    Beautifully composed dear @Jeet Sarkar. You an issue that is of great relevance. In Arabic a word is written in Arabic alphabit may read nashtum or nashtam. Nashutum means to curse. Nashtum means to smell. It is only when we add a word like flowers that we read it to smell. Amazingly, even some people still read it as curse the flowers. I enjoyed and shared your lovely buzz.

    #4 Pardon me for i had to read this post again and again and imagine it in the context of the box, inflexibility of the perspective i guess, looking only at the floor, when infact i must look at each wall and the assumption roof which must progress from a hypothesis to something functional.

    Perspective is all encompassing whole around the box and so is every other wall/top and the word it represents. The segregation was made to equate perspective with the static elements and the walls with the variable growing elements of perspective which may change to yield a bigger space or an exit.

    The box is akin to the mental conditioning where numbers on the paper are treated as absolute in a dynamic world which requires dynamic decisions.

    Somehow the satire on barriers holds within it the solution and i missed out on the assumption that needs attention and looked at the perspective floor , my box of comfort in this case as long as i look at the floor and nothing else.

    Furthermore, the inflexibility has resulted from repetitions of these mistakes as informed decisions, therefore it identifies the problem but can very much be a problem in itself if it remains rigid.

    i am not sure if i got the message through, but this needs to be pondered upon. Thanks a lot again.

    As always, been quite behind on your responses.

    #2 For me, it's all us. I believe the same too. The reason for stating it as a myth. Its a form of a satire on how we get involved in semantics :)
    Sara Jacobovici
    14/02/2017 #2 Sara Jacobovici
    #1 Thank you for thoughtful response Devesh Bhatt. I think where we differ is in the semantics of the word myth. For me, it's all us. Our perception, our experience, our action, our decision. It's how we "package" it all that makes the difference.
    Devesh Bhatt
    14/02/2017 #1 Devesh Bhatt
    "We are optically neurologically, wired to "see" things from different perspectives. "


    "you see what you need to see in front of you, such as your floor=perspective, while at other times you may need to focus on the wall=knowledge side. "


    But then this question emerges. What about the action that enriches perspective and yields progress?

    The basis of the question again is my perspective.

    My box is mythical in the sense that i have admitted a certain context and given no explanation for an important element in the progression, the action. Your articles generally have the utility or the action portion well explained for replication.

    Howsoever do i flip the box i stand on my perspective, the starting point from which i look at everything else. The perspective is based on purpose , Knowledge , experience and/or ability but for the perspective to grow, any one of them has to trigger additional inputs.

    Here another question emerges. Can a box serve as a better model for operational decisions or it is best to make it linear?

    @Sara Jacobovici, Fantastic idea! I have always been fond of creating little vignettes of books around my living space since I was very young and got upgraded to an adult library card - more than 5 books at a time - way before my age afforded me that luxury.

    I feel, just like the way we today find themes in very disparate buzzes and how the randomness reveals hidden commonalities, that many books I have read became fuller due to the juxtaposition of the other books I was reading concurrently.

    #1 @Gert Scholtz, if you'd given us a multiple choice question of what Oliver Sacks didn't do in his life, I would have selected weightlifting champion. Fantastic little fact that I find very interesting to contemplate.

    I'd nominate "The MInd's Eye" as my favorite Sacks book. I am a little fascinated with how much vision is wired throughout our brains and how as a species, it is our default primary sense.

    Fantastically put together thoughts, @Sara Jacobovici. I think there are definitely trace of the adolescent boundary-pushing in many of the structures we have built in the corporate world. I feel like we need to make a simple, easy to grasp change - although I certainly acknowledge the will & the detailed steps to change in this way may be very hard.

    Right now, we have legally built corporations to put fiduciary responsibility to the holders of little pieces of now digitized paper before any concerns of employees, customers, communities, or the planet at large. Then companies wanted a way to judge how effectively they played this game by implementing quarterly earnings results. Now we have a situation where companies are incentivized to make very short term decisions and absolutely ignore longer-term consequences or impacts on any dimension besides ever increasing revenue.

    If corporations were mandated that continued operation required them to accept the new terms and conditions that humanity was rolling out or cease business and we simply added a first clause of do no harm. We would enable employees to have a leg to stand on in also looking for the broader and wider consequences to making everything so cheap that we throw most things away and buy new. The stockholders are the only winners in this scenario.

    Employees are people too. If their job allowed them to be a global citizen, we wouldn't need immense regulatory bodies, the right level of due diligence would arise quite naturally for companies who wanted to adjust to the new terms and conditions that humanity began enforcing with its purchasing power.

    I believe i would replace the thoughts surrounding survival and self preservation with self-perpetuation (Individual and generational). The challenge lies in the self wanting to be successful. Survival and self preservation belong to a class of descriptors that evoke food, clothing, shelter and fight/flight concerns. Our issues tend to surround first world problems of excess.

    Path A allows me to get there faster where path B allows me to get there in a sustainable way.

    Path B would appear to be the obvious choice as it would allow for you/others and most importantly the infrastructure to sustain itself. The incongruence comes when we watch media, and others who choose A. We compare progress and we see that we are really taking the long road in comparison.

