Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

Why is it that the really ugly things in life take priority over the beautiful things? Why is it that the news focuses on death, destruction, war, terrorism, disease, poverty and other dark parts of life? Are there really more bad things than good things in life?

Why is it that the news focuses on death, destruction, war, terrorism, disease, poverty and other dark parts of life? Are there really more bad things than good things in life? Why do we always desire to tear others down to the lowest pits of life?

It takes a concentrated effort to see the good things in life. It takes self discipline and control. It really does. Its so easy to be overwhelmed by the darkness around us. Its very simple to let anger, hatred, jealousy and mistrust rule our lives. I think its one of our tests in life. Can we take all of the bad things and let them flow over us and around us and through us and not effect us? Or do we let the darkness overwhelm us and bring us down into its pit?

So how do we let the darkness wash over us with no aftermath to our own psyche? Well, how about concentrating on the beautiful things in life and the bounty of life. Gratitude for what we have and appreciation for all the good things will overcome all of the negative energy coming at us from the corners of the world. There is a lot in life to be grateful for and there is a lot of beauty in life. Focus on those good things and appreciate them and you will see that the negative energy just bounces off of us as if we are wearing an invisible force field of protection!

The next time something really ugly, negative and dark rears its ugly head in front of you, look around it. What else is around that you can focus your energy on instead? I bet there will be something there that is light, bright and positive. Focus your concentration on that pinhole of light in the darkness. Keep your focus on that light. And pretty soon that dark, negative thing will cease to be at all.
