    This is a comment a made in the comment box which I felt I needed to share with all of you "Outside the Comment Box".

    Attention to all readers and @Javier beBee. I am experiencing, in real time, a cross pollination in which I am commenting on this post on how Jared's comment adds to the work I am doing as a result of another post. As well, I found myself this morning cross pollinating across social network when I shared on beBee a post from linkedin which also supports the work I am doing and contributes to the discussions I have had on beBee. I am writing all this as to show how the idea of affinity and engagement, and beBee's role as a bridge with other networks is coming to life on a daily basis. Hurray to all!

    @Deb Lange- in response to a comment by @Deb Helfrich- I wrote a buzz today on why I failed to drink water. I think this post would be interesting to you

    "One of the best ways to better appreciate the power of curiosity is to start exercising it more consciously in your daily experiences.

    The best way to exercsie this is to ask questions.

    I often find that in social media their is an image factor that gets in the way of the growth process as everyone is attempting to find recognition for the understanding they share. Because of this I find there can be a tendency to ignore the counter and avoid the debate on the concepts because of the self image factor and not wanting to have oneself shown inaccurate.

    This is human behavior and it falls upon the individual acknowledge growth only happens outside of your comfort zone.

    I find that we are too focused on knowing and doing with no focus on truly understanding what we think we know that inspires us to do.

    To say we know something is to say we know it in its totality and there is nothing I know in totality other than myself and we never totally know ourselves because we never have all the experiences to reveal the doing we would do regardless of the knowing.

    It is in the doing we find out if the knowledge is true or false and we begin to find wisdom.

    #56 As you so often do for others, I have to encourage you, @Ali Anani to expand this comment into a full buzz, as the implications for every human are too great to have it buried. The 3 simplest, yet most important things we can do are drink water, breathe, and sleep - there are profound health benefits to getting these 3 right. And dire consequences when we let the contemporary lifestyle pressure us to neglect our own right balance of proper hydration, respiration, and sleep.

    Passionate curiosity about the best way to optimize our own bodies is part of being in a dynamic community of people who aren't hurting, either physically or emotionally, and therefore can contribute their best selves - mind, body, and spirit.

    Thank you for the mention, Ali. Concerning your comments about water and how the lack of it will affect your health, water will help fuel vitality. So don't neglect yourself by not drinking enough water.

    BTW, your posts and you including others in the post itself or via the comments is an excellent way to engage with passionate vitality.

    Dear @Mohammed Sultan- you give me something to think about: Creativity = Analytics + Curiosity. Equally interesting is that Curiosity is a source of energy. I wonder what @Harvey Lloyd thinks as he mentioned energy in his last comment. Harvey wrote "The light is (the outcome or trial and error) where energy is applied". Could we amalgamate the two and say trial and error that leads to more curiosity is the source of energy (like light for trees)? I greatly appreciate your comment Mohammed for we are all trying and learn from our errors and hopefully, increasing or curiosity to learn more.

    Dear @ Ali Anani.PhD.Thanks for sharing your creative slogan.When we think of the research process from data collection and analysis to reaching a conclusion ,curiosity is the state by which we maintain an open mind and spirit of inquiry and helps in looking for things in a different way.unlike our judgement which can lead us to a "prison" of familiarity or to fall victim to our held beliefs ,curiosity can free and lead us to the gate of creativity.We often shape our strategic decisions by being more curious.This why we often say creativity is more powerful than analytics when it comes to designing an effective strategy.Here I can say with confidence that Creativity= Analytics+curiosity.In our research process curiosity is the "energy" that enhance the speed and power of our interpretations and creates the interest and desire for our follow up action of the research findings.

    #54 Dear @Deb Lange- let me confess to you. I lived in the Gulf and other places for years and temperature and humidity there are on the extremes. In spite of my knowledge and understanding of the importance of water to our bodies I was very neglectful in drinking enough amounts of water. I would even say I rarely did. All my family tend to have blood pressure towards the low end, except for I. Almost 20 years back I suffered from blood pressure. Nobody expected that because I have inner peace and no genetic problems. One time my blood pressure reached 190/140!!! No medical specialist could figure out the causes. I had to go on medicine to deal with it. Recently, when I suffered from other and compounded health problems, an MD did a quick checkup and told me you don't enough water. I warn you of the consequences". This time I knew, I understood and I acted. Because the MD had regularly to check my blood pressure we was surprised. My blood pressure dropped to 110/70. Many other health problems disappeared. Apparently, accumulation of salts in my body raised my blood pressure. Drinking water in plentiful amounts for a month acted like magic.
    I say this because I want to give a personal example of the applicability of your great comment

    #50 Dear @Ali Anani your metaphor talks of the seeds needing knowledge & doing. Sara Jacobovici says we need understanding - and I think she is talking about the experience of the here and now in our physicality, not is some abstract way.

    If we use plants and seeds as a metaphor for people and how they learn and grow, it makes me ask questions about water, air, energy, our body.

    Our emotional state affects our energy, affects the water in our body, affects our DNA, effects our sensing and thinking and physical health. We are 70%water. We know our intentions and what we think change water crystals outside of us, so we must also change the water crystals inside our bodies when we are thinking & sensing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAvzsjcBtx8

    Deepak Chopra shares his view that the human body is pure energy. Our emotional state has an effect on our body, our brain & our genes to the point of affecting our DNA structures.

    Everything is connected. Yet, when we act and think as if we are separate from our body, whther we know it or not, we are affecting the water molecules, physical DNA, and energy in our body and we get illnesses.

    If we get physical illnesses, do we also get infected thinking? Thinking that is cut off from the whole, cut off from our physical reality and the physical reality of life around us? Will we become more creative and act more like plants who communicate with their root system, branches, light, air, water, senses, smell & energy? When we regain our connection with ourselves as nature connected to the natural world what new possibilities & latent intelligence will open to us?

    #47 Seed>Soil>Water>Light @Ali Anani. This could be the basis of reviewing the human experience. The seed representing an idea or even a person. The soil is the fertile ground of knowledge and environmental understanding, while the water would be the brain's ability to float this new knowledge into action between others.

    The light is (the outcome or trial and error) where energy is applied. This is where the process starts over. WIth the reflection of what the light has returned to our system, we can then plant new seeds.

    This cycle may be labeled the cycle of wisdom. (Curisoisty/need=need for knowledge=skills to apply knowledge=observation of outcome=adjustments/new knowledge=reapplication)=Wisdom

    #80 An invaluable comment and a great contribution to the discussion @Jared Wiese. Well written! You have given me more to consider in my work as I pull together an equation that results in action. I look forward to inlcuding your comment (with proper credit) in my work. Thanks.

    @Ali Anani, I see this as relevant to the process of the equation or in adding the equation of choice. Lots of work, but well worth it. Plus as I am working on the real work example of the fractal trajectories of emotions and am beginning to think that the equation(s) is connected. Again, lots of work.

    #79 If I understand your point @Jared Wiese, there is an increased impact with the number of "stings". Very true, how we cope with one onslaught is often easier than those coming from a mass. The complexity lies in the fact that each individual is unique in how their system responds. Some are allergic to bee stings and are very threatened by that single sting. While others have built up a strong netting that doesn't allow the bees to penetrate.

    Part 6...

    I see the following ties to Sara's cognitive dissonance:
    Robbins talks about personal rules in https://www.tonyrobbins.com/mind-meaning/our-set-of-rules/
    'Where do these rules come from? Did you just make them up as you went along? The answer is: they stem from your beliefs and from your values.

    Your beliefs and values were adopted by you as you grew up. Ever hear the phrase “you are who your friends are”? We pick up little pieces of other people — the

    characteristics that we like. Then, we discard the characteristics that we don’t like. The end result are your existing values and beliefs. Both of these help you to

    determine whether something is “good” or “bad.”

