I remember reading a refreshing book, God Loves Laughter, by William Sears and ended up wondering why there is not more laughter in our world. What seems to dominate most consciousness is a mean spirit of competition and conflcit in the world today that leaves a battered sense of self. Laughter is the divine elixir that can ameliorate destructive emotional and character traits by creating a channel of healthy release leading you to a place of happiness.
It does not matter how short-lived laughter and happiness are, it opens the heart to goodness.
Of course there is pain, injury, suffering in the world. That is understood. But, dwelling on these unpleasant things of life blocks one’s true life purpose: to be happy and to love.
“Purpose and laughter are the twins that must not separate. Each is empty without the other.” ~Robert K. Greenleaf
Love and happiness-the twin pillars that shoulder purpose. When external events or situations confound our emotions, the best remedy is to search for that moment of inner joy and purpose to restore your power. Gabrielle Bernstein, founder of Her Future (www.herfuture.com) is on to something. She uses social media to connect, inspire and advise women to retain their power regardless of the simple, temporary pain that may scare, confuse, or depress them. The same advise is useful for me. Maintain your power by hooking into purpose and laughter.
Joy gives us wings. Fly to the realm of indomitable spirit. Use the invisible, but omnipresent, string of hope and inner resourcefulness that ever connects you to purpose, power, and laughter. Stay in-joy so that you can enjoy life. Stop right now and make a declaration-I AM A JOYFUL AND HAPPY BEING.
Make laughter a part of your Monday Miracle.
