Ideas Transferring

Ideas Transferring


Writers suffer from small nudges that take them into paths that they didn't imagine. One ideas that I read on LinkedIn is by Angelina Kukkamalla, EPCβœ”πŸŒ, in which she wrote commenting on an image shard below by saying "This picture says a million words.... Do you understand why you must shine light in the darkness? Because LIGHT HAS NO SHADOW".

Ideas Transferring

@ Sara Jacobovici was quicker than I in responding to the above post by publishing her own on post titled "Illuminating a Shadow". However; I got nudged away by another post on beBee by Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD in which she shared the following image:

Ideas Transferring

Comparing the two images above inspired me with the idea: what if light falls on broken hearts like light falling on broken glass? Broken hearts are dim and are less bright than the light source. What shadows these hearts shall reflect? We know the sun makes the stars fade away during the day because the sun is greatly brighter than anything else. Bright bodies don't show shadows. How about dark and broken hearts?

The quote from Chekhov in the image above tells us that in writing show it rather than say it. I say show the effect rather than the cause. Show the reflections and diffractions of light rather than showing the light source. A light falling on a sunny person has different effects than same light falling on a cloudy or gloomy person. The cause or source is the same, but the effect is different. Reena Saxena commented on Sara's post by saying "Shall I equate this phenomenon with a teacher-disciple relationship? We do not see flaws in our thinking process, till we come across a higher source of knowledge. The teacher need not be human. A book, an article, a website, an opinion or argument can all ignite these sudden insights. Synergy is not created till one agrees to merge". By the same token, we need a brighter idea to question a bright one.

A new nudge breaks in now as the image of broken glass reminds me of the "Broken Windows Theory". This theory states that maintaining and monitoring urban environments to prevent small crimes such as vandalism, public drinking, and toll-jumping helps to create an atmosphere of order and lawfulness, thereby preventing more serious crimes from happening. There are some doubts about the validity of this theory. I have my own. This is because a smaller act is preventing bigger criminal acts. But it is the brighter sun that hides the stars. Will by the same token only bigger acts eclipse smaller ones? This thinking works in the opposite direction of the Broken Windows Theory.

Your thoughts are greatly welcome.

Darkness gives birth to light.Darkness to me is like our adversities and light is the ladder we can step on to overcome and climb over these adversities.A broken heart to me dear Ali Ananiis like a cloth that has a tear in it, because a peice of it was taken and the light to me is the thread that stitches this heart together and this cannot be achieved with just one stitch. We give shape to darkness and it is we who can determine what our darkness can be ! Thank you for this interesting buzz. Wonder how I missed it :) I wish I had 48 hours in a day !

Dear Joanne Swecker- this is truly amazing "Light is dependent upon the darkness for illumination". How deep thinking this is. Darkness is the independent factor. WOW! A lot to think about.

Dear Joanne Joanne Swecker- you wrote "Close your eyes and darkness is always there, blow out a candle, darkness is there". Amazing as I cover myself with a blanket to think of creative ideas. Darkness needs no effort as you said and, paradoxically, it illuminates my mind. No matter what color your comment has, it illuminated me and filled me with light inside. Amazing comment is yours my dear friend.

Joanne Swecker wrote a brilliant post on light within me and the idea of light as an internal source is different from light (truth) coming from an external source. This is a lovely post to read: https://www.linkedin.com/nhome/updates?activity=6158849422190051328&goback=&trk=hb_ntf_LIKED_YOUR_RICH_MEDIA_UPDATE Meanwhile Rebel Brown wrote a powerful buzz on same subject: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@rebel-brown/we-are-not-broken Truly, idea transferring in its true sense

"The concept of shadow self in leadership is important because it is a reality. The shadow of leaders touches people in different ways. The night is beautiful until our own imagination ruins it" and "My starting point is wholeness and I want to master that, because then I can observe brokenness differently than if I begin my learning journey with brokenness - for the pull and gravity of brokenness is far greater than the lightness of being that is wholeness:. Dear CityVP Manjit- just combining the above gives me te space to think and think. The wholeness of two elements co-existing and not fragmented thinking. I have an idea and I am exploring....

Dale Masters- what a shining comment that you wrote? I love it and find your writing "Only by alleviating the darkness that poverty brings can the light of productivity begin the photosynthesis of hope that such poverty destroys". This is incredibly enlightening my friend. In light, we may photosynthesize- light is a source of creation and is an ingredient for making great reactions. It is not only eclipsing the sun, it is also depriving the "leaves of society" from producing. I surely want to elaborate on this soon in a buzz.

One thing that might help you answer your legitimate question dear Mamen Delgado is asking yourself what can eclipse your smile? I wrote once that when you smile the whole world smiles. You are the "sun of smiles". Is this of any help to you to answer your question?

