Laugh with us: God’s Humour

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn’t work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness, Emo Philips
The story goes that a public sinner was excommunicated and forbidden entry to the church. He took his woes to God. ‘They won’t let me in, Lord, because I am a sinner.’ -‘What are you complaining about?’ said God. ‘They won’t let Me in either.’ , Brennan Manning.
A man goes to a church with a large, very disproportionate knife which would instantly kill anyone it hit.
The priest asks:
– How could you bring this weapon to the Lord’s House?
– I always take it with me just in case someone dares to contradict me. I hate people who disagree with me on literally anything. I am an atheist, are you a Christian?
– No, of course not and honestly, I wouldn’t advise it to you either.
Atheism is a non-prophet organization. I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older; then it dawned on me – they’re cramming for their final exam, George Carlin
A man was beaten up by robbers on the road. He lay on the side of the road, half dead.
A humanist came along, saw him and passed by on the other side.
A Samaritan came by and also crossed to the other side.
Finally, a modern Christian came along, looked at the man and said: “Whoever did this to you needs help”.
What's black and white, black and white and black and white?

Life is too serious to be taken seriously

Through humour, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. Once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it, Bill Cosby.

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, Monty Python.

Life is not only about work, clients, or academic results. Our life is rapidly changing in all aspects in such a manner that some of us may not be ready for what is coming. Cultivate a good sense of humor, laugh at yourself and your circumstances because what you think is clear and certain today, may well not be tomorrow. It is not about denying our problems or responsibilities, but learning to cope with them in a healthier way.

“Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it, and then move on,” Bob Newhart. We all get our share of tragedies, but laughter allows us to accept that there are many things we cannot change, as well as, connecting with loved ones, temporarily stepping outside our space and time, putting things into perspective, making a stand about an issue, dealing with it, and finally, moving on.

It helps us to see the big picture, reduce our fears, cope better with problems and worries, and improve our overall attitude towards them. In short, it provides us with many resources for overcoming them or, at least, coping with and accepting them.

As Elbert Hubbard said and I quote: “Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.” The idea is to stop being serious all the time and to face your problems and tragedies with good humor. Do not get overwhelmed or confused by obstacles along the way, by your circumstances, by how far away your goals are. It is about how to make wiser, responsible, more pleasant and desirable lifestyle choices that encourage a positive outlook on life, constant and hard work, a good spirit, resilience, and sacrifice despite obstacles and adversities.

Laughter improves our health, for example, it relieves emotional stress and pain: “Laughter is a tranquilizer with no side effects,” Arnold H. Glasgow; “Each time a man laughs, he adds a couple of days to his life,” Curzio Malaparte.
It encourages positive thoughts and feelings, helps increase mental satisfaction by making it easier for people to cope with difficult situations, it generates happiness and improves relationships with relatives, colleagues, friends, and partners, and therefore, increases our chances of success.

Life is too serious to be taken seriously

Humour is very important for a healthy lifestyle, and yet, it is often neglected. Let me show you how to get started.

Please remember, don’t ever let a day go by without putting a smile on your face!

A day without laughter is a day wasted, Charlie Chaplin.
