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.
