellow man. It seems that our life of ease provides a fertile environment for breeding selfishness, petty conflict and hostility.
As far as I know, nobody in America has to carry water on their head just to survive. It sounds to me like a trip to Haiti would provide some much needed perspective to everyone in America, especially our politicians. Great post, and many thanks to you and your family for helping.

Comments07/03/2017 #65 siraj shaik#64 Sir @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee hats off and salute you for giving time and tagging along mentions of contributors (whether a point or paragraph or pages). About more than 2 years prior by chance saw a person contributing "likes" except for that there wasn't active activity which was for longer period, later a different approach of instances shared.. on LinkedIn updates and Twitter tweets (thoughts ran, the trends made me think, yeah some publishing will be shared soon at Amazon's shelf whether on line or on premise). It's in humane nature to get carried away, or followers to divert traffic. Some were concerned, well wishers wished.. and later there was an announcement about a publishing. And if pondered over the points in publication surely some or many (who are active on this platform, whether they are part of that publication or not I don't know. Also they might have focused on it or not, is not known to me) will find very close similarities to opinions in comment spaces they might have shared.07/03/2017 #62 siraj shaik#52 @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee the connected posts along with points (knowledge gems) strewn across by some awesome personas of high wisdom and subject matter gathered and neck-aced similar to beads put-forth makes fractures of fractals.. and you (and all those involved either as team or contributors) will hit the gong. The echo's will not be damped but generic effects and affects are like the acoustic reverberation. 1- "The bee hive structure is fractal and the expansion of comb's growth is contributed with team effort, but at some point an initiative been taken". 2- shell structure has similarity, contribution is from nature's natural impact. 3- similar everything that's by nature (not human replicated) carries the effects and affects of fractals.06/03/2017 #54 Laura MikolaitisSuch wonderful quotes, @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.

