Living in Harmony

Do you think about living in harmony? What does harmony mean to you? Everything in the world that we know both within us and outside of us is perfectly balanced. “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction” as Issac Newton told us many years ago. Newton was talking about the physical world and his description is the law of motion but I believe this statement is goes much deeper then he ever intended.

I always look to nature. I think above everything else in my life my connection to nature has been the most consistent. I don’t claim to be a naturalist, I just love to observe the way nature works. The harmony in nature is very apparent if we allow it to be. Animals control their numbers depending on the resources available or they are culled to an acceptable level by predators. We use to have a great connection with the earth and the creatures that live on it. Unfortunately through the industrial age we have begun to lose that connection. The earth is in disarray but I believe it will self-correct and return to a state of harmony.

In our lives harmony is just as important as it is in nature. When we live outside of the flow of life, we don’t feel quite right. We become ill or depressed because the natural cycle of our life has been interrupted. Rediscovering the harmony in your life isn’t difficult, it only takes time and an open mind.

Each of us should strive to only take what we give. We should take time to listen to the natural flow of our life. We should discover the joy of living in perfect harmony. I believe we all have a life’s purpose and God/universe guides us along the path of life to lead us to this life’s purpose. Sometimes we take a wrong turn but I believe that God/universe gently tries to nudge us back on course. Sometimes we get so lost the and path back to our life’s purpose can take us our entire lifetime.

We become lost in our life because we’ve stopped listening and allow the EGO to take over. The EGO isn’t interested in harmony, it only wants more and more and more. It’s thirst can never be quenched. Allow the harmony to return to your life. If we each learn to live in harmony within ourselves the world will be a better place. Life is to short to be disconnected from your true source. Open your heart and listen to the natural flow of everything within and without yourself. Be in harmony and discover more joy in every moment.
