Great thread as always sled!
Some fun facts about me
I don't watch TV accept yesterday for some reason and all I heard was ISIS, ISIS, ISIS (yes just like the thread).
I am surrounded by woodland creatures.
I meditate often.
I rarely have a hard time falling asleep but I am usually up after 5 to 6 hours. As soon as my mind realizes its back from wherever it goes at night,
it wastes no time getting the day started.
The above behaviors as well as other experiences have shaped me into who I am today and for that I am grateful. I think focusing on "my body is my
temple" is of paramount import and one I rarely acknowledge but have spent some time as of late reexamining how I treat my body. I need to get past
simply looking at my body as just a tool for my soul because I feel its that position that leads me to discard health and wellness, after all its just
an avatar right?
What I found interesting about TV programming after not watching it for some time, was the obvious attempts of manipulating our wants and desires at
all times. Aside from the ISIS charade yesterday, about 2 weeks ago I was watching the boob tube at a friends and it was some witch show, I believe
it was called "Salem's Witch" or something. It had already started before I came in but first images was of two beautiful witches seducing an old
man. It was very provocative and then it went to commercial break where every commercial was selling sex in one form or another. The key interesting
point of all of it was that sex was used as a pedestal or a coveted prize....something to lust after and distract us from what's really important in
life. I thought to myself as I was watching my friends and their children become completely enthralled by the show, just how these children are being
programmed to lust after sex and how it is used to manipulate others. After sharing my thoughts my friend became defensive (protecting the ego) and
said to me: "Well, Game of Thrones" is just as bad". Although I have seen the series and find some entertainment value, I agree that it is one of
the same as Salem's Witches, et. al. but the difference is I know what I am watching and see the messaging laid out within. What I find interesting
in Game of Thrones is the not so subtle correlations to MK Ultra type programming like what happens to one of the Lanisters I believe....
I have another friend who's kid loves GTA and was consumed by it. 90% of his toys is toy guns and knives and I got an image burned into my brain one
day when I saw him riding a big wheel down the sidewalk with a plastic machete in hand and a big grin on his face. The image got to me and after
having a few talks with dad about it, thankfully, did the right thing as a parent and got rid of the game and went a step further and got rid of his
cable also. Granted the kid still has his toys and all that but perhaps he will at least receive a little less programing and may have a fighting
chance of being himself instead of the ego that stands in our stead.
In closing, TV is by far the worst thing for mankind.