    We can see our own efforts as success and live out our lives, we can become apathetic and join the group of A's or we can get angry and fight the A's. All valid choices and each has its own consequences in our mind.

    Clearly the path of success has become self defeating within the long view. Future generations will be left with something to clean up if we can't find the sustainable success story.

    #3 You've made an interesting distinction between self-preservation and survival @Pascal Derrien. We survive and we attempt to preserve that state. The quality of that state is what makes us an interesting species. You also make an interesting modification to repeated patterns; you say that each time we repeat, we push the boundaries a bit further, in this way there is an extension or expansion of the pattern or process. Again, aren't we an interesting bunch? Not only do we not continue with the repair with the potential to heal, we test the limits of the repair until, as you say, we've crossed the line and then there's no turning back. I think it's a reflection of some of us wanting to "beat" the odds and survive in spite of our self-destructive versus self-preserving nature.
    Pascal Derrien
    06/02/2017 #3 Pascal Derrien
    Hard wiring to self preservation or is it survival ? We seem to repeat patterns by just pushing the boundaries a bit further each time after repair ignoring that one day we will push it beyond being fixable

    Dear @Sara Jacobovici- you have shown a great depth in writing this buzz. You mentioned towards the end an idea that is worthy of deep thinking. I refer to your writing "...and we have the capacity to make choices; in which is “embedded” responsibility". I mentioned in my quoted buzz embedded choices, but you have extended the idea masterfully by including embedded responsibility. Embedded choices require embedded responsibility that make humans act in a way that you answered. I mean humans' ability to create, destroy or repair. Because humans tend to forget about the long-term consequences they are mostly left with the option of repairing what they have destroyed.
    One way our to create long-term creative and building solutions is offered in your buzz. "Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies—new ways of living—that are well-adapted to life on earth over the long haul".
    As much as I congratulate you on writing this great buzz, I feel equally honored that my buzz urged you to write this buzz. I am overwhelmed by your depth dear Sara.

    Words and meaning of words IN ACTION. An exchange of the use of a word leading to learning a new meaning and expanding on that meaning with finding the words of others

    @🐝 Fatima Williams writes on her share: "A fantabulous panegyric by CityVP Manjit on Sarah and her words/work."

    @CityVP 🐝 Manjit replies: "Thank you Fatima for introducing me to the word "panegyric". This article about John Dryden http://publishing.cdlib.org/ucpressebooks/view?docId=ft4g5006bf&chunk.id=d0e368 has taught me more about this word. Where it states "encomium" meaning praise, but why panegyric means more than that. I then discovered that this is great speech in a public address, which led me to learn about the Agora of Athens - the first place where democracy began to flourish in Ancient Greece. I congratulate you Fatima for a well chosen word and in that word "panegyric", you have encapsulated an appreciation and admiration of Sara, a very well chosen word indeed."

    This example "speaks for itself".

    What an incredible honor, @Sara Jacobovici. You will not be surprised to find out this buzz arrives at a truly synchronisitic moment! Wendy Weiner Runge was simultaneously suggesting to me on the phone that I needed to ask people what value they find in my comments, so that I can narrow down what the world needs me to do, and focus on creating the business that will support me sharing my value with others.

    The admiration is truly mutual. I am always joyful when I start to read one of your articles, as I am certain you will enhance my energy via your carefully crafted words and stunningly accurate ideas.

    You are someone with a profound knowing and you share it so generously and with so much willingness to engage with whatever arises.

    Separation and integration are our way of being. This buzz has some very interesting and intriguing comments on
    Deb's sparking comment.
    We are creating our world inside our being and our world is being created outside our being at the same time. More like the conflict on what to do between the heart and the mind. In both cases it is in the power of creation of thought/ our thinking like Deb Helfrich says.
    @Deb🐝 Lange has opened a passage of thoughts that exist between worlds and what happens if we are in either one side or on both at the same time. I'm blaffed with how lost we get when our senses fail to detect this cross over and synchronisation of paths between the two worlds.

    It feels to me like time is internal and space is external and that mostly our thinking equipment manages to integrate these two dimensions, but we do, on occasion, end up out of sync - much in the way of visual illusions where we shift our focus just ever so slightly and see a different picture.

    I experience time as pressure. Mostly comforting pressure like how my dog shows affection by touch. But when I start to experience time as sharp, painful pressure, I realize I have focused on this perspective to the exclusion of all my other senses. Curiously, even though I know I often cause myself undue emotions based on how I focus on the pressure of time, it is how I experience the world until someone else points out they live within time without pressure.

    Very thought-provoking discussion @Sara Jacobovici & @Deb🐝 Lange

    When it comes to motivation,the good things that come together is your inside-out purpose, potentials and fear of regressing to failure,and outside-in gain,rewarding,recognition and pride.Cross-pollination of any of these factors of motivation will have different impact on one's satisfaction and content. There's also bad things coming together ,inside- out come negative emotions and inertia and from outside- in rigid rues and deteriorating economies,all of which are anti-motivational and may be also depressing.

    #11 "It is not this or that; it is both acting and reinforcing each other in simultaneity that produce the biggest effect of motivation." @Ali Anani, you have taken the concept of "things coming together" and, from my perspective, you have managed to penetrate the 4th timespace dimension.

