eyes after meditation

Postby Stephen K » 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?

My philosophy is simple: saying 'yes' to the positive and 'no' to the negative.

With much metta,

Same here. The eyes are the window of the soul, or rahter mind in this case ;)

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.
