Monday Mindfulness ~ eyes to see and ears to hear

"Your work is not to drag the world kicking and screaming into a new awareness.  Your job is to simply do your work ... sacredly, secretly, and silently ... and those with 'eyes to see and ears to hear' will respond."
— The Arcturians

I like these words and, needing something to post for today's Monday Mindfulness, decided to use it.  I couldn't quite read the attribution, so I enlarged it to its full magnification to find out who said that:  "The Arcturians."  Never heard of this group, so I googled it and learned:
"Arcturians were first mentioned by the prophet known as Edgar Cayce.  He predicted an advance civilization near the star Arcturus and today we know these benevolent beings as the race of Arcturians.  The star Arcturus is in the Bootes constellation and is home to the Arcturian Aliens."
Say what?  I'm quoting aliens?  How can that be?  "Eyes to see and ears to hear" sounds straight out of the Bible to me, including these and many similar lines.
Deuteronomy 29:4 ~ Moses said:  "But to this day the LORD has not given you a mind to understand, or eyes to see, or ears to hear."
Ezekiel 12:2 ~ Ezekiel said:  "Mortal, you are living in the midst of a rebellious house, who have eyes to see but do not see, who have ears to hear but do not hear."
Mark 8:18 ~ Jesus said to his disciples:  "Do you have eyes, and fail to see?  Do you have ears, and fail to hear?"
Romans 11:8 ~ Paul wrote:  "God gave them a sluggish spirit, eyes that would not see and ears that would not hear, down to this very day."
So what does the saying mean?  I can hear it now:  "This is all new-age stuff."  It doesn't matter.  I'm sure no one can drag anyone else into new awareness.  Using my own eyes to see and my own ears to hear, I'll simply do what I can — "sacredly, secretly, and silently" — to enlighten myself and others.

Hmm, how can it be "silently" if I post my musings on my blog?  How can it be "secretly" when my blog is open to the whole world?  Maybe this post will be meaningless, if you don't have eyes to see and ears to hear.
