"Imagine all the people living life in peace.......(John Lennon)
Can you just imagine how great this world would be if we all learned to get along and live in peace? I think about that very often but realize there is so much more work to be done until we learn to love each other even more than we love ourselves. But I can still dream! and I will continue to do so even when I see some radical religious group kill innocent folks because they do not ascribe to their beliefs. How strange to hear that there are those who kill and maim others in the name of some God they are trying to push on all of humanity. I just cannot imagine a God who wants innocent people killed because they don't follow some imaginary path to a place that awaits us after death. I really don't get it. Why do we hate others because they don't agree with our way of living? Why do we feel we are always right and the others are wrong? How can a person just kill someone for the sport of it? So much bizarre stuff that goes on in this world is totally beyond my imagination. For a second just try to see a world where every person truly loved each other. The only things we would have to deal with in that case would be accidents or forces of nature such as hurricanes, floods, tornados and the like. We would be able to do away with locks and keys. Imagine leaving your door to your house open all the time while it holds your earthly treasures? Why we could even put our gold on the front doorstep to shine while not being worried someone would take it from us! A world where everybody helped each other. No more wars and the need to spend millions of dollars on weapons. We could instead use that money to see that every human being had enough to eat and a place to stay. I could go on with many more examples but it wouldn't change anything. I know this will not happen, at least in my lifetime but I will keep on dreaming. That is the only way I can survive here, by never giving up hope for all of us to live as one. I know I can't "fix" this world and its problems but I can and I will continue to love others and hope you will to. Just love--that is truly all any of us need. I leave you with thoughts of perfect love, peace, and joy to each of you fine folks. Try to do something nice for someone today and see if it doesn't make you feel better about things. And please keep dreaming of a world where we all live in peace. May the sun keep shining down on your backdoor always!
