    #34 @Louise Smith Your doing a wonderful job helping people express their purpose by themselves. Something I will be doing as a part of my journey.
    @Chas ✌️ Wyatt is so unique and is a wonderful great bee I'm super proud to share some traits with him.
    Thank you the link to Phils buzz will head there to read it. The support i have from you bees will make me move mountains.

    #13 This is such a beautiful compliment from @Chas ✌️ Wyatt
    "you may not write often (a trait we share), but, when you do, you do so with a sense of purpose.
    You may be swimming against the current, but, you certainly are not drowning. "

    There is also a lot of insight.
    You can choose what you want and when you swim against the current towards your goal.
    You can choose the time when you can do this with a sense of purpose.
    If you take your time, breathe, relax and swim diagonally, it may take longer than you expect
    but you will not drown !

    As a psychologist, I see many clients without purpose and clients in addiction to avoid having to deal with this concept as has already been mentioned. I ask each client to write down their short, mid and long term goals even if they can only identify 1 for each category. Early on in my career, I was stunned one day when a client said they couldn't do that as they had no goals. I let that pass and talked with the client and during the appointment from what the client told me,
    I wrote out their set of goals. At the end, I gave them the list. It was the client's turn to be stunned. The client had goals but struggled with the abstract concept of what goals and purpose actually were.The client had imagined a complicated esoteric task when in fact it was quite the opposite.
    Another interesting part of the process for the client was the novelty of being able to choose to themselves what they wanted rather than what others, work, family and life had previously dictated. SO a very important part of the process is the liberation of the client from perceived restrictions and learning to tolerate ambiguity, discomfort and freedom to be whatever they choose.

    Great buzz. When I in my late thirties, I understood my purpose in my life. Yet, what I love about beBee, is I don't have to do it alone. I love teamwork and inspiration. When I was younger I felt it was cowardly to ask for help, so I tried to do everything in life alone. I was more scared to ask for help and join a team than I was to face my challenge alone and fail. I know that doesn't make sense, but that was my ego back than.
    beBee is a great place of inspiration to keep going and great library of information.

    I don't think anyone should talk about humanity if imagination is not a compass in that being. It is easier to occupy the relationship between inhumanity and darkness than to enlighten our own minds with life creating imagination.

    Distraction works both ways it can free imagination to move towards the power of imagination or it can darken the imagination until we are imagining our own fears.

    Imagination is a powerful force to create the humanity we aspire or imagine the worst - imagination is best a being that informs us what is inhumanity is in order to brighten us to recognize humanity. As a force imagination is a light we can cultivate or a darkness we can surrender to and so humanity should be the chief compass point of our imagination.

    #13 Dear Sue, saved the PDF to a bit.ly link here http://bit.ly/2uD9u8u that is a pretty tough road that you emerged from and consequently evolved.

    My life has been unusually blessed but also significantly protected and where there was a rebel spirit but tempered greatly to steer me down safer paths and that credit does not belong to me but my parents. What I learned growing up was that the family network was the highest value and freedoms that other people take as a given are one's that I am willing to trade but in that communal setting to find a space which was my own is more challenging - where the extent of my shared space is phenomenal.

    What is different now is that in the current time there is no desire to achieve, so eliminating that as a social and local pressure is something good, because where there is no answer to the question "what do you want to do" in terms of defined purpose, that moment in our existence should bring us back to our fundamental nature, but it strangely does not. Instead the social and cultural edict is always at play and this edict translates everything from work as the center of meaning.

    Translating home as the center of meaning is not anywhere obvious as I would have thought it could be, simply because society looks at us from the work we do rather than the space we create. When we create the space that is us, we become home, we become work and from within us those spaces enlarge as us.

    This article was especially interesting to me, my friend, because "Office Space" is one of my wife's all-time favorite movies and I've watched it many times. Many people relate to the characters and the useless TPS reports. I especially related to it because hypnosis is my specialty. I hear new clients ask me what would happen if I died during the session and then they refer to this movie. What I want to make you aware of is the state Peter Gibbons is shown to be in; one that is focused, calm, and introspective, can be achieved in many ways. When people allow themselves to turn off all the "noise" and look inward, amazing things happen. Some do this through meditation and mindfulness. Others take months, or years, of self-reflection to discover who they really are and what is really important. My clients take the shortcut, like Peter Gibbons, and use hypnosis. I know something amazing will emerge from you during this journey you're on. Now, close your eyes and begin counting backward from 100...

