it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day…

I’ve been reflecting on the idea of harmony, in large part because I’m reading Prince Charles’ book by that name. What the Prince of Wales suggests – I’m paraphrasing here – is that we have fallen out of step with the rhythm of nature (ie, the world we inhabit). We’ve constructed an entirely new reality that is out of sync with the way the world works. We need to restore the harmony once felt by our ancestors. There was a time when people knew in their hearts something we have forgotten with our heads. But there is a spark of something that’s growing – a movement towards accord, a movement towards peace, for that is what harmony means.

Listen to this song performed by Nina Simone. Pay attention to the lyrics – I believe this song embodies this spirit of harmony with nature, when everything feels aligned and just right (Birds flying high, you know how I feel; Sun in the sky, you know how I feel…).

May this year bring you peace, harmony, health, happiness, and the freedom to feel good.

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
~Mahatma Gandhi

“Harmony makes small things grow, lack of it makes great things decay.”
~Sallust

“Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.”
~Anatole France
