The six o'clock news offers a litany of war, corruption, greed and trouble. The same holds true for the newspapers and radio. I struggle understanding people becoming "addicted" to the current trial on TV. I believe it is important to know what's happening in the world but you also need time to listen to your spirit. Ration your media exposure. Instead of watching TV, spend time in prayer and meditation. Let the silence soothe you. Finish a neglected project. Give yourself quiet time for communion with God.
