    Changing Paths- is it a choice?I was watching a nice video on the movement of light balls in a cup filled with varying amounts of water. If the cup is half-filled the light balls line up at the peripheral of the cup. In contrast, when the cup is filled to the brim the balls...

    #17 Dear @Jean L. Serio- your comment is so rich and powerful and the answers you give are wise. I take, for example, hives on beBee. I could stick to one hive and feel safe. If this prolongs then the hive could become a comfort zone. I find it necessary to join other hives even though one would be stranger sitting in the sidelines. But this time could be the time to ponder on issues that hang in the head. Sometimes a random effect would send us to the edge.
    I am always baffled by your comprehension as reflected in your sound comments. This one is no exception.

    An interesting question, Ali Anani - Should we stay with the flow or become independent? I'm sure there are those who would agree there are times in life when we should stick 'with the flow'; and others when we should move on (beyond) the group (whoever that group is) and become independent. Sticking with a group doesn't always help us grow in ways which allow us to flourish and succeed. As our life changes, I believe different groups appeal to us. Perhaps networking with several groups is better than sticking with just one. Over the years you may simply outgrow a group and no longer have anything in common, and while still considered a member, you rarely attend gatherings. So while technically having the bond, you have moved to the sidelines and become independent of them.

    You touched my heart with your comment @M铆riam Caro L贸pez. You are the present not only in time, but also to get to know you is also a wonderful present.
    The tension you have between your devotion to family and love to continue with your study is a bifurcation point in your life. To live the present we do our best to compromise and "comes what comes". I a a strong believer of this. I said once we are all like farmers who plant almonds trees. The farmer does his best to create the best growing environment for the trees. His efforts are producing the almonds flowers. Only then for a wind to blow them away. What the farmer do?
    I don't see the river alone and you made me see more of it.

    Fryday, thinking introspectively, and writing in English, too much for me... (so please, excuse my mistakes)
    Do I do what I, younger, wanted to be doing by now? Am I who I wanted to be? Did I really choose? So many and so small details led us here. Because life is happening now, in the present. Past is something to keep in mind for learning from, and future is just a dream. And we all must be thanked for what we learnt and what we have; I feel so.
    But as I work, I have a family to take care of, and I have deciced to study again, many times I wonder about my decisions and my present, why do I keep my job?, am I studing enough? should I play more with my son? what do I need to learn?
    I guess no fish sees the whole river along. So we all try to do what we can.
    My yoga master often says something like Give your best and leave the rest to Universe, and so I know many people "leaving to Universe", but I'm more for giving my best. I think I know which drops I'm stuck, and which drops I would change for a new path. How could I not to try?

    I have taken many directions in my life. Directions deviated by the "flow," but all in the same course--advocacy. Rather than by choice, I have been driven to do so. Your view is enticing as I try to envision myself as a water droplet on a leaf. At times I have merged with others only to find myself a victim of soap in the end. But perhaps not, for when I reach out to other droplets whose flow I have influenced, they are still there and encouraging me in my despair. I can think of one droplet in particular. Perhaps the "soap" is of my own making.

    #2 Dear @Ali 馃悵 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I believe the message of love writes itself. These verses from Maya Angelou's Still I Rise feel like a poignant reminder to choose love each time fear and hatred rear their ugly heads:

    Just like moons and like suns,
    With the certainty of tides,
    Just like hopes springing high,
    Still I鈥檒l rise.
    ...
    You may shoot me with your words,
    You may cut me with your eyes,
    You may kill me with your hatefulness,
    But still, like air, I鈥檒l rise.

    #1 Thank you @Devesh 馃悵 Bhatt. The only reason I felt the need to write this post is because there are quiet a few people whom I know who use this phrase more as a shield to avoid conversations and even mask the most trivial of activities by saying that they are busy. The term itself has become such that even kids have started using it to postpone their chores. Like you said, you are genuinely busy and you acknowledged the need of following up. How many people actually take the pain of following up? That is what I tried to address.

    This topic has many posts. I never liked a single one of them until now. Simply because this has an element of introspection in it.

    You have applied it to your life before stating it for others, hence it is not a presumption.

    Honestly, i use the words "i am busy" because i am genuinely busy but it takes mutual understanding and consistency in following up that works. It is best to inform some people of the busy-ness beforehand.

    On a different note, being always there when needed is at best a conviction, a promise can have very regretable consequences.

    Such an imaginative story for 2 Aussie girls - the dragon's wish to meets kangaroos

    Perhaps this is your wish reflected too !

    "The entrepreneur smiled as he saw Matadel. "You are invited to come along with us, Matadel, Australia is waiting for you!", said the entrepreneur.
    Matadel was so happy that his wings made some sort of applause. He did not hesitate one second and jumped on board of the drone."

As Bees we can't motivate other bees, but we can inspire them. This is why I love to create honey. I may write something today that could inspire someone years from now. My goal is to throw out the seeds, and tend the fields of others by sharing and leaving my comment on their profiles. Their inspiration can also reach those who need it.

