Meher Baba said
This is called the Avatar’s leela—game or plays. In that discourse, I have also spoken about other matters such as Christ's crucifixion. I am being crucified every second; but My merry, cheerful nature helps me bear the untold suffering
I am very fond of having fun, but when I become serious I remain serious. With Me, it is so from eternity. On gaining Realization, I gave up everything in eternity except My sense of humor.
Baba would ask individuals to tell amusing stories and Garrett Fort was pleasantly surprised at Baba’s keen sense of humor. Baba smilingly reminded him, “Divinity includes all that is beautiful and gracious. How then could you expect a Perfect Being to be devoid of a sense of humor?”