    #5 The great thing about Jim is he has this new partnership with Bulletproof and his partner Charlene Norman is someone I ironically know very well having met 6 years ago. Having read his recent buzzes I know Jim is in a very good place now, I would say keep the Whiskey Bible closed and keep the Bulletproof fully open. I know when people have found a sweetspot in their life, it starts showing through in their words, their enthusiasm and their focus. The Whisky Bible also may well have been written in Japanese for me because I am the biggest teetotaler of all time, coca-cola or pepsi is the limit to my "hard drinks".

    13/08/2017 #11 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    #7 Pascal you have mentioned what I was thinking out in Structure and Space. Space is what we are and structure is what we build. If we think life is an ongoing economic pursuit about structure, the only structure that kind of life is, is a prison. What is the difference between paid work and unpaid work other than one finances a bigger structure through the former than the latter.

    I was never happy doing the TN1 visa thing, the hassles of flying, the staying in hotels, the meetings in boardrooms and the expensive restaurant lunches with clients (where I never get to actually enjoy what I order and never get to say what it is I really think) and that comes with structure. It is a different thing altogether if we don't have a choice in the matter, but that is not the case now. Years of my life have flown by in this same kind of groundhog day experience.

    Imagine me having to update my LinkedIn status with the words "I don't give a shit", we can never say that as a LinkedIn status because our bondage is what others think of us, and that reputation status is called our personal brand, do you dig now why I have begun to hate that word - a condition for prisoners of it.

    For sure it is great luxury not to give a shit about engaging work for the sake of work, but that luxury was not created today, it was invested and earned through structure, and when we HAVE TO work we are actually taking a break from life, that is the most stupid irony of all - it is so ironic that having a temporary reprieve from obligation is considered taking a break - no this is life and now I am going to think about how to have this and get paid to have it and how that life is sustainable for a period of three decades. Space is what we are, structure is what we think we are.

    #8 Lisa, if we are not doing what we love then work is the interruption in our lives. I don't see me taking a break from work but more about this time being how I will break in work that will satisfy me for the rest of my life and that could touchwood be three more decades after this one. The last thing I want to do is figure this out, instead what is written here is a self-organizing process where the mindset is about emergence. That is a different mindset to the planned existence where we are more likely to see life as getting our ducks in a row. There is an additional mindset which puzzles me which is those people who think too much about how much runway our life has left. The only guarantee that life gives us is knowing we are going to attend funerals of people much younger than us and there is no point in worrying about things which are completely out of left-field, instead life I think is better as possibilities rather than probabilities.

    IMHO, deciding to not having a definitive plan is a calling that it is time to take a break from your current state of mind. Like @Dean Owen said, taking time off can do wonders for your life. Embrace this feeling as there is a reason for it.

    #1 @Dean Owen I used to use the term "learning journey" but earlier this month @Jim Murray wrote a buzz about why he thinks it is lame to use the expression "learning journey" and when I thought about it, I knew he was right. It is not a journey, so I shifted or pivoted or whatever that change is called and I am now referring to "Learning Pathway" - so Learning Pathway 56 means I am 56 years old on this particular pathway.

    Now there are only two pathways - the first is the complex header picture above that is titled "Renaissance" currently numbered Release #54 and the pyramid that serves the latest "Paradox Wisdom" currently 27th which is found here https://www.bebee.com/producer/@cityvp/non-verbal-life are the "Learning Pathways". When I go to my earlier Renaissance or Wisdom Hive pathways I find my earlier pathways. So it is not a fixed definition or model, but an evolving picture based on trial and error, serious play and personal definition.

    My two principle learning spaces are online and offline. beBee happens to be the current hub of that online learning space and this is where principally I have moved my two pathways. I have 15 elements which transcribe to 15 hives and fortunately I got in early enough at bebee to be able to name all 15 hives with their respective colour.

    the other 14 colours are white, black, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, magenta, bronze, gold, cyan & crimson
    There are other hives I have for additional purposes but the these are the 15 core pathways for my learning.

