Yes, this film shows the juxtaposition of the challenges of daily life and practice. Of course sitting is not the only time we practice. We are practicing all day long, both at work and play, with humor and soul searching.

I thought this short film demonstrated its theme of peace and meditation within the struggles and play of daily samsaric existence very well by juxtaposing meditative and very peaceful environmental scenes with the work and play of our lives. The humor acts to both calm and entertain the viewer while depicting the film's ponderous theme.
