"A man who knows the Divine has a sense of humor. If you meet someone who has no sense of humor, you can be certain that he is a pretender. Knowing the Divine brings sincerity, and all seriousness disappears. Knowing brings a playfulness; knowing brings a sense of humor, and a sense of humor is a must! Let this always be remembered." ~Osho
Have you ever noticed that your level of suffering is directly related to how serious your attitude about your life is? The more serious you are about things, the harder your life becomes. So why do you continue being serious? What’s the purpose of being serious about anything? Do you think you’ll reach enlightenment faster by being serious? Do you honestly believe you will attain your ego’s desires with more joy and effortless ease if you’re super serious about them?
Seriousness is a contracted controlling egoic energy which blocks you from being relaxed, happy and able to manifest your desires effortlessly. Your energy becomes like a tight fist, which makes it hard to let abundance in. Seriousness comes from an over controlling ego who is addicted to desire. It’s serious because it just doesn’t know how to manifest with joy and effortless ease. It has to control everything, have a tight agenda and makes sure every tiny step along the way is "successful". It’s forgotten that real success in life is being in love each moment along the way.
You can have a deep sincere life, having real honesty, integrity, and not get caught in the trap of seriousness at all. The first step begins with noticing the difference between when you are being serious and when you’re being sincere. You can feel this subtle difference in your chest and body. Your heart/chest will feel more lightness with sincerity, and feel heavy and controlled with seriousness. When you are serious you are coming from your ego/mind/head, and when you are being sincere you are coming from the your heart and soul.
When you look underneath the energy of seriousness you see that the ego is there, deeply attached to some future outcome. When you look under the energy of sincerity, it has an even deeper quality to it, one that is coming from love, being patient, kind, light and non-attached. Seriousness is very goal oriented, and ready to fight for the ego’s survival at any moment. Sincerity is more loving, conscious, and living beyond the material world on the spiritual path.
The first step to transcending the ego’s serious game is making the commitment to shifting your perspective. You must be willing to see each circumstance from a larger more calming viewpoint, that realizes you are an eternal being on an infinite journey. You must always be discovering your true infinite divine nature if you’re ever to be completely free from seriousness. This means that no matter what happens to you in life, whatever you decide to do or don’t do, everything is going to be ok! You must realize this deeply and intimately know that you are an eternal soul, an unbounded consciousness, whose real nature is as wild and free as pure star light.
It is a huge opportunity in this lifetime to stop being serious and start having fun! Start with realizing that you are not JUST this body, nor this mind, nor any of the thoughts that you’ll be thinking today. All these thoughts that you think are soooo important, are not going to be important at all 10 minutes before you die. So stop worrying about things, and just focus on knowing the spiritual being you truly are. Experience the divine sweet un-dying essence of what you are in each circumstance and situation you get in. You must live the experience of this truth if you’re truly going to seriously stop suffering completely. Otherwise, the needy demanding ego will just take you down, over and over again, down the road of being serious about everything and anything again and again. The ego is very serious about its job and it cannot give up until you realize the truth of who you are.
You know you cannot own, capture or collect anything of this material world. Everything is borrowed, even this body! Your soul is the only thing you bring with you on this infinite journey. If you could bring everything, where would it put it all? One day you must leave this body behind (unless you ascend) and the only thing you can take with you is your consciousness. How much time do you spend being conscious and how much time are you in your mind?
Being serious is a mind game, and it only narrows your experience of consciousness. It is impossible to achieve a deeper level of enlightenment, peace, joy, love or fulfillment in life by being serious about it. The only time you reach success is when you get soooo tired of being serious that you relax. Then the mind and heart begin to open, you expand your thinking and raise your vibration high enough to enter a state of appreciation, joy, and love. Raising your energy into love simply happens all by itself when you are realizing the truth of who you are….that you are an infinite eternal being, at one with the very God Source itself.
"Life is not serious. Life is love, life is laughter, life is dance. Laughter in its purest form is a dance of all your energies. Laughter is one of the most evolved phenomena in human life. No other animal can laugh, it is only man; it is only man who can laugh." ~Osho