    Our rules shape us, they make up who we are. There’s nothing wrong with that! It’s when our rules become unreasonable and make our relationships more difficult that we

    need to re-evaluate and re-shape our beliefs and our values so they create more harmony, not conflict.'

    ...This leads to values:

    Robbins wrote about values hierarchy and a ranking of Moving-Toward Values:

    Part 5...
    In Dr. Anani's buzz, The Positive Side of Negative Emotions, he asserts that opposites co-exist. I'd agree. This is the paradox of life. I touched on these opposites a bit in Part 3 with Covey.

    Robbins worked with Dr. Chloe Madanes to come up with The Six Human Needs, the human paradox:

    Part 4...

    I read through the post more. I find the discussion topic fascinating.

    Having followed a lot of the work by Tony Robbins, I would say, YES, that negative emotions have a huge benefit/role in enabling us to function to our optimum? In fact, much of what is being discussed in this post has ties back to ideas Robbins has presented.

    Negative emotions serve us if we are willing to listen. Google: negative emotions tony robbins

    The first result is an awesome summary:

    "Negative emotions are Action Signals.
    You can use how you feel to make your life better. While negative emotions may be painful, they may also be our best friend. We can use negative emotions to change the quality of our life immediately.

    Use Emotions as a Call to Action
    I was listening to Tony Robbins talk about how we could master our emotions. He said that the key to mastering emotions is to use them as a call to action.
    Every emotion has a message for you. Appreciate the message. Negative emotions are a signal that change is needed.
    You can either change your perception or change your approach."

    Most of the other Google results refer to Action Signals too.

    I believe this directly and succinctly answers Sara's opening discussion question.

    Part 3...
    I love your "Being aware of our emotions and being able to tolerate and hold tension is hard work. Please remember to provide yourself with spaces of rest. Remember to breathe."

    This sounds a lot like the stimulus/response concept from Frankl/Covey...

    A) Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. -Viktor E. Frankl

    B) Stephen Covey used this quote as a huge basis for his THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE book.
    Per https://www.stephencovey.com/7habits/7habits-habit1.php :

    Your life doesn't just "happen." Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by you...
    You choose happiness. You choose sadness...
    You choose success. You choose failure.
    You choose courage. You choose fear...
    Just remember that every moment, every situation, provides a new choice. And in doing so, it gives you a perfect opportunity to do things differently to produce more positive results.

    ...Proactive people recognize that they are "response-able."... They know they choose their behavior. Reactive people, on the other hand, are often affected by their physical environment. They find external sources to blame for their behavior. If the weather is good, they feel good. If it isn't, it affects their attitude and performance, and they blame the weather. All of these external forces act as stimuli that we respond to. Between the stimulus and the response is your greatest power--you have the freedom to choose your response. One of the most important things you choose is what you say. Your language is a good indicator of how you see yourself. A proactive person uses proactive language--I can, I will, I prefer, etc. A reactive person uses reactive language--I can't, I have to, if only. Reactive people believe they are not responsible for what they say and do--they have no choice.

    I'm going to break my comments into parts as I will present a lot of info and some may want to reply to just portions.

    So, Part 2...

    In my initial response to the post, I would like to tie the pain and negative emotions to a bee sting simile.
    - In the weakest example, the idea of pain and negative emotions can be like the sting of one bee. (It must be a negative bee ;) Kind of hurts, maybe even throbs a bit at times, but isn't going to kill or change you. You might feel a bit negative and even curse that darn bee! But that's about it.
    - In the strongest example, if you get swarmed by stinging bees, you cannot ignore it! How many people will NOT be changed and look for ANY way to avoid that situation immediately and in the future?

    Hi Sara,
    I love your opening:
    "This buzz is a direct result of a buzz... a comment... the direction in which their ideas have propelled me"

    Isn't that so often the case with our 'collective consciousness' - especially on beBee? I think half the fun is waiting to see what comments come from a post and to then see where it goes.

    #75 For me, it is responsibility that is key; until individuals take responsibility for their verbal and non-verbal behaviors it will continue...

    Here is how this comes across to me.

    It removes the responsibility from those who insist that the current terms be used as the standard when it reality they are part of what creates the problem within the shared reality to begin with.

    To just drop knowledge and then leave it up to people to be responsible with it is like handing a loaded gun to six year old then claiming they should have known better.

    Knowledge is not enough. One needs to understand what that knowledge means in the real world, in the doing that can enable action or movement.

    Knowledge is meaningless until it is applied through experience to find it if it true of false knowledge. This is how wisdom is gained and the enlightened view is reached.

    I hope you understand it;s the concepts I am debating not you as a person, we just happen to wind up in this location for the opportunity for both to share and grow.
    Sara Jacobovici
    24/11/2016 #75 Sara Jacobovici
    At this point of our exchange, it feels like a fine tuning; you are enabling me to understand where I'm coming from in a better way and to take something from your perspective that adds to my point of view.

    For example: enabling me to understand...
    "...until the language changes it will continue..." For me, it is responsibility that is key; until individuals take responsibility for their verbal and non-verbal behaviors it will continue...

    For example: taking something...
    "By understanding the separation is only in the mind and is based in the idea of physical location." Knowledge is not enough. One needs to understand what that knowledge means in the real world, in the doing that can enable action or movement.

    This is the beauty of our exchanges @Max Carter. From our discussion, I now have made a connection to another discussion from another post. It is all connected!
    Max Carter
    24/11/2016 #74 Max Carter
    #73 Sarah I think the point I am trying to make is this.

    My job would be a lt easier of those who had a voice used it to pout an end to old systems that promote abuse that brings clients to me that at times I spend over a year helping them repair themselves because everyone around them has classified them as negative or their behavior as negative and never dove below the surface to find the real issue.

    Because most people don't do the study that you and I do they take these terms and just run with them. They use them to justify abusive behavior and until the language changes it will continue and it will lead to a lot of damage for a lot of people that could be spared by simply changing the language.

    I have seen to many people who are the result of this to ever have a doubt in my mind that what I am speaking is true. .

    My certainty is based on a life time of study and research and experience in this arena on this very topic.

    how can I move towards unity without experiencing and being in the different state of separation?

    By understanding the separation is only in the mind and is based in the idea of physical location.

    Emotional and thought energy has no mass and therefore travels instantaneously across any distance as if there was none. This is why I can check on a friend using my empathic skills anywhere in the world and experience their emotional state momentarily with them. Being an Empath and understanding all that is also showed me the errors of duality.
    Sara Jacobovici
    24/11/2016 #73 Sara Jacobovici
    #72 All the power to you @Max Carter. I mean that sincerely. You are committed to a viewpoint that has made a difference in your life and you are helping others do the same. Each journey is different. In a way, I consider everything we do as a movement towards unity, but what that unity means or looks like is still abstract. Also, how can I move towards unity without experiencing and being in the different state of separation? The one thing that I can relate to is when you say, "if one hangs on to concepts such as duality it can cause a psychotic episode and a split personality to form." You can substitute any word for duality and then have other lists of causes attached anytime we get stuck in one isolated view of the world.
    Max Carter
    24/11/2016 #72 Max Carter
    #71 @Sara Jacobovici i understand what you are saying, and once upon a time i would have agreed with you. However in order to achieve unity and being aligned full in mind, body and spirit one has to leave duality in concept behind.

    It was something I struggled with until I had the experience of unity. Duality only serves the internal purpose to give a better idea of what is socially acceptable based n loosely agreed upon metaphors such as good and evil that are totally subjective.

    Or to say I have been on your side of this dialog and I remember it is not an easy transition to the level of acceptance of the totality of oneself and what one is truly capable of is not something to easily embrace and if one hangs on to concepts such as duality it can cause a psychotic episode and a split personality to form.

