sometimes the spiritual path can be portrayed as being a little dour, without joy. But not so! It doesn’t have to be all serious!
having fun, being joyful is very much a part of spiritual growth! it’s seeing the comedy of life, it’s ironies, it’s unfortunate misunderstandings and overlaps; it’s the wry smile of someone who KNOWS.
experience teaches us many things; that there is tragedy, there is downfall – but there is also the Uplift, the rising on the tide of Joy.
Be Happy, and guffaw a little. Laugh out loud to the soundtrack of South Park.
