My partner and I have been together for 30 years. Being very familiar with each others ways I noticed that we were not looking into each others eyes very often. We had developed a habit of communicating without eye contact and I was feeling less close than I would like. I was missing those 'togetherness' moments - moments of intimacy that go deeper than words and moments of understanding and acceptance.
I decided to began to be aware of this and sat quietly with my partner to look at him. We laughed and smiled at one another. We connected our hearts and reaffirmed that looking deeply into another persons eyes can be a wonderful meditative experience. I am mindful of looking into his eyes often to
listen with my heart to what he is saying.
It has had a wonderful effect!