    It can also lead to a God complex. Climbing the ladder of conscious level awareness is not easy as it takes re= evaluating you entire life and everything you were ever taught. Guiding people through and accelerating this experience is what I do. Its how grew to understand the concepts so well. I had to break myself of them first before i could do the work I do.
    Sara Jacobovici
    24/11/2016 #71 Sara Jacobovici
    #70 Thanks for sharing your perspective @Max Carter. From my perspective duality exists from preconception; you can't form life without the two coming together to form the one. The two existed before the formation of the one. We wouldn't be here exchanging our point of views if it were not for the existence of duality coming together to form us. Along our road of development, growth, interaction with ourselves, others and our environment, we take fragments of our experiences and we create whole meanings. Each meaning then becomes a fragment of a bigger whole and so on. Meanings fall into other fragments such as beliefs and value, and so on...The meaning of tolerance is one that is being explored here. Ideas are being exchanged, shared and discussed. I find this a healthy environment. We are engaged in an intellectual exercise; we are building thought muscles. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function." I share that point of view.
    Max Carter
    24/11/2016 #70 Max Carter
    It's duality and the use of terms and concepts of positive and negative emotions that stop people from uniting mind, body and sprint and keep them from evolving in thought.

    One is one and not a fractured thing and taking ones emotions and classifying them as positive or negative is the act of creating a harmful view of oneself and by proxy all ones and one will abuse other ones based on ones view of what is positive and negative.

    These terms are totally subjective and create abusive behaviors.

    The greatest aid one can be to oneself or other ones is to investigate the situation that has brought out this emotional response. Otherwise one is judging and condemning based on the preconceived idea that the other is being negative or that their emotions are negative.

    @Sara Jacobovici, it is always an honor to have a mention in your writing as it is to take part in discussion of your 'out of the comment box' buzzes! I agree we cannot blame the politicians, or anyone else for that matter. The U.S.A. is about 'we the people'. We, each individual, has the responsibility to act according to the demands we are placing on the Government. It is so important that as a nation we purposely connect with one another. Community must be revived in a much bigger and deeper way. This is where I find great value in what you have shared about " a “holding” environment": an environment that allows you to safely feel taken care of, protected, understood, accepted unconditionally, and held in such a way that your consciousness ... can grow spontaneously and naturally on its own." If we live for detached from the community; the group, dare I say-the world, will suffer. As I wrote in comment to @Deb Lange's buzz on this matter, with freedom comes responsibility. We often forget that. This election is forcing us to remember.

    Thank you @Ian Weinberg for the continued exchange and for your link. I would suggest that a very important thread in your work is the "life narrative" you refer to. Stories are both individual and collective. They have a place in history for transmitting information across generations. Culturally, stories have been used to teach the children about who we are and the world around us. And so we internalize stories we hear. In this way our life narrative and story is formed internally. What is an important piece of work is developing the awareness of whose voices narrate different parts of our story and when and how we use our own voice. Not an easy process but definitely worth the effort.

    @Sara Jacobovici thanks for a valid and thought-provoking contribution to the subject. Based on my intervention experience, I would add that the intrinsic limiting belief bias can be a hard nut to crack ( I actually crack nuts professionally, both literally and figuratively!). It really boils down to the prevailing life narrative. There are varying degrees of receptivity ranging from not even acknowledging that there is a blind-spot through recognizing but not being able to transcend the blind-spot to the other extreme, being able to transcend with appropriate intervention and inspiration. And so my approach has always been to contribute as much value as I can to self, other individuals and to the extended environment in the hope that there's some receptivity and traction. It may be of some interest in this regard, to peruse an earlier post of mine which engaged this subject - see https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/challenging-limiting-beliefs-20993

    What an engaging post @Sara Jacobovici. I read both of the pieces you linked and was somewhat bewildered by the group think display.

    Your statement "tribe vs individual" are where my interests lie. Do we reflect a core set of values in our behavior or do we react to our environment to achieve a certain reflection from our behaviors? This question is the study of many hours by great folks, yet the answer is sometimes elusive within the individual. I like the quote by Friedrich Nietzsche.

    It would appear that the election process has demonstrated, on both sides, group think is a powerful force when polarized. Being an individual grants us the opportunity to grow through observation, yet moves us closer or further away from the tribes within our environment. A personal conundrum when we consider our options within social groups.

    One of the "brain" shows demonstrated the strength of group think by asking a simple multiple choice question. Instead of giving an answer the subject would have to walk and stand in one of four roped off areas labeled A-D. They placed a group in the wrong answer. A large percentage of the subjects chose the group. Amazingly the few that choose the right answer looked weird standing away from the group. The ones that choose the group stated they didn't want to appear stupid and were willing to fail with the group even though they new it was the wrong answer. A few ignored the group and stood alone.

    Your courage to write such a post, was encouraging and engaging. Bravo!

    Just combining three segments that I read in this buzz shows how powerful this bizz is. These segments are:
    The only blind spot that exists is the internal, in the moment, when taking in information. But because we know there is a blind spot, it is our responsibility to compensate, strategize and adapt.
    We are a part of this dynamic existence we call life, not passive receivers or observers. It is within the tension of what is and isn’t in our control, fighting for our individuality while living in a community and the choices we make, that moves us on our chosen paths. Sara Jacobovici
    The “luck factor”, as he called it, was the most important one to keep in mind when we are learning psychological development. This doctor and professor at an internationally renowned United States teaching hospital felt it necessary to teach us that an immeasurable factor is an important influence on the measurable development of the human psyche

    Luck comes to those people who deserve it. People who live in the tension of opposites and try to make the best out of it. The tension of knowing what is controllable and what isn't and adapting to it.
    I couldn't agree more with you @Sara Jacobovici and I am truly enlightened. Thank you

    Interesting perspective @Sara Jacobovici. I love the lyrics on the meme from Micheal Jackson's song. That was actually one of my favorites later in the years because it has a lot of meaning. We are the change we seek and it must begin with us first. I've seen a lot of group think mentality over the years while following politics and I've always been one to think outside of the box. I hate punditry, and repetitive catch phrases the media uses over and over. One thing I learned long ago is that we need to realize we can be persuaded to believe almost anything if we don't fact check and REMEMBER that many times people are trying to throw others off their game (distractions) which helps to aid them (the Politicians) to avoid topics that are very relevant to everyone. And, there is group think mentality that many get caught up in too, a very dangerous scenario for our country and life in general if we don't take time to reflect and think for ourselves. It does take courage to be your own person.

    Great post @Sara Jacobovici - so much of this comes back to a deep need for embodied awareness. If I am aware, that throughout my childhood my parents did the best they could, but, they were also living with the struggles of being brought up by their parents, and they were living with theirs etc etc, we can be compassionate for our parents and families. After we have realised we are all in this together, doing the best that we can, then perhaps we can start looking at how we are creating our lives. Are we blindly creating the same as our family of origin as we are doing this by osmosis, or have we chosen to look at the values and beliefs inherent in the way we are thinking, doing, emoting, sensing, voicing and being, and in doing so freely choose the values we want to express in our actions. One of the problems is not all of us know how to uncover our blindspots, and how to uncover our values and beliefs inherent in our actions. Most people are not taught these things in their families, schools or workplaces. The good thing is when we make a commitment we can learn to open our awareness. This new awareness gives us more choice in who we are being at any given time.

    Passion can run so deep @Sara Jacobovici. I agree with @Fatima Williams you don't need to be an expert at something to make change or do something different. I even find passion in the simple things, such as the birds chirping right before the sun rises, the tides of the ocean and the smells I take in when near the ocean, out in the forest- these things remind me of the innocence of a child. Pure wonderment we had within us as children. If we can be aware of those passions that stirred us as children, I believe it's always possible to expound on those passions. Many of those scents, noises and senses allowed me to fantasize or dream as a child, I still find myself doing that and yes, I act on some of my dreams as I'm able.

