God, what would you have me say and do today?

God, what would you have me say and do today?
Laugh.
Speak in light tones.
Do not be so serious.
Not today.
Play with me.
What game?
Hide and seek.
Find me in all my hidden places.
Seek me everywhere;
see me hiding in plain sight.
And laugh with me.
Today, life is fun,
and so are you.
Breathe
deeply and easily.
Let heaviness go.
Today,
let the lightness of your being
shine with joy for all to see.
Will you do this today?
Evening Reflection
I was not in a laughing mood today. This guidance was especially challenging and I forgot to carry it with me on my morning errands, which included visits to my accountant, the car mechanic, and an office supply store.
Laugh? Hardly.
After I got home and collected my guidance, I ventured to the post office. The post office and laughing don’t traditionally go together, but I found myself finding places in conversation where I could infuse some humor and make the interaction lighter and more jovial.
And it worked. I made people laugh. Well, some. When we can bring lightness of being to a post office, a copy place, and a car mechanic, we are doing good work in the world!
While eating dinner, a family member read from a paper on Hamlet. “Hamlet lost his ability to laugh. He lost his mirth and doesn’t know why.” This coincidence affirmed that the message of laughing had been a perfect one for the day.
How did you do?
