Q: How does humor fit in with devotion? Are they not diverse?

A: Devotion is the dedication to Truth and Love by which humor becomes a handmaiden to assist in realizing the goal.  It diminishes the value of fallacy by contrasting truth with falsehood by putting them into juxtaposition.  The underlying intention of humor is actually quite serious and dedicated to liberation from illusion, fear, hatred, and guilt.  It unmasks the ego, thereby decreasing its dominance.  It leads away from the self to the Self.
