It is sadly seen many times in rapists and other violent criminals that they are scratched in the neck and face but the eyes are unharmed. While we are very honed genetically to protect the eyes from harm a large portion of this reality comes from the victim being unable to cause such harm to another human being. In these cases it is best to consider the situation as a whole. We are humans or people and so are others. Placing the health of others over our own when they try to harm us places us in an illogical area of existence and this must be brought into attention.
Start by placing your fingers flat over your eyes and very slowly moving them around. Note where there is a feeling of fear or discomfort and how the rest of the body reacts to this contact. Repeat with a partner while maintaining a method to stop the contact when the contact brings too much discomfort the breathing cannot hold.
Now slowly touch without any pressure and move away from your own eyes and then with a partner. Feel how the eyes close when contact is obvious and keep breathing and if possible keep the other eye open. Now place one hand at the back of your partner head and a finger on his eye. Press the hand at the back of the head toward you slowly and carefully and allow yourself to be stopped when harm is around the corner.
Remember you are a human being and so are others. Harming others has it’s time and place sadly and sometimes doing harm is a good thing to prevent rape, murder or capture. Be safe and avoid harming yourself and then avoid doing harm to others.
