Seeing Humor in our PredicamentPosted September 24, 2014“If it were not laughed at, it would not be sufficient to be Tao.” – Lao Tzu, Tao Te ChingDid you ever have a bad day? Everything seems to go wrong and you are completely lost in anger, frustration and self-pity. It gets worse and worse, until the final moment when, say, you have just missed the last bus.

At that moment you uplevel your predicament, you see the cosmic joke in your own suffering.
