Don’t ever let the negative, deceitful media win your mind and heart. There is so much good in the world, and there are millions of people doing beautiful things, regardless of their social status, race, country, or religion.
In the book “Abundance”, there is an entire chapter dedicated to the still-developing brains of the human race, and how we are programmed to respond to negative, fear-based content more than positive, abundant content because our survival-instincts are still on overdrive (as a result of the millions of years of actual fight-or-flight survival). The media preys on this psychological wiring (because eyeballs = dollars), thus shoving fear, hate, and drama down our throats, because it genetically forces us keep watching so we can stay – what we think is – safe, scared, and prepared.
Sadly, this instills the idea in the vast majority of people that the world is overcome with strife, racism, hate, homophobia, war, anger, and fear. This is simply not true. While the world certainly has its share of problems, and its share of terrible people, we are actually living in the healthiest, safest, wealthiest, and most united world in human history. Don’t ever forget it.
Oh, right. And in light of the forthcoming Presidential elections, don’t forget that they, too, prey on those same psychological deficiencies.
Without further adieu, here are a few things to remind you of the inherent positivity and greatness in our world….
Smile…there is good out there.
