070 Laughing all the way!

Laughter is an outer expression of an internal joyful heart, even when we don’t know the source of that joy. With the gift of faith in our Father’s grace we can know the Source. Sometimes a joyful heart just springs up when we feel good. Sharing the Program with others, knowing we can make a good difference makes us feel good. A.A. has fostered the ability to laugh at myself, not as a put down but a loving lift. Feelings are our chemistry and can create a healthy environment or a sick one. The A.A. way of life offers us a choice. Laughter not only produces pleasant feelings and images, but also alters our body chemistry. Our feelings are most often the result of our beliefs, our personal "reality"; it is safe to say beliefs are our biology. A.A. has taught me to let go of the useless, harmful past and embrace the Presence in the presence. Laughter like love is a healing power touching everyone-thing into wholeness, maybe laughter is love. I am the only one who can keep me bound to the joyless past. I choose out of enlightened self-interest to forgive all, even myself. Come let us love one another, laughing along the way. "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." (John 13:35) Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
