    We should be emphatic enough to understand the feelings of a person at a receiving end. People sometimes try to enact scenes of revenge from movies but have we ever felt how does it feel like evolving oneself with our fellow human beings. I have come accross with people who loves to break rules and bully others. Folks engage in fight just to satiate their ego. A buzz worth reading and reflecting upon as it discusses serious issues.Thanks for sharing it with us @Jim Taggart

    It is truly sad the war on minds and the gravity away from the family unit. The base old school morals and values Canada used to be. I feel it will never be the same. It could become better though the short sighted population is larger then those of sight.

    I think you are spot-on with all of your statements. I try the best I can to remain objective in my interactions with others - online and offline. If I find myself in a situation where people are being negative for the sake of being negative, I remove myself.

    You are spot on with your very timely post, @Jim Taggart. I live in a suburb of Atlanta where the traffic is horrendous and road rage is quite prevalent. People are always in a hurry and have short fuses. I don't understand how people can just lose it to the point of harming another person. It's very concerning.

    I used to be in customer service years ago which taught me a lot about patience. My employer, at that time, held training classes on how to handle disgruntled customers. The training was well worth the time spent.

    I'm not one to go into a frenzy but I can be impatient. IMO, it doesn't pay to raise my blood pressure just because something isn't to my liking.

    Could we actually have more senses outside the color spectrum that reaches our subconscious mind and our bodies? We are effected by waves we cannot see. At the quantum level these waves penetrate our cells. Our cells communicate to the rest of our body and our organs adjust its network of communications accordingly.

    30/04/2017 #22 🐝 Fatima G. Williams
    Ever since I read your book "Trust your senses" my body is more aware and is able to understand my senses and what it is capable of.
    We are living in a competitive world where all one thinks of is how to stand out of the competition. But as an individual reconnecting with my senses and actively listening to it. I am able to discern what's right and wrong. If we fine tune and develop our sensory multi-intelligence we will experience a work life balance and attain satisfaction of being.
    My experiences are helping me explore this unknown territory and I am in awe.
    Thank you @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeedeb for inviting us to re-think what our senses mean in daily life. I am still exploring and though we have many obstacles in doing the same I will keep trying ☺
    Quoting your book "We are living in our heads, outside our visceral experience,
    we disconnect from what creates our wellbeing" We need to connect with what creates our well-being which is nothing other than understanding and listening and satisfying our sensory needs.

    What interests me is how we use our senses, and how we adapt to not having a core sense like blindness or deafness from birth or loss of a sense later life.
    How many of us are in denial over our senses? We see people peering at print obviously needing glasses, pretending they heard what someone has said, when clearly they haven't. Do we often have an in balance of a sense of ego?
    Finally no mention of the sense everyone is supposed to try and display common sense.

    Yes I agree @Cyndi wilkins and many people do not sense they have inner conflict as many of us were taught to suppress and control
    Our senses and feelings. It is like being awakened when we discover how we are containing our energy and seperate human ourselves from
    Life. It is liberating when we learn to allow our energy to flow, and express ourselves with all our capacities in the ways that we have been so gracefully endowed. #11

    Exciting work @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee. Appreciated reading your buzz and the great discussion your work has inspired. We are sensory beings and as such take everything in through that system. For me, the awareness of it all is overwhelming. That is why "intense" is one of my favorite words. But as long as I am more in the "awe" of it all (see @Ian Weinberg's buzz, A personal contribution to the Mind Buzz), I am enjoying the ride.

    Since the day I experienced the unannounced event of the collapse of the rear part of our building it changed my course of life. I have gained a sense of sensing danger and acting upon the word of my inner voice. Watching it in movies and experiencing oneself is a totally different experience. There are events and setbacks which changes one's life to the core that the senses which are now known were unknown earlier.

    "If we developed a new model of human development from a quantum and multiple intelligence framework, what would that look like?"

    This brings to my awareness the need to expand our view of consciousness by creating flexibility in our thoughts about evolution thus far. Our current understanding is inadequate as it has been taught to us from the perspective of the five sensory human in physical form. In order to survive, we must a be able to evolve by developing an awareness of consciousness beyond the physical form to bring us into alignment with the basic principles of the universe. By that I am referring to the energy of thought projection...We are, in effect, the result of our intentions.

    In terms of spirit, rage and fear kills...It is the energy of love that saves us...Emotion is a necessary element to our survival...Even if one were to sacrifice his or her life with the intention of saving another. Such an individual is considered the most highly evolved among us. Our collective view of power as external is in need of change. Whatever perception is dominant within the collective creates the projection that plays out before us. As MULTI-sensory humans, we possess the ability to shift perceptions in accordance with the larger perspective...The Big Picture as it were.

