Lose yourself in Laughter

with Osho Rajneesh 
                                                      
      Osho                                          

I enjoy reading Osho. I enjoy his brilliant, fun, open mind. He was one of the most original thinker in India. He had an amazing gift for words, whether in speech or writing. I will go beyond his love to material things such as his Rolls Royce and Swiss watches. I hope he enjoyed them:) I will share some of his thoughts as a philosopher who trod a lonely path with laughter and open mind.

'Practice this every morning upon awakening, it will change your whole day. If you wake up laughing you will soon begin to feel how absurd life is. Nothing is serious; even your disappointments are laughable, even your pain is laughable, even you are laughable. When you wake up in the morning, before opening your eyes stretch like cat. Stretch every part of your body. Enjoy the stretching; enjoy the feeling of your body becoming awake, alive. After three of four minutes of stretching, with your eyes still closed, laugh. For five minutes, just laugh. At first you will be doing it, but soon the very sound of your attempt to laugh will cause a very genuine laughter. Lose yourself in Laugher.

If you can decide that every year, for one hour, at a certain time, the whole world will laugh, I think it will help to dispel darkness, violence, stupidities... Just the touch of Laughter can make something worth living, something to be grateful for.

Laughter is prayer. If you can laugh you have learnt how to pray. Don't be serious. A serious person can never be religious... A person who can laugh absolutely, who sees the whole ridiculousness and the whole game of life, become enlightened in the laughter.

One should go on laughing the whole of one's life. I am not saying don't weep. In fact, if you can not laugh, you can not weep. They go together, they are part of one phenomenon of being true and authentic.

Laughter brings strength. Now even medical science says that laughter is one of the most deep-going medicines nature has provide to man.

Seriousness is illness. Spirituality is laughter, is joy, is fun.

These are thee 'three Ls' of my philosophy: life, love, laughter. Life is only a seed, love is a flower, laughter is a fragrant. Just to be born is not enough, one has to learn the art of living, that is the A of meditation. Then one has to learn the art of loving; that is B of meditation. And then one has to learn the art of laughing; that is the C of meditation. A meditation has only three letters: A, B, C.'

So let's have a good and fun day!

With Love, Peace & Light
