Today's excerpt is also from Volume 2 of the "Jewels of Truth" series on spiritual wisdom. The topic explores the responsible and caring use of comedy by means of laughter as the object of our attention. How to keep it mostly in good taste, versus bad directly at a person or perhaps an ethnic group.
Enjoy as always.
The best medicine of the heart and mind is that of a sincere humor that always welcomes laughter in abundance. Laughing at the silly events that transpire in life aids us in gaining an understanding of humility within us. It is a grace best performed in respect of others, but still with a gleeful demeanor that promotes delight. Laughter is best enjoyed amongst friends where rivalry can be enjoyed and often laughed at in earnest. Although any humor at someones expense may be comedic, but is always by nature in poor taste. Especially if it is cruel in nature and not wanton attention that does nothing to promote goodwill. Be kind, but have fun in your humor by offering it from a place of sincere love and not anger. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
