Who Should Make the First Move?

Who Should Make the First Move?

Bees move, but the plants don't move. The plant expects the bee to move in, but move out carrying their pollen. Or, to be more careful with my words, plants move within limited boundaries. They move with the wind and move water from the soil to their tops. Some plants have mouths with structures like jaws so that they may devour insects. They grow with respect to the Golden Ratio to keep their symmetry and beauty. Some plants don't stretch their roots in soil; they have aerial roots and move to walls as a support for their growth. Sunflower moves with the sun. The science behind this movement is fascinating.

More than that, there is one tree that gives us the illusion it walks. There is a palm tree in Costa Rica that still puzzles scientists because it seems to move. We may learn from this movement how to move hearts that seem to be too harsh to move.
Β 

We get frozen sometimes and lose our ability to move. Or, we walk away from life when we should walk in it. However; there are situations in life that we need to walk away. If you have a very inhuman manager that turns your life into hell then you should consider walking away because life is ": Life is much better without the insecure, illogical and emotionally hostile. Refuse to work with them; do not let them in your life". I am quoting Brian McKenzie who made this comment on a great buzz titled "4 Tips to Handle Woman Bullies in Business" and written by the capable Rebel Brown.

Back to the bees and flowers- the bees move and the plants don't. However; the flowers move the bees with their fragrance, bright colors and patterns. More than that, flowers make it easy for the bees to reach their nectar. They build symbiotic relationships with the bee so that they may revisit.

There is a very healthy discussion on my buzz "The Integration of Two Spanish Experiences". Should an author write with a hive in mind? Or, an author should write first and then decide to which hive the post shall locate? If the hive is the flower then the buzz is the bee. The bee goes to the flower with its inviting nectar. If an author focuses his/her posts with a pre-determined hive in mind then he/she is like a bee that goes for a specific flower and keeps re-visiting. If the author sees writing as a discovery journey then the author will change the writing material and adapt it or even take new paths away from the initial one he/she started on. Once the buzz is finalized it shall be moved to the most appropriate hives.Β 

If you are in business remember that you need to move hearts to move hands in pockets.See my presentation for full details:

What are your thoughts? If we gather enough materials then I promise their compilation into an e-book. Sharing is caring and so please do share your mind.

I am grateful to Anees Zaidi, Pamela L. Williams and Qamar Ali Khan for starting these healthy discussions.

Great comment Sara. I feel like calling this phenomena you describe "double sensing". BTW_ you kept my mind busy with your suggested video. Later today, I am responding

Thank you CityVP Manjit for contributing a comment that kept my mind busy. In fact, it propelled me to re-publish a post on who I am and why I cater so much for learning. I am besides you on what you wrote "and having made that choice, mine is 100% learning". I am your faithful companion

Great work CityVP Manjit. What came to mind while reading your "comment" is synesthesia "a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway." The reason I chose this definition is because it describes not onoy sensory but cognitive pathways. Commonly synesthesia is referred to the individual experienceing more thn one sense at a time; hearing a tone and seeing its color, But your comment led me to the aspect of the cognitive synesthesia. You write, "Teaching hives are all convergent just as all corresponding Study Hives are divergent. Thus the hive is flower and flower is hive, there is no separation, unless we teach pure specialism." I look forward to the experience and learning of your Hives Manjit.

The first four hives I have created are CONVERGENT HIVES, this means that I am converging to a particular object. This object can still contain a generalism or a specialism, so specialism is not necessarily the only type of convergence. Over the next week I will be creating 8 hives that are DIVERGENT HIVES. If I only operate with convergent hives I feel constrained as if I am operating with a straight-jacket. Such a bounded experience is focusing and these limits do provide a useful purpose - energy that converges adds value to the object. The meaning of extroversion is a focus on the object. The divergent hives is a focus on the subject and introversion is a focus on the subject. That my eventual 12 hives will represent a ratio of 4:8 will indicate the degree to which I exhibit introvert traits and the degree I exhibit extrovert traits - in other words a 2-to-1 ratio. All of this is a part of my learning journey and it is important to make it clear that I believe that everyone has a choice about their learning journey and having made that choice, mine is 100% learning. There are hives which are created as teaching journey's and teaching hives contain a significant shift to specialism, though one can also teach in a renaissance way. I am not on a teaching journey, but of course I can draw great value from teaching hives. I have not abandoned the greatest teaching hive that exists in the off-line space called the public library and that other institution called the local college. Teaching hives are all convergent just as all corresponding Study Hives are divergent. Thus the hive is flower and flower is hive, there is no separation, unless we teach pure specialism. We learn from bees, bees don't learn from us. Study hives are one form of learning journey, whereas mine is emergent.

