Becoming foolish is fun because of the freedom it gives you from social expectations and self-cherishing. Also from competing, stressing, striving and putting on a good face. Becoming foolish is not necessarily acting the fool. It is a relaxing of your social conditioning, the freedom to take a more open and flexible view of the world. A birthing of a sense of humour about it all because you know that nothing in life is permanent. That happiness is transitory, as is suffering and eventually all comes to an end. Becoming foolish allows you to unattach your self from all that is supposedly so important, it allows you to glimpse the big picture.
