Re: Are you a World Harmony Philosopher?
- A response in triptych...
1) World Harmony Run is a flame.
When a flame touches ready fuel, we know what happens: fire bursts
forth and spreads. Both fuel and flame are needed. Here the fuel is
the inner hunger for harmony which is in each individual heart and the
world heart. Just as a flame is useless without fuel to burn, so the
World Harmony Run is meaningless without this inner hunger.
Fortunately, such a hunger is everywhere, offering plenty of
combustible fuel for a mighty bonfire of oneness, joy and harmony.
And this bonfire is also ... World Harmony Run.
2) World Harmony Run is a song.
A song lives wherever it is sung, a blossoming of light and joy
painting bright the halls of every heart it fills. It may be composed
by someone in one place, and performed by another in another place,
yet neither composer nor performer can own the song. Once it is sung
inside any heart, it is owned by that heart. Even so, each heart which
embraces the World Harmony Run can claim World Harmony Run as its own.
It is property of the oneness-happiness-heart of humanity. As
everyone owns this song-run, so everyone can interpret and express it
in his or her own way. And each will be perfectly correct, each
expression of each happy heart a melody, rhythm or cadence melding
into an ever-widening harmony.
And this universal symphony of heart-songs is also ... World Harmony
3) World Harmony Run is a journey.
This is no slow boat. This is an urgent, accelerating run, run, run,
run, run, run! It is the flight of human consciousness abandoning the
mire of division-mind for the liberation of our common heart-sky. It
is the quest for "the oneness and fullness of Tomorrow's Sun," that
state of complete, radiant, blissful fulfillment which is the
immediate goal and destiny of evolving humankind. This destination is
ours, but not if we just sit around. As movement invites the goal, we
must move purposefully forward, we must run and in running discover
our destination is already here, within. For those who are running,
"we ARE..." [not "we shall be..."] "...the oneness and fullness of
Tomorrow's Sun." This journey IS our destination.
And this destination is also ... World Harmony Run.
