- 28/07/2016The Diversity of Thinking buzz leads me to follow up on three more video's about the plant world. We can refer to this as plant intelligence, where intelligence does not become anthropomorphic i.e. I do not treat plants as human beings but as a distinct ecology I have yet to fully appreciate. @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee 's buzz https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/disruption-of-thinking#c23 From this single buzz alone I have already found two distinct pathways for my own learning journey, plants via Ali Anani and Creativity via @Sara Jacobovici - in all that is 7 video's that emerge from this buzz - 1 about vibrations that is 1 hour long contained in Ali Anani's buzz and the 6 that I have personally earmarked for my own attention. Looks like i will not be watching movies with the family for a couple of days and that is the value of a learning journey, distinct from the normal course of our entertainment schedules. Look forward to watching these 3 Plant Docs's and 3 video's featuring Mr and Mrs Root-Bernstein.What Plants Talk About (Full Documentary) When we think about plants, we don't often associate a term like "behavior" with them, but experimental plant ecologist JC Cahill wants to change that.

Comments29/07/2016 #12 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#11 Dear Dilma, the Brazilian contigent on BeBee is an impressive force, I can see from your buzz that some are already interacting with your buzz's. In my lexicon a "monkey" is a follower, whereas the plant or tree has a different kind of diversity and this is not a following like a bee but an observation. To observe means noticing, to follow is monkey see, monkey do a.k.a. reactive and/or conforming. I encourage @Augusto Santos to check your profile and buzz out - as Jiddu Krishnamurti said, "the observer is the observed".29/07/2016 #11 DILMA BALBI -📃 Engenharia&gestão#9 Hi @CityVP 🐝 Manjit.. thanks for stopping by. I'd also recognize me as "monkey jumping from tree to tree or a bee moving from flower to flower" (lol). I also have others posts here at be Bee .. if you have some extra time feel free to visit then. I apreciated your message and I'll follow you to learn more and more.. Have a nice weekend.29/07/2016 #9 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#8 Hi Dilma I did check out your LinkedIn and even though I do not speak a lick of Portuguese or Spanish, I saw you had two postings there. The first about ZBB I have followed up on here https://www.bebee.com/content/695856/692658 as a part of my "Red Wisdom" and the second I have noted as a book you were interested in "Obvious Adams" by Robert Updegraff, which I also did not know about and discover is a classic in business circles, so much so it is now readily available for anyone to read at the Open Library https://openlibrary.org/books/OL7130468M/Obvious_Adams - I have noted it also for my own personal learning under my "Blue Wisdom" here https://www.bebee.com/content/695866/692670 What this means in the context of plants is that I would rather be a plant that finds its roots or a tree that finds its branches, than a monkey jumping from tree to tree or a bee moving from flower to flower - and the implications of that are immense. It means I have found an alternative to following - which is fractal learning. In such learning we find and make our own branches, while others establish and find their own. There is a limit to fractal learning which is that one must turn things off in order to focus on what has been found, otherwise it is merely following i.e. that social media world of monkey see, monkey do. Thanks Dilma for both of your linkedIn postings !!!29/07/2016 #3 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#2 I have a couple of days of material to get through, such is the findings that emerged today - will be able to get to a response around Sunday : 28th Jul 2016 re: Milos Djukic Social Pyschology Links to Chaos Theory

