H is for Harmony

                       



To return to this fun theme... see the  directions here.


H is for



The word harmony means

agreement; accord; harmonious relations.
 or
a consistent, orderly, or pleasing arrangement of parts;
congruity.. or to meet together   seeing the likeness in one another and not the difference...

My question in regard to  this topic is how did  we  as a people become so  incongruent...  so disharmonious...   our   community of   peoples   have become as of clanging,   discordant,  disagreeable,   incompatible  cacophony   of  clashing dissonance.

definition of dissonance~

lack of agreement; especially : inconsistency between the beliefs one holds or between one's actions and one's beliefs

and

a mingling of discordant sounds; especially : a clashing or unresolved musical interval or chord.

I  do not necessarily    believe in the  political correctness of  tolerance,  because  clearly  since the  word "tolerance"  began  being  used    to  attempt to  foster  congruency, it  has   suffered   wrongly in our society.  In order for the   word "tolerance" to be  harmonious it has to work both ways... and it does not!  I   prefer the  old fashioned words of   respect,   love,    courtesy,  because these hit directly to  a  particular    character  trait    that  when   is expressed one  to another   fosters  a harmonious   melody that    soothes  the weary   climate of our society instead of the disquieting,    radical,  hatred   only fosters divisions that   seems to be flourishing  in   communities across our land! 
  My  soul  is   crying out for harmony  among peoples....   based on love, respect,  and courtesy..that   builds  bridges  of community and   peace  .. let us   live together in harmony!

  4. I agree. By being respectful, loving (open-minded), and courteous, a person naturally tolerates differences. Individuals, families, and institutions are responsible for teaching and reinforcing those values. Unfortunately, it seems, some in power -- govt., religion, industry, etc. -- manipulate the insecurities in people to fear and hate.
