(But Not in a Creepy Way)
Do the walls have ears?
Do we know who’s hacking who?
Have we lost our privacy? Our security?
Does the surreal never sleep?
And I’m wondering, what if we wake up and smell the coffee?
(Without checking the pot first for cameras
Or the toaster for wires)
What if we’re being watched, without the gizmos?
Every minute, every word, every thought and action?
Of course we are!
By a Source that will forever make our cutting- edge technology look like cut-outs.
What if as Einstein discovered, “Before God we are all equally wise – and equally foolish.”
What if we’ve just forgotten who we really are?
That’s it! I finally got it!
What if instead of donning my rain stained trench coat and screaming like the character in the “Network,” “I’m Mad as Hell and I’m Not Going to Take it Anymore!”
My shout out is, “I’m scared as hell so I’m going to start listening!”
I want to be awake! Doing what may seem so miniscule an action and the hardest thing to do.
What if I start paying attention to the words I say and the things I do? Listening.
What if I spy on myself?
Like the old children’s game: “I Spy With my Little Eye.”
The smile, the sneer, the kindness given – the little lie I didn’t even know I was lying. And maybe, just maybe The Eye that’s always watching. The “I” that is the same “I” in you as it is in me.
What if this is how we change the world?
What if the universe produces everything we ask for? If this is true, we better know exactly what we’re asking for.
So yes, I say, we’re being watched. By the cosmos and the angels or something you may call God. Or Allah. By the proof of science and physics and mathematics and biology. By the wisdom of the poets and philosophers and mystics from thousands of years before us who got there are The Laws of the universe.
What if we’re only scratching the surface of our powers?
Dial it back to Buddha or the Tao or Mohammad, Moses, Jesus or The Hindu gods.
Or if they’re too old school for you, bring it up a bit to Sting and his song:
Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you.
Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I’ll be watching you.
But not in a creepy way.
Because what if “you won’t believe what happens next” is more than just a tag to bring you back after the commercial?
What if what comes next for you and us all is a little good news?
I Spy a miracle!
