Ponderings on Harmony

 

 

 

Harmony is a quality that is often misunderstood. In traditional usage it is seen as something quite passive, something soft and gentle and non-confrontational, a quality that is easily disrupted by the hustle and bustle of daily life. And yet in my experience harmony is anything but passive – to experience harmony in its most genuine expression, one must be willing to face the aspects within oneself that are dis-harmonious. True harmony is not gained by backing down from an argument, but by working through the disagreement until acceptance is reached. This is the quality that lies at the core of authentic harmony – when we can truly learn to accept ourselves and the world around us, we can allow ourselves to move into a harmonious state.

 

A lack of conflict is not necessarily the same as a state of harmony. While we still have parts within us that are in pain, from past experiences and trauma, can we honestly be said to be in harmony with ourselves? Only once we heal ourselves of the pain and trauma we carry within us could we possibly achieve that state. The simple fact is that healing ourselves is never going to be soft and gentle. We must first acknowledge that we are not okay, which in and of itself can be a very painful process, and then allow ourselves to accept what we feel. Only then can the pain be released, the emotional wounds healed, and we can take another step towards our own version of true harmony with ourselves and the world.

 

But this version of harmony, where we face our demons and overcome them, is impossible for the world to disrupt. This allows us to face ourselves, and the world at large, with a smile.

Myth busters...

Exploring a new paradigm of Coaching, Mentoring and Interpersonal Facilitation, what it is and what it isn’t, from the perspective of GCA heart-based philosophy.

 

Myth: People often mistake harmony for peace or cessation of hostility.  We feel that things are harmonious if we are not in conflict. 


 

Bust:

 

We often think to get out of conflict we expect people to suppress how they feel or what they think.  We mistake harmony with everyone agreeing or having the same opinion.  But this is not harmony, it is just suppressing people's free will. 

 

To have true harmony we must be able to allow everyone's needs and ideas to be expressed.  We must take into consideration people's free will.  We need to have intelligent discussions and through everyone expressing their needs come to a decision through wisdom.  We must find what is the highest good for everyone involved would look like.  Not just one party or the winner of the argument but everyone.  Once that decision is reached everyone then must accept the decision. 

 

Again this is easier for people/nations to do if they feel that their needs have been heard and understood. A harmonious decision does not make everyone happy, nor does it make everyone a winner.  It is a balance of wisdom and intelligence.

Who We Are and What We Do

 

If you have not yet studied with us, you may not already know that the Global Coaching Academy has been creating and delivering heart-based training programmes since 2004.

 

We began as a very small Registered Training Organisation in Perth offering a Certificate of Mentoring and Coaching. This was in response to people who were looking for a meaningful course and qualification that wasn't all about 'rah rah' and money making, rather about wanting to make a difference and support others to become the best versions of themselves. 17 years later, GCA is delivering a Diploma of Mentoring, Coaching and Interpersonal Facilitation, as a fully internationally recognised ICF accredited coach training program to participants in United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, Asia and New Zealand.