What a wonderful father teaching her to explore, to feel, to share, to be vulnerable. Once again, I do agree with you - nothing exists in isolation of another thing. We pull things apart to study them, whether that be love, or smell, or marketing - it does not matter what element we are looking at anytime, we must also look at the inter-connections with that element. So in your post - yes within love also exists fear, fear of loss, love so much that it hurts - as we talked about in our post on smell - smell does not exist in isolation - take away smell and you take away taste. And in business if we only look at one part, costs without looking at customers or benefits, or culture we make ill-informed choices. We make choices as if we are blind - and we are in a way when we ignore the inter-dependencies of what we are looking at and the consequences to other elements.02/03/2017 #39 Savvy RajSuch a heart tugging post@Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee God bless you and your lovely daughter. Sharing a few lines that felt apt here from one of my posts on love ....
Love surfaces from the depth of emotions
As true love is eternal
Endless love a gift of grace
What a blessing it truly is!27/02/2017 #36 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#35 Thank you my dear friend @🐝 Fatima G. Williams and I shall share an old photo of mine soon. Sara is beautiful physically, but her real beauty is her humanity. She is very emotional to the poor. She is so determined. You know that she can speak fluent TUrkish even though she had never attended a TUrkish class. She s supposed to take a course on Turkish language while on her scholarship. However; she passed the Turkish Level exam and the university waived off this course for her.
I am so happy that you referred to @CityVP 🐝 Manjit comment because he moved my heart with it.27/02/2017 #35 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#28 Sara is gifted to have a wonderful dad like you and you to have a her likewise. Stay blessed both of you :)
I remember saying this before She is so beautiful. I wonder how you looked when you were younger @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee View more#28 Sara is gifted to have a wonderful dad like you and you to have a her likewise. Stay blessed both of you :)
I remember saying this before She is so beautiful. I wonder how you looked when you were younger @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. It's time we saw some younger pictures of you although we love the present you :) :) I'm inquisitive to know how Sara turned out to be so lovely and beautiful. I'm smelling a buzz inspired by an old photograph :)
I also hear so much heart in Mr Manjt's words "We don't need words to describe love - it is already encoded in our DNA and in the flow of meaning into and out of heart." Close26/02/2017 #34 Sara Jacobovici#32 I am grateful to @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee for bringing your comment @CityVP 🐝 Manjit to my attention. In all of your work and comments, I have heard the wisdom and passion, commitment and dedication, intensity and determination and protectiveness! I hear a different tone of voice here Manjit. And a different pace. I hear your heart. This is truly a touching piece of core communication. You are very generous to share it. Thank you.26/02/2017 #33 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#32 Every word in your comment filled my heart with joy dear friend @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. Absolutely, I meant t that this buzz be "imprinted with the face of my daughter". You captured my emotions with this great observation.
I tried to run some water to make the equations alive. I refer to your writing "leaving just bare bones of mathematical equations - whereas the mathematics of beauty are in our children". I live what you say here. Yes, we need to make mathematics more of beauty than just dried and lifeless equations. This is one reason many people are fearful of math.
I tag dear @Sara Jacobovici to bring her attention to your mention of her.26/02/2017 #32 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThis is quite a sensational buzz dear Ali Anani that is absolutely special for the simple reason that you share within it the most precious aspect of your life. I can say that without need of a single equation to describe emotional states, because this buzz is imprinted with the face of your daughter.
Yes, you have mentioned Sara before and these were memorable associations also because it reinforced just one more aspect of why Sara Jacobovici is an important spirit that has touched your soul outside your immediate family.
I have shared pictures with me and my grandson online but that I did because 2 year old's grow up fast and they physically change and this change of facial recognition preserves the idea of privacy - and I say idea - because in this world where technology can parse even the semantic constructs of each of our paragraphs, the only real privacy in this world is silence. In reality this privacy battle is being lost.
I do think Chip Conley has done a nice job with the Emotional Equations but it is only as nice as what our educational system has done to Mathematics. What our education system has done is rip away the beauty in mathematics leaving just bare bones of mathematical equations - whereas the mathematics of beauty are in our children - in the very moment cell division begins to occur and the mathematical fractals start producing life.
The mathematics of beauty are far cry from the mathematics of answers. We have been taught in our educational system to look for answers and not to appreciate. So it is I appreciate the picture of your daughter because the respect is life itself and that is when we don't need words to describe love - it is already encoded in our DNA and in the flow of meaning into and out of heart.26/02/2017 #31 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#29 The exchange of comments with you dear @Emilia M. Ludovino and on your wonderful buzz of today inspired me with the idea of my next buzz. I am grateful to you.
I take this opportunity to invite readers of this buzz to read your buzz because it is profound.
PEACEFUL MEDITATION to TAME ANXIETY
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@emilia-ludovino/peaceful-meditation-to-tame-anxiety26/02/2017 #30 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#29 Thank you dear @Emilia M. Ludovino and your compassionate comment is music in my heart. Sara is currently on a semester-long scholarship to the MIddle East Technical University in Ankara. I haven't yet informed her about this buzz, but once I do she too shall love your comment.26/02/2017 #28 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeYes, yess and Yes- I say to your comment. Sara didn't stop loving me. In fact, she loved me more. However; her hate of me traveling abroad, her love to find me near to her and her fear of me getting hurt while away caused her fear. Like you wrote " IMO once we love someone unconditionally there's no turning back of that love. It's like a toothpaste squeezed out of its tube". May be Sara's worries at the time (as she was less than five years old when she expressed her innocent passion) was the tube would soon deplete of its toothpaste.
I admire your mind and wisdom dear Fatima.26/02/2017 #27 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsDear Ali Anani You've touched base on a very important topic Love. A emotion that is so easy to kindle and develop but so difficult to stop using.
Do you really think that your daughter can stop loving you. I don't think so. IMO once we love someone unconditionally there's no turning back of that love. It's like a toothpaste squuezed out of it's tube.
Love is pure and eternal and forever.
We may stop talking or meeting or even disliking a person we love due to their actions. But deep down the heart that loved will always love them even after death.
This is my experience with love. And this is such a wonderful buzz. I think when one starts to feel a like the way Sara did in the case of any relationship. I believe or feel a little distance between the two people will do the trick. I call it giving space to each other. Creating the distance will actually bring us closer than before. And that fear finally disappears. After all Fear is NOT EQUAL to Love As the weightage of love has the power to drown the other.
I love Louis Chart on Love - Beautiful.26/02/2017 #26 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee@Sara Jacobovici extended some of the ideas expressed in this buzz by writing a truly worthy buss on "Feeling Numb"
It is a great read. Thank you Sara for building a castle out of few building ideas.26/02/2017 #23 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#18 @Jeet Sarkar- yes, the reactions are complex and they are not as simple as they appear on paper. Not only they might go through a complex transition, but also we might not know the reactants. Which emotion reaction with another emotions. II said that the equations main value is their helping us to think deeper. .Thank you Jeet for your deep thoughts and sharing them here

