The Harmony Project

Professor David Cadman, one of the founders of SoH Forum, has for the last two years been taking part in the wonderful Harmony Project hosted by the Sustainable Food Trust. He is currently serving as a Harmony Professor of Practice at the University of Wales Trinity St. David.  As our next theme focusses on Harmony, we asked David to tell us about this project and his reflections on harmony: “Of all the texts I have read on Harmony, I have been especially struck by those that come from the ancient teachings of The Tao in which there is only the movement from and towards, and in which what appear to be opposites are revealed as complementarities.  Hot and cold, light and darkness, distance and closeness.  And I have come to see that if you look for opposites (as we mostly do) you will find opposition and discord, whereas if you see complementarities you will find co-operation and a strange peacefulness or ease that is beyond understanding.  And, most especially, you will find Love at Work.”

Wednesday Wisdom – a reflection series about core human values or spirituality in practice

Here is the latest  contribution:

Humility is greatness

Humility is not subservience or undervaluing myself, but the ability to recognise and bow in front of the greatness of others with true appreciation. Humility emerges when I respect myself, not for my roles or my achievements, but by recognising what I am inside, a well-wishing peaceful being and not dependent on approval from others.
