"Every Sunset Brings The Promise Of A New Dawn" Ralph Waldo Emerson
As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
The truth is the other day I wrote about the powerful role of knowledge, the thoughts were called A Collective Vision. I chose this title after taking some time to really think about, the overall meaning I wanted to convey with the writing. The idea for diplomacy or knowledge as a catalyst to drive innovation, or social policy is a vision that has to be viewed for the social good, for the collective. One person may drive this shift, propel the vision, but it takes more people behind the propeller to actually put the vision into action.
Then it dawned upon me, that in actual fact to be able to see anything, we have to piece it together through our own vision. For example: If you are looking at a piece of art work, it might seem as though you are looking at this image as a whole, but really you are not. The eye or visual field looks at parts of the art work, and these parts are put together by the brain, in simplistic terms. If we are to see anything at the level of the individual, then we must see the parts in order to formulate the whole. These thoughts can also be thought of when we think about vision upon a collective level.
A collective vision does not suggest that we ignore individual difference - it means to recognize these, embrace these for an all - encompassing vision. Of course it does sound simple than it is in reality. But to understand anything we must go back to simple levels, so that there is a clear vision about how a nation, or nations can work together for present and future generations.