    It is not so much my feelings that this buzz touches, as it is my thinking and I would not have found Giroux video interview with Bill Moyers based on his book "Zombie Politics and Culture in the Age of Casino Capitalist" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_FP-7_UUNI had I not had my thoughts triggered by the words in the title "Wake Up Call". The learning I speak of here is a wake up call to our own selves but just as much maybe we are engaged in sensory overload from media engagement.

    Giroux to boot now has moved to Canada and operates out of McMaster University. The chief difference today is that the horror is not happening in a remote region of Africa which was not afforded media coverage and which had no way to touch our sensibilities, but now across the border in the United States in the most media inundated time in human history, and unless we turn that media off, we are flooded by news that can overwhelm our nervous system. That effect also is a personal learning. Close

    The reaction that was planned for choosing Virginia is what the alt-right planners wanted, the death of Heather Heyer may have subdued the reaction of what the organizers wanted, because this how I see this is that this protest was set up for violence. The organizers see their supporters as "atomized" which means they expect their movement to grow.

    Vice news has captured the full horrifying extent of what is in the process of development. What the 22 minute news report shows that this infection is much deeper than even we can possibly imagine

    Vice News - via Esquire
    http://www.esquire.com/news-politics/videos/a57009/charlottesville-vice-documentary/

    Do you think Trump did this? Trump got elected because this is already there, that is the most horrifying aspect to this.

    If this vice news article does not wake America up, what will?

    The America People have had many times to have an awakening. What our country need is a Spiritual awakening. So many citizens of America have forgotten that they are America. The government is nothing but a voice of the people, and yet they are choosing it speak for them.
    If you or I do not like what someone in position in doing, than we use our power of our vote and elect someone to speak for else. For example, over half the people I know complaining about society today, do not ever even vote.
    Most importantly, change in America does not start at the top, yet at the bottom. It starts in our homes. Even if everything was perfect tomorrow in the United States, this country would be in same situation decades from now. People refuse to learn from history.
    My job is first as a husband, and a father. When I am in-line with my priorities, everything else falls in place. So many families are broken and youth have no guidance or purpose. I believe the greatest driving force of mankind is to find a purpose in life. If they can鈥檛 find a purpose, they will blindly follow anything or anyone just to have that feeling to belong. This is why their are so many gangs and other type of groups.
    Humans are naturally selfish and we tend to put our earthly desires first. This is very hard for helping our country. We all will need to help somewhere. This means maybe giving up something we enjoy doing? I now have a family, so I game up video games. I have to give up my "Peter Pan life" to become a husband and father. The question is, "What are you willing to sacrifice to help?"

    I respect your humanity Jim, and you have made it clear that which constitutes a human being.

    The metro post article below shows horrifying pictures of people flying in the air as that car hit them so if you are sensitive to that don't scroll past the first four pictures of armed militia. http://metro.co.uk/2017/08/13/white-supremacist-militia-seen-patrolling-charlottesville-rally-with-assault-rifles-6849661/

    These militia groups have been training for decades and while even some of these groups condemned what the alt-right lunatics did in Charlotteville, and their foundation is seen by them as values stemming from the American constitution. It will anger them to define a America that does not include them and for decades they have not been a problem.

    As a separate stream there is the Anarchists Cookbook http://www.thedailybeast.com/the-anarchist-cookbook-authors-last-confession-it-fills-me-with-remorse and here in the past we saw Waco and The Oklahoma Bombing. It does not take much for different groups to use media the way ISIS already do and when these things happen under a new American dictator, unfortunately it may be that your wife is seeing the tip of the iceberg and so I hope that the response now is a roll back of what could escalate into something far worse.

    During the Obama administration what people did not pick up on is that gun control led to the largest increase in weapon sales on record, the narrative that we hear today was being played out back then, but no one took notice of what was growing under the surface. Now that it is beginning to poison discourse and beginning to erupt, lets hope that wiser heads come to the fore and settle this thing down, because otherwise, it is a quite unthinkable proposition.

    Beautiful poem - very fitting at this time. Charlottesville hit me deeply too; the last straw somehow. The final bugle call to what used to be such potential in the US. I applaud you not giving up just yet. I recall I wrote something in the early 80s about America still in its adolescence (compared to the ancient and somewhat curmudgeonly Europeans), with all the eagerness, passion and energy afforded their age. Downside was the normal 'growing pains' and a little bit too trigger-happy, but the upside was the wonder and enthusiasm that of a life ahead. Too much horror and hatred; I hope American will recover. Thanks @Jim Murray

    "...the world will not let them succeed". Well put Jim. (The rest of the poem is great too).

    My better half and I live in Charlottesville for close to 2 years. At the time, it seemed to be an oasis of rational thought and reason, without the overt tensions of racial divide that seemed so prevalent in other parts of the region. Along with the tragedy of the events this past weekend, it is sad that such a place has now been branded in such a negative way.
