A nice video which touches up on the very strong media bias and a bit of our recent discussions here:

That is one reason we have this forum-so we can get a broader view on the information we hear about the world and its events. We have diverse sources here on spiritual portal which can help keep us from having a jaded and one-sided view. I think most of us feel that way.  Wouldn't you agree?

Jitendra

"Come out of your closed views of narrowness. Drink in the fresh air of the vital thoughts and views of other people. Drink vitality;  receive mental nourishment from materially and spiritually Progressive minds. Feast unstintingly on the creative thinking within yourself and others. Take long mental walks on the path of self-confidence. Exercise with the instruments of judgement introspection and initiative. Exhale poisonous thoughts of discouragement, discontentment and hopelessness. Go on ignorance elimination fasts. Refuse to be enslaved by ignorant habits and thoughtless actions. Take up intensive special study and intensive spiritual dieting, and refuse to suffer any longer from the infections of ignorance."

This was quite possibly the most entertaining garbage to get shut down as fast as it has risen.

This isn't about black or white but more a curiosity- who is pushing this agenda and why? A horrible attempt mind you but funny nonetheless.

Here's Lil' Wayne on racism:

I especially like this bit,
"The media is not for information. It's for indoctrination."

Always a little satire from the peanut gallery. Rite?

Actually the most false indoctrination comes right from the white house in late nite tweets. It consists of double think. A technique used by the Trump wrecking crew in which you state a lie enough times and gullible people begin to believe it is true.
These are some common ones the Trump team uses:
1. Take from the poor and give to the rich so America will become great again.
2. Pollute the environment to protect mother earth
3. Increase the military and wars to create peace
4. Take away health care to help people become healthy
5. Increase laws to imprison an over crowded prison system and the largest prison system in the world with punitive judges to
create justice...while at the same time cutting funds for prisons
6. Pardon people who break the law to encourage lawful abiding citizens.
7. Build a wall that the Mexicans will pay for by making the American common citizen pay for it by shutting down the government till its done.

Guys,
I confess you that I'm not following the news anymore. Maybe earthquakes because I'm a geologist, hurricanes beacuse they hold a sinister fascination and sometimes I linger a few seconds on news from the bizzarre leader of North Korea.
But I just got tired of all the news repeating themselves. I'm not interested in Trump nor in global warming nor in domestic policy, for Heaven's sake.

Right now I've maybe egoistically retreated in my little busy world, pursuing householder's chores, healthy regimen, meditation, work, study. I've little concerns about the wider community. People won't change, I've no wish to change people.

I'll get interested only if the wordly event will directly impinge upon my little universe. And only for that limited time.

Your a cool guy and we enjoy your company and if i lived in Italy i doubt that i would b interested in what's happening in the states. I was born here for certain karmic reasons and i believe i was here in a recent incarnation as well so i feel a responsibility to the effects of this country on the world. I also do not think it was by coincidence that u came here and consequently we have met. More importantly i feel a responsibility towards my consciousness and its influence on where i live and those i encounter.

Mccoy we are in a vast and different world then we grew up in. As a young man i saw how SRF was involved in projects helping the community. It was not just their concerns they stuck to but also those around them and there are examples i can give to prove it. If it were not for the concern of Babaji and Sri Yukteswar these teachings and their influence would have never come to the west. As i came in contact with Amma i found her concern reached far beyond India for the earth as in planting trees and helping in all major disasters on the earth as well as building medical facilities and homes for the poor and homeless and many many other projects. In fact when i see her she prays and has us pray for the beings of all worlds...strongly implying the existence of many beings in many worlds. In this way we expand our own consciousness as well - by being concerned with those beyond the confines of our small little world we confine ourselves in socially, space-wise and more importantly spiritually.

Now we can communicate at a distance on this planet with relative ease and we see the interconnection of all beings and countries on this planet.  i am also interested in the fact that Amma will soon be in Italy again and await the day she gets back here and our connection with you and Italy. Amma: Now there's a human being worth trusting!
