Colombian Caribbean

The Caribbean summit Maicao rarely the University of La Guajira in Maicao headquarters had housed so many illustrious visitors in a single day. That February 19 the people had the opportunity to get close to characters whose faces were familiar to him only by what they had heard of them, or pictures from newspapers or television appearances. Senators, governors, constitutional, judges and experts in the field, spent a whole day to talk about the Caribbean and on the chances of becoming an autonomous region in the light of Article 306 of the Constitution. In their speeches the president of Congress, Javier Caceres and Governor of the Atlantic, Eduardo Verano De la Rosa, explained that a road has been very difficult, because in the 19-year life of the Magna Carta, the initiative has sunk 18 times for various reasons, which is almost to have been tripped each year. However, the background, away from those who have been cowed in the autonomy a solution to the backwardness of the region, the motivation to continue in a struggle whose next move is embodied in the query without binding to be held March 14, on the same date of the elections to elect representatives and senators to the chamber of the republic. The site chosen for the summit was Maicao, a cosmopolitan city but with deep indigenous roots.

Why Maicao, asked someone and rightly so, because in the Caribbean there are eight departmental capitals (Maicao not) and most populated municipalities and probably better able to host an event of this category. The reason is simple: Maicao has a strategic geographical position po9r its proximity to the border and the North Sea and west of the Guajira Peninsula, but also for what it represents to be the first point of the Colombian Caribbean in the north-eastern area . In this land of stone, dust and cactus begins the geography of the country and starts to pound the Caribbean. The Caribbean is also a territory, a set cultural and linguistic concepts that enable you to identity around values that are common in eight departments united in a way of being, feeling and acting. The people united in their costenol Caribbean is a kind of dialect derived from Spanish but spoken in the style of the inhabitants of each of the subregions within the triangle whose vertices are the corners of Cordoba and Antioquia limits with a runner on Cesar near Santander, in addition to the perennial romance Guajira in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the islands of San Andres and Providencia where the Caribs feel for the four cardinal points and is on the face of each of its inhabitants and in each of the letters that make up the large book in its history. The summit ended with a task: adding a million votes or more to strike a blow your mind and create a political history that can not be unknown. One million votes to realize a region where the accordion, cumbia, Junior, Indian blood, the African roots and cassava as the unifying element in their food, make up a people with indissoluble bonds of affection and closeness.

Positive Thinking

Second Idea: It was discovered that the mind is like an iceberg. The 5% that sticks to the surface is the conscious mind, the part we control, where our skills (behavior, skills and knowledge) and our five senses, which can be measurable and observable. The other 95% is also called the unconscious mind or superconscious, part of the brain that does things that we do not realize (blinking, breathing, heartbeat, digestion, etc..) Here is our 6th sense (the intuitive) , our values, needs, motivations, feelings and emotions. yQue has to do with the attitude? Our unconscious mind dominates our attitudes, is like a laboratory that governs our mood. In every situation we live in, our unconscious acts by releasing a chemical that makes you react in certain ways.

Reflection: If we had a way of controlling this part of our mind, would have the key to generate a new attitude. But yComo do? The unconscious functions like a computer: Follow the orders literally, to the letter. It does not analyze, it can delve into something good or bad. There is no sense of humor. Just as the computer is programmed with programming languages, the unconscious is also programmable. yComo schedule? By means of two mechanisms: thought and language, all that you think and you’ll talk daily programming. Example: If you wake up in the morning and say a que flojeraa , it becomes a physiological reaction (to the letter), it asks you what (not analyzed) and as no sense of humor as you scrub, is likely to have lazy all day However, if you will start your day programandote yourself in words how, a tengo much energiaa , a the day is perfectoa , etc., the physiological response will be positive and your day will be different. Reflection: A real change in our attitude is not achieved in the overnight, the mind must be strengthened daily. In the third part of this series, which will be published shortly, will give you some tips to strengthen your mind and make a real difference in your attitude.
