Dr. David Simon said, “Laughter is a symptom of spirituality. Laughter is the flow of love coursing through your body. Laughter is the nectar of present moment awareness.” Do you view life from the perspective of your soul or your ego? When you are sitting in the lap of God surrounded by his love it is so much easier to see the humor and irony in daily events and unexpected challenges. You view life with a sense of openness and spontaneity and feel uninhibited. In contrast, your ego views life through the lens of suspicion and fear.
It sees events and challenges as threatening and restrictive. Every occurrence is compared to a previous hurt or offense and barriers are erected. Are you living in the now or reacting from your past? God is love and you are here to learn unconditional love. You begin by becoming your most tender, loving and compassionate friend. Each day say to yourself, “I love, value and accept all parts of me. I know I am doing the best that I can.” There are two parts of you that you need to unconditionally love: the part you show the public and the part you keep in the shadows. You can’t love, value and accept others until you love, value and accept all of yourself! As this healing progresses you grow in awareness and consciousness. You will begin to feel more liberated and feel the unrestricted flow of energy through your body. You will feel more connected to nature and those around you. Your inhibitions will begin to fall away as you realize we are all in the same boat and you are independent of the opinion of others. Soon you will be able to laugh, sing and dance when life gives you the opportunity. A cab driver and a preacher arrived at the pearly gates at the same time. St. Peter greeted them and gave the cabbie a silk robe to put on and gave the preacher a cloth robe to put on. The minister paused, then asked St. Peter why his robe was only made of cloth. St. Peter responded, “It’s rather simple, really. Everything here is based on merit. When you preached people slept; when he drove people prayed.”
