Watercolor by Lyn Mason, September 2007
Defined by the Artist: Harmony is the natural, graceful flow of the rhythm of life. Inherent in the balance and order of Nature, it is also our gift if we are willing to receive it. To be in harmony with life is to courageously open our hearts to life in the present moment, trusting whatever shows up to be for our highest good. With an open heart, we discover the Divine Order that intricately manages all of our experiences as well as all of life's processes. The mind can then loosen it's attachment to struggle, as it begins to relinquish the illusion of control. The struggle it has long fought, between yearning for what is not and resisting what is, dies away to "allowing" and "letting be". As we consciously move from our controlling minds into open heartedness, breathing deeply, we relax into the natural ebb and flow of life, find freedom, balance, and the inner peace that dwells in the present moment. This healing inner harmony continues to promote a calmer mind and body, which transforms our lives, creating more balance, ease, love and joy.
Allowing harmony into our being also reminds us of our true identity as spiritual beings, as opposed to "human doings". Spending time in an aware state of inner harmony will manifest as generosity, cooperation with others, and peace in the world.
God's gift and prayer for us is to choose to make that "letting go" journey into the heart to receive the jewel of harmony within.