    In terms of time, I am always amazed as to how much you get done in the same amount of time as "us mortals" but I am hopeful you will at some point manage to find the time to expand on this exceptional idea.

    It amazing how cross-pollination of ideas lead to writing such a lovely buzz dear @Sara Jacobovici. Thanks are also due to dear @Deb🐝 Lange for provoking you to write this buzz.
    What a lovely idea: the synchronization of time and ~BOTH spaces-internal world and external world- can only lead to `Our internal world by itself, and our external world by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality". I would again highlight that the two worlds are spaces and the two have to be in synchronicity for our world to be meaningful
    What still intrigues me more is the extension of this idea. For example, external and internal motivators shall give real meaning to motivation if they are in synchronicity. It is not this or that; it is both acting and reinforcing each other in simultaneity that produce the biggest effect of motivation. I don't think this idea has been discussed before. I wonder what you think?

    When we create consistent internal and external inside-out and outside- in within ourselves,our internal actions and their external impact will be consisten,and our actions can easily be justified.Each of us has his own "window horizon" and stand by it to see the outer world ,whenever we change our position at the window we can see different things or see them differently.Everybody,also, has his own "time window" ,and because we are 'time binding being' our time widow determines to a great extent our capacity to see the future.Some can stretch their thinking beyond the norm and think strategically, and others have time windows that put limits on what they can do and think tactically,although the stimuli could be the same.Thanks @Sara Jacobovici and to @Deb Lange for extending your original post.

    I like the idea of "cross pollinator " it's to my thinking a new slant on "thinking outside the box" and the less well known "ignorant observer". The latter someone not directly linked to the problem, who provides an answer new to the situation.

    Great comment by @CityVP 🐝 Manjit to a great story by @Lisa Vanderburg: "This is good and I would think even more exhilarating performed as a monologue direct to the grandmother 'Granny Grim'. Beyond the woven language, this really brought home the beauty of memorable characters. In the homogenized existence of the cultural fabric of modern media, we look for personality drawn in medium that do exist in our own environs. What we have not learned to do is capture the richness of detail of the most unique personalities either known to us, or we have known - or even that exist in our imaginative flow of storytelling.

    The staged play is already made in the oven of art, and we can pay the admission price to that which is shared to all - but there is great dimension in the stories that are most personal to us - and great credit to those who have noticed life playing out like this in their own life. It means we noticed the living, we utilized that which nature equipped our own faculties, and in that exists the kind of originality that we may not find with a public admission ticket. I know that @Sara Jacobovici is a Trekkie, so she will enjoy this well beyond the Spock tribute. I enjoyed the DNA in this story - well beyond anything replicate and exponentially personal from the mind of a skilled storyteller."

    I love the hive name "Only Humans Tell Stories". This is where I distinguish stories from dance. So many life forms dance and as animals evolve they become more tribal, but at the part where the tribal can relate stories, from this point there is this uniqueness we refer to as humanity. This is the point where evolution takes us into the human.

    Animals also make machines and the Spiders Web is an incredible piece of machinery. Our tribal nature may identity with machines but again how we evolve as a human being is recognizing what in the creation of advanced machines allows us to be more human.

    The capacity of our humanity is a pure unadulterated appreciation of life and the gifts of nature, and our evolution into becoming human beings. We can appreciate our animal being, we can appreciate the being of machine but it is the whole which we are a part of which defines our humanity and not the destruction of that wholeness.

    Storytelling is not necessarily a human act, for our tribal behaviour can use stories for nefarious intent - but at the level of being a human being, this gift of storytelling is ours to advance humanity or waste and in this regard nature has the final say whether humanity evolves or is just another piece of evolution, in a planet that has a beginning and an end.

    Maybe the end point of our intelligence is to send out life-giving properties into the universe, that become the ingredients to new planets, but time is so huge in scale, we can focus on the story of humanity as it is now, without any worry or tribal stories about the end of time. If humans only tell stories then this is a living pathway to our collective humanity.

    The answers to ‘whys’ are more difficult to discern in the personal. There are protocols, visions, or regulations that may guide business, but in the personal the 'shadows' are more apparent as we encounter personalities, emotions, loyalties. These exist in business but the shadows are darker and harder to traverse in the personal.
    We want to believe that there are certainties guiding humanity but then something happens and everything we believed to be truth shifts into the shadows and the ‘Whys’ begin. It’s difficult to accept events/actions that are counter-intuitive to what we believe as Right. IMHO this is when the human mind/emotion connection 'short circuits' and we become embroiled in an internal battle as we seek answers that make our world safe again.
    As @Ali Anani points out;
    "I am in agreement with you on the importance of the why questions and on the need to ask them within the right time and the right way; if not why question could be "dangerous".
    When we are unable to resolve our shadow whys and they continue to spin in our minds; the 'dangerous' element enters. The ‘Whys’ become obsessions, casting shadows on internal emotions and external relationships. Communication breaks down, resentment develops, and anger becomes the dominant response to the world. Consider my friends that the first question explored after a horrific human event is ‘Why’. Humanity at-large cannot feel safe and move on until our psyches are provided with an acceptable answer; “They were suffering from depression, they were delusional, or they were misled by religious leaders... “. We want our answers. Whether or not those answers are founded in truth is irrelevant, our minds/emotions need only for them to be acceptable.

