All is Well And I Have Enough

Yesterday Steve made the following comment about the post, Is Advertising Making Us Poor?

We recently watched “Finding Nemo” on network TV. I was floored. It was nearly impossible to watch with all the commercial breaks. We decided to time it as I was sure the breaks were longer than the movie bits. Sure enough, eight minutes of Nemo, and 13 minutes of advertising. Unbelievable. No wonder kids have ADD, and want everything they see.

Isn’t amazing what we’ve learned to put up with? I say - Turn off the TV!

First we’re bombarded with advertising to buy, buy, buy, and then we’re barraged by headlines saying that the economy is tanking. I think we need a national media black-out day where everyone just lives their lives and listens to their heart instead of media. Whatever we focus on expands.

Let’s all start thinking - All is well and I have enough!

Would our world change if we all collectively changed our thinking? My gut says YES.

Let’s get a dialogue going on this topic. What do you think?
