A favorite Wayne Dyer quotation: “It is impossible for you to be angry and laugh at the same time. Anger and laughter are mutually exclusive and you have the power to choose either.” Does this mean we deny our emotions? Certainly not. Anger, in and of itself, is not bad. All emotions are neutral. We are human and we have a ‘right’ to each and every emotion. To express our emotions in a healthy way and to simply breathe into them is one of the most powerful practices we can choose. However, some of us many get ‘stuck’ in a certain emotion or (possibly) even become ‘addicted’ to it. One of the healthiest ways to shift from an emotion that we choose that causes our own suffering is to laugh.
Remember the old adage from “The Readers’ Digest” magazine? Laughter is the best medicine. And, it truly is. Laughter helps us to raise our vibration to one of love, joy, and (ultimately) peace. Many times it would behoove us (yes, I really did use that word) to laugh at ourselves and the choices that the Ego-Mind insists upon making. After all, it is choice. Lately, our favorite mantra/affirmation is: “Life is short – laugh now!”
