    Maybe i am wrong but since @Ali Anani made observations on @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. I see a reflection of her style here, maybe an affinity type of reflection which blends with your style of writing.

    Maybe when @Ali Anani writes about you, i would begin to see your reflections across many other writers.

    Just saying that the observations have made me aware of the subtle and blended aspects.

    BRAVO! I feel every tiny nuance of these words on the flow of emotion, @๐Ÿ Fatima G. Williams

    The human condition seems utterly summed up by this quote:

    "She was caught up in that moment. The moment had gone."

    We simply cannot capture moments.

    But for some reason, we often lose ourselves in just such a pursuit.

    If so, Pascal, then I choose to be identifiable Dungeness, not non-descript bits for a Thermador dish. Often, from the top of the mountain, the climb seems small and meaningless. And one has a hard time remembering why one chose to climb in the first place. But that is a symptom of the human condition. A very moving reflection. Thanks.

    @Pascal Derrien this was SO powerful and extremely profound. "What do you say?" Sometimes nothing is better than saying something one might regret. There is no right or wrong when a person is dying, at least that's what I've been telling myself since we lost my mom to cancer. As for the other things you mentioned, wow... I wish more people would understand that. There is no need to be mean to anyone on Social Media. There is no need to be mean to others in real life. Memories made are treasures we can't replace but material items can always be replaced. Society has become so money driven and some people place more emphasis on being rich and having klout vs. putting their fellow humans first. I'm sorry someone close to you was just diagnosed. Let me end this by stating, I've met some people who do very well in life but they still find time to put others first and they take that seriously. We need to focus on the good around us.

    Bravo @Pascal Derrien This one is a killer. Because of the facts you just outlined.

    "Why do people do this to themselves, why do they fall in those superficial life traps when really every single one of us no matter how successful, stupid, cocky or in worst case ignorant of its own individuality realize we are just the same when it comes to mortality. Why do we praise the trivial when it is so superficial?"

    Why couldn't we all be in the Graden of eden ? eh ?

    Hi Pascal

    I think you wrote down well what happened to you.
    I could feel your distress.

    You might like to consider
    - when you are first confronted with these situations for the very first time, you will be at a loss and in shock
    - You may then be dealing with
    * Feelings of helplessness and inadequacy which can become anger and and guilt
    * Anticipatory grief: a grief reaction that occurs before an impending loss.
    Typically, the impending loss is a death of someone close due to illness
    but it can also be experienced by dying individuals themselves.

    Can you remember the first funeral you went to ? What did you do? How did you feel?
    And fast forward to a time when you had been to a number of funerals.
    What was different?

    It's like anything, the first time is the hardest but then you establish coping strategies.
    So even if the event is terrible, you are as much at a loss even if you have strong feelings.


    Often what to do is really simple.
    Just be there. You donโ€™t need to talk all the time, itโ€™s the companionship that is most appreciated.

    This is helpful:

    Holy crab! You shook the meat out of the Sunday just then Pascal! ;)

    The meandering stream of consciousness brings inevitability in;
    Just when another new journey into the unknown could well begin.

    Perhaps pain is the way out into the new,
    Making amends with the life of pleasure we generally lead;
    For we've been looking away from all where attention is due,
    Stopping to smell the roses only when we hurt and bleed.

    Donna,
    Well said. I would add one role to the C-suite which, in mid size companies, is difficult to fill. That would be a CIO or Chief Information Officer. There is a revolution going on, a Digital Transformation, which requires someone that understands business and technology. They are in very short supply. And until the organization has a competent person in that role the team is incomplete in my view. And the CEO hunkering down might want to make finding that individual a primary objective.

    Since I love the water so much, I was immediately reminded of ripples on the surface, as Randall pointed out. :-) It's really easy to see on calm waters - the ripples spread far, quickly. But even in tumultuous water, the ripples still happen. In fact, no amount of turmoil is enough to prevent them, it just takes more to over-power the waves. I guess the point is, there's no circumstance in which circles of compassion fall flat - they will always have an impact, even if just a small start.

    This is great Savvy, the imagery of

    "Every compassionate thought that is then spread out will have the strength of its own circles of trust in the boundless infinity of love."

    is reminiscent of the ripples flowing away from a pebble dropped into water; such passive effort creating "waves" of influence.

    A wonderful description of Karma

    The world can turn cruel any instant when times go bad.
    Rather than seeking in anchor, if one becomes an anchor during troubled times, the cruelty is just a phase, one gets surrounded by whats within.

    Beautiful writing. A lot to contemplated on a Saturday evening.

    Dear @ Chris Guest - great post and good on you for wanting to explore your creativity through music and analogy and story. To answer your question re filters requires a longer post. But quickly, thete is gold to be found within what may have occurred that we call negative. Of course we need to discern how to move away from abuse, but events in life with people that may surface conflict are often a pond to swim in for awhile, to clean away the murky waters, find the gold and sense the transformation from within and without. Great topic for another post.

    Ah, the loss of innocence and suppression of memories! The latter being attempted many many times by myself and I find the subconscious is a powerful adversary!

    "Against the Wind" awesome song. I believe the song certainly speaks to life's push. But I think the real element is desire. A heart that desires is a motivated heart.

    The reward is less climactic than the desire

    Desire ignores negatives and pursues the goal

    Great song, great view and post, thanks @Ali Anani for the tag

    Glad @Ali Anani brought your post to my attention @Chris Guest. I echo the comments from your readers, especially @David Navarro Lรณpez and @Susan Rooks. From my perspective, filtering, as in protection against something "toxic" is important, but "negative" doesn't necessarily mean harmful. As difficult as it may be to have the negative experience, used wisely, it sure can make us learn about how to enable future positives.

