Laughter Heals All Wounds

It is not time that heals all wounds. Time is an illusion. Wounds (misalignments, imbalances, diseases) are healed by the creative energy of childlike laughter, by the hearty depth and warmth of practical humor and by the intense clarity of a sagacious wit. You "in the act" of directly experiencing our paradoxical universe (US and our Relationships) are the Divine Healer. The healing has both many forms and no form. It is the resonant energy of the physical body and the end point of that resonance, Satchitananda (Truth-Pure Mind-Bliss), the non-physical.

Resonance (L resonare fr. re + sonare to sound) Physics. Phenomena shown by a vibrating system which responds with maximum amplitude under the action of a harmonic force. This occurs when the frequency of the applied force is the same as the natural frequency of the vibrating body. v. To resound, praise, extol.

 

Laugh (AS hlehhan, hlyhhan, hliehhan . Imitative. Hee Hee Hee) To show mirth, satisfaction or derision by an expression of the face and an explosive or chuckling sound from the throat.

The object of laughter is to free up the energy and release it to create a more natural state in the environment of an individual. The state of peaceful equilibrium (contentment) following laughter recalls a mild recursion of the Absolute for an individual.

Wit (AS wiste , wissen to know) 1 . The power of conceiving, judging, or reasoning, intellectual power, practical good judgment, wisdom. 2 . Felicitous perception or expression of associations between ideas or words not ususally connected, such as to produce an amusing surprise. 3 . The power to evoke laughter by remarks showing swift perceptions, esp. of the incongruous, and verbal felicity.

Humor (L humor , moisture, fluid. AS hum Imitative. To give forth a low murmuring sound as from the blending of many voices.) 1 . One of the four fluids (blood, phlegm, choler--yellow bile and melancholy--black bile) determining a person's health and temperament. 2 . One's state of mind. 3. The mental faculty of discovering, expressing or appreciating the ludicrous or absurdly incongruous elements. 4. An ability to perceive the ludicrous, the comical and the absurd in human life or situations usually without bitterness and to express these so that others may see them.

Irony (L fr. eiron , a dissembler in speech) 1 . Simulation of ignorance chiefly in Socratic irony. 2. A sort of humor, ridicule or light sarcasm the intended implication of which is the opposite of the literal sense of the words. 3. A way of speaking or writing in which the meaning intended is contrary to that seemingly expressed.

Socratic Irony (Socrates, Grecian teacher 469-399 B.C.) Pretended ignorance or willingness to learn from others assumed for the sake of making their errors conspicuous

Sarcasm (Fr. sarcasme; L. sarcasmos; Gr. saecasmos < sarkazein, to tear flesh like dogs, speak bitterly < savx, sarkos, fleshlips in rage, fr. sarx , sarkos , flesh) 1 . A form of humor intended to wound feelings. 2. The use of bitter, caustic or stinging remarks expressing contempt.

Satire (L. satura poetic medley fr. satura dish filled with various fruits, a medley fr. satur full of food, sated) A type of writing that holds up vices or follies for ridicule and reprobation.

Repartee (Fr. repartir to reply, depart again) 1 . A clever witty retort. 2 . The power of answering quickly, pointedly and often wittily or humorously.