    Space does wonders for your life. I firmly believe that. Which is why I took a year off when I was thirty, and again forty, and again 48. You have been a good father for 20 odd years, but more than that, perhaps your calling was and is to be a father and mentor. There is a reason the space bar occupies the largest real estate on our keyboards. We use it between words. But never forget you have not yet finished your sentence so don't get trapped and make this your last space.

    It allows our senses to mingle with the feel-good factor which we otherwise have forgotten about it's existence. That feel-good factor gives a huge high to our confidence and the feeling of that joy is indescribable. Even me being a creative person I love playing with resources available. One of the instance which I could remember is of an auspicious night where my brother bought a huge basket of lillies to decorate our house. Majority went with a string but I with my creative energy took the matter in my hand by decorating it in a unique way. I tried highlighting the shape and size of those exquisite and fragrant beings with the help of sellotape.

    You helped me unleash my creative juices where I sometimes try my level best to hide from others. Thanks for this wonderful gift, @Anel Marx

    #6 Failure is normal Lisa until that is we make it abnormal through personal branding and social judgement. The key part that I focus on from Anel's comment is trial and error, process shapes end result therefore trust the process, also as she says the moments that surprise us and thus being more open to this surprise and delight. I too enjoy the learning that comes from failure and I really do like most of all Anel's closing - progress not perfection. In a world that is tailor made for prejudice, creativity is the get out of social jail card and failure is also a great friend of creative response. We should not separate success and failure unless our desire is to live an abnormal existence, outside of that abnormality we will point failure as abnormal, but inside of us is where this abnormal existence becomes abnormal. It is our own soul that knows what is whole and what has become cultural prejudice.

    If there is not a renaissance in humanity with the promise of what may well have been a mythical "golden age", the renaissance in craft is huge, it is here and this buzz is exemplary of it. What matters here above the elements of creativity is the re-emergence of craft, that was particularly curtailed by the industrial age. This craft is detailed here as a personal story and it is also prevalent in the rise of D.I.Y. practices. Today it is expanding with the arrival of sexy new technologies like 3D Printing, but the essence of it is the same energy and purpose described by Anel Marx. Beyond what gets shared at Pinterest, there is digital scaling of craft through places like Etsy https://www.fastcodesign.com/3042352/how-one-knitter-makes-almost-1-million-a-year-on-etsy

    While one might not see the connection between sowing and hand-crafts and 3D printing, the bigger connection of this craft revival (helped also by instructional videos on you-tube) is the rise of the "maker movement" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brit-morin/what-is-the-maker-movemen_b_3201977.html and once people are a part of this maker culture, they can combine resources and scale.

    This element of creativity is one of the most positive effects of the rise of the Internet, and to keep focusing on what we have lost through internet and mobile communications, does a great disservice to those whose value now can be seen as they share their love of crafts, as is being shared here and recognizing that as the fastco article shows, this is not just a hobby anymore, it is a whole community, as well as new paths manufacturing and the return of the hand as a symbol of being human. I love this as much as I detest the mentality of focusing only on personal brand. This should be what the greater spirit of beBee should be about.

    Butterfly's are such beautiful creatures. They also have so much they can teach us. Here are just a few lessons I wanted to touch on.
    Be patient. All good things come with time. We are growing, even when we cannot feel it. With great patience comes great rewards.
    Be open to change. Be willing to be transformed. Without change, nothing beautiful would happen. You have to give up who you are to become who you might be. Remember, they came from the caterpillar.
    Be spontaneous. Go wherever your wings take you. Fly forward with confidence. Have courage to seize opportunities.
    Be in the moment. Look around. Enjoy the flowers, the sun and the breeze. The present moment is a gift for us to enjoy. Busyness sometimes keeps us from enjoying what we already have and being thankful for what have already achieved.

    What an incredible picture. I had no idea that glass-wing butterflies exist in nature, now that I do, all I can say is WOW !

    I like the juxtaposition of the jewel and the butterfly, speaks out to the difference between value and wonder.

    I place wonder above value, though t is also true that the jewel actually represents the human condition as it often experienced by us, and the butterfly is as most of us would like life to be.

