THE TWELVE VIRTUES OF HARMONY RENAISSANCE
Harmony is the most common value of mankind. All ancient cultural heritages include harmony faith. Twentieth century history has been dominated Western ideals of Freedom, Liberty and Democracy. These ideals revolutionized the relations between citizens and their governments. These changes resulted in today’s modern Western government systems. Harmony is an ancient ideal of more than two thousand years old. It is a system of beliefs that include all relations between individuals, within oneself, within the family, citizen and government, between nations and down to between human and nature. As an all inclusive faith for conflict resolution, harmony belief has been neglected for over two centuries. The modern society in its departure from harmony faith tends to be very materialistic. Evolution by the survival of the fittest has been inordinately emphasized.
Today’s conflicted world of religious and ideological confrontations calls for the revival of harmony faith. World Harmony Organization is dedicated to the pursuit of Harmony Renaissance. Our mission is to work with United Nations to support a modern harmony culture that can begin to harmonize relations between nations as well as between man and nature. There is no higher faith healing than Harmony Renaissance. Harmony Renaissance reconciles all faiths, religions and ideologies, when it is upheld by the international community as a New World Order.
Harmony is the order of nature and the operating principle of the universe. Harmony Faith as the order of universe is proclaimed in our Harmony Renaissance Preamble and Declaration. This is delivered as a speech at the April 25, 2008, Spring of U.N. Festival. Further disclosure of Harmony Faith is also attached in the article titled “Harmony Faith, the Order of the Universe”.
Harmony Renaissance is the inevitable tide humans are waiting to bring us to the next level of accomplishment after European Renaissance. To participate in this second wave of dynamic harmony movement the twelve virtues of Harmony Renaissance are presented here. They are: TOLERANCE, ACCEPTANCE, RESPECT, KINDNESS, FORGIVENESS, HUMILITY, GENTLENESS, PATIENCE, EQUITY, NONVIOLENCE, GREEN ECOLOGY AND CONSERVATION. The last two being actions we now must collectively take urgently to harmonize with nature in order to avoid catastrophe on earth.
We propose that United Nations every year organize an international artists contest for the best combination of poetry and art to extol the twelve Harmony Renaissance virtues. The selected first ten submissions will be published worldwide as that year’s calendars for world distribution. This will become an important tradition for mankind to start each year with harmony inspirations. So Harmony Renaissance and the 12 virtues of harmony will live in the hearts of mankind. We can also proclaim the first month of each year as Harmony Renaissance month to advocate the twelve virtues of harmony culture.
