    "Language alone can act as a bonding tool with grand harmony!" Most definitely, language is our grandest achievement. And we do need to stay aware enough to use it for harmony.

    @Cyndi wilkins . Really love the graphic accompanying this post.

    "Taking a more stoic approach by falling victim to our circumstances" is a common misinterpretation of a philosophical movement with a history dating back to Zeno of Citium around 300 B.C. This misrepresents a stoic as unemotional or indifferent to pain, pleasure, grief or joy and simply acepting the world as it is - just taking it. "Live according to nature" is one of its key principles. Socrates said "I am a citizen of the world" which is a strong statement of affinity with humanity. My own favourite is Epictetus. He considered it a a basic fact about human beings was our hatred of being deceived. We find it very difficult to accept as true what we clearly see to be false.

    "being the very best version of ourselves" is a close match to the stoic aspiration.

    "The first step in defeating a problem is in taking responsibility for our own role in creating it." I don't quite agree with this. There are times when problems are the manifestations of others. Most times I just belly-up in those situations. Better than beating a dead horse or pounding a brick wall.

    #44 Thank you for contributing to the discussion @HervΓ© Sabattier. What I find very powerful about the Viktor Frankl quote is that, for me, it says that we always have a choice and that is in how we respond to anything. Our circumstances or environment may influence or restrict our freedom and our choices, but because we are left with the ultimate choice of how we respond, that means we are always free. So, in this way, making no choice is still a choice we freely can make.

    Thank you Sara, your reply has made me reconsider my original comment. As someone who doesn't believe in absolutes it would be fairer to say if offering choices I would only offer ones I was happy with, if I am offered choices I am not comfortable with I either decline or negotiate. As to illusion I take your point and agree with your comments on it. However something which comes to mind is the illusionist/magician, who make people believe they have made a choice. The choices we make are often knowingly or unknowingly influenced by others. #34

    #28 Double synchronicity @CityVP 🐝 Manjit: 1- I just finished responding to @Laura Mikolaitis's comment by saying, "...we need the power of choice to help us identify new inroads...", great line, leaves me with much to think about. So definitely agree, " Power within the choice is the choice." 2 - In my writing on choice, on my rough draft, I cut and pasted the following from Deuteronomy Chapter 30:19, " This day, I call upon the heaven and the earth as witnesses [that I have warned] you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. You shall choose life, so that you and your offspring will live." Agreed again, "Choose life".

    #20 Thank you @John Rylance for your comment. I'd like to respond to two points I read in it. One, "Never offer someone a choice you can't live with." Has me thinking....it's a sensitive point. It makes me think that if the individual makes a choice you can't live with then that will definitely influence the future of the relationship. Two, I can so relate to the frustration of the choices with strings or limited choices, but I am not sure I agree with choice as an illusion because I can still choose whether to get the car or not, or go to another dealer, or wait for an alternative. Not happy about the circumstances, but the choice is very real and still mine.

The river rafting was to me the most intimidating activity – underwater not knowing how long and which way is up; a huge fright.

    It is important to listen to our bodies but sometimes the brain does not want to cooperate no matter how hard one tries. I think these are vital tools to utlize with young children. Maybe if they learn to practice these skills when they are young, their coping skills will be so much better than someone of my age. I'm still working on a lot of this. Some days it works great, others not so much. But, I'm a work in progress and I do believe we are capable of change no matter what age... it can just take so much longer when our brains were programmed in a certain way and we reacted to that programming for years, if that makes sense? Great peice!

    This is so true. When we constantly dwell on things that hurt or angered us, it will keep in a negative frame of mind. But when we choose to think about the more positive things that we want to do or just come our way, it will keep us from going down into a pit that is hard to climb out of.

    As @Deb Helfrich says - it is s book to experience not just read - and it is all about what I call our next step to integrate thinking with sensing the language of our body - a language we have neglected as we have been so focussed on thinking as if it only comes from
    Our mind- brain. I believe the more we develop these capacities we will have another exponential shift in our expanding awareness and potential. I look forward to connecting.

    "Listen to your body" This is as simple and as complex as life gets, @Laura Donnelly. Our wisdom is our body, but as a modern society we have build so many structures and habits that ignore our bodies that we never even take a few seconds to listen to the constant dialogue our bodily sensations are trying to engage us in.