    What is the difference between value and wonder? It is how we most of us subscribe to material success rather than to life appreciation.

    Water has become a great product also with a placebo effect that markets great. One of the brand titles of a water I saw of Facebook I saw of a bottled was "Diet Water".
    It explained that with this product, a balanced diet, and exercise, you WILL lose weight.
    But, I am with @Juan Imaz, Drink water over Soda. Ten years ago, all I did was switch from drinking soda to water at work. In six months, I lost twenty pounds.

    I never purchase single-use plastic bottles of water: they are an environmental disaster: millions of tons of plastic ends up in the ocean each and every year!

    And, when I go to the gym, I bring my vacuum insulated aluminum water bottle with me. And I fill it with water from the tap -- Montreal has great tap water!

    From the article linked below:
    It is estimated that between four and 12m metric tonnes of plastic makes its way into the ocean each year. This figure is only likely to rise, and a 2016 report predicted that by 2050 the amount of plastic in the sea will outweigh the amount of fish.

    A normal plastic bottle takes about 450 years to break down completely, so the components of a bottle dropped in the ocean today could still be polluting the waters for our great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandchildren.

    A lot of plastic debris in the ocean breaks down into smaller pieces and is ingested by marine life, and it is thought that a significant amount sinks to the sea bed. But a lot of it just floats around, and thanks to sophisticated modelling of ocean currents using drifting buoys, we can see where much of it ends up.
    Time for a coffee!

    The one thing that needs to be added to this discussion about water is tap water. As privatization grows around the water supply, the net results have not always been good for communities, but an excellent boon for bottled water companies. Where the water system is considered a high societal value, we can progress in new fields of water development which includes new ways of developing fresh-water resource. That bottled water might reduce some soda sales is not the chief story, people will drink what they will drink and where there is prohibition, that usually serves to accelerate what is prohibited a.k.a. drinking alcohol. Tap water or the water that is coming to our home is the first priority, then increasing fresh-water supplies and then the profits of water companies and water bottlers. The fish rots from the head first and so if the higher level of water intelligence has less focus than the lower level of water intelligence, the net result is degradation of society, and without a market lost by that degradation, what is the point of talking sales if the market no longer has a market to sell to. The same goes to AI because robots don't drink :-)

    "All of this talk takes you away from being true to yourself. It leads you to live the life you think others want you to have"
    "Finally, having understanding and interests, we can join together in a common purpose".
    The above quotes from your buzz @Geoff Hudson-Searle say a lot. I am in total agreement with you. I wrote in few buzzes that a group without a common purpose isn't going to stick together. Purpose is the glue. Unless people find a common purpose to share they shall go in all directions. As @Sara Jacobovici wrote in her great buzz today "This side up fragile"
    and my comment in which we said "The paradox of self sense needing the sense of the community to achieve mine?
    We need to belong to a purpose.

    #29 Yes @Harvey Lloyd the humility of the short journey is the profound one, and even if we are clever with our words, we all end up in the same condition, food for maggots or dusty ash. I was fascinated to learn that in cremation the fire subjected to the dead body makes it curl up into a fetal position. Cremation is the practice of our tribe, but now I would like to break with that practice, at least through burial we are food for God's tiniest creatures. In the pristine world of loveliness and all things beautiful, maybe the maggots are the most honest creatures among us :-)

    #30 Harvey, loved reading your comments, especially 'response-able' As you know the true meaning of responsibility is response able or ability to respond. Whatever we may think, say, do, or feel – these are our responses for which we, and no one else, are responsible. This is easy to see but hard to live, for we have been taught to believe and think the opposite. So we don’t consciously choose our response, we react instead, and then we blame others for our reaction. No wonder we feel imprisoned by others and our circumstances. The enlightened, on the other hand, have broken the trend, they see the illusion. They take full responsibility for their response abilities and as a consequence, they always hold their own destiny in their own hands, because they have choice. It is my belief that we do have choice, and more importantly when we consider truth and love, in my opinion Truth and Love 'should' be unconditional to be true to oneself and to others. So glad you have enjoyed this tread, it certainly has been thought provoking!

    Sometimes the words "delusion" and "prison" manifest themselves as such upon being thought as such.