    #10 Thanks again @Deb🐝 Lange. There is clear proof of our bodies emitting energy and that these energies can have properties of colours. Not only do some people naturally see these energies but there are also those who have synesthesia, being able to experience more than one sense at a time. Plus the work that has been done using words with water crystals/molecules, no doubt words have all those potential qualities. We know words are powerful. As well, you know the expression "seeing red". All connected.

    #9 Thank you @Deb🐝 Lange. I don't doubt how complex animals are in their interaction with other animals and humans. Yes, a horse can be asking what's going on, that doesn't make sense to me, this is unexpected, and so on. But why, is an abstract, self-reflective, existential type of question that is not in the animal's repertoire. They know about life and death, about life cycles and loyalty and bonding and so on. Why transcends these boundaries.

    Sarah, it is a nice thought to believe that asking why is an attribute of humanity alone, but I a not sure it is sustainable in a careful and close examination of animal life.

    That said, reading this particular thread moves me to remark further that In Sociopsychopseudophilosinvesticonglomeration, we find that the primary answer to "Why?" is "Because!", the color of which answer is black -- itself either a total absence of light or a mixture of all pigments.

    Much to ponder on a Sunday morning over coffee and lox on an onion bagel. Cheers!

    #8 You expressed my opinion very well @Harvey Lloyd by your writing " Why did i do that, or feel this way or many other why questions would establish a journey of right and wrong". I didn't say why questions are always wrong. However; when they take us to the past failures and don't help in forward looking the why questions become accusatory and we try to find a victim to blame. The why questions have a bright side as well as a gloomy one.
    Deb🐝 Lange
    18/12/2016 #10 Deb🐝 Lange
    Also I love the idea that different questions have different colours, maybe they even have different shapes, textures, qualities. When why is asked of another person in a way that is like an interrogation. I see red and black shadows looming over the other person who becomes intimidated or angry.
    Then again if why is asked with curiosity I imagine seeing, light green and light blue anc maybe even light yellow - as the why seems light anx free and playful.

    Why is a two edged sword. Simon Sinek here explains "why" in the exploratory, where i believe @Ali Anani was reviewing "why" in the accusatory. Using Simon Sinek's "Why is Apple successful" comment we can see that why is being asked internally in leadership to find new ways to be successful. To flip this why into the accusatory zone, Why are we not successful like Apple.

    The implication within the question is we did something wrong, lets identify that. Simon Sinek presents the question of we need to grow, something we can all get behind and evolve. I would further state that good leaders realize that "Why" exists in these two formats and always convert the why to the growth model.

    I would think that why within our own personal thoughts would also work in a similar manner. Why did i do that, or feel this way or many other why questions would establish a journey of right and wrong. Where a "what" lead to this position might guide us to understanding our behavioral outcomes. This well outside of my area of expertise. I have always found that asking internal questions that imply motion keep us from forming positions and encourages planning. What was our original position, How have current events changed that position and where do we need to go from here, has served me well in understanding the challenges of personal and business.

    Robert F. Kennedy — 'There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?' I have always loved this quote from Robert Kennedy because it remains timeless and is the best example I can think of the shadow why where it is more than just the right time or the right way, for the unknown is not known in this "why not?".

    Why is always my favorite question to ask and answer.

    The tool I call Psychospirilosophy is all about why and using why to better under yourself through self reflection and answering to yourself for those things that have you asking yourself "why did I do/say that?"

    Aristotle said the to know thyself is the beginning of all wisdom. I say to that to understand thyself in the moment is to understand the rest.

    I also say if knowledge is power than wisdom is understanding.

    Without asking why and answering with pure honestly one will never achieve understanding or find wisdom which is often finding truth.

    It's why I say let words pass through 3 doors of why.

    Why one?

    Why here?

    Why now?

    This is synchronicity and how one discovers it in one's life.

    A powerful question that puts the power in our hands to answer it or not to answer it.

    The choice is always ours.

    I am very glad you explained in more detail the shadow of questions @Sara Jacobovici. Yes, I agree with you. You know an idea just crossed my mind if questions have different colors. The same why question, for example, may reflect the light or absorb it all. So, even questions may have different colors.
    Thank you for the idea of expanding my buzz into a post. Soon, I believe I might be just righting buzzes to reflect on your comments (WOW! as I used the word reflect and thus your comments are reflective of light). They are.

    #1 Your "comment" @Ali Anani is rich enough to become a buzz unto itself. I definitely agree that all question words have their shadows. I think that one of the reasons is because questions are not linear and so have enough substance to block a source of light and produce their shadow. In a sense, questions have the duality of being a light source on their own accord and be reflective at the same time as receiving light and not allowing that light to pass through them and so produce their shadows.

    yes, new media or social media has the potential to create a concrete platform and even change the dynamics of the political as well social flow, which recently we observe in U.S. election, their capacity and strength. on contrary, a value based platform with integrity sure make a significant proposition in due time, though initially insignificant in nascent stage, but having the potential too to make a sea change with obviously a concrete approach. lovely insightful post @Harvey Lloyd! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    #36 By all means please carry the thoughts along as you examine your thoughts.

    I am always curious of the disconnect of our own thoughts. The three states don't work if your thoughts are not surrounding dynamic usable outcomes. But i read posts/concepts that focus on static concepts while we live in a dynamic world.

