The Fire In Your Eyes

The Fire In Your Eyes

If you have fire of soul, then Vedic sages say it is reflected in the shining of your eyes. It’s reflected spontaneously in our body language and body movements. Everything you think, feel, say and do will reflect the same fire.

Do this exercise to connect with the fire in your eyes:

Whenever you look into a mirror, even if it’s just for a second or two, make eye contact with your image and silently repeat the three principles that are the foundation of self-referral. First, say to yourself, “I’m totally independent of the good or bad opinions of others.” Second: “I’m beneath no one.” Third: “I’m fearless in the face of any and all challenges.”

Look into your eyes in the mirror and see those attitudes reflected back to you. Just in your eyes, not in your facial expression. Look for the shine in your eyes to remind yourself of the fire in your soul.

My mom would always say to me when she'd see me (we don't live together) if i was upset about something or depressed, "something isn't right with you that spark isn't in your eyes" and she was always right... Thanx

I heard Deepak speak in high school some 20 years ago at a summer leadership camp called Anytown USA. To this date he is still inspiring and empowering us to go beyond what we think and search deeper into ourselves to channel the "fires" within in order to be compassionate and dynamic individuals. Thank You Much!

@june t. and sandi c. : things will get better, have faith and remember when life throws things at you, don't say "why me?"

say instead "TRY ME!"

may your fire return and burn so bright that people have to shield their eyes!