    For me, the most interesting part was at the end, with your brief mention of filters, @Chris Guest. These words " . . . is possible to condition the mind to retain only the positive in life and leave the rest behind?" got me thinking about only remembering the positives, and I realized I don't want to totally forget the negatives. I don't want to focus on them, but I think I have learned more from them than from the positives, given the pain that negatives can cause. Who wants to repeat pain?

    A really good post, and I'm glad I found it, even though I don't know how. Maybe I saw @Ali Anani's share? If so, thanks, @Ali Anani!

    Thank you dear @Ali Anani for calling my attention to this wonderful post.
    We might be able to filter negativity consciously. I am not too sure if this can be completely achieved when it has to do with our subconscious mind. We should be able to learn from both, negative and positive because we inevitably are exposed to both of them. In other words, to make an unbreakable filter for negativity could be an exhausting and almost impossible task. Using our energy to let it flow and learn from it, like the wise example of the coffee filter, could be the key.

    Thank you Sara, your reply has made me reconsider my original comment. As someone who doesn't believe in absolutes it would be fairer to say if offering choices I would only offer ones I was happy with, if I am offered choices I am not comfortable with I either decline or negotiate. As to illusion I take your point and agree with your comments on it. However something which comes to mind is the illusionist/magician, who make people believe they have made a choice. The choices we make are often knowingly or unknowingly influenced by others. #34

So definitely agree, " Power within the choice is the choice." 2 - In my writing on choice, on my rough draft, I cut and pasted the following from Deuteronomy Chapter 30:19, " This day, I call upon the heaven and the earth as witnesses [that I have warned] you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. You shall choose life, so that you and your offspring will live." Agreed again, "Choose life".

    #20 Thank you @John Rylance for your comment. I'd like to respond to two points I read in it. One, "Never offer someone a choice you can't live with." Has me thinking....it's a sensitive point. It makes me think that if the individual makes a choice you can't live with then that will definitely influence the future of the relationship. Two, I can so relate to the frustration of the choices with strings or limited choices, but I am not sure I agree with choice as an illusion because I can still choose whether to get the car or not, or go to another dealer, or wait for an alternative. Not happy about the circumstances, but the choice is very real and still mine.

    Mysterious --yet who can deny it's tangibility?

    There is no yardstick --no altimeter to inform/quantify the distance twixt engagement's eternal meaning ....resonating, quivering subjective sensations
    and...

    ... the sea level atmospheric pressure at some blindfolded choice...
    ...of Cartesian abscissa/ordinate intersection...
    ...what Euclidean plane can explain...
    ...the shrinking distance between the crow's nest of the mast...

    The Smoke that Thunders
    The Smoke that ThundersThere is one place in Africa I would visit again and again. The Victoria Falls. More than once I have been there. Each time I experience the scenery and adventure of the environment anew. It is a symphony of nature.ย  The Falls As I stand on...

    #48 LOL, I remember it being a slow, bumpy, ride. @Don ๐Ÿ Kerr in total agreement with you about the people in the pool, I couldn't either!

    @Gert ๐Ÿ Scholtz Almost messed my trousers looking at the folks in the pool. N.E.V.E.R. could I be cajoled into taking that plunge. However, the Falls do look absolutely spectacular, the rafting looks energizing and the golf brilliant. Thanks for sharing.

    This is absolutely spectacular @Gert ๐Ÿ Scholtz It's feels a bit overboard but I wouldn't mind getting on that boat now that I don't drown ๐Ÿ˜†. The river rafting sounds crazy a must try. Thank you for sharing this amazing experience with us. A trip of a lifetime I must say.

    I got air sick just looking at the ultra-lights! I'll let you tell me all about it Gert! Though I would love to walk along that path/bridge I saw in one picture, I'll leave the jumping into the pool for the younger, stronger ;-). Thank you for sharing this adventure with us, simply spectacular! So glad I found this post on Twitter! I missed it here.

    #44 @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher Riding an elephant absolutely counts! As long as whatever you ride has legs and not wheels, a "wild ride" it is.

    #9 @David B. Grinberg @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher It looks like I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie after all. Now what is my next kick - with a barrel over the falls? Nope. Rather leave that one to those who did it at the Niagara falls. Thanks David and Lisa for joining the thread and enjoying the trip with me.

    Aahah ... Sure @Gert ๐Ÿ Scholtz it's wonderful to do crazy things sometimes :) - but that stream is really scary. Now, playing golf with the giraffes sounds great, at least I have someone to blame for my bad game :))). Have a wonderful weekend!

    #32 My Dear Livingstone, your messenger arrived today, having taken a short cut (and hence saving several months) by sailing down the Nile in a following wind, assisted by the presence of several very large crocodiles nipping at his rudder. He then risked life and limb on shore, travelling on one of those modern land yacht contraptions, aided by a prolonged three day sand storm. The poor fellow arrived looking extremely haggard but is recovering well, and was last seen being fed dates by a passing group of belly dancers. Tempting though your sincere invitation may be, to journey to shady and cooler climes and partake in an abundant of fresh water, particularly as I am currently camped between oases, I am temporarily without means of transportation, since we are becalmed, my camel somewhat has the hump with me, and I am the guest speaker at a succession of local bedouin feasts. I swear that if I see another sheep's eye winking at me from a bowl of desert stew, I shall not be responsible for my actions. I trust that the old lion wound in your arm is no longer troubling you and hope that our paths will cross soon. I remain, sir, your most obedient servant. TE Lawrence.

    Haunted By The Unexplainable.She was home. The day had just arrived. The coffee machine was willing to serve. A comfortable sound. Tasty croissants. Oh that scent. Seducing. The oven still warm. In the corner of the kitchen someone watched over her shoulders. A sudden noise....