- Producer11/09/2017Visual Flow of IdeasMy latest three buzzes received more than three hundred comments on beBee alone. These comments are mostly in response to previous comment(s). The flow of comments may have been interrupted occasionally; alas they produced great ideas. This buzz...
Comments25/09/2017 #129 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#127 No. There are explanations worth giving but while some of us are adaptive to thinking, the human race in general in creating conceptions such as nationality and religion are drawn to concreting what should adaptive. While the adaptive mind can adapt, the history of concrete and linear thinking has shown how symbols have been literally translated. Instead of the river of life being a metaphor, Indians treat the Ganges as a literal translation.
This is why I consider HR to be the bastion of a religion rather than a business enterprise. For sure there are great entrepreneurs who give life and meaning to HR, but just as religion has become obsessed with the symbol, so does the rank and file of HR. The last time I upset command and control HR it was a Myers-Briggs exercise that HR group was having with employees. That showed me how a DISC profile can quickly turn into a DICK profile. Why would people interpret these things any different in the future, when there are so many still messing up the past.
I celebrate this buzz because you are adaptive and the comments have my regard because you tend to attract adaptive minds, but no matter how well we explain these things, these things flow back to that very space which we find so much comedy, from Dilbert to Office Space, from House of Lies to Swimming with Sharks. An explanation of a DICK profile does nothing to enlighten the world but the existence of literal minded HR folk mean that we are left only with that image of comedy and tragedy as the paradox we have failed to overcome - and so instead of explanation, one must smile knowing that this is still actual life. This cow path has been walked on so long that we notice only the road less traveled and in that is the humour.18/09/2017 #126 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhen I began reading this it was because Chris had linked this to my Yellow Hive. The opening paragraphs seemed to be about complexity and the butterfly effect which would place this buzz in my Violet Hive, yet the actual meat and bones of this buzz is about communication and thus I moved this buzz into my Gray Hive.
Filter failure starts with our first primary response. Since I am going backwards in time reading old buzzes, this changes the context of recent buzzes but regardless of the context, my goal here is creating my own learning pathways and so I am constantly on the look out for new tangents and new avenues of inquiry. In a latter buzz I found one of those avenues which led me to the post on Curiousity, which I also immediately tagged today to my White Hive.
The umbrella theme of applying filters is a technicality that beBee can work out and in this context, the feedback here is going to @Javier 🐝 beBee but as I have arrived here, the context personally for me is my relationship with content and what the possibility of that content has for my learning. I can't design a filter for 7 billion people, but I can discern a filter for one person, which is my own self. Discernment is the most natural filter we have, because it is us as human being and not as a model.
If I created DREAMER - INFLUENCER - CRITIC - KOOLKAT such a DICK profile will be just as useful as a DISC profile for determining filters but such a classification remains unnecessarily complex. Our ability to hide content is technically available, but discernment is our own choice. In the world of comments people mostly forget what they have written, the content maker should have tools to curate their content, but discernment is a personal choice and not a group model.13/09/2017 #125 Harvey Lloyd#123 Be careful now, you are setting an expectation i may not be able to uphold in all settings. I appreciate your comments and also the learning journey. Thanks @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA for your kind words.

The same graphmay be used for building negotiation teams and reverse thinking. I have huge exchange of emails with @Harvey Lloyd over the last few days-enough to write an ebook. The discussions have been truly worthy. Will sharevery soon our findings. Close13/09/2017 #114 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#112 Thank you @Harvey Lloyd. I like very much your elaboration "Our methods truly zero in on the response, not the stimulus itself". I should consider this point in the forthcoming buzz. I was responding to the comment of @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee and I am sue she too will give your comment the attention it deserves.
As you are aware, I am still probing how best to formulate the next buzz and your comments here are stretching my mind into more options. I thank you also for your kind words about me. However; without your active participation the discussions would not have reached the level we are all enjoying here.
The fact that so many new ideas are surfacing out is so pleasing to the heart. I would love your feedback on drawing the experience map. I sure your experience will produce a great map. The discussions here have highlighted the importance of visualizing our thinking and differences. To this end you have a great credit.13/09/2017 #112 Harvey Lloyd#109 I guess i am a little sensitive in this issue. We work with students all day that are unbending in their point of view. Our goal is to help them step back take another look and see if they can find different ways to express themselves. The students are emotionally disturbed. They act out their emotions in ways society can not handle.
Criticism here at the school is defined so broadly that it is difficult express to students what criticism may look like. It gets a bit hairier when you try to help students understand the different nuances of negative and positive.
Our methods truly zero in on the response, not the stimulus itself. The students are taught that they have the power to choose how the interpret a event, situation and how their choices should be guided by the outcome they want. In debriefing with students concerning the outcomes we typically inquire did they get what they wanted from the behaviour.
So many of my comments are standing on this fundamental understanding of the human dynamic. Self Awareness first, then discernment through analysis of events and potential outcomes based on your response.
This has been one of the best threads on beBee since my start. We truly are tackling some of the grand issues of our time. They sting as the various opinions surface, but amazingly, the dialogue continues. Thank you @Ali Anani for your continued efforts to help us better understand our paradigm.13/09/2017 #109 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#105 Thank you @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee. As much as I learnt from the exchange of comments on a negative experience that produced positive outcomes. I applied my thinking- that is pairing the negative with positive. So,if someone criticises me, mouths me or whatever he does I find now that coupling/pairing these actions with positive ones is far more rewarding than meeting negativity with negativity. I am so indebted to you for understanding me to this level dear Deb. I want also to draw the attention of @Lisa Vanderburg, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich and @Harvey Lloyd to this exchange of comments between you and I.

Comments09/09/2017 #11 Jerry Fletcher#6 Wisdom is a hard one to handle appropriately. Three friends and I once put together a book called Gathering Wisdom. After we talked about it we agreed that each of us had wisdom in our own areas of expertise and that some of those areas overlapped. And so the die was cast for the book's content: Mindfulness, Writing, Resilience and Networking.
But the most significant bit of wisdom we discovered was that none of us had stopped reading and exploring just for the sheer joy of learning.08/09/2017 #6 Graham🐝 Edwards#1 Thanks for the comment @Jerry Fletcher... isn't it fun to be surprised at the end... lol.

