Laughter is the only medicine...

“Learn to laugh. Seriousness is a sin, and it is a disease. Laughter has tremendous beauty, it will bring lightness to you, and it will give you wings to fly.” – Osho

Most of the human race takes life too serious and that is such a waste, because it doesn't last forever. We spend so much time pondering on the seriousness of everything around us that we forget to just enjoy it. I agree there is a time for deep thought and contemplation on our existence, but we need to just forget all that from time to time and revel in the fun of it.

Lay down your tools for one day and simply be amused by it all. There is a Japanese proverb that says time spend laughing is time spend with the gods. There is no need to only be serious to experience the godliness of the universe.  I think our creator must have a wonderful sense of humor to put up with us every day.

“When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.” – Buddha

It doesn't need us to worry about it, it is already perfect. All of this was created to be enjoyed with pleasure and fun and infinite merriment. Even in times of hardship we can find something to make us giggle uncontrollably. I am sure you have times when it all just bubbles up inside you and you can’t help but let it ring out into the world.

What is more beautiful than a child’s innocent laughter? So don’t be too grown-up about it all, and if you find something funny today don’t hold back your laughter.

“To me there is nothing more sacred than love and laughter, and there is nothing more prayerful than playfulness.”  – Osho

Blessed Be in laughter today!!
