Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday, and not just because I love turkey and dressing. I’m grateful that we have set aside a day expressly to express gratitude, which is why I find it more heartfelt to send out Thanksgiving cards than Christmas or Hanukkah ones. So … consider this my holiday greeting:
If you’re on my mailing list, and have elected to receive my messages, thank you.
If you’ve been to one of our shows, or told anyone about them, thank you.
If you’ve bought a Swami product, or even thought about buying one, thank you.
If you’ve intentionally or unintentionally made someone laugh recently, thank you.
If you’ve hosted or promoted one of our shows, thank you.
If you’ve allowed the Swami and I to humorize your message, or if you were inspired to humorize your own, thank you.
If you participated in any teleclass I did – or even told someone about the teleclass (tell-a-teleclass) – thank you.
If you’ve put us up in the past year, or merely put up with us, thank you.
To my Facebook friends, friends of Facebook friends, Linked In associates, and anyone and everyone who receives this message … thank you!
In the nearly 18 months since Trudy and I have been “home free,” we have encountered so many amazingly graceful people and situations, and have had adventures too humorous to mention. Most recently, we were in Sedona, Arizona sponsored by Happy Oasis and Johnny Light (we wisely passed up an opportunity in a parallel universe to be sponsored by Grumpy Oasis and Johnny Heavy) and hosted by Michael Mirdad and the Unity Church of Sedona. We had a full house – overfull, as a matter of fact. When someone asked, “What if the fire marshal comes?” someone else answered, “Oh, don’t worry. We’ll find him a seat.” The evening culminated with Swami, Michael and several “swamettes” offering an updated version of a Beatles classic to commemorate the end of time as we know it: Now Here Man.
In short, and in long, Trudy and I are as overfilled with gratitude as that venue was last Friday night. We’re now back in California for the winter, except for the December 21st sojourn to Chichen Itza, where the Swami has offered to channel Ed Sullivan to introduce the Mayan elders, and Howard Cosell to do the pray-by-pray. (In spite of that, they still want me to come.)
Finally, to quote Sly Stone, “I want to thank you for letting me be myself again!” Thank you for supporting my unique work in the world, and I hope doing so inspires your unique work as well.
So … if there is any way we can incite insight and laughter into your life and world, please let us know how. Swami and I are available for performances, fun(d) raisers and appearances in California this winter or spring, and elsewhere too, if the event is large enough. And if you are anywhere in the Solar System reachable by Skype, Swami can appear as if by magic, remotely … and if you’d like to humorize your message or get specific cosmic comedy coaching, we stand at the ready to humor you as well. Jest send an email and let us know.
Finally, if you choose to give the gift of laughter this holiday season, we want to give you a gift as well. For any order of $16 or more between now and December 17th, we’ll send you FREE either my Zen Cohens of Harry Cohen Baba e-book, or the Wake Up Laughing e-book. At a time of evolutionary change where the “shift” is most definitely hitting the fan, we will need all the heart-opening laughter and mind-expanding comedy we can get, and I know these e-books can provide the levity to overcome whatever gravity you might encounter.

Thank you for being a co-heart on the path, may we continue to live into the world we know is possible, and may we laugh, laugh, laugh till the sacred cows come home.
