What is life if not playing?
I like to play games. When we have fun, we can connect with the children inside us and perceive life as it is, in the moment, completely present. One of the games I decided to play one day in Thailand is to play with colours.
My week was divided into different colors, and if the colour was designated for the day I would wear this colour, eat food of this colour and collect all of the things I owned to take a pretty picture.
Here are some examples
Why did I do it?
- to have fun
- to change the perspective of looking at food and clothes and colors
- to limit myself in order to expand further
How did it feel?
- eating food of one colour really sucks. You cannot choose what to eat, and you also start lying to yourself – what is pink seems red, and orange seems yellow. There is no blue food in Thailand, except for butterfly pea flowers from who you have make a tea (and can also colour rice with it)
- paying attention to one colour per day I could notice so much of this colour everywhere. When we live on autopilot, we forget to notice how colourful our life is
- changing the conditions of your everyday living puts you a little bit out of the comfort zone, and at the same time it is fun! It is fun to learn how to adjust, to observe and learn from life itself
Exercise for you
Please do this step by step.
- Look around the room you are in, and pay attention to all the green things in the room, try to remember everything that is green.
- Close your eyes and speak out loud the name of the green objects. How many do you remember?
- With your eyes closed try to remember as many brown objects in the room as possible. Can you remember as many brown things as you remember green?
- What is your conclusion? Let me know in the comment.
