Have you been seeing more problems around you lately? It’s hard to think of a time in the past when it seems the entire world was so upset. If we continue to feed our minds on all the slanted and bias stories in the media this agitation can greatly affect our personal lives.
There is an old metaphysical principle that states what we focus on increases. The question is, How we can stay informed, but not allow that knowledge to paralyze us in life? There are two main ways we can do this.
FIRST: Be mindful of how we are spending our time. It’s so easy to get caught up in the media hype and often fake news reports. We can ask ourselves if what we are hearing applies to us; or, is it just what amounts to a juicy piece of gossip that will lead us away from our own vision and mission in life?
SECOND: Find things in our lives for which to be thankful. This doesn’t mean we run around with a perennial smile on our face, oblivious to the issues in our lives or the problems in our community. It does mean that we begin to give thanks for what’s working in our lives instead of everything else that other people and mass marketers want us to focus on.
By cultivating what we desire in our lives, instead of constantly looking for the next worst thing online, we set a firm foundation of peace that allows us to more fully serve others around us.

The coming weeks before year’s end will place us in celebrations of love, family and friendship. Whether or not we will allow recent and current events to affect our experience is up to us!