    Unfortunately, the reality we are seeing playing out in our world today is rooted in fear. It is now time for each of us to face and transcend our deepest fears by bringing our inner conflicts to resolution. In this way, we create a 'ripple effect' among the collective, serving as active participants in a massive collaborative effort to shift the consciousness of an entire species from that of anger and fear to embrace the healing energies of love. Together we can;-)

    The previous comments said almost all what I wanted @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I may add here tat humans fist develop their senses in the foetus and soon after birth. I believe it is the touch sense first and then the taste sense. I wonder if ther are up to 33 senses what would come next. We have here the "Senses Tree". NOt all people grow identically and I wonder if our senses aren't the same. We share the same senses, but we aren't the same. The bifurcation of senses! You wrote "...with a focus on tuning in and reading our multi-sensory intelligence. We are having some amazing results". Your approach is correct for the sensory system is a complex one and we need a wholistic thinking for any complex system. Very interesting buzz and sharing

    29/04/2017 #4 Ian Weinberg
    @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee Further to the questions you raise - Indeed I see great value in reducing the 'noise' of subjectivity insofar as the filtering of sensory information is concerned. Directing attention to the 'pure' sensed/perceived entity will contribute enormous value to re-building from the bottom, upwards. From this space, new experiences and more authentic subjective beliefs will inevitably evolve.

    Jim, you are absolutely right, the internet is a gimmick to get people to join the lemming line. I post every day, because it is a challenge I presented to myself. Over the last two years, I've been lazy about writing in general. I'm almost done with the challenge. Also, since I stopped being a dick in the real world, I don't have a lot of friends left. Perhaps your epiphany has stated that I need to find new friends, but I don't care for dicks, and finding people who aren't dicks in the real world is getting harder and harder to do. I think it's an extension of the internet. I prefer to read dragon fire breath most days than not. I like truth. Have a great day!

    Jim, perhaps the most troubling aspect is the use of Gamification techniques which award tokens of no intrinsic value as rewards for constantly posting not only articles, but comments, shares, and likes. Like the new "Queen Bee" label on beBee that will be awarded for "... beeing an extra busy buzzing bee" the idea behind Gamification is to produce a Dpamine dependence that drives a user to obsessive activity. What is even more chilling is that the technique is spoken of in social media management circles with unremorseful glee as a growth hack. Cheers!

    You are simply brilliant, my admired Sara, thank you for sharing this gem. I agree entirely, and as usual, like to go a little step further on such challenging posts.
    In your line of thoughts "...pushes us to move at an increasingly faster pace; be the first, ...but the fastest." this society is based on the wrong concept of only two choices: loser or winner. The terrifying fear of not being a winner and becoming a looser instead makes us be blind to many other possibilities that are available, dignifying and very good enough we oversee just because of this wrong approach.
    The mental exercise you are proposing (pause, instead of stop), is something I did some time ago, as this "race for time" was professionally driving me to jobs I did not like. This brought me where I am now, happy and satisfied with the life I have, full of purpose, but not the one the society made for me, but the one I have chosen for me. To do that, the component of this driven fear has to be taken out of the equation, above all, because this "sense of urgency" is a fallacy.
    So I can say, due to personal experience, that your proposal works.

    I am so happy to have noticed this buzz because I didn't receive any notification. @Sara Jacobovici- you climbed to the top of the mountain with this precious buzz. It is deep, and makes me stop and pause before commenting. Is it better to be on the edge or near the middle point- the equilibrium. If we are loving bodies and open to our environments then we exchange energy and info and keep transforming accordingly. This means we are always on the edge if we are to be living humans. Yet; having a purpose is a center point around which around which we should focus our actions. We need to be on the edge and near the equilibrium point of purpose. The two options are mutually repulsive. Or, we have the uncertainty principle in operation.
    In every chaotic system we have areas of order embedded in the "layers of chaos"/ Are the pause periods the orderly moments that we need to make in the layers of our chaotic lives?
    You give so much to ponder on. I truly need to pause and think. This buss has influenced my brain more than you can imagine.

    #1 Thanks, Dean, for your comment :-) I appreciate it! The article is intended for those people that may be buying something as a gift or for themselves and wonder what is the best idea. The best idea is to buy something you really love wearing, but sometimes people need more pragmatic reasons and I have tried to give them exactly this. I have been in jewelry sales for some time and I love to translate all the questions and considerations people have, into blogs that, hopefully, can give some inspiration or solve a *problem*.
    I do completely agree with your last sentence :-)

    I would say there is a distinct difference between second and vintage jewelry, but in the end, new jewelry as an investment is a bad idea, but vintage jewelry can be a great investment (provided you have an eye). For gold, better of buying physical gold, gold futures, or gold ETFs as you are not paying extra for design and marketing. Now might not be the best of times to invest in gold. And remember, not a lot of people know this but the price of gold is to some extent cyclical (with Indian wedding season). But in the end, we purchase jewelry for love...

