Like it or not, we are in the middle of an all out war on consciousness. But which side will win?
Talk about a dichotomy – we’re playing out both good and evil in ways unimaginable these days.
Have you ever wondered why the media (MSM) barrages the newscast with the ugliest, nastiest, and wickedest of stories? Forget the old news adage, “If it bleeds, it leads.” As I said in my interview with veteran news man Dan Rather, “These days, if it doesn’t bleed, it doesn’t make the cut!”
I know, the “savvy” know that good news doesn’t sell.
I beg to differ. Moreover, good news seems to be at a premium these days, or so the media would have you think.
The fact is, that good news and “bad” news are running neck-in-neck, battling for airtime (oxygen) – duking it out in an all out war on consciousness.
Here’s a website that I recently found, determined to find some news of the altruistic kind while preparing for this latest episode of Conscious Commentary…
SunnySkyz.com is a portal dedicated to the whimsical, and the wonderful. The acts of kindness that unfortunately go mostly unnoticed to the casual observer. Here’s one story that I felt particularly heart-warming: Wallet with $1600 in Cash returned by a “stranger.”
But good news stories exist, probably far more than you might think. In fact, when I visited SS’s companion Facebook page, curious to see how many fans its managed to fetch, I was pleasantly surprised to find an audience in excess of 300K. Of course this wouldn’t hold a candle to the likes of some celebrity, gossip or “bad news” FB pages with likes well exceeding 30 million!
Nonetheless, my surmise is that people are hungering for happiness. Odd as it may be, the pervasiveness of evil may just be driving people harder to find what somehow got lost in the shuffle. In some strange chasm of reality, the ugly of the world may just be doing a service to humanity!
In this episode of Conscious Commentary, we’ll examine the dichotomy of good and evil, the war on consciousness, and where all of this may be leading!