    If all is one, how is the resident and the prison separate? We limit ourselves to desires, limit our desires or define inflexible thresholds to our desires.. another form of limitation.

    Joining together in a common purpose and finding my own uniqueness are often labeled as conflicting by others .. so i aligned myself to the common universal idealistic goals. The conflicts disappeared, but so did the tangible outcomes which allow people to believe that a common purpose is being achieved. Soon doubt sets in with impatience.

    "Peace is the beauty of life". Maybe what we all seek as the common purpose can actually be presumed as the common ground to build upon. Maybe , a presumption is all it takes for somethings to manifest as such.

    Really enjoyed this buzz. Thanks

    Freedom of growth
    What very often is forgotten is a life's right called is freedom of growth. Through all kinds of human designed doctrines, limits and limitation is designed and implemented, all depending where one is been brought up, live and work. Factor of fact is that each person is growing and when in unique bond, like relationship, marriage, continuous to grow. Here lays the foundation of diversification. When people resent the freedom of growing by the one, one intents to think of reason to state why that growth, in any direction, is to be limited, prohibited even sabotaged.

    The 'growing person' is experiencing lot's of ill-will, envy, undesired effects of others while (s)he is doing no else than something entirely natural. Grow. Then choices usually are made to separate, which also is a natural, to continue growth.

    Love & Exclusivity
    There is Love, which is endless, or the love defined by people and made in different model and shape like the exclusive love for a partner, mother, father or the love of friendship. If one has Love according the endlessness like described anywhere, one simply Love's all, without reservation, without limitation.

    No Good, No Bad
    In essence the use of differentiating good/bad is a ill choice. There is no good, no bad, no right, no wrong. There is learning and experience in a way of choice. On the moment one is using the phrases good/bad, right/wrong, one is upholding, for whatever reasoning, doctrine, background, limitation to contain and to control.

    That is not what Life is all about. All we are, we have created from the past, how we evolved as human race, is the sum of ways that worked, regretfully also experiencing the ways that did not work. And we hope to avoid the ways we know that doesn't work for the human race. Basically it is as simple as this.

    A very good publish, thank you.....

    #23 I heard someone say that we are "response-able". This thought provoked an indepth study of the human condition of free will. Do we really have a choice in our responses to other humans, conditions and environment?

    How you answer that single question changes your perspective within communications.

    More importantly the answer will determine your responses as we consider truth and love. Truth and love in this context should be unconditional. In most cases though the two are conditional and contingent upon the other person. Conditional truth and love implies that others must meet a criteria before we can produce action.

    The criteria of acting inside the truth/love envelope is what i enjoy observing. Watching two people sort our criteria before they commit at the higher level is mystifying and entertaining.

    I have enjoyed this thread and the many comments that have sparked deep thought.

    #27 Change is a word that has become synonymous with the life experience. I dont believe we change, but rather evolve.

    As to saving the world and afternoon tea......We all have a world view of some form of destiny. The complexity comes forward when we discuss your first paragraph. Your nationality, dress and other hygiene visaulizations should not matter within a true discussion of truth and love. Yet it does.

    But i believe you strike at the very heart of nirvana. This destiny can only be achieved within a shared value set that excludes the visual and promotes the human. To share anything we must first see truth and love from a singularity. In the end this is the cause and effect that each media outlet leverages to increase ratings.

    Saving the world? This is a tall order and one that i gave up on. My goal is only to interface with others in a way that we can share a short journey and know that they and i have evolved a bit more in understanding. The weight of saving the world is to great for myself and comes with to large a dose of apathy. But my neighbor and i share a journey every now and again of truth and love.

    #24 Dear @Lisa Vanderburg, I bring you truth, love, happiness and peace. Follow me and you will follow the road to nirvana. At this point I have only one thing to ask of you, do you think I will look good in a white turban with a matching white but opulent dress or in a saffron turban with a Gandhi like impoverished look and leaving my legs visibly unshaven?

    This is why I refrained myself from this conversation because I did not want to ruin everybody's afternoon tea. I don't often read about these subjects and think "man that inspires me", because I am not looking for this inspiration. When I wake up I think "O.M.G..I am still here,, everything is in working order, I still have teeth to brush and some kind of breakfast to look forward to"

    I have been online since 1998 and I have participated in these kind of conversations about truth and next year it will be 20 years of hearing the same higher order desire for a better world. So consider me a failed guru unless this conversation leads to a transformed world, which it will not.

