Comments19/08/2017 #1 Kevin BakerIt was left to you because every one else noticed. You and he are more mirror of your selves then perhaps you realize. We as children view parents as a different species , some how our savior. Take solace in the clarity that you did understand him. We are hard wired with the need to be understood. When we become parents the vision of equality in humanness sometimes overwhelms us. We form false regret of not being our parents savior. In truth we do the best we can given our awareness and operand conditioning of acceptable behavior. A long ramble of empathy to say a simple thing. Never does not exist as long as you draw breath.
Comments19/08/2017 #1 Steven DaviesVery true. When starting my business I literally nothing but the clothes on my back and mobile phone. I got free wi-fi thank to the city, and from there I started hawking myself as a freelance writer. A few years later I have a home, a business and something to call my own.
Never give up, ever.

Instead if he partners with Reince Priebus (and he has an existing donor base to Trump to invest in such a partnership), that will be the only thing Nancy Pelosi would not want to see happen though I doubt Pelosi is even thinking like that. A mind like Steve Bannon can still change a whole lot of things, where then he is stronger being outside the White House.

Unfortunately not too soon as she lost her beloved mother on Thursday night. My heart feels sorry for her loss. But Sara wold have enjoyed your comment considerably. Yes, we want to be independent and yet wish to belong to a group. As you mentioned sometimes a group may slow us down, but still we feel safer with a group without willing to lose our authenticity. I have more to say about your comment soon.18/08/2017 #24 Lisa VanderburgAh-ha...is optimism/pessimist not more a matter of extremes, wonderful @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee? Using the lesson from that fun video, the balls are attracted to either rim or each other, depending on the 'climate' of physics and the amount of water in this particular glass. Ether way, they are 'covering their own ass' (pardon my vernacular).To make full advantage of our paths possibly requires a stability that does not include extremes, but those are like fingerprints or...fractals, as you and @Milos Djukic would understand way better than me!
To be without extreme; basically in the middle of our wont, is a much sought-after commodity, methinks. As you know, my husband has PD, but I always say his PRIMARY disease is unbridled optimism! It's an open joke; he considers me 'pessimistic' (wherein I think I'm 'rational'), and I see his 'optimism' as 'extreme', as the inability to not see the proverbial excrement that WILL hit the fan; the fall-out! Lord...wish I was sane!! :) Great buzz, friend!18/08/2017 #23 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorKeeping in the flow may result in the loss of new opportunities and hinder our chances to move in various directions - like a tree wanting to spread its branches. But like the tree, we should remember our roots and while venturing out and not lose track of our true identity.
If we become strongly dependent on others, then I don't believe we can remain free-flowing entities as we come diluted in the process. Plus, strongly relying on others may not always be our best option. It's best to dip your toe than to jump into the hot water.18/08/2017 #22 Maureen WixonThank you Ali Anani for this flowing post. Life throws new challenges and opportunities and how we respond matters. Still like the words of Kahlil Gibran as our needs for reaching out, bonding and separateness changes as the flow is constantly in motion: "“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls."18/08/2017 #20 Tricia MitchellAn interesting buzz, dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I appreciate you bringing my attention to the shared theme. Fascinating video watching the movement of the ball based on the buoyancy of the water. It's funny, that was the word I used to describe your buzzes, that you 'buoy' readers up, but then I changed it to 'afloat' as the sentence didn't 'flow'! I think, perhaps, this may be an example where people 'receive' the same inspiration and season it with their own flavour. The message gets through using a variety of mediums, potentially influencing the collective.
You wrote, "The optimist tends to move on a path away from the center and attention. In contrast, the optimist is the person who keeps moving towards the center because s/h is engaged." I find this interesting; if it is the optimist that moves towards the centre, at what point does s/he break free and float off in search of other adventures (sometimes a group can slow us down, as well as strengthening the individual by combining skills)?
In terms of flow, I just 'saw' a canal. This reminded me of streams feeding into lakes, rivers feeding into estuaries that feed into oceans, and raindrops into reservoirs. The water in our reservoirs ends up coming out of our taps and then the cycle begins all over again.
I believe that we are "free-flowing entities" while still being connected to the whole consciously, and that we only separate physically. Or maybe, collective consciousness is like watching a drop of water fall into the ocean and then trying to find it again?18/08/2017 #19 Debasish Majumderout of the process photosynthesis, water on leaves are visible, a product of the plant itself. i wonder, how the droplets have their inherent desire to move without the direction of the leaves out of its design of surface! i guess, the leaves largely having control of water droplets on its surface and dictate the fate of the concern droplets. so, i guess, external world have a great deal to determine the fate of any event.however, lovely insight sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! enjoyed read and shared. thank you very much for the share sir.18/08/2017 #18 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#17 Dear @Jean L. Serio- your comment is so rich and powerful and the answers you give are wise. I take, for example, hives on beBee. I could stick to one hive and feel safe. If this prolongs then the hive could become a comfort zone. I find it necessary to join other hives even though one would be stranger sitting in the sidelines. But this time could be the time to ponder on issues that hang in the head. Sometimes a random effect would send us to the edge.
I am always baffled by your comprehension as reflected in your sound comments. This one is no exception.18/08/2017 #17 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAAn interesting question, Ali Anani - Should we stay with the flow or become independent? I'm sure there are those who would agree there are times in life when we should stick 'with the flow'; and others when we should move on (beyond) the group (whoever that group is) and become independent. Sticking with a group doesn't always help us grow in ways which allow us to flourish and succeed. As our life changes, I believe different groups appeal to us. Perhaps networking with several groups is better than sticking with just one. Over the years you may simply outgrow a group and no longer have anything in common, and while still considered a member, you rarely attend gatherings. So while technically having the bond, you have moved to the sidelines and become independent of them.18/08/2017 #13 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeYou touched my heart with your comment @Míriam Caro López. You are the present not only in time, but also to get to know you is also a wonderful present.
The tension you have between your devotion to family and love to continue with your study is a bifurcation point in your life. To live the present we do our best to compromise and "comes what comes". I a a strong believer of this. I said once we are all like farmers who plant almonds trees. The farmer does his best to create the best growing environment for the trees. His efforts are producing the almonds flowers. Only then for a wind to blow them away. What the farmer do?
I don't see the river alone and you made me see more of it.18/08/2017 #12 Míriam Caro LópezFryday, thinking introspectively, and writing in English, too much for me... (so please, excuse my mistakes)
Do I do what I, younger, wanted to be doing by now? Am I who I wanted to be? Did I really choose? So many and so small details led us here. Because life is happening now, in the present. Past is something to keep in mind for learning from, and future is just a dream. And we all must be thanked for what we learnt and what we have; I feel so.
But as I work, I have a family to take care of, and I have deciced to study again, many times I wonder about my decisions and my present, why do I keep my job?, am I studing enough? should I play more with my son? what do I need to learn?
I guess no fish sees the whole river along. So we all try to do what we can.
My yoga master often says something like Give your best and leave the rest to Universe, and so I know many people "leaving to Universe", but I'm more for giving my best. I think I know which drops I'm stuck, and which drops I would change for a new path. How could I not to try?

