Harmony is often emphasized in esoteric circles as a goal of the seeker on the mystical path. By achieving harmony within, the mystic accomplishes a fusion with the divine essence and transcends the purely physical appetites, aspirations, and limitations of corporeal existence. In this podcast , we examine what harmony is, using references to familiar forms of harmony from music, the arts, and the sciences. We then examine the effect harmony has on its surroundings to discern whether harmony is the actual goal or, more precisely, a tool for effecting beneficial change. Finally, by drawing parallels between musical and mystical harmony, we explore some of the direct and indirect uses of mystical harmony in today’s society.

Symbolism can be defined as the investing of outward things or actions with an inner meaning, most often for the expression of religious or mystical ideas. Symbolism has a far greater presence in history and even contemporary culture than most realize. More than an ancient, esoteric discipline, it really serves as the centerpiece for an entirely new modern philosophy and understanding of the world. We hear from Steven Armstrong, Research Librarian at Rosicrucian Park on this fascinating subject. Part two investigates a case study in symbolism: the cross throughout history. (Part two of two)
