LET"S WORK TOGETHER

A great song from the early 1970's was one by Canned Heat called Let's Work Together.I loved this song when it came out and I was 18 or 19 years old.I have to admit tho at the time I loved it simply because of the music and the beat of the tune and not so much for the words. But as I have grown older and managed to work on my spirituality I now love to hear this golden oldie mostly for the words. A simple ditty it was but filled with much profound wisdom. The lyrics or part of them went like this: Well, united we stand divided we fall come on now people lets get on the ball let's work together and together we'll stand  every boy every girl every woman and man. Those lyrics are just so appropiate even today as it was then,  maybe even more so now. The news is filled every day with stories of wars among nations, anger against one country by others, hate, prejudice, robberies, etc.And until every one of us as humans decide to stop all the fighting and fussing and begin to really work together I'm afraid the same stuff will continue.As Lionel Richie wrote in his song called Sweet Love: If I was at a place where dreams are for dreamers and all you wished came true , I'd wish the world had all happy people, then there'd be no more wishing to do. Wouldn't it be nice if we all could begin to love each other and accept our differences and start working together to bring peace among nations a reality? Yes, I know this is a very big dream I have but I also know I'm not the only one and I will continue to dream of a peaceful world even if it hasn't arrived yet. And I hope you will join with me in this dream because it all starts and ends with each of us. We are all ONE folks and I hope we start realizing that before any more innocent folks are killed or we completely destroy the entire planet we share. I now leave all of you dear friends with thoughts of love, peace, and understanding. Hugs to all of you and if you can today do something nice for someone and start becoming a part of the solution.To you and yours I wish the best of everything now and always.

Namaste brother Ron, another beautiful post. Isn't it wonderful to reach back for the golden oldies to remind us of a time where we all were closer connected to the earth and each other. Hope you enjoy a wonderful week.

Hey Christopher I think a lot of those old songs say it all a lot better than I can.For all the hype about the "HIPPIE" days I sure think we were a lot better off way back then.Thanks for stopping by and the best to you and yours also
