Life is a song.  It has its own rhythm of harmony.  It is a symphony of all things which exist in major and minor keys of Polarity.  It blends the discords, by opposites, into harmony which unites the whole into a grand symphony of life.  To learn through experience in this life, to appreciate the symphony and lessons of life and to blend with the whole, is the object of our being here.
