Comments18/09/2016 #14 Anonymous#1 @Paul Kemner Thank you for your feedback. Just a quick heads up on this. There are as many ways to practice Wicca as there are Witches. Some people practice with others. These groups can be "closed" or "open." And some people practice on their own.
Either. Often both. Witches are not great believers in black-and-white divisions. So there's a lot of fluidity in how Wiccans practice.There are three basic forms for the practice of Wicca: Coven, Circle, and solitary Wicca practice.
Much is made in the media - and Christianity - of Wiccan Covens. In contrast, few Witches make any fuss about it.17/09/2016 #7 AnonymousI liked this Karen! It is wonderful to engage with and earn the friendship of those who hold different worldviews; our territory expands, our vision extends, our minds open up to new possibilities. We are freed from the shackles of dogma and can observe our similarities as human beings, traveling together- perhaps from different vehicles and on different roads, but each of us together- drawn towards our own pilgrimage. Labels force separateness and may cause unnecessary suffering. Anyone who loves nature, trees and lives peacefully is 'practicing' well and personally, I shall like to learn from such practices!17/09/2016 #6 Chas WyattThe term 'Witch' has a lot of baggage and a cultural history of negative connotation. Often, the image of the wicked witch of the East melting in the movie "The Wizard of Oz" comes to mind, even though Wanda, the good witch of the West also has a prominent role in the movie. The terms, 'wizard', 'sorcerer', 'shaman', or 'brujo', don't seem to carry the same negative connotations as the term 'witch' does in our culture. Part of it is sexist, part of it is religious bigotry and part of it is the negative imprint from history. Often people in a Judeo-Christian mind-set believe that other cultures are worshiping nature, when in fact they are worshiping the creator through the creation- a totally different perception. Back in the 70's I had a friend that had a strepped throat and as she was walking downtown she ran across a woman and was having a hard time talking to her and explained her condition to her; the woman said she was a witch and placed her hand on her throat and the sore throat and swelling immediately dissappeared. Perhaps if the term 'healer' were used, the negative connotations of a 'witch' putting her hand on my friend's throat wouldn't come to mind. But, the woman she ran across was the real deal, not someone just wearing the label, like many people who claim to be 'psychic' but, are just using it as a ploy to make a buck.17/09/2016 #2 CityVP ManjitFirst of all I would like to thank @Aurorasa Sima for bringing me your way. This is a brilliant account of a way of life that would otherwise pass me by. What is most important in this account is Virginia. You spent time with the uniqueness of one being but also offered the meaning of diversity and I welcome both. You have so honoured your friend that your relationship with her is not found in friendship, it is as natural as the universe.
No matter what faith system we examine, we can find beautiful people within them all. We are not expansive enough or may have sufficient mental bandwidth to capture the full diversity. What you have expressed here is the true meaning of diversity and you have expressed this at a supernal level. I will never know who Virginia is, but you get me racing towards her for such is the power of your expression and storytelling.
I walk away with an appreciation for Virginia, an expansion of my insight that brought Wicca into view and you touched the soul of essence, whereas what usually makes faith problematic is where the symbol has been lost and replaced by hardened arteries. Virginia is original source, these people are rare and unique. A single life can be studied for itself and not be fully comprehended in a lifetime of study and yet in this world diversity is about going beyond that life and the ways that emanate from diversity. You have taken me fully into this world as if I had always been there and that is why cite this as brilliant. Absolutely brilliant !17/09/2016 #1 Paul KemnerThere are apparently many types of witchcraft, and many don't have anything to do with Wicca. Kitchen Witchery, Stregheria (Italian) , Celtic, ancient Greek- I think I've seen at least 20. There is even a Christian Witchcraft tradition (possibly connecting with Braucherei tradition in America. Most don't seem to involve a coven structure.
- Producer28/08/2016CUANDO PREGUNTAR ES UN ARTE "Obtendrás las respuestas adecuadas haciendo las preguntas adecuadas". Parece una obviedad pero... ¿sabemos hacer esas preguntas?.Creo que muchas veces nos auto censuramos. ¿El motivo?. Nos aterra escuchar respuestas que no queremos oír. Y hasta...
Comments30/08/2016 #4 Oscar Montejo Rodriguez#3 Estoy de acuerdo. Vemos las cosas de un modo similar aunque con matices enriquecedores para ambos. Exacto. Las respuestas podemos encontrarlas dentro de nosotros mismos pero muchas personas necesitan que alguien les muestre la manera de hacerlo. En definitiva, hay que aprender. Esa es la base de la vida. Un abrazo! Y gracias!30/08/2016 #3 CityVP Manjit#2 We are very similiar minds and I welcome you responding in your native Castillian language (or "castellano"). What resonated with me most is
"Mis reflexiones no son verdades absolutas, son mis verdades. Y estas verdades estan en continua evolución, como evoluciona mi vida."
