In the article below, Steven Maxwell points out the issues surrounding today’s information overload of content and offers his perspective on how do deal with it. If we consume too much negative content, this negativity can seep into our psyche and begin to fester. And that can’t be a good thing.
While the Internet offers a lot of incredible information that can fuel our spiritual growth, it’s also filled with headlines and stories designed to disempower humanity and push people into states of extreme anger or fear.
Of course, we all need to be aware of what’s going on in the world. But as with most things, there’s a delicate balance between what’s helpful to know – and what’s potentially harmful. True wisdom comes by learning to discern the difference.
The content you consume becomes your reality

“A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.” — James Allen in As A Man Thinketh.
I’m a ravenous consumer of content. I bet you are, too. If we are what we eat, for better or worse, the content we consume becomes our reality. It becomes the story we tell ourselves, the principles we believe in, and it may even determine our health. Some content is detrimental and some is beneficial. Because we’re bombarded with information from every direction, it’s never been more important to carefully curate what we consume.
