- Producer16/07/2017Branches of WisdomMy exchange of comments lately with the thoughtful Tricia Mitchell led to the writing of this buzz. Tricia wrote "Dearest @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you are too kind. I have greater breadth than depth, where my knowledge is concerned...
Comments31/07/2017 #52 Tricia Mitchell#7 Thank you dearest @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I appreciate your mention of our conversation and that it formed the basis of your buzz. There are a couple of strands now running through my mind. In terms of branches of wisdom, and your buzz where you invited people to enhance your model (I believe there was reference to venn diagrams, it may have been represented as a continuum; I cannot find your buzz right now, I thought it was this, https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/i-love-you-what-does-it-mean but now I'm not sure).... I'm currently pivoting (yet again), which leads me to question whether we start out as saplings, grow roots, branch out and diversify, only to then, with our breadth of knowledge and wisdom, converge on and simplify all that is? In my personal experience, I'm now being shown the 1 thing that will set people free and it is to be my key message. The vehicle and the message do not reflect my journey, but were all nutrients necessary for my growth. It's so deceptively simple that anybody without the knowledge I acquired, but who was wise enough to feel the truth that has been known through the ages, could impart it to others.
Is it about knowledge or wisdom? Knowledge can enable us to be wise or act as tyrants, depending on how we use it. An uneducated man can be the wisest soul that most educated men seek counsel from. A knowledgeable man can masquerade as a fool, though in wishing to be compassionate in my communications, that seems unkind. Maybe we can liken it to the Riddle of the Sphinx? "What walks on four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, three legs in the evening, and no legs at night?" We start off simple - become complex - then refine & simplify our knowledge as nourishment for others?31/07/2017 #50 Tricia Mitchell#47 thank you dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I apologise for the tardiness in my response. Ovid's Metamorphoses springs to mind. It's been an interesting time & continues to be so. The irony about being consistent in our communication with living bodies is not lost on me.
As I am being more purposeful in my communications, if I am led by the Divine to address it in a buzz somehow, I will do. I thank you for the suggestion, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee22/07/2017 #48 Yogesh SukalThank you @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee for appreciating my comment. Continuing to the point of turning information to knowledge and knowledge into wisdom.what if information we have is not enough. does this lmiting our wisdom.
One of philosophy group, someone posted "when nothing is sure everything is possible".
I guess most wisest approach to keep mind curious and open.
hence the some of few examples in academics trying some laws from one field to another field and it works.
So in my opinion branching out with curiosity and with open to all possibilities while branching out towards wisdom.18/07/2017 #45 Tricia Mitchell#25 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you mentioned if the trees could talk I know of people who purport to communicate with animals. I know what I am able to do in the non-physical realms, so I looked for a tree communicator. I don't know who authentic this man is or isn't, but I have heard of others who claim they are able to understand what trees are communicating. Here's a short clip of Jim Conroy talking about helping trees to be healthy, internally, then supporting them to be in synch - in groups, based on community and categorisation, then "balances the ecosystem" Never heard of him before until I searched online this evening https://youtu.be/UElnvKgOovY (under 4 minute video)18/07/2017 #43 Tricia Mitchell#36 love your comment, Jean Serio, so many people prefer to remain in their comfort zone, enduring the discomfort of the familiar, than taking risks. Growing up (depending on which era you belong to), we are told to go for the 'safe bet' not to risk everything that we have worked for. To be grateful for what we have accomplished (even if it has made us miserable in the process). I have met accountants, who joined the family business, because their parents were accountants. They didn't question whether if what they wanted to do was at variance with what was expected of them. Then, sometimes, they wake up one day in their 40s and question whose life they're living, as it's certainly not one of their choosing... Then begins the search to uncover who they truly are and their desires, when they're not looking to seek approval from their parents.18/07/2017 #42 Tricia Mitchell#38 Indeed dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee one of my buzzes in the making is of a woman who is preparing for exams. She is worried that she will not pass the assessment. Reaching out for assistance in a social media group, everyone suggested strategies. As I l tend to go against the grain, I asked her a veiled question: "Supposing you didn't have test anxiety?" What I meant was, "What is the benefit of this fear you've created?" Instantly, she got the awareness: fear of failure and money constriction. The tuition had cost a lot and she couldn't afford to fail. Yet, rather than choosing to change her belief pattern, she chose strategies (which work, but on a clean slate are far more effective). So, yes, fear does have a function - protection, including protecting us from failure, if we exhibit perfectionist traits. It's amazing how false assumptions can restrict our lives and choices.17/07/2017 #39 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#37 surely you are a born poet dear @Tausif Mundrawala. Yes we make false assumptions. It is onlt recently that science found the intricate relatioship between trees and fungi. Who knows if there is a hidden relationship between weeds and trees. Love the clarity with which you express yourself.17/07/2017 #37 Tausif MundrawalaSometimes we think that a weed like branch which had grown without our permission should be axed as soon as possible. But we may not know that the weed like branch would flourish one day and would become the rising star in the entire body of a tree. Getting rid of branches won't help because we may channelize our energy in trimming and manicuring it to look it's best. We don't know the fact that the most uncertain shapes and sizes of branches would make it an artist's delight when we see through through the lens of one. In the difficult time of grief which I am going through right now have allowed me to channelize my energy into more reading and reflecting on certain subjects and topics. Let these branches flourish to it's best level and allow it to bear fruits in future. Am glad that you shared this with us and am thankful for all your support, Sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee17/07/2017 #36 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAThank you Ali Anani for another thought-provoking post. This particular post reminds me that often people don't branch out because they feel comfortable in the position they're currently in. Perhaps this is not the best position for them, nor will it provide them the salary or benefits required to better support their family; nor stimulate passion or a sincere feeling of accomplishment. In short they generally fear 'branching out'.
