Where do we go from here?

Having said all that I’ve said so far, what am  I doing?

Let me start with a story. A number of years ago I started doing Laughter Yoga. Laughter Yoga consists of a variety of silly activities designed to promote laughter in those who are participating.  Modern medicine has noted that laughing causes all sorts of positive things to happen to our bodies.  I think it’s an absolute hoot!  😝  First time I did it I was blissed out for the rest of the day.  Over time I started noticing something intriguing.  I would see people who were obviously enjoying themselves; who would tell you  in no uncertain terms afterwards how much they loved it. Then you never see them again.  Ever! At first I didn’t think much about it, but over time it became a pattern.

I was perplexed.  Why would someone avoid an experience that’s not only enjoyable but beneficial?  I pondered that for some time. I have since concluded this:  Once someone is removed by time and space from the experience thier serious, left-brained, adult frame of mind takes over.  I came to realize that unlike myself most people won’t allow themselves to be playful.  Even if it’s good for them.  Something to ponder.
