Laurie’s Positive Points:
Forgiveness of the self first:
Forgiveness is our first go to when we feel upset.
Forgiveness is that little dance we can do with God, which makes everything ok.
Forgiveness feels so much better, because it is the way we find a way to get to God’s Love, the moment we forget to laugh.
Forgetting to laugh may seem like a little too late.
It seems as if laughing is an impossibility, when we feel especially dreadful, but the Course reminds us that laughing is easy, when we get to that place of breathing deeply, and easing into that moment of lightness.
Forgetting to laugh is always what I need to pay attention to.
It seems like such a stretch that I could actually laugh, when I may experience the regular drama in the world as incredibly off-putting, it may seem absurd to even think about laughing.
But I am so grateful for God’s permission to get ourselves to an entirely different place.
If I feel like there is no way I can possibility come up with laughter, then I need to laugh especially. Don’t miss these opportunities!!
I always find that part of me that feels like it is impossible to look at things lightly.
I am grateful for this crazy suggestion.
If laughing about things seems so over the top hard to do, then I need to stop immediately and do it, because that is when I need it so much.
That inner despair can feel terrible, and it feels hard to prosper nonetheless.
It helps so much to make a point of the lightness of God, in laughing.
