― Anne Frank
Several media issues of late have reminded me how easily focus on the positive and good works in the world can be overshadowed by sensational headlines of the day.
To see a headline and consider that a statement of "reality" is limiting. No matter how juicy, dramatic, emotionally charged or even accurate - a headline is a perception limited to a very tiny window in time.
News is designed to manufacture interest and drive ratings. No more, no less. There is no direct intention in the news to present solutions or remedy world dilemmas. The goal is simply to present content deemed worthy of social merit and perceived value as ratings fodder. As such, drama, controversy, social ills and woes are front and center and ascribed facts represent works in progress that often point to what is wrong rather than what is succeeding or beneficial to the greater good. Bleeding leads remain the norm.
Thus, many who focus strictly on the headlines will find the positive and good news of the day relegated to a "feature" or a "kicker". That placement gives a slanted view to say the least.
As a former news broadcaster, I can say delivering a daily churn of negativity, death and mayhem, peppered with constant buying prompts can create a dour outlook, not to mention the sense of lack of self-worth and helplessness embedded within the perpetual programming to spend money to fix things that may not be broken and heal non-existent health problems. Programming is an amazing thing.
Solution: Either disengage from the drama completely or limit your dose and spend more quality time living, participating and dreamweaving your wonderful life.
Reminder: Your time here is valuable and finite. Each and every issue you allow to hijack your mental focus on worthy endeavors (those activities, thoughts and projects that give life joy and being worth) robs you of the creative energy and drive to seek and celebrate the magic, wonder and joy playing out across the world canvas.
1/Feed the positive in every thought. 2/Restrict the negative as a limited diet. Both energies will remain ever-present in the playing field. However, you will sense the difference in your outlook and your quality of life.
3/Allow that which needs upgrading and refining a chance to float away on the cosmic stream of miscreation and embrace a dynamic energetic environment in which your thoughts influence all within your sphere of contact.
You are the spark in the moment, the light in the flame and the illumination for those who have yet to turn the corner and stop the darkness from taking hold. Your mind is the key to your liberation. Priceless and powerful - never hesitate to engage it and return it to active procreative duty.
Dream a world evolving into an amazing state where wonder is celebrated and all beings are valued and worthy... Ideas are the fuel in creation.
An imagination fully harnessed and empowered is exactly what is needed to give passage to incredible dimensions and engage untold enigmas our collaborators on the collective consciousness planes are calling us to reveal.
Fuel your mind to fan the flames of wonder and journey to the infinite - leave a legacy to the eternal fire of faith and belief in the potential existence of a world worthy of creation.
We humans are charged
with a very specific role at this time,
to reveal the magic hidden in plain sight.
A far greater challenge
than it might seem,
to see the dark in every day
and remain light.