    Ah, @Sara Jacobovici and @Ali Anani, Again rises the question of passion. What is my passion from where does it come from. Every since I wrote that piece I still occasionally contemplate the question. I think you're correct in your thought that it is a hybrid emotion. I can't associate my passion to an emotion, but instead emotions seem to arise from the passion. A perfect example: today at work I was facing a tedious task that was going to take hours/days but then that 'exploring' part of me kicked in and I went on a search for a 'quick fix' you might say (at least less tedious). Before I knew it that internal motivation, that passion that drives me to discover arose. I was on a personal quest and when I'm there, in my mind world, I feel elated. Then I found the fix and I turned hours/days of tedious work into minutes. I felt like I was Columbus and I had just discovered the New World. It didn't matter that the 'fix' already existed in the software I was using, I discovered it for myself, I learned today, my mind expanded just a little. Whoopee!

    "It has been said that trees are imperfect men, and seem to bemoan their imprisonment rooted in the ground. But they never seem so to me. I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!" ~John Muir, July 1890.

    #14 Precisely that's the Point, my dearest @DILMA BALBI -Contratos e Gestão The only thing on which we can have absolute control is in our thoughts. It needs a little of training, starting at a point that nobody can tell you what your thoughts must be. To exchange good or bad energy is a choice, but if you have no control about your thoughts, you will lose control about the type of energy you are sharing. Accumulating bad thoughts about someone or something will release feelings accordingly. But feelings are more difficult to control. Love is the most powerful feeling, like anger is. Positive feelings though, last more time and have more permanent effects than negative feelings. So cultivating good thoughts will produce good feelings, which will produce good energy to share. Control your thoughts and you will control your energy. Sometime ago I wrote a quite extense post about it, please have a look at it

    #13 Your comment gives me the chance to explain my ideas a little bit more clear, I hope and thank you for that :-)
    In fact, good and bad are adjectives and I feel, as times go on , difficult to link then to other words.
    I mean, I am not able to control the good or bad energy I exchange when I get in touch with people .. And I think they are not able at the same way.
    But I wonder if I could be more opened to really get in touch with people I would be able to feel what is needed and the "magic" could take place.
    Sometimes when you meet a friend or someone else you do like you can "feel" what its needed at that moment. And your friend or lover can also feel what you need at that moment...It can be called intuition, sense number 5, what ever...
    My thoughts goes to this point: energy is love at the end .. Not the "eros"love like Plato's said nor the "filia" like Aristoteles...
    that other one description of love ... The one who deep cares about others...Other no matter whom, not others I like , may you understand?
    Easy? of course not,, too difficult !!

    #11 Effectively, when it is related to magnetic fields, positive and negative are same energy wearing different clothes.
    When we talk about emotional energy, positive energy clearly helps you to go on.
    Negativity normally hinders you to act, although it can well be, like many times in my case, that I over react with much more positive energy when facing negativity, to compensate and as a self-defense technique not to be contaminated with negativity.
    It works most of the cases, as other people can not assume/understand/counter attack with more negativity to positivity.
    And if so, I use to go on and on, so the negative one gets bored, pissed off, or loses his nerves going to wrath, in which case, is a clear victory, as being and keeping positive gives you calm and control.

    Even if you say you feel confused (English is not our mother tongue), you exposed an interesting fact.
    "when we lose the control to give and receive precisely what its needed"
    This thought awakens some questions on me:
    -When we give, how can we be sure we are giving what others are willing to receive?
    -When we give, how can we be sure we are giving what others need?
    Both things could be very different.
    -When we receive and we don't get what it was expected, how do we react?
    -Give and take process can always be controlled? needs to be controlled?

    #9 I wondered about positive and negative energy. Aren't they the same energy "wearing different "clothes"? I also had the experience of feell tired after get in touch with some people..like they had the "ability "of take or steal my "good energy" .. But .. had they had this ability? Do I also have this ability?
    or it happens when we loose the control to give and receive precisely what its needed...not in a conscious process...humm... it a little bit complicated to explain it.. I am just "thinking" in a "loud voice" .. Excuse me my friend @David Navarro López .. My ideas could be a little bit confuzed at the end

    #7 Healthy relationships are based in balanced give-and-take. It is my personal target to give at least as much as energy as i become. With some people this does not work at all, as rhey only take, and sometimes, steal your positive energy by giving in return negative energy. Lucky me i have found people like you who reacts to positive energy with even more of it. The more people participates on it, the more bubbling efect happens, in an exponential progression. I am sorry to say that if i am bringing much positive energy, it is not only due to me, but in a bigger part, due to the rest of bees on this hive

    #2 Then it would be fair to conclude that to keep a bubble/idea surviving, the "materials" you use to form the idea should be honest and plain, should be "contagious", and enough energy has to be given to it, and keeping on "blowing" to make it rise above others.
    You have a beautiful mind, @Fatima Williams , this is a real pearl.

    #43 A slow processor is a fascinating individual, they teach us patience and humility. I think top of the tree on my stupid category would be narcissists, and they might even be a professor or a philosopher, it all comes down to how we see intelligent action. To be intelligent does not mean knowing stuff, for me, it means being intelligent to existence. When I am stupid to existence, then I am stupid, but unless I have a bad hair day, I generally tend not to be.

    We´re lucky that we have the awareness that we have to continue learning. I thought about beauty and women. While they are in their most flawless state they are the most insecure and often even unhappy. Sometimes, only when the beauty changes and lovable flaws start to develop do they start to really embrace and enjoy it.

    What you are saying about evolution (trees will survive us, maggots, lizards ... ) reminded me: Yesterday I briefly read (I´ll have to deepen my knowledge about this research) that they found ... well here is the post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2016/03/30/cornell-study-finds-some-people-may-be-genetically-programmed-to-be-vegetarians/

    CityVP Manjit

    Everything evolves, tree's have evolved in both the time of the dinosaurs and the time of human beings. To understand a male tree and a female tree or a tree that can be both male and female, and a boy flower and a girl flower, is to understand the wonder of nature. The dinosaurs would have been around just long enough to begin digesting flowering trees, but the main tree in their era were conifers and ferns.

    Whether the human race has longevity or it too goes the way of the dinosaur, one thing is for sure, tree's predate us and may even survive us. This means that human beings are still evolving. We are not yet evolved enough as a human race to fully embrace the wonder of nature that creates male and female aspects and that is what is important, rather than the way human beings have been conditioned to react to gender through cultural conditioning.

    There are plenty of old men who will go to their graves with minds that they will refuse to evolve, stuck in their ways they will be, and some even may not paying attention to their estrogen balance, if it brings fear in their hearts that their bodies contain a female hormone http://www.lifeextension.com/magazine/2010/5/why-estrogen-balance-is-critical-to-aging-men/page-01

    Tree's are therefore highly evolved and their evolution can teach us how to survive the ages in a way that dinosaurs could not. There is a bias that I do have, I want to engage intelligent women and men, and avoid stupid men and stupid women. As we evolve, this is the shifting balance which will lead us to renaissance - and tree's are a symbol of that renaissance.

    #4 #9 @Sara Jacobovici When I read this: "When it comes to survival, we can't do it alone, we need each other. Nothing wrong with that." I was thinking of something someone said earlier on LI about "growing alone together", which is one of the actively researched topics in social media. Yet, looking through a different prism, I do not feel alone. In contrast to any preconceived notions of exacerbating the problem with solipsism (that of me only knowing that I exist but not being able to know about the existence of other minds or even if existence itself exists), social media has most certainly helped me communicate with people from other countries. This global citizenship and global outreach was never before possible, prior to the advent of the Internet.

    Global citizenship exists without regards to social boundaries, our social status, where we grew up or what our background/culture is.

