Out of curiosity I looked up the word ‘harmony’ in the dictionary, Wikipedia, and researched on-line to see if other people wrote articles about ’harmony’; and I’m not talking about singing. Basically, all I found was: nothing. Sad but true, ‘harmony’ - a mental state of being - isn’t discussed very much in our society, even though it is identical to ‘happiness’, which all mankind strive for.
‘Harmony is the principle underlying all life’
Think about this statement. The Universe is working
perfectly and harmoniously at all times. The planets are moving flawlessly, the plant life grows and flourishes without our help, babies are born every second, and life in general keeps flowing per the great plan of Universal Consciousness.
When left alone and undisturbed, life lives and progresses picture-perfect.
The quote, however, also means that any non-harmonious thought is without merit. Webster-Merriam describes the word harmony as ‘internal calm: tranquility’, which unfortunately was the only description that can be used to explain the mental sense of the word ‘harmony’. All other examples were related to music or art. Are we really so absorbed with our material sense of things that we haven’t even thought about the true meaning of simple, yet powerful, words like ‘harmony’?
What are harmonious thoughts?
Ease, calm, comfort, in sync with nature, in tune with love, pleasant visions, inspiration, relaxed, and a healthy outlook in life to name a few. Harmony does not allow any disturbance whatsoever. It is ‘internal calm’, a genuine knowing that all is good, that you are indestructible, and that you are in charge of your life. ‘You are the arbiter of your own faith’, as declared by many of the metaphysical writers around the early 1900’s.
Are you setting time aside for your daily thought exercises?
I hear most people say ‘I’m just too busy with my daily work, or chores’, ‘I just don’t have the energy at the end of the day’ and so on. They move on with the same routine, rather taking the unpleasant experiences from their in-harmonious thinking and acting.
They don’t want to think about ‘working’ on their own self-development and growth. It feels like just another ‘thing to do’. Have you any idea on how much better your life would be if you would just spend 15 minutes a day to contemplate the Truths of life?
How does in-harmony affect your body?
This disturbed mindset influences your overall health in many ways. Hurry, worry, contribute to tenseness in the neck areas, stomach troubles, and of course many accidents happen while rushing, or being absorbed in your own nervous energy.
As someone who has observed mental healing for many, many years, I can attest to the fact, that the bone structure of the body represents this mental ‘harmony’. When you experience aching bones, or even worse broken bones, you can be sure that your mental ‘harmony’ was disturbed or broken. This is not the forum to go into more detail about metaphysical diagnosis, however, start looking at your mental ‘harmony’, your loving thoughts for life itself, and learn how to better your daily experience by the simple
mantra: ‘Harmony is the principle underlying all life’.
