“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.
My Forty Day Magic Challenge and the Love Your Body Magic and Miracles Bootcamp are filled with folks who dazzle me with their wisdom and willingness to discover who they really are.
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.
When is the last time you had an amazing belly laugh? One of those body heaving, tear-inducing episodes of laughter that leaves you feeling so light and alive afterward?
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.
