    #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.

    @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 L. 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".

    Also check out https://www.bebee.com/producer/@jaredwiese/how-daily-questions-create-a-quality-life for more "pause time" to reflect and recharge - daily.

    @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

    #1 What a profound and beautiful quote @Chas Wyatt.

    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.

    #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.

    Telepathy 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. When we study nature in fact we study us. The new research findings are consistent with this claim. Trees and nature are part of us. Proudly sharing this buzz

    "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.

    People have written much about trees (Joyce Kilmer, @Ali Anani...)

    For me, trees anchor me to nature, to a world that is bigger than I.

    This is my favourite tree in the town where I live. If you look close, you can see the picnic table under its mighty canopy.

    "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.

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. What to say more? I am honored that a buzz of mine has a linkage to this post, which I shared on three hives very proudly.

    The 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.

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.

    The lonely wisdom of new Start Up's is to find themselves a market niche when they can't compete head-on with a well established company.When the marketplace becomes like a forest,it's not wise to compete head-on with a giant tree .Find yourself a niche and protect it by a fence, a barrier to other new entries too.The best Start Up may be that one operating on the periphery of a forest.If a Start Up positively differentiates itself from the others,then people will travel long distances out of their way to find it and to enjoy its shadow.Thanks my dear Dr .Ali for stretching my thinking that reflects the same market feeling.

    Interesting @Ali Anani...my own thoughts on this may differ a bit from your own. People should be involved with or impact positively on each other, thus being alone, even on the edge would be a somewhat self imposed isolation. One should however, learn to enjoy aloneness can bring for some periods, just like your four hundred year old tree - its habitat has determined its survival depends on being able to live alone.

    Whatever 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.

    #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.

    First, let's clarify something my dear brother @Ali Anani - you could never bore us! This is another lovely and thought provoking buzz of great depth which is so satisfying to the reader to ponder! I love Einstein's quote and it resonates. To "walk alone" however, in this quote may be more of a mindset of nonconforming rather than the physical state of BEING alone. I find I have many more questions than additional comments after contemplating the ideas expressed here. To be alone as a lifestyle or to be alone on occasion? 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? I agree whole-heartedly with your conclusion. Perhaps to connect to our 'inner universe' is to be alone. 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'.

It is interesting this idea of movement that is not associated with a phisical shift - I find the key concept to be 'shift'.

    #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.

    Dear 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.

    Part 2/2 You're right @Ali Anani 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.

    Different Facets of Growth

    @Franci Eugenia Hoffman - I am glad you shared in this discussion; I know your appreciation of trees. Great phrase, "putting tangibles above intangibles" - a precise way to describe the way cultural conditioning leads us to cling to external solutions to resolve inner longing. There must be a conscious awakening if we are to make a positive shift.

    Noting 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.

    We 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.

    #28 yes @Sara Jacobovici - "time is money", this is the pervasive mantra - and it may be creating more than wealth. It may be creating a particular social anxiety, a super 'rat race', a never ending cycle of performance- acceptance, "what have you done for me lately". The human condition mostly ignored.

    #27 The demands on employees to adapt are aggressive @@Ali Anani. Basically, if one is unable to adapt - they're 'out'! Person to person training is practically non-existent. Many hard-working people who require more time to adapt are not naturally inclined to thrive in such environments. Negative emotions? I think the political landscape reflects the results.

    #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.

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?

    Neither am I a news watcher @Deb Helfrich and @Ali Anani. I find its negative bend quite disturbing. As we know, public corporation is seen by investors as an investment tool. Nothing new there, however what is new in the past 30 years is the speed in which transactions are completed. With the growth of technology, business transactions - including sales of entire companies - are not unlike the 'flipping' of houses. The turn around is unbelievably fast to put it mildly. It is not like it once was, where businesses were built for the long-term, to create jobs and build communities. It may be that the very 'foundation' of some of today's Corporate structures are built to be "short sited"??

    #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.

    #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.