You bring an important issue into focus Jeet Sarkar. The reversibility and its magnitude. The sun eclipses the stars, but can the stars eclipse the sun? Sometimes, we see some magnitude and others we hardly see any. Reverse thinking is called for. Great point

Dear Anees Zaidi- very important point you add, which is the time dimension and the longevity of an event. Yes, this is the time dimension when most of us focused on the space dimension. Great point

The super Jean makes a super comment. You remind me of my presentation "Complexity has its shadow" and I find your comment very fitting with the presentation. Out of experience I find your comment very relevant

Franci 🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador

Light makes things visible. But that visibility may be dim or it may bright. The brighter light is more illuminating and perhaps an easier path to follow or a safer haven in which to dwell. I believe the dimmer lights along the way lead you to the brighter light, which the smaller act can be preventing the bigger act. And yes, the bigger act can eclipse the smaller one so is the obvious hiding behind the mysterious or vice versa? In my opinion, it can work either way.

The concept of shadow self in leadership is important because it is a reality. The shadow of leaders touches people in different ways. The night is beautiful until our own imagination ruins it. There are also prejudices in society between light people and dark people - and so the only form of wholesome positive is embracing both light and shadow. With no light we may not be able to see but too much light blinds us. The religious conception of Lucifer is not the angel of darkness but the angel of light. Not only do I embrace the spectrum/colour but I also embrace the tint, tones and shades http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/05/hues-tints-tones-and-shades/ With tints one is adding white, with tones one is adding both black and white and with shades one is adding black. My personal learning journey embraces all those aspects. My starting point is wholeness and I want to master that, because then I can observe brokenness differently than if I begin my learning journey with brokenness - for the pull and gravity of brokenness is far greater than the lightness of being that is wholeness. This focus on whole rather than broken relates to awakening - and each day I awake, I consider myself whole but maybe within seconds my memory and thoughts will recast cracks, dents and the memory of brokenness but the longer I can remain whole, the greater the chance I have of remaining whole. We read stories of people who were broken but still soar and we are inspired by them - which tells me that only a few people see themselves as whole - and whole does not mean a physical thing but allying ourselves as a gift of the cosmos, and how can I be more whole with that, rather than my temporal existence?

I have to say I read this post yesterday and I couldn't say a word about it... When I went to bed I was thinking about the effects of the light, the same light, on a sunny person or a cloudy person and I felt still speechless. When I read long time ago "Man's Search for Meaning" by doctor Frankl, I had clear as water than the light (the situations) is less important than I thought till that moment. The really important question is the reflect (interpretation) each of us create from that light. Same light, different reflections. I still don't have many words about it...

Honoured to be mentioned in such a poetically insightful and thought provoking Buzz Ali Anani. I must confess, you have me dizzy in trying to follow your concluding remarks, "...a smaller act is preventing bigger criminal acts. But it is the brighter sun that hides the stars. Will by the same token only bigger acts eclipse smaller ones? This thinking works in the opposite direction of the Broken Windows Theory." From my perspective, stopping the smaller acts in the Broken Windows Theory will prevent the bigger acts from occurring or taking place. The stronger light of the sun is actually covering up or concealing the stars from us, preventing us from seeing their presence; they are there but not in sight. In other words, in the first case I see the smaller preventing the bigger from coming into being, while in the second, the greater is blinding us to what already is.

On the contrary, you made a brilliant comment and I am building on it my dear debasish majumder. You are a great thinker. No need for apologies as we grow and learn together.

Thank you for expanding the "horizon" of the discussion my friend Donna-Luisa Eversley and before reading your thinking comment.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

You surely have sunny poem in mind dear @debasish majumder. Yes, ideas are energies and they may activate another idea ccordingly. This thought is worthy and deserves deeper thinking. Ideas also are like molecules some stable, some very unstable and some in between. The continuum of ideas and the continuum of molecular stability. A lot to think about. As for what you wrote "your line, smaller acts of crime preventing from bigger one is utter amazing!". In fact this isn't my idea; it is the concept of the Broken Windows Theory. I am opposing it for what will engulf a small problem is a bigger one. Like the sun it hides the stars because it is brighter.

I genuinely want to thank you for writing such an enriching comment Graham Edwards. Yes, you are correct. No light without darkness and we still chase an impossible dream by wanting the light without the darkness. But, I also loved the use of feel and this feeling intensifies when walking in darkness. Bats see through echolocation. When we become in harmony with ourselves things change to the better, hopefully

Thanks for the "nudge" Ali Anani. We like the association of opposites; light and dark, good and bad; happy and sad. There is no doubt there are some evolutionary echoes as to why were fear the darkness; dangerous things can prowl in the shadows. We can see in the light but in the darkness we can only "feel" - And many of us really don't like to do that. These nudges are a lot of fun!

I feel the glow inside me because of the brightness of your comment dear Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD. I know you as a scientist and poet, but now add as a philosopher. So deep are your ideas and love is light or love is sun because there is nothing brighter than sun. You bring me back to my buzz on what love is? You open new possibilities. Awaiting impatiently for your build up buzz and I know for sure it is going to be glowing with love and lovely thinking.

I wish you had written this comment a year or two ago when I was on one day visit to pune Ramesh Sood. Thank you for asking so many questions and stirring questions. I need a breathing time to collect my ideas and respond. But, surely the inner glow and motivation are the of great intrinsic values and nothing surpass them.