An interesting article in Psychology Today, by Mary C. Lamia PhD - 'Why You Should Fear Failure' - Dr. Lamia states it succinctly - "Many of the professionally successful people I’ve studied—both procrastinators and non-procrastinators alike—tend to fear failure. Some of them worry that a fear of failure might jeopardize their careers, especially those who tend to procrastinate as well." Here's a link to the full article - http://bit.ly/2uv5ppI

Comments29/06/2017 #40 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#39 This is a quite interesting comment @Tausif Mundrawala. I always ask myself what makes me change direction. YOu offer one great reason "This pain leads us to change directions or if pain leads us to that direction than it becomes easy to chart our path towards success". Great inspiration28/06/2017 #39 Tausif MundrawalaIntially our pain leads us to unbearable and excruciating one where we feel that it's never going to end but that pain slows down slowly and gradually it makes us strong to question what the damn is pain. This pain leads us to change directions or if pain leads us to that direction than it becomes easy to chart our path towards success. Thank you for this wonderful buzz,@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee28/06/2017 #34 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#33 If we look back n history and whom e call disabled achievements we shall be sorry for our modest contributions. The "Dean of Arab Literature" the Egyptian Dr. Taha Hussein became blind when he was only two years old. One of the greatest musicians who passed away three years back was also blind.As you say blind people can see what we fail to. When they are seeing we are blind. Mind you dear @CityVP Manjit these comments from you and few of @Louise Smith will be the basis for my next buzz.28/06/2017 #33 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#32 Do not forget that there were New Testament words such as "they have eyes but they do not see, they have ears but they do not hear" - and that on any given day half of the Earth is in light and the other is in dark. A blind genius is someone whose eyeball does not function but in the black space that is blindness, the blind man is not blind when he can see greater things in life that we cannot see. In seeing the blind man as disabled we continue to see life as a square thing where we place people in boxes and need these compartments to categorize people and find comfort in this conformity, rather than be in the sphere of greatness we live in.28/06/2017 #32 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#30 Dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit- keep writing and I keep my mind busy. If I tell you that I have three buzz ideas from your comments on this buzz I shal be understating reality.
You wrote "All media is the creation of someone's vision but not all vision is media". Immediately, you brought to my mind a presentation that I wrote on Unequal Opposites.
Now, you provide me with a great example of what I mean. The eyeball has a ball shape regardless of the shape of the eye. I wonder if the focus of the eyeball is affected by its surrounding (eye shape) and what factors will affect the performance of the eyeball, besides its surrounding. Al I can say is that your comment leads me to the freedom of asking, wondering, searching and seeking knowledge. Your probing comment has turned my eyes into new possibilities.28/06/2017 #30 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#25 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, no matter what particular shape each of our eyes are, the eye is always a ball and that ball is either connected to the media it see's or the vision that feeds conscious existence. Our Earth is a ball there are no square planets only square rocks. We have certainly never found another Earth, never mind a Square One.
This eye ball either feeds the brain of control which is our external existence or it feeds the brain of freedom which is our internal choice. For me this is profound as anything I can think, the measure of which is always the profoundness of thoughtless existence or simply thinking about life rather than creating value that is life.
Somewhere along the journey vision becomes control, and that is the only sadness we see in our world, the happiness is our ability transform vision into a life that values freedom.
All media is the creation of someone's vision but not all vision is media - vision is either based on all our yesterdays or it is the laser of now, etching a new future, new ways of thinking, smarter ways of being because freedom is our freedom to think, have vision, and add value to life.
Great vision creates great media but it should never substitute greater vision - and that is the challenge called leadership. We can either lead for control or lead for freedom. The great leaders will create greater freedom because their brain is a ball, their eyes are ball and with in this ball the great game of life plays out just like a marriage - better or for worse, in sickness and in health.28/06/2017 #26 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#24 In reality you are a co-author of this buzz @Lada 🏡 Prkic and I therefore find it difficult to respond. However; I paused on this segment of your comment "But I've always remained true to my own course and never felt the need to change direction. I've always listened to my heart and my intuition". For me, I did superficially change direction, but now thinking about it I actually changed methods. Instead of using my scientific background to research chemical molecules I am now more into researching human molecules. I only realized this to a much brighter state because of your comment.28/06/2017 #25 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#23 If I claim that I don't feel sad because of the truth in your words @CityVP 🐝 Manjit then I shall be lying. "so the irony is that in this state we are not focused on spreading our branches and roots, we become merely object of the media owner". This is one example from your comment of what I mean.
I find myself drifting in to a river because of your comment. You wrote "There are many people who are driftwood just being carried by the river of media". I am not in the river media. I am in a different river flowing with some new thoughts because of your superb comment. Again, you wrote "our round peg is the human eye and the square hole the media we fit that eye into,..." Now, I find myself asking how about people with eye shapes other than rounded? Some people have protruded eyes, others eyes that are upturned and others downturned eyes. Are these related to the shape of our mind eyes? Are those people with more rectangular-like eyes fit more in the square pig?
