What I mean is, if you're used to speak using sarcasm, irony and causticity as a way of making your speech humorous for certain people (people who shares your sense of humour of course) is this going to spoil your Feeling-Good vibrational work, or something?
Abraham says we should not crticize people. I stopped doing that, but it's difficult to get rid of your way of being humorous.
Is this a problem or is it just fine?

As long as it is done in a spirit of humor and comraderie, I don't see anything wrong with it. Humor of this type can actually improve your relationships with others. To do this well, you have to know the people you are interacting with, so that you know what they consider funny.
It helps to keep the larger perspective in mind, as occasional well-placed humor is good for the soul, but taken to an extreme it can foster negativity.

I have heard that sarcasm is hatred disguised as humor. Something to think about.

It becomes problamatic if you hurt another's feelings, which you'll know right away as it leaves a bitter aftertaste, sort of a hollow feeling. I would shift the irony/sarcasm toward the situation itself rather than individuals.
Thank you, namaste

Irony,causticity and sarcasm espress always a disagreement with something.
Irony could be humorous, but not ever (pending to context). Also, irony can be associated with good intention, showing in the same time the desire to make remarkable the disagreement.
Causticity and sarcasm are always issued from a disagreement coupled with resentments - anger, spite, contempt - being a masked form of verbal aggressiveness and can hurt the listener(s), or sadness, bitterness of speaker, resulting from a hurting situation, and inducing compassion or just sadness to listener(s). In all situations, causticity and sarcasm are not humorous, nor amusing or funny, springing from and determining negative feelings.
From the viewpoint of LOA, causticity and sarcasm don't get usefulness to nobody: nor to speaker, neither to listener(s).
I think is better to avoid causticity and sarcasm.

It's my understanding that Law of Attraction is LITERAL & even what you say jokingly has manifestation energy & validity, especially if feeling is associated.
The subconscious doesn't know the difference between a joke, imagination or what's perceived as "reality".

It's not humor unless both people laugh. I personally would shift my humor to be more general, so no one took is the wrong way. Just my opinion.

Humour should not come at the expense of anyone else. So if you have to put someone down to get a laugh that is not good. There is sufficient positive experiences that can get a good laugh and I believe that we should focus on those. As they say the spoken word is powerful so we should be careful of what we say.