    Hi Laura First off Welcome to beBeelandπŸ€—πŸπŸ€—

    Great buzz on listening to our body and controlling out thoughts and it's actions. @Laura Donnelly. I am reading a book called Trust your senses by @Deb🐝 Lange Where she talks about listening and trusting our sense. She talks about our inner dialogue and how to create inner freedom. I am halfway through as it's pretty intense and a wonderful book.
    Choice plays a very big Vital factor here ! Do we choose to listen to what our body is saying?

    Great advice here, Laura, with which I agree. I also concur with the comments of @Phil Friedman below, who is a very wise man. I've shared this buzz in the hives, "Lifestyles" and "beBee in English" and "Bee Inspired." I'm also following you now, Laura, and hope you can follow back. Keep buzzing!

    Laura Donnelly, who teaches dance -- and who teaches how to learn from dance -- makes a fascinating point about being more aware of the interactive loop between feelings and thought. Well worth a read. Cheers!

    DisabilityI’ve been disabled in one way or other all my life. For the decades my Multiple Sclerosis went undiagnosed, they said the periods of time my MS drove to my bed were disabling bouts of depression--that the progressive numbing of my body was nothing....

    Thanks for this discussion. There should be no discrimination on persons who have any form of disability. However, yes, worldwide there is discrimination. Think the persons who condemn , laugh, chastise, or seek to belittle persons differently abled are themselves soulfully disabled of compassion and kindness.
    Thanks @Joyce 🐝 Bowen keep up the good fight. Power of the pen!

    All people should be judged by their ability, merits and God given talents, including people with disabilities. Any myths, fears and stereotypes about people with disabilities is reprehensible. This stigma must end, including on issues of mental health. Regardless of whether a person has a physical or mental disability, again, it's their ability that should be the main focus, as well as their character and moral fiber. Anything else is simply superficial and shortsighted thinking.

    @Joyce 🐝 Bowen, you are darn right you have worth! I'm sorry it took so long to get a diagnosis and you were mis-diagnosed with depression for so long. Dr's tend to do that to women who present with a subset of symptoms. That is something the Medical Profession really needs to work on and change. As for work, I think you might find with your knowledge and determination you could possibly do online work, become an advocate online, or whatever it is you think you are not only capable of doing but have the desire to do! I admire you.

    I have not really commented before because someone very very very close to me - my one and only child has problems of some magnitude to him. Fluid filled cavity/cysts on the brain and spinal cord and all its attendant problems. Diagnosed at the age 16 just when he had been made captain of his rugby team. Neurosurgery and then at 18 metal work to support his spine, since then a lot of hospital time. As a mum you want to wrap him up and hit anyone who touches him. He went to uni and worked as barman to pay for that - I know what price he pays for every little achievement and when he is home this is evident from the empty packet after empty packet of pain killers that comes out of his luggage. He then did a Masters and got distinction - apparently this is fairly unusual....he is now writing up his research for his Doctorate. I am constantly astounded at the drive he has to do what he wants and the fight in him humbles me daily. When I read your posts I detect the same spirit in you and find that I want to hug you and make it better/easier for you but I can't - but I can tell you that I am in awe of your strength and the world is a better because of you!

    You know that I get this! I find myself at hanging off a branch since Trump's budget was announced. I raised my children with the help of social supports as opposed to family supports. I am very scared of losing my Medicaid for attendant care and therefore a nursing facility is my next option. I believe there are so many misconceptions of what being disabled means, especially for women. I am sickened that I worked and raised a family while getting a doctorate and now my resources have dwindled because I placed my kids first and now it's time to be thrown away. I resist writing about because there are so many myths about positivity. Yes, I think that is essential but I found being realistic and focused on a solution based mentality works best for me. I am glad you are here and I have a very good friend who has severe MS and she hold's doctorate in nursing. We need to find each other. I recommend you go to #PushLiving they have some great articles and always are looking for great bloggers. I appreciate your post and I can only wish for some more exposure.

    These childhood developmental issues are underlying just about every societal ill we profess to not know how to address. I have said it recently in a number of contexts, but there is magic in growing new humans free from childhood trauma. Everything will be changed by that generation.

