Being watched is an uncomfortable feeling. I do not like voyeurs or dictators peeping into my life and privacy. George Orwell painted a scary picture of “Big Brother” watching us, as a means to induce fear, and a slave mind-set in the targeted population.
But I would like somebody to have my back. A friend once put it beautifully,
“If you ask me to jump from this window, I will, without thinking twice. Because I know you will be there with a net or some support for me.”
How many of us are fortunate enough to have such omnipresent friends and well-wishers?
The same concept of being watched evokes totally opposite reactions.
it is the intent
which defines all actions
calls for reactions
I am less likely to go wrong, if I stay focussed on the spirit behind all that I encounter, read between the lines, and stay alert to non-verbal signals. People have learnt to manipulate every expression of theirs to deceive, and yet, there is an intuition that tells you this is fake.
take a keen look at
all the faces around
they tell you stories
which will define your world
till you decide to change
I am the watcher and the watched!
