Default "To the World: Your harmony is mine..."

...Whatever time you choose is the right time. Not late, not early. To nature: What the turn of your seasons brings me falls like ripe fruit. All things are born from you, exist in you, and return to you.” ---Marcus Aurelius (From his book, "Meditations")

Maybe the title of this should be, 'To the World, my Harmony is yoursMaybe the peace and love we generate within ourselves is what we give to the world.? Maybe it starts with us. That we make the difference. Maybe its our responsibility to bring harmony, first in ourselves which then radiates out to the environment around us.


Love

Carmen

I agree Carmen. I also think acceptance is key for discovering harmony. I have accepted in myself that my happiness stems from delivering happiness to others, and from feeling appreciated. I think what this quote truly means, is that happiness is what we should hold onto as humans. It is what we should return to, because everything else is just an attempt to reach the happiness that we all strive to maintain. Pain motivates, but we wish to shed it. Anger engulfs us, but we wish to put out the fire unless we give in to it. Happiness, is the rock. The home that we return to, the only thing that truly belongs to us, in our heart.
