Just Relax!

Mr.Nut is a master of relaxation.  He says that when humans think of the word "relaxation", it's not a picture of a squirrel that comes to mind!  But in reality, squirrels truly are some of the most relaxed beings on the planet!

Resting on a branch
Notice that in any given moment, they can just stop what they're doing and rest!  They don't label one activity "rest" and another activity "work".  Squirrel energy just flows through them and so they can be at ease in all circumstances. 

They don't have thoughts that would say, "I'm too tired to bury nuts today" or "It's so hot out, I have to just stop and be still."  They just do what they do without a thought... or a plan.

Mr.Nut says that if we could be at ease no matter what's going on, we would experience the peace of a squirrel...

              "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, rest in Great Mystery.  And the peace that passes all understanding will guard your heart and mind."

Mr.Nut tells me that the squirrels are here to teach us how to play and be happy.  Here is a sweet story about a squirrels' job:
