It’s been over a month since the play began and what I’ve learned in these last weeks is that although play comes in different forms, the energy of play is always the same. When there is play, there is no resistance. Playing means letting go of preconceived notions, of musts and shoulds. It means being open to what is, right here and now, and finding beauty in whatever we’re presented with. Play is synonymous to love. Its energy is pure and clear. When we play, we love. It’s not the things we do that determine how we feel, it’s the energy we give to the things we do and to the things we need to do, but aren’t doing. Playing means doing what you love and loving what you do. Playing is doing what feels right to you, right now. It is doing what you need to do now, and love it. Whether it is engaging with a four-year-old, watching a movie, cleaning the bathroom or paying the bills.
Playing is balancing the act. Play is essential to our well-being. It is the natural energy booster that allows us to get things done while following our flow and nourishing our inner-child. The best thing about play is that it’s easy, fun, and did I mention cheap? Too easy for some, maybe. No need to install a new app, download a new tool or spend a lot of money on some kind of gadget or hyped course. All you have to do is let go of your internal rules, turn on your imagination and trust that all will be well. How about it, are you game?
