Television News, and The Prophets Of Wall Street Gloom and Doom

The following excerpt is from a Kris Radio session on Sept. 25th, 2008. You can read more of this and other transcripts at the Kris Chronicles website:

MARK: Okay. Hypothetically, let’s just say that I’m falling into the media, I’m suckered in and I’m watching this and I’m absorbed, it’s, I’ve become passionate and pissed off even, and upset and it’s overwhelming me.

KRIS: Indeed. And in a short amount of time you might start seeing in your life what they talked about.

MARK: Yes. So how do I reverse that?

KRIS: First of all, even if you find yourself unable to completely shut off the tube, there is nothing specifically wrong or inherently wrong in looking at the television, listening to the news. How you allow it to influence your perceptions, your moods, your states of mind is another matter entirely. And if you find that impossible then we suggest you minimize exposure. But if you can see it for what it is, a complete public mass demonstration of beliefs in action, of behavior showing what the beliefs are, and influences altering perceptions, a literal and veritable study in human psychology and consciousness above and beyond the regular teachings of schools of psychology where everything is a number, then you can have quite a buffet table laid out before you. And it will also demonstrate where your own beliefs are aligned, giving you additional advantages to knowing more about whom and what you are. And we believe the latter case is preferable than to being swept away by this flood of manipulations.

MARK: So in other words, I should acknowledge that these are a mass display of beliefs on a public scale, and acknowledge that they’re not my beliefs, and accept them as being very valid, and that’s what I accept.

JOHN: Accept the fact . . .

KRIS: Accepting is a good beginning.

JOHN: Accept yourself for having created it and finding meaning in it.

KRIS: And also accept and acknowledge that you have other meanings that you can bring into your consciousness that are much more fulfilling than those prophecies.

MARK: Okay.

KRIS: The prophets of Wall Street gloom and doom are experts in their game. They’ve been doing this for a long time. Usually it is with one individual after another. When you take it to the next level you have an entire nation in the game. And a game it is, as long as you see it that way. Once you believe that this is the ultimate, end-all reality, then you are suckered in. So be steadfast in your own convictions and steer your perceptions somewhere you want, not somewhere you do not want. Who wants to have those markets crash? You can stem the tide, but it takes cooperation. Do you follow?

MARK: Absolutely.

KRIS: You can make a significant difference in your own personal life as well, and begin there.
