Developing Stillness Step by Step

Today’s gesture is soft eyes, Bodhisattva eyes, eyes that look on all with compassion, kindness, and love. This is the seventh of the Seven Gestures in Kum Nye. We develop soft eyes by loosening the focus. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, look at the world without wearing them. You may find the edges of everything dissolve, and there is less judgment and labeling.

The point of this gesture is that with a loose outward gaze, we can turn attention inward and tune into what is happening inside the body. We turn all of the senses inward and discover the continuous flow of information provided by what is happening internally.
