Laughter

 
If it is true that, as Teilhard de Chardin wrote, “Joy is the most infallible sign of the presence of God” and since the outward manifestation of joy can be deep laughter just as easily as deep tears, then laughter must be a most beloved emotion. To see the humor in a situation and share a good laugh over it is to bond without words. Humor, laughter, joy … part of our authentic human selves, part of our authentic progressive spiritual experience.
