I appreciate your writing about your experience Liesbeth and most importantly, about your insight into your learning: "This week I learned how each human being has a story to tell. A touching story that can be so different from what we would expect at first glance." A true call to action to be mindful and open to each individual being as unique as their story, one that we need to wait to hear first, before we make up our own about them.25/02/2017 #35 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc.

Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.#29 helpful comments @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, we recognise this, it is good to share our experiences and viewpoints.25/02/2017 #29 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWhat a lovely blog @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.. I think it's cool that you were able to attend a seminar on mindfulness. I think for myself, mindfulness comes to me in different forms. Music takes my mind on a journey that is hard to describe, the scents of the woods after the rain, flower gardens, and I can't leave out my photography. Photography takes me away from all of life's stressors and it brings to life different senses when I upload, view and many times edit. As for people, I have to say I really try to keep in mind that everyone has struggles we don't know about. I find it's easier for some to share their struggles and for others- it may be way too painful or they are just that private. I try to remember that say the clerk who is waiting on me in a store and might be cranky towards me really isn't angry with me, maybe someone ahead of me gave her a hard time, maybe she has a sick loved one at home she's worried about and on the list could go. When someone is mean to me (if it's not too crude lol) I honestly try hard to say something nice to them and people would be surprised how many people seem to smile after they realize others do care. It's great to be mindful of others too. Thanks for tagging me @Ken Boddie!25/02/2017 #28 Preston 🐝 Vander VenThanks @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. and @🐝 Fatima Williams.

Now I need to get a cat outta the bag;) I have had my share of silence, i must now exercise some poetic licence;)
Allow me a few words on awareness and mindfulness. Awareness is the door, for perception to receive its guests - the sensations, courtesy the senses. Meditation is the stilling of the senses - in a neutral, quiet environment, that automatically clears the mind of its thoughts. You are then aware of only being aware. An emptied / empty mind is a great medium, primed for the highest perception the moment our senses are deployed through acts of intense concentration. Concentration is often done to visualise something when it is not accompanied by physical action. When you visualise with the greatest of clarity and detail, you create. You enable the thought to become a thing. You materialise that into your life in just a matter of some time. But then again, going back, Awareness is always the first condition. The more aware / mindful you are, the higher the quality of meditation or concentration, and the greater the success. ;)24/02/2017 #18 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc.

Comments20/02/2017 #19 Phil FriedmanPowerful piece, Joyce. I temember one evening in the early 90s, my wife and I were parking our car at Bayfront Park in Miami, headed for dinner and a concert at Bayside Marketplace. A homeless young man approached asking if he could clean the car windows for a couple of bucks. We couldn't wait so I told him I give him $10.00 if he would take his time and clean all the windows carefully. But I would have to pay him ahead of time and he would have to work on his own. His face lit up as we shook on it. I gave him the $10.00 and left. What the hell, my wife and I said to each other as we walked away. But when we returned a few hours later not only were the windows clean, but the mirrors, headlight lenses, and wheel rims as well. And now that smile haunts me, always reminding that honor and decency survives even among the most downtrodden, and we should never close our hearts to that truth. I am keeping your story to read again from time to time, also so I don't forget. Cheers!19/02/2017 #5 Todd JonesI try hard to make it a habit to talk to the indigent and offer them $5 or $10. I can't help but feel guilty about my life of abundance when I see human beings scrounging through garbage cans to survive. Sure, many of them are drug and alcohol addled or otherwise detached from reality by obvious mental challenges, but like all of us, they are doing the best they can with the hand they were dealt.
The following is a youtube link to an experiment about what a homeless guy does with $100. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUBTAdI7zuY
Of course not all homeless folks are this benevolent, but hey, you never know how far forward a random act of kindness will reach.
Call me crazy, but I also make it a point to pick up hitchhikers. I believe that people do not walk along a highway in the rain and snow for fun, nor because they are looking for an opportunity to perpetrate ill intent against another human.
Love your posts, btw.

