Daily Ritual Before TV Viewing
Materials: TV, Program Guide, Large (dark colored) Towel, Scented
(Stand in front of TV with guide in right hand. Turn on TV and step
back. Raise guide level with the middle of TV screen, saying:)
"Oh Great Orb, from which visions are cast
Let their memories not with me last.
Mindless entertainment from thee may arise,
But it falls on deaf ears and is seen by blind eyes."
(Open the guide to the date and veiwing schedule)
"Now I quickly make my choice
Though arguing with inner voice,
**There's other ways to relax, unwind
Calm your spirit,ease your mind**"
(Read the listings)
"Factual shows with knowledge to share
Or sitcoms with laugh tracks (I really can't bear)
Home shopping, soap operas, music videos galore
And turning the page I'm bombbarded with more."
(Drop guide, pick up towel and place over TV screen, place candle on or
in front of covered TV and light.)
"My mind is my own, I worship thee not
For pleasure and fiegning boredom I thee bought.
But I do not relax nor pleasure I get
When watching and listening to most of your s***."
(Close your eyes and take a moment to meditate about the other
activities you could fill you time with.)
"My inner voice wins, it alone I obey
You are not my master at the end of each day.
You have no futher power over me
My will is to strong....
(Turn off TV with an aire of defiance)
And, So Mote It Be!"
(Turn back on TV and walk away
with a strong sense of victory over an
oppressor. Now go paint, write, read, or try a new hobby.)
