BY FRANCIS C. W. FUNG, PH.D. BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhuanet) -- Harmony is the order of nature. Resonance is nature's preferred way of propagation. We resonate in harmony in a chorus. We receive multitudes of signals and information through sound waves, light waves, Radio, TV, Internet waves and so on in the air through all types of harmony resonances by way of physical, electronic and other natural phenomena too numerous to mention. In harmony our hearts can resonate together. The annual World Harmony Cultural Festival will cause harmony to resonate in people's hearts. I will persist.

Justice opens our eyes to the world's disharmony. By practicing harmony through necessary self discipline we each pave the way for bringing harmony through resonance. Harmony premise is tolerance, understanding, acceptance, respect, equity, humility and patience. As great as religion and democracy are as the two other pillars of human main culture besides harmony, they have been lacking in unifying the world in diversity even after 2500 years. The inadequacy lies in the fixation of each religion's individual institutionalized God. In the case of democracy the rueful disregard of respective nation's historical development, disrespect for individual nationalistic cultures, coupled with coercion and use of military force greatly tarnished its image.

Harmony being the most universal value and nature's order will propagate by resonance, nature's preferred way. Harmony does not need to be institutionalized because it belongs to the world. By its very principle, It renounces force and violence. Its ultimate believe is that the softest triumphs over the hardest by patience and not necessary through passivity. Just like the erosion of the hardest by the softest elements air and water as I always image. To be soft and gentle require more discipline than to be hard and tough. A gentle and humble nature requires the practice of harmony through the deepest conviction in the face of force and violence.

As a self learner since childhood I am not thrilled to teach sometimes. Although I taught fluid mechanics, physics, mathematics, international business, foreign affairs and creativity one time or the other in my career. I believe we all can learn by our self when we want to. For religion and philosophy the days of paid preacher is on the wane because of the spread of universal education. I am very thrilled that you share with me your insight and wisdom because I am enriched and grow by it. I am deeply appreciative of all who responded to me. Be proud you are citizens of the world and not citizens of one powerful nation.

May Harmony Prevail in the World!
