In every human being there exists a self identity crisis ranging broadly in it’s severity from time to time and place to place. It is a gradual thing that develops as we progress from childhood into our young adult years. For many of us, as we approach mid life, the crisis becomes more acute.
It is a practice worth perfecting, for if you persist and perfect the act of maintaining eye contact you will see truths in other human beings that may have lain hidden previously and you will also reveal the truth in your own heart.

If you are not the truth will lie hidden from you, and your relationships will lack true honesty and connectedness.