Comments20/02/2017 #13 CityVP 🐝 Manjit"Because a family is the core energy unit of the universe." That is the greatest single line that any human being can speak and is privileged to know. I was in a hotel in Belgium that faced what was clearly the National Stadium of the Belgium football team and its name was the King Baudouin Stadium. It was just a curiousity that my hotel was opposite it.
It is when I took a walk and there was a tram line next to it, that I saw the station name "Heysel". I never connected the two but now I had realized that this was the Heysel Stadium were so many Italian football fans died. The stadium had been rebuilt and now they called it King Baudouin Stadium. From that moment, the stadium I saw from hotel window had a totally different meaning.
Soccer is a tribal thing, but death brings everything down to brass tacks. There was a European final that should have been a showpiece game but crowd disturbance between Liverpool and Juventus supporters led to a poorly designed stadium becoming a death-trap and many Juventus supporters were crushed to death on that day. It is not as if this tragedy was simply an Italian one, immediately the game of football was immaterial, it was the loved one's lost that were important.
Unfortunately tragedy struck Liverpool supporters years later in a FA Cup match in Hillsborough :
So began a long fight for justice for the Hillsborough tragedy families and a 27 year struggle for truth
They were vindicated but what can never be brought back are the individual family members. It showed to me, that for all we talk about tribal this and social that - each of those lost loved one's mattered and everything else was secondary.
Family matters.18/02/2017 #9 🐝 Fatima WilliamsIt’s your tribe and as long as they are together, you know you feel complete.
What a beautiful way to emphasise the importance of family and yes No matter what family comes first and just being with them makes us feel complete. They complete the reason for our existence.
My heart goes out to you @Jim Murray I cannot tell you I know you feel because I believe Noone can ! I know that you are the only comforter to yourself. But I would say that You make beBee a better place for many and you are loved by all.
Praying for your family and you during this difficult time. Much love to all !18/02/2017 #7 David B. GrinbergJim, again please accept my most heartfelt sympathy for your loss. I lost my father several years ago, with whom I had an extremely close lifelong bond. He always took care of me and had my back growing up and even thereafter. Thus, when his health began failing, I moved him -- at his request and my urging -- from the many mediocre hospitals of South Florida to one of the world's best hospital near me. I got him into a special geriatric unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Perhaps I'll write about this at length in my own post at some point. But my point here is that, like so many, I know the hollow feeling of loss and feel for you during such a difficult time. Again, please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers -- and that of so many other bees, I'm sure. God Bless You, Jim. You are a wise man, outstanding writer and communicator, and an overall good soul. In short, YOU make beBee a better place for all. Lastly, I would reiterate what you wrote above for everyone to ponder:
"In today’s ‘divide and conquer’ world there are so many forces working to divide us. Ideologically, by religion, by race, by ethnicity and by ‘have and have not’ standards.
And many people fall prey to these forces, all of which, at their root, are powered by hate and the need to make us dependent on a system and not each other."18/02/2017 #2 Gerald HechtIt's incomprehensibly weird when the death arrives and one sees the chain of family swinging...dangling; all links are vital and when we lose one; things are never gonna be what they were --the (for me) weirdest part in the immediate aftermath are the sounds of people's "well mannered utterances" of condolence...the fact is that it just sucks...and the chain of family is dangling ...and vulnerable.18/02/2017 #1 Joyce Bowen"This love is the room that’s always there for kids to sleep in. This love is the ride to wherever anybody really needs to go. This love is the bail money, you get by hook or by crook. This love is the feeling you get when your family is all in one place together, just being with each other." So beautifully put... Thanks for your thoughts.