    Our thoughts should help us transcend the static into dynamic action. We can discuss concepts until we fully understand, but if it doesn't lead to change in action then it is static.

    If the above statement is true then our thoughts should always be considered within the end game.

    Understanding today will emerge as action tomorrow.

    This changes our thoughts from "positions" where defense and offense happen, to action thoughts where we realize our thoughts will be attached to a future action. Dynamic thoughts.

    Each step of cloud formation and ultimately rain, is actionable with a result. I see in many posts where we forward a emotional position. These posts remind us of dynamic journeys that have become static positions we cant understand/tolerate or need dynamic thoughts to move forward. Continuing to forward an emotional thought though, does not change the static position.

    #34 I have often felt that we are in a state of three conditions when we are seeking understanding or work through issues. I am right until i am wrong, I am wrong until i am right, I am not moving forward. These conditions display state of mind and not judgement. Specifically as it applies to making choices/decisions.

    I can move from state to state based on new information. But realizing these conditions exist allows me to operate without blindness or stagnation. The third state is the challenge as time works against us in a world that moves very quickly. Sometimes we need to work forward even though we may feel wrong, just to start the journey towards right.

    Our comfort zone is always an eroding oasis. A brain relaxing zone if you will. These are the times when we see most clear and relax. Cherish them as the next leg of the journey will come soon enough @Ali Anani

    Asking is a sign of maturity. It shows our lack of knowledge and areas where we wish to learn more. I agree with you @Harvey Lloyd and how many times we found that what we believed was a correct answer later proved to be wrong. It is asking questions that keeps us in tension state to desire to know more; answers tend to place us in our comfort zone. We call it comfort zone and in reality it could the ignorance zone and even sometimes the stupidity zone.

    #29 One of the things i have recognized in social media (I am a newbee), is we discuss relationships and networks but we see individual comments or posts as a representation of a whole. I try and read comments and posts based on the network and the relationship. I know many relationships and comments contain the depth of previous ideas and thoughts expressed across BeBee. So when @Ali Anani comments or replies to one i know he has probably done so with that individual many times before. Most likely on related and unrelated topics.

    Given this, i have seen a consistency in his responses that shine a clear light on his core values. I have seen him also debate heavily with other Bee's and even then his core values were not abandoned. This consistency is what we gravitate towards.

    #28 @Deb🐝 Lange thanks for your comment and thoughts. The topics discussed are divisive depending on your perspective. Early in my leadership career in small business i had to learn quickly that customers, employees and vendors all had a single thought in mind. Their success. Theirs and mine were not always congruent to accomplishing the goal(s).

    I watched success over the years (and failures), and found that most of the success happens where a shared set of core values existed. The last picture in the post displays some of these. I lead with these core values to retain a consistency in my leadership. When we can face adversity from a solid foundation of core values of respect, active listening and professional responses then we can be consistent in our outcomes.

    BeBee is creative and i have learned a lot from reading yours and others posts. My learning accelerates when differing opinions arise within the comments. I like old fashion debates. I know debating is not fashionable these days. Within these debates folks defend their positions and reach deeply into their wealth of knowledge and write words that support their ideals. I learn from them. This also seems harsh in today's world.

    I agree with you @Harvey Lloyd - I am attracted to people who I sense through their words and actions online, who read and respect diverse views, who add to ideas, rather than pull them down, who converge ideas allowing new patterns to form and something new to bubble up and emerge. This seems to be happening on beBee in ways that are different from other sites. I feel like LinkedIn is more individualistic, facebook possibly so, even though it has it''s groups. BeBee seems to be more community, sub-community orientated. Although I am only connected to a small group of people on BeBee so I can not say what the overall trend is, other than if the small group I am connecting to has these characteristics, are they a "fractal", a pattern held within the larger group? My core values, hmm, respect of all living beings and their diverse ways of living in our eco-system; freedom with respect; love appreciation gratitude; - hard to come down to 3. I am attracted to the development of ideas and learning from one another in BeBee - I sense the building of a core community I am connecting with, gradually, as time and interactions permit.

    #24 Not to labor the point but i do agree that the outcomes of negative views and the journey can lead to distorted thinking. My post is trying to deal with this point, not necessarily place someone in a fixed position. Core values offer us a tool to create a different perspective during the times when we are maybe myopic or focused on a negative aspect.

    I agree with @Phil Friedman distorted thinking is developed through a process of behaviours and interactions. I find myself there sometimes. With core values i can find my way out or maybe avoid the place all together..

    So in a simpler form the core values offer us a way of avoiding the processes you speak. Doesn't mean we necessarily take advantage of this process as often as we should.

    Core values like honesty, humility, forgiveness, seek to understand and many others can assist in avoiding the distorted view Phil points out.

    #22 The challenge is always are we able to see our past blinders and the blinders imposed by our judgments and expectations about others.As @Phil Friedman once said in one of his comments on a related issue -distorted thinking is contagious-and I added -when it becomes a habit it spreads.If we can't change our perception first we will not be able to change or create anything new.I completely agree on what @ Mohammed A.Jawad said, if we can't change our negative perception we may regress to a negative mood.

