Day 24 ~ February 23 ~ Harmony
“A spirit of harmony can only survive if each of us remembers, when bitterness and self-interest seem to prevail, that we share a common destiny.”
~ Barbara Jordan
“The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.” ~ Rabindranath Tagore
We need to remember that we are all on this planet together. It is becoming increasingly crucial that we all work together and with each other rather than working against each other. Humanity is facing many challenges that require our best defense without us creating additional unnecessary problems between ourselves. The greatest catalyst of harmony is love. By making the choice to operate from a place of love and kindness we are contributing to a culture of nonviolence.

If I feel hurt or angry or feel that I have been violated in some way, gossip, judgment, and retaliation can only make matters worse. As I fully understand the impact of our connectedness today, I make living in harmony my priority.
Choosing not to engage in any form of gossip today contributes to harmony. Choose to see the good in others instead of finding fault. Spend the entire day without criticizing anything or anyone. Look only for the good in yourself and others.