Finally, @Sara Jacobovici may find this part of your comment relevant to her buzzes on Monday Talks!
You kindle my mind Manjit.28/06/2017 #24 Lada 🏡 PrkicI'm so glad that my response to your comment has served as an inspiration for this thought-provoking post. It made me think about my path of life.
I am on the same steep and narrow pathway I had chosen many years ago.
The path went over many mountains and hills. It sometimes went through a dark woods. But I've always remained true to my own course and never felt the need to change direction. I've always listened to my heart and my intuition.
There were some detours off the path that kept me moving forward when I encountered obstacles, but these detours brought me back to the same trail again.
I respect the path of others. Some chose to take a new direction in their walk of life. But I think, and this is something life taught me, that we are still able to grow although keeping the same direction.
However, never say never.
We develop through the whole life. When we reach the top of one mountain, life takes us to another. I'm now standing at the top of the mountain of my success. Perhaps my heart will tell me it's time for a change and show me a different direction. :-)28/06/2017 #23 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#19 A round peg can fit a square hole but what we do not see is that our round peg is the human eye and the square hole the media we fit that eye into, whether it be a television screen or a always-on cell phone screen. This inevitably brings me back to the conditioned (if not mentally sedated) lives many commercialized lives lead. I am not excluded from living this branded and mediated existence and also partake in the very same conditioning, sometimes my round eyes are also transfixed into the square hole of media.
What we learn from your buzz is that even tree's talk to the fungi because the tree is aware of its environment, which is exactly what we are not aware when our attention is focused on a square hole - a square hole that has a black hole kind of force and attraction. Yet even as I think this, I am aware that the brightness of the screen (which is actually a rectangle - so we use the word square as a metaphorical approximation) has a backdrop to it, which is the room. With a cellphone the backdrop is whatever environment we happen to be in when we are engaged on that screen. If we notice the backdrop and the screen as a window that supports our awareness, then we are legions smarter than any tree, otherwise we become a lump of dead wood.
There are many people who are driftwood just being carried by the river of media and brand so the irony is that in this state we are not focused on spreading our branches and roots, we become merely object of the media owner. Tree's are not slaves, they are living contributors to the act of life giving yet we are the one's who are rooted. So the moral here for beBee is not to turn more people into wood but to focus on spreading the roots and branches so meaning and not media or even madness flow through them. Servant leadership is not a top-down model of the universe, servant leadership is a part of this tree of life.28/06/2017 #21 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#20 Yes, walking the goat path enriches us with its challenges and the joy of surmounting them as well the gained experiences. I fully concur with you @Harvey Lloyd. We can hover over the path, but walking it is what makes us more wise. The new products deprive us mostly of this joy as they take us on a helicopter trip.28/06/2017 #20 Harvey LloydThe goat path of life is difficult. We live in a world that wants us to believe that we can use various products and services that grant us instant gratification. Even with enough money this lifestyle is so unfulfilling.
The difficulty of the goat path is where character is built and gratification becomes wisdom. With each branch of the path new wisdom and understanding is found along with a deep sense of joy.
The one who rides the helicopter to the top of the mountain vs walking the path is a challenging branch. But i know the walk along the path will give me new beginnings i would never achieve within the helicopter. Although both people would bring home similar pictures of the event the one who walks the path will bring a rich and shareable experience.28/06/2017 #19 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#15 Very true and maybe we need to use upside down term more often @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. Sometimes we try to fit a "rounded " ball in a square pig in a round hole. The funny thing is that the opposite "square" ball in a rounded peg" is funny. How can a ball be square?
- Producer11/06/2017Growing on the Cliffs of ChallengeOn the bus from Ankara to Istanbul I enjoyed greatly the scenery. I saw my different types of trees growing in symmetry, one-sided symmetry, growing on cliffs and slopes. I began thinking on us how we go through sloping lives and find ourselves...
Comments16/06/2017 #25 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#24 Dear friend @🐝 Fatima G. Williams- you say you don't know if saying this makes you shallow "I don't know if that makes me shallow or deep but IMHO we are all living on the edge of life and death". In my opinion this is one of the most deep quotes I have ever read. Yes, we don't know when we shall pass away and so we live on the edge of life and death. It is a fact of life, but the way you stated it is eloquent, smart,,and deep. If this is your shallowness what would then be your depth? I would say ocean deep.15/06/2017 #24 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsA inspiring nature tour and an intriguing buzz with insightful comments. Your thoughts are like the water that falls on the cliff @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador important and enriching and we lucky bees get to absorb it first. I don't know if that makes me shallow or deep but IMHO we are all living on the edge of life and death. We exist for a minute and the next minute we are gone. Like the wind. So looking at trees living on the edges and cliffs only gives me nature's acknowledgment an affirmation at I’m doing ok and I'll survive just like they do. I will grow beautiful like the tree on the cliff and see the beauty of the world around me.
