Keys to Harmony

keystoharmony

I am learning the keys to harmony.  Perhaps in the back of my mind, I have known the tune all along, but had resorted to humming, instead of learning the lyrics.  I think that may be what many of us do in life.  We either stay silent or we hit a wrong note in an attempt to be heard.  Or we hum the melody without using our words.

And sometimes this serves us.

And sometimes, it does not.

The keys are to know the difference.

Often attempts at harmony are not met with enthusiasm for various reasons.  We sing in different keys and therefore to be in harmony with others, we need to compromise and find the middle ground in order to communicate easily.  One wrong note and the harmony ceases.  It’s often difficult for each person to be themselves, to sing their own part and somehow find harmony with those around them.  It takes practice, patience, understanding and listening from a place of love in order to harmonize with others.  We cannot come to the piano bench expecting to play life’s keys perfectly without listening for those around us as they play their tune as well.

Listening to others’ tunes, hearing how they hit the notes, noticing which ones they miss and how they feel about harmony takes practice.  Being in an observer mode, hearing our own notes and seeing the whole orchestral piece of music helps the players get along and helps the musical piece rise to new heights.

To be in tune with ourselves is a gift, like The Presents of Presence.  To appreciate the music in others is a precious gift as well.  It takes courage to play our own tune.  It takes love to harmonize with others.  But when it all comes together, love shines through the blended piece!

Today, listen to your song.  Take a moment to listen to Nature.  As you pass through the lives of others today, whether it is a brief encounter or a lifelong relationship, hum your song and listen as others tune in with harmony!

Shine On!

Daily Prompt: Simply the Best

When do your best ideas come?  Mine mostly come at night.  For example, the name of my blog, The Presents of Presence came to me around 4am on one of those famous sleepless nights.  It just popped into my brain, almost like I heard it and I just knew in my heart that it was Misifusa’s Blog’s new additional name.  I get many of those a-ha moments in the middle of the night like that.  Things just come to me, unbidden and I then pursue them when dawn arrives.

But there are moments during those early morning hours, before the family is awake and stirring, when only Tiffy Cat and I are up, that my blog posts write themselves.  Ok, I admit it.  Does that make sense or are you now thinking that I’m totally batty?  Does this ever happen to you ~ that you find something that very morning which sparks a post or that triggers a creativity stream of words that feels endless?  My fingers whisk along the keyboard at breakneck speed in order to capture the words flowing through my mind at 100 miles an hour.  I think they happen to me this way because I am relaxed, I am open and I am receptive.

Those are the posts, the writings, the comments, the drafts that I find most appealing for I know that Source/God/Infinite Spirit have blessed me with help that day and for that, I am eternally grateful.

I’m curious, when is your best time?

Shine On!