"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.

I recommend you read it after this buzz. It's a great continuation along similar lines.05/09/2017 #34 Louise SmithAs 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.01/09/2017 #30 Geoff Hudson-Searle@🐝 Fatima G. Williams great buzz, you purpose is possible nearer to you than you imagine, ‘find something more important than you are,’ philosopher Dan Dennett once said in discussing the secret of happiness, ‘and dedicate your life to it.’ There are certain factors and certain choices on your journey that make life easier and more worthwhile……01/09/2017 #26 Jerry FletcherFatima, You, like others here on beBee have the courage to wade in even when the waters are deep.

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.01/09/2017 #23 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#22 I am swimming right now Deb I was drowning when the questions dawned but not anymore. Infact as Chas said I am swimming against the current as I sense my purpose.

When you have a quiet moment have a conversation with a young child. When you really listen there are gems everywhere. We all have unique gifts and wisdom to share when we figure out how to really see, listen, think and act. It's the figuring out that's the tricky part of the journey.01/09/2017 #7 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeGreat story. I agree it is wonderful to talk with people 20 years older no matter what age we are.
What is interesting is how when we talk to people 20 years younger they too can add different insights. it seems to me we are not very good at listening to wise counsel from many, no matter whether they are younger or older.30/08/2017 #6 Peter AltschulerMy father once told me, "The older you get, the smarter I'll seem." Being in my 20s at the time, he needed to give his observation some context but, when he did, it made perfect sense. It provided vital guidance as a parent, a professional, and a part of my community. Yet, to it I've added J.M. Barrie's wry line: "I'm not young enough to know everything." Perhaps we only get to understand our past by looking back at ourselves from the future.

Comments13/08/2017 #16 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#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.13/08/2017 #14 Edward LewellenThis 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...13/08/2017 #13 Sue BryanThank you so much for sharing this bit of your pathway with us @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I appreciate your words, "Space is what we are, structure is what we think we are." And wish you all the Space you need. If you are interested, my version of a similar pathway is described in my latest article about my Core Values that you can find here: http://www.inward-journey.com/articles-and-blogs.html13/08/2017 #12 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#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.13/08/2017 #9 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#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.13/08/2017 #7 Pascal DerrienTransition pause break hiatus sabbatical etc often provide the necessary time to refine directions sometimes the stop can be much longer than anticipated but who says we always need to be in constant motion I am in one of those spaces having said that I am going cycling for the day now talking about contradictions hey 😀😀13/08/2017 #6 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorIMHO, 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.13/08/2017 #5 Dean Owen#4 I love his "Whisky Bible", which reminds me I need to get the latest edition. Referenced him in my article : https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dean-owen/a-tale-of-two-distilleries13/08/2017 #4 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#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.13/08/2017 #1 Dean OwenSpace 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.

Love your comment #45 , delightful @Louise Smith - very astute your chicken & egg analogy! Even the origins of the word passion means 'to suffer for' - most apt in this revolving/evolving buzz by the wonderful @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee!06/08/2017 #46 Louise Smith#45 Thank you @Lisa Vanderburg Do you read buzzes by @Gary Sharpe & @Deb 🐝 Helfrich ?
They write about Parkinson's.
A wobbly pearl is still a pearl and is beautiful as it is different to the perfect shape.
Killing the pearl bearer is a downside, I agree, but sometimes things which provide beauty are sacrificed as the pearl out rates the oyster.In money and beauty. It's a bit like the chicken and the egg, isn't it?06/08/2017 #45 Lisa Vanderburg#44 lol...no, I have a need to 'step out' now and then Think: serenity and passive tolerance in one instance to rabid cupboard monster the next : ) We have to move quickly & I have a husband with Parkinson's for 18 years and WILL NOT stay in his moving box!
But I love your comments #34 #37! Naturally my pearl would be very wobbly indeed, and of course, we have to kill the pearl-bearer!03/08/2017 #42 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#37 @Louise Smith- you are a "wisdom extractor". I read your comment thoughtfully and I myself couldn't extract the main ideas like you did. You are gifted and know where to focus your attention. You have a unique skill. You can listen to others and them extract the main issues I bit. I admire your comment as much as I admire your skill.02/08/2017 #37 Louise Smith#23 MY NEXT LAYER
It also occurred to me that from reading your buzz @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee that the addition of something foreign (microbe) into the oyster has a gloriously unexpected result. The formation also reminds me that just as the layers of nacre build up the pearl to be both strong and beautiful, so too the experiences I have both good and bad can do/have done the same for me. This is what makes a "unique light reflecting character".
And "The thinner and more numerous the layers in the pearl are, the finer the luster as successive layers break up light falling on their surfaces." represents that ageing is a positive refining process if we are open to it. Which agrees with "From salted waters of experiences come the pearls of magical colors"
"It is bewildering that these silica shells are efficient converters of sunlight to energy." So we can use our personal traits and talents, those raw materials and convert them to energy, polish them up to do or create something worthwhile for ourselves and others.
"The honeycomb arrangement appears as in mollusks with hexagonal shapes. Is this a coincidence?" No it is not. The hexagonal shapes are strong building blocks even if light that bear weight well and fit together to make a strong structure. They are found often in nature like beeswax !
Yes we can learn a lot from Nature. Thank you for an intriguing buzz.