    And it isn't necessarily all that complex for those of us who got built via prejudice, judgement, greed, and separatism - hard work to dig down and find the seeds, but a little love fertilizes them into flowers that no longer limit our perception of what our life must be like.

    Many thanks for sharing your important insights, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman @debasish majumder @Andrew Books. One thing's for sure: I had a lot more energy in my early 20s (lol). However, it really comes down to motivation and how badly one wants to achieve the goal they set, regardless of how far away it may appear at first.
    As a Gen Xer, I think it's incumbent to mentor Millennials and their younger demographic cohort, Gen Z -- similar to how older generations mentored us. Thank you Boomers and WWII generation. (aka "The Greatest Generation" per journalist Tom Brokaw's book). The results of mentoring someone may indeed be game changing for those being mentored and also a fulfilling for the mentors. It's always nice to give something back.

    I love this story @David B. Grinberg. Agree, hard work and determination do pay off. I would have never made it as a Respiratory Technician (no college), OJT- had it not been for certain mentors who taught me so much, things I never forgot and also encouraged the human side to surface when needed because it's such a stressful job. That job set the stage for many things in my life. Thanks for sharing your story, these stories inspire.

    I have had a few mentors throughout my career. I must say I learned a lot from them and carry their teachings with me today. Much of what I learned was specific to the insurance industry, however, there was also learning of a more personal nature. For example, how to do what I want to do with me. I was my biggest problem after my husband passed away.

    So I buried myself in my work and listened intently to what was taught, This was my way of blotting out depressing thoughts. One of my mentors was one of my managers. I learned a lot from her and we went through some trying times when the portion of the company we worked for was bought out. She hired me, mentored me, promoted me and was the manager that performed my interview when I retired.

    I love your story, David, and I agree mentoring is a great tool in helping others learn.

    #11 I think you're spot on with your ten point plan, David. Fifteen years ago I met the love of my life, and she has been my greatest mentor. I've had many, but she has been my anchor to all of the others. I'm a young fifty-five year old who recently obtained his dream of receiving a college degree. I was a terrible student in high school, whose only concern was to be done with sitting in a chair staring at a chalkboard. In my forties my wife saw my desire to learn and suggested I go to college and pursue my dream. At forty seven I enrolled in college and excelled to the top of my class obtaining a BA in sociology. Persistence, perseverance, and patience were my three P's. My wife taught me that anything is possible if you want it bad enough.

    We probably wouldn't agree on politics, David. But I respect your accomplishments, writing skills, and tenacity. It's never too late to try something new, and your ten point plan is an awesome roadmap to get there. Well done.

    But now, before the big leap in my profession amazingly she is back to guide me , well on the phone for now but things work out beautifully.

    Awesome stories @David B. Grinberg! I've had several great mentors over the years in my various careers. One of my first mentors is Dr Kim Bishop whilst I was studying at Kings College. Her humour, work ethic and kindness were truly inspirational. I used the only in-mail LinkedIn allowed me and got in touch last year. She's still amazing! One of my more recent mentors is a chap called Bob Percival (Uncle Bob) who is 82! His energy and boundless enthusiasm for life are really inspiring. Believe it or not his father knew my father in the early 50's in Hoylake. Uncle Bob's father ran the swimming club and my father was one of the top swimmers there and a lifeguard!

That is why you deserve to feel that because you didn't allow the reality to immobilize you and that you actually "moved" to make an impact on the system's and individuals' lives can not be minimized. All the power to you Joyce. No regrets for what ifs. Each action that you took has had a ripple effect that you may not be able to know about but rest assured that it did occur.

    Unfortunately, Joyce, often those who are empowered to watchdog those who are supposed to be taking care of the defenseless (usually children) are themselves more interested in not making waves or more work for themselves than in doing what they are charged with doing. And just as often there are only two alternatives for redress or prevention of further hurt: either the baseball bat or the pen. I am glad you choose the latter.

    Interesting post @Sara Jacobovici "If the education system prepares us for work, the entertainment system alleviates us, to create a rest-bite from work"
    I'm not convinced that the education system is preparing students for work, therefore, the distraction. If you have ADD or ADHD the rest-bite from work is "at work". Can we teach "the artist who see's a different facet of human existence" to exist without themselves being labeled.

