Following simple Rules of life

Following simple Rules of life

The comments on my last two buzzes sent me into a deep journey with myself. I know that every day passes my existence on earth will be closer. Has my purpose in life has changed? When I was young I had more time to live than now. Does having a purpose in life change with age? I tried to be honest with myself I answering these questions. Sometimes we answer questions by asking more questions. I found myself in this situation.

Life has its own complexity that may emerge from following simple rules. So, what are the simple rules that guided my life so far? I say without realizing this before that the simple rules I followed were:

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.

These simple guiding rules don't change with time except for what we I am passionate for. I used to love doing research and then my passion changed to understanding peoples' behaviors. However; these rules interact and feedback to each other. For example, the better I treat people, the more they shall be willing to serve me and vice versa. When I do what I have passion for I shall be in peace with myself and more ready to serve self and others.

My intentions become purposeful without even planning for them to be. Purpose is an emerging result of my following these simple rules. Here I question the validity of designing our purpose when it is simply an emerging one. It is in a way like culture- an emerging property resulting from how people interact with each other.Β 
Ali Anani, PhD

It is following simple rules that lead to discovering the meaning of life. It is self-driven and isn't imposed from an outside force. These rules are what cause us to self-organize and find meaning to my life. These rules give me my authenticity and who I am. We need to grow the realization that not only birds, for example, follow simple rules that lead to the emergence of their beautiful flying patterns. We may have our own simple rules that would give our lives a flying pattern. It this conclusion is true then it negates my long-standing belief that I should find a purpose for my life. We don't plan for emerging properties; otherwise why do we call them emerging?

Do what you are passionate about and then look how to make it useful for the world all within respect for others and treating them the way you like to be treated. My purpose in life shall then find me.

What do you think?

They say those who appreciate beautiful are too beautiful. So you are my friend

My dear friend David Navarro L\u00f3pez- 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.

What 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.

Thank you dear Tausif Mundrawala- you never fail to move me with your comprehension and support

Harvey Lloyd- the subtleness of your filters and their differentiation are wonderful. I thank you for your supportive words and coming from you I trust them fully.

#46
Thank you dear debasish majumder for raising the what I call "The greedy passion" to destroy our earth with purposelessness. It strikes we that we keep doing the same while hurting us by hurting the environment. Very thoughtful comment indeed

Your 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. I enjoy your search and display of thoughts.

Dear Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman. 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 indeed

#42
All I can say to your wonderful comment dear CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit that you made me I am organic. This is a great sense. I can't thank you enough.

I 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.

All 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.

thanks Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. These issues will be solved in the next platform. It is coming during the next weeks!. Thanks for your patience

#39
Yes, for me the journey is more interesting than the destination. We experience far more on a journey than arriving at the destination. No question that I support and concur fully with your comment.

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. Many people do not understand that and are impatient, rush and take short cuts. I doubt they have insight and contentment as their product.

Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee (not producer honey) and it is not working. I experienced this before lately. I hope you would look into this issue. I also find it difficult to relocate a buzz> I feel a buzz has a lower status than a honey produce. I take this opportunity to thank you warmly for sharing this buzz with your followers.

Sounds to me like maybe it's just been dusted off again and given a new coat. It comes across as too fluid to be completely new. A lifetime of learning and wisdom in a new guise. The Emperor's new clothes ? Maybe not !

#33
You are so understanding, passionate and energetic my dear collaborator . We might pass the correct traffic lights sometimes, but with journey partners like you we shall learn and move forward. Your understanding and philosophy to life amazes me my friend.

#32
I am humbled and at the same time inflated by your passionate comment dear Pascal Derrien. Now, you enrich my purpose for life. Thank you

Therefore, your comment dear Gert Scholtz is of very special value to me. I appreciate every word of your comment and I assure you it shall stay imprinted in my mind.

With all honesty dear Sara Jacobovici what you wrote "reads" what I feel now. I found myself only today. Sometimes we think we know self, but surprisingly not so true. Yes, I have just begun a new way of looking at life. It is never too late. I feel energized.

Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee This is a most meaningful and important post to me. In three principles you encapsulate the essence of authenticity and living a life to your true purpose. Or as you state so well: β€œMy purpose in life shall then find me.” Thank you Ali – I am printing and keeping this exceptional post of yours.

Thank you dear .I realize now that we all have simple rules running our lives whether we are aware of them or not. This is a call for all to try to find those simple rules because by changing them we may change the outcome. I had this self-talk this morning and I felt sharing with you. We need to remember as these are rules so every one of us is responsible for the rules he makes for self. WE don't affect the output, but we may change te input.

Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, this piece of work is a life statement!! From the first word, it flowed seamlessly to the last. Your "simple" rules offer a profound and complex blueprint for life. Thank you for the privilege to observe the process of your self-reflection and to learn from your ability to articulate that process. I daresay that this is an opening to your "opus" Dr. Ali. There is a saying that I 'd like to share with you: You've only just began!

#1
Thank you dear @Julio Angel \ud83d\udc1dLopez Lopez. I must say this is a new version of me.

I think you're right Mr.Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
