“Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.’ Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.” – George Herbe

One Useful Tool for True Change
We left off last time discussing how true desired change (peace) comes from within, and how we ought not attempt to seek it outside of ourselves. What is meant by the saying, “Peace comes from within, do not seek it without” is that we are literally wasting our time by attempting to get the outside world to adapt and conform to us, but if we want our lives to be better, we want to work where we have absolute control and there is no place other than within ourselves where we truly do.
The Law of Attraction responds to our emotional state of being within, who we are. Yes, action is required in order to function, but right and true action is intelligently directed. The physical force of our own bodies is of far less consequence than we might think, unless that’s the medium we choose to express what’s found within.
So what are the tools we refer to? One of the most powerful tools we own is laughter. Yes, we mean that. If we can find humor in a situation that would otherwise frustrate, anger, or even sadden us, we then have the ability to mutate what would be a negative experience into a positive one. Haven’t you ever been to a funeral and found yourself afterward with a group of friends laughing about something the deceased person did? The funeral isn’t for the person who died as much as it’s for those loved ones attempting to feel better after acknowledging their loss. We naturally gravitate to humor because it really does help us deal with the most difficult of circumstances.
Laughter and inner comic relief would probably be a great tool to use in order to change our emotions in far less serious situations, but since, for many people, it’s a tool of last resort; when we are defeated- we don’t reach for it as often as we could. When’s the last time you employed humor when a boss or a customer yelled at you, or when you were alone and someone cut you off in traffic? These things are golden opportunities for us.
Observing an outside event is an internal process, defining what we see is what we do in order to “experience” anything. We alone are the ones who get to experience what the “qualia” of anything means to us. We also have the ability to alter every experience into one that supports and enhances our inner state of mind, our state of being, our Soul. In order to do that we must set about to get that internal work done. Use humor, use laughter, enjoy life more by bringing the magical power of disarming negative circumstances, people, and events and through the use of a little comic relief we can create internal peace regardless of what happens.
Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves
“How can I begin transforming my negative experiences by sharpening my sense of humor?”
