The One Who Is Laughing

When there is ignorance of the law of cause and effect, there is laughter instead of mercy and love, ridicule instead of sympathy and compassion. When there is ignorance of the power of thoughts, there are ill wishes for others. To have pure wishes for all is divine, and to have hope for one that seems to be a hopeless case is a good gift of charity. Sometimes thoughts and feelings are expressed in laughter. But laughter, like thoughts can have positive or negative influences and effects. To laugh at the misfortune of others is cruel but the one most affected by the laughter is the one that is closest to it, i.e one who is laughing.
