The first time I met the Dalai Lama at 23, I had anticipated looking into his eyes and seeing how beautiful he was. But when I looked in his eyes for the first time, and each subsequent time, I was utterly overwhelmed by how beautiful I AM. It literally knocked all the human babbling straight out of my mind and cracked my heart wide open. He offered a clear mirror with my own beauty reflected. I have met with many clear seeing eyes who do this. Children often do it. Nature does this. And occasionally we have loved ones who do it as well. I just spent an amazing week with my beautiful sister, beauty reflecting back and forth, exploding with joy, wonder and heart cracking splendor.