To living life on the edge! Thanks for the lovely buzz and my best favourite picture is the last one 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗 Stayblessed Dr Ali Anani14/06/2017 #20 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorLiving on the edge must have its challenges. Having deep strong roots prepares us for the draughts we may encounter. If we stay strong and steadfast, we have a better chance of helping others survive. Shallowness presents the need for balance thus giving those with strong and deep roots a sense of purpose.11/06/2017 #15 Yogesh SukalAs famous quote
‘If you don’t live on the edge, you can’t see the view’ -vicky corrington
But to live on the edge is not that easy unless your inner strengths are strong and deep as the roots of the tree which provides us nutrients required we call inspiration, self-belief and strength to keep the balance while living on the edge.
Inspired from nature @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. Thank you for the post,11/06/2017 #14 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#13 Thank you so much for your great comment @Lance 🐝 Scoular- you are truly a scholar Scoular. You deserve the title "The Scholar Scoular".
Yes, I tend to favor "green"metaphors and by thais I mean metaphors derived from nature. Your onion example resonates with me. I appreciate your good words and I feel so encouraged by them.11/06/2017 #13 Lance 🐝 ScoularInteresting and challenging concepts to cogitate on.
For over 20 years in my Importing Exporting and International Trade Courses, I refer to the need understand the foundational basics that other concepts are built on.
I use the analogy of the the critical but unseen foundations of a building, be that a one story home or a mulitstory office block.
In this thought provoking article you open up a much more organic analogy, replacing foundations with roots.
The concepts you invite us to consider are onion like.
On many layers!11/06/2017 #11 Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SALovely piece Dr @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.. these slope-based forests in Turkey are so beautiful and abundant: we saw many on the way down from Dalaman to Kalkan last year. May us humans learn the important lesson that "both the plant and the tree can actually survive side by side in spite of their different proportions".11/06/2017 #8 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#5 Thank you dear @debasish majumder and your comment has a special place in my heart. I am reading your last buzz and in fact started thinking about you. You write stories on people living on slopes and cliffs and this buzz should benefit greatly from your insights.11/06/2017 #6 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#2 Not surprised at all my dear @Sara Jacobovici that you highlighted the shallowness paradox. I agree with you completely in that proportions have a major role to lay and play. How deep is your writing "It's reality has the richness of its own depth"! This is a wonderful statement and warrants probing. So, reality could be as shallow plants wit shallow roots, or it could be deeply rooted in the soil. Where does reality get its "waters"? You mesmerised me with this deep thought.
I also enjoyed reading why the balance of work-life is distorted. We may have deep roots in our work, but shall roots for our lives. ANd yet they live together "You wrote "What is interesting is that both the plant and the tree can actually survive side by side inspite of their different proportions". Is this also extensible to work and life? Very deep thinker you are Sara.11/06/2017 #3 Sara Jacobovici@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee writes: "In our increasingly complex world requiring us to grow on cliffs and slopes we need to develop great roots to survive and help others survive too. We need strong roots to face life difficulties. I believe identifying what makes great roots for us is a worthy issue."11/06/2017 #2 Sara JacoboviciBeautifully written piece @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. An intelligent and insightful piece which I was able at the same time to experience in all its senses. I could feel the air and wind, hear the movement of the branches and leafs, smell the earth which supports the trees and see the beauty of every detail. In response to a couple of points, you write, "trees also face competition from plants with shallow roots as they get the first "touch" of rain and deprive trees from it. Sometimes shallowness helps. Is this a paradox of life?" The paradox can be that depths can be measured in comparison and obtain one result, while the proportions of the object measured will produce a different result. In other words, the plant is not "shallow" in proportions to its own species size. It's reality has the richness of its own depth. What is interesting is that both the plant and the tree can actually survive side by side inspite of their different proportions. And the second point, you write, "Genuine leaders have their roots firmed in what they do." With this statement Dr. Ali, you have written the law of integration. This is why the duality of work-life balance does not exist. Thank you as always for sharing how you see the world and our place in it.
- 09/04/2017@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I just found this article - you will love it. I was going to write a big post but it will take too long. i am just going to share it now. I love this quote by george David Haskell, "There are more than a very few seedlings of one type of species, insects will come to know that common species and will chew it down to the ground. So if you become too common, what happens through the ecological process of the forest is that commonness is trimmed down, and that’s a force that promotes diversity within the forest.
I knew these things intellectually — I’ve been teaching biology for many years. But to actually go into the forest and have this come at me through every single one of my senses was overwhelming, particularly the first time."

- 24/01/2017Nice metaphor, nice read.What Kind Of A Person Are You? by Tyler Perry « Rebuild Life Nowrebuildlifenow.com
Comments24/01/2017 #1 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI like the metaphor as well @Sara Jacobovici. The author Tyler Perry could expand on it. For example, relating to leaves the author wrote "LEAF PEOPLE
Some people come into your life and they are like leaves on a tree. They are only there for a season. You can’t depend on them or count on them because they are weak and only there to give you shade". One idea is some people change color depending on the "season". Some leaves are sharp, narrow (narrow-minded people) and others are broad leaves. I could go on.

