How to Create Harmony in Your World

by Michael Corthell

When you change your way of thinking you will change your life. 

In order to change your situation in the world, you must first change your inner world. Your thoughts, both positive and negative drive your behavior. 

Underneath the beauty we see around us and the harmony we observe in nature, there are fixed natural laws that govern the existence of everything. When we obey these laws, we are in harmony and can create or own beauty and harmony; when we don’t abide by these laws, there will be disharmony, chaos and destruction.

Here are the 'harmonic laws':

Be 'holy', that is be complete. We are all 'holy', but most of us don't even know it. The universe is whole and it wraps around us and we are part of it. The Universe is all there is, it is complete. Realize that we are complete and whole as well. When we live in accordance with natural law, we live in harmony. This means to live within the truth or true reality.

Live your life from the inside out. How we run our lives is a reflection of our inner thinking. When we create harmony in our mind and body, we experience harmony in our outer world too. This means to be constantly aware and let go of negative thoughts and negative patterns of thought that may block the harmony. Harmony fosters love, success and abundance so they all can flow into our life easily.

About Yin and Yang (translated: dark/bright). Duality is found in many belief systems. Yin and Yang make up the 'oneness'.  In our Western, success/consumerism culture, yin and yang are out of balance. In American culture particularly it takes extreme dedication to balance our lives, find inner peace, and harmony. We all have to balance work and play, activities and rest, excitement and contentment, ambition and acceptance, materialism and spirituality in order to have stable, happy lives.

Live in Einstein reality: manipulate time. We feel rushed, we don't have enough time to do all the things we want to do. We feel bored with too much time on our hands. We create the perception of time. We can compress time by doing what we love and spending time with the people that we love, or we can expand time by doing the opposite. We must understand time to create harmonious lives. One of the keys of time is to be fully present in whatever you’re doing. It is to live in the present moment – not the past, not the future.

Know this: Expect and accept change. The number one, immutable law of nature is that things change. If you don't like that, change your mind! If we expect and accept changes in our lives, we’re are much more likely to live in a state of balance and therefor harmony.

'Roll with it baby' ― go with the flow. There are cycles in nature. The sun rises and it sets. The moon gets full and then it wanes. Seasons come and seasons go. There’s a time for everything. To live in harmony is to learn to live with the flow of life rather than to go against it.

The Universe always seeks balance. The Law of Compensation states that for every action (cause), there is an equal and opposite reaction (effect). If the pendulum swings one way, it must swing back the other way.

''The person who enjoys great pleasure will also be subject to great suffering.
The person who feels little pain is incapable of feeling extreme joy."

Happiness is not a matter of rushing through a life of intense activity, it is a life of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.

How to stay calm when you know you'll be stressed | Daniel Levitin          

You're not at your best when you're stressed. In fact, your brain has evolved over millennia to release cortisol in stressful situations, inhibiting rational, logical thinking but potentially helping you survive, say, being attacked by a lion. Neuroscientist Daniel Levitin thinks there's a way to avoid making critical mistakes in stressful situations, when your thinking becomes clouded — the pre-mortem. "We all are going to fail now and then," he says. "The idea is to think ahead to what those failures might be."