    @Francis our role in life has become more clouded, but this can be taken as a challenge and opportunity for many people who figure out the best way to navigate our highly complex web. It is an opportunity to be human again and give to others, without requesting anything in return. This is the best quality of a human being; it is something that I am happy to see becoming important in the 21st century. Philosophers like myself feel empowered in this new Age of Aquarius and today we are what were yesterday's leaders. We lead with passion, love, sympathy for everyone and without interest :-)

    #29 Well, my dear Irene, even a broken leg can be a source of growth if you do great things you would otherwise not have done while you heal. I did not expand on "pain" because my argument was that pain is the cause of irrational thinking - not that it is always bad. It´s also not the only source of irrational thinking. Also, people who suffer a lot of emotional pain are often stronger. Others break.

    I really enjoyed this buzz @Aurorasa Sima. You made a lot of great points like this one- "Trees are not fearful. For they know they can handle most obstacles and when they can´t they´ve already spread seeds to be reborn. " One thing about the human spirit as analogy to spreading seeds is that we can regroup and spread new seeds with hopes that our minds are reborn through positive actions and dialect. These are great conversations to be holding. And, the fact that trees and fruit spend their lifespan without knowing fear or having to be mindful of emotions is something we as humans have to work on daily. I think life is a lesson that is on-going until our time on earth is over. When we stop learning, we stop living.

    Dear @Aurorasa Sima - please don't every 'quickly' feel you must 'quickly' leave a discussion here on beBee, all are welcome and all have a valuable contribution to make. Your boldness is so refreshing and there is much truth and reality in your point of view. There is much to discuss throughout this great buzz, however I shall focus on your following statement: "The gift of rational thinking can be a tough one. The ability of rational thinking is affected by emotions. Especially painful emotions lead to irrational thinking and therefore fear." Is it possible that painful emotions and fear also be viewed as a different sort of "gift"? Powerful, positive change and human transcendence often gets its fuel from pain and fear. I'm not saying pain and fear is like receiving a happy, pretty package with a bow. There is value in painful emotion and a place for healthy fear. Growth. So great dear @Ali Anani to see these great offshoots from your ideas!

    I'll rephrase the first part by breaking it up, @Peter van Doorn, does:
    "Actions are weighted by intention"
    tally with your statement:
    "the stimulation to take the first step".

    And, if the road to hell is paved with good intentions then they must not be good. The context of that proverb is very important and determines its significance. There's another offshoot from it in social sector development circles that goes "the path to development is littered with good intentions".

When I first read Tolle's 'Power of Now' many years ago, I was not ready for where it was pointing. Today it resonates with me, strongly. As you say "watching the watcher"; for me - it's the witnessing of the mental activity - becoming aware of the ego - the stories surrounding that "little me". Here's one of my favorite quotes of his: "When you no longer believe everything you think, you step out of thought and see clearly that the thinker is not who you are." We may be what my insightful 26 year old calls: "leveling up", a 'gamer' term - but so cleverly used to describe an awakening of sorts.

    And it is no accident that we have been brought together in thought - here on this technological freeway of connections - synchronicity @Peter van Doorn! I too feel the strong sense of mystery in it. Can the grasping of concepts and ideas be released in order to allow what 'is' to unfold naturally before us, without our labeling it as good, bad or indifferent? This may be close to 'being'. Even accepting our resistance to 'just being' can be 'freeing'. I am learning to trust all of life - including the mysteries - those things where understanding may never be found. We are learning from one another as we move together in space in time. It is a dance and it is beautiful.

    How did you become to realize this Peter? Have you also come to learn through experience what 'turning the other cheek' means? Do you listen with another ear? Another radio station perhaps? What I found is that the old rules were no longer relevant, so there hád to be another way. Over time this happened, a truth disappeared. I could then ask; Because there is One, is there an Other?
    Evil is the absence of Good. One depends on the existence of the Other. Both are within Your own reach. We also know that what we are, we attract. If I have no judgement about another person, the other will have no judgement about me isn't it? That way, for me at least, there is a possibility for honesty within the other to take form. Easy to say, hard to implement, worth the trouble.

    #11 Thank you @Irene Hackett for the mention of Tolle's thoughts about the subject. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bZqYMGJ6BM

    I started conscientiously (or is it consciously?) my personal journey into consciousness after reading Eckhart's book the Power of Now. What I have learnt over those nine years since is what I am aware off today. The most impressive quote from Tolle I pass on is: Who is watching the watcher? The most similar experience I have to his writing is when he describes his time on a bench in a park in Londen. As he became aware of something that he had longed for with all his desire, when the Universe presented him with that véry possibility, he did not see that his greatest wish passed him by, becáuse he was consumed in thought - he bursted out in so much laughter that people wondered on what illegal substance he was. In my experience: After about seven times, you loose the effect of thought - and these uncontrollable periods of spontaneous laughter. It truly is an amazing experience that can only be had by practicing to be free.

    10/09/2016 #12 Frans van Wamel
    There are no errors Peter. What you 'see' as an error, is a judgement about how "it" should be. If you hold the perception that you must write 100% in proper English, (am I?) before you can participate, then thát will hold you back, to pick up energy from what you could have received from the the way others perceived the reality of that moment. I am attempting to include the rhythm of my speech, in my writing to you. Sound advice, in more ways than one - if you get my drift. Even today I still pick up a wrong word here and there and use it in the wrong context. In the past I destroyed my self-worth completely and utterly by being ashamed about 'it', as either a laughter or total confusion arose from what I wrote (or said in conversational situations). In other words: if you make 'it' a problem, it will become reality. Thoughts become matter.

    Dear @Peter van Doorn, this is a quite deep and meaningful buzz. There is much of ourselves found in such honest sharing and it is in such openness wherein lies the power of healing and creation. I find myself in the same place as you when you say: "I love these question marks." And perhaps it is in surrender and acceptance, 'radical acceptance' that may be 'the secret' you refer to. Surely life itself is fleeting and life is imperfect. And thus, can we 'allow' the present moment to simply 'be', with all it's imperfection? The flow of life allows all things to rise up and to pass away. What ensues if we find ourselves flowing against life's natural current? I am contemplating of late, something I read by Eckhart Tolle: "When you surrender, your sense of self shifts from being identified with a reaction or mental judgment to being the 'space' around the reaction or judgement. It is a shift from identification with form - the thought or the emotion - to being and recognizing yourself as that which has no form - spacious awareness." There is freedom and peace in the here and now. The enlightened ones pointed to it. We may be closer to 'it' with such continued honest sharing, for which I thank you dear Peter, and to @Frans van Wamel as well. Peace and blessings my friends. Please keep sharing!

May I make it known that you and I have something in common dear friend, which is our great affinity for this wonderful man who is giving us more than he can imagine with his poetic verse and loving support of our participating in his thought process! My favorite line in this grand post dear @David Navarro López is "But no doubt about it, one day a small mass with high speed “bubble” will appear, and its kinetic energy will put in motion a bigger potential mass of ideas which were “latent” ever since". No doubt it is dear @Ali Anani that is our 'kinetic energy'!

    I live a new paradox that I doubt I have ever lived before. My friends I feel inflated like a bubble with your great appreciation and praise. I am writing about bubbles and yet feel unable to write about my own bubble. Dear @David Navarro López- as I have just responded to one of your comments on my last buzz in which one word of three letters (key) has opened my mind to a new thinking about trees in so many different directions such as in storytelling. Your kindness, genuine friendship and sharp mind alerted me to ideas that were in front of my eyes and yet were blurred. I now believe LOVE is to influence others without intending to. Believe me I failed few times to respond or comment because I couldn't match and still unable to reach your level of appreciation for others.

    #4 Each human being has the capacity to produce constructive and destructive bubbles. I have never seen @Ali Anani showing a negative one, or a bad response, and I swear to God that with some comments of "undesirable commenters" done to Ali's posts I would have reacted badly.
    But he never did. Furthermore, he answered in the most polite way trying to find an "honorable" way out for the "bully". A great lesson.
    To your words "How we can mange to minimize the destructive ones and support the constructive ones are age old dilemmas." I am responding at Ali's post, as the present post is just an extension of the original one.

