Comments11/11/2016 #1 Jared Wiese 🐝DARN good food for thought!
I'd suggest a discussion on values vs. PRINCIPLES:
“Correct principles are like compasses: they are always pointing the way. And if we know how to read them, we won’t get lost, confused, or fooled by conflicting voices and values.
Principles are self-evident, self-validating natural laws. They don’t change or shift. They provide ‘true north’ direction to our lives when navigating the ‘streams’ of our environments.
Principles apply at all time in all places. They surface in the form of values, ideas, norms, and teachings that uplift, ennoble, fulfill, empower, and inspire people. The lesson of history is that to the degree people and civilizations have operated in harmony with correct principles, they have prospered.”
“Principles, unlike values, are objective and external. They operate in obedience to natural laws, regardless of conditions. Values are subjective and internal. Values are like maps. Maps are not the territories; they are only subjective attempts to describe or represent the territory. The more closely our values or maps are aligned with correct principles—with the realities of the territory, with things as they really are—the more accurate and useful they will be.”
—Stephen R. Covey

Comments08/11/2016 #4 James McElearneyWhat a fantastic buzz Graham, we so often take things for granted as human beings, we think we've been there, done that, worn the t-shirt. Sometimes when we stop and take the time to really look, and let ourselves fall in to the moment, is when we realise what is really around us. It incredible to think we know more about outer space then we do of our own oceans. We discover new species on a daily basis and many of the things we take for granted are the things that make this planet such an awe inspiring place. As adults it's too easy to get wrapped up in our own lives and we lose that sense of wonder we all have as kids. I'm pretty sure we can learn as much from our kids as they can from us08/11/2016 #3 Praveen Raj GullepalliThat is so true dear Graham. To quote you: ''I was reminded that having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one's own importance, knowledge or abilities is limiting''. In addition to the seven consequences/side effects you mentioned, i think it also makes a person judgemental. When the sense of wonder ceases, the layers (one, few or all) of cynicism, satire(unwarranted), prejudice, presumption, intolerance, envy, condescension, etc fog the perspective, befuddling one's very reasoning mind. One jumps to hasty (and nasty) conclusions, causing bitterness and pain to himself and hurt to others who are just being awed and are dealing with the magnificence of what nature can do to one's heart and mind the best they can and trying to express it! I have seen this happen in recent times here and was shocked and dismayed at how things can get so totally skewed out of perspective just because one has lost the sense of wonder. I quote from a meme I read recently - Some folks hurt you and then act like you hurt them! ;)07/11/2016 #2 Laura MikolaitisI love to watch the jelly fish. They are so illuminating and captivating to me. Of course my other favorite, is the sea turtle. Whenever we go to the Aquarium, I could stand there and watch her forever.

Whenever we go to the Aquarium, I could stand there and watch her forever. I love how you tied this piece together @Graham Edwards 🐝. Wonder is everywhere; especially when we open our eyes and hearts to it. I always say "it's the moments that count" and so I try to savor them every chance I get. Thank you for sharing this. Close
