Comments19/02/2017 #7 Cyndi DocyThis is so true. When we constantly dwell on things that hurt or angered us, it will keep in a negative frame of mind. But when we choose to think about the more positive things that we want to do or just come our way, it will keep us from going down into a pit that is hard to climb out of.19/02/2017 #6 Deb🐝 LangeIn my book Laura I invite people to connect with a buddy to share what they are learning - 2 of my readers @Deb 🐝 Helfrich & @Cyndi wilkins connected & have inially become buddies to share and exform latent anger that has been sleeping within for awhile. I share strategies for s forming emotion, beliefs & energy that has been stuck in our body. When we pay attention & release energy that is stuck in our body memory we find new found freedom.19/02/2017 #5 Deb🐝 LangeThanks @🐝 Fatima Williams Fatima for connecting me to Laura's post. I agree with you Laura. I sense you might have an interest in my book, Trust Your Senses - Embodied Wisdom for The Modern Age https://www.amazon.com/dp/0995437203
As @Deb Helfrich says - it is s book to experience not just read - and it is all about what I call our next step to integrate thinking with sensing the language of our body - a language we have neglected as we have been so focussed on thinking as if it only comes from
Our mind- brain. I believe the more we develop these capacities we will have another exponential shift in our expanding awareness and potential. I look forward to connecting.18/02/2017 #4 Deb 🐝 Helfrich"Listen to your body" This is as simple and as complex as life gets, @Laura Donnelly. Our wisdom is our body, but as a modern society we have build so many structures and habits that ignore our bodies that we never even take a few seconds to listen to the constant dialogue our bodily sensations are trying to engage us in.
Glad to have you buzzing around the hives on beBee, and I look forward to reading more from you!18/02/2017 #3 🐝 Fatima WilliamsHi Laura First off Welcome to beBeeland🤗🐝🤗
Great buzz on listening to our body and controlling out thoughts and it's actions. @Laura Donnelly. I am reading a book called Trust your senses by @Deb🐝 Lange Where she talks about listening and trusting our sense. She talks about our inner dialogue and how to create inner freedom. I am halfway through as it's pretty intense and a wonderful book.
Choice plays a very big Vital factor here ! Do we choose to listen to what our body is saying?18/02/2017 #2 David B. GrinbergGreat advice here, Laura, with which I agree. I also concur with the comments of @Phil Friedman below, who is a very wise man. I've shared this buzz in the hives, "Lifestyles" and "beBee in English" and "Bee Inspired." I'm also following you now, Laura, and hope you can follow back. Keep buzzing!

Comments11/02/2017 #11 David B. GrinbergVery creative and impressive buzz, Debasish. Time, for all practical purposes, is a manufactured and artificial creation to give order and structure to our lives. As you know, time is relative and moves at different speeds on Earth and in space. Scientists say the faster one travels in space, the more time slows down compared to Earth. Thus, by traveling near the speed of light for one year, a decade or more of time might have passed on Earth. Therefore, if one were to return to Earth after intergalactic travel near light speed, it would be similar to time travel to the future. Moreover, as Einstein theorized, space and time are one and form the fabric of the Universe (space-time). I hope the mysteries of time are solved during our time here on Earth. The wonder of the Universe awaits us.10/02/2017 #9 Joris PlaatstaalWhy do we seem to need capturing life in words and poems?
Time is relative, subjective and objective. That leaves time to obtain a freedom you can use or neglect.
Time (or life) is not something that is forced upon us. I see it as a gift.
Am I wrong in my perception that many of us experience that gift as a burden?
We are not obliged to endure life and time. It is a gift to us. Not a curse.
It only seems to be a curse, in our addiction to achieve wealth and power.
Please, don't let me be the only one that is able to be happy with the gift we received.

So that dreams come true.

There is value in both. It takes a high intellect to manage the skills I was born with that I have learned to master. In doing that I have done a lot of study.
I find the two work best in synergy allowing them to feed each other and make greater leaps in progress than either could on their own.
Science will still move at the snails pace it is until it learns to understand the value of things that can not be measured by technology. Once that happens we will see advances at a rapid rate that will make us question what took so long?08/01/2017 #3 Zacharias Voulgaris 🐝#2 Although I don't agree with the theory of two hemispheres operating independently and exclusively undertaking certain functions, I see your point. We neef to strive for balancing different aspects of our brain functions, though even an imbalance in these functions can be very interesting and insightful even.08/01/2017 #2 Ian WeinbergRaises the whole issue of left and right hemisphere function. In all right-handed people (and most lefties), the left hemisphere is the seat of logic, reason, measurement, speech etc = 'intelligence'. The right hemisphere is the seat of big-picture sensitivity, emotion = intuition. Both hemispheres are comprehensively connected to provide the multi-faceted appreciation of experience and interaction. It's when one hemisphere dominates the other or when there are varying degrees of connectivity, that things get interesting. For interest (and references), see a previous post of mine at https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/re-discovering-the-intuitive-mind08/01/2017 #1 Devesh BhattThey are both complimentary, messups are no excuse to suppress one for the other.
We don't upgrade like machines with replacing faculties, learning is about the inputs as well as using the faculties properly. Suppressing one may possibly damage the ability to self correct

Comments01/01/2017 #1 Devesh Bhatteverything co-exists around us. Conflicts are temporary but we persist with the idea of conflict, it is a starting point of improvement - pitting things against each other hypothetically and calculating scenarios.. but we get caught up in the first step. We dont find meaning but start to relish the conflict, perhaps we discover an ulterior motive and let the conflict persist. Its not just in politics, it seems to go on all around us.
Thats what i think and i concur with your views, but its just an opinion.

Comments28/12/2016 #3 Richard BuseI think we can strike a balance between displaying respect and discretion, and being genuine in how we relate to others. I also believe living that way requires less thought and effort than trying to be PC or attempting to maintain personas on social media that do not accurately reflect who we truly are.28/12/2016 #1 Aurorasa SimaAnd where is the birthplace of PC? Commerce? Lawyers suing for this and that?
Regarding PC on LI I will share the following thought: Not everyone is a public person. Some people, like myself, are private people. We know we need to do SM but we neither want to participate in heated public discussions nor would it help our business.
One could make the argument now that social media is about forming meaningful connections and not just about business. In which case, I would argue that meaningful does not happen in public for me and that I feel this should be respected.
I don´t have arguments on the street and I believe that does not make me fake. Politeness and manners are important to get along with people. There is a difference. Commenting on every stupid post that it´s stupid would be ill-mannered more than it would be honest.

Philosophy+ 100 buzzes
Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems concerning matters such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. The term was probably coined by Pythagoras (570 – 495 BC). Philosophical methods include questioning, critical discussion, rational argument and systematic presentation.
