Increasing Harmony In Your Life Brings Peace and Happiness
When we live in harmony with our authentic selves and align our work, habits, relationships, money, thoughts, and actions with our true values, we experience a greater sense of peace and happiness in every aspect of our lives. We are able to achieve things that before, we could only dream about.
When we’re not in harmony in these areas, we experience more fear, feelings of lack and limitation, restlessness, doubt, and dissatisfaction with our lives. Over time, this causes a strain on our health, our relationships, our sense of well being, our careers, and keeps us from achieving our full potential. Living in harmony is a practice – it’s a conscious choice of how we want to live.

I love these! My favorite one is the quote by Alexander Pope, “The way of the Creative works through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the Great Harmony: this is what furthers and what perseveres.” Nice job!

Positively, I love all the quotes and they hit my heart! When I started to read them, I hear the flow of harmony in the air and scar of love bumps in my heart….However, I think that the quote which catches my attention is the one by Morihei Ueshiba which says: “Each and every master, regardless of the era or the place, heard the call and attained harmony with heaven and earth. There are many paths leading to the top of Mount Fuji, but there is only one summit – love.” I really love this site and I am willing to visit it more often if I lost hope someday or maybe if I will want to hear the sound of harmony-again.
Beautiful quote, thank you so much for sharing it! Nice to see you on LifeOhm, hope you come back. Best, Monica