They are bought by the Royalty of UK and Japan ! )02/08/2017 #36 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#34 "While I was reading your buzz, it occurred to me that pearls are like people or situations - different on the outside but similar on the inside".

I understand why you like baroque and freshwater pearls @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
They are formed the same way but look more natural.
I have worn pearls since I was 16yo when I inherited my Grandmother's. I didn't care if they were in fashion or not. I love them.
But I started out wearing the perfect shaped pearls. This reflected that I was brought up in a very conservative family.
With time, growth and acceptance, I have now come to love the difference of shape and colour of baroque and freshwater pearls.
So pearls are a great symbol for me of my life journey and the variety of shape, colour and acceptance of difference I have come to believe in.
While I was reading your buzz, it occurred to me that pearls are like people or situations - different on the outside but similar on the inside.02/08/2017 #33 Louise Smith#23 @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I also really liked Jerry Fletcher's comment in your previous buzz
“Again, cogent and contained but not comfortable."
It's very intriguing because it's exactly how I feel about most of your buzzes. Especially the "not comfortable" part.
This is what makes your writing so interesting @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.
It's a bit edgy which makes the reader focus and concentrate to understand the content.
Usually I read them twice and sometimes I have to read them 3 times to be sure I have understood each component and how they fit together.
I like your use of metaphor, simile and narrative intertwining.02/08/2017 #29 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#28 I have already tagged you my dear @Lisa Vanderburg

