Transcript of Peace BEE With You

With You

Compassion, Sustainability,
and the Honey Bee.
Honey Bees
at the
Mir Centre
What do bees have
to do with peace?
Helping flowers have sex
for 65 million years.
From creation
to eternity
Words must be followed by deeds;
words without deeds are as
bees that yield no honey,
as trees that bear no fruit.

-- Baha'u'llah

Living in society;
living in harmony
with nature.
... for so work the honeybees,
Creatures that by a rule in nature teach
The act of order to a peopled kingdom.
They have a king and officers of sorts ...
Others like soldiers armed in their stings
Make boot upon the summer’s velvet buds,
Which pillage they with merry march bring home
To the tent royal of their emperor,
Who, busied in his majesty, surveys
The singing masons building roofs of gold ...
-- Henry V
There are certain pursuits which,
if not wholly poetic and true, do
at least suggest a nobler and finer
relation to nature than we know.
The keeping of bees, for instance,
is a very slight interference. It is
like directing the sunbeams.
-- Henry David Thoreau
I WILL arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
-- William Butler Yeats
Labor is needed..
if we are to drink
of the honey...
and building
cultures of peace
through education
