Media, Politics and Fear

I hope everyone had a great weekend either spending time outside or spending time with loved ones. I know it is easy to get caught up in all what is going on and we can even become frustrated. However, it is important to stay focused on the positive and health rather than taking the easy route of criticizing and judging the current situation. It is good to stay informed with the current news but not be hypnotized by it. Where we place our attention is where we place our energy. When we place our attention on the fear of the virus and what could go wrong we fuel that fire. When we place our attention on the strength of our bodies and what is good in our life we will get more of that in our life. 

    When we place our focus on the media, politics, and news we become victims of something outside of us. The fear that has been promoted so much has kept our attention on the very thing that is weakening us. It is easier to just give in and keep being in a state of fear thinking that they are doing the best thing for us. This “dark” side is what has crippled people with fear and fear is a very powerful emotion responsible for much suffering, illness and death. However, finding out that there is so much misinformation out there it is difficult to know who is right and who is wrong. Instead of looking outside for the answers, it’s time to look within and realize the awesome force within us.

    All of us have this innate intelligence or force inside of us that is keeping our bodies healthy. However, when we have too much stress from the three different areas such as the nutritional, physical and emotional/thought areas, we inhibit this force from working properly. This force keeps your heart beating, your breath going, your digestion working assimilating the foods that you eat to make up your very own body, and so many other processes that we are not aware of throughout the day. This force helps defend us from the millions of “bugs” out there keeping everything in perfect harmony. Just sit and think about that. Everyone has this amazing life force within you but many people disregard it not knowing that they are in control to work with this inner force. When we start to understand better how to use the force within, we can ultimately live healthy and happy. 

    Let’s focus on our health so we can be strong enough to withstand the outside forces such as a virus. When we respect the force within us we are able to express vitality and health. Keep our focus on the good and we will bring good. May the Fourth (force) be with all of you. 
“You will know (the good from the bad) when you are calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.” — Yoda
