Laughter Is the Juice of Life

Laughter is a powerful tool. It has been given as a gift only to humans. No one has heard plants or animals laugh at any time. When we laugh we come back to our true self.

Laughter is infectious and when someone sees you laugh they are also motivated to laugh, and when they laugh their stress level is reduced, and you have given them a gift of wellbeing in their life.

Laughter provides great physical and emotional release. Laughter is a higher state of consciousness and when one is able to hold that state of consciousness, the person becomes lighter, and can vibrate in a place of absolute well being.

The mind stories disappear when there is laughter. Life becomes magical and full of fun when we choose to hold the vibration of laughter. Laughter takes us to a state of egoless innocence and to a non-judgmental attitude. When we laugh, we become like little children as suddenly the mind disappears. In reality, laughter brings solutions to all kinds of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual problems.

Medical research has revealed that laughter reduces the level of stress hormones and increases the level of health enhancing hormones like endorphins and neurotransmitters. Laughter also increases the number of antibody producing cells which promotes a strong immune system thereby bringing amazing healing and well-being in the physical body.

A good belly laugh works our abs, shoulders, and makes our muscles more relaxed. It is a good work out for the heart muscles also.
Many people try to do meditation and have failed because it sounds to be very serious, but when laughter is tried as a meditation, there will be complete benefit for body, mind and soul.

Practicing laughter for no reason is a powerful meditation. Great teachers like the Zen Master Hotei, who is called as the Laughing Buddha, taught the simple technique of enlightenment through laughter.

According to Hotei:

“Laughter is our birthright…”

…and no matter what happens in our life, we must come back to laughter. In many Zen monasteries the monks begin their day with laughter and end their day with laughter.

By choosing laughter, we bring Heaven into our lives and into this Planet.

Laughing at somebody is not good, laughing for a reason is intellectual and from the mind, but laughing without a reason is spiritual.

The Indian mystic Bagwan Shree Rajneesh also known as OSHO, devised a meditation out of laughter. It is very easy and delightful to do. It is a very powerful meditation:

Laughter Meditation

Laugh for no 25_142PNreason at all.

Go in and find your own laughter inside.

Allow the laughter to bubble up from the inside.

Create a giggle in the very guts of your being, as if your whole body is giggling, laughing.

Start swaying with that laughter; let it spread from the belly to the whole of your body. Go crazily into it.

For thirty minutes, do the laughing. If it comes uproariously, loudly, allow it. If it comes silently, then sometimes silently, simply laugh for thirty minutes every day.

See your life transform into joy and excitement.

  1. Ah laughter! I love to laugh <3 Wonderful article, dear Premlatha, making bubbles of laughter rise within. It's so much fun creating laughter and we so often forget this simple tool to be in joy. Thank you for this reminder. Much love, Jasmine <3

  2. Thank you for this reminder dear Premlatha. Sometimes we take ourselves and for that matter, everything, far too seriously. And then we can make it all too heavy. And then it’s easy for us to become ‘mental.’ The heart is light. The heart is joyful. ‘ The heart is expansive. Anything else is an illusion. So much love for you dearest sister! Big hug! Orchid <3