Comments16/10/2016 #9 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeDear @Sara Jacobovici thank-you for sharing a wonderful quote from Anne Michaels, " ....A forest shares a history, which each tree remembers even after it has been felled.” And we collectively have shared history, a shared present and a shared future. Places like beBee are helping us share those memories and collective create our future.16/10/2016 #8 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee#2 @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I am so happy you share both the scientific research that nature is a part of humans, therefore, are humans a part of nature, as well as the rich metaphors and images that you share that evoke new insights and sense-sights. (my new word - a sense sight when we sense and experience something, as distinct from thinking about something intellectually. I am playing with it at the moment to sense what happens!!16/10/2016 #7 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee#4 Dear @Sara Jacobovici - you mention our capacity to be self-reflective, such a critical skill to learn or re-learn if we have become to busy in doing, and not pausing in the moment to reflect, not just on what we just did, but what we have been experiencing in our selves and within our relationships with people and nature.16/10/2016 #6 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee#1 What a profound and beautiful quote @Chas Wyatt. "Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life, every fibre thrilling like harp strings, while incense is ever flowing from the balsam bells and leaves." and so are we, when is all of nature, that includes us, when we lean in and listen to both self and other.16/10/2016 #5 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI imagine as we shift the conversation to seeing and experiencing humans as an inter-connected part of nature, not above nature, that we will surprise ourselves with what new insights and sense-sights we discover. Love this to be a place where we share not only what we have discovered, but our questions, what we don't know, the tensions we are in the middle of, and allow the new growth to unfold, like new buds opening up in spring.15/10/2016 #4 Sara Jacobovici#2 Looking forward to reading your next work @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. You write, "When we study nature in fact we study us." This reminds me that we have the great capacity to be self-reflective, to ask why and to use these to learn about ourselves. How one dimensional would be the outcome of the learning be if we didn't study nature when we are learning about ourselves. Thank you for this important reminder Dr. Ali.15/10/2016 #3 Sara Jacobovici#1 Great quote @Chas Wyatt. This part went straight to my heart, "But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease. Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life, every fibre thrilling like harp strings, while incense is ever flowing from the balsam bells and leaves." Thanks again Chas.15/10/2016 #2 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeTelepathy again dear @Sara Jacobovici. Right now I am writing on if trees have feelings, senses and even memory like us then wi they have thoughts like humans> Would negative thinking affect trees as we humans do? Surprisingly yes.

Now, with the honor you bestow upon me by mentioning my name in this great buzz, I am baffled by your quality of thinking and relating. Yess, the tree rings reflect the quality of time and the environment surrounding the trees. Your linking the three parts of the tree with the three parts of the human body is amazingly relevant.

- 05/10/2016The Trees
by Franz Kafka
"For we are like tree trunks in the snow. In appearance they lie sleekly and a little push should be enough to set them rolling. No, it can't be done, for they are firmly wedded to the ground. But see, even that is only appearance."
Kafka's words are a powerful reminder to me that we live in the tension of strength and vulnerability, perception and reality. We can never rely on our perceptions as we look outward but can access our reality when we reach inward.

Agreed @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. Isaac Newton said in 1676 (following up on the writings of Bernard of Chartres.in the 12th century): "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." What I would like to add is that all giants stand with their feet planted firmly on the ground of nature, our foundation for any means of development and growth. We limit our potential if we cut ourselves off from the learning that nature has to offer us. Thank you Dr. Ali for being an important teacher.

Dear sister please read my buzz of today and it may help you in crystallizing out your thoughts. I am on a journey with you:
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/washing-out-old-beliefs-and-habits29/09/2016 #21 Mohammed SultanWhatever our joys ,they vanish with the crowd at the end of the day .Griefs don't vanish with the crowd,but in loneliness.Giants trees which escaped forests slaughtering and cleaning are a landmark and a sign of clear memories.They survived slaughtering because they were alone.We should also learn the same lesson ;to know when and how to isolate ourselves from the general movement of events in order to have a non-deceptive memory.Isolation from the current of events is a comfort zone for those who have a vision, patience and continuous self -monitoring to position themselves in the right direction.Giants trees are true masters and their value is in their scarcity and mystery.Their mysterious is the source of your inspiration DearAli Anani,PhD.29/09/2016 #19 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#18 I am truly amazed by your ingenuity dear sister @Irene Hackett. I started writing the buzz stating that even though I am alone in reality I am not. So, when you ask "Does a tree or a human thrive in isolation? This tree, alone in the desert may not have the company of other trees, but without other life forms to help pollinate, will its purpose be thwarted"? my response is no. An isolated tree can only survive by sensing its environment and responding to it. It could interact with birds, with ants by giving them a shelter so that the ants army may attack predators. Trees don't move, but they make others move for them. Humans are indifferent- but trees know better how to make senses of their senses. That is why I concur with you "As we connect more deeply with our 'inner universe' we develop that space that allows us to connect more fully in the 'outer universe' as we become aware of our 'oneness'. When I address you as my sister I do it proudly, dear Irene.28/09/2016 #16 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#14 You have a "hand" in this post dear @debasish majumder and you are in a way a co-author. I love the way that you described social responsibility in responsible terms. Yes, like a forest determines the quality of individual trees so are people in a social network or society or community. We need the individual and society members to strengthen each other so that both may grow healthily. Your addition is precious.28/09/2016 #15 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#13 Thank you @Aurorasa Sima for your enlightenment. Trees try to expand their growth potential first. For example, top leaves are smaller than the leaves below because they have more exposure to sunlight. We need to expand our limitations creatively before we indulge into competition. Trees that are alone in the desert may teach us a lot on how to do that.28/09/2016 #11 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#10 Thank you @Mark Anthony for writing a thoughtful comment.