Which translated on my end as "My thoughts are not absolute truths , are my truths. And these truths are constantly evolving , as my life evolves ." My biggest concern is that people think we have the answers when the answers exist in their being. It is clear that we are looking at our respective worlds with the same spirit.
I learned today the Spanish word "verdades". I support all those whose personal growth is based on "verdade" This is worthy of hugs :-)29/08/2016 #2 Oscar Montejo Rodriguez#1 Primero pedirte disculpas por responderte en castellano, dado que mi nivel de inglés no es lo suficientemente bueno como para poder desarrollar una respuesta coherente a tu comentario. Agradezco que hayas leido el post. Creo, igual que tu, que unicamente puedes ayudar a alguien que quiere ser ayudado. Cuando me aventuré en el apasionante mundo de escribir acerca de temas de crecimiento personal, lo hice basandome en una única premisa , mostrar a otros que siempre hay otra manera de ver las cosas , especialmente cuando existe un bloqueo emocional que te impide disfrutar de una vida plena y satisfactoria. No soy psicologo ni coach. Solo una persona corriente que en un determinado momento de su vida tuvo que aprender a reinventarse dado que el camino que llevaba estaba guiandole a una vida que no deseaba para el. Era un niño en un mundo para el que no estaba preparado. Asi que decidi modificar esos aspectos que me lastraban e impedían que pudiera llevar la vida que desaba vivir. Mis reflexiones no son verdades absolutas, son mis verdades. Y estas verdades estan en continua evolución, como evoluciona mi vida. Una de las cosas que aprendi, con mucho esfuerzo, fue a preguntarme sin tapujos. No es sencillo hacerlo, ya que las respuestas no siempre me gustaban. Pero el tiempo me demostró lo acertado de mi planteamiento ( al menos en mi caso). No dire nunca a nadie que debe hacer ya que cada persona es un mundo de experiencias diferentes . Lo que a mi me sirve, a ti puede que no te sirva de nada. Pero animare a todo el quiera oirne a no conformarse, y a buscar las respuestas que necesite para llevar la vida que merece vivir. Sin mas, darte las gracias. Es un placer tenerte por aqui. Un saludo y un abrazo!29/08/2016 #1 CityVP ManjitAt the personal level, getting to the right question should involve difficult thinking. The self-help book industry has created a market for easy answers which Alanis Morrisette mocks in her song Eight Easy Steps https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pasC4vpD8XA (Subtitulada en español) so for me asking the right questions must accompany both challenge and having met that challenge, transform this challenge into practical action.
I do not want other people to be my projects, I have enough things to learn in this life time without trying to teach people what they probably are not willing to do. It is not that they cannot, it is more that they will not. I say the opposite, if someone does not want to develop themselves, I say that is your choice, sit there and live with your choice. It is a bigger risk not growing and developing than the risking our own comfort zone. So I choose to learn - for sure I will help a child, but an adult that thinks like a child, is an adult who needs to grow up - or remain a child.
I took the liberty of quoting 1 Corinthians 13:11 in Spanish [" Cuando yo era niño, hablaba como niño, pensaba como niño, razonaba como niño; pero cuando llegué a ser hombre, dejé las cosas de niño. " ] from http://biblehub.com/multi/1_corinthians/13-11.htm The right question that leads to right action means we practice to grow and avoids the flaw of learned helplessness.

I have seen as well the David Cannom video you linked, and I can not imagine what a hell you have been through (and still are).
From the outlook of a father, and thinking that the disease you are suffering would be as a consequence of the car accident on which your daughter was too, the thought about the possibility of my daughter suffering this disease would be for me unbearable.
I am not prone to say that "everything happens for good" or "God knows why is sending this to me".
But wise and sensitive people like you, take the advantage of bad experiences too.
