What if You Enjoy Violent Movies?

Abraham-Hicks,  St. Petersburg, FL 03-13-94

Guest: Judging what we're creating and what we're doing about thinking and feeling and that, if it feels right and feels good inside, then you're creating in a way that's for your, you know, your greater benefit. Like an example of, like...last night I went home, I was watching Rambo on TV which isn't a very enlightened movie, but I enjoyed it; I really enjoyed the action and what was happening. And so, it makes me wonder, are there things that...and there's other things that I do in my life that I think, "This isn't a very enlightened thing to do," but, I feel good doing it.

Abraham: Rather than evaluating whether it's enlightened or not, evaluate how it feels. In other words, as you're watching Rambo, you could be concentrating upon the agility of his body, you could be concentrating upon his ability to get done what he has intended to get done. You could be concentrating upon his passion for his work. In other words, within everything, there are positive and negative aspects, and if you are feeling good, as connected to the Nonphysical Energy as you are, then that means that you are looking at the aspects of it -- in other words, did you feel more powerful as you watched it?

Guest: You know, those things that you said rang true. It was like getting something accomplished, of doing something that was difficult to do, and you know, making it happen is what...

Abraham: And there is another part of you that knows that all of that stuff that is offered, any blood that you see, is not real. In other words, you are accepting it as a game. That's why we say, if you're watching a horror movie and it horrifies you, then you are vibrationally allowing something you do not want. If you're watching a comedy, and it horrifies you, or if you're watching a comedy and it amuses you -- in other can't judge anything at face value. The emotion that it evokes from you is your indicator of where you are vibrating relative to it, you see. Were there any parts of the movie that bothered you?

GUEST: I don't think so, no. There were parts that made me feel apprehensive, although I've seen it two or three times. But it was, you know, the parts that made me feel like a little bit scared...

Abraham: And so, as you felt that negative contrast, you quickly, particularly because you'd seen it before, were able to focus upon the positive outcome or at least...

Guest: It was going to work out. He was going to get a release from the prison and all that.

Abraham: All is well there. In other words, it is never appropriate to throw a blanket over anything, and call it all the same. Sometimes someone will have read a book and they will say to us, "Well, Abraham, what do you think about the book?" And we say, "Which part of it are you talking about?"

In other words, it's not what we think about the book that is important to you, it's how you felt about the book that is important to you. You see what we are getting at? It's "What did that book trigger in me in terms of wanting and in terms of my awareness of where I am relative to what I'm wanting?" That's the only thing that's important about anything.

So, could we put films of a violent nature all in one category? We couldn't, could we? In other words, here is a film, that by many standards, is considered to be very violent and yet, you, a connected being, sat and actually enjoyed it. Where there could be a movie of another nature where there is some sinister plot or...

The movies that Esther has a very difficult time watching, now, are the ones that are more what are based on actual reality, where there's someone constantly putting down someone, where she's watching the diminishment of the spirit taking place. Where people are just being rude to each other, and she sees that constant whittling of self-respect. And those movies are much more difficult for Esther to watch than movies of the pretense of violence. Well, it is an undertone of self disempowerment. In other words, most things are sort of projected toward that, because people do not feel very powerful.

But the thing that we want to remind you is that there can be a tendency to want to condemn the media or condemn the agencies that produce the films, condemn the networks for what they are showing you, when what they are doing is responding to the mass consciousness of your population. In other words, they are giving you what you are vibrationally asking for, and the way they evaluate what you're asking for is by what you watch. It is all dollar motivated but, it is actually very well organized and in harmony with the true intent of people. In other words, you're all getting exactly what you deserve, and we do not mean that in a judgmental sense. We mean vibrationally; [what] you are attracting.

So what we talk about in these gatherings is, "Do I want to be part of mass consciousness? Do I want to be one who receives the results of what mass consciousness is vibrating -- or do I choose to be a more individual vibrator? Do I choose to think for myself, or am I going to be programmed to my thinking by what is being offered?"

Well, that goes back to the very first thing we said yesterday, or one of the first things, and that is, most people are responding to conditions. So they watch something which causes them to vibrationally respond which causes them to emit another vibration which attracts another television program just like it. But then there are few of you who are not pleased by that, and as you're not pleased by it, or a lot of you that are not pleased by it, what do you do? You still talk about what you're not pleased by, so what does that do? That creates more of it, too. But then, there are even a fewer of you who are not pleased by it who have the foresight to understand what would please you, who actually spend time finding that feeling place -- and you attract some of those uplifting, delightful depictions of physical experience that actually do empower and uplift the masses who see it, you see?

What is your work? Is your work to fix a broken world? The world isn't broken, friends. It is an extraordinary, rather well-balanced arena of creating which contains enough contrast to stimulate your awareness of what is wanted. So, as you realize that it isn't broken and you realize that your work is to find your connection to the pure Energy that created it to begin with, your work is to allow the Energy to flow through you as you hold objects of attention -- then you are the extension of that creator.

  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
