Laughter Feeds the Soul

"What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul" -Yiddish Proverb-

We all know what it feels like to take a refreshing bath/shower; it is so Invigorating, that most of us look forward to it on a daily basis. It not only cleanses us, it invigorates us and for many of us, it is the main thing that propels us out of bed in the morning. There is also the smell of coffee and the anticipation of that first cup of the day, now don't think that I have changed my stand on coffee, I haven't, I just know that there are still a lot of you out there that look forward to that first cup of coffee in the morning. For the rest of us it is a tantalizing cup of Green Tea brewed to perfection.

Back to the bath/shower, our anticipation to our morning ceremony of taking a bath/shower is all important and the setting and the items are just as important. We have the water at just the right temperature and all the important items all in their proper place for our morning ritual of bathing. Our favorite soap that smells just perfect and the shampoo that enhances our hair so it looks, feels and smells just right. Then there is the essential oils that create our mind to wonder to places of bliss and comfort. Yes, this is all what the ritual of the bath does for the soap to the body.

Now the other part of this quotation is a little more abstract and a little harder to remember, because we can't see it and if we forget our morning spiritual practices we can't feel it right away either. Not until we finally realize our day just isn't going the way we want it to. Then we remember we forgot that ever important spiritual practice to do before we left the house and/or just got busy with things around the house.

It is always good to put laughter in your life as it is one of the things that feeds your soul, and when we put as much care, love and attention into laughter in our life as you we do to the soap and details to our bath/shower we will find the soul responds with joy. Our life and presents will over flow with love and joy, yes laughter is a vital part of our day and being.

Just for the fun of it practice several belly laughs through out the day and just notice how great your days become. Happy Laughing!!

Namaste, Darlene