Grinberg. I'll repeat what I said in my comment on this thread:on LI.
There are no rules when it comes to love. I’ve seen some couples who have managed to keep their contact in the workplace at the professional level. It is unprofessional behaviour that causes problems. One of these couples got married and continued to work together. As you said, “People can’t always control where and when they meet or become romantically involved. Sometimes it’s just a matter of fate.“
As for Valentine's Day, my husband and I just don't see it as a special day, but as something imposed.13/02/2017 #40 Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador#39 @David B. Grinberg the successful work relationships also remind me of the dangers to existing relationship that can come - Brad Pitt - Angelina Jolie, Newt Gingrich - Callista Bisek come to mind. Hard to say if these are "successful" given they also destroyed existing relationships.13/02/2017 #39 David B. GrinbergThank you so much @Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador @Sarah Elkins @Aleta Curry & @Sandra 🐝 Smith for sharing your important insights. You all make excellent points and share valuable feedback. I also agree with Sarah that you should treat the "love of your life" like every day is Valentine's Day, at least in terms of affection and appreciation (although roses, chocolates, and wine/dining can put a dent in a guy's wallet - lol).
I also concur that sometimes the workplace is the most logical place (for better or worse) to meet someone, especially if you spend long hours in the office or on trips with co-workers with whom you have mutual attractions and interests. However, it could still get dicey when work romance takes a turn for the worse.
Nonetheless, as noted above, "I would be remiss without pointing out that some successful long-term marriages have been known to originate from budding office romance," and "may sometimes be unavoidable if cupid’s arrow strikes and sticks...People can’t always control where and when they meet or become romantically involved. Sometimes it’s just a matter of fate."13/02/2017 #37 Sarah ElkinsFirst, I cannot stand Valentine's Day. When we started dating, I told my (future) husband that I don't like the holiday. I said: "If you're waiting for a Hallmark holiday to tell me and show me that you love me, we're already done. I want to know, every day, why we're together." And here we are nearly 22 years later and he continues to show me, every day, why we're still together. I know, I'm fortunate, but it's not just luck. We use our words, share our needs with each other, and work through frustrations.
I think the same can happen with a workplace romance, IF you're both grown-ups about what you want. Use your words, keep things clear between you. No games, no drama, and you might just work things out! Like @Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador mentioned, with our current working conditions, you may only meet people at work. If you meet at work, you're likely to have at least one thing in common, right? And you know how I feel about trying to keep your personal and professional lives separate. I just don't think it's possible.13/02/2017 #34 Aleta CurryI have to chortle, @David B. Grinberg. Around here, an office romance is a cause for celebration, if not downright amazement. That's because Martin and I are usually the only two in the office, and the routine conversation, such as 'Did you take care of that yet?' is more likely to inspire feelings of wanting to chuck things around than billing and cooing! ;)12/02/2017 #28 🐝 Fatima WilliamsSuch fun to read all the valentines day comments. And @Javier 🐝 beBee if you remember I'm the one who replaced beBee as my love so yes I am in Love with beBee too. ❤❤❤❤❤
And @David B. Grinberg I wish I had met you and read this buzz in 2009 Noone told me this ever not even in school. Anyways better to know now than never 🤗🤗🤗
No to Romance at work is my motto😊
But if time, water and air were to stand still when I see THE guy I won't miss the opportunity 😍😍

- ProducerPersonal Empowerment: Useful Steps To Own Our EmotionsHow do we feel? I mean, how do we really feel? Some of us might worry about these questions. What if someone really would find out how we were doing? What if we would become transparent and reflect the truth of who we really are deep inside of us?...

"We must unlearn to judge ourselves when we feel emotions. Emotions are not good or bad. They are just messengers of information." #Priceless Quote
It's going to take a lot of practice to unlearn to judge ourselves. Why Am I feeling this way ? And I think this is where we need to locate our Chakras to unblock them and create self-healing.
Thanks for buzzing out some empowerment tips @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. 🤗08/02/2017 #4 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc.

Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.#1 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich write in your journal today: "I feel proud to be myself, I make a difference in the world, I am so awesome" and yes, this is about YOU. You are fantastic!!!08/02/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThese are some really empowering steps, @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc..
I feel these words should be on a meme of your creation: "We must unlearn to judge ourselves when we feel emotions. Emotions are not good or bad. They are just messengers of information."
Just like how we judge pain, and jump to numb it, rather than investigate what our body is trying to tell us. We numb our emotions when they are simply providing us guidance and insight about a wrong turn in our life journey. In both cases, the actual answer is to stop doing what is causing the pain, or start doing the healthy thing that relieves the pain.
And talk about useful! I immediately went and got a journal and named it my emotions journal. Just going to work to record what I feel. I have always found that a food journal is a very powerful way to gain control of my diet. And now I bet this very astute approach can help me deal with a lot of overwhelm that has been keeping me from making some clear and actionable decisions.
Right now, I am going to write that I feel helpful. It is not my place to judge whether I only helped myself or whether I maybe help someone else reading this comment. The feeling of having gained simple clarity for a few moments of my day is something to write about!

