    #1 Incredible number - as @Moi Kliniger knows this is in my top 3 Stones numbers. The late Brian Jones played the sitar on this one which gives it it's distinctive sound. Used as a theme in a few Vietnam war movies as well, perfectly encapsulates the despair and desperation of that terrible conflict.

    #1 So agree! The writing, the talent, the whole collective sound is awesome. I think sometimes the melody and beat over shadow the lyrics and what the message conveyed gets lost like many other great songs. Subject to interpretation as everything is I guess. Great music, no matter. So jealous you got to see them perform it!

    En mi opinión, hay otras formas de 'meditar' y cada persona ha de encontrar la suya propia. Para mí, cocinar, puede ser también una forma de meditación.
    Toda actividad que realizas totalmente consciente, con todos los sentidos en ella y dedicándole tu plena atención , es meditación. Quizás no una forma 'homologada' pero igual de beneficiosa y reveladora.

    Si aceptamos que el presente solo existe en nuestro cerebro en cuanto a respuesta de los estimulos pasados percibidos, podemos concluir que no hay un solo presente, sino tantos como percepciones de ese presente... Las percepciones no son únicas, ya que de otra manera, un mismo estimulo, daría lugar a una misma respuesta... y sin embargo las respuestas a una estimulación similar, pueden ser asombrosamente divergentes... El presente perceptivo se convierte conceptualmente hablando en una construcción de pseudorealidades mentales que nos generan la ilusión de una realidad inexistente y solo percibida por nuestro cerebro. Bajo estos principios, podemos modicar la realidad de cualquier captada por cualquier cerebro modicando la percepción de su presente... es decir, alterando su pasado mediante estimulos para construir una idea de presente que le proyecte en el futuro... Algún día, todos podríamos ser FELICES y podríamos generar vivencias inexistentes salvo en nuestro cerebro y percepción... La realidad virtual no ha hecho más que abrir la caja de pandora... El uso masivo de móviles, de redes sociales son otros ejemplos de nuestras vidas en paralelo disociadas de nuestro presente y de nuestra realidad... Podríamos crear la ilusión de una prisión en la que hemos permanecido 20 años, aunque solo hayan pasado 5 minutos de tiempo real. Podríamos alimentarnos mediante una sonda y percibir el gusto de un buen plato de pasta, podríamos ser pobres y sentirnos como autenticos ricos, sin problemas, solo conectados al modificador de nuestra percepción... y siguiendo el hilo argumental, ¿Quien me asegura que no nos esté pasando ya? Tiempo al tiempo... :)

    El problema del presente es que no se puede establecer un punto linea espacio tiempo en su configuración porque cada estimulo que percibimos y configura nuestra imagen de presente (percepción de presente) tiene su propia linea tiempo espacio que no es coincidente. Solamente en nuestro cerebro, se crea la gran mentira del presente... CARPE DIEM! :)

    Between what happens and how we choose to respond there is a space. It is in this space where we have the opportunity to choose our response and that response will determine the results we achieve. The ability to choose is our greatest gift and power.

    Where does this leave the philosophy of Mindfulness ? Which relies on being in the present not the past but if that's not really possible?

    "We need to understand and replace the habits we have created that are cause us to give away our energy.
    This is also why we steal the energy of others. When this happens the results often include drama, chaos, conflict, distrust and disengagement."

    I like this as it exactly describes why many of my clients come to see me (as a Psychologist).
    Many of them are carers like myself and we are constantly getting our energy stolen.
    I am aware of this and try not to fall into it but it's very hard to teach my clients to do this. Any ideas?

    Without hesitation I dare say this is one of the best buzzes I have ever read. It is so rich and thought-provoking. The paradox here is that the author @Phil 🐝 Johnson, MBL and Brand Ambassador @beBee writes "Our focus on continuous thought stops us from truly being present. In reality, we are separate from our thoughts. We are the observer of our thoughts". I need to pause so as not to be an observer of my new thoughts.
    Phil, I love the cover image. Is it possible to steal it "legally" to incorporate in my next buzz? @Sara Jacobovici and I exchanged comments recently which I am expanding into a buzz. I need your image.
    One paragraph that captured my attention is your writing "The journey to authentic emotionally intelligent leadership starts with our self. We need to understand and replace the habits we have created that are causing us to give away our energy. This is also why we steal the energy of others. When this happens the results often include drama, chaos, conflict, distrust and disengagement". I shared this buzz proudly. Close

    #4 This is why I do not put stock into comments but into energy, and the energy of reflection you speak of is presence. The students in my college hate my emails because their meme is that attention is precious, but I say meaning is precious and the meaning we deposit is raw material. That is the problem with education is it not, it is all about doing/having and not thinking/being - so my doing is not your being, all I have here at beBee is thinking in what is presence that got presented.

    What separates reflection from comments is the energy it generates and how we link this energy up will determine what it lights (hence the word enlightenment). Words like "goals" and "challenges" are also raw material but processed as an energy called reflection it can take us to a wholly different place like it did for Leo Babauta here https://zenhabits.net/no-goal/

    The last thing I want to do is change others for they are responsible for that change but a comment is in the past - reflection is in the present - and the act of you reading what I am thinking out aloud here is you reading my past - for the simple reason presence is in my present.

