Use Your Humor Sense
Good Humor. It is on this mental state that the higher states of consciousness are developed. When you are experiencing Good Humor, you are usually doing something you like. You are focused on doing a simple pleasant task or a hobby you are good at.
This state is similar, I think, to the Flow State
, that they speak of in the field of Positive Psychology
. When you are in The Flow, you are functioning at your creative best. You can see, feel, hear, taste, and even smell acutely. It is a pleasant state of consciousness to be in The Flow, in the Good Humor dimension. Are you in the "altared state" of Good Humor

One quick and easy way to access the Good Humor state of consciousness is by telling or hearing and reading jokes of a whimsical nature. Sometimes called "corny" humor, jokes of this type of humor are easily appreciated by people of all ages.