Comments08/02/2017 #4 Dean Owen#3 I do think voice messages via IM using "press to record" or "hold to talk" will be the next big thing in the West. This is how the young communicate in China. Wechat are approaching 850m monthly active users and they all use the "hold to talk" function. But it won't be good enough for the Silicon Valley giants just to implement the same thing. They need to be working on the next big thing. But any social media giant or wannabe giant needs to pay close attention to Weibo, QQ, Wechat. These companies are really at the leading edge of innovation. Tipping content providers (digital red packets) you like is another thing that has enjoyed a recent boom.08/02/2017 #2 Dean OwenYouths, not really. middle-aged, perhaps. What I see is that the younger generation use social media primarily to communicate with each other in order to enhance their relationships. It is a communication tool, not unlike the phone. With IM and "Press to record" it is actually replacing the phone here in China. The majority of kids don't use social media to promote themselves or something. They use it to communicate with friends, organise meet ups, share photos from the party last night. Obviously some will isolate themselves from the real world, but that happens with or without social media.

Comments06/02/2017 #49 🐝 Fatima Williams#43 What about me How could I miss this buzz @Dean Owen I haven't read the entire buzz yet. It's post 2 am and I came looking for a buzz here to find this exciting trip you made. Remember we talked about my GQRT trip in India. I'm so carried away with work no time to sit and write about that. I hope your fingers are fine now. Frost bites are scary.
I shall read this buzz tomorrow btw if you ever make a trip in India I'm coming there without invitation😉😉😉😉😉03/01/2017 #48 Dean Owen#47 You sound familiar with driving in Shanghai, which must rank as one of the worst cities in the World in terms of driving danger (along with Bangkok and Rome?). Outside of Shanghai, people drive relatively sensibly! Even in Beijing the culture seems to be different, where people do not cut in, changing lanes every nine yards....23/11/2016 #43 Dean Owen#38 lol, had thought about breaking it up but kind of wanted to see how a looong form buzz would do, and was happy for readers just to scroll through the photos. Didn't expect people to read it all but am blown away that many have. India has to be done! Perhaps in 2018. With you and @Sushmita, we already have half the team!22/11/2016 #40 debasish majumderwhat an amazing post @Dean Owen! i vicariously enjoy the beauty and bounty being offered by the nature and the number of countries you so vividly depict, as if i am experiencing the vicinity of the concern land by myself. here lies your exquisite quality to render your post so eloquently, as if the readers are attached immensely by your renditions as if their own experience. kudos to your excellent expression. thank you very much for such wonderful share.22/11/2016 #38 Praveen Raj GullepalliWhoa there Dean!

Gotta come back to it a couple more times though. (After thought: Couldn't you have broken it into a four part series mate ;) ?) So when's that Indian road trip happenin? Am with you on the Southern leg of it...Hyderabad and further South to the subcontinental tip...giddyip giddyip!22/11/2016 #34 Dean Owen#30 That is travel bee @Amour Setter, and I expect that was her R8 after she sold everything to travel the world. Not seen her on beBee recently. I think she is busy in her new job. Anyway, I know you have had the same issue and @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín is working on it.22/11/2016 #33 Dean Owen#29 It read just fine Lisa. I'm deep South of China right now exploring some more, this time using the incredible fast train network. Not as much fun, but fun is fun and a flower is a flower. Pretty bad internet where I am so won't be on much this week, but will report back with coverage in the coming weeks.22/11/2016 #31 Sushmita Thakare Jain@Dean Owen I opened your post and when encountered the post was such a long read thought of just scanning through it and reading later, but man this travel adventure couldn't let me go! I am so glad you shared this it's an amazing adventure which teleported me your images are lovely and thank you for not making the post short it would have lost its beauty. Sharing your adventure ahead dear 😊 . Keep exploring and buzzing ✌
