For a lot of people, paying attention to the mainstream media is a normal part of life. Throughout their day, they will look towards this source of information to tell them about what is taking place in the world.
Providing they have a Smartphone, someone like this can do this no matter where they are or what they are doing. Thanks to the contagion, they may find that they have a greater need than before to find out about what is going on.
If this is so, they are going to spend more time than they did before paying attention to this source of information. Along with this, there are likely to be others who didn’t pay much attention to this source that now do.
So, while a lot of businesses have suffered during this time, some of the businesses that sell information about what is going on in the world are likely to have benefitted. What this shows is that “fear sells.”
The Great Driver
However, although fear will play a part in why someone would spend a lot of time looking towards this source, it doesn’t mean that this source will put their mind at rest. Instead, by consuming so much of this information, they can be in a very bad way mentally and emotionally.
Yet, as their mind will have a diet filled with fear, chaos, drama and impending doom, how could they be any other way? Therefore, they will have an idea about what is going on, but it will come at a great cost to their well-being.
Yet, as behaving in this way can just be what is normal, they might not be able to join the dots, so to speak. And, to go back one step, they might not even be aware of how stressed they are.
If this is so, there will be no reason for them to limit the amount of time that they spend consuming information from this source. For their life to change, they will need to step back from what is going on and to see how destructive it is to their wellbeing.
If they were able to do this, they may see that they are finding it hard to focus and sleep. This can be because they are so caught up in what appears to be happening and what they have been told will happen in the future, along with their minds interpretation of what will happen.
They could find that they are often fearful and anxious and both their mind and heart is often racing. As a result of this, it won’t be possible for them to function at their best and their health could end up deteriorating over time, too.
No Other Option
At this point, it could be said that, due to what is going on, how else could someone be? What is clear is that a lot is going on in the world right now and that a lot of people are suffering.
Consequently, someone could believe that they need to be alert and they have no right to be at peace. On one level, this can sound rational but, on another level, it can sound totally irrational.
No Help Whatsoever
Being aware of what is going on could be seen as important, but if their mental and emotional health suffers, is it really worth it? By being in a bad way, they won’t be able to truly be there for themselves or others.
Moreover, what if what they are being told by this source is not the complete truth? If this is the case, and perhaps they are even being lied to, they will be allowing themselves to be undermined by information that is not even accurate.
A New Reality
When it comes to allowing themselves to be at peace, both themselves and others will benefit from them being this way. Being at peace and centred will most likely allow them to make better decisions and to be of greater service to others.
Another part of this is that if that by not buying into what the media tells them is going on, they won’t be feeding into this reality. They will be feeding into a reality that is very different to what this source says is going on.
What this comes down to is that they, along with their fellow human beings, are not merely passive observers of reality. This is the impression that their ego-mind will give them but it’s an illusion.
This means that what is taking place inside them has an effect on what is going on “out there”. In each moment of their life, then, what is taking place in both their conscious and unconscious mind is shaping their reality and playing a part in what takes place on the planet as a whole.
What this illustrates is how important it is for someone to be aware of what they are focusing on as they, along with their fellow human beings, are playing a part in what does or doesn’t happen on this planet. It can seem as though certain figures are in control of what happens but the only way that their plans can come into fruition is if a large part of the population is consciously and unconsciously feeding into their vision.
Without this creative energy, they wouldn’t have the fuel that they need to be able to materialise their plans. To go even deeper, these kinds of people – the elites - can also be seen as a reflection of what is going on for humanity as a whole and thus, as the consciousness of the planet changes, so will what takes place on the planet.
