Fear and joy cannot coexist in the same space.
The ego-mind keeps us trapped within the illusion of lack by causing us to believe that something is missing. Life becomes very serious. Lower consciousness attributes such as guilt, fear or anger distract us from the limitless joy that surrounds us.
Laughter is the outward sound of a soul that is awakening. It bubbles up, takes over and scatters the heaviness of the mind. It sparks joy in others and brings us fully into the present moment.
Should you find yourself getting lost in the intensity of life, seek out that which makes you laugh. Allow yourself the absolute joy of surrendering to lightheartedness and joyful expression. That is far more healing and powerful than anything the mind can create.
And most importantly, remember that nothing is more important than your state of consciousness in this moment.
