Spirituality from Daily Word: “Laughter” (Espiritualidad de la Palabra Diaria: “Risa”)



With joy comes hope and an attitude of abundance.

A giggle, a chuckle, a full belly chortle—all uplift the spirits. Even if for a moment, laughter can lift my mind and heart from a challenge. I experience a temporary reprieve. When my thoughts are no longer focused on perceived limitations, joy rushes in.

Laughter is a medicine that transforms my thoughts from human limitation to spiritual wholeness. I am uplifted as I play dress up with a child, watch a favorite comedy, visit with friends, or observe squirrels scampering in the park.

As my heart opens, I remember and feel the presence of Spirit right where I am. I claim my spiritual wholeness in all things. The more I laugh, the better I feel. With joy comes hope and an attitude of abundance.

He will yet fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouts of joy.—Job 8:21

El gozo fomenta la esperanza y una actitud de abundancia.

Reírse eleva el espíritu. La risa puede apartar mi mente y corazón de un reto aunque sea por un momento. Cuando mis pensamientos ya no están enfocados en las limitaciones percibidas, el gozo me llena.

La risa es una medicina que dirige mis pensamientos de las limitaciones humanas a la plenitud espiritual. Soy elevado a medida que juego con un niño, veo mi programa cómico favorito, converso con amigos y observo a las ardillas correteando por el parque.

A medida que mi corazón se abre, recuerdo y siento la presencia del Espíritu aquí mismo donde estoy. Reclamo mi plenitud espiritual en todas las cosas. Mientras más me río, mejor me siento. Con el gozo vienen la esperanza y una actitud de abundancia.

Así que él volverá a hacerte reír, y en tus labios pondrá una radiante sonrisa.—Job 8:21
