Doesn't today's shooting news ties into this topic a bit? This story is big, maybe you should hear about, but in Salt Lake City it doesn't really matter. So do you spend hours and hours reading/immersing yourself in a negative event and take on similar characteristics and bring that negativity into your daily mental life? It's decent day outside....a little overcast....but not bad weather. Christmas season. Friday. Most people you met will probably seem normally cheerful as they head into the weekend. But now we've got 10's of thousands among us that are probably feeling a bit worse after immersing themselves in that bad news. Again, just an event brought on by the Internet, nothing actually going inside their own local world. That's alienation from self, isn't it? Bottom line, discernment and the ability to not care about many things are very important skills now. I think something like this shooting should be acknowledged, but at the same time if it's not a situation that you can help much, I think you are better off taking yourself away from it.