And like forging steel, you have used the bad times in your life which put you in red-hot and banged you like with a blacksmith hammer,

Comments08/08/2016 #21 CityVP Manjit#20 Dear Irene, we sit at the triangular point of all our ancestors and we stand at the triangular point for all the generations to come. Eternity sounds good until we have to live forever - for sure transhumanism will find ways of extending life because extended life encompasses the knowledge we pass from generation to generation - but there is purpose in nature that surpasses human intention and their is wisdom in nature and it is nature that we will learn the most from and not a desire for immortality. That is why the present moment is special because it is not endless time, it is special because of all of our todays and those yet to be born will have their todays when they arrive.. Our intelligence is leaving this Earth smarter than when we arrived and then for generations to come (the unborn) to stand on the shoulders of the great.08/08/2016 #20 Anonymous#19 @CityVP Manjit - your response is the 'stuff' of eternal thought, and I am pondering the idea of "backward walking into the past" and what use that would mean to humans. Time is a concept (is it, or is it not?) Your superb idea of "no need for activism, no wast of protest, just the quality of our hand-off to the next generation as they evolve for their 'today'" is absolutely relevant! Is this 'radical acceptance' of 'what is' or is this allowing energy to flow through us, without interfering with it - "presence", as you say. I wonder what manifestation would evolve from a unified state of such presence - where there is nothing 'unborn', the cycles of birth/death no longer necessary.07/08/2016 #19 CityVP Manjit#16 The great thing about the future Irene is that we are already there, if others join the present the more the better, if they don't that is no loss because it is up to us to notice when we are backward walking into the past, but every time we stop and notice that we are living the future in the present moment, then there is no need for activism, no waste of protest, just the quality of our hand-off to the next generation as they evolve for their "today" and the transition to the unborn today's to come.07/08/2016 #16 Anonymous#15 Truly profound expressions @CityVP Manjit. Machismo is a word we don't hear to often these days, but surely it lives! I am graced by your including me in your description of the 21st Century view that beBee embraces, where a human being is valued based on "merit for who they are and not how they look or what gender they are." My mantra, as implied in your eloquent response, is that every human has intrinsic value. "The new face of work and life" - another great beBee tagline @Javier beBee @Juan Imaz @Matt Sweetwood. You are another fine Bee whose thought process simply blows me away with intrigue!07/08/2016 #15 CityVP Manjit#13 Dear Irene, this is what makes BeBee special. When I look at Latin American and Iberian culture it is highly machismo based http://floratheexplorer.com/sexism-machismo-and-the-latin-attitude-to-women/ - where men are bulls and fighters and women are cats and objects of whatever. So if any social network embraces a 21st Century view of the world and if BeBee is showing signs that this is real, then that is how I look upon you as women - and that includes so many other women I have encountered here on this platform. If this then represents the new face of work and life, then it represents the new face of merit and the value of a human being for who they are and not how they look or what gender they are. I know this because I was born in a similiar cat-call culture, but that is the difference between just being a man and becoming human. Machismo is not going away eb.stanford.edu/group/womenscourage/Repro_Latin/ekobash_HIVmachismo_Latin.html but the 21st Century has also hardly begun and I look forward to new beginnings.07/08/2016 #10 CityVP ManjitThere is something wonderful to be said about being surrounded by strong women and @Irene Hackett and all the women who have commented so far here have exemplify and are exemplary of that strength I call a "21st Century intelligence" and in this I honour this buzz but more importantly I honour you all.

Thank you for your thoughts here .23/07/2016 #12 CityVP ManjitIt is the scarcity of the feminine which is frightening today. There is no pathway to renaissance if we do not understand the relationship between our masculine and feminine being within ourselves. This is a balance I am cognoscente of that which is within me for I cannot welcome the universe if I am merely half a human being. This is energy and we have made of the feminine a linear identity, when it is entirely dynamic, which is the balance within us between the masculine and feminine - an integration necessary to be whole - and that is what is born within, way before we treat masculine as pertaining to man and feminine pertaining to woman - and this division is a product of a patriarchal society that continues to view the matriarchal as a lesser thing. Such is such that a Fatherland can produce a Hitler at the same time a Motherland can produce a Gandhi.

Close20/07/2016 #14 Anees Zaidi#9 Dear brother @Ali Anani the good thing about a 'broken heart' is it has the natural healing capability. It just needs some 'quite time' to absorb the 'attack' and recover the 'wound'. As it is said 'The time heals all wounds'. However, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy differs “It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.” Can we recover the wound through 'forgiveness'? Forgiveness gives 'inner peace'. Can we amend our 'grievance story' to a 'learning story' through 'forgiveness'? I am happy you liked 'The Window of My Truth'.

Comments10/07/2016 #2 CityVP Manjit#1 IMHO It is the simplicity which is hard work Franciane which makes genius so. When it comes to what is stupid there is a line in Shakespeare which says that there is nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so. Even here the simple thing is for me to quote a line from Shakespeare, but the difficult is for me to read Shakespeare, which is what I think this Portugeuse writer is trying to say in this blog or at least his title of his post is amusing https://blogdomaximus.com/2011/02/01/hamlet-e-as-vas-citacoes-de-quem-nao-leu-shakespeare/ The Beatles found this genius but it is a simplicity which packs an incredible amount of awareness or meaning - and that is what separates being clever from creativity that is genius, again in my opinion.
- 09/07/2016Since I live my life in the moment called now, I just received a great gift from @Juani Sánchez Serrano-Sánchez which then led me to a track called TIMELESS I have already including Juani's original buzz into White Intelligence. The only way I know how to make our world a more beautiful place is to use my hand to shine it, in circles of gratitude. My thanks to Juani.PBSR | Timeless Official audio for "Timeless" from the EP "Of Flaming Souls..." PBSR on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pbsrworld PBSR on Twitter:...
