eyes after meditation

Postby Upasaka Sumana » Wed Feb 24, 2010 8:32 pm

Every time I finish meditation and look myself in the mirror my eyes look so much clearer and very limpid. It's like a visible effect of mind purification, I think. Has anyone observed this?
Do not think lightly of evil, saying, "It will not come to me." A drop at a time is the water pot filled. Likewise, the fool, gathering it little by little, fills himself with evil.
Do not think lightly of good, saying, "It will not come to me." A drop at a time is the water pot filled. Likewise, the wise man, gathering it little by little, fills himself with good.

Same here. The eyes are the window of the soul, or rahter mind in this case ;)
Let it come. Let it be. Let it go.

Yes I've noticed this, and I can feel it as well. I think it's more to do with physical effects, the staring etc (unless your eyes are closed) than anything mystical - for want of a better word.

Then again I could be wrong.