    #19 Perhaps, Sara, I did not make myself clear. There are more than one theory of mind. Moreover, theories are reflective at what are considered a transcendental level. The "recognition" you describe might, but just might be considered one possible theory of mind, although I would personally classify it as an assertion concerning the role of perception in discerning the thoughts of others. In my lexicon, theories are much more than a single statement. Wikipedia is a bit wanting here, and I prefer the Encyclopedia of Philosophy: "Theory of Mind is the branch of cognitive science that investigates how we ascribe mental states to other persons and how we use the states to explain and predict the actions of those other persons. More accurately, it is the branch that investigates mindreading or mentalizing or mentalistic abilities.". Cheers!

    #18 I hope you gentlemen don't mind if I but in here, @Phil Friedman and @CityVP 🐝 Manjit...."but" I will. From my understanding, theory of mind relates to our ability to hold the reality that not everyone thinks the way we do. In this way, our ability to "make sense" or read the thoughts of others through nonverbal cues, such as facial expressions, behaviours or actions, is crucial.
    Phil Friedman
    03/03/2017 #18 Phil Friedman
    Manjit, in the main, I concur with what you are saying. But I should like to suggest that perhaps you make what is called a "type error" when you say that, "All people possess what is called theory of mind, our ability to interpret the thoughts of others through facial expressions or behaviours or actions ..."

    A "theory of mind" is an intellectual construct at a transcendental level above our actions (including mental actions) when we interpret the thoughts of others on whatever basis. That is, a Theory of Mind is something of a different type than an employed method. The former is reflective, while the latter is an action.

    For example, I can train to hit a pitched baseball, without having a governing theory of motion or perception. And I suggest it is important to avoid confusing the two planes. IMO and with all due respect. Cheers!

    03/03/2017 #15 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    Thank you Sara I view a part of this buzz to be the regard we have for each other and I honour that most. The word comment comes from the practice of commentator. Commentators were people invited to newspapers to provide their opinions. Commentary in newspapers is in reality the original user-generated content. The commentator lived in the mindset of the broadcast world where attention was scarce.

    Today attention is abundant, indeed it is saturated beyond belief, and instead of us being more cognoscente about the way we work and how we are a part of a transformation in the way of work - we continue to find ways of achieving attention, so thinking quickly become content and in the content we remain commentators rather than thinkers. The true value in this buzz is the exchange between you and @Ali Anani - the thinking relationship between both of you is extraordinary. So when Javier in his comment #8 calls this relationship "a powerful energy", it is exactly that.

    This powerful energy is not a broadcast but a relationship that I am privileged to witness. The word comment no longer does justice to people who think. We personally should be given the option to name this section of the buzz, through a dropdown box that has different names i.e. a choice of comments, thinkers, discussion, debate, reflection etc - so when Juan says thanks in comment #14 - to me that is what I am thankful for - that what happens under the buzz is not business as usual, they are not comments - but a person who writes the buzz should choose what kind of response they hope for. My choice is "Thinkers".

    #10 So much so @Ali Anani, that I have already started writing the buzz based on this incredible energy that you sparked with your buzz! You write: "Now, the idea of a new buzz emerges "The fractal of Synchronicity" and the unintended rules that leads to its emergence." WOW! Indeed! It's not a coincidence that @Javier 🐝 beBee used the words "powerful energy" in his comment.

    #7 So, I feel the driver to share my response to your comment here as well dear @Sara Jacobovici:
    Absolutely correct you are dear @Sara Jacobovici. You wrote a lot about meaning and now you have attached meaning to adaptation (or vice versa) and a new meaning for meaning just emerged. I know what your next buzz shall be about, and if not then I have lost synchronicity with you. Goodness no.

    A buzz that lead to a comment that led to sharing a comment as a buzz which again drew comments and new buzzes. The fractal of synchronicity is emerging. Now, the idea of a new buzz emerges "The fractal of Synchronicity" and the unintended rules that leads to its emergence. WOW! I feel my mind blowing with excitement.

