“Laughter is carbonated holiness.” ~ Anne Lamott
I’ve been crazy busy these days creating courses in the synchronicity playground, where my life is becoming so non-ordinary in its meaningful coincidences that I am startled into wonder and awe daily.
Today, I just want to share a reblog of one of the private classes from the Love Your Body course because one thing I can say about the non-duality crowd is sometimes they are so damn serious! Laughter is a sign you are in your joy zone and the joy zone is the true causeless happiness of your being.
Anyway, hope this post gives you a good laugh! Oh, watch the Mooji video right here if you want to get a taste of the bliss-bomb of being-ness. It looks like the fellow in this video has had an awakening in that moment.
One of the things I noticed in my own post-spiritual awakening was just how much laughter was available to me that I’d been suppressing with seriousness. (I wrote a bit about that here in my article, Laughter Happens, Seriously, if you are curious.)
On a purely physiological level, laughter is a tonic for the body. Here’s a list of just some of the benefits:
- Boosts immunity
- Lowers stress hormones
- Decreases pain
- Relaxes your muscles
- Prevents heart disease
Just as pleasure is one way the body feels loved, so is laughter. Osho was a big proponent for reducing seriousness and activating humor. In his words:
Laughter has tremendous beauty, a lightness. It will bring lightness to you and it will give you wings to fly.
Watch a funny movie or TV show, read a funny book or go on you tube and find something good to laugh at. Do this today and if you can once a day for the rest of this bootcamp. Even a minute each day of self-induced laughter will work wonders.
This very short few seconds only home video cracks me up EVERY time I watch it!
and Ellen DeGeneris always makes me laugh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5V5IzWgZzcY
and there is of course, Comedy CENTRAL.
Also, please share you favorite You Tube funny video on our FB group. Let’s make each other laugh out loud.
