    Fertility and the Honey of Life,
    Accomplishing the Impossible


    Bees are the symbol of fertility and sexuality.
    Its honeycomb, a hexagon, is the symbol of the heart and
    represents the sweetness of life found within our own heart.
    It is also the symbol of the sun and all its energies.

    The bee reminds us to extract the honey of life
    and to make our lives fertile (productive) while the sun shines.
    No matter how great the dream is, there is the promise of fulfillment
    if we pursue our dreams.

    If a Bee has shown up in your life, examine your own productivity.
    Are you doing all you can to make your life more fertile?
    Are you busy enough?
    Are you making time to savor the honey of life and not becoming a workaholic?

    The Bee is the symbol of accomplishing the impossible.
    Aerodynamically, its body is too large for its wings and should not be able to fly.
    Although now we understand how it does fly (high rate of wing movement),
    the Bee remains a symbol of accomplishing anything you put your mind to.

    In Hinduism, the Bee relates to Vishnu, Krishna or Kama, the God of Love.
    In Egypt, the Bee symbolized royalty.
    In Greece, it was the symbol of the Eleusinian Mysteries.
    The Celts associated the Bee with hidden wisdom.

    JJ,
    If this isn't of the same thought bubble of bee-dom let me know, ok?
    I hope you do not mind. I found the above and thought it might fit.
    I am happy to see you and hope you will be open to sharing more of the adventures of bee keeping this year!
