To be in harmony with life, there has to be harmony with oneself. But if this harmony puts one in conflict with others it has to be investigated to see if one is truly in harmony with oneself.
Each individual is controlled by the tools they are holding on to. To me, the most beneficial tool developed is where one can be present for their given life and not want anything to be different than what it is. The world revolves around each person’s story of the way they think things should be. Don’t conform to the way a person thinks you should be and dismissal is forthcoming.
Unless a practice of complete silence had been established, this is a part of just about everyone’s make up. If I don’t like what you are doing and I think it’s wrong, it’s because I think what I am doing is right. And I’m sure you will think what you are doing is right, so this makes for much of the disharmony in the world. But if one or both can come from a place of silence then the energy that causes this disharmony wouldn’t be as strong, even if one person holds on to their self righteousness. Energy doesn’t expand unless it is given more fuel and when the fuel is taken away, it dissipates. So it will be in silence that one will be in harmony themselves, with all beings, and thus with life.
