You make a very valid point here friend:
We are being indeed ruled by fear... in every sense possible.
I love this term: Fear-Porn.
We are addicted to fear; we seek mediums to express our fear, and to experience fear all the time; both consciously and subconsciously.
Think about all these disaster movies coming out about apocalypses, doomsday, the end of the world. I often think to myself: "How can people actually
enjoy watching these kind of things happening? How come people get such thrill and entertainment from watching people suffer?"
Many new theories, and scientific studies are pointing to the notion that our conscious minds create our reality. We could very much be creating the
apocalypse we fear so much by making it seem like a plausible scenario.
The good news is, however, that fear comes from, and creates negativity. Negativety is the easiest, and possibly one of the most destructive forces
out there... but it is NOT the most powerful.
Positive thoughts and actions are FAR superior to negative actions and thoughts in power. It may not seem so at first, but you simply have to look out
our nature, and you will find many examples of how positive messages and actions carry much more power than negative ones.
For example, lets put up 2 major blockbuster films- Avatar and 2012, and put them against eachother.
Avatar: positive message with positive outcome.
2012: negative message with negative outcome.
Both movies cost millions upon millions of dollars to make... and which one was more succesful?
Avatar of course! It has already made over a billion dollars in 3 weeks!
You could say that Avatar was simply just a better movie; better script, acting, directing, ect., but in reality, what are the factors that cause
these factors to gain success?
Maybe not the best example, but I think it is a good one.
As the motto here is... "go light"
