It is no exaggeration to say that humor is highly infectious-even more infectious than a cold. Actually, humor is not only infectious, it is contagious. The sound of a hearty roaring laughter automatically makes us smile even when we have no clue what the person might be laughing at. Laughter has a way of binding us together-sharing in each other’s happiness. Health-wise, laughter has physiological and psychological health outcomes. For example, it fortifies our immune system. It reduces stress levels and pain. It also decreases inter-personal and intra-personal conflict. Interventional scientific studies affirm the preventive and therapeutic properties of spontaneous laughter.

Tao Te Ching 36
Should you want to contain something, you must first let it expand. . ..Should you want to weaken something, you must first let it grow strong. . Should you want to take something, you must first allow it to be given. . The lesson here is called the wisdom of obscurity. .. The obscure outlasts the obvious. . The soft overcomes the hard. . The slow overcomes the fast. . Let your workings remain a mystery. . Just allow people to see the results.
NOTE: The Tao Te Ching is not a religious study. Unlike Taoism, Zen is philosophical. However, Zen philosophies were greatly influenced by Taoists. Zen is the Chinese Taoist philosophy with its central image of “yin and yang” which are Tao.