From what I understand Ceaușescu outlawed birth control leading to all these orphans. He was hanged along with his wife. Yeah, the nurses had no food to feed these babies, so they gave them blood intravenously as a nutritional substitute leading to the spread of HIV. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8427299.stm09/11/2016 #20 jesse kaellisThat's a great story, Pascal. A guy I was writing for asked me to ghost write book for his wife about the AID's epidemic there, the orphaned babies. She is Romanian, It never happened. I was reluctant. Intimidated is a better word. I thought it was beyond my scope. Great writing Pascal.08/11/2016 #19 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanQuite an interesting story @Pascal Derrien. Some of my adventures would not have been approved by my parents and I got away with most of them. In my teens, I told my parents I was staying overnight with some girlfriends, which was true but we were all in Daytona Beach and not in our respective homes. As you mentioned in one of your comments, some of our adventures could not happen today.
So I'm looking forward to more stories from our "regular guy".08/11/2016 #18 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI certainly understand that period of not being quite honest with one's parents as they wouldn't have been supportive of my ventures. It is how I got to Paris, if I would have mentioned my intentions there would have been drama. They found out when I informed them to be looking out for my visa.... as I had plans for the summer. It was disappointing to be back at college in the fall of 89....08/11/2016 #16 Pascal Derrien#13 indeed small world, I only measure now how risky or indeed borderline collectively foolish it was :-) There is a strong Romanian community in Ireland too and I always have a soft spot for them.

They're not even remotely interested at this point but in a few years I suspect they'll love it - or their kids will in decades to come when I am worm food!08/11/2016 #13 Sara JacoboviciHow cliche can I get when I say, "What a small world!". Here I am on beBee reading your story when you could have been handing a parcel to either my Uncle, Aunt or cousin! Although I wasn't born in Romania, my first language is Romanian because both my parents were born there (Iasi). My mother learned French at school and because Romanian is a Latin language, when I was learning French going to school in Montreal, I was able to pick it up very easily. I learned about Romania and France's close ties from my mother. I was able to visit my family in Bucharest both during and post Ceausescu. We were glued to the TV and waiting hours on the telephone trying to make contact with the family in Bucharest. It was a very nerve racking 36 hours until we heard my cousin's voice on a very weak connection but letting us know they were safe, traumatized by being too close to the action, but safe. So I owe you a big thank you @Pascal Derrien for putting yourself at risk to help my family!

Even though I hadn't met you when I wrote the book, I feel in a certain way that I imagined you when I was thinking of my ideal reader.

Take my word and expand this idea into a buzz and it shall be very worthy "nature honestly reflect to our faculty irrespective of the strata we belong". I know you shall.13/02/2017 #10 debasish majumderlovely metaphor sir @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! when one aspire to quench his thirst,the drops are insignificant, his consumption to satiate is fundamental. equally, adhere to flower is chiefly depending upon one, how long he wish to be satiated by the fragrance, flower won't determine it. and thirdly, forest provides canopy to sensible faculty who are craving for it to soothe himself. besides, from a single plant, we induced to assume forest, where our greed for resources trigger us to explore its floor, our greed to exploit it for our benefit. now, the question is how we are being moved and influenced by their apparent presentation. though nature honestly reflect to our faculty irrespective of the strata we belong, but, we cannot rule out the conglomeration we observe among human beings are primarily determined by the basis alignment if interest and economic platform, how long we will be associated to serve the common interests. whether single or the bunch of roses, i guess, hardly make any difference, as long we are focus on it we be satiated by our desired purposes. however, intriguing post indeed sir. enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

Dear Cyndi, my condolences to you and your family on your recent loss.
At times like this I find there is solace in those who share a similiar experience, especially a daughter honoring her father. We do that in whatever way is right for us. @🐝 Fatima G. Williams wrote a personal blog about her father which is worth sharing again
They say time is medicine ; I now believe it's a myth
This is a time for sisters to share, and for us to stand back and let two daughters speak in private, for in these conversations there is a knowing and a feeling that goes beyond what anyone can say in their respects and the all the solemn words of comfort.

