Re: Harmony with Nature and the Universe

IMO there is balance, but harmony and peace, not so
much. The universe was born in and still is in chaos.
From a very outside perspective you can see it in many
different ways. We are born to die. In the physical
realm, we are flawed. Be it because we are born in sin
as the bible says, or be it that we have not tuned
ourselves into enlightenment as Buddhists believe.

Like us, the universe is dying, and transforming.
There has to be a balance somewhere or it just
wouldn't work at all.

How much of us is in the realm of real harmony,
balance, and peace I don't know. But it exists.

Just my opinion on the matter. I am by no means a seasoned Aikidoka.
