To know harmony and balance, we must both embrace the light and the darkness for there is much of both in life. Pining for one when experiencing the other only will cause desperation. Into each life a little rain must fall. Without the rain, how could we enjoy the sunshine of an afternoon? Harmony is not to be in perpetual happiness, this is a misunderstanding. Harmony is to be at ease, no matter what the situation. When it is cold, we are cold. When it is warm, we are warm. We change and assimilate to the world around us; not expect the world to assimilate to our tastes.
