“Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land”, noted the American ecologist Aldo Leopold.
As a backdrop for life, rather than illustrating an ongoing battle for supremacy, nature offers us an example of harmony.
Striving for harmony in our daily activities, possibly attempting to balance things we are obliged to undertake with those we wish to do, takes care and attention. But as the seasons change and we progress through life, just like the castle wall our objectives may provide protection against the fickle winds of the moment.
Holding our goals in mind is something we can do regardless of the work we have to complete. Today’s efforts form tomorrow’s results. Being conscious of this can itself lighten the burden of heavy or tiresome chores.
Harmony: cooperation, collaboration, coaction. The words may change yet the spirit remains the same.
