TAKING FUN SERIOUSLY
Fun has a bad rap, because many people think of it as something trivial, a matter of video arcades and bowling alleys. Fun is definitely neglected as a valid path of enlightenment. Many people think that seriousness and suffering are the hallmarks of psychological and spiritual growth. In fact, I believe that the opposite is true. No path of conscious living is of value unless you have more high-quality fun as a result of it. I have had the pleasure of being around many great teachers of conscious living, both famous and obscure, and almost all of them were funny. Some were so off-the-scale wildly funny, in fact, that the people who couldn’t handle their humor fled in dismay.
