In the movie, “Pope Francis: A Man of His Word,” the Pope says that he prays daily to have a sense of humor. It is one of the greatest gifts from God. We send a lot of jokes and funny videos on WhatsApp and with other social media. Fortunate are those who can laugh, but a real sense of humor is deeper than that. It is making fun of yourself and laughing at your own innocence and ignorance as you evolve. Even joke with God. Make Him your friend. How can you give a dollar if you do not have one? For example, we feel lust, greed, anger etc. This can only come from God if He Himself has the same. So ask Him, “Why are you giving me your weaknesses? Then on top of that, You made heavenly bodies with curves. Some natural, and some enhanced in Columbia. You want me to overcome this and think only of You? Is it okay, Lord, if I am thinking of and appreciating your creations? Isn’t that indirectly thinking of the Creator?” This fun between the Lord and you can only be enjoyed if you have a true sense of humor. As you get older you can even enjoy making fun of your body parts. Making fun of others is easy. Real laughter comes when you understand how all this illusion you thought was real, affected you. – Satish Daryanani