    So the answer to this invariably comes back to Rocky IV and that final speech https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRBak_2X3Do so what I am saying here Lisa is "if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change" :-)

    #9 To your last question on this comment, I'd have to say no (in my opinion). We are too imperfect to really be capable of sustaining love; as are the people who we would wish to be recipients thereof. That is our nature and, inevitably, our end.

    #19 Thank you Harvey, I so enjoy receiving your interactions and feedback, your structure and approach is so thought provoking. What happens when another's actions are not in alignment with my own? When words and actions cannot meet it will always make effective communicating at work or advancing a personal relationship challenging, if not impossible. When someone is unable to follow through on what he or she says with behaviors that match, there is a self-awareness issue. But it is not just some people. It is part of the human condition. If our external self has not developed a relationship with our internal self, they will operate independently until we actively begin to familiarise them with one another and integrate. It is then when actions begin to align with words and vice versa. For each individual's personal journey, this is perhaps life’s most profound and confounding challenge. However, when allignment is connected, the sky can be the limit in any situation. Personally, and as you have already quoted 'know the real truth and love definition' is of primal importance for long standing and sustained relationships.

    Truth and love are concepts that require defining. The first aspect of these two words is "action", without action the definition of the words can not be realized.

    The two words can be defined from two perspectives. My actions and the actions of others. This is where we can do the most harm or most good.

    What happens when another's actions are not in alighnment with my own?

    Each day we ask and answer this question for ourselves with either a higher definition (Love your neighbor.) or from a definition that we have developed over our narrative.

    "It is about taking time out to pay attention to the present moment, without judgement."

    I believe we do pay attention but we use a definition of truth and love that is not shared. Can we love the employee or friend who selfishly manipulates their environment for their own purposes? We can if our definitions are absolutes. Not easy, but allows us to transcend our own experiences and create understanding for others.

    Leaders today are managing a truth and love definition that gets defined by the media. Until they choose a higher absolute definition of these words we will continue down a path of uncertainty.

    This is a very compelling post as we look at our way of life and cause and effect. The term "post truth" really implies we have entered an era of "multi-truth". Ours is only the choice of which one to follow. Or.....Or. Know the real truth and love definition and maintain a constant within the face of the multi-truth world that is developing.

First, I've always wanted to build canoes (Which I know my friend @Don 🐝 Kerr, would understand) and I WILL do that ("I'm working on my first pair of snowshoes to learn how to form wood strips), the second (and funny thing), was that if I had it to do over again I might have pursued the Ethnomusicologist path as well.

    Maria Popova attributes to Gandhi

    "Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny." http://literaryjukebox.brainpickings.org/post/88882071407

    People are not my project, whether anyone accepts, lives or preaches higher level values is entirely their own business. 7 billion people with 7 billion laws creates a world of anarchy rather than a world of people with values. It is good to have values and for me it is the foundation stone of "know thyself", in a world which is the opposite of that and wants to be personal brand.

    Though I am not a keener on "make myself feel good" philosophies (every emotion in the book is ours as humans and should be profited from whenever required). Happiness is not the be all and end all. It is simply an emotion, a state of mind other than an equal other. I do agree fully with your recommendations re behaviours such as : "It’s cool to be truthful. It’s cool, to be honest. It’s cool to be reliable" and " "when you say you are going to do something, DO IT. It’s that simple. . . Be a person who keeps your promises, especially the ones you make to yourself."

    Very mindfully written by Omad Safi. A great example of reflective thinking and who we are when we put forth our better angel. We are far more complex as human beings than what our best face is but if we can't see that face, then this veers us away from reflective thinking and into the mask of positive thinking. As reflective thinking I welcome the way Omad sees his world noting that this is his world. The world we see, that is our own choice to see, rather than as another mask such as found in personal brand thinking.

    #4 This is why I do not put stock into comments but into energy, and the energy of reflection you speak of is presence. The students in my college hate my emails because their meme is that attention is precious, but I say meaning is precious and the meaning we deposit is raw material. That is the problem with education is it not, it is all about doing/having and not thinking/being - so my doing is not your being, all I have here at beBee is thinking in what is presence that got presented.