    #5 You ask important questions @Ali Anani. I think our synchronicity is having us dialogue across buzzes. As you were writing this one, I was writing on your buzz, what I think is appropriate to repeat here: You wrote: "one line of your comment (Sara) says a lot "I think we are faced with the challenge of learning a new language in our new environment". You invoke a great idea: adaptation requires new languages with new ideas. This is a powerful observation" I wrote: "Your highlighting and expansion of the line, has inspired me (as always Dr. Ali) to think; since language is our way of communicating meaning, than adaptation is linked with meaning. Adaptation can only be successful when we understand what it is we are adapting to." This is my response to your questions. I think beBee is a new environment in which we have been able to meet and find a common meaning in our dialogue, (professional and personal) and within these boundaries develop an understanding and mutual respect. I am moved by you reminding me that the world can look at us as an example for good. And to return to your business wisdom and how our human traits can be used successfully in business, your last line is a great integrator: "When we gain the hearts and minds of people we don't have to sell them- they are naturally pulled to you."

    I didn't put the image of dears @Javier 🐝 beBee or @Juan Imaz because I flatter them. I did it because these two gentlemen are exemplary of dedicated people to what they do passionately. It is their affinity that captured my heart. I wrote the buzz and I could have easily refrained from their mentioning or using their photos as the background image. I did it because they treat people well and they listen. They respond to comments, suggestions, complaints and take action. Because they are who they are they captured our readiness to spread beBee. We are not paid to do it and still we do it voluntarily. Liked you shared the comment of C@CityVP 🐝 Manjit in a buzz because you see value for people to benefit from this comment. Yes, we need to understand people because we shall then be able to be real humans.

    #4 It is again synchronicity of minds that made me think you would pause at this line of response to the eloquent comment of dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit my dear @Sara Jacobovici.
    I wish to add two points here. First, isn't it our better knowledge and awareness of each other that laid down the foundation of how you Sara and I treat each other? Isn't this understanding greater than the reservations (the least to say) that would stop usr from even taking to each other? You know what I mean. It is this understanding that you and I show the world that through understanding we may live together in peace.
    You didn't intentionally sell your respect to me. You gained it. When we gain the hearts and minds of people we don't have to sell them- they are naturally pulled to you.

You know the thought of this interview came about as I see so many creative endeavours of people cultivated over the years that fulfill them every day but never get highlighted. And it may not be about commercials necessarily at all but about following the path of the heart .And such heartfelt contentment is a Success which definetely goes a long long way in restoring hope and faith in our unlimited potential ! Strongly feel such stories of success of contentment needs to be celebrated and valued in and around us.

    Great interview @Savvy Raj! We grow vegetables and herbs every year. We don't have much land to plant them on so my husband made shelves with growing lights to begin the sprouting then it's re-potted and sits on our deck and beside our garage in the spring/summer. Fresh vegetables/herbs are wonderful to have on hand. We've had those pesky bugs that have ruined tomato plants in particular. I love my wild flowers too. A time to renew!

    There is no money in Peace - if there was; that would be breaking out everywhere. Fear and Low Info are the payday for Money and Power - and they have been that way for Millennia. It will not change in our life time. The current color revolutions in play by Soros & Clinton prove that. It's a recipe as old as Marx - too bad too few care to read it. Too bad so many still crave and love the Pavlovian Kibble.

    My grandfather served in WWI- just not to date myself too much, I had a much older grandfather. My other grandfather served during WWII and my dad during the Korean War. They all signed up voluntarily, so I came from a family of strong men, sadly they all left too soon. It was my mother who raised 5 children on a mealy wage that inspired me to dream, anything is possible and to never give up. Times have been tough lately. I have been more silent because my brain is trying to heal. But, in numbers there is strength and I/WE shall prevail!

    Being the daughter & sister of service men who faced 'the enemy' in Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf, the former wife of a police officer and a single mother for my daughter's entire life, I can say this; courage is love in it's purest form. We can try to separate them, but they are one and the same. I did not see myself as courageous for being a single mother because I love my daughter so much there is nothing I won't do, nothing I won't sacrifice for her well-being and happiness.
    When my brother left this earth I was his executor and supervised all the funeral arrangements. A cousin came up to me at the services and whispered: "You're the strongest person I've ever met". I wasn't strong., I wanted to scream at everything and everybody, BUT, my brother had suffered mentally and emotionally his entire life and because of this many looked down on him. I was going to make damn sure that his passing was seen as a great loss to us, because it was. Courage is love. Love will give you the strength of 10.