    #21 I agree with the concepts you discuss and would add that the perception is the aspect of the post i was addressing. Perceptions do change based on moods, current events and even to the degree of who might be presenting. Given these variables how can we ever shape ourselves into a society that is sustainable?

    A solution is core values. Yes i have perceptions and they are influenced. But if i have a clear set of core values then i can filter my perceptions through them. I liked what @Mohammed A. Jawad said on a related post "While being fluid or flexible in approach, we all need luminous lampposts for traversing in a truer manner. If not, we get drifted without any directions or reaching any destination." I took his "Luminous Lampposts" to indicate a core value set.

    We should constantly seek different views, but we should also remain true to our values. I don't believe the two are mutually exclusive.

    @Harvey LIoyod. Our perception of values is not so much determined by what people bring to us, as by our views toward what they bring ,not so much by what happens as by the way our minds look at what happens.When we become optimistic we will view the same thing differently ,we will see the brighter line of the cloud instead of seeing its inside darker color,which may also deprive us from seeing the colors of the rainbow in the sky.Values are not values unless they are shared.The more often we look at things in the same way ,the more difficult it's to think about them in any other way.When we become regularly tuned to our judgement about people we may lose our personal balance,integrity and start criticising or blaming others or even turn around our established values.

    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!

    "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.

    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?
    Harvey Lloyd
    24/11/2016 #53 Harvey Lloyd
    #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

    #102 Love it! HA... here we go....

    Your acceptance comment reminds me of M. Scott Peck's Road Less Travelled (which I imagine you've read ;)

    The first 2 paragraphs speak to acceptance (CAPS are mine):
    "Life is difficult.

    This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult - once we truly understand and ACCEPT it - then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters."

    The paradox, duality, good/bad, negative emotions (suffering) topics also remind me of Dan Millman's The Life You Were Born to Live. From the chapter, The Law of Perfection:

    "From a transcendental perspective, everyone and everything is unconditionally perfect; from a conventional viewpoint, perfection doesn't exist" -J. Krishnamurti

    "The Law of Perfection presents a paradox because it contains two apparently opposite truths, which operate at different levels of experience.

    From a conventional view, this world is a place of suffering: crime in the streets, the hungry, the homeless, the oppressed. Even without the daily news, in our own lives, when we get what we don't want, we suffer; when we don't get what we do want, we also suffer; and even when we get exactly what we want, nothing lasts in this realm.

    From a transcendental perspective - seeing ourselves and this world with all its difficulties from the all-encompassing wisdom and patience and love and understanding that comes when our hearts are open - then all of it, the joys and sorrows, the suffering and pleasure, and everything going on in this moment on planet Earth, is absolutely, completely perfect in terms of a great process of evolution."

    #101 No rambling here @Jared Wiese but your perspective and insights. Thanks for sharing. When you write, "Until we reach a threshold, we probably will not really change the circumstances that got us, stung.", it reminds me of Carl Rogers quote, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."
    Jared Wiese (+VALUE & RESULTS)
    27/11/2016 #101 Jared Wiese (+VALUE & RESULTS)
    #84 yes, Sara. Thank you for the insightful reply! More good perspectives.

    My simile also speaks to tolerance. Many people can tolerate 1 sting. Some cannot. Until we reach a threshold, we probably will not really change the circumstances that got us, stung.
    I am thinking of the more current definition of tolerance. To me, it then gets into how much pain we take before changing. This ties to negative emotions and your discussion point.

    - Am I "really mad/sad/hurt/NEGATIVE" that I got stung? (notice the reactivity)
    - Am I "grateful/glad/smarter/POSITIVE" that I now know what I did or can do to avoid getting stung (proactive).

    It is not me vs. the bee. It is me AND the bee. Perhaps that's another perception of duality?! We both exist and do what we are innately born to do (sting/react)
    . . . or learn to do better (sting/not swat at a Bee's nest, then get uoset about it) if we are more evolved.

    Please excuse the rambling-if you feel/choose to see it as such. I hope it ties to many points in this discussion.

    Part 2/2 @Nikki Petersen continued from part 1.....Tension does exist in the "negative" until the expected resolution occurs and then the positive/release takes place. The duration, intensity and sense of familiarity of the tension will create different experiences. Nothing simple about all of this but certainly makes for interesting discussion.

    #96 Part 1/2 Thank you @Nikki Petersen for taking the time to read my post and for your comment. I appreciate you bringing up trust/mistrust as they are are an important contribution to this discussion. You write, "For us to create the trust that enables the sitting with the tension, there also has to be mistrust. There has to be doubt that the outcome will be what we hope it will be." My sense of this is a mature view point; something we are able to form out of accumulated experiences, whereas trust and mistrust are formed very early on in human development. It's not a matter of hope for the newborn and infant to have his or her needs met, its an expectation. The newborn or infant trusts that his or her physical and emotional needs will be met; it's unspoken and innate. It is when those needs are not met that mistrust begins to form and produces feelings/sensations related to anxiety.

    In any group, individuals bring their own meanings formed from experiences related to expectations and will either be "naively" open in their trust or on the other end of the spectrum, suspicious, or anywhere in between. Trust is earned; we shouldn't trust anyone until they have proven that they are trustworthy. In terms of my clinical work I remind my client of that. I have to work hard at earning his or her trust. As well, I remind my client that there are three aspects to the trust in the work; they need to trust themselves that they will do what they need or able to do in their work, trust the medium; whether the talking or the creative arts materials and process, and then there is me, where the client can take the time to develop that trust.

