True Harmony And False Harmony

Harmony: a combination that works as one.
Unison: oneness.

Conventional harmony and unison are temporary.
Ultimate harmony and unison are our reality.
True harmony comes from the realisation of inner unison.

Harmony is being at one, but at one with what?
On a conventional level, a harmonious environment is one where people work well together, but this needs a focal point to which all consent. Who chooses the speed and direction of where we are going? It is because of the need for a focal point that this harmony is of a temporary nature, so harmony on a conventional level is being at one – for only a short period of time.

This need to have a focal point is the cause of false harmony, as we may feel in conflict with the conventional focal point but cannot talk about these problems and fears. And so, we have to stay silent and obey the focal point of others’ choosing. False harmony is therefore the cause of subtle friction and division.

At a conventional level, harmony is an illusion that pressurises others to conform. This is especially evident in spiritual groups, and results in false harmony.

On a conscious level, we all make an effort to deal with our emotions, but we haven’t faced them at a deeper level, where they lurk at the back of our minds and we try to avoid them. We evade conflict by refusing to engage in in-depth conversations. As a result, it looks as if people are getting along, but we don’t feel right with one another and the core issues are not being addressed because we are all following a generic idea that has been established. For example, compassion; we can say prayers about compassion for those afar, but can’t deal with those close to us.

True harmony is the unity of non-duality, that can harmonise with everything and is at peace with everything, as inner realisation is the spontaneous recognition of appearances that are simultaneous with that recognition.

Conventional and absolute realities become inseparable. When we (pure consciousness) are at one with our self (this confused mind), then empathetic compassion can work easily in a conventional world.

When we can admit that we have problems, then we will have true harmony. There will be difficulties and distractions up to and until the moment of true enlightenment. As these problems and distractions reduce, they become subtler and subtler.

True harmony comes from the realisation of inner unison.