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

I rarely share a buzz more than platform, but I shared your buzz o three platforms and to my followers because it is a great buzz. i invite readers of this buzz to read to the very sound buzz of Sara in the link below:
I plan to respond to your buzz in my next buzz and also elaborate more on this great comment of yours. I say that you are spot on with your comment and I shall share some proofs of its soundness.12/07/2017 #34 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#31 Dear @Sara Jacobovici- I feel from your words the degree with which you like abuzz of mine. This time I felt the warmth more than ever before. As this buzz proved to be a challenge to write, I assure you your comments relieved me more than you can imagine. I say thank you.12/07/2017 #33 Lisa Vanderburg#31 Thank you, lovely @Sara Jacobovici! I try and read the responses - usually after I've commented as I can't be trusted: a huge Scotsman in a group I was talking with once had such a strong accent, I inadvertently picked it up his accent (a natural mimic) until he got a bit miffed and said, 'R ya taakin the pis'?12/07/2017 #32 Sara JacoboviciDear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, I trust that you will not see the cliches but know of my sincerity when I say that, first, I am truly moved, emotionally and physically, by your buzz and, second, that your buzz has left me with thoughts literally moving about my head in a whirl!! I not only read your buzz but the great discussion it inspires. So I have been reading and following the links and videos and have a list of thoughts that I will add to the questions you posed in a comment in another buzz, pull it all together and see what comes out. In the meantime, I just want to add one thing that I was attaching to your ideas while I was reading and that is the concept of memory, as in cellular memory. At that level, the memory can only come from movement and so it must be with human memory. As you point out, we are made up of cells, everything moves and so memory occurs. We have discussed the concept; where there is life, there is movement, in past buzzes. I think this buzz, Dr. Ali, reinforces that concept perfectly.12/07/2017 #31 Sara Jacobovici#11 I do read the comments of the readers of an @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee buzz @Lisa Vanderburg as it never ceases to amaze me how Dr. Ali's work inspires some of the best insights into the discussion. And it is because I do get to read the comments, I was able to read yours. It definitely resonates with me. Thank you.11/07/2017 #28 Tricia Mitchell#27 my pleasure dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I appreciate you enhancing my knowledge. It brings to mind the nights when I would blend with the music, happily lost somewhere between the lyrics, beats and memories that 'anthems' evoked. Strangers would ask what I was smiling at. I'd truly found my bliss point. Enjoy your joyful night ☺11/07/2017 #26 Tricia MitchellI love this buzz. The contrast between the peace lily & reed diffuser image and the psychedelic looking video, the calm stillness versus the kaleidoscope of colours, sound & movement; the link back to your slime buzz; the spiritual aspect - I'm working my way through the FB video... It's delightful and reminds me of the whirling dervishes discussion we had about blending spirituality heaven and earth.
"We are fractal dancers"
A truly fascinating buzz.11/07/2017 #25 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#24 Thank you for your dancing cat metaphor. I shall explore it @Jerry Fletcher. Truly, whatever new idea we may have somebody else must have thought about it. The difference is in experimenting this idea. Great and mind-provoking comment, indeed.11/07/2017 #22 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#20 You are very correct @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. If you would review the lengthy research video in the buzz (the linked one as I couldn't embed it in the buzz) you shall find that the type of dance affects differently the spiritual souls. This research by the way is done by Indian reserches in which they used thermo scanning to study the effect of type of dance on the dancers' spiritual state. Not all dances are the same.
When we affect the energy field of the earth by polluting it it shall in turn affect ours and we may end up dancing madly and deprived of human spirit.11/07/2017 #20 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#8 A nations wealth does not equate with the dance of life if that nation fracks the earth, sends chemical pollutants into the water system, emits damaging gases into the atmosphere, creates weapons for profit that enable destabilized regions, cuts down forests without thought of recycling, reducing the variety of seeds in favour of for-profit seeding, ignores soil nutrition in favour of volume, uses fear and hate as principle instruments of control, controls its working population with the drug of superficial entertainment, engages hypocrisy of laws against corruption while creating national debt as the 1% get richer, and do I have to go on and on about what can potentially get in the way of the dance of life.
The dance of life is for the beautiful souls in the world and there are beautiful souls and these beautiful souls are imprisoned in a really ugly and soul-sucking system - a system that is in need of the dance of life - a dance that takes time to form and then to live unencumbered by human foolishness and short-term thinkers - and when a nations wealth equates with the dance of life, we will all surely know it because there would be no questioning about the dance of life, for it will be as natural as air and not polluted air.11/07/2017 #19 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#18 Basically, we should trust our senses @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee. However; we have a proof to trust our senses even more when we see the invisible. The combination of senses such as seeing and hearing even serve our trust more. So, at least there is proof you are right in trusting your senses and calling others to do the same.11/07/2017 #18 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee that is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing. How wonderful to have technology to shine a light on the invisible. I don't need proof like this to sense energy, I trust my felt sense. Although other people with less developed felt sense and more highly developed sense of sight want visible proof of the unseen. Perhaps that helps some activate the felt sense. There must be so much more that is invisible to our sense of sight.

