Television sets...do they harm spirituatity

If it were up to me I'd not have a tv set in our home, but my husband enjoys tv so I have two tv sets in our home.
When I was in college and before I met my husband I didn'[t have tv and I noticed that I was not influenced by tv in that I had a high self esteem, I was more free, and I was more spiritual.
Do you think that the govt, controls us thru tv? Do you think they send subliminal messages or waves to us when we watch and so we are controlled by the govt?
What do you think

I agree w/ all your thoughts about tv. I saw on another thread you started reading Marciniak's book and so did I. Is that where you got the idea?

When kundalini hit I had much less desire for all types of media and am even starting to get sick of the internet. I thought that was impossible!

Do what feels best for you. You could try an experiment and avoid it for a week or a month and see how you feel about it.

Just because your husband is so into it SL doens't mean you have to be. there's way's and means around it. Whilst he's watching it, you go into another room. Go to your bedroom, in the kitchen, go for a bath, whatever but to give you the time away from it. You could also suggest to your husband that you do something differrent rather than sitting in front of the tv, ie going for a walk, go bowling, go visit relatives, play games with the kids. In this day and age, tv has taken over society, just as the internet has, xbox, ps3's and all the rest of it. We're becoming conditioned to pay top whack for the best of everything when all it's doing is pushing family values further to the backburner. It's no wonder these days communication has gone out the window. The pleasure of reading a book has been taken away because you turn round and they're on the small screen. I'm using that as one example. Kids don't know how to play anymore, and people are starting to lose their sense of self, so taken in with 'soap life' and 'gossip' to name but a couple. The answer? turn the tv off, have a game of twister, play cards .. bake cakes! .. anything that involves family. Don't fall into the trap of letting 'Big Brother' conrol your life. Take it back Stand up and be counted. Love light and Laughter J x

I think television, like anything, is bad in excess.

I also think the government controls us in far better and easier ways than just television.

But remember, self education is your best bet- the government can only lie to those who believe it.

So if you're just watching the simpsons or something, I think you're good, lol

I guess it depends on what you're watching.

I like watching animal and geology documentaries, and it doesn't harm me.
