The Infinite Human: Harmony
by Scott Rabalais
An orchestra consists of many types of musical instruments, each offering its own unique sounds, notes, chords and tones. Harmony is produced when two or more different notes are played at the same time and generally create a pleasing sound to the ear. Harmony also refers to any type of system in which the component parts work together in a complementary manner. For example, we may consider our solar system working in harmony as the sun, planets, moons, asteroids and comets comprise an arrangement that operates in harmony.
Inherent within every nook and cranny of the cosmos is the quality of harmony. In any given moment, all aspects of creation exist in harmony. Appearances may be different in lower levels of perception, but harmony is an inherent quality of the light, just as are freedom and infinite intelligence.
When we speak of harmony between individuals, we refer to the comfortable blending of the lives, values and actions in their relationship. There is a natural attraction and fluid interaction that occurs in the midst of harmony. On the other hand, relationships fraught with disharmony are those that often contain struggle, strife and tension.
The cosmos is a system in which all elements, by their very nature, are in a state of harmony. However, we do not always perceive the elements in harmony and can be quick to judge situations as discordant. For example, in a symphony orchestra a bass drum may produce a very different sound than a flute, while the flute sound differs greatly from that of the chimes. However, by combining the sounds from these instruments, along with others, a harmony can be produced that supports the melody of the song. Listening to the sounds separately does not generate the experience of harmony, but from a “higher” perspective all the sounds fit together in a congruent manner to create a pleasing arrangement.
Similarly, viewing a busy ant pile, one gets the impression that the individual ant is just scurrying about in a chaotic state. However, if one views the system (ant pile) from a higher perspective and sees the purpose behind the actions of each ant and the ant pile as a whole, one realizes the true “symphony” at work.
Consider as well the trillions of cells that make up the human body. Then, factor in the complex processes that occur within and among these cells, and one realizes the human body is a virtual infinite “symphony” of activity. And yet, the body is able to function in a harmonious state, each component doing its part to serve the greater whole. While infinite intelligence is at work, so, too, is harmony in the “blending” of all the processes of the human body.
One may present a case that a body fighting cancer is one that is in disharmony. From a limited perspective, that judgment is frequently made. However, from a higher perspective, the disease is simply serving as in indicator and a catalyst to bring about vibrational alignment in the human being. Viewed from a non-judgmental, higher awareness, the disease is seen as a gift that is effecting a higher vibration. In short, all exists in a state of harmony, and this can be recognized from an elevated state of consciousness. Existence and light can be no other way, as harmony is a quality of existence.
There are no limits to the depths and the intricacies of such harmony. Every aspect of the light is in harmony with every other aspect (the idea of an “aspect” is applied in perception only). This means that a grain of sand in the Sahara Desert is in harmony with a mosquito that flies on the beaches of Miami, Florida. Again, all existence is interconnected and shares the same inherent qualities.
As human beings, we, too, are of that inherent harmony that is within all existence. This means that we are capable of experiencing harmony as who we are, as a characteristic of our being. And yet, the idea of harmony implies not only harmony within, but harmony with all that exists. So, while we can feel harmonious in our physical form or in a mental state, we also exist in harmony with all that we may view “outside” as separate and apart from us. However, when we focus on the idea of separation, this prohibits us from experiencing harmony. It is only in unification or blending of “parts” that we can experience the system as a whole and thus its resulting harmony.
Harmony implies an awareness of the whole and actions that fit in an orderly manner with the whole. For example, the orchestra member who plays the flute must be aware of how the music from the flute fits into and complements the sounds from the other instruments. The flutist serves his highest purpose when he plays in coordination with the entire music piece, rather than playing out of sync with the orchestra.
Likewise, when our lives are in harmony with all of humanity, we are acting as a harmonious aspect or agent of humanity. We contribute to the whole, and do so by acting naturally out of the light. Though we never escape our inherent nature as light, we are able to experience the harmony of our existence when we live according to the light and for the benefit of the whole.
No effort or strength of will is required to live in harmony. Likewise, we don’t have to earn our freedom or study diligently to be of infinite intelligence. Harmony is inherent in who we are. In experiencing the core of our being, we experience the harmony of our nature as a light being. We are the music that complements the symphony of the cosmos. And, we are the symphony itself.
