Harmony Is The Secret Principle of Life
Good judgment is a natural expression of wisdom; but it is directly dependent on harmony within, which is poise of mind. When the mind lacks harmony, it has no peace; and without peace it lacks both judgment and wisdom. Life is full of bumps and knocks. In the hours of trials, which demand your keenest judgment, if you preserve your mental equilibrium you will attain victory. Inner harmony is your greatest supporter in bearing the burden of life.
The world abounds in evils, but do you know that these are necessary? They are the inharmony, the shadows amidst the light, that creates diversity, duality, without which there would be only the Divine Singularity. This does not mean that you are to embrace evil and discord, nor that you are not to resist and fight them.
You are a soul, an individualized expression of God, intended to view creation as He does. You are to find the underlying harmony midst the disharmony, and to maintain that harmony within yourself.
Harmony is the secret principle that controls life; without it life will disintegrate. Your breath flows and your health is vibrant as long as your bodily organs work in harmony. But if there is discord, disease ensues and the breath flies away, leaving a carcass of flesh and bones.
This is equally true in any type of organization - any structure that has interacting parts, from nature as a whole to human relationships to corporate businesses and spiritual societies. Harmony is the soul of organization; disharmony is death.
Harmony is the fruit of common understanding. "With all thy getting, get understanding." Efforts to establish harmony among human beings or nations solely on the basis of economic equality or equivalence of military preparedness are sure to fail. There can never be understanding if the attention is fixed on things as temporal as gold pieces, navies, and guns.
It is not parity in wealthy nor an equal in number of bombs or cruisers that will bring peace to man and to this world, but the inner harmony of the individual human souls who compromise the various nations and the social structures in them.
What is necessary is an understanding of the common higher necessities for the preservation and true happiness of the bodies, minds, and souls of all beings.
