The first Sunday of May every year, is celebrated as World Laughter Day and it was Dr. Madan Kataria from India, (also addressed as the ‘Guru of Giggling’ by London Times) who founded this Yoga movement for self healing. The world today appears to be filled with hate ideologies, loneliness syndrome and an epidemic of sadness, and if there needs to be a change to be brought into this scenario, laughter is definitely a positive and powerful emotion which has all that an individual needs for self transformation; internal as well as external. What is most amazing in this treatment is that it is the most peaceful and positive way to bring about a modification. Research has proved that a person’s facial expressions have an effect on his emotions and therefore even if one is deeply destroyed from within, an artificially laughing face is likely to gradually bring about a change. No harm therefore in trying out this most inexpensive method to move towards global consciousness of brotherhood and harmony.
All experiences in life come with a package of lessons to be learnt from. It’s a pleasure when we come across gentle and loving people who make life like a holiday sailing on smooth waters; but if we come across storms of strange happenings or tsunamis of relationships then we feel hurt, betrayed and broken but then the sail of forgiveness helps us cross the ocean to safer lands.
An eye for an eye will make the world blind; however not everyone can abide by this generous philosophy of forgiveness. But what if we do encounter someone who wishes to follow this principle of peace? Do we have any right to barge into their private world of emotions and stop their personal course of healing?
