In the modern world we are both more and less connected than we've ever been. We can connect to virtually anyone, anywhere, anytime and yet there is a severe disconnect between people on a spiritual level. When is the last time you really looked into someone's eyes for more than 2 or 3 seconds? 5? Even when we do glance at people in the street it is often less than a second.
Today, I dare you to connect with someone in a deeper level - without words.
The challenge? Look at one another in the eyes for five seconds. It may feel like the longest five seconds you've experienced for a long time. Ask yourselves how you felt. What emotions came up? Laughter? Discomfort? Connection? Fear? Love? Whatever it may be just try it out and be aware of how it felt. Look at how you felt before and after. It is a simple practice that has become almost foreign to many. Go ahead, try something new today. It only takes five seconds!
