Why Don’t You Laugh Much?

Four year old kids laugh 300 times a day — something that takes the average 40 year old over two months to accomplish

It struck me that we live in such a rational-dominant world, dating back to the Enlightenment, that we are only beginning to understand the immense power of our other capabilities — things like imagination and humor and social connection — all deeply relevant to unleashing our creative potential.

People obviously feel an immense thirst to express aspects of themselves that get repressed by modern systems — from the way we’re educated to the way modern capitalism systems can soul crush us.

We are our relationships and who we surround ourselves with — choose wisely!

Post-Enlightenment, we spend way too much time in our heads and in concepts, or mired in debilitating emotions or limiting beliefs like guilt or shame, rather than choosing the moment.