    What separates reflection from comments is the energy it generates and how we link this energy up will determine what it lights (hence the word enlightenment). Words like "goals" and "challenges" are also raw material but processed as an energy called reflection it can take us to a wholly different place like it did for Leo Babauta here https://zenhabits.net/no-goal/

    The last thing I want to do is change others for they are responsible for that change but a comment is in the past - reflection is in the present - and the act of you reading what I am thinking out aloud here is you reading my past - for the simple reason presence is in my present.

    Presence is where my energy meets my consciousness where I am fully alive, and so is reflection a foundation like a house or is it an energy that travels through a house that makes a house a home and shifts making a living into making a life?

    When I was taking selfies in the early 80's, it looked odd that someone at that time would point a camera at themselves and take a picture, so when my kids discovered an old album of selfies, they screamed "Hey! Papa used to take selfies!!!".

    The same goes with reflective practice. People are not familiar or largely do not engage in reflection, yet both of us do and therefore we represent the early majority of this particular way of thinking. Of course reflection cannot be compared to selfies. Reflection is a higher order faculty, whereas selfies is a lower order indulgence. The irony is that in recent decades I tend to limit being in photographs because reflective practice helps see through things and become conscious of what is image and what is presence.

    Nor do I take pictures on my travels to capture moments to add them to the 10,000 other captured moments because it is easy to engage visual collection - but it is more meaningful for me to be present and enjoy the blessings of a mind that is more relaxed and free - and ironically in such a mind, there is greater room to learn to see, which sits at the basis of what we can imagine and in this way reflection is a complimentary intelligence to vision and this "learning to see".

    Casey, A prediction: You will do well in the goals you choose. I can say that because you have learned one of the great lessons of life. There always will come a time when you have succeeded, failed, finished or tripped over something. It is then that you need to step back and reconsider. It is worth distancing and rediscovering yourself as you have been transformed. Always.

    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    26/05/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    In the perfect world we live with a family that loves us and home is where our confidence is. This however is rare, either the home is torn asunder by economic pressures, or people try make their way to the outside world, and it is in this harsher environment that self-confidence becomes a survival skill. Counting on people who may or may not be the friends we think they are, needs us to rely more on prescription, then life is search for a happiness pill.

    This is where me and @Javier 🐝 beBee can enjoy our difference, because two of his greatest idols are much more like me and they are Sevy Ballestros and Rafeal Nadal. Where I share a commonality with @Javier 🐝 beBee is the root of working class life.

    Sevy pushed back at authority and wanted to change the game, and he was a kind of a daredevil. It is the dark and the light that made him. Nadal's greatest strengths stem from what some would see as a weakness, which is his capacity to doubt.

    This is what Nadal said about confidence in at Time magazine article :

    "On confidence .. http://time.com/108222/rafael-nadal-interview/

    “I doubt about myself,” Nadal says. “I think the doubts are good in life. The people who don’t have doubts I think only two things: arrogance or not intelligence.”

    Now if this reality does not fit the scenario of tips for confidence then don't shoot the messenger. I love a yin-yang life, I love healthy contradictions in character. I agree with Nadal but I am not him.

    Your wife Kate has a very nice site https://www.wakeupkate.com/ and she calls it a mindfulness meditation consultancy. I generally assumed meditation to be mindfulness, so it will be interesting to discern what the actual difference is. Moreover one of our club students is engaging in a speech in a couple of weeks about meditation, so this is a timely buzz in that regard.

    Silence is Golden. The control we need to achieve quietude is humongous. But great ideas and thoughts are born during our silence ans disconnect from all the commotion around us. Sometimes Control and silence make great partners and should go hand in hand.

    Your message conveys the depth of your passion for your work.. I loved your quote share as well @Randall Burns as there is profoundness in the simplicity.
    I believe this to be true and that whenever there is need for some wisdom necessary in our lives they can be garnered from the very things that we are passionately connected to. You reflect from the soul of the kitchen a knowing beyond the knowledge which works for us all. And I guess I too sense much of my reflections manifest in the interconnects of arts and life. Often as a dance teacher there is a need to convey the perspectives in the patterns of movement beyond the steps...
    So I couldnt help but smile with all my heart😊 . We as writers are artists of our thoughts and are one lucky lot as we can streamline our reflections of life and living, with our words to heal the self as much as the world we share our thoughts with.

