The Vision Box

It was once a small box
But now often fills a wall
As colossal in dimension
As the expansion of it all
Hundreds of channels
Cable, streamed, satellite
Or pop on a DVD
But is it all alright?…

The television was pure magic
When in homes it first appeared
Quickly engaging many nations
It’s presence became revered
No matter what was shown
It was constantly turned on
Unknowing we became besotted
Around it daily we would throng

A monumental shift had begun
Entrancing all to its view
Engrossing more as years passed
With added hours and channels too
Eventually people spoke out
Of damage to minds so young
Not yet appreciating the fact
Age hadn’t protected since it begun

As with cinema, over the decades
The levels of decency fell
Taking more and more to shock
Sex and violence enhanced to sell
As if it wasn’t addictive enough
Soaps were added in plentiful supply
Not really ‘true to life’ at all
High-drama keeps the ratings high

A way to become rich and famous
Catches the impressionable teen
Mainstream media in all its forms
Hearts set, so many, so keen
Living the ‘Celebrity Lifestyle’
Is their one and only goal
Eventually most will learn
It doesn’t fulfil the Soul

But even before those teens
Grab the children and toddlers too
Hypnotize their developing minds
To control their future view
Before six, children cannot differentiate
Truth from fiction, they digest everything
Their sub-conscious is being developed
And shapes what their future will bring

All minds are impressionable
No matter young or old
Be aware that what you view
Will sink in and then mould
Your thoughts, beliefs, desires
Take shape with constant repeat
It’s more than just entertainment
When your glued to your seat

It’s now more important than ever
To have discernment overall
Taking control of the remote
We have the power to cause the fall
Of the Elite who’s manipulation
Coerced the silver screen
Greater in number are now awake
Heralding Love and Light to be seen

There is another vision box
That so many tend to forget
But it’s true power is unlimited
Giving rise to what you get
No need for batteries or electric
Unlimited freeview with no install
Available all day and night
Always present to us all

Imagination is your vision
Created in your mind
With intent and focus
Many joys you will find
With Love and Light intent
Plug into the Universe
Switch on your vision box
Your growth will be diverse

Trina Graves – 20th February 2019


About This Poem

I wrote the first six verses for this poem as part of ‘Pull The Plug‘ on 5th December 2018. In that poem I was going through various things to stop doing, or at least limit and consider the impact these have on our lives. I intended television to be one of the topics, but in writing it this section was much longer than the rest, and in many ways was a part of them anyway: news, adverts, smart technology, gossip, gaming, music. So the obvious thing was to make another poem just about television. I did intend to finish off the poem and add it soon after the other one but I never got around to it until the other day.

It is interesting that had I finished it back then I probably would not have got the ending verses about our imagination. The first part of the poem was laying on my desk up until Christmas time and at some point the title came to me ‘The Vision Box,’ but I never felt like finishing it. Clearing the decks for Christmas I popped it away and mostly forgot about it, but the idea of our imaginations being a ‘vision box’ too, came at some point. 

In January I began a journey of quick-firing synchronicites (more about these to follow in and with future poems) that lead me to focus on my Affirming The Classics series of poems, but the other day I fancied a change so I decided to finish this one off, unaware that this would spark another synchronicity later that very day that lead to me writing a poem called Inner-Discernment. (to be added soon)

Oh my goodness!!! These synchronicities are outstanding! I just completed this post and (as always) I went on to do something else so that I could come back and re-read with fresh eyes before posting. I noticed there was a new channelling from Blossom Goodchild and although it was a video of her channelling White Cloud (I don’t watch Blossom’s videos as I prefer to read her messages instead) I thought I would at least start watching it because the title caught my attention: Absolute Proof The Change Has Begun.

It started with Blossom talking, and then as White Cloud took over I was so drawn to her eyes as they seemed to change – I even paused the video and went back to check! – when White Cloud began to talk it was all about looking through Blossom’s eyes!!! so that really caught my attention and I knew I needed to keep on watching! And then part of the message was about watching TV and making the choice of what we watch!!! So linked in to this poem!

During the channelling Blossom revealed something she has been reluctant to share and the whole video message had totally meaning and guidance for me at this time.

As my wonderful online friend and confidant Amira knows, I wasn’t sure which poem to add today, this one or another (Footprints Of Light) that is prepared, in which I tell of something that happened recently, but I am finding difficult to share. I thought maybe I was taking the easier option by going for this TV one today, but now I know it is perfect… Divine Timing. And the synchronicity of this latest link gives me all the more confidence in revealing all… soon!

  1. Wow! The synchronicities continue on to light the path!!! This is a perfect poem for our times dear Trina! It flows beautifully guiding us to the light, to wake up from the hypnosis that is holding people’s minds occupied with irrelevant trivia while imposing ideology, styles and trends for profit, while we forget the amazing creative power of our minds! Thank you for this amazingly inspirational poem so needed in our times! I love the picture for this poem and the story behind it!!! Sending love and light your way, in gratitude, Amira ❤

    • Thank you Amira, you have such a wonderful way with your words of understanding and summarizing my poems that it always amazes me! Bless you. ❤
      I hunted for ages trying to find a picture of my own with someone watching TV to use for a quote but couldn't find one (which I guess is a good thing!) so looked on Pixabay and once I saw that one I knew it was a perfect fit!
      Love, Light & Blessings in Oneness ❤
