Why Does the Media Broadcast Pain, but Censor Pleasure?

Excerpt from Abraham's latest book "The Vortex" p. 135-6

Jerry: I also notice that in our culture it seems perfectly appropriate for television and movies to depict the maiming of people, and destruction and gore- anything horrible as far as destroying the human body- while it seems inappropriate to show human sexuality and pleasure. I've never understood why our culture has come to the place where it can stand hate and anger and pain, but doesn't want to see pleasure.

Abraham: It is not a matter of their wanting to see hate, anger, and pain, and not wanting to see pleasure. In fact, the opposite of that is true: people do want to feel good, and they want to see things that are successful and beautiful and pleasurable.

Many people are attracting to thmselves unwanted things by virtue of their atettention to those unwanted things. A misunderstanding of the Laws of the Universe is at the heart of this conversation as the people of your society wage wars against the things they do not want: war against terror, war against AIDs, war against teenage pregnancy, war against violence, war against cancer - adn every one of those things is getting bigger because attention to unwanted creates more unwanted.

Your moviemakers, whether they understand the Law of Attraction or not, understand that people do gravitate more toward viewing unwanted things than wanted. And we sumbit that the reason that is true is because there are strong active Vibrations in most people about what they do not want. If you were to engage the average person in coversation about what is going on with his life, you would find him much more articulate in expressing the things that are not working well - things that are unjust and things that need to be changed than he would be able to express the aeauty of his life and world.

Also, once you have decided that the world is leaning toward anger and hate, you are no longer a Vibrational Match to the beauty of the wolrd- and the world, as you attract, then leans in the direction of your belief. Anyone who begins to make list of the positive aspects of the world around them will train their Vibartion and therefore their own point of attraction to more of that.

Meanwhile, the people who make movies will continue to make the movies that people are attracting from them. We would like to help you remember that if you are waiting around for your society to get straightened out before you have a happy life experience, you will have a very long wait. If you are waiting for anybody else in your epxiernce to get straightened out before you ahve a happy experience you will have a very long wait.

You are not here to discover that which is perfect. You are here to create or to attract that which is perfect. As the contrast of your life, and even of what you are calling unpleasant movies, helps you know what you do not want, you also understand more clearly what you do want. Focus upon what you do want, become a Vibrational Match to what you do want, train your point of attraction to what you do want, and watch your personal world become that.