    Great post @Savvy Raj, very insightful and true. I agree with you. In the kitchen I'm constantly trying to mentor young Cooks, and it's not just about recipes but perspectives, knowledge and wisdom as well, it is a very rewarding aspect of my job. At the risk of sounding flippant, which I really am not, here is a quote that I use with them to try and get them onto the road of differentiating "Knowledge" from "Wisdom" , it's a start, (the more advanced one I will pass your articles onto),

    "Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit,
    Wisdom is knowing NOT to put it into a fruit salad"

    Great Buzz. I am so for change in life. The world changes with technology, culture, and so much more. If I do what I always done, I will get what I've always gotten. For better results and goals, I must change. "Try, Fail, Adjust (Change), Succeed"
    So I am for change in all things EXCEPT ONE. Man does not have the authority to change the will of God on any subject. We have been given severe warnings in several places in the Bible concerning any changes that we try to make to God's word. As we have already seen in Galatians 1:6-9, if we pervert the gospel by changing it, we will be accursed. Society has been using the word "Change" as change the Word of God or just ignore the Word of God. This is dangerous and will is just from pride and ego.
    "Pride is a Spiritual Cancer: it eats up the very possibility of love, or contentment, or even common sense." - C. Lewis. EGO is the pride we show to others and the pride we keep to ourselves that we don't do the world is real Pride and the real spiritual cancer.

    This is the first time I tag you @Savvy Raj to read my last buzz on Friction of Ideas and I do hope you respond. This is because your attracted my attention immensely in your comment right from the first line. "Knowledge is one thing. Understanding is quite another. Knowledge needs constant up-gradation as it is never ever constant in the time and space dimensions" Just read the exchange of comments between @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, @🐝 Fatima G. Williams and I to see the relevance of your buzz to the buzz and discussions.
    "Think universally and act globally to begin with and see the structure in the chaos and relate to the rhythms in nature I love to connect with nature and I enjoyed your poem immensely,

    Appreciate your interesting shares here . And looks like I have interlinked to both of your thoughts in resonance somewhere.

    When seeking to know challenges the wisdom to dare beyond the comfort zones . And exploring in understanding takes its course it time .... we evolve together as we witness with joy the emerging patterns in the fractality of our beings .

    Thank you my dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams and @CityVP 🐝 Manjitty for these valuable inputs as much as your kind appreciation.

    #1 #7 Thank you @Deb 🐝 Helfrich for picking up the very lines which to me is the crux of the message I wanted to convey in these thoughts. Of reaching beyond knowledge, of trusting in a knowing, of blending beyond the borders .💜💙💜

    As a golf player he was unique and there will never be another like him. As a family man along with his sons, his wife Carmel and his parents and brothers that part of his story is something I value even more than his professional accomplishments. Then there is the legacy of his foundation, and here I would like to leave a video - one in English and the other in Spanish. It is an honour and privilege to have been witness to his life and being. The video's are linked below

    @Juanma Romero talks much about charisma - and I find Seve's charisma and vitality still so much alive that I shed tears of absolute respect to his memory and life, for he transcends golf and he is the human being that we can all aspire to be because he was thankful to life, to his blessings and he is so missed but his spirit is with us. We share in this immense tribute to him.

    Severiano "Seve" Ballesteros Sota (9 April 1957 – 7 May 2011) was a Spanish professional golfer, a World No. 1 who was one of the sport's leading figures from the mid-1970s to the mid-1990s. A member of a gifted golfing family, he won more than 90 international tournaments in his career, including five major championships between 1979 and 1988: The Open Championship three times, and the Masters Tournament twice. He gained attention in the golfing world in 1976, when at the age of 19 he finished second at The Open.

    He played a leading role in the re-emergence of European golf, helping the European Ryder Cup team to five wins both as a player and captain.

    He won the World Match Play Championship a record-tying five times.

    He is generally regarded as the greatest Continental European golfer of all time.