I have a big, big family - they are integrated, they are noisy, every weekend there is little difference between a party and the family as they are. In these moments I get to spend time by myself and I am alone with my thoughts - and as soon as I have finished this, I am back into the communal spirit. Family is important to me, but privacy even more so - in that regard I am different to all those around me - they like being together and when the girls who married come home on the weekend - the noise volumes go up.
And then there is these times when I get to be alone with my thoughts to let them flow. I get to be with my family as I grow. What can there possibly be anything in life greater than that.
Do you know what I like about Sara?
She has similiar inclinations - and I know that, I know that for sure - not here at beBee but out there back in Israel.
I know it in the story of Ida
I know it in the story of Joseph
Those two blogs stand shoulder above anything else she has written because she has touched upon the two most important people in the world. A mother. A father.
It is not her intellect or her ability to recognize the human spirit - it is who she loves more than anything in the world.
That kind of heart - rest assured. I know it. I honour it. The same is true of @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee - and these hearts are what I call greatness.11/02/2017 #53 Cyndi wilkinsWhat an honor you have bestowed upon such a deserving "Force to be reckoned with" @CityVP 🐝 Manjit...

"Depth to cognitive capability"... OKAY...This woman sets my brain afire!...."Sara is in flow when she enters conversations.".... Not only is she in the flow, she commands that you be too...It took me a good twelve hours of restful sleep to answer to one of her recent inquiries...@Sara Jacobovici and @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee stand alone in their own right...They are two incredible powerhouses on this platform...Personally, I would love to see them pair with other authors who could greatly benefit from their guidance...Not that they do not compliment each other...But the energy generated by their combined circuitry might blow a fuse around here;-)10/02/2017 #49 🐝 Fatima G.

- 05/02/2017I dedicate this buzz to Dr. Ali Anani and the shared journey of personal growth, which I know Sara Jacobovici would join me in whole hearted support, both of us have been enriched by his presence both at LinkedIn and here at beBee. re: @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee @Sara Jacobovici
In the early days before Ali Anani and Sara Jacobovici got to know me at LinkedIn, I engaged in a way of writing that is absolutely not what anyone should do if they are more invested in maintaining a personal brand, which was streams of consciousness. I would write furiously and without inhibition, inspired by the way one writer wrote his work. His name was Jack Kerouac.
As I now look further into stream of consciousness writing, what seemed so natural to let forth at LinkedIn and before in other networks, streams of consciousness apparently has a far greater and interesting background than I had ever realized - because I did not study "streams of consciousness" I merely did it. When I go back now and read these streams I must admit that sometimes even I don't understand what poured forth but I know that it came from my consciousness, and thus it had far greater metacognitive value i.e. [the act of thinking about my thinking].
Now I am in a position to study it, it makes for fascinating reading :10 Writers Who Use Stream of Consciousness Better than Anybody Elseqwiklit.com By May Huang A narrative technique that has perplexed and fascinated readers for centuries, the stream of consciousness technique has been used by many writers to trace the seamless (and oft...
Comments05/02/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#3 Dear Pamela [ @Pamela 🐝 Williams ] the chief reason I dedicate this to @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee is that when I was pouring out comments that were as much a page or page-half in length at LinkedIn, he was always appreciative, because he could see that there was a thinker behind those screeds. Ultimately as a writing style, it is a different type of excellence that can move it from brainfart to braincraft. Let things flow but be conscious that you have let things flow. I received greater criticism when I wrote a one-line blog called One under the name "Mark Zorro"
The One Blog "Mark Twain wasn't Mark Twain - Mark Zorro isn't Mark Zorro" 
http://bit.ly/2km1wyU05/02/2017 #8 Pamela 🐝 Williams#5 Sara, I think I've mentioned before my nephew who deals with adult onset schitzophrenia. He at times goes into these long speeches that at the time make no sense. After time my sister will realize it did have meaning. Like you say; it's their own language and like any language its up to us to learn and communicate in their language, to break down the language barriers that separate us.05/02/2017 #5 Sara JacoboviciCouldn't be more honoured to be part of this Triad; @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, yourself, @CityVP 🐝 Manjit and myself. Your post and share are true gifts to the readers and learners.
In my clinical work, you often see individuals with severe mental health challenges writing or talking incessantly; literally streams and streams of consciousness. The majority of mental health professionals would identify this as a symptom of thought disorders. I have always experienced this as an expression of their thoughts, a language I needed to learn, to understand. Once I read it and heard it, as their expression and communication of their consciousness, their experiences, it all made sense! In the hands of writers, this is a technique. In the hands of those who are suffering, this is a lifeline.05/02/2017 #3 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsI didnt know this wrriting style had a name but it is how I write and I think why my words sometimes raise a lot of questions. I can also see why you dedicated this to Ali. He does have the gift of letting thoughts flow and is able to share in words that inspire our own musings. Great share Manjit05/02/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#1 When it comes to studying, it is important to differentiate that we don't study it in the moment but we must study or at least appreciate it afterwards - that is why I put a huge stress mark on developing the skills of metacognition.
Otherwise stream of consciousness becomes an exercise in lazy thinking, temporal novelty or just downright mediocrity. The laziness that it affords (where laziness is intelligent) is to free the tyranny of control, but the mining of it, that is when the work begins - especially if the origin is not from a well-spring of experience.
The great writers had already absorbed (one can also say stolen in a good way) a great body and variety of experiences and then they have so much that laying it out as a stream of consciousness is what the 10 writers link is about - so what they pour forth in gusto already has a source which is rich in depth. Here I do put the emphasis on "great writers" for at that level streams of consciousness is equal to their wonderous talent.05/02/2017 #1 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI am extremely privileged to have this lovely buzz dedicated to me. I find the experience of partnering with you and dear @Sara Jacobovici extremely rich.
I find that writing with the flow of positive energy and attitude lead a writer to write and keep his flow. We don't need to study this as it becomes a natural flow.
I take this opportunity to thank you for who you are Manjit. I learnt from you and the proof is in record. Only earlier today I published a buzz that was inspired by a buzz of you and dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams.
I am honored to be associated with great humans like you all are.. Shared

