In 1945, there were 4.5 million bees in the United States. Today, there are just about 2 million. It’s been a subtle decline over time, but one that has dramatically accelerated over the past seven years. And this should be extremely alarming, given that bees pollinate one-third of the world’s crops.

In today’s talk, given at TEDGlobal 2013, Marla Spivak looks at why bees are disappearing. She highlights four reasons — many related to changes in farming practices — and how they interact to tragic end. But beyond that, Spivak wonders: what do these deaths mean for us given that bees, a species our lives are deeply intertwined with, have thrived for over 50 million years?

“This small bee is holding up a large mirror,” says Spivak. “How much is it going to take to…

Simply Love

Love frees others from our grasp–and lets them return on their own. Love is placing another’s personal needs above our own, without regret. Love is selfless, yet it exhilarates the self. Giving love softens our edges, completes us, and connects us to the people with whom we are fulfilling our destinies.

Get Rid Of Doubts

Thx Vincent!

Vincent Egoro

There is something wrong when the children of the King of kings go about like sheep hounded by a pack of wolves.
There is something wrong when those who have inherited infinite supply are worrying about their daily bread; are dogged by fear and anxiety so that they cannot have any peace; that their lives are battling with want; that they are always anxious.
There is something wrong when we are so worried and absorbed in making a living that we cannot make a life.

We were made for happiness, to express joy and gladness, to be prosperous. The trouble with us is that we do not trust God to supply our needs. We keep our minds and our faith in ourselves so small, so narrow, that we strangle the inflow of supply. “Abundance follows a law as strict as that of mathematics. If we obey it, we get the…

Don’t Let Your Past Ruin Your Future

One of the major causes of depression is always dwelling our minds on the missed opportunities or the many chances we didn’t take in the past. Little wonder the scripture instructs us to forget the past and turn our backs on the former things we had lost, the missed chances or opportunities.

Folks whatever your past has been, forget it. Because always going back to the past can cast a shadow on the present, and cause us to live in sadness, and in ingratitude. “There’s nothing more foolish, nothing more wicked than to drag the skeletons of the past, the hideous images, the foolish deeds, the unfortunate experiences of yesterday into today’s work to mar and spoil it.”

For some of us, this is why our relationships don’t ever work. I remember a time I was in a relationship with someone who always stores up all my…

EVERYTHING MATTERS

The greatest gift we can give one another is rapt attention to one another’s existence.

We all want to matter to others. Very often in the past and sometimes in the present, our behavior screams for the attention we seek from others. Perhaps, instead of trying to get attention, we ought to give generously.

Those people close to us and those just passing through our lives have reason to be there from Him. Giving attention to another’s humanity is our calling!

Wisdom of the ages also dictates that in life there are no accidents.

Ephesians 4:32
“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”

Responsibility

We are each powerless over others, which relieves us of a great burden. Controlling our own behavior is a big enough job. Learning to behave responsibly takes practice. Most of us have in the past have behaved irresponsibly. Emotional immaturity is slow to depart, but every responsible action we take gives us the courage for another – and then another. Our own fulfillment is the by-product of the accumulation of our own responsible actions. Others’ actions need not concern us.

“The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick alongside it.”

― D.L. Moody