    I read about the author, Simone de Beauvoir, which brings some extra meaning to the quote. IMO, the quote is about her life and how she wants it to be. It may not be known how she will get there but even if impossible, she will conquer. Here is a link to her philosophy. http://www.philosophytalk.org/community/blog/laura-maguire/2015/04/simone-de-beauvoir

    I love this last paragraph: "If we’re going to talk about “radical freedom” at all, then it should be in the context of the real-life choices we are presented with in our lived experiences. It can’t be an abstract choice to be free. This was one of Beauvoir’s biggest insights. "

    #13 Oh @Deb Helfrich, while it may be nice to see the three little bubbles blinking (like they do on my iphone), I am afraid some may be waiting an awful long time. Sometimes, as I read some of these deeper posts, I feel as though I have only scratched the surface of exploration. Frankly I often feel of inferior intellect, as I read, re-read, read and ponder. . . There have been times where its a day or two before posting a comment and sometimes, I just click the "like" button, as I have no words. . . (and I refuse to simply say "nice post"). Hopefully the comments suffice :-).

    We live in an age of innovation, when creativity is of increasing value. Not only is creativity important for artists and writers, Some say that dreams are one place to find inspiration for creativity.

    And there is philosophy in both poetry and science. I also feel this very visceral identification with a vast view. The frisson of the satisfaction of merely being an observer and yet the pull to feel integrated withe the water or trees or mountains on the horizon.

    I believe this conundrum speaks to the universal force that sparks life, we can recognize it within and without, but it takes being calm contemplating to notice it simultaneously.

    @Ali Anani Ideas are energy created within a network of energy. I agree that we should look at ideas as tangible even though they reside within an energy field. Nature is efficient. The shapes and designs serve to conserve energy in executing life.

    Like nature our ideas should seek to do the same thing. Ideas should include a efficient design. The more energy we have to use to either build or maintain an idea will determine its success.

    Using the ball analogy we can see that the ball is 360 degrees. Energy needs to increase the further I move from my perspective. Say I am at 180 degrees with an idea, I can form influence in a diameter of 20 degrees. Once I move past this the energy required grows exponentially. Like the lioness summing up its prey, it has to choose where energy can best be focused.

    I introduce this because an idea is a random photon unless we add energy. Like photons, ideas abound but as a species we have to choose what and where we will place energy.

    Nature lacks consciousness so efficientcy is its only focus. Our species has consciousness which allows us to (good or bad) discern. This discernment is leveraged on our perceptions and mainly our fears. The energy of an idea can be foreshadowed by our perceptions.

    A stack of 2x4's is merely lumber until a carpenter applies energy to build a house. Ideas are similar to the 2x4's merely lumber until energy is applied.

    This gets into a larger discussion about influence vs control. That is for another day.

    #33 Thanks to @Ali Anani for bringing my attention to your wonderful comment @Mohammed Sultan. Your last sentence, "The light inside us and the vision we created for our companies should be targeted toward the darker spots in customers mind.", is a very powerful concept. For me it forms the triad; myself, my vision, my customer. If I hold a clear vision of what I/my company is all about, I am then able to "see" the need/dark side of my customer/marketplace and fulfill that need in the most successful means possible. This results in my customer/marketplace being illuminated and in this way spreading my vision for all to "see" and be drawn towards it. I wonder, Dr. Ali, if this is a potential subset in the formula to success?

    I am sure @Sara Jacobovici will enjoy mentioning her name in your excellent comment dear @Mohammed Sultan. You know a crazy idea came to my mind and it is timely as it relates to my next post. Spherical bubbles get this shape because it is the shape of least energy requirement by having the least surface area. Now, I think because of your comment and Sara's comment their is a hidden reason- to not see the whole ball and that we must be illuminated from within us, be ready to rotate the ball (bubble), look at different perspectives, imagine and listen to other peoples' vies. It ball shape is the test if we can do that. So, I love what you wrote dear Mohammed "ideas are the lights of our paths and our journey ,so we should stay plugged in,change our batteries to turn on our light in the dark side of the marketplace".

    @The perversity of nature is clearly demonstrated by the fact that ,when exposed to the same atmosphere bread becomes hard ,Exactly the same; ideas become hard and empty if they are not enrolled or balled like 'day and night',and turned to concepts and solutions.Implementing ideas is at least as important as generating them and when ideas are first propounded by outdated beliefs without referring to formal studies ,the pipelines of our thoughts will get dry.We are always faced with the dark side of the ball,faced with many dark areas and blind spots in the marketplace which are considered barriers to our innovation or wrong perceptions when creative ideas are killed in their generation stage .The more outdated beliefs are held in our minds ,the more darker areas you create in your customers mind and the more barriers to your innovation you will encounter.Our ideas are the lights of our paths and our journey ,so we should stay plugged in,change our batteries to turn on our light in the dark side of the marketplace.The light inside us and the vision we created for our companies should be targeted toward the darker spots in customers mind. Thank you dear Ali Anani,PhD.and Sara Jacobovici for mating your creative ideas.

    #50 Great @Dale masters- your comment is timely. I am writing a buzz on bubbles- all types of pubbles. What strikes my attention is new facts about sound. SOund travels in bubbles and not waves! if true, then even our established scientific "facts" become very shaken. I wonder for how long we shall discover more to find that accepted scientific facts are no longer accepted.

    Human logic is (sometimes) not logical.
    A. Man is a plant.
    B. All plants are green.
    C: Therefore, man is green.
    Internally consistent logic, but proceeding from a false premise.
    If something is assumed, but not known, then anything based on that assumption can be wildly inaccurate. This is why I believe that science should take all things as a possibility, rather than proceed from the standpoint that an idea is false until proven true by science.

    #32 @Peter van Doorn - I listened to the complete video "Is Consciousness the Unified Field?" - outstanding!! @Sara Jacobovici and @Ali Anani - have you seen this video? I would love to hear any comments that come from it. A much more scientifically based presentation on the exact thought lines of my comments. It provides excellent summation of what consciousness is in terms of "Universal Intelligence", or the "unmanifested" and goes onto give attention to "Non material realities". It pulls superstring theory into the mix as well. @Dale Masters, you will enjoy as well - and I appreciate your comments about the ego - which some say is the 'false' self, or the unconscious self.

    #39 If I may but in to your discussion @Dale Masters with @Irene Hackett. If I understand you correctly Dale, is it appropriate to state that the universe is conscious of everything about us but we are not yet conscious of everything about the universe?
    Sara Jacobovici
    28/08/2016 #41 Sara Jacobovici
    #36 Definitely @Irene Hackett! Awareness, or a conscious state of awareness is that space. You notice I say conscious state because that is what Frankl may be saying: it's not enough to know, we need to be aware; it's not enough to be aware, we need to bring that awareness to consciousness. I have also worked and trained others in the non-verbal therapies that once we use the creative arts to evoke the non-verbal, it is our responsibility as therapists to know what to do with that which we have helped to evoke and allow the individual to find the words to understand and make sense of it on a verbal level.

    Yes that space can be known, and we're working on that all the time, (consciously and unconsciously) but as long as it is a work in progress, we can only name what we know at the time. Nothing wrong with that.

