"Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge. We are perpetually on the way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind." Friedrich Nietzsche
What a great metaphor this is. What we have to give has to come from what is inside us, what we have gathered, what we have digested, stored, and turned into an offering. We each cover different fields, pursue different flowers. The honey in different locales will have distinct signature flavors, scents. It is the contributions from all the members of the community combined that produce the sweetness that sustains new life, expanded vision.
