Experience tells me where to focus my attention. Films, television and other media pump out information about areas of life that are supposed to be desirable, and they do this very well.
Of what use are all the creature comforts in the world, when there is hardly any colour or warmth? Some might think it makes sense to bask in heat and vivid colour, while aiming to keep the real deal at arm’s length. That’s what floats their boats.
Brightening up grey locations and making them warm feels like a more sensible approach. Everyone has points of reference in his or heart and mind, to provide guidance as it is required.
If I accept that my consciousness is who I am, what should I aim to nurture as much as possible?
It’s in each person’s hands to decide.