    A timely and relevant buzz @Donna-Luisa Eversley. One of my favorite quotes about courage: "β€œCourage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow.” ~ Mary Anne Radmacher. I love this quote because courage does come in all shapes and sizes, and it resides within us even when we don't realize that it is there. We are presented with circumstances and challenges every step of the way so I believe that courage definitely plays a part in helping us along the way. Lately, for me, it has been that little voice at the end of the day. Thanks for a lovely piece of writing and reflection, Donna.

    Yes Yes Yes @Sara Jacobovici so many wonderful thoughts & senses integrated in this buzz. I totally agree with you, to ask the question, "What is this emotion telling me? what is this sense telling me? We have forgotten these are signals - a sensory language. Our words arose from our sensory and lived experience - we have got further and further detached from them - if words are more like abstractions rather than full of rich meaning - they almost mean nothing. Is it any wonder then we can make choices that are not fulfilling, or make us unwell, or hurt others if we have lost the sense that a word is a representation of lived experience. The ill health in society, the stress in our workplaces - all of this stress is calling out - pay attention - take care of ourselves. All of this stress is our sensory language on a big scale asking us to pay attention to and to sense our aliveness or our ill health in mind, body and energy. It asks us to pay attention and to do something to return to our whole selves, our whole sensory, emotional, conscious, whole self, connected to self, other and nature. Living in an abstract world full of abstractions denies are very humanity.

    However hard we try to be strong but the fear of losing loved ones shifts the land beneath our feet. We should be self aware and then we would be able to understand feelings well.

    Our emotions are manifestations of who we are as sensory, conscious and creative beings. This is very true @Sara Jacobovici an informative and insightful buzz on the importance of acknowledging our emotions is fruitful honey to us bees.
    Emotional pain can be avoided if we learn the art of respecting and listening to our bodies. A concept which @Deb🐝 Lange very simply and beautifully portrays in her book. Trust your senses. There is so much to learn from our emotions we simply fail to notice and acknowledge.

    But we need to teach ourselves the art of learning and practice that to gain emotional freedom ( A mind not affected by emotions but enriched by emotions ) A happy mind is more productive than a sad mind that drains our liveliness out.

    This is an important #knowyouremotions buzz inspired by the great minds here on beBee. @Sara @Ali Anani and @Ian Weinberg Thank you :)

There are other objects beside the ones you list, which were created and are being used by emotional humans, such as: musical instruments, MRIs, solar cells or panels, telescopes, microscopes, and so on. 2. There seems to be a contradiction in your comment, you don't "care" for emotions, you don't "care" for the feels. Care carries a lot emotion.

    Thanks for gifting me these last moments of genius, @Sara Jacobovici, because I felt a surge of renewed emotions in the clarity you've manifested in this succinct sentence: "Our emotions are manifestations of who we are as sensory, conscious and creative beings."

    Emotions are emergent from the stew of being alive, with our particular thinking, sensing, and imagining equipment.

    Every emotion has a purpose and pretending certain ones don't exist, or worse, never occur, is taking away much of the true processing power of our bodymind complex.

    There is much thoughts and emotions connected in this buzz @Sara Jacobovici that I cant decide which to mention more so will take the last line..... Maybe in business β€œit’s time” to listen to our emotions. I believe likewise.
    As long as there are humans in business there will be emotions and as long as there are emotions in business there will be business.
    Well unless the human uniqueness of senses are working their entire gamut of operations the exchange of enterprise, the endeavour to thrive and compete in challenges and collaborate in support while emotions may surge, only to a channelling of sorts in time , society would never strive to evolve towards a purpose.

    #7 @Jim Murray - Bipolar Disorder is a very difficult disease to live with. One minute you are up and feel like you can conquer the world and the next you feel like you are walking through lead. I've been v. circumspect about revealing my illness - because despite it's a physical illness due to a chemical imbalance in the brain - it's still very stigmatised here in SA. I am worried that if I 'come out' openly I will no longer get referrals and my business will crash and burn.... @Jim Murray if your daughter needs some advice or someone to talk to regarding her illness then she is free to contact me.

