Peace. Harmony may be defined as (Webster Dictionary) The just adaptation of 
parts to each other, in any system or combination of things, or in things, or 
things intended to form a connected whole; such an agreement between the 
different parts of a design or composition as to produce unity of effect; as, 
the harmony of the universe or as: Concord or agreement in facts, opinions, 
manners, interests, etc.; good correspondence; peace and friendship; as, good 
citizens live in harmony. So, we may find easily the relation between peace and 
harmony as harmonious relationships bring peace towards the intervenient parts. 
But: How we possibly learn as society how to make our relationships, the net of 
human social relations to become harmonious instead of conflictive? Is 
harmonious different from conflictive? Or is it a "way" to resolve conflicts in 
a harmonious way? In daily life, among people and authorities, into democratic 
parties, into family groups, friends groups, and more, we wi
 ll never
find the absence of conflict. In contrary, we fall on time to time, in many 
situations that remain us of those knots in a golden chain. When a gold medal 
is sustained by a chain, it is so fragile that it makes knots in itself is a 
common thing to happen. There is only one way to resolve the knot and disarm 
it: By using a needle, a metal needle to simply enlarge the knot and make it 
disappear and the chain is again useful and relieved. In human relationships, 
there are many critical "knots", and crisis and it is part of human bondage, so 
it is impossible to avoid conflicts into the social group. But: we may 
transform the crisis, the conflict itself in a useful system or tool to produce 
harmonization in the group relations. How? In front of a wave, we may find 
three different ways of avoiding its destructive effect.1.-By swimming below 
the wave 2.-By jumping over it3.-By surfing the wave. The conflict is a wave of 
sorrow and anguish. In any human group, there are members who av
 oid the
confrontation and simply remain absent, silent, passive and inactive during the 
critical period. There are others who confront the opponent (who differs in 
ideas and ways of thinking) with aggressive bitter expressions. But there is a 
third type of attitude, a third position that reveals the capability of human 
beings to resolve crisis by using a harmonizing way of resolution. They "surf" 
the problem, by managing the language, by using a revolutionary method to 
communicate themselves with the opponents. Let us see the steps in this third 
position: The wave is near. The surfer takes the surfing table and swims on the 
wave.(The member gets into the discussion by messages full of counseling tips 
and doesn't put him or herself in the position of an opponent. He (she) puts 
him or herself in the position of a counselor towards the entire group 
including him or herself too. The surfer stands up over the table and 
harmoniously moves, meticulously by compensating the watery movements 
calculated short and detailed movements of the surfing table...The member 
maintains his/her presence active into the discussion, never stops his/her 
participation, responds to all the messages, always quiet, always serene, 
always focused but never aggressive or bitter. The member keeps the humor, the 
smile, his/her tranquility and makes all kind of efforts to control his-her own 
temper, and impulsiveness, trying to follow up the problem till a good ending. 
This member has found out a system to harmonize the discussion. Then peace 
arrives as a result of a contagious type of communication, a sincere, placid 
and unaggressive way of being into a group. This member has leaded the group to 
a happy ending of the crisis. The rest on time will try to imitate this 
attitude for seeing it as useful. So, I may define social harmony, in a 
practical way, as the result of a human effort in the direction of the 
development of creative, pacific solutions to the social crisis that arrive from
discussions and the unresolved different opinions towards a solution of any
