Art of Play

Play consciousness is the highest form of relating

If you can play in life, you can find play anywhere. Play is a state of consciousness that allows us to experience joy, freedom, and creativity. Play is not limited to recreational activities, but rather encompasses a mindset that can be applied to all aspects of life. It is a way of engaging with the world that involves loosening our grip on rigid beliefs and entering fully into the present moment. Play requires skill and the ability to see beyond narrow perspectives, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the game of life. It is through play that we can tap into our true selves and express authentically for the purpose of mutual liberation.

Play is the activity of perfection. If everything in existence is part of the divine, we no longer need to guard against the "un-divine" and can engage with life in a playful manner, appreciating its nuances and delights, instead of striving to fix or change things.