    @Dale Masters- I wonder sometimes if I would be eligible to use the term "imagination capacity" and it has to be huge to "The Universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it's stranger than we CAN imagine."@Sara Jacobovici added beautifully with amazing reasoning why both knowledge and imagination are senses. If our understanding of quantum physics is limited to five people on earth then it reflects on our inabilities to imagine what doesn't exist now. Does complexity limit our imagination when we tend to think logically and with limited understanding of many topics?
    Dale Masters
    28/08/2016 #39 Dale Masters
    @Irene Hackett All matter in the Universe responds to human measurement. This seems to indicate that matter has (at the very least) a rudimentary form of consciousness.
    The idea of a conscious Universe has far-reaching implication for humans---it indicates that the human ego is WAY too large.
    Oh...and recent research indicates there was no Big Bang, which makes sense, because the concept was introduced in the 1800s as a way to reconcile science and religion. It's not necessary, because Genesis seems to indicate a REcreation of the Earth. The command "Be fruitful, and multiply, and REplenish the Earth is a statement which indicates that humans had previously inhabited the Earth...otherwise, the word would be "plenish", or "to make plenty" or "make a large amount of" (OE---ME)

    2 of 2 - @Sara Jacobovici - Getting back to our beloved Victor Frankl, he brings up very interesting ideas about the "indoctrination" of "reductionism" occurring in the American Education system and how it may be responsible for the American student's experience of the "existential vacuum", having been repeatedly exposed to the idea that "..man is defined as nothing but 'an adaptive control system' " and that "life is nothing but a combustion process, and an oxidation process". He goes on to suggest that we "..must have knowledge plus the awareness of its limitations." Could it be that this 'awareness' is the place, the space - the consciousness from which imagination emerges. And can it be named or known?

    1 of 2. First let me say that I absolutely treasure connecting with you here @Sara Jacobovici - really, it is my honorable pleasure to interact with a woman of your intelligence and character! I have been a lover of both the Old and the New Testament for many years so it is a joy that you reference it in your reply. I think you may be right when you say the senses that were in play before the Big Bang came from God, non-physical, non form. If I may use the New Testament, John 1:1 says: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." It suggests that the Word was God. I like how you illustrate the non-physical 'word' creating physical sense - 'sound' - and then physical form. You go onto share an intriguing thought, "I believe that the "dark chaos" over which the spirit of God hovers described at the beginning is a possible original space from which imagination emerged." Yes! This "space", not unlike Frankl's "space between two nerve cells" is necessary and may be the place from which 'all that is' emerges. This is fascinating to me.

    @David B. Grinberg shared an article about whether other life forms exist out there in our universe. Andrew Fain writes in this article, http://www.universetoday.com/130227/why-havent-we-found-any-aliens-yet/, "In 50,000 years, humans will probably look a little different than people do now." One of the reasons for that is we and our planet don't look the same now as we did 50,000 ago. Here is one small example of how nature is in constant flux. ""We have this corridor pushing in all the alien species, who just push them out and replace them with a fauna, which is not the native one," says Galil, a marine biologist with Israel's National Institute of Oceanography." Aliens are not just extraterrestrial.

    #1 Great questions @Ali Anani. A sidebar to this is adaptation. If it's not the jellyfish's "brain" that enables it to leave it's original environment and survive the journey and and its new environment, adaptation must be at work here. What we are witnessing is adaptation without technology. Humans do have the brain to enhance our ability to survive. Are we paying too much attention to adaptation through devices and in this way sacrifice our innate abilities to adapt? How can we make the devices work for us in a more "adaptive" way without any sacrifice?

    One thing that MUST be understood is that finding something after the crowd, brings it a new audience and a further life. We don't tend to see all the bees on just one flower in a field.

    The Diversity of Thinking buzz leads me to follow up on three more video's about the plant world. We can refer to this as plant intelligence, where intelligence does not become anthropomorphic i.e. I do not treat plants as human beings but as a distinct ecology I have yet to fully appreciate. @Ali Anani 's buzz https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/disruption-of-thinking#c23 From this single buzz alone I have already found two distinct pathways for my own learning journey, plants via Ali Anani and Creativity via @Sara Jacobovici - in all that is 7 video's that emerge from this buzz - 1 about vibrations that is 1 hour long contained in Ali Anani's buzz and the 6 that I have personally earmarked for my own attention. Looks like i will not be watching movies with the family for a couple of days and that is the value of a learning journey, distinct from the normal course of our entertainment schedules.

    #11 Dear Dilma, the Brazilian contigent on BeBee is an impressive force, I can see from your buzz that some are already interacting with your buzz's. In my lexicon a "monkey" is a follower, whereas the plant or tree has a different kind of diversity and this is not a following like a bee but an observation. To observe means noticing, to follow is monkey see, monkey do a.k.a. reactive and/or conforming. I encourage @Augusto Santos to check your profile and buzz out - as Jiddu Krishnamurti said, "the observer is the observed".

    #8 Hi Dilma I did check out your LinkedIn and even though I do not speak a lick of Portuguese or Spanish, I saw you had two postings there. The first about ZBB I have followed up on here https://www.bebee.com/content/695856/692658 as a part of my "Red Wisdom" and the second I have noted as a book you were interested in "Obvious Adams" by Robert Updegraff, which I also did not know about and discover is a classic in business circles, so much so it is now readily available for anyone to read at the Open Library https://openlibrary.org/books/OL7130468M/Obvious_Adams - I have noted it also for my own personal learning under my "Blue Wisdom" here https://www.bebee.com/content/695866/692670 What this means in the context of plants is that I would rather be a plant that finds its roots or a tree that finds its branches, than a monkey jumping from tree to tree or a bee moving from flower to flower - and the implications of that are immense. It means I have found an alternative to following - which is fractal learning. In such learning we find and make our own branches, while others establish and find their own. There is a limit to fractal learning which is that one must turn things off in order to focus on what has been found, otherwise it is merely following i.e. that social media world of monkey see, monkey do.

    #18 Dear @Renée Cormier. "The question is not to be interpreted literally. Sensory words are used all the time in every day speech." Agreed. And this is what I am saying also, because we are sensory beings and because we use the expressions metaphorically and all the time, proves that we relate to those experiences and take comfort that others understand our references. Whereas in social media, there are less sensory experiences and that will influence our and understanding or communication. By the way, when we ask a blind person if they can see our point of view, it is legitimate because he sees from his perspective. His not being able to get sensory information through his eyes does not prevent him from experiencing a plethora of sensory input, still not accessible when we engage in communicating through social media.

    My intention Renee was never to negate your expression, merely to use this as an example of an overlap between two mediums of communication. Thank you for the opportunity to engage in this dynamic discussion.

    I just saw this post, @Sara Jacobovici. The concept if sniffing things out is really not that complicated. Investigate or asess the probability of a prospect becoming a client or customer. We may ask a blind person if they can see our point of view. All we are looking for is validation. The question is not to be intetpreted literally. Sensory words are used all the time in every day speech.

    You wrote "Imaging is defined as "the ability to recreate sensory impressions and feelings in our minds in the absence of extrinsic or direct physical stimulation from our eyes, ears, nose, tongue, hands or body."" Did you mean 'imaging,' or 'imagining'? Or do you 'see' these both as the same?

    #11 Your comment is a very valuable one @Dale Masters. A message that needs to be heard. From my perspective, because there isn't the "full spectrum" of sensory engagement, the risk of miscommunication and not "hearing" or "seeing" what's being communicated is multiplied a thousand fold on social media and away from face to face engagement. And the isolation can be devastating, as you point out. Reading the signs of individuals who are at risk of harming themselves is challenging enough. Understanding the consequences of our behaviors, verbally and non-verbally, is challenging enough. When we then reduce the potential to see and hear the signs and results, the risk rises. I always encourage any individual who has experienced a "cutting off" experience to not withdraw but find another route of engagement. Thanks again Dale for your comment.

    #9 This is why Facebook needs to legally be seen in the context of a physical commons. Cutting people off from Facebook engagement can have the effect of cutting people off from vital sources of encouragement, possibly resulting in suicides.

    #8 I agree Sara, it is building along the lines of a collective consciousness. That sense is communicating across space. What comes to mind is a fictional series written by James Redfield. The most famous of his books (thanks in part to Bill Clinton) is The Celestine Prophecy, but this was only one in a series. The book The Secret of Shambhala in which he talks about an entire community that communicates in this way it is actually featured in all the books. I found it to be a fascinating concept.

