Question: WHAT HELPS YOU RELAX AND BE FULLY PRESENT IN THE MOMENT?
Transcript of Video:
Some of the things that I do for play may look like I’m working. I can get completely lost on a nice afternoon in the beehives or, amazingly enough, I love to shovel the chicken coop out. It looks like work, and to a certain extent, it is, but it’s something that I can become completely consumed by and, in a sense, be set on fire by. Now it’s strange to think of shoveling out a chicken coop as setting me on fire. But I can be completely lost. I can completely lose myself in that. And in a funny way, by doing something like that, by getting completely lost, I become completely present to the moment and, I think in that way, become fire or become consumed.
