Harmony



Harmony isn’t something that comes naturally at least for humans. Unlike the Dao that always acts in perfect harmony, man seems bent of creating disharmony even when he claims he wants harmony. His efforts are like a speeding boat that creates a wake that disrupts the peacefulness of a lake. The faster he tries to get there, the further away from harmony he becomes. In a perfect world, we would all be harmonious, but that perfect world is always elusive. As the old saying goes, it is easy to be a holy man on top of a mountain. But our lives are lived below the mountain top, down in the valleys where conflict runs rampant and grows like an unchecked patch of weeds choking out the beautiful flowers.