    I learned a bit here and that's always good. This is a solid post, nicely reasoned and resolved and very useful, especially for Americans at this extremely stressful juncture in their history.

    But I was a little taken aback at some of the comments. This Max Carter fellow very much appears to be a walking contradiction of sorts. "I have one rule in life. Do not go to jail. If you like it, do it again, if not, don't." What does that even mean and what does that have to do with your piece? The first time I read it I got the distinct impression he was approving of those who choose a life of crime.

    There's a certain etiquette that needs to be observed here. People spend a lot of time and energy on their posts, and slathering the comments with non-sequiturs and discussion highjacks is really bad form. The whole idea is that the engagement should add to the value of the post, not take the discussion off into the wild blue yonder.

    I guess you could accuse me of the same thing, but it needed to be said, because I'm seeing a lot of it lately.

    @Sara Jacobovici I enjoyed your discussion of this topic. I do enjoy this forum because it allows me to think deeply, which I need in my life. Thank you.

    I wonder where trust fits in? In trying to apply the topic to my own life, personal, business, and parenting (among other aspects), my observation is that so much of the tension and dissonance is created by trust/mistrust issues. For example, the employees can feel that they should focus on the journey of discovery to multiple outcomes, but they have to trust that their ideas will fall on receptive ears; isn't the reason that sitting with the tension is uncomfortable is because they're not sure they can trust what will happen in the long-run?

    With your other example, music and therapy, doesn't the client need to be able to trust that the outcome of being with the tension created in a session will be useful or meaningful? That trust isn't just there, automagically -- it has to be created.

    For us to create the trust that enables the sitting with the tension, there also has to be mistrust. There has to be doubt that the outcome will be what we hope it will be.

    And that's where the circle comes back to negative emotions. We've all been hurt and we've all experienced the disappointment of misplaced trust. It's part of being human.

    The tension between positive and negative then, must come from trust and mistrust?

    #89 The chaos behind why the birds flock together has many variables down to the individual birds and the place they take within the flock. there are no rules, they feel their way though it with instinct and at times in any flock or even pack there are challenges for pecking order or place in the pack.

    The alpha is the strongest leader of the flock or the pack that guides them true and out of danger based on the leaders intuition which is chaos based in the now and the variables in a state of flux being read in the moment.

    We as humans foolishly think ourselves more evolved from the animal and will go against intuition in favor of thinking we can think better than our intuitive senses. That is the biggest road block we create and keep in place for ourselves.

    I have one rule in life. Do not go to jail. If you like it, do it again, if not, don't.

    When you start creating rules you have to start excluding those who don't meet with your rules. For me i think it's healthy not be hanging out with someone in the middle of creating a crime and to avoid breaking the law myself in my own actions.

    When people do not comply with the laws we impose in society they go away from society and are excluded from society.

    Rule building is about creating mechanisms for and parameters for exclusion.

    #88 There are simple rules for birds flocking together> The feedback effect leading to chaos is based on simple rules. No one pretends the rules are always right, but we strive to improve them. They help in focusing our efforts. Nobody till now can predict the weather of of its complexity, but it was the three simple differential equations that helped in noticing the butterfly effect. We are trying to do the same.
    Max🐝 J. Carter
    27/11/2016 #88 Max🐝 J. Carter
    #87 I disagree because existence works on the principle of organized chaos and as a part of existence so do we which means all the variables are variable in the moment and no equation is ever going to suit the moment you are in unless you create it and can control all the variables which control is an illusion.

    To create an equation is to engage in willful delusion that one has control over anything. We mange ourselves we don't control anything because we are organized chaos not a machine.

    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.

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.

    #40 "....then experiences, then meaning, then expectations and then emotions." You described it very well with this statement. I do agree they coexist. But in the world of self help it is incumbent that we look at the expectation if the emotion is not gratifying ourselves. Not to separate but rather to establish a cause and effect inner monologue.

    In my world of understanding we can observe something and render a discussion. The language would be different within our inner monologue of searching for greater existence. I find it interesting how folks who write about such things slip in and out of the observer role within their writing. I try to write based on the inner monologue perspective. Not as an observer.

    Our inner monologue, if we are trying to seek new understanding, has to eventually come to motivation. Expectations are a motivating factor in our actions, and may produce an unintended result that turns on an emotion. Certainly not the exclusive motivator but a large one.

    #39 Much to think about @Harvey Lloyd. One thing that stands out for me is when you write, "Emotions come from our expectations of the world which are designed through our life experience." I see a different timeline in this process (developmentally); first emotions and expectations co-exist, then experiences, then meaning, then expectations and then emotions.

    #38 This is what makes passion so nebulous. When you explain it to another it doesn't seem quite as passionate, its a personal ideal.

    Passion is a force of energy. Energy is something that can be broken down into components. But i can't break them down for you, only myself. There is no recipe that works for everyone. But the ingredients are still the same.

