Ever laughed so hard that you cry tears or worse... pee your pants? I have!
Some years ago I was blessed to spend time with a master in India, Dolano, who told me a joke that has had me laughing (on the inside) ever since! She introduced me to the truth of who we are beyond this body/mind. It was the most mind blowing experience of my life.
She slapped (not literally) every false identity I had of myself until I could see, without doubt, the truth that lies at the source of all life. Love, peace, wisdom, power and freedom... the very essence of who I am.
I had spent years fixing my personality, healing my wounds and mending my broken heart, all in hope of receiving a big injection of love and wisdom. Little did I realise that these qualities are my true nature and the very act of seeking them was denying my own self.
Am I making sense? I hope not because this point is beyond understanding and can only be recognised from a place of total surrender to what IS true in each moment.... rather than what we WANT to be true!
So what is the joke? Well I'm glad you asked! I question people everyday and ask what they want and it is always more love, more peace, more wisdom, more freedom or more money (so they can have more 'freedom') and the funny part is, WE ARE LOVE! We are peace itself. We are freedom at the core of our being! It's like searching for the glasses that are on our head!
We often take life waaaaaaaaaay too seriously, when all that we need is right here, in each moment. We just need the maturity to stop looking for happiness and love outside of ourselves.
In the moments that my focus moves away from the deeper truth and towards the illusion of lack in my life, I love to hear the local kookaburra's who regularly remind me to laugh at life. Koookakakaakakaaaaaa! Children, nature and animals are a great living example of the true playfulness of this great mystery called life!
