Here is a meditation on soul space.
Eyes are the window to the soul. Yet when we peer into the eyes of another, we see first through our own lenses. Do we see what we want to see or do we find some new truth revealed? The thing about looking into someone’s eyes, at least in this culture, is that it is almost considered rude to hold someone’s gaze for ‘too long’ (however that is determined). People get noticeably uncomfortable when two pairs of eyes lock for a prolonged moment. Yet this is where the real juice can be discovered and savored.
I have sat in long meditations where part of the experience was to hold the gaze of a partner. Interesting things happen. It’s always unlooked for, since we are there to do the meditation without expecting an outcome. I find a sense of merging with my partner. I even have seen the likeness of someone who has transitioned in the eyes of my partner. The veil between this realm and the next becomes blurred. Any sense of separation between myself and another person dissolves, leaving a coalescing, fusion of souls. In this sense, the eyes truly do become windows. This journey is an endless uncovering, layer upon layer, one dimension then the next into that vast soul space.
