Comments20/08/2017 #7 Harvey LloydUnfortunately this "story" was very challenging to my faith, which i share with you. Although your points may be accurate in pointing fingers at today's media emphasized ills.......The contract or as stated Biblical, the covenant we are under is not accurately portrayed.
I would suggest a new journey within the Bible that exposes the covenant and its meaning would be helpful.
I would suggest some reading of the timing of Jesus and the Roman Empire that existed.
Also to understand who Jesus was during this time. See if you can fit your "story" biblically within context. I would suggest not. Remember Barabbas?
A brief understanding of Revelations 2:1 would go a long way.
God has made His covenant (contract) this is unimpeachable and unconditional. Your diatribe is not only impeachable with apathy but also conditional.
No man will escape the curse of the apple. But only grace can lift it.20/08/2017 #5 Tricia MitchellI read this because my dear friend @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee shared it. Wow! I'm surprised that one person can hold so much judgement and anger towards their fellow (wo)men, before projecting it, along with shame, guilt, etc. while attempting to maintain the moral/religious high ground. Calling people dumb and stupid doesn't make the name caller any better. You lift people up, in the name of God, not stomp on them. The message merely gets tarnished with the author's bitterness (unless that's the intention).
Although I'm not religious, I was obsessed about being born in Revelation i.e. what's happening now isn't "right", but we've known where it's been heading for a while.20/08/2017 #3 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeWho isn't guilty? We are all to varying degrees. To blame one side without understanding the root causes is simply a formula for more destruction of the world.
Instead of solving issues we tend to blow them out of proportion. Upon reading the comment of @Brian McKenzie#1 I just want to ask one question- how many million Moslems are there and how many of them commit murders? In percentage wise I have no doubt it shall be a low percentage.
We are all guilty @Kim Wheeler and it doesn't help if we blame one side and forget the other. So, what you wrote is balanced for me because you didn't selectively blame one side. I wish your next dream would be about finding a way to eradicate the roots causes of all the evils that you mentioned in your important buzz.20/08/2017 #1 Brian McKenzieI remember signing no such contract.
You conveniently forgot the 5 wars that Obama either perpetuated, enabled or started

Comments19/08/2017 #34 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#33 My dear @namita sinha- I didn't respond immediately to your wonderful comment because you got me thinking on the intuition-purpose relationship. Do we need to rely on intuition to define our purpose in life? I reviewed my life meanwhile and I say daringly that yes I do. You wrote "...and the paths we take are impacted by this universal presence of all - what matters is our awareness and honouring of our intuition.. vis-a-vis, our own bigger purpose within this vast expanse ...". Is it intuition versus purpose or intuition that helps us find our purpose? I would love to hear about your own experience.
As for synchronicity I find this happening with few bees here. That this happens between the two of us doesn't surprise me anymore.
To what degree intuition shapes us is a great point that you raise and is worthy of more pondering on.
I can't express enough my appreciation of your comment.19/08/2017 #33 namita sinha@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee , Great metaphor again Sir , and as always it has been a matter of synchronicity that when my own thoughts were on a similar tangent, did I come across your post.
Yes, indeed at times, there are some of those crucial moments of self discovery and awareness of the big picture ,which propel us towards an altogether different path...whether it happens as a choice always or a calling of the Universe is worth contemplating ! Also, as correctly hinted, being or not being a part of a hive or a group. determines a lot - the path we embark on...
I would then say its a case of all of us being interconnected at all times, and at some crucial points almost in separable , though we may not be consciously aware , and definitely our choices and the paths we take are impacted by this universal presence of all - what matters is our awareness and honouring of our intuition.. vis-a-vis, our own bigger purpose within this vast expanse ...
I am not sure whether I have led to some direction , but these are random thoughts crossing my mind...19/08/2017 #31 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#24 Dea2 @Lisa Vanderburg- You really put a smile on my face with your very deep; yet humorous comment.

