“To BE intuitive, we must cultivate our sense of humour and look for reasons to laugh everywhere.
We become so self-absorbed and serious when it comes to our problems and melodramas that we
disconnect from our deeper sense of who we are as beautiful souls—we withdraw from life instead of
enjoying it. Laughter brings us back to ourselves and back to life.”
Sonia Choquette from Trust Your Vibes
*tickle tickle*What have you laughed at lately?!? If you’re looking for a GREAT chuckle, I think you’ll dig this
YouTube clip called “Everything’s Amazing and Nobody’s Happy” by comedian Louis CK on Conan
O’Brien’s show talking about, among other things, how it should be illegal to complain about
anything when sitting in a chair in the air (aka flying)! It’s HILARIOUS and an incredible reminder
on how easily we can take life’s gifts for granted. :)
And, here’s one of the 33 “six sensory practice” exercises that concludes the chapter called
“Laughing Matters”: “This week, laugh a lot. Look for the humor in things: Sing in the shower,
create shampoo sculptures with your hair in the bathtub, make funny faces while brushing
your teeth, read humorous books, rent comedies, go to a karaoke club with a friend and join
in, call your best pal from grade school and reminisce, goof around with your kids, and play
with your dog. In other words, get over your seriousness and let your hair down! Fake it if
you have to, but do a good job of it. Don’t worry if you look foolish—the more foolish you
are, the more enlightened you’ll feel.”
These thoughts you express of disconnecting with interpretation was important for me personally to read. I find this may be precisely what I need to do more often. Getting away from the constant observational, hyperactive thinking mindset is like giving yourself a vacation!
Time to Take it Easy.... Challenging but necessary. Bouncing atound the house and being silly feels great. The company we keep as well is important for this kind of "freedom". Im often around very serious adults which has taxed my positive energies.