    Everything we found creative is generally generated by spherical minded people in this virtual world! Because a linear line of thinking doesn't allow you to back at the origin point again to rethink the matter! 78% of water is present in our brain, a dielectric medium, i think this is one of the reason why our brain give rise to certain creative thinking! As we also know that our body constitutes around 76% of water but as compared to body brain is too small! Thank you sir @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee for sharing such a lovely post !

    I agree with you that all pebbles are not same neither the water where it can create a rippling effect. What you sow so shall you reap. Bacteria working in tandem with ideas worth reflecting upon would create productive results. I think the best example would be a meeting of business partners where a partner discusses an idea to take the business ahead where other partners keep their point forth. The partner who discussed this idea would get constructive feedback and the disruption causes to come up with an idea which would be more fruitful one.

    @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, so many ripples, so many ideas! I can only grab onto one of them from my first reading of your buzz and that is the discussion of the parts and whole. You write, "Understanding the parts may not lead to the understanding of the whole." As synchronicity would have it, I had just finished commenting on @Ian Weinberg's buzz about having started to read Kurt Goldstein's The Organism, today. Goldstein writes that we can learn about parts from the whole but can never know the whole from looking at the parts.

    #16 #17 This discussion gentlemen, @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, reminds me of the issues related to the blood-brain barrier. One of the medical developments is that there are now medications that can pass through the blood-brain barrier. This is considered an advancement because the field of medicine has decided that there are certain elements that the brain needs and were prevented from entering, and now they can. My naive question is, why were they prevented from passing into the brain in the first place. I haven't researched this enough to speak of the benefits (of which I am sure they do exist), I can only speak from the point of view of witnessing what effects this had had on my mom; so far, she doesn't seem to like the effects of what happens when she takes medication that crosses the blood-brain barrier.

    #16 Thank you for your very informative comment and links @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I recall once that I wrote that negative thinking is a kind of bacteria in our brains. Let me start with a quote "Microbial communities are found at many different sites on the human body, including nasal passages, oral cavities, skin, gastrointestinal tract, and urogenital tract. These commensal microbes shape the immune and metabolic status of the host and play important roles in human health and disease. The brain is one organ that has been assumed to be sterile in the healthy host, but this is probably not true – apparently we have bacteria in our brains"!
    http://www.virology.ws/2013/06/28/bacteria-in-our-brains/
    This is consistent with your comment. As for bacteria in the brain apparently there are. I personally have always wondered how our brains have 78% of their weight water and with no bacteria! Whether yes or no, we do have negative attitudes and thinking that do. One last point- bacteria whether present in the brain or not they still affect the digestive systems, which is in turn linked to the brain. We humans may send the wrong and harmful like-bacteria resulting from our senses to the brain. If we are hurt by our senses, which feed the brain, them indirectly we are hurting the brain.

    If we suggest that "we are what we eat" so let me start from this point :
    http://thechronicleherald.ca/community/1133646-we-are-what-we-eat

    What helps us with what what we eat are our gut bacteria. Now the one place I don't want bacteria to enter is my brain. Scientists don't know if brain bacteria is a good thing, at least those found in glia cells but generally it is not a good thing to have bacteria circumvent the brain's protective environment.

    At the same time new evidence points to a much more complex relationship between the gut and the brain then previously assumed. Previous assumptions were based on medical practice that separated brain experts from gut experts. It is only in recent times that work has begun to bring these two groups of specialists together, and so their findings are tertiary and the field is nascent, but the change is significant, because it moves us towards an integrated view of health, rather than a division of specialisms that previously would not see the connection as relevant.

    So it is that we now are open to new questions, whose answers are only now being tested and explored
    http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/312734.php

    As technologists map the human brain for the purposes of artificial intelligence, brain specialists are obtaining new information from the brain from partners that were not in the brain game before and that includes those in the artificial intelligence community and other medical practitioners such as gut experts. We know for now that there is a relationship between our neural pathways and how micrbiome can communicate with it, but the full ramifications of that are still being studied. It is autism research which propelled movement to a more holistic response to the gut-brain relationship.

    "Intrinsic neural activity is driven by sensory input, intrinsically stored information, the generated neuro-electric field as well as by probable resonance with other entities within the energy dimension."

    "All of our thoughts are working together to create what we experience as our physical world; The thoughts that are dominant create the projection."
    I believe it was Albert Einstein who said that...and he further stated that had he not come up with his theory of relativity, somebody else would have because it was an 'idea' whose time had come....Interesting....So whose idea was it??? His....Or a collective consciousness that he had managed to tap into as a result of his beliefs at the time...

    “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it…Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but create it; This is not philosophy, this is physics” I believe Albert was considered to be quite daft during his time...Perhaps because he was so far ahead of his 'Time.'

