Bee imagery has always been meaningful and symbolic to Patricia. Her book Pathfinding: Seven Principles for Positive Living, and Success, Your Dream and You explains the metaphor: "Like the bee that draws nectar from deep inside the flower to make honey, Patricia Raskin is a catalyst who draws out the positive, life-enriching wisdom of others, and serves it up as enriching honey for your soul ... this book is a beehive of cross-pollination which transfers life experiences into food for thought—a honeycomb of strength, hope and positive action for these challenging times."
Psychologists have estimated that the average person has over 62,000 thoughts each day centered on ordinary activities and responsibilities. People rarely "track" their thoughts - whether they’re positive or negative, fleeting or introspective, directed or unrelated to the moment. Never the less, our internal dialogue for decision-making, actions, and behavior hums constantly in our brains.