You always put me in trouble to reciprocate. I know what you're saying is exactly what you're feeling. I have developed a sort of feminish or childish habit. My eyes get filled whenever I hear something like that. Are you exactly feeling my feelings? I'm sure of your prayers, and prayers of all my so beautiful friends. Wish you all the blessings!28/01/2017 #48 Qamar Ali Khan#41 @Dean Owen! You're such a wonderful man and a wise and true friend. I always highly value what you say and write. You have such a rich exposure, and you're so kind to recognize, appreciate, and remember positiveness and sincerity. I'm glad I know you as my friend! Thank you :-))28/01/2017 #47 Qamar Ali Khan#40 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich! This is so exciting! Why I put these questions on your table? Because I knew you're the right person who knows what I mean, who understands some unspoken words, who has all the inner insight to get to the bottom. I'll be waiting to appreciate your marvelous effort.28/01/2017 #45 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#44 Rightly said @Mohammed Sultan The idea is to spread this to all the corners of the world.
But the most important thing is that the people who join know the purpose of giving and receiving in order to build their brand personally and professionally.
Thank you 🤗28/01/2017 #44 Mohammed SultanThat's great @ Fatima Williams,in addition to the real feeling in-house and among beBee family members we need to extend love and beBee family spirit outdoor.In principle when beBee platform is grown,the more competitors are also grown and the span of your differentiation becomes shorter.So,we need outdoor endorsements.The beauty of beBee platform begins when your competitors start to endorse you.
In the imagination zone of beBee many trees are grown and we have to use them in the the right way and for the right purpose.We have to use the imagination of all bees to stretch the platform to the non-users .The imagination which will come up with outdoor ideas and market insight about beBee that can disrupt their habits and break their daily routine.We want them to recognize how to build personal brands with more feelings and more satisfying depth of understanding on beBee.28/01/2017 #42 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#32 Such a nice compliment to all listed @🐝 Fatima G. Williams! I want to go out on a limb and remind @Qamar Ali Khan how much so many of us have missed him. I also would like to say, I hope whatever you are going through passes sooner than not. I will keep you in my prayers and I hope we continue to see you as you are able. You have always been a beautiful light that shines brightly on all of us. We are also here for you!!28/01/2017 #40 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#36 It actually isn't so strange at all, just uncommon. If you will allow me, Qamar, I will take the action item to write a buzz to answer your very important questions. It will take me some time to coalesce these feelings into words, but it makes sense to me.
I've got the insights, but this is a challenge for words! Thank you tremendously for formulating these questions so poignantly!27/01/2017 #36 Qamar Ali Khan#34 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich! It's so strange! The people who really love each other the most have never met personally. I take it as something a Divine miracle. I don't know you personally. In fact, I don't know anybody of my so beloved friends personally. I don't know about your personalities, your life, your practical behaviors, and anything; and so is true about myself. But what is that which has built and deepened this relationship, and which is not allowing us not to think about each other? How this love is built and developed in a virtual way? What's the main cause? Why I keep remembering you and all? If we could analyze, we have so less in common. We have everything different. But we miss each other. I see nothing like this. Deb! You have something in you that force me and others to feel you. You're something different. Help me to find the hidden secret behind this love-bond between all of us.27/01/2017 #35 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanI feel truly blessed to know you, Fatima.