My friend Milos Djukic that he is posting a buzz and was inspired by one of your striking posts on chaos. That is what I meant by saying he is takiing the first move. I do respect whatever you do my friend and you excel because you put your mind and passion into it.

Agreed Ali Anani, this is when something throws us off balance, like an infection in the ear, we can think of an infectious relationship which we didn't anticipate or were able to predict. This leads to the discussion of control; the horrible feeling of the dizziness is feeling that loss of control.

Another thought provoking Buzz Ali Anani which has opened up a great discussion. Where there is life, there is movement. This then opens the door to the relationships which you describe. How internal and external movements take place, when we "stand still", when we leap and so on influence the relationship and the results. Then of course you have the choreographed moves. My mind is moving 100 miles per hour and envisioning the myriad of directions and combinations of relationships Dr. Ali. For now, please enjoy this additional link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njTmKCPEXwY

This is what we call stabilizing balance Sara Sara Jacobovici would like to respond. But Sara sometimes we lose balance while sitting and our heads revolve and we get dizzy. We are in phase of instability even though we are not moving. Because I suffered lately from this I know what it means for a head to go in a revolving movement while sitting.

I can't resist to add my sensory perspective Ali Anani. Our stability through movement comes from the vestibular system which is our "sense of balance" found in our ears. So one may conclude that stability and movement come from balance which shares the same organ as the one with which we hear.

With your nectar-like words dear Glenn Melcher I am sure I am the one who will move to where your nectar is. I love the extension of the concept to government-citizen relationship. How lovely if we could turn it to a symbiotic one.

Your thoughts brought to mind for me that the governments need to be aware of how they proceed.. Bees are much like Citizens in that they go where they are treated best.. Where you might place your words Dr. Ali Anani PHD,we are all blessed to know you.

Your spiritual bonding with me is unbelievable William King. I wonder what Brian McKenzie will have to say about your re-shaped strategy loo. I love it and love your fast comprehension. How would you apply this modified loop to authors and what words would you change?

I believe a hive can inspire a writer to select a specific subject, but I also believe a writer can write about a subject and then select or create a relevant hive. No matter which way the honey drizzles from the dipper, it's what inspires a writer to make their selection. Within the WordPress site, there are numerous offerings of suggestions and events as inspiration to writers. In addition, there are writers that adhere to same type subjects i.e. leadership, motivation, self-improvement, etc. Other writers will select any subject they feel is worthy of releasing their thoughts. Not to mention, selection from the many types of literary genres. I believe writers are artists because they focus on self-expression and create by playing with words. The adventure discovery can come from within or be subjected to outside forces or a combination of both. Artist – musicians, painters, writers, poets, always seem to have had the most accurate perception of what is really going on around them, not the official version or the popular perception of contemporary life. – Billy Joel

Oh, dear Anees Zaidi- it is not weird at all. More often than not I start writing a buzz and then a new idea emerges sending me into a discovery journey. Writing this buzz was never planned. It is a thought that I got from the comments of "troubled minds" like mine.and yours

Your profound comment is inline with my responses Javier C\u00e1mara Rica. However; the beauty of beBee is that it brings new insights from bees. I have no doubt that the forthcoming comments shall open our eyes to issues that may have escaped. Meanwhile, I appreciate your kind words.

The best thing of Hives is that you can do both ways. You can write with a hive in mind our you can write first and then decide to which hive the post shall locate. I think we usually know what you are going to wirte about, so you know perfectly the hive before writing :) a lot of creativity Ali Anani Thanks !
