I take my embodied enlightenment deadly seriously. Meaning, I vowed when I came here that I would do whatever it takes to claim my freedom as a human. Whatever it takes to embody my SELF in this lifetime. This lifetime for me is my last, so I am making it count. It’s my designated lifetime to reunite with my soul in the most intimate way. There is no other relationship more important to me, than the one with my soul. Most reading this understand that statement on a deep level.
And, having said that, I can’t imagine being here and not having a few good laughs. They say humor is good for the soul. That’s true. But humor is primarily a human characteristic. They also say that behind every joke is generations of pain. Also true. A seasoned soul, who has lived many lifetimes here, who has dived deeply into the physical experience has developed a great sense of humor along the way. They may not be a stand up comedian, but they absolutely appreciate humor. Laughter has a profound effect on the body. Laughing moves stuck energies. It lifts the spirits.
And of course humor, what makes us laugh, is very personal. Not everyone enjoys the same humor. Humor is also a universal quality. No matter where we live in the world, we all find certain things funny.
We also notice that what we guffawed about in the past somehow doesn’t fly now. Humor changes over time. We also are more sensitive to laughs at the expense of others who may be vulnerable.
We as the human have a history that is great material for laughs. And, now that we are embodying our soul, the eternal part of us, we as the human can help our soul to appreciate our sense of humor. As our soul, we don’t really experience the type of pain and suffering the human does. As our soul, we are removed from it, and that’s a good thing.
As an evolved soul, we have taken all of our earthly experiences and all of the wisdom from those experiences, but not the physical or emotional pain.
And now, our soul wants us, the human, to experience the bliss and the joy that our soul feels all of the time. Personally I have had many such moments. They are delicious, of course. They are exquisite.
Yet, there’s something missing. I believe it’s a good guffaw. A few good belly-laughs. Nothing in ‘heaven’ can take the place of those. And, we had to put ourselves through hell to appreciate those laughs, didn’t we?
Our soul wants us to adjust to it, so we should expect our soul to adjust to us too, and to laugh at the things we find hilarious.
So, don’t be afraid to tune into that late night comedy, or whatever makes you laugh. Because taking this embodied enlightenment seriously is imperative, but make sure it doesn’t lead to things like too much seriousness, if you get my meaning.
It’s good to laugh, especially at ourselves.
Because something happens along the way to our enlightenment. We discover that we may have put ourselves through a lot of needless pain and suffering. But, let’s not judge it. Maybe it was for the jokes.
