57.1 "a sense of proportion"
I was listening to the Scott Mandelker Law of One series (where he goes through all 106 sessions, in sequence), and come across this little gem of a definition, that hadn't registered with me before.  

Despite the Ra Material being dear to my heart for over ten years, and having subjected it to considerable analysis, there are still sentences (and phrases) that I'm consciously recognising for the first time.

Like things I've scanned over (and read), but it's like - 'how come I didn't see this before!".

Anyway, this was Ra's observation on one aspect of humor --

"This instrument is bearing up well due to replenished vital energies and a distortion towards a sense of proportion which your peoples call a sense of humor."

'a sense of proportion'

how key is that in the Earth Journey, when things can seem so dire and beyond repair?

the 'light touch' if you will.

(34.6 "Almost always these lessons include patience, tolerance, and the ability for the light touch")

Humor is not necessarily about making fun of things, or a sense of mockery.  Humor - when done right - puts things into perspective - and helps us to laugh at our previous sense of over-seriousness.  The good comedians can shed so much light on the pain and suffering that we go through together in this life.  It's not about 'joke jokes' - it's about balance and understanding.

This Ra observation really crystallised this!

Namaste.

Bigger egoes would fine humor problematic.

This is a blessing reserved for the person who's not easily offended.. even by mockery. that takes a bit of spontaneous forgiving skills too I guess. (unlike when somebody who pretends to not care and be cool but is upset inside)

this afternoon something related happened to me.
At first I got angry then when it happened a second time I couldn't help but laugh. which was unexpected and turned the whole thing around.
Something that's usually handled negatively was handled with love I think.

Certainly.  Someone who is ENTIRELY CONVINCED of their perspective (and can't appreciate alternate perspectives on the same issue) is someone who can't learn (and hence - can't grow).

When you can bring the attitude of 'play' into things, life moves much more quickly Smile

That said - there are definitely some traumas (and pain) which people aren't yet ready to get close to.

And so the attitude is very GRAVE and SERIOUS.  It's heavy - and the energy gets dragged into some kind of vortex.

I definitely respect that pain  Angel

Wow! So true so true! And within this proportion our vital energies can grow?????? Is this what is to be implied? Thanks

Sometimes 1 ounce of humility helps the recipe for a type of mockery recipe. I stopped taking myself so seriously! I love it when I can laugh at myself. Sometimes I'm pretty silly. So are others. Humans are funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
