The keeping of bees is like the direction of sunbeams
— Henry David Thoreau
The Heart of the Beehive · Photographer unknown
In ancient times, bees were depicted by some cultures as Messengers of the Gods, and by ancient Egyptians to represent beings of high standing or royalty.

In the village, a sage should go about like a bee, which, not harming flower, colour or scent, flies off with the nectar ― The Dhammapada
Bee comes to us today as a messenger
from the Sun
and the God/dess of Love.
She speaks to us
of the great beauty and power of community,
and the incredible fruits of labor
that can be achieved
when we work and coexist together in harmony.
Each Bee makes a great contribution to the higher good, and the survival and success of the community.
She speaks also to us of fertility and diligence —
as Bee is a master pollinator —
ensuring the survival of many different plants,
flowers and crops across the entire face
of our beautiful planet.
Her honey is nectar —
divine ambrosia that brings a heavenly sweetness
into our world.
Without Bee on our planet,
it’s been said our delicate ecosystem could not survive
for more than a few more years.
Bee is a living miracle:
no scientist or physicist understands
how she can fly.
Her endurance is legendary and her magic is wisdom,
with the power of believing,
of faith and of courage.
“The bee’s life is like a magic well: the more you draw from it,
the more it fills with water” ― Karl Von Frisch
