Comments18/12/2016 #3 Ali Anani@Devesh Bhatt- wonderful poem and you are a born poet. Your words, meanings and senses flow so well in your writing.
Reality is the ruin of dreams,
But it's not what ruined my dreams.
In fact it's a source, to seek recourse,
So that dreams come true.
You are a resource to seek recourse. Shared without hesitation.18/12/2016 #1 Mohammed SultanYour poem and ideas not only hit our reality,but also our dreams.We should strive to reach an exact point of fit between our realities and dreams.'Your points of reference ,became borders of relevance' because everyone owns it, and 'borders are not meant to be crossed',because you have to match the current HR rigid criteria of selection.Keep going with your imaginative ideas,since they convey the instinctive feelings which many of young people on linked in or on beBee have had about the natural role of HR.I hope your poem would also hit the imagination of the hiring managers.

Comments09/01/2017 #5 Max🐝 J. CarterI am a master intuitive and teach other people how to strengthen theirs.
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.

CarterOnce you understand what you are afraid of, fear the emotion is settled and you see the situation clearly and instead of using fear to make your decisions you are looking at cause and effect, decisions and consequences. Once you no longer fear the consequence it becomes a matter of whether or not it's worth it to experience the reaction/response.22/11/2016 #24 Max🐝 J. Carter#21 What can go right in the face of deception is my calling of bullshit on the activity we all know happens.
In acknowledging that it happens and does get called out is what could go right what actually happens as a result as all have seen when it happens is out of my control.
For me, I bring it up because what could go right is other people speaking up and out against said activities.22/11/2016 #23 Max🐝 J. Carter#20 Part 2
One who understands why they fear something and plans accordingly may be doing something healthy. It all depends on what you fear. If you set a result and your fear is failure you look at every way you can fail and what ever is left is the path to your chosen result. What can right is is learning from failure so next time you turn left instead of right.
I wanted to avoid getting into the Chakra system and concepts that might offend religious people. I leave it there so that those who receive the lecture can ask about it. The heart chakra runs strongest on unconditional love meaning that we don't pick who we love everyone no matter what they do or say. This is what the love of God is.
This does not mean we never get angry or sad it means that our anger if often for others as is our sadness much like being an Empath taking on their emotions without ego as if they were own.Love is fierce in defense of the weak. Love mourns loss. These parts of healthy love expression and to repress them is to create damage in yourself and spew that damage everywhere. IN fact if someone is lying to you when you heart chakra is open it will hurt and might even piss you off. Which is the healthiest response to being lied to.22/11/2016 #22 Max🐝 J. Carter#20 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich I love the questions, thank you.
It is naive to believe you can trust people to never inadvertently use what they know of you against you. At times we do things that we do not intend to do that cause harm and if one s interest in protecting ones life one makes adjustments to what one allows to effect one and what brings foryh the power of one less one be exploited by one who intends to harm one.
21-23 are like that for emphasis. To drive the point home.Having to read it 3 times reinforces it and the savage that human always will be no matter how evolved will always use the pleasure to mask pain in order to survive the experience. Its why there are many combat veterans who miss the combat because in order to survive it they had to learn to enjoy it. This si an ugly truth and I am not sure what the numbers are in reality however over half of the combat vets I have met deal with this issue..
If you are going to say you have faith in something the only way to test that faith is to let go of everything else. If you have found your faith to be rewarded through the results, letting go of your faith so you can explore what others have faith in can often expand the nature of what it is you have faith in and expand your level of conscious awareness and understanding.
It helps to create a neutral first thought process rather than a reaction of defending what one has faith in and never listening to anyone else..One will be better able to respond from a non defensive stance and attitude.22/11/2016 #21 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#18 I am calling bullshit, Max -" 9. What could go right?
9.1. The only question one need to ask when facing a decision.
9.2. Anything less is a fear based decision on ones part in hopes to avoid what one thinks could go wrong.
9.3. Setting the intent for what can go right allows one to have those things become probabilities instead of possibilities for one’s life. "
I turned the focus on having the community look for souls and you went into great detail about what is, might, and likely to go wrong.
I keep my eyes on my own behavior. I reach out when I see harm being done. I strive to keep conversations interesting in my unique way. So do many others. It is the right thing to focus on the right things.

No one intends to design a community that rewards abusive behavior.
However when those in the community who make behind the scenes agreements to make each other popular the community suffers for their greed to be satisfied.
I was approached at least once for this kind of thing in every social media community I have participated in.
It happens and then gets explained away as something innocent and someone such as myself gets called names like paranoid.
There is no way to police it and the culprits know this and know they do what they always do and say "It's not a click we just happens to all like the same stuff and tag each other on everything to make sure our numbers are high."
No one can prove otherwise and the lie holds and they continue to do what they can to make sure those they don't' like have their shit ignored or buried under other material.
I am an Empath and a Telepath which means I have read the energy of the totality of this site and the people I could single out by name for such activity.
How I study and environment is to mirror its totality based on what shows up in my feed. Its a honed skill I use for lectures as I mirror the entire audience to make sure I lower my level of conscious awareness appropriately to ensure then entire audience understands the words coming out of my mouth.
It's not normal however I still do it anyway. That takes a mastery of being an Empath Telepath and Medium using all skills simultaneously while it looks like I am just talking.22/11/2016 #15 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#5 "The worst of all abuse is to ignore someone." I agree with the unfathomable interest in celebrity and your obvious meaning, but I also do want to point out the under-layer which is that those who chose to follow the crowd are ignoring their own soul. Which is exactly why they can be distracted so easily by shiny monetary things and superficial looks.
I do my best to look for souls and let them know they are being seen, but it is really a community function. Let me dive into the full text now...21/11/2016 #14 Max🐝 J. Carter#12 Here is how it reads now as I updated the piece.
37. Meditate daily.
37.1. Why not?
Meditation assists one in centering oneself and dealing with the stress of life. Meditation aids one in hearing the inner voice for guidance. Meditation sessions depending on intent set for session can aid one in many ways.
(The below was added in response to a comment on this piece. Thank you Ali Anani for the contribution.)
One who does not meditate will not find inner peace. In meditation one teaches oneself to develop and maintain this inner peace by listening to the inner voice as it guides.21/11/2016 #11 Max🐝 J.

One who does not meditate will not find inner peace. In meditation one teaches oneself to develop and maintain this inner peace by listening to the inner voice as it guides.
I think this closes that hole.
Would you agree or am I missing it?
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.
