It does seem that there are times when an ego or defect can be comprehended through humor....
or is this a faint observation?
It seems that there are times when some one is able to point out an underlying trait that resides in the person that is bothersome, or that's held so dear and protected and is usually causing stress and pain, and this identification is obvious to the observer.. so they recognize it and call it out as something silly.
It is said that our divine mother is the only one who can annihilate our defects.. not to say that she still isn't here as a part of this process..
though i wonder about this humor application...
maybe it works for some and not everyone..?
personally i have experienced a release of identification by someone ultimately making fun of me, or pointing out something that i took so seriously but really was nothing to be so serious about..
i notice it does take a skill to do this to someone and a skill to receive the poking from someone..
i think what i'm asking is if there is a danger in this?
Many blessings, peace, love and happiness
