20140827-220447.jpgDay 12 – Living Laughter

Today’s quote is from E.E. Cummings. “The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.”

Today’s centering thought is life makes me smile and laugh.

Today’s Sanskrit mantra is Kleem Upahasa, which means “I attract joyful laughter.”

From today’s message:
Pure, innocent laughter is the most obvious sign of the joy we feel in our hearts. It is also a powerful and instant way of spreading that joy all around you.”

The twelfth day of Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s Expanding Your Happiness Meditation Experience was about laughter.

Oprah shared that laughter “comes from the heart. It removes barriers and releases the healing energy of play. Laughter is contagious. It’s an extraordinarily powerful life energy. Enjoy a good laugh and you can’t help feeling more alive, more optimistic. That is the uplifting spirit of happiness, and you create it every time your eyes light up in laughter.”

I love to laugh, even at small, silly things. I don’t believe I can get through a day without laughing. Can you? It just makes everything brighter after a good laugh.

I believe in its healing, too. If I am sad, I look for a funny show or a funny piece to read to lift my spirit. You can’t go wrong with laughter.

Deepak said that “if your life is filled with humor and laughter, then your flow of bliss is strong and healthy.”

I am all for a healthy, strong flow of bliss!