Comments28/09/2016 #26 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#25 Dear sister @Irene Hackett- it is a paradox. I am writing about standstill tree while having caught severe cold and then your comment warms me up and runs my water. Yes, we can go beyond our limitations and this is the core message of this buzz. Acceptance of our limitations creates creative thinking and yields to the production of fruity ideas such as yours.28/09/2016 #21 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#19 The expected quality of comment from @Mohammed Sultan and you never fail to deliver high quality fruity comments. I like so much your attention to "the idea we stick in our customers mind about our fruits(products) can pull them or move them to the store shelves to pick these fruits.This's the " idea pull" on which the concept of our ads is built". Amazing how you summarized my recent buzzes with such depth and interconnections.28/09/2016 #19 Mohammed SultanDear Ali Anani,PhD.Your ideas can take us everywhere and even can change the equilibrium of our minds.Trees don't move but produce fruits that provide us with the energy required to make us move.Some fruits, as well as,ideas are more preferable than others although they are irrigated by the same source ,the same water, and the same source of knowledge.Trees are like organizations can diversify organically either vertically or horizontally,change their leaves and businesses, but also keep their roots intact.The idea we stick in our customers mind about our fruits(products) can pull them or move them to the store shelves to pick these fruits.This's the " idea pull" on which the concept of our ads is built.Whether our advertising ideas are enough to do the job or not,we always go back to our pipelines of ideas to find a new one,and then run with it to the market.Our innovation process also starts with an idea that can move us everywhere and even can change our strategic equilibrium.27/09/2016 #10 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#7 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- Because we can propel ourselves across space, we often forget that movement takes place on so many different levels. What could i add? I think we need to collect your wisdom and fill it have A Jar of Wisdom by @Sara Jacobovici. Thank you and I agree fully that movement may be intangible sometimes.27/09/2016 #8 AnonymousThank you @Sara Jacobovici for your relevant and consistent comment, I am fully agree. The brain is converging to the quantum and cognitive limit, both sensorily sensitive in each of the principal quantum modes of interaction and possessing generalized sensory processing capabilities arising from edge of chaotic dynamics and quantum electro-physiology, understood in the perception of its existential dilemma to move on...Maybe ;) #527/09/2016 #7 Sara JacoboviciPart 2/2 You're right @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee when you advise us to learn from trees when things seem not to be moving. Because we can propel ourselves across space, we often forget that movement takes place on so many different levels. And, as you say, trees have much to teach us. They may not be able to propel themselves across space but there is constant movement in their growth and development and in their dynamic and intricate dance with nature. There is much to learn from how we move in stillness.
Vibrations are the signals of life forms; they are movements and only become sounds when they can be "heard".
Finally, I am always amazed by the fact that the same area of the brain that gives us signals to move our muscles is also the area that allows us to experience emotion and so we use the words "being moved" when describing something that we feel deeply. In this way, movement does not need to take place exclusively on a physical level. But there is no doubt how important emotions are to help us move, react, respond, engage and so on. And no doubt how important a physical movement is to enable us to shift or get out of an emotional stuck place.
Dr. Ali, I wish you a quick recovery. Feel well soon and thank you for the bottom of my heart.27/09/2016 #6 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeBefore reading Part2 I am already overwhelmed by Part 1 dear @Sara Jacobovici. Just reading this extract from your comment "They know what they are doing, where and how. Nature is working with them and when things happen in nature to challenge them, they either adapt or are overcome by nature's ways. The trees not being able to move would only be a handicap if it prevented them from being trees" I feel satisfied and even healed. I fail to express myself and the degree to which I am happy with your sound comment.27/09/2016 #5 Sara JacoboviciPart 1/2 You moved me in many ways @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I will focus on just a couple for now. First, by the sheer fact that in spite of your cold you can continue to not only produce such great work but to incorporate your experience into the work. Second, I am moved by the following: "One image can move the world. Produce that image and you shall find the world moving for you."
Your Buzzes always make me think and there are a few things I thought of in my first reading. Maybe I'm just paying too much attention to words but the word limitations is not what I experience when I think of trees not moving from place to place. I can't imagine that trees experience this as a limitation. I imagine that for trees this is their reality, completely. Why would they want to move? They know what they are doing, where and how. Nature is working with them and when things happen in nature to challenge them, they either adapt or are overcome by nature's ways. The trees not being able to move would only be a handicap if it prevented them from being trees. As a business woman, if I know who I am, what I am doing, where and how, I am not limited or handicapped. The difference between trees and humans is that in being human I work with what I have or adapt. But if the conditions or situation becomes too much for me to handle, I have the ability to "move" on. If I don't, the limitations are self-imposed. As Viktor Frankl says, "When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." A human option that trees don't have.

Close27/09/2016 #36 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorNoting that I am a bit late in appreciating this post, I find both the article and the comments well worth my find. Trees are amazing in displaying their majestic dignity. They continue to grow unless there is an unexpected catastrophic event. Even so, they have the ability to make a comeback. I wish this was more prevalent in humans, however, we seem to put tangibles above intangibles thus creating a false sense of neediness. The need for "keep up with Joneses" has created a greedy society and with the decline in jobs, we're grasping for solutions. It seems we can't see the forest for the trees because our approach is a one-way street.
