What's one lesson you find super compelling?
I think laughter could also be a sign of emotional maturity - the observer at play if you will. They say that nervousness triggers the same fight or flight response in the human body as excitement does. I sometimes provide laughter and humour into life-threatening situations (I spent some time in Afghanistan) because I noticed that it counter-balanced all the negativity and fear. I'm sure there may have been some who didn't appreciate it, but I know from personal experience that it helped me to step back from the fear/nerves and observe the situation from varying viewpoints. I watched Pamela's Meyer's talk and it is excellent! I would like to highlight what she said at the beginning about lying however - that we receive a lie bc a part of us wants to believe it. It's the 'thoughts create things' taking responsibility for what you have created into your life mentality. If someone lies to you, it is a lesson you chose to learn at this particular moment and spotting them as the liar is not necessarily the lesson. And while I agree that there is a time and a place for laughter, I also know from experience that it is way more often than we think. I have a friend who's grandfather recently passed away and two days later we were in a yoga class together and she farted out loud during a pose and we were both in tears laughing as quietly as we could! We can grieve, be angry, be disappointed and a whole host of other emotions, but we can also find things to laugh about in this very moment. Perhaps the wide topic of laughter would make for a great Ted Talk someday!!! :)
