I was listening to the television news this morning. It was playing in the background as I got ready for my day. This is my usual daily routine. I like to have the noise in the background. I am sure it would be healthier for me if I listened to music, but that is another blog for another day.
Today I heard the lovely ladies on Good Morning America discussing the current dramatic state of the American economy. I am sure that you all have noticed. The economy has taken a crap. Things are not good and they are not looking like they are going to be good for awhile still. Anyway...
The point is they had quote after quote of some governmental figure or another discussing how the American population needs to stay confident, be confident, have confidence. Diane Sawyer had a panel of supposed "experts" that she was questioning on this line of thinking. "Can the thought of having confidence actually create real confidence?"
The overwhelming answer to this was yes....
So why as a Witchy woman did this seem so interesting to me? Well, I'll tell you. This premise is something that Pagans have known for a dogs age! This also goes back to a previous post. What you think, you put out there. You create what you think! If you expect the financial situation to improve it will!
Now I understand there is lots of evidence to contradict what I have said here. For every American that wants things to get better there is one that wants things to fail. But what is stronger? What position will prevail? What side do you choose to fall in line with? Do you want to be part of the light or part of the shadow?
I pondered and pondered on this for a long time today. As much as I am skeptical on our government, I choose yes. I choose being in line with the light. I choose being a part of the positive. That is my choice.
