The Harmony Project
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate
cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King
The Harmony Project is a way for
individuals and small groups to directly and positively change the
world –– and themselves –– with a minimum of effort. It’s a simple,
uncomplicated and powerful way for individuals to positively change
The Harmony project is based on three
The inherent spiritual nature of
every human being
1) Everyone on earth has a spiritual
aspect. In that profound sense, we are all linked on a very
fundamental level. In the Harmony Project, we use this idea to raise
our own vibration, and others as well.
A human being is a divine, immortal Spirit
temporarily associated with a physical body. You either understand
that, or you don’t. If you do, you are capable of reaching the state
of love. Love is the quintessential expression of our inherent
If you know what love feels like, then you
are qualified to participate in the Harmony Project! By love I mean
that powerful, awesome feeling of excitement and connection that
unites all life everywhere. It’s easy to get that feeling back in
your heart. All you have to do is remember a time you fell in love.
Or got a wonderful present. Or saw someone smile. Or looked into the
eyes of your pet. Love is a feeling of warmth that is inherent to
all life everywhere. Love keeps the universe working. It is who we
are at the core of our being. All else is an illusion.
2) What is Quiet Power?
Quiet Power is the expression of love.
Love is serene, calming, quiet, confident, and enormously powerful.
Love doesn’t jabber, shout, or scream. Love is not ostentatious or
ego driven. Love is unconditional. When you love, you give your
heart and soul. Love is exciting, but in a peaceful way.
Love is like giving someone a present. You
wait silently, with eager anticipation, for the smile that comes
when a friend or a loved one opens your gift. That smile is your
reward. It is an acknowledgement of your shared divinity, of your
shared spirituality. There aren’t words good enough to express that
feeling. That’s why I call love, Quiet Power.
The expression of love finds many forms,
in every area of life.
Have you ever noticed that the most
influential people are always those who lead by example? Like Mother
Theresa, or Gandhi. Or maybe, one of your friends. Or maybe your
mother, or one of your relatives. It could be a teacher, a
co–worker, a musician or an artist. Regardless of who it is, the
people you admire most walk the walk, and don’t just talk the talk.
They’re not in the streets yelling and screaming, but quietly going
about their business, demonstrating competence, integrity, and
compassion, showing others the true path by their example.
What is the true path?
It’s just the recognition of who you are.
The cells of your body are made of condensed love. Everything in
existence resonates strongly to this fundamental frequency.
The idea of the Harmony Project is to
quietly open yourself up to the world, leading by example.
Don’t panic! The Harmony Project isn’t
hard, it’s fun! Anyone can do it. It’s done quietly, at your own
pace, and in your own time. You don’t have to sign up for anything,
or study anything, or ask permission from anyone. There aren’t any
rules. Everything you need for the Project is already inside of you.
3) The power of the Harmony Project is
based on the social network. A social network is all of the people
you know. Every country has thousands or millions of social
networks, and they all overlap. These networks are spontaneous and
people–created, unregulated by government or authority. Because of
mobile technology, instant messaging, and email, people are now in
instant communication, so an idea can spread rapidly within your
network and between networks. Millions of people quietly,
voluntarily and positively influencing their social networks has the
same effect as one or two people reaching millions of people on the
It’s better to have millions of people
quietly effecting change on a one–to–one basis within their personal
networks, rather than a couple of people leading on the masses. Why?
Because the idea of “follow the leader” has gotten mankind into
trouble over the past 5,000 years, creating hierarchical societies
with a few at the top and the millions at the bottom. So we simply
by–pass the authorities and, without fighting or resisting the
current order, create a new world.
In the American West, for example,
boomtowns like Silver City, Idaho and Virginia City, Nevada simply
disappeared. No one came in with an army to wipe these places out.
They vanished as a result of natural economic forces. This is what
social networks and endeavors like the Harmony Project will do to
the established order.
What is the Harmony Project?
The Harmony Project consists of two simple
Walk quietly down the street with
love in your heart. The more crowded the street, the better! Repeat
as many times as you feel like it. Or, sit quietly in a café or a
coffee shop, and feel love. You don’t have to DO anything, or make a
big speech, or make a spectacle of yourself. Just sit there feeling
love and observe what happens. You can do this anywhere people
gather. I like to do it at the checkout counter in the supermarket!
You don’t sing, or chant, or talk loudly,
because that would be distracting to others, and could morph into an
ego thing. Just sit or walk quietly and unobtrusively, blending in
with the scenery. When you are around people and feel love, you
quietly affect everyone around you. That’s because love is the most
powerful vibration in the universe. What happens is that the
vibration of love goes quietly, but powerfully, outward from you to
everyone around you, and alters their aura. I’ve done this myself,
and when I am truly in tune with love, people will often look up and
smile. Sometimes, they’ll even stop and want to talk. What you are
doing is literally changing the vibration of those you meet, without
having to argue with them, or “raise their consciousness.” You can’t
know how powerful this can be until you actually do it! And do you
know the best part? It makes you feel great! It can be
addicting, in a good way.
Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see a
miracle right away! The idea of the Harmony Project isn’t to show
everyone how awesome you are (even though you ARE awesome!). It’s
not an ego thing. The idea is first to feel love inside of you, and
to share that love quietly with others. What you are doing when you
radiate love around others, is vibrationally altering their
consciousness. This occurs invisibly, just as radio and micro waves
travel invisibly and find their way to your hand held communications
The second activity is even easier.
When you talk or chat with your friends, bring up something positive
and exciting, and get people talking about it.
For example, I just read an inspiring
speech by a guy who says that mobile phones and social networking
will completely destroy the hierarchical nature of our societies,
returning power and freedom to individuals and away from governments
and powerful elites. In India, poor fishermen have already used
mobile technology to create a people–based market, completely
unregulated by government or big corporations, that efficiently
supplies Indian coastal villages with food. People who were starving
are now fed, and fishermen who were dirt poor are now doing much
better. He says that in ten years, if present trends continue, it
will no longer be possible for a small elite to start a war, or have
economic or political dominance over humanity. Instead of
governments and bureaucracies and elites having power, independent
social networks of people will have power! Now that is something
that excites me!
What excites you? It doesn’t have to be
profound! It could be a good tune you heard, or a podcast, or a
movie, or a book you read. Whatever it is, make sure it is positive,
not negative. Get people thinking and talking about something
That’s it! If you are ready to create some
miracles, go to it! Share your results and successes, and ask
questions, on the
Harmony Project Forum.
You can do the two steps of the Harmony
Project by yourself, or with friends. You can walk silently down the
street as a group radiating love, or sit quietly in a coffee shop,
café, or any other appropriate place. Remember that love is quiet
and powerful, but not ostentatious. The idea is not "wow look at us,
we're awesome," but "we are here to saturate this place with love
and good vibes." A group of people radiating love together is an
enormously powerful force, like the warming rays of the sun that
reach out and touch others. And the best thing is that when you
radiate love, you feel it inside yourself first. So the first person
who benefits is you!
How can you tell whether something you
bring up in part 2) is positive or negative? The answer is, observe
how people react. Are they happy, or sad? Angry or joyful? Apathetic
or excited? I’ve included a scale of emotions from highest to lowest
so you can accurately catalog emotions. Positive emotion is anything
above 2.0 on the scale, and that’s good. Negative is anything below
2.0 on the scale, and you want to avoid that.
Experiment with this and soon you will be
much better at recognizing emotions, and become much more sensitive
to people and how to make them happier. Your relationships will
improve, because you will be more observant. You will also feel more
powerful, because sensitizing yourself to others also makes you more
sensitive to what you like and dislike. So you achieve a state of
higher discernment ands knowledge of self, as well as knowledge of
You can test to see how you are doing. In
the first step, one person acts as an observer. That person
determines the emotional level of the area before you begin, and
then assesses the emotions of the area afterwards. In the second
step, you (or an independent observer) can monitor the emotional
tone of the group before and after the introduction of a topic. In
all cases, the idea is to raise the emotional / vibrational level of
the group. Of course, these observations are subjective, but so is
a feeling of love, or a feeling of happiness, or any positive
Send in your ideas, experiences, and
Share your experiences with others and ask
questions on the
Harmony Project Forum. The Harmony Project is as much about
raising your vibration as it is about transforming others!
People will respond to you in proportion
to how much love you are feeling. Most of us are creatures of habit.
The Harmony Project is an opportunity for you to practice love. The
better you feel, the more amazing result you are likely to get.
How do you feel love?
Well, you just sit quietly and remember a
time when you felt loving towards someone, or someone felt loving
toward you. Then you pick up on that feeling and let it saturate
your consciousness, and the cells of your body. You know what love
feels like, or you wouldn’t be interested in the Harmony Project.
Did you know that of all the emotions, love is the easiest feeling
to let in? That’s because love is the OM, the fundamental vibration
of the universe. Love is in every cell of your body. It’s who you
ARE. Love feels warm and fuzzy and powerful and generous and when
you really feel love, you feel invincible and wonderful and you want
to share yourself with the whole world!
You can get that feeling back any time,
you just have to practice! It’s the most rewarding practice you can
do for yourself, because it sets you up to have a perfect day.
People naturally respond positively to those who feel love. That’s
the idea behind the Harmony Project.
