Words of Wisdom: Laughter

By Ely North, published on May 5, 2013

“Laughter is the language of the soul.” ~Pablo Neruda

The second greatest way to bond with another person is to laugh together. (The greatest way, of course, is to get drunk together – which usually leads to laughter, anyway.) When we laugh together, our souls are recognizing a kindred spirit, communicating an unspoken shared understanding.

Laughter is pure, joyous, playful, spontaneous, and free – as the soul, at its best, should be. Laughter is an expression of the soul delighting in its existence.

As a tribute to the power of laughter, I wrote a poem dedicated... (more)

Why are so Many Believers so Dour?

By melanie jean juneau, published on Apr 21, 2013

...in fact the joy of the Lord is repeated hundreds of times in the Bible.

It is interesting to note that truly holy people usually have a marvelous sense of humour. When my husband first visited a Trappist monastery about 30 years ago, it was the sound of loud, infectious, belly laughter echoing throughout the Abby that stuck with him

Thomas Merton,(an American Trappist Monk) was once asked,

Merton smiled,

“Well it is very difficult to tell but holiness is... (more)

A Hiding Place

By D. Sager, published on Feb 24, 2012

...sheltered, in the arms of my Father. When I am spending time with Him, He protects me and holds me, comforting me in my fears. It is there that the feeling of safety is irrelevant, for at that moment I am truly safe. Who can touch me when His strong arms wrap my soul in warmth and his unending love comforts my mind, ablaze with conspiracies? There is a place of safety, that if I will stay, will bring the feelings of the same. There is a place that no man, no terror, can prevail. My discipline is to stay there and laugh at the derision of men.

Piggly Wiggly

By Frank - icare2be, published on Dec 6, 2010

Piggly Wiggly Piggly Wiggly a wallowing in the mud. Roll around, roll around. Piggly Wiggly a wallowing we will go. Stomp a foot here. Stomp a foot there. Piggly Wiggly just a wallowing all day long. Bury my nose ever so deep. Piggly Wiggly wallowing in the mud. Toss my head way up in the air. Piggly Wiggly a wallowing we will go. Throw the mud here. Throw the mud there. Piggly Wiggly a wallowing all day long. Take a nap now. Take a nap later. Piggly Wiggly a wallowing in the mud. Eat a little, just a bite. Chomp! Chomp! Piggly Wiggly a wallowing we will... (more)

I Am But a Man

By Frank - icare2be, published on Dec 5, 2010

I am but a man.Just a man, human still.I live and breathe.I do good and bad.Sometimes one more, Than the other.

For after all I am, but a man.On the average, not the mean.The good I do out weighs the bad,But then there are those days.

For after all I am, but a man.There are those days, glorious days.Or so I have been told.Of grand forgiveness and absolution.

For after all I am but a man.

This was writen reflecting on a particularly bad day I had. It was putting Humty Dumpty back together again. I was imperfect, but not all bad. Not unforgiveable, just imperfect.... (more)
