“Applaud my friends, the comedy is over…”
― [Supposedly] Beethoven [on his death bed]
The Wizard’s Reflection
The Liberating Embrace
To find the humor in a situation, we must take a moment to stand outside it. We can only touch and discern the spirit of the moment by sensing beyond the current situation into a greater context of perspective. Yet we must also be intimately in touch with the situation to perceive and effectively bring through the lightness present. To grasp at a laugh without standing apart from things is only to find cynicism. To attempt to relay the humor without being in resonance with the moment promises further polarization.
Learning to attune ourselves to empowering playfulness brings us healthy neutrality and a deep connection to things. Finding access to and harmonious expression of such a perspective is sometimes challenging, but when it occurs, it brings a potent mixture that disperses the tension and unifies the perspectives.
