Mainstream Media is KILLING you | How to make the shift
Too much of anything is never a good thing, too much of a shit thing is a freaking catastrophe. We have been tricked into believing that it is normal or acceptable to numb ourselves with mainstream media. Do you honestly think that the Kardashians hold the key to your success or fulfilment in life? Do you honestly think that playing minecraft all day is going to help your develop as a human being? Of course not, but people do it anyway. The people who become successful choose to play the game of life, and not the game in their PS4, they choose to go after that which is real, and not that which is virtual.
There are countless problems with mainstream media that we can discuss. You have to understand that a lot of the stuff you see on TV has been deliberately made to be easily digestible and addictive, kind of like a chocolate bar. You know that too much chocolate is not good for you, and you try control yourself when exposed to it’s deliciousness, so why do you not control yourself when exposed to the more potent mainstream media? Ignorance is what allows us to indulge in the low consciousness vibration of Miley Cyrus twerking on stage at the MVA’s ( I wonder what Marcus Aurelius would say about it). If we knew our true potential we would be disgusted at the idea of wasting time on the bullshit that is shoved in our face left and right.
A rather annoying ad has been popping up all over the Internet of Tai Lopez talking about ‘KNOWLEDGE’. Although the ad has been played ad nauseam it does have a valid point about the importance of acquiring knowledge. Reading and learning from the great thinkers of our time and those preceding them is a fundamental step in our own self actualization. You can not see through the bullshit of mainstream media, or learn about how the world truly works by yourself, you need knowledge from all branches of human study: History, physics, philosophy, politics, etc. There is a saying that goes ‘ to the man with a hammer, every problem is a nail’, this is why you need to gain knowledge from different fields of knowledge so that you are better equipped than the man with just his hammer.
I invite you to try and think a little deeper about life, and to try broaden your mind. The mainstream media might be enjoyable to indulge in, but at what cost? What is the price you are really paying for choosing to accept and not question. How different will your life be if you knew the folly of what you were doing? The Realized Men and Women understand the true value of self-education, and are cautious about what they let enter their mind. The mind is like your body, the bodies aesthetics if reflected from the quality of food you eat, as well as the amount of exercise you do, the mind is adorned by the amount of work you put into developing it, and the stimuli you allow into it. Guard your mind.
