As humans, we underestimate the power that fun, laughter and not taking things seriously have on us being able to live our truth. Laughter is free, yet, we spend most of our time in states of fear, worry, anxiety etc.
Those feeling are not the natural state we are meant to be in.
Most people don’t even know how to have fun anymore, or how to have a laugh!
As humans, we get caught up in our pasts or futures. Or, we focus on trying to make more money, or searching for who we are or what our purpose is. Focusing on those things makes us forget about this main ingredient that can truly help us.
We’ve all heard that laughter is the best medicine right? They don’t say this for nothing. Laughter instantly lightens up the energies and atmosphere in any room. It enhances moods, it changes the brain chemistries and it helps ward off diseases, but most importantly and simply, if you think about it, laughter connects us.
It connects us to each other, to self and ultimately to the God within.
Laughter knows no difference, it doesn’t discriminate, it has no borders. It encourages connection. Everyone forgets differences, problems, pain and worries in those moments of laughter.
In times of laughter, life is happening exactly how God intends it to happen, simply, freely, beautifully, and, in the moment.
And when we are laughing, guess what is usually floating around?
Love is the core of everything that we strive to be, do and experience.
Laughing expands our feeling of love which then allows us to let down our guard. And when we let down our guard, we’re then capable of being our true selves, no inhibitions, just our pure selves. And in those moments, we allow others to be their true selves and collectively, we enhance our little part of the world and help heal pains and sorrows and worries, even if just for a moment.
