Quotes That Make You Go Hmmm...Revisited

Hello Friends,

Hope all is well. I've been only trying hold onto the positive aspects that are in my life. It is hard because I am constantly bombarded with negativity in a normal day. As soon as I turn on the television, we hear about all the wars that are happening in the world. I am told about the celebrity that got in trouble with the police again. In sports the dominant story right now is Barry Bonds and the performance enhancing drug scandal.

I think society as a whole as become numb to all that the media portrays. It has become entertainment to see people suffer and get into accidents. Just look at the top stories during the six o'clock news. We tune in to see who hurting. It's almost as if society has become addicted to watching others hurt.

I would love it if the media would focus more on positive events happening around the world. At least give me a fifty-fifty split between negative news and positive news, so that we have a chance at promoting peace. As it is, we have know chance, because the majority that is portrayed is the negative. The media focuses on the negative and in turn we get more of what they are focusing on.

I've decided that it is better to promote peace and positive thought rather than resisting negativity. If you push against something you will get more of what you are trying to resist because that is where all your thoughts are. Mother Theresa refused to go to anti-war rallies. She said, "point me in the direction of a peace rally, and I'll be the first one there." She understood that if we fight against war, war is going to fight back. Focus on peace to bring about more peace.

One of the ways to replace negative thoughts with positive ones is through laughter. Instead of watching the nightly news rent a comedy or listen to some calming music. I'm not saying that you shouldn't be aware of what is happening in the world. But you don't want to make yourself sick, thinking that world is doomed.

So take time to laugh. Get together with some good friends. Take a walk and enjoy nature. Such activities will put you in a place of appreciation for all that is good in this world.
