Let your smile light up the world.
“To me there is nothing more sacred than love and laughter, and there is nothing more prayerful than playfulness.”
In the meeting of opposites, we discover paradoxical truths that teach us that everything we experience is a dance between light and dark. We cannot experience joy without knowing sorrow, nor freedom without enslavement. The ability to enter the sublime connects us to one another through laughter.
Excessive thought robs us of all joy. It takes our attention out of the Now by worrying about the future or replaying the events of the past. Consider the playful abandon and spontaneity experienced when surprised into laughter. There is nothing more sacred. An authentic, heartfelt belly laugh jolts you deeply into the experience of the present moment. Your energy lights up, tears run down your face and time stops.
This aspect of enlightenment does not rob you of the ability to be compassionate, caring or empathetic during times of challenge. Conversely, it allows you to access expanded vision and hold space for another while being a vibrant example of love and joy.
