    Great piece @Savvy Raj. It is hard to "choose" a line but I wanted to shared which line jumped out at me, "Silence defends without a word". I will use this in my silent contemplation tomorrow. Also, I had to compliment your line, "Silence dwells in the spaces between the steps..." with Mozart's, 'The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.'

    I did miss your writing. You are my favorite writer on here. Sorry to hear that things have not yet picked up for you. The darker the situation the better it is to socialize. But I get how it also becomes harder.

    If you would post what you are looking for on LI and share the link I would be happy (and I bet 40 more) to share it with our network.

    I like squirrels a lot. They´re nice people. And if you would be a dark wizard the number 7, and even more 13, would be fab numbers of books to have out there. It´s a matter of perspective (:

    @Sandra 🐝 Smith, I think many people can relate to parts of your story! Thank you for sharing and I do hope you overcome your fear of public speaking. How fun it would be to do a TEDx talk. Think of your end game and try to remember your story is important and if others can relate you've got your audience. When I took public speaking in College (in the 2000's), I had to warn my Professor that I may begin to laugh, it was a nervous habit I had when speaking in front of an audience. I didn't laugh, maybe because I admitted it out loud before I began speaking? I was also nervous I wouldn't have enough to say in what seemed like too much time to give a speech, well I went over by 10 seconds and I wasn't done LOL. I loved public speaking so much I began taking more courses. Not sure how I'd feel about it now since it's been quite a while. I remember focusing on only 1-2 people on each side of the room as well. It make it appear I was scanning the audience but I was just going from one side to the other and focusing on a few. You've got his! Thanks for sharing your story, enjoyed.

    Sandra, this really doesn't have a lot to do with this buzz, but you mentioned Van Gogh, one of my favorite artists. Thinking of him made me think of the Dr. Who episode about Van Gogh. Did you ever see it? You should, because I think it's one of the best ones of the series. (Van Gogh comes to our time and is able to see his work on display and hear how much people love it)

    #35 The art of selling is the act of that quantum leap between emotion and imagination, reality and aspiration, merging fact and fiction.The purely logical and rational mind finds no place in the realm of creativity and passion; it is the inclusive, imaginative and the artistic mind that finds meaning and reveals meaning in such realms. The former can at best may write plodding user manuals and insensitive satire, but the latter always weaves wonderful stories and tells inspiring tales. Please continue to inspire those who would make an effort to wonder and wander with you...on this journey.

In this world where darker forces try to curtail both the human and creative spirit, awards for imagination and craft become magnified in their significance - and it is with this sentiment and happiness I congratulate all who connected with Phenomena Communications and all who will be inspired and connect with Phenomena Communications, to make it that gift which keeps on giving for those who create and those who enjoy creation.

    You Betcha your father would have been proud @Andrew Books!...You have stepped out of his shadow and grown into yourself...A legacy you will bestow upon your own children;-)

    "I wish I had stories like that to tell my kids, but I was too young and really don't remember much from that age, so I rely on my siblings to relive those stories from my father's past."

    So you create your own story:

    We must learn to express ourselves intelligently, with an approach to life with courage instead of fear...learn that wanting what you want is not enough when sharing a relationship...Value yourself with mutual regard for the other in terms of common concerns, and you travel the path of transformation and recognize the power of individual perspective greatly influences the enigma of reality and its various dimensions and levels.

    " I truly wonder if my choices initially might have had more to do with what I had hoped to be a father's pride for his son vs. actually following my own path."

    Again I say to you...Your father would have been proud;-)

    Much love to you,

The reflection , the beauty of that sight is quite remarkable. Sometimes we bees pass through like light with an idea and the diamond nourishes the idea as it passes through.

    Wiping Away the Condensation
    Wiping Away the CondensationAs some of you may know, last week I unearthed a post from my drafts folder and brought it back to life. It was a 2-year-old post and it just felt right to give it some love and attention – finally. And today, I find myself there again. Revisiting...

    I am very grateful to my friend @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman for tagging me to read this wonderful buzz.
    @Laura Mikolaitis- you are an astonishing writer. You wrote brilliantly "I became complacent in my quest for tolerance and neglected the power of change". Your story tells how powerfully you realize the power of change. The idea of condensation as "Condensation filled the mirror. Yet I was not ready to wipe it away. For wiping it away meant seeing. Seeing meant accepting. And accepting meant change" is brilliant. Sometimes we procrastinate the dews that block us from seeing ahead and reluctant to wipe it away. We need the power to change habits. We need the power to quit bad habits such as smoking and live a healthy life. We need to remove the smoking clouds forming on the mirrors and be able to change for great purposes. We need to see the future through the mirrors before time complicates our lives. We need to see, to accept and then to change. Yes, we draw similar conclusions even though the inspiration came from different experiences as Franci pointed out.
    I shared this amazing buzz.

    "I was lost in the intricacy of the maze and I needed to find my way out. I was finally ready to wipe away the condensation from the mirror and face me."