I am not one to listen or read the news. I would rather sit on my back porch, sip my coffee and appreciate the trees. We shouldn't fret about what we can't control and to be honest, I am not very successful with this. So, like @Deb 🐝 Helfrich, I live in a vacuum when it comes to the news media.
I agree with @Irene Hackett that the pendulum has swung too wide and I believe it will take time and patience to experience a true sense of balance in our lives.26/09/2016 #32 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWe are contributing to the demise of our own species by setting up organizations that only value the super-human among us.#31 #28 #27 A simple look at the vast unemployment statistics while companies all seek perfect specimens of candidates who have already done exactly what the company uniquely requires. That we have let the very dignified goal of seeking work become devoid of dignity is very telling about why we have so many societal problems.26/09/2016 #28 Sara Jacobovici#26 If the Industrialized Revolution influenced education and healthcare in becoming factories of mass production, then agreed @Irene Hackett, speed is now the determining factor of decision making. As you say, "It may be that the very 'foundation' of some of today's Corporate structures are built to be "short sited". "Time is money" is probably the marriage of these two eras; industry and speed.26/09/2016 #27 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#26 This is great thinking and a worthy idea dear @Irene Hackett. Th fastness of change don't give enough time gelly ideas to solidify. Te fears of nw competition, substitute products and technology are among the reasons. However; people need some to familiarize themselves and adopt a new technology. What would happen if a new product is substituted before due time? Are these negative emotions build up?25/09/2016 #24 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#23 Nope, I am completely in a vacuum when it come to the news media. I would rather invest my time in actual communications rather than being force fed doom and gloom. But it is unsurprising to me that corporations are toppling based on their short-sitedness. As you so eloquently point out in this buzz, nothing can simply grow unfethered into the sky without paying firm attention to the growth of the foundation as well.25/09/2016 #23 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#22 I wonder if you are hinting in any way to the Soros leaked emails affair @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. I was n't even aware of this issue when I wrote the buzz. But I am fully aware and in agreement with your conclusion- it is time to go back to organic growth and I see no alternative.25/09/2016 #22 Deb 🐝 Helfrich"Can we then "play" with the spacetime of growth? " Wow. We do need to learn how to incorporate a way of diverting primary growth into secondary growth. This is the exact problem we now face with the power of corporations who are locked into a 90 day earnings cycle and the very progress of our world is hijacked by this exceedingly detrimental construct that resembles sustainable, organic growth in almost no way.25/09/2016 #19 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#18 I love symbiotic relationship. each party is enriched and strengthened by the other. This is how I view my relationship with you dear sister @Irene Hackett. You are the nectar and I am the bee- only together we may produce honey. So, did I miss you and all my friends here? In fact I had no choice but to miss you.25/09/2016 #15 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#13 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- I am moved without restriction by your two comments. You wrote "You reign supremely in your ability to incorporate the “laws of nature” and apply them wisely to our human needs in growing our businesses". As a firm believer in collective minds and actions, I assure you that I don't reign alone and I find next to me @Sara Jacobovici and other great minds. Your comment simply reads my mind. I shall leak the idea of my next buzz to prove how we don't work in isolation. I have outlined in my mind before reading your valuable comment the main ideas of my next buzz. The title (which may change) is Trees Don't Move", but i spite of this simple facts they developed great strategies to deal with this issue. Free movement such as molecules of gazes may go chaotic. Freezing movement might turn us "motionless", except for localized vibrations. We freeze because of fear, but trees have solutions. Reading your comment adds tremendously to my thinking. Trees don't move, but make moving bodies work for them. Restriction of movement serves many noble purposes. I am thriving and encouraged by your reflections dear Sara and I see the whole spectrum for your layered comments and qualifiers serve in illuminating our minds.25/09/2016 #14 Sara JacoboviciPart 2/2 As someone who refers to herself as an integrator, I welcome your statement, “…the act of integrating other infrastructures and assets.” Another aspect of not working in isolation (whether it’s people or methods) is not compartmentalizing and separating. If we see each tree as a unit separate from the others, we can never appreciate or understand the workings of the forest.
Finally, “Trees don't forget that vertical growth needs support from strong roots and stems.” Trees/nature “knows” what to do and is focused on doing it. It doesn’t get distracted and “forget”. In this way, we need to stay “on course” and focused; not forget what we are trying to achieve.25/09/2016 #13 Sara JacoboviciPart 1/2 @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, you have created many layers with many different depths and your light reflects up to the surface from that depth. No doubt about it. You reign supremely in your ability to incorporate the “laws of nature” and apply them wisely to our human needs in growing our businesses. I cannot begin to address all those layers. I will touch briefly on a few that stand out for me at this time.
You write, “…the value of collective movement in growing.” This should be in every mission statement, business plan and vision of all businesses. We wonder why we get stuck after all the movement we invested in, only not to realize that the movement was taking place in isolation.
Things become interesting when you write, “Restriction doesn't mean ugliness…” Agreed. We often give a negative connotation to something “less than”. Whereas restriction, in this case, relates to “what is needed”. In this way, if we look at needs first, then we can properly measure degree of movement. The interesting piece is when you continue and write, “Beauty lies in restricted movement and vibrations.” Here you add a qualifier to your statement above about movement; not just collective, but measured as well. Doing it alone and in a “big” way does not equal success. The interesting part continues when you look at the word “vibrations”. Could the vibrations be a way of assessing the growth; what type of vibrations occurred and how they “moved” across the environment in terms of impact and outcome, quality and quantity?25/09/2016 #12 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#11 Thank you dear @debasish majumder for your unlimited support and understanding. Yes, social structure can be supportive or discouraging, the least to say, to the healthy growth of any society. We need to compromise as individuals to gain and build functionally beautiful and working social structures. Only me attitude can be very destructive.

