This book offers valuable insights for those who want to be change agents, making our living environment less exploitative and hostile. It further promotes the thinking of those who prefer to govern their lives based on their own search for truth instead of the information presented by the media. In this book, the author presents a compelling perspective on the Three Major Toxins that currently are contaminating our environment and why we should not be bystanders, doing nothing about them. The negative consequences will become a greater burden for our next generation to bear--more than we can imagine. The author helps us realize how much we as consumers have been relying on the media for our daily entertainment and have become their walking advertisements as we buy into their make-believe images. The way we process our energy throughout the day will determine how much aggression we have in store for that day. There are Five Channels of influence that can trigger unhealthy aggressive and sexual actions and ways to prevent them from occurring. This also includes the impact they have on our children, both in society and in family settings. See Video, Please go to www.ChangeYourLifeBooks.org

Total Arousal

The media's primary goal is to create a certain chemical arousal within the bodies of their audiences to make them feel good for the purpose of grabbing their attention and gaining their interest and curiosity in the message they are trying to convey. One technique is to use certain emotional stimulants subconsciously to make their audiences feel good, either from the ego or from the soul perspective, for the purpose of encouraging the audience to continue coming back for their products and services and eventually becoming addicted to them. This further creates more desire and frenzy from the audience which in turn creates more demand for their products and services which is what the media have been accomplishing for many years. We might turn away from those stimulants and from certain media when we find their productions to be too disturbing to our well-being. The saddest thing about this is that it is not so easy to just tune them out since they are everywhere in our surroundings. At the same time, the creators behind those productions have also tried very hard to come up with different ways and methods in a fashion that attracts the audience the most and to continue to tap into their subconscious minds. The themes that the media consider to be the most arousing and provoking to the audience to the point of emotional excitement or disturbance would be considered the pitch, or the "hot buttons" for them to push each and every time. Theme such as sexual jokes, nudity, lust, passion, sensuality, violence, aggression, perversion, power, fame, lavish and stylish materialistic goods, poverty, silliness and stupidity, grossly funny, and shocking and horrifying things are among the prevalent ones that the media use to attract the audience's attention. We must understand that it is not the themes themselves that are an unhealthy influence to us. It is more the way they are depicted in the form of a joke, a play, a game, an amusement to arouse our lower emotions that is considered unhealthy. (6:3-1)

Combating the Negatives

The correlation between what is in the media and the rate of our personal growth as a whole is tremendous. They have a close connection to each other. As the media increase their negative influences in our society, the rate of our personal growth collectively retrogresses in a similar proportion and intensity. In fact, our personal growth is represented by our maturity level which does not include the knowledge, intelligence, skills or talents we possess; however, it does consist of our personalities, moral values, and wisdom. The more we store negative images, ideas, thoughts, and impressions in our psyche, the more they are going to interfere with the direction of our personal growth and in turn retrogress our maturity. One of the major factors that contributes to our need to get out of this technical and media-frenzy way of living lies in the level of our maturity which correlates to the level of our wisdom. The more mature we are the more we feel a need to live in a lifestyle that is more positive, pure, and meaningful. The less mature we are, the less wisdom we realize and the more potential we have to subscribe to lifestyles that are more extreme, provocative, and destructive. As a result, less mature individuals are now the majority in our population worldwide and the more mature individuals are considered to be the minority in our population.
