new thread I posted.
I was listening to the Scott Mandelker Law of One series (where he goes through all 106 sessions, in sequence), and come across this little gem of a definition, that hadn't registered with me before.
Despite the Ra Material being dear to my heart for over ten years, and having subjected it to considerable analysis, there are still sentences (and phrases) that I'm consciously recognising for the first time.
Like things I've scanned over (and read), but it's like - 'how come I didn't see this before!".
Anyway, this was Ra's observation on one aspect of humor --
"This instrument is bearing up well due to replenished vital energies and a distortion towards a sense of proportion which your peoples call a sense of humor."
'a sense of proportion'
how key is that in the Earth Journey, when things can seem so dire and beyond repair?
the 'light touch' if you will.
(34.6 "Almost always these lessons include patience, tolerance, and the ability for the light touch")
Humor is not necessarily about making fun of things, or a sense of mockery. Humor - when done right - puts things into perspective - and helps us to laugh at our previous sense of over-seriousness. The good comedians can shed so much light on the pain and suffering that we go through together in this life. It's not about 'joke jokes' - it's about balance and understanding.
This Ra observation really crystallised this!
