THE SITE — Namaste, everyone. Let's begin this session.
Today's video lesson is from a man who has become one with the tool of his trade — a hammer. Let's see what we can learn from his meditation on hammer tricks and how it can help us find our place in the universe.
Breathe in as Justin Fiddler twirls his hammer around his finger like a gunman from the Wild West, and breathe out as he balances the end of the hammer on his palm. Appreciate your feelings of amazement as you continue to watch.
Visualize becoming one with the hammers Mr. Fiddler has done. It is an extension of your arm. Don't think about how you're less experienced than Mr. Fiddler. Try not to visualize the hammer careening out of control and knocking out your teeth, thonking you on the head, or smashing your tender toes.
Search your mind. Breathe in as you appreciate how much this video entertained you, and breathe out as you decide not to try this at home because you want to keep all your teeth.
Visualize the peace you've made with your decision as I tell you that this video is two years old, and let go of any tension in as you realize the video is currently gaining traction online so its age is irrelevant.
Breathe in; breathe out. Namaste.
