What if – just for 7 days – you didn’t turn on the radio, the television, or the cell phone, and you stopped buying and reading newspapers and magazines?
Have you ever thought about what effect it might have on you over those 7 days?
No distractions from what you really want – or need – to be doing.
No false sense of ‘urgency’.
No media-imposed ‘sheep mentality’.
No constant external ‘yammering’, either visual or audible.
No audio or visual horrors of deaths, robberies, murders and wars
No illegal subliminal messages being planted in your mind
No political lies
No constant reminders of time passing by
No commercialism hounding us to buy, buy, buy things we don’t need
No fake astrology garbage telling us how woeful our day will be
No fashion police
No ‘social’ propaganda, herding us like sheep, telling us what to think, believe and feel, according to the latest socially acceptable fads.
No singers or celebrities pushing their financial/political agendas or guilt trips, or belting out tunes of misery and woe to bring you down.
No news of tragedy.
Peace! Sheer peace!
Life suddenly becomes a whole lot less complicated.
You’d be able to:
Hear yourself think
Feel your muscles instinctively relax
Actually notice the sounds of nature – birds, bees, etc.
You’d be able to notice/smell/feel the roses, the breeze against your skin, the rain on your face.
You’d actually be able to make your own decisions and think your own thoughts without media influence.
I don’t think people realize just how negatively all those extra things influence their spiritual, mental and physical health.
For my own part, I stopped doing those things 3 years ago. I don’t turn on a radio, don’t watch television, don’t buy or read newspapers and magazines – and if I want to watch a movie, I play a dvd on my computer.
I could almost feel my body and mind sigh with relief the day I evicted all forms of media from my home and stopped allowing it to control my life.
So what if you don’t hear every blow-by-blow, gory, detail about a war? Is knowing about it going to make it stop? No.
So what if you never hear about the death of a politician or celebrity the instant it occurs. Is knowing about it the instant they die, going to make them any less dead? No.
So what if tragedy has occurred somewhere? Does knowing about it the instant it occurs, make it not have occurred? No.
So what if Madam Muck deems the clothes on your back are ‘outdated’. Does her opinion stop you from wearing clothes at all until you can ‘tow the fashion line’? No.
So what if you didn’t hear your fake astrology reading for the day on the radio, or read it in the local newspaper. Does it mean you’ll be unable to get through your day? No.
Are any of those things absolutely necessary to the quality of your life? No. In fact, to the contrary; they actually harm your quality of life.
Best of all, the media and rampant commercialism would cease to control your life because it will have ceased to have any control or power over your mind, thoughts and emotions..
Politicians would actually have to get their hands dirty by keeping their promises and being in genuine contact with the people, instead of using media razzamatazz to win elections for them with lies.
Would ‘evicting’ the media from your life mean you couldn’t get to work or do your job? No.
Would ‘evicting’ the media from your life mean you couldn’t feed and clothe yourself? No.
Would ‘evicting’ the media from your life mean you’d be living in darkness? No.
Quite the contrary.
You’d be able to actually breathe, have more clarity of thought, make your own decisions free from outside influences, enjoy your day (where appropriate and depending on your job), and remove a great deal of stress from your life.
Most importantly, if there’s something important you need to know, it will always reach you and be brought to your attention.
Why not try ‘evicting’ the media from your home for 7 days, and see for yourself what a difference it can make? It might just surprise you!