    I noticed that you placed an S at the end emotion of your definition. Implying that passion is a result of.... not in and of itself a single emotion. This is my point. Emotions come from our expectations of the world which are designed through our life experience.

    A challenging discussion. Similar to how do you describe anger. We can discuss the outward appearance of the emotion as felt by others, or....we can discuss the components of the emotion. A third description of anger is my personal feelings and judgement, what it caused in me.

    Not sure we need to define passion so pointedly. Our interface with others is where we need to understand the motivation of passion in someway so we can make a decision of whether we want to join.

    #37 This is why I like our engagement and exchanges so much @Harvey Lloyd - they're so dynamic. Not at all predictable. In this comment I am struggling with the notion of passion as "a container of emotions, skills and knowledge." For me, passion is something we feel, not as an emotion but as I mention a hybrid of emotions. I am having a hard time imaging passion holding anything else but emotions. But.....I am willing to try. I'll get back to you. Thanks Harvey.
    Harvey Lloyd
    11/01/2017 #37 Harvey Lloyd
    Passion is a very nebulous topic of discussion. I enjoy folks who are passionate like you @Sara Jacobovici. But when it comes to the description of what makes up passion it becomes a quest for "who am I". Passion is a container of emotions, skills and knowledge. To much of any one ingredient is like a bottle rocket, heavy anticipation, the lighting of the fuse and the 3 second exhilaration, followed by whats next.

    Our passion container should have a good recipe, if you will, of the three ingredients. Its not necessary to have the full range of each ingredient but we do need to know where to find the missing ones.

    With the correct ingredients we can secure a growing recipe where we share the passion and grow it not only in ourselves but through others also. One of the biggest killers of passion is when our container is easily broken. The ingredients are still there but we cant collect and organize them anymore. The paradox, the recipe is the designer of the container. The passion container is challenged when we share the passion. Keeping in mind this recipe of passion has been simmering in you for some time. This is not so when it comes to the share. I might need time and throw a little skepticism your way during my merging with your passions.

    Passion that includes the goals designed around win-win and can be pointed out to others will usually survive the skepticism.

    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 -📃 Engenharia&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?

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.

    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.

    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".

    "In my quest to understand me, it is tempting to consider a universal consciousness. It is tempting to consider the fact that communication with it is possible. At least in a sub conscious way. You were right about my ego though, loosing myself in consciousness does not feel as the solution. A healthy relationship with it, would be my goal."~ @Peter van Doorn

    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.

    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.

    This comment is a comment on your comment and not the original post.

    I certainly hope you´ll change your mind about being on here less. I´d miss you.

    What helped me a lot, probably saved my life, was being in sales for a few years. Before that, I had a lot of deep thoughts. I could spend days, weeks with questions that can never be answered. At one point, these thoughts became dangerous in the way that they divided me from real life.

    Sales forced me (brutally) to start simplifying things and focus on matters at hand. I am the last person in the world to say you should not reflect or have philosophical thoughts. But they should not torture you. The ability to simplify and accept things helps with that.

    Before I was in Sales I thought about the purpose of life myself. For ever. Naturally, there can never be an answer, only theories. After being in sales I´d say: Reproduction. Done. Next.

    One thing is for sure: Life is for living. (Ewh, that sound´s cheesy, but think about it).

    PS: You mind is not coming up with solutions that are beyond your understanding. Maybe a blockage? Yes, meditation is very helpful. It´ll get you to focus on the now and your emotions and give you a break from heavy thoughts.

    I find the comment of @Sara Jacobovici representing mine truthfully @Peter van Doorn. It is not hat I am not seeking the truth. More, it is the truth. Repeating the quote of Sara ""Believe those who are seeking the truth; doubt those who find it. - André Gid" I wonder if we find the truth then we need to question its validity to keep searching for it. Lovely buzz

    @Peter van Doorn, I am honored that you wrote this just because of our conversation. Mark Passio (there are many others that helped me to learn about the knowledge of the seven fine arts. Once you grasp the concept, you will quickly connect de dots.) helped me to find the following phrase how I see my Self: Does truth exist, if perception is not real?

    You observed me correctly by asking whether I existed in total emptiness and peace. And no, it is not that I am not allowed to speak the truth! What makes you say that? I prefer to hold 'the truth' closer to my chest these days than I did before. It depends what truth is being spoken about, I guess, is a better way of understanding my point of view. You know very well what it means to be mis-understood. Jesus was mis-understood. The ups and down you refer to are still happening in my life too. Although, I must say with far less passion as before. I've learned to let it be. Acceptance of what is. As emotional as I am, I have been able to detach my Self from the experience that my Ego had attached to what I thought wat the truth was at the time. The difference is that now my ups and downs feel like as if I am swimming in the ocean swell. Cool!

    Your observation of that the tone changes the outcome, deserves far more thought! Or, does it? As far as honesty is concerned: it helps me to remember less.

    It's not unusual to have things come up at the time we are waking up. Also, most things are experienced beyond words.

    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.

    @David Navarro López said :"Knowing how humble he is, I know he would say he did nothing.This is precisely my point. A small mass idea, on its right moment and with enough speed, can be definitive. But get no mistaken on this point. Only from a big man can arise these kind of bubbles.Thank you Ali."

    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. "

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").

    We live in an age of innovation, when creativity is of increasing value.

    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.
