Importance of Play. The Gravitas of Levity. (GW)

Who can say more about the importance of play! PLAY! It’s vital for children to learn, according to researchers and child psychologists. But what they fail to realize is the importance for adults. Play allows you to refill your energetic tank so you can have the wherewithal to do all the responsibility and care-taking things you do.

Play, laugh, sing: three necessary components for freeing up your spirit and restocking the energetic shelves. Doesn’t matter if you laugh so hard you snort or sing off key. What matters is that you have fun!

Lighten up people! This serious-all-the-time thing is just not good for you. Let your spirit be free. Just for a minute. You’ll feel better. — GoodWitch

Importance of Play. The Gravitas of Levity. (BW)

I get a lot of grief for seemingly laughing at everything in life. Meanwhile, I view myself as responsible and grounded — so I’m all about this theme! Children’s brains develop and learn via play — and as my studies as a manager and someone who’s had success at long-term relationships of all types show, levity is the highest octane fuel to keep an engine a high-performing one. That good news means we seem to never outgrow the learning blocks of play and levity. Play and levity are the important stuff of living with clearer eyes/vision and sharper listening ability, emotional un-encumbrance (a.k.a. staying present, or say ancient hippy secret: Be Here Now), the spiritual emancipation of ego-slaying. Why take yourself so seriously? Others don’t. Those who don’t value the gravitas of play and levity in life tend to fall into this trap. If you drop your own self-importance: Who’s left to hear the engrossing whining? Take the blame? Point more accusatory fingers at?

Quoting my Brit comic twin (life view, that is) Ricky Gervais: “Whot? Are you havin’ a laugh?” Yes, more please! — BadWitch

Accepting Responsibility (Not Just Taking It) (BW)

To be responsible is to be emotionally mature (at any age). True to one’s self. Accountable. We all know people (maybe some of us even are they) who shun their responsibilities as early and often as possible. Ironically, accepting responsibility is a great path to real freedom. There’s a lot of lightening up and levity as reward of truly accepting responsibility.

On the other hand, taking responsibility merely out of obligation or blind habit has professional grade self-imposed locks on it, and represents the oppression and imprisonment of being forced against one’s will to do something. Merely taking responsibility has an immature and non-present aura to it.

To do the work toward real freedom is mature and paradoxically can have a lightening effect. Acceptance is not giving up, it’s giving up mindlessness.  — BadWitch
