When we look at each other, I forget if it's me who looks at you or who you look at. The idea we have of ourselves is not that of an organism of living cells, but something else. We are a mental construction (opsychological) of abstract concepts that results in what we call the Self, or Ego. An Ego that is observed, reflected and materialized in the gaze of the other. An external look that acts as a mirror for us and is essential to evolve in life, but that, in imbalance with our own internal listening, results in an unbalanced, deformed and fragile evolution. Looking inward leaves us in a listening void, without distraction and in harmony. Photos © Ignacio Urrutia