    #7 Your comment @Pamela L. Williams is "fascinating", thoughtful and insightful. What I think is happening when we "hear" is that we're imagining, which is defined as "the ability to recreate sensory impressions and feelings in our minds in the absence of external stimuli." What is happening to a new generation which isn't hearing in the same way? You say that we are developing another sense, what is it? It can't be what you refer to as instinct or 6th sense, those already have their subjective history with us. I agree that something else is happening. I just don't know or rather can't "imagine" what it is.

    Sara, what came to mind is the thought that when you lose one sense the others become stronger because IMHO the energy (be it physical, mental, or of the human spirit) that would be utilized to exercise that lost sense it diverted to the other senses. We know we cannot smell, touch, or taste in social media so that is three sense lost. We are dependent on sight and hearing and by hearing I mean our thoughts and interpretations of what we are reading. IMHO I think we develop another sense of 'feeling'. People say you can't really interpret emotions, sarcasm, anger, etc. accurately in the written word. You are dependent upon your own experiences in applying emotions. I don't fully agree with this train of thought. We are communicating more and more on social media and as we build relationships, we automatically, without thought, pick up on sensory trends. The post that wrote not too long ago touched on this; "I will yell tripe whenever tripe is served". My senses picked up on a trend. I wasn't deliberately watching for the trend, but there came a point where I said to myself; "something isn't quite right", so I backtracked and reread some things and realized my senses had picked up on something that I had not cognitively recognized. Call it instinct, a 6th sense, or whatever you want, we users of social media are developing another sense, and that is fascinating.

    our observation on external world and its reflection enabled us to develop sense as well languages or signals. the evolution of changes signal or languages evolved in the passage of time owing to the reflections we receive. present modern technology and the media revolutionize the senses as well metaphors, where we can connect across the world as well understand the impending detriment too. nice post @Sara Jacobovici to ponder about this issue which is extremely relevant.

    I think I have a story that would resonate with you @Sara Jacobovici. We suffered in every meeting from the nasty smell of the same person. People shied off to tell him and they hated those meetings because of him. They asked me to find a solution. I bought a piece of soap, put it in an envelope with his name (typewritten) on it. I placed the envelope in his pigeon hole. The message worked and we never suffered again. What reminded me of this story is your writing"... is that it comes from a sensory environment and is being carried over into a limited sensory environment".

    @ A rose by the name Sara Jacobovici would smell as sweet .Smell is often associated with brand names particularly in perfume and people are like perfumes.Not only do we see what we want to see,but also smell what we want to smell.Just as in buying foods,everyone has his or her own taste and smell. What's important is the after taste/smell feeling. A rose on social media would certainly smell sweet, if the readers sensed its value or that its after smell feeling would change their perception.The impression in a reader's mind will determine how sweet and compelling your message is.So,let our love for brands and people no more be bought and sold for earthly loss or gain ,this will be the most gratifying thing on earth.

    #1 Thank you for your reply @Anees Zaidi. Sure decisions are made for children. That's not the challenging part. I would suggest that it's not the boundaries so much as the isolation. If children are brought up with a clear sense of who they are and where they are while exposed to what is happening in the world around them, particularly through education, the potential is still there for them to engage with their given senses.

    Wow @Sara Jacobovici you have made my day. Finally I could see the usability of thought provoking comments and debates on this platform. You have taken a wonderful start. You say "We come into this world with all the sounds necessary to speak any and all languages. When we learn a language and engage solely in that one, we lose the sounds which do not belong to that language." This I see as one of the choices made by someone else for us (for a child by h/h parents). What language h/h would speak, what religion/sect h/h would follow, what name h/h would get. This happens within five minutes of child's birth. There are few who later in their life using their given senses cross over this barrier, others continue to live within the same boundaries.

    Dear @Sara Jacobovici I am built more of a British reserve which is a product of where I was born which was Britain. Yet I can hug you humongously because whether it was 1998 or 2008 or even 2 years from now in 2018, have I ever had a bugbear in my system than what you have questioned. In the year 2000 I created "Mark Zorro" for this reason at the Fast Company discussion boards. I do want you to read my bio for Mark Zorro at Fast Company and then I look forward most heartily to your response. http://www.fastcompany.com/786242/fc-bio

    #5 Great comment with lots of layers of thought provoking ideas @Deb Helfrich. My take away on this first read is, "When the WHY is salient enough, we can apply our talents for plasticity and effect all sorts of changes."
    Deb Helfrich
    02/08/2016 #5 Deb Helfrich
    I've always been a tad bit uncomfortable with this concept. I support a few people who argue this angle quite well. But inherently the concept of branding is to become recognizable in a fixed way within some sort of niche. But any given human can decide in the next hour to change their entire life for love, money, fame, family. When the WHY is salient enough, we can apply our talents for plasticity and effect all sorts of changes. And then on the negative side, if someone invests a great deal in their brand and it doesn't succeed, does it become a trauma to re-brand? I just don't feel that any human being should be reduced to slogans and point in time focus. Humans are much more complex than corporations and I think it is quite reductionary to think we should follow their lead in this regard. A similar backlash is arising with all the metaphors floating around about how the brain is computer-like. Umm, no, we cannot understand the complexity of our thinking equipment solely through the lens of data processing and storage.

    #1 On the contrary @Ali Anani your perspective is a valuable contribution to the idea being discussed. That we grow and change is a crucial point. On a lighter note, I used to laugh in the old days when brands were marked as "new and improved". Felt misled on the "old and not do good".

    I wonder if we are the same brand today as that of yesterday. We learn and change, evolve and become a new brand. I know a product from its brand, but I am not sure I shall be the same person tomorrow. I hope I am not missing the point @Sara Jacobovici

    @Franci Eugenia Hoffman wrote a comment about change. It included these 4 characterisitcs: 1. change to change 2. adapt to change 3. managing change 4. change and intention. I would like to ask the following question; is change an innate function? We often refer to change as a process but given Franci's insightful characteristics of change it makes me wonder if change is not a process but a biological function? Would that make sense if we then look at how we talk about fear of change, agents of change, climate for change, time for change, and so on?

    Relief and Belief On my last buzz on "The Curly Hair of Change" two lovely comments attracted my attention and thought of being interesting enough to share with the bees here. because we now live in the visual age - we are beginning to see and question our beliefs". Great dear @CityVP ManjitI wonder how would you relate this to what @Melissa Hefferman write in her comment below "from a state of question / answering to a state of just being". Visuals increased our questioning of our beliefs and yet accepting change is a source of relief. Between "relief and belief" there is a gelly state? I would love to hear from both of you my friends.

    Shawn Quinlivan, C.Ht. made a comment about the relationship between, or looking at how light and shadow need each other and @Max Carter's comment, "The darkness of ourselves is where we go to figure out the light." First, I would like to add that the inverse to that can also be true: The light of us is where we go to figure out the darkness. These 2 comments have inspired me to ask the following questions; can shadow be considered as part of dark or light, can one totally absorb the other, and if so, how does that manifest, how do we navigate the places of dark and light in order to understand their relationship and their mutual needs?

    "The zen of shadows is realizing how the darkness and light need each other." Just as fear (darkness) can be suffused in love (light), so the opposite is also true. We need both the darkness and the light to survive. Shadows represent the necessary balancing points, the constant transfiguration of our spiritual being, the joining of the visible with the invisible, time with eternity, the mortal with the divine . . .

    I was thinking about this morning @Sara Jacobovici. I asked myself if I am driving in daylight and then enter a dark tunnel what do I ask for? Sometimes we drive ourselves in the daylight of hope and then we find ourselves experiencing dark glooms. We find the value of light much more when we experience dark days. Memories and experiences shall leave their shadow on us and influence our experiences and actions.
