It’s All in the Eyes

So many days on this earth we spend going about our business, heads buried in our Blackberrys and cell phones, minds racing faster than a speeding bullet and our bodies dashing about from here to there. Our brains are inundated with the oh-so-uplifting media, we’ve got appointments to keep, commitments to make, meetings to attend and lo and behold, we have the lovely task of deciding what we’re going to have for dinner….and creating it, on top of that!

With all of this going on, and much more, it’s easy to see how one might float around on auto pilot. But do we really want to go about the remainder of lives this way? Is this a fulfilling way of being? Has going about life in this habitual manner perpetuated the life that we want?  Is this adding to the quality of our relationships or is it taking away? We know in our hearts how important it is to be Present, but do we really know how to do that? Well, if you’ve read Eckhart Tolle’s, “The Power of Now,”  you probably have a good idea of what all is involved in this getting Present stuff. If you haven’t read that, I highly recommend it.

There are many ways one can go about getting connected to the Present moment. One of the most powerful methods is to simply focus on your breathing. Sounds easy enough, yes?  You can do that while sitting, standing, walking, running, lying down etc…  We have been given this gift, not just for the physiological necessity of having glorious oxygen nourish our cells, but for the psychological gift of….becoming PRESENT!

Getting Present, first, is key. No matter how you get there, Just Do It. Connect to the beauty of this moment. Then…and this part will absolutely change your life…connect with people in the eyes. Of course, those near and dear to you will absolutely appreciate and savor this luxurious gift. However, connecting with people whom you don’t know, in the eyes, is where Heaven on earth lives. When we are present to the Present, this connecting to others is effortless and joyous. The outcome of you doing this will blow your mind, your ego and all of your old shut down patterns out of the water.

Looking in other’s eyes with Love, will transform not only your life, but the lives of those around you. People know when you are really there with them and when you are, we all know in our hearts what a truly wonderful thing that is. We feel loved, we feel heard, we feel accepted and we feel blessed.

Think of it as double gifting. You are gifting yourself with this willingness to connect, and you are gifting the world by shining radiant Love through your eyes. Talk about an Abundant way to live.  How many people are you willing to tag with your Love today?

Tag, you’re it!