harkening back to my bad old days as a high school teacher05/07/2017 #28 Anonymous#27 sometimes the most obvious is the least obvious, maybe because we swim in a sea of mind control. I've had the strangest string of odd luck and sad news from home, then back at work to listen to "I hate people" all day long and I think I might let out a Munsch like scream! Aka, I'm feeling so ready for the road today.lol First I have to find my rose coloured glasses, remind myself to stay in my own LOVE people lane, and read your next article. :)05/07/2017 #27 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#25 I did pause for a while, editing that call to action, away from some of the lesser centricities.
It seems so obvious, with just a little reflection, that devaluing life is precisely when we went awry. And then we built systems to keep corporations 'existing' that almost begs these new entities to undermine all organic, sustainable methods of life, living, prospering.
So, I am just going to keep shouting this phrase until the tipping point arrives!
(and of course, this shall be one of our conversation starting t-shirts on the drive to spread love!)04/07/2017 #24 Louise Smith#18 People's lives have become over dependent on $. We hear it everyday from politicians in the media "we have to tighten up our spending and household debt to reduce the budget deficit and go into surplus"
And they almost never do what they say they will and we seem to get into more debt. So much money is wasted on tenders and projects that never eventuate or are thrown out when the government changes. Not to mention costs of stationery, business cards and letterheads that are changed when departments are reviewing their corporate governance structure, renaming, rebranding and restructuring to make it more profitable ! This happened 3 times in 18 months once where I worked. Waste of taxpayers $ that I would prefer to be used to help people in need.04/07/2017 #21 Louise Smith#10 Yes Deb it's the system ! It's hard to fight but creative people manage (I don't mean tax evaders)
My fav things to do are play with my dogs, work in my garden to grow my own food and flowers and hang out with my 7yo nephew !
Almost completely free and no digital or gadgets - quality time instead of throwing $ around.
N.B. Some of my friends complain they can't get me on my mobile for half a day when I garden. It's a mobile free zone !04/07/2017 #20 Louise Smith#8r I have tried from childhood
to NOT be captivated by the design being crafted by the society in and around us
to NOT be a product of the ambiance we are accustomed to
to NOT consider that familiarity breeds security
I don't know if I learnt this or it's part of my personality. Probably both !
But my 3 siblings are all like this. We were taught to be independent and to look after each other and to care for and be kind others.
This has carried through into adulthood for all of us as well.
I was lucky to grow up in a time when people were ordinary not wealthy or megastars,
brand names were nonexistent and peer pressure was not so influential.
I am very grateful for all of these things.
It means I can be content with little and with simple things and with Nature and not be a slave to fashion and fads and media.02/07/2017 #18 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#12 Such a fabulously heart-centric comment, @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador
We need to stop all these aspects of our society that require and cause us to de-identify with ourselves!
Which is not to say we stop teaching children how to collaborate and share in the efforts and spoils of a community.
But our communities should support all members, as they are, in their uniquely expressed glory, rather than try to deviate us all to the norm.
This task isn't even that hard, we have many examples from indigenous societies that supported and accepted all who were born. We chose a path, along the curve of civilization, were we wrongly though alignment would be required. We've now seen how this dampens the joyful living of our lives, so we need to repeal all the ways we regard humans as widgets.02/07/2017 #17 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#8 Thank you for such encouraging words, @debasish majumder - and I share your questions and accept that we are such paradoxical creatures. We are products of all that is around us and yet absolutely, undeniably unique.
I feel that there was a spark in us, as children that should never be extinguished. But that for efficiencies sake, we have may education a place of conforming and memorizing, rather than a place where each person learns how to grow into their own best life.02/07/2017 #16 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#7 It is all about the children, on that we are utterly aligned, @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee. We traveled different paths and approach the REQUIRED change from different angles, but we both demand that we change our world for the betterment of the institution of childhood itself.
Being born, in and of itself, should guarantee a human regardless of nationality, skin color, and parent's economic or mental or physical health, certain rights and protections and avenues for a meaningful life.
We can't ever foresee the true impact of our words, but we can continue choosing to voice all that we have to say that needs to be shared.02/07/2017 #15 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#6 I am excited for that day, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, to meet in person, share a meal, and engage in some soul-nourishing conversations. I am certain that the energy we both invest in our own unique ways to make beBee a global destination will make this meeting a reality, for us and for so many of our fellow worker bees.
We will all be as giddy as kids going to an amusement park.
And that is not a bad phrase to use to start my day -
How can I amuse myself in the joyful cause of making the world a joyful life-centric playground?

Example a song composed in minutes; a painting in hours. I also find a close connection between spontenaity and innocence; how much easier for an innocent child to be spontaneous than a world weary child? Its a truism that we all need to seek our inner child again @Sara Jacobovici.

Yes, many commenters don't tick the like, but they make repeated comments. I believe the comment is more enriching for them. Also, some bees tick the like button, but don't comment. A third point is that the comments count the authors' responses. So, the number of comments might be well-over the likes sometimes.18/05/2017 #55 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianVery thought-provoking.

- 13/05/2017AN ENGINEERING WONDER, THE NEW CROTON DAM
This masonry dam is among the most impressive man-made structures in the world.
When originally constructed in 1906, the New Croton Dam was the largest in the world (91 m high from base to crest). To this day it is the third largest hand-hewn structure in the world, after the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Great Wall of China!!
Its foundation extends 40 m below the bed of the river, and the dam contains 650,000 m3 of masonry.
The original dam was built in 1842. In the 1890s construction on the New Dam was begun to provide more water to New York City. Located near Croton-on-Hudson, New York, the dam has a beautiful waterfall-like spillway and an aerial bridge.
Here is the link to a video about this amazing structure, including a short history lesson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_o2rcMAjLI&t=48s
Comments14/05/2017 #3 Lada 🏡 Prkic#1 Dam engineering has always fascinated me. When you see such massive structure that holds millions of cubic meters of water and hear the roar of the gushing water, you can only respect the ingenuity of engineers who built it, along with the expertise of many skill stonemasons.
I am glad you like the video. This quick look at the dam and its history gives insight into how much the construction is truly magnificent. Thank you for commenting and sharing, Tausif!13/05/2017 #1 Tausif MundrawalaTo marvel at this man made dam I am still coming in terms with my senses. What an excellent creation.

