Press Play

“You can't stop the future. You can't rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret to press play.” Jay Asher 

This morning, on a crowded subway, I was surrounded by people playing games on phones and listening to music. Everyone was focused and peaceful. The energy was great. Play is sensual thinking that tunes-in to balance, focus and delight.

We have an appetite for play because it's an easy and healthy way to de-stress. Pressing play is a good way to use time on the subway. Exploring and playing games or listening to music taps into creative, relaxing, spontaneous ways, to open doors in your mind. Some people go to the gym to meditate or de-stress; some do it on the subway.  

Play inspires us to feel curious. Curiosity is intuition that keeps your mind open. Discovery is the kiss of delight. When we play using our eyes and touch to focus energy, natural curiosity makes learning and discovery fun. Delight makes us delightful.  

Intuitive tools like dignity, curiosity, foresight and patience are part of play. Games allow us to be free in the moment. Time is all we have. Using time well is personal power. Playing games or listening to music on a subway or in a waiting room relaxes and de-stresses by giving the emotional side of our thinking a break. It's smart.

Some people on the train were closing their eyes. I wondered how many were on their way home after working all night. Rest and dreaming are as vital as play for de-stressing our lives.  I wonder, when you close your eyes and think of peace, what do you see?

Playing with problems, thoughts or situations using intuitive tools like dignity, patience and foresight, guarantees smart decisions. Stay curious and new solutions appear. Thinking sensually always brings insights. Random play with games prevents inner burnout. Being playful is intuitive. 

Whether you are playing a game or resting your eyes, you are amazing. Why not will yourself towards curiosity and playfulness? Imagine this is your chosen day to embrace Life. Press play and dance with freedom!
