HOW POWERFUL ARE THE FORCES OF HARMONY?

 

Love-hatred, harmony-disharmony, optimism-pessimism, are merely a collection of emotions which are at the disposal of humanity to use as an individual likes.  It's our thoughts which are powerful, wherever we decide to direct them.  So the question should be, 'Why would one choose to direct one's energies towards love and harmony?' and not 'How powerful are the forces of love and harmony?'

 

So, why should the world let go of the destructive forces of hatred and discordance, and focus on love-harmony now? First of all, as far as recorded history goes, the concept of 'love and harmony', as the governing force in a community, first surfaced in the world around two thousand, five hundred years ago.  In that era, the denser emotions of fear-hate-disharmony-separateness reigned supreme, and the lighter emotions of love-harmony-respect-unity were peripheral, considered signs of weakness.  Since then, we have vacillated between these powerful opposing forces, with the latter gradually gaining ground.

 

Life has been, and still is, a series of dramas through which humanity discovers the heights of its creative powers and the depths of its destructive capabilities.  We've been experimenting for an eternity with these two forces.  If we look simply at two archetypes of the last century, we see that Hitler demonstrated the destructive depths to which humanity could sink, at that time; while Gandhi demonstrated the creative heights of consciousness humanity could reach, at that time.

 

The drama played out between the U.S.S.R and its satellites, and the U.S.A. and its satellites, which brought us to the brink of a nuclear war in the mid-1980s, before ending in the dissolution of Communist Europe in 1989, set new limits on denser emotions, and established a broader arena for the lighter emotions.

 

Yet, denser emotions still hold sway after all this time.  Extremists in both the eastern and western hemispheres are violently promoting their own agendas, while the moderates, the pacifists, the global harmonists speak with gentler voice. Martin Luther King Jr. had this to say about that reality, and his words are still valid today: "It is still one of the tragedies of human history that the 'children of darkness' are frequently more determined and zealous than the 'children of light'."

 

One reason for this is that the world as we know it was structured by people who were working primarily with denser emotions.  So everything created out of these 'structures' - movies, and other 'weapons of mass media', degree program formats and corporate management practices, even some religious customs - was designed to make us believe that the denser side of humanity is the norm. So anybody exhibiting the 'lighter' qualities on a consistent basis would be classified as a living saint, abnormal and far removed from everyday life.  It stands to reasons, then, that for lighter emotions to prevail, many of these 'structures' would have to disappear.  This is not a call for revolution, merely a reality.  As thought patterns change, so do their manifestations.

 

 More importantly, however, the 'children of light', having decided that there is much to be gained by leaving behind the denser emotions which continually bring humanity and Earth to the brink of destruction,  and promoting instead the lighter emotions, must be willing to say out loud: GAME OVER! It's time to find out what a focus on Light energies will bring!

 

THE FORCES OF HARMONY CAN BE AS POWERFUL AS WE MAKE THEM.