Comments08/05/2017 #34 Sara Jacobovici#32 I like the way you organized your thoughts @Gert Scholtz. In the spirit of philosophy, Aristotle produced the work Problemata; each volume made up of questions related to a topic. He had one on Music and used similar descriptions such as yours, "We improvise, mix tunes and melodies, play in harmony with an orchestra, orchestrate a band..." All musical elements can be found in any aspect of our lives; physical, emotional/psychological, social and spiritual. What I love about the line in Hameroff's quote is that he finds the music in the deepest parts of our brain. His is an inward view while Pythagoras and Plato looked outward; "There is a legend that Pythagoras could hear the 'music of the spheres' enabling him to discover that consonant musical intervals can be expressed in simple ratios of small integers. The tones correlated with the great celestial movements of the day. Pythagoras' concepts were transferred by Plato and others into models about the structure of the universe."08/05/2017 #32 Gert Scholtz@Sara Jacobovici “Consciousness is more like music than computation”. Taking only this words and applying a binary view, as far as this relates to a general business environment, I would say that consciousness alternates between music composition and computational efficiency. Innovation, adapting to change and social interaction is very much a music composing state of consciousness. We improvise, mix tunes and melodies, play in harmony with an orchestra, orchestrate a band, and create new self-awareness and a shared consciousness. But often computational efficiency is required. Quick and correct actions to be implemented, sequential thinking in terms of practicality and experienced cause and effect iterations, and efficiency improvements all are components of computational thinking. So, as far as it relates to business, I would say consciousness alternates between music composition and computation of practicalities.08/05/2017 #31 Harvey LloydConsciousness has implications. If we explain the concept in scientific terms then it is merely a collection of machine parts acting out their natural existence, much as a tree lives. If we explain it spiritual then we leave the tangible and enter the mystic world of understanding human nature.
There is a hitch of course as it seems to be in all human endeavours. Speaking from one perspective or the other we find ourselves in a camp. A camp that is defined by the nature vs nurture discussion. There seems to be a need for many to subscribe that we are one or the other.
I believe your post subscribes to, we are both. Regardless of the one you choose to motivate or propel you forward within a community they both apply at some point. Fact and faith are not necessarily dichotomies.
I see science as drawing a hard line in this mystical area of consciousness because they can't find it under a microscope. I appreciate this point of view as empirical science should be tested and understood wholly. I also see that the line has caused issues as science not only went so far as to say empirically something doesn't exist until proven, but observation of something unproven is bogus.
We can't have it both ways. I can't claim something doesn't exist just because i can't prove it does. I don't know would be the response in such a case. This circular argument is confusing and leaves folks at the altar of science wanting. Philosophy/spiritual is needed to fill in the gaps that science leaves behind.
Science is the "how" and spiritual/consciousness is the "why".08/05/2017 #30 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#25 Thank you @Sara Jacobovici. You surely swim in the sea of music.
My last comment had two linguistic mistakes, which I am sure you detected (studies instead of studied and o instead of to).
I have a question here. Why do we spot our mistakes only after publishing comments? Is it because we think we proof read while our minds are busy in publishing the comments? Do we dance to the music of mistakes? This happens to me frequently and I am trying to find out why. I was even considering publishing a buzz on this issue.08/05/2017 #29 Sara Jacobovici#24 Thanks for highlighting the music metaphor @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. When it comes to music and consciousness, music is perceived at every level or state of consciousness. Although music is seen as a skill, or related to a "talent", elements of music appear in every aspect of our lives; physical, emotional/psychological, social and spiritual. Many scientists are also musicians. “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” ― Albert Einstein08/05/2017 #25 Sara Jacobovici#19 Dear @Milos Djukic, thank you for your comment and generous words. You write, "Freedom of self-expression is worth fighting for, that is the essential meaning of the self - similarity concept." In the many discussions about purpose, identity, self, and community, I think this line captures what is at the core and heart of it all. Thanks again.08/05/2017 #24 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee@Sara Jacobovici- this buzz is worthy of repeated visits. This time I paused on your last paragraph and mainly the point "Consciousness is more like music than computation."
You studies music and I wonder how it added to your consciousness. I only enjoy music; otherwise I know nothing. Had I had the opportunity to study music how would have it affect my consciousness is a question that I find no answer o.07/05/2017 #22 Gert Scholtz@Sara Jacobovici Your words "The rising demand for both creative and concrete problem-solving as well as abstract and strategic thinking indicates the necessity to broaden the reflectivity-horizon of the narrow business perspective that future business leaders will determine their decisions within." lays the ground for an excellent post and discussion.07/05/2017 #20 AnonymousFor the right of free speech is worth fighting for in social media and networks:
"Writing and Editorial Board in Social Networks", beBee article:
"The willingness to answer boldly and the willingness to be corrected correspond, respectively, to bravery and temperance“ - Malcolm S. Brown
Of course we must be careful what we write, always.07/05/2017 #19 AnonymousDear @Sara Jacobovici, I wrote about the relationship between science and philosophy in 2015 on LinkedIn. On that occasion in the section entitled: "Science and Philosophy -Self-similarity concept" I emphasized that the apparent separation and relocation of scientists from philosophy is a fatal mistake. Maybe, Mr. Albert Einstein did not have with whom to share their philosophical dilemmas and insights during their old age. This is not surprising having in mind the presence of the extraordinary woman beside him: Mrs. Mileva Einstein - Maric; “The Sixth Element“. Yet, Einstein asked her for a divorce in 1919. It was a fatal mistake and probably the reason why he had not finished an ultimate innovation. Freedom of self-expression is worth fighting for, that is the essential meaning of the self - similarity concept. As we get older the desire for freedom is growing. During childhood, usually we are fully self-similar. Nevertheless, fragments tend to become scattered with time and due to the accumulation of conflicting experiences. Then, targeted interactions with people, adds up all again. That's what you said so eloquently in this excellent article and thank you so much for that. I call it virtual synchronicity or a fractal alignment (I'm not the only one).

