Have you ever had someone look at you with absolutely no judgment?

That moment, when someone actually sees you for you, all of you, and knows that nothing is, was, or ever will be wrong with you, changes everything.

Experiencing this can be one of the most caring, nurturing and even seductive experiences in the world.

There are even psychological studies that suggest it only takes four minutes of direct eye contact for strangers to fall in love.

Recently Amnesty International took this one step further. They tested the 4 min idea in a more fragile situation; the refugee crisis in Europe and the increasing xenophobia.

They asked a number of Europeans and refugees to stare into each other’s eyes for 4 minutes.

This is what happened:

See, we’ve been trained to start every new encounter by a series of judgment to determine where this person fits into our pre-defined version of reality. We’ve basically been programmed to separate.

What if that training is what is in the way for a different future of the world?

What if oneness is actually much easier than you’ve ever imagined?

What if just a few minutes of eye contact could create that space of no judgment when you can see who this person actually…be? 

Would you be willing to try this out? Today?

Ask someone, maybe even someone you’re not having an easy time with, to share a gaze with you for four minutes.

No other instructions or distractions. Put a timer on, stay present and look into each other’s eyes.

Then see what changes for the both of you.

Are you dissatisfied with the status quo? With the current state of the world? Do you ever feel frustrated with what you think you can or can’t change?

If you’ve been looking to change things in your life or in the world and nothing else has worked, what if consciousness is the missing element?

So many people think that if their eyes are open they’re conscious. What if it’s so much more?

Consciousness is about getting to what actually is. It opens up the space for ease, joy and possibilities to be in any situation.

You see, consciousness is the only thing that is going to change what is going on that ails our planet.

Consciousness, not technology is the key to changing global warming.
Consciousness, not fear is what will change the separation between countries, nations and people. 
Consciousness, not intelligence is what will create a sustainable planet.

Consciousness is actually the future of possibilities for us.

To a dissatisfied dreamer, consciousness is really appealing because you’re the people that are saying “I know there has to be something better than this!”

Is it time for the world, and the limited reality around you, to no longer limit how you can BE in this world? To no longer limit what WE can create as our world and as our lives?

Is now the time my beautiful friends?

You will always know ;),

PS – I recently facilitated an evening class in Vancouver where we explored the potency and the “why” of consciousness. You can get the online video replay here.
