In my last post, Creating Our Own Reality, I wrote about how we need to STOP CONSENTING to letting other, corrupted factions dictate the reality around us. I refuse to be a part of this system, and I refuse to let them use other innocent souls for their agenda as well.
However, the whole dichotomy behind ‘free will’ creates a paradox that could be infringing upon other people’s free will (within their soul level) to experience said agendas. Perhaps it is all part of the “Big Plan”.
I, on the other hand, if this is the case, opt out of this “Big Plan”, and instead want to live in a world where suffering and wickedness don’t exist, and those who do choose this path do so of their own free will. The others who don’t wish to live in this corruption or hellish realm may opt to leave as well.
But how do we do this?
As well as saying NO to all of these immoral establishments and their depraved agendas, there are many other ways to working towards a different reality. (Which I will cover more in depth in a future post.)
But in this one, I am looking at one, very essential circumstance that points to us as a collective whole as one of the reasons why negativity and hate seem so prevalent in our every day lives and perhaps the reason that these “powers that shouldn’t be” keep pushing certain agendas our way. The other methods are more of a personal development that I believe we should all work towards. But for this one, we can work through it simply by not participating in their (our) system of ‘mind control’ and perception.
As many studies have indicated, most people are inherently attracted to negative news instead of the positive. Which obviously keeps them in a state of low-vibration/energy than if they were actively seeking (and creating) positive experiences.
Think about it. If ALL you see on tv, social media, in the news, etc., etc., etc. is ‘negative’, our way of thinking will automatically be hard-wired to believing that the whole world is an evil, hateful place to live in.
And even if you, personally, don’t watch the news, there are many other ways in which these bad news gets around:
– social media
– daily conversations
– taught in schools
– church sermons
So the efforts to escape this form of negativity, while it could be minimized, may not be diminished completely.
But why does most of the news always seem so focused in negative and depressing headlines to begin with?
The truth of the matter is, negative news gains more attention and views than heart-warming, touching stories. Sad, but true. There have even been studies, social experiments, and research done on this very topic.
I’ve covered facebook in previous posts manipulating their users by showing them either positive or negative content, and you could read about more of their social experiments here, Facebook’s Fascinating (and Disturbing) History of Secret Experiments, one of which include Massive-Scale Emotional Contagion.
And a few others that shed further light can be found at the following sites:
Now, although the studies and research/hypothesis above highlight why our attention is so diverted towards the bad side of the news, the social experiment that a Russian news outlet decided to run wanted to see just how much of a difference that only showing “good” news would play out upon the public.
According to The City Reporter (cityreporter.ru), when they attempted to show only positive news reports for a day (or at least, show negative news in a positive light: “No disruption on the roads despite snow”, for example) the results were rather disheartening.
The readership dropped by 2/3rds that day. A whopping 66%. – Here’s what happened when a news site only reported good news for a day
Knowing that ‘bad news’ and sensational articles gets more viewerships, rather than positive, uplifting ones, it sadly doesn’t surprise me that City Reporter lost some views that day. But to the extent that it did, was incredibly shocking and very disappointing.
Indeed, I have noticed the same thing with this very own site that most of the uplifting, encouraging, positive posts I write get bypassed, while the negative, bitter expositions I’ve written get a lot more attention.
Naturally speaking, we have an instinctive drive to know the possible dangers around us as a survival mechanism. Which all in all, isn’t a bad thing. And while it’s important to remain informed and knowledgeable about what’s going on in the world, we need to realize that our FOCUS should not entirely depend upon these fear-inducing, emotionally draining, stress-creating content.
So who’s ultimately really to blame here for keeping the population in the dark (literally and figuratively) and perpetuating the belief that the world is full of negativity and violence? Is it the news media inundating us with all of these terrible, stressful situations? Are they compelled to create false flag events just to create even more fodder to attract the population’s attention?
Does the blame lie on us for our continued drawn attention to it?
After all, if the City Reporter’s efforts to show positivity in a day drew more viewership and readers, then perhaps news media around the world would jump on the same bandwagon and start showing more heart-warming, uplifting news stories, rather than doom and gloom and staged gun shootings, for example.
So what is the key takeaway from all of this?
We do this to ourselves, ladies and gentlemen. When we can finally come to the truth of this matter, and realize that we are maintaining our own bitter reality, and finally start working our way out of it, will real change begin and we can see a better, more hopeful future.
By the majority of the population continuing the focus on negativity, hate, division, “bad news”, stress, etc., etc., etc., it is creating an endless cycle in which people actually expect and, in a way, look forward, to seeing bad news in the media.
Can we steer away from this paradigm and actually actively seek and make our own news that guides us to creating more good news and restores faith and hope within all of us? Can we decide to choose which content we indulge in that will give us a better, healthier and more enlightening thought inclinations, rather than being stuck with negative news bombarding us at every turn?
We do have that choice. While it may seem that humanity is instinctively designed to wanting to know bad news in order to prepare for the worst, we must also be aware of the damaging effects it has on not only our mental state, but our physical and spiritual state as well.
We must also be aware that all of the negativity we’re consuming may not even be an accurate representation of our world, but instead an embellishment, an exaggeration, of what’s really going on. This is probably orchestrated in order to keep us in a designated mindset of hopelessness and despair, which further continues this harmful cycle.
Cutting back on this negative outside influence by pursuing light, happy, positive information can have extremely healing and beneficial effects.
Even though the study that City Reporter engaged in showed that their readership dropped by 66% that day, the Guardian also initiated their own form of a similar experiment, this time showing positive results.
Why were these two outcomes so different? Is it a matter of different countries’ perspective? Were people just getting tired of all the bad news and realizing that some good news was a nice, refreshing deviation from all the negativity and pessimism that they were used to seeing?
Regardless of the reason, coming to the realization that we are surrounded by deliberately manipulated news outlets pushing negativity onto us, and the realization that a lot of us are attracted to this sort of material to begin with, will hopefully open our eyes to that fact and that we have the very conscious decision to start pursuing more worthwhile and valuable connections and change our negative inclinations, to positive, uplifting ones.
While there’s no way to really change anyone else and their mentality or thought process, it all boils down to us as a single individual, doing the right thing for what’s best for everyone else. I can’t change you, or anyone else. But YOU can change you.
The world is literally in your hands. Are you going to keep dwelling in the negativity and horrors of it all? Or are you going to stand up and say ENOUGH! and start looking towards being more positive, loving and forgiving, and developing this effort worldwide? The choice is up to you.
Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
