Harmony Speech at Mill Valley Rotary, MV Golf Club, San Francisco
Ladies, Gentlemen and Dear Friends,
It is my honor to speak to such a distinguished audience. Harmony is a broad subject indeed. It was developed from human observation of nature. It spans all human interactions and activities and back to ecology. It is the underlying principle of a multitude of disciplines such as music, natural phenomena, mathematics, physics and more. Harmony propagates by resonance, nature's preferred way of propagation. We resonate in harmony singing in a chorus. Our hearts resonate in harmony when we are overwhelmed by powerful emotions of love and admiration. We can resonate to unity in diversity which is harmony. Our hearts do not resonate to base emotions of hate, anger and jealousy. They invoke destructive forces.
In today's world of international conflicts, religious strife, North and South disparities, terrorism, extremism and unilateralism, harmony renaissance is the only common value universal solution. The tide of harmony renaissance is inevitable. All present will become pioneers of harmony renaissance. Harmony advocates non violence. Its premise are tolerance, acceptance, respect, equity, patience and humility. As powerful as we are we will not have nobility and hope unless we practice humility. This is the new global awareness. Harmony is the conduit to facilitate multi directional cultural flow not just from West to East and North to South. Harmony is the all embracing unifying force for unity in diversity.
My background is in aerospace science. My interest is foreign affairs leading to world harmony renaissance. Harmony is the universal theme that we can all resonate. Without being immodest I can share with you two books and over thirty essays I have published just on harmony renaissance. However today, I will speak to help you digest your lunch by limiting myself to topics you will appreciate. Those have bigger appetites I suggest you visit our website http://www.worldharmonyorg.net/ And our blog site where over 35 of my essays are published and continue to grow. I welcome your contribution also. http://www.worldharmonyforum.blogspot.com/ The site are printed on the hand out. If you missed the hand out, do ask me for a business card.
Today I will make the following introductory remarks. After that it will be an open forum with the help of our monitor. (Remind me to stop in time for discussions, otherwise I can keep you here for hours if not for days.)
(I) The three main world cultural pillars for 21st century are religion, democracy and harmony. Harmony belongs to the world. It is in our gene in one form or the other to be awakened to reach a collective consensus.
(II) It is time for America, the young dynamic country endowed with resources, to advocate harmony renaissance. Thoughts on ecology will lead us to common harmony consensus.
(III) We will launch our first World Harmony Cultural Festival this third Sunday, September 16, 2007. Cosponsored by San Francisco State University and other distinguished ecology minded individuals and organizations.
May harmony prevail in the world.