You don’t have to be famous to have a
positive effect. In the past, trying to change the world through
person–to–person contact was time consuming and inefficient, but not
anymore. Today, person–to–person contact is the best way to make
positive changes, because all of us belong to social networks. When
someone gets exited about something, he or she tells everyone in his
or her network and it spreads rapidly. A positive idea can literally
spread itself all over the planet in almost no time at all! This is
how we can create a new paradigm of thought in the consciousness of
The idea behind the Harmony Project is to
raise the background vibration of society, and make it possible for
positive solutions to occur. The human population is growing and
more and more people are reject the old values of deceit,
dishonesty, competition and war. Our species is rapidly approaching
a tipping point, where a quantum leap in consciousness is possible.
A tipping point is defined as the critical point in an evolving
situation that leads to a new and irreversible development. This
irresistible development is the idea that love is more valuable than
hatred, that cooperation is better than conflict, and that human
nature is divine. When enough people have these ideas, our societies
can literally change overnight!
Power isn’t money, or military might.
Power is the ability to control what you think and what you say, and
to spread positive ideas through our social networks. Social change
ALWAYS happens from the bottom up, not the top down. Governments and
corporations are always the last ones to figure it out. The
“establishment” always piggybacks on the great ideas that come from
inspired individuals. The idea of the Harmony Project is to start a
Imagine society not as a bunch of
powerless individuals, but as a collection of dynamically
interacting social networks. Governments and corporations are social
networks as well! They exist, like ships, floating upon the ocean of
national consciousness. That consciousness is established by we the
people, through our social networks. We are the soil upon which our
nation's institutions grow. If these institutions are now corrupt to
the core, it is because we have allowed our planetary and national
soil to become fertile for them. We unconsciously repeat, through
our social networks, the same old stale ideas that have allowed the
present situation to occur.
The idea is to spread love and inspiring
ideas all over the world! We all know how impossible it is to get
large groups of people to agree on what is best –– just look at
politics! The Harmony Project by–passes ideology and belief, and
focuses on love. Love is so powerful that it immediately knocks out
these lower vibrations. If you don’t believe this, then you have to
actually try Step One. If you do it right, you won’t believe the
positive results you will get!
During the past century, the human
population has been increasing at an unprecedented rate. We now have
a unique window of opportunity for a paradigm shift in consciousness
on a national and planetary scale. To replace the tired old memes of
scarcity, conflict, hierarchy, “follow the leader,” and war, with
new ones based upon the recognition of our divine, spiritual nature
and a recognition that it IS possible –– and desirable –– for ALL
humans to experience prosperity and live lives filled with promise
Traditional consciousness raising
activities take a mental approach. “If we can only educate the
masses…” “If we can raise awareness on the dangers of ____(fill in
the blank), we can then offer a solution that will be accepted…”
etc. These approaches almost never work –– unless they graduate to a
process that raises emotional tone –– because they are intellectual
and sterile. Many times, they evolve into competing groups, and then
argumentation and even conflict, because people always have
different opinions. With rare exceptions, this has been the history
of politics in every society on earth.
All successful social movements begin with
a raising of emotional tone. The civil rights movement in the United
States, for example, raised millions of people up the scale of
emotion, which led to inspirational ideas and actions that changed
our society for the better.
The lesson of the past 5,000 years of
human history is that a true paradigm shift in consciousness
cannot come about only through ideas. Copernicus’s realization
that the earth revolves about the sun, and Einstein’s theory of
relativity, revolutionized the way we viewed the universe. However,
they have not led to spiritual and emotional advancement. We are
still exploiting and killing each other in the 21st century just as
we did in 3000 BC.
Unanimous and beneficial agreement can
only occur in an environment of positive emotion. In other words,
ideas that change the world in a positive direction must come
forth from a positive vibration. They must be supported by and
motivated from positive emotion. This is obvious, but as a species,
we don’t do it, because we believe it to be impossible! Enough of us
believe the lie that we are merely biological creatures and that our
inherent nature is primitive.
But human nature is not barbaric and
savage. That is a myth foisted upon the human race by deluded people
who believe that when you die, you’re dead, and by other insecure
and frightened power seekers who believe in hierarchy and
How did the current paradigm get
Long ago in the evolution of our species,
a tipping point in thought was reached. It is impossible to pinpoint
exactly where or when in history this occurred. However it happened,
our species consciousness reflected the memes
of hierarchy, control, victimization, and “follow the leader.”
Argumentation, domination, competition and conflict emerged as the
primary method of problem resolution within and between human
societies. These memes became vibrationally dominant in our
consciousness and have been passed down from generation to
generation, not because they were inherent to human nature or
superior in any way, but merely because they were continuously
activated. In other words, the history of our species has resulted
from a habitual way of thinking. But habits are not natural
laws! Habits of thought and belief exist only because we
continuously pay them homage. Our species is like the dog and the
invisible fence. The dog stops because it believes it must, even
though it could step over the line at any time, and think “out of
If you think about it long enough, you can
understand that the resolution to our global problems cannot come
about only through ideas, or education, or traditional
consciousness–raising activities. That’s because, as we all know,
everyone has different opinions. However, when everyone is feeling
positive emotion, it is very easy to reach agreement! In the Harmony
Project, thousands of individuals quietly and unobtrusively (but
effectively) act to raise emotional tone through their social
networks, which provides the foundation for positive and
effective ideas that will transform our societies.
