The Shadow Engagement

The Shadow Engagement

Three unplanned engagements happened to me today. These engagements sparked my emotions and mind. These are solid engagements of appreciation, acknowledgement and gratitude.

First, I received a paper book authored by the poet of beBee and I mean Debasish Majumder. The book is a beautiful compilation of articles that Debasish authored. The book is titled β€œConundrum of Life”. I must admit that I asked myself why not titled as the Complexity of Life for in complexity we might be able eventually to self-organize. However; this shall be the subject of a separate buzz.

What filled me with a pleasant surprise is the acknowledgement of the book. The image below explains why.

This engagement is stronger than liking or commenting on a buzz. This is a genuine form of engagement that is not considered in social media engagement statistics.

The second surprise came from my good friend David Navarro. He sent me an e-mail upon his return from a long trip to Brazil. While there he sent me a congratulatory card on 2018 new year. I never received the mail and the card was sent back to him. His congratulations read:

Is there a bigger tribute to remember me when thousand of miles away from home and heavily engaged in loads of work?

Again, a true form of engagement that is not calculated in the engagement statistics of social media.

A third gift package arrived from my respected lady @Franci Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorΒ VIP

Franci has just initiated a new hive. It is called β€œunderstanding Thinking”. The picture Franci chose for the hive is as follows and it carries my name:

It is an invitation for you to join the hive and show a new form of genuine engagement.

Our shadows steer and control our ego. But, these shadows that steer great minds to show appreciation for others deserve gratitude and Big Thank You.

Here is another link; https://gorgonija.com/2018/10/29/nova-knjiga-o-jadranskim-puzevima/ This is the Croatian website, but you can always use the Google translation option. I was helping in lecturing and editing the text. Behind every great writer, there's the woman. :-)

I have just visited the link and it is a FB page. I am not member of FB and I could only get little info. Could you please share another link because the photos are interesting.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

As if you wren't a writer already dear Lada. Congrats on the new book and I shall look it up. It seems interesting and I wonder if you contributed to it directly or indirectly.

I think that one writer in my family is more than enough.:) A few days ago, after four years of really hard work, a book about the Adriatic opisthobranchs (sea slugs) was finally published. My husband is the first author. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009055428117 The book is amazing, written as bilingual Croatian-English. It contains species that are still undescribed, i.e. new to science. According to Riccardo Giannuzzi Savelli, it is the book of the year in Malacology.

Dear Lada, you comment occasionally, but your comments makes sense. Yes, it is an adjustment and adaptation that enrich our lives. Are you planning to publish a book as well

Dear Ali, if we believe that life is not a series of random events, then those three engagement seems like coincidences meaningfully related. On the other hand, things most likely to happen by mere chance and people will adjust what happened to fit in with the rule that bad or good things come in threes. Nevertheless, I believe that good things, such as those engagements of appreciation and gratitude, happen to people with a positive attitude like you, dear Ali, no matter how many good things in a row. :) I congratulate Debasish Majumder for his fourth paperback edition. Well done, Sir.

Thank you Debasish Majumder for commenting and appreciation. I am running a workshop and it is nice to have a break to read your comment. May I make two small corrections? I stopped publishing daily and almost once a week only. I have the feelings people would not like to be bombarded by posts from the same author. Second- this isn't first book. I wrote the forward for his first book available on Kindle. This is his second book. May be this is his first printed book. I do appreciate your friendship and care.

Your comment shows exactly why you are a genuine leader dear Jerry. I wrote this buzz with the intention to highlight the hidden; yet impacting aspects of engagement. But you add a new form of engagement- heartfelt comments such as yours are among the strongest engagements.

Dr. Ali, Lately, because I've been researching the American Dream, I've been reading things written by the founders of the United States. This quote from John Quincy Adams could have been written about you my friend: β€œIf your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” You, sir, are a leader.

Yes, CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit as it is the synchronicity that mostly drove me to write this buzz.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

You have been on beBee for a short time span; yet you impressed many bees with your thoughtful buzzes dear Jennifer Leach-Trask. I am one of your admirers. My motive of writing this buzz was basically to express my gratitude and surprise to my colleagues for the three testimonials came in threes. This synchronicity amazed me as they all arrived in a single day.

Thank you for the inspiration to write this buzz dear Debasish Majumder. It was your book that sparked the idea of this buzz and your grand acknowledgement dedicated to me. I wish you would share here the link to your book. I look forward to reading it as I am engaged for four days in a symposium in Aqaba (the only sea port of Jordan). I wish you success and that ideas shall keep flowing in your mind and never clot.

this buzz could be named , i guess, 'Platitude of Gratitude'! platelets in blood are ingredients responsible for clotting, without which by just hemorrhage one may die. bonding in social media with a positive magnitude, enabling to conglomerate with a healthy format is true amazing, where without physically not being acquainted with one, other can feel his or her impulses and make an indelible mark on ones mind! i wonder how these invisible platelets generate with an amazing inherent strength to enhance ones horizon with wide vistas! saving many with not to go for astray, rather infusing them to work for greater cause with a positive magnitude! amazing buzz sir Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee with manay in beBee platform are just stars whom we reckon with great delight. a boon to make this platform a distinct one with grand success! however, enjoyed read and shared. thank you for the buzz sir.

Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee- since you wrote a great buzz on engagement statistics of social media I wonder what would you call the engagements reported in this buzz and how do you classify them? I am curious.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Coincidence can be amazing. Just few minutes of my posting this buzz dear Harvey Lloyd published a superb buzz titled "A 3-D Leadership Revelation" https://www.bebee.com/producer/@harvey-lloyd/a-3-d-leadership-revelation In his buzz Harvey embedded the same image of mine that Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador embedded in her buzz as mentioned in this buzz. I wish I had delayed my publication of this buzz few minutes to include a fourth example of shadow engagements that Harvey provided in his buzz.
