Monday Morning Motivation

Television attempts to make us feel empty inside.

Not the actual programming. That exists to attract enough eyeballs to sell to advertisers. It's advertisers who interrupt your fixated gaze with messages that make you feel shortcomings that will compel you to buy their product or service.

It even affects those who swear they're not swayed.

You'll probably want to mute the commercials and look away. Later, you might want to abandon this drug-administered-through-the-eyeballs all together. Watch your optimism and hope return.

If you want to be a beacon of truth and profoundly influence those you touch; if you see a patient's ache or pain as merely a way for strangers to enter your sphere of influence and be enlightened, inspired and affirmed, stop watching the boob tube. Be in the world, but not of it. Be the spicy, salty rebel you are.

Like many drugs, it's not good for you.

Tony Russo:

Unfortunately, I'm addicted. I'm addicted to the inane Jersey Shores, the insane Real Housewives of New Jersey...and I'm from Windsor Ontario! There's nothing "real" about these "reality" shows, nothing. Then why do I keep watching them instead of finishing off the last book I'm reading by Rabbi Danial Lapin, Thou Shalt Prosper?
