Harmony and Balance


“I’m a great believer in harmony, but balance is bogus. Many teachers talk about balance, and guess what? Not one of them is balanced. I know; I used to be one of them. The only people who are perfectly balanced are six feet under and it’s not your time yet.
Balance in this world cannot be achieved, so get over it. Think of a scale.
In perfect balance, nothing’s happening. There’s no dynamism, no life or vibrancy.
Now, think of a jazz band in action — the life and vibrancy are palpable, aren’t they?
The performers in this band have less to do with playing the melody as written and more to do with improvising. They give life to nuance and the music takes shape in the moment.
That’s harmony.”
-- James Arthur Ray from "Harmonic Wealth"

Cap and Trade Debate Today In Senate

The asinine Cap and Trade bill (HR 2454/HR 2998) could come to the Senate floor today for debate. If passed, your energy costs will go through the roof. Anecdotal accounts on the web from those who have already been fitted with “smart meters” for their electric service, say that their bills skyrocketed after the installation. Contact your Senators NOW and tell them to vote NO on Cap and Trade, or you will vote no to them in the coming elections.
