He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the universe, according to Marcus Aurelius.
All of us are a part of big human rosary which is tied up by a common thread of ‘Relationship’. As soon as we are born, our relationship starts with our mother till the time we die when we are cremated by our relatives.
However with modern day development, the whole relationship pattern between humans has changed because of which the traditions and practices which created harmony in society and in personal relations, are dying.
Our desire for a big car, a big house, big salary and a bigger self ego is eroding our value system, making us more materialistic than a real modern personality. Its so paradoxical that on the one hand we are getting modernised but on the other hand we are loosing the human touch. Our relationship with nature too is suffering as a result of which we are facing natures wrath in the form of drought, famine, floods etc.Our situation is fast changing from bad to worse and as a result , neither do we live, nor let others live in harmony in this world.
So who is to be blamed for this downfall? For that we need to first understand the causes of lack of harmony and ponder upon the pre-requisites of creating harmony in society. To put it in simple words, harmony means friendliness and togetherness. So, if we work for the welfare of others and have love and sympathy towards them, it would be considered a good contribution to create harmony in society. Remember, the most appropriate time to create harmony is now because never before in the history of humanity had there been such a steep decline in values. Let us take a pledge to save our culture and moral values and fill them in every human being which would enable them to become a symbol of inspiration for everyone.
