Laughter is one of the best ways to move energy and recalibrate our cells. You won’t hear that statement so much from our beloved non-physical friends, our guides, archangels, ascended masters who still reside on the other side, because…well…frankly, as much as I honor them, respect them and love them eternally, they can’t tell a joke worth a damn, am I right?
Oh they try, bless them. But their timing and delivery are all off. We humans have it over them in the humor department and that’s because you have to be here, in the flesh, experiencing this roller coaster to be able to extract a joke from the seeming tragedy, dysfunction and chaos called life on Earth. I’m not talking about trying to cover up your true feelings with nervous laughter, or ridiculing anyone. I am referring to that deep belly laugh when you are watching a favorite TV comedy or recalling that time, when you thought you looked pretty awesome, but were unwittingly dragging a train of toilet paper under your shoe.
A good dose of humor is a healthy elixer for all of us, no matter our background, financial status, age, race, gender, ethnicity, political persuasion or spiritual bent. It cuts through all of that to connect and relate to each other. It’s the very human condition that gives birth to this phenomenon. We laugh, because we’ve been there, either physically or emotionally. We’ve all put our foot in our mouth, we’ve all stubbed our toe. We’ve all been politically incorrect. We’ve all been to a funeral and couldn’t resist throwing our voice so the dead guy sounded like he was talking. No? Just me?
Why do we find things funny? It’s funny because it’s true. It’s funny because it’s understated or overstated. There are so many varieties of humor to satisfy everyone’s taste. Humor can be sophisticated and subtle or slapstick and obvious. It points out our so-called imperfections and embraces them. It’s funny because it’s unexpected. What better place than this life to find material to laugh at? Have you ever run across anyone who has no sense of humor? Scary aren’t they?
What people consider funny has changed over the centuries, but what has remained constant is the ability to laugh at ourselves and at life. When I cross over to the other side I hope to take what I learned and teach the new recruits, the angels waiting to come here, how to tell a good joke.
