    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I've noticed that when i walk, i probably look down more often than up.

    I think i'm looking down, so i can make sure i don't trip and fall ... :look:

    But could this be something else ... :eeek:

    Have you ever thought about it for your own self?

    What do you do ... ??

    When you walk, are your eyes cast up or down, most often?

    I even tried to walk with my eyes looking straightforward, most of the time, but can hardly keep from looking down ... to see where my next step is gonna be.

    Anywho ... just some of the krazee stuff my mind's been think'n lately ... :)

    Please share.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Destee

    when my family first moved to the 'homeland' (Transkei) within SA, we lived in a very rural area. there was a local hospital where people travelled hours to receive medical attention - but the village consisted of a dirt road and a smattering of huts along it. a corner shop (hut) at the end to buy the basics.. bread, milk, sugar...

    I recall - like yesterday - this hunk of a man/boy (I was 12) who used to eyeball me as I made my trip to the shop. One day he spoke to me! *heart a-flutter!*. he told me he really liked me. He said I wasnt anything like my sister.. he said when I walked down the street I kept my head low, humbled, while she walked too proud/arrogant.

    Well, there went my *crush* out the window! :lol:

    Granted, I was a child, but the lesson remained. Unless I am dodging puddles or potholes. I look where I am going.

    :happens:Up or down.....MMMMmmmmmm....good one..well before i got my first pair of glasses i walked with my head up..no particular reason...just did. After i got them i had to walk with my eyes...not head but eyes down. It took a while to get used to them. So it's the same thing for me now....never have walked with my head down. But alway looking ahead.:happens:

    I walk with it up but it's darn sure doing a 360 at all times....and I mean all times! I done even developed a bionic eye....i be zooming in on cars before they reach me, pedestrians down the block and shadows that don't fit the environment.

    mostly i be walking with my head up..but my eyes be looking down..
    they be looking all around..although if i run into someone the eyes come right at them...but then they go back down again.
    and i know it's cause i do not want to fall or trip on these cold cement streets.

    Looking down can mean being humble and looking up can mean being proud.

    I look down and I look up when I walk.

    A humble person is someone with a forgiving heart.

    A proud person is someone who's above pity or degradation.

    I feel that a person should be humble and proud.

    The problem with a person who is just being proud without showing the ability to be humble, the proud person begin to look down on others without any logical reason.

    The problem with a person just being humble without showing the ability to be proud of oneself, allows the humble person to be mistreated by others.

    I feel that balance is the key to life.

    Peace!
