Living in Harmony

If you can allow not push or pull
If you can accept not try to force
If you can cease all resistance and be open to change
Then you will be living in harmony

If you can search for beauty with all your heart
If you can work together in cooperation
If you can appreciate all beings great and small
Then you will be living in harmony

We can never know what is ‘good’ or ‘bad’ really
For some of the ‘worst’ experiences in our life
Turn out to be the ‘best’ in time
Especially if you’re living in harmony

So it is pointless resisting change
And useless fighting what is
Like the seasons, this too shall pass
Accepting this will lead to harmony

If you can experience but not hold on to it
If you can permit others to be as they are
If you can love solely for the sake of loving
Then you will be living in harmony

If you can give for the sake of giving
But still be open to receiving
If you can let what must be, be
Then you will be living in harmony

We have become so disconnected
From everything but our minds
How does living in our heads
Help us to live in harmony?

We have become so out of tune
Out of sync with all we are
It is time we returned to our selves
Returned to live in harmony

If you can care not what others think
If you can know your own truth inside
If you can accept yourself as you are
Then you will be living in harmony

If you can help those who are in trouble
Giving aid with no thought of return
If you can drop all pretensions and be completely yourself
Then you will be living in harmony

Why have we separated ourselves from nature?
When there is so much she can teach us?
Why do we ignore our inner wisdom?
Why do we longer value harmony?

When our body talks, why don’t we listen?
Why this perception of humankind as all?
Living in our minds disconnected from our selves
We have forgotten how to find harmony

So if you can listen to the knowledge only you know
If you can perceive that which others cannot
If you can ask the questions and then embody the answers
You can once more live in harmony

Then you will always be at peace no matter what
And you will always be able to smile
Even to laugh when life may seem to be upside down
For you will be living in harmony
