Our card for today, Monday, May 9th, is taken from The Soul’s Journey Lesson Cards – Humor – “I choose to focus on the lighter side of life.”
Here we see a photo of the laughing Buddha representing humor. When I first looked at this card I was reminded of seeing an image of Jesus laughing when I was a teenager. It was such an uplifting depiction of Jesus and you wanted to laugh just looking at it because you could see the joy in his eyes. What this tells us is that life was never meant to be a struggle although it would seem otherwise to most of us. Life was meant to be joyful but somewhere along the way we lost sight of that. So this card is asking us to find the joy in life again, no matter what has happened to us, or is happening right now, that would seem anything but joyful. Spend time in nature, that’s the cure for most of what ails us today. Spend time with young children or pets, and you will find that even when they don’t have much, they can always find a way to have fun and enjoy life.
We have gotten so caught up in “living” as this world sees it, working long hours to earn money to buy things we often don’t even need. I’m as guilty as the next person in this, because I see the new smart phones and tablets and I want one, or perhaps a new car or a nicer house, but then I think about the contracts I will have to agree to and then spend the next however many years paying for it. So I’m trying to live a little more simply because I have learned the hard way that the newest shiny object doesn’t bring happiness, or if it does, the novelty wears off far too quickly and long before the contract is up. It’s time we learned what is really important in life and what brings true happiness and joy, and then do more of that. What calls to your soul, what brings you joy, what ignites your passion? Whatever that is for each of us is what we are meant to be doing more of. It is the only way to ease the struggle and stress of our day to day lives. Find a reason to laugh because we all know laughter is good for the soul.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