The shapes of natural trees with their branches are fractal-like and self-similar in pattern. This mathematical tree is also a self-similar tree with branches scaling according to the golden ratio ► Φ.
Comments14/09/2016 #2 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#1 Beautiful golden ratios @Lada 🏡 Prkic- are these your calculations because I haven't seen such depth of showing fractal trees. The edges look like those of Sierpinski triangle . Leaves that look like snowflakes. I wonder then how the ambassdor tree would look like!

Comments12/09/2016 #40 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#1 I have to agree, Irene. I think trees are not fearful in the ways in which we might super-impose human fear, which is a cognitive process, in many cases around things that may happen but ultimately do not. Trees respond only to what is.
But they do have stored memories of challenging times stored in their rings, as we store memories of hurt and wounds that reoccur when similar sensations confront us in our daily lives. I wonder if trees learn how to meet environmental challenges like drought conditions by being able to consult their rings and take a similar action to the course that saw them through a previous season?
Ali, I shall be waiting impatiently for your treatise elucidating upon this profound question: "I wish to discover in more depth the relationship between types of trees and types of love."12/09/2016 #34 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMASuch a perfect statement of our lives, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee - "The trees have many stories to tell. Their conflicts, their strategies to cope with challenges, their self-healing, their pride, their longevity and long experiences and their coexistence provide golden opportunities to learn more from them." And we can learn from each.12/09/2016 #33 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#32 I published the buzz dear @namita sinha
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/trees-don-t-produce-honey12/09/2016 #32 namita sinha#31 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee , all my best wishes to you for this forthcoming post then - ;which shall be as sweet and stimulating as Honey, I am sure ! And please do not avoid any wandering either, because the variety of precious gems like ideas that lie " scattered as roses ", sometimes along the various detours only help further towards the wonderful posts that only a creative genius as you can weave for all of us to absorb !12/09/2016 #30 namita sinha#28 @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee another enlightening perspective from you when you mention w.r.f to the colours of leaves, that what we absorb and what we reflect might be different. So profound... Yes, I I am sure we shall have more to discuss and look forward to it :)12/09/2016 #29 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#24 Dear @namita sinha- I agree fully. I am glad you are so involved and that we are giving this topic due attention. I like your point that trees experience different types of growth, if not to get taller then to get broader. Growth in different directions. I fully endorse your reference to the comment of dear @Sara Jacobovici. I am sure we shall have much more to discuss along the way.12/09/2016 #28 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#23 Dropping leaves and dropping habits. Even though leaves change color and are the centers for photosynthesis they drop. We need to drop all bad habits, our focus on the past, not-accepting change as you mentioned and selfishness. Leaves have different colors from the colors they absorb and the colors they reflect are not the colors they absorb. We need to absorb and that we we reflect to the world might be of different colors. Variety is the spice of life and trees exhibit this variety beautifully as as lovely your personality is dear @namita sinha12/09/2016 #24 namita sinha@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee This almost makes them immortal and beyond the fears old age or dimnishing vibrance. This is essentially also about once having discovered your WHY, the HOW of survival and growth comes very naturally.I see us learning the genuine growth mindset from trees.
I completely embrace here what @Sara Jacobovici quoted as mentioned in your post ,"Only awareness, a conscious understanding of what we are doing and exploring the why, will lead to change".
Most people think that once trees reach a certain height, they just stop growing (or at least slow down). But an international study has revealed that this is false. Once trees reach a certain height, they do stop getting taller.However, their growth rate increases continuously ,they continue to get wider — packing on more and more mass the older they get.
Let’s learn from the trees -We should keep growing !
After all, "Life is all about what we can still Grow, and not so much about what all we have to let go "12/09/2016 #23 namita sinha@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Yes, so I wish to notice here how the trees never cling to their leaves, they allow the fall to take away the dead and give place to the new, nor do they fear the falling fruits and flowers, but are always excited to blossom the new ! How lovely and liberating it is to let go what no longer serves. This could be a profound learning in battling any kind of fear - to embrace change and be open to try the excitement of the new ! In their stillness, as if having found and being aware of their purpose , they are deep rooted and fixed to their vision and their values . They are supremely capable of developing mechanisms of growth and development for ever - the essential "plasticity" of life , of their own being.12/09/2016 #22 namita sinha@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee You say, "Trees represent life with all its challenges and consequences."
Yes, indeed they do and I love how you further conclude - The trees have many stories to tell. Their conflicts, their strategies to cope with challenges, their self-healing, their pride, their longevity and long experiences and their coexistence provide golden opportunities to learn more from them"
I’ve always been in awe of trees, myself ! Trees are amazing—both in how large and in how old they can be.11/09/2016 #20 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#19 Yes, spot on is your comment @Pamela 🐝 Williams and the earthy network is true. You do refer to one of my intended future buzzes on how trees communicate and we communicate and behave. I fully agree with the fullness of your comment. I am sure @Sara Jacobovici will have more to say.
