I have been busy thinking about Harmony in our world and our individual lives. Did you ever stop to consider what true harmony might feel like? Consider for a moment your very favorite music in the world. How does it make you feel? That’s harmony! It resonates in your physical body and makes you happy! Melodies flow in and out, and intertwine to make a perfect piece of music that has a harmonious effect on you and on the world. The notes must all work together each doing their part, but not as strong individually as they are all together to create this beautiful song or symphony in the world.
Now let’s think about what would happen if all of us (all of humanity) would work together in the world like this – each of us doing our own part, carrying our own responsibilities, but working together to create a beautiful human world without war or poverty or illness.
Do you remember the old Coke a Cola song from the 1970’s “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing in Perfect Harmony?” Well, I have a hunch that we can begin to do this, with one small act of kindness, followed by another. You see, with one small act of kindness, one generous thought, a smile to the next person you pass on the street, or offering a hand to help someone, we will begin our journey towards a better future, a more humane world. When we choose to do good, and be kind and generous in the world, it creates more kindness! Acts of kindness also reverberate back to us making us feel healthier and happier. It works the same as throwing a small pebble into a pond. The pebble creates a ripple effect in concentric circles that radiate out in larger and larger circles, until it reaches the shore.
Will you join me in being part of this ripple effect in the world? Just be kind to the next person you meet (a stranger on the street, or a family member) and watch your world transform!
