My heart is filled with appreciation for the precious people who have enriched my life throughout the years with their wonder-filled sense of humor. Every time I think of them I experience a joyful sense of lightness and a deep-seated renewal.
“A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life.” William Arthur Ward
“The kingdom of heaven can thus be seen to be the state of consciousness in which there is room for the wildly improbable as well as the inevitable and immutable certainties to which a major attention is given.” Marc Edmund Jones
“A good sense of humor will get you everywhere.” Josh Bowman
A fellow philosopher that I admire believes that there are more troubles from taking things too seriously than the reverse. Imagination enhances the possibility to relax and experience an unconditioned enjoyment at regular intervals, creating a fullness of rounding out into a living and effective personality. He expresses that, “It is as men and women are able to play the comedian or let themselves go in a contemplation or even enjoyment of their weaknesses that they are able to develop and maintain any strength.”
A sense of humor keeps us grounded and grateful. It is a good reminder that things are in process of transformation in a joyful flow that highlights balance and stability while providing room for the wildly improbable.
There are plentiful ways to enhance this ability, within others: smile, count your blessings, laugh at situations, surround yourself with positive reminders to lighten up – funny pictures, magnets, sticky notes, or whatever else make you think that life is in a state of flux.
Here are some of my favorite affirmations that bring to mind exploring possibilities in the wonders of life.
- I make myself essential to the flow of experience.
- I thrill anew to cosmic love and harmony.
- I rejoice within my heart to every breath of life.
My sense of humor fully manifests through laughter and dance, letting the whole of me become an expression of who I am.
