Choose from the buffet of Positive ThoughtsLet me be the first to say- I’m just not hungry for “The Hunger Games.”

What’s more shocking? That Hollywood producers would spend millions on a movie about a postapocalyptic world where children fight to the death in “The Hunger Games” OR that our culture would be so jaded as to seek the entertainment value in such a show? With GREAT ANTICIPATION… I might add.

We know that some things are better left unsaid, but aren’t some things better left UNSEEN? Do I really need to see a play-by-play, minute-by-minute What If account of this New World born from the mind of Suzanne Collins?

At first, I thought- “How can regular You & Me people settle for this, much less camp out overnight to buy tickets.” And then it hit me like a lead balloon… a hot air balloon to be exact.

We are programmed from our earliest years to give all Glory and Honor to violence and catastrophic imaginings. (movies, video games, 24-hour news channels that repeat the same stories an average of 100 times each half-hour). Our subconscious minds are like sponges, soaking it all in over the years.

So, to blame my dear friend (who is beautiful and lovely in every way) for saying, “It’s just for the entertainment value…” Well, that would be like blaming the calculator for telling me that 2+3=5 or the computer software for performing a certain way. It’s all about the programming! So, here are two words, just in time… WAKE UP!

What are we, CRAZY? Or just LAZY? Too lazy to monitor our thoughts or think for ourselves.

The pen is mightier than the sword! And even mightier than the pen is your Mind! So, how will you choose to use Your Mind today? Your “I AM” energy? As for me, I’ll try to Choose a Happier Thought If It’s the LAUGH Thing I Do. Why? Because I just happen to be an Imagyneer in training.

Now how in the world would I ever be able to Choose a Happier Thought while sitting next to my nine and eleven year old daughters as we share the special Big Screen moment of two children fighting to the death for sport in the Olympic-Like arena during the Hunger Games?

The buttered popcorn and Butterfingers would help, but overall it would leave a bad taste in my mouth that no miracle toothpaste could ever undo. You’d just have to bring out the Men In Black memory-erasing laser gadget to beep me on the way out.

I won’t go so far as to call for a boycott of this movie, because that would be Me trying to program You and your mind. However, I will make one final plea-

Just Imagyne a better world. Kinda hard to do while sitting in Some Movie Theaters?
