Let's take a moment to recognize the healing and transforming power of laughter in our hearts. A light heart heals us from fear and worry. G.K. Chesterton said, "Angels fly because they take themselves lightly." Laughter dissolves the hard places inside of us, and laughter dissolves the hard situations in the outer world. We know we are really progressing spiritually when we can laugh at and with ourselves. Roshi Sasaki says, "One genuine belly laugh is worth many hours of Zen meditation." Right now let's recognize the laughter in our hearts that frees us, heals us and makes us whole.
