This ability to draw conditions to us has tremendous practical implications. It means we can use our thoughts to create the life we want. It means that we can really change for the better. It means that things no longer have power over us, for we realize that they are just the manifestations of our thoughts, and nothing more. They are thought forms reacting to the signals we project. The principle of Harmony and Rhythm is perhaps best expressed in the magic of music!
Music is a powerful influence in our daily lives. There are three basic ingredients of music: melody, harmony and rhythm. Melody
and harmony are universal in nature. The solar system maintains its order because of the vibrations of each individual planet. They comprise a chord of music which is unique to our place in space. Rhythm belongs to the earth. It is the method whereby a song is broken up into measures and notes are assigned different values of time. It is the rhythm or beat of a song which involuntarily sets your toe to tapping. It is the ingredient of time.
There is another ingredient of music which is absent in some music. When it is present, it changes lives. Even plants and animals respond to it! What is this fourth ingredient? It is LOVE! When music contains this element, it performs miracles! It sets into motion natural forces which begin a tumbler-like action, a turning of the tide in the lives of people.
