When was the last time that you laughed until your face hurt, your eyes welled up with tears, and your stomach cramped?
If you cannot remember, then it is time for you to laugh hard again.
Yes, this blog is still about metaphysics, spirituality, consciousness, intuitive awareness, etc. You may be wondering how laughter and silliness tie in. I will explain.
When we spend so much time frowning and being “mature serious adults” that we lose sight of the bigger picture of Life. For example, in the Bible, it says to “Be childlike” and that this is “the way to the Kingdom” (Matthew 18:3). Later it is also mentioned that the “Kingdom of Heaven is Within” (Luke 17:21). Let’s put these two declarations together and it can say something similar to…
“Remember the child within, for this is the Center of Heaven in you”.
In other words, our Childlike Essence is the core of our Divine Nature.
Many cultures celebrate one’s transition from childhood into adulthood. It is believed to be a time of more responsibility, maturity, and concreteness instead of abstraction. Life becomes heavy and complex. People focus on the future and sustainability instead of whimsical moments filled with sparks and flurries of wonder. It appears as if adulthood means losing touch with the innate joy that is ever-present within us.
When we laugh and play, we are taking on the energy of our purest essence–Being Childlike. Children are one of the most powerful conduits for spiritual connection. They are humble beings, appreciating the simplest of things in life. They are pure and unfiltered. They are born loving everyone. They perceive their worlds from a mindset of infinite potential– as limitless. Children are even sensitive to energies and are some of the most natural and powerful healers on the planet.

Think carefully about this: Your world is a reflection of the essence you choose to embody. So why not allow yourself to embody unconditional love, vast possibilities, and sheer laughter?
Remember what it is like to be childlike: Everywhere you go holds an adventure. Everything you see is new in that moment. Everyone you meet is a friend.
How will you let the child within you express itself today?
