Soulful/Feline Reflections for the New Year – 4

Look at yourself unflinchingly, straight in the eye. What do you see? Do you see the familiar image of every day? Do you see who you’ve always seen, your self-image, the one who goes by your name? Stay with it longer. See if you can look without blinking, just gaze into and through your eyes, through to the other side. They say the eyes are windows to the soul. If you look into your own eyes for a long enough time, you will start to see something that may not be familiar. You may even see your face start to change. Let that happen. And also let whatever it is that looks through your eyes, that which is the light of conscious awareness within your body’s form – let that awareness become awake and let it be present. And let yourself make contact directly with that. See how it affects you to stay with the presence of your true self, in quiet direct contact. Does your energy expand? Do you want to look away, to return to your daily tasks? See if you can stay with it just a little longer, remaining fully awake and present to what you’re feeling. Let the intensity grow. The presence that is your true self is always there, if you are willing to pay attention to it.
