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 that I was taking the time to think about my previous writings, particularly with regards to the idea of the "Transhemispheric Approach" (2010),there have been many ideas, opportunities, suggestions that have been found for the betterment of the latino / hispanic populations; the integration and the re-surfacing of latino history as US history. But even as researchers / scientists who feed the brain with information, we called to focus, even as we are well aware of the different facets that exist within this field of research. This thought made me think about the idea of a niche, which is utilized in business terminology. In a similar way: a niche has to also be sought for the purposes of research, innovation and design. This is why I think it is a good idea to find a team of researchers that possess similar interests. Feed, share interests to develop your niche / focus. That will ultimately be useful for the societal good.
We can transfer these thoughts to current examples, when we see / hear activists who are engaged in various different organization. Of course it is good to be involved and put forth a voice. But to make a greater impact we have to find and develop the focus, and build upon that. Because when all is said and done; we are a body with a soul that must exert and utilize our energies wisely. Change / continues improvement for the purposes of social growth, innovation and progress is a mass collective effort. The collective that is made with all the variety of individuals. Providing their expertise, knowledge, skills and talents.
My thoughts to share with love & kindness! :)
