Nuggets of Wisdom

Nuggets of Wisdom

I have been honored by a considerable number of comments on my buzzes. Some comments carried gems with them. I extracted some gems and compiled them as Nuggets of Wisdom. I have plans to write Part 2; however I wanted first to probe your reactions to the idea of this buzz. I know there are many buried gems waiting for extraction, but they shall be.

beBee is a great platform to allow for such high level of exchanging minds. Compiling scattered gems may lead to the emergence of new ideas, thoughts and concepts. I hope this idea appeals to all bees and that they too start on compiling gems from the comments they receive.

"When we look at nature we get a sense that the Past, Present and Future are one in the same"- Harvey Lloyd

I think that the word that applies here in connection with the movement discussed is "comfort zone". We establish an area in which we assume we have control when in reality all we have is familiarity- Sara Jacobovici

"You can't live in the future but you can live in the past. Similarly, you can't change your past but you can change your future"- James O'Connell

"Does a tree respond to some outside influences automatically and to others by sensing, experimenting, connecting with other plants and communicating to create an adaptation? I don't know the answer, but, what I like is musing on questions where the answer is yet to be found. Maybe it is important not to necessarily know the answer, but, to know that living, animate beings in nature all have soem form of consciousness and creativity"- Deb Lange

"We are within the trees, and the trees are within us"- Irene Hackett

"We're good at developing things that wipe out the bad stuff but unfortunately take all the good stuff with it. Seems the art of selectivity of trees has out done the science of man"- Sara Jacobovici

"The reason we struggle so much is we want to narrow down cause to one big bang or a few logical inputs but life is organic and in flux. An answered question today may need to be answered differently tomorrow based on what occurred overnight. We experience this all the time"- Deb Helfrich.

"Tree leaves speak in whispers. I grew up talking to them"- Melissa Hefferman

 "I love trees. Each and every tree has multiple personalities. A tree can be lush and green and reflect the glorious sunlight making us happy. A tree can be bare and frail making us sad. A can be in covered in delicate blooms making us think of new life"- Franci Eugenia Hoffman

"Whoever learns how to listen to trees, can learn the truth about life"- Amina Alami

"The sophistication of trees lies in their ability to move with the wind, like organizations that are able to bend with the market trend"- Mohammed Sultan

"I think “Mother Nature” is creative and all she has created is part of creativity. I think for human creativity, our ability to imagine is the sole criteria. We can imagine without creating, but we can’t create without imagination"- Sara Jacobovici

 "Are some tree types more creative than others"? - John Rylance

"We need new symbols, metaphors to begin to impregnate our body/mind/energy with ways of being that we are a part of nature. We are integrally connected to nature, as we are nature too, but we have separated ourselves from"- Deb Lange

"…trees exist in stillness peacefully and yet are so much at work - creating that which it needs, which in turn, creates that which all of life needs - reminds me that creativity occurs naturally and for good reason"- Irene Hackett

"Every tree produces fruits that someone will like. There is never a reason for zealously. If two trees produce the same kind of apple they will taste different. Trying to hinder other tree´s growth will only make our own fruits taste bitter"- Aurorasa Sima

"If we can learn to flow, or to swim, changing our responses as we encounter the different states, then we will become resilient"- Deb Lange

"It is impossible for a cell to be evolved alone! The external factors are very important in order to make an idea enriched according to me"! - Jeet Sarkar

"The past is gone but obviously impacted the future, and the present. I feel being immersed fully in the edge of the present offers an advantage of using what we learned and applying this to what we want to learn"- Franci Eugenia Hoffman

"The irony of our age is that we are becoming more innovative as a human race yet also less adaptive"- CityVP Manjit

"The edges we choose to be on should be the ones that enable us to search , learn and adapt rather than adjust"- Fatima Williams

"As long as we don't isolate a state of being, an idea, experience or learning, but move it with us, carry it over, that is when the sum becomes larger than the parts. That's when we become whole"- Fatima Williams

"The very act of cleaning could be as well a contaminant, if the criteria are wrong"- David Navarro López

 "Let's clean the ours "rooftops/brains" with the soap of colorful and cheerful thinking so we can be wrap around in the brilliant colors of life and allow them to wrap our"- Emilia M. Ludovino

"Our brains have become the battlefield of right and wrong. This mash up seems to divide us and nature does provide the solution, if only we would listen"- Harvey Lloyd

"…there is so much hype about negative stuff in this world that we have perhaps forgotten to record our happy hours"- Anandhi Krishnan

"Then she whispered in my little ear it's raining my dear because God is washing all the negativity away"- Loribeth Pierson

"A tree works great in a forest but if the trees grow too close to one another sometimes they will compete for limited resources which can even hinder their growth"- Aurorasa Sima

Whatever our joys, they vanish with the crowd at the end of the day. Grieves don't vanish with the crowd, but in loneliness"- Mohammed Sultan

 "…it may be something we do that feels so simple, yet could have a ripple effect!"- Lisa Gallagher

"Social media is a virtual mirror of the real world or reality and variety is its very essence"- Praveen Raj Gullepalli

"We are inundated daily by traditional media, our social media "feeds" and all of the other "stuff" this life throws our way"- Aaron Skogen

"…it's again a matter of realization that there are processes at work in nature all the time - and however small or big - these stimuli create an impact only after repeated acts of persistence"- namita sinhanamita sinha

 "Future leadership is about social complexity with a growing trend of social encounters and exchanges"- Milos Djukic

Dear Ali, I am honored to be on your listing, at the look of so much talent and wisdom here, even if my contribution is so small. Wish I would have made more comments to your last posts, but as you already know, I do not use to make comments unless I did not understand firstly, and meditated about the running issue, and it will take some time for me to be capable to understand them, as your posts are lately out of the bounds of my possibilities. Sorry for that.

Clarisse Nigaud

Dr. Anani, your post is appreciated profoundly. Most peoples would go online fishing for ideas, rebuff them and post an article under their names. You show in reverse, appreciate great ideas into a pot of gold! Warm Regards.
This comment was made on G+. I find it very relevant to share here. WE learn and progress by digesting ideas and not by stealing them. I am profoundly grateful to Clarisse as much as I am to everyone of you who helped me move forward. The least I could do is to say thank you and this is the nugget of wisdom that helped me improve.
