What will you create with your mind today, your dreams and aspirations, or your worries and fears? If the people running mass mainstream media these days have their way, it will be the latter.
What our minds focus on expands, so the minds that remain concentrated on the mass media are helping to manifest that proposed reality. The problem is, the agenda is increasingly one-sided and controlling. (In a universe built on infinite possibilities, how can this be a good thing?) However, even for the ones who realize we don’t want such a limited reality, we also help to perpetuate it if we only focus on what we “don’t want”.
For example, not wanting global domination is not the same as wanting freedom. I hope that you see the fine distinction there. While it is necessary to see and acknowledge what we do not want, our minds must not focus endlessly on it. We must turn away, and put our minds to creating its expansive antithesis. Otherwise, we may become stuck in an irreversible black hole of limitation.