    @Jim Murray thanks for this post. I'm going to print a copy for my mom, she will appreciate and comment I'm sure.
    I'd like to say, being true to the reality is much more important than being positive. It sends me nuts when I'm told I need to be positive especially if I'm in a crisis. I've had to teach myself throughout the years to find the good , positive and funny and bad things about any situation and then take what I want out of it. In the past few years I've been told I'm always positive, and I'm not. I just rotate my situations and know I'm going to make the best out of it. I seek out what I call the light and sometimes it's not positive, sometimes it's staring my reality in the face and saying ..Oh shoot..How do I move forward. My family thinks that is positive, but I think they are confusing acceptence and action with positive, because my action says move.
    Anyway mental health and wellness is important, and we need to be more aware, more understanding and less judgemental about its effects on social norms and more concerned about people.

    #3 #2 β€” Jim and Claire, a person who does not recognize danger can never be brave, for bravery resides in seeing danger for what it is and overcoming the fear it engenders. So too, a Pollyanna who does not recognize the dark aspects of life can never be a genuine optimist, for optimism resides is seeing the problems in life and ultimately moving forward in spite of them and in spite of doubts that one harbors. (Or for you Canucks, harbours.) Cheers!

    Thanks for sharing this @Jim Murray - mental health issues are still swept under the carpet because of the social stigma. Hopefully more people speaking out will start to put and end to this....

    Colors have different energies. I enjoyed the buzz as I could see some relevance between meanings of colors ad their energies. Apparently colors have also different temperatures with some very hot, others mild and the rest cold to varying degrees. Thank you for this sharing @Louise Smith. Please note that I mentioned you in my last buzz on "Because I loved you so much I stopped loving you"

    Finding the Needle of the Compass
    Finding the Needle of the CompassKnow your direction and where to go is a basic concept of strategy. If you don't know where to go then you may end up anywhere. We need a compass to show us the direction. In our highly unstable and volatile world we may have a compass to show us...

    #49 I thank you dear @Jeet Sarkar for your mind-challenging questions. As I said before in a response to a comment here, sometimes having many choices may be confusing to the mind. The birds utilize fixed facts to take fixed directions such as the position of the sun and the magnetism of the earth and this way they may use simple rules in this complex world. We need sometimes to have fixed rules to follow to limit down our options and find a simple direction to follow.
    We may also recall that the magnetized beaks, for example, are not permanent magnets; in fact hey are only magnetized under certain conditions so that the molecules within may be magnetized under certain conditions. How about a similar thinking? We are not magnetized, but creative enough to learn from nature.

    Followed by sounds and then smell.

    I say smell as the third because if you observe the 24 HR cycle, rarely do both nostrils operate simultaneously in a lifestyle where we are usually seated in AC environment.

    But eyes and ears usually operate together.

    If we equate with the human body, why do we assume sight as one input, why not assume two parralelly functioning eyes...I compare it with operational and accounting double entry...In strategy we look at accounts but often are lazy to view operational entries simultaneously... The linkages behind the numbers.

    Similarly two ears not exclusive in inputs but outputs...Factual and hearsay...Outputs being same..Outlook

    2 nostrils, for risk and opportunity simultaneously...One is marketing dept and one is planning dept...Don't isolate...Structure and simplify functioning 8 hrs in office is an extremely long time..These things can be done in under 20 mins with practice.

    And yes, practice to sharpen the senses.

    Talking about paradoxes

    Evaluating inputs of our senses is done by the brain. This evaluation is not within the realm of our conscious rationality, but serves as an input.

    Our body evolves as per experience, senses improve with higher variations in the environment, and rationality improves with sensory inputs and practicing rationality.

    So the best method of sharpening senses is through varied experience, which can be natural or experimental as prescribed by rationality.

    The very discussion of senses tilts our evaluation towards the rational side and we are conditioned to assume rationality and sensory inputs as exclusive and a matter of choice and not complimentary.

