More Laughter, More Healing

by Michael Corthell There is  a real power in laughter. No matter how you are feeling inside, a good belly laugh will change your mood. Isn't that true? You simply can't feel bad when you are smiling and laughing. Can you stay angry?  I can’t. “Laughter serves as a blocking agent. Like a bulletproof vest, it may help protect you against the ravages of negative emotions that can assault you in disease.”  – Norman Cousins Have a philosophy to love who and what you are and what you do, as well as laugh at yourself and at life in general. And why not? You're here for a short stay, enjoy this wonderful journey. I'm not saying, not to take life seriously, but you have to accept your life on life's terms—with the right attitude. So laugh and enjoy yourself, it will not only make life more fun, it could even lengthen it.         So, what do a positive mindset and good humor have to do with healing? Many studies have shown that laughter decreases stress hormones

[Compassion] I am You, You are Me...

  ''And if one member suffers, all the parts share the suffering;  if one member is honored, all rejoice with it.'' 1 Corinthians 12:26 Let me practice kindness, let me practice compassion, let me be joyful, and let me sing a song of love. Let me change one life, let me change the world. “A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ― Albert Einstein
