Eye Gazing with one hundred people #eyegazing100
June 5th, 2021 (土) I plan to go to Shibuya to offer Free Eye Gazing with anyone who is interested. I don’t guess that I will connect with 100 people tomorrow, but I can certainly put the word out and connect with that many over the month of June, I imagine. Gather online #eyegazing100 meetup.com instagram.com/hadashiusagi facebook.com/thunderrabbit twitter.com/thunderrabbit youtube.com/thunderrabbit 6 June 2021: 11% complete! Not including people I know, I shared eye gazing moments with 11 people yesterday!

What is Eye Gazing?
eyeゲージングとは。 瞑想法の一つです。 誰でも深い瞑想体験ができます。 瞑想の姿勢で相手の目をただ観るのです。 そうすると自分の心が相手にくっきりと見えてきます。 恥ずかしがり屋の人でも大丈夫です。 なぜか始まると深い意識に変化していきます。 本当の自分に気づき 自分の真の美しさがわかるでしょう。 目の中に見えるもの、心のプロセス、 体験はみなさん違いますが 経験後の変化。 自分の強い友人になる! 自分を知る。自分や他者をより愛せるようになったり 日常の中でのコミュニケーション能力が上がり、 相手をより受け入れたり 尊重し合えたりする力が増してきます。 この世の中がより身近になり もっとあなたの味方になっていくでしょう。 What is Eye Gazing? Eye gazing is the act of looking into someone’s eyes for an extended amount of time. It’s a powerful, intimate practice that can help you become closer to another person. Even if it lasts for only a few seconds, eye gazing can trigger a personal connection. Eye gazing with loved ones is beneficial for fostering even deeper connections.

Pulling stories together
It has taken me a full week to get back into a mode that I can post about the walk in any kind of reasonable way. Klaus summed it up, saying I had lost an identity of being the guy walking across Japan. There is grief in losing that part of myself.

recovery after walking across Japan
Wow yeah it’s like I’m just glad it’s over, sad it’s over, and not really sure how to integrate all the pieces. Plus picking up the pieces of broken stories to put into one coherent narrative.. There were lots of times that I found things on the map that I thought would be really cool and then they simply were not as cool and as I expected. This or that park / garden Planet Restroom And then there were some things I had no idea I would see that were really quite cool.

Shinanogawaohashi has stairs
I made it to the bridge with stairs going up, the final interesting point that I planned to visit before embarking on this quest.

Creative force
Last night my computer kept shutting down which I assume is caused by faulty interaction with the new battery. I woke up early to try to open the case and take out the battery but was not able to do it because of Apple’s use of pentalobe screws. Ugh. I tried super gluing my pen cap into the screw but the glue wasn’t strong enough. I tried using my knife from Bill to carve the pen cap into the right shape but wasn’t able to do it.

hanging out with Daisuke and Hiroe at Googoo

Great time with Daisuke and Hiroe at Googoo
Googoo is the sound of an empty stomach and of deep sleep. So what better name to use for a restaurant and guest house? Located just two minutes apart by foot, Googoo Restaurant and Googoo Guest House are a delicious and clean combo for Italian food and place to sleep off the meal and ample drinks. Daisuke and Hiroe are also backpackers, heading for months long adventures in different places around the world.
