The Eye of God

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

I came across this picture of the Helix nebula, which the Hubble telescope took.  It just makes me feel that God is watching us through this of a dying star. 

We are all watched and judged by those around us; our colleagues, our customers, our staff and our bosses.  Each of them sees only part of what and who we are,  and like the astronomers, they draw inferences and conclusions.  Unlike the scientists, they don’t test these hypotheses, they (usually) just say this is what I observed, so that must be the case…

There is so much scope for misunderstanding and misinterpretation.  Today an on-line friend was apparently a victim of this, but it happens to us all.  We need to constantly be aware of what we are sending out, and what we pick-up from others reactions and ensuring that where possible, we clarify and question, to offer and ask for feedback.

 

“All perceiving is also thinking, all reasoning is also intuition, all observation is also invention.”  Rudolf Arnheim

“They who are in the highest places, and have the most power, have the least liberty, because they are the most observed”  John Tillotson
