Have you noticed how much negativity there is out there right now?

I am stunned by the number of people who have fed in to the main stream media's propaganda about the shape of our economy and world. And how rapidly their professions of gloom and doom have come to pass.

I have been practicing the Law of Attraction and I see it at work on the broad scale - even though it is unconsciously being practiced - by the masses.

What's going on appears to me to have a lot to do with our view, beliefs and teachings. Our mind set.

Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning. Mahatma Gandhi
e have been taught that if a doctor tells you that you have an illness, you should believe him/her. If they give you a prescription it will make you feel better - but as we have all experienced, that isn't always the case. Seldom do people ask for a second opinion, seldom do we stand up for our rights.

We have bought in to believing the main stream media - they would never lie to us...

The main stream media can make a gloom and doom story out of just about anything, take this weeks visit by US President Barack Obama. If you watched any of the coverage, you'd swear that his visit was almost an embarrassment to our country - an after thought.

The busiest man in the world these days has to be Barack Obama, how in the heck can a visit that was scheduled at the end of January when he was sworn in be looked upon as anything but a show of respect and an acknowledgement of our role in the US economy and defending North America?

Yet, if you listened to CBC, they'd have you believe that the 6 hours that this man took out of his busy time to come talk to our Prime Minister was viewed that way. While I generally love Rex Murphy and his quirky way of viewing our world, I felt even he was trying to some how discredit the US President and his visit here.

It would appear that the main stream media likes to turn anything positive into more gloom and doom.

They have done a great job of making people scared, scared of terrorism, scared of economic upheaval, scared of their own governments and shadows.

Through the fear mongering that has gone on, we are seeing their prophecies come true. They constantly love to report to death - ad nauseum how bad things are and are going to get.

The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make heaven of Hell, and a hell of Heaven - John Milton

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment - Marcus Aurelius

Too many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity. They seem to be more afraid of life than death - James F. Bymes
I ascribe to the thought that what you experience is what you are thinking about - so if you are thinking of the gloom and doom - go outside, sing a song, watch a comedian - remember how to laugh and through that how to feel joy - the universe will bring you more things to feel joyous about.

Have a wonderful and joyous day...
Stay safe and warm.

  1. A florist my foot. I think you were/wre a philosopher and a great Journalist. Your comments are bang on.
    This country is gone too far to the left and a dose of real reality is in order. Will it ever come? who knows...It's the mind set as you so properly and rightly said and claimed.
    Rex Murphy's comments are sometimes good but usually tend to spread gloom and doom...that's his job and it's all about selling newspapers and of course the network....We're heading to disaster if we let the politicians and yes the Rex Murphy's of this world take us there.
    Canadians are generally an intelligent breed and will eventually figure it out...hopefully before it's too late.
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. It is much appreciated
