Humour can be a balancing sensation.. laugher is quite a powerful healing force.
But if we're not careful... our joy for recieving the thoughts in the humour can cloud ours... essentially subcociously they get into our thoughts
because we are somehow convinced these thoughts are good for us, they are right for us.
What does it take for a really negative joke to finally be funny to you? Do you find that after so long you feel inclined to make one of those
Humour is based on emotional observation, I don't think it has a detailed picture, as I do not think that is the aim, but rather ro provoke an
emotional reponse... but again.. the information being fed could be total ignorance, but the joy we feel in recieving it could essentially make us
want these ingnorant thoughts... I kind of got distracted there, I wanted to explain that better... you see what i'm saying though..?
Comedy is a powerful tool, but it can be a dangerous one. Look at the television shows, the cartoons.. all of them push a message of mankind being
petty and negative.. and of course it is just a joke, an exageration, but over-time, we begin to believe it. And thats the dangerous part.
Turning hateful thoughts into a humorous expression, can make it a joyful thought.. you see the transformation?
How do you get a mob of people to turn racist, to start a war, to burn/throw a stone at someone they love? You make em laugh... pitch some
exagerations.. make it funny... watch the seeds of ignorance grow, and keep doing it until you have reduced the subject to an inferior state.
Over-time people might start to believe it. Have you been guilty of killing a bug, because you thought it wouldn't matter, that it's life was
totally insignifigant compared to yours? You see the pattern here... in time you can be turned into a monster if you really let it happen... when you
begin to see people as insects. ( You should love bugs!
In the movies the bad guys are always laughin'
I'm trying to think of something constructive with humour here.. please give me examples if you got any... I think all humour relates to
highlighting a flaw in one way or another... I guess in a way you can relieve stress of that flaw, but that might also encourage the flaw.
Someone else noodle on this one.
I'm not sure what life would be like without humour though.. perhaps its an interesting part of having ultimate free will.. its one of the
interesting factors that make earth life appealing maybe. It seems like chaos but it seems like more of a balance to me. Perhaps more insight on the
matter will come in time.
Hmm I could drone on with this one. Someone else feel free to chime in.
Just had to post this thought. There have been many more tonight, but i've been posting them in the chakra thread.. But I said a while ago on here
that I would contemplate humour, but I kept putting it out my mind, it just kind of came naturally today... and this is all distracting me from my
artwork! But thats ok... talking = throat chakra = expression = good art!
