Today we ask that you laugh at yourself.

It is good in life never to take yourself too seriously.  In fact, one might say that it is always a rule that the moment you take yourself too seriously, you are in for a rude awakening.

For the world you live in has a great sense of humor.  If you take yourself too seriously, there is always a Harpo Marx waiting in the wings to show up and honk a horn at you and make you feel very silly indeed.

So today, be your own Harpo.  Honk a horn at yourself.  Especially notice if you are feeling very serious and intense.  If you are making some sort of very strong, serious argument.  That is the best time to wake up, and laugh at yourself.  If you don’t, someone else will.

Life is not a serious thing, truly.
