Comments13/09/2016 #20 Deb Helfrich#19 Thank you for the great compliment, @namita sinha. Your words mean much more to me than a very easy to make misplacing of the cursor just a few millimeters too far to the right.
But we all like to share knowledge. I received no notification of the minus or unliking of my comment, so many people can rest at ease that the occasional blunder is not being reported. For an independent confirmation, @Ben Pinto#15 I played around plussing and minusing your comment just to test exactly what actions triggered a notification to you. Would you care to let us know?13/09/2016 #19 namita sinha#16 @Deb Helfrich , I am thoroughly convinced of your beautiful mind and the depth of your insights here again strengthens my understanding that I shall continue to meet great souls as you through Sir @Ali Anani's posts ! Great pleasure reading your comments and glad to have come across your views @Deb Helfrich, and I must confess that in my hurry and unbridled enthusiasm I seem to have committed a great blunder - instead of pressing the + key to increase the "likes", I seem to have clicked the "-" button , doing a discredit to your great comment - relatively new that I am to BeBee ; I sincerely seek your and Sir@Ali Anani's apologies here , and let me see how I can undo the blunder :( at the earliest.12/09/2016 #18 Ali Anani#16 If I have a wish then it would be that @Sara Jacobovici be reading this segment of your comment @Deb Helfrich:
What a beautiful expression of the love of the movement of life, @Ali Anani. This is an enough reward to read Deb, and I know Sara will find this very rewarding.
It is sad only genuinely successful people will appreciate your other gem "I know for a fact that these successes feel hollow when we cannot share our joy and accomplishments with those who contributed along the way". It is a feast day here today and this comment is gift.12/09/2016 #16 Deb Helfrich"Success isn't localized to the individual and its boundaries encompass others."
What a beautiful expression of the love of the movement of life, @Ali Anani. It is all about integrating tasks beyond our own benefit so that we can spread useable ideas, actions, and good feelings among as many people as possible. Collaboration doesn't happen in a vacuum, and when success does, I know for a fact that these successes feel hollow when we cannot share our joy and accomplishments with those who contributed along the way.
And the ironic thing is that even the purported slight was illusory, as time changes everything, and right now, as I go back to what I missed reading over the weekend, it looks as though the mother and daughter buzzes are equal in numbers. A slow start should never be mistaken as a lost opportunity.12/09/2016 #14 Ali Anani#13 You expressed what I meant to say beautifully and thoughtfully dear @Deb Lange. Who owns an idea? Nobody. How often I coin a term and Google it to find somebody else has already used it. With all honesty, I am grateful to this message because I define creativity by our ability to find ideas to turn the negative into positive. We can't make a problem more complex and then try to solve it. So, this part of your comment is spot on " We can bounce off someone's idea and integrate them with our own experience and allow new ideas to be germinated". Unfortunately, the opposite is true as well. We can denature hooney ideas by overheating them. This is my next buzz. Again, I am very grateful for writing a rich comment with lots of wisdom.12/09/2016 #13 Deb LangeDear @Ali Anani _ I love how you responded transparently here, to someone's concerns about how your ideas have fruited elsewhere. To me who does originally own an idea today? Perhaps before everyone could read, a person who first wrote an idea could easily be traced. But today, most of us are all very well read, and ideas are so profusely written and read across the world like seeds scattered across the internet who knows where they first came from. Wherever they land if they stimulate new ideas if people build on them, isn't that what is so wonderful about the internet today. We can bounce off someone's idea and integrate them with our own experience and allow new ideas to be germinated. I have loved watching you do this. Isn't that the idea of bebee - to allow for the germination of new ideas as they are sown across the world? I love your humble response.12/09/2016 #8 Ali Anani#7 It is feast in our country today and so if I am late in responding you know why. Thank you dear @Aurorasa Sima and my gift for the holiday is your comment. Yes, turning negative into positive is the test for our creativity. Negative comments or messages are an opportunity for new ideas as this buzz is.12/09/2016 #7 Aurorasa SimaYour wonderful poetic question, as well as my answer, have inspired people to exchange their points of view. You are very successful as you get people to think, reply, and contribute. You inspire them.
Toxicity might seem like something worthy of being feared. But negativity is just another approach to understanding and responding to content. Socrates got a lot of that too.

Comments10/09/2016 #12 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#9 Absolutely - the fact that the shadows and silhouettes are generic makes this message multiethnic, gender-nonspecific, and international. A key point for the universal message and @Ben Pinto, it makes me want you to make a few images/quotes for my Twitter messages! Excellent image! Just Outstanding!10/09/2016 #6 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#3 We need more 'Positivity' right? I love the image and how the man appears to be kneeling down. Such a concept of servitude, while prevalent in the good medical community, espouses all public health workers and attitude towards helping the general public. One note, @Ben Pinto - this hits the mark for ethnicity and gender! Universal image that captures the mind.

Now where did Groucho go? :)09/09/2016 #15 Lauren JuzlThank you for this article @Gert Scholtz having just finished my literature degree I can say that I was just as obsessed with oxymorons, it was unusual for me to leave an exam without squeezing in something about the oxymorons, or at a stretch oxymoronic imagery, within the text I was studying, glad to know I'm not the only one.09/09/2016 #9 Charles David UpchurchVery interesting trivia. That was my attempt at an oxymoron. Seriously, an interesting article. I don't know if it was on purpose or by accident, but you stumbled into something very deep with this sentence: "It momentarily suspends belief and suddenly illuminates a new truth." Initially I thought to 'correct' that by suggesting the cliched 'suspension of disbelief' (as in an audience reading a book or watching a movie or a live performance of a story), then I realized that "suspension of belief" (not disbelief) is not only more profound, it may be the key to science, art, and world peace. Very cool.
One question...what parts of this were sourced from "Dr M Grothe. Oxymoronica. Harper Collins. Glasgow. 2008"? Thanks for mentioning that source, by the way.

I love Nietzsche. “My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it—all idealism is mendaciousness in the face of what is necessary—but love it.”

Comments23/08/2016 #10 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#4 @Pamela L. Williams, the subject of self-awareness leading to self-realization, comes up quite a bit (although not necessarily as I stated it) - then once you realize a character about 'self,' you increase awareness and presumably 'change.' But it never stops, right, @debasish majumder? Perhaps we aren't limited to be 'only' IN or OuT of a box.
