You can tell how relaxed your eyes are by how easily you can move your gaze around and how little sensation you get from your eyes while doing it. If each movement of your eye is a small but noticeable feeling of a muscle moving, your eyes are tense. If you find that while practicing looking from point to point you can move your gaze in one direction more easily than another, your eyes are tense. But what you’ll notice is the mere act of consciously moving your eyes in any direction will cause tension. If you prioritize working with your conscious attention and letting your interest direct your eyes, and if you don’t think about your eyes, you will be able to notice after the fact that your eyes must have been moved by your attention, even though you didn’t feel it.
