This question reminded me of a passage in Jon Kabat-Zinn's book, "Wherever you go, there you are". He quotes a student, who told him:
"When I was a Buddhist, it drove my parents and friends crazy, but when I am a Buddha, nobody is upset at all."
Can we really do it? Can we laugh at our convictions, our past, our anger when things don't go as we planned? I'll admire someone who laughs at himself realizing how absurd is to think that the world will work in the way one's ego wants, because in this moments we usually don't laugh, we weep.
