Whatever we see enters our heart and starts to drive our perceptions after that. People go to great lengths to protect their children from poisonous images that will warp their sense of reality; at least, the ones that are obvious. But what about the ones that we don’t detect?
We are constantly being exposed to the poisonous images and being unconscious of the effects. Young girls like romantic novels that foster the idea that their prince will come on a white horse and rescue them; a prince who just wants to love and care for them. Of course, that is just a fantasy. Children programming nowadays always show teens who have adult relationships, manage school work and are somehow happy. Plus, they are usually smarter than their parents who often leave them unattended.
The reality is of course, VERY different but those images create a mentality that cannot accept reality as the truth. Children who think there is another or better way cannot accept the truth and as a result become uncontrollable. Adults are no different. Many forms of modern music present an idea that money is the key to happiness. For ladies, the idea is that being sexy is the key to happiness and for some having multiple sexual partners means you are progressive and hip.
These images are literally driving the way we think to the extent that we are the sum of what we are exposed to. Since we can’t control what we see or even hear: I mean, we DO have to live in this world, how do we separate fact from fiction? Well, where children are concerned, We have to manage what they see. Although we can’t block every negative image, we can gain their trust and be the voice of reason, helping them to separate truth from fiction.
On another side, there are some things we don’t consider negative because it’s all “normal”, like for some ladies, breastfeeding in a public is fine for some and for others it isn’t. Dressing young girls in tight and short clothing and coupling that with unsupervised pairing with the opposite sex may seem harmless; because they are young. Yet when they are just as free when they are older we are surprised or disappointed when they seem overtly lustful.
Some persons say they don’t listen to the lyrics of a song, they just enjoy the rhythm or beat. That’s not practical, the words of the song ride the music into our subconscious. If we are continually listening to violent or lustful lyrics or play violent video games it just takes the right mix of circumstances for that subliminal programming to kick in. We become what we feed our minds so we also need to manage what we feed our minds. That is, what we are exposed to. So, yes we agree that we can’t be unexposed but that means we need to seek that balance.
There has to be some voice of reason: a voice that advises us against what pulls us. Whether we listen to it or not is another issue. What we are exposed to affects how we perceive the world. We have already been exposed to things that have already tainted our view of the world. Knowing this, we need another voice that we can trust: another voice, a friend or someone you can trust and listen to, another voice other than our own. That’s how we can live a sober life. Don’t just trust your own opinions and be careful what you feed your mind![/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDc3R5bGUlM0UlMEEuZW50cnktdGh1bWIlMjBpbWclMjAlN0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBtYXgtaGVpZ2h0JTNBJTIwNDAwcHglM0IlMEElN0QlMEElMEEucG9zdC1jb250ZW50JTIwJTdCJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwdGV4dC1hbGlnbiUzQSUyMGp1c3RpZnklM0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjB0ZXh0LWp1c3RpZnklM0ElMjBpbnRlci13b3JkJTNCJTBBJTdEJTBBJTNDJTJGc3R5bGUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row]