Comments05/05/2017 #56 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAMy parents instilled within us the importance of respecting others. Your article points out - without belaboring the fact - before we can respect others we must respect self. In respecting self we are able - as your 3 short - but invaluable statements conspicuously point out - 1. Treat others as I would love them to treat me; 2. Do what you have passion for and act on it; 3. In serving others I serve myself". Thanks for another wonderful share, Ali. You are an example, to us all, of a life well-lived. And still working on refining it!!05/05/2017 #55 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#53 My dear friend @David Navarro López- we have been connected on social media for more than six years now. During this period we developed enough trust between us even to exchange our private concerns. So, your comments have their unique value to me. Your comment here is so pleasing because I know it comes from your own experiences. You put in it a practical meaning. Yes, we set the rules for our behaviors and these rules later shape our behavior and even unknown and unexpected results. I know even in the darkest our something great out of nowhere emerges. I know one thing for sure- love for your manners and human quality fill my heart towards you.05/05/2017 #53 AnonymousWhat do I think? That you have described with very little and wise words something I have tried to explain many times, which is, the path my parents taught me and I have been following mainly due to some inculcated instinct. Many times we have concurred in similar questions along with many posts, on which I always wanted to escape from being tightened to patterns, claiming that putting my energies on stitching to high human values instead of trying to discover a formula or a pattern that explains the human behaviour was the wise thing to do.
Human behaviour is by far one of the most complex issues we can face. In order to master it, instead of trying to understand it, we need to make it happen, that is, overwhelming our soul with the things we decide we want to have in our life, and our path on it will have no other option than following the rules we imposed. If we target love, love is what we are going to get.
Bravo Ali, you are the one.05/05/2017 #49 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#46 Thank you dear @debasish majumder for raising the what I call "The greedy passion" to destroy our earth with purposelessness.

I hope My answer suffice your question, Sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee04/05/2017 #47 Harvey LloydYour rules are everlasting in nature. Within our life we see through filters, either by design or by reaction. When we design our filters ourselves as your rules would imply, we see in life what is real and not necessarily what is presented. When our filters are designed by our experiences and needs then we often take what is presented at face value.
Your questions are ones of a wise man who has experienced much and wants to share that experience and wisdom with others.

However; you exceeded my expectation by "putting my best foot forward and be all Ican be". This is an organic comment, to borrow the term from the comment of @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I like also your two-ways approach to purpose "I believe our purpose in life finds us as much as we may endeavor to find our purpose". A very profound comment indeed04/05/2017 #43 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorI agree with your three simple rules. Rule #2 is quite interesting because it is subject to change, as we change. During our journey, our passions may take a different a path and that's okay because as we mature, our path and purpose change as well. With that said, I believe our purpose in life finds us as much as we may endeavor to find our purpose. We, however, have to open minded, accepting and mindful of others. Our passion and our purpose should not just be for ourselves but for the betterment of our world and all that it encompasses.
I find this buzz very inspiring, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee because it makes us want to put our best foot forward and be all we can be.04/05/2017 #42 CityVP 🐝 ManjitAll three of these rules are organic intent. We live in a world of manufactured happiness, manufactured purpose and manufactured image. We must surely want organic intent because otherwise why create the word "organization"? In all three things whether it is happiness, purpose or authenticity, these are outcomes of organic intent. Does life throw supreme challenges and unexpected moments at us? For sure and when life does, we remember that we are an organism and not a mechanical construction and the way back where there is one, is in being in touch with our organic being and its inner wisdom.04/05/2017 #39 Louise Smith#37 Yes I think it takes a number of decades to get to be content with your/one's self.
But that's ok as the process is as important as the product.
Just as sometimes the journey is just as, if not more important than the destination.
