Okey, dokey. I’m new to all this blog thing and I’ve been putting off my first entry ‘cos I’ve no idea what to say. So, errrrr………..I know. I’ve had the idea over the last few days to put some sort of Headlines page on this site, but headlines about nice things. I read alot of stuff about things that are going on in the world, particularly concerning the ‘Big Brother’ state that we seem to be allowing to happen before our eyes. It’s something we could all do with knowing more about and I usually read articles by David Icke, Nexus Magazine and InfoWars and wherever I surf that cybernet wave. If you don’t know much about what these sites offer then I think they are good places to start if you’re interested in that kind of thing.

Lately, I’ve come round to the idea that, to a large extent, what we focus upon in our lives becomes our experience. I think focusing upon all the bad things going on in the world kind of helps create more of the same. I honestly think this is why the news is geared towards those things which instill fear in the populace because people focus on those events and create those things which in turn allows the powers-that-be to bring in laws that seek to extend their control over us. It’s common knowledge among the elite of the world that if you have a society in fear then it’s people will turn to what they perceive as a greater power (eg. a government) for protection.

Anyway, I just think focusing on things that are more positive could help make the world a better place. I’m not Christian and no big fan of the bible but there are some great sayings/stories in it that particularly spring to mind here. In Philippians 4:8 it says: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Another is the story (which may come from The Apocrypha) where Jesus is walking with his disciples and they come across a dead and decaying dog. The disciples comment on the stench from the dog but Jesus says, ‘How white are its teeth!’. I see this story simply as an admonishment for us all to seek in things that which are good, no matter how small. I know that’s easier said than done, but it’s something worth practicing.

So, as much as I read all those articles that I mentioned in the first paragraph, I kind of get fed up with it all at times. I’d love there to be more happy stories or positive news around instead of all the doom and gloom. Maybe it’s because the first warm days of Spring have arrived, but it’s nice to have a little light and sunshine in the things I read and see. Keep yer’ eyes peeled folks!

So, did I do ok for my first blog? Huh, huh? Go on, say something nice. I know its hard, but I’m sure you can dig something out.

Until next time,

Jimbob.
