Our way of combating fear is creating more opportunities for people to connect with each other authentically
Today we had a lovely lady reach out and express her wonderful experiences with our event's in Brisbane, she is now in Barcelona and is excited to host monthly event's there!
To us, the timing of this is very special, considering the recent tragic events, and we believe that this type of instant global community-response social change narrative is one that we are proud to see evolve and grow.
Looking forward to more beautiful moments

What is our relationship with fear?
Is it possible that our fears are false projections of a potential future outcome that is linked to a dis-empowering belief we have about our world?
If so is it then possible to shift and change this belief to a more positive and life affirming one?
Is it possible that our minds have been conditioned to attribute our energy, and life force, into fueling this fear, and sustaining it, as a potential catastrophic possibility, because we have seen this so many times before, in movies, in television shows, in newspapers, on the news, with our extended circles and even our inner circles?
If so, is it possible that we’re not actually aware of the role that fear plays in our lives? How much do we actually dismiss the effect fear has on our bodies, and how much do we actually acknowledge it?
What if we thought we made a decision based on what we thought was best for us at the time, but because of our inability to identify and define what it was that we were actually truly afraid of, had us working in opposition to the freedom that we desire?
What if we made the conscious decision from now on - every time we experience fear, to understand what our relationship to this specific fear that comes up is, to evaluate it, to understand which belief of ours it’s connected to, and then ask ourselves whether the belief is an empowering or dis-empowering one.
Perhaps then we will respond from a place of clarity and conviction, as opposed to allowing the cortisol imposed fight-or-flight function to take the reigns. “The emotional response that we feel when we're afraid serves a purpose, as well — it heightens alertness, keeping the body and brain focused on staying safe until the threat is neutralised.” It is clear fear serves a purpose for our survival, it is a very important aspect of our existence as it protects us in situations that require our immediate attention.
For e.g. if we are being chased by a predator we might find that we’re able to run much faster than we had previously thought was possible. (POST CONTINUED IN COMMENT SECTION)

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.

Harvard study on happiness:
The clearest message that we get from this 75-year study is this: Good relationships keep us happier and healthier.” Yep, the biggest predictor of your happiness and fulfilment overall in life is, basically, love.
Specifically, the study showed that having someone you can rely upon helps your nervous systems relax, helps your brain stay healthy and reduces emotional pain.
The data also clearly found that those who feel lonely are more likely to see their physical health decline earlier and die younger. "It’s not just the number of friends you have, and it’s not whether or not you’re in a committed relationship,” says Waldinger. “It’s the quality of your close relationships that matters.” It doesn’t matter whether you have a huge group friends, or if you’re in the perfect romantic relationship, it’s the quality of the relationships that counts – how much depth and honesty exists within them; the extent to which you can relax and be seen for who you truly are.
This a very good reminder to prioritize authentic connection with others. Because the data is clear that, in the end, you could all have the money you’ve ever wanted, but without loving relationships, you won’t be happy.

You haven't laughed at least once then you're a professional eye gazer. Laughing is just the bodies feedback to you saying "I haven't done this before" then you notice after a minute or two you're in a completely different state of mind, laughing is just one small layer of an endless grounding and connecting experience.
If you can't make it to one of our events try it with a partner and friend! See if you can go beyond the laugher. ✨

