The look in his eyes cues me he's fully out here. He's looking at me directly, straight into my eyes, fully present, being with me. And what I also see in his eyes is while he's not being introspective, he's totally lit up inside. Then again, while "lit up inside" isn't the most useful way to say it, saying it this way is also good enough for jazz. He's being both. He's fully out here looking into my eyes fully present being here with me ... and ... he's totally lit up.
There's more. There's something else. There's something he does with his eyes which, in a split second, alters my entire way of being, something which gives me an entirely new possibility of being for my own being, something which gives me a whole new possibility of being for all human beings. What he does is he looks into my eyes fully out here fully present being with me ... and ... he's totally lit up ... while his eyes are exactly on and with his eyes.
Now, there comes a point in sharing any experience when words become inadequate to describe it. There's a point in every experience beyond which it can't be captured in words, which is ineffable, which is beyond language - and this is one such occasion. His eyes are exactly on and with his eyes while he's out here fully present totally lit up. And what I'm getting from him is an invitation, an invitation which is boldly saying "Be this! Take it. It's yours.".
His invitation is really saying much more than merely "Be this!" - as powerful as that may be. It's coaching "Do this! You can do this!" (I did say it was what he did with his eyes). It's offering "Have this!". Across the entire visual spectrum, both introspectively and out here, he shares his transformation.
