Healing Laughter is Good for the Soul



Laughter Refreshes Your Spirit

the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.'

The Healing Grace of True Laughter

'You can't deny laughter; when it comes

it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants.' 

Stephen King


'A wonderful thing about true laughter is that 

it just destroys any kind of system of dividing people.' 

John Cleese

except when milk comes out of my nose.'

the cobwebs of your heart.

smiling, bright-eyed, happy children; 

no music so sweet as their clear and ringing laughter.' 

P. T. Barnum


'Let there be more joy and laughter in your living.'

Eileen Caddy


'I had a list of rules I made up one time. 

It says: Tell the truth, sing with passion, work with laughter, 

and love with heart. Those are good to start with, anyway.

Kris Kristofferson




Laughing and Fighting for Freedom

'So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, 

but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. 

Lord, let your laughter ring forth. 

Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, 

rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. '

Laughter, Hope, and Fear

'So many tangles in life are ultimately hopeless that 

we have no appropriate sword other than laughter.'

'Comedy is defiance. 

It's a snort of contempt in the face of fear and anxiety. 

And it's the laughter that allows hope to creep back on the inhale.' 

Will Durst




Laughter Restores Health

'Live by this credo: have a little laugh at life and 

look around you for happiness instead of sadness. 

Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations.' 

Red Skelton


'I love life in spite of all that mars it. 

I love friendship, jokes and laughter.

Tahar Ben Jelloun


'Laughter heals all wounds, 

and that's one thing that everybody shares. 

No matter what you're going through, 

it makes you forget about your problems. 

I think the world should keep laughing.' 

Kevin Hart


An Extravert's Active Meditation

How does an extrovert rebalance and refresh? This one does it by scanning her environment for words and messages until one speaks to her. 

Today's message 'Healing Laughter' provided me a week's worth of active meditation through studying, contemplating, drawing, painting and putting together a visual display of Healing Laughter and what that means to me. And like a true extravert, I am compelled to share a bit of lightness with the world. 

Wishing you a big helping of Hearty Laughter today!
