The Averted Gaze

Mid conversation while staring into his eyes, I look away. It means I’m ashamed of something when I can’t keep a gaze.  Being ashamed of what one is and what one feels denotes a lack of faith and belief in ones Self.  So why did I look away from his gaze?

Aversion. To turn away from. To divert attention from something means one is no longer focused. When one does not give full focus to an idea it fails to manifest. When one averts a gaze he does not give full focus to the subject. He loses awareness. He loses power. He can be controlled.

A direct gaze denotes control, power, self mastery. The man who turns away is the weaker. _MG_7792
