"Can I Laugh At Myself?"
I have great gratitude that I can laugh at myself today. I have stuff about me that is so ridiculous that the only thing that gets me through the day sometimes is that I laugh at it. If I didn’t have a relationship with the God of my understanding, I wouldn’t be able to laugh.
I used to take myself pretty seriously. I had pain and I thought I needed it to be seen. The problem with that is the more it was seen, the less I laughed. In fact, more pain came up to be seen till finally, nobody wanted to look anymore.
A friend came along who taught me how to laugh at myself and how silly so much of our serious thinking is. Yes, lots of stuff happened “to me.” But lots of stuff happens with everybody. It’s no longer “Why me?” but “Why not me, and what do I do with it?”
Laughing at it where I can somehow find humor in it makes a huge difference. Look at life, see the silliness in it when you compare it to the Love that God is. Look at what you take seriously and make yourself laugh at it. Several years ago, I knocked over a glass of water on a good table. I heard myself say, “Oh goodie, I was hoping that would happen.” I laughed at that. Suddenly it didn’t matter. I wasn’t bad for knocking the water over and knocking over the water wasn’t bad. I cleaned it up and went on about my business.
As I write this, I am thinking of some things I’ve been wishing were different and I have said, Oh goodie I was hoping …would happen. I’m laughing now as I write this. I guess they are different now.
Thank you for listening.
Let’s affirm together, “The Superconscious Mind is awake in me now!”
God IS Good and hysterically funny,