Thank you @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador and I feel I need to jump into water having had my toes in the warm and clean waters of your comment. Great analogy and deep thinking is what your comment reflects.19/08/2017 #26 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#20 Wonderful mind you have dear @Tricia Mitchell. Again, it is a balance between being self-dependent and belonging to a group. I wish that dear @Sara Jacobovici would read your comment. Unfortunately not too soon as she lost her beloved mother on Thursday night. My heart feels sorry for her loss. But Sara wold have enjoyed your comment considerably. Yes, we want to be independent and yet wish to belong to a group. As you mentioned sometimes a group may slow us down, but still we feel safer with a group without willing to lose our authenticity. I have more to say about your comment soon.18/08/2017 #24 Lisa VanderburgAh-ha...is optimism/pessimist not more a matter of extremes, wonderful @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee? Using the lesson from that fun video, the balls are attracted to either rim or each other, depending on the 'climate' of physics and the amount of water in this particular glass. Ether way, they are 'covering their own ass' (pardon my vernacular).To make full advantage of our paths possibly requires a stability that does not include extremes, but those are like fingerprints or...fractals, as you and @Milos Djukic would understand way better than me!
To be without extreme; basically in the middle of our wont, is a much sought-after commodity, methinks. As you know, my husband has PD, but I always say his PRIMARY disease is unbridled optimism! It's an open joke; he considers me 'pessimistic' (wherein I think I'm 'rational'), and I see his 'optimism' as 'extreme', as the inability to not see the proverbial excrement that WILL hit the fan; the fall-out! Lord...wish I was sane!! :) Great buzz, friend!18/08/2017 #23 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorKeeping in the flow may result in the loss of new opportunities and hinder our chances to move in various directions - like a tree wanting to spread its branches. But like the tree, we should remember our roots and while venturing out and not lose track of our true identity.
If we become strongly dependent on others, then I don't believe we can remain free-flowing entities as we come diluted in the process. Plus, strongly relying on others may not always be our best option. It's best to dip your toe than to jump into the hot water.18/08/2017 #22 Maureen WixonThank you Ali Anani for this flowing post. Life throws new challenges and opportunities and how we respond matters. Still like the words of Kahlil Gibran as our needs for reaching out, bonding and separateness changes as the flow is constantly in motion: "“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls."18/08/2017 #20 Tricia MitchellAn interesting buzz, dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I appreciate you bringing my attention to the shared theme. Fascinating video watching the movement of the ball based on the buoyancy of the water. It's funny, that was the word I used to describe your buzzes, that you 'buoy' readers up, but then I changed it to 'afloat' as the sentence didn't 'flow'! I think, perhaps, this may be an example where people 'receive' the same inspiration and season it with their own flavour. The message gets through using a variety of mediums, potentially influencing the collective.
You wrote, "The optimist tends to move on a path away from the center and attention. In contrast, the optimist is the person who keeps moving towards the center because s/h is engaged." I find this interesting; if it is the optimist that moves towards the centre, at what point does s/he break free and float off in search of other adventures (sometimes a group can slow us down, as well as strengthening the individual by combining skills)?
In terms of flow, I just 'saw' a canal. This reminded me of streams feeding into lakes, rivers feeding into estuaries that feed into oceans, and raindrops into reservoirs. The water in our reservoirs ends up coming out of our taps and then the cycle begins all over again.
I believe that we are "free-flowing entities" while still being connected to the whole consciously, and that we only separate physically. Or maybe, collective consciousness is like watching a drop of water fall into the ocean and then trying to find it again?18/08/2017 #19 Debasish Majumderout of the process photosynthesis, water on leaves are visible, a product of the plant itself. i wonder, how the droplets have their inherent desire to move without the direction of the leaves out of its design of surface! i guess, the leaves largely having control of water droplets on its surface and dictate the fate of the concern droplets. so, i guess, external world have a great deal to determine the fate of any event.however, lovely insight sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! enjoyed read and shared. thank you very much for the share sir.18/08/2017 #18 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#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.

Comments20/08/2017 #12 Ken BoddieI'll "peeface" my comment, Susan, by suggesting that those preparing for being "laid" by Microsoft may wish to get in the mood with some "porn and beans" - but only if the "porn" has no associated 'flatulation' ?
Now that you've set the precedence for blue jokes, Susan, and assuming that you have a relatively broad mind, I'm reminded of the time I asked my elderly Volvo-driving aunt how my Uncle Richard was getting to the family get together, which I had arranged. She advised me that "Dick is coming in my vulva". I never did challenge her typing skills in this particular instance. 😔19/08/2017 #10 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianLOL, this post is very timely. Many of my typos are auto-correct or spell check based. I ALWAYS double check carefully.
I just finished two articles. One, for a client, had the word "analyse" switched out for "anal lice." I'm not sure if I should pity the afflicted person, the lice, or both. Caught and fixed.
The other is a recipe for Tuna Burgers that I will post shortly. I don't know if I should blame spell check, probably not since the sentence makes "sense" as is. "Oil your grill to avoid sticking," became "oil your girl to avoid sticking." That too was caught and fixed19/08/2017 #2 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianI SO love Fridays because of your funnies!!!
Microsoft may be on to something. That would certainly take the sting out of losing a job. HR execs take note!
Maybe Microsoft can include a can of Porn and Beans?
In defence of The Kennebec Journal, that may not be a typo. It may have something to do with Trump's famous (infamous?) quote, "I like to grab them by the ...." Perhaps North Korean women are less into Brazilian waxes? I wouldn't know, just sayin'

No-one is going around saying, 'I am disconnected from my body" . they are going around saying, "I am anxious, I am overwhelmed, i am busy, I can't find peace or happiness or my creativity." When we connect we can find peace in our body and mind, happiness in the simplest moments, creativity emerges and we can be the calm centre amidst the storm.29/11/2016 #22 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeYes @Tausif Mundrawala #19 all of our senses are working even if we do not notice and sense them as we have become so preoccupied with thinking rationally and with words. when we pay atttention to the other ways our bodies are making sense of the world we can integrate this knowledge with our thinking and generate better ideas, solutions, actions and be more aligned between what we think and say and what our body does. making the connection opens us to new knowledge that is waiting in the wings.

""Usually, things happen in the world and you got your work, and you've got your family, and you've got your friends, and you do what you do," Popovich said. "But to this day, I feel like there's a cloud, a pall over the whole country, in a paranoid, surreal sort of way. And it's got nothing to do with Democrats losing the election. It's got to do with the way one individual conducts himself, and that's embarrassing."
"It's dangerous to our institutions, and what we all stand for, and what we expect the country to be. But for this individual, he's in a game show," he continued, without mentioning the president by name. "And everything that happens begins and ends with him, not our people or our country. Every time he talks about those things, that's just a ruse. That's just disingenuous, cynical, I think."
"Trump trauma" is real — and it's interfering with people's daily lives.

The 2017 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player spoke at a time when Trump has come under fierce criticism for his response to the deadly violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.
“I just wanted to sit back and analyze everything and gather my thoughts,” Durant said. “I wanted to say something immediately, but I definitely want to be the voice of where I come from and people who have come from my neighborhood and deal with oppression.”
Durant’s teammates, Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala, have each expressed reservations about going to the White House to celebrate their title with Trump.
