Hey everybody!!! Please know that a SENSE OF HUMOR is one of the most powerful DIVINE WEAPONS!!!
Many of us know that things are not easy out there for lots of reasons… but the Masters always keep their sense of humor so we should emulate that ability.
The more we laugh the less stress we feel and people like Norman Cousins even have documented ways of healing diseases with laughing!
There are many reasons why laughter and levity help relieve stress. Laughing stimulates the autonomic nervous system’s parasympathetic side! When the parasympathetic nervous system is emerges it means the body is relaxed. Relaxation and healing are very similar words because all healing comes from a state of relaxation first.
Laughter in general and laughter therapy and amazing! Most important is having a sense of humor about things in life because that affects the way we internalize the stresses and challenges of life. If we can maintain our levity and sense of humor even in challenging times it will help us to remain stronger and and healthier.
Getting depressed and having pity for yourself is common when we are confronted by overwhelming challenges. It is critical to appreciate how a sense of humor can neutralize the power that any external event has over you. All emotions are normal and natural and it is best to be able to experience the entire spectrum… the point of this little post is that you appreciate that your ability to stay laughing is actually a spiritual activity and is often ultimately part of the healing process!
