Santa Claus is Coming to Town!
For Christmas, we received a game called “Would you rather……..?
One of the scenarios was: Would you rather………..
find out that your employer has been secretly videotaping your every minute in your office -OR- find that your employer has been recording all of your private phone calls.
The player that picked the card has to choose the answer that she thinks the majority of the other players will choose. If she is correct then she gets another turn. It is a fun game but the basic premise is creating embarrassing situations.
Neither of the scenarios would be acceptable to most people. We live our lives with the idea that that majority of what we do or say is private. We count on certain informational boundaries between work and our personal lives. With the arrival of Facebook and other social media, it is becoming much more difficult to maintain control of our privacy. When someone chooses to run for public office, they have to be ready to have their entire lives exposed to the public attention with limited context and accuracy.
There is no place at all that is not looking at you. Rainer Maria Rilke
This quote is not about other people looking at you or knowing what you are doing. It is not about other people judging you or using information about you for their own good. It is not about how fearfully we protect our personal secrets.
What you are looking for is who is looking. St. Francis of Assisi
Do you believe that there is an all knowing, Divine Being, that observes all your actions and knows all your thoughts? Does this Universal Force also know your past, present, and future?
How will you intentionally co-create your life with this Source of energy and knowledge?
What will it take to live in harmony with God?
Are you looking for Who is looking?