I'm not in love with you, I'm in extreme desire of you mistaken as love. I'm infatuated with the illusion of me not having to take responsibility for my own happiness as much as I used to because I know you will complement that.
How many times do these magical words "I love you" in respect to people we’ve just met or, that we’ve fallen for, or are our existing partners implies just the contrary?
What if we are really unknowingly saying is "I've given up on myself, and now hold you accountable to make me happy" because of the naturally occurring bodily responses hyphenated through the endorphins, oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine that’s coursing through me when I see you.
There's so much sensationalism and fairy tale-esque conditioning behind what it means to love that it creates unhealthy foundations and boundaries for people to be in an authentic relationship together.
The filter to which we measure people and assess whether our potential partners will be a good match for us is often being drawn together through our doubts, insecurities and selfish needs rather than our vulnerabilities, solidarity and purpose.
Why? Because this is the world we live in. It’s not a subject to speak about. There’s an air of appropriation over the more hierarchical elements that take precedent over identifying whether we are choosing the right partners or not.
We focus on covering our heads and having food on our table, and once these often challenging tasks are completed we’re often too tired to put in effort to develop a deeper understanding about the people we attract into our lives, we then seek out to settle for the easiest delusions that we think make us happy.
I know that sounds harsh but I’m playing devil’s advocate here, bear with me, it’s all in the name of the game, because we’re playing it whether we know it every day.
I believe we've been conditioned to seek out partners with the barometer of a scarce mindset, the main-frame from which we can scan and assess whether a potential partner is the right match often begins from a place of fear rather than love. We then tell that person “I love you” but what we are.. (Continued in comment section)
Labels. Values. Perceptions. Projections. Obsessions. Conditioning. These all formulate our world.
We can go our whole lives learning and discovering what it is we think we want and then once we think we’ve got it all figured out, within a blink of an eye, a deep infinite void appears for us to recapture our imagination, to create a new sense of worship, perhaps to start worship of ourselves.
Our heart then begins to become a compass to show us our own individual way forward, in ways impossible to define, explain, taste or make sense of. A new sense of being begins to emerge, one that doesn’t belong to us, but is moving its way through us, an intangible frequency of unravelling, shifting the grid of what we perceive to be true.
I'm fascinated by the layers, the cosmic proportions of our destiny and how ill-conceived our projections are for what it is to live a life we think we desire. We live in a constant state of paradox, I feel as though I know too much and simultaneously know too little.
These layers of identity just keep peeling away, and any firm belief in who I am or what I am supposed to be, becomes completely insignificant.
I think the most significant theme over the coming years will be to drop all beliefs for what we believe to be possible, or deemed “right” or “worthy” or “acceptable” even if it means retracting from the outside world for a little while.
We are going through a time of deep change and transformation, recalibration and our sense of wonder and ownership over our “reality” is shifting and changing at epic proportions.
As we journey there’s a new sense of discomfort that begins to arrive, a discomfort that feels like the bridge to something new, but it whispers to slow down, to slow right down. That perhaps something is waiting for us to acknowledge it. Most of the time we mistake discomfort or stagnation as some sort of failure.
The majority have this idea that the merit of being busy relies solely on the external physical actions we take.
I feel that these new times we are in, is about really acknowledging the role and importance of taking internal action in the essence of silence,(CONTINUED IN COMMENT SECTION)
"Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words." Rumi
You’ve probably heard it a thousand times, the answers lie within – but what does that actually mean, within what? According to whom? How do I know it lies within me and not in that car, or in that house, or that partner, If I can see it and can obtain it, purchase it, or spend time with it why should I have to spend my time dwelling on this existential bullshit statement?
Well because it’s not an existential bullshit statement. From the moment we are born we are surrounded by archetypes, we have a dependency on our mothers for nurture, care and love, on our father’s for direction, guidance and obedience (This can also be reversed, or balanced between both, just whomever is the majority shareholder of the feminine or masculine energies). This a normal part of our upbringing, but somewhere along the way, we get caught in this cycle of believing that what we want, what we desire, is outside ourselves, that if only we can get this one thing, then we would be complete.
Then we realise it’s not enough, we need more, and our appetite starts to increase, we begin to make more money, with more money new experiences are available to us, maybe this will fill my void, maybe that will complete me, this endless cycle of belief that the power we hold is outside ourselves.
We choose jobs based on how cool the title of our role sounds. Senior Vice President Of Pushing Shit Down A Creek. Perfect. Can’t wait to show the boys my new email signature, I’m really important now. This will fill my void I know it.
Then a few months down the track we’re like wait what? I couldn’t give a flying shit about buying advertising space on “Insert media network here” to sell the new “Insert brand here” anti-dandruff shampoo, but let’s just supress that for a few years and see what happens because it’ll look good on the resume, because look, everyone else is doing it.
We lose ourselves in lovers, we become dependent on them to feel complete, to fill our gaping voids, and if they’re not happy then we are instantly not happy. If they leave we are distraught, how will we recover? who am I without this person? How can I function in this world without ? (CHECK COMMENT SECTION FOR FULL POST)
"The circle spirals itself back to the place of the beginning. The cycle completes itself in perfection of its purpose. Every beginning containeth the seeds of its completion. Everything that is birthed into this world will also one day, depart this world. When separation is felt from oneness, there will always be a return to oneness."

"A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it's the most painful thing you'll ever have to do and that you've ever done. But what's yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it'll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won't have to put it back in the sky again." #eyegazing #thehumanconnectionmovement #thejourneyhome #oneness #unity #newreality #nature #picoftheday

When we begin to align ourselves with our values, and take actions towards a direction that honours our truest of intent, we begin a conversation with the world around us that says, I am trusting of myself, I am courageous, I am open, I am willing, I am worthy, I am taking action.
The consistency of the frequency of these traits perpetually being sent out in the form of the actions we take, begins to become embodied in the resonance that we hold within our energetic fields.
We then become magnetized and or a magnet, to people, places and experiences that are in direct alignment with our purpose and intent for what we want to create in the world. Instead of having to go out and force something to happen, we watch as opportunities arrive seamlessly, at the right time and at the right place.
This comes through the deep understanding of our identity. Who are we? What makes up our identity, how do we perceive the world around us, from which place does this come from. Is our identity an accumulation of other people’s perceptions of what it means to be happy and successful, or do they come from our own set of understanding of ourselves and our values?
We unknowingly wear many different masks as a coping mechanism to manoeuvre through a world that is constantly trying to tell us who we are and what we should be. Perhaps the best action we can take is to become radically honest with ourselves, strip the masks and away and bathe in our vulnerability.
Our vulnerability is the warrior within that holds the strongest force against any circumstance that challenges us to compromise who we are and what we believe, when we remain vulnerable and open, we begin to cultivate a sensitivity to life that speaks for itself. You can see it in someone instantly, there’s something about them you want to know more about.
It’s also important to be mindful that when we have a strong understandingn of what our values are, this does not mean that everything will become fixed and predictable. What we’re made up of is constantly evolving and changing, we’re always having new experiences that open up a breadth of knowledge. (READ THE COMMENT SECTION FOR THE REST OF THIS POST)
