The concept of the heavenly guardian, watching over the affairs of mortal man is both comforting and frightening. For though it sounds good to be watched over, it is also alarming to think we are observed in our dark, bitter, selfish moments, regularly staining our better times. Our mortality and cruel natures are all the more apparent in such a light.
Perhaps this is why most people only think of such beings during holidays. As to live as though our evils were observed is more than most men can bear.
