Smile Meditation



From Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert


...from the Balinese Medicine Man:  “He tells me there are many ways to God but most are too complicated for Westerners, so he will teach me an easy meditation.  Which goes, essentially, like this:  sit in silence and smile.  I love it.  He’s laughing even as he’s teaching it to me.  Sit and smile.  Perfect.”

“You study Yoga in India, Liss?” He asks.

“Yes, Ketut.”

“You can do Yoga”, he says, “but Yoga too hard”.  Here he contorts himself in a cramped lotus position and squinches up his face in a comical and constipated-looking effort.  Then he breaks free and laughs, asking, “Why they always look so serious in Yoga?  You make serious face like this, you scare away good energy.  To meditate, only you must smile.  Smile with face, smile with mind, and good energy will come to you and clean away dirty energy.  Even smile in your liver.  Practice tonight…  Not to hurry, not to try too hard.  Too serious, make you sick.  You can call in the good energy with a smile….”

Clown Around More



"Children expend considerable energy in 'clowning around'. They refuse to appreciate the gravity of our monumental concerns, while we forget that if we were to become more like children, our concerns might not be so monumental."

Humor on the side


Try getting angry at someone in a Boston accent. 

 It just doesn't work as the other person can't help but smirk and smile and eventually we're all laughing.  
When I get agitated or excited or tired my accent slips through, unnoticed by my usual filters that have been built up over many years, in an effort to speak "correctly".  But the slip-up can be useful humor relief when it's needed the most - in times of stress.

Remember to laugh when you get over stressed.  It's better for your body, for your challenges, for your healing.