Comments19/08/2017 #11 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#9 Thank you @Deb 🐝 Helfrich and I agree with you "They have completely twisted their own fears and find it easier to attack others than fix their own lives, this happens in a vacuum of love". However; I must refer to the exchange of comments between @Edward Lewellen and myself today on a previous post of mine. Edward said that people like to love and feel loved. It is when they lose their feeling they turn to toxic behaviors. So, as you wrote "They have completely twisted their own fears and find it easier to attack others than fix their own lives, this happens in a vacuum of love".Why these young people behave this way? Is it because they are escaping their lives that they want to inflict the same on others? Are they used to taking drugs as a form of escaping live? What pushed them to this edge?
My only concern here is that without solving the real cause their evil actions shall never be stopped. Desperation leads to the worse.18/08/2017 #10 Tricia Mitchell#9 Well said @Deb 🐝 Helfrich As an afterthought, I included then deleted the teenager from my home town (I decided to reserve it for a separate buzz) - in reference to your comment, "The older the person, the more mentally entrenched hate becomes, but I think of the teenage suicide bombers and I know just one stranger willing to respect them as a person could preempt a tragedy on that day." He was 14 when he plotted an attack, 15 years old when convicted. The ability to manipulate an 18 year old halfway across the world is impressive (I thought), but that sort of mental ability in the wrong hands is a dangerous thing, with terrible consequences.
I've had my own views about films and video games for a few years (before or arund the time of watching Philip Zimbardo's Demise of Guys video https://www.theguardian.com/science/head-quarters/2015/may/11/the-professor-who-thinks-video-games-will-be-the-downfall-of-men-zimbardo), although my focus was more on how violence is normalised in games and films, potentially desensitizing players/viewers & rewiring their brains. If we can become desensitised to suffering on the news, due to 'over-exposure' - it becomes the norm, then there's less to prick the conscience of those wanting to carry out violent acts, perhaps... I read something about the blurring between games & reality, it may have been Shawn Achor's The Happiness Advantage, or another pop psychology book I read years ago. Thanks for commenting.18/08/2017 #9 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWhile there are a bunch of mental gyrations in between, these acts of atrocities can only be executed by people without a sustainable source of love in their lives. The older the person, the more mentally entrenched hate becomes, but I think of the teenage suicide bombers and I know just one stranger willing to respect them as a person could preempt a tragedy on that day.
No one at that rally had a buoyant love in their lives. No one driving into people with a vehicle has a love that makes them feel alive.
They have completely twisted their own fears and find it easier to attack others than fix their own lives, this happens in a vacuum of love.
To go out and assemble against other people, with an agenda of aligning yourself with mass murders is not free speech, it is a threat, and this sort of speech has consequences.
But one of the consequences must be that those of us who don't hate have to redouble our efforts to ripple love out to the people hurting and unable to see clearly about their own humanity.
This is a challenge in our world that divides along all sorts of random characteristics, but we must keep spreading love and the message we are all one species.18/08/2017 #6 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#5 I just realized that our buzzes of today share the word change. I have just realized that we tackled an issue from two different perspectives. I asked a question in the buzz to which few responses addressed very deeply. I wonder what your response would be my dear @Tricia Mitchell
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/changing-paths-is-it-a-choice#c1718/08/2017 #3 Tricia Mitchell#2 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I believe the message of love writes itself. These verses from Maya Angelou's Still I Rise feel like a poignant reminder to choose love each time fear and hatred rear their ugly heads:
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Thank you for sharing this buzz, my friend.
