Perhaps This Is The Perfect Example Of An Authentic Conversation

This video came out just over one year ago and was promoted as a method of connecting with anyone. Basically the concept is that if you stare into someone’s eyes silently for 4 minutes you will create this beautiful connection with them. For older, more established couples, it will deepen or renew the intimacy of their bond.

As I watch this again in retrospect I find that staring silently into someone else’s eyes may be the perfect example of an authentic conversation. A concept that I have recently discussed on this blog.

I believe that living authentically is when your inner and outer selves are functioning in complete alignment. An authentic conversation on the other hand is when this alignment expands to two or more people. And in no way do I believe that words are a prerequisite for this kind of conversation.

Please watch the video. It is quite well done.