    Hence the first step as reflected in your posts ..Is rational acceptance of our senses, The second step hence must be experience of the senses, effective modules for sharpening our senses...The easiest being sight

    Evolution is the key by virtue of which fins of a fish are able to modified into the wings of a bird, this evolution makes the aves group very special. They have some outstanding abilities. The comparison and the metaphors you used are as usual beauty of your post. But I wonder if the human eyes and nose , two critical sense organs, are magnetized then what will happen about viewing and sensing the the decisions and strategy? How human beings will reciprocate it?because magnet can only work with the limited number of metals. An intriguing post by the way sir @Ali Anani I must say! enjoy reading . Thank you very much for sharing it sir .

    #46 This is the irony @Alan Culler- we are still not sure of how birds do it. How birds sense their direction? As I mentioned in the buzz- nearly all the methods you summarized in your thoughtful talk. I myself believe like molecules send messages in our bodies, there are also molecules in birds that make them aware of direction. How? I am still trying to understand. The journey is a long one my friend.

    In the US a few months ago we were treated to the annual migration of the Canada Geese - a great 'V' of birds in the sky flying South. It is tempting to thing that they all follow a leader at the point of the 'V'. On further observation, one sees that the point position is rotational -the leader drops back to the position on one of the wings of the 'V."

    The ornithological hypothesis is that the point position encounters greater wind resistance and is therefore very tiring -therefore the rotation. But how do the geese all know the direction?

    Is it visual based upon landmarks?

    Is it sound based -communicated by that incessant honkink as they fly overhead -or when the gaggle mills about chaotically on the ground?

    Or does the magnetism of the poles and lines of longitude and latitude speak to them all?

    Or is it memory -individual and species memory that directs them?

    Or all of these things?

    And how would we as humans learn from this -seeing -feeling- connecting- talking -joining and moving together.

    Thank you, Ali -I always enjoy the mental adventures you lead.

    As usual, Ali Anani a beautiful post tapestry with so many threads:
    Personal purpose, inner direction and vision direction

    Strategy -understanding direction and over-coming the "conflicts and frictions" that will get in the way of execution.

    The how of purpose or vision detection -Magnetic perceptions -. or sense driven -sight and sound -more concrete -but just as hard to understand.

    And the collective behavior of the flock -all moving in the same direction.

    I'm thinking a lot about that -Thank you.

    #39 Dear @Mohammed Sultan- thanks again for engaging my mind. When scouts of bees find a good resource they waggle dance to let other bees find out the new location and the direction how to get there. The bees need to know not only where to go, but also the direction how to get there.
    As for birds that migrate to the same place annually they know the destination well ahead of time. They could travel more than 1000 km to get there. They need now more the direction how to get there because they know the destination.
    So, I agree with you and your son if birds were to migrate to different places they need first to find the destination. This what bees do as they scout different flours . They send scout bees to find a new source. The destination in this case comes first.

    Birds immigration or businesses journey is not set for specific direction,so both need focus to dwell in promising areas that worth the energy and attention given to their long journey.Setting a proper direction without focusing on what you do better than others will keep you floundering or at best just a runner.The journey often comprises a set of milestones with objectives,and with ever stopping a new direction may need to be set.Just as people may become lost,adrift,and aimless once they have reached a goal.My son, a diplomat, has once told me that- we are like the immigrating birds, every year in a different duty station, so many of us suffer from what we can call it an "arrival syndrome" or "immigration syndrome".It's not the direction itself that's important.it's the challenge to find what you thrive for.

    #34 I thank you heartedly dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit for writing a lovely comment. Till now scientists are not sure how birds do it. We know birds and animals do it, but how is still a challenging question in most cases.
    You bring two hugely relevant points. Yes, Serendipity has played a major role in our lives and has led to great discoveries. So many chemical and other discoveries weren't planned for; through serendipity they emerged. X-ray is one example.
    As for the rational thinking of man- yes, and this is an asset the man forgets to use and I feel sometimes it is better than have it and neglect it is worse than not having it at all. As I mentioned in my response to @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman how much rational thinking goes in the stock markets when greed becomes a dominant force and all lessons and data are burnt by greed.
    Inner compass and inner motivation- and now inner compass and outer compass- a great point to expand on my friend.
