Lately there have been a lot of rather disturbing scenes on the news, some far too gruesome to mention. There is a quote by Friedrich Nietzsche which says
“And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you”
I do not care to gaze into the abyss or dwell on it and let it affect me and have no intention to post about such things here. Sure I will still mention some negative things, but merely to highlight the importance of world peace, things which although they may seem negative, I feel in some way have inspired me to action or to work for the cause of world peace.
Which brings me to the topic of this post, from a lot of posts it may be clear that music is a big part of my life. I love music, its like food or oxygen for the soul for me. But equally as important is laughter. Sure I have moments of seriousness or times when I may be sad or upset, but for the most part I don’t like to take life too seriously. I love to laugh and joke around and I like people that make me laugh.
When I look at all of the stuff that I watch on youtube, guess what they have all have in common? Yes thats right, they all make me laugh.
Some of the you tubers that I watch are Kidbehindacamera, Boogie2988, DoseofFousey, Alex Mandel Vlogs, Roman Atwood and vitalyzd. Nearly all of them are pranksters and they all make me laugh. I firmly believe that people gifted with the talent of making others laugh play an important role in making the world a better place.
When you see all those people on the news, spouting words of hate, doing unspeakable acts, do you ever notice how serious they are. Even certain world leaders, if they don’t laugh or can’t joke around, I just don’t seem to trust them that much. You don’t see laughing and joking around in a lot of the leaders of the biggest religions of the world, with the exception of the Dalai Lama, who I have seen laugh and joke. So to borrow a catchphrase from Roman Atwood, “Smile More”, laugh more, I firmly believe it is good for your inner peace, which in turn can only be good for World Peace. 🙂
Laughter for World Peace
About Peace 365
A Bit Of History
On the 19th of September 2005 we watched a program on Channel 4 titled ‘Peace One Day’. Afterwards while discussing the program with friends we had a good healthy laughter,
Good for them, one day of peace but what is wrong with the remaining 365 days’,