Role of Beliefs
As a species, we have not made spiritual
advancement because of our beliefs. Beliefs are self–fulfilling
prophecies, for beliefs direct action. Another way to say this is
that actions follow beliefs. A person who believes that money is
hard to get and hold onto will likely continue to be poor, because
he or she will act in ways that do not allow for prosperity. A
person who believes that old people are stupid will disrespect his
elders. A President who believes that war is a good way to resolve
problems will start one. Like the dog and the invisible fence,
mankind has erected prison bars made of thought, that direct actions
into narrow and self–limiting areas. We demand adherence to limiting
sets of beliefs, which have been codified as religion, or
‘tradition.’ When people act outside of these narrow boundaries,
they are seen to be dangerous. Beliefs, however, are just
collections of thoughts. And what are thoughts? Ephemeral things
that can be changed. Only when the background vibration of
society is raised enough, can we change the tenor and content of
thought, on a national and global scale. We have the power in
our hands, right now!
I believe that the Harmony Project would
have been impossible even five years ago, because humanity was not
ready for it. However, world events have spiraled so far out of
control that more and more people understand that change is
necessary. The Harmony Project is designed to nudge this process
along, like a powerful ocean current which carries the ships that
sail upon it.
The way to establish harmony and
cooperation is not to fight against the established order, or that
which is repugnant. Getting people to fight and resist something is
a clever psychological ploy that just continues the unwanted thing.
As Mae West once said, “All pub is good pub.” All she meant was that
it doesn’t matter whether you agree with something, or fight it,
because it’s the same thing: you promote it either way. “Mae West is
a terrible actor!” is almost as good as, “Mae West is a great
actor!” That’s because people say, “Who is Mae West? I’ll look her
When human beings want change, we organize
to fight abhorrent things like poverty and cancer and terrorism. But
in fact, fighting something just makes it bigger. Despite the
War on Poverty, there is more poverty. Despite the War on Cancer, we
still have lots of cancer. In the United States, the War on
Terrorism has resulted in the elimination of our freedoms and civil
liberties, through legislation like the Patriot Acts, the Military
Commissions Act and the Homegrown Terrorist Protection Act.
Successful social and political
movements are based on the creation of something positive, not the
elimination of something negative!
Unfortunately, politics is almost
exclusively the latter.
In Eastern thought, this concept is known
as non–resistance. Non–resistance has been misinterpreted by Western
philosophy to mean, “let yourself get steamrolled.” This is,
however, a distortion of a very powerful and profound idea.
Saying “No” to something is the same as
saying “Yes” to it, because either way, you place your attention on
it, and spread it around. The more we fight terrorism, for example,
the more fear we have, and the more laws are passed restricting our
freedoms. The more we resist climate change and fossil fuels, the
more emphasis we give to fossil fuels. Nowhere is this demonstrated
more clearly than at the climate change conference in Bali (December
2007). Scientists and participants on both sides of the climate
change issue debate whether fossil fuels are the cause of increased
global CO2 emissions. This debate focuses on fossil
fuels, not on the development of clean and alternative energy
This idea is expressed in the universal
principle of ‘like attracts like.’ Whatever you think about and
talk about the most will be what you create, and what you
experience. You can test this in life by living mindfully. When you
become more aware of your thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes, you will
begin to see a correspondence between them and what you manifest in
We have been taught just the opposite,
however. We’ve been taught that we think a certain way because of
the way reality is. But of course, that philosophy is a recipe for
failure, and a life that never changes. Following that line of
thinking turns people into robots, and gets them feeling powerless.
When that happens, people can be easily manipulated, which is what
has happened throughout human history.
So let’s wake up the human race! The
Harmony Project is a great way to quietly and effectively raise the
background vibration of society. In the Revolutionary War, the
United States achieved political freedom from Great Britain. All
intelligent people now understand that modernly, war cannot be the
answer. War and conflict and all that support it are outdated and
pathetic relics of the Old Order! We seek solutions on a much more
powerful level. We need a spiritual, not a political, economic, or
scientific solution. These have all been tried and found wanting. We
need, not a political revolution, but an evolution in consciousness.
The Harmony Project is itself an evolutionary leap, for although we
are in the streets and in the shops, and everywhere people
congregate, we are invisible to the gross forces of authority, and
outside their purview. In our program, we operate in concert with
the higher vibrations, using the subtle, but immensely powerful
energies of love. You see, it is impossible to do the Harmony
Project by yelling and fighting, for love does not do that. In the
higher vibrations, we use Quiet Power. We are Revolutionaries of
