Am I losing the innocence?

Are you able to control instant pulse generated?

pulse

Heard something interesting over TV, while you were reading. Can you continue reading without looking at TV?

These are two instances. If one can have a pause in between these two, he/she can decide her next action, whether to look at TV or continue reading or something else.

Our usual reaction will be to look at TV. May be after some time only, we will be realizing that we were distracted from reading, by our instant pulse.

May be, that is our innocent reaction to watch TV.

May be, that is our lively response.

Now, isn’t it a bit rude upon ourselves, if we are controlling those instant pulse?

So I doubt, if I am losing that innocence.. I doubt if I am not lively..; )

In fact, that controlling is not at all my cautious decision, which happens naturally with 80 % of my actions. TV the simplest of them

Or is it like I am getting saturated?

Or am I going to be a saint..  ; )

        You have to! When you think and keep yourself happy and you can easily make the surroundings happy! So it’s better to start from us! If you have more self control, nothing can distract you to a certain point! Most saints live in the forest to avoid distractions!

    TV frequency and brain frequency are in complete contrast and most often meddles with our mind. So, I guess we have to shut off our mind to the outside stimuli or shut off the TV for good. 🙂

        Then we wouldn’t be doing justice to both. Mind will be wavering from a lower to higher frequency at random and we would not register anything in the long term memory.

    TV is too distracting. It also stimulates so reduces relaxation.
    I prefer quiet when I need to concentrate, doubt if there will ever be any beatification in my house though….

            … in which case, sainthood beckons! We are all saturated with the global TV culture … if culture is the right word. We need to keep our simple selves alive. End of sermon. What’s on TV?

    It simply means your conscious mind is too heavy and dominant over the sub conscious one and I don’t see any harm with it. Probably you would be getting very less or no dreams at all.

    Interesting post . This reminds me of something my teacher told me long back.”If you are doing something and you hear something on television.If you leave everythin you are doing and rush to watch the tv,.your interest lies there.In case you forget the existence of your tv or mobile or any other gadgets..and continue with your work..then that is something more important to you than tv. 😀 confusuing? I still haven’t figured it out yet..as to what is more imp to me..reading or television? 😀

      your teacher had a word in favor of me..:)
      But my doubt was, since we all being human, we have a natural tendency to look at TV, right.. Tv or any thing else which could catch our attention. but what will it be defined if one’s conscious mind is ruling the subconscious mind of senses..? Is that okay .. Will that be a social behavior?

        yeah I understand what you are trying to say.But in my case I don’t always get distracted by the tv if i’m doing something which really interests me..for example if I’m writing a poem or an article .As to your question..i think its natural for people to get distracted.But I don’t think our conscious can rule our unconscious.When you are distracted to the television,its your subconscious mind causing the distraction.Your conscious is telling you to continue what you are doing.That’s why there is an initial reluctance and confusion as to whether one should watch tv or continue wd the job at hand.And soon when your conscious also agrees with your subconscious you get up and rush to watch the tv.( This is purely my interpretation.Don’t blame Freud for this.or even Lacan.though I have read them both. 😀 )