    Presence is where my energy meets my consciousness where I am fully alive, and so is reflection a foundation like a house or is it an energy that travels through a house that makes a house a home and shifts making a living into making a life?

    When I was taking selfies in the early 80's, it looked odd that someone at that time would point a camera at themselves and take a picture, so when my kids discovered an old album of selfies, they screamed "Hey! Papa used to take selfies!!!".

    The same goes with reflective practice. People are not familiar or largely do not engage in reflection, yet both of us do and therefore we represent the early majority of this particular way of thinking. Of course reflection cannot be compared to selfies. Reflection is a higher order faculty, whereas selfies is a lower order indulgence. The irony is that in recent decades I tend to limit being in photographs because reflective practice helps see through things and become conscious of what is image and what is presence.

    Nor do I take pictures on my travels to capture moments to add them to the 10,000 other captured moments because it is easy to engage visual collection - but it is more meaningful for me to be present and enjoy the blessings of a mind that is more relaxed and free - and ironically in such a mind, there is greater room to learn to see, which sits at the basis of what we can imagine and in this way reflection is a complimentary intelligence to vision and this "learning to see".

    Casey, A prediction: You will do well in the goals you choose. I can say that because you have learned one of the great lessons of life. There always will come a time when you have succeeded, failed, finished or tripped over something. It is then that you need to step back and reconsider. It is worth distancing and rediscovering yourself as you have been transformed. Always.

    This is a great saying “Once the game is over, the King and the pawn go back in the same box.”
    After decades of working, I am really over drama.
    I try to keep it out of my life except for my counselling room when it's the client's not mine !

    Some of my relatives are right into drama. They couldn't miss one episode of Big Brother. Now there's a plethora of those reality shows The Biggest Loser, Hoarders, Survivor, The Bachelor and all those dating programs, The Block and all those makeover programs, Masterchef and all those cooking programs and I am sure you can name 5 more in any language.

    These become young/other people's role models and view of the world. This interferes with making good career, relationship and life decisions.

    I don't understand why people like drama. (of course from an academic view I can) But it's too tiring and I'd rather be doing something more interesting and rewarding like losing weight by exercising, going camping in a remote area, finding my own date through socialising with people I like and respect, painting my house and gardening myself, cooking new recipes for family and friends.

    Surely this is more satisfying !

    Great article - there a plenty of more games we adults are playing such as marital, party, sex or predator games. Eric Berne wrote an interesting book over this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Berne View more

    #27 @Lynda Spiegel - a few years ago, while we were visiting with friends at an outdoor festival, one of our boys came up to the group, presumably to ask for money for snacks, and happened to hear part of our conversation. I don't remember the context, but someone mentioned my name and the phrase "grown up" in the same sentence. Our son, maybe 10 at the time, smirked and said to the group: "MY mom? Ha. MY mom's not a grown up." I was totally conflicted, proud and a little weirded out that our kid didn't think of me as a grown up.

    #27 ha, I don't want to be a man either. In some ways I think men have it tougher. I only say that watching my husband do work on the outside of the home and repairs inside that I could never do. Thanks to his skills we've rarely had to call anyone in to repair anything which has saved us tons of money over the years. About 5 years ago he took a jackhammer and put in french drains, re-did our basement walls and added a sump pump. Big job, it took about 1 month of heavy work but he saved our basement from being a wet basement. It was beginning to flood at times... that was not cool.

    #18 I'm glad you defined a rag for me @Shelley Brown lol. So I should ditch my tunics? ;-) Ah I do love them. I'm all about comfort and still looking er... presentable but I don't feel I need to primp like I did when I was younger. I don't miss the primping days, too much work.

    #30 Apparently they have been ranting about it for three years - I just found the spools of articles today, and the videos that go with it. I am so glad that I am overseas and all of this is just a spectator sport for me.

    @@Brian McKenzie thanks for reading. I understand your comment. The story was not in any way meant to male bash. It was my way of being self expressive about something I do to myself and no longer wish to do.

    We dont hold the door open anymore because it's sexist (according to the new crop of SJW's, UK Daily, Boston College "Research" and entirely too much feminist blathering rants on just such topic) and since we can't guess which switch flips for you that day, in what ever phase of Pre, Post, or Perpeta MS you may be cycling through - we afford you the same 3 to 6 seconds of attention we get, remember - you're a strong independent woman that doesn't need a man ~ get your own door.

    #5 you hit on my trick, @Deb Helfrich. The reason no one suspects my age (other than my relentless refusal to act it, what ever acting one's age means) is that I have always kept my hair as long as when I was a teenager. And as a "technical model" for Redken, I do get free color, so hiding the pure white that my hair seems to want to be helps, too. But I'm with Franci, I own the number, just not the baggage that comes with it.

    #9 @Jim Murray love you biggly back! It was a great exorcism! Thank you. Mine didn't stem from the Kardashian era it came from growing up in a family were the outsides were more important than the insides and the expectation was that if you looked good you would get married, have children and live happily ever after. I didn't have that season in my life and always felt like something was wrong with me. I know that is a complete lie. xoxo JJ

    #11 @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher - a Szmata is a yiddish word for rag but mainly used for a shapeless top. I agree, we do realize our priorities are different. I think a lot of my olderexia came from the fact that I come from a very vain people who valued the outside more than the insides and it's time to just let go. We can be badasses together!
