The All Seeing Eye


The Eye of Providence (or the all-seeing eye of God) is a symbol that depicts an eye, often enclosed in a triangle and surrounded by rays of light or Glory, meant to represent divine providence, whereby the eye of God watches over humanity.A well known example of the Eye of Providence appears on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, which is depicted on the United States one-dollar bill.



The all seeing eye is ever watchful. This is no longer conspiracy or fodder for conservative news. Take Instagrams new terms of service for example or watch the documentary The Social Dilemma.


Our habits are being watched. Our cameras are being used for everything from customized ads that follow you around, to enforcing law or mandates, and beyond.


We have given big brother access to every corner of our lives and thus far it can tend to just feels like a giant raping, or like we have no choice but to oblige or consume more to have *privacy, *many people who don't agree with Instagram's new terms and conditions are using a device not linked to anything else on airplane as to not welcome the watchful eye, or we have a nonchalant attitude about the intrusion...probably stating, "I have nothing to hide."

We all have to decide where the line is for ourselves.


Here are two tips for how to balance the scales and make our participation feel more like a win win.


  1. BEGIN TO NOTICE

We wake ourselves in the dream by becoming aware. Begin to notice how you feel when you reach for your phone.


The best way to discover this is to take at least a 7 day break. Yes! take a break to observe your patterns. How do you feel when you reach for your phone? Are you looking for connection or a feeling of belonging? Start to feel what it feels like to reach for your phone and not give yourself the dopamine hit of opening an app. Return yourself to yourself and begin to notice... This will be extremely helpful for when you return to using social media. Each break I take brings me into a more healthy use and relationship with social media. After this last break I no longer reach for my phone in the car or when I'm bored. I started to grow new neural pathways around my use of the phone and it feels good to be able to decide and not just reach for my phone dozens of time in a day out of sheer habit.


2. BALANCING THE SCALES

If the all seeing eye is using your movement, audio messages, and internet searches to advertise to you. Why not lay the foundation for any life you want to create and let big brother go to work to prove to you that life exists.
