Watch this skype laughter chain. Beware, you could end up being the last ring in the chain of laughter…
Some more reminders of what a laugh is:
*A smile starts on the lips,
A grin spreads to the eyes,
A chuckle comes from the belly
But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul,
Overflows, and bubbles all around.
HUMANITY has unquestionably one really effective weapon—LAUGHTER.
Power, money, persuasion, supplication, persecution—these can lift at a colossal humbug—push it a little—weaken it a little, century by century; but only laughter can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.
~ Mark Twain
The old man laughed loud and joyously, shook up the details of his anatomy from head to foot,
and ended by saying that such a laugh was money in a man’s pocket,
because it cut down the doctor’s bills like everything.
~ “Tom Sawyer” by Mark Twain
What is laughter?
-It is a form of internal jogging.
-It moves internal organs around.
-It is cheap medicine and enhances respiration.
-It ignites a fire within the pit of the belly.
-It is one mighty scarce thing that heals all hurts.
-It is a spark that ignites and awakens one’s being.
-It is the sun that drives winter from the human face.
-It is God’s hand on the shoulder of a troubled world.
Everyone is so afraid of death, but the real sufis just laugh: nothing tyrannizes their hearts. What strikes the oyster shell does not damage the pearl.” — Mevlana Rumi
