The Habits of Humans, Minerals and Plants

The Habits of Humans, Minerals and Plants

Marketing to people's habits is a thriving field. It is not my intention to repeat what I wrote before or even extend one idea. My intention here is to relate the human habits with plants and minerals habit and find out the common threads among this triad.

As I was in the process of writing the draft of this buzz, Irene Hackett wrote a great buzz on "Drowning in the Pursuit of Happiness". This is a heart-moving buzz. Irene responded to one of my comments by writing "The sadness you may have experienced from reading this is a normal reaction; and yet it is in the sadness where humans connect at a deeper level". This response moved me so much and changed the course of the flow of ideas in my mind.

Are we like diamond form very deep in the earth and wait for volcanic eruption to send us to the surface? Do we need to sink deep in our sorrows and pressure so that we may transform into diamond-like humans? Diamond has very unique habits such as having the highest melting point mineral, the highest refractive index mineral and is transparent over the greatest number of wavelengths. What has transformed charcoal or graphite to such a high value mineral is its exposure to harsh conditions. Crystals of diamond often have curved faces, and in some cases they can be almost round. One crystal habit is ball-shaped agglomerates of radiatingΒ diamond crystals forms. Even the same crystal, it may shape up in different forms. It is like the spirit of Irene that is radiating with such great thoughts. Not all transformations are equal.
People are like minerals. Some people have the habits of diamonds and other the habits of much less valuable minerals. Apparently, transformation is costly and we have to experience difficult situations deeply to transform us and that once our inner volcanoes erupt we come to the surface to be "collected" by others.
Like radiating selves and radiating diamond, there are also radiating plants. We may expose plants to radiation. The flavor in your chewing gum and toothpaste, and the red-ruby grapefruit on your plate, is the result of mutation caused by deliberate irradiation. We may be exposed to the radiation coming out from the experiences of others and transform into useful human beings. The sharing of experiences is one way of achieving that. Telling personal stories, as Irene did, is a way of exposing us to radiations to change to our betterment. It is not uncommon for one species of plant to exhibit growth habits among its different varieties. I believe the same extends to us and we produce different human varieties when we grow under slightly different conditions. Our growth experiences the Butterfly Effect wherein small changes may create different us.

Salt and granite minerals make domes. Plants make domes. Human build domes. Flowers make domes as this one (the background image), which @Joanne Swecker has kindly permitted me to re-use. We need to transform into domes of light so that we may enlighten the path of others who experience rough condition underneath the soil of their sorrow, sadness, suffering and pressure. Let us transform to domes of others to complete their transformations. The bleeding from the heart-bleeding plant might be our way to transform.


I dedicate this buzz with a transformed heart to the wonderful lady with her diamond-like habits. I dedicate it to Irene HackettΒ and to the memory of her mother who gave birth to such a grateful and blessed daughter.

What truly binds me to you dear brother Anees Zaidi is evident from your comment: it is the enlightening lamp. Your comment are truly a lamp that opens my eyes to new possibilities, to new examples and new thinking. It is not you and I; much more to me it is you, I and the exchange of ideas that acts like the enlightening lamp. I don't have to explain. Your brilliant comment says it all.

This comment of yours dear Joanne Swecker tells much about you. For readers of Joanne's comment I hope you inhale the nectar in her flowery comment. Without change man has to die. Yes, and the harsher the conditions, the more rewarding the change shall be.

Rarely I am in tears, but when they flow they flow and clean my heart. This is my status now having read your buzz. I am editing now to dedicate it to you and to your lovely mother as well. Yes, the more we endure, the more transformations we undergo. Will speak again.
