Posted:Please use the search function, as this has been discussed immensely.

Practicing with closed eyes seems to enhance "body memory" which makes the motions more natural and inherent within you, and not visually based, which means you have to pay attention to what your are doing.

In giving love there is an equal grace.
Nor need one seek the aura in the face,
As love unveils the beauty of all things."
