We get so worried, so fearful, so anxious about tomorrow, and all for no reason. We can be lost in the most oppresive emotions, and yet a milimeter
away it seems, it is so easy, Heaven. Heaven is right there before us, so close. A thought away. A belief that connects man to his God.
To emphasize the importance of belief, in the bible, in deuteronomy 8:3, it says "He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with
manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of
the LORD.". The Hebrew word for mannah is Man. The two letters Mem Nun are the principal letters in the word eMuNah - faith. In other words, man
lives according to his belief. Ultimately, man lives on the word of God alone.
It is amazingly funny that we make things so painful for ourselves. Its not nice to say that to someone who is suffering, but i guess by yourself you
can understand and percieve the energetic humor in it. Sufferring has no inherent reality. Its like the clouds of the sky; there one day and gone
another. But the sun - the light - is always there.
I notice that many spiritual traditions teach this truth. Buddhism does (Buddah is traditionally represented as laughing) and also Judaism, suprising
as that may be, teaches this aswell.
The Jewish Rabbis say that in the messianic era, Isaac will be the patriarch most invoked as their forefather.. In the book of Genesis, both Abraham
and Jacob are treated much more abundantly than Isaac is. Isaac has a few narratives and they are all very vague. Isaac in Hebrew, Yitchak, means,
"he will laugh".
Just today for instance i was walking my dog through the park. I let her off her leash to let her walk around. Suddenly i see that shes going off on
her own into the main park area where kids are playing and parents talking. Just watching her so casually walk by one human to another, sniffing one
and going off to sniff another. Finally she reaches another dog and they both sniff each other.. I couldnt help but laugh at this. This dog walking
around humans seeming almost dignified and respected, and watching these humans acknowledge my dog as another civilized creature. It was just so
hilarious to see. It was incredibly cute.
Humor is transcendence of opposites. Humor occurs when two contrasting things unite.. Watching a dog - a clownish animal - walking by a human being
with his own abstract and sophistacated perception of things, and seeing the two of them acting towards each other with love; dogs feeling loved and
so walk about us with a natural confidence, and us, appreciating the beauty of this fact, it brings together two different realities and makes a light