Comments27/01/2017 #19 Sara Jacobovici#17 Your response or "comment" dear @Deb 🐝 Helfrich continues to reflect you and your ability to communicate and express your thoughts and feelings in a truly unique way. I echo Wendy Weiner Runge's words: "narrow down what the world needs [you] to do, and focus on creating the business that will support [you] sharing [your] value with others."
Thank you for your kind and generous words. I am grateful for our collaboration and engagement. Wishing you all the best!27/01/2017 #18 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#12 Dear Fatima [ @🐝 Fatima G. Williams ] that panegyric is a part of my "Orange Bee" hive

https://www.bebee.com/content/81604527/01/2017 #17 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWhat an incredible honor, @Sara Jacobovici. You will not be surprised to find out this buzz arrives at a truly synchronisitic moment! Wendy Weiner Runge was simultaneously suggesting to me on the phone that I needed to ask people what value they find in my comments, so that I can narrow down what the world needs me to do, and focus on creating the business that will support me sharing my value with others.
The admiration is truly mutual. I am always joyful when I start to read one of your articles, as I am certain you will enhance my energy via your carefully crafted words and stunningly accurate ideas.
You are someone with a profound knowing and you share it so generously and with so much willingness to engage with whatever arises.
I am so grateful that we get to collaborate in comments sections for the simple pleasure of the energy that is exchanged and then stored electronically so that many others can fuel their own ideas, feelings, and actions.26/01/2017 #14 Cyndi wilkins"The words are mostly familiar and yet I rarely get deja vu. My sense of deja ecris is significantly less intense. Until, that is, I reread the entire post and then I seen to be better able to relocate my own words as a response to what the author has written.
I find this fascinating. Anyone else aware of cross-pollinating with a prior self via old comments and/or posts?"
Hmmm, how the heck did I miss this comment...I love the expression "cross-pollinating with a prior self."

I always try to change my back stabbers in getting to like me by doing the exact opposite of what they do. This guilt makes them turn over a new leaf.

You do manage to navigate DC without a bruise 😀🌷🌷A tulip for you and the Mrs 😇13/12/2016 #9 Donna-Luisa EversleyAs I was writing this post, I realise there are many divisive folks who hide behind smiles, etc. Evil comes in many guises. In the Harry Potter series good will always overcome evil, and so too good dreams come when you realise the light will shine brightly to cover the evil unveiled.13/12/2016 #7 David B. GrinbergHi DL, I hope this finds you doing well and enjoying the holiday season.
Regarding your statement: "Will you smile while stabbing another in the back? Do bystanders even care when the bus rolls over another brother / sister?" Well, unfortunately, that seems to depressingly be par for the course here in the Washington, DC-area. I assume that it's similar in other big metropolitan areas where folks are overly stressed out and have a poor work-life balance, if any.
Thank goodness for the holiday season which tends to bring out the best in some of these stressed out and angry people, even though there will always be the proverbial Grinch around. Please be well and keep buzzing!12/12/2016 #2 Deb 🐝 HelfrichIt is undeniably the case that our dreams and nightmares reflect the environment around us, @Donna-Luisa Eversley. And I make it my mission to pass along the kindness and support necessary for sweet dreams to occur every chance I get.
The question I find myself focusing on is the opposite one, though - what do you stand for when everyone is watching? Can you state a harsh truth, as you see it, with the greatest good in mind?