    "The understanding of the concept of human consciousness represent a broad spectrum of individuals, each unique in their subjectivity...The inflexibility of some individuals to respect, consider and evaluate the authentic views of others on the subject, impedes the evolution towards a collective understanding of the concept."

    @Ian Weinberg....I encounter these individuals every time I broach the subject of conscious memory existing beyond physical form...Most of these individuals are scientists or have very deep religious roots and seem to find it troublesome that the 'commoner' or 'lay person' could achieve a higher conscious state that has taken them years to 'physically cultivate' having gone through extraordinary lengths of study and practice within the 'physical realm.' I am told my concepts are not possible as they are not in accordance with what Sages of various disciplines have passed down to us through millenia.

    To that end I am further informed that consciousness cannot exist without physical form and cannot do the things I have suggested...To that I would suggest we create within the landscape of our lives that which is accordance with OUR beliefs...NOT the beliefs of others...Their experiences are unique to their own version of the world as THEY know it...Our individual experiences are meant to serve as a guide through the evolutionary process of expanded awareness...and that means ALL of us...Certainly not just a chosen few.

    I read this article long back,

    http://www.sciencealert.com/consciousness-could-be-a-result-of-entropy-say-researchers

    And couldn't digest the thought of consciousness is being side effect from brain, it might have some effect to evolve it but not as source of its origin. Just like artificial intelligence can evolve itself but it has to be created.

    And if it is side effect of brain, then I wonder how the living beings like jellyfish survive without brain and consciousness then.

I agree couldn't agree more with this statement, "These include: gratitude for the experience of life and its blessings as emanating from the source files of creation; respect, sensitivity and empathy for others - since we all are connected in the timeless-spaceless zone; calmness and trust in acknowledging that we are small but unique components in an awesomely vast system" Sensitivity and empathy play a major role in many relationships whether they are personal or professional!

    @Ian Weinberg A super post on one of the big questions of life - what is consciousness? I find it fascinating that neuro-electrical activity takes place a few milliseconds before a conscious decision. Which may lead to another big question - the existence and extent of free will. Or as someone said: "My will is free but my won't is not". The emotional tags you refer to overlaps with what Antonio Damasio calls the somatic moment/memory. A thought provoking read - thanks Ian.

    #2 I have to agree Brian. I think men have the added pressure of looks to a certain degree too. Think of the 'hair transplant' commercials, viagra, 6 pack abs etc... so you're right, there are societal pressures on both men and women. I would like to say women are harder on themselves but I think men can be just as hard on themselves, they just don't share it out loud like we women do. Not all women are money driven and not all men are driven to women because of exterior beauty. Social Media and TV add so much more pressure though!

    #1 I thought she looked just fine before her surgery too @Gloria 🐝 🐾 💫 ☕ Ochoa. I didn't realize young gals are dying their hair to look older, that is funny in an odd way. Just when I think I have things partially figured out, they change again. I'm with you on the hair, that's one thing I'm not ready for... total gray! This will sound gross but when I see liposuction and how they jam that tube in and out it makes me weak at the knees which goes to your thought, the long term effects? At some point these women will have to accept that they are growing old and it may be a very rude awakening. I always tried to teach my daughter to focus on her strengths and and also great emphasis was put on how we treated others but there's no getting past the teen angst so many girls go through. I see the beauty of her personality shine now, which makes me happy!

    Society places value of women on beauty and of men on money - when you hit the Wall / or go Bust - appropriately, society is done with you. Off to the next binge worthy widget for social fodder and entertainment. Live fast, die young, leave a beautiful corpse - it ever was such.

    She was (still is) pretty before all that surgery! We put too much emphasis on youth. Do I wish I looked younger or firmer or didnt have a few laugh lines? Yeah...I do sometimes. (eh hem...I get a little help from Loreal in the hair department--have you seen that kids are dying their hair gray, white, silver because they want to look older? Oh..that makes me laugh! ) I think it is all society making us feel bad about growing (hopefully) more wiser, more skilled and more empathetic to those that have not learned the lessons one acquires as they grow another year older. ;) I dont quite understand the shifting of "fat' from one spot to another like companies move departments around the office. Im sure in a few more years there will be medical health issues cropping up because of it. Love this post...we could chat so much on this one for sure.

    With permission from Franci, here is my addition to her poem. How's that for a crowd sourced poem! :) Well two is not a crowd but 3 is company and 4 is a crowd.

    Quilted clouds above
    A thirsty earth begs for tears

    Tears not from the silently weeping
    Who are raped, gassed, beaten, unfed, suppressed
    But tears that flow unbidden from
    The grateful eyes of those who received love
    Tears that flow from those who are overwhelmed
    By the kindness of a few good souls
    Tears that roll down to wash the feet of Mother Earth
    For all the kindness and love that is bestowed between people on earth.
    It is those tears that the Earth begs.
