I have read that thoughts are things.
They work as hard as actions do.
Every time we see an image on a TV screen,
we all make thoughts.
Fearful thoughts coalesce into fearful clouds,
angry thoughts meet up in angry clouds.
Likewise, thoughts of caring and compassion.
So be careful what you televise.
You may be adding to thought pollution.
Be careful what you put on TV screens,
unless the viewers have been screened,
and only compassionate people are allowed
to view the news.
I know nuns who place a prayer
on every ISIS warrior’s head.
Daily I climb
the mountains in my mind.
There was a time when
I didn’t see them,
and another when I thought
that I could wish them down.