    This post has touched me deeply, @Laura Mikolaitis. I read it on the other site a few times and read it right before bed last night. I find it hard to adequately express how well you have captured the core conundrum I - and I think a lot of the writerly sorts of folks face. As we can become internally lost in the intricacy of what we can do in our minds......

    Our own minds can become labyrinthine places that lock us into an immune system battle where we attack our own best qualities and struggle with how to be simply who we are.

    And yet, the solution is simply awareness - the NOW, the PRESENT:

    "I’m always amazed at how something that seems so trivial can really turn out to be enlightening"

    I am beginning to become comfortable with the jarring thought that the search for meaning is extraneous, but the search for feeling - anything that ratchets our focus into the active experience of being alive - is all that we need to ponder when it comes to feeling the incredible awe of being alive.

    The second we launch into storycreating - the internal, ego-based, judgemental sort. We pop ourselves into a zone of losing touch with the flow of feeling, the zone of sensory wonder, and the blissful practice of being alive. Close

    I truly enjoyed this, Laura. I can relate because there were times in my life where I tolerated things rather than stand my ground. After a while, one becomes too accepting of things that could have been changed for the better. In the meantime, those "things" compound and eat away at one's happiness. There are times when I feel we can't see the forest for the trees. Exceptional post.

    #1 Thank you @Sara Jacobovici for your thoughtful and encouraging comments. Change can be a scary word for some - even me; which is why I enjoy writing about it. Doing so gives it life and purpose and helps me to grow. We should be nurturing change where and when we can. But it starts within us and before we can champion it in the outside, we often need to nurture it on the inside.

    Definitely appreciate the metaphor @Laura Mikolaitis, you used it perfectly! As much as I am passionate about the power of the metaphor, I am passionate about the discussion about change. And Laura, you do it justice when you write:
    "You see, what I failed to realize was that I could change things. Maybe not necessarily the circumstances, but I could certainly alter the manner in which I dealt with them."

    #6 The huge problem, @Ian Weinberg is not discovering the roles of neurotransmitters, etc, but making the leap from labelling and correlating, to the behavioral world. As an example, there has been strides in understanding some of the biology behind mental illness, but we are just not very good at truly understanding how to "fix" it. The tools are crude, the results all over the block. And the mechanism for pharamceuticals are still often unknown and results unpredictable.

    We're at the beginning, but there are a lot of people writing pop psych, and misleading folks about what we know and can do.

    As I read your buzz @Sarah Elkins it brought me back a bit. I remember when I worked for the County I would keep lollipops and other candies on my desk. Our department dealt with divorce proceedings and many of these people would bring their children- I always had something to give the kids; they were already scared and stressed from the ordeal not to mention coming into our building, it would always put a smile on their face. I love how you used the "F" word to get a reaction and laughter. My mom never used the "F" word and one day she was really upset... she had a hard time expressing herself and would turn inwards. My sister said, "Mom when I get upset I say, Shi*, *F", da*m," you just need to say that and it will make you laugh." My mom was determined she would not repeat those words. My sister and both started saying it while we were also cracking ourselves up at the same time. All of a sudden we hear this faint voice repeating the words. Then mom said it in a stronger voice, we were all laughing so hard. Mom didn't like swearing but on that day, she realized it wasn't directed at anyone and they were just words. Great story Sarah, I really enjoyed this!!

    #3 Thanks for the invite @David B. Grinberg. Enlightening article @Sarah Elkins Yes @Robert Bacal we're still groping a little in the dark, but we've made significant strides in certain areas. Regarding humor and curiosity as enhancers - it's pretty clear at this stage of research that they both increase dopamine secretion. Curiosity enhances hippocampal function through dopamine secretion thus enhancing memory/learning. Humor reflects a dynamic where an unpredicted/surprising occurrence that is noted as such results in a dopamine mediated 'spurt of mirth'. See https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/neuroscience-is-a-joke Raised dopamine (together with raised serotonin) have been shown to diminish inflammatory activity generally (brain and body). An important effect since chronic inflammation underpins many illnesses.

    #3 @David B. Grinberg That's a myth. To add about neuroscience:

    While great strides have been made due to scanning technologies, much of the stuff one reads about "neuroscience" is pop psychology -- written not by neurologists and researchers, but by people who tend to be ill equpped to interpret the results, journalists and/or pop psych. writers. As @Sarah Elkins states, we know remarkably little about how the brain works, (and how brain function maps on to the external world and behavior.

    Nice buzz, Sarah! You're preaching to the proverbial choir on my end. I've read that most humans only use about 10% of our brain power. Thus, what would be possible if we were able to use 50% or 75% -- the answers would boggle the mind (for lack of a better term).
    I'm reminded of the Hollywood film "Lucy" in which actress Scarlett Johansson plays a character who is able to harness increasing amounts of her brain power. Here's the movie trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVt32qoyhi0
    I'm copying beBee's resident neurology expert, @Ian Weinberg, as I'm interested on his take. Thanks in advance for chiming in on this, Ian.