Comments11/07/2016 #30 Augusto Santos#16 Thank you for mentioning me @CityVP Manjit, I feel the same about you and other bees. Our affinity is growing faster and stronger day by day. It's awesome to be part of various hives, make friends, opportunities and learn with the buzzes. And Juani's video really brings de serenity that propose. Thanks for share with us Juani Sánchez, I really loved that!10/07/2016 #29 CityVP Manjit#28 Franciane it is only appropriate that a song by PBSR (Paul) called Serenades involves a serenade to voices like yours. BTW You will find @Juani Sánchez Serrano-Sánchez posts of interest, she represents another of the bright women that grace BeBee and which make this platform all the much better for such presence.10/07/2016 #25 Savvy RajWonderful to witness heartfelt love for music and the magic that manifests in every such move from the heart .. @CityVP Manjit I thank you for the thoughtful mention. And I am tuned in the connectedness here that you have generated through your heartfelt words and share of sentiments..10/07/2016 #18 CityVP ManjitBTW when I say Portuguese, I mean Portuguese speakers - all of the people I have met on BeBee are currently from Brazil. I remember coming to Canada and remarking to a shopkeeper that I enjoy meeting Americans like her. She through a hissy-fit and told me that she is a "CANADIAN". When I met with a business colleague in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he took exception to people in the United States thinking they are "American" - so to my fellow Canadian's - get over it, you are American as Spanish people are European.10/07/2016 #16 CityVP ManjitI never write out the huge cc list until I am mindful of who I am sharing a particular spirit with and the spirit I find in this video reflection https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gci1SFKgVMA is the spirit I have found in the connections with these people. Alvaro: @Alvaro Rojas Augusto: @Augusto Santos Mamen: @Mamen Delgado Alex: @Alex Justino Da Silva Federico: @Federico Álvarez San Martín Marco: @Marco Bensión Alonso Catalina: @Catalina Serrano Franciane: @Franciane Nunes Paciência Torres: Josean @Josean Arranz Linares Carolina: @Carolina Codromaz and incredible artist whose art I also find brilliant Javier: @Javier Benitez Toyos. This just an example of what affinity looks like from my perspective and how that informs @Juan Imaz and @Javier beBee and @John White, MBA, et al - that is for them to figure out. It was Josean who gave me the first glimpse into music from Spanish artists, and now I discover PBSR and I am compelled to share it with these recent Spanish and Portuguese friends. Such is the power of affinity as love and not affinity as need - a much higher resonance, purpose and value.10/07/2016 #12 CityVP Manjit#11 My most immediate comparison with PBSR and in tribute to you a mother "Paul" is James Blake's Timeless. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdGpDuzEOKo Blake is a few years older than Paul, also operating out of London and also singer/songwriter. His song "Timeless" contains a certain heaviness, but Paul's "Timeless" is timeless between my ears. Ultimately PBSR has the makings of a distinct brand, and the way I see his development now, he is enjoying his music, he has graduated through music college, he is fascinated in collaborations beyond just musicians but as an ecosystem of arts. If there is something different about millennials, then this is what I hear in his music - he is not trying to be a star but looks absolutely in flow with his art. I know this because I see this in the acoustic video Ramon filmed for "Seranades" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uthAaMto5tQ This video is what I draw @Sara Jacobovici and @Savvy Raj attention to - this speaks to Paul.10/07/2016 #7 CityVP Manjit#6 Dear Sara what I can determine is PBSR is 23 year old from Spain, who records his records in London PBSR is shortform for Pablo Serrano - so I am guessing that he may in fact be related to Juani since her surname is hyphenated Serrano-Sánchez. His first album looks like it was releasing last month. He is from Murcia Spain and having just checked Juani's profile, I am pretty sure that this is a close relationship. I have established that we both attended the University of West London, but Pablo studied at the London College of Music campus, while I studied management studies at the Ealing campus. What I can determine is that he forged a partnership with photographer Alfonso Riera http://www.revistamagma.es/alfonso-riera/ while there is also an association with Ramon Serrano, who I presume his brother. What seems clear that they have not yet published lyrics online because the release dates are so recent - but I am sure @Juani Sánchez Serrano-Sánchez can fill us in with other info.
My name is Alvaro, I have an Travel & Photography instagram page called @joeredtravel where I try to inspire people to get out there and explore. I take my camera with me everywhere I go, and I try to go as many places as I can!
I will try to post a picture a day with you beautiful people!
This one was taken in January during a brutal snowstorm and is one of my favourite black & white pictures.
