One of the reasons I am so interested in Play as a Way in practice is that when I see other animals, including human animals, at play, I see something strikingly authentic, liberated, and even ephemeral. Something mysterious is expressing itself. It is joyful—but also powerful. And I know this feeling in my cells, and I trust it. I think all of us, no matter how old we are, can benefit tremendously from the power of play. We can play with a new idea, try on a different point of view. Breathe with it, move with it, sit with it. And know that it, like the breath, isn't some fixed, permanent and unchanging thing. We need not be afraid to play, or think, differently. Play may indeed be a way to help integrate our feeling and thinking natures.
