"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 look forward to your joining me on this challenging journey."

    @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."

    And I found this article as I created "the Senses Daily" newspaper, which picks up articles on the senses for me every day! https://paper.li/deborahlange/1490591052#/

    #2 @Sara Jacobovici- normally people classify trees as leaves, trunks and roots. They consider branches as shoots of the trunk. That is to my best knowledge.

    #1 So glad to see you expanding on the metaphor @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. In the comment I left for the author describing my interest in the article, I did ask the question why leaves, branches and roots but no mention of the trunk.
    Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
    24/01/2017 #1 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
    I 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.

    Neither fires or earthquakes have altered this amazing tree. Just a quiet life in a California forest for all these years. Not every tree has a nickname, but 'The President' has earned it. This giant sequoia stands at 247 feet tall & is estimated to be over 3,200 years old. Imagine, this tree was already 700 years old during the height of ancient Greece's civilization and 1200 years old when Rome was well into its rule of most of the western world and points beyond. The trunk of The President measures at 27 feet across, with 2 billion needles From base to top. Because of its unbelievable size, this tree has never been photographed in its entirety, until now. National Geographic photographers have worked along with scientists to create the first photo that shows the President in all its glory. They had to Climb the tree with pulleys and levers, and took thousands of photos. Of those, they selected 126 and stitched them together to get this incredible portrait of the President.

    @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc., this story has a special relevance to me. Once during my vagabond days and ways, I stayed in a hollowed out Redwood in Northern California. It gave me shelter from the storm.

    I've been to Redwood
    I crossed the ocean for a heart of gold.

    #11 Thank you @Savvy Raj for the invitation to follow up on these brilliant discussions. I loved the quote of @Mohammed Sultan "" Change your opinions ,keep to your principals , change your leaves keep intact your roots". This quote is brilliant even though some trees may change the functions of their roots to allow them to store nutrients. I find these discussions highly illuminating and together with those more than 55 comments on my last buzz I find that both discussions are extremely rewarding. I wish we could compile the comments here and there to get a better perspective.

    "It has been said that trees are imperfect men, and seem to bemoan their imprisonment rooted in the ground. But they never seem so to me. I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!" ~John Muir, July 1890.

    #8 I walk. When faced with a dilemma of any kind, if I walk, I'll develop a solution. At my different jobs they had to learn that when they see Pam walking down the hall (ignoring anyone she passes) or outside, leave her alone because when she comes back...eureka! :-) One time I never made it out of my office before I did an immediate about face, it was so quick the team's new assistant thought I had lost my mind.

    @Paul Kearley🐝, it sounds like you and @Laura Mikolaitis have a lot in common in terms of running to clear your head. I'm not a runner, but I find that if I take a vigorous hike, I can stop my gerbil-mind from spinning for a little while and figure out my next steps. Of course, sometimes you have to give yourself a little time to be frustrated, sad, angry, before you can move on to action and problem-solving. Great reminder here. Close

    #6 @Pamela 🐝 Williams yes, I had heard that. Funny thing, as long as I can remember, whenever I feel out of sorts, I find an old tree (preferably a pine) and I put my whole back against it including the back of my head and I meditate, feeling the strength of the tree and I just listen. I am amazed at some of the ideas I have taken from this meditation/listening time. Yeah, I know. weird. But, for me, it seems to work.

    Paul, know when to say when was the hardest lesson for me to learn. An interesting note about trees. For a long time scientists believed trees were stand-alone, self reliant. It's only been more recently that they've learned that plants have what you might call an Internet in which the cables are actually a fungus that grows on the roots and through this fungus the trees are communicating with other plants. A literal plant communication network that tells the trees when something is amiss and allows the tree to react accordingly. Nothing lives, works, or just exists in isolation. It's when we think we do that we stop listening to the signals telling us something is amiss. That is when those heavy, hard objects come flying at us! You might say the fungus among us is trying to tell us to chill out!

    Awesome post, Paul!

    "I had even put off going for my daily runs, which usually helped me to clear my head and put things in perspective."
    See, you KNEW better - and your body finally made you get moving to realize it ;)


    So many parallels here. As such, am sharing to the following hives as in the order of your discovery:
    - The Miracle morning (https://www.bebee.com/group/themiraclemorning) for the routine of exercising daily to clear yourself in so many ways,
    - Eckhart Tolle (Eckhart Tolle) for the Power of Now and using stillness to connect with nature, and
    - Habits of Highly Effective People (https://www.bebee.com/group/habits-of-highly-effective-people) for Covey's paradigm shifts of proactivity and "Circle of Influence".

    @Paul Kearley🐝, this is a truly inspiring post and one that I can relate to. I've descended into that abyss on more than one occasion and if it not for the nudge of my husband telling me to "go for a run" and the winds of nature accepting me with open arms, it would have been much more difficult to climb out. I've learned (and believe I am a work in progress) that we all need those moments of reassessing where we are at the present moment. I believe that when we fall into that abyss it is so that when we finally climb out, we climb out stronger and with new perspective. Kudos to you for recognizing and accepting the opportunity to start again. We need the reset button from time to time. As for viewing problems as challenges, I couldn't agree more. It makes all the difference in how we approach them.

    I didn't get past the first paragraph Paul before I nailed you as a fellow introvert. I recognize those emotions and thankfully, like yours, my wife knows when I need to recharge the emotional batteries with some alone time. Your epiphany was important... perspective of facts, not emotions, is how you need to frame things.

    In the meantime, while you are practicing your newfound wisdom, perhaps you could order one of these shirts. https://www.lookhuman.com/design/57638-sorry-i-cant-right-now-im-busy-introverting?aff_sub=TnL5HPStwNw

    #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.

    I 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.

    "Clouds at noon occupying about half the sky gave half an hour of heavy rain to wash one of the cleanest landscapes in the world. How well it is washed!... How fresh the woods are and calm after the last films of clouds have been wiped from the sky! A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. 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. No wonder the hills and groves were God’s first temples, and the more they are cut down and hewn into cathedrals and churches, the farther off and dimmer seems the Lord himself." ~John Muir, 1869 July 24th.
